Quoted from Mr68:

I'm reminded of the newbie that had a meltdown over his coindoor latch falling off during shipping of his NIB ACNC. I'm still in disbelief on that one.

Same guy, with no prior PM to me, publicly posted that he was having a problem with me (after only a few days, yet claimed it had been a week), because his made to order (with a waitlist) mods didn't ship immediately... Only person to ever do that amongst 1000s of mods shipped (and no complaints even with turnaround times being up to 3 months this year with the crazy demand since Elvira).

Pinsiders are generally awesome.

He's posted in the GnR threads, so in the event I do make any mods for it (game doesn't look to need any), I'll have to remember to deny any orders from him--that's a headache I'd prefer to avoid.

#1103 49 days ago

Soft spoiler alert: Spooky went waaaaay above and beyond for the guy. Worth getting to that part to realize the absurdity of it all.

Wow, just wow...lol Spooky sure did.

#1105 49 days ago
Quoted from Pinzzz:

I just heard 2,000 GNR LE’s sold in 10 days

Between all the versions they likely have more games sold than the entire Data East GNR run! Also more than all Dialed In and JPOTC games combined. This is great for JJP! I just hope they can build them fast enough.

#1106 49 days ago

It’s right up there with the Chodard threads. And others I recall. Might be the best. I feel like I’m be played, as though this event is choreographed and that guy is a paid actor.

Quoted from cooked71:

Wrong hobby. Buy an Xbox.

Still laughing! Pinball hobby is not just playing... But...shopping, fixing, mods, tournaments, socializing, etc. I have 13 machines- always happy when ALL of them are working- Stern's, Sega, American pinball, Bally/Williams. But also happy to fix them- always an accomplishment especially if I can fix 'em myself. Always adjusting and cleaning.

Yeah it almost feels weird when all of my machines are working perfectly.

#1110 49 days ago

I think its worth noting that, especially newbies, but even experienced people will play their games and be unaware of an isolated issue not working.
I've done it but then I'm sometimes a slow learner.

#1111 49 days ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Anyone know if the media during songs is from the concert screens? Or is made for the game? There is some crazy fun animations. The terminators during you could be mine... the TRON like animation etc.
The album mode for Chinese democracy is hilarious

I read somewhere that they leveraged a lot of the animations from the actual tour.

Spooky began including this inspection sticker after that. LOL

Lol..... just read the case behind this.
Dude def threw his toys out the pram!

#1113 49 days ago

Well, just pulled the trigger on an LE.....
So officially a GnR club member

#1114 49 days ago

I pulled the trigger 3 days after it launched for a LE. Like everyone else, I wondering when my distributor will have an idea as to when they will get the next shipment.

#1115 49 days ago

Being in UK, I’ve kinda prepared myself to have to wait till start of next year...... but I’m fine with that.

#1116 49 days ago

Warning, hypothetical post incoming. If they did sell 2500-3000 games. Let’s say they can make 100 games/wk in the new factory with COVID restrictions. that’s 30 weeks at best they’ll have all orders fulfilled, granted there’s no supplier issues or delays with parts ordering. Good for JJP, but a long long wait for a lot of us. It’ll be interesting to see how many people stick to their order and don’t jump ship when stern or CGC show the next new shiny toy.

Good luck and Godspeed to you JJP. You’re in the big leagues now, right where you wanted to be. But a lot hard work and bumpy roads still ahead. Pulling for you to be able to meet this much demand.

#1117 49 days ago

Was their any news today from JJP to distributors on the timeline....? I thought I read that somewhere sometime

#1118 49 days ago
Quoted from Mogg:

Distributors were told they would have a time frame "this week", no news yet though.

#1119 49 days ago

Paid in Full on LE

No clue when it's coming.

Hopefully they won't be producing them linearly... Opening up the second line should easily be able to start cranking out 100+ and multiple versions.. but I'll take quality over quantity. Jim Patla, the new COO has been around a long time from the Bally Williams era and he knows the value of striking while the iron is hot. I can see them ramping up staffing and production very soon if not already to meet demand. It's crucial in order to capitalize the market share.

Quoted from Medisinyl:

so in the event I do make any mods for it (game doesn't look to need any)

Love your mods in my ACNC and I imagine if GnR needs some mods, your talent fits right in!

#1122 49 days ago

Not sure if this has been posted. Cool Fox News article on JJP and GNR.

#1123 49 days ago

Thanks for sharing this.

#1124 49 days ago

Never read this before. That is ridiculous. Way over the top.

#1125 49 days ago

5000 limiteds at least it has it's limit / 500 CE for 5500 total GNR .set number there
How many SE you figure will be made to add to those numbers?

#1126 49 days ago

Eric just said on the Pinball Expo virtual that when Slash visited the factory, he randomly signed some items (top hat, etc) inside some of the SE’s on the line.

Will be a cool surprise if you get one

...probably 2,000 - 3,000 SE’s perhaps?...

500 Collectors sold out in a day or two... 5K LE’s seems to be an easy and fast sell. If JJP sells more than 40M Dollars just with this title, by 2022 they will be able release 3-4 games per year IMO.

#1128 49 days ago

Wow that’s quite a leap of faith. Let them produce the game and fulfill the orders. Looks like they will be busy all next year on gnr which is a good problem to have. Maybe next year expo for toy story

Quoted from Rolls-Royce:

#1129 49 days ago

You think there will be downloadable songs with a complete code set for that particular song, that can just be added to the pre-existing song selection list. It makes sense with this title, where one would pay like $50 to download it to the game, and get a whole new experience.

#1130 49 days ago

I normally respect Caucasian2steps reviews on Pinside but his early review on the LE just seems off. IMO no game is perfect, but sounds like he either absolutely despises the theme or the game he played just wasn’t level at all.
What stood out was a design flaw comment based on experiencing drain issues on plunge but I’ve had absolutely ZERO issues.
Just an odd take as a first impression.
Oh well, hope folks give the game more than one shot out in the wild!

Meh, he gave Munsters a 9 and GnR a 6...That's all I need to know.

Based on my opinion, you should never judge a game in the wild. You can’t hear it, it’s never set up right, the pitch is off, it’s not level, hard to learn the rule set when you have several waiting behind you to play. Just my thoughts.

I want a table with the scores for biggest jackpot lost!

That is cool. Wonder how much the CE owners would pay for it? Lol

Oh but it does, the CE style skull for the plunger would be nice maybe toss in some leds too

They did say it has adult video content .

Quoted from Mogg:

I order my LE on the 8th and my Dist told me I was 7th in line out of then 40 he had on ordered already. He said it will be Nov - Dec till I probably get mine but he heard they might ship out more near the end of Oct and since he had 40 that mine might go out then. Here's hoping.

We are all grown ass men and still want to see boobies.

Hey. did you you know that boobs without nipples would be pointless?

Thre's a great set of boobies in Rob Zombie. Everyone loves boobies, from kids to old ladies and even dogs.
