Got word that some emails ended up on the junk folder.
To all that sent me the email address, I ask to check the junk folder in case you got nothing.

I got my tracking number! Wooo Hooo!

So... these are being mailed out already? How many are in each run... I see they they say #___ of ___. Are there 30 in each run? or more/less? Just curious as to how limited this print/translite will be.

Seemed like he was gauging interest before capping it.

Mine got dropped off for shipping today

I’m just curious as to how could it say #___ of __ if he doesn’t know what the cap is?

I believe he added up all of the pre-orders in the total number plus a few extras for late people that may have missed the cut off. I believe it is going to be a maximum of 30 of each but I will defer to the artist Federico to confirm. Maybe it was 30 total of any version?

Except for the original no color no blood yellow which is going to be super rare as it was the very first version and extremely limited... mainly because nobody ordered it except for me...

Oh and I got my tracking number today!!! So excited!!!

#208 5 months ago
Quoted from Pinzap:

30 pro (yellow, color, blood), 30 prem, 30 prem blood. 90 total.

#209 5 months ago

That is correct. 30 units per pack. (all the pros go in the same pack)
Almost all the main interested are gone and I am still getting emails. I gave it a good number so all the late interested can have a chance, but I am pretty sure it will sell out some time.
I want this to have that limited feel so the people that got it know it is exclusive. I am pretty sure that nobody got it to resell some time but you never know hahaha

Anyone have a picture of a pro with the premium with blood colors? I want to see one before I choose pro or premium with blood

While you’re at it, would you mind doing a mock-up of the Premium with the Pro translite?

No one has received these yet. He just shipped them yesterday.

#214 5 months ago

The Pro color with blood is going to look great next to this. I won this in the "Project Pinball" raffle, there are still tickets available for the premium model.

It sure will. Congratulations on the win. And on the custom translite too.

#216 4 months ago

For the pro, I strongly suggest the pro color blood:

#217 4 months ago

Premium with the pro translite and premium blood translite:
It looks very nice when you are playing, but when you look at the machine as a whole the premium blood looks way better. This means if you have the machine in line with others on the sides, where you can't really see the cabinet art clearly, the pro looks very nice on the premium or LE.

Thank you for the mockups. Mine is in a row where you never see the cabinet art (other than by coin door) so I will ponder this for a day or two and email you when I’m ready to order. I do like the look of the blood red for sure and might be a nice change from the current heads in a fishtank look.

#219 4 months ago

I don't have good images of the premium machine, but the pro blood on it would look like something like this:
(I think the machine doesn't have so much blue lights present. this picture has it but I think the pf is more red-ish)

You've got to love snail mail. Mine processed thru
the New York facility on the 26th and nothing after that using the tracking number. I hope it pops up on Saturday.

Same thing happens here in canada. I believe they have a deal with USPS (in Canada it’s Canada Post) so the same tracking number may works with USPS. Worth a try if you want to track it hourly like I am. Lol

Same here, mine has been sitting in NY since May 26 as shown below with the latest tracking status from USPS.com.

Your item has been processed through our facility in ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS) at 7:24 pm on May 26, 2019.

Exact same for me as well.

#228 4 months ago

Same here. Thinking it has to clear customs...

#229 4 months ago

Yep. Me too. All of our packages are sitting in a mail room waiting to clear customs. I called USPS about it and they said that it was normal for 1st class mail to sit for a while because they have to process any Express, registered or priority mail before 1st class. Then I asked her how is ours ever going to be done because I'm sure more of the other type mail comes in every day and if they have to process it first, ours will sit indefinitely. They will get to it eventually she said.

Sounds like a great system....I hope we don't have something like that here in Australia.

Got my Premium blood version installed today.
It is awesome.
Thanks for making these.
I'm sure everyone is going to be very happy with them.

USPS is a total joke, took three days to get here from Portugal and now it's been 8 days to get it from New York to Colorado unacceptable.

So after following this project and it’s progress for 3 years I must say my expectations were very high. And after seeing the finished photos my expectations were even higher.

I knew there was a good chance that receiving the finished product, I could be disappointed.

NOTHING COULD BE FURTHER FROM THE TRUTH!!! I am blown away! Federico I know you are a professional artist but this is beyond words. However as a tribute to you and this work I feel the need to give my personal review here...

Pulling the translites out of the tube the first thing I realize is that these are printed on high quality film. I think film? They are heavy plastic like the factory translite. Not quite as thick but I think that works as an advantage as I hold each up to a window and the light comes through to provide a wonderful look at all the amazing details. And there are so many details to take in.

I must admit that watching this develop over time I really thought the style was “realism”. I was so so wrong! These are done in a graphic novel style providing realistic characters with just enough comic styling to give it a creative edge. That is perhaps the most wonderful surprise... it’s much more like looking at the cover of a graphic novel then a photo in an album.

And falling from the package as I pull it out are the limited original hand signed prints. These are of the first drawing done by Federico at the start of this project. That drawing is not on the translite so very cool to have it here signed and inscribed by the artist “stay alive with the walking dead” and numbered 4 of 30... and to finish it off two colour stickers with the same numbering - one to be placed by me on the back-box and the other to be tucked safely away.

I couldn’t decide which version to order so I actually ordered almost of them ... the premium (Green) without blood, the color pro (Red) with blood and, as a last minute decision, the artists’ original rendering... the pro yellow. You can’t go wrong with any of them! Each of them lights up beautifully from the back showing all the features in dramatic graphic novel style.

Thank you Federico for your outstanding work ... I am truly a fan for life!

I can’t wait to put one of these in my Walking Dead Pro which is unfortunately on location now so the install will have to wait. One will be framed along with the signed print. One will go to another local pinball enthusiast.

And all will be enjoyed forever!!!

Haha I knew it!!
Thank you for such nice words! I really appreciate it!

I was also blown away when I printed my first tests. Makes me wanna buy 2 versions of the machine so I can have the 2 translites showing at the same time

(the light on the backbox is even brighter and you will see the colors pop out even more when you instal it, so you will be even more blown away heheh)

Received mine yesterday. I am travelling, so my wife took delivery. Hoping she figures out how to install it! I pay for the pins and mods, she installs and is Chief Mechanic. Good relationship.

Obviously Canada has a better post office than the United States has LOL. My buddy used to work for the Post Office and all he did was bitch and complain about how worthless everybody is that works there.

#247 4 months ago

I brought my buddy his translite at our pinball league last night. I showed it off to the entire group and everyone loved it. He went home and installed it right away. Sent these pics... another happy customer Federico! I have another order for you now as well... hope you got a couple left still.

Lol
Imagine that it was 1991. The time you sent a letter and not even know if it arrived or not.
I remember ordering games for my ps1 from the States and sometimes it took 2 months to arrive! Lol and my country is Europe’s closest country to America
