The Pinball Brothers, maker of the Alien and Alien LV pinball machines, have over 40 units produced and boxed up ready to ship to customers in the United States. Unfortunately the company announced a little while ago that shipping of these pins overseas has been delayed and they will not be sent out until Mid-May. The company stated that it will provide updates on the shipping process when it knows more.
Here's the full text of the company's recent post:
Hi pinheads, here’s a little update from our manufacture process. These 40+ boxed-up monsters are waiting to be shipped to the US. Unfortunately transport has been delayed until mid-may. Cheers for all your patience. We are happy to get things rolling even in these adverse times. We’ll keep you posted on progress!
On a related note, the local distributor for Alien, CoinTaker, is bringing the game to Pinfest in Allentown, Pennsylvania on May 6th and 7th. So head on over there if you want to see the game in-person.
