Anybody know or heard if we're getting any freebies with the new AC/DC Premiums that are coming up next month? I know the pro models got the swinging bell upgrade, all LED, and some speaker graphics. It would be nice to have some lite up lightning bolts or somethin. Thanks.

I'm waiting to see the cab artwork

#3 1 year ago

I'm thinkin the cab artwork will be the same since the pros were the same.

#4 1 year ago

I'm anxiously awaiting pics and the details to see if anything has changed, too!

#5 1 year ago

Is nobody bothered by the omission of one band member on the playfield/backglass?

Not really, since he's not in the band anymore. I'm just hoping they don't add Axle in there!
I hope they put out the Luci version again.

I'm hoping Luci-ish.

#8 1 year ago

I guess the problem I have with it is all of the music and images on the game were when Phil was in the band. To remove him on the reissue because he's not in the band doesn't make sense. I guess it goes back to the license holders call the shots.

#9 1 year ago

Come on Stern, release some pics and info already!!!!

#10 1 year ago

They said they would never do Luci again..... that being said they are going to do Lucy.

#11 1 year ago

Haha yeah it's Luci. I saw a distro advertise it on Facebook a few weeks ago for maybe a half hour and then it was promptly removed. If Stern ever decides to address my SW ghosting I'd love to pick one up.

You're saying the premium vaults are going to be Lucys? I hope not cause I got kids.

Luci?

For reals?

That is a tough call.

Luci is sweet. But damn, it needs a $400 color DMD. Even then it's color DMD dots vs native LCD animations. It's a tough pill to swallow when Aerosmith is $5200 cash ($5700 online).

Anyone know if the rumors of Elvira & Pulp Fiction are legit?

Elvira isn't a rumor. It's happening.

Not sure on Pulp Fiction.

#15 1 year ago

I'm in on a Premium. Would be cool if it was Luci, but I'm not gonna hold my breath. Not sure how my wife would like that, either...

#16 1 year ago

If it's going to have a cartoon sexy girl on it, I much prefer the Aurich style. That being said, I prefer the original premium can over Luci.

#17 1 year ago

I was recently told by somebody I trust no Luci...

#18 1 year ago

I can't imagine they would only do Luci's, maybe they will do some but Stern would do regular premiums, right? I'm sure there are people that would not want that art style, I know I wouldn't.

I wonder about this Pulp Fiction talk it could be a dream theme for me. The style, the music, the callouts, it could be so fucking good. It also could be a disaster, if they do it and it doesn't have the Uma poster for translite I will never forgive them.

#19 1 year ago

Heard last night that AC/DC Premium VE are on the line now and will start shipping as soon as next week.

My heaaaaarrrrrt is on fiiiiire... for Elvira!

I'm gonna buy that if its like my Aerosmith (decent launch code, glossy PF, magnificent art, cool features @ Pro pricing & an LCD).

Same for Pulp Fiction.

I dont think I can accept DMD games moving FW. But, maybe ACDCve Premium will surprise me?

I heard the same - and no Luci - damn...

#22 1 year ago

Ah dang it.

#23 1 year ago

Two major changes:

One is that the playfield window is removable:

The other is that the woofer is only 8":

#24 1 year ago

Edit, lollipop rails are included despite technical drawing

#25 1 year ago

Anyone have a shipped price quote on the Premium? And a dealer they could recommend? I'm looking to put in an order once they become available.

#26 1 year ago

Go with JJ at GameEx

#27 1 year ago

removable lower play field is an improvement. Elimination of the lollipop rails is a cost saving measure (not that much of a savings), and frankly is stupid. The smaller sub woofer isn't that big a deal as I personally think all these music games deserve an external sub anyways. Does anyone know if the trim is red?

#28 1 year ago

The trim is red, but I'm going to be pissed if it doesn't include the lollipop rails!

#29 1 year ago

Thanks...I know its a stupid decision if thats truly the case...

#30 1 year ago
Quoted from rkelley17:

Technical picture from the manual doesn't show them

#31 1 year ago

Seriously, how cheap can you get? You go to the trouble to paint regular rails gloss red but can't include the lollipop rails? Not cool, especially since the price just keeps going up!!!

#32 1 year ago

I don't think I would use the art in a manual to determine the rails, probably just didn't bother with different art for the manual. Manuals are notoriously inaccurate in pinball.

#33 1 year ago

True. Although, the manual for the original shows the correct rails. Based on Sterns recent premiums, wouldn't be shocking.

#34 1 year ago

My distributor called Stern...lollipops are still included!!!

#35 1 year ago

awesome

That's pretty sweet! Did you get an idea of a street price?

#37 1 year ago
Quoted from PtownPin:

Is it really? I very much prefer to integrated insert. I can't think of any time I played a Congo or CFTBL and thought it was great it was a removable insert as the ball caught an edge and moved. I've yet to see anyone have issues with their AC/DC insert excluding the early on cloudy windows as well so it's not like that is a problem.

An insert of that size not being built into the PF is not what I personally consider an improvement. I may be in the minority though as I seem to be more often than not these days on pinside.

One thing that is said to be different but not called out is the drummer will be stationary in the dancing band portion. Nothing major bot not an improvement either.

#38 1 year ago

I think the pf apron is listed as red now too in the new manual.

10
#39 1 year ago

Stern prolly made the window removable because they knew it would ghost

#40 1 year ago

It gets rid of a huge headache area... will certainly make cleaning easier!

#41 1 year ago

I was quoted $6900 shipped, sounds pretty good to me! Can anybody beat?

#42 1 year ago

Yeah I was quoted 6800 shipped

#43 1 year ago

good deals for sure. 7200

#44 1 year ago

Just placed an order, shipping in a couple weeks!!! Met my distro in the middle for $6850 shipped. So excited!!!

#45 1 year ago

God ...... I can remember when I paid 6500 for my LTBR. Those were they days !!!

#46 1 year ago

...and Tron LE was $5500 back in the day ..... sigh

Originally it was up to the band members.
Bon Scott isn't on the pin either but you can hear him in the music tracks.

I couldn't disagree more assuming of course its done correctly. Having the ability to clean or swap out with ease it a big plus in my book.

Well I guess that means Bon Scott didn't want in

So with the removable lower PF window, the steel ball wont get kincked on the torx screws
