Quoted from Pinfactory2000:

Very nice looking pin!!!
glad the SLE is just cosmetic stuff...I can pick up a PRE/LE and for $1000 get the bolt ons from a 3rd party.
Of course...No more Stern for me till KISS code is updated...Cmon stern, pent up demand here!

I think I will get a premium and get the SLE speaker panel mod when it comes out for some huge savings.

Looks like the topper projects the Bat-Symbol on the ceiling.

Hopefully, the topper is an accessory you can add to the Premium.

Besides the art and display isn't this just a bdk ve?

#4104 3 years ago

If that line up was LE, Premium and Pro, with prices in line with their last couple of releases I would be more impressed and interested in buying one, even though not a fan of the theme. I think that SLE looks pretty sweet. I just can't pay the prices on this one.

Quoted from Air_Pinball:

And when Samsung release new features, they explode.

I said Android, not Samsung. Every company has their issues.

Audi and Lamborghini and Ferrari and even Porsche have burned to the ground on special release vehicles too.

I was talking more of innovation than that of rehash others.

OK....and now we move on to Pat Lawlers's new game.

It would seem so, but nice n shiny and bright!

Seems like Stern blinked first by releasing before JJP3?

Agree 100%

#4110 3 years ago

HMMMM well,a comic book pinball!!Ok,now,lets see how it plays!!

#4111 3 years ago

I really like the look of it. The art is very colorful (almost too colorful) and the little extra details are cool. That said I don't see the reason for price increase. The value isn't there. Also when they put them side by side it just looks like Pro, Premium, LE models. I totally expect Stern to sell the topper and armor separately.

The speaker grill looks very barren without art on it. The extra real estate makes it look worse than normal. It's gonna take some getting used to.

Android is a copycat.

No. Much of the game has been changed. New ramp on the left, stupid Joker can removed, replaced with rotating gadgets and LCD screen.

We'll find out more when flyer is released.

#4114 3 years ago

Total pass. While this is a cool looking package, ain't no way I'd consider rewarding Stern for their shit-ass raising prices cash grab tactics. If they sell all of these at such insane prices, they should use the money to hire additional programmers to get all of their games code complete. At least, Stern, use your extra profits to increase company goodwill vs. putting it into your pockets.

#4115 3 years ago

I like the art package, but is the game the same BDK that most don't care for outside of the crane?

#4116 3 years ago
Quoted from Meegis:

I said this above....
Yes.

Oh. Well that's pretty lame. Hopefully for double the price of bdk the code will get finished.

Ok...Next!!! Jjp whatcha got lol

#4117 3 years ago

I will say it then, looks bloody horrible to me. Guess I just don't like that old comic book gay style.

Quoted from Mike_J:

Not the same. Much better flow with a second ramp on the left. Less stop and go.

New rules, animations. Potential to be great!

Stern needs to hire a proofreader. Villain Vision on the TV is misspelled.

If it plays well and is fun - who gives an F.
If it plays like crap -- well then.........

I don't have a BDK and this looks fantastic so far.

How much of the Kool-Aid have you drunk?

Ramp on left was the functional bat mobile ramp, so they made it lesser of a feature.

Removed joker can and put new toy.

You call this "much", as in, a lot of changes?

#4122 3 years ago

I think it looks great. All three versions. It definitely fits the theme of the old show right on. The playfield toys look top notch. The topper is really cool.

That being said, I wish I liked BDK. I never enjoyed the crane or the game for that matter. I can't tell you how many HUO BDK's I've been offered over the past few years, some pretty cheap. I will go into BM66 with an open mind. Looking forward to playing it.

I honestly hope they have all of the years and villains programmed especially in regards to the display. It just reminds me of the cities on KISS that do nothing currently.

This is a fair of a review as it can get.

But this or bdk, whichever suits your tastes and plays how you like.

Only problem is how stern approached this whole thing.

Gomez has already said this will play much different. We'll learn more in the next few days.

You should try being less hostile.

#4125 3 years ago

Lol, what a cash grab....

For the price, I am totally unimpressed. Bat signal is cool, that's about it from me.

If you think premium prices are going back down with the next "normal" release, that is just adorable.

#4126 3 years ago

Looks awesome but still not worth the price. But they well sell them all since some have more money than brains

Not like it's happened before. Not even on spider man or ghost busters

Talk about long shots, that pf is wide open. Looks great thou.

I'm taking full credit for this concept.

#4132 3 years ago

Looks alright, but doesnt matter to me. No way I'm paying $7600 for a Premium. Hoping this isn't the new price model.

#4133 3 years ago

Love the turntable with the lcd, ball lock, avengers/totan spinner style base... makes the shots vary a lot!

So
sle: blue coated ramp, coated armor, 2 extra toys, inner decals, speaker panel screen, differtent artwork and translite topper
le: red coated ramp, no inner decals, no toys
premium: no topper, no coated ramp, no coated armor

#4134 3 years ago

"Holy Pinball Wizard" on the backglass? Ugh....

#4135 3 years ago

Machine looks amazing!!! Kinda disappointed on how stripped down the Pre version is. Not crazy about Batgirl taking up so much space on the backbox. Really hope Stern sells those toppers for the Pre.

#4136 3 years ago

That price is gonna scare away most of the positive feelings. Maybe they should have placed this game firmly under the Kapow imprint kind of like WNBJM was a Whizbang game. Then people might have been more accepting of the price hikes.

lol I had the same reaction.

#4139 3 years ago

Wow thats it for the huge price increase ? Definitely almost same playfield as before but all dolled up with new art and a few new gadgets and a lcd. Kinda feeling bad for all the people that said it wld be a whole new pin but come on this is stern lol.. On a good note lots more options on the way.... bring on jjp and also Hemingway.

#4140 3 years ago

As an LE buyer, I'll throw my 2 cents in.

For the LE, they should:

- Put something on the speaker panel. Ghostbusters pro has art on the speaker panel.
- LE should have a backglass (I can't tell from the pics)
- Habitrails should be powder coated. I see the left side is, but doesn't look like the right side is. If this is the case, I will do it myself.

You must not have watched the tv show, all the drawings of the characters are spot on....or are they photos. I love the art package.

I am not a Stern lover lately, but they nailed this art package. It really is a true reflection of the show. Spot on IMHO.

#4143 3 years ago

So which catwoman is that? Looks like Lee Merriweather to me.

The architecture going forward looks promising. I like the layout with the monitor. This art work to me is great. It's just that IMO they recycled an old game and didn't really stretch anything in the process. Going to wait and see how the theme is integrated into the game. And what sort of sense of humor is integrated.

Very true. The only one I think I saw was when they were climbing up the side of a building via rope, ha, classic.

Love the vintage tv. Classic!
