Quoted from NeilMcRae:

LE armour looks like blood orange to me.

The official LE armor color is "Illusion Cinnamon" per Eric M.

Some of you have confirmed that you are getting a CE edition. Who confirmed, your distributor or JJP? By email or phone call? Or money already paid?

#353 1 year ago

I tried to buy a CE this weekend, I can’t find one, seems like they are all sold out already.

Phone call from my distributor, then confirmed from Jen and completely paid in full. Not sure my number but I don’t care. It’s a CE.

#356 1 year ago

Email from my distributor confirming I have one.
Deposit made 40 seconds after launch

Quoted from delt31:

I’ve never seen someone so stubborn to admit they are wrong.
How many people do you need to hear it from. It’s embarrassing. Stop with the fake news. You’re wrong.
Now before you respond, I want you to think to yourself.....maybe I should stop embarrassing myself and move along......Good idea

Yes I agree that you are embarrassing yourself...Look just at the post directly above yours! They disagree that it is RED. Yet another independent poster who can see colors! Imagine that!

Then you ignored multiple posts that confirm my opinion by stating that the MANUFACTURER ITSELF refers to the color as—not Red!—but Cinnamon!

And another who says the color includes a mix of brown & reds—try mixing the two and see if you get red. It results in a burnt orange just as I’ve said from the outset.

And photo after photo and hours of videos prove the light show tends to be a better match for the CE—the light show is RARELY a match for the burnt orange armor.

Yes, you really need to stop embarrassing yourself. You’re definitely right about that.

Quoted from Pinzzz:

The official LE armor color is "Illusion Cinnamon" per Eric M.

That is confirmed by my distro who is in direct contact with JJP and per our hours of first hand experience in a room with natural light.

The color is a mix of reds & browns resulting in what those playing it agreed was a “burnt orange”—in any case, certainly not what most would describe as red, unless you play in a very dim space where the lack of light will make it read more red than orange.

#360 1 year ago

I’m no crayola expert and never have been.

I think the red or orange or cinnamon or whatever it is looks awesome on the LE. The poster art is super cool and matches the brick wall motif well. The red roses of the apron match it for me too. When the game is off it looks amazing to me and it is by far my favorite art package (no shade meant on the CE which is also nice!).

When the game is on and the LEDs are blasting, I’m in no position to be judging how well it goes with the armor. I’m doing my best to keep the ball alive. I dare say if you’re staring at the armor instead of the playfield and the 2 different game screens while those lights are active in the middle of 4 balls flying around, you’re either doing pinball wrong or are some kind of mad genius.

What about to the spectator? Unless you play by yourself (which is fine-to each their own) the others will certainly notice the contrast. We had a half dozen playing and it was clearly evident that the burnt orange/cinnamon/blood orange armor was clashing with the light show in most occasions.

With regard to the art, what do you think of the lack of the iconic AFD Cross in the LE?

Ok if we agree with you it can be pink. Does it Really matter? You don't like it, noted. lol

Seriously talking about the light shows clashing with the armor color...I thought I seen and heard it all about a new pin but this has to b a first. I'd say jjp did a amazing job on [email protected] if its come down to that as a complaint. Seriously who cares about that? I hope your just joking ? Right?

If you had spent as much time as we did on this machine, you’d understand how integral the light show is to the “feel” & “look” of the game. It’s as important as the artwork in this case. If your new pin’s PF artwork clashed with the cabinet & armor you’d notice.

But if you don’t mind that’s fine. It’s a great game either way.

Honestly it’s all such a sensory overload (in a great way) that I’m sure I wouldn’t appreciate the nuance of what you’re talking about, even as a spectator. I wouldn’t characterize it as “I don’t mind.” It’s more of “I can’t appreciate what you’re noticing” and instead it is a “love what I’m seeing.”

Regarding the cross, I can say I love GNR music and always have, but have never been so much into it as to recognize the iconography of their band and any alterations thereof.

Missed out on the CE POTC, but at that time I thought the price was nuts, lol.
Look at us now, buying it without even hesitating this time.

like training a dog, just takes a little time.

I understand I’m not speaking with the brightest color in the crayon box (red, burnt orange or other). Sad to see someone continue to embarrass themselves on here but that’s fine. These boards do remind me that there are just less fortunate people out there who need help and have a hard time understanding - the same type that would call themselves freaky guy 666 (as a grown adult). Should have just stopped at the name. Also no need to be jealous of the LE art or the matching GnR red.

Sorry but I’m out on this as I can’t help you any more.

When this kind of crap happens the first and only question I have is “are you buying the game”. If the answer is no, it’s trolling!

One thing I've found about Pinside...when some people choose not to buy a game for whatever reason, they feel a need to justify the decision and get validation from others. If I can rally people around this decision I will feel good about my choice!

No question that this explains 90% of behavior on this site.

The remaining 10% can be attributed equally to stupidity and alcohol.

Guys pinside has great features that allow you to silence posters that you don’t want to see. Not announcing anything specific. Just wanted to make sure you knew

What the fuck do you care your not buying the game anyway!

Got the call today from Jen at JJP. I am locked in on CE. Congrats to everyone who got one. My first JJP game can't wait!

Nice...the only real question is when you'll get the game...I'm sure some will trickle into the market in Nov/Dec, but the balance probably won't be delivered until Q1 next year.

Thanks for confirming that your embarrassment knows no bounds.

I pointed out facts and you simply ignore them.

“Ignorance is bliss” must be your motto.

Keep telling yourself that “The facts don’t matter—I say it’s “RED” despite all the evidence to the contrary including from the manufacturer & designer” and that you won’t miss the iconic AFD artwork.

Oh but I forgot this is the same person who continually dissed Wonka until they owned it and they suddenly changed their mind.

Sorry but I can’t play a mind trick on myself to ignore the fact. Congrats to those who can!

missing the Iconic Appetite Artwork!

That’s the definition if “iconic”.

Add to that the ICONIC GNR CROSS on the Backbox

Quoted from Freakyguy666:

Quoted from Freakyguy666:

lack of the iconic AFD Cross in the LE

Quoted from Freakyguy666:

I hate that I'm back in this, but sure, one last time. As best I can explain it:

The "iconic" AFD cross/artwork isn't on any edition. I'd love to see it on any of the editions, but it's not. The CE art is fine, but no need to pretend it's something that it isn't.

da Vinci's Mona Lisa... iconic.

Blackjacker's Mona Lisa, modified with her sitting on the can playing Smash Bros. and vaping... not iconic.

The original AFD cross... for purposes of this argument, sure, it's iconic.

That modified 7-headed cross... not iconic.

#387 1 year ago

I was Joking! All this its red, no its not was mind numbing and Not your post.

#388 1 year ago

Now more important news. I got the call today that my CE # is 300.

#389 1 year ago

CE confirmed

#390 1 year ago

What is the best way to try and request a specific CE number? Should I stick with my distributor or call JJP to see if they can make note on the order, and maybe tell me what numbers are no longer available?

I hate that I’m back to this but okay, one last time, so let’s see if I can get thru:

Glad we now agree the original AFD cross is iconic...

Given the alternative is no cross at all, I’ll take the slightly modified version of the Iconic AFD Cross.

Just like the GnR Logo says “Pinball” on the ribbon, you’d be hard-pressed to find a fan who would prefer it were removed entirely due to the mod. Same concept with the AFD Cross. Most fans want this because, modified or not, it is reflecting the imagery of an iconic GnR piece of art.

Now the question is: do you prefer the modified cross or the brick?

I've always been on board with that.

The brick. That was a big part of my decision to go with the LE vs CE.

I did find the original cross on the machine. Everybody wins?
