It was great to meet the Highway team and play Alien at TPF this weekend. I think Alien is an incredible overall package. The lights, sounds, callouts, screen, modes, shots, etc...the geometry and shots are different and I think that's great because it will stand out from the Sterns and Bally/Williams games I have.
I got to see the LE side art and the options they are thinking about and they both look awesome. Andrew is really nice and engaging person and I love the way his team communicates and interacts with the community. I think they have a lot of passion for what they're doing and it really shows.
I asked Andrew about the location of the fiber optic on the ramps and it's going to be on the long return lane on the left and the return on the right...on the plastic portion and not the wireform. He said in his talk that these fiber optics will do some things not done in pinball before.
Looking forward to LE #115 and future kits from them.
