US and International distributors orders......that's a lotta LE sold!

#2 8 years ago

Once release I bet they sell FAAAAAAAST!

#3 8 years ago

Any idea what the total production run looks like?

#4 8 years ago

So it's $6,500 for the LE. What's the price estimate for the "normal" WOZ?

1000 LE

As many normal as can be sold - price has not been set.

Its supposed to be $7500 for those who arent on the pre-order.

$7500 is for left over, unsold LE's......if any left.

Price for regular more likely to be under $6500.

I disagree completley. I think it's more likely to be much higher. Nothing ever get cheaper.

I don't think there will be any left over LE's and if there are it's more likely he will have to raise the price to maybe 8000. The normal machines may be as high as that also. He will have to make up for short commings somewhere.

Oh one more thing... What is going to happen when 6.5 Million is taken from the pinball market? That's how much JJ is planning on taking from the market.

Can Stern afford that hit? Ebay sales will take a hit as well? I can already see the prices of machines falling and they will continue to fall as owners dump thier old machines for the new WOZ.

6.5 Million has to come from somewhere...Common sense tells me prices will fall on some of the more expensive ebay sales. I can see it already.

6 months ago MM was selling for 10,000 now they are down around 8000. Owners are looking at that and selling now before they drop even more.

Well, JJ has indicated the regular version will be cheaper than the LE, so would expect it to be less than $6500. That seems to be the jist of the conversation. No one would buy a regular for more than an LE surely ?

Agree totally that the used pin market may take a hit, especially in the US. Not so much in Europe as not many will be imported. Long term the trend may continue and if the Hobbit is pin number 3, I may start to have to save now!

Yes, Jack has said the "regular" version will be priced less than the LE. So that should mean less than $7500. $7500 is the "normal" LE price for people that did not pre-order. So you could end up paying the same or slightly more for "regular" version than what the pre-order crowd paid for a LE.

Clear as mud?

#12 8 years ago

That is as clear as it gets for now

The issues re pricing that Wes mentioned is supply and demand.......but if WOZ is a disappointment, people will want their MM's back!!

#13 8 years ago

IT"SSSS SOOO CLLEEEAAAARRRRR!

It's a "LIMITED EDITION" buy it...
All adult pinheads should have at least ONE in their "arse"nal...

If it makes you feel better on the price.
Ask Jack for a FREE t-shirt!

I flashed my boobs for one...
(Not really- but I will when I see him!)

The fact that they have sold over 500 of them at $6,500 a pop without a single photo of the playfield being released is pretty darn impressive to say the least.

#15 8 years ago

I am seriously considering keeping mine as NIB. I wish I was rich enough to have ordered two.
It does make me wonder how many might do the same thing that could afford multiple machines.

I really like some of the LCD animations they have come up with so far. (Still no Dorothy boobies though )

#16 8 years ago

LCD animations? Where did you see these?

Like the playfield layouts and schematics leaked they are also that kind of thing. They are still playing around and deciding what goes into production. My inside guy sent me a few of them.

I agree, but I don't think it will disappoint.
I also agree with BD, I wish I could afford 2.

Keep in mind if it is really the best effen machine ever made......Every and I mean Every collector is going to want one. They will sell 5 machines if they have to but they will get one. What will that do to the price of older machines?

#19 8 years ago

I'm super excited to see WOZ either way, I hope I get to actually play it someday...

For me personally, I can't wait to play it but the theme is not one I ever liked. If it is really great, then the unlicensed theme, interests me a lot. So, I am happy to sit and watch on the sidelines and wait for pins 2 and 3.

Also there are many older pins I would love to pick up Trying to decide between TOM and CV and then I have to find one at the right price/right condition....not easy at all!

#21 8 years ago

I'm seriously considering an offer on my dancing lady machine to offset the WOZ cost. It' $1200 and I may take it. I only paid a third of that. A guy wants it for a gift to his fiance who is in the Fort Wayne ballet. (And he gets a pinball guy toy too )

P.S. As a teaser one of those animations is those dam$ flying monkeys coming in and taking something away ... I hate those flying monkeys already !!!

(Still no Dorothy boobies though [] )

BD it's a 26" LCD screen - would she even come close to "filling that out"?

I think we've all made a good decision getting in early. I was definitely skeptical at first, but after what I've seen and heard, I'm glad I got in. Buying a second one would be nice, but could it not be risky with 1000 in production?

If the other game prices drop due to this, sounds like another good opportunity to move in on those older games we just aren't willing to drop the moolah for.

Would you trade a new WOZ LE, for a working MM? hmmmmm

#23 8 years ago

I wouldn't trade my new WOZ NIB LE for any MM!....I can play MM on the playstation 3 and get my thrills, WOZ is gonna be epic and I love the theme......based on the most popular slot machine in Vegas history......

I agree Wes, gonna take a bite out of other business initially but I think it will bring more people into the hobby like myself over the long run.....

When I figure out how to fix these damn things I'll start buying some older ones.....thanks to Tomdotcom for the full blown "Repair tools list"........
