I wrote this weeks ago with no response:

Good morning,
I have some questions regarding ALIEN Pinball Machine.
How far is the progress that the Game will be finished and leave prototype status?
Last month I talked to Heighway Staff at EXPO in Eindhoven, and I was told, that a lot of playfields have to be replaced.
So, what is the problem and what is the solution to prevent damage in the future?
Maybe same problems like JJP has?
After playing the Game my later impression was, that some function are not done yet and stil under development?
I think the small monitor on the upper left is not bulletproof... is that really the last design?
Often the movies running to fast and not synchronous... is that a current issue?
How long is the delivery time after signed order and what kind of editions will be available?
Is the 35th anniversary a limited edition for selected distributer only?
Staff told me it will be possible to rebuilt all simple equipped games into complete limited edition or similar?
So all the games are prepared for an upgrade?
I heard rumors of an option to order oldfashion cabinet and backbox for ALIEN if wished by customers ... is that true?
I like the innovative design and the Theme of the Pinball Machine and I really think about to buy it.
But actually there are more questions as answers.


So, some days later this was my answer:

Ok, no answer is also an answer – thanks for nothing!

I'm sorry for all you guys who lost a lot of money!

So, is there no chance at all that ALIEN will be resurrected in the future to finalize this extraordinary Pinball Machine?
The idea was good, the development was good, the team was good, just the management was a disaster!

#21566 7 months ago

What a shame... last year I visited EXPO in the Netherland together with a friend and we used to play this ALIEN more then all the other Pins there. Again and again and it was really impressive.

I'm interessted in the statement that there are no Manuals or Schematics available for the ALIEN?
What about the delivered machines in Europe?
I'm not sure what Regulation or Guidelines may grip, but all these Information should be available to the customer?

Unfotunately this could end up in a bug hunt!

A really bad idea.
Thers a similar construction at the F-14 on the right upper playfield, often you directly hit the peak of the flipper, the rubber rips off!
Replace the post again!

VIVAK is a description for synthtic material PET-G and it's the same material playfield protectors are made of.
Plexi might often break, VIVAK won't break.
