Did anybody here make it Jack's presentation at the Northwest Pinball and Gameroom show?
Have anything you care to share?

The flying monkey animation is my favorite so far ... hope it makes it into the production machine.

At RGP forum,Someone said JJP was showing the lower left playfield that was released without permission here a couple months ago.Maybe video will surface,I guess the NW show itself tapes some of these seminars.

Well I had the entire layout and shared them with several here at Pinside who had bought the machine. They have all had the integrity to keep them to themselves which says a TON about the membership here. Otherwise we'd have seen them on RGP or somewhere else by now. I know I'd not to be the one posting and getting sued anyway either.

P.S. You are welcome Jack .. thanks for your efforts .. Pinside is behind you all the way. Keep up the good work. It'd be really cool if he could give us an advance exclusive to release with his permission.

Yeah Brokedad,I saw and saved and printed that playfield diagram.I had a few asking me to copy and snail mail it to them,but could not chance being the one that distributed it,knowing Jack and the team did not want that to be widespread.
That would be super if Robin or you/your guy on the inside could get Jack to give this group of pinsiders an exclusive.
I'll leave you to get that handled.Have your people,contact my people.

Dickteases!!! (I'm just kidding, I can wait.) I was able to nab that corner of the playfield pic for the day it was on here. (and I've only shown it to one other person.) I hadn't visited in awhile, and didn't have a WOZ reserved at that time. Now I'm #506 baby.

I like your idea of an exclusive. I think we'll get a nugget out of the show this weekend.

Brokedad, I haven't seen it, but I like the idea of a flying monkey animation too (particularly if tied to some sort of flying monkey on the playfield)! Would love to see it on my machine, #186!

I got an okay to spend the type of cash WOZ will cost but it is so tough to make the decision to get one. I know it will have some breakthrough features but have no idea about design. For that amount I can get just about any other pin I would want. Joe Balcer is the designer and his previous designs hardly put him in the elite of pinball designers. That makes it even tougher to just jump in with both feet. I just wish I knew more about it I guess.

Quoted from The_Dude_Abides:

True, but he is being helped by none other than the brilliant Dennis Nordman, and I am sure that the gameplay with be nothing short of sweet, tasty, and delicious.
