Club member. First JJP pin since WOZ and really looking forward to it!

#452 2 years ago

See those @themodcouple mods?

#454 2 years ago

OMG you are not kidding. I want to buy a Wonka just for these mods!

#455 2 years ago

We are so excited to see and play Wonka Memorial Day weekend at the Rocky Mountain Pinball Showdown. I pray the codes further, the tilt bobs loose, the lines are short and the headphone jack works. Three weeks baby! Although playing the game is more of a formality.. Wonka LE is going between WOZ and The Hobbit unless the CE is just crazy awesome.

#456 2 years ago

The weekend was the German Pinball Championship in Munich. There I had the opportunity to stream the newest pinball from JJP the WillyWonka for over 4 hours. Probably one of the first long-play videos of this pinball machine. Have fun watching and if you liked it, I would be very happy about a follow.

Amazing stream by Karl on his IEPINBALL twitch page: https://www.twitch.tv/videos/425409636

During the stream, he blows it up for 1.4mil.

I really do hope they add more clips and audio from the movie soon. Also hope we hear about production and shipping starting as well.

Quoted from f3honda4me:

I hope so as well. I was told months ago that shipping would start weeks after the reveal which is now a let down. Now it looks like months or longer.

#460 2 years ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

No, they said 60 days after reveal (which was April 13th at MGC), so that puts them at mid-June. They still have a full month left.

Yes, how do you know who told me? I was told basically shipping 2 weeks after was the goal not months. Lets report back in 30 days.

#462 2 years ago

When I was at MGC they said 6 weeks they’d begin shipping. So they have about 2 weeks left to start shipping.

It doesn't really matter what you were told. Official word from JJP at the launch last month was that shipping was 60 days out.

Though I have doubts about the speed of the production ramp given PotC and DI, even if they make that date. Also, it's been difficult to discern that much improvement in code and assets so far. Hopefully that changes soon; thing that worries me more than movie clips and slightly empty modes is the paucity of callouts, sound effects and total lack of variety of music ... as it stands now, aurally it's much less compelling than prior JJP titles.

Give your Wonka world an authentic look. The 3D Chocolate Factory ball lock cover is a drop in mod to make that boring ball lock box Pop! Extremely detailed on ALL sides right up to the white smoke chimneys. Each mod is airbrushed and hand detailed for a perfect fit and finish. All windows and skylights are cut out to let the playfield lighting shine through. The factory is open, get one now!

www.TheModCouplePinball.com

Note: Anyone that placed an order will be contacted tomorrow to see if they wish to add the Factory to save on shipping. Thanks again to all for your support!!

This looks fantastic! You guys really make some nice mods. I'll be in for a few of the Wonka ones!

Based on the playfield issues I'm seeing with pirates (sling posts digging through the clear) I'm starting to get a little leary of my pre-order. What are the odds JJP fixes this before wonka hits the line?

#467 2 years ago

You could call your distributor and have them find out for you. Either that or wait to see what the initial run looks like before making your purchase.

Money says JJP figured out the failed post mold process for some time and this will never happen again. Sometimes you have to make a mistake to create a solution. It happens.

I've been following the Pirates PF thread as I've been ready to buy one, but held off due to all I'm reading. It sounds like the main issue is the clear on the playfield. Although there's issues with some of the posts people are seeing issues in other areas that relates to the clear finish. Hopefully Wonka playfields will not be a part of this issue. My eyes are shifting back to Wonka as Pirates seems too big of a gamble. I tried emailing JJP a few times asking if the latest Pirates run (now in distribution) has the playfield issue rectified and they've been non-responsive.

I believe thats because the primary issue was a very poorly molded post that was virtually a hole punch. Tightened and hammered with the slings it would cut through anything. A smooth post with washer and the problem fades away in my opinion. Those posts were Crazy sharp.

Do you feel the clearcoat finish on the playfield is just fine and not a more concerning long term issue? I could be reading into people's negatively too much and value your opinion. The sling post solution seem like an easy inexpensive fix.

When mine showed chipping I said "huh, that sucks" - covered it with star posts and went back to happily playing.
In my view the joy this game brings far, far outstrips this issue.

It's not like the whole playfield is disintegrating. Just these specific stress areas, easily covered.

I saw a Ghostbusters once that looked like someone took sandpaper to the playfield. If this were doing that, yeah I'd freak out. It's not.

These are just Mirco PF's, IMHO nothing wrong with the clear, just some poorly made posts that "bite" into the PF and were torqued down too hard. Not something that would concern me, but nothing wrong with you being concerned either (to each their own). Hope you can get your answers.

#474 2 years ago

Why would anyone pay to buy a margarin container mod when the game ships with this beatifully detailed factory with smoke stacks?

Strike that.... reverse it!

#475 2 years ago

spoke to my distributor and they said JJP is aware of the posts issue on PotC and have rectified it for products going forward so it won't be a Wonka issue. Also, i'm going to buy that factory mod. beautiful.

Word is the SEs are on the line and production has begun!

Not sure if the first batch is Homeowners. I think its operators and locations. Please correct me if im wrong.

Mr KingPinGames said 100 of the first 150 are going to the publics hands. Wonka bars for everyone!

#480 2 years ago

Fantastic news! Jack and Co are certainly heading in the right direction, and a little birdie told me Jack just flew out to Vegas for the licensing expo which should bode well for jjps future in this business.

#481 2 years ago

A little birdie like Jack posting it on his Facebook page?

#482 2 years ago

First run is 150 SE some Europe some domestic.

That means another few days before we see the "required traditional cartwheel" for shipping.

I was just asked by my distributor to pay the remainder now, with games shipping in 2-4 weeks (but not guaranteed). This is a new policy by JJP to guarantee distributors don't cancel game orders.

curious if anyone else is being asked to pay now upfront before receiving their game?

You always have to pay for your game in full before you receive it, that isn't new. If your order is probably in queue or being built soon, yes I'd imagine you have to pay for it now.

You should have been there for the WOZ and Hobbit price structure wherein the game was paid in full a very long (you have no idea) time ahead of time. I won't speak for any distributors whatsoever but for JJP this pricing payment method (in place since DI) is much better so the customers don't have to have money tied up waiting forever for their game (excluding the deposit of course).

This is the policy set forth by JJP.

I would make final payment when the game is either on the line or is ready to ship....4+ weeks is ridiculous...its a very frustrating process waiting weeks if not months after paying in full for a game...I've seen this movie several times, which is why I'll just wait until distributors have the game in stock ready to ship.

Have you ever wondered what Snozzberries are?

Quoted from Jasontaps:

Have you ever wondered what Snozzberries are?

Actually, a good 16 years BEFORE Wonka, Dahl had already said snozzberries were a sweet, juicy red fruit that grows in orchards in Some Time Never: A Fable for Supermen. In Charlie and the Chocolate Factory, Dalh describes the wallpaper as having pictures of fruit on it. And we've all seen the movie. No penises were among the fruits on the wall. LOL! Dahl may have decided to have some fun with his fans some 15 years AFTER Wonka, but that doesn't mean it was his intent all along.

I will always think of snozberries as boogers
