Quoted from VALIS666:

Those last two haven't sold, you know. And if people want to keep their pre-order spot, sell it at cost, or sell it for megabucks, how does this affect you? It's a weird thing to be upset about. Every single person except you could sell their spot and nothing at all about your pre-order or the game you'll receive would change.
No idea what the Deeproot comment is about, either. You're the one who bet on that nag, not me. That said, I never poked fun at you guys and always hoped you'd get your games, or at least your money back. I still do.

1st of all I wasnt talking about you when I mentioned the deeproot thing. That person knows for a fact that I was talking to him and only him.
Thanks for not being one of those guys I appreciate that.

Now if you can do me a favor. Please go back and read my post again.

I clearly mentioned it would be "nice" "if" "spooky" kicked everyone that was "$calping" their machines to the back of the line.
If they did that everyone behind that # would move up 1 spot everytime someone $calped their machine.
Think of it as a penalty for having spooky waste time on having to switch out the names and what else goes with it, not to mention the fact it takes them away from building our machines.
If spooky did that it would also stop the $scalpers in their tracks because not many would over pay for the last spots. Only gonna get worse as machines start shipping. And yes $calping is what they are doing. You can call it want you want. So will I thank you.

Do you really believe all these people all of a sudden had a catastrophe in their lives and now have to sell their machine? People dropping 9k+ on a machine "dont" all of a sudden need 2k. They have plenty of money. Wouldn't you think?
The ones selling their machines at cost are probably selling because they realized it's not for them. I like to think of them as the good guys. The ones I contact when I see them selling a game I want cuz I know their good people.
To be honest it does not matter to me one fn bit about the profit thing. It's the line jumping and the fact these people paying over retail will only encourage the $scalpers to do it more and more if it doesn't stop.
You dont think I have the money to buy one of these spots? I choose not to.
If you cant see that I guess we'll agree to disagree.

I'm passionate about both hwn and um to the point I couldn't sleep a wink the night before they went on sale. Took the day off work and was at the ready waiting to order well before the bell rang. Then the crash happened. It was brutal and painful to not be able to make it through checkout.(first world problems lol) But at the end I was happy to have secured a spot for both.

Think of the enjoyment you and your wife felt when you secured your hwn spot!
Well that feeling was × 2 in this household. Hope you and yours enjoy hwn when it arrives!

I've said all I have to say about the subject. Dont believe me, look above.lol

Moving on, hope this cleared things up.

#1806 3 months ago

No one has sold a spot for $2k profit (yet) ...moving on.

I get where you're coming from, and it's good of you to clear the air. That said, it's hard to say anyone is doing wrong by selling something they own, which is what these pre-order spots are. It's a $2000 down payment voucher for an item, so it's worth at least $2000 to someone else. Whether they desperately need that money or just want it for other pins/entertainment stuff, it's still fair game to sell something they own for whatever reason. I don't think scalping these spots for considerably more money is a cool thing to do, but it's just going to happen if the buyers are there. The big buck pre-order scalping/flipping seems pretty low with this game and UM so far compared to what we've seen with Mandalorian, GnR CE, and Rick & Morty (I can't believe people are paying $500+ over distributor prices for a Mando Pro/Premium, which are going to be on and off the line for 5 more years, but that's another topic).

You put in the effort, and thankfully you got your spots. What everyone else does around you isn't going to stop you from getting your pins on time or change anything about your experience. If this was one of those PS5/Xbox Series X situations where scalpers held the market in their hands for a year, I'd definitely see where you're coming from. But it seems like everyone who wants a HWN/UM has managed to get in, or could get in now with no/minimum extra money.

Hope you enjoy your games too. Cheers.

So when are the first locations supposed to get their games?

I hope soon. And I hope it is posted where people can play them. Besides future shows.

#1815 3 months ago

Thought they said first 30 are built but they will hold them for two weeks for quality control.

#1816 3 months ago

Any mod makers have any good ideas? I have a few but will wait until my game gets here before I implement them

#1817 3 months ago

Blood dripping from the bottom of the cabinet onto the floor. Perhaps a sprayer from the head that sprays blood into your face when you play.

Not complaining at all but Ultaman has 3 different looking buildings on the left I believe .Maybe change 1 hedge so he swings out from the back of the station wagon and 1 hedge like he’s swinging out from behind a tree or a couch although with that the sizes won’t jive .Other than that swap the pumpkin scoop for the mask since theres other pumpkins on the CE ? Something with the asylum patients 3d in the first upper ? This game is stuffed as it is I’m extremely happy with that but am always game for something that makes sense and is presented well .I’m all for personalizing with keepers

#1819 3 months ago

These people did such a great job on the looks of this pin it’s unreal .Just came to me , make a custom tombstone with the owners name on it to mount on the plastic next to MMs sisters .Now thats personalizing a pin !

Do we know yet for sure whether this game will be at SFGE later this week? I assume so, since Spooky has an official presence and Charlie is giving a talk, but it would be good to know with certainty that I will get to see it in person sometime this weekend!!!

Was watching YouTube and saw this in a pawn shop .
The ultimate topper ?

Quoted from Kkoss24:

IMHO It makes sense that the hedges are the same while the buildings are different.

The hedge is in the movie and MM is one guy that you are chasing/being chased by, and don't know where he will pop out.

In Ultraman, the alien kaiju Baltan replicates himself to confuse the enemy, so multiple huge Baltans in a broken cityscape is a different situation.

#1826 3 months ago

Looking at the for sale ads, we are now seeing lots of people trying to unload their game. I rushed to get a deposit down on a CE just like most here and still ended up around #900.
I don’t care that all these guys are dumping because of that ridiculous Jack Danger video that contained a quarter of the sounds and assets. I know this game will be good once it’s finished. I just wished I would have waited and scooped up one of these earlier numbers for the same price or lower from these panic sellers.
Hindsight I guess..

#1827 3 months ago

The real question is why do all three of the CE Halloween for sale on Market right now have almost the *exact same text*, but yet is from 3 different users. The BSE that's for sale is different, so I'm pretty sure it's not a "Pinside thing"....but it does make me wonder. I'm sure it's just a total coincidence that all of these three accounts have under 20 posts, as well......right?

If that's the case then why be arsed to change literally one character? From and 8 to a 6? Or vice versa? You're really going to bother for 20 dollars when you couldn't even CHANGE THE NUMBER OF THE GAME??? THE FIRST TWO BOTH SAY THE SAME GAME NUMBER.

Even if UM ends up with the superior final code the theme does nothing for me. Halloween will always top it for me.

You’re right Frax

I didn’t notice the game numbers. I don’t use emojis, but that hand up, I’m not buying this bullshit one is great.

#1833 3 months ago

Why are people flipping this game for so little? Is it going to be that bad lol
Not even sure why they bought in the first place, probably thought they could flip for more! I do not think they intended on keeping the game.

There is a guy on the Facebook page needing a later number because of house reno..

Hey all! I have #88 through spooky, but trying to see if I can go down the list a bit if possible with a swap (higher the number the better). Home remodeling over the next year or so and won't have space/time/etc to set it up and if I would receive this early I'd just put it in storage for a good while.
I'm assuming swapping numbers only works within the same source of purchase (direct/distributors).

People are backing out. I wouldn't call most of the spots for sale "flipping". There are still games available from a couple distributors, so no on will be making big money on a flip right now.

I’m sure someone will do a sound mod a la cleland on HWN for sure. Would be cool to insert all the best music from the entire franchise (Just to switch it up from time to time) The original 78 music is so classic but there’s not a ton of material. Can’t wait here more of the Count D music for HWN as well. What I’ve heard so far sound VERY COOL and I’m real nit picky about music.

#1845 3 months ago

I completely forgot about the 2nd part of this: "The complete original film score and newly inspired by the classic film music from Matt “Count D” Montgomery"

Any of the new Carpenter Halloween music would be a good addition too if possible.

I think that Spooky has their game images encrypted which would prevent any sound mods, unlike Stern where you can update them with Pinball-browser.
