Appears some people have short memories and others have more money than brains for preordering TBL. There will always be some who like to preorder, but 94 on Pinside is as if there is not a concern in the world about this pin. Agree that licensing issues are resolved but does anybody have proof the financial structure is fixed so money can be spent wisely? Do preorders believe that producing these will be a slam dunk?

Reliability of TBL is the last unanswered elephant still in the room. Surprised it hasn't been mentioned as a bigger concern up til now. The game at TPF lasted what, 4 or 5 hours before being pulled because it was broken beyond repair (my words)? Granted it was a prototype, and probably one in the same from NYC. The US East coast launch was at Modern Pinball with two TBL's. One machine was down half the night and the other was working sporadically.

DP are you listening? This pin had better be a lot more reliable or you're entering a world of pain. It would be a shame too because that would be entirely of your own doing. Think of a preorder mob that has just found out their pinball project went south - yikes. I am anxious for a public reveal too so TBL can see some action and we can see it holding up. Of course, I can't wait to see the final art and decent code too. Waiting to buy TBL until they are being shipped and played and issues are resolved. May have to buy a rug off eBay until then.

4/20 - a holiday I can get stoked about. Why did I never know about this day before and how lucky was I to find out about it today of all days and at 3:30pm? Good karma / timing I guess!

Quoted from Hjbondar:

Glad to be # 147 as research shows that it takes 130 repetitions to get the build process right and that the Dutch are not very focused during the Summer!

Don't forget times when the Dutch countrymen are scheduled to be speed skating in the Winter Olympics. Fortunately that doesn't occur until 2018 in South Korea, and your TBL should be completed before then. South Koreans have proven themselves to be crafty skate competitors and they've figured out the car building business. Just waiting for the day when Hyundai or Kia announces they've entered the pinball manufacturing arena. The biggest benefit of that might be derived from a buildup of reliable parts inventories and balancing of the supply chain model.
