Quoted from manadams:

Brain trust at JJP... Let's jack up the prices, give them less innovation/toys and base the game on TS 4.
Potential JJP buyers...
[quoted image]

Unfortunately this may be the new JJP with the investors driving the bus. I certainly hope not.

#2902 65 days ago
Quoted from arzoo:

I think JJP may have jumped the shark with this one.

*the Caboom

Quoted from crujones4life:

I think it looks cool...really wish there was an SE option. My family loves Toy Story and Forky. Not for $12,000...

Well, to be fair, that LE is the new SE at CE pricing...!

#2903 65 days ago

This reeks of bad decisions and failure to understand your core audience which has dominated the Bob Chapek era of Disney. It is obvious that Disney pushed JJP to make the game based on Toy Story 4, and JJP knew that they would only sell a limited number of them, so jack the price up to $12K each so they don't take a huge loss.

#2904 65 days ago

Lots of complainers. Like every new release.

I think its looks a like a fun shooter, and the launch ramp looks killer. Reminds me of Gophers.

This will sell out (CE's) quickly and be $30k by Xmas.

#2905 65 days ago

I will never buy a game again without a proper gameplay reveal. Thanks Halloween.

The fact that JJP is taking orders for a 12k and 15k game based on a 1 minute video of a little kid getting stoked because she hit a ramp, released ten minutes before orders go live, is NOT instilling confidence. Been there, done that. No thanks.

Yeah yeah yeah, "it will shoot great". So does my Iron Man and I sure as hell did not pay 12k for it!

Sometimes you just walk away. Not all clients are good clients.

#2907 65 days ago

My guess is the game will be really fun to play, and the the code, and music integration is well done. The JJP pricing structure is the problem...$12K and $15K is a joke even for JJP

No way this will be 30k. And your like every new release comment isn’t true of the great games. Godzilla and CCR didn’t get panned like this (in fact people were begging CGC to release more toppers).

Quoted from pinballj:

I plan on ordering, and having LouMatt over to help set up !

Don't forget little old RC.

#2910 65 days ago

Will there be a LE topper to buy separately.

#2912 65 days ago

Looking forward to buying a CE in 14 mins and leaving this thread behind! haha
If you don't like it just walk away...LOL

#2913 65 days ago
Quoted from Yesh23:

The problem here with this quote...I believe we're all looking forward to playing it but not owning it. Who's going to buy this so we can all play it????

Chris,
Will be one on location in Ohio at Southland Lanes for everyone to play.

#2914 65 days ago

Game looks very underwhelming for the high price I'm sure the play field quality will be bad as well.

Dreams are free....The GNR CE package was far more impressive ... hard to believe JJP didn't put custom side rails on the CE

#2916 65 days ago

Super disappointed but additionally there is only 30 seconds of vague video of it. Literally no mechs or toys at all. A video with legit gameplay could only help at this point, there is no way to feel comfortable dropping this kind of money on 30 second footage and no toys

#2917 65 days ago
Quoted from mrm_4:

How many threads will there be about that stupid ramp destroying the Mirco playfields?
1-10
10-100
100-1000

Any takers on this yet? Im leaning towards the 10-100 grouping by this time next year

#2918 65 days ago

Well, here's to finding out that everything shown so far was just a ruse because there's no way JJP is this dumb.

You got that half right. CEs may sell out but they will not be even close $30k anytime soon.

While the price hike SUUUuuuuccckkkkkkss, thankfully this game is indeed being sold by JJP.

If Stern had made this, faced with comparing prices of their existing games, Stern would 'need' to price this Toy Story game LE for $18k and the for CE $25k.

Quoted from Coolpinballdino:

I hope JJP have the playfield issues sorted finally because if not this game could be a disaster!

Scoop, spinning wheel, jump ramp, gabby pop up, all those features sure create and add a lot of exposed edges.

#2922 65 days ago
Quoted from Jj557:

Will there be a LE topper to buy separately.

My guess is yes....thats what they did for WW and GNR, and they were both relatively cheap (Less than $300)

#2923 65 days ago

If Woody and Buzz are primarily featured on the backbox LCD with callouts by them, this machine could win back the people upset eith the theme integration.

#2924 65 days ago

Spooky is looking a lot smarter today. For Halloween and Ultraman they showed no pictures, no video, nothing. FOMO caused the titles to sell out when the order lines opened. Web site crashed! JJP releasing pictures and video of TS4 are hurting sales already. Imagine if they gave us nothing before 12:00.

#2925 65 days ago
Quoted from djsolzs:

Seems like a step down from the GNR video

SEEMS like? Gnr looks like the mona lisa compared to this.

Why do people continually underestimate JJP. They could be this dumb, don't sell them short.

China already has a bootleg version

No one buying this game at over 20k EVER.

#2931 65 days ago

Pat: We need a big lcd on the playfield. All the kids are using them these days and will pull them in. That translates perfectly to pinball!

JJP: You sure that is a good idea?

Pat. Two words, Dialed In!

I think spooky is going to regret that decision long term…a lot of people felt burned. Plus JJP tried to pull the same thing but people were able to data mine their website.

#2933 65 days ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

R&M is a great game but do agree the scoring could be more rewarding as it is all stacked on getting the 10th adventure.

Lol, tell me you don't know how to blow up a score on R&M without saying you don't know how to blow up a score on R&M.

Quoted from Jackrabbt:

A shot they've fired and won't be able to repeat after failing to deliver a highly desirable product.

People aren't going to get hard locked into $$ without even knowing the name... and all the TS4 angst would have been the same once they know the name.

All this extremism is the same before every freaking release. Let's actually get some real exposure to the game.

#2935 65 days ago

Just caught up on thread and the excitement is sparking and arching off the walls! There is going to be a new pinball machine offered? It is going to be based on Toy Story 4, that’s fine. Oh it costs $12k? Well what else would I expect it has all this stuff packed into the game. I can order one in 7 minutes? Cool. I’ll go grab a malted seltzer and put the deposit on my cc.

Quoted from PtownPin:

The topper was different for GNR, no extra speaker.

#2937 65 days ago

Positive take. Stern realizes after this fiasco that you can’t possible charge this much for their LE’s and keeps their LE’s somewhat reasonably priced and completely takes over this market by next year.

You’re in close to 16K with shipping and whatever else and have a machine that looks like most everything else out there.

Would have been better off charging 15K and rerunning POTC’s.

This is coming from someone who originally ordered WOZ virtually blind before JJP was hardly a company, but you had a feeling game was going to be packed full of stuff.

JJP fans are delusional if they think this.

Am I crazy? I could have sworn I saw the little 30 second trailers for Halloween and UM before ordering mine at launch. There were also numerous pictures. I had just wanted gameplay video to understand the rules, which we didn't get until much later.

#2941 65 days ago

Now if this were based on the entire series?… 30k wouldn’t be out of the question. They cut the market down significantly by making it specific to TS4 and the nostalgia doesn’t hit to make this an emotional purchase. These will sell but none will be bolted to the floor

#2942 65 days ago

Does someone have a list of the differences handy between CE and LE?

The LE art package is much better even though I was expecting to go CE on this. Is there some killer feature that pushes the CE over the edge?

#2943 65 days ago

Let's see how long it actually takes for those 1,000 CE's to sell. That will say it all.

It'll be funny to see them still available months from now, if that's how it goes. Or they could all sell out today and JJP will prove you can still sell anything, at any price, and at any quality.

I hope they get their hands slapped on this expensive lazy game.

Go back to WOZ class games or just surrender to Stern.

It depends I am now a spooky fan and genuinely love my Halloween. Obviously I'm the minority lol. But the hype here is insane and to be TS4 just killed a lot of fans hope

flippers are really sweating this now......

If it sells out quick it's due to flippers taking a chance. Then see what happens and using Halloween and UM as an example, prob not good considering they're in 15 plus tax.

There will be a lot buying just for “their kids” but CEs? We will see

#2949 65 days ago

Yeesh. Even the playfields look nearly identical, some coloration aside.

#2950 65 days ago

Are there any more detailed photos other than what they released earlier this morning?
