Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

I predict a big flop. How many units will they have to sell to prevent a total loss.

What’s scary is if it’s a flop that means a price increase is coming on next game to cover the losses. Since every game gets a price bump anyway look for a double bump.

Quoted from Pinballmike217:

Sad I can't get a Beatles for location. I hope Stern will bring back another cool old classic playfield for us lowly operators to put on route

Why not?

I was quoted

Pretty much

Least all models have a coin door.

Be interesting to see how they earn on location.

Nice non coin door

Quoted from MapleSyrup:

The thing that really sucks here is the fact that Stern has made this a mandatory purchase.
I was hoping to pay in full for a pin that would never actually be manufactured, but Stern is forcing me to pay stupid money for an actual fun pinball machine. It’s just not fair.
Some of the long time collectors here can back me up. There was once was a time when you could simply pass on a pin that was not to your liking for a variety of reasons.
Now though, with mandatory purchasing in effect it’s impossible not to be upset... Nay, OUTRAGED by this machine. I don’t even WANT this pin, but I have to buy it. So, you can see why I’m so angry.
It’s just a question of which model they’re forcing me to buy. It has to be Platinum or Diamond, I guess. I’m not going to put the Peasant version in my arcade!

Don’t forget you have to buy two.

One as an investment.

Quoted from Whysnow:

If rumors are true that distributors get 10 packs (7 golds, 2 platinum, and 1 diamond) for 70k, then I would be down for a gamble if 9 others are...
I propose a purchase price of $7100 each person. The Distributor gets to make a grand and does nothing but instruct the drop shipment of games.
For that $7100 each person gets a number from 1-10. We do a random number generator and the first number picked gets the diamond, the next 2 get the platinum, and the rest get gold.
Worst case you pay $7100 plus your actual shipping (or free pickup if you live in chicagoland area) and get a gold. Get lucky and you get the diamond or platinum.
Any distributors want to make an easy grand?
I bet I can find 9 other gambling people to buy that 10 pack

No distributor would agree to 7100.
The fines they would have to pay Stern, if and when they are caught, are much higher than the 1k profit they would make.
7600 to 8000 at absolute minimum, actually not a bad idea for the distributor to do if they’re having issue selling the games.
