Never seen the show but a big Spooky fan. I know what I'm going to be binge watching this weekend!
Can't wait to see more details.

....of course this could be a giant smoke and mirror show to throw us off the whole Haunted house party thing....

#520 10 months ago

Going to check out this R&M thing. What channel is it on?

#865 10 months ago
Quoted from Hammer1021:

What difference is there from ordering a game straight from Spooky vs a distributor?

I started buying my Spooky games from cranky pinsiders who unbox the game then throw a tantrum on the forum because they can't fix a coin door lock.

#1047 10 months ago
Quoted from Vino:

Ok where can I binge on this nonsense?
I have the flu and just had my shot of whiskey.
not a bad time. Thanks

I have bronchitis. Signed up for Hulu last night figuring I'd chug a bit of my cough medicine with codine, watch an episode or two then crash....
Apparently codine has the opposite effect on me. I was WIRED. Wound up watching 10 episodes last night before forcing myself to get some rest( 2am).
Good show. Really enjoyed it.

#1363 10 months ago

Christ, some of you people have serious issues. Why not take all your fang club/waaa...they're only making 750 games bitching and start a separate thread to cry amongst yourselves.

Can we switch to talking about possible game modes and playfield features?

#2159 10 months ago
Quoted from PinballSTAR:

Since I'm getting a ton of emails about our process at PinballSTAR :
Interested list is just that - it's to tell us you're interested - it is not a spot in line. Not one game has been sold by us yet and not one deposit has been taken and not one spot has been assigned or reserved for anyone. I will not take deposits until we are live. I'm sorry - once I do a 'favor' to someone then I'm being unfair to everyone else, I won't do it. That also means past customers and new customers get the same shake. In the past we have tried to favor prior customers with guaranteeing a spot and putting them early, but frankly at this point since I've been a Spooky distributor from the beginning there are now so many Spooky games and Spooky customers it's impossible to do that. When we go live everyone will be on equal footing and have same chance at a game through PinballSTAR.
So... if you asked to be on our interested list last week or will later today or tomorrow - you will all be in the same position. Because you emailed me you were interested didn't put you early and didn't guarantee you a spot with us. I'm just spelling that out for everyone so it's clear as there is some confusion on that point. The interested list was just you telling us 'we're interested' then we know to keep you in the loop for the official Spooky reveal.
Our process is when Spooky says it's time to go live - then we will send our typical 'ORDERING IS OPEN' email out and in there there will be a paypal link to click on and pay - easy - when we sell out then the link will no longer work. Please DO NOT call me, DO NOT email me to order - there is no way we can handle things that way - I have to control quantities and I can't be on the phone and email and paypal etc... I will not accept checks to be mailed later, etc... Only paypal so quantities can be controlled and shut off when we are out. I do not want to oversell and have anyone upset.
Sorry for the strictness - it is done out of the desire to be as fair to everyone as we can, not play favorites, and not disappoint anyone. I wish it was easier, it's not a fun position for me to be in. I at least hope I have your respect I am trying to be fair, transparent, and not play games with my customer base. This is the only way I do things and I'm not going to change now. Being Spooky's largest distributor have a fairly large allotment so I have plenty to sell, but it seems they will all go quickly regardless.
If you want on our email list to get our email blast when things go live - email me at - that's it - then wait.
…and thank you to everyone for your interest, excitement, and support of PinballSTAR and our mutual friends at Spooky Pinball !
oh, and I have 1 Alice Cooper left - in a box, ready to ship - contact me if interested...

#2956 10 months ago
Quoted from kermit24:

What does the BS edition get besides the powder coating? In the key post, Charlie mentioned some other surprises he couldn’t talk about yet before reveal.

I think I read more callouts than the standard. Is that correct?

#2963 10 months ago
Quoted from rai:

No. Just cosmetic stiff like the aroma and speaker cover (speaker light is extra).

I read this as the bs edition gets extra sound/callouts...

Price is $6995 .... The Blood Suckers edition is an additional $525 if you choose that upgrade. With no expense spared on the design, many quality updgrades, video, music, speech, and a HUGE custom speech package from star and co-creater of Rick and Morty, Justin Roiland, we feel this is one VERY special game at a great price!

#5137 10 months ago

I don't mind waiting. Only thing I'm afraid of happening again is what I did while I was waiting for my TNA.....I had to scratch the itch and bought three games while I was waiting.

#5862 10 months ago

Can't wait to see some game play vids. Like what I see but do think it would've been cool to have a portal shot similar to LOTR ring shot.

#5873 10 months ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

Nah, this isnt a company that rehashes the same ideas over and over, sorry.

That's the reason I said Similar. According to your logic, they shouldn't use ramps/pops....

I would've like to seen something a little cooler with the portal shot. Who knows, maybe after some more vids, it may be pretty cool. Can't wait to see what this pin becomes.

No. And Pickle Rick isn’t going far; just not exactly where he is on that prototype.

#5957 10 months ago

Maybe you'll like the main mech in the middle. Not a "sculpt " toy but looks to be very interactive with a lot of code potential.

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Same for you bud. Hope everything goes well.

#6056 10 months ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

How many (Playable) balls did they say are in the game? 4 total?
I would like to see a “hunt” mode.
Keara Hunt
The playfield is a single color, maybe green like a jungle as a nod to predator?. The target is a single lit insert that slowly pulses red only slightly at first like a ping, the target insert moves quickly around the board. Maybe the next insert could start to change slightly to red ahead of time to give you an idea of where its going?
You can charge her ability via the portal spinner when you are in this mode and the insert lights redder and it slows down moving around.
Maybe there can be multiple targets that build over time, or it builds on itself until you either kill them all or get killed.
Tons of dimensions.

And end it with a butthole shot.

#6286 10 months ago
Quoted from Mrawesome44:

I'm not attacking anyone nor have i called people out. I didn't even name the distributor that did that nor did Spooky. I have never once mentioned Kingpin games good or bad. From the few times i spoke to you. Very polite a great help and Extremely fast response times. So impressed that i recommended a few people to order from you. All i have done is make a point and ask a few questions.
Please explain to me how I'm attacking Spooky when all I have said was they allocated orders of 100+ before orders were set to go live. That's not an attack that's fact and its been confirmed.
But I'll ask the question again since the answer you gave had nothing to do with my original question.
If the premise of getting a Rick and Morty was based on "FIRST COME FIRST SERVE". Does Holding spots and making newcomers wait a day after repeat customers equal "FIRST COME FIRST SERVE"?. It's a yes or no question. You didn't need to write a whole paragraph explaining your whole operation
Once again I have never spoken your name,insulted or called you out so if you feel attacked your on a island by yourself. I respect your business I wish you nothing but all the success in the world. If you want to have a conversation or speak further you have my contact information
Ps. I'm not frustrated with Joe. Guy works hard and i respect that.

Blah, blah, blah, bSlah, bTlah, bFlah, bUlah.
It's old.

#6416 10 months ago
Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:

To be fair, I think a lot of people were good little boys about setting their alarms, having the spooky page up and logged in prior to launch, already decided on BSE, then upon launch clicking buy instantly only to watch the site spin and in a panic they jump to back up plan Joe after 5 minutes only to realize that means 2021 now with a 500+ number...and to twist the knife further...less than a minute and a half sooner order with Joe would have resulted in 6-8 months less wait time
Might as well have just rolled out of bed from a drunken stupor and ordered whenever

#6816 9 months ago
Quoted from PoMC:

If you’re buying this pin, you’re not concerned that ACNC has so many serious problems that have yet to be resolved by Spooky?
Sure, this is your dream theme, but so was Alice Cooper for those buyers. Now they’re stuck with a game that constantly resets due to memory leaks and many issues with the mechs. I have two friends with ACNC and no way I was going to even think about buying Rick and Morty until I saw Spooky could finish their prior game.

Not worried here. Have TNA and ACNC. No issues at all.

Quoted from DruTheFu:

If anyone knows of a blacklight, UV reactive R&M poster, it would be greatly appreciated. I'd love to add one to my collection, and haven't had any luck finding one yet.
(I know, this is a pin thread, not a poster thread, but worth a shot) link »

#7354 9 months ago
Quoted from DruTheFu:

Unless it is printed with UV-reactive inks, it's not a blacklight compatible poster, and is just a pretty neon colored posted. I'm looking for specifically a R&M poster that is printed with UV-inks and reacts to blacklights and pops/glows under a blacklight.
Thanks though, I appreciate the looking out.

I have a couple non-blacklight posters in my room that still pop.

#7356 9 months ago

How's about posting a flooble crank pic.
I'm about 3 weeks burned out of bitching about the ordering process.

#7385 9 months ago
Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

Lol.... soon! The guy who does that is on a 50th birthday trip and I don't want to see his phone blow up for a few days.

Is the knocker going to be used for the extra ball ala ACNC? If so, that may be the reason I add it. I do like that.

#7436 9 months ago
Quoted from ViperJelly:

I believe you are looking at the flooblecrank. Once hit it actually moves a captive ball behind it and counts for points and might be the way you charge the magna-save battery. Someone correct me here.

I'd like to see a close up pic of it. Hope it's strong.

#7444 9 months ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

It does go all the way through and is nutted on both sides. It is a custom machined piece with threads on both parts that protrude through the bottom of the playfield. But in all honesty, the pinball will be destroyed before this post gets beat up.

Cool. I was worried that I may bust my nutted part, especially with it being coated in megaseed oil.

#7543 9 months ago

Will all the flooble cranks be the same size? I'm hoping my has a little more girth so I can whack it easier.

#7546 9 months ago
Quoted from titanpenguin:

You’re stuck with the flooble crank Spooky sends ya. You’ll just have to make do like the rest of us.

I heard it's a exact mold of Scott's flooble.

This is a great interview! Listening to Scott describe the gameplay made my nipples hard. I'm only getting more excited for this game the more I hear about it.

Are legs optional, or are they all getting delivered with Whoa Nellie crates?

#9076 9 months ago
Quoted from dnapac:

I would doubt they would make it an option if it was extensively used. Just MHO

ACNC uses it for xball, which is cool. Other than in-game uses like that, I don't have use for a knocker. I'd like to know if it does have in-game use on R&M

#9394 8 months ago
Quoted from drfrightner:

I agree the Rick and Morty Superbowl ad didn't hurt this game at all but didn't help either unless Spooky plans to announce another 250 games. I'll make a superbowl prediction... an announcement will happen at some point 250 more games.
What is the line on that? 2 1/2 to 1 maybe?

Uh oh. Look at all those thumbs down. That's gonna keep you real busy stalking all those downvoters.

#10056 8 months ago

Quoted from HEAD_boss_HOG:

I just watched the SMB show on the Adult Swim web channel. Interesting and Revelatory to say the least. Lets just say that THEME is the ONLY reason the game will fetch 7k or 8k, depending on whatever optioned out version any customer will buy of this game. If this were a non licensed theme (ie America's Most Haunted), this game would NEVER sell 200 units, let alone 750 in 4 hours before a full reveal. I suppose this is old news, but actually seeing the game in action is today's topic, so.........
This game is cool because of theme and integration ONLY. Why? Ask yourself "What does this game have to offer on the playfield which is valuable, unique, or engaging and interactive to the player?"
1. a pop bumper sling shot: Cool idea, but far from original, novel, or significant value added to the game
2. Magna Save: again, a cool idea, but NOTHING new
3. Single Subway (garage to portal eject over left flipper): another cool idea, but NOT new
4. two ramps (plastic, if i remember correctly). the ramps do very little "traveling" or curving, so its kind of Gomez-like in the return to flipper.
5. three flippers (extra 45 bucks for the third flipper, if not less)
6. space ship toy (Kerins said that this was "off the shelf", meaning it was not new for this game, which makes it significantly cheaper than designing and manufacturing a new specific toy for this game only). The toy is on a SPRING (See SW)
7. Horseshoe lock mech. THIS is the thing which seems sort of novel, but certainly not a significant addition mechanically, aesthetically, or otherwise. I will say that the physical lock is pretty dang cool, and I'm glad they got it working well.
8. Scoop in the MIDDLE of the PF. another awkward position for a scoop, like TNA
Considering the foregoing, it is readily apparent that the playfield design is neither exciting, nor novel. There is nothing unique, unconventional, or otherwise ground braking about the design, ball path, or mechs in this game, to say nothing about the true value of any part of it or the sum of its parts. I am disappointed in the layout, and the lack of real mechs or interactive toys on this game. Scott Danesi came on this forum and explained that he wasn't worried about the lack of toys on the game because Modders would come out with stuff we could buy. I respect his honesty, but that does not excuse Spooky from being willfully cheap and refusing to implement creative and value adding mechanical devices to the game. Danesi went on to brag about having 16 opto switches in the game. WOWEEEEE!!! SWITCHES!!!!! that's what we all want more of to make our experience so much more enjoyable!!!! (sarcasm) Why not just include a bag of opto switches for us to play with when we cant be home to play our pinball games?
I really love this show, so i was hoping for more. I am bummed. I have heard it over and over that this playfield is conventional and uninspired, not to mention bereft of any real mechanical, interactive devices to affect gameplay and the ball path. I really wanted this to be Spooky's STEP UP in game design. It is not. It is, however, a fantastic theme integration that they have done. I can't wait to see the screen and hear the callouts. But, we all know, we can just buy seasons one through four to see the show and hear Rick's banter. we don't need to spend 8000 dollars to see the show and hear Rick scream at Morty.
I will hand it to spooky for getting this awesome license, but alas, perhaps the license was too expensive to allow them to really give the customers a robust playfield with more to do and engage.
I don't mean to be a thorn in this thread; i just wanted to share my true reaction. I think any buyer will be thrilled to have this game for their own reasons. My reasons for buying a pinball are at least 65-75% layout and design, which includes what I have discussed is missing in this game. The remainder is a hodge podge of art, theme, and sound. I hope the future owners of this game have a great experience from what the game has to offer. I just know that unless that Playfield gets an overhaul, I am not going to be owning one any time soon.
Best Regards,
The one and only BOSS HOG

Enjoying your IMDN that is overloaded with interactive mechs and subways and innovative features?

Quoted from f3honda4me:

Anyone else having a delay on hearing about their order from C137 designs for custom image from R&M? When I ordered, it said 7-10 days, but I'm going on day 12.

Same. I think they are flooded.

#10471 8 months ago

Now enjoy your 18month wait for one of the last to be built. lol.

Nice bidding, Jerry's.

btw, I'm entertaining opening bids starting at $40k for my early game.

#10697 8 months ago
Quoted from NeilMcRae:

apart from the few hundred TNA playfields out in the wild that are totalled because of the pooling and chipping issue that Stern and JJP have also had? I don't think Spooky do anything miraculous that gives them a competitive edge on playfields.
Honestly stop talking rubbish.
(I came to an arrangement with spooky on mine that I'm cool with if not totally happy, and recognising Spooky are a small outfit the fact that Charlie tried his best to make something work is the reason I placed an order for R&M).

"few hundred" totalled palyfields? Where in the world do you pull this shit from?

#10769 8 months ago
Quoted from NeilMcRae:

I call them facts! People started to see this problem at game number 90ish. I was game number 102. Aniraf linked above was #218. Folks with game number 400 where seeing this also (floyd1977). All through the thread there are games from 90s all the way into the 400's. sorry but important to have a balanced view on these things.

Huh. I know several people that have TNA's with no playfield issues, therefore I say hundreds have zero issues. Funny how that can be with only hundreds made in total.

#11108 8 months ago
Quoted from monkfe:

I ordered Jan 30th, still haven't heard from them...

Anything yet? I ordered 1/31 and haven't heard. I assume they are busy, so I haven't emailed yet asking.

#11287 8 months ago
Quoted from manadams:

I think it depends on who you get the silicone rubbers from. Spooky gets them from Pinball Life I believe and they are bouncy as hell.

My stock ACNC rubbers are great. I don't find them bouncy at all.
