What value will the CE hold in the future?

Quoted from Yelobird:

Lol. Thats about what I was quoted! When did the pinball hobby start evaluating games by rate of returns like a 401k? lol

LOL - Mini investments for me with some fun in between

Quoted from estrader:

Thinking about picking one of these up but have a couple questions for you guys who have recently purchased one.
1. Is there chipping under the sling post or did jjp put some type of washer under them?
2. Any problems out of the box besides a couple of rails being damaged? How much time did it take you to dial it in?
3. With how deep the game is do your children have trouble understanding the goals to progress in the game? (my kids are all under the age of 8 )
I appreciate any feedback....Thank you

1. No chipping, no washer for the metal posts. I do have minor pooling on the lower slings around the upper metal posts - Looks like the posts are at a very slight angle that cause some pooling on that side... trying to decide to file a claim in case it starts chipping at some point. Star posts seem ok.

2. My backbox is showing some dried “glue” or
Something at the top where the side connect to the top. I have cleaned up pretty well but thought was kind of sloppy work, not sure if anyone else had this issue? Also, be careful with the left side blade, the playfield is too tight that it will cause damage when you raise, I have ordered some protectors mentioned in this thread and may see about getting a new left blade. I slightly increased the flippers to my liking and dialed back the ball ejector. I may also add some lighting as the game is pretty dark compared to my GNR.

3. Kids love the game with or without the rules... I think this one will stay for a long time as we all have smiles while playing

Anyone know if the price on WW NIB increased $1k? Noticed today some CEs selling NIB at $13,500...

Would be great to understand what is driving this up after the announced increase on GnR... supply/demand?

Orange County Pinball's listed price is $15K.

Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

Yep - Classic Game Rooms raised their Wonka CE prices $1,000 to $13,500 yesterday.
CoinTaker was already charging $13,500 and Orange County Pinball's listed price is $15K.

Glad I got in on this earlier!

Quoted from zaphX:

Out of curiosity what held you back for the last two years?

Really just getting into pinball last October... Started w/ GnR SE, loved it... now WWCE love even more (way different and more challenging to me). Can’t wait to see what comes next from JJP.
