Quoted from DaveH:
Feel free to explain why Mark saying
"Edit: turns out the local distributor actually ordered LE models day 1 so was in front of the line and asked to swap some of his LE for regular versions. There was no line jumping here. I got lucky "
in that thread didn't mean that story was true. I'm not calling horsecrap yet, I'd like an explanation of how something was true then and is now a lie. Years later it does sound like horsecrap to me, so explain it here.
Wow, Pinside sure has become bitcher's heaven of late.
As to this original MASSIVE debacle, I do believe there is truth in the original statements. Why do I believe this? Because there is a Woz Standard sitting in my basement that was ONE OF THESE machines.
Dealer up in Omaha NE (no, not Bene) had a bunch of LE orders placed with JJP day 1. After all of the long delays and the Standard was announced, he switched some of his LE orders to Standards and yes, his remaining LE orders got bumped way down the list.
He got in three Woz Standards this way mid July, myself and another friend from KC drove up and bought two of them on July 22nd, 2013.
So no, it's not "bullshit" as the physical result of this is sitting in my basement.
