Magic Girl was initially just 13 games according to RGP.

#569 5 years ago
Quoted from frolic:

Hold on, you're saying a paying customer has been blocked from the blog for asking questions?

Apparently everyone is supposed to individually call JPop to find out whether there are 13, 17, 20, 40, 50 or some other number of MGs being produced. Sounds much more sensible than an email blast or forum post.

#615 5 years ago

Have you guys seen playfield layouts for MG and RAZA at least?

#624 5 years ago

It feels like those boutiques with the earliest head start did the least to capitalize on it.

Thanks for posting those pics.

Quoted from Robotoes:

However, I don't really get the "i haven't gotten a response for a refund in two months what should I do" people. You can find a lawyer who can write a demand letter, and I'd say 80% of the time that solves your problem and gets the ball rolling. Either wait, or don't.

Why hire a lawyer when you might get the same effect for free from a simple Pinside post?

Quoted from iceman44:

The point is the NDA would cost HIM a fortune to enforce and where is that $$$ gonna come from.

Game 7 pre-orders.

#2618 5 years ago

Is this thread going to turn into food porn? I think I'd like that.

#2663 5 years ago
Quoted from ChrisVW:

Kind of a dick move for John to tweet a photo of the guy's full name and address. I'm sure Cody Miller in Jacksonville would agree.

I'm guessing it's safe to say he's not using advanced photo/watermark tracking software to protect the NDA.

Or maybe it's a trap.

#2924 5 years ago
Quoted from Baiter:

There are more rare high demand games, and nothing approaches $35k, so there's no logical reason to assume this would reach that height unless the economies of the world go into hyperinflation, and even then it's not really today's $35k. Given the $17k MG loan for 5 years with a final value of $20k, that is a 3% rate of return on your investment.

Kingpin does.

#3019 5 years ago
Quoted from jwilson:

Finally it's getting interesting again. Lawyers attack!

The point is that Ice is going to do it with the owners' interests in mind (getting the games built!), not trying to pad his pocketbook.

#3166 5 years ago
Quoted from ChrisVW:

Who is Chad K?

Chad Keller, a high end restorer in St. Louis.

Quoted from Aurich:

Who would be dumb enough to give him $17k right now?

Maybe JPop is scanning the news for recent lottery winners. There's gotta be one or two suckers remaining, right?

Quoted from YKpinballer:

Ya, it's a cautionary tale for sure. i think AIW will get off the ground judging from these photos. But I have decided I'd rather have 4-5 pins today than pay 21k (Canadian $) for AIW and possibly wait 3 or 4 years with no info, hoping the project is funded by games 4 and 5... it's all too big a gamble for me.

What if I were to tell you that AIW will have a Liger Saw?

I suggest a group at expo to confront him. No secret where his shop is at all. If hes not there just check all the star bucks in the out lying areas.

#4258 4 years ago
Quoted from ChrisVW:

Ice, how many people do we need to get together to form a "class"? I'm on board.

I don't think there are any hard minimums or maximums for a federal case, but I could be wrong. See this for a start:


Lots of good case law on class formation, including some from Posner that would apply to 7th Circuit cases.

#4353 4 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

John and I agreed to talk at least WEEKLY, with updates and whatever help I can provide him from a legal, tax and financial standpoint. I'll pass on whatever info he gives me.

Are you going to update your IRS Circular 230 disclosure so that only pinball manufacturers can rely on your emails as tax advice?

#5118 4 years ago
Quoted from rosh:

I don't think either one of them failing would have had massive impact on boutiques, but the combination of them both teetering on disaster, and then sprinkle on top of that MMr delays, JJP delays, the TBL sideshow with Phil, and all of a sudden you have a wave go across the ecosystem that leaves behind a sentiment of "no way in hell will I pre-order", which will have a significant dampening on boutiques.

Don't forget VD:

Quoted from wesupchurch:

I also won't sugarcoat the fact that the Pinball Gremlins project is not on schedule.

#5258 4 years ago
Quoted from zr11990:

Ice, would John allow people to come in and help assemble games? I know he is not even that far yet but if he were to get that far Im sure there would be some who would love to be part of the process and help get these games together. I would certainly do it IF I were allowed to buy a game once they were all assembled.

If you'll recall, for an extra $1000 JPop or Ben Heck would deliver your unassembled game and help you assemble it.

#5263 4 years ago
Quoted from gprotein:

Ben Heck? Hell Yeah!! JPop? No thanks.

The Ben option: "OK customer, let's get this thing built!"

The JPop option: "OK, let's build this pin right after we remodel your house so that it complements the artwork of RAZA."

Quoted from jarjarisgod:

Then he could sleep in the cabinet.

To create a comfortable bed, first line it with shredded NDAs.

#5542 4 years ago
Quoted from GLModular:

You had best read back through all of this before you decide to throw your hat into the ring.
Here are the basic things you'll need to know:
You won't get a prototype game in which to develop the software code on. John won't let anything out of his sight, even if it's stuff that will be "junked".
You will not be communicating with anyone else involved with Zidware, just John. So if someone else makes (or convinces John to make) changes that affect your work, don't expect to be able to bring up dialogue with the other parties to help support your ideas or ways of doing things.
Anything you send John to "test", you will likely not get any feedback or anything resembling "test results" or any valuable information in which to judge the success or failure of anything you are doing. You will also likely likely be asked to make a million revisions, even after he has signed off on your work.
You will likely be pushed very hard to "meet deadlines" that John will then blow off at the very last minute, causing you to need to wear a hat for subsequent weeks to cover the bruises you inflict on yourself from banging your head into the nearest brick wall.
You will likely come out of the scenario with a couple of neat t-shirts, possibly owed money, and a negative attitude towards doing any form of contract work for anyone else in the pinball business.
I think that about covers it.
Still want to give it a try?

What kind of vacation time does it offer?

If you want to pay $2K for it, it is no prank.

#5953 4 years ago
Quoted from D1P:

Correction: $1995.00

Don't forget shipping!

#6033 4 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

There won't be any scorched earth because there will be no lawsuits of any kind. It's just not reality, what lawyer would waste his time on such nonsense and who would pay him? Nobody gets a pinball machine and only the lawyers get paid.
That said, I just got off the phone with John, spent the last hour and a half with him.
There is a ton of misinformation out there.
He's not moving at the pace everybody would like, which he fully acknowledges, but there is a ton of stuff to show and reveal that will be done by opening up the Blogs on each project to everybody so they can see for themselves, and him adding additional stuff to it.
News flash, John has an accounting firm that handles all the tax issues and reporting. He does have the cash to build our pins with the remaining deposit money due. I told him to use me as a resource from that standpoint and he plans to take advantage of it.
We talked about firing himself from the $15 an hour work that an assistant does and focusing on what matters. That is easier said than done for a non business guy. He's had an assistant that he had to get rid of because she got nothing done timely!
I'm an excellent judge of character and John is the farthest thing from a scammer, con artist, etc. That's MY judgement after speaking with him for that length of time.
John is a good guy that gets his feelings hurt and that's just the way it is, I told him what I think and how he should react to the negativity and criticism, including from myself. Don't retreat, embrace it head on, full disclosure and "don't let the bastards wear you down".
There are people working and helping to get things done. John's no dumbass as a designer and there is a shitload of stuff to conquer, i.e. JJP Like Jack, he's not the master of communication or thinking things through.
John and I agreed to talk at least WEEKLY, with updates and whatever help I can provide him from a legal, tax and financial standpoint. I'll pass on whatever info he gives me.
Anybody can feel free to call him, don't be intimidated, he's a great guy.
It's time to put the pitchforks down, you will get an incredible pinball machine at the end of the day.
For the record, he hasn't paid himself in months and offered to allow me to verify that claim.

I can't believe he's blown you off after only a month or so.

#6038 4 years ago

JPop needs to realize that the Ice conversations were the best thing to happen to him. One representative to deal with to quell the storm, to prevent people from looking into filing suits, police reports, etc.

#6192 4 years ago
Quoted from Mr68:

just like any investment loss.

The million dollar question, and I'm guessing the IRS would call it a non-deductible personal expense.

#6210 4 years ago

Finally read the article. It briefly discusses equity and non-equity crowdfunding, and then only goes into detail about the tax treatment of equity crowdfunding. Unless JPop is sending out annual K-1s, you don't have an equity stake in Zidware and this article wouldn't be of much help. Maybe the theft loss deduction would come into play, but that's a different topic.

Sad that the discussion is coming to this.

#6213 4 years ago

I can't wait to see the artwork on the Zidware stock certificates.

#6216 4 years ago
Quoted from Sjsilver:

Will the stock certificates feature a leopard saw?

Liger Saw!

#6221 4 years ago
Quoted from lllvjr:

Good to know u can make his life hell with the IRS when u have had enough... I highly doubt he is 100% on the up and up with them

No. People are talking about deducting their preorder money on their tax returns. Likely to invite an audit, IMO, and won't have any effect on JPop.

#6254 4 years ago
Quoted from Mike_J:

Would Dean run the four corners if he were down by 10 with 3 minutes left in the 2nd half?

Yep, to force overtime.

#6375 4 years ago
Quoted from Mr68:

This past Tuesday Jpop was served with my demand letter via courier, signature required.

Quoted from rai:

I've had someone tell me he doesn't even respond to certified letters, just throws them in the trash.

You forgot the third "make my letter sound official" trick - notarizing it!

#6396 4 years ago
Quoted from Mr68:

as representative of the owners group.

Quoted from Mr68:

I'm withdrawing my official complaint against Jpop and will excitedly continue on with Magic Girl and RAZA.
I cannot and will not explain further. No private emails please.

I hope you're at least explaining things to the private owners group on FB.

#6442 4 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

RD, I'm heading out to throw down several Coronas at the Lodge Hospitality Party. I'll tip one just for you. Actually, sending you that case of beer on the Jpop bet I lost to you is at least one of the few highlights I can look back on when its all said and done.
Btw, the Master's involves people hitting a white ball with a stick thing on what is called a golf course. It's not rugby, so there is no ripping your nutsack apart but its still pretty entertaining.

At least you got rid of those awful Coronas.

If you win the next bet, RD will send Fosters.

#6497 4 years ago

Pretty sure toyotaboy was joking abut the Wired reveal.

#6602 4 years ago

Why does anyone believe a word kaneda says? I'll believe it when jpop declares that he's hired a d-bag from New York for marketing help.

#6645 4 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

I should add that we shouldn't forget that Jpop's warranty is voided if the game is ever put on location.

I'm sure kaneda will handle repairs at these locations.

#6816 4 years ago

Don't leave us hanging; post a pic of your art sample.

#7023 4 years ago

That number is very dangerous to be public.

We use the phrase "great harm" in this thread.

#7072 4 years ago

Sadly, I think a fisheye photo of an art sample would have been more confidence-inspiring. Thanks for posting.

#7118 4 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

I feel terrible and embarrassed when I'm a week late delivering my translites because they're delayed at the printer or something. And I don't take a dime from people until they're ready to ship, I don't even have their money, just my promise to take care of things as fast as I can. Makes me feel like a jerk. I can't believe Jpop gets up every day, wanders into his studio (which I hear is fucking huge) and starts dreaming out his fantasy half naked cosplay girl bowling game, while asking people to buy him coffee so they can hear his wisdom. (You know who you are, sorry, had to throw that one in there.)
It's just pinball. We all love it, but it's not the freaking Mona Lisa. This isn't a 40 year epic journey of a master craftsman. It's a guy who was a junior designer at Williams trying to live out his dream of still making pinball, promising people the moon (I haven't even said a word yet about the ridiculous bullshit he promised people was going to be animated on the LCD screen at Expo, you guys all know that's utter bollocks right?) and meanwhile doing his pinball designer masturbation into piles of your cash.
I'd be afraid to show my face at Expo if I was Jpop. I'd be ashamed of what I was doing. Dude is so self unaware though that instead he waltzes in with empty freaking cabinets, with art that he doesn't have permission to use, a translite he won't let people take photos of, and then has the gall to tell people to just check out how bad ass the *hinges* are! Because that's the problem collectors of ultra rare pinball have, they're so tired of folding down the heads on their precious games with standard hinges.
Sorry, I'm starting to rant here. But he's giving boutique pinball a bad name. He's the poster child for irresponsible overpriced bullshit. If he ever ships all the Magic Girls and I haven't keeled over from old age I will personally donate $100 to Pinside. Feel free to remind me, I've lost a bet on here before and donated happily. My money feels rock solid safe to me.

Your $100 appears to be safe.

#7507 4 years ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

Really if you look at any successful startup:
Apple rented a garage (easily less than 200 square feet).
Orange county choppers started in his basement (pushed finished bikes up a ramp to get them out)
West Coast choppers - Jesse james rented out a corner of a service garage
Pinball life - started in his garage
Day one pinball was built in Terry's existing warehouse space

Skip the start-up and go straight to giant corporation status:

The idea that the big manufacturer would cover JPop's sunk costs reminds me of the pawn shop that pays full sentimental value:


#7874 4 years ago

Wow, this thread is amazing...
I really feel bad after reading this for months now...
but when are we going to see JPop do the "perp walk" in Chicago?

The angry mob might just stuff him into one of those RAZA cabinets.

#7964 4 years ago
Quoted from chessiv:

It's really hard to quantify. But when everything else in the game is good it must be the software. I want to love the game.

My take is that the first two mulitiballs are too easy to get, and the third is too tough. After you've used your two multiballs, you end up shooting the left orbit over and over again. The modes aren't worth completing from a points and risk standpoint.

#8199 4 years ago
Quoted from toyotaboy:

Scary thing if (when?) JPOP fails, he won't ever be able to go to another pinball show again, he won't be able to design anything pinball related (for profit anyway) because his reputation is so tarnished. It's sort of like the tv shows where black hat hackers lose all privileges to internet or even computers, which is complete torture because that's their whole life.

Not scary at all; it's exactly what he deserves.

#8323 4 years ago

#10572 4 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

My personal take? The best revenge would be people getting their games, and John being left out in the cold during the whole process. If you want to sue him go for it. I wouldn't try and talk you out of it. But maybe there's something more here than just burning the house down. Maybe there isn't. A Q&A session with Pintasia would be a great next step.

I think jpop's credits for past games should be scrubbed from the Pinside archive. Just credit "Bally/Williams" or similar instead.

#10603 4 years ago
Quoted from pezpunk:

Ok that takes care of concern number 122. What about concerns number 1 through 121, and concerns 123 through 999?

999 problems but a bitch ain't one.

Rarehero's post:

Quoted from Rarehero:

Someone who shall remain anonymous who has John's ear told me something quite telling. John said "I've never made this much money from pinball in my life!". Just hearing that ...."made this much money" ...made my skin crawl. He thought it was his....not for the project. His.
IMO, he got addicted to the cash & probably still has a lot of it. It's not his to keep. Hopefully audits will happen to bring out the truth as to where the money went. If he has ANY of it, it must be returned.

Quoted from LapsedGamer:

Yup Rockwell Collins. Its funny reading through all the disclosures, one guy had an idea for mounting a mini gun on front of a plane to eliminate bird strikes, that had a DENIED next to it, but for the most part if its a well thought out patentable idea they give you the benefit of the doubt on the submittal, it is a lot harder to get to the next stage of course, but people do every week.

A shotgun would make sense.

#16199 4 years ago
Quoted from pinballrockstar:

So...if nobody gets a pinball machine, why do we ALLOW john to still be spending our money?
I mean , it's obvious the machines don't get build, if there is only $5 left, freeze it and give all the buyers a few cents back?
Maybe there is 100.000 left? Do we have proof?
Why do we allow john to still tinker on with our money??
He asks zombie yeti for more artwork? If that is true we should tie him to a pole and throw poop at him...

Quoted from John_I:

At this point things have gotten so crazy I have to wonder if this in not a case where the guy actually is bonkers and not in touch with reality. Rather than the conspiracy theories of him doing this or that to impress the courts or bring in new money, do you think it might be the simplest reason of all? His wife is on the board of directors, has anyone talked to her about this? Bill maybe?


Quoted from Erik:

He's thinking, "where my 3 dolla coffee at?!?" Followed by, "how do I pull off double layered color contrasting socks teamed with the freshest new yellow sneaks and not clash with my orange home perm?"

"Collectively, the former employees and executives we spoke to paint a picture of a business plagued by management dysfunction and with no coherent strategy other than to try and sell or float the business in an IPO."

No one said anything? Let him talk about how he makes pins? Let him bid, buy and load games with nothing said with his friend right there $2K in the hole?
Sorry, I confront people who stole from me. I don't do anything illegal, but I let them know what trash they are and that they owe me.

Quoted from blue95:

WTF is a Bloomin' Onion? Never seen one in Australia.

You were probably too drunk on Australia's finest beverage export, Foster's, to notice.

Quoted from Homepin:

cut it out - no self respecting Australian would drink that rubbish, that's WHY it's 'exported' - LOL

You were probably too full of kangaroo meat to notice how drunk he was on Foster's.

Little johnny stole a million from this community based on lies and now little johnny and American Pinball have joined forces to steal more money from this community. UN-FREAKIN BELIEVABLE!!!!!

It's not Robin's job to patrol every bit of harmless speech posted on the forum. Relax. 99% of pinside knows the Jpop story, and the rest who don't will hear about it at Expo.

Quoted from vdojaq:

Look, not starting a fight, but you just contradicted yourself. "Zidware is bankrupt now." Then "if the other creditors forced him into Involuntary bankruptcy".
So, there has been no bankruptcy filing by JPop, or a forced bankruptcy by creditors, right?

He should have said "Zidware is insolvent now."

Ewwwwww. Good thing it is corporate policy for all deeproot employees and contractors to wear appropriate attire at all times.

Do you provide the shackles or is it up to the employee to purchase them?
