Enjoy your pity upvotes that I manufactured for you haha. Also, I have MAYBE down voted you three times. 188 downvotes to 26 upvotes?!?! The community is telling you something. It ain’t just me.

Quoted from Tyler_Durden:

Hey Buddy, please go easy on trying to cancel people who you don't agree with, it's just a simple discussion and besides most of those down votes are from you.

Hard to tell from the pic, but if the "classic score reel" is just an animation on an lcd.... uh..... and I get what they were going for with the cabinet art, but that is literally zero effort.

It was found on the 007 official website. Seems legit.

#33206 2 days ago

I kinda chuckle people believe this excuse, like how can they know 2 weeks for approval, if they say no, back the drawing board and then there is always the show us game play with only the approved video and music.

But we eat up the excuse LOL

I think this is the real deal. It came up on google posted 13 hours ago but when you click on it you go to 007store.com to buy the pro or premium. Thats the site stern was promoting. I think it got mixed in accidentally, taken down, but still showing on google.

Keith implied tonight that the photo was a pre-production mockup and there would be score reels in the backbox on the real thing. Could be word games, though, like when he said he wasn't reskinning Quicksilver into a 60th Bond yesterday, then today it was revealed that was a very narrow word line because he is releasing a 60th bond SLE.

That is why I am thinking (or was thinking) that the 60th SLE might be Goldfinger theme. I guess I may be wrong. I remember reading there is an Oddjob spinning hat in it and that also leaned me more towards Goldfinger theme.

Yeah, you can just make out the oddjob hat on the playfield in the leaked picture Keith said is a mockup.

I don't think he meant the PHOTO was a mockup, I took it to mean it was a cobbled-together, in-progress not final machine to just take a promo picture. He pointed out the wonky action button and someone else pointed out the absence of the Insider Connected reader.

As loyal Stern costumer and an avid pinhead

I would like to say:

Now feeling Royally screwed by Stern, in a professional “licensed to screw over” kind of way.

Handful of flippers are truly ruining this hobby for the rest of us. Just because they list their flips at ridiculous prices, does not justify Stern now meeting those prices with their NIB MSRPs.

This is nuts.
As a Canadian now,
LE $20K
PREM $16K
Pro $11k

Ridiculous!

Stern. What. Are. You. Doing. !?

I watched that stream and as far as I noticed he never even said he didn’t work on Bond, I don’t know why people are saying he said that. What he said was, he doubted he would ever re-skin a classic game. Bond 60th probably isn’t a re-skin, it’s an original single level game and Keith didn’t lie.

This is ridiculous!

This is out of control!

I have heard this many times over the years and we never seem to play catch up. The last few years with this inflation has really thrown me through the loop. Shopping at the grocery store recently and I am seeing cereal nearing $7-$8 a box. To me this is a good indicator for the signs of rapid inflation. Double the price in just a few years? Cars, houses, food and now pinball?

This is Outrageous, Egregious, Preposterous

The "official" inflation numbers are under 10%, which is clearly way lower than actual inflation. With interest rates cranking up to an intentional economic slowdown to mitigate inflation, I don't see how these prices can hold up for long.

He was very specific by adding the language that he wasn't doing a quicksilver reskin, which he wasn't. He just let everyone believe for a day that it meant he wasn't doing any Bond.

But yeah, grain of salt, indeed. Joel on TPN called him a troll, based on his misdirection record.

What's with all of these expensive for sale ads ?

#33228 1 day ago

And to add to you Stern inflation, supply chain issues, one can now pay 500 bucks to get the same LE number. LOL I have bought up to 3 LE's at a time and request the same numbers, but nope not anymore in fact I just won't buy anymore LE's well maybe a BTTF , and will not be requesting my usual LE number this stuff is funny, now Stern boyz can you help me understand 500 bucks to get the same LE number? Inflation, supply chain issues? Hmmmm????

I am dumb but not stupid

If you are a repeat LE buyer and request the same number , they should treat you as a valued customer , and not try to rip you off by charging you $500 to get to same number .

The only LE number that should be slightly more expensive than a regular LE on this new game is 007/1000, unless Gomez kept that one for himself.

#33232 1 day ago

So what is the deal, is this Elwin Model just another addition to the 3 and then there is also going to be a SLE? Or is this considered the 4th SLE and there will only be a total of 4?

In the Gomez interview I think he said that if sales are good they might make a goldfinger version at a later date.

You're paying them for the hassle of digging that number plate out of the bin and making sure it goes on a certain game to a certain distributor. Luckily the number is completely meaningless, so even at $1 all sane people should be out.

I think it's interesting/telling that the LE plate says Thunderball LE instead of James Bond LE. So a Goldfinger LE later on would make sense.

seems like all the games are named after the movie, not James Bond (look at the plaque on the pro and premium)

It's funny how none of the James Bond games actually say James Bond. Even the Elwin Edition says 007 and not James Bond

I find it odd as well, makes you wonder if they will not have the famous Bond….James Bond line in the audio. Pretty lame if left out.

Can’t remember his exact words but George said on the IC podcast if Bond sells well, there’s potential for Goldfinger …something… in the future.

Well, it's accurate. None of Ian Fleming's works have "James Bond" in the title. I don't think *that* has anything to do with audio/callouts. We didn't get a Bilbo Baggins pin did we?

I think this is a fake sale. Brand new account, meanwhile others listed for cheaper are not listed as pending. What's to stop someone from faking sales, or at least mark as pending, at whatever price they want, then justify actually selling one near that price?
