Hey, sorry if this isn't the place (by all means redirect me) but was wondering if you folks could help me navigate a machine I hope to be buying. From what I can tell it appears to be the standard edition, but the seller is asking $7500 for it. No mention of any mods or other additions, about 3500 plays on it. For what it's worth I can see Champion Pub in the reflection of the glass, so I imagine if the seller has multiple machines they know how to take care of them.
Is this price normal? I know the LE can go for $7k+, but from what I can see from archived ads here on pinside a plain standard edition is more common to go for $5k-$6k. And of course, "price is firm". I just don't want to insult the guy over the price as I'm pretty new to the hobby and really know absolutely nothing about owning a machine.
Any and all help is massively appreciated. GF is a HUGE LOTR fan, as am I, and we found this game in the wild one time and spent the whole night playing it. Haven't been able to find it again since, and thus has become a bit of a white whale for the two of us. I just don't want to be blinded by the opportunity to own this great game and massively overpay or overlook any big issues.
