    Quoted from mof:

    Great news.
    I try to ask a few top level questions when considering the value of something to the pinball community:
    1) Is this good for the growth of pinball?
    2) Will this help add to the body of american art history known via pinball?
    With regards to licensed rehashed fan layout themes, I have these three questions:
    1) Is it good for the growth of pinball to keep churning out licensed themes based on movies/music/tv shows?
    2) Should pinball still be considered an art form, when it re-uses a licensed art theme? Is that art? When I look back on pinball machines re-hashing movie art 30 years from now, will I feel like that machine's art package is capturing the look, feel, and sound of 2015?
    3) Is it good for pinball to keep re-using nearly the same fan layout and just change the theme every few months?
    I'm happy for Riot Pinball and JJP for having the cojones to do a non-licensed theme. Are these the only two companies willing to try it in 2015?

    Wow. Sounds like your picking out a lawnmower. Your list reminds me of the scene from Dead Poets Socienty where the textbook suggests measuring poetry on a graph to determine its "greatness"

    I have 1 question that I ask:

    Is it fun.

    Quoted from SadSack:

    Clearly you are misunderstanding the fundamentals of business in a capitalist system. Many products have long development cycles. That doesn't mean the customer has to pay for it. If you can't develop a legitimate business plan to draw the capital investment required to produce the product, you really aren't a legitimate business. You're are more of a dream seller taking advantage of uninformed cultists.

    Good lord... No one is more critical of the prepay model than me, but aren't there enough OTHER threads to discuss that?

    Plus, WoZ is just about ready to complete shipping, so you're a little late predicting doom
