I could be in for a CE but need to wait and see what it has over the limited ed. and would like to flip the machine first
If they are all sold out when I make my mind up - so be it - I'll just get a limited and save a few grand

looking for number 12.5 hopefully

I couldn't take the hype train, been waiting through 4 pins to find a JJP I wanted.
Deposit in on a CE

Quoted from RichieWrench:

Nope, just getting my own reproduction #12 plaque

Quoted from RichieWrench:

i don't know richiewrench
I ate the hype for this game, put a deposit down on a CE, and now I am questioning it.
I agree JJP gives you more things for the same money than stern, but that reveal was a huge let down. They should of waited another month to get it more polished. I was expecting ground breaking, and did not see it. I can't believe I am saying this, maybe it's too early and I need more coffee, but right now I am thinking DI over Wonka. From what I saw in the stream, nothing wowed me. Use of video, which is awesome on every other jjp was a let down, so was music and call outs. Didn't see any ground breaking mechs on the playfield. When I saw poc with the rocking ship and shooting cannon balls at the other ship, that was a wow factor. WOZ with the 2 upper playfields, the trees, the spinning house, the witch... That was wow. What am I supposed to look at on this machine that wows me, the hole in the pf multiball?

I really really want to like this game, I hope when I play it I am wowed.
$12,500 is way to much to take a leap of faith. Plenty of time to see if this is worth it before I pay in full as they are producing the standards and le's first.

Quoted from DylanFan71:

I have a CE deposit as well and I’m kinda annoyed with the increase to 500 units. Wasn’t blown away by any means. Probably end up with an LE.

Why? - who really cares if they make 500 or 1,000 of them
If you have one in your home and enjoy it - what's the difference how many others have the same one?
I just don't really understand the collector mentality - these are toys: buy what you like, play the hell out of it and sell it when it bores you.
If you can't absorb these machines losing a percentage of their value, then you may be spending too much

Quoted from DylanFan71:

Then why does JJP limit to 500? The nature of the model is scarcity.
500 or 1000 games made plays little into my decision to buy a game but that price point with a potential of 500 made tells me getting rid of it will cost thousands. Not the only factor in making a decision, but as someone who has bought every JJP NIB, the resale isn't always there.
Thanks for the advice though.

I understand the model of scarcity - what I was saying is that I don't care about scarcity nor resale value
I think the bigger issue with buying a CE affecting resale value is the actual cost and not the amount available.
The market for a $5,000 used machine is much greater than a market for a $12,000 machine be it 250 or 500 produced

Please send me $5 for the advice

If the CE topper is just average - then I am 100% going down to an LE
just don't see the CE being worth it to me unless they surprise us with something unexpected

I'm keeping my CE spot until I play more developed code and see the final artwork/topper package
But at this point 94.6% sure I am not sticking with the CE and 63.5% thinking I may drop out all together.

Sorry, Mafia had to be the worst game at pinfest
Maybe it plays better at home, but I couldn't compell myself to finish a game

I canceled my CE a while ago, the long wait and the fact that wonka didnt wow me just pushed me out. At this point I would not roll the dice with $12,500. Also, what good is a replacement PF if the issue is not fixed. To be fair stern is having issues on multiple titles also. Pinball is not a needed thing, and I definitely don't need the stress of dealing with chipping pfs

the topper ......

CE looks like a nice package - it is beautiful
but for $12,500 that topper is not only bad - it's an embarrassment compared to MMre for $10 grand even compared to some of the Stern toppers: BK, Munsters, Walking dead
