Reveals are out, orders going in, time for a place with less complaining about what's not in it and more about what is. Game looks solid and code sounds deep - excited to see what Elwin does with an upper playfield.

#2 6 months ago

Congratulations but mods often shut these down before one ships. Good luck!

#3 6 months ago

No clubs till games delivered. IBTL

Makes sense. Swear they're usually up earlier but probably my imagination. Mostly a) tired of the whine thread (why do they even call those hype around here) and b) recalling the first bond owners thread and figuring someone should start one before the wrong person does. Honestly, seems like mods should start these for new games nowadays to prevent shit shows like that.

I’m super hyped for the game and I’m having fun with the shit show in the hype thread

Come back and swim with the sharks. (Somewhere the is a parallel to be made with the hype thread and the USS Indianapolis)

I'm in!

It *is* nice for someone to have something to be negative about other than venom.

Fun fact they filmed this when the water was still extremely cold. The reaction of people racing to get out is real

The club will be all trawling, no trolling

#19 6 months ago

Games have shipped, so owners thread is now open.

Quoted from Jodester:

Everything on location are prototypes. Nothing officially shipped yet. Also person who starts thread has to post pics of their received machine to prove they are an owner or mods shut down the thread. I think 2 or 3 others have tried this already and all have been shut down.

#21 6 months ago

Please fix the title, it's going to drive me insane for years

Jaws Owners Club

or

Jaws Owners' Club

would both suffice. Thanks in advance!

#22 6 months ago

Maybe it’s a club just for the OP. That would make the apostrophe usage in the title correct. Otherwise, I agree it needs to be changed.

#23 6 months ago

LE for me. I don't care about the rules. Money left my account and paid in full last week, so I am an owner. Even listed it in my collection...gasp! But just in case, IBTL!

I’m a member of Pinsides’ Jaw’s Owner’s Club

LE paid in full!

Actually, the title is grammatically correct... Didn't you hear? Stern listened to the gnashing and wailing about overproducing games and is only making ONE Jaws pinball machine this time.

So why was the one I started shut down yesterday? This is even the same title

I wondered the same! Pinside is so weird….. maybe you weren’t the cool kid

#32 6 months ago

IBTL...waiting for my LE...

The person who receives the first pro should start the owners thread...

#33 6 months ago
Quoted from Red_Devils:

Because this one already existed....which means it was most likely locked 12 days ago & then unlocked today; making it the officail-ish one.

Oh if this one was unlocked then I guess it is the one! I’m in for a premium. Can’t wait!

This the guy who starts an owners thread Hmmmmmm
quote from the Hype thread.....

Quoted from Ollulanus:

All these clips are great for Jaws fans, and it's cool to see them working the theme in so well. However, I can't help but see this as a negative on location. Nothing about those clips scream LETS PLAY PINBALL for the majority of folks under 40 who've never seen the movie.

Yes, yes - most everyone knows what jaws is. But I guarantee the vast majority under 40 have never actually seen it. I watched that opening clip of Schieder heading off to work in his little police truck and thought immediately - people are gonna wonder what junk they just shoved a buck in. I'm skeptical how this is going to do on location, where 95% are NOT pinheads and have no idea who Elwin is.

It WAS cool to see Elizabeth whip KME and Co though.

And another......

Quoted from Ollulanus:

LOL, how about instead of downvotes you explain to me why I'm wrong? Seriously, I'm willing to be wrong here. I have one on order to put out because I DO think it'll be a good player, but I'm VERY skeptical of how it will do on location after watching the stream.

All this video is AWESOME if you know and love the movie. But I'll guarantee the majority of folks under 40 in any bar have never actually seen it all the way through. Those people are gonna see the game start with Brody getting in his truck and shrug. I'm cautiously optimistic SHARK WEEK PIN does the trick where 50 year old movie doesn't, and it's AWESOME we aging pinheads are getting a theme that's special to many. Hopefully it lands like Godzilla, but that was campy and fun and tapped into folks who might not know toho but grew up with japanime and power rangers and were prepped for that brand of campy fun. Not so sure here.

Whatever though - hope I'm wrong! And it WAS cool was cool watching Elizabeth clean house on her first project!

Seems he's real hyped about the game, just because you jump the gun starting an owners club doesn't mean it should be resurrected and made the official one. I followed the rules and created after they were shipped and in operators hands any one of those guys could have started the thread, but I guess I'm not the cool kid as Green-Machine says, I'm just tired of all the "rules" that apply to some and not others

Back to your regular programming.....

Blame me for missing your thread. I chose one at random to open.

Would you guys like me to close this one and open a new one fresh from scratch? Or yours RedDevil?

Well I think the main thing is that the owners forum stays positive.

In my opinion the game itself and specifically the LE truly looks like an amazing piece of art….

The mirrored backglass inspired by the original movie poster

The “great white” rails and hardware with the bite out of them

The high res cabinet decals

the interactive speaker lights linked to modes in the game

The yellow barrel custom shooter rod

the boats

the shark

The original John Williams music soundtrack

over 70 movies clips

the fishing reel

the upper playfield with boat steering wheel

The chum bucket spraying the playfield blood red

The shark fin target arching through the playfield.

Fast action, deep code and tough shots!!

In case you can’t tell I am absolutely stoked for this release and can’t wait to battle the great white monster myself.

Just leave this one open and let’s start seeing the unboxing !!

#39 6 months ago

The premium seems to have lollypop rails too which I find another cool addition to the mid level game.

That's a weird looking lollipop

Quoted from TheLaw:

"Triangular button guard side rails" has a nicer ring to it...

Actually pretty happy to see Stern adding these as they were a cheap add on ($60) and improvement to their typical standard rails if not splurging for decorative side armor.

It really is lol.

I really wasn't sure what to call them.

#48 6 months ago

My LE and dream theme! Can't wait! We are getting a Pro at the local brewery last week of Jan.

#49 6 months ago

I plan to play the game at TPF and decide if I want one at that time.

I will say, that LE looks great.
