Is that 250 topper covers just for Thunderbirds machines Mike ?

or did you order extras to sell so people can fit them to "other" machines ?

Quoted from Homepin:

These are our six demo cabs that will be sited in expat bars in China very shortly (they will have note acceptors fitted).
We will decal them up in a day or so but I want to get a different type of "not so sticky" protective plastic before we do that so we can slap it on the fresh decals to prevent damage.
The wheeled trolleys have been designed and built so they have a protective wood rail all around the cabinet to help with that as well as being built so the machine is at the correct incline for playing without fitting legs.
Second pic is from the office level of the factory:

Hi Mike . Production line looking good . I notice the inside walls of the cabinets are not painted all the way to the base . Is this only because they are "demo" cabs ? I think it would finish the look off nicely if the actual production cabinets were painted all the way down ( or even better the entire inside of the cabinet ) . Also the paint work seems to be a little thin . Is this just the camera flash etc. or again , just because they are "demo" cabs .

BTW great idea about the protective plastic on the decals . Leave it on until it gets to the final customer . Seen plenty of Stern decals get damaged in transit .

Quoted from Ballypinball:

I hear many will be confronting him at Pinfest

IF he decides to show up . My money's on a last minute "I'm too busy here at the factory to leave" excuse .

One things for sure anyway . It'll be the last Pinfest that he's commercially invited to .

cjmjmm2006 and dangerwil . Did your games come with a "standard" size coin door or a narrow skinny door ? When we ordered here in Australia we had the choice of which door to go with . Just wondering what was fitted to your doors being in the USA and did you get a choice ?

Quoted from Homepin:

There are simply too many variables to detail here BUT let me say that pre-order buyers who have contacted Highway Games and specified how they would like to have their machine shipped - and then paid for that shipping (most have been about AU$350) and also the GST that is owing to the Government the second the machine lands at the dock, have had their machines built and shipped in the next build run.
My suggestion to you is to contact Highway Games (if you are a Homepin pre-order buyer - I can't connect your Pinside username with our list), be polite, ask them nicely "how much do I have to pay for XXX shipping method and my GST"? Then pay the money and your machine will be in the next scheduled build run. It really is that simple.

Mike homepin . Are you saying that pre-order customers machines ( mine should be # 0005 ) are not even built yet ( as previously promised ) ?

Yes we are aware that shipping , GST etc. has to be paid ... BUT .. how can we pay that when Highway has not invoiced us for it
Hell , the last I heard from them , they weren't even sure on exactly how much shipping would be . They were still trying to work out how much it would be .

And before you reply with a "please contact them" comment . I am a fully paid pre-order customer ( for the machine anyway ) so it should be them contacting me , not the other way around . You don't contact the electricity company or the gas company at the end of the month and politely ask "how much do I owe you" do you . NO . They send you a bill / invoice upon which you then pay . Simples .

This whole deal of having Highway handle your Australian distributorship is making you look worse than you already do . I can't help but get the feeling we are going in circles and the excuses you bounce off each other is just , well , inexcusable .

Quoted from Homepin:

....well your machine, serial number 2, is currently in a container on the way to Sydney so you can collect it in a week or so. I just don't see what the problem is?
We even unboxed it and fitted the upgraded ramp before it shipped.

What about machine serial number 0005 Mike ? I've tried asking Highway if it's in that first container but couldn't get a straight answer . Seeing as though I was the second person to pre-order in full I would've assumed that it should be amongst the first container load .

#3196 7 months ago
Quoted from julo:

Is my machine in the container on the sea?

Good luck getting an answer to that Jules . I've asked Highway a few times and even tried asking Mike here in my previous post above if my machine ( serial # 0005 ) which was the second machine pre-ordered and paid for in full , is in the container that's on it's way . Instead of getting a simple yes or no we get a detailed post of useless info as to building cabinets and air line fitting prices .

And before anyone asks "have I paid for shipping yet" . The answer is NO because Highway has not invoiced me for it yet nor do they even know how much it will be at this stage .

So I will ask again : " homepin is my machine ( serial number 5 ) on it's way or not ? YES or NO ".
