Comes out to $4855 per game...doesnt seem like much of a discount for the entire lot to me.

Plus how much is shipping for 18 NIB games????  :o

Wow, that's terribly overpriced.

5140.88 each now, isn't that more than you would pay individually?

Way more.  You could get a distributor down well below retail buying that many at once.

You could on the newer ones, but the older games really aren't too common to find as NIB so they get a ridiculous premium in some cases. Really, all I'd want NIB from Stern is Spider-Man, Shrek, and Lord of the Rings. HA! LOTR isn't even included!

Hard to find, maybe, but higher priced because of that, not really... not much market for slightly out of production NIB pinballs right now.

Stern has made some good games. Just like Data East people like to write off their entire collection because they don't have Bally or Williams listed as manufacturer. The truth is, Stern has some hidden gems. Just about every pinball community agrees that Lord of the Rings is a worthy top 15 pinball machine. Spider-Man and Shrek/Family Guy are both pretty highly regarded as well.

Sure, there are some duds, but Stern has some good games that would be worth owning.
