It is one thing to be a parts supplier, it is quite different to be a pinball machine manufacturer
There is now a higher expectation from PPS

It is not as if Gary Stern and Jersey Jack have ever said the wrong thing

If I buy you an ice cream cone, will that make you happy?

#262 5 years ago

I am still offering the OP an icecream cone (with chocolate ice cream) if it will make him happy

Quoted from jfh:

I'm a vanilla guy, but thanks for the offer.

You know most pinsiders are laughing AT you, don't you?

Quoted from TaylorVA:

I think the OP is certainly in his right to bitch about the issue. Similar thing happened with the TronLE single slot door. Don't see Stern LEs ship without full doors any more in lieu of it. I would be interested to know where one goes to get the mech discount. Most people that want them will want them before the game arrives.

Yes, the OP has a right to feel cheated
But after 3 days crying, either cancel your MM order or buy a coin mech

OK, you have convinced me that PPS are ratbags
Thus, I will not be buying a MM remake

I will also be emailing Mr Stern as my 3 NIB sterns did not come with coin mechs

The 'Thunderbirds' pinball machine will be shipped WITH coin mechs

/me does happy dance

#475 5 years ago

@ rarehero, you guys don't deserve one :p

@ O-din, Homepin is keeping things under wraps, the machine is supposed to ship July 2015
If you want to keep up join one of the Australian forums

#478 5 years ago

O-din, nothing stopping you from buying one in Australia and getting it shipped
But the Australian dealers have not been announced yet

Quoted from o-din:

I want to see it first. lol. But I think one of those kits where you put it together yourself would be really cool.
Are you getting one?

He is no longer offering it as a kit, an insurance issue

Yes, I am getting one. Paid in full

Quoted from Crash:

I think Bumper Action should be the primary seller of Thunderbirds.

And why would that be?

Quoted from tracelifter:

Bumper III The Rise of the Missing Machines.

I think we are up to Bumper IV now

And the blame is with Bumper II

Ice cream for everybody!

Quoted from generica:

After reading this thread in full I only have two questions:
-what exactly is a coin mech?
- are they included in MMR? It would be kind of weird if they weren't, right guys?

Coin mechs are a vital and most important part of a pinball machine
Without one all you have is a wooden box with a glass top
