Sorry to say that having two threads of TNA is now annoying and redundant.

Well this is a TNA club thread, most machines have a club.

I see that you have started two threads yourself covering TNA....practice what you preach?

» YouTube video

The music has been expanded upon and more is in the process from what I understand. The lighting code has also been added to since that vid. There is a much newer video showing its current state...deadflip twitch account has the replay of it.

EDIT: Two posts down Aurich posted a link to said video

Things you need to know before you call or email Kayte, or your distributor to place your order...

GAMES WILL BEGIN SHIPPING IN 2017! Really, we promise.

GAMES WILL BE MADE IN BATCHES OF 50... This game is not limited in numbers. You will be assigned a production number in the order your initial order and payment is confirmed. Our current game manufacturing capacity is approximately 500 to 600 games per year... we will do all we can to get you your game in a timely fashion.

IMPORTANT!

When you buy a game from us, CONSIDER IT YOURS! We are a small family run operation, and all our purchasing is based on how many initial payments we receive to confirm orders. With available game options, ALL GAMES ARE CUSTOM MADE TO YOUR SPECIFICATIONS. People coming and going on game sales causes havoc in more ways than we can describe... IF YOU AREN'T CONFIDENT IN YOUR GAME PURCHASE, DON'T BUY IT! Initial payments are NOT refundable. We have delivered every single game we've ever promised, so buy with confidence... you will get your game. Spooky Pinball LLC is a happy healthy growing company, and we're not going anywhere. See legal terms below for complete details.

IF FOR ANY REASON YOU DO NEED TO BACK OUT ONCE YOU'VE COMMITTED, it's up to you to find another buyer. Kayte will absolutely help every way she can. Just because we're called "Spooky Pinball" doesn't mean we are heartless monsters. We do care, and we will always do our best to help our customers.

NOW FOR THE GOOD STUFF...

Price on the game is $5,995. Initial payment is $1,000... YOU WON'T PAY A DIME MORE UNTIL YOUR GAME IS COMPLETE AND READY FOR SHIPMENT TO YOU!

Here's your add-ons and upgrades.

Knocker and Shaker Motor Kits WILL BE AVAILABLE SOON FROM PINBALL LIFE. Order from Pinball Life, have them send directly to Spooky, - $25 covers installation of both kits. (Just let Kayte or your distributor know at time of order you intend to do this) - $25

9 Piece Plastic Protector Set - $35
Protect those plastics while destroying reactors!

Interior cabinet graphics - $50
Complete that inside the reactor core look.

MOST RIDICULOUS THING WITH A CRAZY PRICE TAG YOU ABSOLUTELY DON'T NEED - "Butter Edition" cabinet. What is this? Our own recipe! Cabinets are hand dipped in rich colored inks (no decals), lovingly rolled in automotive clear coat protection, and buffed to shiny delicious perfection. - $999
Inline image 9Inline image 10Inline image 11

Photos do absolute no justice to this process, but we gave it a shot... yes, we know this is a Rob Zombie game. Total Nuclear Annihilation "Butter Cabinets" haven't been put together yet.

If you decide you want the Butter edition cabinet, we strongly suggest you pick up your game in person. We can ship, but it adds $50 per game for special packing, and you must inspect the game before the truck leaves. After that, you're on your own. It's absolutely beautiful and must be seen to be appreciated, but it you bounce it off a door frame, you will cry. Probably for at least an hour. Call us, and we'll probably cry with you. May take a few weeks extra due to these being an on demand product.

OPERATORS.... If you need mechs, coin boxes, bill acceptor doors, etc, please let Kayte know at the time of your order. The vast majority of our games go to home sales, so these items are sold on a per-need basis to help keep costs under control.

THAT'S IT FOLKS! As initial payments come in, you will be assigned a number and games will be built in that order... THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR YOUR CONTINUED SUPPORT OF SPOOKY PINBALL LLC!!! We love what we do, and hope you do as well.

TO ORDER OR ASK QUESTIONS:

KT@SPOOKYPINBALL.COM

OR CALL HER AT 815-541-0054

Sincerely,

Charlie, Kayte, and all the minions working hard at having fun here at Spooky Pinball LLC!!!

Initial Payment and Liquidated Damages. Buyer shall pay to Spooky Pinball, upon execution of this Contract, an amount equal to One Thousand U.S. Dollars ($1,000.00) as a first payment towards the pinball machine. In the event Buyer fails to purchase the pinball machine as provided or breaches the Contract in any other manner, in lieu of actual damages for such failures, the Buyer agrees that liquidated damages may be assessed and recovered by Spooky Pinball as against Buyer in the event of failed completion of the purchase of the pinball machine and without Spooky Pinball being required to present evidence of the amount or character of actual damages sustained by reason thereof. It is acknowledged and agreed that the failure by Buyer, as identified in this contract, (the “Buyer”) to complete the purchase of the pinball machine from Spooky Pinball LLC (“Spooky Pinball”) as provided in this contract (the “Contract”) will cause Spooky Pinball to incur economic damages. Therefore, Buyer shall be liable to Spooky Pinball for the payment of liquidated damages in the amount of One Thousand U.S. Dollars (U.S. $1,000.00) for the failure of Buyer to complete its purchase of the pinball machine and Buyer shall forfeit its One Thousand U.S. Dollar first payment and such amount shall be paid to Spooky Pinball as liquidated damages and not as a penalty. Such liquidated damages are intended to represent estimated actual damages and are not intended as a penalty, and Buyer shall pay them to Spooky Pinball without limiting Spooky Pinball’s right to terminate this contract for default.

Nah, it's better now.

Here's a video of the final prototype with art etc that's pretty much what the shipping games will look/sound like:

One thing I picked up from that video is the sub doesn't kick in until you plunge the ball. A nice touch. All kinds of nuances to this game that I see something new every time.

I want into this club!!!!

#163 2 years ago
Quoted from cavalier88z24:

email KT@SpookyPinball.com

$1000 initial payment and nothing else due until the game is ready. considering they are on batch 4 (at least 151 machines) already in front of you, you will have some time to get it all together.

#164 2 years ago

A couple of questions regarding game play:

1) How do you activate the super spinner? I was watching part of the Dead Flip stream again and did not see it addressed.

2) I heard that hitting the spinner when super spinner is lit will activate shaker motor. Are there any other known interactions of the shaker motor at the present? I would think blowing up a core would be a no-brainer...but just curious.

Oh, and #151 right here!

#165 2 years ago

Ok I am undecided, butter cab or not? I think I will keep this game forever and I know it's very expensive to do this upgrade but is it worth it if you plan on keeping it?

#166 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinballlew:

Will your TNA pin be alone in a room, or the middle of a lineup?
In other words... will you and others see the butter cab or not?

#167 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinballlew:

I don't think it's worth it. Your artwork will remain mint if you keep it in the same spot and not in direct sunlight.

#168 2 years ago
Quoted from Pinballlew:

If you plan on keeping the pin forever and not worried about resale value, and if you can afford it probably go for it.

1) better cabinet art presentation
2) supporting Spooky and Scott, they are not getting rich off of TNA and it's s labor of love but IMO if selling a butter cabinet puts a little extra change in these guys pockets I'm not opposed to that.

Whenever I spend too much money on something, I kind of rationalize that I'm supporting the economy by spending money, supporting a little mom and pop company etc..

#169 2 years ago
Quoted from jlm33:

The cabinet would be seen where I would place the machine.

Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

Good point...the game probably wouldn't move much and not be in direct sunlight.

All good points...

I will have to think about it some more...thanks all.

#170 2 years ago

Value like beauty is in the eye of the beholder.

It's like this, some folks will go to the Super Bowl and spend $5-10k for a weekend, hotel, travel, meals, plus game tickets etc..

That's not for me, but if they enjoy it and it's fun for them etc..

My point is some people can afford more than others. Some people $5995 is a stretch but others not.

What I'm saying is that (IMO) the option does have some value, maybe it's just somewhat better than decals maybe it's a lot better I don't know.

But put it this way if it were free you could take decal or paint most would prefer the paint.

If it were $99 upcharge probably most would prefer the paint.

I'm sure the price is twofold

1) it costs more to do the paint
2) Spooky and or Scott will get a bit extra profit.

I'm unsure if it's worth all that money, but heck of a deal when you consider BM66 SLE costs $15k. That's double what TNA costs with every option.

#171 2 years ago

Finally I'll add it's not as if Spooky is pushing us to buy the butter cabinet it's more like they're doing it as a curtesy in case we wanted it. So I'm not thinking that Spooky is making a bundle on this option paint cabinet.

I'm getting it but at the same time I'm apprehensive that it'll make me more of a worry about it if some kids decided to scratch it.

#172 2 years ago

If you sit around staring at your cabinet, get the butter. If you don't,then get standard. I, personally, could care less about this option. But,everyone collects and values different variables. Nice to have the option if you do care.

#173 2 years ago

I just figured that you would have no issues with cab wrinkles in the decals and if there was an issue with a scratch it would be pretty easy to fix it.

#174 2 years ago

The way spooky decals cabinets is very nice . I believe TNA will also come with the metal cabinet protectors . But yeah if the buttered cabinet were to get a scratch it could be buffed out if not scratched through the clearcoat .

I'm thinking maybe just the standard cab then...thx.

#176 2 years ago

Forgot to join the club thread. I'm in. Sent my deposit in last Friday. Waiting on my email with build number and what not.

#177 2 years ago

If I were picking the game up, I think I would go for the buttercab. But they WARNED against having it shipped. And I'm gonna listen to them.

Quoted from moonduckie78:

Yeah but they would ship it with special packaging. The important part would be, like they said, to open it up with the delivery driver present to make sure it arrived perfectly. I would probably stress out checking it.

What makes it different from shipping any other NIb? I'm going for regular cab.

We're you or anyone else given a delivery guesstimate?

#183 2 years ago

Just throwing it out there, but the official TNA launch party is during the PBL Open House on Oct. 12/13. There will be three machines there: the whitewood, the proto, and the production model. My guess is that they are going to start shipping shortly after...but this is just pure speculation by me.

Well... I got off the fence and jumped in today. Batch #4 I'm guessing first quarter of 2018. I'll be at the open house (look for the grumpy Gus that rubs his chin alot)

Can't wait until the club/owner's thread becomes the more populated area on the forum vs the development TNA thread.
