Quoted from Yelobird:

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!

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

Quoted from Greenandwhite:

Any rumors as to when the CE will be shown?

Still 'soon' on seeing the CE.

Latest I've heard on production is: "CEs will likely start getting built in mid/late August!"

Quoted from mjruser:

Hi All,
If you edit the CE list to remove the LE features, then below is just added features on the CE. While I'd love to join the fancy-dancy club of LE owners, I think 3k is just too much. Perhaps a 2k jump like the difference going from SE to LE would have 'felt' more appropriate.
• Candy Red cabinet armor, legs, and wireforms -> LE is BLUE so this is preference not really an added feature.
• Exclusive playfield artwork with sparkle
• Exclusive cabinet artwork and mirrored backglass
• Exclusive apron artwork
• 3D Wonkatania™ lit topper
• Everlasting Gobstopper™ shooter knob
• Red Most Secret Machine™
• Numbered brass CE plaque (1 - 500)
• RadCals
• PinBlades™
• Laser-cut rule card
• Apron plate signed by Jack Guarnieri, Pat Lawlor, and John Youssi
• More surprises!
Can't wait to get one!

You had me at 'Laser-cut rule card'.

While I agree that the cost seems unjustifiable, I've already convinced myself it's the model I want and that's all I needed. In for a CE!

Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Went to Flippers Arcade in Grandy NC today. Only the second opportunity to play the game but it was a good series of games. Loving it and can not wait to receive my LE. Beat out all the current scores![quoted image]

It figures that they would get it 2 weeks after I was there on vacation!

Quoted from dannunz:

I have 8 of these signed posters left over from Pintastic this year. Only 36 were ever made. Don't miss your chance to get one. PM me for details.[quoted image]

PM sent!

Quoted from thanhdlam1985:

I have received an invoice in the mail a couple days ago from pinballs.com for the WWCE. I’m assuming it’s on the line and shipping soon? I just made the full payment yesterday! Hopefully it’ll get here before my birthday (8/28).

I also received a request from Automated. I won't send in the payment until I get to see the CE. Getting to play a prototype got me to buy a WONKA, but I want to see the CE before I pay the balance. Who knows, I may decide to go with an LE or SE! 'Soon' has turned into 'Maybe not soon enough'. JJP could miss out on a few CE sales. If the delay is because they're still working with the license on a topper or ??, then I highly doubt the CEs will be on the line soon.

Quoted from Adipocere:

Overall, not very many of the mods I have seen early on for this game seem like must haves at this point. I hope we will see more options as time passes.

I bought 4 or 5 mods from the ModCouple. I think the factory is my favorite and looks 100x better than the stock one on the pin.

Still waiting for CE info. Isn't it 'soon' already?

Quoted from dirtbag66:

"any pin"? Even second hand machines that cost a quarter of what a brand new Wonka costs? Can't really compare the two. If it was one or two minor issues, I could understand. But these are major concerns here. And they want us to pay $7500-9500 to get on board? No thanks.

Pretty simple really. Don't buy one then. If no one buys, JJP or whichever mfg is putting out a bad product will improve or go out of business.
