All ... a few things:
1) PPS have been going thru various game requests/interests/contacts on Monday 10/22 having returned from Expo on Sunday (as you can imagine there are alot), requests for information, etc for LE's. We will be sending an update on the next steps for the process. We have gone thru the Pinball Expo Order Forms, as well as the various Contact and LE Pre-Reserves that we have received over the weekend. The good news is that it looks that although we are very close to our 'allocation' of LE's, that all the requests that we have for LE's fall within the total LE's that we have to offer ... IE we should be good to get you an LE. We will certainly strive to find every missing request if any, etc, but please hang tight until Tuesday.
2) We have queried all of the distributors around the total LE's and the good news is that the math adds up! Total allocated LE's to distributors adds up to 1000. I also expect as we are just a couple of days into the process that they may be some people that do not respond for deposits, or have tried to order from multiple distributors, etc, so there may be some slots opening once the deposit windows close which is generally less than a week for most distributors.
3) Pricing ... we are working closely with all distributors as we are wanting as many of these games at $7995 (not counting any 'special' game # upcharges which are at the discretion of the distributors). While we cannot restrict pricing beyond certain parameters, it is always helpful to have feedback of any wide variations from this. Clearly each country adjusts for various taxes and other fees as required. We really hope that the distributors will keep to that goal of 'fair' price.
4) Game #'s ... we will be starting to handle game number requests now. Game #'s can be requested and there may be an additional fee thru the distributors for these, and more so for 'special' numbers (low #'s, etc). Please contact your MMR distributor for which you ordered the game to see if your number is available. We do not endorse game number transfers between customers, and if we find any instances we may cancel the associated order.
More will be coming soon, there are many topics we will update. Any major questions can be sent to firstname.lastname@example.org as it is difficult to find all the places for MMR posts to read and answer so we will try to consolidate answers (i.e. don't expect a immediate reply).
