Quoted from spfxted:

..and you care why?

for using distributors as profit centers? Because Stern REALLY frowns on this, and I'm surprised they don't start going after distributors that allow this to happen over and over. Distributors have lost their ability to be one for raising prices, this isn't a far stretch. It's the same reason why ticketmaster started going after scalpers, they want all their cut.

Quoted from xizor:

Now that the ordering is done, who’s the first to shift the thread to complaining about when we get our games?

Only slut dragons

Yeah, but what he wants to buy, sell, flip, set on fire, give away, piss on is nobody's business but his own.....

That already started 4 pages ago... Besides I think denial is the next phase.

We’re sure efficient around here...

I think there is a middle ground here. He's free to do with it whatever he wants, but we're also free to judge him for his actions.

#4056 1 year ago

reminds me of the time a guy came into the ER complaining that he'd fallen on 3 pinballs and got them stuck in his arse.

so let's say there are 375 pinball scalpers that all bought 2 rick and mortys, and they decided to all resell them for $1k over the original price you'd be ok with that?

#4058 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

It will be a hot seller the first 3-6 months of production or so... then things will fade slowly away...just to many new pins coming out that have potential to be amazing. Just not enough room and money to go around to sustain things.... u will be able to get things down the road for not blown up prices if you missed out today .

A bit different this time maybe. Alot of themes to come still won't have a patch on R&M. I mean, Stranger Things? , seriously? . Just as it is for plenty of other people, Stranger things is a Lame nothing theme for me. Personally quite glad it's going to be chucked together by stern, tbh. Nil interest.

The response to coming themes after this release will be viewed through a slightly different lens now too, I'd say. It's a humour theme pin, which there are not enough of in my opinion. Manufacturers would do well going forward I think, to work at some themes that have Laughter at their core

This would have to be one of the most On Fire topics ever for pinside? ... 4000 posts in 12 days? ... what topic has beaten that??

good luck to them I guess? There's sure a lot worse scenarios of capitalism in the world that are worse than someone making a few thousand off a pinball machine...

Doesn't this happen with stuff all the time?

#4061 1 year ago
Quoted from spfxted:

Agree it happens all the time. In fact it usually works the other way. New game with 50 plays is priced for $1k less to sell, while game is still in production at full cost.

This has got to be one of the best threads in Pinside history!! Congrats to the entire Spooky family, you guys rock! This company reminds us all that the American dream is alive and well. Go Spooky!!!

#4063 1 year ago

I wonder who gets the biggest benefit from this?

Rick & Morty is getting a lot of new exposure and fans (including myself) from the pinball world.
Some Rick & Morty fans will gain exposure to pinball that they wouldn't have otherwise taken an interest in.

But...Spooky just got between 5 and 6 million dollars in revenue.

#4064 1 year ago
Quoted from SpookyLuke:

Short answer is we dont know what the special first day purchase prize included is but 750 people will get it lol....

I think an album of all the music in the machine would be fitting.

I don't know..there wasn't a blip of this news today on the rick and morty reddit..

Or just tell everyone youve got huge news and release this album! Ala stern BKSOR

It is totally awesome they sold out so quick, but I do feel bad that non Fang members never even had a chance :/

Quoted from Thenewguy1337:

The one thing is, they cant say they weren't warned! There was ample time.
The only people that could be pissed are the ones that had zero idea it even existed and wasn't in the media they were seeing.

For reelz...It was more nerve wracking than watching my wife squeeze a watermelon through a lemon

I imagine there might be a few Fang Club members that might have missed the announcement and maybe still don't know today was the day. I know I almost did.

#4073 1 year ago

It was PURE LUCK I saw the email from KT as I have been traveling and luckily on West coast time was able to get up at 7 to place my order before heading to meetings. I am sure most people missed this going on sale

#4074 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

If spooky wants to cancel the Dbags order, I will donate $100 to a charity of their choice.

I'm sure he's getting his through Cointaker, they are his enabler.

#4075 1 year ago

I got lucky, I sometimes go days without checking my email or Pinside.

I was expecting closer to Christmas, like the original announcement graphic said.

I surely don't check my emails everyday, and definitely not at 7:00 AM on my days off. I was convinced this would be closer to Christmas.

I don’t think they are a spooky distributor?

#4078 1 year ago

People saying Pinside represents a minority when it comes to buying pinball machines are kidding themselves. This game proved that.

Ah, good catch.

#4080 1 year ago
Quoted from heyitsjoebob:

Maybe their audience don't give two shits about pinball like most of the world. Pinsiders makes up 0.0007202759% off the world population.

Don't think they carry Spooky. Likely Pinball Star since Joe has been on his show.

Honestly, if I hadn't been on pinside I wouldn't even have known about it, and I feel that is going to be most people. I don't do facebook (and even if I did, I still probably wouldn't have known about it). That being said, the reason I found out about it was that I happened to jump over to the /r/pinball reddit and they had just posted the announcement of it. I've only hit that reddit a few times in years.

Quoted from ausretrogamer:

I would guess only 1/3 of these went to pinsiders?

#4083 1 year ago

Congrats to Spooky Pinball!!! Maybe you should up to 1000.

Deadpool & GOTG could have been really funny, but they went with bad fake voices & hokey writing.

There's probably a wide margin between people that visit pinside from time to time and those who are registered and post regularly

Bold prediction: R&M will appreciate a la Tron LE, probably moreso.

Yeah, I was one of them... Got drunk with friends last night (similar story to o-din) and never saw the email. Slept in WAY too long this morning and by the time I saw the email, it was already sold out. I have an email in to Joe at PinballSTAR to see if I can get one of his possible leftovers, but not everyone in the Fang club got one... Ugh!

Chris just called me! He said if they cancel your order he will donate $200! (true)

#4094 1 year ago
Quoted from spfxted:

Chris is probably only getting one cause he is friends with Joe and will get one of the early ones. The opportunity to flip is in the beginning and his will be long gone before the prices settle down.

watch the video...

Pickle Rick will be there, and in a better place than he currently is on the prototype.
