They should state a firm cut off date and give people on the waiting list a shot.

Okay. Cool.
I thought I read something about confirmations going out.
Sounds good.
Thanks

Hey all...I was back reading my emails for the Dec 14 deadline. I didn't come across it. On another note though I read the part again about using Back Alley Productions for Predator PF toys. The url was in one of the emails. I clicked on it just for kicks. It says they are real busy with Jersey Jack work. I wonder if Jersey Jack workload is causing a delay effect to the Predator workload that Skit contracted them for? I sure hope not but it is what it is I guess if it is yes. What's everyone think? Anyone know how big a facility Back Alley is and if they can handle all this work at the same time?

Matt @ Back Alley Creations has been working on the WoZ stuff for a while. I suspect he has finished a lot of that work (if not all).

Hey Drano,

I didn't get a confirmation either but did get a receipt emailed to me immediately after paying the 250 from paypal.

#1506 6 years ago

Is everyone really sure they can't make it to The Shark Club in Howell, MI for the Snowball Open? It seems the Predator is going to be there and it looks like Santa visited the guys at SKIT - B a little early...

Not to knock it because it's good you guys got some ramps in but I can see the left ramp in the picture cracking because of the angle in the bottom part of the picture. That needs to be rounded I would think instead of an angle on it.

Hey Steven,do you guys have a finished playfield (artwork) to see yet.
That would be an early Christmas for us all

Ramps look good, can't wait to see them in action.
#34

#1512 6 years ago

Happy to see the new proto ramps! I do agree that more curvature in the sharper angles at the bottom will likely increase flow and decrease breakage chances.

#1513 6 years ago

I agree, power and momentum from the ball will be lost and put into that corner. Was there a design reason for a corner?

#1514 6 years ago

I'm not too worried about the angles - these ramps have a decent slope just to get up them; by the time the ball clears and is trickling back down to the inlanes it doesn't have a lot of energy or damaging force left anyway... With that said, I'd love it if Skit-B has an option to buy an extra set of ramps and plastics along with the pin - you just never know what flying steel balls will do. (Heck, if the playfield art is as kick-ass as I'm hoping for I might be interested in buying a second playfield too!!).

#1515 6 years ago

I was also hoping to have the ability to buy a plastic set, set of ramps, and additional playfield too.

#1516 6 years ago

Since everyone is asking for stuff, I would like a pony.

#1517 6 years ago

I would also like a pony, but think this one would work better.

#1519 6 years ago

Could there please be one forum in the world free of fucking ponies?

#1520 6 years ago

I wouldn't do that to a pony!

#1522 6 years ago

Bringing back some of the good ole days of a non black speaker panel!

#1523 6 years ago

Nice... Predator next to two new Stern LE's? Is the TRON an LE as well??!

#1524 6 years ago

So that's what it will look like next to my ACDC

#1525 6 years ago

yes Tron is an LE there as well as Rolling Stones LE, X men LE, Spideman LE (black) and a host of others!

#1526 6 years ago

Is this the shark club in Howell or Waterford?

Either way its only about an hour away at most. Worth the drive if you ask me!

Ill take pics for sure. (have to get out of Australia first)

#105

#1527 6 years ago

Was hoping to see some toys on it

#1528 6 years ago

Man, you guys gotta leave that there until next weekend...

#1529 6 years ago

Great picture!

#1530 6 years ago

Anybody make it out to the Shark Club yet? I was hoping to hear or see some updates from the field by now.

#1531 6 years ago

Some more pictures or a video would be great.

#1532 6 years ago

Topic is slow. Damn. If only my trip back was a week sooner. Need to play this shit.

#1533 6 years ago

So, who needs a topper for their Predator?

Quoted from spfxted:

My friend makes them, he's a FX artist here in Detroit, and the same dreadlocked guy pictured playing the Predator pin.

#1540 6 years ago

That's one way of keeping the kids away from my pins

#1541 6 years ago

What news from the north?

#1542 6 years ago
Quoted from playboywillis:

What news from the north?

Not sure if this was directed to me (being Canadian) or SkitB, but I got a reply from Kevin yesterday that my deposit was in for #3.
No real update on the date of the first build, but they seem to be done scrambling to get that first proto on location and eager to push ahead on everything else that has to get done.
I'm personally praying for a Spring release so I can have a nice comfortable drive to Northern MI, but I'm cool with whatever.

My only struggle now is what to put on my plaque
I was going to do some movie quote or something, but after talking with Kevin about how this will be the first game ever sold by SkitB, we figured it might be nice to come up with something a little more special... no pressure

Anyway, I'm stumped. Anyone have any cool suggestions?

#1543 6 years ago
Quoted from Drano:

"If found, return to BigDuke6" - has a nice ring to it.

#1544 6 years ago

I have been thinking of putting something less movie quote related and more just specific to me/pinball.

Below is my standard custom message for my pins.

"It's all about the Balls!"

The quote works for pinball and other things in life. Also figured it is PC for any kids and the adults will get the joke.

#1545 6 years ago

I changed mine to just: PREDATOR

What exactly do you mean by this? I'm trying to get my hands on this next weekend.

BT:

I am clueless as to the whole pony thing. What is the deal?

Dan

#1549 6 years ago

Dan,

I think JohnnyO was giving guys a hard time since so many continue to ask for all kinds of shit to be added to the game this late in the build....so he asked for a "pony" for his pin.

I got the joke....I thought it was funny.
