not as far as i know. the numbers go from 1 to 500 with plaque being different.

#9453 11 days ago

The Halloween numbers seem as expected. I mean who does not want that Topper!

Quoted from Txcoastal1:

Hopefully this is a go. I don't see Spooky on the vendor list YET!?!, but we will know soon

Quoted from PinballSTAR:

PinballSTAR Update -
We still have 1 Ultraman SE and 2 Ultraman LEs available...
Email [email protected] or use the link in our email blast of Wed 7/7... If you don't have the email blast - email us to get it...

Joe, I’m almost certain that I know the answer since no gameplay has been shown yet but any chance of you having a Halloween or Ultraman at the Allentown Show?

#9455 11 days ago

Fun with numbers:

Assuming Halloween games are all numbered 1 through 1250, and Ultraman games are all numbered 1 through 500, and assuming Halloweens and Ultramans are built simultaneously throughout the entire run:

If you have a Halloween number, take that number and multiply it by 0.4, add the result to your game number, and the total is your overall place in the build line.

If you have an Ultraman number, take that number and multiply it by 2.5, add the result to your game number, and the total is your overall place in the build line.

This is obviously a genral guesstimate and does not take into consideration any overseas build groups or other adjustments by Spooky for efficiency or whatever.

This would apply regardless of edition ordered? I.e., CE, BSE, and SE?

#9457 11 days ago

Yes, based off the assumption the numbers are irrelevant of the model (SE/BSE/CE), which appears to be the case.

#9458 11 days ago

Sucks that 1250 is not a CE lol

It seemed like a no brainer for the extras.

Yup, the win goes to King Pin Games for getting numbers out first!

I have to give a plug for KingPinGames! So far they have been a great company to deal with. I’m #420

No doubt. Heard great things. Will have to give Chris a go in the future.

Or just get faster Internet and stay with PinballStar.

My email arrived at 10:02 and my order placed at 10:03 and 40 seconds (IIRC). Pretty quick transaction but probably puts me late middle of the pack. Hopefully sooner! Glad to be buying with Joe for the first time. His customer service and charity work is legendary.

#9463 10 days ago

Ya, I'll be curious to see the final breakdown per model. I had been leaning toward the bloodsucker version of Halloween since not crazy about the gold trim, and usually don't care about cosmetic extras, but on the sale day I changed my mind abruptly and got a CE

I’d say get a hobby but…. well, here we are.

Halloween BSE here, I like the topper but not a fan of the gold trim so it would be £900 extra for the topper and a colour I don't like if I went CE.

Spooky said they were going to run both machines at the same time, with a 2 to 1 ratio HWN to UM, so there's that wrench in the works.

Who’s gonna be the first person to get an Ultraman game with a plastic or two from Halloween and vice versa? Haha

Im not a big fan of that gold either, im hoping i can do something to make them more orange or copper color. I had to have the topper! If it werent for that, i would have gone BSE

Quoted from Roostking:

I agree, not crazy over the color...wish there were options there....

#9472 10 days ago
Quoted from monkfe:

Maybe they will in the store later. My Alice Cooper came with that similar color and I bought the purple armor kit in the spooky store. Came with legs, side armor, lock down bar, hinges and speaker grills.

Talk to Robert stone here about powdercoating. Tons of options, he does excellent work. Im probably sending my Halloween armor to him after a few months of play.

Coolest game number in the run !

#9476 10 days ago

Am I mistaken, but are the standard editions numbered or just build order? They didn't say (only on CE and BSE), but who knows.

They are numbered, but no plaque, if they follow suit with Rick and Morty.

I am number 790 for a CE. So any idea how long before I get it?

Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

Within 18 months.

But really I'd expect you to get it between 6 and 10 months.

#9484 10 days ago

#139! Hoping to see it in 2 months, but ill be stoked whenever it shows

Given the stated output and building 2 pins at once, with a 2 to 1 ratio(I think?). Who knows though, maybe we haven't seen a gameplay vid, because some pins are built and about to drop!!

I honestly think it’s quite bullshiit. License regulations or not, it disturbs me that there’s no gameplay even after all the time and money invested by the pinball community to support this game. Everybody’s been waiting patiently in good faith and still, nothing . Unprofessional in my opinion.

Game play seems like it's coming soon. I'm happy to know I'll get my game because it's spooky. Could be the other way around and see some game play and Pre-order but the games are not even being made yet (maybe ul approved)

#9492 9 days ago

And if it’s a licensing issue, as seemed to be claimed.....
Then turn off the sound.....
You’ve got an advertising video, so what’s the difference between that and gameplay.

Spooky didnt claim licensing issues, that is just speculation from the thread. They said hopefully by end of month.

Yes they did. Kaneda ep 600. Still a dick but the only pinball podcast I can occasionally stay awake through.

This isn’t Deeproot.

Spooky will come through and deliver on what they promise.

Chill.

#9497 9 days ago

We are all in the waiting game, and Spooky has done everyone right so far. I'd rather wait the extra few weeks to see good code and game play. If Spooky is going to debut in Allentown next week, that needs to be well prepared too.

#9498 9 days ago

Again, I am 100% sure that IF Spooky could show us gameplay right now, they would. There is something, licensing or whatever, that is stopping them. I'm sure they want us to see it as bad as we want to see it. We as customers/enthusiasts/hobbiests have no idea what all these companies go through in the background. It's easy for us to say "well just do it". It is rarely that simple.

Agreed!

But we can still bug the crap out of them about it, right?

Let’s go Spooky!

#9500 9 days ago

Most pinball consumers have no idea how quickly they have information. I'm sure what Spooky showed at launch is exactly what they were able to show. They were probably working their butts off just to be able to show what they did. When they are able to show more, I'm sure they will. I don't blame them for wanting that to be a decent video. Many would be okay with just an over the shoulder cam, but we all know if they release a video where an average player bricks a few shots that's going to start a firestorm on Pinside.
