Good morning all, happy Saturday!

A small engineering update for you. We're blasting through the order list. We're doing about 15 units per week and still ramping up. Some questions and responses/plans of action for people in the last batch:

1. "I had some screws rolling around in my box because the anti-static bag came open"
-- Yeah, sorry about that! We had a shortage of the ones we usually use, so we now have on hand over 1000 from ULINE and my wife is packing those materials so we can make sure they're done right!

2. "I'm concerned about micro scratches from the packing material on the plastics"
-- A very valid concern indeed! We're now shipping all plastic impact shields (clear or starry sky) with protective film on the front. Yes, it's one extra step for the new owner to remove the film (just peel it off), but you get that satisfaction of new plastic smell! (Don't breathe it in too heavily...). As always, if something isn't right, we'll make it right!

3. "I didn't order a starry sky plastic with my unit, or they weren't out yet at the time, can I get one?"
-- Absolutely. If you want one, just shoot us a PM and we'll get you one. They're $25 just to cover our costs.

----------
Business update:
We're hard at work getting mods out the door and well into games 2 and 3. We'll have announcements there shortly. We're getting in shipments of parts and making our way through the software development and testing processes. We've also got video content beginning to flow in for those! It's exciting, and stay tuned. We'll post each game announcement in a separate thread, but we'll link it here.

Now, you might notice that we're invoicing through Stripe (our payment processor) and not necessarily on the Pinside marketplace. The invoicing process through stripe links it to our ecommerce shop (which we will be launching over the next few weeks along with Pinside marketplace listings), and it also lets us control the backordering process. However we would not be where we are today without Pinside and what robin and team are doing. We believe in doing our part, so we've just sent in a Pinside donation for 5% of our total sales (which is their take on the Marketplace). We will continue to do this for each unit we sell to a user who found us on Pinside.

Thank you for all you do robin - The engineer in me is constantly amazed at the improvements and features you've rolled into such a large and custom forum experience.

Quoted from mbeardsley:

I'd love to have something like this for my Monster Bash.

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

The problem with MB is that the back panel already has some pretty great art on it.

This mod would be great for a lot of games that have plain back panels, but not very good for Monster Bash.

#403 62 days ago
Quoted from littlecammi:

This mod would be great for a lot of games that have plain back panels, but not very good for Monster Bash.

Well, the back panel of MB is really only a big static piece of screened plastic. It's hardly very exciting.

Quoted from Compy:

Heya,
I am humbled by this. Thank you so much for the nice feedback. I'm always striving to make great mods, and I appreciate your patience as an early adopter. Definitely working out some kinks in the installation/shipping process, but each batch just gets better and better.
I can't wait for you guys to see the next game!

Well, tell us damnit

TWILIGHT ZONE PINBALL : 86 PIXELS PINVISION BACKBOARD DISPLAY PANEL : REVIEW AND INSTALLATION VIDEO

Recently I just installed a new mod for my Twilight Zone pinball machine created by Jimmy Lipham from 86 Pixels. The mod is called the Pinvision Backboard Display Panel. The mod is a display panel that replaces the static black piece of wood that attaches to the back of your playfield in the game. The display panel shows animations of images that correspond to modes and rules within the game.

Jimmy, you’re a class act through and through.

I second that!!!!

#410 62 days ago

That looks great and I can't wait to get mine!!

#411 60 days ago

Sent you a PM to be added to the list. I should be number 1047 at this point. Willing to wait. Beautiful mod. Looking forward to other releases.

#412 60 days ago

Jimmy mine looks great--I have the mini TV mod which was already on the back board. I moved the mini to the right corner and velcro'd it on. Seems to be a good solution

Gotcha on the list! Welcome to the club, I'll shoot you a PM with some details

Soooo many TVs.... you have to post a pic! The placement/cooperation of this mod with so many others available is definitely something I've been curious about!

Another 12 headed into final testing and then packing/out the door. Thankfully my wife, Alana, is inspecting each unit to make sure everything is being packed that needs to be packed.

The next batch will be contacted this weekend/early next week and we'll keep 'em rolling. Our EU distributor has (rightfully) requested a hold on all UK bound shipments while we assess the fees/duties being levied to EU/UK customers. We're batching those orders up together, so some of you will get your units a tad earlier compared to where you were originally, and some will have to wait, but ultimately it'll save you a decent chunk of change. Your spots are secure on the list still.

We're also working to establish distributions in Canada as well as the Eastern US as we farm more assembly out to contract manufacturers and ultimately scale.

More updates and new site launching soon!

#415 57 days ago

Wow. That looks awesome.
Can't wait to be contacted when my spot comes up.

Gotcha! Sending details in PM!

Anybody know how to obtain the decal that goes around the display?

Quoted from jsalce:

Good evening!

Sorry I think I missed your DM. We sell these for $25 as an add-on at the time the unit is built. I think since you were in the first batch, it was before we were really doing these. If you're interested, I can take care of that. The artwork is reverse printed digitally onto the plastic.

#423 53 days ago

Please put me on the list.
Thanks!

#424 53 days ago

Hi Compy, never received details, only that my lot should be around in a week or so. Did I miss something? Happy to pay $$$

Good morning/evening Etienne,

You're still on track to have your mod assembled in next week's batch. We don't reach out until your parts are in and your mod is ready to assemble. Since you're in France, we'll likely ship DHL to get it to you in a reasonable/safe manner.

Expect to hear from me next week, goodsir.

Quoted from marioparty34:

Please put me on the list.
Thanks!

You're in!

#426 52 days ago

My TZ is bolted to my floor forever. Please add me to the list! Someone was mentioning other plastics/ mods for TZ that you offer as well?

Quoted from LocutusOfBorg:

Heya,

I've got you on the list based on when you first reached out! You're at #133. Being that you're in Canada, we'll likely ship DHL just due to speed/cost. We don't offer a ton of other mods for TZ (yet), but for this product we offer:
1. An upgraded impact shield plastic for the front of the panel that has stars printed on it
2. We partnered with Titan Pinball to offer a series of art blades for the cabinet that match the display, and are quite a bit more subtle than what you might usually see. (Pictures of both attached) -- product link: https://www.titanpinball.com/index.php?route=product/product&path=63&product_id=161

Thinking about putting one of these in my DW. The hype is real. Dude, you’ve knocked this out of the park!

#429 52 days ago

I second that emotion.

#431 51 days ago

Hi Jimmy, just wondering where I am in the order que ?

Steve

#432 51 days ago

I am 100% stoked! Please add the impact shield plastic to the order. Can’t wait to get this thing installed!

#433 51 days ago

And yes, someone mentioned TOTAN. I have one and would be perfect as it’s wide open at the back. STTNG would be amazing as well, but a little more cramped at the back

#434 51 days ago

Following, just now seeing this, pretty amazing

#435 51 days ago
Quoted from Compy:

I plan to announce the next game on Black Friday, after everyone wakes up from their food coma and ventures back online

Not long to go now

#436 51 days ago

Just read the whole thread...

Please put me on the list for a starry TZ mod, just squeaking in before Black Friday reveal.

Fooey on Xbox series x, I want an lcd mod for TZ!

Good job on the mod, just as exciting as gouevia’s witch

#437 50 days ago

Quoted from Compy:

So who hasn't woke up from their food coma and ventured back here yet? You're holding the rest of us up!
Time for some wake-and-drag action from those already here who know any other folks needing some!!!

#441 49 days ago

Pssh, if all announcements were on time, this wouldn't be pinball!

Gotcha on the list in case you resurrect your TZ. If we get to your unit and you still feel the same, instead of giving us the money, donate it to pinside or a local charity.

Just painted the next batch, working on boards. FINALLY fabbed cable assemblies should be here Monday!
