Still waiting on the Heighway Aus distributor announcement that was going to happen over a month ago.

Its Wayne/Mr.Pinball in Melbourne.

Thanks for that, wonder why Heighway hasn't announced it?


Probably because its Wayne/ Mr pinball in Melbourne

looks remarkably like a PINBALL?  %.%
If it isn't broke, it isn't pinball.

I would of thought Wayne would have sent out an email about this.  I haven't heard anything from him since the email a few days before the expo.

Anyway it's up to him on what he does to promote it.

Heighway haven't mentioned anyone as a distributor, so what makes you think it's Wayne ?

I can't say I'm a fan of those modular cabinets, seems they're losing sight of design aesthetics in an attempt to standardise their production line. Its a clever approach, however, I just don't think they're very 'pretty'

Simulating their playfield in virtual software is a very smart approach.

I hope they do exceptionally well. Pinball needs more manufacturers to push design, creativity and ultimately value to the customer - especially now that the AUD is weakening against the USD. (current market estimates put it at 75c in the short term).

Interesting times ahead for pinball.

   From facebook:
"Just over five years have passed since I started Heighway Pinball Limited in my home garage. Now, the company has grown to be a multinational business with customers spread throughout the globe.
The company has faced many challenges along the way, which has culminated in our first game, Full Throttle, and our current game, Alien Pinball. I always strived to create a modern and relevant quality pinball product, with many exciting new ideas. I believe that we have fulfilled many of the goals I set for this company.
I am extremely proud of the games that we have produced. In particular, Alien Pinball is the result of tireless work, over the last three years, from a team comprising of some of the most talented and passionate pinball people I could have ever have hoped to assemble. ‘Alien’ is personally my favourite movie of all time, closely followed by ‘Aliens’. I could not be happier with the finished product and how it represents both movies.
The time has come for a change at Heighway Pinball. Substantial monies are being pumped immediately into this company by our existing investors to drive this company forward to producing hundreds of games every month within the coming months. These investors have not been actively involved in the running of the business up to this point but they bring a huge amount of pinball experience to the operating of this company. They are also very successful businessmen in their own rights. Their passion for pinball, business acumen and love of the company’s products will drive this company forwards. There are a lot of expectant customers out there who want delivery of this epic game as quickly as possible – and this is a commitment this company will now strive to deliver as soon as is possible.
As of now, I have now left Heighway Pinball and am no longer involved in any way with the company. A new management structure is already in place at the company, that is committed to delivering games to all of its customers and building the company up into becoming an important market player within the coming years. The company is being left in good hands, with the investors bringing a wealth of pinball experience into this company and everyone is committed to delivering customer games as quickly as possible.
I have not left pinball permanently – but am taking a break away from it as fresh finances and ideas drive the company forwards. I will likely still be seen at pinball/trade shows and look forward to meeting many of you again in the future.
 I will no longer be contactable at andrew@heighwaypinball.com and I will not be posting here, any other pinball forums, on Facebook or on Twitter as ‘Heighway Pinball’ from now onwards.
I have met some amazing people over the last five years and would like to thank all of my customers, staff, contractors, investors, distributers and suppliers - who have shared my dream and supported myself and this company over the years. I step away from Heighway Pinball at an exciting time for the company and wish all those associated with the company all of the best for the future.
Andrew Heighway
 Former CEO/Managing Director – Heighway Pinball"
