I am not bashing the company or game, Just seem's like the price keep dropping and plenty of distributors with LE or CE'S for sale. I personally had alot of interest in the game before the reveal, mostly the pricing turned me off. Do we think JJP will ever lower the msrp on these game's to clear them out?

The distributors can lower it to sell them. They just can't advertise lower than a certain number provided by JJP.

At least 9500, however gnr is hovering around 8500 so who knows.

Wow...I never knew this. I always thought they were contracted to sell for at least MSRP.

#5 7 days ago

I just learned this too. There is MSRP and then a min advertised price. This is why since the recent Stern price increase you see some machines at $9699 (MSRP) and some $9499 (min advertised).

#6 7 days ago

Price on TS4 will continues to drop, since there are virtually few buyers in the market place wanting in reality, a carnival themed toy-less machine. Should be able to pick one up between $7500 and $8500 as time goes by. The fact that JJP has on the line now machine #8, so soon after selling TS4 for such a short time, is proof sales are bad with prices tanking.

#7 7 days ago

I wonder if they stuck with the old pricing if they would have sold out of both variants. I probably would have picked up a CE at 12500.

Shameless plug here but I have a nib Bond available for 9g.

DI I think is still under GNR, so there's a good track record.

GNR is 1k down and DI is around 1500 down?

I know you said you don’t want to bash JJP or Toy Story 4 but that’s exactly what this thread is going to turn into lol.

Not even dealing with all of the usual Toy Story 4 haters this time and just draining the thread. They are coming, waste of time. Get ready for at least one of them to say the game is garbage and is worth half the price lol.

Also, Toy Story 4 is awesome Most played game at my last two pinball parties. CE is amazing. With that being said I traded a heavily modded Ghostbusters premium (no topper) for a NIB CE, I value both right around $13k so seemed fair.

You claim not to be bashing the company or game and yet create a thread like this? Wow lol.
Not even dealing with all of the usual Toy Story 4 haters this time and just draining the thread. Worthless.

Take a deep breath panzer. Gooooozfrabbaaaa.

Guns n Roses LE from $11k new is now on average $2500 down ($1k down if bought at $9500 new). Used Dialed In LE’s are hovering around the same price, maybe more soon than GNR. Dialed In LE was $9k new so there’s that…

Why the big drop in GNR resale? Code, JJP needs to desperately add much more code to GNR and yet there hasn’t been a single public code update for the game in over a year. I own both and find Toy Story 4 to have the deeper, more enjoyable, and more objective based ruleset at the moment.

DI SE been 1500 down for a long time unless they are rising as off late?

#16 7 days ago

Saw a home use only GNR LE with mods for $7999, so it will be heading that direction

And yes- I own Toy Story, my kids really enjoy it

#17 7 days ago

GNR-LE NIB shipped to my door- $9500, any JJP for under $10k is a great buy. My Wonka LE is incredible in a dark room, fantastic pinball machine that is extremely challenging. Every one of my Sterns have issues NIB, Especially Rush, Node -10 Failure that nobody has an answer for!!! Sucks we didn’t get Toy Story 1

#18 7 days ago

You have MSRP - Suggested Price. MAP - Minimum Advertised Price. Then you have RWP - REAL WORLD PRICE. Which is shit when you try to place a video game in a pinball machine. I’ll never understand Lawlor’s recent fascination with LCD screens on the playfield. WE WANT PHYSICAL SHIT NOT VIRTUAL SHIT. Thank you very much

#19 7 days ago

One thing that may keep TS4 up is that it will be a relatively small run (especially compared to GNR).

I have also heard that it does well on location.

IMO - we are probably already near the bottom. I think it stays in the same price range as Wonka... and perhaps even a bit above (since it will be a smaller run and more recognizable theme).

#20 7 days ago

The price will go as low it takes to get them sold. Now the real question is how much of a hair cut on price 1k 2500,3k.etc or half price. Is it a theme issue? Just for younger people that have kids of there own where the price has cut out the buyers. Maybe in 10 years still may be new in box still sitting just waiting.

Well I think you’re in luck!

Here in Europe, toy story ce price is around €18.600,- / le €14.600,- (19% vat included). Both versions are in stock at the big retailers.

Haven’t seen big discounts on new pinball machines in the past, can’t imagine that this will happen with ts4. No idea how many came overseas, but not a lot are comming for sale on the secondairy market.

Would love to have one in my collection, hope for a ce for around €14.000,-. Who knows maybe that is possible afteral

So are you now interested picking one up at the lower prices on the secondary market?

Maybe...I played one and thought it was fun...I have owned all JJP game except Hobbit. I just didn't think the game was worth the asking price after seeing and playing it.

The dollar has gotten so weak with all the stimulus money bs. Parts and labor went up. 4 pinball manufacturers in the Illinois. Good assembly line workers are making a good wage now I bet.

I second that brother. I love my Toy Story 4 CE and not ashamed to admit it!

Obviously it has toys but for $12K-15K people were expecting more or something unique.

You are like the Beetleguise of Toy Story 4. Do you have an alert set to notify you immediately when there is a Toy Story 4 mention on Pinside?
