11,500 for ugly yellow trim. wheres richie wrench? i am sure he will approve.
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.
buy the beautiful ruby red. somebody has to have a new one. dont “monkey around”
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.
Quoted from davijc02:
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.
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.
Quoted from f3honda4me:
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.
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.
Quoted from PinballSTAR:
PinballSTAR is ready to go being one of JJP’s larger distributors we have a nice allotment coming of WOZ YBR ! $ 250 refundable deposit to secure your spot.
We still have a few POTC LEs too ; )
Email Joe at Sales@PinballSTAR.com.

you are a great guy. but you come into this thread after all the negativity and come off like a snake oil salesman.
Quoted from Yelobird:
I’m sorry but as much as I love most of what JJP does this game is a huge miss at every level. My favorite part of the presentation was when someone asked “what is your favorite new feature of the YBR addition?” And the team was without words lol. Most said “ I like the yellow......” lol. Plus as they noted and their site notes “Limited to a number of games” lol. Basically whatever number we can sell. Sad as if they announced another run of POTC LE’s there would have been a line out the door to buy them. Sad day for JJP unfortunately.
another train wreck reveal.
Quoted from Aurich:
Damn, I feel bad for everyone at JJP right now. I'm sure they all realize how wack and desperate this is, and are just trying to keep the lights on before Wonka, but it can't feel good. Wishing them the best, but you'd be a real fool to buy this game. Resale is really going to suck, not only is it overpriced, ain't nobody gonna want the version with a removed mech later when buying used.
exactly. people buy pros and bottom line they save a couple thousand and dont care about a missing mech or gimmick. but this is the WOZ ultra model for 11,500 and its missing the monkey? i will see these crashing on secondary market. if you buy this expect to lose 3000 driving it out of the showroom!!!
Quoted from Pinballomatic:
What I mean is that they are all allotted and two of the distributors I spoke to have deposits on more than half their number already. With that start, it makes no sense to me that the 200 games will not sell. But this is not something that really needs debating. We can just wait and see what happens. Not a huge issue.
People knew this was coming and put in their deposits. But once they find out the monkey was removed for 11,500 they will tell them to F-off and get the deposit back!
