Quoted from RobbyIRL5:

This game looks awesome. I have no room to put it, but I think I'm in for one of these! Re: this designer, I've got a JP Premium, and I can respect the fact that it is hard, I've bricked more shots in that game than Shaq has free throws. But I can get around that, it's on my skill (or lack thereof). What drives me nuts about JP are the out lanes. Even if adjusted to "easy", if the ball is going that way, the nudging that I know how to do doesn't really work, it's like your strategy has to be to not let it go there. I'm wondering if the setup is the same on Avengers (the in lane post much higher, creating out lane drains that would make me want to smash the Invisiglass). I don't really recall that in Iron Maiden but don't own it so can't be for sure. Any ideas or any good photos/videos with a closeup of that configuration?

JP is definitely a game that if you are missing shots will drain. No way around that. Consider that it was designed by one of the greatest pinball players ever. KME needed a challenge, so I can't imagine any of his designs will be easy. That's a good thing. Easy is boring.

Thanks. Not sure about the yellow powderercoat, might be in for a Prem. need to see hoe crazy the Cn price is is.

#903 82 days ago

This looks pretty promising! Originally my plan was to buy a Turtles next, but my wife is really into Avengers and likes the look of this game so it may be next . Plus it would be cool to own all of Elwin's games.

#904 82 days ago

Here is where it began, (after a 2 issue tbp thanos solo called "Infinity Quest" where he gathers the stones.)

Quoted from Tsskinne:

Weren't those things that Jpop just stole from older games though?
[quoted image]

yes, but since he used them on 2 of his games, it works. And The Jpop just sounds good.

Quoted from Scribbles:

Anyone have a non instagram link to this teaser? Some of us old farts dont do "insta"

Quoted from chubtoad13:

This link worked for me without an instagram

I couldn't get into the Dead Flip post either. Is the 2nd link the same thing Dead Flip posted? The Black Panther animation? If so, is that really for the pinball machine? Seems more like a tribute by Marvel for Chadwick Boseman.

No, the Deadflip link shows a snipet of actual game animation...

#908 82 days ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Prepare to be disappointed. This game is going to be just like JP and Maiden imo.
Taking three drop targets and adding that much weight to them is awesome. Can’t wait to see more.
There will be plenty of stuff close to the start button like his other games I’m sure.

not close to bored yet on my Iron Maiden premium. Tommy might be leaving in due time after its 12 year stay to make room for this beast in premium form.

#909 82 days ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

looks great reminds me of ACNC

Yep...I liked the animation style of ACNC...if they use that style, awesome! I would much rather have that than the 3d rendered "style" of TMNT. I just hope AIQ doesn't get hindered like ACNC (and JP to be honest) by too tight of shots!

#910 82 days ago

I'm really not sure why people are so worried about the post under the spinning target. It's clearly much thicker than a a typical playfield post, and those take direct hits from balls all the time. Sure the target post is longer, but the strength goes up with the square of the diameter, so if it's twice as thick as a typical post it will be 4 times as strong. There are plenty of much thinner screws and posts in games that never have issues.

#911 82 days ago
Quoted from pinmister:

The Dinosaur in JP looks like it was bought at the dollar store. I quickly looked over it as I was too busy playing the fantastic game with an epic layout. I even left my cheap plastic Gomez truck because it is depicted throughout the theme. I do think the glove needs some help and modders will be all over it.

This is a good looking game no doubt, but yeah, the yellow trim and glove is definitely a miss. Also looking at the layout it looks pretty fun but not as good as JP. The T-Rex centeral toy just pulls it all together on that game. Imo, this game needed a toy like that to compete with JP.

Quoted from zombieyeti:

I’m no physician, but if your diarrhea is remotely that colorful I would immediately seek medical attention!
Fwiw, Art is subjective, and I don’t ‘detest’ your opinion. Wait to see it in person in a dimly lit arcade and you might understand my approach... That said - I’m not comic book artist and never claimed to be - but - try blowing up that original art with large areas of flat empty color and see how it looks on a pin...
Off to reconsider my choices in life!

Jeremy, as humans we all have a built in negativity bias, where we put more weight on the negative. I can't help but notice your first post in this thread was addressing one of the few people who didn't like the art when the feedback is overwhelmingly positive. It's amazing how those comments always stick out for us.

Here's a challenge for you. Accept this compliment from me by only stating "Thank you. It's true."

Jeremy, you have been a huge gift to pinball. Your art has elevated many games, and raised the game of everyone else. The art package on Avengers Infinity Quest is another knock out from a passionate master.

Quoted from Scandell:

One huge piece of the reveal that is missing...and preventing me from throwing money down...is the animation. TMNT animations were a deal breaker. April O'Neil looked hideous. Stern. Hire me. 20 years of experience. My new animation studio here in Salt Lake City is perfectly poised to create top shelf custom 3D animation work for you machines. Let me do the 3D models at least. Female characters require...skills.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I’ve found publicly trashing a prospective employer is a great way to get an interview!

Besides I’m sure stern is dying to fire it’s in-house staff and replace them with a free lance Utah studio 1,500 miles away.

#918 82 days ago

I have a couple thoughts on the gauntlet. If Anyone plans on remaking one to the Movie Style, and going all out, Id be happy to help with synthetic or Genuine Stones to use. They dont need to be expensive, but how cool, if one is going all out, to light an Amethyst, Citrine, etc...

Another method to enhance the gauntlet would be some really good 3D looking decal/skin.
From the players view, it would add all the detail, and mechanics, just enough that a $25 decal might be the big seller.
One could even test some light faceting star burst decals on the stones, to liven them up.

#919 82 days ago
Quoted from Robertstone0407:

I guess someone mocked this up and messaged me about doing this for their premium. Not a problem and I’d accent with yellow bolts

Knowing the amazing work you do, you could add a yellow metal flake to the clear coat on the armour for that extra pop.

#920 82 days ago

I 'm on the preorder for the new Elegoo Saturn 3D Printer should be here in a couple weeks. I'm not into selling mods but this would be a fun project to test out the printer. There are lots of models out there for the gauntlet. If anyone is interested, has a model they want to try out shoot me a pm. I think it would look pretty bad ass using a resin like this: https://www.dragonresin.com/collections/model-resin-dlp-lcd-led-3d-exotic-metalshine/products/3d-exotic-metalshine-resin-lcd-dlp-led-brass?variant=19947004526665

This is the printer if anyone is interested it has a pretty large build volume so I think it would be big enough:

I know nothing about 3D printers but would like to pick one up. Seen them do some cool things. What makes this one good/better than others?

Quoted from Edster:

If you want to get started in 3D printing, I'd recommend an FDM printer (i.e. filament based) over resin. I have both, and while resin has some advantages it's not nearly as user-friendly as FDM. A lot of folks like the Prusa but there are tons of options.

Quoted from Edster:

Resin printers have very high resolution and can print incredible detailed objects. They are typically used for miniatures and small detailed objects. This is the first reasonably priced consumer model with a large build size. The visual quality is much higher but the print process is more involved.

#927 82 days ago

I wonder if this’ll negatively effect TMNT sales. I thought turtles was a great game but not to my interest because I’ve never saw or read anything about the turtles franchise and imo it seems a bit campy with pizza topping or dance step modes. I’m more into Avengers in general.

I’m going to play before I buy. I’m not interested in the LE due to price and not liking the yellow color. Was an easy pass for me.

It's my first printer I figured might as well jump into the deep end. I wanted to be able to print translucent objects and detailed models for pins so resin just made sense I was waiting for the build volume to improve and took the plunge.

#929 82 days ago

Good looking game, great theme. Considering the sounds on the last Avengers game, X-men, TWD, etc., has anyone heard the vocals on this yet? All I have heard is music.

I don't see why it would.

If you want a game with turtles all over it this isn't going to scratch your itch.

Quoted from Scribbles:

Eaglepin, you in on this one?

Yep yep yep!!!!! I already had an itch to get another machine. Was deciding between a couple and then this came along and made the decision for me Layout looks like fun. I trust that the rules & code will be the same level of interesting and fun as Maiden and JP2. I really like all the playfield, cabinet, and backglass art too, I think it really pops with good color that will liven up a lineup. Can't wait to play it!

I don't have any social media either so I couldn't see the Instagram post with the animation clip, but I'm good waiting until the 9th to see it in action! Only (very minor) wishlist item I have so far is I hope the lights on the shooter rod can change color to light up the knob different colors for different stones. The color shown in the video was pretty bland.

#933 82 days ago
Quoted from Scribbles:

Eaglepin, you in on this one?

You've been great in the JP2 club thread you set up. Maybe you can set the one for this game up too? To whoever sets it up, I have a suggestion for the title that really should be a no-brainer: "Pinsiders Assemble!"

That's got to be it, right?

because you've said it, much longer, that means this will work as a lever
of course i dont know how its "fixed" at the base, but only long time playing will tell us if its OK or not...

[quoted image]

If we make some gross assumptions about diameter and length: a 10mm steel bar deflected at 100mm from the support point would need about 215N of force to bend. It would be very challenging to get that kind of force from a pinball.

Awesome! Glad to hear it. You always have solid advice in the JP2 owners club. I also had the itch for a new machine, but the wife wasnt so keen on the idea. However, when she saw the LE yellow, she gave me the thumbs up! And absolutely, "Pinsiders assemble"!

we'll see
and of course i hope you're right !
i suppose they've thank about this...

but again, can't compare with Cirqus anyway, not only for the all system, but also the power of actual pins

PS : i'm not talking about "bend", but than more "break" at the basis...

Lol, Well you can think of it like that, but I was going to word it a bit more scientifically and say the post thingy will probably be strong enough to get thumped by the ball. You're less scientific explanation is probably better though

Pinsiders: Ironman looks like a Nazi!
Pinsiders: I hate the artwork. So done with ZombieYeti!
Pinsiders: That glove is a disaster! Bring on the mods!
Pinsiders: How soon til the playfields have issues?
Pinsiders: Another price increase?!?
Pinsiders: Elwin’s shots are too tight and code, too complicated!

Stern: Holy shit everyone. This might be the best reaction to a new pin launch ever!!!
(And they may well be right)

Can’t wait to play this game. Hats off to all involved.

"Dual Direction Velocity Detection"....it's a plastic spinning disk Stern lol.
Game looks really cool and fun!

Look at the inserts in front of it... there are lights for spinning one one vs the other. There are likely rules about spinning a certain direction... and the game can tell that... including how fast it's spinning.

I wonder if they will have rules around it similar to the Jeep in Jurassic Park? Spin left or right to move the shots.
