Quoted from YeOldPinPlayer:

New thread title MBr- ordered (date), arrived (date)

Good point - who will have the longest wait??

#152 4 months ago

Any updates on Australian deliveries anyone?

Apparently first week of June... not long...

#154 4 months ago

Got mine last Thursday. Had a long busy weekend. Hoping to set it up today. Looking forward to some relaxing pinball time.....

Quoted from Nihonmasa:

Nope, said I was surprised to see someone from the area that had a BOP 2.0 and that I've never been able to test it.

See, my French failed me even before I started...

I’m out of the club! #1021 arrived shortly before noon. What a beauty and she plays just like my original did.

We have 2 more weeks to wait.. Hopefully by the end of next week they will be in Aus.

I was told first week of June... that doesn't look likely, hopefully next week, most probably the following week :-0

I'm getting seriously concerned that I'm going to end up not getting one built for me. And then I will be pissed.

I have had a couple of cancellations so I have a few allocations left. Contact me if you are interested.

I keep on hearing about the dealer GAP not allowing refunds even for people who have been waiting waaaay too long while they could have easily moved their money and got it sooner. Just so unfortunate and something I'm def not forgetting for future purchases. It's not the consumer who should be impacted. Might teach some about preordering.

Hopefully they rethink their strategy like another distro did on this site and do the right thing. It's just absurd.

You'll be fine, they haven't sold out.

#163 4 months ago

My wait is over as well...

Just need to rearrange things now to get the topper on as well.

Of course, the question for all of us that have received ours is...what's next??

Quoted from RavenFan1:

Of course...

I guess the next will depend on opportunity. Most likely not a NIB.

#166 4 months ago

I put a deposit on a WOZ RR when they make the next small (200?) run of them. I hope my wallet is recovered before I get it! I also hope they don't pull some features out (the flying monkey) or I'll have to reconsider.

#167 4 months ago

Hoping to get a MMR next. Always wanted one but went with the last 2 LE’s first.

#168 4 months ago

Word is that mine is supposedly on the way to the distro, or about to be... Fingers crossed.

#169 4 months ago

I still love my AFMse and it gets a lot of play when people come over. Good choice!

I got my message to pay the balance today, and did so... One step closer! Unfortunately they need to delay shipping to me due to some logistical issues on my end, but hopefully soon!

#170 4 months ago

Glad to see that they are starting to arrive for everyone - including those waiting in Australia...

I'm now getting my mods (only a few - flippers, Frank's table, target decals).

I don't think I'll be getting anything else for a bit of time unless I get rid of something first otherwise I'll be getting a new wife!

I am in the same boat. Finally got the call to pay in full today so they’ll ship but have to delay for a couple of weeks. What’s 2 more weeks after 6 months. Looking back it was kind of neat following all the posts of people getting theirs and enjoying it so.

#172 4 months ago

Mine arrived today. Two holes from the fork truck operator. Lucked out. Everything was ok inside.

I finally got a shipping notification today. My pin is coming via fedex. How does that work with such a large item? The last time I bought a NIB pin, it came on an 18 wheeler and the delivery was scheduled (I think it was R&L carriers or something like that). I have received no contact what so ever from fedex. I only have a tracking number from my dealer. Do they just show up like they do when delivering something from amazon?

FedEx freight. Works just like R&L, except they don’t smash as much stuff as R&L they’ll call and schedule a delivery

When I worked at Fruit of the Loom we actually did lose a container at sea...no black t-shirts at Wal-Mart for a few months!! I hope that's not the case for you!!

Fedex is fine I have had 2 pins shipped via fedex freight. Check the tracking and once it’s at the terminal call them to schedule delivery. Who knows how long they’ll wait to contact you. I called after mine was received at the terminal and they delivered it the next day.

#182 4 months ago

This question may have been asked before, but what are the dimensions of the shipping box of the MBLE? I may go pick up my machine from the fedex terminal so I get it a day earlier.

Not all Australian Games are built yet

Only 1 container shipped so far a 40ft

Still another Container to come, they need to share games around for all who have been waiting

Just been advised July 7th Arrival via Singapore

Enjoy your game in Melbourne. I didn't get there when I went to Australia but I did get married on a yacht in Sydney Harbor...beautiful place...

#187 4 months ago

UPDATE I was gonna get mine yesterday but they wanted me to meet them like 2 miles away so I could pick it up from there. problem was, they loaded it on huge 18 wheeler that could never make it up my street. I have a Honda Civic not happening. thought it would come next day. still waiting

The eta for the first container - bugga - I put a late order in for an LE - I bet mine is in the second container <sniff>…

The shipping company needs to get a box truck with liftgate. If you can't get them to do that for some reason, then you could rent a local uhaul or truck from lowes. I think they are less than 30 bucks for a few hours.

BBBR heard that from a good source

Quoted from whitey:

BBBR heard that from a good source

If it is BBBr, then I am in for the NIB BBBrLE experience, because other than the wait, my MBrLE is awesome, no complaints. It dimples a bit, but I have been playing it a f-ton... RTU is a harder accomplishment than MOR, and AFM will always be one of my favorite 90’s machines, but MB holds a special place in my nostalgia too. In my mind, you can’t go wrong with any CGC made machine, and if they do BBBrLE for $8300 delivered, just take my money now.

Sorry guys - I'm a bit dumb with the abbreviations - what is the BBBr? Thanks.

Big Bang Bar remake

#195 4 months ago

Thanks! That's what I thought. I didn't realize it was that great of a machine. Good to know.

#196 4 months ago

As titles go, BBB is a campy sci-fi send-up of Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy’s “Restaurant at the End of the Universe”, set in a cosmic bar, complete with nude tube dancer, ball sucking alien locks, decent flow, great DMD animations, and the campy callouts... if Capcom only knew this title had the possibility to compete on the B/W scale and could possibly have set them up to take over pinball instead of Stern, they might have actually built it. As it was, a lot of people liked Capcom games, and Pinball Magic comes to mind. I love playing BBB, it is campy fun. Don’t know about longevity in a collection, other than usually, once someone is able to get one, they tend to not let them go.

Good stuff. Good luck getting one.

We do not think it is that great of a machine. Sure in a medium to large collection it fits well. A lot of people asking for it want to see it in an arcade. I think CGC would be better off remaking TAF, TOTAN or TOM. Just my opinion.

It’s certainly pretty, but I found it to be a complete snooze fest when I played it at the Silverball Museum a few times.

#200 4 months ago

I’ve played BBB several times and never had a “fun” game on it. I dunno... Maybe didn’t put enough plays on it, but it just didn’t have the fun factor for me that the B/W games have. I’m hoping for TOTANr or CVr next. BBBr doesn’t have the nostalgia for me, so I would personally skip it. I know BBB has its fans who would love to have one and for a lot of people it would be a fresh title.
