Quoted from PtownPin:

On December 26th my distributor requested final payment for my matching LE (in the mid 500's). At the time he said the game was being shipped within the next couple weeks. I haven't heard anything yet so I doubt it ships on time, but only time will tell....CGC makes a great product, but they are rarely on schedule...

Similar story for me except my PIF date was 11/26 and have a higher matching number.

Quoted from PAPinballer:

I have actually thought about this. I also have a long flat driveway and am not sure if they would be willing to wheel it all the way to the garage door. How do you know which side you can lay the machine down on? It's not clear from looking at the boxes in the pictures I've seen. They all say "this side up". Also do you take the box off of the pallet before putting it in your truck?

1 of the sides of CGC box will state "Do Not Truck From This Side" from what I have seen on the MBre unboxing thread. Also have seen the same on Stern boxes.

Edit Add: This in addition to all of the "This Side Up" messaging.

Quoted from indypinhead:

Only one side is marked "truck from this side"
It's the side that the lower cabinet bottom is.

corrected, thanks.

Quoted from seenev:

Yeah. My distributor really had no idea when I might expect to get mine. I feel like there must be a better way to handle this.

Having some level of transparency on the pre-order between factory/dist/customer would greatly improve the CX around this process. It would also possibly change the tone/frustration level of many of the comments on the owners thread. I have to say that if I was told two months, that would have been easier to stomach than waiting DAILY in hopes of a call or email.

I know we are in pinball world, but what if......(replace Audi w/CGC). A guy can dream.

Nice to have in reality of pinball today:

-Notification of YOUR build starting
-Some photographic evidence of the process (super bonus)
-Milestone updates in build (maybe 2 or 3)
-Build complete
-Ship notification

I am new, what else?

#2385 10 months ago
Quoted from Macdaddy1974:

the number makes no sense i am 965 and have mine already.

Matching numbers are not being shipped in sequence, something else is the determining factor. People have cited getting numbers all across the board thus far.

#2447 10 months ago
Quoted from seenev:

Someone from CGC gave an update within the last two weeks about how the matching LEs were taking longer than planned. If that kind of thing gets an update but "playfield issues" doesn't, I just don't know what to think about that.

Looked it up, not much given in that update that we already didn't know.

Quoted from CGC-Ryan:

Happy New Year's Everybody.

I wanted to give everybody a quick update as to what is going on here at Chicago Gaming Company.

We are in production currently on the Monster Bash Limited Edition Serial Number matching games. We are working hard to get them completed to start our standard Monster Bash Limited Edition Production run. As you know we are committed to delivering the highest quality in all of our products, so we are taking a little extra time to ensure that every game is up to the quality that we demand.

Quoted from cheshirefilms:

No, probably gotta be stock of the topper, lockdown bar, powdered trim, or shaker.
Doesn't make sense they can keep pumping out SEs and CEs at will and not the LE unless it's an LE specific part shortage.

Another theory - the LE customers are fish already in the barrel. Time bound opportunity for CGC to capture SE and CE customers prior to forthcoming Munsters release.

Eagerly waiting
Unboxing of Monster Bash
Wait and wait I will

Quoted from flynnibus:

Here's some thoughts and prayers for you...
Can't wait till the next batch.. where people start complaining why they can't get Amazon Next Day on their new pin purchases.

Its coming! Someone is already drop shipping Stern's for them (3 to 5 day availability) sold under Amazon retail.

edit: links are good

#2941 10 months ago
Quoted from Mokthemagicman:

CGC said they expect to start shipping being non-matching LEs in Feb and expect to have them finished before March. Everything else will be shipped in March. This is of course if there's no further delays.

I know of at least 1 matching LE from the 246 that hasn't shipped yet.

#3083 10 months ago
Quoted from Pinchild:

I ordered in October. None matching LE and have not received yet, but when ordering NIB it usually takes months to get anyway.Not in a rush would love it now, but again I expected the wait.
To ease the pain I ordered a Munsters pro that will be here next week! Yippee!!!
So to all you newbies and impatient complainers (Just Chill) this hobby takes time.

I have to agree. The wait would be a lot easier to deal with if I had a brand new pin to play while I was waiting for my brand new pin.

#3187 10 months ago
Quoted from ShinyBall:

Not everyone that buys a machine...is here on pinside

Also would include that some portion of the 246 matching LEs still haven't been delivered. The roulette wheel is still spinning on those.

Quoted from sirlonzelot:

Did anyone received a cabinet where they don’t stick around the corner ? I wonder when they begin with this ...

My date stamp is a bit blurry, but looks like Jan 20th(ish) and machine does not have the corners wrapped.

#3974 9 months ago

I am also have some inconsistencies, we will call them, with the ball coming out of the scoop and going SDTM. I had ordered a black line Cliffys, but mine came with a metal scoop protector, so haven't installed. It doesn't appear to be Cliffy quality and showed visible dents after just a couple of games. Curious if anyone has swapped out for the Cliffys black line protector and what, if any, impact that had on SDTM issue.
