Costs more then I paid for my NIB Spiderman.
Quoted from wlf_:
Stern doesn't sell used pinballs, they sell NIB. This release isn't geared toward someone into pinball enough to hunt down a used machine.
It's geared toward a much much more casual market, who is at one of those pool table/outdoor furniture/game room places... those folks were never gonna seek out a used pin, which may have service issues, wear and tear, etc. They are too casual to plop down 7k for a NIB, but they may buy a more simple, slightly cheaper, less chance of breakdown NIB pin... thus, this release.
The market for used games isnt a factor here for Stern, or any of the buyers of this game.
I wish Vid was here to say it was geared towards single mothers.
