Overall a pretty smooth process. Box is well-designed and easy to remove. The machine is packaged very well, and comes with 2 boxes: one with legs and the other with balls/power cord/bolts/etc.

This machine is HEAVY. I have moved and set up a number of heavy machines, but this is the first one where I couldn't lift the back by myself to get the back legs on. I needed two additional helpers (!) to get it done. I think the biggest issues are that the back is very tall and the machine is back-heavy. Otherwise setup is pretty similar to other games.

The sound is WAY better in home than at the shows I played this at. The bass really comes through and the soundtrack fits the game.

Kids are really enjoying it. I've got 4 kids (ages 8-14) and usually I'm lucky to get one interested enough to check out a machine when it comes into the basement. Today all 4 were downstairs for 2 solid hours playing against each other.

The modes are really creative and well-implemented, and the game has a lot of character. Really pleased with my purchase so far!

Nope, went with CCR. So I'll have a little longer to wait before I do my first module swap.

You won't regret that. It's a very tough little game. Great for practicing making specific shots

Yep I couldn't lift it myself either - ended up calling my dad over to help lift it. Congratulations on your purchase - you won't be disappointed.

It's pretty unbelievable the Multimorphic guys hauled several of these machines to multiple shows for years. They must have great health insurance.

Congrats on the new game! P3 is a ton of fun!

That one little guy is a freak of nature, throwing machines around like they don't weigh anything.

Congrats on the arrival! You'll have a blast with it. Also, it was packed with lots of care.

Looks awesome. Congrats.

Must be the 16 ball trough /eject mech in back and the whole scoop assembly.. puts a good amount of weight in back that normally would be up front/ distributes diffetently

Looks very cool, thanks for sharing the unboxing pics.

They had a little submarine dude who could bench press a Yugo moving those games. You think the Production P3 is heavy... you should see the pre-production prototype which was a steel frame. That guy was like 600lbs - IIRC.

Congrats . Mine is in this build; but I've asked them to delay my shipment toward end of their run so that I can prepare my Garage'Cade.

When you get a chance have a look at creating profiles for you and your kids. It allows you to set different levels of difficulty for each person making it a lot more even when playing against each other.

I'm guessing yours should be arriving soon - good luck and let us know when it arrives

#21 33 days ago

Very nice! Looking forward to more pics and stories about your experience.

Came on Friday been enjoying Lexy quite a bit. Rocs is pretty cool when you get up in level you start to lose flipper power on either flipper as the rocs hit them.

Love the sound package on Lexy and the sound system packs a punch. The risk/reward of locking more balls in the ship is great.

Can’t believe how heavy the whole Playfield is when you lift it to service position - it’s a beast! Feels pretty solid!

Congratulations glad it arrived and you’ve had the weekend to play. Glad you’re enjoying it. I really enjoy Rocs too. Be great to hear your thoughts and impressions once you’ve had a bit of time to play around. Agree with you on build quality it’s definitely a beast - feels very solid (and heavy)
