Quoted from wyopin:

I was a fan of the sneak peak...sure, the music wasn't your typical pin attract music, but it fit the theme perfectly...tunes from the series.

Agree 100% ... perfect match. Loved the video clip integration as well

Happy to share my application video. Not the most creative but it got done, submitted, and importantly, got me an opportunity for the SLE

Quoted from Texasff78:

Date is Dec 2 2016. I understand that the playfield will even out a little over time but these are not small marks and the distance some of them are from the spots a ball typically jumps means they won't be getting hit often. It is hard to capture in the pics but there are a ton. The way the ball flys up and hits the glass and ramps off the magnet is definitely part of the problem.

I'm in the camp that dimpling happens quite a bit on new playfields BUT not all of them. I believe it's as simple as: a hard steel ball, running and bouncing on top of soft wood and fresh clear coat - steel ball wins. BUT ... I have an MMR LE and it has zero dimples and hundreds of games. My GBLE that I purchased around the same time has hundreds of dimples. Now GB LE throws the ball around pretty violently so that certainly adds to the opportunity to dimple.

It is ALSO true that playfields with thousands of plays can and do "even out". I restored my own Bride of Pinbot playfield and it is now mirror flat without a single dimple. This is because it was played perhaps 10's of thousands of plays before I bought it and restored it. It will never dimple again as the wood is 100% compressed.

One way to reduce the chance of dimpling is to add a playfield protector. There are folks in Germany that sell templates and I have one of theirs and it's nice and works well. But, no one has one made for BM66 yet so ...

I made my own this evening before I put a single game on my new BM66SLE. The thread link follows. Parts and supplies are cheap. Does take a few hours though and some patience. Probably would not bother at this point if your PF has dimples. Like my GBLE, the more I play, the less I see them as they begin to blend together and eventually almost disappear.

Quoted from fuseholder:

Just played. I had a lot of fun. Surprised how open the playfield is compared to other Stern machines. Shaker was working fine.
I'm hoping the lighting sequences and flashers get used more. I think this will be in the top ten in time. Over all package is stunning.

Very nice! Did yours come with topper? Did you pick it up at Stern? Still waiting on mine ...

102 games so far on my game. Personally around 40 games for me. Finally cracked 500MM.
