Game looks cool. The code needs some more fun additions including sound and visual enhancements. The le powder coat blue is bla. Looks the same as dialed in.

I am waiting for the next jjp reveal before I decide. Plus Brian Eddy s game should be coming out soon at stern no rush to make up my mind for me which way I will go.lots of choices this year

Question on pricing. I just called my dist. About a Wonka le.. in the past I have paid 9500 shipped for my potc le. I am told now I have to pay 300 for shipping . Are all you guys paying delivery on top of the 9500 for the game ?

Quoted from waynetrane:

I was not satisfied with the sideart on the market, so i decided to do some Wonka sideboarddecals by myself.
After the first proto-print i needed to edit some elements in size and position.
I'll see on friday how the 2nd print will fit.[quoted image][quoted image]

Looks great, I wish someone could make side blades removable. They always seem to get damaged when raising the playfield. JJP games are usually very tight. Why couldn't the blades be mounted to a template and just rest on edge of playfield. Then you can just slip them out when servicing the game ?

#2880 7 months ago

Talked to my dist. Wonka is back on the line...I asked about the updated clear coating on the newer builds playfields. He tells me there is no difference that he knows of.

Anyone else hearing anything? Looking to order a LE

Just joined the club. Out of the box no issues. First JJP for me like that.
I was tying to get a late production game.. my dist just got these and its August made.

Anyone know if there any updated parts needed ? I am not sure about the playfield issues. It looks good to me. Came with 1.26

Quoted from crobby:

Settings...system settings.... Scroll down a bit to sound


#3267 6 months ago

Why no topper with this game....my potc le had one....anyone find any aftermarket toppers ?

#3287 6 months ago

I have noticed the vuk loading the shooter lane . Not the trough one....is violently ejecting balls....is the fix just to turn the coil strength down ? First few games our of the box it was fine...now its flying put slamming into the metal on the shooter... thx

#3289 6 months ago

Just to be clear Loyd it's not the vuk at the shooter plunger...its the vuk a little further up that loads the shooter. Lane ...is that the same adjustment ?

#3305 6 months ago

So I got my le sitting next to potc and DI. Wonka seems really dark with lights off.so 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

So I just noticed an issue with my decal near flipper game is not even a week old.
Decal is bubbling up and started to crease.
I noticed look bar from factory is very tight..

You think that can cause this ? Do you turn screws in or out to loosen lock bar ?

This is very annoying. I have and played my 30 games on it...one pic is with flash on and other without

Quoted from bigd1979:

Weird.. u sure it wasn't like this when u opened the pin up?

It was not there when game came out of the box, JJP thinks the siderail when installed at the factory was not pushed down before the carriage bolt was tightened . So with the weight of me pushing on the lockbar when playing pushing down the siderail and the decal....I am going to loosen that carriage bolt and try a heat gun and slide it back in place. Really pisses me of but not the end of the world. Butch at JJP tells me wonka is using thicker decals and more durable than pasts games .

Quoted from konghusker:

So are you getting a new decal? If not, I bet you could remove armor, and carefully pull it back and flatten with new adhesive. It would drive me nuts too. Good luck.

Going to try and do it the JJP process first. If it doesn't work out then I will ask for a decal..

#3365 6 months ago

Anyone have an issue with installing the lock bar ? I seem to have to fight with it when installing. The issue isn't latching the lever to lock it. Its just seating it to be flush with the cabinet. I have to wiggle and push harder than you think you would.
