Quoted from pinstor12:

^^^^Yep, HUO will be out there for a good bit less. Might snag one in a year or so........ Game looks great.
An attack will come in 3,2,1.....

You will likely be able get an original pro MM for less than the full featured HUO premium MMr. Only time will tell though!

Having no coin mechs would not have changed my decision to get an MMR LE but should have been revealed earlier.

On a different note, I do believe future pin remakes will be much harder to predict demand and certainly will not be able to command the pricing levels that MMR does.

Top Pins to remake IMO (and would have sufficient demand with little to no rule changes):

Medium Tier Pricing:
1) Circus Voltaire (Demand apparent, Unique Layout)
2) Monster Bash (Demand apparent, risk of another oversaturated fan layout - improved code to increase difficulty would make this a big seller)
3) AFM (Much bigger risk of oversaturated fan layout - I know it is popular but wonder if NIB market is there for it)
4) CC (more due to rarity but demand risk - do people really want this)

Next Level Tier (more demand risk):

5) TOM - if code changes are made
6) TOTAN - if code changes are made
7) AF - a lot of these are out there

Looking forward to getting my MMR LE with Shiney Black trim.

Quoted from YZRider926:

Wow out of all the stuff to complain about. I think out of all my machines, I have probably put less then $1 worth of quarters through them, including arcade machines. I get the for the money comments, but do think Rick provided a good reason, as most people that would actually need these are going to need to switch them out due to currency or want to put better mechs in anyways. As was said earlier you could always go buy a routed one where the operator removed the mechs as well.

Wow.... is right of all the routed and NIB pins I have ever owned came with Coin Mechs... Your comment is questionable...

Quoted from jrawlinson_2000:

You missed the obvious BIG seller!!!
i.e. the most expensive pin on the second hand market (except for Pinball Circus, which is being re-run).
That being Big Bang Bar, oh and PPS have just obtained the rights....
I wonder why....

I personally believe BBB is not as big a seller as CV or MB. People want it due to rarity but like cc would carry a lot of demand risk. It is an ok player but the Adult theme is going to limit he market. I would never be able to put one in my basement. I like Pinball Circus but I hear the code is limited on it. Pinball Circus would do better as a limited run (100 or less) from a boutique builder.

Quoted from lapean111:

You guys need to calm down. It's 12 bucks. Like Lloyd said, most operators change out the coin mechs anyway, as they have a preferred type they use. For home use, it's not needed, and if you want one, spend the $12.

So do you have a MMR LE on order?

Quoted from viper001:

If Rick is able to sell 1500 total MMr games, less 2 plastic coin mechs each, that only comes to $36,000 in extra profit on the project. A mere drop in the bucket in the grand scheme of things...

Why would you assume he is paying retail. Assuming 100% markup the real extra profit is $18,000. The thing I struggle with not knowing earlier was they were checking every part against blue prints. I find it hard to believe it was unintentially missed.

Quoted from scott_freeman:

f. Surprise! world has got out that JJP froze the deposits? What, you missed the announcement? I missed it to.
I read about the JJP freeze in a thread that a guy had to sell his order at a $300 loss.

This is Jacks issue: but long term it will push customers to PPS to buy direct. Future remakes will likely have customers line up to PPS first then others as a fall back.
