This Friday.

#6102 4 years ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Did he give you a shipping date?

He said they told him they ( LE's) would be ready to ship in that 2 week window mentioned earlier. I have a feeling this one has been built and developed " behind the scenes " a bit...even though someone posted that after they went to the factory Friday, they were tempted to buy one.

Mike was super cool, and my gut tells me they show the game flipping Friday, and potentially heading out the door VERY shortly thereafter. I thanked him for sharing all this info, and he was very laid back about it all...implying that he sells a lot of arcade games, and they were much more a pain in the ass. Said pinball was meant to be fun, and he enjoyed selling them. Only if the customer was happy. To offer my 2k back this late in the game tells me 2 things: He wants me as comfortable as possible before dropping " big money" (his words), and that he had zero worries of selling it if I backed out.

This will be a great game, I'm confident......

#6103 4 years ago

Correct...as in 2 days from now.....

#6104 4 years ago

ITS ALMOST BAT TIME!!! Let's see what this is all about!!!

( not changing my avatar, as Alien is still my grail and will wait for it!!!)

Quoted from Whysnow:

Ed seems to be a very nice guy, but as a paid entertainer his opinion does not hold as much weight on Stern games (sorry Ed)

Quoted from Whysnow:

He has a business relationship with Stern and gets obvious perks from Stern as a pinhead. There are motivations to not talk even remotely bad or share an opinion that may be percieved as negative. Sorry but that causes one to help hype; so hard to take Ed's singular opinion as 100%. Keep in mind that Stern just banned Martin from the factory for saying he thought BM66 was expensive...
Say something bad and they may ban you, remove perks, and not hire you for their next self promoting anniversary event paid for by customers. That is just the reality about Stern and hard to blame anyone for wanting those perks as a pinhead.

I'm pretty sure Ed can fall back on his day job without missing any meals.

FWIW, here is the link to his comments. It's just a 2-minute-long side commentary about BM66 at EXPO in the middle of a two-hour-long video about STLE strategy and gameplay (the main topic of the podcast). Nevertheless, it offers some specific details about playfield features and gameplay differences relative to BDK.

To the Bat Time machine set for Friday!!!!!! (this week)

I'm glad to hear he does have a day job. I've listened to some of that music and I would keep that day job for sure.

#6108 4 years ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

I heard he joked about stuff. Did Ed actually talk badly about Stern and all their shenanigans?

#6109 4 years ago

I hope mine doesn't arrive December 23.

#6110 4 years ago

Stern are cowards for banning Martin.

Ed isn't a coward. He'd say something if he wanted to say it.

#6111 4 years ago
Quoted from frolic:

This seems like a lot of work for each LE. Far different than an engraved plaque. These really are "1 of 1" LEs.

Definitely a lot of work. Chris said he's been working on the gadget plaques over the last 3 months. I hope I get a gadget plaque instead of an episode plaque. Here's a post he made with a nice shot of the "portable ultraviolet batray". Based on his comments it sounds like Stern already gave him the heads up on gameplay reveal coming soon.

And yours does

#6117 4 years ago

I'm kind of in topper unload mode at the moment. I'm getting an LE. I will consider removing my topper to sell to a premium buyer, if it is all possible. Just a heads up. Get it?

But hey. Mark says tmrw is the big surprise video day- maybe I'll see some crazy topper integration and want to keep it. (If the topper even makes an appearance... if we even get a video... if WWIII doesn't start overnight)

IF this version of the topper ends up being an SLE/LE exclusive. That might have a large impact on resale if you ever want to sell/trade it in the future. Just sayin.

Plus, this one really looks like it belongs on the game.....

What time is the big reveal!

I'm ready for drinks, video and commentary.

A Danger stream would be a great surprise.

It's now 4.44pm .. my Shrek shop job is all done, the cricket has just started on TV (Australia Vs NZ) and the first beer of the day has been popped.

Life is good.

well considering I own about 7 more Sterns than you... I would say it has a bit more value that yours

Well, the bad news is that I have run out of Hallertau #1 Kolsch (my favorite) and now I had to move on to Hallertau #3 ... the red ale. Nice beer but more of a "1 or 2" beer rather than a "10 or 12" beer lol

Looks like the black caps are primed to win this game RD, Boult bowled beautifully with the new ball.....but while Warner is still there anything can happen.

Quoted from pauloz:

And I can confirm that there was never a problem with it from new till you got it.

Thanks guys for this info, much appreciated.

If the video comes, I am guessing it will be a promo style video and not a recording of actual gameplay?

It would be really hard for them to mess that up. You can make every pin look amazing if you are editing the video...

#6141 4 years ago
Quoted from docquest:

I guess it was confirmed several times (that the SLE/LE topper is exclusive to these machines and the Premium topper is different).

Usually I hate toppers, but I really like this one a lot. The Gotham skyline topper for the Premium will probably do nothing for me at all, especially if it ends up to be one of those ultra cheap LED lighted plexi boards you often see at China dollar shops.

The odds of getting game play video today are as good as getting a code update for Kiss....
