Quoted from PappyBoyington:

Oh, so the standard does not come with any LCD screen in the backbox? It's just a backglass?

Correct, just the translite artwork is displayed if the 27" backbox LCD option is not purchased.

For me, it is a no brainer on the LCD screen. If you are buying this machine, you HAVE to have the 27" screen! When you see one in person, it looks amazing!! Hell, I went with the PDI glass on my LE and I don't have that on any other pins in my collection. When you are spending this kind of money, what's another $250. Go big or go home baby!!! #131...whohoo!!!

Congrats! I'm so close to ordering...must, wait, until TFP, and, I play, it first...must resist

#11955 2 years ago

Yep I agree, got the get the 27" LCD screen.

#11956 2 years ago

Can't wait 'till TPF! Less than two weeks away!

#11957 2 years ago

I'm different... just getting backglass art on ours. Only upgrade I may try to add is the shaker.

So looking forward to Alien!

#11958 2 years ago
Quoted from NPO:

As a fellow person who has ordered from CT, I will back this with 100% certainty.

I have an order in with CT but don't expect to see mine for many months. The Alien design team doesn't even have their machines yet! I was under the impression that only the 2 on route machines in the US shipped and then the ones that went to the trade show in Italy.

If you want the 27" LCD on future Heighway releases at a guess I'm pretty sure you could add it to a game kit, so it's not like you can't get it down the road, that's one of the biggest advantages of having a swappable system.

I think they are at 10+ out the door now?

I know my produciton light boards arrive either today or Friday. I am guessing that the #s will start to tick up at a quicker rate in the next month or 2?

It gets even better if your looking long term as a Heighway customer, providing Heighway can get game 3 and 4 out and they are desirable themes/games that you want, it makes the upgrades cheaper with each additional game Heighway get out the doors and into your hands.

Wondering if Alien will be at the Allentown Pinfest.... I'm hoping so!

Also curious as to when Andrew will announce the special deal for customer ordering an Alien pin and a FT kit. As much as I have no business spending that potential amount of coin, a good deal might make me dig real deep to find a way!

#11964 2 years ago

I have the perfect themes for Heighway #3 and #4 Robocop based on 1 and 2 like Alien you choose the film with lots of Multi's then Predator same thing choose 1 or 2, I would be a happy boy but also poor as I would have to have them all in their own cabs and all LE versions but what a line up.

#11965 2 years ago

I'm anxious to see the oursler game, keep my mind off the Alien waiting game.

At least for any future movie based licences I think the franchise approach (multiple films) is great, give Heighway more material to use and buyers feel like they are getting two games in one almost with the flexibility and added content the game can be based on.

Robocop 1 & 2 would be great but there is only 1 Predator film

Put my LE on order a couple of weeks ago and headed to London in a couple of days. Andrew was kind enough to extend an invite for a visit to the plant, but why oh why does he have to be 3 hours in the wrong direction?!! lol Regardless of whether or not I can figure out a way to get to their facility, that is some first class treatment of a customer. He doesn't know me at all, and was willing to humor me in his busy day. When you get customer service like that....the actual cost doesn't seem quite as high for some reason.

If our kit shows up at The Sanctum before then (which it should if those shipping boxes are finished!)and cointaker doesn't have one yet to display I'll try and bring ours.

The Robocop reboot, when that was in development hell, was actually one of the potential licenses that was offered to us about four years ago when the company was still in relative infancy and finding its long-term creative feet. It didn't take us twenty seconds to comply; it took us the time to process in the Batman suit and exposed hand to turn it down and run away.

The other one, which actually did get some early development time to explore the potential for an interesting and unique game, was Russell Crowe's Noah; as in 'Noahbody else is going to be touching this one with a barge pole'.

Phew the Robocop reboot was trash! Would love to see you guys tackle the original 2 movies that would be awesome!

Would love to have a row of Heighway pins based the very best 80s & 90s action movies.

Alien 1&2
Die Hard 1&2 (I'll take a trilogy pin)
Robocop 1&2
Predator 1
Terminator 1&2

The Carpenter collection, an amalgamation of:

They Live
Assault on Precinct 13
The Thing
Halloween
Escape from NY
*EDITED* to include Big Trouble in Little China

#11972 2 years ago

You are forgetting Big Trouble in Little China! How could you!

#11975 2 years ago

They could do so much with the They Live lighting and billboards. Imagine something like the no place like home ball save in WOZ!

Ummm... Twitter arranged these posts like this... (not making this up).

What? No "The Fog", "Prince Of Darkness" or "In The Mouth Of Madness"???? If you're doing Carpenter, you better be ready to hit all the great marks!

#11978 2 years ago

Ha, love the avatar mate!
Butler!!! I 'ate you!

#11979 2 years ago

Robocop, Blues Brothers & Terminator 1 are my three favorite movies. Any one of those would be instant purchase!

I didn't realize the pdi glass wasn't included on the LE.

I think they should do The Matrix.

I would like to see Alien LE art package at first before driving myself nuts with respect to the 3rd game title

Yes what is the word on LE artwork, kind of shocking that is still not been shown or approved and games are shipping out?!

You get the standard art with the LE right? So if you like all the features and the idea of an LE jump on board and if the LE art is not to your liking just swap in the SE art.

#11985 2 years ago
Quoted from bemmett:

I think a month or so back Andrew said they were a couple weeks out from the artwork being approved. It's been a while since then. Would be nice to hear an update about the LE and when it will be shown.

Is LE artwork still waiting for approval? Is the artwork approved but now waiting to be shown along side a complete powder coated LE?

#11986 2 years ago

Maybe the LE art will be shown at TPF?

#11987 2 years ago
Quoted from nephasth:

Maybe the LE art will be shown at TPF?

That's what I'm hoping for. It would be great if a full LE reveal occurs at TPF.

#11988 2 years ago

LE art at TPF would be perfect. Ill have to leave my History of Pinball booth for longer than i intended if it does show up

--Jeff

#11989 2 years ago

My guess is it isn't going to be ready for TPF. I just sent a wire transfer for my 27" screen and PDI glass and asked about the LE art status as well. Below is what they told me:

"In regards to the LE artwork we are still in the approval stage at the moment and are waiting on FOX. As soon as we have approval from them we will be proudly displaying the art work included with the LE."

Seems like FOX are the ones that are slowing the process down, not Heighway. Probably not much they can do besides wait for FOX to get off their asses and approve it!

#11990 2 years ago

Predator 2 was a great film and even if you didn't like it I think it would translate well into pinball modes, I have to ask, Why didn't some of you guys like it? I found it to be like Robocop 2, yeah nothing was going to be as good as the original but they didn't ruin the series or anything, I thought it was a great sequel.

Damn, that sucks. It's the only thing keeping me from making my final payment.

I liked it. It was a fun film. Also: Bill Paxton!

Better than Pretators or either of the AvP movies, imo.
