    Quoted from Chalkey:

    I think saying Mirco is making playfields others are producing is a bit misleading. CPR has said they are "collecting orders" for sorcerer for 2 years plus and no movement on the website. They have about 30 playfields listed in their preorder page, does that mean nobody else gets to touch them? IIRC CPR put up Seawitch after John said he's making them, something that was lamented in that thread.
    In my opinion what I think happened was CPR sat on these for years with no movement, Mirco decided to make them and CPR saw this and put them into production on the sly in order to hurt Mirco's sales. They were never listed along with the other titles currently on CPRs production page. Then Mirco gets all spun up, makes some ridiculous claims, John goes after his livelihood and here we are.
    No excuses made for anyone, just saying I dont think there's room for anybody to get all high and mighty and playfield mfgs seem pretty cutthroat. Now someone go make stars.

    Hello 800 pound gorilla. Yes it was f'ed up with the empty threats from mirco and it would definitely make me think hard about buying one.

    With that said anyone who down voted this post (on the merits of this one post) must have not been on a "list" for years and years waiting for a damn playfield. Since _____ has a "intent" posted does that mean no one else is supposed to touch it. I will buy a quality playfield I need from John, CPR or Donald Duck as far as that goes. Hell I even obligated to buy 2 just to get the numbers up to hopefully go into production.

    John, everyone here knows who's good people and who isn't. you have been exonerated, keep doing what your doing and hopefully this will all fade away.

    I have 2.5 hours to post, while Mirco sleeps. No real apology, kind of figured that one out early. No announcement to kiss my ass as a public apology at TPF. The good news is the final yellow opaque arrow can be done in 4+ weeks with a minimum 1000 quantity order. So on with big production numbers of Seawitch playfields finally this spring. I talked with Mike at CPR & they are not going to do me a Mirco Special & run the same title that year. For Mirco Playfields after this fiasco I never want to work with him! If I know Mirco, CPR, or others are doing a playfield title it will not be done by me. Sorcerer is a example, why would I produce a new one even though I can. Not good for the hobby!

    Quoted from greatwichjohn:

    This is the last day of me posting about this on the thread (Feb. 5 Midnight Atlantic Time).

    If only that were true...

    Let it go.. the guy was busted for all to see. Your continued droning on about this only makes you look bad. It's out there - let people see it and learn from it. You're just spinning in place making noise. Time to move on.

    I would have never paid Mirco prices for their "bronze" quality work anyway. I was excited about Black Hole playfields until I saw the blurred finished products.

    greatwichjohn , it was my Lightning backglass that Mike Halse had scanned and got the files off to you. He was supposed to do the same with my Dracula backglass and get you the scanned files but the S.O.B. has gone AWOL and I am out my glass! Go figure.

    you struggle with telling time ?

    Mike Halse phone line works over the years. Never returns my calls. Please contact me, & I will send you out a Lightning glass + another Stern title I do.
    Good news on Seawitch playfields yellow arrow so the end is not a total disaster. Count down less than 2 hours to go silent.

    I actually think I have found a way to reach him through Linkedin

    Signing off on this thread. Hope Mirco learns something from all of this. I am sure he will pump out lots of playfields. Hopefully not the same titles!

    How long have you been working on these, John? And still missing inserts?
    I was on the list for your Seawitch playfield years ago, hard to believe these have not come to fruition (5 years now?)
    I do not condone Mircos jerkish behavior, but c'mon, man, you had more reasons for delays than I care to remember.

    he has signed off form the thread

    Probably best to send him a PM if you want to be critical or ask questions, rather than attempt baiting him to reply for the sake of wanting him to go against his word that he would let the topic be and get on with the positive side of working on pfs.
