Its amazing to me what Stern is charging for games. Operators won't touch them, collectors only want the LE stuff. It drives me nuts that they are 7k average. Please just build one machine and not a ton of different versions of one game. Find a middle ground on price and move on. I personally think that the hobby has gotten out of control, prices are crazy and people are greedy. Now, I would be a hypocrite if I didn't say that I have taken advantage of the current market and made money with pins, at the same time I am a collector at heart and use any profit to fund my own collection. The price bubble has to burst at some point, that my two cents. I mean come on, a MM is the price of a vehicle now days, how does that make any sense? These are just toys we have, its just crazy the amount of money we spend on them.
