Quoted from lllvjr:
Just curious why people think stern would do a premium? Why wouldn't they just do another pro model. They make more on a pro model and can jack up the pro model to the new pro model pricing.. They wouldn't have to do ramp lights, they wouldn't have to add drop targets... More money in their pockets...
Who exactly wants the pro model again? They already did what 4 runs of the pro model, right? Gotta figure Stern will make what people really want next time they do it (LE ingredients) and everyone is right, it wouldn't make sense to re-run the same basic pro for a 5th straight time would it?
If they are going to do it what might they change?
This time it will have to be much better, think about it, an all LED light show for this theme is a no brainer, perhaps even the next generation hardware to justify the higher value and you can most assuredly count on seeing the snazzy new active topper option being literally celebrated by them.
And if a new "active" Tron topper can be retrofitted to work with the old Tron pins from 2011 as well, that's a small fortune in topper sales Mr. Stern won't raise his nose at I'm sure.
Would you rather put a quarter in the old pro or something fancier? Stern aint dummies.
