Quoted from sammiesguys:

Im not buying into the hype on any game again. I'm holding out for WOZ anyway. From what I hear, it's supposed to sing show tunes and blow you.

LMFAO! You have literally been on fire days!

I think Stern may go back to the model of having multiple different LE's to pick from in the future once or twice, but they sure made a good decision only doing one this time and most of the time. Pinball machines are impulse buys . . . don't give people too much to decide over or they will struggle to make any decision at all and the machines won't sell out in six hours.

Give them one machine so there is but one decision to make, buy it or don't. That gets the impulse buy.

Quoted from mnpinball:

Just doing quick figures. All numbers are rounded to make it easy but you get the point.
500 LE at $7k is $3.5 Million
Gravy money after the first $1M. As Gary always states it takes $1M to design and build a game.
So for shits and giggles....
4000 premium at $6500 is $26,000,000 MILLION$$$
Times are good for Stern.
I heard AC/DC has sold over 6000 units.
Metallica could surpass that.

I'm glad they are making money. Good for their investors that came in and saved a dying company. Good for the other start ups like the Predator boys (among others) to see there is real money to be made in this industry.

Bring on more competition making more pins and continuing to give us more options. Let's roll; the hobby is apparently even healthier than many people had thought.
