$4100? Just a rumor? Could this really be the price? If so, it could be a big seller.

#411 2 years ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

Where'd you hear that price?
I doubt it will be that low initially, even if it's the kind of price point Mike intends to hit medium or long term. Simply because, if it's a decent machine, then there's no way they'd be able to keep up with demand - see discussion above about size of the production facility.

Quoted from Homepin:

Member "Oldschool1969" is downvoting many posts in this thread. He is also a well known troll and "Homepin hater" for reasons unknown to me.
I am outing "Oldschool1969" and putting you on notice about your antisocial actions.
I will be making a complaint directly to Robin about you and believe me, he has grown very tired of childish behavior like yours.
If you have a beef with me then grow some balls and come out and say what that is so I can address it. Otherwise bugger off from my thread!

Don't worry so much about downvotes. It's a public forum.

Quoted from cosmokramer:

I wish Mike could edit this thread and keep it clean. He could start with deleting all the static about jjps posting rules and what stern is doing....
Not every poster should be able to moderate their own thread but certain types of threads such as this or a restoration documentation should be allowed to stay on topic.

It's July 4th. A good day to remember the value of free speech.

I realize this is a privately owned site, and therefore not a true first amendment issue, but I still think there is value in minimizing censorship.

Painted habitrails, last seen on...Roller Coaster Tycoon? Am I forgetting some other examples?

Also, last time we saw palm trees on a playfield...Surf N' Safari?

Quoted from fishbone:

Batman66 also.

Must be only the LE, etc. my local one has silver.

I forgot about WOZ ECLE, and I used to own that game!

For some reason, I just associate colored rails with RCT. I think that game is underrated. Bad code, but pretty great layout.

The link to Aussie Arcade forum was helpful and appreciated. Mike actually posted a letter to Ben in which he told his side of the story and gave a semi-apology.

I’d like to see a similar link to the previous controversial thread involving Mike and Kaneda. Might help further set the record straight.

#1889 1 year ago
Quoted from sd_tom:

that whole thread was deleted by AA. The whole thread started down people asking whether or not they were getting people showing up and their door trying to get signatures for legalizing gay marriage. Mike chimed in with some snide comments, people called him on it, he doubled down, then got offended when someone called him a tinkerer, then somewhere later K chimed in .. you didn't even have to read the thread to the point where K got involved to form an opinion.

That’s a shame. I’d like to read the original thread for myself, and draw my own conclusions.

Is Mike offering refunds for you pre-order guys? Is that even an option?

You gotta admit, it has a nice playfield prop.

When we say silicone, is this Superbands? Or is there some other silicone thing? I have found Superbands to be weirdly sticky and too bouncy compared to regular rubber.
