    Walking dead LE Was released December 2014 and was $10,300
    So you would think The next LE should be around the high 10K -11k with price increases,
    Unless we All question the the $2,200 price increase which is blatant rip off it will continue
    It's all about the theme baby!

    In fairness to AMD the AUD is one of the most volatile major currencies in the world.

    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.

    The only way prices go down is when there isn't a lineup of foolish idiots putting money up front for a product they have never seen and there is no massive demand warranting such actions.
