I guess the saying $10K by Christmas is actually October this year.

The RE is still nowhere near as expensive as Stern's Signature Edition (Elvira) or JJP's Willy Wonka Collector's edition or even WoZ when those were in production.. There's obviously a market...

They are doing a run of 500 total (same as what was said months ago). Running the CE and SE first. Sounds like not many RE will be made and they have said they will NOT remake the Royal Edition later on, so there is some exclusivity for those who care. I do not. I have always wanted MM. Now I will get the nicest edition I can and will keep it forever so exclusivity and retention of value is not a concern for that particular machine (for me).

Cheers,

I think CGC got cornered with the pricing of the game (was at $8k before so that was the starting point). Their other remakes are Base price+~$1000 for the special edition, and base price + ~$2000 for the LE. Then they had to price the upgrades (for the current owners).. It had to come up to the same total as buying it pre-built in the form of the Royal Edition (so the previous LE owners can make their machine look like a Royal Edition for the same total amount of money). I also think they are trying to discourage people from buying the topper in order to make it more exclusive. $600USD for a molded piece of plastic is crazy I agree..

They also want to only make 500 of them so pricing is a way to control demand. I'm sure they want to move on to their 4th remake sooner than later.

Cheers,

Ryan from CGC posted this info on Pinside since there was a lot of assumptions, speculation, and flase statements floating around..
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

I wanted to jump in for some clarity on the upcoming Medieval Madness Production.

As we started thinking about Medieval Madness and the upcoming production run, we wanted to bring the look up to date with our other games (AFM and MB).
We know the community wanted the XL display for Medieval Madness, and many have expressed interest in a CGC topper for the game. They wanted it to look the same as AFM and MB when it was sitting in next to them.

We came up with the idea of update kits that are available for all current Medieval Madness owners, and worked hard on making that a reality. All existing Medieval Madness owners will be able to purchase the updates through their CGC dealer as well as Planetary Pinball Supply, and install the kits for themselves or with the assistance of their dealer.

We also knew a certain number of people would want to have the kits preinstalled by CGC at the factory. So we designed and launched the Special Edition and the Royal Edition. These 2 models are both priced as a Classic Medieval Madness with the cost of the update kits added.

The Royal Edition we then decided to add the Black Diamond powdercoating to all the trim on the game to give it a very refined look. We liked the look of the Black Diamond powdercoating on the armor so much that we decided to add it to the speaker panel, coin door, lower arch/apron, and hinges. The Royal Edition was designed to showcase all the kits available for Medieval Madness.

We will be building 500 total Medieval Madness machines during this time. A limited amount of these will be manufactured as the Royal Edition with all the features installed at the factory. We will not be manufacturing the Royal Edition again. We are treating it like all of our Limited Edition games and only manufacturing them the one time.

We want all of our customers to be able to have the best of what we can build, and we did that by offering the upgrade kits for all existing CGC Medieval Madness games, and wanted to offer new customers the ability to experience what we are doing at CGC.

I encourage everybody who owns a CGC Medieval Madness to look into the update kits. It is a cost effective way to update your Limited Edition and Standard Edition Medieval Madness to look like the other CGC games we manufacturer.
