There are a few Pinsiders I honestly can't say I'll miss if they drop out of the hobby.

#14652 2 years ago
Quoted from wcbrandes:

Hey Rarehero are you selling your machines?

If I had anything to put in the space where I keep them - I probably would...when I start having kids, I'll need the extra room - if you see me put up 5 games for sale, you know I'm having a baby lol

Quoted from wcbrandes:

I'm looking for a Ghostbusters premium, I know you don't list it but you have one

Cute.

I never have, and never will own a GB. Ever.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

i'd chuckle if its Stern have bought it and all the cry babies who said they'd never buy another Stern suddenly had no choice
*Note: this was a joke*

If stern were to take it on, cointaker wouldn't be out....must be a company cointaker dosnt sell. Or atleast that's my take on it.

I am just asking him what he thinks since he seems to be implying something.

#14660 2 years ago

Is there any news? I thought it was today.

#14661 2 years ago
Quoted from DougPiranha:

No, Andrew said "coming soon"...might be a few days (or more)...no timeline given.

#14662 2 years ago
Quoted from DougPiranha:

Yes!!! Apparently both Stern AND JJP are backing Heighway now...plus there's a possible crowdpak source and someone mentioned a bake sale.

Quoted from DCFAN:

Just guessing since it's such a big secret. Guessing is fun especially when you end up right. Cointaker pulled the pin from its site, big announcement coming, people gonna be happy....my guess as good as any of the other crap that's been spewin here.

wcbrandes there's one in Vancouver Bill. Not sure if this is TMC's...

Quoted from Rarehero:

Yup. The pinball hobby is massively enjoyable without anything new. New is interesting, especially if it's a theme you love...

Pretty safe to assume you've not yet discovered all pinball has to offer... but I guess venting about the latest game/offer is more satisfying than actually exploring what made those other games keepers, popular, interesting, etc.

#14666 2 years ago

Seems like that link only works on mobile - here's one that should work for anyone:

Still not worth reading, no matter how many times it's linked to. It's just some distributor who doesn't want to distribute Heighway pins any more. If not fake news then it's certainly non news.

Yes I have.

You completely misread what I wrote. I was advocating the exploration of the oldies vs. the new stuff. All the existing pinballs = awesome. New stuff = forget about it.

Maybe Heighway is forging an alliance with JJP and with one fell swoop they will crush the competition and restore order to the pinball marketplace?!

Nope!!!!

Naw...
It's more likely that ARA would become majority owner than that...

Yeah you know with other space themed pinball machines being officially announced it may be a great time to let us now wtf is going on.....

#14678 2 years ago

i got news(actually friend send me video) one more pin landed in uk , was delivered to his friend .

so there is hope and light in tunel

i still think to pull trigger to this one damn

I have to say (and I'm a HUGE Stars Wars FAN...whole family is)...I'm not impressed with what I'm seeing so far...at all.

#14680 2 years ago

I'm still in if they'll make me one, and I think the starwars pin looks like solid fun.

That might be why we have heard nothing today, if Stern had knocked SW out of the park it could have potentially over shadowed any good news/announcement Heighway made. Waiting made sense and now that SW has clearly disappointed or at least left a lot of people underwhelmed now would be the perfect time for Heighway to make their announcement. Strike while the iron is hot as they say here in the UK.

I hope you're right, bottom line is I just want the parts to fix my game or at least communication from the company explaining to me why I'm not getting any service for my game.

I'd still rather have the dark foreboding Alien atmoshphere in a pin for home with Mr Thiel's audio work than another Star Wars remake. The Star Wars theme is wondeful but it's been done already. Way more value for me with the Heighway offering.

No mind tricks here...

I am just guessing, if it was me making an announcement that could make or break me, I wouldn't want a mega announcement from a competitor to over shadow it, but I would also be as ready as possible to pounce with my announcement if my competitors fell flat (which has kind of happened here with the SW announcement).

Either way I would like nothing more than to see all current Alien owners made whole along with all that have preordered.

Still in on an Alien, but I need to get my game soon this monkey on my back is getting heavy and needs to be fed.

Where are you guys finding these Stern Starwars rumors? I am getting ready to fill in the hole where the Alien is supposed to go eventually with a game and would like to know more about a star wars pin.

You kidding? There are like 10 threads in the last 3 hours. Everything but the prices it looks like.

Welcome, and you've come to the right place to learn all about SW.

#14693 2 years ago

Filing my chargeback tomorrow due to no email response. Wish me luck!

Gooooood!! Everyone bail so I can get my Alien LE sooner!!!

Did you try calling?

#14696 2 years ago

With the price in the Uk for a star wars pro (£6.2k) and alien (£5.650k) it sure seems that its a no brainer to go for alien for the most bang for buck.

#14697 2 years ago

If Alien ships, I will be tempted to that dark side.....

#14698 2 years ago

"pix or it didn't happen"

You'd WANT to see a pic of that? Yuck. No thanks!

Really? Im not the one that keeps bringing it up SW. Found the SW site, finally, SW is very disappointing. Lets get back to more important things... is that monitor commercial grade, how about those silver screws....
