New! Dark mode!
Browsing Pinside at night? Getting tired of all the white? Switch to dark mode using the button in the top right (or CTRL-B)!
Quoted from LTG:
The lid is now fixed open. What a great tragedy. First thing I think of when I played it. Looking back there. Crap, is that lid up or down ?
Are you dropping 10K-12K on one of these machines?
Folks spending that much cash on a pinball machine tend to be somewhat picky.
Quoted from screaminr:
Finally a picture. I have to say I much prefer the original barnacles they look alot more realistic in color. I was hoping the armour was going to be like the hobbit le only green that would have been great but Davey Jones on the playfield helps make up for this he looks really good so much better than captain Jack.

I wonder what happened. The original version looks pretty darn good in comparison.
Must be licensing.
Quoted from Yelobird:
A single cell phone picture of the lock down bar/sticker and the game is being thrashed. I have no idea why they wouldn’t keep posting build images of the game prior to release....lol. In typical JJP fashion I suspect this model and every detail as a complete package will be Awesome! There is no doubt any/all changes will not be loved by all but this will be a special game for certain.
Thrashed? Your pension for hyperbole is noted.
Quoted from Yelobird:
Ok maybe thrashed was a bit much but we really do get judgemental based on very little content. Lol. Just saying this game (CE) will be an ultimate masterpiece so consider giving them the benefit of doubt that they want it perfect also. We have had our LE for a month now and in Person the colors and quality are simply brilliant. I suspect the CE will be every bit as special.
I'm sure all will end well, but many of these people are dropping 12.5K for this pinball machine.
At that price point, each buyer has a right to be (overly) critical and mouth off a bit.
And any manufacturer asking 12.5K better be prepared for criticism.
Quoted from f3honda4me:
My wife, who is quite picky, said the disc was super annoying and distracting. After the mod, she doesn’t even notice the disc now. It truly is a must have. JJP should buy them from Yelobird and install at factory hah!
At only 12.5K, you really need to temper your expectations.
Quoted from Ilushka85:
At the end of the day they all have decent coils and leds and io boards. It’s the same. They are all made of wood and items are screwed into the wood with similar screws. So the quality is roughly the same.
The difference is in the amount of parts and mechanisms and there is much more of that in a jjp game then a stern. Which means that thru assembly , shipping , usage of these mechanical items there is more that could and will go wrong.
You know why Toyota Corollas break less then bmw 7 series ? Because they are empty cars. Their massaging seats can’t break because they just don’t exist in the Toyota. Etc.
Quoted from DerGoetz:
Why would you have a tech guy for mods? Working on your pinball is more than half the fun. It's like talking to a girl, and you have someone else take her home....
You cannot break anything (really) installing the mods yet it will teach you about your machine. And you are a handy guy, judging by your trade.
I understand that many of us have everything but spare time, but you are missing out on a lot of fun, education and satisfaction.
If anyone comes over to your house and wants to talk shop ..... what then....
Unfortunately, a lot of us just don’t have the spare time.
