My kids want one, and I played one at pintastic and felt it was just okay. Not a bad game, but two things happened.
One, JJP got real greedy. $12000 greedy, up $2000 from GNR was the biggest slap in the face to the consumers. Some guy with a big wallet wasn’t the only one that saved JJP, it was the collector market too.
And two, Pat Lawlor. This was a large kick to the ego and balls to have this flop the way it did.
You were responsible for putting a magnetized “thing” hand that grabs a ball, and put more toys in a TZ than a kids toy chest and put not one, but TWO puppet heads on a playfield, and that was the best layout you could come up with for $12,000?
You had an actual license with a PUPPET HEAD as a main character!? Now was the time!
Shrug. I’ll wait for the price to keep dropping.
