Here are some pics I just took of the Pro with the glass off. This is/will be the greatest pinball game EVER. It's fast, fun, and is very rewarding! The rule card is pretty sweet too.

I hope they make cartoon version of the cartoon version.

Looks great! Someone with some great photoshop skills needs to make another rule card for he gems! No way I’m remembering what each of those do during gameplay.

I looked into a premium. If I put a $1000 deposit in today, I probably won’t get it until early 2021. WTF?

#2255 40 days ago

Have you tried manufacturing anything lately?

#2256 40 days ago

If anyone is looking for a line on a AIQLE that's not marked up, shoot me a PM.

Yeah the second run of premiums is in December this year. Seems like the first run is already sold out then?

Yes, a second child. The first one was real quick on the second try. No luck during COVID. Starting on fertility plan. Damn COVID.

Pm sent. I’ll take over your spot. Usually a premium fan, but too long a wait. My first LE.

Anyone have a sense for low long it takes Stern to complete a run of 500 LEs?

Good eye, but still means they are on the line.

Pretty sure I heard they could do 50 games a day at full speed. Not sure if that's one line or multiple lines. Also that's B.C., before covid.

2-4 weeks would be my ballpark guesstimate.

Interesting, if that was all lines that would put their yearly production at 12k-15k a year. Figure 5 models a year....they are building 2000-3000 of each model.

That's based on even split math though.

We know some games run while others don't. We also know higher demand games will run more than lesser of course too.

Quoted from Meegis:

It is just an average/game - meaning some will be higher and others lower. Some games will be built in the following year at the expense of other games.

If that is truly their build rate you can make a lot of educated guesses on a lot of things.... i.e. games in the vault. I think it also tells something about the profitability of pros.

#2269 40 days ago

Wow. I had no idea their production rate was so high.

Sadly, I missed out on this, but the distro said he will keep me in mind if another is available. Hopefully a first run premium in October if not an LE.

Quoted from Makakka:

Herr.
By the way noone should (keep) bitching about sound(music) too dark, about unfunny quotes and any else about the theme before he has read the comic (not you your question is legit). Elwin said the pin is based on the comic alone. He not only said that the poin is based on the comic alone but also that noone can expect the vibe of the movie bc it were totally different in style. You then Sir have ordered the wrong pin.
[quoted image]

Maybe he just likes avengers in general. I've read the comics and movies... you don't have to qualify yourself for buying a game. The game is still quite accessible for people who only know the movies and not so much the comics. Saying he bought the wrong pin is a bit rich just because he isn't familiar with the comic material.

Damn!! That artwork and yellow combo looks insane!! So glad I’m in on an LE with this one, looks to shoot amazing and the thing looks stunning!!

There are 5 releases a year.. but they don't build just those 5 games, nor do they build evenly. They have batch sizes they need to stock parts in. They tend to run about 3-4 older titles mixed in with their new releases each year.

They build based on their expected demand... if a title isn't strong, they don't prime the pump with the next batch of parts needed for it. Titles that are strong, they stock parts, and run games in spurts to fill orders and inventory.

I agree... but if production numbers are maxed at 50/day it means that each title will average 2000 to 3000 each. Yes a JP2 May hit 4000 but a BKSOR might be at 1500. It doesn’t matter what year they build it in... buildOmg one unit steals the capacity from a different unit (regardless when it was built).... it is a true opportunity cost.

It also means that Stern probably leans heavily on LE’s to drive profit and Pros are more of an overhead absorber. This means they wouldn’t substitute making a Pro for a potential LE.... unless they have holes in the line.

I did not say that it was about disappointment the pin hasn’t the movie vibe nothing more nothing less.

#2276 39 days ago
Quoted from Krsmith9:

My distro said all les built this month @50/day.

#2277 39 days ago

Has anyone been working on any Mods? I cant wait to see an improved infinity gauntlet and Avengers Tower , etc

#2278 39 days ago
Quoted from NC_Pin:

No because as was already stated... you aren’t splitting that capacity over just your 5 new titles. It’s split over everything they build. New titles, existing titles, vaults, etc.

Plus, their capacity is reasonably elastic and can scale down based on their desire.

Past their first run, they don’t have to keep building a title if they don’t have the demand. And with demand they can keep going and going and going.

All their capacity tells you is how many units they could ship over a time period. How many and WHAT gets built is up to them. Some titles run for years

Right now they have a great backlog of demand and have basically sold out their production forecast for existing titles for the rest of the year...

Wonder how long it will be before my distributor tells me my premium is getting ready to ship! I’m expecting late October, but hope for early October. Ordered it day one and was apparently that distributor’s first order. We will see. Very excited, but at least I have my new doctor who restoration pin to keep me busy while I wait.

#2280 39 days ago
Quoted from brickbuilder14:

Yes, but you need patience. The game announced only a few weeks ago. and shipping just started.

#2281 39 days ago

Ordered LE day 1 with my distributor saying mid to late October

The gauntlet looks exactly like it does in the comics! No need to change it, what needs changing is the stones/gems those milky lens look like ass! Swap them out for some sort of clear glass/crystal and LEDs should make them pop! Would look 100x better.

I got an email from mine saying they are likely shipping in the next week.

#2286 38 days ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

That would be my guess....they can run these latest hits - JP, EHoH, TMNT and AIQ - for a lonnnnng time, not to mention there's still people wanting Deadpool and Star Wars Comic Version.

#2287 38 days ago

Ok I'm in on a Premium.

Looking forward to the first LE's arriving and your feedback.

From their standpoint, if they are running at full capacity, leaving sales of older machines on the table isn't the worst thing in the world. Once demand outpaces supply it makes it easier to push price increases and other things to juice margins.

Played around with it today. Ramps are so smooth. Ball comes right back to the flipper on a clean shot. Rules are clearly laid out. I can't wait for you guys to check it out. It ships with code 0.90 but it appears to be complete. I am sure there will be simple improvements along the way. And Dr. Strange's spinning disc is incredible and very unique.

I could only get in two games. My initial impression is that stern has come a long way in code development prior to release.

The game looks great. I plan on going back Monday for more.

The team at captains showroom have put together a great pin collection for the public to play. It’s nice for me, having only one game, myself.

Again I appreciate what seems to be solid code before product release, regularly.

He came back on game two with 65 million. Stomped me. I didn’t take a picture of that one.
