      Just FYI on prices, most recent price increases have been from Stern themselves not AMD. Prices have dropped in the past when exchange rates have improved but let's not forget that Stern were charging <US$4500 for a machine many moons ago when that last happened. The price of a new game was set in stone for years.

      Like most importers, AMD hedges funds which means any change lower will occur when they next hedge them. If they're hedging a year in advance roll the clock back a year, that is the exchange rate they're trading at. It provides price certainty which is why importers do it.

      Oh, one other thing. Back in the day, if you didn't pre-order the game AMD just didn't order them in. That's how it use to be. For a while there if you wanted a game you either got it air-freight or sea-freight individually. So the Aussie price was $7000 say, plus shipping. Air-freight being about $2200 at the time. Sea-freight was around $600 from memory.

      I hope the Maiden faithful get a game that kicks arse!

          Quoted from Ruthless People........

          [trying to sell a new stereo system to a teenage couple... before he realizes they're expecting a baby] Ken Kessler: Check it out, my man! This is the Dominator X-10. Thirty inches of thigh-slapping, blood-pumping, nuclear brain damage!
          Heavy Metal Kid: Bitchin'! Hey, what's it ****ing cost?
          Ken Kessler: That's the bitchin' part about it! It don't matter! If you can't afford it, ****ING FINANCE IT!
          [turns it on]
          Ken Kessler: So what if it's as big as a Subaru and costs as much? You'll never have to trade this in! This is gonna be with you for the rest of your life! And when you die, they can BURY you in it!

                              Damn just ordered Luci, cant afford 2

                              For example, the last major release was GOTG in October 17. Usd/aud was around 0.78 for most of October when AMD had to set the prices. AMD's price for GOTG LE IS $12300. Official Stern Usd price was $8999. Which was aud $11530 plus 10% GST and OS shipping. So should have been $13000+ for GOTG LE?

                              You can calculate the spot rate for aud today and say previous games are too expensive, but who knows what it's going to be when the next game is announced.


                              EDIT: admittedly, AMD's AC/DC Luci VE should have been a bit cheaper than it is, since Sterns was $200 cheaper, but I'm putting that down to "rarity/small run" and demand. But AMD are in business to make money, not to be a charity importer for Stern. If a game is hot, why not make a couple hundred more off it. Personally I think it's in everyone's interest they survive as they provide a service no other pinball distributors in Australia can match.


                              Sorry to derail with local pricing arguments again.

                              Agree on the price of Luci. Ordered one from AMD & got delivery & set up included and a little off the shaker motor, so theyre willing to give a little back, just not flexible on the actual pin price. Im assuming this is so they can maintain pricing at that level and not upset the sales of other pins still in stock or in thefuture. Again Im also assuming they dont hedge the cost so need to allow for small currency fluctuations between ordering & delivery

                                They do hedge. Whatever the current rate is is mostly irrelevant.
