Quoted from athens95:

Great news, can’t wait for the update.
I was in line for the Gene Cunningham kingpin a little over 10 years back. People that bought the BBB were able to sign up. Anyway, I have been going through my old files and found the original Gene sign up sheet for kingpin. Haha, just some history here. As we know, this game never got built back then. I have a spot picked out in my game room for the new version.
I am number 158 and no chance I will back out on this pin.
[quoted image]

Found one of those sign up sheets from Gene as well. He kept saying something about, “When pigs will fly..” Gene had a bunch of stuff everywhere and I was kinda skeptical, but I was willing to see what could become of it all.
Wish production and tech information from the Circus Maximus team regarding Kingpin was monthly with pics, but I’m sure they have a bunch of other things going on and can get sidetracked.

Hoping to purchase Kingin in 2019.

Anybody ever get an update a yet?

#403 11 days ago

Not really. No Pricing, No ETA, No monthly update.
Radio Silence is not causing the best feeling, I learned while waiting for Predator. But here we all can be relaxed, that's the huge difference.

Anxiously awaiting news ..

Not sure I really agree with the "radio silence" comment as I've been pretty active in this thread. Ten days ago I confirmed our trip in December to Chicago was Kingpin related. But I agree there hasn't been an official update email sent recently.

I'm sure you can all appreciate that while we are discussing agreements with potential manufacturing partners that we can't really give a whole lot of details until things are signed. And we'd rather not just send out a newsletter with mostly just an announcement of some new swag or something.

We are still moving everything forward towards the goal line. Recent progress:

1) Kingpin trademark becoming a Circus Maximus property. This was part of our agreement with PPS and we are awaiting final paperwork to move through the trademark office.
2) Working on getting more ramps pulled off the original thermoforming tooling for the Kingpin ramps (remember we own that tool) and creating a CNC fixture for processing those ramps.
3) Building additional prototype games has begun.

Believe me, I'd love to shout from the mountain some of the stuff we are working on, but sometimes it's just not possible or responsible to do so.

It'd be cool to hear about the progress on 2.0, though no specifics need to be divulged.

Don't need to necessarily talk about the hush hush contractual stuff.

Personally, I hope AP get the contract. Regardless of what you think of their games, they make very solid products at a competitive price and give first class support. I also talked to someone who's visited their existing facilities, and seen photos of the new one ... they seemed pretty confident it was going to be a big step up.

Literally, just back one page.

Quoted from pkiefert:

We will be at TPF again this year, so you will have a chance to play at least one.

Is compy / jimmy still on the Kingpin pinball project?
I swear after playing his restored Wizard Blocks last TPF, he knows what’s up in pinball and how to get things done.
Really enjoyed that Wizard Blocks. Thx.

Absolutely. He's a key part of this three ring circus we call Circus Maximus.
