It's taken a few weeks from the time the playfield artwork was approved to have actual production playfields. Between delays with receiving enough inserts to the printing and clear coating and curing of the playfields, they are making their way to our Midwest Campus and to NJ this week.
This past week Jack visited the MC and some vendors including the printing company and the cabinet company. "The good news is that everyone was busy everywhere I went producing parts for us. Everyone is doing an amazing job" Jack said. The level of dedication from a number of vendors is incredible as a number of them have made significant investments in equipment and in people to ramp up for production.
We are also showing the first animation using movie assets. JP is a master and here we are showing a modeled hourglass based on the movie as the timekeeper. In the first clip you were not successful and at the end the movie seems to melt on the bulb of the projector. In the second, you were successful. This is a tiny taste of what to expect on that beautiful Wells Gardner LCD.
Jen found a classic shot of Jack at work in 1975 at C.W. Post University in Glen Cove, NY. Jack wishes he still had a few of those games.
Our good friend and fellow pinhead, Creed / Alter Bridge guitarist Mark Tremonti just issued his first solo single, 'You Waste Your Time,' and it jumped up to No. 10 on the iTunes Rock Singles Chart after only one day of release.
