Which version do you like best, for the money? To me, the Pro looks best. I love the contrast of the blue and pink. However, I would sure like drop targets and the balls ejected from the mouth for multiball. I would like the LE, as it will be loaded, but I don't like the red rails (looks like AC/DC copycat to me.) Perhaps the premium is a compromise. I'm pretty interested in getting a Kiss machine, but just can't decide which version is best. kiss.jpg

IMO the Premium is well worth the extra cash for the upgrades. I was pretty set on a Pro but knew I would regret not getting the upgrades. So I switched to a Premium. The LE is just cosmetics which aren't worth it to me. I'd rather put my cash into the gameplay/experience. I'm not a fan of the red armor either. I will say the backglass on the LE looks awesome. But not $1000+ awesome.

First of all don't pay the prices you posted.
But, for this game a premium seems to be the best value for game play.

Those arent the actual prices, so there's no point in discussing them. For this title I think the Pro is the best value. Street price is under $5k shipped.

Quoted from Russell:

Best for the money is a relative term that only you can answer with your gut, your wallet, and a crystal ball. A Pro may be cheaper but an LE may increase in value above MSRP (unlikely but happens on occasion). I normally recommend the minimum model with all the game play features included.

For the LE, orange or purple or maybe yellow would be better than red. Red or purple would work on the premium not sure why Stern can't color the Premium armor. The pro would benefit from purple or that pinkish hue. Pinball refinery usually does a good job selecting a good color for the Pro armor. Need mockups

I agree, what good is the poll if you are comparing list price. Poll should be street price to be meaningful.
