Quoted from pinballj:
I guess I am not jumping on the "JJP is moving to std body pins" outright until something is officially announced.
What he said. Even still this does not mean they will never make any again. Companies change their minds all of the time. Personnel at companies change all the time.
The Chevy Camaro was supposedly dead back in 2002. Oh, then they brought it back 8 years later. Now it is rumored to be dead again. And nobody ever thought the Corvette would end up being a mid-engine someday.
Products are like cats...they CAN have more than one life and specifications can/do change.
The wide body pin will never be dead. Was it dead before JJP announced WOZ? Was it dead when pinball was supposedly dead?
Give it a few years with zero wide body pins not being made and suddenly customers will be asking for them and someone will make another again.
