One thing though about CGC toppers. They are amazing. But, they really shouldn't be just for the LE purchasers. A topper should be available to buy for whoever wants to buy it.
I'd say the same about Sterns if they made toppers only for LE's. Sure I think it should be included in the LE price point. But, shouldn't be exclusive.
Now, I know pinball is split about who likes toppers and who doesn't, so you probably can get whatever topper you want if you're willing to pay. But, you should be able to get one from the company and not do the fake scarcity crap that they do.
These are toys. They are not collectors items. Do they hold value, yes they do. But, I don't buy my pins to hold value. I buy them to play. And when I want to sell them, I'll happily take what I can from them as a bonus. Because, the true worth for me, is in playing them...
And the true worth in a topper is looking at it when the machine is off and being all, "man its pretty!!!!!"
