We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Shipping pins to australia...

Mind wanders of..........

#952 8 months ago

Wow great song,Men at work had a few big hits and then they were gone

#953 8 months ago

Colin Hay (lead singer) has released several excellent solo albums and still tours (well, not right now)

Dude,do you work with or for JJP?You seem to be well informed.

You could always just drop Paul at pinballsales an email and ask him to clear it up in one shot. He is after all the only authorised JJP distributor in Australia.

https://pinballsales.com.au/

Quoted from JY64:

No it does not show that things are up and running although I believe that they are. The 30 units could just as well been games they had in their inventory that was needed by a distributor.

One thing is for certain is that it's good to see that JJP sales are already on the rise down here with the new domestic distributor structure.

And I can also say there is at least one Wonka in that container load - mine.

#957 8 months ago

I keep coming back here hoping there is some good news (or any news) from JJP,.. but NOPE.

This thread is crazy. Over 950 posts. I bet 90% of them have nothing to do with the OPs title. Including this post...

#961 8 months ago

What was the date Willy Wonka was released? I’m sure it’s been over 16 months correct?

At MGC April 12th to 14th. I don't recall which night.

So I was correct. 16 months ago. . I thought we were seeing 2 pins a year or atleast 1 pin every 10 months or so.

That was the plan. Things changed in NJ. Change in ownership. The time lost flying people from Chicago to NJ and back every time something came up. Etc. Etc.

Then the decision was made to move all under one roof in Chicago. So designers and engineers can step onto the factory floor and deal with things instead of hopping on a plane.

So start the move. Then a huge unforseen like COVID appears and shuts down literally everything you need. People, setting up the factory, keeping a steady supply of parts to assemble games, etc. etc.

They are working hard towards their goal to make games and make more than one a year. In the most trying times the industry has ever faced.

The factory is moving along. They are hiring more people. I don't know how long this will all take in these crazy times. I am confident they will be successful in their plans.

What company has ever been rewarded on pinside for showing pictures before the game is ready to release?

#974 8 months ago
Quoted from Nokoro:

TMNT got some pretty overwhelmingly positive response to leaks just before the official stuff. But for every TMNT there's half a dozen that are destroyed from the pics.

#975 8 months ago

As much as I want to know something, I agree with Nokoro. Announce it when I can buy it. No pre-orders, no hype. No money up front. I had some money saved for GnR, but gave up and spent it on something else. I needed something new. If it actually comes out soon I'll have to wait for the 2nd hand market. Thanks LTG for putting things back into perspective. Some of us are at home, full income wanting to buy things not realizing the impact of this stupid virus. Many companies and families are struggling and won't make it. It's only pinball.

#976 8 months ago

New Pin ?
"Golf Clap"

Quoted from Shredso:

Yeah, just put out some vague ass “innovation” announcement right when TMNT gets launched and Hot Wheels are shipping. That’s not the worst attempt at hype ever

#978 8 months ago

Perhaps they have a new mech installed that is not working properly and reliable........ when did we have a similar issue, ah yes I remember, could be POTC.

#979 8 months ago

JJP lurkers. Remember when Spooky released the photos of the underside of the new R&M playfield before they had permission to do a full reveal to keep the hype train up? Could we get something similar? Perhaps a photo of the bottom of the cabinet mysteriously "leaked" could get the blood pumping over here. Maybe the power cord? Back of instruction card?

#980 8 months ago
Quoted from Nokoro:

JJP's initial Hobbit PF images - it was night and day the revisions they made to that PF after initial reveal. And I think that helped with sales tremendously. Also, the VUK covers were hideous, and the Count Smaug / Mountain collar wasn't too good. Good idea, but not a good look. All corrected by JJP before the first production pin was built.

I am a fan of prototype reveals to the public before production. I have seem major corrections done, and even small corrections like misnamed dwarfs in Hobbit to spelling / font errors on others - all corrected by more eyes on the prototype.

Spooky w/ RZ.

#983 8 months ago

JJP is smart to not show anything on this game before they are ready to ship said game. JJP has nothing at all to gain...zero. Time and time again, companies have released photos of a game they couldn't ship for months and months, and it hurt sales significantly because the buzz wore off before people ever got a chance to flip the game. How many boo birds cancelled their POTC orders while waiting for them to finally hit the line? I remember seeing numerous posts about it at the time.

Well, don’t we already know that JJP6 will be GNR? Looks obvious with last news (jjp wishing an happy birthday to Slash and a pic jack/slash)

In the same time they don’t care, they are following their planning and revealing strategy

#986 8 months ago

The font on Hobbit changed too?

Or was that regarding Wonka?

#987 8 months ago
Quoted from wesman:

Hobbit was the major one wasn't it? All the diff'rent areas had diff'rent fonts to them as I recall.

Enough of them to significantly alter the future production of that title and effectively make JJP pivot to a less expensive, less-packed game in Wonka

Or a big misdirect. Don't forget the picture of Slash with his WOZ. They may be friends.

I posted before about last year at MGC. The rumors were strong about JJP5 and low and behold at MGC it became Willy Wonka instead.

Nothing is written in stone until we see the game revealed.

Yikes. I wasn't around here back then, though I've seen the original playfield design prior to Aurich helping out. Never knew the fonts were borked too..!

I think both could be great. But will depend on the whole package for each of them.

I used to be down on GNR because I’m not a band pin guy. But then I thought about it - I’m not a WOZ, Wonka or Pirates guy either and those games are all amazing to me.

So, I’m prepared to look past theme if the gameplay is there. And with Eric I fully expect it will be.
