    With a weaker $AUD, it was inevitable that pinball machines imported from the US were going to go up in price. Wonder if they will come down just as fast when the $AUD becomes stronger.

    Anyway, At $8,850 for a new Stern Pro, it's getting tougher to justify a purchase

    The current stock (going up in price) part definitely got the spidey senses tingling. Some titles are from a year ago & they’ve somehow spontaneously increased in price.

    Price excludes shipping.

    The sneaky part in all of this is the increase in price of older games / older stock (like Stern’s Star Wars) that were purchased with a stronger AUD over a year ago and now they’ve gone up too - it doesn’t make sense.
