I would like to see a company come in and make a quality product of remakes and only remakes. Make two or more a year and keep the price around 5-6 k. Remake everything. Do it right and deliver on time.

#352 4 months ago
Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

I see some Big problems here.

A truly unfortunate situation regarding mudslinging based on the current state of market inflation in attempt for added profit.

Sometimes purely for comment baiting under false contraversy.

More manufacturers = lower prices due to competition including used games that take the weight of those titles. There is a subsidiary price increase effect of "tag along" piggybacking on older titles, but in the long run the industry and market is healthier.

The only true reality is if advertising promises matches production, there is less contraversy. PPS made a good call to not state a formal announcement at Expo.
Perhaps manufacturers will learn from their past as the market continues to "flutter".

Quoted from teekee:

If you really want a CC buy an original with CCC. A CC remake is fantasy at this point... don't let anyone fool you about this.

Looks like poor Teekee is still reeling from all the money he lost on MMR. Now he is going to get burned on AFM. Better sell your BBB before its to late sucker!!!

Quoted from Wickerman2:

to have the validity of your claims doubted since you have made only 2 posts and they are identical

People didn't believe the leaked information regarding Lawlor's pin being called "Dialed In" and being based on a cellphone theme either.

Just sayin'!

What's your beef with Teekee? That he makes money buying and selling pins?

No that he LOSES money buying and selling pins. ....after the remakes were released of course.

You can thank the values of nice MM originals for keeping your throwaway a float. You paid $9500 for yours and its still worth about $7000. (edited)

Quoted from Deep_Throat:

PPS/CGC and Stern are having issues and Stern is not willing to continue the remake manufacturing. There were many factors that contributed to this but with Stern having their own issues as well they decided it was time for PPS/CGC to find there own facility. There will be a long delay as PPS/CGC are still in talks with Stern to continue with remake # 2 which is AFM. PPS/CGC will have to figure out who will build the next and all future remakes. It will be a long process but you will probably not hear it from anyone at Stern or PPS/CGC. They agreed to keep it quiet so they can make the AFMR announcment hopefully before the end of this year and start taking preorders and they do not want this news to hurt the pre ordering process. Be prepared for a long wait. And be prepared for a denial regarding this news. This comes from a source close to Stern.

Totally not true, so your 'inside information' is not ... Stern is available to do whatever runs of whatever games make sense ... trust me, PPS have a great relationship with the principals of Stern and there is none of that going on ... jeesh everyone thinks they know what is going on ...

To be honest the biggest disappointment for me from expo was not having pps announce there next title. Theres a reason why theses pins are loved by so many because all the new titles are still competing against there standard from over 20 years ago.

Thanks Rick.

Nice to see that you guys are trying to learn from game one.
Better to be ready and have all your ducks in a row.
Look forward to seeing game 2 and beyond.
BTW I'm bias, I'm a happy MMR owner.

#367 4 months ago
Quoted from Quadrat:

Nice to see that you guys are trying to learn from game one.

Rick at one point in the height of MMr misery stated they would not take pre-orders again on another title, and the people rejoiced. But once the games were flowing fairly well he stated that the remake model didn't work without taking orders ahead of time. So this go around it is going to be interesting to see which motivation wins out, I suspect there will still be people putting substantial monies down that will not receive a machine for a year or more, but maybe he will prove me wrong. I hope I am. Clearly his product will find a buyer without the angst of managing a lengthy list of depositors, which honestly provides no real protection for either side as legally it has to be fully refundable anyway.

In any event I wish them well if only for the selfish reason that once he gets the remakes out of the way for titles I already own he may one day build me something I'm interested in, and at a more reasonable price point.

Really hoping for $6000 for a standard AFMR. Would really shake the market up!

That would be nice, but new pricing from Stern and JJP probably just pulled the rug out from under any big price drop.

Most definitely !

I think we'll be lucky to see anything <$8000, not that I'd pay $8000. I'm be an AFMR buyer for around $6500-$7000 shipped.

Me too if it's available sooner than later while I have money & a hole in my lineup. $8,000, no way.

#374 4 months ago

I'll buy a CCR in a heartbeat, one of my grail games for sure! With the continued code, it should be a heck of a lot of fun to play.

#375 4 months ago
Quoted from taz:

Well, AFMR should be way cheaper to make than MMR.

What better way to pull the rug from under JJP and Stern than pricing near a Stern Pro?

$6000 standard.

$7000 LE.

They would sell twice the volume than if priced higher.

Afm is much better than any stern pro and has more going on than any stern pro so i wldnt count on it being that cheap. Why everyone thinks it dont have as much parts compared to mm is not all true eaither. Afm has a good bit of stuff like the strobe light and board. 4 martians, ship and special light board and bracket assembly, subway, vuk, scoop assembly, motorized drop target bank, 3 ramps, martian ships, wireforms, 9 targets and then all the regular stuff pops, slings , 3 diverters , flippers and so on . I dont think it will b much cheaper to make than mmr except for the board set technology cost and maybe some common parts. Id think it b around 7500 for standard and maybe 8k for one with color , powdercoat, shaker .

I am hoping for a AFMr I just got MMR and love it. AFM is second on my list for sure

Afm is amazing and my favorite pin over mm and mb . Theres just something about it thats awesome and to me a perfect pin . The strobe mb in complete darkness is just awesome .

Way cheaper?

How so? Where is all the extra cost in MM compared to AFM? The castle is not going to be that much more expensive. What do you consider to be "way cheaper?"

Fingers X its Monster Bash...MB.... or Cactus Canyon CCR....Revised. ? Either one is good to me... Happy owner of MMR LE...

#383 1 month ago

Wake up people, part of the deal with Stern to produce remakes for CGC is that CGC will not under cut Sterns current pricing model. AFM will be $7000-8000 with extra bling! Am I in the know??? Fuck no, but this is common sense for anyone who has run a business or negotiated anything. Big thanks to Rick for participating in this thread, feel free to shoot me down if I am off on my assumptions. Cannot wait to see the revised dots on AFM! Remember how much you were willing to pay for that upgrade.......Well all of you MMR buyers just showed your cards in the ultimate pinball poker match.

#384 1 month ago

Pretty sure that it's known at this point that Stern is not assembling the next title.

Thanks Steve, so who is producing? I haven't followed this much as AFM doesn't really interest me. Honestly, if Stern is not producing I would be concerned as a buyer. They may not be perfect, but they are the best around.

Oh wow, this AFM remake just got interesting for this clueless Dark Knight! Maybe we can hit a competitive price point after all. I guess it makes sense, especially if they plan on doing a number of remakes.

With such a large financial commitment you would think they would start to roll out the official rumor mill.

Development of their board system, for a start. Assembly time should be considerably lower too.

#390 1 month ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

Development of their board system, for a start. Assembly time should be considerably lower too.

project and logistical management seemed to be their biggest problems... taking away their stern crutch isn't going to help them anymore on that front. Savings on the R&D front aren't going to go into price decreases... they will make up for the lack of margin in the first project.

While having more control over their assembly scheduling should help... unless they do something to address the problems that Stern's strict requirements exposed.. the problems are only going to get worse when you don't have the pro overseeing you.

Just look at the slippage we have right now... from Oct to Jan? Their goal of what level of completeness before announcement didn't change.. So their target of Oct... has slipped till now and beyond.. before they hit an objective they thought they could make back in Oct/Nov.

I wouldn't expect anymore smooth (or cheap) of a trip this time around.. the only change is going to be the time window between announcement and attempts at production.

Drama to satiate people's boredom from their own personal lives.

PPS formal release statement will be provided when:

1) The game is ready to be reproduced including all parts in hand, and construction contract in place
2) The market supports the release for maximum profitability, based on the "ebb and flow" of releases
3) Advertisement program is prepared

Pinball machines rely on hype, short timelines, and immediate production to maximize profit. When the hype dies, the title begins to fade from the NIB shiny toy box eyes of new buyers.

Anything less is just leads to reduced viability of sales.
If an enthusiast want examples of poor preparation and mistakes, there are plenty of game titles to compare as an example in the past five years up to the present.
