What was the most anticipated day I have seen in pinball the last 5 years has turned into the most disappointing and depressing for my view of the hobby. The greed is disgusting and will tarnish the historical record of those involved in the management of the pinball manufacturing companies.

Quoted from Banker:

I originally committed to buying every NIB LE, however with the recent 25-40% increase in cost, bang for the buck,
comes into a new perspective. It's a hobby, not a need, and most collectors , may choose to pass in favor of older nice
Pins. Even when money is not an issue , value , obsessions , and manufacturers believing consumers are stupid,
always results in markets shrinking .

Holy shit, the Banker has spoken negatively about the present state of NIB pinball.....err sort of.
