Quoted from practicalsteve:

Exactly. It would be like no longer selling or buying Williams pins because you are protesting that they shut down their pinball line to produce slot machines. Or not listening to the beach boys because Charles Manson hung out with them. Williams didn't rip anyone off and The beach boys didn't murder anyone.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Beach Boys played a small but key role in helping Charles Manson establish his following. And Mike Love, I gotta think he's had somebody killed over the past few decades.
As far as Jpop, hey whatever. Most of us didn't lose any money on the previous fiasco and most of us won't consider it some kind of capital crime if someone wants to buy a new machine he is involved with. Sorry, but that's the truth.

Wow, that send me down a very interesting Wikipedia rabbit hole...

Played it at TPF. I think they will have no problem selling a lot of these. It looks good, shoots well, and seems well made.

We are living in a great time for pinball. Stern, JJP, Spooky, Heighway and now American Pinball and Chicago Gaming entering the market all with solid game offerings.

Quoted from blueberryjohnson:

I'm curious how close to locked are the games shown at TPF and what specific elements will or may change before production begins.

In their presentation they said there will be minor changes to artwork. In the booth one of the AP staff told me there will be minor tweaks to the shot geometry.
