YES YES YES!! Can't wait to see what they have in store.

#504 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

I would’ve never thought in 1 million years that Scott Danesi and Brian Eddy would be going head to head for pinball dollars.
Another killer year for pinball in 2020.
JPoP’s Retro Atomic Zombie game did not wow me. It’s going to be some fierce competition in the next year.
Spooky has got a hot title here, only other Cartoon Network/Adult Swim I would go after would be Metalocalypse.
Nice to see a refreshing cartoon title, much needed. Nice subtle slam on Stern in the YouTube vid about not another rock n roll or superhero pin

I wouldn't have minded a ATHF pin at some point, but yea Metalocalypse would be cool too.

#524 1 year ago

Finally a new pinball game I am actually really interested in, and if it is good like I hope it is, I most likely won't be able to get one. Oh the irony.

#529 1 year ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Adult Swim & Hulu.
Select episodes are free here if you don’t have a TV Provider or Hulu:

If you have a Roku, you can install the Adult Swim channel and they run the whole series there constantly.

#541 1 year ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

This might be weird, but I actually think I prefer it with the bleeping. It was the same thing with South Park. I watched it on TV and though it was funny, but then watched the DVDs and though they were less funny with all the swearing. I'm not quite sure why that was.

This is actually very common for many 'vulgar' comedy shows. You get used to everything being bleeped and mentally that actually makes it funnier. When you hear it without the bleeps it generally doesn't seem as funny. Just some mind trick thing.

#562 1 year ago

For those that don't understand the force that is Rick And Morty.

1. They single handedly brought back McDonalds szechuan sauce (like it or not it caused quite a commotion)
2. They travel the country in a truck full of toys/items from the show and sell out within minutes.
3. The show is a huge success world wide, not just the US.
4. It's gotten so pop culture popular that now people are hate on it and its fans because it is everywhere (thus the 'living under a rock comments)
5. It's Pickle Rick!

#566 1 year ago
Quoted from ThatOneDude:

LOL, maybe that's the logic that Stern uses to pick themes. Find something that was popular when the majority of the pinball community was shitting in their diapers and wait to release it when then pinball community is shitting in their depends.

I mean really, what they do makes sense to a degree. They know who has the money, and what those people most like. It's also partly notstalgia on their part I imagine - something that gets their own ideas for a pin flowing, and partly licensing costs I assume play an even bigger role in what actually gets made.

(yes, that is horrible grammar)

#607 1 year ago

What's next...millennials and boomers playing pinball together?? Mass hysteria!

#627 1 year ago
Quoted from fumbleflippers:

So what happens when 1000+ folks join the fang club expecting a spot?

They just made $45k and a lot of sad folks.

#643 1 year ago
Quoted from o-din:

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.

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

#692 1 year ago
Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

And your theory is that these fans will be buying this pin. I’d love to test this out by having them load 10 R&M machines into the truck they send out every day for three months. 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 (excluding any who already collect pins or want to collect).

Not at all, frankly, as someone else pointed out, I don't think that anyone who doesn't own a pin is going to go out and buy one of these (maybe a few will), but those who play in barcades, etc, I imagine this will be a very popular pin - even if it is only mediocre gameplay. I think many here forget that the majority of people that play pinball don't buy pinballs...even one...let alone more than one.

EDIT...then again see: Supreme and Primus...so who knows...

#696 1 year ago

Once the 700 are sold out, they can give it to CGC to remake

#701 1 year ago
Quoted from ausretrogamer:

Where did the other 50 go?

Probably one of the other Ricks took them.

#713 1 year ago
Quoted from Blitzburgh99:

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

Because we rule from the shadows, but our pimp hands are strong.

#731 1 year ago

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

#777 1 year ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

OK, I figured out how to get RAM at a house I can access less than 5 miles away. Game on bitches. This better be dope. Do i gotta join this fang club or can some one get us in early from a previous purchase?

We may have to timeshare it.

#850 1 year ago
Quoted from fisherdaman:

A "select your Rick",Similar to star wars, would be a cool feature to open the game. I'd go with cool rick all the time[quoted image]

I was thinking that you could pick Rick or Morty as your 'player' and those are the callouts you get during your game (rules are the same) -- or a step further, each player is assigned a specific player with those voice callouts (probably too much work to code) but..yea..

#912 1 year ago

Hope it's not a reskinned seawitch.

#917 1 year ago
Quoted from nogoodnames222:

I'm in the same boat, and have the same question about pre-orders.

Tilt would be silly to not get one. Hopefully they prove to be reliable for operators.

Love Tilt! I'll be visiting again in January.

#924 1 year ago
Quoted from donkadelic:

Great play by Spooky, this will sell out no problem.
For me personally, was really looking forward to this since I love Danesi. But I hate the theme. I hate Rick & Morty I think it's pseudo-intellectual nonsense with characters ranging from boring to annoying.
If this were Venture Brothers, Sealab, Aqua Teen, Metalocalypse, etc, I would be over the moon ecstatic. But Rick & Morty...location play only. But again, just me personally, I know others love it and it will sell.

I like all those and would take a pin from any of them.

#1016 1 year ago

For anyone watching R&M on Hulu, check out Futureman. Great hilarious Sci-fi show. Would also make a good pinball theme

#1031 1 year ago
Quoted from o-din:

There is an episode on cartoon network at 11:30 I won't be missing.

If you have a Roku, (or maybe even Android or Firestick) there is an adult swim channel you can install that doesn't require any subscriptions. They 'marathon' it 24/7. I think it is just the first 2 seasons right now and since it is live streamed you'll get dropped into wherever it is at...but that is one way if you plan to do it legally.

#1033 1 year ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

Evidence of the themes popularity is the plethora of pinsiders now updating their avatar to RaM!
Seems we have to go back to Alien to find group behaviour anything close to this, for a theme....

Let's hope this turns out better than that. I am still extremely disappointed in that...as that IS my dream theme.

#1144 1 year ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

That is the way I was understanding it, however if the numbers don't add up and there wind up being more paid members than games, there will be some pretty pissed off punters. That's all.
The limiting to 750 (ie. LIMITED EDITION) sounds like it has a good chance of causing some headaches for this particular title.
As I figure the only way to know seems to be wait and see. A little concerning though.
No wonder people are confused, the BS edition is meant to be the Limited Edition, right?? ... yet now there are suddenly Two Limited Editions. Makes no sense.
eg. Say 2 weeks after release there are 800 orders. In the first 750 orders 400 are BS editions, and 350 are regular Limited Editions, and then the last 50 (chronological FC orders #751-#800, within the cutoff time for ordering BS editions) include BS edition orders, does that over-ride and push out regular order numbers before #750?
Just looks like it has the potential to become a bit of a mess unless something gives. ... ?

You are overthinking it.

There are 750 games. That's it...it's not a 'limited edition'.

The BS is an upgrade option for cosmetics, similar to JJP's LE/CE

They may limit how many of those they actually allow, but I'm not sure they've said yet.

I do wonder if demand will be higher than 750 though and if there are over 750 Fang members how that will be handled. I imagine not every existing member will want one, and I imagine not everyone hyped and joining now is going to want one after the reveal, then additionally if they have to wait 18 months to get one, they'll sell their spot etc. (you know how the hype train goes).

#1180 1 year ago

Is it out yet?

#1275 1 year ago
Quoted from underlord:

Very influential 100 people.
Who like sauce. Yes.

I posted this elsewhere in this thread, but R&M is worldwide popular. It's not just a small niche market. It 'might' be a smaller market than Stranger Things because yes it is a cartoon and it is on Adult Swim, but it is indeed very popular across many demo's and countries.

#1313 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

I’m really pissed by how long it’s taking for the promised Rick and Mort code update.
Don’t release a game if the code isn’t ready!!

I know you're being sarcastic, but I actually 100% agree with this for a home purchase.

#1319 1 year ago

People will always find something to bitch about...

#1367 1 year ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

Why shouldn't everybody pay the same?
Nobody is better than anyone else.

Tell that to the tax man.

#1457 1 year ago
Quoted from Luckydogg420:

Price doesn’t matter. Have you seen the videos about Szechuan sauce! Rich and morty fans are retarded. Spooky would only need to run 1 commercial during 1 episode and these games would sell out.
Think Supreme fans here. More money then brains. Willing to do stupid shit to get the game (like take a loan they can’t afford).
These will sell out, price doesn’t matter if you really want one.

You know...you aren't entirely wrong...but let's face it...can anyone paying 5k-13k for a pinball machine in their house exactly be sane?

#1471 1 year ago
Quoted from ViriiGuy:

LOL! Why are you even on Pinside then? Hell... I have probably $50k in pins at home.


#1518 1 year ago

Is the order date the same as the reveal? Has that date been officially announced? (assuming no as I can't find any).

#1542 1 year ago

I've only mentioned ATHF like 3 times in this thread. It'd make a great pin too, but since it's no longer being made

I completely forgot about that episode...

#1545 1 year ago

Don't let anyone kid you. Pinball machines will continue to go up in price and value for infinity. $100k by christmas. There is no bottom. I'm building my 3rd level basement now.

#1574 1 year ago

It's tied to Adult swim..why do I think there's going to be an infomercial where this goes up for sale for 10 minutes at some random time, like 3am?

#1602 1 year ago

I'm torn on that...I kind of like the random beeps you hear where they censor some words and not others..

#1607 1 year ago

There is no place in line....you order when you order...

all the club is is a fan club, completely separate from the machine sale. The club allows you to order earlier than non club members..that is it.

#1626 1 year ago
Quoted from The_Casual:

I'm wondering if you guys signing up for the Fang Club read the fine print on the membership: http://shop.spookypinball.com/USA-Spooky-Pinball-Fang-Club-Membership-INCLUDES-SHIPPING_p_13.html
"To get in on this year's goodies, you MUST be signed up by January 7th."
I'm not a lawyer, but it seems you had to be a member by January 7th, 2019 to be part of the Fang Club pre-sales if it's considered a 'goodie'. Since it's a membership benefit, I believe it's classified as such.

it's referring to the goody bags, next year (which is what new signers get) will get next years bags (assuming that they are different)....why is everyone making this such a bigger deal than it is...

#1629 1 year ago
Quoted from The_Casual:

Well, it's an interesting business challenge from Spooky's perspective. Do they ostracize the current Fang Club members who were supporting the company before this announcement or do they disappoint their new 1,000+ prospective customers?
If they keep this membership as a "paywall" of sorts, the 750 games will only be sold to the Fang Club members. Many of which joined solely to access the pre-sale.
It's tough, but it's a decision that Spooky is going to have to make.

Has nothing to do with the ordering. The fan club exists regardless of the pinball machine. A 'benefit' of being a member of the fan club is you can order the game before it goes on sale for everyone else. If you are a member it is still first come first serve on the ordering...the only difference is that the people who are members get a 2 week head start chance to order....it's really no different than VIP's who get first chance at ticket sales.

I really don't see how hard this is to understand for people. Have you used the internet??

#1665 1 year ago

Seriously people? LMAO. Your order # has NOTHING TO DO WITH IT. BTW I bought 500 memberships. Someone mentioned there were around 250 members a few days ago.

#1669 1 year ago

I just saw on twitter that if you order in the next 10 minutes it's BOPGOPF.

#1673 1 year ago

I predict that when it does go for sale, spooky's website is going to grind to a halt.

#1720 1 year ago
Quoted from MikeHogue:

I’m a Fang Club member *and* a Spooky purchaser of......
Rob Zombie
So you all can get in line behind me!

Looks at your pin list...*colbert* You already have your fair share.

#1943 1 year ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Everyone keeps going on about how important theme is... which is true.
But team is just as important surely?
Scott Danesi design..
Eric Priepke lead programmer.
Bowen - code and rules.
David van Es -animations.
And Spooky building it.
With this team at the helm, it is hard to imagine the game not being good.
Custom call outs are an immense addition as well.
This is why I am interested.
And we need laughs in life

Eh, to the average pinballer none of that is even known. I barely know most of those names or can tie them to any specific games. There are only a few long time people I know about based on games that are already my favorites for decades. I would imagine MOST people fall similarly, even a large percentage here.

#1950 1 year ago

Okay, I've used my 2D Picture to 3D picture conversion plugin on photoshop to see the other side of the playfield and OMG!


#2013 1 year ago

Wonder if where you have 'display' they are mirror displays for 'realities' like Dialed In has? At least the one in the center anyway... I suppose they could be counter displays as well...

#2076 1 year ago

This machine won't be complete unless it has Morty Ball Drop mode where the balls just fall out of the cabinet.

#2157 1 year ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:

Don't be so sure. We haven't seen the game yet, and pin flipping hasn't been profitable lately due to saturation. Plus ppl have to wait for the games to be built while other companies are putting out titles that will likely be great. Also, there is buying fatigue right now due many due to so many nib purchases. It's a buyer's market right now IMHO.

You would think..and yet prices continue upward...

#2195 1 year ago

Is it strange I would prefer Rick and Morty NOT be toys on the PF? Since, one would assume you are playing as them? Seems like a bash toy should be something else from the series.

#2239 1 year ago

Anyone working on the R&M powerbladez??

#2368 1 year ago
Quoted from benheck:

I predict day one sellout for R&M

I do too actually, and then 3-4 months later a slew of selling of spots because tired of waiting.

#2400 1 year ago

I'm fine with whatever wait as long as it is only a down payment rather than full payment. However, even saying that it is pending the game itself.

#2450 1 year ago

They haven't really said how they are going to announce when orders go live yet....I really hope it isn't via an email an hour before....

Additionally, I'm not interested in 'flipping' so I don't plan to order one if I haven't seen pics/gameplay. I only buy games I'm interested in keeping.

#2505 1 year ago
Quoted from FalconPunch:

Pro tip
If you haven't signed up to Fang club and have a high chance of possibly wanting this machine.
Like, now, not tomorrow, now
It pains me to say it, but you will thank me later when people are scrambling to join and wait for confirmation....and orders have already opened.

Don't listen to this man, he be cray cray. He's from the underside of the world. They think upside down down there.

#2513 1 year ago


#2584 1 year ago

Any pictures of the non BS edition for comparison?

#2596 1 year ago

I actually like the standard better, artwork is the same, just the powder seems to be different (is there something else I"m missing?)

#2603 1 year ago

Well the purple does indeed go with the artwork of the show so it isn't out of place. I think it looks great too, I just like the marbled grey better overall.

#2717 1 year ago
Quoted from Jodannar:

The artwork styling and ramps are reminding me a lot of Data East Time Machine

That's exactly what I thought too!

#2761 1 year ago

Yea...I do feel this is yet another 'you should just buy it because' moments using FOMO to push it rather than its actual merits. I like the theme and look, but who knows about gameplay at this point. It isn't exactly cheap, it's up there with all the other company prices.

#2764 1 year ago

Oh and selling my spot in line for $12k, 1 day is too long to wait.

#2769 1 year ago
Quoted from PinBalt:

I hope there will be voices in the other that Rick and Morty. Call outs are great but hope we will hear Gerry, Summer, Scary Terry, etc from episodes and that there are no voice limitations

Since they haven't really stated anything other than Justin, my guess other things will be show video based clips, rather than custom.

#2793 1 year ago
Quoted from wesman:

Can we move ourselves backwards in line, if we'd like to? Anyone have any idea on that?

I'm sure once the orders are in there are people who would trade positions with you.

#3169 1 year ago

Order placed: Your invoice #AB-2018 BSE

#3247 1 year ago
Quoted from guitarded:

So...Phrasing is just not a thing here?

Wrong show!

#3365 1 year ago

I do feel like they should have done a 20 second spot during the show advertising this...imagine the chaos.

#3376 1 year ago
Quoted from seenev:

When do bitter R&M fans start complaining about it being sold out? Remember the whole schezwan sauce debacle?

Well, I mean, if they want to buy my spot for $20k I might consider it >

#3381 1 year ago
Quoted from Oaken:

100% sold in 1-1.5 hrs...I think their marketing strategy was just fine as is.

Did we get confirmation of everything sold out everywhere? Or just the website allotment. I thought there was a distro no one wanted to deal with anymore. Surely we don't have hypocrites that would go against that just to get a pinball machine? *cough*

#3413 1 year ago

He's busy keeping the website hamsters running

#3445 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Unbelievable hype for this one considering no one has played one or seen a stream. Usually once a steam happens is when buyers remorse sets in and people drop out or sell out... happens every release. Was smart not to show a gameplay video especially with non refundable deposit.

Few games, regardless of videos or hands on don't receive criticism or buyers remorse...just part of the pinball process

#3673 1 year ago

So never had a spooky before. How's the playfield protection, like for magna save, or the spot where the ball is dropped onto the playfield from the plunge and left ramp? Extra mylar etc? I've been spoiled by CGC.

#3907 1 year ago
Quoted from o-din:

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!

#3911 1 year ago
Quoted from TigerLaw:

Has Spooky ever done a factory topper? That would be awesome on this game, a great way for them to make some extra money on the theme too!

I kind of want the flying cthulu creature flapping its wings as a topper...or a dancing pickle rick that randomly yells "I'm PICKLE RIIICK!"

#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.

#4059 1 year ago
Quoted from razorsedge:

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 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...

#4065 1 year ago
Quoted from heyitsjoebob:

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.

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

#4081 1 year ago
Quoted from northerndude:

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.

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.

#4131 1 year ago
Quoted from drfrightner:

Is it way to early to start suggesting to Spooky a next title? Now that it has been totally proven that a company can come out and announce there is a LIMITED number to be produced and succeed. How about some other titles that should be limited to 1000 or less.
Friday the 13th
Bill and Ted Excellent Adventure
Evil Dead

God no my wallet...

#4317 1 year ago

In case missed the boat and anyone wants one...it would seem they are NOT sold out everywhere.

#4319 1 year ago
Quoted from epthegeek:

Daydreaming too much about how you think it should be is just setting yourself up for disappointment if it doesn't exactly match what you're thinking.
I can tell you that there is a messeeks box - it's the target on the right side below the upper flipper. We're currently using the meeseeks as a value multiplier (aka, they help you get more points). When you spawn one, it appears on a shot and that shot is worth more. How much more depends on how many meeseeks are 'live'. Then if they stay alive for too long, they 'go bad' and change color, and now that shot is worth LESS, not more, because they're salty and just wanna die.
That's just where it's at right now. Everything subject to change of course, and there are some plans on paper for more to do with the meeseeks that haven't been implemented yet.

Is that what the counter at the bottom is? To count live meseeks?

#4341 1 year ago
Quoted from JustEverett:

I've been thinking a Mr. Meeseeks MB would be awesome. When Meeseeks gets ahold of the box and starts creating more Mr. Meeseeks is hilarious.[quoted image]

Actually..not going to happen, but it would have been funny if every time you hit the box during that mode you get another ball so you end up with say 10 balls on the pf.

#4381 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballinreno:

IF spooky doesn't send that to everyone (or the pickle rick one) as a keychain they fail!

#4444 1 year ago
Quoted from Morinack:

I know I've been out of the pin scene for a while. 15 to 20 years ago we spent all our time sharing on rec.games.pinball. The past 6 months I reacquired the bug and began rebuilding a collection.
I find it funny that some folks here think 750 is a high number of machines to produce. We would give a left arm to find a production number that low.
Maybe if this was a general release or Pro/Premium/LE release stream and the LE were 750 that might be high. 750 for a total run is still low.
Think about it. How often do you think you'll see one of these machines on a route. Most will never see anything more than the basement/garage they move into.
I am soooo stoked to have stumbled on this release for my first NIB pinball machine. Can't wait to play with features never before released, like the DDL.
Thanks Spooky, looking forward to playing this game!

Honestly, even though I wasn't completely blown away by the reveal, this is why I bought one. I live in the middle of nowhere. I most likely would never even get to flip one otherwise.

#4448 1 year ago

So RM2 reveal from Spooky next week?

#4456 1 year ago

I already posted my ideas for toppers. Someone get on it!

Quoted from cmack750:

Toppers are a perfect example of Spooky's SOP. They are much more interested in building something fun than using opportunity to just turn it into a cash grab.
The just recently released the interactive brain topper for ACNC that color syncs with play and can actually follow shots in some cases. Hand built and 300 bucks. Find me anyone else doing that. Total respect.

Hah, hadn't seen that, nice.

#4508 1 year ago

I do agree that no green moving portal of some sort on the playfield is a big miss IMO. I like the idea of a hologram/projected one......I wonder if a mod could be made like the mirror idea above but over the center shot that projects a portal over it in some manner. Isn't that the one that starts an adventure?

I'd say the garage possibly too, but the center shot makes more sense.

Yea, they can correct me if I'm wrong, but it sounded like they hinted a few times that:

1. The art we've seen isn't final
2. The code is a long ways from done (which actually hopefully means they are open to some ideas that have been thrown around in this thread)
3. They are moving me to spot #1.

Quoted from Pan94:

I can’t wait for when I lose a ball and the machine says way to go fucking Jerry you can’t do anything right!

OMG I hadn't really thought about that before, but that would be pretty funny to be playing as Jerry and Rick just bashes you the entire time. In fact? I think that would be the BEST way to do this game.

#4673 1 year ago

Well watching the video, when the ball comes out there it sure seems like there is a magnet there that slowed the ball to almost a stop....but can't speak to what that is specifically.

#4710 1 year ago

I think I will be toward the end of 2020. I'm patient... I waited 6 -7 months for MBr. I won't start to get anxious until I see a bunch of people enjoying theirs first

#4741 1 year ago

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. A quality product with a fleshed out code is way more important than getting immediate satisfaction of a rushed product.

#4748 1 year ago
Quoted from Yelobird:

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.

Orrrr....you think realistically so that 6 months down the road people aren't whining about they shoudl have had their game by now. Just saying. Patience. Manufacturing is full of speed bumps.

#4763 1 year ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

So... you have the ball cradled on the right flipper and want to shoot the right orbit (which you can't hit from that flipper). How do you get the ball to the left flipper? Would a post pass work on this machine?[quoted image]

Pick the right of the machine up and gently tilt it left.

#4794 1 year ago

Right it's like 100 games, 50 direct, then anther 100 games, and then more direct. When you are getting a game 5 months later than what you had expected, people have a right to be upset.

You had no expectation. That's on you, no one EVER said that the order numbers said when you would get them. They actually said in the thread it didn't.

#4882 1 year ago
Quoted from davisjl1979:

I’m a little disappointed. I went direct because I thought it was my best chance at getting an early build without having to be on a distributors good side.
A little more clarification in this process would be appreciated. Lot of confusion leading up to the sale.
No worries. Let the line work the kinks out and I’ll get mine after things are running smooth.

I do agree that the order process and how it was handled left a lot to be desired....that also goes for the reveal. If this game sucks, there's going to be a lot of upset people but I'm sure it will be worth it.

Sorry to keep spamming this but I'm not crazy right? Theres no way there were "60 orders for multiples" in the first 150? There is zero evidence to support more than maybe a couple right?

It's extremely possible because of all the click spamming on the stuck website. But they did say each person could only order up to 2.

To sum up, 15 years ago when I started to collect pinball machines, I never thought I'd see the day where I'd spend $8000 on a pin, I never thought I see brand new AFM, MM, MB being made or games like Woz and SW and TNA and RM etc.. but here we are and now people are complaining they might have to wait? I mean some people just want to complain about something.


#5102 1 year ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

I guess just the last point - the email direct buyers received said this:
""All customers have an even chance of an early number this way no matter how they buy. The remaining spots purchased from our website are layered in starting at #1 so yes you have a real chance of acquiring early places in line when you order direct!""
The earliest direct number we see is #121. The above seems to contradict what actually happened, no?

Well, this is true. I do remember seeing this, and yes, what was stated after the fact does seem to contradict it. (unless they are numbering them differently for 'purchasers' vs. CN and friends).

#5866 1 year ago

It would be kind of cool that if there was some logic in there that let you release balls using the kinetic hitting. Say you have 2 balls stacked on the left side, you hit the left side which forces a ball to the right side and it opens the gate and lets it out. Vice versa...something of that nature.

#5871 1 year ago

The thing about the portal shot is it's basically like shooting a left orbit (I think they said you can do it from the right orbit as well). The problem here is...that doesn't seem to lend itself to a satisfying shot...at least in any game I've ever played. Now, I assume since it goes from there to your left flipper every time, there will be a bunch (hopefully) of different combo skill shots set up from left flipper to be made related to whatever mode it goes into.

Generally satisfying shots usually are on difficult ramps or something that is impacted by the shot (dropdowns, bash toys etc). I think what will be important is the outcome of how the 'adventure' ends. Do you play only 1 adventure at a time? Do multiple adventures play out at the same time? I'm not sure I see any potential 'satisfying' shots here, but much of that will come down to rulesets. EDIT: I guess the whole left orbit to upper right flipper (which I keep forgetting about) and up the ramp, etc will be those shots.

#5881 1 year ago
Quoted from donkadelic:

You do realize that Pinball machines wouldn't exist at all without raw American Capitalism right?

I get what you are saying, due to that lock mech it does make the pf seem kind of meager compared to other games with lots of toys and a big bash toy in the middle of the pf. I guess it's important to realize though that the lock mech appears to be very versatile. This game appears to be in the same design scheme as TNA. I would assume if you don't like TNA, you may not like this game.

#5985 1 year ago
Quoted from Chitownpinball:

No. This game has ramps. Not even the same at all. It also has a looping shot, etc. This game is not TNA like at all outside of scott mother fucking danesi is the designer.

If you only account for whats on the market here, no, because if you look at the archive, nothing in the 5k range has sold. Only a couple at 2500. It's wishful thinking by the people putting them up.

Gotta call this out. Hopefully there’s no more of this here.

I’m assuming you are being sarcastic, but even then, this goes way over a clear line. Describing penetrating a minor with a foreign object (with or without the “assistance” of another adult) is not a joke. Ever. Thank God, I don’t have any personal experience in this realm, but I do get neighborhood watch alerts that let me know where and when registered sex offenders move within the town I live in. This kind of crap makes my blood boil / makes me want to puke. This is a is a terrible reality that ruins lives and is more widespread than some people realize. It should never be normalized with jokes.
Putting something up your own ass? Whatever. Putting something up someone else’s ass? They better be a sober, consenting adult.

You sir, are the problem with the world today. In case you haven't watched the show, there's quite a bit of...not quite so PC humor. Judging by what you've written here though, you just live in constant fear. I'm sorry for whatever happened in your life that gave you such a negative outlook.

Thanks. I’ve seen it. BIG DIFFERENCE - Morty shoves the seeds up his ass himself. Those don’t get the difference are the problem. There’s an enormous difference between being edgy and what this “bash toy” concept described.

#6164 1 year ago
Quoted from drfrightner:

I have to say it... Spooky vs Stern. New game vs new game. Who wins Rick and Morty or Stranger Things.
First off we all have to admit Stranger Things is a much bigger license so Stern wins there. But if you're a fan of Stranger Things did Stern deliver the game you were hoping for? Did Spooky? After playing Stranger Things and just based on the videos for Rick and Morty... I think Spooky SLAYED the dragon.
I think if you're a fan of Rick and Morty you're ecstatic about the pinball game. Spooky knocked a home run and made the Rick and Morty fans overjoyed. If you're a fan of Stranger Things, you're now probably wishing Spooky had the license because Stern laid an egg. Stern likes to do this a lot... rain on someone's parade by releasing new code when another manufacturer releases their new game, or in this case a new game over the top of another new game.
They usually win... but Spooky did such a great job Stern loses big league. Congrats to Spooky you went head to head and won you're now a giant killer.

I don't understand this mentality. To be fair, it's too early to say regarding R&M as we've seen very little. I really don't see it as a vs situation either. Of the two, even though I like both properties, I think R&M makes for a potentially funner pin experience. The two licenses aren't mutually exclusive, there is overlap. Additionally, no matter how bad you might think Stranger Things pin is, they'll sell far more than 750, and they haven't even shown the whole package for the high end models. It's just a bigger company in general. Maybe I'm in the minority but I keep my expectations tempered.
