    Apologies if this has been covered before but are all Stern machines that have an LE actually limited to 500?
    I know they are serial numbered but what happens if Stern release a vault of an LE?
    It’d be the same machine but not numbered?
    I assume it would greatly affect the value of the original run.
    Thoughts?

    there have been more and less than 500 LE, depends on the title. They will not release a vault LE... as of yet anyway. The same machine that is not numbered is called a premium.

    In that light then the LE machines would hold their value better?
    I saw a noticeable drop in price of AC/DC premiums when the vault was released

    No mate lately they are 600 or more.

    Stern will not run an LE a second time. They may make more premiums or pros or like AC/DC male a Lucy edition. None of these have ever effected LE pricing. Example just this week a mate sold BIBLE for $14500aud.

    I believe Star Trek was 799.

    #9 3 months ago

    TWD LE was 600

    #11 3 months ago

    AC/DC LTBR LE 250

    #12 3 months ago

    X-Men:

    Wolverine 300
    Magneto 250

    Wish I had room for one. Magneto backglass is one of the all time greatest.

    Munsters WAS 500.... and then after taking some orders they bumped it up to 600.

    Tend to disagree on value retention. Yes an LE will resell for more but thats because it Cost much more. In rare cases like Batman 66LE yes they did better but from what I have seen loss percentage is typically better on the lower end Pro's. Honestly holding value should be the Last thing you consider in buying a pin. They All loose money but as long as you enjoy it or that model its a hobby not an investment.

    BM66LE- 240 Total, w 120 US, and 120 shipped to Europe.

    I don't look to make $$$ on these things, but do appreciate "Limited" meaning something to Stern ( as in they won't run it again).

    Nothing wrong with someone willing to pay a bit more for something that is collectible.

    Happens in all hobbies. And yes, LE machines tend to hold value simply because there are less available, and are generally the most desired model ( debatable by some).

    Just my take ( I'm about 50/50 in my lineup)

    It not so much an investment but knowing the machine won’t be re-released as a vault edition has some importance for me. I want to feel like I have the version that potentially the designer would have designed if they had no limitations if that makes sense.

    In the case of Metallica though there is no difference between the premium and LE apart from cabinet decals and powdercoat. That is possibly the case with other machines too

    Mirrored backglass is also different on MET, as with many LE's but not all.
