    Quoted from solarvalue:

    I don't think this is a big deal, all the pinball people that want a WOZ already have one, the YBR doesn't have the monkey so owners of the older ones won't feel bad and JJP can make some money from some very wealthy families who are new to pinball. Hopefully they can put that cash back into the business.

    Two of my neighbors are looking for a WOZ and I told them to wait until this new version is released.

    They will now both be purchasing HUO.

    buy the beautiful ruby red. somebody has to have a new one. dont “monkey around”

    Yep....NIB, RR would be my choice at the moment

    $ 11,500 Brick more like it.

    Quoted from crazypinballguy:

    This YBR edition only increases my love for my ECLE.

    Yep - the green ECLE version looks best so far to me.

    I understand the 2021 orange Munchkinland version is gonna be killer though!

    So I wonder how the ball is getting up to the castle playfield without the monkey? The door on the right appears to still be there.

    Quoted from Goronic:

    All of the JJP pins have top notch build quality, innovation, and software..

    Along with no fun shots, bad animated gif art and bad design on the LCD (so much wasted space and difficult to follow during play.)

    This is extremely galling on JJP's part. Although that does not shock me since I just watched a moron frisbee out MAGA-style pinball hats.

    Yes, but that version will be missing the monkey mechanism and both upper play fields.

    #109 63 days ago

    Is there a reason they removed the monkey?

    #110 63 days ago

    Don't like the yellow trim, I get it's a theme, but it looks meh.

    #112 63 days ago

    jjp and their money grabs are just turning me off to them. this is garbage!
    another horrible reveal. they just dont know how to reveal their pins.

    Releasing this game to me just seems laughable. This should have been released over a website not unveiled as something new.

    I’d say the company needs new leadership. The last two titles they’ve botched the release timelines and they are already a dropping pirates like a bad habit.

    Really wondering if/when they will figure out all the problems.

    It is embarrassing.

    Hopefully, they will get their act together and figure it out.

    Quoted from robotron:

    Would love to. Been trying to get one for a few weeks now. I’m trying to text Kingpin Chris though about ordering a YBR for MGC but I’m sure he’s busy at TPF.

    To me it’s not worth buying an $8k pin then sink another $1k in plus 12 hours for light boards if the boards flake out.

    they said they ordered parts for a number of pirates and parts ran out and they are done with it even though they have the license for 3 years.
    guess it wasnt very succesful.

    #118 63 days ago

    Here are my reactions...

    1. WTH? No Monkey and 11.5K?

    2. OK, they make some more money and maybe playfield and apron really do look better in person. More money is good for the company.

    3. No, wait a sec. Somehow this just doesn’t seem like it puts JJP in a good light. Why is the Monkey mech removed? Is that really that expensive a part or faulty enough that they had to remove for this elite edition? I never had a problem with mine in my RR. Something just doesn’t sit well with me but it’s been less than an hour.

    If you look past the price there is a lot of value. Better mechs, more reliable, easier to work on. Sparkling playfield with metallic yellow bricks, I like the yellow wire and trim and wood apron. Radcals are awesome and the art blades look great.

    please dont believe the hype on the boards. i had my ruby red with the older boards and never had one issue with it. especially if it HUO. if you can find a very nice one you can tell if it hasnt been played much. the boards will be ok.

    Somewhere right now Gary Stern is having a vodka on the rocks and smiling

    #122 63 days ago

    And the 2.0 boards are definitely not flaky.

    Thought they said that the magnet will hold onto the ball in the playfield and then shoot a ball from the VUK. But I will admit it was hard to hear.

    I know two people with WOZ and both have board problems. There is a risk no matter how you look at it.

    #127 63 days ago

    Same old ugly witch in the tube. Just a money grab...

    #128 63 days ago

    Did they replace the Wizard with Ronald McDonald? I'll have fries with that!

    Wow it's so ugly. JJP sucks.

    #133 63 days ago

    Weirdly, this has taken a bit of the shine off of "Wonka appeal" for me, the more I think about it.....man, I really want to add another JJP to my lineup, but the talk of "better build, better this, better that", then seeing this, again with a cool mech removed for more $$$...just don't understand it

    #134 63 days ago

    Weren't these under $7K new when 1st released.

    #135 63 days ago

    guess POTC was a miss for them and wanted a filler before next game given the previous title was Dialed in, which i do like, but prob also didnt sell well due to original theme.. makes you wonder what the financial situation is.

    #136 63 days ago
    Quoted from skywalker:

    they were losing money at that price

    #137 63 days ago

    New style boards.

    Emerald Cities were $6500 I recalled but that was like 5-6 years ago when prices were more realistic.

    #139 63 days ago

    Makes me think wonka and toy story will be north of $10k

    I think it’s clear that POTC was something of a disaster financially.

    I hope they can right the ship, but I don’t see how this yellow WOZ at $11,500 is going to be very beneficial.

    ladies and gentlemen....this is why JJP can pull off this absolute robbery. Can you believe someone is actually trying to rationalize why this is OK?

    Pinball people never let me down! Hey - at the very least, I hope it brings Jack some more money to make better games so maybe I shouldn't even call this out!

    #142 63 days ago

    I agree this should not have been a "covered" pin announcment, but it doesn't really matter in the end.

    Quoted from f3honda4me:

    Sorry it's so pricey for you, I know you were hoping it would be less. Still, it just proves there might be a market for this after all. Who know how many they actually have to sell to make it worthwhile at these prices anyway.

    So much anger here. The world does not owe us reasonably priced pinball machines. It's too much for me but I"m not angry about it, I just won't buy one. If Wonka comes out at 10K plus, I'll be sad as it's a dream theme, but it's their business and they have to do what best for them. Anyway, I don't think I'll stay in this thread and debate this though

    If you do get it, f3, enjoy. I bet it's a great looking machine in person (they always seem to look better in person than the pictures or videos show).

    Quoted from sd_tom:

    So i guess now is the time to make up the $ short fall for 1st release

    #145 63 days ago

    yea, out of this thread too.....WOZ has been JJP's cornerstone, love my ECLE ( very reliable since the boards were switched some time back), but now questioning if there's another bullet in the chamber ( was never a DI guy, in on POTCCE until they changed the mechs).....

    Bourbon night..time to play what I have....

    #146 63 days ago

    11,500 with tax and shipping, i will buy an oktoberfest and a nice huo stern pro!

    #147 63 days ago

    Some quick pics of the glitter on the YBR and of the yellow wireforms. You'll need to zoom to full size to see the glitter. It looks great in person!

    Don’t get me wrong. It’s overpriced.

    ... Bourbon night..time to play what I have....

    I like your thinking. And your collection!

    You should reconsider re: POTC. I was never hot about it until recently. My LE is my first JJP and it's quite a game!
