All of the original hype revolved around how much money all of the speculators were going to make and how much smarter they were to make the deposit/payments. are they really making much? I'm
not talking about how much they are asking but rather how much they are actually selling for. if there aren't a bunch of unique toys and the only advantage to the LE is the exclusiveness of having a machine that is limited to 1500 units then the real question is did they make enough to justify having their money tied up for 18-24 months.
over that same 18-24 month period they could have bought games, flipped them for a slight loss or profit and then used that very same cash to buy a non LE WOZ that might actually be more exclusive than the LE.
there are a finite number of pinball owners. adding an additional manufacturer doesn't mean the number of units sold will increase two fold. a guy that has two machines won't got to four because there is another player. a location with one pin won't automatically place two machines just because there are two manufacturers. will that finite number stay the same? no. maybe total units sold will increase ten to fifty percent when you add an additional manufacturer. so how many plain versions of WOZ will jj sell? will there even be 1500 regular versions sold? when they finally complete the run of 1500 LE's and then start the regular version will there be enough time to sell 1500 or more before the hobbit starts selling?
what are your thoughts? are the original purchasers making enough to justify the wait? will jj sell more than 1500 plain versions?
