    Really? Just not grabbing me. Stern sales demographics seem a little confused.

    I don't see many people buying this as a fun game to play. Maybe Stern thinks collectors may want this because they will probably produce so few of them. Certainly would not be on a list of games I would like to own.

    I guess if they sell they may as well not bother having original ideas.

    I am waiting for the Canadian version of Pink Floyd with built in vaporizer and LSD tab dispenser. Feel the music.

    Most expensive pin ever???
    Time will be the judge of that. Still don't think it will be more valued than BBB.

    I am confused about this pin. I want to love it but not sure I do. Likely a blast to play but would not want to fork out the cash to ever own one.

    Honestly, I don't mind the idea of re-using an old playfield as a basis for a game, and trying to target something simpler isn't a terrible idea either. I wonder if the success of TNA helped with this at all? This game isn't for us though-it's for the Beatles collector who may or may not have a casual affinity for pinball. Anyone who's a serious pinhead will just go buy a Seawitch if they want a layout like that (or any of the other classic sterns), instead of spending probably $10k on a limited run "collectible".

    What's more of a shame is if this is all they're doing with the Beatles license. What might be kind of cool is if given the relationship, they could do a second, more modern game with the license. I know Yellow Submarine or Sgt Pepper have both come up as possible themes for a Beatles game-maybe it could be like those compilation albums they did way back in the day that were the early/late Beatles stuff?

    At least pull a idea/theme from the 80's. 60s-70s pins ideas are for the retiree crowd.

    I have played Seawitch and find it to be a very good game, fairly quick with many shots to make. I also really like the arrangement leading up to the flippers on Stargazer which is also a similar game. As Chris pointed out this Beatles game does have some similarities to Seawitch, but the way that video presents the game it looks very slow and boring. I agree that just the Beatles theme might resonate with the crowd that collect Beatles , but are they willing to spend that kind of money for a game. I guess they might spend $10000 if they think the value of this pinball machine will increase in value as an investment.

    Big Hair, hair metal.
    My wife would love a Poison pin.
    Hell, I would take a general hair metal theme if you could plug in your own music preferences.

    With Lemmy gone Motorhead is just a pipe dream....
