I am looking to possibly pick up an MBR. Are the SE (or LE for that matter) lighting effects really worth the price difference over the CE? I just don't see how you can loose on a 6k NIB MBR for down the road resale wise.

Quoted from GCS2000:

Imho 100% yes. You also get the XL display with the SE. The SE is the one to buy of the three if you ask me

Elaborate on your opinion if you can. I am thinking that if I go SE, I mine as well go for the shaker and topper on the LE?

The upgraded monitor on the SE/LE does look frickin awesome.....

Quoted from Zablon:

I have the LE, but I think you could live without the topper. You don't really notice it when playing. You can add a shaker if you want, but it isn't heavily utilized in this game. The display and lighting is really where the wow factor is. That being said...it's not THAT much more...

I'm with you. Any recommendations on who to get one from? I know there was a vendor running a special on show use ones (CE and SE) from MGC and I reached out to him.

Here are some unboxing shots of my CE. I've always wanted an MB and I think CC absolutely nailed it. The game is downright gorgeous and plays excellent right out of the box. None of the issues people are mentioning here. It is an extremely faithful reproduction of one of the best games ever made.

Special shout out to Chris at KingPin games who went above and beyond to get me this game today. A great dealer to work with. Excellent communication.

Enclosed are some un-boxing shots.

I went with a show used CE. Basically a brand new Monster Bash with warranty for $5500. The game plays perfect and is probably one of the most satisfying pinball purchases I have ever made. I doubt I will even mod it...not even the color chip. Just having a MB with a perfect cabinet, ramps, playfield, etc. is good enough for me. Four years ago, I was trying to find a decent project MB and the prices were insane.......

Quoted from Only_Pinball:

The color chip is DEFINITELY worth the $400!

Well, there begins the slippery slope of mods and I would probably just try to find a used SE or LE. I could add the color chip, art blades, a topper, some upgraded RGB lighting and I would have.........a modified CE with 1k in mods.

Nah, for as much as I play it and only glance at the DMD, I think I will keep it the way it is. I am pretty sure if the right deal on an SE or LE came along, I could get my money out of the CE.

Quoted from indybru:

I went with the same show special deal as post 5676 gearheaddropping. I'm good with what I have and not having the color chip works for me.
I have plenty of other pins with bells and whistles and have no color chip in 4 other pins. So half my collection have them and half doesn't.

Best deal in pinball IMHO....
