.. I was told 30 days from today for my GB Premium.

#202 3 years ago

In case anyone interested in GB Premium information missed my pictures from the other thread, here they are. The machine was at the Arcade, Video and Game Room Expo in Rosemont, IL this past weekend. It looked and played great.

I heard they are shipping the 12th

#204 3 years ago

My premium was shipped early this week. It takes ca 4 weeks until it arrives in Oslo, Norway.

I think Elon Musk is working on it.

Emailed Trent today and he confirmed that domestic Premiums should start shipping the week of September 12th.

#208 3 years ago
Quoted from Fortytwo:

I beleive during the tron run they had some USA machines made with one slot.

Yes, the LE's all had the single slot coin doors. For around $100, they would send you the correct two slot. Done to save money, but it was not received well by the community. I didn't bother so my Tron looks "different"

#209 3 years ago
Quoted from delt31:

Any specific reason?

Old industry habits ? Many companies shipped to Europe then US, so games would land in both places about the same time.

^ I see ghosting in his ball sack area and his hands need to be LED'd.

#212 3 years ago

So excited. Hope my game arrives in good shape and no issues. Can't wait to finally play one.

#213 3 years ago
Quoted from stpcore:

I checked with Trent in the last hour. He said PRODUCTION starts on the 12th.

Still.....some progress.

#214 3 years ago

I can confirm - PRODUCTION starts 9/12 (spoke to Trent as well.)

#215 3 years ago

Must have been a misunderstanding as I asked for a "shipping eta" and he said "Domestic Premiums will start the week of the 12th". I never asked about production dates and he didn't specify production in his return email so I assumed he was answering my shipping question. Sorry for any confusion I may have caused.

#216 3 years ago

Why can't it be both? It doesn't take a week to build a pinball machine. I can see them starting on the 12th and shipping them in the same week.

It can be, but no games are going to ship on the 12th.

#218 3 years ago

Can we agree to mid September?

#219 3 years ago

I'm having a party on 10/1, so I'm REALLY hoping I have mine by then.

Same here. Hosting a tournament/Party on 10/9

Quoted from Air_Pinball:

Why have we already seen new premiums already shipped and received then? Test run?

Quoted from Air_Pinball:

Never said they would.

Quoted from stpcore:

Quoted from Arcade:

"Week of the 12th" means some time during the week that starts on the 12th. So, production starts on the 12th, shipping can still happen on week of the 12th. Mid September is the 15th, which is in the week of the 12th, so we all could be right!

#223 3 years ago

I was told by someone who was physically at stern that the us machines were being built as or either wed or thur and would start shipping on or about 12th. Whether or not it was BS I have no idea, just relaying what I was told.

#224 3 years ago
Quoted from JimB:

Those were the international shipments. They had one coin mech in the video on Stern's Facebook video.

#225 3 years ago

Didn't some of the LE models in the US ship with only one coin mech?

#226 3 years ago
Quoted from Air_Pinball:

Those were the international shipments. They had one coin mech in the video on Stern's Facebook video.

The one at the Arcade, Video and Game Room Expo last weekend in Rosemont was a domestic machine.

#227 3 years ago

That's what I was referring to above, there were US ones already posted.

#228 3 years ago

Well, yes, there were a few demo units. I saw one on YouTube almost two months ago.

None of that is helping us though.

#229 3 years ago

I heard the same 9/12 they start hitting the line for domestic

#230 3 years ago

I wonder how many domestic Premiums are in the queue and how long it might take to fill those initial preorders?

#231 3 years ago

A lot less then before the ghosting that's for sure.

#232 3 years ago
Quoted from MinusWorlds:

This is part of the problem. The only real voice you have is not accepting a sub-par product. When the numbers start racking up with people not accepting the pins MAYBE Stern will do something. I'm calling my distro and requesting a cancellation.

Noticed you ordered Art's Airball Plastic for GB today. So I guess you decided against canceling your Premium and have decided to join me as part of the problem?

Hahaha. I already ordered like $300 in mods that I'm just sitting on. I did talk to my distro today and he's confident that the issues have been resolved. So there's that...

#237 3 years ago

Yeah I talked with my distro and they said they were shipping so I guess he's right!

#238 3 years ago

I'm sure this varies but is there any general rule with distributors when it comes to order fulfillment? For instance does it go in order of preorder down payment, paid in full, new customers versus repeat customers, etc? Who gets their pin first?

#239 3 years ago
Quoted from Tech257:

OK I'll be the first one....how do the inserts look? Any manufacture date on the side of the playfield?

#240 3 years ago
Quoted from Tech257:

What's the build date of the machine and the playfield?

#241 3 years ago

So much for the not starting Premiums until the 12th

#242 3 years ago

Amen and pass the taters, we've waited long enough.

There is with mine.
Paid in full before the game was officially announced and I am #3 in line at my distributor.
Was also chatting with someone on my live pinball stream who said they had already got a Premium as well.
Guess the really are shipping.
