Quoted from PanzerFreak:
Lol yup. Any early build game will be prone to issues and potential fixes needing be done after they are identified on the line in the months to come. Wonka won't be anything different. Personally I rather have a Wonka built a year from today rather than one of the first off the line.
I've found that this is the benefit & curse of being on the otherside of the world. We get some of the early shipments as they sit on a boat for months so just as they are showing up stateside we'll be getting ours (historically).
This also means that fixes and service kits are then flown ahead of the ship as local US customers shake down the machines and jjp figures out fixes.
Sometimes this means it a customer end fix for us (hobbit) or its a distributor fix (pirates).
Regardless of that your comment reminded me of a comment jack said and it was that he'd want the last off the line (i can't remember the exact context of this however so not an exact quote).
