So far, I haven't been sold any.

People who were looking forward to this theme can and should be pissed off by the execution of it. It's not as if another pinball company can come behind them and build a proper Beatles pinball. They got the theme, and they ruined it as a pinball theme for the foreseeable future.

Thanks, Ka-Pow!

Buy two, and keep one in the box to sell for $100,000 at Christmas!!!!

Quoted from FalconPunch:

What exactly is the alternative?
Who buys the theme for over a million dollars besides Kapow?
Who else deals with the licensing issues with songs, art, display etc?
Who does all of that and can ship your game
With production starting next week?
Who else does it and makes an profit?
I mean everyone is acting like there is some kind of easy alternative to making this game from someone else.
If you can't afford it then seak it out on location and play it. If you can afford it but don't like it then move on. Play some pinball!

None of my concern. They ruined the Beatles pinball license by making a pinball machine not intended for pinball enthusiasts. Stern could have bought that license (lord knows they have the money) and made a proper modern pinball machine at their normal insane prices and still made a lot of money from Pinball people and Beatles fans alike.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Apparently, just to confuse the hell out of everybody, Stern released "mock up" photos of the game without coin slots. When in fact it will have coin slots.

My guess is, they released that picture to see how badly everyone would freak if it didn't come with a functioning coin door.
Mass freak out occurred, so they're going to be putting 38 more dollars into the BOM to give everyone their goddamned coin door!!!!

I agreed with everything you said right up until the “smart dude” part.

Quoted from Cserold:

Has anybody else heard the following prices?
$15k for Platinum
$30k for Diamond
I’m being serious here. Heard this from a big buyer that was offered at these prices.

I've heard possible price from $50k down. WHO KNOWS?

Ok....before anyone has played it....?......ok.....

Hey.. I've played Seawitch while the jukebox was playing the Beatles........

Quoted from schudel5:

Typically, when you certify something collectible with a certificate of authenticity, it's no longer collectible.

This is what I have been saying......

I was told there would be coin slots?

It's possible that The Beatles Store only got one 10 pack? Wouldn't take long to sell out one of each, if that's all you got.....

Quoted from Aurich:

It's weird, to me at least, that a decade of work and all this excitement only warranted a retheme of an old layout. Couldn't even be bothered to make a brand new game.

That's the whole issue. And, unlike a lot of people who seem to like it, the gameplay video I've seen makes it looks pretty bland, really. Nice display (that you don't watch when you're playing) a bank of 4 drops right across from a flipper (that seem to get knocked down super quickly), and just a lot of meh.

Looks like the spinning disk spins endlessly (one of the things people hate Fireball for), and the price is really well too much for this collection of parts.

Maybe in 20 years someone can try the whole Beatles pinball again and do it at LEAST as good as they did an Aerosmith pinball.....

Quoted from jgentry:

You should go buy one right now then. No issues at all happening. Just saying.
POTC is going to be a great game, wouldn't touch one right now though. What a cluster F.

What's cluser-f-ee about the JJP one?

#498 1 year ago
Quoted from jgentry:

I know of 3 people that got one NIB all required 4-12hrs of fixes just to get them playing. All of them love the game, all of them are pissed about their NIB experience though. I think it's going to be great, JJP needs to fix some QC issues ASAP though. The game is packed with stuff and shoots incredible. No denying that.

I played one a couple of days after coming out of the box, and other than me sucking, the game shot fine... The guy who bought it didn't complain about it being a cluster, either.

Quoted from Aussiepinwiz:

Well that's all very interesting ... but back to the question on this thread ... just how BAD are BEATLES sales so far?
[quoted image]

Here's how bad they are...


According to Stern.

#522 1 year ago
Quoted from pinnyheadhead:

And you have a problem with this? Can’t tell from your post

Why, sir, would I have a problem with this?
I'm not sure who they sold them to, but I was never the intended customer for this thing anyway.

#528 1 year ago
Quoted from Aussiepinwiz:

When was the last title that was sold out to distributors within a week of release? And not just the top model (LE or equivalent) but all models?

Ummm... As has been stated; IT'S NOT SOLD OUT. It's half sold out. Words. They mean things.

#538 1 year ago
Quoted from JodyG:

Both halves are sold out. You've been told this multiple times.

First of all, I'm not going to listen to marketers tell me that a thing that isn't made yet, and a thing that I can buy tomorrow is 'sold out'.

By that logic, JJP has sold out all of the POTC pins they will ever make, because eventually, they will all be sold.

#541 1 year ago
Quoted from JodyG:

You really don't grasp the difference between sold out at the distributor VS sold out at Stern? You surely can't be this obtuse?

Shirley, I understand.

#543 1 year ago
Quoted from J85M:

Because if that means we don’t see another price increase on the next cornerstone or two then even better.......

My favorite row of 7 pins doesn't contain one that cost over 1000 dollars, and most of them were well under 500, a couple less than 200.... As you say, the hobby is as expensive as your expectations make it.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Let's be fair- you can get into this hobby for 500 bucks. Or 900 bucks! That Dracula you have for sale is a fantastic deal.
If it's a "rich man's hobby" for someone, they need to adjust their expectations of what pinball is all about. My first game was 350 bucks, and I'm sure that's true for many folks!
