I’m in for a CE. I like the look of the butter cabinet but I don’t feel it is worth it. It is my understanding that the finish on a butter cab isn’t repairable. Bumps and bruises happen on pins. I can always replace a decal. The same can’t be done on the butter cabinet.

The best Halloween movie is original but the “NBC” version of it. John Carpenter was asked to tweak the movie while filming Halloween 2 so the original could be shown on NBC. NBC aired a water down version of the movie and John Carpenter took that extra footage and released his own version later on. It’s hard to find the NBC version of the film that has the hard core horror scenes plus the extra footage but well worth it. It adds some depth to Loomis and Michael Myers.

I purchased a Halloween CE with a distributor as soon as it was offered. Spoke with him yesterday about it. He is delivering first in first out (as they should all be doing). He couldn’t tell me when that was going to happen yet but said I will be part of his first shipment. My guess is around Halloween for the dramatic effect. I really think Spooky will try to make that happen.

Nitro just hooked me up with #138. I should be part of the first shipment to regular folks.

Quoted from Halfwasted:

Any word on Nitro numbers yet?

Send him a pm. I got 138. You were a couple orders after me. I'm guessing 140 for you.

Quoted from icyjones:

Does anyone have any idea (maybe from past game purchases from Spooky), if they would sell me an extra back glass. I am feeling greedy and would like one with Halloween on it, and also the one that will come with my CE. Would also be cool to get the extra signed at conventions and such.

I want one too. Can't run Halloween with the topper because of my low ceiling so I wanted to purchase the alternate backglass.

Somebody put up a poll already. JCH, HWN or H78. Let the popular vote decide it. H78 seems the coolest and I’ve heard Spooky staff refer to it that way. Personally I don’t care what it is. All I care about is the fact that I got a game on order.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

It’s an easy decision, ask yourself these questions.
1. Are you going to actually see the art or is it up against two other games? (me: no I will not)
2. Do you even care enough to drop an extra $1k (me: no)
3. If you havnt SEEN the butter..do you even know what your missing. (me: I don’t)
4. Does a butter cabinet make it a better GAME? (me: no)
5. Can you think of better places to spend that $1k (me: yes, definitely)
6. Are you just made of money and don’t really care and just want the most expensive thing just cuz? (me: no)

I would add one more item to your list.

7. Want something that looks good but isn’t repairable by the end user? Decals can be replaced if damaged, butter cabinets can’t be.

Quoted from K9Marshal:

I realize this is knit picky but when you look at the pin and all of the hardware (speaker grill, side armor, hinges, coin door, legs) are powder coated and then I see the shooter housing as crappy silver I become curious why no one says "hey, lets just throw this in with the rest and make it look complete" - I mean it is a collectors edition and the top of their line.
Don't get me wrong I am excited for the pin and actually have swapped twice now to move forward and get it sooner....just feel that it cant cost much more if anything more to add the shooter housing in the oven - I have all my pins powder coated and it does not cost me more to add one more item.
Sticks out like a sore thumb

That isn’t how it will be in the final product. The cool knife shooter was removed for the show and replaced with a standard shooter assembly. The knife version is slotted so the blade handle won’t turn.

#2085 58 days ago
Quoted from K9Marshal:

that makes sense - but is the housing on the final product going to match or still be silver? I looked at the spooky video and the housing with the knife is still silver and in my opinion would look way better with the matching powder coat

I just when back and looked also. I thought I heard that they figured out a way to keep the knife straight. If so, that means there is a different shooter housing that should be powder-coated to match.

I don’t mind the gold but the pumpkins over the speakers should be orange. I’ll wait until I get mine before committing to the change.

Quoted from RebelGuitars:

Added orange anodized lock nuts in 6/32 and 8/32. Matches well with the orange plastic protectors.

This does look good. Do you have a count of how many of each are needed?
