Looks amazing, but in all fairness the Pro lacks an entire (super cool) ramp, a subway, and a VUK at a minimum (ignoring toys and whatnot). Unlike IMDN and JP, for once there is a real layout difference on KME3 Pro vs. Prem.

#402 4 months ago

Wow. Looks like it has some really cool and unique features.

#403 4 months ago

Love the layout and that spinning disc that raises to become a ball lock under the playfield looks sick! The ramps are innovative and it has a 3rd flipper! Just called my distributor im in for Limited Edition.

#404 4 months ago

Premium looks like the winner here.

#405 4 months ago

There's a Steve Ritchie (when he did 24) level of inserts in this game. Think I counted 65 so far

#406 4 months ago

Premium for sure on this.

#407 4 months ago

agreed - prem all the way although I'm still likely passing but it looks good.

This looks incredible. What a layout. Keith Elwin continues to set an incredibly high bar for unique layouts that we haven't seen in decades.

Literally every other designer - the conversation goes like this when a game is revealed - "well this looks cool but its sort of like a reverse X layout" Or " this looks good but its basically just X with different ramp shot and moved pops."

You just cant have that conversation about Keith's games, every one thus far is SO unique and explores new territory. Amazing what new blood can do!

#409 4 months ago

100 price increase across the board?

#410 4 months ago

WOW> As much as I did not want another super hero theme this looks insane. Keith is killing it.

#411 4 months ago

Holy crap, they already show the topper!! What a concept!

#412 4 months ago

Backglass and side cabinet art on the prem & LE look to be the same with the LE having a red background on the side of the cabinet vs. black background on the premium. Side art on the LE backbox looks pretty cool too. Playfield art really pops. Looks like a lot of fun shots that should have a pretty fun rule set to go with them!

#413 4 months ago

Price went up

Pro Model: $6,199.00
Premium Model: $7,799
Limited Edition Model: $9,199

Quoted from Chambahz:

Not sure how some of you can’t see the bigger picture on this one?
Disney star passes away and within 24-48 hours, Disney is already announcing additional merchandise, profiting from an IP that the deceased was a part of. You don’t think that some people might possibly consider this a little insensitive?
It wouldn’t reduce my opinion of them, given the number of existing products already (and continually) for sale, but seeing as how CEOs have lost their jobs over re-posted tweets recently, mayyyyybe someone has decided that they can survive without the “massive” royalties they will receive from Stern pinball, and that there’s literally NOTHING to lose by showing respect to the family/fans of the deceased by holding off for a little while?
You don’t have to agree, but you should all be bright enough to understand the mechanics on this one.

guess they didn't care, released this morning

#415 4 months ago

Looks great.

Stern is on fire!

I’m not sure I’ll want the LE yellow trim so might get a premium.

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

Premium/LE looks packed but pretty shameful that the infinity gauntlet plastic on pro looks better that the actual molded one.

#423 4 months ago

Does Stern never put the game designer’s name in the press release?

#424 4 months ago
Quoted from Pale_Purple:

They showed him playing the game. It's Keith Elwin.

Also, Stern has a LOT of people working on a single game. Giving Keith sole credit would be super dismissive of the work the team puts in.

Quoted from manadams:

Yeah, that's what I thought too... The gauntlet looks stupid, and I like the Pro much better in that respect.

Otherwise, this looks like a winner... I might need to think about selling a machine to make room and make my first NIB purchase. I'll hold off for them to fix some of the kinks tho.

Hot Wheels should have ramps like this.

#427 4 months ago

Premium LE look like the way to go.

However for route that doctor strange spinning wheel that lifts looks like it would be a nightmare. Even in the release footage you can see it wobble.

Looks extremely fragile to me.

Very true, but the lead designer usually has their name attached to the game.

Serioulsy that gauntlet is pretty bad

#430 4 months ago

wow, looks like tonnes of fun! Premium looks like the way to go...need the lifting disc and that funky subway...

#431 4 months ago

Looks like a dish wash glove.Besides that the more I watch the more I want !

#432 4 months ago
Quoted from Kkoss24:

LOL. True, but I bet it there will be lots of mod options for that. It is almost like they made it bad on purpose to let the modders have some fun.

Does the Avenger's tower hold three balls for a physical lock? Both videos only showed one ball ever in there.

#434 4 months ago

I’m on the list for LE but I think premium, way too much yellow for me

Looks to be virtual.

#436 4 months ago

Yeah the Banana LE is too much yellow.

Wow. Amazing. What an asset Elwin has been for Stern. Amazing what some fresh ideas can bring.

Rick Naegele is the software lead.

Wonder why they showed it so early if its going to be about a 4 week wait on games.

#442 4 months ago

Holy friggin crap... Totally getting a Premium... Keith does it again

#443 4 months ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

LEs first? Interesting...

smart move. Haul in the big money first from the whales - most of whom buy without caring to play it first. Pro buyers are more discerning and will pick it apart on pinside like they always do which can (and has contributed in the past) to a reduction in interest in the up-market versions thereby resulting in worse sales....I'd say this is a brilliant move and likely to be the model moving forward.

Especially since location play is essentially irrelevant at this point in time - the shift of focus to the high end home buyer is a pretty obvious one.

As much as I do like Hot Wheels...you're right.

Possibly cause Jack is announcing soon also....beaten to the punch

#446 4 months ago

My distro said they are shipping him one Pro soon, then LE's in 2 weeks.

#447 4 months ago

Looks really cool for sure. But I'll sit out at least 6 months after the release and monitor the owner club thread. I'm not interested in being a member of an Avengers Fixes Thread - I'll let all the issues get identified and worked out by over-eager, early adopters.

Just like the TMNT diverter ramp issue.

I think I saw Keith's name listed on the left Apron card in one of the photos.

LOL, less than 24 hours is caring. get out.
