Quoted from chadderack:

Well this is going to be an odd post... a post about JPOP in the JPOP thread.

Have we heard anything new about RAZA or AIW let alone anything about John recently?

Yeah, when you add up the money and number of people hurt from RAZA and AIW, it is very significant. It's very odd that delivering a literal handful of half working Magic Girls made all that disappear.

#23352 2 years ago

I can only assume that your podcast with Special K was shelved because watching paint dry would have been more interesting.

That's because JPop actually claims that RAZA is next.

Quoted from PismoArcade:

Can't stand the guy either, but I can't believe people forgot that for a hot second he was J-Pop's public relations employee and was allowed to have a second account on Pinside under the name "ZidwarePR."

...true.

It was probably more due to the fact that a huge family argument (on my end) transpired during the recording and he didn't feel like going and editing it out.

Man you're really getting your licks in, eh buddy? Feels good, eh?

The info you keep giving is like open season. A family argument while recording? Did someone spill your bong water again?

#23357 2 years ago
Quoted from Cornelius:

The hate for Kaneda is ridiculous and immature. Even Robin hugged it out with him! It's time for Pinsiders to get over their anger towards the dude.

Quoted from vdojaq:

After my being on Special K's podcast, I have a different opinion of the guy than I used to. However, you sound like you are either infatuated with him or on his payroll.

Quoted from flynnibus:

Came here for the jpop... and all i see is someone pissing into the wind. Take the #freekaneda movement sonewhere else please.

Can we get back to talking about oysters now

Quoted from vdojaq:

No, my grouchy Father In Law instigated a fight with his daughter - which he was ever wont to do - and it got into the high decibels right by the room I was in Skyping with him. My FIL was a dick, but he's dead now, so oh well.

Or maybe I just suck, right? That's probably the reason!

It shouldn't. Those impacted have legal recourse. Some choose to take it (see Predator thread). Other's will say that throwing $$ at those filthy lawyers is just throwing good money after bad.

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Best oysters I've ever had is at this place called Tajima in San Diego. An oyster with a touch of ponzu sauce and thinly sliced scallions. Slurping them down was a religious experience!

I give you props for telling it how it is.

Now Zombie Yeti art is something to stop for!

The litigation is continuing, although not as adequately (in my view) as the Kevin Kulek case. But it is progressing, getting to deposition stage currently.

Quoted from Cornelius:

I guess you missed the "pissing into the wind" comment. And I really don't enjoy when people come into threads only to voice their displeasure at the things being discussed.

People aren't entitled to just discuss whatever they feel like it. The site has topic areas, and threads have topics. The site has rules on it too..

No Kaneda's history and status is not part of the current JPOP story.... except for the topic of game sales and market values.

Edit: and I see the mods have commented now too. Bonus.

All owners of JPOP's Zidware games, both physically built and vaporware, are part of the JPOP story.

Happy to see ZY recover some of what he is owed. That's a lot of $$$ for a plexiglass.

Time to move on - just listed my MG no reserve. No more "Are these even changing hands.... What's it worth..?" crap. We will have a marker in a week.

#23386 2 years ago

I heard JPOP is focusing his efforts on RAZA now. Trying to get a RAZA complete enough to have AP produce it. I'm sure it is just to keep the lawsuits at bay, but then again he did (sort of) deliver a MG. What are the chances we actually see JPOP "complete" a RAZA?

#23387 2 years ago

Its much easier to make a deal with a CM for 16-20 games than 125 games and that was when AP was looking to get into pinball. What does JPOP have to offer? AP has a team now and designer, why would they need him? Unless he comes up with CASH to finance the production run, you won't see AP working with JPOP again.

125 games is a heck of a BOM to finance.

I agree with you, just what I heard. AP recently said that they would not rule out building RAZA for John, but you're right that he would have to pay for it. We know that John is capable of getting financing through some company not willing to do their due diligence. Who knows. I would've said you were nuts a year ago if you told me people would get their MG"s. I have no doubt that John is working on building a "complete" RAZA, but I don't see him getting 125 done.

Good luck with the auction!

Maybe add in some links to the Pinball News article etc, so people who aren't in the loop can see some pictures of what's in the box. Could help with the sale.

Woohoo...... I currently own a Magic Girl for $10,200!

But to be honest Dave, I don't want it either! Just helping out.

You can't ask for a better seller. Good luck with your sale!

You guys are great - this auction is already more fun than I'd ever have with the game. Truth be told I hope it ends up and in the hands of someone like Applejuice or a mechanical guru collector who might be able to sort out the game properly - not stay hidden in a box. Fetch just enough to settle up with a frustrated wife and get 25 of these things working as they should...sounds great to me.

But then again, to quote Neil Young, "I'm a dreaming man...."

-Dave

#23399 2 years ago

Wish I saw this auction before: I'am already priced out... Would have loved to be the virtual owner of a MG pin, at least for one minute. But $10,400 is already beyond my means!

Curious to see the final price!

#23400 2 years ago

Yeah, Dave...put a few pix in there. It would sure help.
