Quoted from Soulrider911:

This just occurred to me, does anyone know how many Big Lebowski's they have parts to build? or are they now manufacturing them?

Making new parts for new games.
All is good.

Talked to Melissa today, good thing I called, they had made a mistake and I was out of order... I am in the next batch (after the current one)!! pretty excited, not I have to offload a pin to make space which is always hard

But that means I'll have to wait longer. Just kidding. It sucks not knowing exact dates but we need to be patient as they are being made and sent. I feel bad for EA's... Calmer than you are Dude, calmer than you are.

Nothing is fucked here, man.

#13005 12 days ago
Quoted from vwallat99:

I was on that original list where there was no deposits and when it started to ramp up machines going out I called to see where things were at and I had to put down 1K to get onto another list I think so if you guys are cool with that 1K hold I'd call and figure that out because I'm sure you are getting skipped over for those that have. I put my grand down in October but I was probably the first 100 on the non deposit list.

This is what I meant, the evidence is out there. Calm down folks it was an observation not an accusation. They are a business, and CT isn’t making any EA whole that’s DP.

Fingers crossed for you, I heard that multiple times from her.

#13008 11 days ago

I'm glad to hear things can be figured out as easily as a phone call. If customers are taken care of, then my reliance on the system increases.

Nobody is trying to scam anyone here, man.

#13009 11 days ago

Someone above had a great idea for niche machines (TBL, Aliens, RAZA, R&M, etc) why don’t they just assign a number and let you know your number. This way as people get their machines you can gage roughly when yours will come. Some transparency would go a LONG away.

Without a little transparency people speculate all sorts of things!

#13010 11 days ago

TBL did do that, But they have sold more non numbered machines while people with their number are left waiting,

#13011 10 days ago

I’m committed now. Preordered May 16, paid in full 4/26. The invoice stated games will be shipping May 8 to the US, as I think someone else posted earlier. Fingers crossed.

#13012 10 days ago

wow the order of these seems very nonsencial to me... Myself and I know a few others that had pre orders in November of 2019, and have not gotten ours? Hmmm

Yep, nonsensical sums it up. I received no reply to my email inquiry last week--I'm guessing because there is no good response. I suppose I'll have to call, but at this point I want to have everything in writing. If it wasn't for the emails, there would be no proof of anything.

Dutch pinball is selling direct to customers
locally first for higher profits.
This would make “lists” and “time lines” a
Joke to predict for USA customers.

They’re specifically complaining about the order of sales that were all handled through Cointaker, not direct through DP.

I preordered in November 2020 with the refundable $1000 deposit. At that point I was told March / April. I reached out to Melissa yesterday and I'm now told I'm 4 months out. Not sure that helps anyone, but wanted to provide the info to see what others are being told

#13017 9 days ago

Interesting so you preordered in Nov 2020, I did in Nov 2019... hmm

Maybe reach out to Cointaker and ask them to give everyone an order number so everyone knows there place in line.

#13021 9 days ago

Calling and requesting to apply numbers (though a logical idea) would be a bit direct... Melissa is super kind and I know they are overwhelmed right now, I don’t want to add to that.

I have faith, just trying to make some sense of the order process, which clearly I just need to take it as it comes.. kinda had a rough night and I hate the Eagles, man... wasn’t thinking straight

Just got an email from CT that my TBL is shipping from their facility tomorrow.

#13024 7 days ago

You are being very unDude. The apron is a must right?

#13026 6 days ago

That Apron is amazing!! it really ties the game together... dude

Checked the FedEx delivery box for today between 1&3.
Was cutting the grass and saw FedEx truck pass and thought I may have missed them, so I called. No delivery scheduled for today. WTH? They said most of the time, they forget to even notify the customer. That's swell.

It a great feeling firing it up the first time.

#13030 5 days ago

Plays great. Getting a lot of sdtms shooting the Donny shot when it loops around. Not sure if it's supposed to feed to the left or right flipper?

#13031 5 days ago

Opportunity to skip the line just went up. Just 18999. :/

Why would you pay that when there’s a NIB for ~$2,000 LESS?.?.?

You wouldn't.

#13037 4 days ago

19k?

I'm content with someone giving me 6.5k to wait a few months for a TBL.

I refused to pay 15k to skip the line. Waiting isn't that big a deal. Have the cash in the bank for whenever my number comes up too.

#13039 4 days ago

Maybe I missed a post where you clarified what exactly you mean by "this is what about $3500 looks like". Many people are lost in wonder as to when they will receive theirs (as I had been since Jan 2020 up until 2 weeks ago when I finally got mine). This forum is a place where pre-order folks visit to try to understand expectations as they wait. So, can you please clarify what you mean by this statement?

NIB worth about $15.5-16k vs $12.5k and a years wait. That’s all. Took me about 13 months from deposit to delivery. Just showing it unboxed.
