A few noticeable improvements on the release - I got one Møre villain mode.

So it seems to be a pretty big update, I am sure when the license approve more stuff the release can really pop.

For sure

Game is going to get there. Unfortunate it's been so slow.

Is that the new Dr.No game?

#7506 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Oh, I'm not implying Rescue 911 is a GOOD GAME. It's terrible. But the gimmick of the helicopter on a stick with a magnet predated the Bond on a wand by decades, and BoaW has less action. Gimmick regression.

Actually a well taken care of a tuned R911 is a good game. Easy to play. Hard to master. Shots are easy to show beginners how rules work etc. Have you ever really played one? or did you just drink the pinside coolaid liek everyone else.

Have a look at my pin collection history (it's public - enjoy!) and you wouldn't have to ask that question.

I'm glad some people like R-911, but I ain't one of them. Most of the Gottliebs from that era do not appeal to me at all, and R-911 is no different. Stargate comes the closest, but the fact that I like the theme probably helped it gain my rare Gottlieb affection.

And how dare you accuse me of drinking the pinside kool-aid.

I MAKE the Pinside kool-aid for others to enjoy!

I own a rescue 911 simply because it was dirt cheap and its not worth anything to sell (my particular example) and I kind of just ignored it for a long time. I will say, it's not a good game, but it is a decent game. Once I have it a chance it was better than I thought. Its kinda fun in its own quirky way. Nobody is going to mistake it for godzilla, but it's ok lol. The heli is a cool mech but it's also over used in the game and after a while it's just something slowing you down. I hope bond on the wand doesn't end up the same way.

Played Bond LE and ver .80 code for 2 hours today. Soooo much fun, it’s like a real game now. The Bond theme is a smart choice. This game will continue to improve getting 4 villain modes still, weapons pizzazz and polish. Because I have caviar taste on a halibut budget, I ordered a Bond pro today. Plan to swap alternate translite in, once designed and available.

I put more games on the Pro this past week and its shaping up to be a winner for sure. It helps I like the Bond theme as well. Im sure some premiums will show up on route soon as well. Playing again tomorrow, hopefully with the updated code.

#7515 1 year ago

I just got a note from my distributor that LE's are supposed to start shipping next week. Has anyone else heard the same? I'm waiting for Bond and Cactus Canyon (Remake - LE).

some of the Bond LE have shipped.

I was told that i (could) have some CCr LE next week though.

Jump over into the owners thread - lots have already received their LE’s.

Mine shipped this past week. Should have by Wednesday.

Forgive the blatant plug, but we're getting very close to the end of my charity fundraiser for the Cancer Research Institute (Bond LE slated for delivery Wednesday)

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/flip-for-good-charity-auction-for-james-bond-007-le#post-7192160

In 2022 we as a community were able to raise ~$28k for cancer research with a similar charity fundraiser for my Rush LE. Obviously the market (and economy) has changed in the past year, but I'm still hopeful we can do some good with my Bond LE.

If you or someone you know is interested in picking up a Bond LE and supporting a very worthy cause, please check out above link. We're at $1350 so far, and I will be matching any bid above purchase with my own donation to CRI as well.

Best wishes for the New Year!

Does anyone know the list of movie theme songs in the Bond? I heard they didn’t get the license for the Goldfinger theme song due to cost but does anyone have a list of the other songs? Thanks in advance!

#7523 1 year ago
Quoted from FourFlippers:

For the 6 Connery Bond films in the game the theme song is the same name as the movie except for Dr No which has the classic Bond theme playing as the opening credits start.

Thunderball sung by Tom Jones was the other song that was to expensive. However, I think they can still use John Barry's music which in most cases also has the tune of the theme songs in instrumental form.

I think that would actually work better in most cases. Some of the theme songs like Russia with Love wouldn't sound appropriate in a pinball game, except maybe after the game is over and it plays a little of it at the end maybe.

#7524 1 year ago

Did anyone else is LE not come with any keychain fobs?

I think we will be able to use PB to do whatever though.

There are currently zero movie theme songs (besides the doctor no / James Bond theme). There are several classic John Barry bond pieces though.

I think Gomez did say there should be 3-4 when finished. Maybe all but Goldfinger/Thunderball?

Might be able to swap some with PB

#7529 1 year ago

If PB ever works with the encrypted software.

#7530 1 year ago

Getting mine today - thanks for all of the notes and updates.

#7531 1 year ago

Bond pro came today with under 200 plays. Getting code update treatment now. Guess what I found? A manual and a lockdown bar. I feel like Stern is wishing me, “Good luck”.

Ive only played the Pro and its going to be a winner!

#7533 1 year ago

ver .80 of software cleans up bugs and issues from ver.70.

The game is based on 6 movies and there is a color coded insert for each movie, villain, henchman, spectre weapon and woman. Dr No and Thunderball assets and corresponding modes are needed. IMO 25-50% of the total assets are in now, so lots more to come. You should be able to see where the pin is heading.

Watched a long stream last night and I think so - I'm going to wait to buy but it's growing on me.

I ordered an le day one, then after all the drama, tried to sell for msrp, no real serious offers. It arrived Tuesday, I did a 11 hour round trip, set up yesterday and really like this pin!. Some unique, to me, shots, and I agree it's at 25% is all, but I can see the potential. Gomez will not disappoint, could be a real sleeper pin. Glad I didnt panic sell

Quoted from Psw757:

Has been PB kept up with the constant Stern IC connect updates? This pin will need PB to reach its full potential but I'm concerned if PB can keep up with Stern's constant coding changes.

I cannot understand why so many posted about coin mech screws. Now I heard one rattle around and I’m missing another one.

Seems simple that someone is not putting these in right.

I had two of the thumb screws in the bottom of my box. One from each coin mech. First of four NIB Sterns to have this minor issue. Someone new on the line has has a weak thumb and forefinger LOL.

No heads being crushed by anyone on the line, then...

...or maybe TOO MANY heads being crushed.

Nevertheless, one would expect those screws, more so than others, to remain secure in Thumb-derball.
