    As many of you know, ACDC Premium and LE models made an appearance at last weekend's Texas Pinball Festival. I was lucky enough to snag ACDC LE #2! I know there are already a lot of pics out there of the LEs, but thought I'd share a few more anyway.

    Had a blast at TPF! Hope you guys that played the machine enjoyed it as much as I do!!

    Awesome Craig ! That was really cool of you to let the public play your game ! I guess that is what it takes to get a ultra low number ,good for you.

    Thanks everyone. The low number was definitely a surprise. There were 2 BIB machines at TPF, number 2 and 3. Two LTBR machines numbered 2 and 3. Marco had a Premium with a sign saying it was number 1, but no plaque (they aren't "numbered").

    I love the LTBR color scheme and prefer it (YES I am biased), but the BIB machines looked great too!

    Steve was very approachable and I spoke to him many times during the event. Great guy and super excited about this game.

    Yes, straight from the factory! We were marveling at the simplicity and anticipated effectiveness of the solution. Basically the metal piece ensures the leg edges do not touch the cab. In addition, the decals are cut back away from the legs!

    Great that Stern addressed the problem.

    Was setup for tournament play. Open outlanes, no extra balls, no ballsaver, etc... Super-hard.

    The adjustable post on the outlanes was set to the most "open" position, thus making it more likely to get outlanes drains. Closing it down means moving the post to make the outlane entrance more narrow.

    Thus easier to keep the ball in play.

    That is pretty cool! Guess I'll save the felt pads I bought for another pin...!

    I wonder if Premium has leg protectors. now is a good time to put a strip of mylar on the shooter lane. This will make it stay like new.

    Did you get goodie bag? I mounted the little guitar and bell on the left ramp.

    Did u sleep last night? No I didnt think so. Give us a review when you take a break.

    Heres my Pro high score. 5 ball. Fun and fast as hell. Thanks Steve, Lyman, and the sound guy.

    With all these different AC/DC combos it is going to be hard to choose one. I only just found out that the LED' in the Premium cannot be changed so you better like LED's!

    I need to play a PRO and Premium side by side to make an opinion.

    AV8 do you think this pin will have longer term staying power??

    Extremely fast. I've spent quite some time on the Pro and now the LE. Both are fast, fast, fast and tons of fun. Pro is a little more chaotic around the middle as the stand-ups knock the ball around quicker than the drops do, but both are very hard to control. Expect missed shots to drain on both.

    The LE has the swinging bell... wow... my favorite feature. Worth the price of admission alone. Just the perfect ACDC toy that does crazy fast things with the ball. Very satisfying to hit, even though you know you should avoid the high-risk shot.

    Lower playfield is awesome. I was concerned it might be boring with few shots, but the loops are really tight and the targets are no gimme's either. Getting the ball looping around the the playfield is lots of fun - and fast.

    The lighting effects are amazing even in this early version of the software. The GI can be all red all blue or all white (or combos). The effect is stunning although sparingly used at this point. LEDs look great. No flicker, no ghosting. The train and rocking band just add to the overall package and fill out the space nicely.

    Goodie bag looks the same although I haven't gone through mine yet. I actually did sleep last night, but only because I got no sleep during the pinball festival. Getting too old to stay up till 3 in the morning. lol..

    I'm a 3 ball guy, but I do set replay to extra ball, so you get another on a good game. I broke $100M last night, but not by much. At this point, I'm just pressing the start button and playing whatever random song comes up. I love that its random (or seemingly so), so I can just hit start and launch into a new mode. Still learning and exploring. Love this part of ownership.

    Congrats on the purchase, that's a sweet looking machine.
    I have had my eye on this machine since it was released.
    Would love to get a review on this from a non-owner.
    It looks awesome, but once you shell out in excess of $5,000 you become a little biased towards your purchase.

    Really want to know if the Premium is worth the extra $1,850

    A little?? I'm a lot biased. Don't look to me for critical reviews at this point.

    FWIW, this is the first Stern I've been interested in since FGY.

    I can take a pic tonight...but basically if you look at the outlanes the two top posts are adjustable. In the sterns you will see 3 holes you just remove the post and put it back in the closer notch. In bally/willaims its more like a big channel but again same thing applies. Should be just be a screw & nut.

    Thats starting to make sense. I had no idea there were extra holes. Thanks : )

    It is tough to remove outlane posts but worth it. They have a nut and are threaded into the wood. Can only turn wrench a quarter turn at a time under cannon. Wide open is too extreme. Its like post arent even there.

    Staying power? Yes, Like the band it self! Like GNR. Its an adrenaline rush players machine. Homerun. I play 10 games in a row and dont get bored. Im going to play it now.

    Factory settings need adjusting also. They are set to Hard on most everything. I want it to be hard but not so hard I never see the main features. I just did 1.4 update which reset me.
    1. Adjust Rudeness level to High
    2. Adust ball save to 10-15 sec. Nothing worse then never touching the ball and loosing it.
    3. Adjust Voice Level. Seems too low in factory settings.
    4. I changed Tour Multiball loops from 8 to 6.
    5. Adjust Song requests to change song. As you like. Im at 6.

    Again Mylar your shooter lane now. Cheap insurance. Mine looks factory new still.

    Did anyone ask them about "the face" and why they changed it on the LE version? I think it still says "Angus Face lower playfield" on their website even.

    Thanks, and YES!! That is the placeholder for WOZ #19!! I'm very excited and grateful to the JJP team for the positive impact they've already had on pinball. Great times.
