I'm getting a CE with butter decals. I am 1000% percent excited about this game, and Spooky should be very proud and thrilled with what they've done.

I think the game looks amazing. It's a fresh layout, jammed packed, a million shots, 3 upper playfields, full Carpenter soundtrack, movie assets, custom callouts from a major character, 7 physical ball locks, amazing artwork, etc...

My only (very slight) disappointment I have after looking at the photos and listening to the podcast, is that you can't travel up from the sanitarium to the house level. In my head after seeing the pics I figured you could work your way up the levels...that seemed like it would be really cool.

In the grand scheme of things, I probably won't care when I'm playing the game...there is so much packed in there.

I feel the same way. Little surprised about that but everything else sounds great. Looks like they’re going to do justice for the best scary movie ever.

Hopefully we get some gameplay soon

Especially since I’ve never bought a NIB… till now. If evil dead or scooby are true, I might need another round.

In the same boat here. And especially if Scooby Doo is up soon.

Code matters, think Munsters . I think Spooky team will bring it home too.

That’s quick customer service. So your in Gilbert? Hope you survived the high winds we had. Well I was not happy with the theme at all. I wanted Scooby Doo and it didn’t happen. I am not a slasher movie fan at all.

My wife and I were very worried no gameplay videos. So we passed on buying launch day. I asked my wife yesterday if she wanted Halloween because she did really love the reveal video (Halloween is one of her favorite holiday’s. She said she wants it. So had to decide which version.

Then I sent her pics of CE and BSE. We talked later and we decided to go CE. This will be my first spooky pin. I just hope it turns out good. So what time frame do you guys think it will be till I get the game?

I am nervous but excited also.

Thanks, ya the winds were pretty intense over the weekend. Wouldn't mind so much, but it made a mess of the pool blowing dust and debris inside and turning it green.

Halloween as a theme was the opposite for me. Just the kind of theme I hoped they would make. I was a weird kid into stuff like Halloween, nightmare on elm Street, Friday the 13th growing up, instead of the more normal kid interests like star wars, Indiana Jones, Disney stuff.

I wasn't planning in another pin for quite some time as I've been more into arcade games recently, but when they announced Halloween I knew immediately I'd have to order it. It was hard to explain to my wife after I've been nagging her to save money with a second kid due soon lol. I've been selling a lot of my old console game collection to help subsidize it.

I'm in for a CE. I got Alice Cooper from spooky before and it was almost a year wait. My number was in the mid 300s on that run of 500. I think I should have a pretty early draw for Halloween. My order number was 11342. I'm expecting anywhere between 3 to 6 months wait, but who knows.

Just wanted to take a moment to thank Spooky for creating a pin that I feel was long overdue and my personal grail theme...the 1978 film, Halloween. Thanks to everyone at Spooky that made this happen and congrats to all of you on selling out your direct sales allotment on that crazy day...it sure was stressful!

As a tribute to the original Halloween, what I feel is the greatest all around horror film and my favorite movie from any genre, it was time to update my avatar. Two years ago I made the pilgrimage to South Pasadena, California to visit some of the original locations they shot the film. My wife took this photo of me recreating the iconic hedge scene...

I was clearly not the only one to visit those hedges as the grass behind the hedges near the sidewalk was worn down to dirt!

...and I had to wear my ‘78 Black Sabbath tour shirt that day!!!

Did you listen to Zach's podcast interviewing Charlie, Bug and Luke? Sounds like some great stuff was implemented in these games. Video of game play is coming soon as well.

Im in east Mesa and have a CE on order. Bought way late, so it should be interesting how they trickle out this way.

Halloween isnt a dream theme, but the improvement pin over pin has been impressive and I think this will be a next level pin. Art, service gameplay and responsiveness, as well as the balls to make a true Slasher pin helped. I think it's going to have some issues to work out, but also, epic.

EDIT. Listened to podcast, and the rules sound faf!! I cannot wait!!

Im in N Phx and also got a CE on order, order 11696, so if one of you locals get one shipped first, I may have to request checking it out as its going to be a while

My pool is a little green also. Not too much debris other than a lot of leaves. Do you like Alice Cooper? I had a chance to get it for my wife when they had some left in stock. I was waiting for the announcement of the next pin. Was really hoping for Scooby but what can you do.

I ordered the CE per wife’s orders lol from Nitro pinball. They said about 6 months or a little more. Not sure where they lie on the priority list. Could have ordered day 1 at spooky but wife was not sure if she wanted it. But I don’t mind waiting a bit in case any issues arise in the first couple runs.

A few of us here in Arizona then getting a CE. I am in San Tan Valley. This will be my first Spooky pin. Wife wanted it which surprised, especially with the cost. Will be interesting to see who gets there’s first. I went through Nitro pinball. Do you have a link to the podcast? I don’t know much about the rules.

I'm getting a CE with butter decals. I am 1000% percent excited about this game, and Spooky should be very proud and thrilled with what they've done.
I think the game looks amazing. It's a fresh layout, jammed packed, a million shots, 3 upper playfields, full Carpenter soundtrack, movie assets, custom callouts from a major character, 7 physical ball locks, amazing artwork, etc...
My only (very slight) disappointment I have after looking at the photos and listening to the podcast, is that you can't travel up from the sanitarium to the house level. In my head after seeing the pics I figured you could work your way up the levels...that seemed like it would be really cool.
In the grand scheme of things, I probably won't care when I'm playing the game...there is so much packed in there.

Butter art is printed directly onto the cabinet and then clearcoated. Not a decal.

#539 4 months ago

I cant wait! this is my first NIB pin (11487). I'm seeing a lot of CE pre ordered, I'm thinking that's going to have the largest edition size. Love the topper, but it was the blood sucker edition for me.

I went Direct as It was a frantic frenzy that morning and I wanted to make sure I got one. Later I found out my local guy is a spooky Dealer. Oh well...next time.
I know they are doing 50 friends/family/licensee special orders first. I believe they are then doing 50 distros...then 50 direct. I should be in the first 50 direct if my math is right.

Will be interesting to see how this happens. I ordered a ce at 7am from distributor, so hoping Im at top of his list too, but I have not ordered from them before so not sure how the process works.

I was never going to buy a NIB but when a theme comes up you like and that theme happens to be your birthday, your wife says you have to have it!
Who am I to argue, so I put my name down on a CE. We are excited to get this

It’s a long wait but hopefully will be worth it.
