  1. Yes this game is a premium all the way. Gameplay wise it's great they have kept it's integrity between models but the theatre of blowing up buildings and bridges is enhanced with the mechs. I don't think you can lose with either model enjoyment wise. The premium will just heighten that enjoyment a fraction.
  2. Covid has played a part but this price thing has been going on for years now. I believe the housing market is more the contributor. In my day I'd pay more off my house and gain equity. Now people have a shit and their equity has risen $10k. Paper millionaires. So as their equity, through uncontrolled circumstances increase, they redraw and buy pins. If there's a correction I fear we all will bear the cost. Now granted that's my cynical view on the market but I think there's some truth in it.
  3. Fair enough. But when it comes to nib I prefer the warranty, Unboxing experience etc. So waiting is worth it to me.
  4. I wish companies would stop releasing stuff like this. I think it hurts the product more than showing it in a good light. Looks rubbish to me but it could be just the bad video and pix. They should release Quality video and pix from the beginning showing the game at it's best and let the public decide from there. I find it hard to change my first impressions.
  5. Thanks mate but unfortunately tanks are quite far away from the house 5m plus
  6. I'm glad my thinking is somewhat on the mark. Btw the main reason I don't use my tanks is that there's nothing in place to feed water from my roof to the tanks. The prick ex owner had the auto watering system feeding them. So town water was filling the tanks DOH. I got quoted over $1k to do the job right and that ain't gonna happen
  7. I haven't done a feasibility study on this but I reckon water tanks could be a waste of time. Now if you don't have town water then tanks are really your only choice. I purchased a house with 10k tanks and I don't use them. I figure what town water costs must be cheaper than buying pumps, electricity usage and the tanks. Again if using tanks makes you feel better about the environment, then that's a different matter. So my suggestion to you is don't bother if you're in the city etc. But I am interested if someone can prove their worth as I may use mine again.
  8. I don't think making 3 models is the problem. You can buy a pro or premium anytime within reason. Where the issue is, people are so impatient and can't wait. So they pay more for s/hand games that are available now. I could have purchased s/hamd jp premium for $12800 or buy a nib for $12250 and wait. Unfortunately for this silly hobby I'm the type of guy whose happy to wait. And before you say but you still contributed to the silly prices by purchasing at a silly price, I didn't. I sold a s/hand game for an absolute mental price that covered this purchase and then some. Otherwise I'd never buy a nib. And I'll definitely never buy a s/hand game in this market.
  9. Wow that's a bit rude. In that case I'll never be in for an le again.
  10. Sorry I'm lost. So what you're saying is that it's no longer $1k down to reserve an le, 50% down on leaving for oz and then balance prior to delivery to your door?
  11. Elaborate on that please as I've purchased le's before, $1k down and......
  12. Yes 50% deposit for all models when buying from AMD. Confirmed by me as a purchaser with them as recent as Jan this year
  13. Where are people getting $1500 for Wi-Fi from? I'm hearing $200usd. Are we thinking the price rise is purely due to the reader being added? At $1500 I'd think everyone would be out, I am.
  14. @ddstoys I recall Daniel had a set I think
