Hi All, POTC CE is now enabled on Pinside at https://pinside.com/pinball/machine/pirates-of-the-caribbean-ce (standard and LE were the only options before today).

"Those who engage in acts of piracy are called pirates"

#8403 5 months ago
Quoted from joseph5185:

Pirates is creeping up in that Top 100! ...
Almost 5th, 4th, etc..
I think it's fun to track this.
We already know this is the "best" game on depth alone...but yea.

Review your CE

#8442 5 months ago
Quoted from 3pinballs:

I thought they aren't making any more LE's ....if I'm reading this correctly.

The UK dealer for POTC has stated that they are taking orders for LE's this year as "another batch was being manufactured".

Can anyone tell me what the original batch run was for POTC LE?

Looking at WW the LE numbers are at 5000, that sounds like a lot!

#8494 5 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Sounds like they are referring to the final batch of games being made right now? Those I thought have been sold out to distributors for a while. The UK distributor may just be selling those games they already had ordered.

Thanks for the update. Anyone any idea on the final number of LE's?

The JJP website does not say anything about number production for LE or CE for POTC from what I can see. Maybe it was there and it has gone etc.

Just interested to see how it compares to their newest pin as it could also be an indicator of how much they have grown over the last year or so.

On a separate note some great advice on here I have found it most useful

#8525 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

I guess we need a recent CE owner to see what the blue marker number is under their PF.

I have taken a photo of the inside label for CE number 030, with a manufacture date of 8th January 2019. I have not looked at the blue marker as I am not sure what else that would add?

#8529 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

So CEs aren't broken out from LEs if your CE is 566. The LE here is almost 800, in mid-feb, so 6 weeks to make ~200 from the one you have in late Dec. So, maybe 1000 total then.

So to clarify does the LE have a number presented on the back box in the same way that a CE does?

#8531 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

Yes, there's a collector's plate with a number on the LEs, too.

So if we have 200 CE's I am yet to get a final figure on the LE production run?

Anyone anywhere any input?

#8533 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

The blue number stamped on the bottom of the playfield is the actual order. The serial numbers are meaningless for production tracking.
Your blue number should be in the low 600's.

Okay so LE's and CE's (er and maybe SE's) all made together and the sequence is the blue number underneath the playfield, that is interesting. I will have a look in the morning and see what it is.

TBH I was surprised to get a 30 manufactured in 2019!

#8534 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

A> We don't know that 200 CEs are actually built or will be built. That was the limit, not the total.
B> The blue number is ALL jjPotCs, SE, LE, CE, so we can only guesstimate. It looks like ~1000 is the total made.

I think the 200 figure for CE is documented, the one that is missing is the LE?

#8537 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

The 200 LIMIT is documented. We don't know how many were actually produced. They may not have hit the limit.

So the number of LE's is unknown then?

I here the feedback on the CE, but not much on the LE production run? Please bear in mind that for WW the production numbers are in the public domain right now for CE and LE, this does not seem to be the case foe POTC?

#8543 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

You're confusing the stated production LIMITS for each type with the ACTUAL amount made. Wonka hasn't even been released yet. There's no production numbers made and verified.
On jjPotC since the SE, LE, and CE production was combined with the blue number on the playfield and not separated out, we may never know the actual amount of each. Just a rough total and an estimate of how that breaks down.

That is an interesting comment from you. Most people would think that a limited edition of say 500 meant that only 500 would ever be made?

Not sure how something like this could be confusing to the average person etc?

Below is the WW information that is in the public domain but the same doe not exist for POTC?

Quoted from joseph5185:

Pretty fascinating conversation.
You guys REALLY want to know how many are out there or going to be out there, yea?

Yes please

#8548 5 months ago
Quoted from rs812:

Yours is the 197th CE built

Now that is very interesting, the scenario that CE's built don't follow a build number. So 030 is the 197th built.

I get that from a factory perspective if thousands of pins are being created in a production environment.


#8551 5 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

Again, you're confusing the LIMIT for that model (the most they will make) with the amount ACTUALLY MADE. Totally different numbers. Hint: They're never selling 5000 Wonka machines.

So people can predict the future now?


I predict that the 200 POTC CE will be sold out so limit (no caps) will be the actual made (er no caps again)...........

And, short of asking again can anyone tell me the actual LE numbers for POTC?

#8553 5 months ago
Quoted from rs812:

LE’s have no set limit. CE capped at 200 max

Thank you for this, I think it is good information for LE owners to know this as a statement of fact.

#8560 5 months ago
Quoted from rs812:

This is true for potc. With Wonka they limited it to 5000 LE’s, but that is hardly a limitation. More like a pipe dream.

"Agreed", or should that "a greed"

#8561 5 months ago
Quoted from harryhoudini:

I think people want to know how "limited" their game is, how that limited issue will affect future sales down the road, etc.

Er "agreed", I am sure that there are only 1000 TAF Golds etc............... So making them exclusive with a know parameter rather than a cloud or fog, lack of transparency or mystery...............such as well we planned 500, made 600 of the limited edition but actually sold 700?

Times have defo changed since the 1990's lol

#8563 5 months ago
Quoted from zaphX:

Does the production count really matter?
If you own one you're selling, you likely have multiple buyers jumping on it - I did.
If you own one you're not selling, you know what a great game it is so who cares?

yes it does as you generally pay more for exclusivity, so yes it does count.

#8566 5 months ago
Quoted from rs812:

LE’s have no set limit. CE capped at 200 max
“LE” in JJ parlance is a misnomer. Think of it as Sterns premium

Yes that makes sense, thought the virgin buyer needs to know this. You old sweats on here know this but newbies wont
