Hey, did Kaneda tell you Erics game is being shown next week or what?

Quoted from Yelobird:

They have managed this long to stay in business.

And in Brett's interview, JJP has been doing pretty good. Which I assume was right up to the move.

Obviously the move, three weeks later virus shut down. Has mucked up plans.

Yet they seem to still be gearing up to make pins and get them out faster. Setting up new production facilities. Hiring more people.

They make great games. And are looking to have a promising future.

I know it won't be overnight. I am looking forward to their future.

In that picture from JeraeyJack, if you look above the rows of PFs there appears to be storage slots for something much smaller. Would those be used for upper PFs maybe?

First time those racks were used. Yes. WOZ mini playfields.

Where's the cliff notes?

Episode 4 The Pink Foot

On Episode 4 of the Jersey Jack Pinball Podcast, we discuss the reveal strategy for the next release, creating sculpts for pins (Peter Dorn), how a pink foot became a dragon (Ted Estes), "Be Positive" campaign (Jack Guarnieri & Joe DiRusso), and more!

Quoted from PtownPin:

So when u ship containers overseas what port do they leave from?

Port of Chicago. Chicago has ports under their authority. Lake Michigan is part of the Great Lakes, and ocean going vessels operate on the Great Lakes.

Not sure which port or ports in particular would be used to ship pins from any of the Chicago manufacturers.

Quoted from Skyemont:

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.

New Jim Patla interview.

Things are moving forward.

#965 3 months ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

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.

Sorry I thought u worked there.

I help with tech support.

First to go. Last to know.

Willy Wonka was announced on Pinside by two distributors before I knew.

#989 3 months ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

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)

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.

LTG : )

#1020 3 months ago
Quoted from Lermods:

they should not have shut the Lakewood facility until the Elk Grove facility was active.

Well yeah, hind sight is 20-20.

How the hell can you plan for the country being shut down 3 weeks after you start the move ?

Everything you were counting on. Assembly line, walls, wiring, office furniture, waste baskets, heat, air, everything imaginable you need. Can be delayed beyond belief.

Not to mention a steady supply line of all the parts you need to make 500 or 1,000 games and keep the line moving.

Other manufacturers have their hands full too. Behind the scenes things you don't know about.

LTG : )

#1072 3 months ago
Quoted from Mr-Worf:

how many employees with some experience in assembly came to the new location

You mean ones you can't live without ? Like Pat, Ted, Keith, Eric, Joe, Wally, Jim, etc. ? They were already if Chicago. Except Jack. And he flies all over for new releases anyway.

You mean assembly line workers ? You can train new ones.

LTG : )

#1090 3 months ago
Quoted from Mr-Worf:

yes exactly i mean the workers on the assembly line.

The majority of temps who come in when games are on the line.

None of the manufacturers keep them around until production starts.

When Stern moved to the new building, they lost a lot of the temps because travel way across Chicago wasn't worth it.

So after the line is set up for the next game, parts in place, story boards in place. First few test games made. Then the hiring or rehiring starts. So there is a turn over on new people at every manfacturer.

I’m assuming at a distributor location.

No idea of time frame, game name, or anything.

I do hope one for a tech support location ( ie me ) so I can learn before the calls start.

LTG : )

#1144 3 months ago
Quoted from romulusx:

Calls what calls?

Where is the back box key. How do I get the glass off. What software version is in my game.

Anytime a new game goes out. The basics light up the switch board. Many first time buyers, or people who forgot or don't know.

#1151 3 months ago
Quoted from iamabearsfan:

Sounds like most of us here on Pinside

When people get a brand new in the box new game. Excitement comes into play too. Possibly forgetting everything.

I'm happy for them. I get to hear the excitement in their voices.

#1158 3 months ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

TPN with Zach stated good news from JJP is coming in September. What part of the month was not mentioned.

It has been a tough crazy year, to say the least. No shows, only a couple new pins.

So knowing in two to six weeks there might be some excitement. I'm glad to have something to look forward too.

#1224 3 months ago
Quoted from Slapfighter:

So why had they posted this trailer three months ago?

To let people know that in spite of the move from NJ to Chicago. In spite of COVID. In spite of riots and protests in Chicago. That they are moving forward and want to build great games in the new factory for pinball lovers everywhere.

#1254 3 months ago
Quoted from BallPin:

Well everyone knows they are coming out with GnR and Toy Story,

Really ?

I do tech support for them and I don't know that.

Last year we were expecting Toy Story at TPF and JJP unveiled WOZYBR. Then later at MGC we were expecting Toy Story and WW was unveiled.

So make that everyone less one.

LTG : )

#1257 3 months ago
Quoted from jfh:

Actually Lloyd is on the “I don’t want to know” plan.

That is true. Then if something leaks. Wasn't me.

Quoted from Yelobird:

Your on a need to know basis!!

My tech support credo. First to go last to know.

Though it would be fun once to have an inkling of what the heck is going on before the tech calls come in on it.

LTG : )

#1258 3 months ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

And what would You know

Well now. To be fair. I did BS my way through five weeks of tech support for WOZ, before I had one so I could start learning it.

Quoted from colonel_caverne:

Hard to believe (with all my respect)

Your choice. Believe or not. No matter to me.

Quoted from colonel_caverne:

Or i don’t understand what is your job

Tech support. People stop into my arcade, call one of four phones, email, PM's here and on Facebook. I try to help them get their JJP ( and CGC ) games going once they have them and have questions or need help with the game.

I don't work at either factory, so I can't look out the door and see what is going on, or sit in on meetings. I found out about Willy Wonka here on Pinside two days before MGC. Just like everyone else. I didn't know anything about it before hand.

#1296 3 months ago
Quoted from Halfwasted:

but JJP sees GnR as too risky a theme.

Nobody knows that. Unless JJP says so.

#1303 3 months ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

Why is written « jersey jack pinball » in your profile?

Because I do tech support for Jersey Jack Pinball.

And there isn't room for Planetary Pinball Supply, or Chicago Gaming Company.

I own an arcade. SS Billiards, in Hopkins, MN. I work from there. Noon to midnight everyday, though usually earlier and later. I'm not at any factory I help. Though on occasion I have visited them. And hope to see the new JJP building and new AP buildings some day. I've seen the old ones.

Also people thinking of buying a JJP game or CGC game. If they stop into my business. I'll open up the games and walk them through it to help the manufacturers sell games and people learn about what they are buying.

Quoted from Freakyguy666:

JJP is not one person anymore. So there are several people who would “know”.

Jersey Jack Pinball has always had more than one person that knows.

How's the sarcasm... ok then with all your talent you can remove the giant screen tvs for me!

Wasn't sarcasm.

You wanted JJP games to have the real actors voices in them. I pointed out four of them that did. In case you didn't know.

I didn't quote your dislike for the big screen, because they all have that.

#1503 3 months ago
Quoted from iceman44:

I just don’t get JJP. Jack keeps popping out the Woz editions, yellow version money grabber. Although who would buy it?

There is a huge market for Wizard Of Oz stuff. Way beyond pinball fans. They are probably still buying the game.

The first Summer when JJP started and hadn't built a game yet. People seeing me and my location on the WOZ forum, stopped in on their travels around the country to WOZ shows and conventions. They didn't know what pinball was, but being it had WOZ on it, they bought one. And wanted to see what a pinball machine was.

Wasn't just a few either. There were a lot of them. Majority retired and traveling, but young ones too. I didn't realize that Wizard Of Oz had a following like KISS.

JJP may keep making WOZ well into the future with a market like that.

LTG : )

#1505 3 months ago
Quoted from branlon8:

If I’m informed correctly, WOZ and Hobbit had a lot of electronics in the cabinet which moved to the backbox with DI. Is this still the case with the newer WOZ games?

Yes.

LTG : )

#1553 3 months ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Jack said it himself. 2-3 games
Per year

It has taken years. But with the move to Chicago, new factory, everything under one roof. Hiring more people. I believe JJP is nearing that goal.

Quoted from KingBW:

Patience is tough when you really want to know.

I was a test operator for 19 years. I've learned to not get excited until it hits the floor.

Maybe this year is tougher with out shows so we can see what is new or get news on what companies are working on ?

#1657 88 days ago
Quoted from Kenz:

They do need to come out with some news shortly. Its looking a wee bit embarrassing..

Even a few leaked photos would keep the momentum going..

On the Jersey Jack Facebook page is a video, "Letter From Leo". ( I haven't seen it anywhere else yet )

A good tour of the factory. A walk through of a huge, well stocked parts department.

I've been saying they have been working hard there setting all this up these past months.

#1673 87 days ago
Quoted from Lou-E-Gee:

Thank God JJP released that video of a kid touring the facility.

It was the first tour of the new factory and a look at an impressive, stocked parts department.

Amazing what they have accomplished in half a year considering what was going on in the world during that time.

#1705 87 days ago
Quoted from jorant:

I think we found who's in charge of their marketing department.

Did you mean me ? Or the man in the video giving the tour ?

If you meant me, no. I do tech support for JJP ( and CGC ). People that have trouble with their JJP ( or CGC ) game. I try to help them. Through the company support systems, here on Pinside, and other places.

I have nothing to do with marketing.

I do get excited when we see something new like the inside of the new JJP building. Same as when Stern moved into their new building. CGC had their own assembly line going. AP's new building. Gerry's Multimorphic production.

I'd posted comments, links, and pictures. Shared in the excitement that is pinball. These are great times. In spite of everything going on. And we get to see it. Stern is up to speed. JJP and CGC are ramping up for the future. AP is moving along nicely, Hot Wheels is being well received. Multimorphic's latest game is a hit.

The end of this year, and 2021 are going to be great times for pinball. No matter which company or games you love. Something for everybody. That is pinball.

LTG : )

#1706 87 days ago
Quoted from LTG:

I do tech support for JJP ( and CGC ).

I should probably add.

Since I have their games here in my arcade. People that are thinking of buying a game. I'll open them up, explain the inner workings. Treat them to games. And refer them to places to buy them.

#1936 78 days ago
Quoted from Dallas_Pin:

JJP has done so good we are talking about Spooky ... for any JJP employees reading this, let this tell you a lot

Why not talk about Spooky. They have a lot to be proud of and are expanding. Charlie and crew are amazing.

We can talk about American Pinball, who showed the first new game this year.

Multimorphic is rolling, we can talk about Gerry.

In the hardest of times, Stern has brought out two great games this year. Well worth a discussion. They clearly have a lot to be proud of.

Chicago Gaming in the worst times finished up the MMR Royal and the Ben Heck/Spooky tie in was covered on Pinside. So expect exciting things from them in the future.

And Jersey Jack Pinball. We can talk about them, and what they've accomplished in half a year facing half the planet shut down. They moved. Set up a factory. Have an assembly line up and running Willy Wonkas, and a huge well stocked parts room.

Yes it would be nice if some of the manufacturers would pump out a new game or two, and faster in the future. Or let us know what game is next. It is what it is.

Last year after Expo I was hoping for a new game or two before the end of the year. Then I thought for sure by TPF at the end of March. Then 2020 the year of what the hell next kicked most people in the nuts.

Now half a year later, I'm very slowly getting by. And am hopeful to close out the year with a new game or two.

2021 is looking to be the greatest year in pinball in a long time. And I for one am looking forward to it and just wish it would get here quicker. Like many others.

Quoted from kermit24:

I also call BS on the "lack of demand".

When it was leaked the night before the unveiling at MGC. About the removal of the three spinning discs and trunk lid opening. Pinside lit up and people were canceling orders.

A lot of games went unsold. Remember the ones in Australia that were NIB and people were buying them and shipping back to the USA ? After you couldn't find them here, why were they unsold ?

The game may be hot now. Out of the gate it wasn't.

LTG : )

#2148 76 days ago
Quoted from Navystan:

here's purely a guess. Imagine a pin with downloadable content, like additional songs package....hmmm

Depending on license and which songs, could be costly if not cost prohibitive.

Many TV shows that went to DVD had changes in music because of things like that.

And when Stern wrote an extra mode for a game with a topper. The place erupted.

I shudder to think every time an update adding cool features comes out. And those bastards are charging for a game I already spent good money on ! Pinside already has enough grief.

Good idea. Poor in practice.

What ever happened with pindemption?

Died. Never took off. Forgotten.

But it is kinda funny because LTG busted out the With Honors movie quote, so I just assumed we were all joking around.

I should hope so. Having fun is why we are here.

Pinball is supposed to be fun. Getting games. Getting help with them. Learning to play them. Finding out what exciting mods we need. Forming new friendships. And exciting releases coming up. Podcasts and video.

These are great times for pinball. Once in awhile maybe we need to remember that. And we get to see it. And 2021 is looking to be a great year for pinball.

I'd be happy to come to the factory and peek under the hood to see what I'll be doing tech support on, before any calls come in.

Quoted from Ericc123:

but I can't help but feel they missed out on sales by showing after Stern, American Pinball AND Deeproot.

It is a possibility.

But so much went beyond anybodies control. Start moving from NJ to IL. 3 weeks later the country shuts down. Anybody see that coming ? How do you plan for that ?

In spite of every possible delay imaginable, they set up a factory, stocked it. Have it running. Quite a feat in 5 months of this year.

Yes Stern has worked miracles. American Pinball is very slowly getting games built. And Deeproot has yet to show anything, it remains to be seen what they show and when games roll out. It looks like JJP will be rolling out games the same time it's shown.

Once JJP shows their game, I'm sure sales will be just fine. In my humble opinion.

I missed Gerry and Multimorphic, he had a new game this year too. I'm sorry Gerry, I didn't leave you out on purpose.

Virtual Expo Maybe???

Wouldn't that be a crazy virtual Expo if Jersey Jack Pinball, Chicago Gaming Company, and Stern. All unveiled new pinball machines ?

#2643 68 days ago
Quoted from romulusx:

Do you think that JJP was aware of how weak Deeproot showing was going to be and that’s why they waited for their reveal?

No. Their plans and goals are their own. They aren't waiting on anybody else. Just getting things the way they want it.

Quoted from Noma2017:

JJP just posted on IG that they are working hard to make “your October a memorable one”
It’s a pic of the whole team and isn’t that Eric in the middle?

Yes. That's our man Eric ! Designer of great games !

Your invitation to the new game launch will be scheduled for 2 weeks after you've completed your first 6 tech support calls on the title.

I hope not.

But damn that's funny. Thank you for that.

Spotted another one. Tech support guy Steve Zamonski, right behind Eric to the left.

You. Steve. And what his parrot saw ?

Did Steve move from WV?

No. Must be a road trip.

Quoted from Yelobird:

And how have we not deciphered with 200 theories Erics shirt yet?

Quoted from KingPinGames:

pretty sure it is a 20 sided dice thing that I wouldn't understand.

Dice used for Dungeons and Dragons.

#2672 68 days ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

So confirmed by #LTG and KingPinGames Eric’s next game is Dungeons and Dragons! Code deciphered and confirmed!

We was wrong.

KevInBuffalo decoded it. It's Critical Hit !

Eric's next game is Critical Hit. Can't wait.

#2702 67 days ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Lloyd.
Why dont I see Jack in this picture?
Where's Jersey Jack?

I can't speak for Jack.

My thinking is he is probably home in New Jersey.

I haven't recently dug into all the travel restrictions or risks. A trip in an airplane from NJ to Ill might not be wise. Or get you quarantined somewhere.

Might explain why others aren't there.

Or maybe more will be there for the reveal ?

LTG : )

#2704 67 days ago
Quoted from romulusx:

So when is the reveal again?

When JJP announces it.

LTG : )

#2706 67 days ago
Quoted from romulusx:

Damn it! Foiled again

You took a shot.

Only asked the wrong person. I wasn't at JJP to be in the picture. I'm 400 miles away.

And usually the last to know.

I'm waiting for news too. Mostly so when I can plan for an increase in tech calls. 5 JJP pins out there now. A 6th will eventually make an increase. Especially with first time NIB owners. Wondering where keys are etc. I don't expect anything serious.

LTG : )

#2708 67 days ago
Quoted from wesman:

I miss Jack.

When I reentered this hobby recently, seeing him give tours, muck about with Todd Tuckey, and give lectures and such at conventions were really the joy that got me excited for pinball again. Given the overall last year, (even despite Covid) and since Wonka's launch, I really fear his presence in the company will never be the same.

Nothing ever stays the same.

And this year has really mucked things up.

Give it time. Get past the virus problems. Jack is still an important part of the company. The man who made his dream come true.

When shows return and travel is safe. I'm sure he'll be doing what he does best. Revealing games. And talking all the changes at Jersey Jack Pinball and where it is headed in the future.

I for one am confident that great times are ahead for JJP !

It's got a "G" ramp too ! Just like the Data East one.

Good job Eric and JJP !

What's the over/under on how long it takes for a new post "What's JJP's next game and when is it coming out" to be put up?

Within one hour once the reveal happens.

Oh Lloyd you're too kind .... I give it 5 min.

You are wiser than me. I was thinking 5 minutes. But had high hopes for proper restraint.

#2933 59 days ago
Quoted from Grossp59:

When is JJP 6 coming to SS Billiards? Monday?!

No idea.

I hope before any tech calls come in once people start getting them. That hasn't ever really worked out since WOZ.

I'll still try and help those in need.

LTG : )

#2936 59 days ago
Quoted from wcbrandes:

How long do the CE people have to wait? Have they announced how they will tackle the production in numbers and or which models are shipping when?

I would imagine all of that will be answered quite nicely on Monday.

Quoted from wyopin:

So what’s this long stake? Ideas?

Light grey ethernet cables for the light system. Used on WOZ 2.0 and JJP games after.

LTG : )

#2963 59 days ago
Quoted from RobF:

They carry RGB control signals? That is a lot of RJ45 connections to one board...

Might do more on this game.

There are I think 10 on them in WOZ 2.0 from the HUB Board to each of the big light boards.

Quoted from vireland:

My question is, who is that 7' tall dude at the end of the line? He looks like a giant.

That is yelobird

Gives you incentive to buy his mods, doesn't it ?

#2965 59 days ago
Quoted from wyopin:

Not the bundle of cables Lloyd, the stake to the right of the bundle....it looks like it goes through the playfield?

Screwed to the playfield with one quarter drive head ? If so. That is a wire harness holder. Holds the bundle up from the wood.

Hard to say.

He could be resting up. Monday is going to be HUGE !

#3027 58 days ago
Quoted from Bublehead:

Ok, what in this picture that excites me is not his NIB perch, or his nonchalant semi axle look, but the pallets and pallets of parts in the background in boxes... pins for the masses.

On the JJP Facebook page the Letter from Leo video toured the new factory. And showed a huge, well stocked, parts department.

LTG : )

#3037 58 days ago
Quoted from greenhornet:

im not seeing any line workers in any of these released pics.

It's elves. They sneak into the factory at night and build games.

LTG : )
Disclaimer : You can't honestly think that JJP is having their greatest reveal ever with no line workers ?

#3064 57 days ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

Here's hoping the reveal is at Midnight Chicago Time tonight. Technically Oct 5th at 12:00 am.
About the time band hits stage anyway.

I know the waiting is hard. For me too.

Let's let Eric have a good nights sleep, if he can. Big day for him tomorrow.

He’s at SS Billiards right now in a hidden bunker playing some GnR,laughing his ass off!

Not true.

That is some very funny sh*t !

Disclaimer : Now searching for that hidden bunker. Not sure where I put it.

#3077 57 days ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

I do hope Lloyd your one of the first to get one.

Thank you my friend !

It would be nice to get one ahead of any tech calls for a change. Or my competition.

Simple things like where are the back box keys are easy. And what usually happens early on. Calls on anything game specific I haven't seen yet, gets a little harder.

LTG : )

#3079 57 days ago
Quoted from romulusx:

Ask Geraldo he knows where it is?

Well since Capone's vault ended up being an underground speakeasy that had to be located off of hotel property so the hotel couldn't be in trouble. And never was a vault.

My hidden bunker must be 300 feet East under 11th avenue.

Thank you for your help in locating it !

#3089 57 days ago
Quoted from insight75:

Can I order directly from JJP or do I have to go to a distributor? I'm a little confused on this.

From the Jersey Jack Pinball website, Next game isn't listed there to put in your cart so call Jack or Jen.

Or your favorite distributor.

#3096 57 days ago
Quoted from SLCpunk2113:

It would be impossible to prove where they came from.

Not if they were prototypes and had subtle differences known only to the factory.

What happened to the launch streams? I thought the people that got it in advance were supposed to be streaming it today...?

Maybe they are too busy playing it and forgot to be streaming ?

Wrong.

It is. Showroom model shipped from NJ to Chicago for showroom there.

#3358 54 days ago
Quoted from IronMan8Bit:

A showroom for a game they don't even make anymore? haha Seems like teasing at that point.

Lots of pinball manufacturers have show rooms with past and present games.

I don't think that is teasing.

Quoted from Navystan:

but maybe he's not in the know here,

I'm usually the last to know.

Last year I found out about Willy Wonka here on Pinside two days before MGC. From two distributors' posts.
