    is this what cgc has been working on for 3 years?

    #7 74 days ago

    Playfield looks long and skinny.

    #8 74 days ago

    “What do the people want? Top rollovers? Ok, let’s double down on that. No other shots if we can help it. And make sure you completely butcher the spelling of the word Special, and make sure it comes out 10 years before RAZA”

    #9 74 days ago

    This must be featured in one of those vpin cabs that i see on aliexpress.

    #10 74 days ago

    More like a toy. Probably all plastic and breaks within 10 minutes.

    #11 74 days ago

    No washers included. I'm out.

    #12 74 days ago

    We all joke, but in 3 years they will have titles like "Guns n Flowers" and "Midlevel Madness" that are exact replicas of the originals.

    #13 74 days ago

    They'll be selling clones of pins in no time. This is simply them getting their feet wet. I'm actually stunned they aren't pirating playfields at this point.

    #14 74 days ago

    What type of keer koat did it use?

    #15 74 days ago

    New Homepin? ..... sorry couldn't resist

    #16 74 days ago

    I mean it looks to have hot rails lighting... Id buy one.

    #17 74 days ago

    It also says "Speccial" when lit.

    #18 74 days ago

    Just saw the gameplay video....still looks like more fun than RAZA....

    #19 74 days ago

    Hori Shit! That's exciting. lol

    I think that's just the Pin Stadiums

    Looks like JPOP found someone to make his latest design.

    #22 74 days ago

    I bet their playfields won't have chipping and pooling. Warranty (or lack thereof) is probably on par with JJP as well.

    #23 74 days ago

    Wow! a Binpall Machine!

    #24 74 days ago

    I wonder what the "Avances" shot does?

    #25 74 days ago
    Quoted from Yoko2una:

    “What do the people want? Top rollovers? Ok, let’s double down on that.

    To be fair they did change things up with this design; there are three rollovers on the left, and four on the right. That's better than Magic Girl that had a ramp that lead to nowhere...

    Quoted from Yoko2una:

    and make sure it comes out 10 years before RAZA”

    I doubt that Deeproot will ever release RAZA or any other title, so technically every new pin will come out ten years before RAZA.

    #26 74 days ago

    Deeproot Game #2

    #28 74 days ago

    Great marketing synergy having a Boxing game available on Ali Express!

    This.

    Everything made in the usa is awesome until you unbox a stern that is broken out of box, weak flippers, jjp playfield issue, node board bad, or you just remain a mythical company that doesnt produce anything or when you do, it doesnt work out of box #magicgirl and left unfinished... because we all love unfinished pinball code.

    #30 74 days ago

    Did anyone actually look at that video link?

    The machine looks like it plays pretty well. This could be the warning shot fired across Stern/JJP/Spooky's bow!

    Yes, laugh about the spelling errors etc but how long do you think it will be before someone makes contact with them and decides to assist them "tidy up" all of the spelling and perhaps even suggest a "proper theme"?

    This could be the EXACT thing pinball needs to tame some of the idiotic prices of recent times?

    #31 74 days ago

    I’d buy it. Hopefully it pops up on Amazon soon.

    #32 74 days ago

    “Boxing” is my dream theme.

    #33 74 days ago

    Wow, lots of nasty responses here, maybe you guys should try making a game written in Chinese characters and we'll see how that works out.
    This looks like a really good effort. I really like the cabinet design with the backlit panel and the backbox (and included topper) looks great. Flippers seem snappy and the layout is a nice simple "street level" design. The backbox seems to have an LCD screen showing scores and a view of the playfield in real time as the backdrop, there must be a camera on the topper somewhere.

    #34 74 days ago

    Hey, they built one, maybe they should sell their manufacturing abilities to... deeproot?

    #35 74 days ago
    Quoted from trueno92:

    They likely just stole and re-engineered his work.

    #36 74 days ago

    This is probably what Stern should have done with their ‘The Pin’ home use only models. Have the whole machine built in China and shipped over, do the testing stateside, apply vinyl artwork to the cabinet, slide in some glass and box it up. Really the only way The Pin was going to be successful was for it to be significantly less money than a Pro model (half the price, at least). There was no way to get to that price point with everything being assembled in the USA.

    Twenty minutes after you play it, you need to play it again.

    #38 74 days ago

    Still looks better than punny factory

    #39 74 days ago

    If Harbor Freight handles North American distribution, hopefully they brand it Chicago Electric and buyers can use a 15% off coupon and get a free flashlight or screwdriver set.

    #40 74 days ago

    $10k bi crismas

    #41 74 days ago

    Laugh it up funny boys, but this ain't being made for the rest of the world, more than likely they are targeting the Chinese market, which, I might add, their middle class, who have money for toys like this, is WAY bigger than all of North American markets (high, medium and low classes) combined. Its like Lego clones in China... yes, they sell to North America, but their biggest customer base is the Chinese middleclass.

    #42 73 days ago

    "Push ball with flappers for enter to poop-chute thusly scoring extra bonus target! "Pow!" make for earning 10,000, "Kung-Pow!" make for upset intestinal!"

    #43 73 days ago

    Has a very Punchy the Clown vibe on the video.

    #44 73 days ago

    Wow some serious hate for china here, the funniest part is almost everything you own is made there!!! or certainly contains components from china! Not everything from china falls apart, only the cheaply made shit (because customers want to cheap out) Most of your high end shit is also made in china!

    hmmm... looks familiar

    The 1980s called. It wants your Asian slurs back.

    Don't forget White Waiter, Attack from Arse and Poopeye

    Hahahaha I’d rather have the Bauer edition…for best-in-class flipper power! I have quite a few tools from HF and they are usually good quality for the money. I wouldn’t buy anything that is to be used on a daily basis, but for occasional use they do quite well. Their little blue oval flashlights with the magnet are great for use while working on pinball machines!

    #49 73 days ago

    Looks carcinogenic

    Don’t fool yourselves and underestimate China. If they find the pinball market worthwhile, they could dominate in no time.

    There’s far too many $’s in the design and BOM that China could reduce >50%.

    Yes, they can build good quality when they want. Yes, they’re know as ‘great copiers’, but they also have millions of good engineers and designers. Don’t ever think “they can’t”.

    I suspect they have little interest as there’s probably no market for pinball ownership in China. Most of the rising class that could afford pinball live in major cities where square footage comes at very high $’s. No 2000 sq ft basements.
