This thread was created before the SE+ model was announced. An updated poll is in the owners club thread. This poll was closed February 15th.

Chicago Gaming announced and showcased Cactus Canyon Remake at Pinball Expo 21.

The Limited Edition (LE) and the Special Edition (SE) were announced October 29, 2021.
On November 6, 2021 CGC announced the SE+ edition (SE with the topper).
There is no Classic Edition (as previously available for the MMr, AFMr, and MBr titles) and the topper will not be sold separately.

Details on all three models are on the official web page: https://www.chicago-gaming.com/coinop/cactus-canyon

Confirmed orders require a deposit. Distributors may not request the final balance more than two weeks prior to the game’s ship date. CGC is continuing the matched LE numbers for owners of MMr, AFMr, and MBr but those games will no longer be produced at the beginning of the LE run. (All Limited Editions have been allocated/officially sold out; SE/SE+ models are still available). Of the 1250 Limited Editions, approximately 250 are estimated to go overseas.

Planetary Pinball announced an optional mirrored backglass will be available to all Cactus Canyon Remake buyers through their distributors (limited to one per game). Price is $249.99 + shipping. First orders are expected to ship by the end of March 2022.

Quoted from jfh:

Who else is in and why?

Great game.

So I'll be ready for tech support if needed.

#3 1 year ago

I'm in for an SE - topper on LE looks cool, but I have limited ceiling height in my basement.

All topless in my basement so that's the way we swing.

LTG : )

This will be my first CGC game so that may come in handy.

I’m intrigued by the totally new OS and excited to learn more about the game. I always thought CC was under-rated and regretting not buying one on close out when I had a chance. It’ll be fun to see how they finished the game.

I feel like for the price difference it would be worth it to buy the LE and just store the topper in case you ever move or trade it.

Quoted from jfh:

They are pretty solid out of the box.

MBR had a few Frank mechs that needed a dab of oil on the metal moving parts. And MMR, AFMR, and MBR, had a couple displays that needed the cable reseated and stuck back in.

From my tech support experience.

Quoted from Jj557:

Think you can disable the topper mode in the settings? Alternatively, does the interactivity display on the screen too - rendering the topper a non-necessity?

I have no headspace for the topper either and prefer to just get the LE and hold on to the topper in the scenario that i move in the future. ...or heaven forbid sell the machine.

Quoted from Jj557:

Somebody else can have that LE spot. I'll be happy with an SE. Future $ not a primary factor to me. Enjoyment of the game is. I have enough stuff and don't need to worry about storing a topper that I couldn't use.

SE is cool with me.

Quoted from Zukidog:

Yes, I'm sure it will be in there. It is for the other games' toppers.

I may have misheard, but I think they said there were some differences with the toys as well.

.

I saw the topper can be disabled but don't know about it on the screen. It wasn't there when I played it. I went through most of the settings and didn't see a screen setting. Doesn't mean it's not there, I didn't see it.

#12 1 year ago
Quoted from Jj557:

No big deal. Yes small differences. Makes very little difference to me. I have a classic AFMr and enjoy it a lot. Had a MBr classic enjoyed that too and sold to a close friend. Money saved can go toward beer.

Edit - Additional comments:
Guessing sculpted train track bottom could be added later for the SE or there will be a mod maker that will offer them. Could also add art blades and shaker. Also I'm sure a mod maker will offer a mine cart or other bling for top of the mine. There will be extras that can be added to the SE. Just don't have the room for a topper.. I'm sure I'll enjoy the SE and can add stuff if I want to.

Anyone have an inkling of how long until these start shipping (SE & LE)? I’ve never been so excited to spend even close to this much money.

LE from Flip n Out Pinball

Game Exchange said expect 3-6 months shipping for the LE on their web page (which is now gone so I assume their initial LE allotment is sold).

#16 1 year ago

I’m in on LE. Damned finery right there my good man…

#17 1 year ago

I’ve reached out to a few distributors and so far can’t get an LE. Anybody have a lead?

Never say never ... best to get on the list and if we see that everyone is on 10 different reseller list then things can open up ... contact [email protected]

For anyone that has bought a CGC game before - what is the surcharge for requesting a specific number?

#20 1 year ago

Anyone have any feedback on the new code that played it today?

#21 1 year ago

It looks like PPS has emailed those on their LE list who have guaranteed spots:

CCR LE update:

The game has just been announced at Chicago Expo. If you got this message, you have the chance to buy the CCR LE from us.

We (PPS) need the weekend to get the proper information ready to send out (pricing, features, how to order, etc.), so please be patient and have peace of mind that you are on our “guaranteed to buy” list.

Our next email to you should be early next week (Tues/Wed), at that time you can read about the game details and make your deposit (you may already have some info if you attended Expo).

Deposits will be the usual $1,000 to hold your spot until your game is ready. If you got this message then you will have plenty of time to put your deposit in.

Please do not ask what spot in line you are at this time.

If you are not going to order from us (PPS) please reply back at any time and ask to be removed from this list.

Thank you again!

Quoted from Richard-NBA-SF2:

Anyone have any feedback on the new code that played it today?

I played a couple days ago in a nice quite room. I found it full, meaning I never got through it. It's been a while since I played an original but I went through it pretty quick. Which is the reason I never bought one. Not so with the remake. Personally I loved the way it played and flowed, lots to do.
I'm on the list for an LE.

#23 1 year ago

I am waiting to hear from my dealer if I am in on an LE.

#24 1 year ago

I’m on Sara’s list for an LE. Owned an AFMrLE and loved it. It was the best built pin I’ve ever owned (after they sent me the skill shot fix-Thanks for the support LTG!). And the topper? Best there ever was! I’m very much looking forward to another fantastic playing/looking pin.

Obviously no topper is a necessity; and this one liek aboot as Orange County Choppers as you can get.

I have gotten the other emails from PPS but not this one, that worries me a bit. I had contact months ago from another distributor so we will see I guess.

Quoted from Jj557:

Who said this? I just watched the You Tube stream from Cary Hardy, and I don't see any difference at all in Toys. Start watching around minute 25.

There is just a missing mine cart from the top of the Mine. 100% cosmetic, but everything else appears to move fully. Are you aware of something else?

I'm thinking this might be an SE buy for me as well.

#28 1 year ago

Just put down a LE non refundable deposit. Looks amazing.

#29 1 year ago

I didn’t mention this in my initial post but the prospect of having an an additional version of the game by Lyman, even at extra cost, is what pushed my needle from “maybe an SE sometime” to “want an LE now”.

Lyman did incredible work on Batman and Elvira and I have no doubt he’ll do the same with Cactus Canyon.

#30 1 year ago

Are the SE's eligible for the Lyman code update or is it only the LEs?

#31 1 year ago

Anyone have other feature updates other than what is in the first post?

[I’ll update this list in the original post as more information is received]

#32 1 year ago
Quoted from Methos:

If I heard correctly that will be an additional paid option for either version.

#33 1 year ago
Quoted from jfh:

Special Edition:
Extra Large Color LCD Display with Full Color High Resolution Graphics
Stainless steel trim
Limited Edition:
Extra Large Color LCD Display with Full Color High Resolution Graphics
Wood gun arch
Special LE trim
Shaker Motor included
Interactive topper with Shooting Gallery mini-game

Mine cart on top of mine and railroad tracks for train ramp.

Quoted from Jj557:

Butch walked me through the differences. Just the mining cart on top of the mine from a toy perspective from what he said and that's all I could find.

Edit: also, railroad ties on train track

I had a non-working plasma disc behind the Bride on MBr, took a while for replacement but it did come through. Edwin is a class act.

#37 1 year ago

So if the game already comes with expanded rules, what exactly is Lyman doing? Alternate replacement game rules?

#38 1 year ago

Says topper is LE only…during presentation he said they are undecided on that in terms of it being a possible upgrade for SE.

My MMRRE is has a two year warranty too.

#43 1 year ago

Updated first post with additional feature information

#44 1 year ago

Guess the le trim will b different than the one revealed as it says it's just a basic black and not what was shown .....or maybe a possible option like afmr? Wonder if u can just get the stainless ? Hope some better details get released..

#45 1 year ago

No seeing any details on the expanded finished code. Did they talk about that in detail at all?

It’s the worst Expo presentation I’ve ever seen. The Dialed In reveal will now be remembered as awesome in comparison.

Quoted from epthegeek:

They did work out a deal with me; but how much of what I did they choose to use isn’t up to me.

Quoted from Vino:

They have the ability to. No confirmation on whether they did.

CCC is incredible and I would love to see some of it in CCr, especially the tributes to other Williams games and drunk multiball.
