Quoted from YKpinballer:
Hold on, hold on... hold the F**K on. This project has run as a ponzi scheme for the past 4 years. It has been taken over by a person with NO pinball manufacturing experience that put a career ponzi scheme professional as their finance manager. WHAT do you want people to decide whether they are IN or OUT OF? You are so blinded by the small amount of work you helped out with on this project you can't see what the hell is happening here.
Focus on the present? That's the dumbest, most gullible thing anybody can do. Focus on the past and what it means for the future. Make smart decisions. Don't focus on the present, that is how people burn you. Over. And over. And over.
This morning I focused on the past, which was very sobering, poring over my MG and BHZA/RAZA records (unlike Jflop, I keep scrupulous records)- purchase agreements, payments, statements, Zidware's bank account information etc; the works. I scanned these and emailed them to the attorney Zane Smith this morning. On 12th June there is a hearing to add the new plaintiffs (including me) to the Zamost case vs Zidware. So, game on, Mr & Mrs Popadiuk and Zidware. See you in court, and will see your accounts and all the gory detail, finally. We will find out how you burned a cool million bucks, for the machine we've seen pretty pictures of today.
That said, if Pintasia built MG in the next 4 years, I might buy one, when it is built. No pre-order nonsense or even worse legal agreement nonsense, however. That ends now, and I hope no-one is dumb enough to sign up to further vapour, losing their consumer rights in the process! Amazing arrogance in that agreement IMO.
I committed to buying MG in August 2011, and here we are, finally, now, seeing some photos of it. It's like Jflop went to sleep in 2013, on his own patented trip to wonderland, no doubt. Well, some progress now, I guess. I just hope the 'en-cheapening' of the machine to a cost-effective manufacture doesn't ruin it. But clearly, obviously, it's not worth $15,995.00, however nice the plastic ramps and electromagnets are. And it won't be the originally envisaged machine, whatever that was, if and when it's finally built.
By contrast, I bought a mint refurbed RFM a couple of days ago for £3k, a machine I've always wanted (in vgc). A true contrast from the Jplop stuff, and modern pinball pricing, which let's face it is like a property price bubble.
