Quoted from aeonblack:

Man, it really seems like the machines have been coming out a heck of a lot slower than anticipated. What gives?

It does feel that way. It seems as if 120-130 has been on the line for a few weeks. Perhaps some non-US machines used up some of the build capacity? I’ve got a party coming up and I was hoping to have TNA on hand, but I don’t think that’s going to happen. Oh well. It’s just pinball

TNA streaming live tonight on Twitch.tv/owlnonymous at a little after 7:00 EDT.

#5805 1 year ago

Lot of TNA streaming tonight! It will also be on at 9:00 EDT (7 MDT) on twitch.tv/coloradopinball

#5806 1 year ago

Ordered $500 in spare boards to put on the shelf. Between this and Houdini I should be safe in the future.

#5807 1 year ago

I'm a sucky n00b, but dammit it I had a satisfying game last night beating reactor 3. Controlled the ball. Started multi-ball. Utilized my ball save times to knock down the grid targets. And re-lit ball lock to start multi-ball to help reach the freaking evil side RAD targets.

Mine is set to 5 balls, and so exciting to reach reactor 3 and get an extra ball. I'm obsessed with this game.

I went to an opening last night at a new local GastroPub. They had a MMR, SW Pro, TWZ. Nothing is as fun as my TNA. And everything else feels stupid slow. I really was able to advance pretty well on these other games, because of what I'm learning in terms of control and speed on TNA.

Where is that guy that graphed out Rob Zombie shipments when you need him!

TNA debuted at Flip Expo in France last weekend. I played multiple games. I got the impression the flippers were lacking a bit of power. More people got that idea, but they figured it could have been because the game was at the end of a row of 9 games, all using the same power source. Game was played constantly btw.

My flippers are like cannons. They completely blast the ball.

Yeah, if your flippers aren't strong enough there's something not right. TNA flippers rip the ball around the orbits and blast away at everything else.

I just received the speaker light up kit!

Looks great, but no instructions on how to install them. And nothing on Scott’s or Spooky’s site.

Any info on how to install them?

I see that you have a Dialed In as well. Seems like a fun two pin lineup. A DI for a deep, mode based game and then the super fast TNA.

Could it be a 220V/50Hz thing? Do we have any reports of well-working TNAs in Europe?

Anyway, looking forward to delivering my first-hand report on ours in about 4-5 weeks

#5816 1 year ago

Is it possible they are setting up acnc line and getting that stuff ready along with tna production? I cld see that slowing things down some since its a small company?

#5817 1 year ago

That’s my guess.

#5818 1 year ago

A few more getting delivered! Per their FB page, 14 machines. Don't know how to link it!

Played one at Pinball Universe in Germany. Flipper power was as expected.

Well I've done it. pulled the trigger on my first real pin. Sent my deposit for Total Nuclear Annihilation to Joe at pinballstar. I've also already sent Spooky my shaker, knocker and meltdown mirrors. I hope they don't mind keeping them, as it's probably several months before they will need them. It was between this and an Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast (Pro). But I just Love Charlie Emery's business philosophy and I want to buy his products. I don't think I could have gone wrong either way, but very happy with my decision.

I also am buying TNA primarily because it’s awsome but secondarily to support Spooky and Scott. I’ve ovend several new Stern pins overall satisfied but some like XMLE and STLE were lacking on code and or bugs or position of main toy etc. which were not or will never be addressed by Stern.

I can tell that Scott and Charley are not like Stern sitting on their market shares and saying they don’t care about the home market because operators are their business and operators don’t really care about the little details that mean a lot to home owners.

Forgot to post it here but streamed several hours of tournament play on TNA from Pinball at the Zoo last weekend. Still haven't had a chance to upload to youtube yet bet it should be archived on the twitch channel still www.twitch.tv/thisflippinpodcast

Going through this thread I noticed something I needed so I just added illuminated speaker grills.

How? I ordered a month and half ago and am 386.

He ordered from a distributor that already bought spots...

I purchased through PinballSTAR. I wasn't positive he had earlier spots, than available through Spooky but was hopeful. I had seen that he sold #327 a couple of days ago.

#5833 1 year ago

I finally got my shaker motor ordered and shipped to Spooky. At game 165, it shouldn't be too long before they start my build, so I figured it was time. For add-ons, I went with the shaker, art blades, speaker lights, and plastic protectors. I'll probably get a physical knocker at some point, but held off on that for now.

I'm 169, so right behind you. Now that it's getting closer, all of a sudden the wait is kind of killing me! First 7 months flew by but the last one has been a real killer. So excited ahhhhh!

We'll be shipping around the same time. It's gonna be a hard wait.

The default setting for the knocker is to go off on extra balls so it’s used more than usual. Can’t imagine not having it now, but I guess it’s the least necessary of the mods if you’ve got to hold off.

#5838 1 year ago

I'm 163 so in the same boat. I have a shaker and will be ordering mirror blades in the next week or so.

#5839 1 year ago

174, so I’ll be in yalls batch as well most likely. I did the mirror blades, shakers, knocker, lit speakers as my add ons.

#5840 1 year ago

Anybody in the past 2-3 days get their invoices or shipping notices? I'm looking at my current projects and trying to see how many of them I can get through before this game shows up and wrecks my progress on those. Haha.

#5841 1 year ago

#150 here, non-butter cab, no invoice yet

#5842 1 year ago

I got an email about an hour ago. #132 has been shipped just today. Margarine cab loaded with all the extra's available. Too soon for an ETA but maybe by the weekend I'll have my game?
I can't wait to get over my jealousy of all you early guys.

#5844 1 year ago

Been quiet on people posting that they got the invoice e-mails recently. I find myself trying not to get hopeful...but I suck at it.

#5845 1 year ago

#124 being delivered Thursday.

I can’t believe it’s not butter!
Enjoy, it’s a fantastic game.

#5850 1 year ago

So, I bought two of trilogybeer pingulps, one bracketed for each side. I’m going to try the double facing inward look on this game.

Gosh, I’ve never been as ready to pay a bunch of money as I am now for this game!
