This pin needs its own club now! Wonka from Jersey Jack has a lot of hype and I’m betting a lot of orders even before official reveal. Who is joining the club? I’ll be at MGC for the live reveal so I’ve got my golden ticket!

The reveal is at MGC in Milwaukee and will be streamed by Buffalo Pinball if you can’t make it. https://www.twitch.tv/buffalopinball/

7pm central time US on Friday April 12.

Also more details and reveal info: https://www.thisweekinpinball.com/this-week-in-pinball-april-8th-2019/ SDTM, Special When Lit, and TWIP will be hosting a news reveal.

#2 1 year ago

I'm most likely in on a le and possibly a ce. I absolutely love my dile and I'm thinking wonka will be even more amazing with the theme integration and video/music/sound asset's . Can't wait to see this beauty

#3 1 year ago

I’m in on an LE, possibly a CE. I need to see where the $3000 is going first. Anyone else going to MGC for reveal? It will be streamed by Buffalo Pinball if you can’t make it. https://www.twitch.tv/buffalopinball/

7pm central time US on Friday April 12.

#4 1 year ago

We have a waiting list started. If you would like to get on the list please send me a message either here (private message) or email (sales@kingpingames.net) with your name and which level you are interested in. At this time we do not have pricing or game specifics, but all will be revealed in 6 days.

The kingpin booth is going to be BUSY. In a good way!

I put my name down for a pre-order to match my POTCCE with Joe @ Pinballstar already. I too am waiting for the final call from LE to CE, but most likely am on the CE route. Listening to Kanaeda review after playing the game at JJP is a great review. Been counting the days since TPF for this release.

I must say choosing a supportive distributor is so important. It’s so much easier to get fast and helpful support from your distributors than sometimes trying to contact the manufacturer directly. kingpingames is a great choice, as is zmeny at Flip N Out pinball!

#9 1 year ago

So, where are the 5 golden tickets and what are the prizes???

#10 1 year ago

I've emailed @pinballstar about it, vaguely, but hopefully...I'm in on an LE WWCF. Just waiting on the ability to send money in...

Great to know this! Over the last year I have purchased my WOO Emerald, MMR and AFMR LE from Mike Dadonna at Automated Services in Milford, Connecticut, a most likable fellow who is very good friends with Jack. His name is another to add to what is a great customer service fraternity here.

Got the email. Just taking interested list folks now and putting them on the email list for our usual email blast going out when info is officially revealed - pics, info, pricing, etc... There should be plenty of games for every distributor and every customer. Nothing else to share until Friday folks. The name of the game hasn’t even been officially announced to my knowledge ! : )-
Shoot us an email if you want in on the game and ordering info we’ll be sending out.

Here’s something interesting...

My first show ever for PinballSTAR was a card show in Hershey with WOZ. Both Butch Patrick / Eddie Munster and Paris Theiman / Mike TeeVee of Willy Wonka were celebrity attendees. Both came over a bunch and played WOZ in our booth. Both thinking I made the game with my bare hands kept nagging about you really should make a (insert child star movie or tv show they starred in 40 years ago here) pinball machine. I swear Paris gave me his phone number and email too as the show ended. Of course they both just wanted the license $. I could have been selling toenail clippers just as well. Both were nice guys and we enjoyed hanging with them. But how crazy is it 6/7 years later both are getting their wish ! I didn’t get a pic of Paris but here’s Butch playing WOZ ! And on a rare standard with the wooden apron to boot ! : )

I'm definitely in, just a few months down the road, as I just got POTC last week. My friend and I got tickets last night, and the 8.5 hour drive will be sooooooo much faster the way there then back home, haha!

#18 1 year ago

My name is down for one

#19 1 year ago

Let me in, Wonka! I’m starving!

I’m already committed to a CE.

Thanks Joe. Sorry, I'm just over the moon stoked for this machine. First pin purchase at all, so I want it all to be right.

#21 1 year ago

In on a group buy of 3 CE's and an LE with mr KingPinGames Christopher. So looking forward to bringing these home and to see the magic JJP created with this title!

#22 1 year ago

Totally in on a CE if I can get my hands on one...

Jeff

#23 1 year ago

Not ordering in until I see and play it in the flesh and there is a defined delivery date.

There is no fear of missing out on jjp machines as they all drop in price and limited edition are never truely limited.

Collectors editions are far too expensive (pirates was ~20k aud) on my side of the planet.

#24 1 year ago

My deposit is in for an LE. This will be my second pin ever.

You’re only getting an LE?

In other news, I may have bought a Wonka T-shirt for Friday.

Some news from Kaneda about Willy Wonka on his latest episode. Today Kaneda mentioned that Keith isn't coding Willy Wonka but rather Joe Katz. It's awesome that Joe Katz is may be the lead on Willy Wonka (not sure if he's working on it or Kaneda's comment meant he's the lead). Joe has done a ton of great work on JJP games including Hobbit and Pirates.

This aligns with Eric's comments at TPF where he said that Keith is working on the Pirates super wizard mode. So Keith is either the lead on the fall JJP game or more likely Ted Estes is (he was last a lead on Dialed In) and Keith is on the first 2020 JJP pin? Keith may very well be working on Pirates for a while longer.

#30 1 year ago

In on "at least" an LE waiting on confirm from Joe at PinballStar but assuming he is likely busy doing the same for others.

I won't chase him down BUT to be honest I've already sent an email AND a PM - so I'm as eager as some of the "others" in this thread for sure!

Very excited about Wonka and prepping the Pinball Loft with some framed posters before game ships!

I'm a huge Mondo poster fan and have a few super nice Batman 66 limited edition prints from Tom Whalen ... so I went on a search for the same for Willie Wonka and found 2 Mondo produced prints - one from Tom Whalen and the other from Laurent Durieux.

Both on the way now!

I figured I was trying to joke that of the four you got the lesser. :p

Also, group buy? Not sure what that means? Discount on pinball machine price?

No special treatment KingPin always takes care of us and is a stand up distributor.

I bought this about a year or so ago ... very very cool and if your in on Wonka, you should be in on the history! I thoroughly enjoyed reading my copy

I’m in for a CE!

#44 1 year ago

It’s gonna be a long week, no doubt. I have followed JJP since WOZ release and hoping #5 is the best pin coming out of NJ yet. Friday can’t come fast enough.

#45 1 year ago

Not making the final call until the reveal but if I pull the trigger I haven't landed on LE or CE so I have a questions for those who have owned both. Exclusivity is the least important factor, so removing that, is there anywhere close to $3000 in additional value in a CE over an LE on a JJP? Or is most of the value assigned to the numbers on the plaque? Thanks!

If you really loved the art of the CE in the POTC game, then there was significant value there. The topper is also one of the coolest I've seen. For me, I liked the regular art just as much so it wasn't worth going to a CE. With Wonka, I'm already in on an LE, and depending on what I see on the CE I may upgrade. I think it comes down to personal preference on that extra $3k. It's tough cuz that $3k is half the cost of the next stern game I buy. It really is a personal decision.
