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

Thank you for update!!!

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 1 year 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 1 year 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 1 year 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.....

I'll keep the thread up for people to post and share ...might be a good read.....someday. Just not now....

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

#472 1 year ago
Quoted from jonesjb:

LE #221

#473 1 year ago

Looks like yours arrived safe from Australia?

Looks the serial numbers are 100 less than game numbers

So 219 is 119 serial

#474 1 year ago

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

#475 1 year 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)
