Quoted from delt31:
Why are you getting angry at this guy who bought a product available for sale? Jesus relax. Totally uncalled for. Now you want him to give the game he bought to someone else like he's the pinball robin hood? Seriously?
Oh that's right - he should boycott Alien and not buy it. This way HP gets no money and the folks that decided to pay in full for a pinball machine not even built will definitely get nothing b/c now the company is out of business. I like your logic. Let's stick it to HP....oh wait, you would also be sticking it to the fellow pinsiders as well. Might want to rethink that.
Not angry at all, you might want to relax a little. I think it's BS that people like you jump to the front of the line though. I've got no skin in the game at all and Pinlawyer can risk his money however he wants. Unfortunately Andrew screwed a lot of people and lied constantly. A couple of years ago at TPF he looked me right in the face and said Alien will be shipping in 4 months and tried to talk me into ordering one. I'm glad people took over and are trying to dig out of the whole but not communicating with all of the people that are owed games like iceman44 and attempting to fill new orders is BS and I wouldn't trust them at all.
I completely get that they are broke and new sales may mean they can eventually fill the old ones. That's something they need to be communicating to the people that have been waiting for 4 years though. Those guys shouldn't see you posting about your Alien that you just decided to get with nothing from Heighway when they paid forever ago and are getting nothing but the middle finger.
I'm not saying that is your fault or Pinlayer's fault. Neither of you are doing anything wrong. But you can't be tone deaf to the people that are getting screwed.
