I guess I'm un-sophisticated, I liked the pin and the knight. Couldn't see the real draw for the upper PF in the premium model, Pro seemed to be a good value. The only thing I could whine about would be the 'meh' artwork on the translite - IMO.

Quoted from drfrightner:

You and I totally agree, the playfield is barren and yes Stern is slacking big league. Why? Because people within this very community are allowing them to get away with it. Everyone holds JJP to this standard that is so unrealistic its not even funny, yet they release games like POTC which is a flat out masterpiece. They take 1 to 2 years to release each game love them or not they're trying to be the best, deliver something new with each game.
What is Stern doing? I can answer that one... they have the best dealer situation which allows them to slack. They have the best licenses and use the license as the reason to buy rather than the game itself. They're flooding the pinball community with new games on top of new games on top of new games... and they're making a fortune because suckers are paying $9000 for a Black Knight LE that isn't worth $5000 dollars.
Can someone ANYONE tell me how Black Knight LE is worth the same price as a Wonka LE? Please someone explain that? I'd love to hear it!
Just remember this the very second you buy a Black Knight any model, you're going to take an instant 1000 to 1500 haircut and it will only get worse as time goes on. Look at POTC every game I see for sale is going for over 10k... they bought it they enjoyed it and now they're making a profit. Explain that one! LOL
The same will never be said for Beatles, Munsters or Black Knight three strikes in a row!
Here is the bottom line, if you don't hold Sterns feet to the fire you'll never see any innovation, or little to no effort to change the game! Hold Stern to the fire the same that everyone holds JJP to the fire. Its only fair. Black Knight is a CHEAP game, and with virtually no license being paid, they could have afforded a topper on every game, upper playfield on every game, and something other than cheap see thru plastic cut outs of a knight.
Guys you have to get real here... $9000.00 for Black Knight LE, could buy you a car, could pay off some debt, a chunk of a mortgage or jump into the stock market. For 9k you better get something special and Black Knight is anything but special and the same goes for Beatles and Munsters.
3 years from now what will be worth more a good Fish Tales or Black Knight? I already know the answer FISH TALES!
People need to stop obsessing about new pinball games when there is virtually hundreds of awesome games already out there you've never owned for 1/3 the price. You want a new STERN let them PROVE TO YOU it's worth YOUR money! Let the locations buy them, go play them, and make the decision. I will not be buying anymore Stern games sight unseen ever again due to be grossly underwhelmed. Just an opinion, your opinion may differ and I can respect that the same that I hope you respect mine.
Interesting everyone trying to sell their POTC are asking over 10k... they bought it, enjoyed it, and now they want a profit. Funny huh? That will never happen with Black Knight, Beatles or Munsters three strikes in a row! Just saying.

I think there is a very real possibility of getting a BK for just a hair over 5K (Pro) - and that's where the sweet spot is with this game. It is fast and fun, and the crowds at the NW show proved that without a doubt.

There's no reason I saw to go for the LE or Limited, the top PF just didn't add anything compelling to the game play. I actually enjoyed it more than I did the Wonka. Not as much as ACNC, but that's another post.

You, sir, are welcome in my game room anytime. It's a common sense and bitch-free zone. You'd fit right in.

And both of you old *astards are welcome into my game room anytime you make a trip up to Alaska
