Quoted from kaneda:
these guys have been nothing but transparent with the build, but now that we are at the finish line, it's all radio silence...what gives? Show the game! Share a video. You have 250 people spending $5,000...you could show them what they are getting before they commit. This whole buy on blind faith thing is really annoying and is killing this hobby.
Relax, I want a video as much as the next guy. But Kevin owes us nothing. He collected a small deposit to hold our place in the project, that's it. It will happen, we will see the pics and videos when they are ready. Bitching about it doesn't make it better.
I hope Kevin and everyone involved is satisfied and the project is a success and the company thrives etc.. But this is building a pinball that while not by a professional manufacturer is striving to be on par with Stern (etc..).
There is more to this job than we can understand, they are not just building a one off machine for their own enjoyment, they are trying to make it a smooth, polished product. The last thing I want to do is to pressure them or ask for a rush job. I'd gladly wait another year if that's what it take's.
