Quoted from RichieWrench:

I sent part of the below message to a fellow pinsider and wanted to expand on it on this post.....
BUT NOTHING ON THE CE MODEL - I am really worried about JJP on the CE Model - Kind of wondering why the 500 -- Not saying that will not sell - but I have to be honest -- This game is not on the same level as POTC CE -- Its got some good shots and is a fun game - and pinball to me is all about fun. And to tell you the truth for me -- I am not a bashing any of JJP games - I think that they are ALL GREAT & TONS OF FUN.
But I really am worried about the CE Model - Its suppose to be the best of the best and when they did DICE - I was the one that found alot of the items that were well not good quality control with the part numbers on the the art that should have been removed before they were printed to the very cheap topper and such. But it was JJP first origianl theme and it was Pat's game - and I was not going to have the first CE model and I was in hopes that the next one would be much better and that they would learn from this one. Then comes along with POTC CE - Nailed IT -- Different Playfield Art / Topper was great (if though it makes a weird noise, lol) and plus much more. Could not be happier - Had a great number (i think it was 200) that would keep the CE Model in demand, I knew this one was going to be a good one and if you did not get in for one -- then you regret it later. So for me the POTC CE was AWESOME -- So I had great hopes for the reveal and to not have the full CE Model and then they say the playfield will just have some sparkles that sets it apart from the other models --- I was little deflated, but was hopeful that things would change like they have done with games like Hobbit and POTC - So hopeful that the CE Model will still have time to be much better than what was shown......SO........
I AM WORRIED ....
BUT......I know it is not done and we can always change our minds and go for a LE model or just have our deposits go towards to another game - BUT I REALLY WANT THIS GAME TO PROGRESS AND BE BETTER THAN THE POTC CE OR ON THE SAME LEVEL -- DONT TAKE STEPS BACK - REMEMBER ITS 12,500.00 -- TAKE IT TO THE NEXT LEVEL AND GIVE THOSE COLLECTORS WHAT THEY WANT - A Collector's Model that is a step above the rest
I am just saying -- Little bit worried - But maybe that is the reason why we have not seen anything yet.
And just for the record -- I did not say anything about a powder coating of the door above... So that does say alot, I have toned it down.....A BIT.

Quoted from Yelobird:

Just got news from PinballStar Joe. Due to RichieRich’s previous insubordination and constant late banter unit #12 CE will be the #499th machine off the production line! I estimate he will get his game some time near Christmas 2032.

LMAO - Dave you are actually a bit off... We are sending him his game 1 piece at a time with assembly instructions. He'll be first in line but we are just sending him a screw on that day. According to Gary Stern there are 3,000 parts in a pinball machine so this will take him out about 9 years. He's very handy being a contractor and all.

Quoted from KingBW:

Where is richiewrench? Joe (PinballStar) - I think you should text him at 6AM tomorrow morning and ask if he wants you to send him the assembly drawings ahead of time to study. He always wants the info upfront.

I should send him parts that don't even assemble a pinball machine - have him work on this for months then he ends up with a shitty end table or something...

#405 9 months ago

This'll keep him occupied for while...

When we were all young and looked at Playboy, Richie ooh'd and aah'd over this...

(I'm going to pay for this little ball busting episode with 5,000 text messages I'm sure)…

Let me remind everyone I did eventually get Richie his powder coated coin door last year at Expo at the DI CE owner's dinner - and I had Jack and Pat Lawlor sign it for him - not sure what he's still griping about...

Quoted from meSz:

Joe, make sure you leave one crucial small piece out that will not allow him to ever complete the machine! Kind of like when you build that 3000 piece puzzle only to find one piece is missing.
I think the funny thing here is the fact that Rich (Richie, come on how old are we) made a huge ordeal about this game and was giving his machine up not too long ago. The pinball addiction is strong with this one, better get him to rehab!!!

He's no different than the rest of us... We are all nuts aren't we ? Wouldn't trade him for the world (ok maybe a cookies and cream ice cream, they're REALLY good)...

I'm thinking no start button... That'll piss him off...

Here's a funny one - Richie Wrench related...

Jack comes up to me at Expo - says 'OMG why weren't we thinking - if either of us thought about it we should have put the #12 plaque on the show game we have here at the show and just sit back and wait for Richie to notice or be told'... he'd think his game was getting the shit beat out of it at the show. Hilarious

Damn... missed opportunity to freak him out there ! But hilarious even JACK is thinking of ways to give Richie the business ! I found it more funny that there's Jack thinking of this stuff and not me moreso than the idea itself !

We both love him very much as you can tell... : )

Willy Wonka CE #12

The Pinside bidding starts at $ 1...

Who will be the lucky winner of the most talked about game ever... he’s in / he’s out / he bought $ 1,000 of mods, he’s back in... This game has had some serious emotional ups and downs - who’s gonna give this non-powdered coated coin door beauty the love it deserves ?

Quoted from Yelobird:

There are 3 toilets backed up at the Steak and Shake in Bloomington Normal. Can you come over at 10 am to poke at the problem. Should be done by 4 pm. Thanks.

I'm actually hiring homeless people to poop there all day - you're screwed Richie !

Quoted from Yelobird:

Curious, in your persistent nightly calls to Joe do you think he ever questions the irony that You live in a place named Normal Illinois??? Lol. Congrats

When he first told me his address when he bought his first game I was like ‘you need to move’
