Quoted from KingPinGames:

i am not sure on this, but i would have no reason to suspect that they were not on.

There was very little evidence of them doing anything other than at hr 1:53+ min mark when lawlor was playing he gets a crazy drain and comments on it.

Quoted from smalltownguy2:

I asked like 6 people standing around me at the afterparty who had all put significant time in on the table, and not one of them could recall the magnets ever influencing the ball path. Maybe we just didn't do something to trigger their use?

I am in the same camp, looking for some kinda answer on them. I disected the streams like a wierdo, only could find one instance of a movement and a single comment. With there being 6 mags on the field I hope there is more to them just than the random seldom movement. I know Lawlor loves mags, was hoping to see some DI type movement.. afraid they are not strong enough or poorly located. Hope it's just a code issue.

Could be deal breaker for me on buying.. I love magnents.

Quoted from bigd1979:

Gameplay differences are only the ball lock but the le comes with a nicer finish and more bling/upgrades

Another question between the SE and LE+ is the ball count. With the LE/CE having the rotating ball lock, how is that gonna work with the multiballs? I guess max is 4 balls in play at a time including add-a-ball. If 2 are always up there I assume 4 are usable in the trough. Might be a difference between the models we don't know about.

Quoted from branlon8:

There‘s mention of a six ball multiball if you qualify all 5 kids then start kid multiball. It‘s mentioned in the TWIP deep dive.

You are correct! So what happens when 2 are in the Wonkavator? Do we have 8 balls installed in the game.. guess we will have to wait and find out.

Quoted from SheriffBarclay:

According to Jack on the podcasts after the reveal, the line should already be changed over, as he said by end of April and games should start shipping shortly.
Couldn't even type that with a straight face. I just hope this will be on the line by mid July.

Double all estimates at the least.. there might be one SE in someones home by mid June.

During the past week or so the JJP Twitch stream has been pulled. Only a handful of 30 sec clips remain.

Maybe the licensor found some footage or things they didn't like about the product..?

ERIC mentioned during the Wonka reveal the CE artwork needed to be approved by the liscense holders and should be ready in about "2 WEEKS".

I have a feeling JJP is laying low to finishing turning these pins from prototypes to finalized products, while gearing up the factory line to produce and ship.

I think we will see "2nd" reveal from them when these pins are ready to actually ship, capitalizing any hype it can stir up again.
