It was my first time calling a distributor, a few days before the announcement. I asked for either the LE or Premium. I got a reply that my name was added to some list. I may just be on the very, very bottom of it (if at all) but I have no expectations whatsoever. This is a brand new pinball for a theme we all love at home! Fun stuff!

Wondering if both LE and Premium could actually become sold out, that is even before more information becomes available? Say, if a trailer hits next week, could all games be spoken for by the week after?

Then my name on that very bottom of the list could become useful when some people will change their mind..!

The 750 isn't even the best part...You guys haven't even seen it flip yet! Lol

It's a cornerstone game meaning it will be in production for quite a long time. think JP. There isn't such a thing as selling out of the Prem as long as it's in production.

you're going to have to wait 2-3 months for a premium even if you are #1 on the list. If you want the game ASAP you need a pro or an LE (slightly longer wait). This game will be made for a long time unless it is a total flop.

If 750 is what it takes to clear out the scalpers and other greedy idiots then so be it!! I'd still be in.

Wonder how many toppers will be made, and what the new price point for those will be...

So you heard it here people. Buy now!! It's only 10k...we haven't seen it but it's awesome!!! send money now! Ahhh, Kaneda....Stern owes you money bro

Normally 500 is the "magic FOMO" number to get people to buy something they might not even want THAT bad....but in this case - with the crazy frothing market the way it is & the love for this theme, I think they could even get away with doing 1000 LEs. If the goal of LEs is to get 500 guaranteed sales, I think they'd still get that EASY, day 1, even if they did 1000...and I think the rest would easily sell within a month, maybe less. That's just this title & moment in time...I don't think they could get away with it on every LE in the future.

#966 6 months ago
Quoted from Saltimbanco:

I asked for either the LE or Premium.

If you really want an LE, don’t say you’ll take a Premium if you have to. If I was a distro, and I had too many on my LE list, I’d be punting you off first because I know you’ll buy Premium anyway.

I’m on the “list”, and if I don’t get an LE I’ll just wait and see for the premium and may never buy one. My distro knows this also.

If distro has just one LE and it’s just me and you on the list, I’m getting the LE, you’re getting the premium.

Well if Kaneda tells them to buy all 1000 I'm sure they will....lol. this is just fun to watch.

Fabricated FOMO

#968 6 months ago

LE has been secured - I have a good feeling about this.

If the little hints Jack Danger has dropped during his recent streams are in any way an indication, it will be a spectacular pin. Can't wait for the reveal!

Fabricated FOMO

Every pinball "LE" is fabricated FOMO...that's the point. Marketing = people spending extra money without playing the game...it's kept Stern in business. I'm fine with waiting to see how I feel about it & then just getting a Premium if it's awesome. Everyone wins.

#970 6 months ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

GNR is 5000 LE. There won’t get buyers for half of them..

Lol. They had half sold on day one. May want to check your facts.

#971 6 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

Lol. They had half sold on day one. May want to check your facts.

Also, JJP's "Limited" is different than Sterns. JJP is more like "Limited to...". If a JJP LE is 5000, they're just saying "at most we'll make 5000 & then we're done". They might not even get that high, but they're just letting you know what the maximum machines of the run will be....and of course we know that if they do sell through that number, they can go ahead and make a variant & sell whatever number of those they feel like.

So, if all 5000 GnRs sell through...would not shock me if they did a "1000 Slash LE Encore Editions" or some shit.

Agreed yet who cares? The only ones being short changed are those that can't get one or those forced to pay some shylock a premium flipper price. If a game is good I could care less if they make 10,000 of them. Power to the buyer and end this hype flipper investment group! Add to that in the grander scheme is 1000 in the World Really that many???

JJP CE = Stern LE

I don't think so. Stern just doesn't do an SLE model with every release as JJP now appears to be doing with every title.

JJP CE = Stern SLE

Jack would never say anything negative about Stern since he is their ambassador.

This thread is cracking me up. The same people advocating for Stern to keep the LE to a low 500-600 number (to maintain scarcity) are the same people saying there should be no ADM at the distributor level.

Distributors: us happy and content premium buyers would way rather see you distributors (who have an enormous amount of capital tied up and go to the shows and host nice parties and events for everyone) make the money off these games rather than the speculators/flippers...just saying.

THIS WELL Said!

#983 6 months ago

Great, the price increases are happening again. I just got off the phone with Betson and they Informed me the Limited Edition machines are going up to $12,500.00 while the pro's and premiums will remain about the same. I have every Limited Edition stern pinball machine and Topper for the past 7 or 8 years. I let him know if we are not seeing anything new other than the same old powder coating, HD glass, inside art blades,mirrored backglass and a signature I am officially done with Stern Pinball. There's no justification for that type of increase without a physical mechanism upgrade or more. I was told We will know more as of this coming Tuesday. I hope they do the right thing.

TigerLaw, Can we get this game added to the database? I'd like to add it to our collection on pinside.

Also, to anyone that read my prior post about price - there was a miscommunication between my wife and the distributor - MSRP appears to remain unchanged.

Cdonnerusmc, maybe they are jacking it up to make the profit rather than a flipper?

Quoted from chooch:

Hands down. It’s not that Jack’s opinion on things isn’t fantastic, it’s just that he is a contractor of Stern...and he does a truely fantastic job for them.

Quoted from P1nhead:

Gosh, I haven't added a game to the database in a couple years, not sure I could figure out how to do that, ForceFlow is who you need. I doubt he will do it prior to May 11th when he'd have photos of the machine.

No it's not! FOMO is not always fabricated...Most times it's organic, like impressionist's paintings in the 80's, collectable cars or watches. Yes, if it comes to LEs, this is the very definition of it....A premium will play exactly the same as the LE, now if the rule set was different or it had an outstanding feature or mech that was not available in the other trims, yeah that might be a collectable, but cost vs feature still comes into play.

I'm personally not a flipper, I keep everything I buy for many many years in my collection. That being said its a gamble on weather the game will go up in value or drop in value. Look at Munsters LE, transformers LE,Stranger Things LE, these machines dropped lower than retail right out of the gate. Also ,Most flippers are not jacking the price up close to 4k on a stern title unless they had it for years and it became collectible like Tron LE or a lord of the rings gold. Just my opinion.

Quoted from Yelobird:

JJP also doesn't make a Pro so.... LE = CE

A JJP standard would be equal to a Stern Premium considering what's in it and the price point. The main reason we see people say JJP CE = Stern LE is they may want to portray that JJP charges nearly $3k more over Stern for what they believe is a "similar" model which isn't true. If we play that game a JJP LE has more in it then any Stern SLE, Platinum, Double Diamond, and Couch edition model.

MSRP is $9,199. Dealers can choose to charge more for a limited product if the demand is extreme, which it is.

Demand is extreme. Noone has seen the game, no one knows who is coding, no one knows how it plays, the show is lame...this is really a matter of fomo as said many times here.
If the coder is really Lonnie, don’t sure to keep my spot, then playfield design should be a killer like art, sound and light packages too.

So that sold GnR CE you sold you had for how long and sold it for purchase price? Way to go.

The show being lame is your opinion, I think the viewer numbers can prove you wrong, though. and based on my sales this morning, yes, the demand is extreme. I can agree with you on several points, yes the game has not been seen, agreed no one knows who the coder is, but there are people who want the LE no matter what, so wait until Tuesday when prices are inevitably higher?
This machine will sell out in LE even if the PF isn't great, and it WILL resell for well over MSRP on the 2nd hand market, whether we all like it or not.

But if none of that matters to you, pricing on LE shouldn't matter either, just grab a premium for $7,699 or $7,799
