Sadly, when asking about it, I got the news from Jaap that the magnum of champagne presented to the DP guys was not consumed at their afterparty , but brutally removed / stolen from the gifts table at the launch venue. I had attached a set of prototype steel bowling balls and an in& out burger sign.
The involved Lebowski crew were also presented on stage with a pre-production translite, pleased to receive one myself , and unpleased to report that that was also not present when i decided to go home, damn! Luckilly i did get a replacement to ease my pain, but someone had some very sticky fingers indeed last Saturday.
Now the balls mentioned are a bigger problem, they were prepped to be used in the prototypes, visually as real bowling-balls, and I spent a LOT of time getting these sorted, and finally coated to endure serious bashing...but they need testing, please..
..so if the" sticky one" reads this , feel free to send back the balls to the Dutch Pinball adress, no name no nothing , just a brown envelope or so and let DP try to perfect this great machine even more!
