    Quoted from xTheBlackKnightx:

    Three plastic translites do not equal one quality back glass.

    At Expo George and Gary specifically pointed out that they choose their LCD size so that the backbox art would still be there and be prominent. They said backbox art is an important part of pinball history that they didn't want to lose it like Heighway and JJP have done with their full LCD backbox designs. Its too bad Stern didn't take it a step farther and decide to use a real mirrored backglass as well. Especially considering the price of the SLE.

    I also thought at expo someone said the SLE would get three translites shown plus a 4'th unique one. If that's true than I guess there's a chance that could end up being an old school mirrored backglass?

    Quoted from Astropin:

    If that's true then a lot of distributors are going to be sitting on a lot of unsold Wrestlemania's.

    Just because says the MSRP of a game went up doesnt mean the distributor will sell it for that price. With the exception of a high demand LE model who pays MSRP anyways?

    For games already in a distributors stock they sell them for whatever they want. They already paid for them. Just like a car dealer, If the games dont sell then the price will come down eventually.

    Quoted from iceman44:

    Confirmed by JJ at Gex. Floor is being raised across the board, including dealer stock

    I dont see how thats gonna work with older titles that arent selling like WWE. Distibutors dont have unlimited warehouse space, when things dont sell the price has to come down.
