I don’t know about pinball but I’ve done a lot of retail in my life and have experience with more expensive retail atuff like cars. I can tell you they make more than 500 per machine. A prime example would be a $5 led that they charge 40 bucks for? Not going to count but I assume there is at least 20 of them. 35 bucks profit x 20 leds is more than 500 bucks. Keep in mind this accounts for less than 5% of the machine. Workers cost money lights cost money and space costs money. This is why the machine costs 9k instead of 5k. It’s not the cost of parts it’s all the other things. If jjp isn’t making enough profit to cover the cost of replacement play fields they have serious logistical problems. On top of that there is going to be markup at every single stage. So the parts manufacturer makes money. Jjp puts it together to make money. The distributor makes money.

Our head-turning machines are playable works of art, crafted by artisans and innovators with a nod to the game’s rich history and an eye towards the future. Built to last, these games provide their owners with great fun and value for years to come.

Directly off JJP website. What part of day 1 flaw exibits this motto?

Ya that was a pretty shit statement. In what world in pinball am I ever discouraged to dissassemble anything. Why does he not want you to remove the posts? Oh ya because that is what turns pooling into chipping.

Edit* No mention of PotC either

The really sad part out of all of this is there is several people who have stated no more jjp unless they fix the problem and make current users whole. Some people will be just talk but I'm also confident there is at least 5 who will stand up to the not buying more until current is fixed. 50k in sales (probably a lot more) goes a long way to fixing the problem.

*edit I would in a hearbeat buy another jjp if it was the right theme Harry Potter 100%. Not if my PotC is shit and jjp does nothing to make it whole.

and if you think its only 5 people your delusional. The problem is this issue is exponential. You think there is unlimited buyers of these machine when in reality there is not. You can still buy woz ybr because there is unlimited buyers. You start pissing off enough of your customer base and you are no longer moving enough machines to sustain yourself and distributors are losing money on warehouse space. Projections are a bitch when all of a sudden your distributors one day say they can only do a half order cause business is slow? Microsoft lost over a billion dollars on the xbox 360 rrod fiasco. You konw why Xbox and Microsoft games are still a thing because they took care of their customers.

Nice will have to look those up. At one point I had a mini collection of chips from my visits to Vegas. No idea where they are at now
