2016 Pinball Expo is Wed, Oct 12 - Sun, Oct 16, 2016

Plan to get there on Wed.
Currently says there's no schedule published yet.

Who's going ?
What events (official, unofficial, get-togethers, etc...) are happening ?
Where do you eat breakfast, lunch, dinner ?
Who's bringing which games ?
What new games do we think are going to be announced (and at which event) ?
...and do we seriously have to snail mail a check to get the Expo entrance pass for guests ?

#8 3 years ago
Quoted from j_m_:

well... I was going, but now that I know that you'll be there, I'm out!!
on a more serious note
brett, is there any chance that you can you bring me up a 6-pk of new republic's "dammit jim!" amber ale? (because beer is very, very serious [to me]
I will be more than willing to swap you for a 6-pk of some of michigan's finest from atwater brewery (their vanilla java porter is kickass!

where do i get it ?

mmmm vanilla java porter sounds good

#17 3 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Only reason it won't be is if something goes sour in the license approval process, Fox has to green light the final game still. Fingers crossed that doesn't hit any snags.
I kinda feel like either way, game there or game not there, that I need to seriously be unsober for all of Expo.

hey, cool. see you there amigo

#19 3 years ago
Quoted from dmbjunky:

I really want to spend some quality time at Expo this year. I'd like to take a game and I'd like to meet some new pin folks. I hope it will work out that I can spend multiple days.

do we have to print & mail our Expo attendance registration in with a check, or is there some online payment possible ?

Thanks LTG.
Asked in the other thread but ill ask here again.
If anyone has a spare bed in the Westin I'd love to split the room cost with you so I can be close to the action.

wish i could help. already split my room.

#86 3 years ago

Expo site has online pay working now.
Did my payment that way instead of the snail-mail method.

#89 3 years ago
Quoted from Arcade:

Wow. We have great wives.
Mine did the same thing for my birthday.
My son and I are staying at a Courtyard a couple of miles north.
I still can't believe I am going.

I think there's a lot of folks from Texas going this year.
Is this your 1st time to Expo ?

Yeah, that's just too bad that some dude in Brazil is unhappy and disagrees with all your posts. How will you ever go on???

This is fun to watch, I hope you keep them coming Labnip. If its interesting now, I can't imagine what we'll see once you deplete that recently replenished stockpile of beverages!
While your there, if you like greek food, greektown has great stuff, and on the way out heading south, Chicken in a bucket. Man I miss Chicago. The aquarium is also fantastic if you have time after and head down to Navy Pier.

cool. see if we can sneak out again for some greek food. i'm a total greek food nut

#453 3 years ago
Quoted from PinBallMagician:

Any mention of those Spider-Man Pins by the Batman 66 in the pictures above?

yep.
home model. stern is going to float these out into the market & see if there's enough demand. if so, they'll start making other "home model" pins at lower cost.

Who did they mention wouldn't make the Stern party tomorrow night? Couldn't hear in the back.

Quoted from kermit24:

I wouldn't say trying "the pin" again. It seems like a total reboot to me. On the FB video, Jared called it "Home Edition" and mentioned that the cabinet was full sized.

playfield is same size (with cheaper toys/targets), cabinet backbox is smaller, etc...
