I also just heard Stern will stop making Lord Of The Rings!

Wonka didn't sell well because it isn't a great game. That is just simply the truth. That does NOT mean that there are not people that loved Wonka. Every game has a group of people that enjoy playing it. Heck, I love some unpopular games that are looked down upon. And that is perfectly fine. There are also great games that I hate playing, and I'm totally good with that as well. I can recognize their greatness even if I dislike them. Wonka just isn't going to reach that level. GnR might, but I don't have quite enough plays on it to judge that yet.

Quoted from playtwowin:

I have been told by a few people there will be no more Willy Wonka's made.

Joe from PinballStar just sent out an email that another run of Wonka LE is going to be available in October. If you are looking for one, there ya go.

Quoted from playtwowin:

New price increase as well.
11k plus freight now for the LE.

But cheaper than any LE on the Pinside Marketplace (until that one reposted a few days ago). The others secondary market sellers might want to reconsider their pricing.

Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Wasn't it just a few days ago that some dude was on here saying Wonka didn't sell... and today I get emails that they are doing another run!?! LOL

Quoted from bigd1979:

Not sure who it was but there is a ton of demand for them now...

I think "a ton of demand" is a bit overly optimistic here. This is "SMALL RE-RUN IN PRODUCTION NOW !!!". The key word there is "SMALL" (caps by Joe, not me). And really, my opinion doesn't matter. If you like the game, awesome. Enjoy it.
