Just ordered my L.E. (Green )I'm very happy about this purchase fellas, my distributor in Toronto, ON, told me that mid/late September will arrive.


#272 2 years ago

Any pics of the Serialized LE Medallion # fellas?

Thank you!

#274 2 years ago

Thank you LP30!


#279 2 years ago
Quoted from MrSanRamon:

I just refused delivery of S/N 34...shipping damage.

Hard to read to be honest, and I hope that your distributor will get you a replacement soon Robert. My Brother had some issues with his Batman66 L.E. so I understand perfectly what just happened to you.

Quoted from WackyBrakke:

Here is more eye candy AFMr LE with Grey Titans!!!!

That is one bad ass topper.

I'll be..... omg... I almost cried when I saw that pic with the topper ...so beautiful.

Quoted from pocketscience:

At least you're on the same continent. Spare a thought for your European and Australasian cousins..

I humbly accept that you have a valid point right there.


#380 2 years ago

Has anybody tried the Lobster Mod?... is this for AFM(1995) or AFMR?

#388 2 years ago
Quoted from SuperPinball:

AFMrLE #218 reporting for duty.

Excellent SuperPinball, congratulations!

My Brother and me we're waiting for ours too, did you got yours in Mississauga P1/Cineplex? I hope that you did so ours will be delivered soon X 2!


#391 2 years ago
Quoted from SuperPinball:

Yes, I picked it up from Player 1. It was only 1 of 5 that were picked up by Player 1 from Chicago and part of the CGC numbered loyalty program. You are looking at another month for the non numbered program ones. The wait is well worth it. No issues at all right out of the box. Like an original AFM on steroids. Absolutely stunning!!

Thank you SuperPinball!

Gentleman, the wait is over finally... I'm proud to have now in my place my AFMr #255, my Brother lives across the street and he's got #81 (coincidentally he was born in 1981 so very lucky with his number!), since 3pm we're playing and now is 12:15am and I'm still here downstairs enjoying this amazing Pinball fellas! Simply amazing! Me and my Brother bought them blindfolded, we didn't try the game before at all, with our KISS and Batman66 we played before those orders.....(with Star Wars we cancelled our 2 L.E.s orders when we tried that one, good game but not for us honestly).

Both toppers are perfect, keys, no dents, no scratches, no hair cracks... the only issue that I have is that my Launch Ball doesn't light at all, any suggestion fellas please?

#731 2 years ago

A couple of questions.....help please fellas:

1. How can I disable the knocker?
2. It is possible to disable the shaker without the topper action and how please?

Thank you in advance

Paulo JC

#746 2 years ago
Quoted from markp99:

Shaker Strength can be set = Off in the CGC Coils Settings Menu.
Not sure about a Knocker setting, but detaching one of the wires seems like it'd be pretty effective. (?) - @ the connector is a much better option, as noted below!

Quoted from Pin_Guy:

1) There is currently no software control to disable the knocker, you will have to remove its connector.

2) markp99 answered this, its off in the picture below

Thanks a lot fellas!

Today I was playing AFMr in my Brother’s place and when I tried to lower the volume it doesn’t go below “8”....you can go up 9-10-11-12.etc, but when you press the volume down again stops at “8”

Any ideas fellas to something about it please?

Thank you.

Quoted from whthrs166:

The green was my choice and it flashes with the game. Everytime I get atomic blaster it lights and it pulses when you destroy the saucer.

Very nice! On top of that, your L.E. In black looks amazing!

#1032 2 years ago

Quick question please, where can I find how many games have been played in my Attack From Mars R?

Thank you
Paulo JC

#1034 2 years ago
Quoted from LTG:

Go into Diagnostics, go to Book Keeping menu, enter, step through them. Same as a Williams AFM.
LTG : )


#1044 2 years ago
Quoted from whthrs166:

Here is the three way cable I made up that allows for a plug and play for either under cabinet lighting (controlled by the game) or a flashing saucer lighting (controlled by the topper board) the connectors the game uses at the speaker led pods and the topper leds are identical ( 4 pin square . 062) The wire colors and positions are the same as well. I got my connectors from Marco Specialties You should be able to get them from anyone that sells electronic components

Whthrs, where did you got the 2 big saucers that you put besides the topper please?

Thank you

#1046 2 years ago
Quoted from whthrs166:

Those are Trendmasters Mars Attacks movie toys. You can find them on Ebay from time to time. There is one on ebay now item number 112614753091
32 bucks Just know that once you get it you have to take the screws out so you can split the saucer and put in the LED strip. Its pretty easy.

Thank you very much Whthrs, those look so nice besides the topper!


*btw, I just saw your pics and wow! Amazing toys! All of them!

#1057 2 years ago
Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

Getting royally pissed at Chicago Coin and how the treat their customers. I've been waiting over 7 months now for my LE. Dealer keeps telling me Chicago Coin wont give them a ship date. Starting to feel scammed. No promise of delivery date yet.
Is there someone at Chicago Coin to contact to make sure I'm not getting scammed.

My Brother and me, we had to wait around the same 7-8 months like you for both of our L.E.’s Alien Green. We cancelled 2 Star Wars L.E. then ordered AFMr and trust me.....that long wait it is 100% worth it! Our distributor here in Canada told us the same that Mschonbrun just wrote. I got a call from my distributor 3 days before my birthday and was delivered the same day that he called, you will have that call too.


#1070 2 years ago
Quoted from PiperPinball:

I made it. I might make a few more if interested let me know?

Extremely nice Piper, it looks amazing! I’m interested as well! Are you able to print more saucers instead of the Martian?

#1141 2 years ago
Quoted from Damien:

CGC has been awesome! I have had minor issues with my MMR and AFMR, and Llyod and the team we're always super quick to provide support. I'm already saving up for CGC #3!

Did you heard something about CGC #3?... I’m definitely “IN” in whatever they decided to release or re-release!

#1145 2 years ago
Quoted from Quadrat:

I hope #3 will be MBR, but CCR could be #3.

Addams Family too I hope eventually...

#1158 2 years ago
Quoted from SDTMinSTL:

Hi everyone.
Just joined the "club." Awaiting on delivery. Honestly more excited about this than anything I have ever bought, much less a pin.

Do you want to to put “Attack From Mars” on that Dracula spot?... I can help you with that just have to drive a couple of hours to St.Louis from Ontario, but I’ll be glad to...

#1214 2 years ago
Quoted from SDTMinSTL:

My SE showed today! Bah! I'm like a fat kid at Halloween! Hoping everything goes smoothly. Waiting on a buddy to show to help me wrangle it to the "man-child" cave. (Wife coined it)

No need to wait for that guy!... I can go with my Brother and help you first taking out Dracula and then we install your new Attack From mars

Btw, congratulations SDTM!

#1228 2 years ago
Quoted from markp99:

Pics, or it never happened!

Hahahahaha ...I like to see pics too Mark! Lol

Congratulations Dartman! Probably you will be playing till 4am, I did that for around 2 weeks when I got mine almost 3 months ago.... now I play just till midnight


#1259 2 years ago
Quoted from sbmania:

The topper on the LE is unbelievable! If it were sold by an aftermarket vendor, I wouldn't be surprised to see it sell for $600 just by itself. Well done on design and implementation!

A few months ago, someone put up one for sale on eBay for $1,000.... I think that was mentioned here in our forum, I have no idea what happened at the end with that auction

Quoted from whthrs166:

OK Guys How many saucers have guys shot down in the video mode? How many do you have to hit to get extra ball?

19 so far the maximum for me, and I had no idea about the extra ball with certain number

Tonight, tonight

#2166 2 years ago
Quoted from neverahighscore:

Upgraded to Titan rubber, fluorescent green plastic protectors, black flipper bats. Waiting for my Cliffy's!

It looks amazing! Coincidentally I was thinking about doing that upgrade as well, obviously same color as yours!

Thanks for posting!

#2191 2 years ago
Quoted from Damien:

Do the Titans change the feel of the game. Pretty sure I put a pair on my MMR, and immediately took them off because it sort of slowed things down.
Your thoughts?

Good point to think about... thank you Damien.

#2260 2 years ago
Quoted from sirlonzelot:

Is the cow video mode missing?
Everytime the cow is displayed I push the launch button, but there is no „muh“, As it does in the original one

I must say that I didn’t have idea about that when I saw what you wrote, I just played and it is indeed! There’s something that you have to check in your Pin, I pressed the Launch Ball and yes it does have the:-“MOO! “...

#2550 2 years ago

I love my LE green #255/1000... they can have in stock 998* and I don’t mind that at all, I’m grateful with mine every single day. My distributor here in Canada told us that he can’t order no more L.E.’s, I didn’t ask why, we thought that it was sold out.

*My Brother bought another LE in green too #81/1000

#2967 2 years ago
Quoted from mrWol64:

I just joined the AFMR LE club today.... 305 is now in the house, out in the west of Brisbane!! First NIB pin for me,. and it was 1) very exciting and 2) very nerve racking. Getting the Topper connections all done was a little trickier than I thought, as the labelling wasn't as clear as I had expected. No matter though,.. under test it all works,.. game is adjusted to my low skills for high enjoyment factor. First day in and my bloody wife has already beaten me,.. she's more of a natural at this hobby. Now I have to read through the remaining 46 pages of this thread to catch up with all the minor issues and solution ie I have glass vibration, and the power to the topper motor seems to like popping enough to disable it every now and then. I now also have to wait for the flipper adjustment fix to arrive, and do that maintenance. Pic included is my new pin, alongside my Pinbot and BoP,.. which may now see a little less play until I get the desire for some more of that late 80's/early 90's pinball play.

Congratulations and welcome to the club! Nice number the 305 by the way!

#3009 2 years ago
Quoted from mrWol64:

Holy blinking spots in front my eyes BatMan,... the Wife and I managed to enjoy a couple of Strobe Multiball sessions while playing ourselves in to the rules of the game. Whoever dreamed that up is a maniac and a genius!!

I like Strobe MB too. And don’t forget in “Video Mode” that the Launch Button works as a bomb when you have many saucers landing ...

Also, fellas I would like to share with you that 2 days ago in Super Jets I hit 23 with just “1” single shot right there, has anybody hit more than that?

Martians are here, now the Aliens have landed. Both absolutely great games and totally different. Don’t forget for a second how lucky every one of us are to be having this discussion.

That Alien Pinball looks amaing besides AFM

Also, I thank you for your message, that’s very Positive and true!

Quoted from kapsreiter:

built my AFMR Movie Mod today
» YouTube video

Amazing idea to be honest!... In my case I think that I’ll just put saucers alone all the time from all Sci-Fi Films possible to collect, nothing else, just saucers on screen, and again...wow! that’s an amazing idea! and a very nice mod to have!


#4706 2 years ago
Quoted from whitey:

Unboxed an LE , Game Kicks Ass !
To my surprise the game is far better than the MMR I purchased.
The lighting,display,sound I love the game. The topper is a 10!
Looking forward to next remake

Congratulations! What number did you got?.... please post pics or never happened

What do you guys think?

Looks awesome, two thumbs up!...

#4824 2 years ago
Quoted from AlexSMendes:

Thanks brothers! If only shipping costs from Brazil weren't so expensive....

Alex, besides that nice one with the title, are you planning to make more just with the saucers? Maybe different sizes, or combined saucers with green Aliens? How much is the price for the one in the pics that you posted please? My questions are because I like to put shelves besides the games with same original themes, just own 3 games in my home but I haven’t found nothing to put besides my AFM yet and I like your idea a lot!
About the shipping, it will be much cheaper and closer to ship to your neighbor country Colombia instead of Canada, my girlfriend lives there and we see each other every single month. So, if someone else from Canada here in our forum it is interested, I have no problem to bring yours too.

Thank you
