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).

Looks like Melbourne silverball will also be streaming wonka aus#1 after the reveal. Hopefully I’ll get a chance to play it. Details TBA

Quoted from bigd1979:

Standard model may be more affordable but at what cost? Obviously the usual bling but if the price is substantially lower than previous models id guess some major mechs cld be missing?

Virtual ball locks as opposed to the mechs.
Stainless steel trim vs clear coated sparkle power coat

The hype is so high, just hope it meet everyone's expectations!

The problem is that some people have unrealistic visions of what it could be.
