IMHO, DP is awesome and they put too much great work, time, effort and money into this awesome machine to not make it a reality. My money is definitely on them making it out to the market. TBL looks straight up amazing! I'm pulling hard for them. Pinball needs companies like this to keep growing our beloved hobby. So continued good luck and success to DP going forward.

Quoted from RTR:

Is this the correct can? I don't feel like doing the research...

It is close, not 100%.. I would say close enough. The correct can has aroma roasted on the front, which is the one I got but I haven't seen any for sale since.

If you are color blind, maybe this will be ok, as it is the correct style.

Alright, I went ahead and paid april's final payment today.. game is 100% paid for (sans shipping). So stoked that we're getting close! Crossing fingers they transition smooth into manufacturing but know that's the hardest part..trying to temper expectations but its hard..

Hmmm ... that's ...uh ... quite the topper.

How about photoshopping a TBL game with the upcoming Laseriffic topper (please)? You know ... just for comparison sake!

Any truth to this?

#58 4 years ago

I like the Folgers topper. It's clean, relevant, and didn't cost you $165.

I'm in on this too. That's right - pre-ordering accessories for my pre-ordered game - yeah baby!

Quoted from highdef:

Yep - there's that to be said for it.

Eh the laseriffic topper is not my thing.

You aren't kidding about the rain and cool temps today in San Diego...

For those older folks in the Detroit area, the Air & Space Museum in Balboa Park looks similar to the Ford Rotunda that was destroyed by fire before I was born.

Could anyone shed some light on buying one of these ?shipping? CA tax ? I'd love to jump on board but after my Woz & MMR which understand I'm cool waiting another 6 months for MMR just want the game dialed in etc .I need more info like chrome and the rug ?any help greatly appreciated
Thanks

#64 4 years ago

Website: http://www.thebiglebowskipinball.com/preorder

And latest email which had notes about chrome and rug.don't think this is on website. Would presume this is for any orders between expo and.. Dunno when they end pre order vs "order".. Maybe after April 1? I'd email them about it.

We have received many requests for rugs and chrome and we want to give all pre-order VIP's the opportunity to upgrade with these add-ons. The way to do this is easy: go to your personal page and just check the tick box when you make your next payment (or just this one). The price of the rug and chrome upgrade is $500.

Well production is supposed to start next month that's pretty dam exciting.

#66 4 years ago

If it means anything. I emailed Barry and asked if TBL will have UL Certification.
Barry's response "Yes it will"

Tomorrow I fly out to Australia for the rest of the month for work. Reflecting that when I get back it'll be April 3rd and excited for what's to come in Q2.

#69 4 years ago

Man its an outright downpour today in boutique pinball world. Would love to see some DP NSNL/FB updates soon with some "road to production" type photos to lift my spirits

12 Days to Go before this place is a Rockin!

#71 4 years ago

I want to see that pic but with some cabinents.. Thstvseems step one-ish.. Wonder if they are making the cabinets, having someone else do it as subcontract.. As import from usa seems overkill.

#72 4 years ago

Rumors of a game showing up at TPF this weekend. Would be interested in what it is.. Old prototype (with legaldisclaimer stickers), a playfield swapped one, or a new / preproduction one. I don't expect the latter but boy would that be something.

Cointaker is bringing one. They are the new Distributor for TBL.

#74 4 years ago

Did email Barry yesterday.. The game will basically be the same as NYC during TPF.

Quoted from sd_tom:

I'm surprised they'd still be running the same alpha code from October 2014/NYC 2014 without any updates for a game so close to production?

#76 4 years ago

Well, he added that the audio / video clips from the movie are all submitted and awaiting final approval with universal right now and when they get that, then they can show us stuff "much" further along in the software department. Unfortunately the speed at which universal does anything is out of their control.

I wish I was in the country, I could of probably swung a quick trip over to Dallas this weekend. I still haven't been to a VIP party guess I will have to throw my own when my machine arrives!

#77 4 years ago

Production soon to start!

We better.
We don't need any more stress.

#80 4 years ago

Good luck guys! Wanna be in on this awesome pin but just can't!

#81 4 years ago

Was it at TPF?

#82 4 years ago

Yes but with original code and playfield.

#83 4 years ago

It was moved out Saturday at 7pm. Way before the show ended Sunday at 2:30pm.

#84 4 years ago

Call me crazy but I wouldn't expect any big news on the first.

I think a more realistic expectation is that we get a software / rules focused update sometime in April along with more progress on how the manufacturing plans are coming together.

Your probably right. Considering that they are still waiting for final approvals from Universal on some audio and video bites to be used in the game.

I literally joined the pre-order club with 8 minutes remaining. I feel insane for spending this much on a machine sight unseen, but damn that bowling lane feature is the coolest thing ever. I couldn't resist. Fingers tightly crossed that it's a solid build!

#90 4 years ago

The longest lines at TPF-2015 were to play TBL.
Interest level was high.
I was bummed that they left early, but I understand they probably have other commitments.

#91 4 years ago

So will TBL ship before TH?

#92 4 years ago

played this game in Texas! not for kiddies!!! lol....the bowling feature is neet! did not play it as much as I wanted to cause the lines were slow and long! Not big on pre order stuff, but one day would like to own one!

#93 4 years ago

Oh where oh where is Barry right now?

#94 4 years ago

He's getting the pin together, man!

1 week later

Be patient, Q2 is not over yet Our money is put at work with DP

TBL befor TH, would that not be something great if DP could pull this off? Chances are growing for this

#97 4 years ago

I'm not worked up about Q2 timeline, just would appreciate some updates.. "The journey" and all as well as the reward.

And also, We (the royal we) have been a little slack on TBL quotes. I can't work one in right now, but here's a choice conversation plucked from the many available:

The Dude: What's in the fuckin' carrier?
Walter Sobchak: Huh? Oh, that's Cynthia's dog. I think it's a Pomeranian. I can't leave him home alone or he eats the furniture. I'm watching him while Cynthia and Marty Ackerman are in Hawaii.
The Dude: You brought the fuckin' Pomeranian bowling?
Walter Sobchak: What do you mean brought it bowling, Dude? I didn't rent it shoes. I'm not buying it a fucking beer. He's not taking your fucking turn, Dude.
The Dude: Man, if my fuckin' ex-wife asked me to take care of her fuckin' dog while she and her boyfriend went to Honolulu I'd tell her to go fuck herself.

I'll admit I didn't remember the movie so watched it the other night. I did laugh out loud at a couple of parts.

I wish I could swing one of these - even though I'm not a huge fan of TBL as a movie - this Pin looks AWESOME and I believe will be a huge hit!

Love that the gadgets are being thoroughly tested too. It demonstrates that DP takes the quality/robustness of the product seriously.

Will it be making an appearance at PINFEST in Allentown this year? I would really love to play it in person.
