    Lol, come on now.. I caved and said I'll buy the LZpro with the below tweaks. Everyone here wants it as is? Cool. To each there own.
    "a buddy is making the 4th ramp for fun... Change the back Glass art and bury it in the line up so I don't see the bugs bunny art.. Delete the call outs. Donsky!!" I'll have myself the Led Zeppelin pin that I always wanted.

    or do you pretend that you where on another line listening in and want to say what ive printed is a lie

    You should try reading posts better . I said he was upfront with me .
    How do I know what he said to you , at the time he would have been going off what he was told from JJP .
    Don't get your panties in a knot .

    Quoted from PoMC:

    Boy, did I really have perfect timing. One night, two weeks ago, I posted in a local sale thread asking if anyone had a GNR SE for sale or trade. Didn't really care about the game, just wanted to play it for a few months and then move it along.
    A local Pinsider had one he bought while waiting for his LE. We arranged a straight trade for one of my pins and then a few days later JJP jacked up the price. Perfect timing for me because I would not have been interested in trading for a $7800 GNR which would've cost more than I paid for Wonka and Dialed In.
    Also sounds like the Standard Edition is going to be the real "limited" edition too. Game is really fast and fun, jaw dropping light shows, nice open stage area that I am having fun modding and now working on a pretty sweet topper for it.

    Yup give me an SE all day even if the LE was the same price (resale value aside). They’ve made what, 100 of them? There is a 3000+ LE backlog, which will probably grow to 5k, then they have toy story. When exactly are they going to so another SE run?

    #955 8 months ago

    I really wanted a GNR LE but when they made the announcement with all this backlog this is not serious. I don't want to wait 6 months to a year for something. This is not serious. Yes it's pinball and not essential but give me a break. After big lebowski, aliens and predator fiasco just to name a few I really don't feel confortable with no precise information of when I going to get my pin. I know JJP might be a cie more reliable than the other cies who produced titles who never got delivered but since JJP started years ago the only thing really annoying me is the long wait because they cannot keep up. You can say pandemic all day but it's always been like that in my book.

    You might not believe me but this is the truth.....if I could give the money and get my pin, like cash on the glass I would buy it. Instead they seem like locking customers in with a no reason at all 1k price increase.

    Quoted from Chuckwebster:

    i think they raised prices so that people who placed orders won't bail out. Waiting 6 months to a year is going to be tough with so many other options that will be available sooner. A 1k penalty will be tough to swallow for anyone who does bail out and wants back in later.

    Day 1 order here and in in the US. No game and no guarantees. Soon is as good as I can get.

    Your thoughts about the price increase are pretty good. I remember cancelling Hobbit years ago after being a previous Day WOZECLE order.

    The company was younger at that time and those refunds hurt. Although I think refund requests would be much fewer on GNR (it’s a special game), increasing price does create a sense of value in the existing orders and it costs them nothing.

    Whoa. You paid day 1 and haven't seen your game? Looks like I'm going to be waiting until the end of summer. Crazy

    #972 8 months ago

    I ordered GNR SE about 2 weeks ago and ETA shipping is 1-3 weeks. Sooner than I expected. I hope this is true.

    90% of orders were Day 1. In what order we will never know but Day 1 is just assumed for all outstanding orders for a good long time.

    Why look back?

    GNR is an awesome pinball experience!!!

    I’m so thrilled with my Gorgeous CE words can’t even describe it!

    So many great ways to have fun on this pin

    Distributors take refundable deposits for JJP orders. So mentioning heighway or dutch pinball has no relevance to JJP delivering your game. Distributors buy the games from JJP when they are (almost) ready to go out. They aren't bootstrapping it. Games are going out every week. People are announcing they received their games every day on this site. People pre-order cars, memorabilia statues, and lots of other things that have a much longer timeframe to wait. Updates by distributors have been accurate. The response to this game has been overwhelming and they are ramping up a new factory. The narrative that JJP is 'struggling' is ridiculous. They aren't Stern. Nobody said they are. They do want to have two lines going. It's a process and considering they made the move in 2020 during the pandemic is pretty incredible. Sounds like they are serious to me.

    The price increase was not to 'lock in' current pre-orders.

    One day you can buy a pin that is in stock. You'll just have to wait. Whether you have a $2,000 refundable deposit with a distributor or you keep it so you don't feel tied down is up to you. But the day this game was revealed it was on the production line. That's a huge improvement.

    I don't have a JJP game... All due respect, just think Stern missed with Led Zeppelin. Is that Gary Stern on top of that pile? Looks like him F'ing the Stern fan boys over with his LZ. "Oh ya, you like it.. Don't ya!" Bah-ha!

    I should say that what was missed with LZ can big fixed... Gonna get a nice used pro, new translite... adding the 4th ramp and pinsound. 50, 60 songs and better voice call outs. Bury it in the line up so I don't see the side art

    #991 8 months ago

    I'm not a huge LZ fan, but to me the pin really actually fits LZ theme pretty well. A laid back, non frantic, old style game. Might not be everyones idea of fun, but I find it hard to think anyone has any amazingly different ideas for it. LZ wasn't exactly flashy like GnR, or known for their artstyle like some other bands. Is it overpriced for what you get? Maybe...but LZ license was no way cheap.

    The side art is literally the art from Zep III as I’m sure you know. They really pissed you off with this one I guess.

    Is what it is, leaning towards anything below for my new translite. Now back to GnR which JJP knocked out of the M/F park!
