I think you still have a ways north to go from Kalamazoo, but you'd best hit up Bell's brewery while you're over there.

#1302 7 years ago

Oh my god. The inserts are things like grenades and claymores!?

Ha. God damnit! I can't wait!!!

#1303 7 years ago

By the way that pic looks awesome.

#1304 7 years ago

That pic just put the biggest smile on my face, simply friggin awesome!

#1305 7 years ago
Quoted from playboywillis:

I'm flying into the D the Friday night before Christmas (Dec 21(day the world ends)) and would be there for a while on Saturday, but will be in Kalamazoo for the rest which is 2 1/2 hours away. Didn't know if that place would be close and my ride could swing me by there.

I'm gonna be in Kalamazzo the 21st - 24th myself, and gonna hit Bell's for sure

#1306 7 years ago

I've been trying to figure out what those inserts would be for months! Very cool use of the Predator bomb gauntlet. And, it makes perfect sense with the player basically playing the role of the predator. Nice work!

Thanks Kevin for taking the time to answer our questions. Really looking forward to seeing this all come together with the artwork.

Straight. I usually stay on West Main. The first time I came back after I moved, Main St. Pub had an Avatar LE. Heard they have an ACDC now. No pins until I move ya know.

The pinball machine is the movie, not a character. There's modes, game play and art based on both "sides". Hence Killing Spree, Destroy the Camp, Catch the Girl, etc...

#1310 7 years ago

Just noticed the end of Unload mode is Mac spinning the empty minigun. Awesome. That'd be sweet if it kept turning until the last ball dropped.

Also, the "I can make it" ball save is pretty sweet.

If you look at what would be Dillon's shoulder in that new picture with the chopper, it looks like the guys were re-drawn.

Man, I am pumped about this shit. Looks great!

#1311 7 years ago

Agreed. The detail on the playfield pics so far have got me even more excited about this pin.

#1312 7 years ago
Quoted from SkitBPinball:

I also hope the SkitB team has a few hidden eggs programmed in.

Guys.... you need to make a deal and include the Predator Musical song "If it bleeds we can kill it" as some sort of easter egg. That would be tremendous.

#1313 7 years ago

Even better, but I'm sure it's too late, get some tunes from Austrian Death Machine in it, maybe as an alternate soundtrack? It's a joke band (just a single guy) from the metal band As I Lay Dying.

He'd probably allow it for free, or at least at a low cost.

#1314 7 years ago

The art is coming along nicely, and great job on the inserts

I liked this as well. I was thinking "Stick around" would be another good one here.

#1316 7 years ago
Quoted from Betelgeuse:

Haha same here but I dont want to sound demanding if they have othef plans cor it.

...I did notice the knife to belly animation during destroy the camp and didnt hear a stick around callout...so maybe

#1317 7 years ago
Quoted from SkitBPinball:

I'm not saying anything bad here, but I read "epic contrast" as "loss of definition."

Yup - exactly what it is. It's just speculation but I've seen the Tron film probably over 10 times now, and the contrast in the Stern animations looks wrong - just like when you turn contrast up too high and brightness down to compensate - emphasises highs and lows by throwing things away.

I'm not a fan, use a good display and you don't have to ruin the source material. Reminds me of people jacking up loudness on CD recordings now, ruining the sound just so people with bad quality earphones can enjoy it.

I'm also really, really not a fan of patchwork quilt and grid lines - I'll be one of the first trying to plasma convert the game Making it compatable with the Stern plasma power board would be a bonus, then all the parts are off the shelf - I converted an EU Tron by buying the stuff from Marco/Bay Area.

#1318 7 years ago

midnight madness would be cool

#1319 7 years ago

FWIW, I'm disappointed about 2 things, no video mode and no color display.

#1320 7 years ago

Just wondering if anything can be done with the cabinet to prevent damage from the legs. Could this be something that is considered for Predator. Would clear coating the cabinet stop this?

#1321 7 years ago

just use the pinbal life metal protectors under the legs as soon as you get you game.

#1322 7 years ago

Every Predator comes with plastic leg protectors anyways.

Why not carbon fiber to save shipping weight?

#1324 7 years ago

I'm very curious which LED DMD has so much better support for more (16?) tints. Please let us know how it performs and exactly which model it is!

Cheers, Koen

Koen, once we get it (this coming monday), we will take some quick comparison videos and post them up online.

On another note, PayPal is up and running properly. The email with the proper information will be going out late tonight/early tomorrow, but for those of you who want to get on it early can go ahead and send deposits to kevin@skitbpinball.com.

#1326 7 years ago

Deposit Sent.....wanted to be First!!!!

Glad you went with Paypal....scary the money the make!

Art #100...13th in line!!!! YES!!!

#1327 7 years ago

Damn, Art, yes, you were certainly the first from Pinside to hit the PayPal mark. I think that was like seconds

#1328 7 years ago

I just watched the latest video by Skit-B again and am starting to get very excited. I know I am a pinball nerd but what can I do I am who I am. The sound is great cant wait to see the playfield art and toys being designed. Great news that you set up paypal for deposits. Best of luck to you and the team Kevin and thanks for dreaming up and making the Predator happen for us pinheads out here!

#1329 7 years ago

Paid!

#11

#1330 7 years ago

Oh yeah.... I'm paid and in on the fun

#45

#1331 7 years ago

I'm paid too. #67

#1333 7 years ago

Willing to trade early production slot (30) and very cool #11 for #69 no matter if later production planned.. .

#1334 7 years ago

Just to confirm, the deposit is $250, right? The email i got from you Kevin didnt state an amount and i have only heard that amount being talked about here. Just wanted some solid confirmation of the total required before i pay.

#1335 7 years ago

PAID

Yes $250, go to skitb's Predator Page and it's there

#1337 7 years ago

Great. Now 100 "paid" comments are coming...

When you follow the email they sent, click on the link to make paypal paymnet and it will redirect for you to pay via your paypal account, and then click to pay now > it will automatically pop up with $250 in the amount field. You can then select you method of payment (debit, credit, or direct from paypal balance).

#1339 7 years ago
Quoted from playboywillis:

You mean 250 'paid' comments, followed by a bunch of 'anyone drop out' comments, followed by lots of 'nope sorry' comments, followed by a stark contrast of elation of buyers that can now really know this is officially happening and sorrow from those that are still in waiting limbo

btw >> "Paid"

Well I think we found out only about 110 preorders were pinside users

#1341 7 years ago

Ok great, I'm sending my $$$$ in with great excitement!!!

Number 1, I love the info and attitude of these guys and just applaud the effort and seem to have their sh*t together on a much higher level than either Stern or JJ (on a relative size basis!)

Number 2, I see Stern pump out another line pins, different models, LE's designed to screw the collector, $$$ wise, and once again, it will be a half a**, half finished code product...

Number 3, While I know I will love the quality, play and innovation of Woz, I'm getting tired of the attitude, it seems, that the pin loyalist that supported these guys from day one doesn't seem to matter a whole lot anymore......

It looks like I'll be happily supporting guys like this and Jpop now and in the future...

#1342 7 years ago

Yes, Ice. I've made a decision as well. I'm not supporting the Stern method of having different machines (LE, Pro, Semi-Pro, Prem, etc) The WOZ method is best. Basic gameplay and all toys are the same. Bells and whitsles can be added later. Prices are getting crazy. My rich friends will not pay $8k for a pinball machine! (I need coffee)

Right on Ted!...We now have Options A, B, C and D to choose from and Stern doesn't seem to get it......he will shortly if I'm right about Avengers sales.....

#1344 7 years ago

Is there any fee associated with sending the payment through PayPal that SkitB has to pickup? I might just still send a check so all of my money is going directly to them and not being leeched by PayPal.

#1345 7 years ago

Yeah. There's a lot taking away from Avengers right now. Predator, WOZ, Hobbit. I'm pretty burnt out on Super Heros right now. And the price! I've spoken to a few friends who own bars about putting in a few machines. $4k maybe...7-8K..no way...

#1346 7 years ago

Sadly I got in to late for the Predator and I wanted this one really bad. This would have been my very first pin. can someone here point me in the direction of the waiting listed? I'll keep my fingers crossed!

#1347 7 years ago

My wife just paid my deposit!!
#55
''I ain't got time to suck up''

#1348 7 years ago

So now that you've got the account set up, it is time to start asking for deposits on game #2?

#1349 7 years ago

the Paypal method is just so easy. Deposit is paid and everything is cool. I am a little sad that Paypal will get a cut of this cash though. I want SkitB to get every sent they deserve.

#1350 7 years ago

CC fees are just a part of doing business. Skit-b should factor that into their budget planning. The more convenient it is to pay for a customer, the more business they will do, so it is a net positive.
