    If JJP put some effort into exactly matching the trim to yellow on road of cabinet, it would have looked 100 times better. These two yellows clash or at the very least do not ‘pull’ from each other. And if yellow was matched to playfield, then update cab art.

    JJP is supposed to be our ‘boutique’ pinball company and this looks amatuerish. You just know HEP would never match like this for example.

    Poor effort here JJP and this is your elite edition.

    Quoted from delt31:

    Yellow wireforms just look so cheap

    I agree. Maybe I’m just old fashioned though and prefer plain metal finish. I don’t care what color they are, but they always remind me of a dishwasher rack when they’re painted

    #153 4 months ago

    This is how they should’ve done it, and I’d have to believe they still could change it. As it stands now the yellow is ridiculous.

    Updated Mech's or Deleted Mech's. I guess the Monkeys flew the coop. I'm a JJP fan and have a WOZ RR but boy looking at this machine make me want to grab a hotdog with mustard.

    Forget that updated lights to ver 2.0 sales pitch bullshit too, I have the ver 1.2 7.5v buffered boards and never had an issue.

    I think it's a miss IMHO, but wish them well. Here's to looking for the next title.

    I would’ve colour matched the cabinet yellow and put in a nice gold flake to really make them pop.

    Sounds like a ton of hate out there for the YBR on the price, removing the mech, color,.... Well, the good news is for all the owners of the other limited versions, they still have a great machine that isn't out dated.

    #166 4 months ago

    JJP needs to switch direction. Now. There is no one within the Pinball hobby who’ll defend this.

    It’s a gouge of non Pinball fans, because, well, they haven’t produced a pin since WOZ that has sold well.

    Make it up with YBR and start GNR and WONKA and make some real pins?

    Double, triple, quadruple dip. But then get on with this. We know.

    Kaneda on fire. I couldn't of said it better myself. His latest podcast perfectly summarizes what just happened.

    Love this company but what an absolute car wreck. They really need to step it up when presenting.

    ‘memba when JJP released their 12th LE variation of the same title? Oh, that’s today.

    Agreed. I suppose the "good news" is that it's possible to do that on your own. It would be a lot more difficult to add glitter to the playfield! LOL!

    I work with paint and colors almost everyday, but yeah you don’t need a degree in colorlurghy to see that the yellow they showed is horrible.

    Quoted from Amused_to_Death:

    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!

    WOZ has looked great in person for the past 8 years.

    This is such a complete joke. I'm a big supporter of JJP but I lost respect for them tonight. This is ridiculous.

    I'm not sure that matching the cabinet color is the answer, though. It looks a bit too "orange" to me. I'd be trying to match the yellow brick road on the playfield. The yellow they went with is definitely too bright.

    To be clear, I was referring only to the glitter on the playfield. I'm in agreement with everyone else as far as the yellow legs and trim goes. It's garish.

    Why does jjp take mechs out of games and charge the same amount or more? The potc thing was a nightmare and tonight looked like amateur hour. Very awkward unveiling. Why not hire someone to handle this for you???

    JJP should wrap it in garbage bags again.

    Talk about foreshadowing right?

    #183 4 months ago
    Quoted from tpir:

    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.

    Ok, I don’t care about a lot of things, but this one I do take exception to. I owned WOZ for 2 years. The LCD in WOZ is the best designed pinball display ever done. You can tell exactly where you are in the progression with a glance. You can tell exactly what to do. The game communicates status perfectly once get used to reading it.

    #184 4 months ago

    Good news is for those who don't like the look or price there are plenty of huo and even some other nib models to purchase ...

    #185 4 months ago

    Someone correct me if I’m wrong; but did i hear Jack say that they were limiting the YBR to 200, but they may make more if they sell?

    #186 4 months ago

    Yes limited to 200... but then will make any amount at any time in the future as they see fit

    #187 4 months ago
    Quoted from spinal:

    Ok thanks. Just wanted to be sure because some distributors and people seem to be selling this off as a Limited Edition, not Latest Edition.

    #188 4 months ago

    What really kills it for me is the black coin door and those wire forms. No question it could have been done better to match the
    YBR on art. It’s just too damn bright.

    LOL. You can't make this stuff up. What a clown show.

    #190 4 months ago

    And the more I look at it I don’t know if a matched yellow powder coat will do it any good. It would be better than the bright yellow as shown at the show though. But yellow is a powerful color that is too much on a pinball machine more often than not. I don’t think that any shade of yellow will ever look right with the cabinet artwork.

    17
    #191 4 months ago

    I just perceive this as a slap in the face. People were legit excited to either see what game is next or possibly a less expensive version of WOZ.

    Instead Jack comes in and “unveils” an 8 year old game in a different color with apparently more reliable yet less mechs than previous versions and charges more money for it! Gee thanks Jack for doing the pinball community a solid!

    I also like how it’s limited to 200 unless it sells well then of course they will gladly make more for the fools rushing to buy it. What a joke.

    Hopefully it looks better in person because it looks horrible in pictures.

    Yes no doubt about it. I can’t see this sitting among my collection like this.

    #194 4 months ago

    I am a big fan of JJP and own a WOZRR, removing the monkey and adding 2k to the price just doesn’t make sense at all.

    2000 games later I have not had any issue with the monkey and wouldn’t mind having to fix it anyways it is such a good toy.

    Plus this version is obviously not made for opertors, it’s a collector version so it just makes no sense at all.

    #195 4 months ago

    If you want to make this game fine. It’s clearly just a cash grab. Just don’t bring it to a pinball show full of pinball hobbyists whom spend thousands of dollars for these things and act like it’s a good deal. Don’t spit in the face of those who support your company.

    Make 100 of them and peddle those turds at high end car shows or some other event where people with way too much money attend and sell them there. The uninformed buyer with money to burn is the target audience for this pin.

    #196 4 months ago

    The ruby red and emerald green are gorgeous machines. I think theyre scewing around and are going to make it gold not yellow.

    #197 4 months ago

    Another thing...

    Reliability is important... but for heaven’s sake IT’S NOT MORE IMPORTANT than having the damn mech working!

    The mechs are what is cool about this machine!

    Removing the monkey is not a feature - it is not something that any collector or lover of the pinball artform would rave about. What we want is the mech to work reliably.

    Now, regarding the flying monkey mech... I’ve never had an issue with mine in my RR. But I’m assuming there must have been some issues.

    Now why the fark, in 7+ (8?) years that this mech has been not reliable, can’t JJP just fix it? It’s a magnet that slides up a rail.

    There is not a single collector or hobbiest that wants this mech removed from this machine and to have it marketed as an improvement is a insult.

    Think not just about making a few more dollars JJP, think about your reputation as a company - please because we continue to root for you despite this ridiculousness (but it’s getting harder).

    #198 4 months ago

    I was thinking it might be like a Pro version of WOZ...stripped down easy to service mechs at a lower price point. That’s normally how product life cycles work...start off with the top end luxury models then keep stripping it down at a lower price once all the fixed costs are amortized. Last model is the budget value model. Not sure what JJP are trying with YBR. The final run is a Luxury model but still stripped down. And still no guarantee it’s the final model. Very strange.

    #199 4 months ago
    Quoted from f3honda4me:

    As much as I hate even thinking about it, I'm considering buying one. We've been trying to get a WOZ for about a month now, and the used ones all want too much IMO. $8k+ and you'd still have to update the light boards.
    And with the only version being available now this new YBR, those used WOZ's are going to go up even higher.

    Pinballs.com still has Emerald and Ruby versions with 2.0 light boards Nib for $9,500.
