    Quoted from iceman44:

    I'll second that. Can't wait to see what Aaron and Fast have in store for 2016. A truly good guy and passionate pinball person.
    We need more talented people like Aaron and Aurich more involved in pinball. That's a positive thing.
    I predict that I'll keep drinking beer in 2016, I find its helpful in drowning out some of the "whiny little b**tches"

    .

    But will you make entertaining posts after drinking said beer?

    Quoted from Mr68:

    Aurich's contract with Heighway Pinball will not be renewed and he is one and done in the pinball industry. Stern, JJP, PPS, Multimorphic, P-ROC, will not hire him for anything.

    That would be a tragedy for pinball in general in my view. Aurich is great; my ST Premium sure looks better thanks to his hard work.

    Just kidding of course.

    Ebd remake for 3k will sellout faster than tickets to boobs dunk tank

    My 2016 Predictions for Pinball

    Multimorphic P3 goes into production and joins my collection.

    Quetzal Captain Nemo goes into production and joins my collection.

    Spooky announces that "The Warriors" will be the theme for Spooky #3 and joins my collection.

    Quoted from dhard:

    I think it would be closer to $4.5k realistically. I know The Pin etc, just going by numbers I've been given.

    Would you pay that much for a remake of EBD?

    And I'm not going anywhere guys, but thanks for the kind words.

    Is there REALLY any classic SS game worth that much NIB? And I mean from a production selling point. They would need to sell hundreds of games, not just a couple.

    Maybe Spirit if 100 only were made?

    2015 has felt like getting the chores done before we can come out and play. 2016 is going to be so much fun! There are so many awesome people (many new to the pinball dev scene) that I feel fortunate to call my friends. If only 10% of these new projects see the light of day, we will all have plenty of new pinball for years to come!

    That's the question isn't it? Tell me people wouldn't pay that much for a brand new in box, clearcoated Fathom or Centaur. Optional chrome hardware kit for people who want extra shiny instead of old school.

    I could see that moving hundreds.

    #112 4 years ago

    Stern will change their ways...

    After losing some market share of course...

    #113 4 years ago
    Quoted from pezpunk:

    5. Capitals make the Stanley Cup finals.

    1. TBL WILL ship.
    2. Hobbit will ship and people will complain. While others thumbs down on pinside because they didn't get one.
    3. PPS #2 details announced. (At the TPF ) Hello " AFM " Which will save me money!
    4. GOTLE will arrive, and I will be glad I got one "I think?"
    5. Capitals make the Stanley Cup finals and lose to Dallas
    6. Pinball Side Mirrors will give away $1,000 dollars at the TFP for bringing a game
    7. SMVE releases & people complain about the price, as I am thankful I kept mine.
    8. Prices on games will bring us a big bubble
    9. GBLE will make it to my home. Hint Hint Stern! Get a move on it!
    10. I'll go broke before the BIG BUBBLE pops .

    Yea, those are the only two that comes to mind. But sales would only be around 3 to 6 hundred each. I'd love to see it happen.
    No shinny Bling Bling for me. Give me a blacked out Centaur any day.

    Rarehero's was deliberate. He was quoting the SM back board mistake.

    Fingers crossed for no typos on SM Comic Book Edition!

    #120 4 years ago

    I can't understand why Stern never addressed that typo.
    I wish there was a sticker to fix that

    #121 4 years ago
    Quoted from Rarehero:

    Typo? Don't the loose ones to ooze the most?

    #122 4 years ago

    PPS isnt going to announce anything in 2016 - it will be 2017 before the next game is announced. Rick has said it himself hes not announcing the next game until its ready to ship.

    Stern will announce their next game within the first 45 days of 2016.

    Prices on pins have leveled out in 2015 and will stay the same in 2016 or go down slightly

    He said it would be at TPF. I'm not sure if he mentioned what year though.

    Gotcha.
    Did not know about the backboard mistake.

    Another prediction: Labnip starts a 2017 Hobbit thread in January.

    #126 4 years ago

    I predict Aurich will first complain how the artwork on Stern Ghostbusters doesn't make him feel nostalgic, then complain how Spooky's Dominoes artwork doesn't make him hungry for a pizza.

    -1
    #127 4 years ago

    The exact same shit will continue I hope, this thread will surface "JJP we want our games" and Heighway's Alien will be greatness.

    #128 4 years ago

    <read as a Noir story>

    2016 will be another year of revolving door rehab for beelzeboob. The wife and kids [that don't look like him] will wave goodbye as he goes off to get "better". But she knows better, shes lived this nightmare before, the endless circle of addiction, abuse and suffering. But she has to keep up hope that maybe, just maybe this time it will work.

    When he gets out he will attend about 3 meeting before he finds himself back with the wrong crowd again. Slumped on the ground in an alley behind the arcade clutching a paper bag and an empty can of Naptha the vomit drips off his chin onto his teal t-shirt. Your money is not good around here, you can't buy beer with game tokens.

    People will walk by and pretend not to see him but he is not one to be avoided. He thrives on the attention - "Woo hoo, Pintastic" he shouts holding up his hand hoping someone will High-Five him. But it is August, the show is long over, the heat has made his wretched smell worse than normal. Its time to go back to Jersey.

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Heh. I think people will be pretty stoked about the Ghostbusters art actually.

    You know, I honestly don't complain because I like bitching about things. I try and offer constructive criticism because I think for the kind of money pins cost now that we deserve a little more. I don't want to call people lazy, because that's simply just not the case for the most part, but I feel like the art packages don't always get the attention they should, or aren't made the priority in the big picture decisions, and at least for some of us it matters.

    Everyone won't like Alien, you can't please everyone. And I have the same kind of license handcuffs all the other designers deal with too, I'm not free to just do whatever I think is best. But I can promise you that whatever it comes out as it will have as much attention to detail as I could give it. And that's all I'm asking for. It doesn't seem like too much to me.

    After that it's all subjective. You like it or you don't. But if the effort is there I can at least appreciate it for what it is.

    How's that Hendrix art gonna look?

    Like an Aerosmith machine on acid. And then you'll start to wonder if you put the right sugar cube in your coffee that morning ...

    Hey, I took it from your wife's FaceBook page.

    #134 4 years ago
    Quoted from jackofdiamonds:

    I can't understand why Stern never addressed that typo.
    I wish there was a sticker to fix that

    I confronted Gary Stern about it in 2008 when he was in L.A. showing IJ4 at the now defunct C.A. Robinson. He totally brushed it off like "hey we made a mistake but who's really going to notice that". I suggested correcting it on future runs, and suckers like me would buy new decals...or just make a small "cover up' decal. He was like "eh, whatever - INDIANA JONES! C'MON!"

    Lower end pins stay the same.
    Middle price pins on the rise.
    Higher dollar pins take the biggest hit. Why spend that amount of cash when you can get a NIB for the same price.

    Quoted from Rarehero:

    1. Apple will quit trying to fix my typing. Or maybe I am just dreaming.

    Would you pay that much for a remake of EBD? No I like my number better seams like an easy remake with today's technology and thanks for the lump of coal in the old stocking augrinch lol

    You can turn off autocorrect on every apple product (but still have spellcheck). Main problem with autocorrect is that fixes what you want and sometimes it screws things up, so, the real questions is which is the lesser of two evils, having it on or off. Bigger gripe is once it 'learns' a correction, if that is actually wrong, you are still stuck with that (but I think you can wipe them all out and start fresh,. Meaning if you tell it you don't want their suggestion and then you go fix it yourself anytime you make the original mistake it will just change it to your correction, that may not always be the right correction. Although you can use shortcuts to try to fix things like that, which can be edited.

    Imagine when you switch between two languages all the time (English - French). Would be nice if it could recognize the language as Google translation can.

    Thunderbirds will ship in the first half of 2016
    It will be awesome
    Homepins next game will be announced in Q4

    2016 will be another year I don't get to a USA pinball convention

    #145 4 years ago
    Quoted from PopBumperPete:

    What's the scoop on that anyway? They're the one pinball company that keeps quiet - but no one really seems to care. They actually close to a finished game? I checked their website - and it's like something out of 1997. Color me skeptical.

    Yeah, the web page is lame
    Mike does update on his face book page
    But all you will find is pictures of him producing generic parts
    He is not releasing pictures of the game until it is ready to ship

    Waaaah. Get a thicker skin...you're trying to sell a $6000 toy - this is your audience. Shunning them isn't going to anything but lose you possible sales.
