    Better get your Batman SuperLEs before the big price increase....

    #62 2 years ago
    Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

    Ive had to buy a lower grade health Insurance Because prices have gone up.
    Ive had to take a lower cost vacation, because of Price Increases.
    Ive started to take a tight look at food, because of increases.

    Lets hope you're not having to cut corners in the kush department.

    Reality is they have to pay for the replacement playfield program somehow.

    #180 2 years ago

    Only one more to complete the collection.

    Quoted from Rockytop:

    That would look good next to Clint

    Clint would shoot that dude that looks like an old lady and not ask any questions.

    Quoted from Rondogg:

    Is there no possible way to inspect a game before taking delivery of a NIB? Honest question...

    If you buy it from a distributor that is willing to unbox it, which some do, then yes. But you'll have to go there.

    #258 2 years ago

    It's a taxing hobby....

    #367 2 years ago

    I don't see what everybody's complaining about.

    All the raises and bonuses pinsiders will be getting at their places of employment should be more than enough to cover it.

    #369 2 years ago

    And the stock market's going to the moon! It's boomtime in boomtown!

    #373 2 years ago
    Quoted from iceman44:

    Winna winna chicken dinna
    Boom boom. I'll take 5 SLE's please.

    Is there a way to purchase stock in Stern? I foresee BIG earning potential there. Stern futures FTW!

    #376 2 years ago

    I hope I get the same Christmas bonus I always get.

    I'm out of the market, but people thought I was nuts saying it would take off after the election if it turned out the way it did. Nothing lasts forever though...

    #414 2 years ago

    Zombies said it long ago.

    #416 2 years ago

    Noone was complaining when Williams was installing translites on the number one game right now.

    #457 2 years ago

    These prices are outrageous. Tell them no! And go hungry....

    Quoted from Kiwipinhead:

    At least there is a bright side, We pay less for a big Mac.

    Stern is trying to make a statement that they are no longer the McDonalds of pinball.

    #473 2 years ago
    Quoted from Hazoff:

    Yeah but its the GB theme that caused that hunger

    It made me want to puke.

    #552 2 years ago
    Quoted from taylor34:


    Glad I don't see it that way. Another 40 year old theme that's run it's course.

    #592 2 years ago

    Up until just a few short years ago, pinball was struggling to survive.

    The revival in the 90s lasted about 10 years thankful partially to a resurgence of games on route and several manufacturers making machines. One of the biggest booms in pinball ever during the 70s lasted about the same.

    It would be highly optimistic to think the boom of the last few years will outlast any of those.

    #598 2 years ago

    Eventually there's no where to put them all too.

    #612 2 years ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Pinball will have a bigger problem when there is an economic crisis in the US

    Historically, pinball has done it's best during the worst economic times.

    The 30s was the biggest decade ever for pinball right in the middle of the great depression. The 70s was it's second biggest decade and then pinball started to die out just as the economy took off. The early 90s were kind of flat economically, and we saw another resurgence in pinball.

    The latest boom in pinball started shortly after the worst economic crisis since the great depression, so who really knows what effect a future economic downturn will have on it.

    Quoted from gearheaddropping:

    These price increases have pushed me back into the lower/mid market games including EM's.

    Price increases had nothing to do with my interest in EMs, or classic solid state Ballys for that matter. Besides great game play, I also have to look at them when they are off, which I like to do.

    At no time have I ever considered wanting to fully decorate my house with what looks like movie or concert posters from the 70s and 80s. I prefer original art with style and class and that's what suits me best

    Quoted from volcanodiver:

    Of course its worth less when used.

    Some are more worthless than others.

    #656 2 years ago
    Quoted from PinSinner:

    Star Wars has had it's own resurgence in recent years. It has reinvigorated old fans and brought in a new generation of new fans.


    #658 2 years ago

    I picture those are the guys begging for another Star Wars pinball machine.

    #661 2 years ago
    Quoted from flynnibus:

    There will not be this wave of buyers coming out of the woodwork expanding the pin market just because it's Star Wars.

    I doubt even this guy will want one.

    Quoted from Travish:

    That looks more like darth vaders grandfather not son.

    Maybe he digs Aerosmith.

    #666 2 years ago

    Just think , If they were to launch Star Wars and Aerosmith at the same time, they could have a mega old farts convention reunion of sorts.

    But you would have to send in an application, a video and a down payment on both to attend.

    #669 2 years ago
    Quoted from Eskaybee:

    Is it me or am I the only who thinks pulp fiction wouldn't be a good pin?

    it would be newer than everything else, for sure.

    #671 2 years ago

    You had me at Big Kahuna Burger!

    #686 2 years ago
    Quoted from Aurich:

    This notion that a Star Wars pin is a license to print money is just silly. Fans are not going to be lining up around the block to buy it, just not going to happen.

    And non fans will probably just laugh it off.
