The Scoop

Multimorphic Shares Production Update

  • In an email to customers, Multimorphic founder Gerry Stellenberg notes that they have almost caught-up with backordered playfield modules, and expect to clear that queue in the next few weeks.
  • Cabinet production is slower, however, and they are running 15 weeks behind estimates for P3 systems ordered during the launch of Weird Al’s Museum of Natural Hilarity.
  • Final Resistance is selling very well, eclipsing highs seen for the launch of Weird Al in 2022.
  • However, production on Final Resistance playfields won’t start until late June or July. Existing P3 owners should hope to see their playfields within 6 months from the start of production.
