#526 5 years ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Yup.. but note we don't even know what the SLE will have at all.. so the commentary and reactions are more about their very existance.. than about their SUBSTANCE. And that's my point, people are getting wrapped around the axel based on the very knowledge this is happening.. vs actually being impacted.
Such 'very exclusive' kinds of games have been around for decades. No need to get wound up now...

I really like the theme and lots of cool material for the lcd.
I'm a wait and see guy. I have 0 need for a collector's LE, just want a fun machine that looks great and plays well.

#1346 5 years ago
Quoted from Pinstein:

On my TDK I bought an old stage light off of ebay and turned it into a bat signal topper. I tried a white light in it but it was just too bright and not as much fun as the blue. If they offer a topper for BM66 it should be a working batsignal IMO. I really enjoyed my TDK but sold it a couple of months ago with faith in the BM66 rumor. I would have been in if it was a straight up vault retheme but now with a new layout I think it will be great.

that's cool.
did it have it's own on/off switch, or did you wire it into the pin power ?

#1347 5 years ago

how about a laser based batsignal from a small toy on the playfield.
set up a reflector at it's destination point.

Once the ball breaks the laser signal XX amount of times, then batman has responded to the bat-signal and is headed to take on his next mission/mode.

Could be a "start mode" activation mini-mission

Quoted from docquest:

Another vague irritating update on the Stern facebook page that offers no useful information. All it says is: "The details matter. Youll understand soon"

batman looks like he just stuck his feet in freezing water

#1402 5 years ago
Quoted from Chambahz:

I laugh out loud everytime I see someone on Pinside use the word lawsuit.
Nobody's starting a lawsuit. Probably ever.
Heck, I'll bet you could advertise a new Predator machine, take everyone's money, then buy your wife a house, and STILL nobody sues you.
Or the JPOP story. Take your pick.
So to suggest that a deposit must be refundable and that there could be a lawsuit? I mean, since when is a deposit refundable in the first place? Isn't that the whole purpose of a deposit?


i think a large group of people are actually in the middle of suing Kevin (predator) right now.

Did anyone request a specific LE # ?
if (yes), did you get charged more for it?
if ((yes) && (it was a low LE #)) did you get charged even more for it?

yes, it does seem huge, indeed

Quoted from PorkChopExpress:

Just wanted to ask again, I started to look for replies but was bested by all the same posts of the Batman/Wonder Woman pic and gave up.
Does anyone know of any pinsiders who were selected as the Batman 66 super le chosen ones?

did you apply ?

#3833 5 years ago
Quoted from PorkChopExpress:

No, I'm not looking to ask why they are buying Batman 66 SLE, just want to know if any pinsider is and if maybe they'd consider taking some extended video of it. I doubt I'll ever get the opportunity to play it and would enjoy some looooooong vids of it.
Hey Labnip, was that you watching movies over the weekend on that 100ft inflatable outdoor screen. Looked fun chilling out with Cigars, booze, ect...

ya know me and inflatables...

Quoted from hawkmoon:

Did anybody who was at the Show,ask if this pin also has a Shaker Motor??

didn't ask

but, haven't seen it listed anywhere & they didn't say it.

#4903 5 years ago
Quoted from rotordave:

Interesting that the 80 Super LE emails have gone out ... and I think we have had 2 guys (?) in this thread that have said they are getting one.
Which would mean that either the guys getting them aren't the boasting kind ... or a lot of the recipients aren't on Pinside.

here's my vid

#4906 5 years ago
Quoted from pauloz:

It's blocked in NZ. They don't want us to see it.

dohh... probably due to the audio. arrggg...

#4908 5 years ago
Quoted from pauloz:

Won't even tell me I can't see it now. Something about SME copyright and not allowing the content to be seen in our country.

yep. audio blockage
common with utube

#4965 5 years ago
Quoted from taz:

In a video Gomez said that it was playable for Stern employees, but not for the public yet. So, I think that means that as of Expo the game still needed a little work.

code isn't done-done yet.
but, i watched a little kid go up to the pin at the adam west signing room, coin-up and start playing.
watched him play & got to listen to it (they had the audio turned down pretty low).

so, they are playable, just not fully baked yet.

ps. wish the SLE had some extra gameplay modes added, like the Tron LE daftpunk multiball.

#4966 5 years ago
Quoted from docquest:

... SLE adds pin stripping ...

oh yeah...

#5009 5 years ago
Quoted from FalconPunch:

Bit late to the conversation but a couple of pages back people where commenting on the fact that the premium looks like a pro.... The LE a premium and the SLE an LE.

man, i think i took a similar picture, but this one says XLE. wonder if that's the extra super LE ?

#5011 5 years ago
Quoted from DJNOEL30:

Well Stern hasn't called me yet for my $2000 deposit on the BM66 SLE. Who ever is next in line can take my spot, it was still cool getting selected though. I don't know, not as excited about it anymore.. I feel bad for the ones chopping at the bit just to see me say "no thanks".. I still love my 3 new ones and I guarantee you there will be more that's for sure..

just saying...
pretty odd to be on pinside as a user for less than 12 hours just to bitch about giving up your spot on the new Batman SLE.

#5075 5 years ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

So another special edition announced? The studio edition? Wtf......

huh ?
i'm lost

#5080 5 years ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Whats this mean?

hmmm... good question.
maybe they rushed it out and didn't proof read. words really matter sometimes

#5084 5 years ago
Quoted from Yipykya:

The Studio version is a step above the SLE and comes with an official Batman utility belt complete with a rechargeable lithium ion battery and wireless shaker for total Batmania immersion.

Quoted from PW79:

I agree w/Odin

yeah me too...
but that's a merlot !

#5387 5 years ago
Quoted from Farhan:

GB is a decent pin but I think Batman with Lyman coding and a normal flipper gap is going to end up being an instant classic. Such an iconic theme and the right kind of colorful fun that's perfectly suited for pinball. Damn I want on. Any LE's still available.

i have a Batman LE i need to sell

#5411 5 years ago
Quoted from capguntrooper:

I have my friends, family and brothers at arms, as far as I am concerned, I am one of the richest men alive.

i keep mine at arms-length. i'm much richer now

#5456 5 years ago
Quoted from BackFlipper:

I'm not sure if anyone else is feeling this way, but I am thinking of bowing out of my Batman SLE. It's not the $15K that bothers me so much. It really is the extra $1500 I have to pay for state taxes here in Illinois. I would definitely keep this game for years, but if I ever decided to sell it, I would have a $1500 handicap against the entire market. Nobody else is going to pay that. I have to decide by tomorrow when my deposit is due. Any input would be appreciated.

have it delivered out of state & pick it up there.

#5470 5 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

No one.

It's your money, brotha!

i did

#5471 5 years ago
Quoted from cooked71:

When is the deadline?


#5474 5 years ago

The pin was in the big room that was used for the Adam West photo session.
i'm standing there waiting about 10 feet from Adam. One of the pins is positioned behind him for the photo shoot background.
a kid (like maybe 7-8ish?), who clearly has pinball machines at home, went up to the pin, hit start, plunged & started to play.
nobody there cared (or were just busy with everything else).
so, i walked on over and watched.
it plays a lot like dark knight, except for all the stuff going on in the top left.
either the kid wasn't targeting the top left shots well, or maybe it wasn't active/coded yet (was a little distracted, as Batman was 1 foot away at that point).

the sound was turned down low on the pin, but I could hear music playing from it. don't recall if sound effects were active.

#5476 5 years ago
Quoted from DJNOEL30:

Is it worth it??

have to break it down some...

if you like the theme/branding, then that's a yes.
if you like dark knight game play + some new stuff, then yes.
if you want the color display with tons of batman 66 themed animations/clips, then yes.
if you want to say you have Stern's first color display pin, then yes.
if you want to hear the batman tv show music, sound effects and voices, then yes.

if some of those are no's for ya, then... well...

the playfield feels like a 30% change (top/left-ish) from dark knight.
i don't know what's changed in terms of game play modes, mini-games, multi-ball, etc... compared to dark knight. so that's a big knowledge gap at this point.

#5477 5 years ago
Quoted from DJNOEL30:

Is it worth it??

ps. i have 2 on order
anyone want to buy an LE ?

#5481 5 years ago

#5856 5 years ago

Went out to houston the last few days.
Did the shopping thing there on Black Friday.
At a mall, a hallmark store had just opened today. And they had this.

Wasn't even on the shelf yet. I saw it in the aisle box that I thought I'd thumb through a little. I asked a guy there if I could get it. He said, yeah excellent grab, said the other stores don't have any left that he knew of, and this last one was in their opening day stock planned a few months ago. He said they only got 1.

Wow. Hope this fits nicely in the pin somewhere
