This pin looks amazing. Heighway has earned my first NIB purchase. I made my down payment on the LE a couple days ago.

If I hadn't already ordered an LE, I'd be ordering one now, after seeing that video. Very impressive operation, that will obviously keep getting better.

Quoted from Vyzer2:

Wish I would have placed an early deposit.

When you placed your deposit only matters if you're paying in installments.

My understanding, from communications with Heighway, is that they'll be fulfilling orders for all machines that are paid-in-full before beginning to fulfill orders for games that are paid for in installments. So, paying in full now will get you a game before someone who is paying in installments, even if they made their downpayment several months ago. I made the initial payment, and was planning to pay in installments, but am now planning to pay the balance in full, once my tax return comes in. This will get me in on the initial LE run, and move my delivery date ahead at least a couple months.

This is if you're ordering directly from Heighway. I'm not sure how it works if you're ordering through Cointaker.

I think he was asking about the glass that covers the display in the playfield.

This just arrived from Amazon. Intense research ahead!

I put a deposit on an LE in early March, and just sent an email today, requesting to begin the refund process. I ordered directly from Heighway, and added the 27" LCD and airfreight shipping, so I have $2,400 down. We'll see how this goes, and I'll update the progress in this thread.

I've played a few games on Alien, and I think it has potential to be a great pin. However, there are proven companies with some great pins that I'd rather own. I certainly hope that Heighway is successful, and that Alien sells in large quantities. If so, perhaps I'll pick one up on the used market some day.

Quoted from AndrewH:

I would therefore advise people to refrain from making any libellous or slanderous statements about me – as I will defend myself and my integrity.

What integrity is there to defend?

p.s. I hope your hydrofoil sinks and predatory fish bite off your vagina.

I'm emailing Mark Hunt with the details of my transaction history with Heighway Pinball. I'm also forwarding him any documentation and communications that I had with Heighway pinball. This details my refund request on 9/17/17.

I am also questioning the legitimacy of transferring assets to Pinball Brothers, to avoid paying refunds, as well as the refusal of Heighway Pinball to ship games to existing pre-order customers, opting instead to generate income by selling to new customers.

Anybody who was swindled by these thieves should do the same. It might improve your chances of receiving any sort of refund from 0% to maybe 3% (no, this is not a scientifically derived number). There is absolutely no way that Heighway Pinball will present details of any customer indebtedness. The only way your information will be included is if you forward the information yourself.
