Quoted from robotron:

andrew do you have the full throttle kits ready to ship with alien pin for those that are buying the ft kit?

We have Full Throttles already on the line, with more about to start - so that shouldn't be a problem

#10953 70 days ago

Congratulations Andrew !! Nice work !

#10954 70 days ago

I'll enjoy my waning moments of having the only Alien Pinball in the USA...

#10957 70 days ago

It's real now...

You don't live in Pennsylvania. Oh wait... you have been working on the prototype. I wonder what owner #1 would think if a "field of dreams" car procession pulled up at his house?

#10959 70 days ago

So... that was the big update. Can't get much bigger than that.

#10960 70 days ago
Quoted from Travish:

Trucks leaving stacked front to back with Alien pins will be as big as it gets, that will be good to see!

#10961 70 days ago

All right....great to see this at last!!!

Now the hard part for me: watching people get the game in their house and seeing if will be the home run we're all hoping for.

#10962 70 days ago

SWEET!!! Congrats Andrew and Heighway Team!! I was excited at Expo to see it, more excited to play it, and now I am even more excited to see it ship!! GREAT job!! I'm saving up my money as we speak! I plan on buying one by the end of summer!!! Christmas in July baby!!!

Brian.....who has a lot more dollars to save after the one I gave Andrew at Expo for my "official" deposit...(kidding for all those that might take that comment seriously!)

Nice !!

I had a feeling it was going to be a bit lighter, that's good to hear!

#10964 70 days ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Ok so who is the lucky guy getting this pin!

I thought for sure that when you and Andrew spoke on the phone and you decided to not get a refund it was because you were promised the first one?!

I hope Andrew washed his hands after touching that shirt...

#10967 70 days ago

So now that that's done, what's next?

Congrats on the milestone! Looks like an amazing game and if I was in the market for a NIB, it would be my first and only choice.

#10968 70 days ago
Quoted from HeighwayPinball:

ALIEN PINBALL - NOW SHIPPING!!
It has been a long time coming, but we reached another huge milestone today when we shipped out our first customer Alien Pinball game.
It has taken us a long time to get to this point, but the whole team is immensely proud of the game that is now being shipped, and we can't wait for customers to start unboxing their machines and finally getting to play the game.
More games will be shipping this week and next week, as we start gearing up for mass production in the weeks ahead - and we will continue to post more shipping photos here.

Congrats team Heighway, what an achievement

Looking forward to see more pins shipping to fellow pinheads and reading some stories about their experiences here.

Great times ahead

#10970 70 days ago

Let's see some detailed gameplay videos, folks! I've got some cash burning a hole in my pocket...

#10971 70 days ago

Awesome! (And hoping we can figure out how to get one for the Northwest Pinball & Arcade Show this June)

#10972 70 days ago

#10975 70 days ago

So it's true. They're coming to the USA now. Well sir, you can send my Alien by plane, I don't want to wait for the boat trip.

maiiiiiiis non

#10977 70 days ago

Wonder who the lucky customer is? Pinsider? It's like finding Willy Wonkas golden ticket.

#10978 70 days ago

Not me this time. I'll be getting a kit when they become available to swap in my full throttle cabinet.

#10979 70 days ago

Congratulations, very exciting!

amazed it is not you!

#10981 70 days ago

Didn't David Thiel say he was waiting for a machine to finalize the sounds? (maybe I saw that on Facebook) so perhaps it's going to him. Or even better, maybe it's going to a distributor, such as nitro which is just down the road from me! One can hope!

Would make sense, would be pretty expensive and pointless Heighway just shipping out one customers game alone instead of a truck load. The more hands on David can get with the finished pin the better for all of our ears

The game has gone to a customer.

The software is in a very good place right now, but we still work to improve on it. David will get a game shortly which will allow him to make more improvements

Quoted from JonM:

air frieght is 1 at a time and the shipping company picks them up. Guessing the first ones will almost all go freight as buyers are willing to pay the extra to get the game sooner

I would have to assume down the line that they will go out by the truckload or more likely boatload.

I am glad the line is starting to move and Heighway seems to have a measure approach of getting the first few out slowly and ramping up pace and things get worked out.

Wasn't aware of that, makes sense and totally agree when truckloads are leaving the factory that's going to be a great thing too see.

Is the main toy the alien grab now programmed into the game and active?

#10988 70 days ago
Quoted from musketd:

there are videos of it in action (and pretty damn cool if you ask me!)

I was told they had a test rig with over 15000 grabs and working all good. Made me happy to hear they are giving the mechs a good work out.

#10989 70 days ago

I know this is nit-picky, and I apologize if this has been addressed, but is the alien head's mouth agape or is that just me? Why doesnt it close when not in use? I think having it open and close when the screaming noise happens would be a nice touch.

Still looking sweet. Cant wait to see these in peoples hands and....dare I say...PLAY ONE ON LOCATION!?!?!

The jaw opens and closes. The xenomorph snarls, hisses and eats steel pinballs

#10992 70 days ago

Who's getting the first? I'm sure they will come forward and let us all watch the first opening of the first Alien!

That's :awesome Andrew. Congrats.
I see Kulek crossed the pond to work for you

Lmfao! I thought the same thing!

Great job Andrew! Way to go man. All the best!

#10996 70 days ago

I'm assuming someone will be bringing an Alien to MGC this year? At least I hope so!

#10997 70 days ago

Congrats Heighway Pinball!! I can hardly wait to play it!!

#10998 70 days ago

Will there be an alien at pintastic this year?

#10999 70 days ago
Quoted from Mfsrc791:

Will there be an alien at pintastic this year?

At the very least if heighway is not there with one we will bring ours from The Sanctum along with the linked fastbreaks and our whole tournament bank. Might have to go with the 27' truck again....
