    Quoted from shanksfornothin:

    That cracked me up, good one.

    Yeah just trying to lighten the mood a little bit. Figured I would bring it back to being a not for sale thread.

    Ok ill see my way out.

    Quoted from JackG:

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

    This is correct. Just got word my JP Prem's coming. Can finally fill that hole in my temp testing chart.

    Quoted from TheClownpuncher:

    .

    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?

    They won't run it for 3 months. With rush they ran a limited amount of pros for operators, then the les, then a few months later more pros and some premiums. They haven't released the schedule for the others being run yet so we shall see.

    There were rumors GZ would be run in the fall, haven’t heard much on it in a while.

    #2555 35 days ago

    I’m wondering if with all the shuffling and all…

    Is the ”Fall GZ” now moved up to be the July build?

    I spoke with my guy who says he's hoping to hear from Stern next week about the JP Prems shipping out. Which is the batch that mine is supposed to be coming from.

    We haven't heard the 3rd quarter or 4th quarter solid builds yet, so everything after July is subject to change.

    Quoted from Rum-Z:

    I'm feeling you, same thing happened with my DP Premium, ordered exactly a year ago. I didn't make the cut of the latest run, and I've got armor, Cliffies, plastic protectors, a katana handle, and a topper, all just sitting in a dusty pile in my game room. Sucks.

    A lot of it is just luck. An email to a random distributor last Friday and by Saturday night I had a DP Premium in hand.

    Nice, good price or they mark it up?

    #2562 35 days ago

    I've had a depost on JP Prem & Pro (whichever got run first) since September. Hopefully I make this run.

    #2563 35 days ago

    Seems like all this shuffling of build dates (JP specifically) in May is throwing people off their plans

    I figured i had until July to make room for JP, and I’m sure a lot of people had their names in for DP as well

    #2564 35 days ago

    I'll see if this risk was worth taking. Not ready for JP till end of 2023 (space/cost/etc) so had put a deposit in for CoinTaker seeing that they're one of the main ones that has a longer queue. Hoping JP still throughout next year and that I fall within that range.

    Had almost FOMO'd myself into trying to hunt one down this month, but had to keep myself in check. *crosses fingers

    #2565 35 days ago

    I emailed a few dealers today random stuff in stock from multiple manufacturers: Cactus Canyons (Game Room Guys) for example in stock.

    I figured i had until July to make room for JP, and I’m sure a lot of people had their names in for DP as well

    Back in Jan/Feb my plan was to get in on the April run of whichever Pro came first (JP or GZ), play the hell out of it until the DP Pro run which was scheduled for July, sell the game and buy DP. That way for just a net cost of a few hundo, I could finally learn JP or GZ inside and out for tourney play. But then DP and JP switched spots and I wasn't able to pull that off. Got what I wanted in the end, but my master plan was certainly thwarted.

    pardon, but what is "solid builds"

    #2568 35 days ago

    Sorokyl I think JackG just means that Q3 and Q4 are more speculative after the next cornerstone and maybe not based in as much good information as the items earlier in the list.

    #2569 35 days ago
    Quoted from Sorokyl:

    pardon, but what is "solid builds"

    Yeah, that's a little confusing. I mean that Stern hasn't released their complete schedule for 3rd and 4th quarter to the distributors, so we don't know if or when more Godzilla and Rush are being made. This list is speculative after July based on what Stern says at this time. On the TPN podcast, Zach mentioned there might be a second run of the new cornerstone in October, which makes sense. He also mentioned that there is unaccounted for gap in November and December, which could likely be the speculative Kapow Bond release.

    Currently the speculation is this for that time frame:
    Week 1&2 of August: SW Pro and Premium
    Week 3 of August: Cornerstone Pro
    Week 4 of August: Cornerstone LE (#1-500)
    Week 1 of Sept: Cornerstone LE (#501-1000)
    Week 2 of Sept: Cornerstone Premium

    This would leave 2 weeks in Sept for a run on Rush, Godzilla, or who knows?

    Also, the Oct and Nov runs of the home pins, will most likely be on the second Stern line for a week each, and won't interfere with the other pins. There might also be another home pin of one of their titles.

    Quoted from BrewinBombers:

    Sorokyl I think JackG just means that Q3 and Q4 are more speculative after the next cornerstone and maybe not based in as much good information as the items earlier in the list.

    Exactly! Thanks.

    And for the updated What's on the line? This is it, and remember, the line often changes and will most likely change again.

    Quoted from shanksfornothin:

    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!

    Same - I've been waiting for a DP pro since November. I guess nothing for this run and I'm not sure there will be another.

    Maybe I'll get lucky with a GZ pro in the summer or fall.

    #2572 35 days ago

    JackG are the estimates in each month chronological? Ie: in July is JP expected to run before GZ? Or since it’s a Pro only would they run it in one line and GZ (Pro or Prem) on the other?

    Selfish reasons for the question (trying to guess on my own timing) but also find the logistics of all this pretty interesting.

    Yes, those are the best estimates of what will be run in order. But as we saw JP move to July then premiums back to May, it's a crapshoot.

    #2574 35 days ago

    I'm sure Stern is pumping out what they can produce just to stay alive. Whether it's a table, topper, rod, or mod.

    #2575 35 days ago

    man this is disheartening, I thought way more GZ premiums would be rolling out.

    #2576 34 days ago
    Quoted from Cobray:

    man this is disheartening, I thought way more GZ premiums would be rolling out.

    Sounds like the pro’s are on the line right now and the may run of premiums are next….not sure if that’s the last 1/2 of this week or next week, the JP premium run being thrown in messed up the schedule a little I think. I’m right there with you I’m right at the cutoff line with my dist for the may run so I’m keeping my fingers crossed

    #2577 34 days ago

    >>man this is disheartening, I thought way more GZ premiums would be rolling out.
    It's the game with the biggest waiting list everywhere for sure. I don't know exactly how they choose what to produce when they can sell any machine they make. I assume they target a close enough profit margin that that's not an issue. Parts shortages are a thing, so many times it might be "What do we have parts to make". A game that takes an extra node board or more of some hard to get led board or something may get bumped by something that they can make more of.

    Fingers crossed GZ prem gets another run later in the year though (after july)

    I bet they wait to see how many orders change from GZ to the new title, whatever it may be. Then add in more GZ runs if orders hold true. That’s what they did after rush released. Originally GZ was going to be March and august runs, but after rush announced and they didnt have orders change over they added the may/July runs so I think after the new game announcement They’ll re-evaluate. I bet they add in an October and December run

    #2579 34 days ago

    Im going to make an offer up to this thread if anyone is interested. I try to keep an extra of games that come in recently incase i made an error in my counts or something. And with no pinball shows in the area, accessories dont move as quick as i like. and i have a handful of stranger things toppers that id like to see gone. so if your willing to take one of those toppers of my hands ill make the following offers

    Deadpool Pro (6900 msrp) + deadpool inner art (90 msrp) + stranger things topper (650 msrp) so 7640 plus shipping

    Deadpool premium (9000 msrp) + 4 shooter rods for Led Zeppelin, TMNT, Star Wars, Godzilla (msrp for those 650) so 9650 plus shipping

    jp premium sold

    so if you have a stranger things, this can be great, if not, you can sell the topper and end up with your game anyway

    If you want to do that, just message me directly or text/call me at 217-201-2903 as i dont want someone to say they replied to the thread and then someone contacted direct and say they missed out

    and just so you know, the reason im doing this is we prefer not to be in the accesories business, we prefer to do games in volume. so id just like to get some accesories out the door since my nex tshow with a booth might be 6 months

    Blast from the past... "So if y'all would be willing to buy a Popeye or three, you can have one of these nice shiny MK2 machines as well..."

    Kidding, these are good deals here, I'm tempted to grab the DP pro but gotta save the bank for GZ pro.

    Pm sent about jp premium

    #2583 34 days ago

    Just paid for my JP Prem; deposit placed September 2021.

    #2584 34 days ago

    I thought this wasn't a for sale thread?

    #2585 34 days ago

    JP Prem was delivered today. It has a build date of 5/18 and was dropped shipped 5/19.

    #2586 34 days ago

    GZ pros must be rolling out I just looked at Fun and they have one for sale on their website.

    Just got the call today from my local distro that my GZ Prem is going to be ready for pick up next Friday
    I put down a deposit in Feb '22
    ...So there is hope for all you that have a deposit down on a GZ Prem, good luck everyone!

    #2589 34 days ago

    So assuming a 2 day transit to Georgia and a holiday shortened week, that would leave me to believe that GZ premiums are currently on one of the lines?

    Seems like JP premiums finished up last week or early this week, same with any DPs

    #2590 34 days ago

    Just received DP premium built on 5-13-22

    #2596 33 days ago

    If someone is looking for a DP Premium, looks like my local distro got one in that wasn't spoken for, I guess. Sadly, they posted it at 11k here on Pinside even though their website says it is "Currently Out of Stock". Maybe if you just call the number on their website, they'll sell it to you for the price listed there instead of 11k.
