I am curious what the current / recent Stern Pro prices as over here they just keep going up. The downside is we only have a distributor in Aus so no competition.

Currently for Aus $6950 ($6535 USD) you can get a stock standard in stock Pro:
- Metallica
- AC/DC
- Mustang
- Star Trek

And then Ironman VE was available yesterday for Aus $7100 ($6675 USD) as stated Stern had a $100USD price rise.

So Ironman VE for us is the most expensive Stern Pro to Date.

How is this for you guys in the US and Europe as well? Was IM VE more than the other pro's????

I do understand that often prices are on average $1500 more for us due to tax and freight but was more curious how this recent pro stacked up against other pro's currently available from your dealers.

edit - changed the title from dearest to most expensive.

Usually reruns on popular pins are a bit more then new themed pros like with TRON. I believe you can still get a ST Pro in states from a good distributor for around $4500 US delivered to your door or a little higher(within few hundred).

In the UK a Pro edition of Mustang / Star Trek runs at £4595 ($7798 USD)
No public pricing for Iron Man yet

Yep the new Iron Man is also 100 euro more expensive over here. Normally 4600 euro now 4700.

Most Aussies and New Zealanders are flying to America, buying a hearse and loading it up with cheap Sterns. I plan to return the favor by flying to Australia, renting a kangaroo, and loading its pouch with vegemite.

that's how us Kiwis role, buy a vechile that signals the death to your secondhand pinball market and send them down under to reborn and played. What a collection rd has!! Worth a trip to see.

Funny how different we talk. Only time I use dearest is in a letter!?! Actully, scratch that. I don't use that word at all now that I think about it.

So is the UK the highest globally?

#11 6 years ago

It's 7,100 Dollars in Denmark approx. But this is without VAT, which is 25% extra I believe... So all paid for it's about 8,875 Dollars in Denmark.

The VAT taxes in Europe always seem incredibly high to me. Is 25% normal for everything you purchase, or is a pinball machine different because it is imported?

Hold on to your shorts, They keep talking about a VAT here too. Anyway to raise taxes to pay for all the splurges by Washington.

When the original IM came out it there was no pro tag. It was IM with no le. So to call it a pro now isn't entirely correct.

Nope almost everything is 21% taxes. Only food, books and newspaper, medicine (not all), and maybe a few others are 6%.

#16 6 years ago

^ Yeah, I think in Denmark its 25%, and that is on most stuff. I don't really know too much about this though, as I am fairly young and new to these kind of things.

I thought Stern officially referred to the original IM as a "Pro" to differentiate it from the stripped-down "Classic".

You may be right

Most roos here are shot on site despite what is seen on TV or happily ran over by trucks. Also they are riddled with tape worms so I wouldn't be stacking it with vegemite either.

You guys already have all those confusing state taxes.

I seem to recall that when the Australian dollar was low a NIB Stern was about au$7500

VAT taxes change a bit between countries and there are several rates. For France:
20% except for restaurants and a few other goods (10%); some basic necessary items are taxed 5%.
