Price and anti climatic announcement killed this one for me.
If the game is made it will be a small boutique run, at 9K+ I am out.
The only competition I see with all these new pin makers is to see who can charge the most for the games.

Quoted from Plungemaster:

- It all started with a rug
- you waited 69 days
- you wait another 100+ days
- hype gone....

Then darkness warshed over the Dude - darker'n a black steer's tookus on a moonless prairie night.
There was no bottom.

Quoted from jlm33:

173 virtual preorders translated into 12 real ones? Hell of an attrition rate!
Guess some are waiting for more information before jumping in.

For the price they are asking it better be over the top with a Donny manakin bowler for me to even think about dropping 9K+ on it.
I am amazed they even got 13 people to jump in with zero info, we don't know anything more about this game than we did back when it was a rumor that it would be made.
All that hype just to reveal nothing but the price was an epic marketing fail.
Are they going to like find these guys, anybody got any leads?
We got 4 Pinsiders working on the case, they got us working in shifts.

Lock Box.

Quoted from burningman:

Well, fortunately we have the choice of buying a Mustang at the low introductory price of $4995....

Mustang is a game that is and will be made, TBL is a pipe dream in the idea stage where it has been for years.
If it comes out in 3 or 4 years and if it is a good game and if distributors have it on the floor I may buy one but at the 9K+ price it is doubtful.
For the price this will be a small boutique run nothing that will be in bowling alleys or promote pinball.
The big reveal that showed nothing but a payment schedule was a non event, I felt like a fat girl on prom night.

Quoted from RTR:

It would be nice to stick a PSH line from the movie in as a call out/tribute to him. Any ideas? I can't recall many of his lines.

This is our concern dude.

Quoted from John_in_NC:

Soo disappointed they priced 90% of the market out. I don't understand their strategy.

It could be that they can't build them in volume so they are getting as much as they can for the amount they can produce.
Who knows, the only info on the game is the price.

Quoted from burningman:

daydreaming here...
I am thinking these guys are going to tie the pinball together with a rug in the middle of the PF...with various modes being lit by the various symbols in the rug...
I really need to put down the bong...

Don't touch the rug don't touch the rug don't touch the rug.

Quoted from bemmett:

I'd be happy just getting my t-shirt. I have e-mailed them at least 10 times with zero response to at least 5 different e-mails if not more. Guess I can try calling. Kind of disappointing they are that unresponsive about something small, I mean I knowit isn't important but you'd think they'd say something at least.
Others confirm they haven't received their shirt as well? I was a day one order.

The Dude is looking for your shirt as I type.

Quoted from sammiesguys:

I said I wouldn't preorder a game again. But against my better judgement, I'm in. (Although my better judgement is generally regarded as fairly poor, so that's not saying much)

Quoted from RobT:

Marketing isn't done. Pin hasn't even been shipped to a single person yet.
DP will be at Houston this weekend. Why go to the trouble of being there if marketing is done? Their appearance there is 100% marketing.

I hear El Monte Slim is looking for a gig.
