Awesome news Guy's....Glad to hear you are still very close on the scheduled plan. Keep up the great work. #28

#198 8 years ago

Can anyone confirm if this is going to have a shaker motor?

If I recall from the last thread it was mentioned but not sure if it was ever confirmed by Kevin. If it doesn't, would it be wired for a Stern shaker kit?

What is the plan for ordering shirts?

#457 8 years ago

Take your time Skit B team. We can all anxiously wait for a great product and finished result.

Good things come to those who wait!

#477 8 years ago

Surprised this didn't sellout a bit quicker. Glad that it did and Congrats to the SkitB team!

#601 8 years ago

I would pay a bit extra also for magnets in this title. Probably a bit late in the planning stage at this point of development.

Hey Kevin,

5% is not a big deal to drop down on this but would it be refundable in any way? Sounds like it may from earlier posts.

If I remember right, the original idea for payment was to send in $2500 or approx half of the cost of the game when the individuals build date is up, then pay the other half or rest of monies owed when game is completed and ready for shipment. I may be wrong but I thought that was the plan. Any reason for changing that plan?

Quoted from SkitBPinball:

On a separate note, does anyone here know how to get ahold of Alex Levy?? I need him to contact me asap.

Kevin I sent you some information....check your email

#850 8 years ago

Might be a good idea Kevin....I haven't seen a thing in my email. Nothing in spam as well.

#876 8 years ago

Checked this morning and it the email has arrived.

Nameplate #28...."You're One Ugly Muthafucker"


Nameplate #191...."If It Bleeds We Can Kill It"

#993 8 years ago
Quoted from Kcpinballfan:

Well from what Kevin said earlier in the thread is that cab artwork looks to be really solid and they have tried to make it fade but that hasn't happened yet.

I think it would be very unlikely to see any kind of fade from a few day test under a heat lamp.

Damn It Gambit....I wish I had 13! Oh well.

Hey Drano,

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

#1549 8 years ago


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.

#1635 8 years ago

Maybe they can start PM'ing each other to come to a conclusion.

#1721 8 years ago

Sounds great Kevin....Looking forward to it.

#1772 8 years ago

I am getting a real good feeling this is going to be one badass adult themed pin. Thanks for the updates today. Keep it going strong SkitB.

#1785 8 years ago

Kevin, Aaron or SkitB team,

Any decision on the technology used to cover the playfield yet?

#1910 8 years ago

Great....Now another 120-150 posts of members stating they have their confirmation.

#2052 8 years ago

Sounds like things will be moving along nicely...Any update on the playfield situation?
Thanks for the update Kevin

Quoted from Kcpinballfan:

Do you have a projected release date? I dont need the actual date just some where close with a guess. Ive passed up several deals for pins but if its likely gonna release in the 4th quarter of this year or the 1st quarter of next year I could plan around that better. As you know being a collector is a month by month time and money management job. Like I said I dont need an exact date or anything set in stone just a projection for those of us that need to plan around a time.

This would be nice information to have.

#2339 8 years ago

Sounds like most are OK with the wait but it would be nice if we could get a ballpark/potential release/build (Spring, Summer, end of year, etc).
There have been quite a few that have been holding off on the purchase of other pins and if they had a better idea on approximate build time then maybe they could have bought some new additions.

Hey Kevin, Any chance of paying the total cost for Predator now? If you have a final total cost at this point?

#2352 8 years ago
Quoted from daley:

Would love to see you guys on the west coast, however I thought this year's PPE was the last.

You are correct Sir but 2012 was the last, no plans for one this year....there is always Pinagogo in mid May (weekend after Mothers Day) looks like that may be tough due to Allentown.

Any chance of a Cali trip in May Kevin?

Quoted from Marc:

Nope, aint gonna happen. Got an email from Kevin today saying they won't be there. Oh, I have so much I would love to write in this thread, I'm not really drinking the Skit-B koolaide anymore. I still feel Predator will be great but Skit-B REALLY needs to get there shit together as a company.

Interesting post....If your not drinking it anymore, what do you plan on doing?

#2552 8 years ago

Thanks Kevin...I am in and don't plan on asking for a refund. Keep busy and soon I think many of us will be anjoying a great game.

#2674 8 years ago

Kevin...code complete, great art and toys that are interactive = Great Pin! I don't think all of us are too worried if it strays a bit over the estimated $4750 it is still much lower than the other new pins coming out.

#2768 8 years ago
Quoted from SkitBPinball:

We're pushing everyone involved to have our biggest (and final?) update on the machine itself by the end of April.

Damnit Kevin and here I thought we would find out the beginning of the month....oh well!

Thanks for the update and really looking forward to the end of April to see the biggest update. Keep up the great work and thank the team as well.

Thanks again for the update.

I did see a topper from some photos that were posted....Is that the plan at this point or yet to be decided?

#3457 8 years ago

Where will the pony be going on the playfield?

#3673 8 years ago

Next title

Quoted from SkitBPinball:What do you want to talk about?

Next Title

#3749 8 years ago

I think they should stick to the original plan. It has already been changed once ($250 deposit) which I completely understand and did.

Now payment plan? Didn't see any information on the Predator updates about this.

Wasn't the payment plan 1/2 at build and 1/2 when complete and ready to ship?
I have saved my $ and am ready to shell out the amount needed for the entire pin.

Kevin, is this payment plan optional or it has to be followed for all?

#3753 8 years ago
Quoted from flashburn:

Cool, thanks for explaining it a bit Kevin.

Yep explains much more....OK when do you want my money?

#3798 8 years ago

I couldn't own it just yet. Hard to explain that kind of thing to seven and four year old boys, but I'd certainly seek it out if only to play Number 6 Multiball.

Hey navajas...I bet most of us were close to 7 years old when this came out and look how all of us turned out....haha....maybe you have a good point.

#3864 8 years ago

I am with you on this. Not a big deal to have a signed translite on the game.
Maybe the outlanes signed (cleared over of course) or like others have mentioned...a different translite for the ones that put it all down at once or a second signed translite.
What about for those that put all in they throe in a extra set of plastics or ramps?

#3906 8 years ago
Quoted from Hwawonyu:

Level 4 should come with one signed to hang and 1 on game. Or a bump in line up ; ). Life sucks and rules change.

One extra to put on game & signed one on a wall sounds good. I don't like the bumping in line up.

Quoted from spfxted:

I agree, the level or assholeosity here has been low....

Compared to what most of Pinside has been doing this past year that is true. I hate to say it but it seems Pinside has almost turned into the old RGP. At least there are still quite a few of us that don't feel as though we need to attack everyone else in a thread.

Quoted from SkitBPinball:

Taking the game back out into the wild tomorrow night for an open house at our local venue here in Michigan. I'm sure some folks will score some photos and short videos, then Sunday I'll be recording the official video. I put about 25 test plays on it tonight making minor adjustments when necessary, and everything is going very well on this end.

I am hoping you get this video out soon Kevin and it sounds like the team will. There are quite a few concerned with what is going on at this point, I being one of them, and unfortunately some have bailed. PLEASE hit this outta the park with the video, the performance of the game out in the wild and continue the communication with the people that still are supporting Skit B. Crossing my fingers and hoping for the best.

#6133 7 years ago

Any chance you plan to do a bit more with the hanging body other than the ball knicking it to make it move a bit?

#6277 7 years ago
Quoted from sensfreak:

Would like to see a pic with the skull and spine realigned and how they are realigning the dangling body.

Any picture of this Kevin? Also, Is the ball really going to hit the hanging body? It seems that would really change the gameplay and make it very difficult to run a ramp.

Quoted from corvair61:

Kevin informed me that production will start in 10 weeks (via Facebook) --->"In about 10 weeks. Just need to get one more part in here then we can go forward.".
This was 4 or 5 days ago. I was holding out… anticipating that someone else would share the news. Maybe everyone should just start asking him questions and reposting the answers as they are delivered.

Pictures or it didn't happen

#6396 7 years ago
Quoted from Montu32:

Any news on that hanging body? ( magnet,mech )?

This has been asked numerous times and seems to get dodged....My guess, nothing is changing but it sure would be nice to hear from Kevin.

Quoted from SkitBPinball:

Playfield swap on the machine is done and everything is working now, so I've just got a couple of things I want to work on then the new gameplay video will be posted.

Been a while for the video if the swap was completed and everything is working. Is there some kind of hang up?
