Hi All,
You know it is hard to gauge these things. I remember complaining about paying for TAF new in the box for $1995.00. A little more than 25 years later they are selling for so much more. It stinks that prices go up. They tend to on everything. My first gallon of gas was 27 cents. One of the saving graces about pinball is they tend to hold value.

But when you got gas back in the day you didn't have to add a cliffy fuel additive, shake 50 times, pump at 72 degrees, and worry about the gas eating the clear off your car........just saying.

We are the lucky country after all

#111 11 months ago

Must be that darn US/AUS exchange rate affecting the wholesale buy price again. LOL.

Strangely enough the domestic MSRP never seems to go down based on that rationale.

Stern Pinball Announces New Guardians of the Galaxy Pinball Machines

ELK GROVE VILLAGE, IL – October 31, 2017 – Stern Pinball, Inc., the world’s oldest and largest producer of arcade-quality pinball machines, proudly announced today the availability of a new line of pinball machines celebrating the popular movie franchise, Guardians of the Galaxy. Guardians of the Galaxy pinball machines will be available in Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models. The Guardians of the Galaxy are a fictional intergalactic superhero team based on the successful American comic book series published by Marvel Comics.

The game will immerse players in a dynamic, challenging, and galactic pinball environment where Star-Lord, Rocket, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, and Groot battle Ronan to stop him from using the Infinity Stone to destroy the galaxy.

Stern’s Guardians of the Galaxy Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models are packed with features that provide an irresistible gameplay experience. Each game features a sculpted and interactive ball-eating Groot. In addition, a custom sculpted Rocket figure will keep players on their toes as it blasts the ball back at rocket speed. Color-changing inserts highlight the mysterious and interactive Orb, which opens to reveal the powerful Infinity Stone. The Limited Edition and Premium models also feature extra magnets, custom artwork, RGB lighting, and sculpted Groot arms that sprawl across the playfield.

In addition to the immersive theme and exciting gameplay experience, Stern Pinball’s SPIKE-2 electronic platform enables high-definition graphics and innovative animations on the LCD screen. The state-of-the-art electronic system also powers a high-fidelity 3-channel audio system that is three times more powerful than audio systems of previous generations.

Taken from This week in pinball Jan 2018

Rumors of an AC/DC Luci Premium Vault Edition started swirling last Thursday after a website in Germany posted one for sale. On Friday, Stern confirmed this information on Facebook, stating:

“SHE’S BACK! Back by popular demand, Stern announced at the EAG show in London that a small production run of AC/DC Luci Premium Vault edition games will be available in mid-February.

Most of you remember the dynamic cabinet, translite and mini-playfield art package. Please see the attached photos.

Luci game play and rules remain the same that Steve Ritchie, Lyman Sheats and their team created for popular AC/DC Premium.

Luci has the 12 great AC/DC hits from our AC/DC games.

Luci’s price is the same as the standard AC/DC Premium Vault released last year.

As the market continues to grow. Vault titles are a great way to capture new end-users attention and sales.”

Supreme (New York Skateboard / Fashion company) added by Stern and apparently a very limited run of 12 units for Supreme. Not sure if Supreme are selling, auctioning but if anyone here's of a release price post back here. Is mostly a rethemed Spiderman home edition in possibly a pro cabinet.

The Premium and Limited Edition (500 made) versions contain some additional, fancy features which we don’t have pictures of yet… But here’s how Stern describes them:

Interactive sarcophagus ball lock.
Motorized secret tomb entrance.
Controlled middle pharaoh laser-cut metal ramp that raises to reveal the underworld scoop.
Dual sensing Newton ball (This is pinball firmly mounted on the playfield that, when hit, transfers energy to a captive ball behind it).
Two custom Eddie sculpts.

While the Limited Edition alone features the following:

Exclusive mirrored backglass.
Upgraded sound system featuring an improved speaker cabinet and high-quality JBL branded backbox speakers.

The MSRP for the Pro Model is $5,999, while the Premium Model will run you $7,599, and the Limited Edition Model a cool $8,999. Stern told IGN that they’ve already entered production for the Pro model of Iron Maiden with the LE to follow in April and the Premium after that, but you can order all three models now from dealers around the world.
