Quoted from Whysnow:
I am guessing they will run them in batches of 50, so that means 50 will sell to start... then another 50 after that... and so on, till they stop selling, then probably another 50...
my impression is that the first batch of 50 is already accounted for and possibly more? I noticed that the main 2 Spooky distributors will noting that people shoudl reach out asap to be put on the list if they wanted to get one sooner rather than later. My guess is they were inferring that the first 50 or 100 are already spoken for which I would believe.
I believe you may be right, I'm just saying Pinside may account for a good number as most AMH and RZ are accounted for on Pinside
-RZ (300) has 158 owners and 44 wishlist
-AMH (150) has 94 owners and 88 wishlist
This does not count people on Pinside who don't update their collection or never have a collection list. So there could well be another 20-60 owners of both that don't list.
My point is Pinside owners list is a tool, not an accurate measurement but a tool.
I recall when Stern made IMVE the owners list of IM went up 150-200 in the course of a few months.
Please note Pinside now has a separate listing for IMVE but initially they didn't so I switched my collection over to IMVE for accuracy but some people might not have. IM plus IMVE now account as 515 owners.
I'm just trying to look at Pinside numbers and see if they stay very low like WWE total owners 72
Again I'm sure the numbers will improve as the game is released, no need to get jazzed because it has low wishlist numbers. But owners and wishlist numbers are not meaningless because a high number like Woz or TZ Shows that a lot of them are owned by Pinsiders. Woz almost 1000 owners and almost 600 wishlist.
I am not predicting the sales numbers but if I was guessing I'd say more than RZ (300) and less than IM which sold (guess ~2000).
If TNA playes really well it could sell over time as word of mouth spreads. For example Tron and IM was made back in a time when Stern didn't keep making a lot of batches like they do with Metallica or AC/DC so they likely didn't sell as much as they could have if they were kept making them.
Only 700 owners listed for Tron both versions vs 1260 Metallica both versions. This has a lot to do with Metallica having a premium version but also because Metallica was in production longer.
