Looks like mid January by planetary website, I can’t get past the captcha

#602 10 months ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

Has anyone ordered a XL large screen DMD kit for their MMr?
Do we have a date on when the screen will become available?

They’re not available to order yet. According to the PPS email I got, they wanted confirmation that I’m interested in ordering & that it’s going to be a one time offering. Not sure why that’s be the case with the screen panel, as that’s a common part amongst all their games....makes sense for the RGB & topper tho

Kits and upgrades in January is what they said on the FNO stream on Monday.

#604 10 months ago

The email was mean to say that it is best to get your interest in early at which time we will order specific quantities to cover our needs. All of these parts are split between MMR games as well as the Upgrade Kits. We do take an 'order' as a Sales Order - we don't request payment via Invoice until the parts are ready to ship. I would expect that the parts will be available on and off, but 'off' could be large periods of time ... so sorry if that was confusing ...

Thanks!

Looks like we will be waiting for a while in Australia.

#606 10 months ago

Will the upgrades be sold via a European distributor as well?

#607 10 months ago

I contacted a seller for upgrades and was quoted a price other than the one shown on the release provided by CGC. I assume that prices will be set by the seller and may reflect other costs involved. I certainly do not care to pay for these upgrades before they are available but I am very interested.

I think the prices are fixed so u shouldn't see much variance across distributors (if any)...if so just order through Planetary

Quoted from fosaisu:

I'd guess that very few people of any socio-economic status care much about anyone else being priced out of the market for a luxury good like pinball.

Clearly at least one of us does, but sure... go ahead and tell me my opinion doesn't matter, like hundreds, if not thousands at this point, of people have done to me. IDGAF. You people can keep paying 10k and more for pinball machines. I can't, and wouldn't even if I could.

I know a lot of people " not myself " that would buy every NIB that Stern made just to test drive the game....... Everyone of them does not do that any more. They pick and choose now with this crazy pricing.

#611 10 months ago

I still haven't received an answer from PPS or CGC (PPS in email told me they would have to ask CGC): does the GI upgrade for $249 also include the backbox RGB upgrade which is listed for the Royal edition??

I think there are several unanswered questions that most likely won't come out until their almost ready to ship. Like how much time is it going to take to convert to the RGB lighting? Does the topper lighting integrate with the game if u don't upgrade to the RGB lighting?

I wasn't saying your opinion doesn't matter, just that most people, rich or poor, aren't going to think about how their purchasing behavior effects pricing for other people. And doubly so when it comes to luxury goods. For what it's worth, I'm not buying any $10k pinball machines either, nor are most other people on Pinside.

#614 10 months ago

In on a Royal. Had to upgrade from the special after seeing and playing this one.

That's a good question. I wonder if it also includes the chaser lights on the long catapult plastic as well.

#616 10 months ago
Quoted from Frax:

I can't, and wouldn't even if I could.

Can definitely understand and respect that statement. There's not a bottle of wine I'd ever pay $500.00 for, let alone the thousands some go for. Could I? Technically, yes. Would I? Never.

I do think the term "rich" can be relative, however, and doesn't define a person. I've never put the value on $$$ that some do..just a tool to use in day to day. What I record as income could be considered rich to some, a joke/ insignificant to others. Grateful to be able to buy toys I want on occasion, but my definition of "rich" comes from things not associated with money. Fortunately, it's not my job to judge anyone based on anything, actually.....

Your opinion matters.

But not to me.

This looks really cool.
I'm new to the hobby, what is a good way to buy this machine? I live in Seattle, WA, USA.

You have 2 options. You can try to find one on the secondhand market, or you can find a distributor that has one available. Distributors are listed at https://www.chicago-gaming.com/distributors/26

Any word on when these are starting?

#623 8 months ago
Quoted from bemmett:

I'd like to know this also. I'm guessing they are not going to start selling the kits till the machines start shipping.

#624 8 months ago

Also wondering about this. Were they supposed to start to ship by the end of january?

#625 8 months ago

Latest from my distro is mid-feb shipping for RE. The classic and special editions are supposed to ship before that. Upgrade parts should follow soon after I would guess.

#626 8 months ago

does anyone have a pic of the black diamond up close? Does anyone know if there are small or large flakes in it? thank you

#627 8 months ago

I would love to see a close up of the black diamond too

We are waiting patiently.

I was told by our Wayne, our's were shipping mid last month via container, so shouldn't be too long now.

That is what he told me too. If we have the kit at home by the 1st of July I will be happy.

I am hoping some of our friends in the USA have got their kits and can let us know what to expect putting the kits into the game.

If you calc the normal sea freight times we should see them mid next month as it will have been at least 8 weeks by then. I was going to say I'm a little surprised none of the US or CAN owners have chimed in yet about receiving some.

I've been on PPS list since last October, and have received no word. I had heard they wouldn't start supplying upgrade kits until all the MMR's have been sent out....no idea if thats true or not

Any word on whether this shipment actually left?

That is actually a good question. I will find out and post.

You are correct. Shipping delays, no ETA yet. Bummer..

I am glad I am not waiting for a game. All that money gone with nothing to show for it.

I'm surmising since Wayne said it was being loaded the week of the 6th April, it would have been on a ship with in a couple of weeks - I could be wrong there as I don't know how quickly the transport from factory to port would be or loading times. So woudn't hurt to find out.

you post as I was posting so that's the update right there.. So by delays, that it's not left or it was delayed leaving?

Quoted from Our_Man_in_Oz:

I only asked for an ETA, I did not ask where the container was. There will be an ETA maybe later this week. It could be a while.

Ok so we then can only surmise it's left at some stage late April or early this month. So possibly only been on the water for 4 weeks, may less.

Like cooked71 has said, maybe has not left Chicago yet.

I wouldn't get that concerned about it. Wayne's post from April 4th about the container on FB said it was shipping 'next week'. So I'd have to think the thing actually left Chicago Gaming roughly around then. The logical delay would be getting out of port which isn't that unusual really with sea freight. I post to ask if there was much of a delay in getting the container on the water. So I'll see if Wayne replies..

I canceled my Royal Edition after figuring out what’s really going on. My distributor took full payment weeks ago. Then I found out that my game wasn’t ready to ship for the unknown future. They are still waiting on parts from China.

I don't blame u for being frustrated. I learned a long time ago to NEVER pay in full until my game is actually boxed up and ready to ship...CGC did this to me on both AFMLE and MBRLE....the good news is you'll eventually get the game if u can get over the emotional part!

#650 4 months ago

From what I herd Chicago is still under stay at home order. The Royal editions that got shipped were games waiting on parts before they could ship. Some parts came in and a few people finished about 20 games that went out.
