How can you be in on a game without even seeing it?
Quoted from f3honda4me:
If you do find a deal, it might be something like free shipping or maybe $100 off or something small. JJP pins have relatively strict pricing agreements. I'd go with any reputable distributor. Zach at Flip N out or Chris at Kingpin are two excellent choices in my personal experience. Chris helped me out on a game I didn't even buy from him, and Zach got hold of the manufacturer on my behalf for a minor issue I had on a pin I bought from him, which got me a new part 2 days later in the mail. Distributor choices matter most AFTER the sale.
Its not that they are strict about pricing as much as there is less distributor margin on JJP games from what I understand.
Well, Kaneda played it, and said is basically blow your dick off good. He ordered a CE on the spot.
Quoted from PinJim:
Pardon my ignorance, but who is Kaneda? See him mentioned often...
Listen to Episode 334: "Well, I Played Wonka" by KanedaPinball #np on #SoundCloud
I'm kinda excited what the camera feature is... Call me corny, but I love the camera integration in Dialed in. I hope Jack has to make machines 24/7 the rest of the year to keep up with demand.
Quoted from KingBW:
Maybe ... Maybe not. Pirates was unexpectedly limited. We'll see what is said in less than 2 days. Guessing that the 2nd game reveal of the year is planned for Expo in October, which would mean a line changeover in late September.
They have two lines... One is smaller from what I understand. They may need to make that one bigger this year if they hype plays out positively.
The movie itself is not the end all-be all of movies by any means. What Wonka is as a theme? It offers an opportunity of literally an unlimited palette of world under glass opportunity. The imagination runs wild with cool ideas, because this movie is chocked full of imaginative concepts. Wonka is the kind of fantasy world that really works well for pinball.
Quoted from Edenecho:
It became known to me yesterday, that this machine apparently is NOT based on Tim Burtons movie... thats very unfortunate, why would you not have the classic charlie portraid by Michael Ja...I mean Johnny Depp, so much better than the old one
You may be only person in the world that feels this way.
I typically do not really have strong opinions on sound packages, but this one is the proverbial "fingernails on a chalk board" to me every time I hear it play. I just can't. All I can think about when I hear those slot machine noises are old blue haired ladies chain smoking Misty 100's while pumping their social security checks into a 1 arm bandit. Lucky troll dolls are optional.
