Quoted from Saveleaningtower:
someone who ordered a new one could be dead by the time it comes out. the value of original mm is unaffected until the new ones roll off the line. the anticipation of supply and supply are two completely different things. i wouldn't want a remake as my restored mm, which is never leaving, is awesome. but the idea that orig mm is now $7500 when the remake is a year away is ridiculous.
OR..people are smart enough to see the supply coming and want to sell now and take a smaller hit rather then wait and loose a lot more when there here, that’s my take.. I would buy a brand new one for 8k before I bought a used old one... were not talking classic cars here. or as my TZ says.."Its only pinball".. flame suit on just in case..
