Better get your Batman SuperLEs before the big price increase....
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.
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.
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...
Noone was complaining when Williams was installing translites on the number one game right now.
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.
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
