Personally, very disappointed the 3 spinning wheels will be removed.
Had a lot of time on a prototype machine at banning. I inspected this mech playfield up a few times. I saw the biggest flaw was the nylon guides, felt they should be metal or bearings.
Sad to see this top notch feature removed.

Quoted from DCFAN:

I think they are now one single whirlwind style spinning disk instead of three concentric independently spinning disks/rings.

Correct, one big clunker of a disk. Might i add, 3 inches larger than the largest whirlwind disk. A la, TMNT spinning pizza.
I will say the trunk mech was a clunker, biggest problem we had on 2 prototypes.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

In 1969, the US put a man on the moon. JJP should be able to engineer a working spinning disk assembly in 2018. Not that they have to, but because it's a challenge to be conquered. Fix that and JJPOTC might be more sophisticated than landing the Apollo on the moon. #nevergiveuponjjpotc

John F. Kennedy — 'We choose to go to the moon in this decade and do the other things, not because they are easy, but because they are hard."
Good thought Jeff.
JJP, LETS MAKE THIS WORK, PINBALL IS HARD, and your charging a ton of money.

My Houdini trunk is hitting in the low 90% range on accuracy.
Apperently Joe Balcer should have stayed at JJP. Joe,Thanks for coming over to American Pinball and making a great game!

Man there’s lots of carguments in this thread!!!

Thats because you can buy a car for 9500-12500.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

They don’t make games that aren’t sold.
It’s not 1997.

Thats not true.
You want a Hobbitt?
How about one of each model, NIB?

#1093 2 years ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Yeah, could very well be. Jack really does care about his customers so I wouldn't be surprised if he's the one to say lets try and get the 3x spinning disk to work or be onboard for another solution.

Jack does care. He will be first to tell you he didn't get into pinball thinking he would get rich. He just wanted to make top notch, unique, hard games and bring pinball into the 21st century. And FYI, he's still not getting rich, lives in a mansion or drives a Ferrari or Tesla.

#1095 2 years ago
Quoted from o-din:

I was guessing and it was only a guess that he might have been somewhere in Asia looking for somebody that could make his disc thing work.

He was in England talking to JK Rowling about you know who....( A man can dream).

#1112 2 years ago
Quoted from deeproot:

Hehe. No. We were promised first dibs on HP by WB if Rowling ever decides to un-ban pinball from the license.

Your a funny guy. Keep dreaming. Pretty sure they would go with an established company that makes pins, not promises.
Make a few titles and get back with me.

#1136 2 years ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Alright, I’ll bite...
How can we verify your statement is true and Warner Brother’s gave you a right of first refusal on the Harry Potter license theme pending JKR giving approval for any a pinball machine? Are you able to show us the right of first refusal? Just wondering how what you are saying is a fact is verifiable by us?

Tiger, dont bother. Its way above Warner Bros management, and Universal MPA. He doesnt even mention Universal so I already new he was full of it. This is a megalith of a franchise with so many hands in the pot, even approval is beyond JKR probably.
Sadly, one of many reasons we will never see a Harry Potter pin.

The studios want there cash. A lot of High salaries for tons of people you wouldnt think deserve half a million a year. Oh, and Disney pixar has more vice presidents than the population of Austria.
Worried that Toy story will be cookie cutter of pirates in the asset depts.

Quoted from screaminr:

Sometimes a good idea is worth repeating just in case someone hasn't read almost 2000 posts.

Well said- I hate the apron!

Quoted from screaminr:

Having a lid go up and down on a box doesn't make it innovative choosing a character to play as and being able to plunder off opposition players does make it innovative.

The Trunk on Houdini is pretty innovative.
And it goes up and down no problems!

Late notice on streams. I check thread and it says , starting in 15 min. At the time that was 2 hours old.
Little more heads up would be nice.

#2257 1 year ago

Great News! Love to see pictures of games being built. Guess they've been waiting on playfields to show up in bulk.
Time to sell some games and get this by Christmas for this house!

#2266 1 year ago
Quoted from Psw757:

So how long until these start hitting the distributors?

Patience, poor Eric needs some sleep.

#2290 1 year ago
Quoted from Hogbog:

Thanks for the kind words everyone. I'm pumped to see it coming to life on the assembly line. Can't wait for people to get the game. Maybe I'm a bit biased, but it's a damn fun game. Code is unmatched in depth and breadth. The production game that I played shoots like butter. Sign of good times when the first ball I play in the first game off the line I beat the grand champ score. Ended the game just shy of 1mil, and left my initials on there.
The flood gates are opening. Here we go!

Congratulations Eric!

Any news?
Can't believe how slow this process is, was really hoping to have mine for the Labor Day weekend. So much for that!

Quoted from dnaman:

Odd, to me as well. No FB or Pinside updates, not evens from the line.

You guys have seen pictures of that playfield , right?
Pinball takes time to build.

#2759 1 year ago
Quoted from Psw757:

Your kidding me, right?

Personally...I dont care if they build 1 a week.
Quality or quantity anyday of the week.
We've all waited this long, we will all get our machines....eventually.
