Quoted from Dkjimbo:
Leaked grainy photo leak of topper = CGC rushes to post actual better pics of said topper to avoid more PR fallout over the delays and lack of transparency.
Someone go ahead and leak the playfield images already so we can cut to the chase here and get the release of the actual remake playfield straight from the source!
TRUTH! All CGC keeps doing is responding to pinside posts(leaks) which only fuels people more. They have botched this release in a way they can't even understand.
The pinball market has cooled off substantially since this was semi-confirmed a long time ago: $1850 for a players Earthshaker sitting for days, Houdini selling for <$6300 6 months after release, IMDN pre going for <$6800, project pins at 1/2 their fully working price just sitting, ACDC Luci vaults sitting at <$6700.
I absolutely love MB. Hands down, my favorite pin ever. I regretted listing mine for sale, I regretted selling it BUT it was too much money to have tied up in 1 pin.
After seeing the AFMr topper, the MBr topper is useless.
Thanks asswipe who posted pics and people who broke their NDA to confirm it. You've ruined it for future folks but, CGC did this to themselves. SOMETHING happened, and delayed this pin to the point that NOTHING will ever be good enough because everyone hyped it to: dancing/spinning/amazing fully functioning robot topper + brand new code (w/ old code selectable) + doing a wood "planked" version + Frank becomes a unicorn and shoots rainbows out his butt + whatever else some stupid podcast mentioned that pinside took as gospel.
