    Quoted from TheClownpuncher:

    At this point I have to wonder when distributors will/should stop taking $1k deposits.
    I get it, they want to ensure the games they order are sold but it seems they can't get near enough to fill the orders/deposits. Seems kind of dirty that they take a deposit on a game that can take up to 2 years to deliver.
    Either quit taking them or at least give the option of a refund after a run is complete to those who didn't receive their game.
    Even car dealers I've talked to have stopped taking deposits on special orders. Last year, they didn't charge a deposit until the car was on the manufacturing line. This year, they don't care because they can sell it for a markup so they don't take any deposit. If you don't want it when it comes in, no biggie to them, they'll sell it.

    Confirmed one is coming from stern, other one I'm #26

    You can't expect them to give up a free 18 month interest free loan !

    Do you hear of stories of people not able to get deposits back? I bet most will return a deposit if you get passed over... heck I bet most will return a deposit as long as the distributor hasn't sent payment.

    This year never ordered (other than alien) from CT never will

    Be very careful - some offer fully refundable if you canx, others are non-refundable. Ask questions before plopping down a grand.

    Quoted from WeirPinball:Be very careful - some offer fully refundable if you canx, others are non-refundable. Ask questions before plopping down a grand.

    Yup that's right...... and I bet once everyone is caught up, the norm will become nonrefundable.

    So again...
    Do you hear of stories of people not able to get deposits back?

    And I'm talking Stern games here... not boutiques, not pre-orders, etc.

    #2512 82 days ago

    Sounds like cointaker oversold big time, sucks for all the people waiting a year + for games from them. I have a friend that ordered a DP Premium from JJ/GEX in mid April and got it this week.

    And I'm saying I've been told before making a preorder deposit it was NOT refundable (on stern games). Have I ever lost out - not yet, but I am careful using that distributor.

    Absolutely no reason a deposit should be non-refundable in this market. Please let us all know which distributor never to use

    Not going to blast a distro - they have come through for me when I needed a game.

    They do not have any DPs available despite what is listed in their promo email. Just FYI.

    So you’re saying if stern quits making a game that you had a deposit on, your distributor has the right to keep your deposit and say “ ope, sorry”?

    Thanks JackG!!

    That looks like a solid end of year schedule, great to see the cornerstone fill out the calendar.
    Very nice

    Now if they would drop those "the pin" times and build more EHOH's.

    #2520 82 days ago

    JP premium invoiced today, order date of 3/9/22.
    GZ premium delivered 4/14, ordered 1/29

    Spend an hour or two calling around the Stern official distro list (focus on the smaller guys), subscribe to their email lists…worth your time

    That’s wild!! I’m new to the hobby, waiting on my first pin. Good to know for next time!

    #2522 82 days ago

    Just got notice from my distributor that my Zilla pro should be shipping from stern tommorow

    Picked up my Deadpool Pro today from my local distributor! What a week for new pins

    #2523 82 days ago

    That’s awesome it’s the first I’ve heard of Godzilla pros going out. That’s what I’m waiting for also.

    Just unboxed yesterday. Dead pool premium..
    Looking for....
    Newer build alien without issues
    Newer build Rick n morty
    Afmrle
    low play 1 owner woz newer light boards
    Or cash on the glass.[quoted image]

    And this is in the “What’s on the line at Stern” thread why exactly??? Don’t waste our time, go make a for sale/trade ad.

    That was such a rude thing to put in this thread. If you want to put it on marketplace, cool do that. But to put it here where a lot of people didn’t make the cut for this last run with no ETA on another run. That’s just salt in a wound and as stated by others already….part of the problem. Like I said go to marketplace with this… do you. Make your money or trade or whatever but don’t do it here….not cool

    Quoted from pinheadpierre:

    ^^ Exactly ^^

    Why am I part of the problem. Bought a Deadpool premium because I owned one in the past and missed it. Set it up and decided I didn't miss it as much as I thought.

    As for posting in this thread... thought others that didn't get one might be interested in mine at msrp. If I wanted to jack the price up I'd make a forsale ad like all the other d×÷kh#$d$.

    Nothing wrong with trying to trade for other ridiculously priced pins with a highly rated and sought after pin.

    For all the downvoters go stick a dick in your mouth and chew on that for awhile. Better yet...find a better distributor.

    #2532 82 days ago

    Gonna be hard to sell/trade when you’ve been banned…

    I see your point and you may be right that someone who missed out would pay you MSRP for your new Deadpool Premium.

    But considering you didn't put "MSRP", or any price for that matter, with your cash on the glass statement and you want to trade for games that all go for considerably more than a NIB MSRP DP, you kind of come across as a scalping douche bag, in the wrong thread.

    Has anyone heard from Automated/pinballs.com regarding a JP premium?

    I know they ghosted me on my replacement playfield. Lol.

    Had to sell my Deadpool pro

    Picked up a premium

    #2539 82 days ago

    If anyone is waiting endlessly on a DP pro I’ll let mine go in Rhode Island for a reasonable price. It’s been on location from 4pm-9pm for the past six months. It’s in nice shape cleaned once weekly and waxed once a month. I’m the second owner. We have too many superhero pins in here. I’m also open to trades. Pm me.

    #2540 82 days ago

    Not liking how this thread is taking a turn into semi-predatory, unofficial for sale ads. Folks here probably look at the marketplace, too. If you have a game to sell, take it to the marketplace. Don’t bring it here! This isn’t a “for sale” thread. Not helpful.

    #2541 82 days ago

    Getting a Deadpool Premium tomorrow. If anyone is interested, it is not for sale.

    #2542 82 days ago

    So,
    What’s on the line at Stern?

    #2543 82 days ago

    Oh my bad I’ll just go F myself then. There’s a lot of people looking for a DP so I figured I’d throw it out there. Nothing predatory about offering up a nice clean softly routed DP for $5k even. I’ll just keep it on location earning. Don’t pm me. Offer revoked.

    …rude. Here I am thinking I’m being helpful to the community.

    People are getting notifications of Godzilla Pro right now, so best guess is that JP Premiums are being boxed up now.

    Looking at this I'm starting to like my theory that they've been stockpiling parts for a new cornerstone since March (when they decided to omit one) I hope it's a good title if that's the case.
    Otherwise, how in the world are they going to run a new game for 3 solid months. Or, is that just filler because nothing else is confirmed for that time frame?

    I’m not here to start a fight, but I thought your post was helpful and in good spirit for the community of this thread and even though I’m not interested in a DP I appreciate you sir!
