Another fun day.
I ordered Stern Heavy Metal.
Great experience with Jerry at P1
Ordered before it was even available on his computer.

Incendium now publishes Heavy Metal. Pin is linked to issue #300 and has a limited run of 300 max units. Each pin comes with a numbered magazine.
Incendium offers limited run backglass art print.
Mine was at the door at 7am today. Small dent on the side of the tube.
Art print has wrinkles from the dent in the tube.
Incendium matched my print number with my build number.
I had to send proof that #15 was destroyed before they would issue another.

They did confirm I am #1 in Canada.
But who the hell got 1-14 ???

I was in before listed, My guess is Incendium took at least 5

Congrats on the purchase!

I would imagine Incendium definitely took the first batch cuz it's their license.... but #1 in canada ain't too shabby ;)

I love the theme aswell,
Just wish it was a re-skin of something more 'top of the line'.

New art print is being held up to assign duty.
Gee, sure wish someone would have properly brokered my made in the US item.
Maybe it's just a retalitory tariff...

Replacement art print arrived today.
Will post a pic when it gets back from being framed.
Incendium states first 100 Pinball units slated for Oct/Nov production.

Update: Incendium now reports that domestic units will be built in Oct

As mine is an export expect Nov before it is available.

I had to take the art print back to the framer. It was not flattened out enough. Picked up some curl in the tube. When seated all I notice is the wavy bottom edge.

I just got my art print back from the framer. Took a while to flatten out.
November,
I inquired to Incendium as to if any pins had shipped yet.
They said that Stern had contacted them that day and that assemblies are complete and headed to the line. Production will begin (in some form) next week.
I would assume that this run will be 100 or up to that depending on sales. Also assume they spread it out over a month.
Hopefully before the end of the month.

Shipping apparently begins next week.
I ordered a custom B 17 shooter rod.
There were a few choices. I went with a pin that was facing left (toward the coin door).

This week,
Incendium claims 100 units have been built and are at the fulfilment center awaiting processing for shipping.
The EU shipping problems are holding up things.

First 100 were built before US thanksgiving. Now they are all stuck at the fulfillment center.
Seems the EU tariff has screwed up all the shipping to North America as well as Europe.
Hello, EU models go over there, NA models go on a truck.

I heard from Incendium today.
They confirmed the unit has shipped from the warehouse to P1AG.
I must assume the unit left the warehouse today if no other date was provided.
Lets hope the paperwork is all in order for customs.

Suspense is killing me...

Since I can't just go mill about the grey zone.
I will hopefully get the call later tuesday and can go fetch it on wed.

May yet be this year.

Damn dollar roller coaster right now.
