This is pretty cool, for sure.

Does anyone find it a bit odd that only one game is being boxed and shipped?

SkeebWilcox... are you serving as a test location for the game?

Fingers crossed for everyone that has placed an order!

Saw this in Facebook today! Awesome! Looking forward to a play through and impressions!

No, not a test location! We are just fortunate to have #1 out the door and coming our way!

Andrew is a top guy to deal with. I rarely post but I had faith in the team the entire time. I just read an alien thread and it seemed there were many ups and downs for people following. I am happy to share this alien and others I have purchased with the community. I am sure the game will shoot incredibly and we will be doing a launch party February 24, all the games you can play on Alien, absolutely free. Should be a fun time and I will try to link up a live stream so everyone can enjoy some game play videos. We have some of the top players in the world coming to have their way with this game.

A lot of turbulence on that flight.

I saw that too. Wasn't sure if it's just a strange angle, but that front edge sure doesn't look straight anymore. Hopefully the contents are safe and sound.

So did Heighway pay for air freight on this?

Found it interesting that, last week,they showed photos of this particular game getting loaded on a truck with the comment that more would be shipping last week and this week. Then the game gets air freight (which can't be cheap)... and we've heard nothing else about any other games shipping.

Leaves me scratching my head

All Heighway games are air freight

air freight is surprisingly cheap and best option for Heighway games.

#2 is in transit and there are photos of it leaving the factory on Monday.

It's actually pretty reasonable! $350 to your door

the company (tnt) also handles the brokerage for you at a reasonable cost (like around $30). And if you're in Canada, will collect the sales tax. Pretty easy.

Just be ABSOLUTELY sure your contact info is correct. I bought a pin from overseas a couple months ago and my contact info wasn't correct, so TNT wasn't able to get in touch for paying customs duty. Took an extra 3 1/2 weeks to get it released. Going through and trying to get in touch with them directly is a nightmare

I hope you took the day off work JUST for this...gotta have your priorities straight.

Join the group Fun With Bonus to get the link going when it becomes active.

Not sure how to post video. We have the unboxing video and there will also be a stream tonight courtesy of Cryss Stephens, Top pinball player, should be an interesting evening.
