Andrew and Team, i had the honor of setting up full throttle at pin a go go yesterday. I was blown away by the construction of the cab, quality of the playfield, clear coat was excellent! The internals was also very impressive, operator friendly and the pin plays fast in furious. If this is how you guys are doing things it just makes Aliens worth the wait! Thank you again for producing an excellent product.

After all this waiting to see something, I used my money for a first NIB pin for a Game of Thrones that I should be playing next week.

good plan. when alien comes out you can just sell that and replace it. probably an easy sale and you can buy it back later.

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

And since that time Jack has never posted on pinside again.....

Yep, Jack did it to himself. A salesman that just can't get past only telling people what they want to hear.

I appreciate Woz, TH and what's coming in the future now with the new $$$ and management.

Jack's distortions certainly weren't limited to Pinside. He just got called out here. The Google group is more of a controlled environment

Oh absolutely. You can't trust anything he says. But still, he has released two fantastic games.

#5808 3 years ago

You seem to just want to stir the pot dude...few threads before, your promoting a podcast that clearly only bashes this project.

#5809 3 years ago

Really this thread should now be in a coma like state for the next 3 months, nothing left to discuss, Andrew gave us the timeline and thats cool, 3 months isn't bad. Alien isn't a theme where most of us r going to lose interest becasue of delay's, I just want to know when and what to expect, TH as a theme isn't even close and while I enjoy TBL it also is not in the same league thus the lack of interest, be back in few.

I hope you've played it enough. I think GOT is awful. Just me but hey, good luck with it.

My wife loves it and I had fun playing it, she wanted it badly and convinced me to buy our first NIB pin. So that's all kinds of awesome. And of course it's just pinball and not every game is for everyone, so I don't mind your opinion.

Was also trying to hold out to see what Alien looked like and see if it was a game for us, but would rather play than wait. In the meantime, I'll keep tabs on its progress and look forward to seeing them in the hands of Pinsiders to see videos and hear reviews. Maybe it will be in our house in the near-distant future, or at least be an option in the near future.

Never can go wrong with that strategy. And you have a game in house to play now. Pinball and patience go together, but its hard to exercise patience!

Have fun with your GOT. Gotta keep momma happy.

Andrew is still allowed to drop by and give us a quick update from time to time.

No stasis for me. Even the tiniest tidbits are of interest.

I believe Andrew had fiber for breakfast and a big bowl of raisin bran. Is that the kind of morsel you were hoping?

Has anyones boss received an email from Aurich lately?

I think that is how he is posting new info. He is researching how to get in contact with people's bosses and emailing them... Probably just for updates... Or you know, whatever.

#5822 3 years ago

On Kaneda's most recent podcast he said someone took a real cheap shot against him. From your comments, I'm guessing Aurich contacted Kaneda's boss. If that's true, who would do something like that? I quit tattling when I was 5.

Really?....really? I had hoped this thread could maintain relevance to topic, with only updates on the machine, and occasional humor....an idiot, I am....will be hard to ignore a thread about a machine I have such passion for, but will attempt to for a bit.....podcast poison is a part of life, I guess...

Quoted from HeighwayPinball:

if you find yourself in South Wales, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Florida or one of several other locations, then you can meet up with one of our team members who will be more than happy to show you the latest material.

How about SFGE in GA? Pretty please. I'm not above begging.

Yes, please Andrew. Would love to see a Heighway presence there.

#5828 3 years ago

That would be messed up, I cant believe Aurich would do something like that

#5829 3 years ago
Quoted from Roostking:

Well why would you? Because the "minion's" idol fed him that story? To (gasp) create drama? I don't have an axe to grind with either party but how would ANYONE know if this story is true? Because someone said so?

It just seems designed to create drama IMO.

Why the f#€@ do you even think this does add anything to this thread? Please leave this kind of nonsense out of official threads and take it to the basement. Or even better do not post it at all. Thank you!

#5831 3 years ago

Kaneda has proven himself a 100% reliable source. So thrilling to see the Pinside community is finally investing his words with the weight they deserve.

[EDIT: in case not abundantly clear, this comment is sarcasm, I don't know why anyone would believe that Aurich called his boss]

#5832 3 years ago

Well this thread really has taken a turn.With all this drama lately, what else can be said?

Bring Traci back?

A reliable source of starting shit...period...this is why he is gone from Pinside, this is why the majority of members cringe when his name shows up in a thread they enjoy contributing to or reading.
He's getting the attention he craves when he reads this kind of crap.
This post is so off topic, and harmful. ...take it somewhere else, buy yourself a Tee Shirt or something...otherwise stfu. ...

(Edit - it was not "abundantly clear" that your post was sarcasm, hence the response. ..his name does not have relevance or bring anything positive to this or any other thread)

#5835 3 years ago

Kaneda was kicked out of pinside for ruining umpteen threads, and he still continues to do it just from people bringing him up. What a toxin.

That chestburster has enough sense to not ruin her frontal region...they're getting smarter.

How about we lock this thread up...Andrew has walked away for months in terms of showing anything substantial. Nothing good will come about here as the trajectory is clearly crash and burn territory.

Let Heighway start a new one, clean slate in August where he gives truthful updates and realistic timelines.

Are you saying Traci Lords is not relevant to the Aliens pinball?

Easy, just drain it and don't come back anymore!

Easy what? You don't think all this porn crap is 10 times more disrespectful to Heighway than anything i've ever posted which collects rampant down votes?

Imagine a new customer, never hearing of pinside, Googles this alien pinball machine which they just found out about, and Google brings them here for the first time...

#5843 3 years ago
Quoted from AlexSMendes:

RandomGuy is right. It's Andrew's thread, lock the "Official Game Thread" and come back in August.

Nothing but garbage until then.

The rest of the numb nuts can start their own circle jerk thread with Kaneda and his podcast.

#5844 3 years ago
Quoted from AlexSMendes:

Easy, just drain it and don't come back anymore!

he's already given truthful updates and realistic timelines. wtf is wrong with some of you people and your need to throw the guy under the bus? go try and manufacture something from scratch thats dependent on other entities and your tunes with surely change.

#5845 3 years ago

The Alien theme itself will be worth the wait and Andrew and crew will be around for a long time to support this pin, FT and many others to come.

By contrast, nobody gives a crap about TBL and DP. And they have taken people's $$$ up front, 100%, years ago and if you are far enough down the list you still have years to wait before you even get your pin. Total BS!!!

With Heighway, there is a small deposit and nobody is holding a gun to anybody's head, like DP did when they asked for 100%.

Lock it up and see you in August!

hahahaha..... so much drama for all you kaneda disciples.... it's a pity you all cannot have some fun while the wait.... seriously, what harm can do? Just don't check the thread until august if you are a sad grumpy person..... or maybe you can cry to the mods...... come on people, cheer up a bit!

Nothing to do with cheering up or having 'fun'. This is the official thread from the manufacturer, the bullshit that is now in it does not belong here. It is called: show some respect. But some people just don't get that.

Calm down. No ones employer needs to hear about this.

#5849 3 years ago

I didn't realize I had to downvote every off topic post within threads, it really is just a little lighthearted fun on a forum, Jesus.
I love Heighway and are supporting them with Alien LE #35, and this is certainly not their official website either.

#5850 3 years ago
Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:

Good point. To all you new customers, that have never heard of Pinside, that were brought here by Google...

Go to the 1st page and first post of this thread and click on the black head and shoulders symbol located in the top area of that post.

Volia, you just filtered out all of the monkey business and are left with a concise history on everything you need to know about the development of this pin and how far it's come to this point, directly from the manufacturer.

88 posts/updates directly from Heighway Manufacturing to date focused specifically on the evolution of the Alien pin.

I just wish some of the lost and damaged souls that like to disturb this thread could learn to do the same.
