Quoted from fattdirk:
Because when they come up for sale they have a ton of plays, have a bunch of dolls glued to them and are priced at 7k. I rather pay 5700 for a NIB without the dolls and with a warranty or pay 5k for the used one with the dolls because the pricing gets adjusted. They're going for 7k for a reason and it's because the demand is higher than the supply.
From your tone it seems like you're against Stern doing this, I'm curious why?
I’m not against Stern doing anything. I just don’t see the immediacy, especially since Pristine HUO copies can be had. They’re out there, and there’s lots of nice ones.
This is just me: I prefer the older versions. I’d be tracking that down anyway. Cabinet build quality is better. I like the old wood heads... and there’s the general cheapening of various parts (or removal of parts) on newer games.
I do think $5.7k is a pipe dream. I think you’re looking a premium price w/ship and tax.
But, ultimately, what’s in this for stern? Because Stern is the one that would execute... not the collector that wants to open a game from a box. Beyond a sliver of Pinsiders... is there really a big enough demand for Tron in the real world? I don’t know the answer to that... but it sure seems like they’ve run the game a lot already.
