      How many people have seen/played/ordered the new Beatles pinball machine?  I had a chance to spend an hour on one yesterday and was largely impressed.  Like everything connected with the Beatles these days, it was very carefully and thoughtfully done -- and is wildly overpriced, especially for the special editions.  The entire thematic is 1964...and only 1964 will be produced.

        My friend and I were just talking about them - $10,000!!

          A $10,000 pinball machine?  Who is their target audience?

          "Shipping is restricted to the Contiguous United States."

          They don't even want Hawaiians to buy one.

            I think Beatles' fans.  ;-)

            Most dealers are selling the "gold" version for $7999.  It's a super fun game though obviously for a certain niche fan.

              A friend of a friend bought one. Don’t know how much he paid.

                Here's a Pinball song!
