Once these new gens are fully built up for testing, I'll be playing one of my favourite games; 'A Lie-In'.

Quoted from Aurich:

Those two arrow inserts there say REVIVE, and if they're lit you get a ball save from that side. So if only one is lit you gotta nudge to make sure the ball falls on the right side, because as you noted there are some posts and rubbers there.
I forget how you light them, I'd have to dig into the rules doc.

You light them by having balls locked in the Hypersleep chamber. One ball = one REVIVE lights alternately, two balls = both REVIVES are lit. One ball is ejected from the Hypersleep when the ball in play drains through a lit REVIVE, then the LOCK has to be lit again.

is there a "LETS ROCK" multiball ?

Quoted from Aurich:

Working with David is such a pleasure. Until this game is done and approved I don't like talking about the details, but the work he's done is up to the bar, no question.

It would be a rare day indeed when Thiel doesn't live up to the high bar that he has set based on his own work.

Was anything revealed in August?

Some pictures of the early test machines being built, unsure about what else ?

At this point it's Fox-approved or bust. Little fun stuff has leaked that proves the games are being built I guess, but Heighway can't show anything legit until after approval.

So, this means that they have finished the prototype machines?

We only saw a picture of a prototype in the building fase. If it is all in the hands of Fox now, I guess that the protos are finished?

If that is the case, then that is wonderful news.

So here's what you do. Have Andrew put the info on a private server, then tell Tom Delonge it's the alien (not Alien) research he's been looking for. He's gotta be bored to death anyway. Then, when it's not what he's actually looking for ask very nicely to know what it really was. It's almost too easy.

Not yet but soon, in the final push now.

#7268 3 years ago

Cool. Thanks for letting us know. I suppose we will hear about it when it is ready.

Can't wait

Andrew just sent me a photo of the playfield plastics, still on one sheet, going to be cut tomorrow. I'll likely make some adjustments once I see them installed, but that's a milestone, going to look like a proper machine shortly! (We've had test plastics on the earlier proto, but nothing was really final since there were changes to the CAD.)

Cool Fact:
Was hanging out with some friends at a party in Lake Tahoe for Labor Day and was asked, "Whats the latest with pinball?"
I mentioned a few things about the pinball industry, individual restoration projects and upcoming reveals, but when I mentioned Aliens and Heighway, a girl stopped me in mid-sentenced and said, "I buy my bras from the girl in Aliens."
I kinda laughed it off and didn't think much of it.

Later on, I talked to that same girl and asked her what she meant. She showed me this site on her phone.
https://www.jenettebras.com

I was like "DAMN, GOOD FOR Vasquez!"

Looking forward to seeing the new plastics revealed for the Playfield.

If Lebowski preorders got a rug, maybe Aliens preorders can hope for a little something tucked into the coin box as well ...

Are the standard and le plastics the same?

#7276 3 years ago
Quoted from schwarz:

Are the standard and le plastics the same?

It was suggested that they and several other cosmetic features of the game would be different on the LE (backglass and possibly PF included), but with Andrew saying they wanted to get the LEs out first, I expect that feature may have been cut ...

#7277 3 years ago
Quoted from schwarz:

The only official statement has said that the backglass and side panels would be different.
I dont know where people read that any other art would be different

I think it unlikely that any of the plastics will be and don't recall ever hearing so much as a rumor that the playfield would be.

That said, if they want to be completely awesome, they could ship LE owners their machines first with the standard plastics and then send along LE plastics later whenever they're done. I believe it was already stated that LE buyers would get all the other standard art too anyway. Come on Heighway, be awesome

A facehugger in the coinbox? That sounds dirty!

According to the Heighway site the 35th Anniversary Edition is already coming with "Pinball Goodie Bag, With Magnets, T-Shirts, Posters, Badges + Much More."

I wouldn't be caught complaining if I found an egg, or a facehugger, chest burster, key chain, Aspen Beer koozie, alien head bottle opener, exclusive Heighway T-Shirt made for Alien LE buyers, or even the Alien cookie jar, etc...

That would all fall under the "+ much more" category right?.

Ive been after a can for years if anyone knows where to find one

Last I heard there is still a six-pack of it up for grabs that was left behind on one of the small moons named Acheron, designation LV-426, orbiting the gas giant Calpamos located in the Zeta II Reticuli system, 39 light years from Earth next time you get out that way. Just be prepared, I hear the indigenous population is hostile towards tourists.

I'm sure the goodie bag is low on priority list now, but man, I've been begging for an Alien Barstool for a possible add....completely the ultimate "goodie" in my opinion....TBL had the rug.....barstool for Alien!!!....

I think you all need

loweredExpectations[1] (resized).jpeg

Expect that you're going to get some stickers and whatnot, and if you get more than that you can get pumped.

Fine by me. Who doesn't like stickers? As long as they're the stickers the cool kids would want.

I'll stick all mine on the side of the cabinet save a couple for up around the back glass art but only one on the playfield.

I've been following this thread for quite some time now, and one thing people here DON'T have is low expectations!!!

Sometimes I even pity the Heighway crew for every minor fault this pin may present when launched...

#7287 3 years ago

Just got the email.

Getting ready for the time to make payment #2

Exciting!!!!!

"Come on, cat."

--Jeff

#7288 3 years ago

Got mine as well, "production to start in 2-3 weeks".

#7289 3 years ago

Fox approved?

#7290 3 years ago

not yet but it looks as if they are preparing for it to happen quickly

--Jeff

#7291 3 years ago

Got my email as well

#7292 3 years ago

I really want to throw caution to the wind and place a pre-order, but I need to at least see pics and preferably video so I have a thin veneer of justification. Really hope it comes soon.

#7293 3 years ago
Quoted from paul_8788:

Classic. I usually just run with a primer coat myself, too. Email here as well. Thinking maybe some air freight? Hmmm, patience, patience....

#7294 3 years ago

just got my email today!!! 2-3 weeks for 50 percent deposit and it seems like you can factory pimp the hell outa this pin!!

#7295 3 years ago

Got mine too! I'm excited, but the wife is gonna be pissed since i told her it would probably be closer to xmas

Wonder if the glass option will be pdi or invisiglass...

But if they lowered the LE # to 240 and did 30 super LE's you'd be all in?

#7297 3 years ago

So i wonder what the chances are we will see the LE art before the 50% is due? I was hoping to see that before making my small vs large LCD decision, but i guess its not really a big deal since that can (hopefully) be changed at any point up until shipping.

#7298 3 years ago

This is exciting. Got mine as well. Maybe delivery this year.

#7299 3 years ago

Once production starts how many games are they planning on shipping a month?
