The game looks really cool. Can't wait to play one. Congratulations on getting this far in a timely manner! I really like the way you guys paid attention to making the game easy to work on. Would be nice to see some pictures of the inside of the cabinet and major components along with a video of the latest gameplay.

How wide did the playfield end up being? I heard somewhere that these are widebodies? Its hard to tell in the pictures.

Thanks for your comments.

Playfields are 23" wide and 46" long

Wish I were closer! Full Throttle looks incredible and I hope it ends up being a success for Heighway Pinball. I'd love to get one eventually.

Played the game yesterday and wow.. what a blast!!!

So great to see this new approach and the game plays very very very good already! The game is fast and the display takes you right into the story.

Top!

#7 4 years ago

Its a fast machine, just like motorcycle racing, so feels like a good fit.

#8 4 years ago

YES!!!!! God I loved playing this at Expo. Thrilled to be getting one!

#9 4 years ago

cool, looks to be the final version with the racer guy watching you.

#10 4 years ago

i am looking forward to seeing a bunch of video and listening to what people have to say about this game. If the release is today then we should see a bunch very soon. Good luck Heighway pinball. I hope this game is awesome.

#11 4 years ago

I was going to fly out for the party but its my Birthday and apparently regardless that its "my" birthday the wife got really pissed that I was going to London vs stay home with her and the kids to celebrate. Sheesh, so sensitive..

#12 4 years ago

We are looking into this, as we would love to attend, if possible.

The show begins the day after AMOA in Vegas, so we need to see if it is logistically possible

When does full throttle go into production?

#16 4 years ago

That looks great.

#17 4 years ago

Well it turns out as much as I was bummed not to go, staying home for the birthday party was the right call. Now just excited to hear about FT shipping dates : )

Pinball News has an article about the launch party:

http://www.pinballnews.com/games/fullthrottle/index9.html

Apparently my machine will be in the first batch of machines produced, so I am waiting for a final production date.

#19 4 years ago

I wish I had enough money to order one of these because it seems so awesome. Hope one goes on location near me!

#20 4 years ago

hey, I just noticed in this photo of the new (final?) back panel, that Heighway listened to some of the comments from us here on Pinside and both reduced the size of his logo on the panel, and also only displays it one time (it used to also appear in the art).

Hats off for listening to the comments!

I just realized that the way the playfield glass is incorporated into the side rails and lockdown bar means that we can't use our own glass in this pins, or can we? I.e., I'd want to put PDI/Invisiglass on it. Can I?

#22 4 years ago

all quiet on the full throttle front any news?

I hope so. That would be a hell of a thing having to ship sheets of replacement glass from UK every time. I can only imagine that magazine lifts up for service, but the glass sheet can be separately removed.

Yes Please. We will be sure to give you a warm Texas welcome!

So what's the latest word on Full Throttle? When will production begin?

Also, would like Andrew to chime in on this question if possible:

Hi Rob,

At the moment we have non-standard pinball glass size, but we are looking into the possibility of changing our glass magazine to accommodate standard glass size.

Does anybody here who owns an Invisiglass sheet know if their glass is standard WMS widebody size?

Full Throttle update to follow soon

#28 4 years ago

Invisiglass is available in Standard and widebody size.

#29 4 years ago

its easy to get custom sizes of tempered glass locally.
(assuming the glass isnt bonded to the frame or has holes, notches etc)

I'm hoping once I lift the magazine up like a car hood to access the playfield I'll want to do cartwheels and the glass size thing won't be a big deal in the big picture.

#31 4 years ago

Glad to hear that you are looking into this, Andrew. Since I plan on buying more than the two playfields I already have on order for my cabinet, it would be great to have some sort of non-glare glass in there.

If you can not change the size of your glass, please look into the possibility of offering a non-glare glass in the size you use when ordering a cabinet from you. I bet that they can be custom made for any size but perhaps not at the same price.

Non-glare glass really enhances the playing experience.

#32 4 years ago

I hadn't really thought about that - because of the modular nature of the system, an investment in some kind of non-glare glass makes sense because it is shared with all the playfields.

There is also PDI glass that is made in Europe, maybe Andrew you can speak to them? Work out some sort of deal for custom glass, perhaps offered as a factory upgrade.

Just throwing ideas out there.

If the consumer couldn't buy 3rd party or aftermarket, I think producing and offering different glass as an option during the ordering process would be a good idea.

Though I'm all for using standard size.

That's not the issue at all.

There are plenty of us who want the Heighway pins to have standard pinball size glass (Standard or widebody) so that we can put PDI and/or Invisglass on them. PDI and Invisiglass do not make custom sizes.

#35 4 years ago

Exactly!

PDI can be purchased in any custom size, according the their website.

Hi Andrew,

I've got standard, and widebody PDI glass on all my machines....it would certainly be a benefit to stick w standard size Wide Body sheets, as ordering replacements would be easy. My Alien must have PDI, so hope this gets worked out...thanks...mark
