Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:
$1,000 for a different cab and backglass art package is a decent amount IMO. Not to mention getting to play the pin before buying it instead of pulling the trigger based on pics and hype. Getting the chance to play it first is enough for me. But as always to each their own.
I would agree that $1k is a decent amount of difference, but that is *not* the difference in price between an LE and Premium if you pre-ordered from a good distributor. In fact, it is almost half that!
If you are going to pre-order a pin without playing it first, it makes zero sense to me to not get the LE. What reason would there be to pre-order a Premium? They will make plenty of them, so you can play it first then decide. That's exactly the route that I'm taking.
