So after being a pin head for years and years- I *finally* decided to pull the trigger on a NIB Deadpool Pro- my first NIB game. I know there are threads debating the cost of NIB Sterns, but for me- I still think a NIB game for ~6k is a bargain in today's world, all things considered. Here's the issue I have though:
I call up my local distributor May 3, 2021, and plunk down a 2k deposit, for stated delivery of the game in September. I want to say the total price of the game was perhaps 5700 or somewhere around there. September rolls around, and I get an email stating that, due to COVID, supply issues, etc., the game is delayed, and was going up in price (I think 75 bucks), and was I still in? I said yes, I'll keep waiting.
Just today, I get an email; The price is going up again, 250 bucks, and delivery should be from the July production run.. Wow....
So- I'm thinking about cancelling my order, but not yet 100% convinced. It is still a great title, in demand, etc. I still think it's worth the price increase. BUT- I know for sure, Mando, Godzilla, and possibly others have been conceived AND delivered since I ordered. Is it really supply issues? Or just capitalizing on other titles while the iron is hot? I don't fully understand how the distributer relationship works- if they've actually ordered from Stern, or if they're just waiting until the stock comes around, but this doesn't seem sound to me...
Can anyone explain this to me? Is this legit? Or is the company I'm dealing with (not naming them, but distro for Maryland) jerking me around? Over 1 year wait for a 6k purchase seems a bit over the top to me..
