Blatant rip-off from another post

My JJP interest level:
WOZ 45%
Hobbit 100% (currently own Smaug LE)
Dialed In 73%
JJPPOTC 58%

Wonka 84%
GnR (-100%)
Toy Story "To Infinity and Beyond"%

Must have the Buzz Lightyear SE with phosphorescent green armouring!

Hopefully for you that pin rumor comes true and actually happens.

Wtf you're way too high on your ratings of the other JJP games... If your not bashing them how is this even news?!?

Jersey Jack told me Toy story is happening, after wonka and GnR

Call me skeptical but you’re saying Jack himself told you this? Where? When? Why would he give away that secret to you?

#6 1 year ago

I will also be in on this if it comes to be. I love the movies and so does my daughter. She would get a kick out of it.

I'd love Toy Story with character ability selection like PotC. Wish could have John Ratzenberger for the custom call outs (or Tom Hanks brother Jim) see this it's what Jim does for a living.

Both John Ratzenberger and Jim Hanks do voices in video games.

talk about a major villain..

I wont be buying any JJP games until:
1.) I'm sure the Mirco clearcoat doesnt shell out
2.) Factory design flaws are taken care of (has there been a JJP game yet that didnt require some sort of part fix?
3.) The code has been given time to mature.
If I end up buying used that's fine. I'll let the NIB owner take the initial financial purchase beating.

#23 1 year ago

I'm not a huge fan of the TS series, but the possibilities of creatively are enormous. I'm really looking forward to seeing what they can do with this theme. I have a young family and it could be well suited. We just bought a NIB Hobbit LE last week to compliment our WOZ and the family is really enjoying it. Wonka captivated me with the hype, but the hype wore off and my kids have never got into the movie. Pirates is a must purchase if they do another run. I'll sell a few of my Sterns to fund if needed. GNR is a pass. Loving the depth of rules and gameplay in the JJPs and they are getting much more usage at home than any of our other pins.

#24 1 year ago

Yep Pirates first few months of 2019 and Wonka the rest of the year. Thats 2.

Yes, he did. At my house after dropping off an arcade cab that I bought from him.

Assuming thats true, I am pretty sure Jack would have asked to keep it private. Especially with a Disney title.
They make people sign a non-disclose about these things, and if your speaking the truth dsmoke, I wouldn't be repeating it. But that's already too late because you put posted this here. I'm sure Jack reads this site (Gary too).

Ok so where’s the pin? New movie was just released yesterday and no announcement or nothing. Just like The Hobbit, failed missed opportunity.

Definitely would have been better in place of Wonka.

2020 will be the 25th anniversary of the release of the original Toy Story, sounds like perfect timing to me.

Really?? I could care less about your opinion; keep it to yourself.

This is a pinball site talking about pinball...This is rumor that has been heard for the last year plus...I highly doubt that Jack will care that people are clamoring for info about his company and his pins...He's a great dude, super nice; and he loves pinball, just like all of us here.

#32 1 year ago

PS, it will be the first JJP that I buy!! Cannot wait; will be interesting to see what they do design-wise, if they go fresh; or just reskin DialedIn; I'm all over it either way.

#33 1 year ago
Quoted from dsmoke1986:

Just watching out for one of my fellow pinball friends here.
Yes, every company wants people talking about their products, but products that actually exist. Not ones that are vapor.
If Stern and JJP want hype, they would announce their titles way in advance, but there are reasons they don't. Sometimes titles end up being shelved.
Disney are very sensitive about their name and their product. They could even be reading this thread. Who knows. But like I said, I was looking out for you.

#34 1 year ago

Jjp really knows how to strike while the iron is cold. Here we are again. Toy Story 4 is now out and nothing about the game. Going to go the pirates route I guess and wait until interest dies down and then release the game, then after less than a year say they are shelving the game due to poor sales...

#35 1 year ago

TAF pinball came out 4-5 months after the movie and did ok.

I don't want them to rush the pin just make a great pin.

Took my family to see Toy Story 4- we really enjoyed it. Toy story is a great theme, lots of potential to be a great pin.

Who decided to license the hobbit after those movies had already came and gone? When they announced the hobbit game a few years after the last movie had come out, I was surprised. Most people consider those movies to be pretty disappointing. I can understand doing a game in the middle of the series, but a few years after? It's like they timed the release to coincide with all the YouTube documentaries tearing the movies apart.

#42 1 year ago

Wonder if we get 4 chapters, 4 movies in the game?

Surely with the delay, TS4 will be in the game?

#43 1 year ago
Quoted from seenev:

The license was earlier. It took a couple years to get the pinball machine to market. The game was announced around the release of the second movie.

I didn't know they had announced it that far back. That's a really long interval between announcement and shipping. I know that by the time I heard about it I already had a negative impression of the hobbit based on disappointment in the movies. Had it been JJPLOTR instead I might have ordered one. I just don't understand licenses like Willy Wonka or GnR... They seem so out of place in 2019. Toy Story done right might always have some interest but missing a timed launch with the movie seems like a missed opportunity. Having pirates come out after that iteration of the series was over also seemed poorly timed. They might all be great games regardless but it's hard to get interested in a theme based on something in the DVD bargain bin.

Toy Story 4 grossed almost $240M on its opening weekend. I'd say there's still some interest in the theme.

Toy Story is a brand that will always have some interest. While not a failure, the new movie opened lower than expected ($118 million in the US versus $140 million expected), so you could argue that interest in the brand is in decline. Toy Story 4's debut is lower than Toy Story 3 if you adjust for inflation.
In any case, interest in the brand is certainly higher near the release of a movie and it would have benefitted jjp to time the release with the movie.

Google the "Blue Ocean Strategy". In a nutshell, it's the idea that you seek to expand the interest in your products rather than fight over the same customers that you competitors are. It was a strategy famously employed by Nintendo when the Wii came out, which has been extraordinarily successful ever since.

You have a bunch of middle aged to older people vying over outdated franchises, yet there are multiple younger generations now that not only grew up with a franchise like Toy Story but also have had little-to-no exposure to pinball. It could be quite a fruitful market to go after.

Of course I'm not entirely saying that's JJP's strategy since they are wasting their time on a GnR machine; but it's certainly something to consider.

I think they would be better of going for vaiana or even better Coco.
Thoose stores are better suited for pinball, esp Coco.
The music is better. The characters are not as high profile=better shot at getting assets, call out voices etc.

Booth vaiana and Coco are more likely to also draw in alternative ethnic groups into pinball.

It all makes sense.

Also.....

Coco is absolutely visually stunning, which can not be said for toy story.
