I wouldn't pay $100 for any topper, forget $1000.
I don't care what people spend their money on, and they are free to do what makes them happy - but I don't get it. Most of them are chincy garbage. $1000 is just stupid for what they are.
I had the topper on my TWD Prem because it came with the machine, and it was fairly cool as toppers go - but not as cool as the $500+ I got for it selling it off almost immediately a year or so ago. That was the first I started seeing stupid money for toppers, and I thought that was retarded. I laughed all the way to the bank, and Stern sure as hell is doing the same it appears.
Now tying the toppers to exclusive modes or similar is so infuriating I'm getting near boycott zone though... talk about gouging their customers. What a crock of shit.
