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...
UK buyers get power cord
but, no diffuser included
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.
did it have it's own on/off switch, or did you wire it into the pin power ?
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 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.
leaked SLE alt translite artwork !
I hear the left side will have:
EL wire around the ramps, a drop target bank, and third flipper and a special Daft ( ((POW)) ) Multiball
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?
Quoted from dgarrett:
...... 10 years making Expo, and will miss the most exciting one in a decade.
Please post video, I'm sure it will take most of next week watching clips and reading posts, to see it all.
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 ?
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...
Alrighty now... I've been on a plane for 3.5 hours to Expo, and there's no news on batman ???
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
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.
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 ?
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..
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.
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
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.
Quoted from Rarehero:
Oh? Do tell!
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.
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.
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
for people i owe some PM's too... hang in there i'm traveling like crazy right now.
Quoted from MK6PIN:
I did, ( along w topper beacon) but Mike said they weren't going to release the LE's customized w any SLE features...I REALLY hope they include the blade art on the LE's . Really ties everything together....been trying to call this past few days, but my hours are way long right now......excited, regardless
a long topper bacon ?
Thanks Stern for the Batman 66 game video this week.
Hope y'all have a safe & happy Christmas. Hope to come up and visit again.
Quoted from DeadFlip:
What an awesome stream with an awesome group of pinheads.
Thanks to everyone who stopped by!
Again, this was a prototype machine with code that had JUST been tweaked and thrown on the machine. Overall a successful showing.
