Looking forward to getting my Full Throttle so I can swap playfields with this new game.
Quoted from Blackjacker:
I understand (I think) your sentiment, but taken literally this is pretty funny, or indicative as to why so many manufacturers likely view the pinball crowd as a gold mine to be scoured clean.
This is actually why I admire Heighway's business plan. Create a platform and let the owners consume playfields like potato chips. A big reason I'm in is I like the business model and think it will be a success.
I always saw buying Full Throttle as my starting point knowing I could pick up the later games for far reduced price.
Dennis has been public about wanting to do another Elvira, but there is no way that is a "Major A-List license".
That would be playing to the very established older pinball demographic, which doesn't seem to be the direction Andrew wants to take his company (new pinball played on location).
It's funny to me that we keep getting "we want original themes" on pinside, but the reality is if even just the idea of a license is thrown out there, it gets far more responses than anything else.
Quoted from Jared:
Coming soon. Expected $3500-$3700
As Heighway produces more titles this is going to be a huge selling point. Addresses the 2 biggest problems in pinball, space and money.
I'm already envisioning a time having multiple Heighway playfields stacked in a back room and rotating them for my pinball league for each visit.
Quoted from Chambahz:
I was thinking last night, it would be cool if something small could be added on the inside of the legs perhaps so that you could store a playfield or two under the cab, possibly hanging on the inside of the legs?
Like a mini shelf?
What do you guys think?
Because the legs stretch out, the distance at the floor is wider that the playfield, I wonder if you could slide a spare playfield along the floor under the machine. Just as I do my pin lift.
Quoted from mwong168:
Have you never lifted the playfield on any of your games before? I don't think sliding it would be advisable unless it had some sort of roll cage to protect and prevent you putting all that weight on coil brackets, bulb sockets, switches and other mechanisms.
I'm assuming the heighway system is more like p2000 than stern and can be placed on the ground.
