recently inquired with my distributor about a pirates of the caribbean and a willy wonka standard. they basically told me not to purchase the pins due to poor board configurations?? i know machines will have their issues, but is this something that is common with the newer JJP's? i'll post the conversation below. really starting to enjoy pirates and it sounds like with all the issues i should keep my fingers crossed for a black pearl edition further down the road, or just wait for toy story. really want to own a JJP, but considering the price and these issues with quality control i'm slightly worried. any info from distributors or home owners of JJP games would be greatly appreciated. I am located in Saint Louis.
"The standard models are still being made, however, we have not stocked them because Jersey Jack is having a lot of problems with this machine. Eric would be happy to discuss what issues they are having but until they can come up with a solution, this is not a good pinball. The Willy Wonka is the same issue, since it is Jersey Jack, and they are using the same board configurations so we are holding off on them as well. If you’re dead set on one of these, we can find out how long it will take to get one. We would love for you to use us as a source to purchase, but we will always protect you with good information so you can make a good purchase."
