Why/how did the trim color change?

Does it have fiber optic ramps?

Because it is an Alien LE and It needs to be Green

Fiber was not ready at the time and shipped without per my request.

Thanks for answering. Are you saying it didn't ship with green trim?

#14358 2 years ago

Wow the first LE delivered! I'd like to see more pictures of the game if you get a chance. This is great news indeed.

Scroll back in the thread a page or two
I already attached plenty of pictures

#14360 2 years ago

Are you putting your SE up for sale or planning to keep both the LE and SE?

It does seem strange that Heighway would ship an LE under the radar. I mean with all the heat he's taking to let that ship out with no official word of it?

It's the same game I believe. That he got last week... I think he just power coated it himself?

Why on earth does a company have to make a public announcement every time they do something?

#14363 2 years ago

To be fair, since I've been first to receive a handful of LEs, or even Full Throttle, usually me posting about it is the first news of the games being shipped/delivered.

He was posting pictures 2 weeks ago of an SE. Now they shipped him an LE, supposedly.

Umm gosh I don't know. Seems a big enough deal to be shipping the very first LE doesnt it??

#14366 2 years ago

Join_the_Cirqus, please end the confusion and explain how your game's trim changed color from the time you first posted ten days ago 'till now. Did you have it powder coated? Did Andrew send you replacement armor? Do you have two machines? ...you would end a lot of speculation with a simple answer.

Quoted from Join_The_Cirqus:

Sorry will post more in the AM
Game is amazing!!

I only have an Alien LE
The powdercoating was changed out to Alien Green from Alien Black

Is your cabinet glossy or matte? I was looking through your photos and the earlier ones looked more matte. The new ones looked glossy. Could be the lighting. LE is supposed to be glossy.

Did Heighway send you the replacement armor? Or did you just do it yourself out of your own pocket?

Probably so. Just trying to get clarification on a few things, that's all. I have an excuse though, being up in the mountains and not adjusted to the thin air.

Actions speak louder than words. And it appears the message was received, without the need of a president of a company posting on a ridiculous forum...

Might as well give up asking....it's obvious Circus is playing games with his/her answers and has not put out the full story all along.

The game was shipped out as a Black LE (per my Request) from the factory.

Hope that helps clarify

So you powdercoated it yourself? Why request it black and then coat it green?

I've been very supportive of Heighway in this thread, but I can't help but think this DIY LE approach is a bit odd.

Its like pulling teeth trying to get the story of this SE LE controversy...

Black was ready to go, and I was ready to play. It is simple as that.
Again, my Request

I believe I already answered this question, It says the powder coating was changed out, not the armor.

Quoted from lapean111:

Agreed. . When Stern announces Star Wars, if there hasn't been any movement, my money is moving on over to Stern.

I knew this was going to happen, and I got downvoted for it. Heighway really needs to get moving.

Well my guess (and I hate speculating) is that he ordered his machine with green trim and heighway didn't have the blue or green armor ready. So they sent him what they could, a standard with the backglass of a LE and side inserts. With the promise that the optic ramp lights will be sent at a later date.

You might think that sucks but I'm guessing every single LE preorder guy/girl would swap positions with him now if the only downside is you need to powercoat your game and wait for optics.

I could be totally wrong but none of the lucky owners of an alien are going to say anything negative about Heighway, even if it just that the green powdercoating legs aren't there yet.

#14383 2 years ago

Sad that the same two people have such Negative Energy in this thread.

In that case, I do like the green color of your LE. That's the green I would want on mine.

Obviously this was done to satisfy an impatient buyer ( just send what you got). Sorry fellas, this is not a true LE just because Andrew signs it and writes LE on the box. Looks like LE's are not going to ship in May

#14386 2 years ago

I tend to agree. And the green wouldn't likely be the true LE Pantone. I mean isn't this just a standard, with LE art and a plaque? Wouldn't one be better off just paying for a standard and then adding on the beacons as an add on? For a LE with half the equipment missing, that's some expensive LE art.

Thanks Man!
Green seems to blend in quite nicely with the game...
Not sure how blue would look in the game, but Im sure we will see some soon.

"I mean isn't this just a standard, with LE art and a plaque?"

He didn't even get the plaque.

I have a FTh LE and the plaque sits on the backbox bezel. Nothing on this "Alien LE"

Isn't a Stern LE just a Backglass and Powder coated Armor, a plaque and something signed by Gary?

Plaque and Fiber will come soon, not a big deal to me anyway

#14390 2 years ago

I've been excited about this since the thread was started. My excitement is turning to confusion at this point. I am waiting for a standard that was part of 10 paid over a year ago and nothing told they are waiting on boards etc.. and all of a sudden an LE pops up. I would like to know when this LE was ordered??? This is starting to get a little weird and all the not so flattering posts on here are starting to make me rethink my decisions. Please answer when you ordered I didn't see an answer to that question yet.

"Plaque and Fiber will come soon, not a big deal to me anyway"

Bottom line, LEs are not shipping. But DIY LE kits are available.

#14392 2 years ago

Imagine all the confusion that could be avoided if people didn't insinuade or vaguely describe things. A lot of misunderstanding could be avoided. I don't want to take sides, but sometimes all the vague responses from people makes it a lot easier to be sceptical, and could surely be grounds for conspiracy theories - Which sucks if there's no grounds for it.

Out of pure curiosity.
Did Heighway give you the color to give to the powdercoaters?
Or did you just choose one you wanted and thought would be the most similar to the 'official' colour.
Some people might be looking at this thread and thinking their machine might look through same and it could look pretty different.

#14394 2 years ago

Focus on your breathing, allowing your stomach to rise as you inhale and fall as you exhale. Breathe deeply for about two minutes, until you start to feel comfortable and relaxed. Turn your focus to the toes of your right foot. Notice any sensations you feel while continuing to also focus on your breathing.

Let your first world pinball problems float away.

He lists a date. 5 people kick and scream that they ordered before him.

This was done on purpose. When people start playing games like this, I start to get nervous.............

Andrew has the pictures, he was the first one I sent them to.
If you are getting a Green LE you should probably verify the color variation with Andrew directly.

#14398 2 years ago

That answer to me is the problem. Why have people paid in full and have not gotten a game let alone the 10 that were ordered. Someone comes in late in a time many are asking for refunds to try to keep the excitement alive while others are getting screwed that have paid seems a little off and wrong. Why not take care of the people that have already sent money and let them post pics to keep the excitement alive???

I have been paid in full for a long time

#14400 2 years ago

Starting to seem like a cash grab con unfortunately. Get people excited if they buy now they can get their game but the majority will just join the rest of us with no game then trickle out another one or two to try to get more money
