Quoted from Methos:

I see it all the time in the collector car world. All those poor TA's who have lost their original engine with some new shitty chevy sitting in them.

Everyone should see how great Robert Downey Jr. looks after switching to plant-based lmao. You're so close on everything except for potentially the most critical portion. Animal based foods are superior.

There are bond LEs available at MSRP or close to it right now. With the exception of Godzilla, recent LEs aren't selling for a ton over MSRP right now."

Most LEs selling for 3k-10k over original MSRP.

As I stated, Recent LE's, with the exception of Godzilla, are not. Bond, Rush, Mando, LZ, Turtles, AIQ are less than 3k over MSRP.

Those prices I think are more influenced by recent pinflation that occurred 2020-2022 and also stern now makes 1000 LE's. Prices track more with the economy and rising MSRPs, money that can be made in Flipping Pinball machines on LEs with the higher number produced and higher MSRPs is way less now.

The point I was really aiming at is that you have to get the game, store it, ship it, sell it on the market later etc... where you will almost always make more money simply investing that amount of money in something else without having to store, ship and sell a 300lb pinball machine.

Spot on. With current rates you can get a 18 month CD at 4.75%. Put the $14k to work there and basically make a guaranteed $1k without any hassle. Could you maybe squeeze out a little more on a Bond LE in 18 months…maybe but at a lot more risk and hassle.

Quoted from gcr3579:

Sorry I've been busy the last few days and haven't had time to read any more considerate and thoughtful replies to my post since I responded to the last batch. I appreciate all the comments and whether you meant to or not, it has helped me decide what to do. 1. Keep it in the box. 2. Hold it for 12 to 18 months. 3. Sell it to some rube with a lot of money. THANKS! Merry Christmas to all. Feel free to continue to blaze away, I'm done with this thread untill I post the money train that came in. Whoo, whooo!

This is already aging badly since they’re now selling for $12k

You’re a moron and people like you are horrible for this hobby. I hope you never post…ever again.

Anyone not a listed distributor or dealer selling NIB gets ignored by me. I'm sure they are all crying into their buckets of $100 bills. Now if only these listed people would get some games I want.
