Default Licensed Transformers Pinball machine

A pinball machine company in America called Stern Pinball, are about to manufacture an official Transformers Pinball machine. No details on what it will look like, but there is a video clip promoting it (doesn't show anything about the machine itself).
Not sure if we'd see any of these making their way to Australia, and I think these days Pinball Machines are probably more for private purchases?

If only I had the money...

Images of the pinball machine has been released here (mirrored here), and if you live in America, you can have it shipped free to your address for "only" US$4,700.

The product description (Word file) suggests that there are four versions - Pro, Limited Edition, Autobot Designer Limited Edition (of 99), Decepticon Designer Limited Edition (of 99). The 3 limited edition versions are probably even more than the regular (Pro) version priced above.

I couldn't even guess what it would cost to ship one out to Australia (if anyone was keen and rich enough).

Some pics and videos of this TFs pinball machine can be found here.

I can see that they've incorporated 4 actual toys into it too.

Imagine the shipping costs... on top of the 5 grand price-tag. yikes!

I think it'd be fun, but not something I could afford at my current pay rate.

If I had the money and the space, I would totally get one of these, unfortunately, I have neither so it will have to stay as a grail of sorts.

For anyone expected to be in America later this month and want to check it out personally, the company is hosting launch parties in several states.
We'll probably see more pics & vids soon on the US fansites from fans who attend these.
