Quoted from adol75:

Wow, they dont just scored the license they’ve also made it the best kept secret and are releasing it tomorrow.
Mind blown, total mindblown !
(ps : Robert check this out and learn your lessons)

And even smarter is to see this overwhelming response Before posting the cost! Smart play. My Stern Star Wars topper money has now been deserted to this Awesome game. Already sent KingPinGames 5 texts. Lol. Congrats Team Spooky this is a home run.

Quoted from bangerjay:

I’ve also never watched orange is the new black

What? A show About prisoned women taking showers and you had no interest? I’m guessing you were more of an OZ fan.

#866 1 year ago
Quoted from MikeS:

You can't go wrong either way but I'd consider it a bonus ordering through Chris at Kingpin games! He is simply the best distributor in the industry.

I'll second that! He didn't even mind me texting him till 2am when Charlie and team dropped this Awesome bomb on us. Fang member and cash in hand with Mr Christopher.

#868 1 year ago
Quoted from DruTheFu:

Looking forward to seeing some schwifty Mod Couple mods with this theme!

My wife is Already drooling over this game and ideas as she is an avid follow of this great theme.

#873 1 year ago
Quoted from Calfdemon:

The only difference I found was that if I ordered directly from Spooky, I had to pay CA sale tax, but I found a distributor that did not charge the tax. So basically that's what made my decision. I saved about $600 on my ACNC by going through a distributor. The Spooky team is still there behind the machine 100% with amazing customer service!

So basically theres no Wrong way to Spooky! I want this game!!!

#882 1 year ago
Quoted from ViriiGuy:

I wish it were Stern and not Spooky... And only because I would like to see this table hold up to being Routed.. And produced in larger numbers. With that said, I will be buying a gently used, second hand one, in the next year or two.

In my opinion Spooky games are every bit as robust if not More then Stern games. Just my opinion.

#1229 1 year ago
Quoted from pinstyle:

Nope, you are certainly not alone brother. I know of the show but I have zero interest in it. It seems to me that outside of the 100 people in this thread excited for this the rest are scratching their heads. The only thing I can think of is Spooky is a fan. None the less, if they sell them then that is great for Spooky, and if there are people out there that are excited to have one then that's all that matters.

The Shadow was one of the worst movies I ever seen but I rather love the pinball machine. Not sure I seen Medieval Madness either but that turned out to be fun also. If (and they will) they build a great game the tv show won’t matter in my view. I have however seen several TnA movies and loved them all!

#1277 1 year ago

Spooky. Please just give this thread a picture of the box it’s shipping in so we can argue about the cardboard your using and if it’s recyclable in Europe and get off the endless loop of how many your building business plan. Please! Lol

#1297 1 year ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

Ya, Im a member of The Fang now. I guess I gotta shave my head.

Did you get the secret hand shake how to email so we Know your in the club?? I suspect the club is filling in fast. Interesting play by Spooky I like it.

#1298 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballlife:

The isn't going to be Jesus walking on water, it's going to be a pinball machine. The fan driven hype behind this machine can, of course, never live up to the reality of what it will be; a ball in a box.
I can hear it now after the reveal, "What, it's just a pinball machine? I'm out!".
Well, not those exact words, but pretty much those words.

It will Never be Scoregasm!

#1316 1 year ago
Quoted from Frax:

I don't frankly care about any of this. I didn't even read more than about 30% of it. Whether or not you support fan clubs and early access type deals is irrelevant to me. Kingpin was suggesting that people should join their club even if they're not interested to support the company. My point is that I can do more than 50 or 100$ of good without taking it out of my own pocket if I convince ONE PERSON to buy a game.
You want my money...then sell me something, or let me invest. I'm not going to just give it to you for a freakin' overpriced shirt and sticker or whatever the hell it is they throw in. Everyone knows the real point of these things is the preorder privilege.

And like most clubs it’s in No way mandatory to join so why the issue. KingPinGames did not refuse to sell you a game? Nobody is Forced to join the club so to speak in buying an LE or CE or other OEM members only product. They created a platform for those Interested (not necessarily invested) in their company and team. I’ll get a game but I would have joined anyway by my choice.

#1321 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

People will always find something to bitch about...

Lol. After the membership garb that makes the BS LE version about $32 extra. Pretty much the same as the other OEMs charge for the accessorized model. Lol. Still it’s different and that Must be wrong!!

#1325 1 year ago
Quoted from Frax:

My god, you people are so blind sometimes.
Hey, would you like to join the Frax Fan Club? For only 300$, I'll guarantee you a spot on the Voltron Not-Preorder-Not-Even-An-Order list! I'm creating something pinball, throw money at me! Woo!

I would have to have interest in you, your company or product. Which I do not...

#1576 1 year ago
Quoted from SpookyLuke:

There are obviously alot of costs associated with scotts RGB spending habit lol many improvements on the game and a high profile license however i think we can all agree a wildly high price increase is not in our companies book of tricks.

You go Scott! Light that baby up! Show us your magic and knock this out of the park. Spooky for the win.

#1752 1 year ago
Quoted from sd_tom:

yeah i see the order, i do see 'membership processed' for order status. i don't even have to be logged in to see the fang club merch (bowling shirt and tshirt) so.. not a ton of warm fuzzies im actually 'in the club'.. i would expect a welcome email or something


#2437 1 year ago
Quoted from Morinack:

With regards to people flipping pins based on speculation, I have not seen anything about limiting an order to 1 machine. I have not bought from Spooky before.
Does anyone know if there will be an order limit?
And kermit24, thanks for bringing up Ticketmaster, you made me throw up in my mouth.

I was told it is limited to one game as a fang club member. Already tried....

#3341 1 year ago

Payment off to Mr KingPinGames just the long wait till final payment is due. Congrats team Spooky, you guys Earned this success and deserve this amazing outcome!!

#4038 1 year ago

Sold Out Awesome. So what is the next title Spooky? lol

#4050 1 year ago
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?

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

#4261 1 year ago

Really looking forward to this game. It’s a great time for pinball now no question and seeing inspired new designers with companies like Spooky give them creative freedoms to Dream Big is really awesome. We have so many ideas for this game it should be a fun challenge. So look forward to our games arrival and excited we were one of the lucky few.

#4714 1 year ago
Quoted from mbasnight:

I’m a low order number so I’m thinking maybe first or second month of shipping so I’m even more anxious. Refreshing email again...

Not to burst anyones bubble on assumed ship dates or numbers but it did seem there were other variables at play that Spooky and the distributors noted early on specifically (and rightfully) long term Spooky supporters of their other games getting priority. While I have an early number I Totally respect that they would take care of the clients that supported getting them to this point. Could be wrong but I do recall that was mentioned and a few distributors backed that priority list. Managing expectations...

#4727 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

I have a butter TNA if you are in the Wisconsin Dells area and want to stop over.

Do be careful #f3honda4me asking Christopher for Any selfies of buttered up objects. You may be frightened by what he sends you!!!!

#4738 1 year ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

We text back and forth now and then. Should I be worried?

While one of the Top distributors out there let's just say I am Certain he doesn't have an HR department lol.

#4744 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

You all are crazy if you think this is just going to magically go off without a hitch. There will be part problems, line problems, quality problems that slow production down. Just plan on waiting an indefinite amount of time if you aren't numbers 1-50.

Orrrrr as this is not their first rodeo they may find refined processes/setups and improve on their estimated throughput? Glass half full could be just as crazy both ways. I will bet things will be slow to start to ensure perfect (best possible) QC but as in line production I suspect they will exceed even their expectations. Time will tell.

#4746 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

Zach at flipnout has one and he is coming to the chicagoland area tomorrow.

Thanks KingPorn, your the best!!

#5187 1 year ago
Quoted from CKrueger:

Point taken about the name calling, but folks here made themselves a straw man out of inference and order numbers and are now bashing it when reality didn't meet their willfully-ignorant expectations.
It's foolish, and it serves no purpose than to start a flame war. All Spooky said was "we make 10/week", and "we ship 50/50 between distributors and direct order". Everything else is reading tea leaves.

Well said and it seems most didn’t figure in the noted priority to Spooky supports as I believe was noted a few times. A fang club member that bought All or several of their games earned a bit of priority seating on the list as they were there to support this companies achievements in getting here. 18 months was the only known date. The rest was conceived on Pinside lol.

#5350 1 year ago

Just a suggestion to Spooky to keep the line orderly..... They have made it clear from the start any buyer can have buyers remorse and there is no issue selling your spot. They Should however note that you are buying a Spot and any buyer sale transfer will form at the back of the line! All numbers stay the same just that last minute buyer steps to the back of the line. Pretty much an industry standard and would dispel the few trying to make a buck off the spooky orders. Just a thought.

#5358 1 year ago
Quoted from Palmer:

So are you saying that if someone buys a person's spot they go to the back of the line or that they SHOULD go back to the line? Your wording is confusing.

They are buying a Spot in line. Same game # only the delivery would be at the back of the line! Why should someone who has more money or failed to order buy their way to the front? And these $$$$$ price gouge spot sales would End.

#6244 1 year ago
Quoted from Mrawesome44:

Lets be real the only reason Joe offered people the chance to upgrade is because he gets a bigger kickback for every BS sold plain and simple. He isn't doing it out of the goodness of his heart. These games went on sale Monday the 16th and he says people can switch up to the 30th. So theoretically Standard owners got 2 weeks to decide if they wanted to switch. I don't think holding everyone up for people that knew way ahead of time the difference between the 2 and paid for a standard is right but hey the almighty dollar wins yet again. At this point i'm looking forward to the next post he writes saying there's another delay giving numbers out.
[quoted image]

I’m far from a fortune teller but based on your so friendly support of Joe I would Estimate your game number at 745-748. Could be a few off but with your kind distributor support I would bet I’m close. Lol

#6621 1 year ago
Quoted from Mrawesome44:

These spot numbers are about to start turning into anchors soon and the wait is going to be a lot longer than people are anticipating

You sure know a lot about... not sure exactly?

Quoted from tbutler6:

Poster frame up and ready! Two Spooky games (and a cat) going to watch over the OG Jurassic. On that whole why did the they do a “join the fang club” thing...
I think its fine. Its a PROMOTIONAL poster. Like the old army uncle sam stuff, advertising and other things. Laters.[quoted image]

Love that Cat topper! Got to get one of those!!

#8420 1 year ago
Quoted from PoMC:

That’s what I was hoping to see. I was actively looking on Amazon for a R&M poster or a cool portal wall “decal” when someone posted the pic of the poster. I would’ve gladly bought a fang club membership if the poster had R&M or more interesting Spooky pinball graphics referencing their pins.
I just found it slightly amusing the poster ended up being a promotional poster for the club I would’ve just paid to join. Didn’t think people would get bent over that silly observation. I have limited wall space, so a poster needs to get my attention, especially at $45 since that would’ve been the sole reason I joined.

Aren’t All posters generally Promotional pieces? Movie, concert, show, game, event.......... but people still generally collect or display them no?

#8542 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

I just sold one of my IJ's. Sadly its not enough...
Maybe sell the Houdini? IDK... I really love the game lol !

Wow a pair of IJ’s heavy hitter! Awesome game. Houdini for R&M easy decision in my book. Need to make some space myself but now you have me wanting an IJ lol.

#8830 1 year ago
Quoted from docquest:

Awesome!, so far we've heard of a Strobe dimension, a black and white dimension, and an underwater dimension. Am I missing any that were mentioned in podcast interviews or other threads?
Keep these teases coming. Helps to keep the thread from devolving too much.

Just shows how code can take a good game to great. So can’t wait to see the black/white mode that sounds incredible. I do Hope that mode will include the display going to B/W also that would be crazy creative. Don’t think they could have selected a better team/company to create this amazing title.

#8854 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

this is true. we just got "high speed" internet at the office. We currently have two 10Mbps download lines for a total of 20Mbps. this is up from the "up to" 1.5Mbps dsl that we had up until now, and realistically (while running speed tests online), we were a lot closer to 0.75Mbps download before. You could not watch a youtube video, send (or receive) a large email or update a computer. My audible books would time out or say things like 310 days to go.
It is amazing what being 4 miles "out in the country" will do for your internet speed. I can say this though, i can see ALL the stars on clear nights at the office where i can see "a bunch" of them in the city.
My house as gigabit up and down so i am okay there.
It's all in what you want out of life.

Hard to believe those Cat in the Hat books you read would be so hard to download Christopher?

#8956 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinball-Obsessed:

Cool thanks!
When i got my DP premium I got a cheapy paper manual (but hey at least it came with one!).
They do also give you plastics to hang with the key. Also I did get all the plastics that were supposed to be on the pro.... which I thought was nice. I think?

Ok you got me curious... Stern included an as you put it "Cheapy paper manual"? Were you expecting tablets of stone or something more special then a manual? lol Many games now only offer a digital download manual. A Cheapy paper manual is actually a plus these days.

#9213 12 months ago
Quoted from NintenBear:

I’m not going to lie guys, I’m jealous I didn’t jump in on this. For me it was because I never watched the show. But i caught a show and damn is it good. I think Spooky really nailed this theme. I can’t wait to see them continue to evolve. Do they allow visitors? I’d love to take a tour of the factory if that’s allowed.

No worries, I would bet there will be many flipping in short order by some and worst case there will be several owners in our local area for you to enjoy the game as you like. Hoping to see mine not to long from now and our home arcade is always open to friends.

#9215 12 months ago
Quoted from NintenBear:

If your open to making a new friend, I’d love to come over and seeing it being played.

When we get it absolutely. Granted you wouldn’t See it being played you would just play it! Watching me suck at pinball isn’t much fun trust me. I’ve amassed a decent collection sadly I’m only great at playing a few. Lol

#9295 12 months ago
Quoted from Cheeks:

I'd say you guys could come over and play mine, but it sounds like I won't nearly have the first one in the area. I'm guessing I won't see mine until Aug/Sept.

Heck yeah love to see that awesome collection! Options are good. First in the area visit for this game would be awesome.

#9336 12 months ago
Quoted from delt31:

Def more to this thread than just a stream. No need to dump anything.
As for watching the stream, I feel the same way. Would love to avoid seeing any of it but I just can’t. I already know I’m watching but hopefully not get saturated with it.

Sadly you won’t have much choice. If they so much as stream the coin door there will be 500 posts screaming they did it wrong and 500 that love the hinge direction. Lol. I think as soon as they get final approval the videos will fly and we can then commence loving or tearing it apart. Already have a spot in the game room cleared for this beautiful addition.

Exciting times. Thanks to Mr Awesome Kingpingames I got my add-on list in for production. Things are moving and hope to see the Spooky thing of beauty in no time. Luckily my wife was all in on this one so I don't have to figure out a sneak in strategy this time!

#10516 11 months ago
Quoted from RazerX:

#18 going to Brixies, so there will be at least one gong on location in the Chicago area.

I see one game in particular in your killer collection I would like to see in my Basement collection!!!!! lol

#10609 11 months ago
Quoted from Pinstein:

Game of the year!

Don’t you think playing it one time might be in order? Lol. Company, team, and theme of the year has my vote at the point.

#10610 11 months ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

no magic; they are simply better.
Hard work, dedication to get it right, and willingness to own it and improve seem to be key.
Sorry Rock, but Spooky PFs are the industry standard and continue to get even better.

Have to agree. Doing it or doing it Right is where the Magic happens.

#10620 11 months ago
Quoted from wesman:

An idea for future games regarding licensing and voice work.
At launch, along with game options, could a game akin to Rick and Morty, be presented with a kickstarterish option for extra voice talent for SAG fees and contract costs?
If 100 people alone, picked a $200 option, that could maybe allow an extra actor or two for either existing voice work or new dialog entirely.
$20,000 isn't much, but maybe on a smaller project like this, it could suffice?

Huh? If it was that simple to get an actor wouldn’t it be easier to simply increase the base price $26 and have the same outcome? I am more then happy with what they offered personally.

#10733 11 months ago
Quoted from Cheeks:

I love Spooky, and this will be my 3rd Spooky game, but I don't ever want to be at the front of the line again. I'm too busy to be someone's play-tester, and that's halfway how I felt with TNA. I want a new game to work. I don't want to dick around with excessive tweaking (beyond the adjusting all new games require), or the need to install replacement parts. I still have some residual (minor) issues that I wouldn't have had later in the run. That said, I did avoid the run of people that had the playfield problems, and they came after me, so I guess I shouldn't complain. I'm in the low 300s on R&M and that feels about where I'd want to be from my perspective.

Thats a fair concern though I would bet as Spooky has proven they Learn from past experiences from start up to now company I would bet they have fine tuned the process pretty well by now. No company will be 100% and waiting is a fair strategy but my guess is the now seasoned Spooky is a bit more prepared to avoid past obstacles.

Quoted from bangerjay:

It’s not really mine

What a tease. So basically it’s just a picture of you creeping in her space. Lol

#10800 11 months ago
Quoted from Pinball-Obsessed:

I have over a year until I get mine but I’m watching those streams any and all that come out because it gets me even more excited about the game!
And besides that I’m probably going to play it on location as soon as possible… And I’m planning to take a trip to spooky factory soon so I’ll probably play it there to!
Will call the trip to spooky a practice run for when I really have to go pick up my new Rick and Morty pin!

Based on your 205 of 270 posts in the Spooky thread I am going to guess your excited lol. Watch them now its going to be a Long time to keep the wow a secret. Plus you can still come by and play hopefully in a few weeks as these awesome toys start to hit the streets.

#11969 8 months ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

I'm not sure, maybe they were waiting for the materials to do the butter cabinets? I'm just repeating what I was told. I called KT to ask if choosing butter cabinet would delay my pin as that was what people were saying on the forums, and she said no they just received a shipment and there were only a couple people ahead of me that had chosen them and had been delayed - but choosing butter cabinet would not delay mine since they had it on hand.
I wouldn't read much more into it than that I suppose.

As he (forgot who sorry) posted waiting on game #34 butter cabinet and they are now in the late 50’s now I suspect the answer would be yes by the order numbers. They will be back up to speed as soon as Charlie feels it’s safe for his family and team to fire up the line. R&M’s for everyone!
