I preordered!

Getting the LE. The layout looks cool and unique, but I'm a little concerned about the upper right flipper getting in the way. Can't wait to see the whitewood!

Quoted from HeighwayPinball:

We are working on a possible major new toy at the moment, featuring a xenomorph, which will really enhance the game, if it appears. More news on this later.

Are Xenomorphs allowed to "interact" with a pinball?

This looks really great Andrew. Thanks for the update!

Quoted from chrisnack:

It would be nice if you were 100% committed to customer service.
I know of 3 of us waiting for refunds and your company hasn't bothered to respond to a single one of us or acknowledge any of our requests for refunds. That's roughly $24,000 you are refusing to give back to customers.

I'm in the same boat. I have sent 3 emails asking for a refund of my deposit and I have not received a single response. Why are you ignoring us Andrew?

#13436 2 years ago
Quoted from chrisnack:

Posting on here seems to be the only way to even get a response from Heighway. After posting this morning, now all of us waiting on refunds got this canned email within the last hour:
Hi xxxxx,
I sincerely apologise for any delays in our response to your refund request. Our standard refund policy is to refund your payment within 30 days. As we are moving towards full production this process maybe delayed up to 60 days. I am sorry for any inconvenience that this may cause but we will endeavour to resolve your refund as soon as we can.
Thank you once again for your time and your interest in our games.
I don't honestly believe it for one bit, it's just yet another "wait, there's more".

Interesting. I did not receive that canned response. I still have not had any response. What I've noticed on this thread is that the squeaky wheel usually gets the grease from Heighway Pinball. People have waited months for a refund and it has only been acknowledged once they post in this thread. Andrew usually chimes in at that point and says something like "My apologies <insert excuse here> I will take care of this tonight." So now it seems this is no longer the case. The wheels are still squeaking. I've never waited 60 days for a refund on anything.

Andrew, please explain to your existing customers and potential future customers why refund requests are being handled so poorly and often ignored.

Quoted from Whysnow:

Wasnt it only 1k deposit?

I was an early preorder and it was a $1500 deposit for Alien LE.

#13441 2 years ago

Question for those more familiar with Paypal policies than myself. My deposit was done through Paypal 2 1/2 years ago. Since I have never received the product my deposit was for, do I have the right to file a claim with Paypal at this point to get my deposit back?

#13445 2 years ago
Quoted from Wickerman2:

Wondering again, why people are bailing out when production is just starting? Why did you wait this long and then suddenly, when games start to trickle out decide I need my money back ASAP?

A lot happens in 2 1/2 years.

#13467 2 years ago
Quoted from nwpinball:

This seems weird to me too. They've now produced about 2 dozen games which are making it to shows and private collectors, as well as being put out on location. They are working out a few problems before ramping up to full production. It seems like while behind schedule, things are happening and people are about to get their games in the next few months.

Not sure why this is so weird. Don't you think it's possible that someone's financial situation has changed in 2 1/2 years time? Or maybe some people have seen the videos of gameplay and have decided it's not a game they want after all? Or maybe people have heard rumors of Heighway Pinball's financial future and are nervous to move forward with them? Or...or...or....lots of possibilities why someone may request a refund. It doesn't matter what the reason is. I think the more pertinent question would be why Highway Pinball is not refunding people in a timely fashion, and in some cases completely ignoring refund requests?

Quoted from chrisnack:

I got confirmation about a week later after emailing back/forth with Andrew directly. Beyond the initial generic email that a bunch of us got (that you referenced), I wasn't really given any timeline.
I don't believe the other guys got theirs, otherwise I would have heard through PM's.

I'm still waiting on my refund as well. When I asked for a status update Heighway did not respond.
