    As only Tommy Boy would present it, "Red Ruby", "Luci" "STLE" all for more $$$..........

    Tommy: Let's think about this for a sec, Ted. Why would somebody put a guarantee on a box? Hmmm, very interesting.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: Go on, I'm listening.
    Tommy: Here's the way I see it, Ted. Guy puts a fancy guarantee on a box 'cause he wants you to feel all warm and toasty inside.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: Yeah, makes a man feel good.
    Tommy: 'Course it does. Why shouldn't it? Ya figure you put that little box under your pillow at night, the Guarantee Fairy might come by and leave a quarter, am I right, Ted?
    [chuckles until he sees that Ted is not laughing]
    Ted Nelson, Customer: [impatiently] What's your point?
    Tommy: The point is, how do you know the fairy isn't a crazy glue sniffer? "Building model airplanes" says the little fairy; well, we're not buying it. He sneaks into your house once, that's all it takes. The next thing you know, there's money missing off the dresser, and your daughter's knocked up. I seen it a hundred times.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: But why do they put a guarantee on the box?
    Tommy: Because they know all they sold ya was a guaranteed piece of shit. That's all it is, isn't it? Hey, if you want me to take a dump in a box and mark it guaranteed, I will. I got spare time. But for now, for your customer's sake, for your daughter's sake, ya might wanna think about buying a quality product from me.
    Ted Nelson, Customer: [pause] Okay, I'll buy from you

    Are you saying LE = Warranty (guarantee)?

    #3 6 years ago

    Luci is not an LE machine Ice =) its a regular pump em out Premium game. Small run being made this year is whats making it limited but more coming in February

    #4 6 years ago

    I don't get the analogy.

    a) Luci isn't an LE
    b) the only guarantee I've seen made with LE's is the quantity

    I'm making a joke JJ! Nothing about the pins themselves, just $$$ increase on all of them. But I would think Luci might end up being an LE in the sense that it will sell a whole lot less than the regular premium and maybe 500? You would know that, as much as I would love this one, I could never have with my kids, I like my regular premium I got from you fine!

    Can anybody go from A to C? Ok, F it, its not a literal interpretation or analogy, use some imagination

    Maybe create a laugh on a friday afternoon? Guess not......

    I wish that was partially true. What`s the point of getting an LE when you have the PRO, Premium, LE and now LUCI makes me think of Windows Vista Home, Business, Student, Ultimate, 32Bit, 64Bit

    Eventually if you get so many versions the LE status starts to fade with the rest.

    If they end up making only 400 of these new ones...which one is really limited edition???

    #15 6 years ago

    This is Jack after announcing the Red Ruby edition talking to Helen......

    Tommy: Hey, what's your name?
    Helen: Helen.
    Tommy: That's nice, you look like a Helen. Helen, we're both in sales. Let me tell you why I suck as a sales man. Let's say I go into a guy's office, let's say he's even remotely interested in buying something. Well then I get all excited. I'm like Jojo the idiot circus boy with a pretty new pet.
    [Reaches down and picks up a dinner roll]
    Tommy: Now the pet is my possible sale. Hello there pretty little pet, I love you. And then I stoke it, and I pet it, and I massage it. Hehe I love it, I love my little naughty pet.
    [Pokes the roll playfully]
    Tommy: You're naughty! And then I take my naughty pet and I go...
    [makes ripping noises as he tears apart the roll]
    Tommy: [Wailing loudly, making the whole restaurant look] Uuuuuuh! I killed it! I killed my sale! And that's when I blow it. That's when people like us have gotta forge ahead, Helen. Am I right?
    Helen: God, you're sick

    Unless another "Ruby" LE is announced before the current LE's are shipped. That's when yer daughter better get an EPT

    Hey, I'll tell you what. You can get a good look at a butcher's ass by sticking your head up there. But, wouldn't you rather to take his word for it? No, I mean is, you can get a good look at a T-bone by sticking your head up a butcher's ass... No, wait. It's gotta be your bull.

    Limited stands for code. Not for the amount of pins made.

    #23 6 years ago

    I'm befuddled here;

    A couple of folks said that Luci is not "Wife approved" or that you couldn't have it because you have kids.

    Why? It has a cartoon-style picture of a devil-girl wearing a bikini-ish thing. What's the issue there? If your wife takes umbrage with that... It's hardly hard-core porn folks, unless there's some other feature/art that I missed.

    That said, I dig it and this will be the final push for me to pick up a ACDC premium.

    I think it must have been his over-the-top delivery of this schtick because in print it sure isn't very convincing

    What about Girlfriend Experience?

    #28 6 years ago

    There seems to be a misconception that the term "limited edition" means smallest quantity. All it means is it runs out eventually once X amount are gone, or X amount of time elapses.

    Doesn't mean it's the rarest, the best, the prettiest... Look at all the "limited" or "collectors edition" Blurays, comics, toys, games etc... Have popped up in the last 20 years. There's thousands of them available and they exist only to part you and your money, not make you money or value in the long run. It's always some obscure collectible that wasn't popular or pushed as collectible that really skyrockets in value.

    All pinball machines are relatively limited editions...
    as they aren't really highly produced when compared to what people typically buy for amusement,
    once they have run their course (demand dries up/license runs out) on the production line they are rarely re-run.
