    I was wondering if PPS/Chicago Gaming has plans to continue producing MMr and AFMr if they feel that the title still had sufficient demand much like Stern has done over the years making small batches of games (300 to 500 units)?

    Yup! They are alternating games on the line, but if you really want one call or email to ask and make sure. More games are coming though so better hurry!

    Edit: also some distributors may have stock

    Our MMr says #2200 out of 2000. I assume it means they only planned to make 2000, but ended up making more due to demand.

    As a Chicago Gaming distributor I feel fairly confident in telling you that you can rest assured that if there is demand there should be no reason to not rerun existing titles while the new ones are in production... It just happened with MMR in the middle of AFMR... MMR will re-run again in February after a long run of AFMRs. Then sometime after that you should be hearing about #3. And I would suspect at some point after #3 is running yes, you'd see more AFMRs and MMRs in smaller runs as demand dictates.

    PinballSTAR does have 1 last MMR in stock and have a few each of AFRM Classic (CE) and Specials (SE) in stock now as well - come and get 'em !

    It would be silly not to produce something that is in demand if they have the means/ability to do so.

    Yes, sure. The only trick will be timing, what usually happen is supply dries up and then could be some months before a smaller run is done (have to get all parts on hand, and schedule between other runs) and any particular title is slotted in ...

    If pps response doesn't answer the question for you, give cgc_dougs a shout, he is fantastic at getting back to you and answering questions, first rate customer service.

    Hope to scrape together enough cash to get an AFMr standard fresh off the line in 2023 or 2024!

    they just announced they delayed it. It was supposed to be TPF, it will be longer now.
