Golden token rolling down the glass like in Safecracker...right?

#52 5 months ago
Quoted from Guinnesstime:

As long as it's not a Dialed In re-skin, I'm ready to consider this.

I'm not as far along as you but I am considering being ready to consider this as my next NIB purchase.

#53 5 months ago

I got my name on a list. I'll play the pin at MGC and if it's good, I'm in!

#54 5 months ago

I would like to get a Wonka pin, but if the new woz cost 11500, I think this game will cost at least the same if not more. At these prices I cannot afford buying new games anymore. It seems like everyone on pinside is either rich, or are taking out loans to buy these games.

#55 5 months ago

I've never bought a NIB pin. I may buy one now.

#genewilderorgtfo

#56 5 months ago

Definitely in, JJP hasn't let me down yet. Just hope the pricing doesn't go further north.

#57 5 months ago

In with Flipnoutpinball to complete (for now) our JJP lineup. Cool theme and many fun possibilities.

#58 5 months ago

Hmmm, this could be cool. Plus 1000 on the Wilder version being the way to go. Or, I could also live with something totally unrelated to the movies. In any event, cool theme! I can see lots of great ramps, toys, etc.

#59 5 months ago
Quoted from JodyG:

How can you be in on a game without even seeing it?

New here?

That being said I'm in on Toy Story just based on rumor alone. And the Matrix if anybody ever gets around to making it. Hopefully another jjp title

I was told same pricing as pirates

Quoted from Butch2099:

Wish it would come down a hair , but I can stomach that. Another vote for not a Dialed In! re-skin, I love Dialed In! the way it is.

#62 5 months ago

Hell no no Wonka for me Toy Story!!

#63 5 months ago

I will almost assuredly be pre-ordering a Wonka LE, just waiting for two things: 1) the PF design, but if it's Lawlor as assumed I'm 100% sure I'll enjoy it; and 2) Depp v. Wilder But I think a JJP Wonka could be the best match of company/license ever. It makes so much sense. The more I play all of the JJP games, the more I realize I'd be happy with nothing but JJP games at home, since I'm already lucky enough to have Dialed In and Pirates.

I'm psyched!!!!

#64 5 months ago

I have no idea, I need to see how this pans out. Need to see it in person and evaluate when the cost is published.

I will not preorder in any event and I really have no strong feelings about the theme, but like PL a lot. I hope it works out for JJP. I have DI and love it.

#65 5 months ago

I *want* to be in for an LE, but I need to see this thing, and get a real feel for the playfield flow. I'm guessing a lot of pre-orders will happen, once we see it, though...unless the price continues to rise...

Quoted from smalltownguy2:

#genewilderorgtfo

Might be my first NIB pin also. My wife and daughter already said I had to sell enough games to get it.
If it’s fun to shoot and intergrades the theme well. I won’t be able to pass.

#67 5 months ago

I hear a lot of “pre order” talk ... hopefully it will be “Here it it and it’s ready to ship!”

#68 5 months ago

Why in the hell would they do a reskin? Or a Depp version for that matter.

Because sh*t happens.

#70 5 months ago

So true,but that shit ain’t happening

#71 5 months ago

There's a 99 and 44/100% chance I'd prefer a Wilder over a Depp version. I'm a Depp fan too. Rango anyone?

#72 5 months ago

Rango was a cool movie,we named our very green Quaker parrot after Rango.

#73 5 months ago

It's weird that Stern released BK3 so soon after Munsters.

This game must be good and they wanted to draw more collectors $$ for BK3 before this game/theme comes out. For them to do it at the risk of cannibalizing Munsters sales I think is significant.

Quoted from drfrightner:

I can't wait to see what MOD COUPLE come up with in terms of mods for the game. It seems like Mod Couple is all over every JJP game.

I like how some people's first instinct is "how can I spend MORE money on a $10k game that should have everything in the game already".

#75 5 months ago
Quoted from Guinnesstime:

Because sh*t happens.

And because they talked about doing that with Toy Story!

Quickly shot down as one of the dumbest ideas ever

Reskin DI to TS

#76 5 months ago
Quoted from dirtbag66:

Then GnR will get revealed at Expo which is right in my backyard!

The Data East GNR really grew on me ... I recently played one with a Pinsound. All I have to say is "WOW" ... it made the game SOOOOOO much better . I didn't expect the sound to be *that* big of a factor .

I can't wait to see what JJP does with the license .

#77 5 months ago
Quoted from mzhulk:

but if the new woz cost 11500, I think this game will cost at least the same if not more.

That price is usually for the "Collector Edition" pins which are JJP's "LE". JJP does have LEs with more features than their base model, and their base models are pretty much the same as their LEs and CEs gameplay-wise ... you won't run into any major differences that you might encounter with a Stern Premium/LE vs Pro.

No reskins please, not at these prices. For today's NIB prices games should be an original design as that's part of the cost.

#79 5 months ago
Quoted from Beez:

Who in their right mind would preorder a Jjp game? You have to wait a year for the release while Jjp tries to figure out how to make the game actually functional and takes away key features.

#80 5 months ago

It's Wilder. No need to speculate on that one. Like WOZ, it's a whimsical nostalgia-passed-on-for-generations movie. Depp Wonka is divisive and even those who like it don't care enough to buy a pin based on it.

Not this time. More like a few weeks after reveal/announcement.

Quoted from WyseGuy:

Fingers crossed for a model under 10k

This hobby might be the best example of "slow boil a frog on a skillet" I have ever seen.

7 years ago, we would have lost our shit. Now, we are hoping for under $10K......

I hope you’re right. It’s hard to get excited about a release when it’s a year out.

Regardless of how you feel about the actors or the emotional impact on your psyche; the Tim Burton Wonka is truer to the story as written by the super creepy Roald Dahl and in every way visually superior to the 1971 movie directed by Mel Stuart.

Will JJP release a Chocolate Free LE for $6k more?

JJP's new tagline should be 'Less Is More ($)'.

Well, you can't have "chocolate-free" Wonka, but perhaps...sugar-free?

Aside from the daddy-flashbacks and that stupid flag museum gag - I like the Tim Burton one a lot, and love the Danny Elfman music (based off of Dahl's poems in the book) ....but for most movie fans, 70's Wonka is what they know and love.

#90 5 months ago
Quoted from pinlawyer:

Ha! If they do the Depp one, I’m in. LOVE Deep Roy and the Boingo music!!

It’s Wonka ‘71 Greg. There is NO other.

If JJP brings the magic and prices this one normally, I'm in too.

Quoted from whitey:

I heard Toy Story ?

Toy Story or Wonka would be on my radar. I’m selling my Tron (with right to buy back) so I’ll have a spot open, was looking at BK SoR but also next JJP pin.

I really have been looking at the JJP PotC videos and as much as it looks cool with so many rules going on and loads of shots. I’m not sure how I feel abou the shoot the floating head playfield.

Pinsiders obsession with old and retold movie themes is so weird to me. But I get the “themes draw to the money making device” but I refuse to accept this as absolute truth.

Oompa Loompa gimmie a break. My wife would medically die from embarrassment if I brought a Wonka themed pinball machine into the house (says the owner of a sttng .

The Oompa Loompa drop target banks are going to be killer!

That’s pretty funny, especially if there was a user violence and gore setting to hear the splats as the oompas get mowed by a giant silver ball.

You REALLY need to play POTC rai. As has been said by others - in a home environment, it's like crack. I think your "shoot the floating head playfield" concerns will quickly disappear.

#99 5 months ago

Id like to see an oompa Loompa mode with that girl (whats her face) who blows up and turns blue. The full rgb gi can shift to blue and you have to hit specific targets to squeeze the juice out of her (that's what the movie says anyway.) And then another mode with Charlie and his grandpa floating up to the ceiling fan. Every correct target you hit "burps" as you try to get them safely to the ground. I hope they flash those creepy ass scenes with the chickens head cut off and the weird shit in the tunnel. I hope it comes without nuts cuz Im allergic.

#100 5 months ago

I hope it's a standard body. Kinda over all the wide body layouts they've put out.
