I'M SHOCKED.

A pinball machine themed after something from the 21st century.

#246 1 year ago

Being a prior Spooky customer, and knowing how they care about their product and customers, they are only ones in the industry that would even stand a chance of getting any of my NIB money.

And now with a relevant theme like Rick and Morty, in my mind, they are the only pinball company that matters.

#257 1 year ago
Quoted from mzhulk:

They should of kept the spooky theme and created a Evil dead or Halloween pin.

This isn't the stone age dude. Not everybody is stuck in the 70s or 80s. lol.

#277 1 year ago
Quoted from drfrightner:Stern I think announces a new game in a couple weeks, JJP will have something in a month or two, Deep Root is announcing games. Lots of stuff coming soon!

I can hardly wait.

I bet this is going to kill it on location. Every location.

Will 750 units be enough?

#308 1 year ago
Quoted from Daditude:

No.
I was thinking the same thing. This demand for this is probably a LOT more than 750

Once it and word gets out, no doubt.

It's the perfect storm of pinball that's been in the media quite a bit lately and finally a theme super relevant to now.

I know several locations already this would be perfect for.

#314 1 year ago

One of my pinball friends who is in his early 20s just called. He is quite good in tournaments and has played every game imaginable.

I've never heard him so excited about a theme in the five years him and his dad have been coming over. He's always putting R+M an my TV whenever he's here. lol. I go way back on adult swim myself. This is going to be good.

#319 1 year ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

When can we order? Thanks.

My thoughts exactly. I'm looking for the line for repeat customers.

#322 1 year ago

A thought has been going thru my head. I remember when South Park saved pinball soley on theme. For some reason, when I think about it, this is about the most excited about a theme as I have been since then.

#327 1 year ago

It was the only game in town. Think about it. The year was 1999

The one I played was in a pizza joint called Double D. It told me pinball was still alive. And it had the profanity roms, so I dumped as many quarters as needed.

#332 1 year ago
Quoted from dirkdiggler:If South Park would have been inside the Pladium bar at West Ed in 1999 instead of swe1, I wouldn't have gone nearly 10 years without playing a new pinball again. I thought what the Hell happened to pinball after 2 games of swe1 and had no interest of playing more.

As a seasoned player the only thing wrong with South Park were the huge scoring holes in the playfield. But when all the other pinball places dried up, it was a good game to get my fix. Even my infant daughter at the time found it amusing.

#338 1 year ago

Back in the 1990s a buddy told me there should be there should be a Ren and Stimpy game. I guess it's too late for that.

#430 1 year ago
Quoted from Borygard:

I truly haven't been this excited about a new game since TZ was new.

Well, that beats me on South Park for sure.

#444 1 year ago

Never heard of it.

#458 1 year ago
Quoted from benheck:

Cartoon pins are an untapped gold mine.

Meanwhile over at Stern-

"What we need to do now is reboot The Flintstones. But this time we are going to base it on the original animated TV series.

And we need to have it ready by Christmas"

#464 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Hey don't forget the SUPREME video had like a million views! Right Odin?

I want the Rick and Morty Supreme edition.

Sorry, but have they released pics or price yet? I'm still in a little haze from last night.

Thank you.

Quoted from bgwilly31:

Sooooo how Many people are big fans of R+M that DONT Smoke pot?

#481 1 year ago
Quoted from chooch:

Whatever price they were considering likely just went up considering how people are tripping over each other to send money now without seeing any pics.

Thankfully, I for one am not one to get caught up in any pinside hype. Emotions in check. Barely.

#487 1 year ago

One thing about Spooky games, when the mystery box arrives, there is usually no mystery. Best damn playfields in the business.

#498 1 year ago
Quoted from PW79:

Stern really should have picked up the Rick & Morty license for the Iron Maiden PF.

Then nobody would want it.

#507 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Metalocalypse would be cool too.

I've been asking for that one for years.

Sign me up for a William Murderface LE.

#511 1 year ago
Quoted from bgwilly31:

Theres no way in hell Stern would do this theme. Wayyyyy to vulgar with the language and content.

Have they even used a swear word since Met? lol

#514 1 year ago
Quoted from fisherdaman:

Remember when AC/DC first came out and there was a segment of pinside that thought that they had too much devil references in it?

Yep.

Thankfully, when in need, my T-2 will still tell me "F#@k You A$$hole"

#527 1 year ago

I am now an official Fang Club member too.

Quoted from homebrood:

Wow this thread has legs! 11 Pages in less than 24 hours!

Sure didn't peter out as fast as that Led Zeppelin thread.

#544 1 year ago
Quoted from Vino:

They were the first with the recent pf issues that impacted a handful of us. Mainly left unnoticed by the numbers compared to the JJP/sterns.
To their credit they were responsive, have since resolved issues, and will consider a future purchase.

I know, I was one of them. And was taken care of in less than 15 minutes after reporting it. Not getting into details, but it was not caused by the quality of the wood or the clearcoat.

#560 1 year ago
Quoted from ufotofu:

If Spooky followed the same logic as Munsters

I was like 3 years old when that show was on. lol.

Like I really want a pinball machine to remind me of my toddler days. lol.

#565 1 year ago

Munsters was the perfect theme at the perfect time.

Convinced me to send my money to Spooky and get a TNA.

#577 1 year ago
Quoted from ThatOneDude:

Yeah, I'm kidding. I own a Munster Premium, and I'm in my 40s.

So the logic is to market to those that wish they were toddlers when I was?

#582 1 year ago

On a side note-

Charlie is way cool. Too cool for school.

#585 1 year ago
Quoted from transprtr4u:

When are they going to release pictures of the game?

Join the fang club and you will be one of the first to know.

#588 1 year ago
Quoted from ThatOneDude:

I think I'm an outlier when it comes to themes like Elvira and Munsters. My wife and I were both fans of those shows(and the original Addams Family, and the late night horror shows, etc) growing up, even though they were deep in syndication by then.

I get it. When Munsters first ran, I was more into a show that was already in syndication.

But I'm not holding my breath we'll ever see a The Lone Ranger pinball machine.

#590 1 year ago
Quoted from Looking4FirstPin:

I know this may be a silly question, but where does one join the Fang Club? I cant find it on Spooky’s website, aside from a Fang Club sweatshirt.

Click on "shop" then upper right hand corner.

#596 1 year ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

All this hype before we have seen a pic, watched a vid or seen a game.

I trust what Borygard has to say. He's a straight shooter if there ever was one.

Quoted from Borygard:

I truly haven't been this excited about a new game since TZ was new. Everything I've seen to date, has this game on track to being a smash hit. They've nailed everything!

#606 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

I’m pretty sure a large group of the Fanbase cannot afford pinball machines.

Same with those Elvira and Munsters fans scraping by between social security checks.

#615 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

It's actually a gen Xer playing with a Gen Z, but thats close enough for the internet.

It will be those that are or think like Millenials and GenZ playing mine. We don't want nothing to do with GenX around here.

#618 1 year ago
Quoted from metallik:

Says the dude rockin' a BM66... that show is 15 years older than Movie Macabre. See you at the bridge club, O-din!

I got rid of that thing faster than you can say geritol.

No bullshit edition.

Sign me up for that model please.

#625 1 year ago
Quoted from metallik:

Just as LS was getting it to be pretty fun?

It was like Met, I couldn't take it anymore before they even made it out of beta code.

I was trying to be hip with the pinside crowd but found I wasn't being hip with myself. Lesson learned.

#636 1 year ago
Quoted from metallik:

Wouldn't it be something if every R&M got snapped up by a prior Spooky customer? OTOH it would be quite the bummer if 750 wasn't enough to satisfy even *that* demand....

At least it won't be anything like that TBL EA debacle. I got my message in already. Not sure what good it's going to do as far as place in line, but I'm buying one.

Quoted from metallik:

'Gratz on the TnA, I assume that replaced the caped crusaders?

Yes it did. But the caped crusader went on location where it has been earning very good ever since. As far as met, my musical tastes had changed dramatically since I was an 80s headbanger and I just couldn't go back there. It was a well built solid machine though.

#642 1 year ago
Quoted from tomdotcom:

Spooky posted why. Read their posts in this thread.

I had a hard time finding it but it got hidden in the quote of this post-

Quoted from Zablon:

but..but..I'm a GenX-er...

You just come on over here and become one with us hipsters for at least the evening and you will be more than welcome to partake.

Quoted from Electrocute:

Right now it’s just a theme with no machine.

This isn't deeproot, chum.

#647 1 year ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

Say's the guy who probably introduced Suprime to a bunch of Pinsiders. The pinball machine was seriously my first introduction to the brand...and I'm considered a Millennial.

I'm just trying to stay hip, man.

#653 1 year ago

Sure, I'd rather have someone else make it with a mirco playfield than a Spooky.

#660 1 year ago
Quoted from ThatOneDude:

That would make a great retro EM game....

I've had enough EMS with cowboys.

I want a Lone Ranger with a mega sound system blasting the theme song and a full size LCD screen! Black and white of course.

#664 1 year ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

I just hope this brings more people to pinball and advances the hobby.

I've never really cared much about this "bring more people into pinball" thing.

However there is no doubt in my mind once this game goes on location in some of the breweries and other spots in the college town I live in, it is going to be a huge hit with not just regular pinball players, but a much younger crowd as well.

Again, don't think they won't be making enough of these to fill demand.

#674 1 year ago
Quoted from jorant:

Who the hell are the Munsters?

Isn't that those chocolate stuffed cookies they don't make anymore?

#676 1 year ago

Whatever gets you laid smart guy..

I was going to say if you show me your IQ, I'll show you mine.

But then you had to go and point out it's a guy.

Not a guy. LOL

If you show me your IQ, I'll show you mine.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

How many of those fans are prepared to drop $7k on the spot? Much like no Star Wars or Beatles fan is going to drop coin, no R&M fan will either.

You must understand, R+M fans are super intelligent. Meaning most of them have figured out how to make money without doing too much.

#687 1 year ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

I'm excited just cause OD is finally excited about a theme!

I've had a boner since last night. Viagra? Pfffffttttt.....

Gen X is vastly overlooked......and underestimated.

I try to do both whenever possible.

#717 1 year ago

Yep. You get to be the Cyberdrunk now.

#718 1 year ago
Quoted from Extraballz:

Let me guess. A handsome GenX dude stole your women in the 90s?

Not quite. lol. I never considered myself part of one generation or another. Once you do and are content with that, as you get older it tends to stunt your growth and you start longing for things from the past instead of just remembering them and stop moving forward into the future. At least that's the way I see it.

#722 1 year ago
Quoted from bangerjay:That was last week

Well I've been drunk for almost a week, so that explains that.

#727 1 year ago
Quoted from bangerjay:

Can I interest you in a cybertruck?

I'll get back to you in a few hours when I'm super cyberdrunk.

#730 1 year ago

I've got Killer Klowns recorded. Might make for a good cyberdrunk watch later tonight.

#732 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

An Evil Dead pin would do way better than a KKFOS would....as would an Alien pin *cough*...

I'm still holding out for the KKFOS prequel, a Hardbodies pinball machine.

I was so hammered last night I had a vision of spinners in the outlanes.

Quoted from yancy:

Odin beat me to the punch... line.

Never underestimate a member of the blank generation.

#763 1 year ago

Sounds like bangerjay has better things to do than watch crappy TV shows. Speaking of which, Cowboys sure are crappy tonight.

#889 1 year ago

My 21 year old daughter's return phone call when asked if I should buy Rick and Morty.

"Heck Ya! Everybody I know loves that show!"

Do you think 750 will be enough of these?

"No way!"

#891 1 year ago

She said there was a lot more buzz about it a couple years ago but it is still very popular.

For those that say young people can't afford these things, she is in her fourth year of college and has a job where she makes more money than I do. Not that she is going to buy it, but her and her friends do go out to places where something like this would definitely catch their attention and it would certainly get played.

#894 1 year ago
Quoted from Deaconblooze:

If I'm an operator, there's 0 chance I'm not putting this out on location. The show has a really strong following, and it's very relevant TODAY (rare).

If I'm an operator, I'm putting one in one of the breweries or night spots where the college kids in my town hang out. There is a rec center in the basement of the local university where I used to play that this would be perfect for.

#896 1 year ago

The way I see it is we've already planted the seed by having our own games they can play. Now give them the themes they can relate to, and the rest will take care of itself.

#904 1 year ago
Quoted from Deaconblooze:

750 isn't going to be "enough".

1 will be enough for me.

#907 1 year ago
Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

I have seriously been called a sonofabitch more in the last 2 days than my other 51 years combined.

Then I'm calling you a gentleman and a scholar, or an officer and a gentleman, or whatever gets me on the list for a game.

#926 1 year ago
Quoted from cjchand:

According to Wikipedia - yeah, I know, but work with me here - seems the audience keeps growing:
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_Rick_and_Morty_episodes#Ratings
Dunno what happened on S3E1, but the trend is definitely "up and to the right".

No doubt about that. But my point was it is not just older people that have been watching adult swim for years like myself. It has crossed over to all walks of life.

Except maybe those that have been stuck in their ways for years, but there're still plenty of other pinball machines for them.

#960 1 year ago
Quoted from delt31:

Replace GnR with iron maiden and then you have the old men title. Do the math

Haven't figured out which is older than I, but I believe old man Axl was born 4 days after I was.

All I can say is thank goodness I'm not old... or fat.

#965 1 year ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Or anyone lately to be honest.

I haven't heard of any of deeproots games breaking down on location or in home use yet.

#979 1 year ago

I do need to reserve my judgment until I have a chance to play it.

You'll be able to play mine next time you're in cali... with all the fixins.

Quoted from pinmister:

What really makes me happy is seeing people's excitement! Yes I will be checking it out for sure!

What really make me happy is when you and yours show up at the door.

#991 1 year ago
Quoted from 6S3NC3:I called yesterday afternoon, about 200 members in the club. Im sure that bumped up a bit.

I'm certainly one of them.

Kinda wondering with more distributers now, which would be the best way to go to get an early spot even if you are already a past Spooky customer.

I have decided to go straight to the source as Charlie, as busy as he must be, seems to have no problem replying to e-mails pronto. Like I said before, he's too cool for school.

Quoted from pinmister:

Been craving me some El Farolito with Nimblenuts-hopefully sooner than later fo sho.

We can certainly do that.

Nitro Amusements (WA Based)

I believe that is it for USA distributors.

I guess Wisconsin is about as close as any to where I live anyway.

The distributer in my town only sells new Stern, JJP, American, and CGC.

I do however go by there once a week to say hello.

#1008 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

Order from Spooky, they are good people.

I did the last one and it showed up in a box. The dude even carted it to my garage so I could unbox it proper.

#1013 1 year ago
Quoted from Sticky:

You can tell who the old guys are just by going through the thread and seeing some of these posts. Guys wondering what this is or suggesting themes that nobody born after 2000 has ever heard of.
Not bagging on any of you for your age but come on, Evil Dead? Halloween? Someone mentioned Munsters?

I had to go back and quote this. And say years of age has nothing to do with it. Now I'm going to go finish knitting.

#1020 1 year ago
Quoted from PW79:

In summary if Stern made it you won’t buy it because Stern sucks & if Spooky is making it you can’t buy it because they won’t produce enough.

750 total games. That is it. No more and no less.

Let me go get my reading glasses.

Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Be you hate Iron Maiden music too and like trendy alternative crap

Not that I hate it, but that shit's so outdated I can't even listen to it anymore.

I wonder why the announcement of 750 total made?

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/rick-amp-morty-pinball-from-spooky/page/6#post-5335828

"we often limit to what we feel we can do in a timely manner that is a fair wait time for the customer. Also the limit is a huge part of the draw for some people and makes it cool when you can get ahold of one!"

#1130 1 year ago
Quoted from Fytr:

And honestly paying for a poster and the priviledge of ordering first (Fang Club) is distasteful, but I guess "Capitalism".

I had considered sending in a silly video about how much I deserved to own one, but the $45 seemed a little easier on my own self respect.

#1141 1 year ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

It should be made clearer that this membership does NOT (apparently) secure them a copy of RaM.

I hope it at least gets me a secret decoder ring.

#1185 1 year ago

I love the entire presentation so far and have not been this excited about a new pinball machine since they would just drop them on location with no internet input. I'm already thinking BS might be in my future.

My only question is will the order in which somebody joined the Fang Club have anything to do with the order in which members are allowed to purchase? I'm one of those guys that can sometimes go a week without checking my e-mails although I'll be checking them more frequent now.

#1190 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

You can order the day of the reveal.

Will it be like how the west was won, or will there be some order ?

#1664 1 year ago
Quoted from metallik:

If someone is really curious where the number is right at this moment, it only costs $45 to find out...

With my luck I'll get # 1751.

#1678 1 year ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Star Wars LE...
BlackKnightSOR...
MMR (before they introduced standards..)
and the list goes on and on.

Not a one of those is a theme from the 21st century that hasn't even peaked yet, so please continue...

#1681 1 year ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

So only 'new' hype counts when talking about hype that's never been seen before? gotcha...

For me it does.

When you use the words "Star Wars" and "new" in the same sentence, it kind of like one of those oxy morons.

I think the folks at Spooky might be spending a little too much time on Pinside.

#1700 1 year ago
Quoted from SpookyCharlie:

Yes... we are!
Taking a small break while we play test ... stuff and things.

I bet you guys keep it real fun around there. I'd apply if I lived close by. I could mop the floors, pick up lunch, or even assemble a game or two.

#1704 1 year ago
Quoted from northerndude:

Anyone else scour this pic for a lucky hint? LOL

Yes. I noticed Scott looks like an even more determined mad genius than he has in the past.

#1715 1 year ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Didn't say the theme was new... his comment was "But what other Pin in the last 10 years checks all 3 of these boxes?". You are the one that introduced the idea of the topic had to be recent..

Well, one of the boxes to check was Rick and Morty. And none that you posted were that.

#1717 1 year ago
Quoted from Rondogg:

J/K, everyone in this thread who wants one is going to get one.

Well then lets just hope Rick and Morty fans outside the pinball world are as poor, dumb, and slow as many in this thread seem to think they are.

I hear they take like 5 coffee breaks a day too.

I don't feel so bad about only doing less than 10 smog inspections some days like today. No wonder I can relate.

Quoted from MikeS:

You can't penalize people that are waiting up to a year and a half for a game. A lot can happen in that timeframe. People get divorced, lose jobs, get married, have babies, recessions happen, etc.

Others just play pinball and get drunk and the year passes right by. I suppose a heart attack or liver failure might throw a wrench in that wait though.

#1856 1 year ago

This is like the 90s, when the pinball machines introduced many to the themes.

I've seen the show before, but have been waiting for someone the industry to go this route for a long time. Glad it's Spooky. I'm almost sure it wouldn't be anybody else.

#1859 1 year ago
Quoted from Coindork:

Hell, I've still never seen The Shadow or Creature From the Black Lagoon.

I didn't even know there was a movie Shadow when I first played the game. That's what it was like. Can't say I had never heard of Star Wars or Willy Wonka when those games came out.

#1871 1 year ago
Quoted from docquest:

You really owe it to yourself to see the original Creature From the Black Lagoon.

Yep. I've seen it so many times I've lost track. Including a couple weeks ago. It is a "smart" horror movie.

#2252 1 year ago

I'm assuming we will also be getting hit for that almost 10% Ca. sales tax upon purchase.

No problem. If people can afford new pinball machines, then they should pay their taxes as well.

#2254 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

For $750 in taxes, drive to Vegas and pick it up there maybe?

I pay so little taxes anyway, I'm not going to play this get around it game anymore.

The only game I want to play is Rick and Morty.

I had to google Spin and Marty. lol. Just a tad before my time. Hahaha!

In my world, even Ren and Stimpy is an antique theme.

#2300 1 year ago

With my property tax of $1000 a year, I think I can manage it. After all, a house is just a luxury item.

#2303 1 year ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Who’s charging you 10% sales tax?

It's a llittle less but it's called use tax, and either you pay it upon time of out of state purchase, or when you file your state tax, or when they come a knocking, whichever comes last.

#2305 1 year ago

Where's all the hot glue?

#2317 1 year ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

Taxation is theft :p

If it will help pay to fix the street in front of my house so it doesn't throw chunks of asphalt at me while I'm mowing the lawn, I don't mind throwing in a few bucks to do that.

#2320 1 year ago
Quoted from Pball:

Yes, Spooky has to charge CA sales tax now. I received my ACNC two weeks ago and they had to charge tax.

It is what it is. Some states have no sales tax and crazy high property taxes. My property tax is super low relatively speaking. Nobody wants to pay any taxes, but somehow they gotta pay to keep things running. And keep all those fancy suits up in Sacramento living high on the hog.

#2322 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

you know the only reason your taxes are low is because you are old and have lived in the same place forever. Grandfathered rule.

Close, but I am not old. It was my old grandma that bought the house in 1966 and keeping it in the family that keeps taxes low. She wouldn't let grandpa move in. Something about a Christmas blowout at our house where she yelled at him snd he dropped a bottle of Jack Daniels in the driveway.

#2325 1 year ago
Quoted from ausretrogamer:

We’ve now gone to taxes. We all know the certainties in life, unfortunately taxes are one of them. Now, back to our regular Rick & Morty schedule

I just wanted to point that out. I knew when I paid sales tax on my Fang Club membership, that like death, NIB pinball tax was now inevitable.

#2331 1 year ago
Quoted from P1nhead:

Legislatively, in the majority of states, that is what the gas tax is supposed to be for.

In our state legislatively, they use the funds to fight the people that want to fix the shit.

I’m not waiting 18 months on any pin despite the FOMO factor reaching peak levels right now!!!

So you took the refund deeproot offered? Or were you even in on that?

#2408 1 year ago

I guess I'm too young to worry about little shit like how many coils or did they put Rick on the right side when he should be on the left side, or even if the gap between the flippers is 1 millimeter wider than the last game.

Even with what has been revealed so far, I already love the game. Glad I'm not old and set in my ways.

#2414 1 year ago

I bought my Toyota and drove it away the same day. I don't wait on mass produced cars. I am however willing to wait my turn for Rick and Morty.

Quoted from The_Casual:

Drinking o-din, you meant drinking.

And fixing my friends brakes and oil leaks for free because he cut off the end of his finger. lol. I can be a nice guy that way. It was a big time and not a time to think about what would be happening at 7:00 AM the next morning.

It's almost guaranteed someone will sell their spot. You'll have opportunities if you really want it!

Did you get one Spicoli or did those "tasty buds" cause you to oversleep?

I'll let you know when I actually do wake up. lol.

I'm sure nobody here really wants to know what went on last night. lol. Or my comatose conversations with nimble pin this AM. I gotta get this brake fluid off me from yesterday is all I know.

I'm in!

Not really. My day's just getting started.

#4007 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

But in order to pull this off, you need a theme that gets people excited.

I seriously doubt Rick and Morty was on any of the other companies radar. And many in charge of those companies may have never even heard of it before now.

It's also very hard for people to change or accept new things once they are set in their ways. There is still a huge market for them and their themes anyway.

#4016 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

Maybe form some of the manufactures, but definitely not all. AP themes are have not been strong.

Yeah, I wasn't really pointing out one or another, just the general way pinball as a whole has been for a while.

This game will sure freshen up that landscape.

#4021 1 year ago
Quoted from Goronic:

Stranger Things should help Stern with that. It is a 'no brainer' theme, and actually relevant today. I am worried that they are going to botch ST - but I sure hope that they don't!!!

Good for them! It's not anything I'm really interested in, and I'm glad it is Spooky doing this one.

Charlie seems very open minded when it comes to young talent like Scott and sort of giving him a lot of his own latitude with themes and whatnot.

#4033 1 year ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

So... is Rick and Morty the biggest day 1 sell out in pinball history?

There may be other titles that sold that many units the first day, but going back in time to figure out which ones or how many is almost impossible due to the limited records available.

I'm sure T-2 did great as it was released to coincide with the movie's release. But again, it was not a limited production game.

#4072 1 year ago
Quoted from Thenewguy1337:

I do feel bad that non Fang members never even had a chance

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.

Quoted from tacshose:

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

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.

#4137 1 year ago
Quoted from flecom:

every year at IAAPA I harassed everyone in a Stern shirt about doing R&M, problem is they are all old and out of touch

I'm sure they are not out of touch with making money. lol. They probably could have sold more Rick and Mortys than WWE or a few other recent titles.

I'm just glad they didn't have the opportunity to cockblock the license like they did with Godzilla.

#4181 1 year ago
