The Depp version...is not Wonka... if they do that.... FAIL!!!

#352 7 months ago

In?...maybe....

#353 7 months ago

Here is the problem with JJP, I thought for sure I would be in on a WOZ CE because DUH who wouldn’t want the ULTIMATE version of Woz, then JJP announces YBR and OMG I had to email the distro and tell him to return my deposit as WTF is JJP removing the monkey for!

So, am I IN on WONKA? YES, but that could change after the reveal...

I'm out if Wonka has a monkey!

#355 7 months ago

What if wonka has a mechanical squirrel that picks up and carries off the ball.

My head just exploded.

#356 7 months ago

I think I am in for a CE #12 -- But What do I know....

I am texting Joe @ 3 to see if there is ANY chance that this time MAYBE there could be a Powder Coated Coin Door for the CE Owners -- or a coin door that dispenses jelly beans.

Either way I would be happy

I'm definitely IN for WONKA unless in the most unlikely scenario the game is poorly received. I can't see that happening in view of JJP's past successes and what appears to be the most spectacularly glowing pre-order response of any machine yet produced by the reigning build quality champions of pinball. However as I have only recently purchased MMR, AFMR LE, WOO Emerald and in weeks MBR LE I can't negotiate the expected 9,500 price tag for another year. So I will play it on location until that time. I am assuming that the machines will not be physically available until maybe October of this year, despite promises to ship within a few months (which I don't see as realistic all things considered). There is no game I would ever want more than WONKA and I've requested it repeatedly on many threads dating back a few years.

I'm willing to bet they start shipping in May.

They're having some sort of media tour of Wonka at 11 in the factory...curious to see if anything leaks.

Yeah heard something about that as well. I don't believe JJP has ever done something like that with a game before so it's cool to see they are trying a new strategy to increase marketing of a new game. Also must mean they are feeling very confident about the game performing well!

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Hmmmmm "f3honda4me" my friend, you are really throwing me a curve ball there, though mind you a very appealing one. Shall I or shall I not? Do I fork over the 8K for the MBR LE in two weeks or do I hold on to it pending the reveal and shipping plans on WW? (thus holding off on the MBR LE until next year when it will still be very very easy to obtain as were the past two CGCs which are STILL available). I think you have succeeded (though not your intent of course) in having me put a HOLD on the MBR LE until I know how the WW scenario unfolds and what the reception is regarding the machine (expected to be rapturous). S so difficult to decide with WW, MBR LE and PIRATES all for the taking! Thank you!

#363 7 months ago

Need to hear and see this during the reveal

As someone who wants to add another pin in the next couple months, I am putting my money on Wonka delivering. All signs point to JJP doing everything to get this game shipping quickly after reveal. I think they are taking a page out of Stern's book in this regard, and it's a great decision.

My friend, I have no reason to dispute what you are saying nor even to be mildly skeptical. I am assuming the reveal is only a few days away to boot.

All signs say the reveal will be april 12 7pm at MGC in Milwaukee.

i would say that if you have 2 weeks until you have to pay for MBr LE, then you have plenty of time to see the reveal and decide on what you want. Games will be shipping soon after the reveal, but that doesn't mean that yours has to. If you would like to discuss more (about moving payment out, not about the next game), let me know. We are very accommodating to our customers.

If it's Gene Wilder Wonka then I'm in and I'm so ready.

#372 7 months ago

I don't particularly care for a Willy Wonka theme on a pin. Don't know why. I liked the Gene Wilder movie a lot as a kid. The Depp version was... well, the movie was okay, but I don't like Depp (this is why my PotC missing Depp movie clips wasn't so bad, really).

It's just not a theme I really see working well in a pin. But hey, I'm 100% open to being proven wrong and still very excited to see what they reveal. And Toy Story *is* something that I think has great pin potential.

#373 7 months ago

When did it all become about Wonka? In my day it was called Charlie and the Chocolate Factory.

I'm 52 and have never heard it called Charlie and the Chocolate factory over Willy Wonka until the remake.

#375 7 months ago

So how long do you think a person has to purchase a game, I know I want a "LE' because it has X+Y in it and once your in for 8 why not 9? but I only have half of the funds raised, thinking another 4 months before I have all of it... or will I get boxed out?

An LE would be available the CE is what would sell out. If only 250 are being made, that should actually sell out, if the game is what we all hope it is.

Can we stop saying this? There's only one Willy Wonka.

Charlie and the Chocolate Factory is a different film. If it was called that, then you can worry.

for us, we take a small deposit if you want to go out further. once the game is almost ready to ship, then we ask for final payment. if at that time you are not ready, then we will hold it for a bit longer.

A person on the inside has come up with this highly detailed Microsoft Paint 1999 mock up of the game. Seems like there's a large boat toy from the chocolate river scene in the game that allows the player to lock different colored balls into the paddles of it, a "Candy" mini playfield in the upper left, and a large spinning "WONKA" bar in the middle. Only a left flipper on the bottom of the playfield as well, a first in pinball. Hmmmm?

lol jk

The book yes. The movie no..

Book: Charlie and the Chocolate Factory (by Roald Dahl) (1964)
Movie: Willy Wonka & the Chocolate Factory (by Roald Dahl & David Seltzer) (1971)

The game is 110% no question no doubt about it Gene Wilder. Jack himself told me that. Hopefully that debate ends. I will tell you this, I like the Depp movie, I like the backstory, and Depp was amazing as Willy Wonka.

With that being said that film is NOT a classic, Gene Wilder is and always will be Willy Wonka and that is not to take away from Depp.

Wonka is Gene Wilder and any pinball game should be based on Gene Wilder just like anything else licensed from that franchise.

Gene Wilder will always be known for his many amazing films like Blazing Saddles, Stir Crazy, Young Frankenstein which would also make a cool pinball... but his legacy is Willy Wonka.

Depp's legacy is Captain Jack.

Charlie and the Great Glass Elevator was mandatory reading for me in grade 4, never read Charlie and the Chocolate Factory

Yes I'm sure Jack personally told you details about a game, not to mention confirm the game, that has not yet been revealed but everyone else they make people sign NDA's for.

That is a 110% FACT

#387 7 months ago

Anyone else a roller coaster fan? I feel like Wonka is a well guarded secret like a new Cedar Fair roller coaster. With equal speculation.

I’m really on the fence about buying a Wonka vs. a used WOZ. Part of me wants to buy NIB just to support JJ....

I thought his legacy was that Wonky character Gilbert Grape

So he broke his NDA and JJP will let him order before everyone else?

#396 7 months ago

Hahahaha. After the 100% aliens and 100% confirmed big lebowski scandals, it amazes me that not only do people still listen, but they still believe what he says.

For the love of God, stop complaining. And he didn't give anything away that they didn't allow him to give away.

easy - he got ahead of himself and it's b/c he loves this hobby so much and was excited. Even though he said rumors, he took it too far. He already apologized. Move on.

He's the best at what his does. Period.
