Does "Van Der" translate to "In The"?

Its dutch. "Van der" means "of the"

Quoted from smassa:

As much as I would love this unfortunately i dont believe Marvel can use the Surfer as they sold off the right to 20th century fox.

You mean the 20th century studios that disney now owns... as well as marvel?

And that was just movie rights...

#1054 6 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

but the Stern mech has "dual direction velocity detection"! Here I thought they couldn't top "Super Action Spinner".

I would wish that this means when you hit the spinner just right, maximum velocity and spin speed, a different sound effect, maybe even visual is rewarded.

Just like we like the sound a ripped spinner makes, this could make it "more better"

Disney/Marvel already own all those movie rights again, this is comic book based so with or without the Disney/Fox merger they could have offer up everyone to Stern.

Stern must have chose to just licence The Avengers, I’m sure Marvel would have offered them up Spidey, Fantastic Four and anyone else they wanted for a few more big bags of cash!

Man I sure wish I would have been faster to pull the trigger on a LE.....

Panzer has found his new “stern doesn’t code premium mechs” campaign. Haha

Releasing today, wonder if any coincidence with the Stern release?

Is there a shot behind Captain Marvel from the upper flipper?

Marvel is pushing a few major Avengers product releases these coming weeks, likely Marvels timeline/schedule rather than Sterns, might be why ZY was so pushed for time on this one.

#1061 6 months ago

Yeah Stern is getting some good co-marketing with this one. Launch info on Marvel's website, JD streaming the Pro gameplay reveal on Marvel's twitch channel. Whether or not you like the new Avengers game, or whether or not you like Stern it is also great exposure for pinball in general.

Fortnite has also based there newest updates on Marvel heavily. Marvel killing it recently!

Quoted from dos_reboot:

Is there a shot behind Captain Marvel from the upper flipper?

Yeah, it looks like there are two shots....one to the new design wide ramp accessible from all 3 flippers, and then a shot that goes to the right orbit that turns into a ramp (not sure how that should be called), which is similar in design to the right ramp on Dialed IN though the wireform starts all the way in the upper left corner of the PF. That ramp is accessible via the right orbit, upper left flipper, and the plunger.

I think the windowed subway is a cool gimmick. Has this been used ever before?

#1067 6 months ago

Im kind of wondering how useful the upper flipper will be if that right ramp is shootable from both of the bottom flippers as well. That just leaves the side loop shot as upper flipper exclusive.

I don't expect it to be like Hobbit's upper flipper or anything. But I guess it will likely just come down to how the code/rules implement it. Like if looping that Upper Flipper to right ramp is important to some rules feature.

I look forward to some full gameplay video to answer these vitally important questions.

#1068 6 months ago

Also the spinner, also the sanctum target shot that is right there as well

#1069 6 months ago

But the lower flippers can hit those two as well, no?

I'm also guessing some sort of combo scoring repeating the Gauntlet ramp from the upper flipper since it feeds right back but who knows

Yeah. I have full confidence in the code. Im as confident in the code as I am when I hear ZY is the artist on a game.

Didn’t Keith say he was going to make his next game more accessible than his last couple of games? I’m guessing this is the answer to that.

#1073 6 months ago

Did someone around here say they were looking for an LE?

https://projectpinball.rallyup.com/avengers-infinityquest-le-pinballmachineraffle

I don't know if a better chance than finding a distributor, but a good cause and definitely at a lower price.

It doesn't appear like there is much in the way of 'dangerous' shots compared to IMDN and JP2

Quoted from JWP72:

Which is great as that kinda suits the theme more, I know I brought this game of Keith’s because of the theme being a total win in our house but also because it looks like my kids could play this one and enjoy it unlike JP3 and Maiden.

#1076 6 months ago

Just snagged an LE this morning from the Boys at Gameroom Goodies - Had a line on one from gameroom guys but wasn't able to seal the deal due to them being closed today

Quoted from wesman:

I feel the same way. Too many shots clustered into the same area. Far worse though on TMNT.
I wish Elwin was given room to expand his playfield, and improve shot distance for some of those combos.

Will Stern let him do a wide body? It would be incredible I’m sure.

I don’t think stern will try that one again for a while.

Keith’s code on iron maiden and Jurassic Park is great not quiet sure what all the complaining on the previous pages are about, you can play his games as shallow or as in depth as you like, his rules are multi layered.

I’m just glad to see Avengers looks a little easier to shoot and isn’t as tight looking as Jurassic Park, I’ve brought this for me to play with my kids as they love avengers espieclsly my son and he’s the little pinhead of the family already, he will go mad when he sees this arrive!

#1092 6 months ago

hooked any chance your going to be making one of your awesome cast metal mods for this game, like say a new Infinity Gaunlet?

#1093 6 months ago

I just got to watch in detail.

I didn't realize there was a ramp in the back/right orbit.

The features (Pinside) are counting the tower magnet lock as a ramp. I guess it is technically a ramp (incline plane) but it's not a strict definition of a ramp in my book because it doesn't lead to another level. But I do love ramps and this game half the shots it seems lead to ramps.

I just hope the spinning disc is free spinning. I dislike big bulky spinning toys that don't spin freely like the car on BM66. I'd like something that spins not as well as a true spinner but something that has good spinning action, on the video it seems well spinning at least on the pro with 10 spins from one hit.

Not sure if the subway stores the balls like Metallica or just dumps them out?.

Stores them. Same mech as F2K.

#1095 6 months ago

Both models look very fun and promising, can't wait to see them in action. Already a huge fan of iron maiden, was looking forward to add a jurassic park in the game room but this release is forcing me to think a bit more. To my taste Keith is really incredible and refreshing which makes me want all his games so far. But let's be honest if Stern's quality was a bit more reliable Stern would have sold me the 3 titles already. I'll wait for buyers reviews before making any move. But congrats on the new release.

#1096 6 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Its hard to say how "staging" the balls will work in the rules, but the mech does look to be able to handle 3 separate balls. It seems like it will play into the way that any Gem Quest (modes?) will be be able to be a multiball. Maybe X number of revolutions then hit the sanctum target to lift the disc to lock a ball, lock up to 3 balls before starting a Gem Quest? I wouldn't be surprised if the white gem looking shots around the playfield light the Gem Quests.

Looking forward to the gameplay reveal so I can stop speculating based on images and start analyzing based on video!

Quoted from pghpinfan:

I would be curious as well but going to wait and see what issues pop up before I buy. Just call a few distributors and ask.

#1098 6 months ago

I think the bi-directional ramp is very clever.

#1099 6 months ago

The rollercoaster look of the captain marvel ramp is still my favourite thing to see in the pics.

Just wow!

#1100 6 months ago

Had an LE setup for a local customer that passed if anyone looking.
