Can't wait to get my hands in a printed copy! Good work, Jonathan!

#4 1 year ago

Have absolutely no interest in Kiss whatsoever. This is still a must buy!

Tried to place my order....but it won't add it to my cart....

Looks awesome! payment sent.

aaahhhh....

Thank you.

Works for me now.

#9 1 year ago

Order sent in! Can't wait to read it, awesome job as always!

Quoted from Aurich:

Have absolutely no interest in Kiss whatsoever.

For the non-KISS fans: technically the magazine doesn't report on KISS, but on KISS-themed pinball machines, their designs, artwork and such. It's definitley not about KISS or KISS' music. I'm not a KSS fan in any way (before the Stern KISS game came out I maybe was familiar with 5 songs by KISS tops).

In total about 1/3 of the magazine can be counted as KISS pinball related, the other 2/3 (178 pages) is not related to KISS pinball at all. That's almost the size of Pinball Magazine No. 2.

#11 1 year ago

Just ordered my copy, looking forward to another issue arriving.

#12 1 year ago

First batch of orders will ship this week, second batch hopefully the week after Pinball Expo.

Here's a pic I took yesterday at the 20th anniversary of the German Kiss fanclub.

Are you going to offer a combo price on issue #3 and Santiago Ciuffo's book?

I remember you did that for issue #2...

I ordered issue 2, 3, and the book for the combo price of "save on shipping"! When shipping is $20 that's a huge savings!

#21 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballBeerGuy:

Ordered the #2 and #3 combo. Any word on when/if issue #1 will be reprinted?

Yes, I'm already working on that. The updated reprint of issue 1 should be available in November.

So I'm preparing all the packaging and stuff to ship out the first batch this week (friday). As people are ordering posters from the webshop too: I have some promotional posters of the cover of Pinball Magazine No. 3. These are not for sale, but I will include one with each order for posters (one per tube) just as a nice gesture

#31 1 year ago

The first part of the batch that ships tomorrow was delivered to Deutsche Post today. Part 2 will follow tomorrow. Orders that come in today will still ship in this batch. Please note that each magazine will ship in a plastic bubbly air cushened envelope that goes into an extra strong cardboard box which is made to fit.

For those attending Play Expo in Manchester, U.K. this weekend: Paul Garner will have a limited supply of copies of Pinball Magazine No. 3 available at his booth. Besides being slightly cheaper due to less shipping costs, for each copy sold a few pounds will be donated to charity.

The first batch of Pinball Magazine No. 3 shipped out today. Thanks to everyone who already ordered a copy just based on Pinball Magazine's reputation and a few photos of the new issue. Hope the new issue will meet your expectations Looking forward to see how the new issue will be received

The next batch is scheduled to ship the last week of October. All orders coming in will be collected to ship in that batch. If you can't wait that long, try to get a copy at Pinball Expo next week, Play Expo (UK) this weekend, or Festi'Flip (France) the weekend of October 24/25.

#33 1 year ago

Will you have copies of #3 at Expo? How about 1 and 2?

#34 1 year ago
Quoted from dirtbag66:

I will have a limited supply of Pinball Magazine No. 3 at Expo. Issue 1 is currently sold out and will be reprinted in November. I am not planning on bringing copies of Pinball Magazine No. 2 as I'm flying in and already maxing out on my luggage weight. However, Rob Anthony will also have copies of both Pinball Magazine No. 3, No. 2 and Santiago Ciuffo's Pinball Book at his stand, so you may want to go see him.

#36 1 year ago

I placed my order this afternoon. Just in time to miss the first shipment.

#37 1 year ago

The available copies at Play Expo in Manchester (U.K.) of PM03 all sold out and resulted in a charity donation of 111 GBPounds. Many thanks to Paul Garner for taking care of the sales at this event. Can't wait to see how the magazine will do at Pinball Expo

#38 1 year ago

For those that made the initial shipment in the US, when should we expect delivery? Thanks

Quoted from Pinfactory2000:

My safest guess would be next week (after expo). If you're lucky sooner

Sorry, I didn't bring any posters this year, except for promotional posters of the cover of PM03.

Wednesdaynight at Expo Pinball Magzine No. 3 sold like hot cakes Great to see so many readers who show their appreciation for the magazine

#45 1 year ago

I got my copy last night and have not put it down. Everyone please support this effort and buy a copy! It's very worth it.

#46 1 year ago

looks like I will be out of stock at Expo today, which is a luxury problem I guess...

Received lots of great feedback
Jack Guarnieri (holding the magazine up after receiving his copy of proof as an advertiser): "If Jersey Jack Pinball would be making a magazine, this is what it would look like."
