Just confirmed with Melissa at Cointaker that my game was on that ship!

BTW in my brief conversation with her she mentioned some people had been giving her a hard time about shipping. Saying they had been promised free shipping from Highway? If that came from Andrew you can forget it. If it came from the new owners you better work it out with them. That's not Cointakers problem and they obviously can't ship pins for free.

BTW she quoted me a great shipping price (but I'm not too far from them).

Quoted from Astropin:

Saying they had been promised free shipping from Highway

I was in for an LE for over 2 years - no longer in and I had no discussions with Andrew right before he left....however, I had direct discussions with him at the outset and his position was always that Highway covers international shipping to the US distributor so the buyer is only responsible for domestic shipping. I can see how people might have gotten confused, but that was always the position clearly laid out to me and on this forum (obviously I have no idea what other individuals were told privately).

That's also what it said on the Heighway order form.

Must be some LE owners that ordered from Andrew. Order from CT include shipping to your door.

You mean SE? Only SE's have been shipped so far. I ordered direct from Highway...but I was never promised free shipping.

#17456 2 years ago

Free shipping is nice but I'm not waiting around for a game to be delivered...always worth the pick up!

Depends on the distance. Cointaker is a solid 9hr drive for me...one way.

Yeah I misunderstood what you were saying by cointaker being "close" at first reading.

#17459 2 years ago

Almost go time. 20 min away but had to stop for a call. Sprint network is terrible. Should be there within next hour.

Can you take a pic of the 25 or 24 or 23 games sitting in CT warehouse? I need a rise today and that would do it.

#17464 2 years ago

Morgan sent me this pic this morning (maybe posted somewhere else). he said there was a large order of the colored armor arriving shortly for the LE's and would send better pics of actual shade once they arrived:

No coin mechs? Can you confirm what coin doors they have? Weird! Is that something CT adds maybe?

#17466 2 years ago

Let's not start THAT again!

#17467 2 years ago

On my way back. Only one set of beacons received. Mine did not have them.....

#17468 2 years ago

Maybe the units for Nitro (canada) don't have the coin mechs. In the pic of CT #7 (second picture) it reads US COIN if I'm not mistaken.

This new pic of CT #1 says DOUBLE for the coin mechs, so maybe all of the cointaker units have double coin mechs (2 slot doors)

ya, we need the coin doors that accept beaver pelts and wolf teeth!

#17470 2 years ago

This guy is gonna have a panic attack when he sees his box...
Im sure the game is fine, but someones gonna sweat it when they see it...

Heighway was also charging $350 for air shipment.

Direct quote from Morgan: "The airfreight option is a direct shipment from our factory floor to your door. "

Maybe it fell off of a forklift?

#17473 2 years ago

In route but they had Canadian and us machines each had zone Coin option so some us machines had no coin Mac while others which of the one I got head double coin Mac like you would typically see. Pardon typos

#17474 2 years ago

I paid for air freight for my Full Throttle back in the day from his factory to my house. It was extra.

Andrew always presented it that he would ship to the US distribution point, but you were responsible from that point on.

#17476 2 years ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

That's something running into it... another box/item was rammed into the carton or machine ran into it.

Not likely to be internal damage.

I spoke with Melissa and she said all of hers have coin mechs, but there were a few (as seen in the photo) that do not.

#17478 2 years ago

congratulations to all who are getting thier games.... you are all way more patient than I was....

Congratulations! Oh, and drive carefully!

When I picked up my AFMr, it was a 10-minute drive from my house, but I kept looking over my shoulder to make sure it was still really there.

#17480 2 years ago

Great to see a big delivery like that happening, hopefully this is just the start of mass shipping by heighway! Can't wait to see what the final LE trim looks like.

#17481 2 years 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??

#17482 2 years ago

It would be nice to see those that called Melissa and CT falsehoods, come back and apologize.

They always have their customer interests first!

#17483 2 years ago

Are any of these CoinTaker pins headed to NYC?

+1000, but retractions will never be posted. Chris and Melissa rock!!!

Thats a ratchet strap in truck to cointaker. Those us shippers have no clue on doing straps. Lets hope theres no damage.
This picture is 4 years in the making. Glad it's finally here, at least, round one.
Congrats to those in first batch.

Glass isn't broken. Sweet

As a former stern owner and current jjp the build quality looks very good. Playfield is so packed with detail (just the bottom part that is visible right now in person looks sick) it screams LE and it's just their standard. Half way there

#17493 2 years ago

Great stuff!!! Man, I’m happy for you, and Alien, in general!!

I’ll be curious to see what you think of the game in comparison to Woz and Dialed In (I see you own them too)! Congrats and have fun!!!

#17495 2 years ago

I know you can’t watch the game, but maybe just turn the tube on....down 3-0....like our chances if some of your good fortune wears off...unless your an Astro’s fan, of course...

What do the APC targets do? And how are they used in modes? Any stacking complexities?
