Received an offer to get in on RAZA, but frankly would have to have more info...actually at least see the pics and updates on the Blog to get an idea if it really is moving beyond concept drawings and a few parts..
Also if there would actually be production of Magic Girl... right now the whole Jpop productions still feels like an announcement/concept only... and it's now been over 2 years?
But do love his ideas and artwork... and of course his history...
Just would be afraid of ever getting my money back/an actual machine at this point...

Yes, dig the blue alien chick much more than the obvious attack from Mars similarities..
Nice to have hand drawn art, but am I the only one that doesn't think the BG is way too pink, very busy and actually ugly? (I can't stand the artwork on CV BTW.. mainly because of the similar intense color scheme)...

I too feel lucky to not have put money down on RAZA (for now.. ) but still want JJP to succeed...
By now, he really just needs to get product out of the door...
For those on the secret blog... maybe there's a way to mass revolt and strongly encourage him to work out a deal with Lyman and Stern.. just be a design company only and let the manufacturing/programming experts make it happen.. probably would lose money on MG (even at 40) but might break even with RAZA... at this point he really needs to make the pb community confident that he can accomplish something...

#916 5 years ago

Not to be such a skeptic... but does the blog post by Jpop really change anything?
I mean yeah.. he admitted being shamed by all the new "real" product and he basically needs to get his act together.. but an apology? an empty promise?
After this many years.. shouldn't buyers expect a more concrete/affirmative change in direction (Jpop has a epiphany) and immediately asks a professional to get his concept /parts out of the door... ala Stern?

#932 5 years ago

All good news.. if MG is really near ready and a real plan is specified production.. I would be happy to help him out... to get me one!

Well surprised to see those 3 games in what looks like finished prototypes..
Obviously light show and artwork are stunning but also lots of other pf eye candy..
Check out the 3 level ramps and whatever toy in the middle.

He should really get these going and solidify production.. and of course, offer way more MG to be available to public.. too few being made..

Hmm... very cool looking cabinets... not to be a debbie downer (I'd love to be on a MG and AIW if I was more confident they were actually going to be delivered some time soon)
but who knows when these pics were taken... last year? 2 years ago?... T-shirts on in a Chicago area unheated facility in the dead of winter?..

Would be nice to see more of a finished product..

Haven't tuned in for a bit..
but is now when we sing along to the Doors "The End"..
apologies ahead of time to owners who can't get their money back.. I was very close to being there.. several emails w/ Jpop... opportunity to get in on a RAZA owner that bailed... make a 1/2 deposit on AIW... waiting list for MG...
I'm disgusted with JPOP!

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?

Sorry to chime in and not be an owner (several times close and spoken with him personally) BUT I just don't see this being resolved until he actually is threatened with jail time or being sued for his personal assets... THEN.. he would turn over whatever worth/less assets he has for Stern to actually produce.. JPOP obviously just can't ever get his sh(# together to even come close to producing an actual game...

Artwork on MG does look great...as a concept... have Stern like a vulture seize the assets... push JPOP aside and finish the game with an experienced production/code team..I would be a buyer then..
