I put a deposit down today on a Batman 66 Premium with Game Exchange. From the sounds of it, there is one left that is unspoken for. I look forward to officially joining the club when it arrives, hopefully next month. I'm happy to read up on the hot topics. Give me the relevant search words for this game, and I'll get to reading.

Quoted from Goyomex:

Congrats! You'll love BM66! IDK, I'd say start reading the 16,634 posts before yours and you'll get up to speed quickly!

Ha! I did that with Jurassic Park and somewhat with Munsters. I was trying to be more surgical this time around. The game wasn't even really more than a curiosity until I was on a work trip last week and spent an hour playing. What a great game! I thought I was too late to the party to get one that hadn't been routed. Not many HUO for sale that aren't too far to drive. I lucked out that they are building another batch. Now if only CGC will make some more MMR's!

Anyone with a order in on the current batch get a shipping update?

#16675 5 months ago

Bad news for those of us expecting a shipment this month. Got word today from my distributor that Mando has pushed Batman production to July.

Quoted from hool10:

Hey folks I got some questions. So I'm I'm currently debating mentally if I should buy the new GnR or my favorite game of all time, Batman '66. I know the last run is this July so I'm likely going to make up my mind this weekend. It would also be my first NIB.
What problems are usually found on a BM '66 or in general how well does it hold up?
I really like the Julie Newmar art package and did they limit that run to only 100 ever made?
Thanks and I hope to join the club potentially this weekend!

When I paid my deposit at Game Exchange, they only had two of their four slots available. I'd decide quick. Call for the best deal. Rob Thomas helped me: 303-962-4655

I think there are going to be plenty of G n R's on the used market. Not many BM66's come up.

Quoted from SkillshotExhibit:

Yes I very gently pulled the outer wire ( the one closest to the cabinet wall ) upwards. It works well now.
Know anything about how to adjust the slingshot coil power? The seem way too strong.

This is typically in, "Feature adjustments." I don't have my BM66 yet, so I can't look directly. But that is where it is on my AIQ.

Quoted from Nate1979:

First post on pinside
Just got into the hobby and learning. First game was AIQ pro NIB. Decided I want an Elvira HOH and Batman 66. Realized I chose two hard to find titles.
So far the 3 distributors I have called for the last run of Batman 66 have none that aren’t spoken for.
Can anyone give me an idea of who to contact?
Would posting a wanted add for a NIB game be the best route? Do distributors look at those?
Thanks for the help.

I second the suggestion for calling Game Exchange, I have one on order from them. There is one in the classifieds for 8k. I'd suggest checking that out and making an offer. After making the deposit on mine, two have popped up within driving distance. Be patient, and you will find both games. If you add games to your wishlist, you can very quickly check daily only for ads on your wishlist

Quoted from rai:

I’m thinking about buying a BM66 as they are doing a small run soon.
It’s funny tho was thinking about a newer pin even Halloween or Ultraman but often the new pins are a big crap shoot.
My last two purchases were older titles SW and JP both had been out years by the time I picked them up and I’m so happy.
Thinking with the killer code that BM66 will really be what I’m looking for in my next purchase.

Game Exchange might have one slot left. Spoken for everywhere else that I checked.

Quoted from RDReynolds:

Have a friend looking for a B66 Premium or Catwoman in the Denver area...does anyone know a good dealer I could point him to if they are doing a new run as rumored?

Game Exchange is your best bet. Last I heard they were all spoken for, but they had the most slots of any distributor I checked with. Maybe they have an extra, or a cancelation.

Any word on the May, errrrr, July, errrrr, August builds? I know a bunch of JP's went out this week.

#16799 67 days ago
Quoted from rai:

Just got word the ‘August’ build had been pushed back to Q4.

Bummer. That is a vague timetable.

Quoted from planters49:

I just got an update from my distributor, looking like December now.

Of what year? I get that supply chain issues abound. But now we are coming up on the second game release after the delay of a known game that people have deposits on. At some point, don't you prioritize finishing the products of existing customers rather than diverting resources to products targeted toward future customers?

Quoted from cscmtp:

I think this would make a cool topper, but a little pricey [quoted image]

What is that marketed as? Have a link?

Quoted from chewiec:

Anyone know of the odds that the last run will be available in December? It’s been a year and with the backlog and supply shortages I have a feeling it will be delayed again. I sure hope I’m wrong!

The last conversation I had with my distributor said that BM66 was to be made this month. I heard from someone else that it is December now. It has gotten to the point that I'll believe it when I see it. I wouldn't have as much heartburn about it if they didn't keep putting games that didn't exist when I ordered on the line in front of machines that are already sold with deposits on them.

#16880 3 days ago
Quoted from Rob_G:

Is BM66 still in demand? I imagine there must be orders, but popularity of this game seemed to really wane after 1.0 was released. This thread used to be so lively before.

There is enough demand that they announced a small run this past spring. They were supposed to be built in May. They are all spoken for already.
