Quoted from PismoArcade:

Needless to say, I'm disappointed. Just trying to put a positive spin on it.
Speaking of which, getting a later run pin hopefully means that any minor issues will be corrected.
Either Rush or Godzilla will be announced by then. Luckily, I have no interest in either. Toy Story, which I want should also be announced although I'm hesitant about owning a JJP title.

Quoted from fswanson24:

I just found out the same thing

Me too.... not sure why the industry is so non-transparent. They love to take those full payments though... l And this is from a full payment early may for a pro

Quoted from pinballaddicted:

So why take payment in full when you have no idea how many games you are going to get or when they are going to ship?
Good practice would be to have a wait list of orders and collect a deposit and then full payment once the game is about to ship (unless the game is a LE). Building honesty and a good relationship with customers is more important that securing sales.
I stand by my statement. Distro could have been honest and stated what you just did. I do not care how you spin it, taking a full amount for a game when you do not know when it is going to ship is not the right thing to do.
And for your info, our distro has given us an approximate delivery date and been clear with the financials etc before we gave him one cent. And we live in Australia, so I know Stern has been honest with its distros.

Agreed. It seems the trend in this industry is that people will hold and wait. But hard to swallow when you see in-stock in a few other places. The loyalty goes both ways between a distro and a customer. These things aren't $200-500 machines.

Ordered a pro the morning of day of the announcement, anyone else order day 1 still waiting in a pro?

Raises hand. All crickets for now

Oh man, that is hugely disappointing to read. I am sorry that happened to you and hoping that I do not share in your fate.

Gotta love the transparency these distros and manufacturers have /sarcasm

Quoted from Phbooms:

I give your review a 6.5 out of 10.

His video editing and title graphics / font choice are maybe 2.5 out of 10? :p

Quoted from Gambeno:

Was curious if Pros where back on the line? Seems a few have gotten a Pro recently, but not a lot.

curious too as it’s basically crickets on updates

Quoted from Gambeno:

Just got the call this morning and my Mando Pro will be delivered tomorrow. Order it on the 25th of May.

Awesome. Hoping I hear something similar

Quoted from JCrusher:

Is anyone getting pro's now? In ordered on announcement day and was in this run but still haven't heard anything from my distrib

Mine supposedly shipped last Thursday. Still haven't seen or heard anything. Paid in full mid May.

The gameroom guys example of a july purchase and august delivery, coming before others earlier in line, shows what's wrong with this industry
