IMG_5731 (resized).jpegIMG_5731 (resized).jpeg

Where is the feature matrix? IMG_5175 (resized).jpegIMG_5175 (resized).jpeg

Is the Collector’s Edition a Limited Edition? Not exactly. Unlike other manufacturers Spooky limits the total number of games produced to a fixed number, regardless of the trim package a customer chooses.

For Looney Tunes a maximum of 888 total games will be produced. It is likely that the majority will be the Collector’s Edition as that is the top tier trim level.

Why only 888 games? Only Spooky knows. But it could have something to do with the fact Bugs loves to beat Elmer at Cwazy Eights.

IMG_5643 (resized).jpegIMG_5643 (resized).jpegIMG_5641 (resized).jpegIMG_5641 (resized).jpeg

In what order are the different models being built? As with Scooby Doo the plan is to build all Collector’s Editions first, followed by the Blood Sucker and Standard Editions.

Is there a special extra included with the Collector’s Edition like Scooby Snacks with Scooby Doo? Yes. A PEZ candy dispenser featuring a random Looney Tunes character.
IMG_5726 (resized).jpegIMG_5726 (resized).jpeg

Who designed the game? Luke Peters and Corwin “Bug” Emery

Who developed the code? Eric Priepke, best known for developing Cactus Canyon Continued and code for Rick and Morty, implements the story and rules designed by Luke Peters

Are there any differences in game play between models? No. Game play is identical between models.

Playfield differences between the models are cosmetic only.

Who did the art package? Brad Duke

IMG_5918 (resized).jpegIMG_5918 (resized).jpeg

Does the Collector’s Edition have a mirrored backglass? No.

Is a shaker motor included? The Collector’s Edition and the Blood Sucker Edition have a factory installed shaker motor.
Does the game have leg protectors? Yes.
Does the game have low reflective glass? No. All models ship with standard tempered playfield glass.

Invisiglass, PDI glass and Voodoo glass are popular choices for low reflective playfield glass.
Does the playfield have protective devices installed? TBD
Is there a full playfield protector? TBD.

(A playfield protector is quickly reversible if you change your mind; far easier than a playfield swap. Some think they are insurance for a possibly irreplaceable investment; others think they change the feel of game play. Standard playfield care (including new pinballs and cleaning on a regular basis) may be enough).

Where can I find official photos and videos? No high resolution shots of the playfield or cabinet are have been released by Spooky Pinball. When/if they become available I’ll post them here. The official trailer and featurette videos are in the next post (thread post #2).

There are some very nice photos in the Pinside gallery.

Some of the best pictures of the playfield so far

Where can I find promotional flyers? IMG_5647 (resized).jpegIMG_5647 (resized).jpeg

Open allTake a left turn at Albuquerque Where can I buy one? Direct from Spooky or from any authorized distributor.
What is the direct print cabinet option? How much is it? Instead of using standard decals the cabinet artwork is printed directly on the wood and clear coated with a glossy finish.

This direct print (“butter”) option adds $1499, due when your game is scheduled to go in production.

Why is it so much? Is it worth the extra money? I’ll let the folks at Spooky answer this one:

“The process for creating a butter cabinet is expensive, period. It's the equivalent of creating three playfields. It also involves that cabinet moving locations four different times. During all that traveling if any of those pieces are scratch or otherwise damaged the process pretty much has to start over.”

“Butter is a pure luxury. It's by far the best cabinet available in pinball, full stop, but it's still just a fancy cabinet. If the game is going to be sandwiched between a lineup, it's probably not worth it. If this is going to be a showcase piece that you really want to pop...then perhaps the upgrade is worth it for you.”

[Spooky ships games with direct print cabinets blanketed for extra protection]

Are there any other factory installed options available? No. To streamline the ordering and production processes the only options are trim packages (models) and the direct print cabinet.

Is there an optional topper with extended game play features like the one available for Scooby Doo? No.

Currently the only topper for Looney Tunes is the one included on the Collector’s Edition.

What are the dimensions/weight of the shipping box? Of the game? Shipping box dimensions 32” W x 32” D x 62” H not including pallet.
The box sits on a cardboard tray that adds about 1” to the width and depth.

When the game is set up:
Without Topper: 29”W x 55” D x 71” H
With Topper: 29”W x 55” D x 82” H
Weight: approximately 290 pounds

How much clearance is needed for the topper? The full height of the Collector’s Edition with the topper installed is 82”.
The Blood Sucker and Standard Editions are each 71” high.

Your game height may vary based on adjustment of rear levelers and pitch. If ceiling clearance is an issue — Take the nut off of each leg leveler and screw the leveler all the way in. Put the nut inside the leg on top of the leveler thread. This should provide about an inch of additional clearance.

Open all ACME factory secrets Is Looney Tunes currently in production? Yes.

Are games built in numerical order? Yes, to the extent practical.

When you order Looney Toons you will be assigned a game number either from Spooky or your distributor. Games are started and build alternates between batches of 50 games ordered direct from Spooky, 50 from distributors. Games with the optional direct print cabinet will take longer because those cabinets are made in batches by an outside vendor.

When will I get my game? This depends on your game number (“logical position in line”), whether you choose the direct print cabinet option and the current rate of game production.

Spooky is currently producing three titles (Scooby Doo, Looney Tunes and its sister title Texas Chainsaw Massacre) ramping up the production rate while maintaining their desired quality control. The goal is to have all games built this year. Your distributor or Spooky should be able to give you a general idea based on your game number.

As of late February they were producing about 16 games a week across the three titles.

Looney Tunes will be my family’s first pinball game. What do I need to know? A pinball machine is not a traditional mass produced product but one with hundreds of components assembled almost entirely by hand so there is always going to be some variation between games. Sometimes parts are jostled during shipping or issues arise during game play. Don’t panic as most will be simple or easy to fix. If you encounter anything you can’t deal with reach out to your distributor or Spooky Pinball directly. Spooky has an unparalleled reputation for customer service and will work with you to quickly resolve any concerns.

Check this FAQ from time to time for common issues and solutions and don’t be shy about asking for help here. Unfortunately there are some trolls in this thread who are here to complain, berate and attack. Ignore them. Most Pinsiders are willing to help, especially if you are new to the hobby.

Be warned though that owning pins can be addictive. Looney Tunes may be your first pin; odds are it won’t be your last

Open allA really big box just showed up! Now what? If you have previously set up a Spooky game or almost any modern pin the process should be similar.

- Unbox and set up the game.
- Remove playfield packing material
- Inspect the playfield and connections
- Wax / wipe down the playfield
- Level the game.
- Install 7 balls, replace playfield glass.
- Move the game into desired location and recheck level.

Here is a terrific unboxing video.

Unboxing the game Check the Tip N Tell (add detail).
Cut the outside straps.
Lift the cardboard box up and off the game.
Cut the inside straps securing the game to the pallet. DO NOT cut the wrap securing the backbox!
Remove the leg carton.

Locate coin door and backbox keys Two keys for the coin door are <where?>
Two backbox keys are hung from a small hook inside the door on on a side of a coin mech.
Keep a pair together away from the game.

If you are prone to losing keys replace the lock with a 7/8” Keyless Thumb lock.

Set up the game Sit game upright on bottom pads.
Attach front legs using leg bolts (in the mounting brackets). Place a felt protector at the top of leg between the leg and the cabinet and screw the leg on until it is tight (do not over tighten).
Attach/adjust levelers in to bottom of legs.
Support back of game on a stool and attach rear legs (also with felt protectors).
Carefully cut the shrink wrap holding the backbox to the body.
strap and raise backbox into position making sure interconnecting cables are not kinked or pinched.
Raise the backbox upright and latch it into position (latch on back).
Remove padding from the playfield glass.
Remove plastic protective film from the topper.

[Delete this section if LT does not use wing nuts]
Unlock the backbox. Lift translite/insert panel from the bottom, slide it out and lay it down on the playfield glass.
Unplug the insert panel cable from the controller PCB and set backglass/insert panel aside. (SPOOKY?)
Lift the speaker panel so the top notches clear the top pins and lower toward the playfield glass.
Install wing-head mounting bolt and washer in each hole into threaded fasteners in the cabinet.
Replace the speaker panel and translite/insert panel.
Lock the backbox.
[End backbox support]

Attach the power cord and secure it with the power cord plate.

Remove protective packing material <Is there any for Looney Toons?>

Inspect the playfield and electronic connections Remove the lockbar, slide the playfield glass out and raise the playfield. Install the tilt bob if desired.

Look for loose screws or parts that have become dislodged or stuck to the cabinet speaker magnet and reattach as needed. Check that connectors on the main circuit board are fully pushed in so the pins are not visible.

Lower the playfield and inspect it.

Remove the lower speaker panel from the backbox. Check that cables/connectors are fully seated on the CPU/driver boards. Most connectors are keyed so they can only be plugged in one way. Never force a cable or connector. If any cable is completely disconnected refer to the manual. If you are unsure of any connection post a picture/question in this topic.

Level the game and adjust tilt bob Adjust foot levelers to ensure game is level from side to side and pitch is at 7.0 degrees. Tighten leveler nuts when done.

For the most accurate reading take the glass off and place a level or inclinometer directly on the playfield.

Test lights, switches and servos Take the playfield glass off, enter the Service Menu Menu. Check individual switches using a pinball and test lighting, coils and game features to make sure all are working correctly. See TBD for details on running individual tests.

[This step is not required but recommended to ensure everything is working as expected after transport]
Wipe/Wax the playfield Using a microfiber cloth gently clean the playfield and playfield parts to remove any debris and/or dust that may be left from manufacturing or shipping. If desired, apply a light coat of quality Carnuba wax to the playfield with a chamois or microfiber cloth. Buff off any excess wax.

What type of pinballs should I use? How many? The game uses 7 pinballs.
There is a magnet in Looney Toons

Replace them every 100 games or whenever they show signs of wear to avoid playfield damage. Mirror finish pinballs look terrific. For a softer satin look use carbon steel pinballs.

Final steps - Move the game to desired location
- Check game level and readjust if needed
- Make sure 7 pinballs are loaded
- Turn on the game. (Power switch is underneath the game, near the right front leg)

Open allGame play What is the second right flipper button used for? It cycles the current ACME tool (activated by the action button on the lockbar).

What cartoons are featured in the game? Over twenty classics from the Golden Age of Looney Tunes cartoons will be featured in the game including many fan favorites:

“Rabbit Transit"
"What's Opera Doc"
"Rabbit Seasoning"
“Rabbit of Seville"
“Duck Dodgers in the 24th 1/2 Century"
"Fast and Furry-ous"
"Bully for Bugs"
"Duck Amuck"
"Robin Hood Daffy"
“Long-Haired Hare”
“Devil May Hare”
“Bully for Bugs”

along with Spooky favorites "Hyde and Go Tweet," "Scaredy Cat", and "Hair Raising Hare".

There are also some infomercial style commercials for various ACME products.

Where can I find the rules? Go to the nearest Waffle House, have breakfast and then ask for Marvin. He will use his Ray Gun to extract them from the brain of Luke Peters. Write them down and send them to me so I can update this answer. (Do not skip breakfast as it is the most important meal of the day).

How does the game play? Fast and Furry-ous

Are there any flipper codes or Easter Eggs? Could be.

Open allGame and Feature Adjustments My display doesn’t look as good as I expected There isn’t a lot of experience with Looney Tunes yet but many Scooby Doo owners reported good results by slightly increasing brightness and decreasing contrast. Some also updated their LCD to an higher quality IPS screen and have been pleased with the results. I’m open to considering that since the cartoons are such an integral part of the game though I’m going to try and get the best out of the stock monitor first.

Try adjusting the default brightness and contrast settings.

One owner used these settings to improve his experience:
Brightness: 30
Contrast: 70
Gamma: On

[This will be updated as more people post their experience and screen upgrade options are confirmed]

Open allGame Support Where can I get the latest code? Download the Looney Tunes code from the Spooky Pinball Game Support page.
How do I update the game? Put the code file from the game support page in to the root folder of a USB Flash Drive. Plug it into the USB slot <where>, navigate to “Utilities > Update Code” and follow the onscreen instructions to update your game.

Loved the orange powdercoat and playfield in the reveal, knew the lighting from Spooky would be fantastic after seeing Scooby, but wasn't quite sure I was completely sold on the side art.

It may be longer than that. If they are producing 12 per week. Thats between 3 games right now. Even if LT is half of that output, that's currently 6 per week and up to 10 per week if they ramp up to 20 per week. So that would be 120 games made from now till July. Depends on how well Scooby is still selling and TCM sells. I know from some distributers it sounds like LT is about 2 to 1 on TCM sales.

Depends on how well Scooby is still selling and TCM sells. I know from some distributers it sounds like LT is about 2 to 1 on TCM sales.

I said later July/August for #206. Pretty much what my distro said was within the realm as well. That's 22-26 weeks. Not sure about Scooby sales, but figured they get to a avg point of 6LT over 10wks, and then as Bug says ramp it up to 20 games a week. At that point, Scooby probably won't be much of that and LT may see as many as 12 games a week avg if sales on it continue outpacing the other two. 12x12 weeks plus the initial 6x10 weeks... and we land at 22 weeks...July 22. I wouldn't call it an expectation as much as simple optimistic hope.

Given I don't know how many they'll build any given week of any given title, I added a 4 weeks to my 22 weeks best case of how it may occur.

Educated guess with available info so I know to kick my ass in gear and have the money ready. I have no idea how it will all go down. Or at what rate Spooky plans to produce each title. Or what hiccups transpire along the way. Nor do I really care. Earlier delivery will happily be accepted. A later one will also be fine. As long as I see games going out the door, and the end product shows some love and attention as good as they're preaching and currently showing, I'm all good.

Quoted from RebelGuitars:

I need to do some rearranging to get it over with my other games, but it’s up and playing great. I’ll give more feedback once I get more games on it.

Sad to see this thread started by the all knowing jfh

Although he would know the most about Looney Tunes...

Quoted from Jagrmaister:

I said later July/August for #206. Pretty much what my distro said was within the realm as well. That's 22-26 weeks. Not sure about Scooby sales, but figured they get to a avg point of 6LT over 10wks, and then as Bug says ramp it up to 20 games a week. At that point, Scooby probably won't be much of that and LT may see as many as 12 games a week avg if sales on it continue outpacing the other two. 12x12 weeks plus the initial 6x10 weeks... and we land at 22 weeks...July 22. I wouldn't call it an expectation as much as simple optimistic hope.

Well said!! I can and will wait. Replenish funds along way. Be a nice fall addition if timing works out and I’m
Good with that

That game IS quite exquisite in those pictures. Maybe it’s the colors, maybe it’s the layout but it could also very well be all those beautiful guitars that make it stand out. Hope this means I won’t have to go buy 30 of those to put on the wall behind my machine when she comes. Not that I would mind…

They’re all for sale.

This is great. Agree 100%. Too many obsess with “when am I getting my game?” or “why aren’t they building them faster?” without understanding the complexities of the manufacturing process (though I’ve noticed this is less prevalent with Spooky games).

I love seeing others get their games - especially first time buyers - and don’t mind waiting my turn. Gives me something to look forward to. I trust Spooky to make the wait worthwhile.

I'd rather get a game that's right and good from the get go, than have issues in the first week of ownership and be bummed, esp if the machine is down. It's not worth doing if it's not worth doing right.

I think that the obsessors (and I suppose I should include myself in that category) will find that, when they get their game and it is far and away better in quality control than any others, they will be much happier to wait and be patient the next time around.

Sorry if this breaks rules but going to play this at TPF. Due to price, theme and what I see of gameplay so far I'm considering this as my first pin to acquire in about 3 years. If I really like it at TPF the price compared to most NIB and other things mentioned and I hope to be an owner. Frankly been excited about this one every since announced.

31? Wow!

I guess I should elaborate, because I am not sure how this works. Ive only purchased games in stock. I paid in full recently, and they just sent that. So could be showing that I am paid in full or that they have shipping confirmation. We will see!

I think there will be quite a few people doing the same thing and predict there will be a spike in orders after TPF. I’m considering going just to see the difference between Looney Tunes with a standard cabinet and one with a butter cabinet.
