Quoted from DJHens:
I’m brand new to the hobby, and I am very interested in purchasing a new Star Wars Pro. I want to wait until after I move in February though.
I know it was released June 2017. Do you think I will still be able to get it NIB in February? How long does Stern keep new machines available after initial release?
The short answer is yes, in my opinion, you shouldn’t have any troubles finding them NIB. Stern licenses usually run 3 years more or less. But whether they produce more before license runs out depends on demand.
That said; I think street price for the pro right now is roughly $5600 shipped + tax (if you’re in a tax state). Come February 2020, that price may change. One other thing that will affect price is availability. If stern plans to not run anymore Star Wars pros come 2020, distributors may tack on an extra $100 or more dollars for their remaining stock.
NIB Pinball pricing is tricky. If thousands of machines have been made and sold and a bunch are still in distributor stock, but the manufacturer is no longer making them, the NIB price may go up even though secondary HUO prices are likely to be going down. On the flip side, if only a few hundred machines are made, and the manufacturer is still making them, NIB price will remain idle, while the secondary HUO price will depend on location supply/demand.
All in all. My opinion on SW pro is there will be plenty to be had it’s current market price at any given time.
