is this one of the new ones??

#16329 2 years ago
Quoted from nwpinball:

But pinball companies have never been that good at the social networking/online marketing aspect of the business, it's a new area of business expertise even the big guys don't understand very well.

...and also when they post here it...turns...into...a...shitshow...every...single...time...

Whoa, wait a minute. The person in that picture cannot possibly be Ted. He's not wearing a Hawaiian shirt. The guy is the pic is an imposter!

lol...the Hawaiian part is on the back!

#16524 2 years ago
Quoted from pingod:

Mine did the same thing when I installed the Alien head.
Works great when not engaged,sounds like gears stripping when it is.
Turned mine off as well.

These are the old ones, right?....not the new batch...

#16539 2 years ago

Sorry about that! I thought the new ones had no problem with the Xeno....

What is Roman/PDI glass and why do people prefer it so much more to other anti reflective glass?

It's made of crushed meteorite dust and impossible to scratch...even with a diamond drill!

I am starting to wonder how many STD. orders have been placed.

I don't want an STD!

So at least 3 more pages of dribble before unboxings.

#16831 2 years ago
Quoted from Bryno:

Now that ALIEN machines are clearly leaving the factory in numbers

I am waiting to see the actual Ship Tracking Number!

#16916 2 years ago
Quoted from Mr68:

I wonder what percentage of the population might say, "I don't get the desire to follow pinball".

Oh, trust me....It's BIG!

#16958 2 years ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

So at this point, How many of these games have actually shipped?

Only the people with the Tracking Number knows.....

#17006 2 years ago

HOLY CRAP! Some REAL news!!

#17053 2 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

I have been waiting on it from CT who hasn't sent anything besides the truck pick up. No ship info.

There should be no reason to not have the Ship Tracking Number. It would be fun to track the shipment!

Is it just me, or is anyone else enjoying the back and forth between Whysnow and Greenhornet....

#17330 1 year ago

I'm looking forward to playing the game again when everything works. Hopefully Allentown.

#17340 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

For those interested in hearing when people are actually going to get the game, latest as of today from CT is that Friday is the day for pick up. No earlier it seems so bumped 3 or 4 days but ship is definitely in so feeling good about Friday. FYI.

Don't forget Road Trip Pix!

#17344 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

Should I put those in there or keep them in here?

Here. We'll be seeing yours first as you will be waiting outside CoinTaker Friday at 6am....

#17346 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

Imagine a 100% working Alien.

I wanna play! Who's getting one in North Jersey??

#17445 1 year ago

You guys should go together...

#17461 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

Should be there within next hour.


#17466 1 year ago

Let's not start THAT again!

#17481 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

On my way back.

Do they REALLY have to write DO NOT DROP on the carton?? Then why not stencil OK TO DROP on some??

#17665 1 year ago

So, as of now we have to monitor the possible problems right out of the box. (needing to bend metal, light problems, no instructions. etc) And then fix the "Broken Tail Facehugger" situation. With so many modders here, it should be no problem. Glad to see the Xeno Head working good. Can't wait to see more unboxings....

#17688 1 year ago
Quoted from Archieball:

Random crowd watching Alien at this weekend's European Pinball Championship in Borås, Sweden.

Who's the Benjamin Franklin geezer in front??

#17698 1 year ago
Quoted from fosaisu:

Bernie Sanders, obviously. Not shocking that he'd turn up in Sweden, but I had no idea he was into pinball. Hopefully he got a game in after Ron Howard's brother was done playing.

#17717 1 year ago
Quoted from lodgingdolphin:

My backbox and side art light up fine.

Hey delt31. You should see how his is connected.

#17724 1 year ago

Get on the phone with them and tell them to ship out your stuff NOW!

#17735 1 year ago
Quoted from jeep-mustang:

all of the negativity (from none owners) is a real drag.

We are all potential customers ...and just worried about shitty customer service.

#17737 1 year ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

Yes, I’m in for a L/E and seeing some of these posts here make me wonder if the pin is still in beta/testing.

Yeah, seems like Quality Control is out the door and they are just trying to crank these out....

#17757 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

When I close coin door, they shut off. Also upon power up, the LED strips go FULL power for a split second and then turn off.

Sounds like something is mixed up there...

The level of Jankyosity is high!

#17759 1 year ago
Quoted from Chalkey:

Unfortunately the only evidence we have points to them not having enough cash to right the ship. I hope I get proven wrong in the next few months.

Yeah....they just don't understand that if they had better communication, fixed the problems, made refunds and sent out parts....the orders would be flooding in....JMO

#17761 1 year ago

Heighway needs a guy like Lloyd. We need an Ask Lloyd Tab for Alien.....

#17811 1 year ago
Quoted from Ferret:

I thank you for your kind words on the quality of the code in Alien. However, I had to sleep on your comment that Alien's depth isn't comparable to

Hi there. Do you have any better connection to the new owners? Can you get word to them that they're screwing up big time by not communicating with their customers and potential customers?

#17837 1 year ago
Quoted from Indypin:

and on the outside was a small note stating something about "before you power up the machine, be sure to replace these fuses

Holy shit! Nobody mentioned this! Delt!!

#17892 1 year ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

Are these issues design issues, parts quality issues, or manufacturing line issues putting the pin together?

I think they're just cranking them out and shipping. Probably no QC. They gotta get that money flowing. Hopefully nothing too bad will crop up....

#17935 1 year ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:


Yes, this and Ramp Up Quality Control. It seems everyone has had some kind of problem right out of the box.

#17958 1 year ago
Quoted from Lame33:

Maybe this is the real turning point for Heighway.

The turning point for Heighway is when they issue all the requested refunds, get people the service and parts they were promised and communicate better.

#18161 1 year ago
Quoted from Ferret:

The shaker may be connected the wrong way round on the power supply. As you look at the power supply from the coin door the red cable of the connector should be left and the black on the right side. If it is the other way round the game will reset when the shaker is active.

Has this worked for anyone?

#18246 1 year ago
Quoted from hank527:

I can say I am beyond dissatisfied and quite upset that people are not supporting us to get our refunds.

There are totally people here supporting you, and all who want it, to get their refunds. The no communication is bullshit and so far EVERY machine out of the box has had problems from simple to complex. They should be updating people every week. They should be getting parts for people waiting. I really wanted this machine...but not like this!

Quoted from Astropin:

I finally finished "find Jonesy"

Quoted from Davidus56:

And yes, I can afford it and I am for real.

I have a bridge......

#18380 1 year ago
Quoted from Davidus56:

Yes. This would be a labor of love. Very difficult to make a profitable business. But, if you control costs with low overhead and use programmers who are willing to develop after hours, at a steep discount - perhaps with some equity.... AND you have an awesome design, then you can probably turn a small profit.

Get together with those guys and lets make Forbidden Planet!!

#18382 1 year ago

Oh no....I meant another company. Forbidden Pinball.

#18405 1 year ago

Good to hear the Customer Service is stepping up! Now, they just have to ramp up QC!

#18413 1 year ago

Still waiting to see a cool custom painted Xeno Head!

#18469 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

I received the new screen in less than 3 days which was great to see.

Excellent! So, is now EVERYTHING working 100% on your machine?

#18504 1 year ago
Quoted from MK6PIN:

I was ( still am) quite happy for delt to get his game. There have been others that have received one, as well...all wins for all of us.

Yes!....let these early people get the bugs worked out. Hopefully Heighway can work out and refine the machine within the next few months....

#18564 1 year ago
Quoted from daudioguy:

Before you ask, I don't know when an update will drop. The devs have to draw a line in the sand and determine when to test and package one up. It will be sooner than later.

Thank YOU for coming here!

#18616 1 year ago
Quoted from SunKing:

Helmut has been busy lately. I just received an email regarding my 'pre-production' game. ...stay tuned.

#18690 1 year ago

BC....just BC....

#18736 1 year ago

I think they were very clear in what they were saying. They were left with few parts to build a number of machines. They need capital to buy parts in BULK to move forward. They will refund with extra cash when it becomes available. It seems they are trying their best, but the bottom line is they need money and I think they realize they will only get that when communication and quality control get better.

Is their a shot that feeds the upper flipper

Quoted from VividPsychosis:

the unboxing tomorrow afternoon!

Update? I'm getting excited myself!!

#19035 1 year ago

Yeah, that's all well and good, but let them get their fucking Quality Control rolling!

#19074 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

That said...just curious, is this really your only game? If so, then I could definitely see this as being a much bigger deal to you and being extra frustrating.

This is bullshit! These games are being rushed and shipped out the door with no Quality Control because they know people are just happy to get them no matter what. Sorry, but there is no excuse for this! (yes, I had tequila!) Dilly Dilly!

#19076 1 year ago

I agree...it just saddens me when someone is sooo looking forward to this machine and has a bunch of problems right off the bat. (sorry for rant)

#19105 1 year ago
Quoted from VividPsychosis:

You guys haven’t gotten a game? Do you guys not also do work at Heighway?

Work, yes....paid, no....

#19130 1 year ago
Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Love for ferret bcd daudioguy!!!!
Dilly dilly!!!!

Dilly Dilly!

#19147 1 year ago
Quoted from VividPsychosis:

The ramps on the PF, were absolutely disqusting. They had this sticky substance all over them, they had spots and other grime. I just don't know how else to describe it. Dan spent a good 10 minutes scrubbing and wiping down the ramps with a chemical degreaser and things to get them to a place where they were useable. Additionally they felt really rough and bumpy along the sides. We took some additional time with a cloth and scrubbed them down till it was back to normal.

So that crazy guy was RIGHT??

#19150 1 year ago
Quoted from frolic:

I wonder if they need to be replaced with a hard plastic version instead of soft bendy. Like a plastic spider.

Or some kind of material with wire substructure...

#19154 1 year ago
Quoted from PoMC:

Make a few negative observations about a game after playing it and you're labeled crazy.

Oh, come on...I was just joshin' ya...

#19233 1 year ago
Quoted from HighProtein:

Thumbs up this post if you believe all Alien pinball games should have black bolts in the cabinet instead of shiny metal ones.

Thumbs up this post if you believe all Alien pinball games should ship at least semi-working.

#19284 1 year ago

Seems the only good option is stainless and get it powdercoated yourself.

#19331 1 year ago

Anybody else losing their Facehugger Tails yet or is it better?

#19352 1 year ago
Quoted from Kneissl:

The LE buyers will be getting a much more tuned game than us early run owners.

I sure as hell hope so!

#19372 1 year ago
Quoted from Frli002:

Who whant a refound when the game is so great.

Well, there are a few who whant a REFUND.

#19402 1 year ago
Quoted from O-from-DO:

Good news for all open Alien-preorders: they put a cliffy around the scoop-hole in the production games!!!

A Cliffy "Cliffy" or their own version?

is there a list of common stuff to check?


#19621 1 year ago
Quoted from Indypin:

Since I did that, the ball fires 99% of the time now and works perfectly.

ALMOST perfectly ....

#19644 1 year ago
Quoted from Kneissl:

I like the cut off your jib.


#19672 1 year ago
Quoted from Ferret:

Any other observed bugs with the update?

Ferret, you are truly the best thing about this Thread and company!

#19694 1 year ago
Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Hey guys my Alien LE is about to ship out and Im being asked what color trim I want.

Blue looks terrible. MO
Green meh!
(best to powdercoat yourself)

#19790 1 year ago
Quoted from dzoomer:

Could be more but there's this info posted earlier.

Ok...so they don't owe him a machine, but there have been games shipped and he wasn't paid!

NOTE: Aurich made it clear....they DO owe him a machine.

#19808 1 year ago
Quoted from spoke:

But I agree announcing a new game now is probably not a smart move, especially if the folks who put their money down at the beginning are still without games (and if guys like Aurich have not been properly compensated).

Hell, people can't even get service for their FT!!

#19850 1 year ago

If they keep this up. (bad word of mouth, bad service, bad QC, bad communication, etc) They will make less than 100 machines and fold!
And. yes, they only have themselves to blame. They could have hit it out of the park with very little effort! Shame.

#19884 1 year ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

greenhornet have you played Alien yet?

Leave him alone...he's getting mean....

#19995 1 year ago
Quoted from Frli002:

This game is so great to play, had a pretty nice run at it tonight. All works great

Show off!

#20083 1 year ago
Quoted from PACMAN:

Well “if” the 45 LE shipment is true, how about you fully prepaid guys show up at CT with proof of payment and take a game from the premesis?

Let us know how that works out for ya....

#20102 1 year ago

Look...the bottom line is that if they went out of business, everybody would be screwed. At least this way there is hope. Even the poppadouchebag people now have a glimmer of hope. And that's better than nuthin!

#20157 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

Does yours fling?

Sounds like a personal problem.....

#20181 1 year ago
Quoted from bigdaddy07:

From those pictures, I'd say the green looks the least good. The blue looks much better then I expected...but I chose black and am sticking with it.

Good pix! At least you get a good idea what the colors look like. (er, stay with black)

They are working towards satisfying both the Cointaker shipment

The Cointaker shipment is fine and on the way?

#20294 1 year ago
Quoted from Pale_Purple:

Nothing is on the way to CT yet, it is being packed up now/soon.

All 72?

#20331 1 year ago

I'm pretty sure if I made a fuss that they'd take care of it.

Make a fuss....

#20353 1 year ago
Quoted from Roostking:

Or they will no longer be millionaires, whichever comes first.

You know the old saying....You know how to become a millionaire in pinball? ....start out as a billionaire....

#20357 1 year ago
Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Officially out of the Alien Club.

Sorry to say this will probably happen more and more for the Average Knowledge pinball guy who can't be constantly fixing these prototype machines.

#20359 1 year ago
Quoted from WeirPinball:

It just took a bunch of my time to creatively fix problems that shouldn't have been there in the first place.

I'm talking about the person who doesn't have the time or knowledge to do this. (like me)

#20368 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

that is ALL pinball Ted. You constantly bash on certain new games but honestly you are ignorant to even work on them at all.

Hey! Do I have to give you a stern talking to at Allentown?

Quoted from Whysnow:

Yes, but it better involve some good sipping tequila...

Oh, it does! Can't wait...

#20382 1 year ago

Make sure your machine is on that shipment before sending money....

#20389 1 year ago
Quoted from Ive:

I hate to be so down on a UK based pinball company but this is in a tailspin now surely

If so, they only have themselves to blame. People were DYING to support this company. But terrible communication, crappy Quality Control, spotty tech help, lack of refunds, or even a CLEAR plan on when people would get a refund or their machine is not helping...

#20391 1 year ago
Quoted from FightNightFZ:

Soo.....what you're all saying is that I shouldn't purchase one of these next week when they're in CT's hands? Let's say the stars align, the LE's are in Melissa's hands, everything is in working order

Well, if you know how to work on machines and like the theme...go for it!

#20395 1 year ago
Quoted from SunKing:

...and for those keeping score - this is a true 'production' ready machine that replaces my pre-production machine I purchased at TPF

Did you return that machine to Cointaker?

#20399 1 year ago
Quoted from SunKing:

Yep - that's it. Went straight from my SUV to Cointaker's truck. It wasn't even worthy of being on the floor for TPF...not a good representation of the game.

Now that I've put a few games into the new production machine on the latest code - it is much more polished - and damn near everything works! I've got a couple lights out, and my magnet is not as 'flingy' as I'd like despite making the menu adjustments. It works, but not as violently as I'd like. Oh - it was cool to see the Xeno actually grab and eat the ball~!

..gotta run for now..

Excellent! You've been through a lot! I hope you enjoy the game. I'm looking forward to playing it again in the future after things are worked out.

#20461 1 year ago

See...this is what happens when there's nothing to talk about.....

#20468 1 year ago

Talked to Roger at Heighway today, wanted my address to send me a game.

#20547 1 year ago
Quoted from Durzel:

Funny thing is, HW could dispel all of the skepticism simply by providing photos of the LEs/non-LEs ready to ship, etc. At this point I'd want to see a copy of todays paper in the photo too. Even regular production updates would help, with photos & videos of the processes, etc. Would cost them nothing, and give customers new and old alike confidence that they're actually doing things behind closed doors. Right now radio silence in between Nigerian-prince-scam looking emails does the opposite.

They could end all the rumors, bad feelings, etc with a quick note here every 2 weeks or so. There is only one reason they're not doing that....

#20550 1 year ago
Quoted from Travish:

Because pinsiders would be out for blood and cause a huge scene/stink?

No, because if they followed the lead of Spooky or American Pinball, people would be more understanding of their situation. IMO

#20609 1 year ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

They're doing what they can to keep the doors open

They are NOT communicating with loyal customers. THAT'S how you keep your doors open!

It's that thing that goes on top of the machine.

#20670 1 year ago
Quoted from greenhornet:

sounds like you missed an opportunity
to step up and become pinballs Edward Snowden.

Yeah....worked great for him....

#20684 1 year ago
Quoted from Pale_Purple:

She also told me she honestly doesn’t know if the company will survive

How can they with shipping machines you have to be a tech to own, little to no communication, no parts, no service....they should hire someone from Pinside to go over and oversee the company.

#20686 1 year ago
Quoted from swenny:

She told me that HP did have the container ready to ship but she refused to pay them because she didn't have assurances that the games would work and that spare parts would be available. She didn't want to put any additional customer's funds at risk with a questionable game.

#20691 1 year ago

The theme is so great SOMEONE will pick it up and do it right. Look at how many machines there are 2 versions of including POTC.
A great game for American Pinball.

#20695 1 year ago
Quoted from buba:

Does anybody have an idea where i can get one, since Heighway Pinball is not answering at all to my mail?

Quoted from Ilushka85:

If you show me which gear you need I will pull it from mine and print you one

#20806 1 year ago

I posted this on the other Thread....
Well, maybe this...... Most people know they are getting machines that will probably have some kind of trouble. CT can tell Heighway they will take the machines COD. They can also tell their customers they take machines "as is"..... Just a thought....

#20811 1 year ago
Quoted from Mr68:

Would you do it?

I thought people were doing it now. They are buying machines, and still want them, even though they know they will not function 100%

#20826 1 year ago
Quoted from jlm33:

I don't think the majority of Alien customers would be ready for this.

I only meant that maybe some people would want the game bad enough to take it as is. I'm sure CT could sell the games with problems to someone who would love to work on it. Just a thought...er, I guess not a good one....

#20842 1 year ago
Quoted from Jvspin:

They could probably buy the container full and sell them as is at a nice profit

At this point I'd only buy COD!

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

I really hope something can be done for customers with money tied up over there.

Yes, of course....but don't know about their laws there. I hope people get something....

Quoted from Ferret:

Heh, I'm the exact opposite of you. I make double sure that I love a game, buy a good copy of it, and then never sell it...

At any rate, I'm glad you've loved the game!

Will you hang around and continue on?

Is it possible to find out where Slyway bought boards and parts and just buy from them?

Quoted from BD_Designs:

It truly sucks and I am quite sure some of the employees would have gladly spoken up about the problems they were seeing had Andrew not been such a sleazebag and threatened his own people with lawsuits.

Some employees were spoken to. Chris spoke to one. I tried to do as much homework as possible. All the warning signs were published here including employees leaving because they were not paid, changing factories because they weren't being paid, vendors not being paid, Dennis not being paid, etc.
When these things were mentioned, people were jumped on.

Quoted from Topher5000:

aurich you deserve & are owed the game. If I were you, I'd keep it.

Did it get shipped??

Quoted from robotron:

people going nuts over them.

Yeah, including me. Going nuts because the Xeno head was disconnected and the ball took 6 times to come out of the VUK. It played like shit, both times I played it.

You clearly deserve to get the money that you are owed.

Yes....and this!

Will Heighway/Andrew/Pinball Brothers be at Pinfest in Allentown?

Another kind soul warned me as well last year at Pinfest and it took me a while to heed the warning.

Quoted from Ferret:

She doesn't have much else in quotes or action that would really enhance the game, IMHO.

Ferret...I forgot...did you get paid?

Quoted from Aurich:

All I can say is as far as I know Fox said we couldn't use her without her permission,

I think plain and simple, it just came down to money....

Quoted from Aurich:

ask her about the Alien pinball you'll get a blank look and she won't know what you're talking about.

Oh I totally believe that. Andrew probably just spoke to an agent, got a figure and said, "Ahhh, we don't need her anyway!"

Quoted from Jvspin:

I wonder if she would be offended if she came across the machine and discovered she wasn't in it.

Little chance of that happening now.

Don't know if she likes pinball. Met her once, nice lady. For her, it would just be a job. Ask about rights, if ok, pay fee, use her image and/or voice. Happens all the time...

I don't, but I do have one of the 28" limited edition LE Backglass posters from Brian Allen.

I have one as well. Nice art!

Need 13 more to make it even!

Quoted from NPO:

be tech savvy if you buy one. Some people dont know how to take the glass off their games, or they're too scared to even change a bulb. This is not the game for them.

It's not going to be any problems repairing these games.

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

So was one of the concepts to make shots to build up a timer, that eventually gave you time to view a nudie peep show of Playmates on the playfield LCD?

Er,I actually like that idea...

Gadzooks! Sell it! Unless you REALLY know how and WANT to work on a machine. Let somebody fix it up and enjoy it. Take the money and run....

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Keep it in the box and sell it for 20k

Hah! I think if that was the case, it would be gone already....
