I'm in the 400's and won't finishing paying off until November. So I've definitely got awhile to go xD excited though. First pinball machine.

#5007 4 months ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

Took a picture just before starting the Vampire . You can see that I defeated pit creature, Igor , and zombie because they are green insects is red because I failed to defeat them . When I took the picture I was one shot away from starting the vampire , the left orbit is lit because that is the one shot needed to navigate left to reach the monster . I started the vampire just after taking this picture and got one shot away from defeating him . Had I defeated him I think I would have beaten my personal best score on this game .
[quoted image]

Doug can you backhand that left orbit?

No , I can backhand the inner left orbit (secret passage ) , but not the left orbit.

Almost a year ago us three were in Doug's room drinkin his stupid warm beer. Oh how I miss those days also I'm a pathological liar.

Gut punch Troy. Just accept it.

A Twisted Sister machine?? I like where your head is at bud. Could legitimately be a great machine if they made it. Dee Snider makes amazing themes in his songs. Come out and play, the beast, I believe in you, shoot em down... so much to work with. Not to mention obviously all their stage persona and what not. Same could be said for an amazing amount of popular bands I'm sure - still waiting for that Megadeth machine in 15 years

I wish some of these games would start going out so we can see some unboxings, get feedback on gameplay, and get this thread moving forward.

#5026 4 months ago

I'm number 97 and KT said they are only in the 40's and are completing 6 games a week. I am excited to get this game in the house, however I am never going to buy a game this way again.

#5027 4 months ago

I sold 33 to a friend. It's on the line now.

#5028 4 months ago
Quoted from DJNOEL30:

I totally agree with this - so excited for the game but also will not buy the game this way again either. Was in right away but I could of waited till now and probably bought someones spot for a discount and could have a low number game.

Some things in life you don't want to be rushed. Your pinball machine is one of those things.

#5030 4 months ago
Quoted from Gryszzz:

Some things in life you don't want to be rushed. Your pinball machine is one of those things.

Agreed, but in the context of the last two comments, I am on side with that as well. This title shows that even with a limited run of 500, there is zero rush or reason to get in at or around a reveal, or even for many months afterward. Take your time, think things through, pick up another game or two and if/when the time is right, come back and pick one up.

#5031 4 months ago

I agree with you guys. I bought my spot for $700 and I'm happy with that. I'm #394 so I'm not sending jostling emails just yet.

#5032 4 months ago
Quoted from trilogybeer:

You going to MGC this year ?

Man I wish. I couldn't do 3 in 3 months. VFW show in May so negatory. Pour some warm beer out for me. Not like it will be missed.

#5033 4 months ago

BUT MAYBE

What would make sense to me is if someone sells their spot then that game moves to the end of the list as if that person just signed up.

Live and learn. And you'd think i would have "learned" by now.

There is someone trying to sell their #139 spot for $500 and no one is biting. If you had to go to the end of the line what chance would he have of unloading his spot? Zero.

OK - good point

First full week of ACNC at Lyons Classic Pinball and I have to say I am Loving it to Death. Working out the kinks like any new game but it is one of those games that makes me say "Just one more game" and I am pretty jaded when it comes to pinball in general. I am kind of glad for some of the negative comments about how hard the shot are and such because once you get on it and start making the shots it is so satisfying and you dont see the whole game right away so it is always surprising you many games in. Thanks to Charlie,Kayte and team for making one of my dream themes come true and thank you Alice Cooper for getting a long haired 11yr old into rock music for a lifetime.

So bummed I was hoping to get up there to play this weekend and life got in the way....stupid life.

Hopefully I'll make it up there this week to play some and doubly hoping mine ships by next week or so!

#5039 4 months ago

Man you guys complaining with relatively low numbers should try being in the 300’s like me! No one likes to wait but as Gryszzz pointed out that’s the price you gotta pay when doing business with a smaller company. Spooky isn’t as big as Stern and they’re cranking these out as fast as they can. I don’t see any other manufacturers out there making a pin as interesting as this one. And at least you can rest assured that it will be made, I was THIS close to putting down a deposit on Aliens

#5040 4 months ago

You have to remember that those with the low numbers have waited much longer than you

#5041 4 months ago
Quoted from lancestorm:

I’ve had my deposit and the extra’s purchased in there since 3/26/18. That was the first day orders after the TPF reveal.

Not really, probably a week at most. But I understand, by the original estimates they should be much further along.

#5043 4 months ago

The important thing is a small company getting it done in a still somewhat timely manner and being pretty updated with the community on the progress of it. Shit happens, waiting an extra... 6 months or a year or however long people have waited compared to the original estimate sucks, of course. But, the delays are most likely for the betterment of the game, too. 10 a week ain't too bad. It's a near sellout game, they wrapped up production on TNA's last year. Thankfully the games are starting to roll out. As they grow, I'm sure it'll get better. Let's just hope the wait is well worth it

#5044 4 months ago

Let's not forget that Spooky said it would have all of the Alice Cooper's built within 18 months. Last time I checked my calendar, it looks like they have another 7 months left to build and I'm sure their pace will accelerate.

If you want to talk about unreasonable delays, keep discussion to WOZ, Hobbit, Aliens, Big Lebowski, JPop etc.

All of which turned out fantastic I may add! Downtime sucks, but the end result is worth it. But yes they should easily roll out around 300 machines in 7 months I think. Plus whatever they currently have (20 or 30 some maybe?) then what hasn't been ordered yet, and what hasn't been paid off yet (like mine). It all works out about right.

My bad. I didn’t realize they sold 300+ in 7 days

#5047 4 months ago

I didn't rush to put my order in on day one to wait 18 months, I rushed to line everything up and have the game by the end of 2018. I don't feel I am being unreasonable here.

I think tna quantity was not expected to be so high and that really derailed the summer 2018 plans. I’m just pumped tna is officially put to bed and now it is all alice

True, let's hope that gets them to more than 6 a week at some point.

I guess that's good problem to have in a lot of ways for Spooky.

I would imagine they regret saying "games will begin shipping by June 1st, really...we promise" while collecting the "non refundable" cash.

While a lot of people don't care about delays, I get it, can you understand why some people might have relied on that "promise" to set a time line to get a game, within a reasonable amount of delay?

The issue is "non refundable" tied in with a substantial delay. People want to compare to JJP but those deposits were always fully refundable and i got my TH full refund after that fiasco.

Like i said, live and learn.
