Quoted from kermit24:

How many CE games will be produced? I hope they don’t keep it open ended without a certain number.

Installed mirror blades tonight...look great.

That's the first time a picture of mirror blades wowed me. I might have to buy a set.

Quoted from KingPinGames:

in the times that is it not grabbing and diverting the ball, would you say the ball is traveling at normal speed down the ramp or faster than normal?

Dang, when I first saw you made a post, and before I read it, I got really excited that you were going to say our LE's were in...

#1743 1 year ago
Quoted from txstargazer3:

You're right! I got a call from Chris at lunchtime today. He will be delivering my LE tomorrow!!!

He's bringing mine to Minnesota on Monday, can't wait!!!

#1785 1 year ago
Quoted from Parzival:

Uffff - WONKA fell to 46 on the top 100 in the latest update

Who cares

#1793 1 year ago

Anybody have this problem with their le? I think the insert is in the wrong hole.

#1795 1 year ago
Quoted from Weedlum:

I didn’t have that issue, but it’s an easy fix. The inserts come out with one of those star point screwdrivers and can be put into the correct hole.

Wonderful, thank you. And a big thank you to Chris at Kingpin games for personally delivering my le and helping get it in the house. Great guy!

#1797 1 year ago

Game is playing great. Only issue was the captive ball wasn't registering. Checked the switch, working just fine. What the hell? Oh, I guess I should have removed the packing foam in the trough. Oops, my bad. What a great machine!

#1799 1 year ago
Quoted from KingPinGames:

ha! i did tell you about that foam too. just too excited to play the game.
thanks again!

yes I was. thanks Chris!!!

Quoted from VividPsychosis:

Everyone, please call Jenn or post on the support forum/claim about your issues with the diverter. Right now they do not believe us and say only 1 person has had issues.

6 hours in, no problems...

Quoted from donkadelic:

Considering the movie is just about as German as it gets (soulless, mechanical, boring). And based on a book by a British author, not sure why this matters.
I'm sorry I don't like Wonka as a child serial killer/slave owner. Really insulting to Dahl imo.

Ignore this, don't feed the trolls

#2358 1 year ago
Quoted from donkadelic:

Any opinion I don't like = troll!

Lol cuz a guy who runs a factory where he murders children along with keeping little people as slaves is totally not that at all.
I'm guessing you're dumb cuz you live in Indiana...

Please don't do this in this thread, this is stupid.

Quoted from zaphX:

This is a club thread. Gushing about the game is what it's for. There are plenty of other complaint threads but this one is for owners enjoying their games, right?

ignore him, don't feed the trolls

#2612 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

So this just happened..... also collected 3 golden tickets and saw wonka's office mode. The game is so amazing and is just so much fun to shoot. I just keep hitting the start button over and over[quoted image]

well done

#2776 1 year ago
Quoted from zaphX:

I think 1.25 has a bug with the magnet.
When I shoot the Kid shot empty, it doesn't grab with the magnet, instead dropping it immediately back (and even launching it at times with the tap-tap animation!)
When the diverter puts the ball on the magnet, it sticks just fine.
This appears to be new to 1.25, anyone else?

It's fixed, DL 1.26

#2792 1 year ago

Two months in, I have to say this machine is brilliant. When you hit your shots it feels so good, because when you miss your shots, you're severely punished. It makes my STTNG blush (that's a huge compliment). As of now, I'm only half way thru figuring out the rule set, that also makes my STTNG blush (another big compliment).

As far as the pop bumper drains, yeah it does, quite often. That's pinball guys. My advice is staying away from the pops. It's a very fun challenge.

Quoted from dirtbag66:

"Other account"?!?
What size tinfoil hat are you wearing right now?

Dude, would you and freaky jackass quit trolling this thread, please...

#2875 1 year ago
Quoted from whitey:

Wonka Owner’s , thinking of ordering a CE ? You guys love the game . I’m a huge Lawlor fan, I’ve owned every game he’s done , AFG, TZ ES WW DI are some of my favorites. Should I pull the trigger ?

It's his masterpiece.

Quoted from konghusker:

Those of you that own both Wonka and potc, which one do you like better? I want both, can barely afford one and debating between a huo potc or nib Wonka LE. Thoughts?

Don't discount Dialed In as well. It's every bit as good as those two and you could probably get one at a much cheaper price.

Quoted from steigerpijp:

And still no 2nd ticket ..[quoted image]

Nice score!!!

#3110 1 year ago
Quoted from TonyScoots:

I have finally joined the Club! I ended up going with the LE, fell in love with the CE but budget wasn’t loving it! Very very happy! I absolutely love this pin. I bought it from Chris Meunier from Kingpin Games! Great guy and very friendly and helpful every step of the way.[quoted image]

Looks right at home next to another Lawlor machine...

Quoted from waynetrane:

With the ugly, noisy pop sound on start

Even though I know it's coming I still jump every time

#3285 1 year ago

Nevermind the topper, where do you get a slut machine? That's what I want...

#3307 1 year ago
Quoted from mtp78:

So I got my le sitting next to potc and DI. Wonka seems really dark with lights much I cant follow the ball that well.
The middle and back of the machine is dim. What are you guys using for extra lighting ? I am not a fan of pin stadiums . Anyone ? Thx

To me, it's all part of the design. Deal with it. You can do with your own machines as you want, but I love the challenge.

#3327 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

There really was much to miss lol

I'd still contact your distributer...
