    I think the OP summed it up best

    Quoted from turbo2nr:

    I think the pinball community has gone full-mental this year?
    Defies logic and reason 100%

    Quoted from Damonator:

    I hope Spooky figures out who this is and cancels the order. Or at a minimum moves his game # to dead last.
    JJP instituted a rule that says your game has to ship to the address on the order to stop this kind of junk. Maybe Spooky should do that as well.

    No that was me on GNR CE after the debacle on that - don’t give JJP credit for my creativity in trying to protect the community from flipping ! Lol. That was different though given we had to cancel games and do the pinball version of Sophie’s Choice so I took a stand. We had a few guys say they were sending to their vacation home in Florida and I said no. Damn near asked for a copy of the deed. Carry on good people of pinball !

    too bad you cant stop stern LE flipping so people who are not on some distributors good ole boy list could actually get one instead of the same people getting carte blanche access to every new title and buying just to flip or getting multiple so they can keep one and flip the other.

    #57 3 months ago

    Sorry to bump this...I have no dog in the fight here but if Spooky had no refund deposits would a place flipper be hamstrung? Hate to see that happen if that's the only way to stop it. It might however, make someone like the OP take delivery before flipping it. As an aside, there are people who buy event tickets to events that are 1000 miles away with no intent on attending, just marking up the ticket for resale. It's sad but prevalent as we all can see.

    To the OP thanks for making this a forum topic! Now back to Our regularly scheduled programming...

    I'm more annoyed at the balls it takes to sell your spot, when no one one even has a build number yet!

    This CE could be the last one, or the 51st one. No one's gonna jump on this if they don't know how far back in the line that they'll be. Doesn't make a lot of sense to sell until the build order is finalized. The OP could at least say when their order went through, that would give some idea of build slot then.

    Would consider trading for a Tickle Me Elmo? I had to pry it from the hands of a crying child in 1996, but I'll do what it takes to make a quick buck. I also have some pogs or tickets to a Justin Bieber concert from 2012. Let me know if we can work out a deal.

    PS: I'm sure this is just the first of many.

    #67 3 months ago

    A schmuck doesn’t even wait for the “build number”. Speaking of which …..

    Makes me so glad I ordered Ultraman from you, Joe! Whatever I’m buying, I do everything I can to direct business to vendors who are good community members.

    Quoted from lpeters82:

    Would you consider trading for a Tickle Me Elmo? I had to pry it from the hands of a crying child in 1996, so I think it's worth more, but I'm willing to swap straight up.

    Dammit a Tickle me Elmo ? To think I had like hundreds of these games and sold them at cost. Did you at least wash him after you were done ?

    We just had a customer turn a Halloween CE back in who double ordered with us and Spooky in the reveal day Spooky website confusion. And he gave it back so someone who wants the game could have it. Didn’t ask for $ or even a Tickle Me Elmo ! There are a lot of good folks around… it went to someone on our wait list. Brings a tear to the eye…

    #72 3 months ago

    But who doesn't want to meet him in person, just to take a selfie! Oh wait, you are buying spot...

    That's awesome but I would have still tried for that Tickle me Elmo providing there was no battery acid damage.

    It often gets harder to change the minds of people who say Pinside sucks and they ignore it.

    And then we get reminded there is a lot of good here and in pinball.

    Thank you Joe and customer !

    I think that was me, right Joe? Unless there was someone else that was frustrated on the sale day and mistakenly ordered one from you and Spooky at the same time

    Why buy this when you can have it for MSRP on Facebook. Dave Peck in Carolina arcade and pinball collectors is selling his spot at cost.

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    What's shipping cost from Canads?
    Nitro is Canada right?

    Games do not ship from Canada for US Customers. We have a warehouse in Washington State. However, If you're outside our region... we will drop ship your pin from Spooky.

    I'm really not trying to pile on, but you had to see this coming. You ordered three editions of the same limited run game and listed two of them for sale at a markup within a week.

    Op must've not read the terms on spooky's website where it said the deposits are not transferable.

    Quoted from Palmer:

    He needs the extra cash for wrist reduction surgery. Way to be insensitive!

    Says the guy who asked more money than he paid for his used GNR, POTC, and others. Ha!

    I use to race Moto-x and have broken both arms multiple times. They look normal to me. ?

    Ok buddy!

    How self-conscious are you that you felt the need to post a picture of your wrist to prove your wrist is normal sized to a random dude on Pinside? If you're gonna do something shitty expect people to call you out on it and own it if you think you're in the right

    #86 3 months ago

    Of course this price will only go up.
    What about it?

    Game play video hasn't been released yet.
    Same thing with Rick and Morty.

    No surprise. Same with Mandalorian and many others. That's the way it goes.
