As an operator and collector for me it depends on value that premium provides over pro and/or how long I intend to keep.
Must have premium / LE
- Kiss - GI and love gun magnet are nice, but don’t add a ton to game play
- TWD - crossbow doesn’t add much to game play, raising ramps for bicycle girl less smooth than pro
- Iron Maiden - I don’t think extra features add enough to be worth it
- Aerosmith - upper Playfield kinda meh
Other games like Munsters, Ac/Dc, GOt, black Knight, seems empty without additional Playfield but have not spent enough time on both models to make a judgement.
For the arcade we buy About 50% premium and at home I steer more toward premium, but if I find good value on pro or won’t have long, I’m ok with a pro too.
