Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

Wait for underside pics until we make a production sample. My prototype is not zip tied correctly. I can tell you there will be 2 high quality service rails included on the game from the factory.

yay side rails

You spoil us!

#2954 2 years ago

I had to order one of these. I could 3D print a lame one, but this is the official real deal

Do we get a certificate of authenticity? Is every model the LE?

I might as well make a sac rack a permanent fixture on Spaceballs.

#2955 2 years ago
Quoted from TheNoTrashCougar:

Super limited supply!

C'mon Scott, just go for the gusto and make some translucent neon flavors for the TNA loyalists!
Trilogy and I are in for the magenta spool I posted from page 58, but I'd be happy with a neon blue, purple, or orange if more people wanted those instead.

I'd buy another in neon or translucent.

I would be in for magenta as well!!

Sac racks are back up again. For now, we are going to keep them brown, but feel free to paint them to your liking!

Is it true they are all personally signed by Scott Danesi and feature a custom message from him as well?

I may have to recant my statement about being out on the sacfest that I made earlier. Very cool!

#2961 2 years ago

Hope you reconsider! I get it matches a brown canoe, but a neon pink/purple/blue color for TNA would be the bee's knees. You know people will buy them

#2962 2 years ago

I'm gonna turn my 4 sacs into 400. You guys better watch out

Bring your sac rack to SFGE 2018 and I will challenge you!

Consider it done, glad you are coming back to SFGE!

Maybe a sac rack comes with the game

Plastic protectors...worth it? I have never placed them on my games except to protect Arwin on LOTR. Necessary on TNA for HUO?

#2967 2 years ago
Quoted from Crile1:

Plastic protectors...worth it? I have never placed them on my games except to protect Arwin on LOTR. Necessary on TNA for HUO?

I've been putting them on all my games...but then again, I've only been in the hobby since early this year.

#2968 2 years ago
Quoted from Crile1:

Plastic protectors...worth it? I have never placed them on my games except to protect Arwin on LOTR. Necessary on TNA for HUO?

I would say yes. $35 (installed) for protectors is cheaper than replacing a broken printed plastic.

#2969 2 years ago

They can't hurt, and plastics break on every game.

#2970 2 years ago
Quoted from Crile1:

Plastic protectors...worth it? I have never placed them on my games except to protect Arwin on LOTR. Necessary on TNA for HUO?

How much will replacement plastics be? More than $35?

As mine is going on location it's a no-brainer to add the protectors, plus, I actually prefer the look of them with the clear edge extending slightly out from all sides of each plastic.

...one could argue that they should be included if they are recommended so heavily, but I guess the free sac rack with every game, and Scott's signature under the clear on every playfield is plenty of additional freebies already!

#2971 2 years ago
Quoted from Crile1:

100% YES

This game is fast, multiball action, and plastics are in close enough striking range.

#2972 2 years ago

The biggest key to protecting your plastics is to leave them a little loose. When you crank down on them so hard that they are so tight that they can't move is why you see so many broken plastics. With a little give, they can move and absorb a blow way better.

#2973 2 years ago

A Danesi signature under the clear on the PF would be bomb. How do I get in on this?

#2974 2 years ago

I think I have been convinced. Especially since only $35. Also would love the Danesi signature...if that's possible.

#2975 2 years ago

Anyone know if a SAC is the same size as a Canadian looney? I.e. Will the sac rack hold loonies properly?

#2976 2 years ago

A sac Susan b and gold president coin all have the same diameter and electronic properties. So as far as coin mechs go they are interchangeable.

A sac appears to measure 26.5 mm without getting he good caliper out.

Left to right.
President coin.
Sac
Susan b
Quarter
.9 token.

According to Wikipedia loonies and sac are the same diameter but the sac is thicker.

#2977 2 years ago

Thx, so loonies and sacs need diff coin mechs? Does the mech consider thickness?

#2978 2 years ago
Quoted from leaffan67:

I keep a bunch of coins around for testing and adjusting mechs.
The coin mech validates based on size weight and magnetic value. You may be able to adjust a quarter mech but for a commercial setup use a real mech.
I beleive you will also need the coin slot plastic too. Not hard to replace. Would allow the larger coin.
Since happs makes the doors why not email them? I'm sure they will tell you every thing to order from their site for the conversion.

A quick google search found this.

Since I've been looking into TNA I've been hearing this term "dollar game." And what's the purpose of a sac rack?

Typically a four player game. All four toss a buck on the glass and the winn takes the four bucks.

Sac rack is for holding four sacajawea dollar coins. A slick way to hold the money on the game.

Playing with sacs popularized by trilogybeer

#2983 2 years ago
Quoted from bangerjay:

Playing with sacs popularized by trilogybeer

It's a great idea. Brings the feel of there actually being some cool bonus to winning, but keeping it cheap so nobody gets upset if they have a bad night.

When we play cards it's the same thing. Even if you lose all night you only lose $20 or so. That's a bonus for me, because in addition to being terrible at pinball I'm also terrible at poker.

#2984 2 years ago
Quoted from bangerjay:

I may have this wrong, but it was because he was so liquored up when playing, that when he was playing dollar games he was accidentally putting down $10 bills instead of $1, so he moved to the the Sacs.

Winner needs to take a shot, so things even up throughout the night.

#2987 2 years ago

Really, it is just an American version of the popular Canadian LTD (loonie throw down). Does that make it an STD?

Out for a beer and... goddammit scott what did you do!?

IMG_6111 (resized).JPG

#2990 2 years ago

Paid my deposit yesterday afternoon. Should arrive on Monday via FedEx. Interested in finding out what number/batch I'm in. Will report back.

Holy crap, if you are on an island with 9 nuclear reactors on it, please get out of there ASAP!

Outstanding choice

My check arrived Thursday... I was #169 so you should still hopefully be in the 4th batch. I was told early 2018, ug can't wait!

#2993 2 years ago

A little off topic. But trying to gauge what's going on at the Spooky shop: is it true that the Jetsons has been reduced from a run of 300 to a run of 100?

Wouldn't doubt it, but probably they're not making any announcement that'd be like Stern saying they're only going to make 100 WWE LEs it may not be good for business to say if the game is not selling.

#2995 2 years ago

I thought Jetsons was always a run of 100, but perhaps I'm mis-remembering.

#2996 2 years ago
Quoted from lpeters82:

Jetsons was always a contracted run of 100.

#2998 2 years ago

Is Jetsons fun, it looked a little stale from the video I saw.

Fake News!

look it up limit of 300 said so on Pinball News etc.
