Was there an invoice sent out when the PayPal payments were sent? I know Cliff sends out invoices when you pay him for his protectors. I'm just curious how these payments were processed. I don't buy a lot of things using PayPal.
Okay, forget the possibility that some of the Predator preorder money went toward personal finances. I'm wondering how much went into funding the next project? Good lord, what a mess.
And the people talking about toppers and alternate translites being illegal; that's all true, but they weren't funding their products with other peoples' money obtained on false information.
It seems Kevin is approaching this with the same level to detail he did in acquiring the license for "Predator".
This guy is a complete moron. Why would you allow this to be posted publicly on Facebook with what is going on legally? Amazingly stupid.
There's nothing worse than when someone owes you money and buys things for themselves before paying you back. A brother-in-law got divorced years ago and moved in with us for 6-8 weeks afterwards. Ran up a huge phone bill by using long distance dial-up numbers on AOL, and then we loaned him the money for a security deposit when he moved out. I go by to see him one day shortly after this and he's showing me the new headers he bought for his car. Pay me my f*cking money you asshole! He did finally repay us.
I think everyone in the pinball community hopes you guys at least get the satisfaction of this idiot going to jail if not some money back.
Keith, if the next session is going to be recorded, maybe you could specify a secret word that you can work in to the proceedings for the Pinsiders who will be listening? We've had "accoutrement" and "recalcitrant".
It could be like Pee Wee's secret word! It could also be a good drinking game.
I'm sure this information is somewhere in the 13K+ posts, but I'm going to ask anyway. What was the state of this pin when the plug was pulled on it?
Did the black light features work correctly? If I remember the original idea was that black lights would light certain shots for different modes. I never went to any shows during the time it was being exhibited so never saw it first-hand.
Interesting, I wonder if the UV would have degraded any of the other parts on the playfield? Thanks for the info fellas.
I'm not trying to be insulting with this comment, but I'm amazed that so many gave these idiots money. I really wish I would have seen the Predator pin when it was making the rounds.
Everyone must have been swept up in the boutique pinball fever at the time. Of course hindsight as they say is 20/20.
