Quoted from Wmsfan:
I bought an Munsters LE NIB. CPU died after two games. My distributor took it to Stern for a replacement (he is close to STERN). Replacement board didn't work! Distributor took it back and replacement for that was tested on the spot in front of him to make sure it worked.
Long story short- It took 3 CPU's to have one reliable(?!) game....Yes I am a bit nervous, I have 3 Spike games.
If you are nervous now, just imagine if you decide to sell any of them in five years and The nervousness of a potential buyer.
Atleast here in Sweden the only sterns that seem to keep their value up on the second hand market, is pre-spike.
With met and twd at the top, which are two really Nice games btw.
