looks like they also took into consideration the inner art. i have inner art on many my pins but they were never designed for it and its always a risk damaging the blades moving the playfield up and down. this sounds like it was engineered for this mod. clearance should not be an issue going forward on new sterns.

#409 2 years ago

does anybody find it odd that a bm sle costing 15000 came with .6 code. it says a lot about sterns commitment to code.

#475 2 years ago

selected to buy a 15000 pin? sounds funny. you could have sent a video of a blank screen and they would have "selected" you. you pay 15000 and feel like you won a prize, stern is really amazing.

congrats to all the winners!

the ls ramp air ball plastic flutter drove me crazy. jeeze any attention to detail!??

#1315 2 years ago
Quoted from jfh:

Can you translate this to English please?

the left side ramp air ball plastic on the ramp is held by just 2 screws. the one side of the plastic not screwed into ramp flaps/vibrates like crazy when you hit the left side ramp, kapish.
get off the computer and go play it somewhere and you will see what i mean.

Quoted from jkashani:

Finally got a chance to play a BM 66 premium at Rock Fantasy. My first impression is that the colors were nice and the screen was nice and vibrant. However, the game felt stripped down, even much more than any stern pro version i can think of, and the game play was mediocre at best. The play-field was sparse and the lazy susan did not provide any satisfying shots. The fluttering of the ramp was annoying and the characters in the screen would move their lips and you could not hear them talking. At one point, it kept on playing a scene and my friend thought it was broken. I think that Stern not only rushed this game into production, but also did a disservice to what could have been a great theme. The crane just seemed to become active on a random basis and was more of an eye soar than a cool toy. When I read about the problems that people are having out of the box, I cant see how any one can defend Sterns lack of quality control, or be told to be patient and Stern will make it right. If any high price item, outside of pinball, had quality of issues similar to Stern, they would not be in business for long. The picture is the large dimples, worse than any thirty year old game that I have, on the BM 66 that is about two weeks old.

the pin had code .65. the joker looped for 8 times and need i say it was bad.
definitly needs code 3.0 to save it.
played scared stiff, bsd, and ac/dc afterwards and would drop my money on
those before i would buy a nib. very bad quality control at this point dare i say good luck to all you nib buyers cause you're probably gonna need it, its getting worse by the day!

amazing how this really expensive and special pin needs the buyers to repair factory defects.

#1576 1 year ago

saw this in gary sterns office.
you coulda sent in a blank video and 15000. instant approval i can guarantee you.

telling pinsiders bm66 sucks > telling people their children are ugly!

#1815 1 year ago

funny how none of the rich guys are jumping on the le's that are for sale in the market. i thought the pin was so great.

#1860 1 year ago

le for sale 8700 obo. weren't these 10k new???

#1869 1 year ago

people spend 7-10 k on a pin and worry about 400 shipping. heck 80 percent of my machines have been shipped. not a game changer for a grail pin or arcade.

#1871 1 year ago

if it was the bat shark repellant id be all over it!

#1874 1 year ago
Quoted from ultimategameroom:

Sorry but it is always a gamble!
I personally could care less about the cost of the shipping. It's the risk of damage that's most concerning. I'm lucky enough that Michelle b who I've used for many years uses a local moving company who happens to be a buddy of mine from high school for the final part of the del. to my home. In the 6 times I've had games shipped one came with a bent rear leg.I was lucky as it was a fully restored game and that's minor. The other was crated in fullplywood box on a pallet and forklift speared thru the side of the crate/ body of the game.

I have shipped over 150 games and luckily the worst was a couple games got scuffed on the bottom. but I understand this better now, great point.

i wonder if some of you ever play your pins?

#1965 1 year ago

the early adaptors find all the issues and come up with the fixes for the rest of the buyers. not like stern goes out of their way to fix future production runs or make repair kits to send out. its like they got the factory in full production to get the machines out before the canceled orders start to come in.
its really sad to see all the buyers on a thread discussing all the fixes that need to be done on a nib machine. status quo really sucks and you see gary on interviews act like he is the godfather of pinball. really cocky attitude with the new junk they are producing. he says it magic. yeah he makes peoples money dissappear.

#2038 1 year ago

bm 66 le in market for 8700.00.
someone buy it because when code is done in 3 years its going to be highly collectible.

the looping joker video is so crappy. one of the first things i would fix.
played a routed one and the batmobile was missing and the fluted ramp cover was fluttering more than ever. couldnt finish my last credit and walked away.
it does nothing for me. hope the code can save this one like prior sterns.
