Do people really buy LEs because there's a supposedly limited number of them?

Interested to know why LE buyers choose them over Premiums?

LE’s did offer more..
Powder coated & different shape hardware,
Speaker upgrade
Foil/ mirror decals*
Mirrored Backglass*
Designers Signature
Shaker Motor

The price between LE’s and Prems sure to be around £1500 difference.

Now they are £4000+ difference.

You can get pretty much all the extras separately for way less.. coupled with the LE variations that are now coming out, the lure of the LIMITED EDITION and FOMO is becoming less attractive…. Well at least to me.

Just my opinion of course

*mirrored backglass and foil decals- are inconsistent - I guess depending on licence cost and BOM. Starwars LE had the 3 translites- would have expected mirrored.

BM66 SLE foil decals, then GZLE, then EHOH 40th for example.. All LE should have them
Ah but only a very limited number available. Well I don’t consider 500 a very limited number! A lot of limited editions were 500 so how does it now become “Very” limited number.
Stern just take the P**s!
Nice that they’ve added a little code update for all owners with this like JP 30th. Looking forward to seeing the new modes

Has anyone else installed the latest update? Any issues?

I’m finding it a bit weird after the update. The cellar ramp is randomly opening and closing when it feels like it. I got node bus errors in 1, 8 and 9 but those say they are upper and lower playfield - could be bad naming of them but I’m thinking there is no upper/lower playfield unless they are just describing the top and bottom of the playfield.

Is it possible to rollback to earlier firmware versions? Assume just grab earlier version and chuck it into a usb and do update? Will that work or will it complain as I’m downgrading?

Anyone any thoughts?
