Classic bait & switch.
Can't wait for a New York based podcast on this topic.

Quoted from bigd1979:

» YouTube video

I can picture Jack saying: "Cut, Print it" after that video take.....

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

And looking at the mech, it has to cost at least $300 - 400?
So, if they sell 2000 games and say $350 for mech, that is $700k saving.

Replacement mechs cost something so don't forget to deduct from the "savings". Also keep in mind if they only sell five hundred or a thousand machines because of this, they become closer to extinct than ever before.

I still don't understand all the hyperbole of releasing a machine name and design six months or more prior to production.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

As Stern survived their “Dark Night” 6 months ago when pinside’s best and brightest declared them finished, so too will JJP.
I wish them both the best.

This is nothing that another Invisiglass sale can't fix....

Quoted from pballjunkie:

I believe those of us who put their faith and money into this product day 1 and then to change the product after 6+ months and two delays in shipping and production deserve something in the form of compensation. Most of us have bought jjp for better or worse before and are return customers. That disc cannot be cheap including led light and 3 independent motors. Come on Jack make this right.

"What size T-shirt do you wear"?

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Here's in my opinion the ideal solution.
One giant disk looks out of place and doesn't appear to represent anything from the movies. 3 smaller disks that could fit within the same playfield cutout would mean no major playfield changes. Heck, this would probably be even better then the original design for customers seeing that the map would still live on through the LCD, 3 spinning disks could represent something entirely different adding yet another layer of depth to the game.
3 of these motors and disks could be used in a triangle configuration where the current disk is. A bracket that would hold all 3 would fill in the entire cutout area which could then be removed for easy serviceability.

It's the TOYS!!!

Maybe JJP should get the louis vuitton licence to compete with the Supreme pin.

Carguement; I see Supreme makes economy cars....

Texas car in Michigan no less...

no i think it was some woman who was just passing through.lol!!

I think it's a city in Alaska or a trim level of GMC trucks.

Quoted from taylor34:

So have they ever said which part of the mech is unreliable? Like does it stop spinning? Or does one ring stop spinning? Like what about it is unreliable? Has anyone ever seen one broke?
Most of the time unreliable stuff is removed because the game can no longer function when it's broke (like if the 3 bank on AFM died or if the balls got stuck on the deadworld disc in JD). This isn't like that though, the game would still be playable even with it not spinning.

Yes.

Quoted from fosaisu:

There's a difference between feeling entitled to a discount -- the down-payments are fully refundable after all -- and thinking a modest discount, say $100 or $250, might have been a sound business decision on JJP's part to convert more pre-orders into sales under the circumstances.

How aboot Dinner for two at Estreia Restaurant in Lakewood (Transportation not included) for each CE or LE. BOGO dinner for an SE.

Quoted from Mike_J:

You couldn't pay me to have dinner in Lakewood. Outside of the minor league stadium and the various office parks (such as where JJP is located), it is a truly terrible place.

No kidding, In a previous job, I had to install data recorders, and then later come back and extract data on buses at the New Jersey Transport bus terminal/garage in Lakewood. Only saving grace was I got to spend the nights in that paradise known as Atlantic City.
