Looking at the uncompressed picture I think it looks pretty darn good. Can't wait to see it fully populated and playing!! Only suggestion I'd have is drop the highlighting around the ships in front of the inserts. That would make it look a little cleaner. Perhaps it wouldn't pop as much but would look better overall IMO.

Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

At least Star Trek looked that way for a reason...it was giving the player a HUD of being Captain Kirk.

This art blows ST out of the water hands down. I really disliked ST PF art no detail at all this has the detail to go with the color scheme.

Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

I play mine all the time.

I've owned ST too. Love the pin hate the PF art. Sorry back on topic

I think that looks pretty sick! Thanks for posting it for us!

#4504 3 years ago
Quoted from spfxted:

Just the thought of the bottom of the game pulsating outward and making that sound is getting me excited!

That could be pretty damn cool with the right lighting effect implemented!

#4549 3 years ago
Quoted from woodworker:

The license SPECIFICALLY doesn't allow for hand drawn art?

No I imagine it is because hand drawn art tends to incorporate a lot of the artist's style that takes some leeway from the typical look of the license. The license holder already has art that the studio wants to represent to movie and it's assets. So I imagine it is much harder to get the okay for hand drawn custom art work for a movie license. Could be totally wrong but that would be my guess.

Quoted from HeighwayPinball:

We are still finalising our USA show plans for the year - but this show is possible.
We hope to announce our show schedule soon

Please don't rule out California Extreme a lot of pinball addicts & potential buyers will be pouring in for that show. If you needed help coordinated things to this event I'd be happy to help in any way I could.

Quoted from jwilson:

So, basically, everyone wants Heighway to come to every single show in the US in 2016.

What makes most sense would be to go to the shows that have a large population of pinheads that buy new pins.

I think it looks great thanks for sharing the photos with us!

My apologies for this question as I'm sure it's been addressed. What is the target date on these shipping out to customers? I'm looking to add a pin and would definitely consider buying Alien just not sure I can hold out that long.

If you wish to discuss other things/issues then go to the appropriate thread or start a new one.

Quoted from Buzz:

Any prices announced yet on shaker and optic ramps?

From what I've heard they are working on price breakdown of factory installed and after shipment items like this. Perhaps within the next month or two hopefully.

Okay haven't been here in a while has there been any update on when these will start shipping? Is it close or is it more realistic to assume 6 months to a year away from starting production?
