Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

Breaks down to him spending 300% of budget really. Expected to take 1.5 years and require x whitewoods. It will end up taking 4.5 years and 3 (???) x whitewoods. You don't want our man thrown out on the street do ya? This approach will probably factor into his decision of how many RAZA's to make when that time arrives.

No I want him to succeed. I'm just being silly

I sure hope JPOP has some serious life insurance - Knock on wood he remains healthy.

Investing money in one singular person for so long seems very risky.
Without a company or team behind him that could take over and complete the projects, everything rests entirely on him.

Risky business. Good luck to all involved.

60 Magic Girls ain't shit. Come on now.

JPop should produce far more than that. Even if there needed to be some exclusivity with this pin you could have that with 500 made. They should cost 12K with partial refunds of course to those that paid more. To the original buyers bitching about more games being produced they should definitely be rewarded with something special added on top of the rest of the machines, like a rare alternate translite and cabinet art.

Zombie Adventureland needs to get bumped up too. Make that a cool 1000 units.

Want to wait years when production starts...it might take years to crank out 60!

Well obviously when you are dealing with these games its a very patient endeavor. The trade off is getting a one of a kind machine right? If you need something fast go get a goddamn Stern. I'm sure The Walking Dead is going to be a work of blazing originality... I'm so sure...

We don't even know if this guy can build 1 completed unit and you want him to make 500 or 1000!?!?!

#257 5 years ago

Boutique shop loses its name when u pump out 1k games of one title. And his production room looks like it fits 8 games at a time!

#258 5 years ago

Yeah, extra production of these games should get contracted out. If Jersey Jack can start getting their production problems in order it should definitely be them.

Charging 17K for 60 machines whose after market price is going to shoot through the roof right after release is just stupid. And only so many people are even going to be able to play the darn thing. It's just a bad idea.

#259 5 years ago

Jjp will not be doing jpop games...unfortunately

We didn't know if Bill Gates could create Microsoft out of his garage after dropping out of college.

We didn't know that Steve Jobs would have created the highest value company in the history of the world after his previous failures.

I think Jpop can build whatever amount of pins he has in mind. Just saying.

Some people have vision, others don't…...

Some people make better workers then Buisness men! It's like Michael Jackson surrounding himself with people who just never tell him no, or stop , or that's enough.. He will just keep going and going... The things going to be a piece of art for sure..

There's a difference between designing and building.

I have no doubt Jpop can design a game.

Can he build one? Then mass produce?

#265 5 years ago

I'm not sure if Jpop has the capacity to mass produce. But for sure he can design games.
My favorite is still CV. It's just different to any other games.

Building is easier, can always contract it out, like PPS did. And in this case I'm sure he is going to use "contract labor".

But yes, he will show the progress at expo and I predict that people will be slobbering all over themselves to jump in. And I predict he will be able to build whatever numbers he sells. Who knows, that's just me, but before they come out, its easy to say he can't do it, nothing is guaranteed.

#267 5 years ago

I'm in on JPop's ZA. I too, like many others are anxiously awaiting for updates on this game.

I love what JPop has done in the past. And I think he'll knock it out of the park with ZA.

lets hope so, and lets hope the people at expo don't forget the people here trying to find out what's going on there too.

#270 5 years ago

Hum diddy diddy fellas!

Starting to get jiggy

#271 5 years ago

I feel like we're waiting to hear the Federal Reserve announce what they're doing with interest rates. The JPOP bond market seems to pricing in no significant annoucement. I'll take that position but I very much hope I'm wrong and the market explodes upward.

Com'on JPOP...

Talked to someone who was at JPops yesterday and still no working MG...let alone RAZA

Quoted from lllvjr:

Stern is the other obvious option. I see no reason a boutique shop whose expertise is designing games to waste time and effort on manufacturing them too. I can guarantee more than 60 people are willing to buy a MG, and more than 100 ZA... Stern can build those entire runs in less than a week, but will take eons for Jpop.

Well sure if you are willing to settle for a bash toy and magnet combo.

#277 5 years ago

Remember when JPop was referred to by some douche as "Jay Pop A Boner"? I was like WTF? This ain't no John Holmes. This is John Popadiuk!!

What does that have to do with the manufacturing process?

Cabinets with steep angles, looks legit. I would assume those are stuffed with at least real whitewoods if not full art?

I'm heading over there tonight. I will take pics of what I can. Excited to see what JPop and others have to show!

We need a liveblog of the speech like they do during the Apple releases.
