Yes,
That's right I sold my GB LE before it was delivered to my house.
I am sad about it but I am a realistic person. I works two jobs and I am
not made of money. I threw out what I thought was a crazy number for any
pinball machine $10,000 and someone bought it. I love pinball but I can not
justify having that much money tied up in one pin.

I can't tell if your bragging or want us to feel sorry for you?

#4 3 years ago

Scandalous! Your money, your life. Who cares what others think?

#5 3 years ago

I get it. I turned down a $10k offer on my machine, but I did think twice...

#6 3 years ago

psshhhh, why not sell it. Its a lot of money and you alone should feel comfortable spending it

10K I'd call you a dumbass if you didn't...unless you're rolling in cash.

If you're worried about people hating then maybe just, oh... use some discretion and don't make a thread about it? In your shoes I'd have done the exact same thing, minus posting about it haha.

Yeah, I don't know who this guy is and not sure why I should care....but, since he brought it up - I've been forced to choose a side...and I've chosen

Selling it for 10k was definitely the smart thing to do. But posting it? Not so much.

Drinks are on you!

They should have bought yours for $9,995 !!

#19 3 years ago

The buyer is probably the one that will be feeling the remorse. So congrats!

#20 3 years ago

When I decided I didn't want my KISS LE before it was delivered, I rang my distributor and told him to pass it along the waitlist. What an idiot I was.

No doubt about that!

And $8k isn't "crazy for any one pinball machine"? But $10k is

Good move, working two jobs, nice $2k score.

he still has it

#23 3 years ago

Receipts or it didn't happen.

#24 3 years ago

From what gather he is not the only one to get 10k wonder how many people have actually paid that

#25 3 years ago

This reminds me of when METLE went on sale. There were not enough so people were paying a premium...

until a few weeks later.

So in hind sight would Stern have made 800 of these?

Thumbs up OP, and I don't mind you posting about it. Be smart, carry that philosophy forward multiple times and you may end up with a collection entirely paid for. Or at least heavy in equity.

With his profit, this means he could get the premium GB for around $4300 NIB. - Not bad and worthy of someone working two jobs.

What kind of Dunce would spend that on Ghostbusters lol!!! Not too sure why you would post this but enjoy that extra 3k

You did not err. I also turned my Kiss LE back to my dealer (who was very gracious about it) and it is still sitting there!! You did not leave anything on the table on that one

Did he sell it for 11k

#34 3 years ago

I'd have posted it just for conversation. Not sure why the hate on here, but... Yeah. I'd have sold it for $10k too

#35 3 years ago

The only way this thread will become even remotely interesting is if the moron who paid the cabbage comes in with his side of things.

Good move. Take the money.

Now, if you want, you can buy a Premium for $6500, less the $2000 you made, so $4500 for a brand new Premium. Which is the same game.

That's got to be a good move in anyone's books.

15k by Christmas.

No, I don't think so. When premiums start rolling down the line, LEs will be $8000 by Christmas.

Sarcasm...

Ouch - I'm sorry to learn of your financial windfall. If I can be of any assistance, please feel free to mail me a check to ease your pain...

What a great "hobby" we are all part of where pinballs can exchange hands possibly multiple times before they are even produced... "Don't hate" when stern decides to no longer limit production, or requires shipment to address on file at the time of the order. I would rather see the cash go to the manufacturer rather than the speculators... What do you bring to the hobby? Answer -Nothing- just like a day trader in the stock market...

I would love to see Stern use this very thread as justification to make 500 more LE's!

#46 3 years ago

So one of these must be worth 20 grand now.
