Quoted from Mrawesome44:

Not sure what is up with pinball companies using Donkey Kong Banana yellow.

Hard to tell in the photos, but it's sparkly. Probably looks better in person.

#652 48 days ago

Has Stern released Prem and LE models with the same artwork before? Strange. Just the color difference right?

Nice to see everyone excited about wireframes and a ramp the width that occupies half the playfield and makes sure you don't have to put anything in the back of the play field. So its a can't miss shot. Bar.....set...low. They literally cut 1/4 of the playing area give you less space to work with, but hey, whatever floats your boat.

#654 48 days ago

I will be getting a premium in about two years when i I can save up enough money. Lol. I am a big fan of ramps and it has it in spades. I definitely don’t regret getting my TMNT but this game looks like it’s going to be a big seller. Marvel is way more relevant today then TMNT.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Will you accept offers from shitty distributors?

God no! I am still waiting on a LOT of money from the guy I used to buy from. I got TMNT off of JJ at Colorado Game Exchange and I was completely down with their service but it sounds like they are out of LEs for this one.

Quoted from Rob_G:

That was my first reaction too. Not that I think it's ugly, but it's a bit too much. Too bad the LE backglass isn't unique..
Rob

Yeah, I usually try the virtual approach but these things are getting harder and harder to procure. I love the LEs…but don’t care about the limited-ness. I wish it was just a SKU for a “complete” game.

Then get a Premium. It's the same game.

Unless you care about limited-ness.

Hasbro's Thanos Infinity Gauntlet is pretty awesome. We have one and everyone is amazed by it.

Or getting the game 60 days earlier.

Quoted from kermit24:

I kind of wish they would have made the Thanos package exclusive for the LE and had the Premium/Pro share the same art package maybe with some slight variations. I like Thanos but would rather have an art package with all of the Avengers on it for the Premium model. It's kind of like if they would have put the Slimer version on both the GB Premium and LE.

Damn 62 days?

By then there will be another Stern game out!

Too bad it's way too big for the game. I'm sure a proper sized one will be located.

Pretty much. I think TNMT Premiums started arriving recently. Keep the factory going!

#666 48 days ago
Quoted from fooflighter:

It looks like the ball guides have a new design that has raised them up off the playfield and they only make contact at the connection points. I can't tell from all the angles, but it appears that guides digging into the playfield should be a thing of the past. Hope this is correct!

The Pro features video also shows artwork gone around the sling and outlane posts... but ALSO from where the apron contacts the outlanes. This is obviously a reactive move on Stern's part. Hopefully they have the other PF issues figured out.

Also, to be completely nit picky, but the Pro video recycles some of the Prem/LE clips, so at one point you see a metal apron, and when IRON MB is shown, there's clearly 3 wireforms coming back to the flippers, one of which is the Prem/LE Capt. Marvel ramp. They should really ensure what is in the video is actually what you're buying.

Looks like there will be no need for a cliffy around the spinning mech. Happy to see the potential wear area addressed straight from the factory.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

Hawkeye challenge modes with a limited number of flips ball save on, you drop flips until you hit a shot which adds some, but if you drain you lose flips but get the ball back....

Well this mode sounds interesting. If I'm understanding correctly, you can build up a limited number of flips for the Hawkeye mode, just like building up arrows in Hawkeye's quiver. Then you have to make your shots on the playfield. Every flip is an arrow used. It's probably tied into some super-X-way-combo variation of ramp & loop shots.

This is why I really enjoy Keith's coding/scoring ideas. Take something as basic as flipping & turn it into something unique.

#669 48 days ago

I thought JJP might also release some info today and try to steal some of the thunder.

Good one, right?

Once again, well done, Stern.

#670 48 days ago
Quoted from cait001:

The mad man did it. They made a game to rival the wireforms of Baywatch.
wow.
Premium/LE is gonna be HUGE. I can't imagine people are going to look at the layouts and go for Pro if they have the means for Premium.

Definitely going pro if I get one. I’ve seen both games. Haha. Just not a dream theme and if the game blows me away and becomes a keeper I’ll get a used premium way down the road.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

remember beginning in 2008, when in a 3 year period we got a measly 2 new titles from the only remaining pinball manufacturer? and those were 24 and CSI. We'll never get those years back!

Future plans for a premium. Not a fan of the yellow. I need those stern art blades and side armor too!

Quoted from drfrightner:

When Stern did Walking Dead they still hadn't made the transition to full color screens, which is a shame who wouldn't love to get a Ghostbusters with movies clips for example. Their first game with movie clips in full color was Batman 66 I think and WOW if you're a fan of that TV show you'll never sell that game.
I'm pointing out a new trend by Stern, getting a cheaper version of a license and creating their own World. We heard if they did Jaws it would be the same deal their own version of Jaws.. but do we really want that? Many companies have come out with video games based on Jaws where sharks go around eating people, all those games bombed.
What makes Jaws special is the film itself.
Deadpool was made popular by the movie so was Guardians.
Look at all the games in a row now where they licensed something and skipped out on gaining clips from the films... its a trend. Avengers was made popular by the films and I think we want to see the a FILM version of Avengers not a cartoon!
Just my opinion.

You mean like POTC with no movie clips? Or Wonka with video with no sound and sound with no video? Or the rumoured Toy Story with no Tom Hanks and minimal assets?

B66, Star Wars, Munsters, GOTG and Stranger Things would suggest that your theory doesn't stand up to scrutiny.

I don't know about your but when I'm flipping the ball I'm not exactly focused on the screen and since price of these games is a consideration I'd rather there was more ball and flipper action and stuff on the play field with the right callouts than bozo clips from a movie or show that if I want to watch I can put the telly on and watch them.

And as you clearly had forgotten. Avengers was huge in comics and then the video game world long before the movies came out. Jurassic Park was a best selling book long before the movies selling millions of copies. Ready Player One... etc etc.

Quoted from RC_like_the_cola:

It will probably be 3-4 years old and have 10k plays on it. Cool?

#676 48 days ago

stern is just killing it right now. i'm pulling for the other companies to make fresh games and get more variety. but looking at avengers, it has all kinds of new stuff, the ramps looks great, artwork is awesome. etc.. i was thinking to get cactus canyon (if that is indeed the next chicago game), but this game is light years ahead of other games and that. and if i'm a betting man, i'm sure the sounds and animation are going to be top notch, and so is the code (at some point). don't know if mr. keith designs all the layouts himself, but his ideas are fresh and different.

#678 48 days ago

Theme was just ok for me... until the trailer! LE is ordered. Now I need to move one out: Pro Met, LE HOH, or Prem IM? I think IM might be bolted to the floor

#679 48 days ago

Out of room, but after watching that trailer I need it. Dukfciykxduyxuzjhtxzjtzjttz!!!!

#680 48 days ago

At least with Elwin you’re not playing the code lottery. For me it’s Elwin or Sheats from now on. Full. Stop.

Now to find an EHOH.

#681 48 days ago

Never bought NIB before, ordered the premium. How long until stern or somebody will have those art blades up for sale? Like to get them ordered asap.

Personally...I would go for mirror blades over art blades. Art blades just give a "shoebox" feeling to me....anybody else feel that way?

With all of the wireframes and LED lighting, I think this would look great with mirror blades.

Can someone hire Lior to start working on a replacement for the gauntlet? Ugg, looks terrible.
[quoted image]

I just wrote a paragraph and DELETED it. What a turd looking gauntlet. Game looks to be a better shooter that average. If you can live with stern code this could be fun for a few months.

I see what you are saying for sure, but i think the art on side blades of the LE looks like it really matches well with the theme.

#687 48 days ago

Stern does a great job on the LE side blades. And they are high quality too. Does anyone know if the accessory art blades are of the same material?

Keith Elwin is the man!

#692 48 days ago

Been a while since I have bought new, who are the better distributors these days, Trent, JJ, Cointaker? I sent a request for email last night to one I thought was recommended but I haven't seen anything from them yet. They must be swamped, so I will give them the benefit here. I am liking what I see in the trailers, can't wait for the live stream.

Are you in for a Avengers LE? If the game sold out straight away in the USA I think Australia will not be far behind?

I'm really looking forward to a cooler looking shooter rod from the mod community. I mean, the clear Jewel add on is nice, but really similar to my JP Amber except no bug and clear...

Always best to just call then so they can give you quote over the phone.

The wireforms are good but Oktoberfest has crazy wireforms. I think Elwin just makes a really good layout.
