What is the point of your post if you do not say why?

#52 5 months ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

I love the cannon. But I know a lot of people dont lol. I just cannot, no matter what, put up a decent score. And I play it EVERY NIGHT!
My best is like 126m. Happened ONCE. Oh well. I need to get some old Bon tracks in there. I think that'll help.

Please buddy, need a review of this one
It looks awesome. I need to know more about shots, rules, this mini playfield, lcd animation...and sound package (I already know that AC songs are the part I really don’t like but in the game maybe I could pass over them)

I guess that this thread has been forgotten about, now that people have pins at home...

#54 3 months ago

I’d still be interested in hearing opinions from those that have bought one, as I’m contemplating it. This is the club thread after all...right?

Threw a few games up on one at the York show, and was very impressed. Very attractive game, but was definitely throwing some bricks. For those that have one, does it have staying power?

#55 3 months ago

Not sure many have shipped yet. It seems they are focusing on finishing TNA.

Looking forward to the production cranking up.

#56 3 months ago

Thank you both for chiming in, wasn't sure if anyone was still here. I did expect that it would be the most relevant thread based on the name. I will give it time.

It looked like nightmutilator sounded promising but so far, nothing but a couple of still pics. I do find that odd. Hopefully he'll have something soon.

I am growing concerned about the weather and eventual delivery, particularly with having selected the butter cab. We are starting to receive our snow now and realized that delivery is to a local shipping dock. I'll have to secure an enclosed trailer or cube van to bring him home. We're doing that this upcoming week for POTC so I will see how that goes but would have certainly preferred to move these around in warm weather. Here's to hoping that there are no issues in the long haul transit.

#57 3 months ago

I also do not believe many have shipped to home use buyers. Spooky is supposed to pause TNA production @ 550 then concentrate on ACNC. Purely guesstimate based on TNA club postings but maybe Jan-Feb we will see them coming out in much greater numbers.

One home buyer was kind enough to post some video in the other thread - which has good info but is huge and gets sidetracked a lot.

#58 3 months ago

BOHICA thanks for adding that here. Maybe nightmutilator will get some video in here as promised

in case anyone wants in RIGHT NOW!

Still no owners ringing in with updates, thoughts, tweaks, issues and fixes?

#61 77 days ago

Members in the TNA production thread posting #s in the low 450s shipping and Spooky Charlie posted an update in the "other ACNC thread" saying they were on track to finish the current TNA run in 8 weeks + they still plan on delivering all ACNC within their original 18 month plan. Looks like a bit of a bummer for the low # buyers while those of us further down the line won't notice much in the way of difference in wait. Let's hope for February to see ACNC coming out at a faster pace and maybe a pickup in activity here.

@ damonator provided a good pic of the standard silver vein trip with lighted speakers if anyone is interested to see a comparison. Tough choice IMO, but looks good either way.

Thanks for posting the vids. IMO the audio, LCD animations and lightshow are awesome on this pin. Eerie and love it. I can definitely see from the vids how there are long ball times, I had a few at York. Fairly simple to keep the ball in play on this game. Much better and brighter than RZ.

Anyone know where I can find some rule cards that I can print for the game?
Thanks

Email Spooky and they’ll send you a set if you already have your game.

dont worry. the silence will be broken this weekend. i read jack danger is expecting to stream ACNC this sunday, jan 12. i also heard someone may provide ACNC video from INDISC as well this weekend.

Just looking forward to getting the pin. Seeing Munsters has me excited and I don't want it to overshadow our ACNC

Hopefully we'll hear where Spooky is at sooner than later.

#70 37 days ago

From fresh post on Spooky's FB page - they seem to be multiplying:

"Alice Cooper's Nightmare Castle is officially taking over the line in a big way... for anyone still on the fence for Total Nuclear Annihilation, there are about 6 remaining for sale until... ??? When and if demand is there for another run basically. Those TnA games are available for delivery in 1 week! No waiting, no fuss, no muss. Thanks everyone who made TnA the biggest hit in Spooky Pinball history! Thanks also to the patient people waiting for Alice, who have made it the 2nd biggest hit!!! "

Thanks for the update. Any buttered cabs in view?

Guess that's a no.

what's a buttered cab?

#74 32 days ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

what's a buttered cab?

art is directly printed to the cabinet and then glossed over, instead of decals being applied to the cabinet.

Direct printed "Butter Cabinet" is a $999 upgrade.

Ouch, sounds expensive when you put it that way

Longing for an update...

Stalled thread. Maybe a current owner can post a picture or two of their pin.

#77 14 days ago

https://pinside.com/pinball/machine/spooky-pinball-allice-cooper-nightmare-castle

Aside from pictures, very little useful information in there.

#78 14 days ago

It has bugged me for so long that the link spells Alice with 2 i's: Allice

#79 14 days ago

Woot, got the call today for payment!

#80 14 days ago

What number is your machine? Trying to figure how much longer I have to wait.

#81 14 days ago

Glad to hear someone on pinside got the call.

#82 14 days ago

I'm #87 and thinking I'll get mine by the end of March. Fingers crossed.

#83 14 days ago

#62, through PinballStar.

Wow that's surprisingly great news. Standard or butter cab?

#85 14 days ago

Standard. When they recommend butter cabs be picked up in person, and I live in California.. standard it is. Besides which, I don't have enough space to showcase cabinet art, other than WNBJM. Everything's packed in pretty tight now.

That's cool, just wondering since they do the butter cabs in batches so their production date isn't always relative to the standard builds.

So it should be shipping in two weeks then?

#87 14 days ago

I'm hearing to expect it in "about a month". Which, would make sense for 2 weeks to ship, and 2 weeks transportation.

#88 13 days ago

#54 and standard here. No notifications for me, yet. Looks like numbers won't be able to be useful to follow for a while. I am also hoping for this month or next.

#89 13 days ago
Quoted from lancestorm:

Hadn't noticed that. Maybe that is why that pin is only valued around $900

#90 13 days ago

That’s more likely due to people selling their deposits.

#91 13 days ago

Ah, now that makes sense! Thanks

#92 13 days ago

Ha I thought you were joking on that $900 comment. Yes of course it is bc of deposit sales. The machines that have sold were 6500+. Maybe that is an improvement needed from robin . For sale to include option marking it as a spot in line/ deposit sale vs a real machine, that way average price on machine is correct, not lowered by deposit sales

#93 12 days ago

Yeah, I just thought it was odd that there is really nothing in there. I was actually looking to quickly see who the artist was again, without having to go through the thread(s).

Hopefully it will get cleaned up, quite disappointing to see.

#94 12 days ago

The artist is Zornow must be destroyed.

If anyone around central Illinois wants to come play mine, your welcome to. I rarely get to play the games since im always working on things, so its got maybe 100 plays or so on it. Come on over before someone offers me a trade that I cant refuse for it

Still no pinside owners who want to share anything new, even with the latest code?

What do you want to know? I didn't see any questions asked regarding the new code.
