Quoted from Aurich:

I'm rooting for DP, I just think the audience for $10k pins is limited. We're talking twice what a Stern Pro goes for. Yes, there are big TBL fans, but if they're not pinball people I can't see them shelling out. Think about it, would you buy a $10k themed TBL ... I dunno, jukebox? Slot car track? Some other collectible hobby that doesn't have the same emotional connection we have with pins.
We're in the bubble here, we love pinball, and we're kinda used to these crazy prices. I think once you leave the appeal is pretty limited.
IMHO if you want one you should get it soon. Maybe I'm wrong! But this strikes me as the kind of thing you buy while you can.

My love for The Big Lebowski grows every time I watch the movie or even just thinking about it brings a smile to my face. It really was a dream pinball theme to me and it looks like they nailed it, but I just couldn't bring myself to pre-order and even now, I'm just not sure about spending that kind of money (and waiting for it to arrive in Australia). I'm doing the unthinkable and looking at selling my Tron Pro to fund the next machine. These current games aren't cheap, so there's a limit on space and spending on these toys. Do I want to sink all that money into another keeper, or try the idea of rotating a machine every so often? After loving the fast gameplay of Tron, I'm just not sure about Lebowski and have no chance of playing one anytime soon. I await more games to arrive in the homes of forum members and can't wait for a fan's review of the game. I passed on the opportunity for Rob Zombie, but that's another story as well.

Quoted from MrBally:

Regarding DPB, which is the focus of this thread;
The girls they had prancing around Expo with the postcards with the COuNtdown clock were a nice touch. Then the Phil show which was the most professional piece of PR never. Then the private party on the top floor suite. All for 300 machines. Sure they're coming to TPF... to promote DPB #2. Take my money. Fat fcuking chance.

Let's hope it's not another beloved theme....

Quoted from Metalthrashinmad:

I haven't commented on this thread before. I am an early achiever, number 78. I do hope it gets delivered, I also hope that DP continue to make games.

Good luck, dude! This is a dream pin for me and would be nice to be able to own a Lebowski one day...or at least get to play one in Oz. Did any make it out here before the freeze?

Hope this whole mess gets sorted for everyone involved.

Quoted from Snoogans138:

He said no.
I guess I’ll keep on searching.

I'd like a Lebowski if they start making them again, but I'd only get one via an Australian distributor. Until then, hello Iron Maiden!

Fingers crossed for Xytech or Homepin manufacturing The Big Lebowski, Australian distributor and then boom, I'll buy one.
