Quoted from Strange:

When it comes to making PinGames JPOP doesn't fuck around!

Quoted from dkpinball:

I can't wait to hear the list of qualifications from the next guy who is convinced that he can walk in fix everything.
Walks on water, can shoot lasers from my eyes, encyclopedic memory, invented the internet, trillionaire, incapable of feeling pain, unlimited cell phone minutes, fun at parties...

Ok, I'll do it.

Quoted from Tharizdun:

They look like shady characters from bad 70's cop shows. Seriously.

That's not entirely fair. They could have easily been the nayer-do-wells on the good 70's cops shows too!

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Ok your right "what's the point" I won't post info in this thread anymore as it has clearly upset you! I will keep any new info on the private owners group.... After all its not like this is the "JPOP update thread"

Unless you're just being sarcastic....Lighten up Francis. We are all intrigued.

Or is it really all about Pin Chili?

Quoted from Skins:

You're going to cause the, "pinball isn't an investment"group to shit themselves with talk like that.

If it is an investment it looks like the risk/reward sword just cut down the JPoopers. Is it only allowed to be an investment if it increases in value?

#7887 4 years ago
Quoted from Skins:

Considering that was a reply to a comment by someonelse made about the financial value of the machines, perhaps you should ask them.

I have no doubt that some jumped on JPOP as an investment. And therefore they shouldn't be incredulous that it went south. Investments often do. Pissed, sure. Who wouldn't be?

#7891 4 years ago
Quoted from Skins:

As stated before, ask the poster that made the comment about the pins value. Perhaps we should move back on topic, yes?

I have no question to whatever poster you keep referring to. I responded to your post, which implied that people that didn't consider pins investments were incontinent. Now, feel free to have the last word, but let it go already.

Wow wow wow. That video would make me concerned if I was an owner regardless of all the other issues! Theatre of the absurd just got pathetic.

Quoted from swampfire:

FWIW, I think the color palette and artwork are fantastic. I collect inexpensive but awesome art, and I was kind of disappointed that your short run of prints had sold out.

This + a million. Some dudes aren't afraid of a little pink and purple. It's a beautiful playfield ZY, and I'd love to own one.

Quoted from wcbrandes:

What are you talking about Aurich what secrets and bullshit? The game is out west, John was suppose to handle getting it home regardless of an announcement being made. Sounds like he is making arrangements. You guys really need to chill. There is no conspiracy theories here just a few that would like to make it seem like there is. I re posted what I said from the beginning and nothings changed. I hope that makes everyone comfortable.

Bill, this experience, along with over 15,000 posts, should clearly indicate that some people around here just aren't comfortable without a giant stick in their ass.

I applaud your efforts.

If you believe in the expression " it takes money to make money" than it follows that more economic opportunities fall to those with more money. If you believe in the expression "equality of opportunity" than it follows that people with more $ have more opportunity. Re Distribution of wealth is the current "solution" to that. Like it or not. If not, then please share your solution to the "opportunity gap". Please do it in PM so as not to derail the "JP is a douche" thread.

Quoted from toyotaboy:

that patent was filed in 1998, and design patents are only good for 14 years unless renewed (which also require improvements on the original design). I remember talking to John, and how he was designing a new ball trough in case the William's patented trough didn't lapse in time.

Kaneda's tro is the tro of the future.

Quoted from JeffTaylor:

I got to "play" Magic Girl today. I put that in quotes because it isn't really play-able due to ball-trap issues. I could start a game and bat the ball around for a while, but ramp shots would often get stuck in the upper right corner where the ball moves from one ramp the other. I don't think that will be a difficult spot to ball-proof, but that wasn't the only one. I can confirm what you have all seen in the Special-K videos, unfinished code, missing hardware, etc. and I'll add one small thing I noticed, a stand up target that can't be hit! It's under the ramp on the left side. The only approach is from the orbit. There is no direct shot from either flipper and no way to bounce it in there either. See photo.

Is this a second NYC area Magic Girl? Honestly, K's machine doesn't have any ball hang ups to speak of. There are potential hang-ups, in terms of where the ball could end up if you could actually get to certain parts of the play field. But in terms of what's accessible, K's plays smooth.

That (backwards?) target is hilarious. Maybe RD is right and it's facing the wrong way? Otherwise ROTFLMAO!

Quoted from Mr68:

Me as well. In one of his videos it shows the ball falling off the Mystic Ring area that didn't have a guard rail I assume and falling into a trap area where he had to fish it out by hand. I'm pretty sure he said there are ball traps just as the other experienced person did. (JeffTaylor)
I'll see if I can find that video.
Edit: At about the 7:50 minute mark of Playfield Overview Part 1.
» YouTube video

That video does demonstrate a ball hang up, BUT, that can only happen via the Mystic Ring "Power" area, which - surprise! - is currently inaccessible. Impossible to get there with no ramp diverters or magnets etc.

Freaking JPop....

#22796 2 years ago

Sounds like every single one will be unique. A prototype in every pot!

#22906 2 years ago

If they're worth $20-30 (to 40?)K now, what would they be worth if they'd been delivered as promised: complete, working and "Making Pinball great again"(!)?

The mind boggles.

In this case, it's the story behind the game driving the collectability. Which is warped.

Everyone should just walk out en masse as soon as Jpop is introduced or says anything. Of course then you won’t get to learn about how they’ve gone beyond quad manufacturing and why pinball is so easy for them.

Sounds like a good trade to me. Seriously, aren’t the days of “come, here us wax poetic about how great we are at building pinballs 9-12 months before we have anything to show or sell” over?
