  11. I'd lost out on almost every machine sale i've ever done except for 2. This was my par for the course and was what I expected to a degree when I came into the hobby. For various reasons I'm seriously considering downsizing the majority of my machines and only keeping a select couple. I get sent pics of what people are "asking" for on facebook etc and I just cant believe what I'm seeing. Even if they're going to 75-80% of that asking price they're still so god damn high. Just don't know if I could look someone in the eye asking for that sort of pricing if I advertised them here. Even worse when then I just see it later sell for another few grand. I then think its money going to my family so I really should try and get what I can get. Still doesn't make me fell any better about the entire situation. I did do an experiment with one machine to see what sort of offers I could get and they weren't nearly what everyone claimed it could go for.

  12. Yeah I reckon it depends quite a lot on the demographic. I came across just such a person who's kept in touch with me since wanting to buy my DP LE. He came into pinball in June, to which I had a laugh and pointed out he was yet another one of the Lockdown come lately pinball buyers. He definitely is one who's in the new found hobby category and definitely sounds like he's not worried to spend up to very quickly build a collection up and as he demonstrated in talking to me, pay overs. I said to him, mate it totally freaks me out when I contemplate what it would cost to repurchase just half of what I've got right now😱. I think there's a sub category of people though who were lockdown bored and maybe had holiday money sat aside, or decided to blow some stimulus money, who may start to find they can no longer justify the one machine they paid a stack for in Covid. That scenario would have to account for a fair few purchases over this time surely. The scenario of people of who have the spare funds to drop big $$ to buy up a bunch of titles surely can't represent that much of the population here in Aus. Over in the US with their population, for sure, just need a percentage more people coming into pinball and suddenly things are going nuts.
