So since the voice actors are greedy and can't agree to take a 40% pay cut, it sounds like this will be the last season. Do you think the pin will suddenly be even more collectible? There are some die-hard simpsons fans that have nothing to do with pinball, but would probably want one anyway.

I know I made my first pin space shuttle, knowing there are a lot of NASA fans that will want one. My wife ordered patches from all the missing missions she didn't have yet, and the first week after the last mission, the store was on backorder for weeks.

They just signed a new 2 year contract.

I heard Fox and the voice actors came to some sort of agreement and the Simpsons will live for another 2 years at least. Not sure of the impact on TSPP prices.

When it does, look for it to get the same spike "24" did when it got canceled. Oh, wait...

You can still find them around, usually sub $3500 in "ex-cellent" condition, so I am not worried yet.
Good to hear they came to an agreement.
Now, Futurama me Gary...

I quit watching Simpson's a long time ago, there are way better series today. I cant understand why there isn't a Futurama game out there, the theme is like made for pinball, almost impossible to fuck that up.

"Eww, it's like a party in my mouth, and everyone's throwing up"

The two are not even in the same league. (Still funny though) I'm talking shows. I've only played Simpsons Pinball Party. I have no idea how 24 plays.

The show has been around so long I do not think it will change the pin price.

The show still going on is likely hurting the price...

Yes, just look at the Data East Simpsons pin.
