Thanks for the update. So excited to get my AFMrLE. Look forward to more pics of completed games and games actually going out the door... good times!

Quoted from SuperPinball:

I wish there was an option for the LE buyers to have no mirror blades on the sides. I prefer decals myself or even those sweet looking pingrafix powerblades.

The mirror blades do look pretty sweet on AFMr but I do like the idea of having options (I am also a decal or powerblade guy) but factory options is more Spooky pinball style but they are putting out 300 games a year so I think the efficient and high quality production line should rule all. If that means everyone gets mirror blades - works for me.

Quoted from CGC_DougS:

Very much appreciate the nice comments. We are super busy at CGC and I don't have a lot of time to spend on Pinside, but will promise to continue to share information when it is meaningful. In fact, I hope to deliver some new news within the next few days.

I know you are busy but really looking forward to "new news". Anything news to deliver yet?

Quoted from Zennmaster:

Oh, MAN do I hate to bring this up:
Is there any way to tell if the AFMr LE that I ordered through my local distributor is going to be part of that first 500, or if I should plan on waiting until after the MMrs get built?

Not sure you will get an answer but I would suggest talking to your distributor. Most have likely been promised part of their share of LEs. They should know how many total and can likely expect half of them in the first run since half (500 of 1000) are being made.

Now that is super basic math with no knowledge at all of how the process will work. Gotta think your distributor has the answer. I have all the info I need from my dist. and can not wait!!

Quoted from Deadpin:

Actually, I think that's not quite what Doug said:

So 500 *TOTAL* AFM, some percentage of which are Special Edition.... then back to MMR

Yes I said my math is likely not an exact science so please reduce the number of 500 by how many dealers worldwide...50? 100? You are left with 400-450 then. So my comment still stands... talk to your distributor.

I have to say being in on this LE all
I feel is confidence in the game, quality and special features/value as an LE purchaser. On the fence with my SWLE and feeling no love as an LE purchaser there. When are the LEs gonna start rolling?? So excited!

Hey Doug - any comments or amendments with regards to the unboxing and the hole protector looking to be too low or was this likely just a "one" off issue?

Quoted from pinballinreno:

Once you go black... etc....
I also ordered black.

This game is going to be a pride and joy in my collection. Black side rails are just so - stern pro -ish. I can't imagine such ordinary for such a unique and extraordinary game.

I mean the game will be awesome either way but why take away a feature so "special and limited"? Aren't black rails available anywhere including on every Stern pro

Quoted from Arcade:

Keith Elwin is posting on Facebook how he can't hit any of his shots on this remake.
Saying it "Plays like video pinball".
And that it's "Definite Latency"

"Play better". Lol.

WOW just inboxed LE #90 (more posted in unboxing thread) and I must say in my many years of collecting and my many NIB machine opening experiences this one takes the cake!!! AMAZING. What a quality machine and what attention to detail. Way to go CGC. I did. It play or even see this game in person before now... only photos. It is so much more than what I was expecting. The topper is unlike anything I have ever seen and the game just blows me away. I will post more in the unboxing thread but wanted to post this to let CGC know what a work of art they have created.

I have had an outstanding service and quality experience with CGC. There was a minor issue and it was dealt with quickly. I purposely did not post pics or details on the forum for fear of others that may try to use the same pics dishonestly against CGC. Sucks if that did happen.

I would hope that anyone with a gripe would deal directly with the manufacturer before airing it out publically on a forum. However I know that often those who are weak or spineless prefer to hide behind a forum with questionable tactics rather than pick up the phone and get things dealt with for real.

So number 3 is off then? Shut down and cancelled because of this forum? Wow - that’s impact.

PS. My MB is no longer for sale.
