Obo?

So what was that Rarehero said about "pre-orders" being dead?

I guess we'll see. Seems to be people are still soliciting non-refundable money for games that don't exist yet.

This is what pps sent out(in part):

Deposits to reserved your game with PPS:
- $250 for CE/SE
- $1000 for LE
Deposits are fully refundable up to pre-ship notification (which is set to be approx 30 days before game shipment)

That is bargain...i am in!

Is there any reason to rush and place a deposit?

Let them build their machines on their dime.

Quoted from Mike_J:

No reason really, Dealers taking a small deposit on the Special and Classic to know they are serious buyers. The only reason why someone may want to preorder is because they will be first in line to get them. To some people that matters, getting one fast. People that commit to a game will have one placed in their name right way, and it will never go to stock.

I get why people don't want to pay up front (that's a choice), I also understand why dealers do not want to "call it sold" without a small monetary commitment. I expect only a few classics and a few specials out of the gate, so if I tell people I am sold out and send them to buy elsewhere, I want to be sure they are in fact sold.

It is very common to put 5-10% if you want to reserve or hold an item,that seems fair. However, that is clearly the buyers option whether they would like to hold one or not.

I am cool either way!

Maybe a stupid question.... but why the heck does the warranty change on each model purchased . To me thats total BS

I would compare it to buying extended warranty, spend more and get more. Very common now a days. I would consider it a bonus, while the warranty on the classic is similar to standard competitive pin warranties. While the LE has a best ever in the industry warranty.

#10 2 years ago

the LE warranty looks great to me!

IMO who cares. For an added price with the upgraded models you get additional warranty. It's part of the cost for the SE/LE buyer and shows the base buyer that they are getting a game that appears to be high quality considering the low cost of that added warranty amongst the other upgrades.

#12 2 years ago

Any thoughts on how the average build and delivery time?

Maybe they should offer an extended warranty for those who wish to purchase one. If I was going to buy any model it would be the classic, Being able to have the option would be nice

#14 2 years ago

IMO The LE upgrades seem inline with the price even without the extra warranty. But happy to take the extra warranty, I think it's great!

do you think it could make the original AFM price higher than it already be

#16 2 years ago
Quoted from stef34:

History would say the opposite. Look at the case of MMR vs MM. The MMs prior to the release of MMR were going for $15,000. After the release of MMR they are going for $8,000.

Actually there's one pretty significant difference I'm surprised you left out - in this case, the manufacturer requires the deposits from the dealers, who in turn require it from their customers. That's highly unusual, and it's a pretty clear play by the manufacturer to get an influx of cash prior to building.

It's better than FULL pay!

This is exactly what pps states: these deposits are refundable up to ship pre-notification (note 30 days for PPS to refund).

I think the dealer agreement is irrelevant. Regardless, deposits for LEs have been collected since Transformers LE, Stern required deposits on Batman 66 LE. JJP required full payments on games. I have games in stock, those are paid in full. If you want to buy a game there needs to money involved.

Deposits are simply a financial guarantee that your word is good. I would like some sort of commitment from you as a buyer if I am ordering you an $8000 game, with your trim selection etc. Especially on limited run games. I think that is fair. Though I am willing to talk with customers individually and accommodate.

Chicago Gaming has already bought the parts and is soon starting production, I don't think they are looking for cash as much as commitment. Once a dealer pays, the games are theirs, it eliminates cancellations etc.

OK but when you say 8000 it is just a player condition and none a restore one;
so i think that the original restored as brand new will still blow up the market

#21 2 years ago

People put down deposits on houses that aren't built yet. No biggie.

Putting down deposits with a company with no history of production is a different story.

The OP is on the up and up. He's been here a long time. The biggest concern should be he might be a cornhusker fan which shows poor judgement. Noone is perfect.

Yea i saw a fresh off route mm a month ago sell for 7600 and had a ton of interest at that price ...it was rough and needed lots work. Very Nice originals or restored mm with nice mods still sell 9-10k fairly fast and can be much more depending who did the restore. I got lucky (lots people trying to buy it )and was able to snag a restored one with lots of mods few months ago . It was around 1-1500 more than u cld get a nib mmr for.
Mm is different than afm tho due to the different prices between the 2. A nice original afm cld be bought for 6-7 k and restored ones for 8-9500 and up for hep ones. I dont think nice originals will drop much if any. There are different collectors for each and now everyone will get to enjoy this awesome game...

I don't believe that this preorder will cause as much heart burn as the last one that PPS was involved with. Or some others.

But with that disclaimer, a 30 day cut off is "curious" to me at least. Call it what it is but if the producer "misses" their deadline, what is the penalty if any?

As with many other Pinside threads, excuse me if I take this a bit off course. I've noticed that some sellers have different disclaimers. Not huge differences but if I recall correctly, one seller has a no refund once ordered LE stipulation. So may I ask, who are the assorted resellers? I am not asking what pricing but who is selling so I may contact them or look at their web site.

So, $1000 NON REFUNDABLE deposit? And it's so we hold our word to buying? Seems as though this is 99% the other way around, you know, the pinball company not delivering. So, are you going to pay ME or lower the price if you don't deliver?

ordering from pps is refundable deposit, not sure about other sources

I have no issues with deposits whatsoever - I was simply correcting the statement that "Dealers taking a small deposit on the Special and Classic to know they are serious buyers.", since it's actually dealers are taking a small deposit because the manufacturer is requiring it, not because they need to know they are serious buyers. I'm sure the deposit would be smaller than $1k from dealers if it weren't a manufacturer requirement, which is pretty much the norm.

That may be true.

I will work with costumers on an individual basis if they see an issue. It no problem, so if you are interested just give me a shout.

Just curious if the warranty applies to the game being used commercially. 24 months could be appealing to ops.
