Hey Pinside,

With our Addams playfield run moving through The Pipe (and actually leapfrogging over Earthshaker), it's coming a little sooner than we expected. In anticipation of the approaching release, we recently went back into the Addams Inbox and did an updated accounting of the preorders - contrasted with the latest cancellation email counts... it seems we have openings ! And a decent amount. This is good news.

Along with counts of the additional extra insert sets we had via the molding factory counting them by weight rather than actual numbers, we lucked out and had the ability to squeak out a decent percentage more playfields than originally expected (and we made sure we used ALL the inserts up, for darn sure). PPS gave the green light to no problem expanding the run that little bit beyond the original production numbers, since the opportunity was here at the moment. So we did.

All this, balanced with the constantly repeated 30-40% abandonment rate at shipping time shown run after run (seemingly regardless of title) - the numbers tell us that we can confidently take a few dozen more candidates. This is our longest run since TOTAN, and while it's doing really well in numbers relative to the "old titles" ... it is showing cancellation/abandonment stresses on the consumer end similar to what we went through with TOTAN (where we had a 50% abandonment rate at the end - and we killed the second wave of production because of it).

Bottom line - we don't want to go through with a "TOTAN situation" again - so we're re-opening up the Addams list, and taking names. We want all of these Addams to go to homes, and thus we're making sure this run gets the buying base it deserves. We want every one to sell.

If you have already sent an email into the original Addams Inbox or Waiting List link before, and DIDN'T send a follow-up cancellation - you are safe and fine ! No need to send another.

If you had missed out back when the links were open, and want to still get a shot - we'd love to see you in the Inbox. Go to the link above, click the link by the Addams Family playfield run in The Pipe, and slam in an email with your information. We will leave the box open until we get those few dozen extra candidates that we are looking for.

Thanks

Hee hee Actually guys - FYI you don't have to signal your emails sent to me here... I'm seeing them land as you're doing them

In fact, people seeing this has a "frenzy" effect - and will accelerate the appearance of those folks that just decide to send in an email for the "helluvit" and are a higher risk (for us) to be shaky for actual purchase at the end. As you can imagine, we're not looking for fluff or padding of these few dozen slots - we'd like to see serious buyers who join in, and aren't reacting to a frenzy. We got plenty of those the first time

I don't need an Addams, but this is a great announcement to see.

Keep up the good work Kevin.

kevincpr -
Something I've been meaning to ask, but wasn't sure where to. If we want to claim more than one playfield (i.e. Upcoming projects), do you want us to send in two emails? Or will we be given the chance to buy two when we get a shipping announcement?

#11 3 years ago

Sent an email! Haven't heard back yet... geeez!!!

(Just kidding Kevin). Looking forward to seeing these bad boys!

#12 3 years ago

Are these playfields using the "purple gray" or the "bluish gray"?

#13 3 years ago

PM sent, the website isn't loading. Please add me to the list.

#14 3 years ago

I understand the "frenzy effect", makes perfect sense. Like I said, I don't absolutely require one for my machine as it's playfield is in great shape(full factory mylar) but the way I see it is: Whether I decide to swap it out when I get the new one or wait until it really wears down before I swap it, either way, I'm gonna have some great wall art!

Thanks again for keeping us updated!

#15 3 years ago

Sent an email at 1400 EST, got home and checked and my email showed that it did not go through.

I sent another one at 1909 EST, and this time, I verified that it went through. I sure hope I didn't miss out as I would LOVE to have a brand new PF for this game. Thanks, Kevin!

I looked and didn't see it on the website (though I was certain I saw it before) for what you want us to include in the email. I included my name and address. Please let me know if that's what you need to be added to the list. Thanks.

Kevin,
I originally sent email on the original list but never got a return email showing I made the list. I can sign up again but I don't want to be stuck paying for two playfields when I only want one. Any recommendations here? I can find my original email if I need to. Thanks

I didn't receive an email back confirming I'm on the list, so hopefully we both made it. It's still open on the site, so hopefully Kevin is waiting for one or two more.

I'm in, loving the second chance

Do we get the $849 pre-order price?

I never received a response from my original, that was 2014. Good luck to all of us!

#33 3 years ago

Email sent - hopeful to receive a confirm.

Quoted from Pbpins:

I wouldn't think so. Per the image in the first post, you're filling slots on an expanded "leftovers" list, which is priced at $899.

Although perhaps you'll get $799 Bronze pricing. You have to figure the last couple dozen playfields out the door will also be the lowest-graded playfields from the run.
