Quoted from Nevus:
I'm having a similar feeling lately. I love the JJP DI and POTC, but prices have stopped me. I'm not sure what I would do with your exchange rates and shipping.
Yeah, it's a frustrating one. My first NIB was an AC/DC Premium from the original run - cost me around $7250. My last NIB was TNA which I bought direct from Spooky at a much more reasonable price - before that it was GB Prem at $9200. It's incredible how quickly prices have jumped since then.
I'm not too optimistic, but if deeproot do come through with fully featured games at a lower price point it could really shake the market up.
Edit: My Lebowski was $8500 + shipping. Say what you will about DP, but the BOM on that game is much higher than any Stern. Again, it's crazy.
