Pretty vague..

SO vague in fact I'm thinking something like Ballarama trying to cash in on the hype for Labyrinth..

How did you even find this? The domain was registered only four days ago, just before the Labyrinth hype kicked in.

Who's brave enough to give them your email address and see what they say? I would, but I'm busy sending my bank account number to this Nigerian prince who needs my help.

Saw it in a Discord channel discussion. Thought I'd come in here and ask if anyone heard of this. It's on our short list of themes we'd like to see (my wife's a pinhead too).

If the domain was registered 4 days ago then it was after the Labyrinth announcement on 11 Oct.

Looks very scammy. If it’s legit, they did a poor job making it seem trustworthy.

From the looks of that website, someone that remembered their Geocities HTML website password from 1999 is behind it. Maybe it will be available on buy.com.

I trust gas station sushi more than that website.

Inconceivable

Whois just provides Namecheap in Reykjavik. Registrant didn't want to be revealed it seems.

Rumor is this will be an Andre the Giant sized widebody.

Seems like its unique art at least? I want to believe...

Looks like the domain name and website host are both with namecheap, with the server's IP address resolving to Arizona. No useful details in the SSL certificate--it just has the issuer details, not the user details.

So, no real indication what country or state this might be from, although I would lean towards at least assuming a US-based entity, given that the website server is hosted in the US (rather than the UK, the Netherlands, Australia, Sweden, etc). So that likely rules out foreign pinball companies such as Dutch pinball, haggis pinball, and pinball brothers.

Multimorphic is the answer.

….annnnd excitement turns to disappointment in a heartbeat. Oh well.

Alright, I looked at the announcement properly this time.

The relatively small pool of P3 Multimorphic system owners will be excited.

The rest of us see less than half of a pinball machine that would cost $11,500 (we’re getting into JJP territory here) and not ship out for close to a year.

Not sure why you only see half a pinball machine - looks like a full game to me. I'll watch the stream this weekend or try to play one at TPF so I can decide for myself but it looks pretty promising from the video.

I said in the other thread that MM really needs another killer app. Princess Bride can get them a little closer, but I'm not buying the system just for that at $11.5k. I'd be interested in some of these modules, but at $3500 each, it's gonna add up fast. That means I've got to find a used one someone wants to sell for a steal.

I like the concept, but there's not a killer "must have" and the 7 or 8 modules they do have even with PB now added to the mix aren't quite enough to draw me in for the final sale.

In the end, I like some of what I see on the P3 at this point. I'll continue watching from afar for now and who knows, maybe one day MM develops something to push me over the edge and give it a shot.
