Someone must be getting one--they are really cranking them out now--right?

Quoted from Billy16:

I assume that the list of those that can answer that question are only a select few and they aren't saying anything.

got the email today that mine is on the line. i have never known what number i was, so i guess i am not too helpful for people trying to figure out their timing for their games. sorry! pretty excited to get this. i think i will start doing all Alice tunes all the time at work to get myself in the mood!

Did you have an opportunity to confirm or revise your choice of options or was it strictly a notification?

I give me customers a "final chance" when I'm notified that their games are going on the line. Definitely talk with your distributor as soon as you know you want to make a change.

Much appreciated. The lighted speakers were not listed when I made a deposit, but definitely something I want to add. Still waffling on blue or gray, but time to have a movement or get off the pot..... or invoke option #3: remain indecisive while complaining about both options on Pinside.

#4957 8 days ago

no mention in the email about having a chance to change anything. maybe you still can? ask Spooky!

#4958 8 days ago

Charlie, can you give us an update on how many games have shipped and what is the approx number of games going out the door on a weekly basis now that it’s full time ACNC?

#4959 8 days ago

I am 35 and have not gotten any email.

Quoted from Ilushka85:

33 same boat.

#4961 8 days ago

Butter / no-butter would be helpful when mentioning numbers as it sounds like butters are done together.

#4962 8 days ago

I don't get it, months ago they were in the teens. I'm seeing facebook photos of games getting loaded on trucks yet people in the 30's still haven't got a final payment call yet.. Can someone help me wrap my head around this? People must be getting those games by now, right??

#4963 8 days ago

I suspect many of those games are for distros that will take more time to deliver them once they get them. Also, not all people into pinball are on pinside...a small fraction. So, it will be sporadic for awhile. IMO

#4964 8 days ago

Can someone post all of the mod options and prices? I didn't find anything on the Spooky website.

#4965 8 days ago

My reasoning:
Have to have time to setup & convert workers over to working on the new machine.

Have machines going out of the states potentially (combine them with any TNAs also going on a ship).

Machines being made for past customers first maybe? Keep the past owners happy.

Machines for shows and distributors (show season is coming). Often someone will take ownership of the game after a show.

I am sure by the end of this month they will be starting on the first 50 in line.

May be done with first 100 in the series by end of May?

Some explanation would be nice.

But i would speculate like others that those games are going to distributors who are allotted certain number ranges?

Still, you would think those would be the early numbers?

#4968 8 days ago

Didn't they say they were working on some overseas orders for people who were waiting to ship along with their previously ordered TNAs.

#4970 8 days ago

My daughter made me some cool framed posters from images of ACNC that Charlie put online.

Shaker and knocker kits can now be DIRECTLY ORDERED FROM SPOOKY. No need to order from pinball life and spend extra on shipping.

$100 shaker
$30 knocker
$25 install

Shipping #500 to 1 not 1 to #500.

Honestly, the options list should be directly on the Spooky webpage with pictures of each option, updated when necessary. Shouldn't be hard for customers to find this information and potential mis-information is avoided!

I ordered my shaker/knocker from pinballlife this week and sent to Benton because I was not made aware of this new option. Would have saved me $20 total ($15 shipping). Grrr, I'm annoyed.

Did the same thing. Guess they just made this decision. Oh, well.

#4975 7 days ago

I'm #28 and I was told maybe next week so I assume 6 per week maybe and those in the 30s are less than 2 weeks away.

#4976 7 days ago

They also lost a few days with the super cold weather. I'm sure that didn't help get games made or shipped.

#4977 7 days ago

Still odd to me that we need to speculate on any of this.

Meanwhile, impatiently waiting for word...

#4978 7 days ago

You all need a Spooky tracker kind of like Dominoes pizza tracker

LOL, we also need Spooky shoes that have a button on them you push to order pinball machines. Better get on this Charlie!

Quoted from Crile1:

I'm just stating where I feel Spooky can improve in the future. Having to go to pinside to know options is not good control of your brand. Spooky should have the pdf of options available directly on the website, easy for the customers to find. The pdf should have pictures of options like the interior cabinet decals. This will also benefit Kayte from having to answer back and forth emails about options and what each one looks like etc. Win for the customer, win for Spooky (control of information, easily updatable, decreases Kayte's work -- she can just state "go here on the website"). Just a helpful suggestion from a customer perspective!

#4981 5 days ago

lancestorm, I've already been down that road. Thinking that I have good advice/suggestions, coming from a customer's perspective.

You have to remember, they are building pins from scratch (and some ready made parts). Not easy stuff, takes talent, brains and a lot of sweat equity. They're making the shows, talking to people, taking emails and answering questions. They also now have a few titles under their belts, there must be a logical reason why they haven't done some of the things that pinsiders are suggesting.

Possibly up to 10 per week when the weather isn't a factor.

Paid today and I'm #24. My guess is I'll have it next week.

#4984 5 days ago

Paying tomorrow and i am #23. No idea when i get it. I'm from Canada, eh?! Customs has to inspect and poke and prod.... and charge me lots and lots of tax.
Still, excited!

#4985 4 days ago

You can both almost smell that NIB scent, it's that close!

Do you have #24 and #28 ? You mentioned 28 above.

Very exciting to see.

I do have a couple of machine in the 150 range available from my allotment if anyone wants to get on board.

#4990 4 days ago

I have 35 if anyone is interested.

#4991 2 hours ago

My game is #328, I would trade with someone who's number is under 100 if they are unsure of the game or just want to wait and move further back in line instead of trying to sell their spot. Just send me an email.
