Not sure if you’re taking a count, but if so - I’m one of the fully paid, patiently waiting LE pre-orders...

Yeah, thanks. And yes, I was kind of interested in a count. Doesn't have to be perfect (and a pinside count never will be anyway), was just trying to get a ballpark idea of how many people on here are in this position.

At least you're patient

Stones posted there were around 63 or so pinsiders in for an LE a year ago (compiled from this thread). Wouldn't venture a guess now. These threads are a hard read for me going back to the start.....whew!!!!

It was a fantastic list before the refund mess because by far not all refunders posted their request here.

Nice to see a whale coming up you did not post your # here. Btw I am full too (#433).

Agreed.....it was exciting times back then
...we can only hope and wait now...

I got notification a few weeks back that Heighway wanted my choice of colours for the trim on my LE (black, I don't like the blue or green). Originally ordered direct through Heighway, then had my deposit migrated over to Nitro Pinball.

So, it seems like the gears are every-so-slowly turning, finally. If I had to guess, I'll probably get my machine in May. Though, this time last year, I said the same thing, so who knows.

How did you go about doing this? Wish that was an option with Cointaker here in the US.

I can't imagine there are very many of us direct orders left, since I'm sure quite a few of that list included cointaker orders and, like you said, there have undoubtedly been a lot of refund requests.

#459 3 years ago

For those fixing the list...

Quoted from nephasth:

#187 - Ordered 10/22/14

Paid-in-full Refund on 9/6/17

Tommy with Nitro offered it, and there was some brief discussion between all 3 parties involved and it was agreed that my deposit would be honored on behalf of Nitro. I'm sure Cointaker could do something similar if you asked them about it.

LE #125 ordered 10/2016 (I think). Ordered direct via Heighway website. Would prefer #25 to match my WoZ but I’ll talk to them about that when the time comes.

#462 3 years ago

#412 ordered in the beginning via email to heighway. wired deposit
then i got an email early last year to send balance because pin had to be paid in full and my le was shipping very soon. andrew knew no pins were shipping but still asked for payment.
now i have my money tied up and waiting for my le while new buyers are getting theirs. pretty fd up situation.

#316 LE Paid in full to Heighway - 10/2016
No worthwhile communication to speak of other then the occasional placating emails to old money and a response to a verification request that my order was paid in full and in the backlog.

#464 3 years ago

Businesses go bankrupt and shut down all the time. Nothing unusual. However, asking for the balance of payments by pretending that the Le were ready to ship is a whole other matter. That is one that of the most reprehensible and despicable actions a business can do.

Would that be considered fraud or trading as insolvent?

I don't post in the Alien thread anymore, but read once in awhile......glad overseas guys are seeing the game.....just beyond burnt out waiting this long for a grail theme.....my $1500.00 is out there somewhere, so maybe my #212 will arrive someday, but just can't have any source of true hope anymore.....

How many LE’s exist and can anyone please post which numbers they have?

#472 3 years ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

LE #221

#473 3 years ago

Looks like yours arrived safe from Australia?

Looks the serial numbers are 100 less than game numbers

So 219 is 119 serial

#474 3 years ago

LOL at the "500". It's way more limited than that!

#475 3 years ago

Ended up finding #139 from a collector in Sweden. 1.2 in, and machine plays amazing (yes, I did lose my $1500.00 deposit to HW, btw)

I counted about 85/90 alien LE edition in the subject

On the pinside description of the pinball machine we can read 185 machines produced, I do not know where this info comes from or if it is reliable ...

I would have found it interesting to redo a subject which includes all the LE numbers listed in ascending order and as well as the standard edition with serial number to avoid duplication.

I'm really curious how many machines he actually produced

According to the company, there was less than 200 Aliens produced. When you check, ad owners and else, the LE is much more rare. The ratio is around 1 LE for 4 SE. there was around between 40 to 50 LE ever produced. More common is green , then blue and black.

#479 1 year ago

there are already much more LE than 45/50 in the listing of numbers on the subject .... (~ 85)

I think in reality there are about as many LEs as there are SEs ...

The numbers came from HW. It’s in the Alien thread somewhere. Just check the past ads as well and the ratio. In France, i ve never seen a LE for sale, all the ads were SE. but whatever at the end, it’s rare.

#481 1 year ago

I’ve got 264 out of 500. Green. Geeze, I hope it’s real for the price I paid!

#482 1 year ago

LE #430 GREEN over here. Bought NIB in Austria from RS.

I have Seen a 497... Sûre they didnt make 500 PCS... So i dont understant how they were numered...

This thread is old and was mainly for preorders. It don’t give any info on the list of actual owners of this game. You should look to the actual thread to get real infos.
It’s’even a bit sad how it turns out with all those preorders...

#485 1 year ago

Ok i will do a New thread including se and le !
We will know how many !!!!

They were not numbered with system and, for sure, there are no 500 LE out in the wide world.
