Quoted from mnpinball:

If you want to sell a HUO spidey now would be the time.

Shouldn't SM VE get a thread of its own?

#202 4 years ago

We have seen and heard several rumors of VEs. I don't know that that would be a license that Stern could go get again, considering it is 2 movies and an entire reboot ago. Sony probably isn't into licensing the Tobey Maguire vehicle any more. And is that a title that there is a lot of clamor for new ones? LOTR is above SM, surely. Definitely TRON. Just my thoughts.....

Sucks at making Spider-Man movies, clearly.

I cannot imagine SM VE being anything other than the original trilogy.

#207 4 years ago

Not sure about SMVE.......seem to be plenty around and they're not so expensive huo. Spike and LEDs would be nice though.

#208 4 years ago

LotR!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

The puzzles are elf runes. LoTRve between Kiss and GoT.

I have X-Men LE money burning a hole in my pocket. =P

Which gets the LCD then ? LOTRve or JW ?

LTG : )™

#214 4 years ago

If Stern were to release LOTR VE, it would seem to make sense to do a limited run before GOT is released to not risk cannibalizing sales of GOT. If they do release it, I for one will buy one right away. I may come to regret it when I see GOT, but at least they will likely be selling GOT for 2-3 years to give me time to save up some money again.

That is the first thing I thought of when I saw this gibberish. But I tried to make connections to runes but couldn't come up with anything. Wishful thinking.

LotRVE will be the first and last NIB purchase I'll do. I've been saving for it, that's how sure I am they'll run it. They could easily sell 500 minimum.

How about Spiderman 1.5? The same layout but with hand draw art, comic book style like X-men. Get rid of any references to the movies in the DMD and you have Spiderman VE 1.5.

You still have the voices of the actors and DMD animations from the old movies to deal with.

MRG for the win, he cracked the code.

Think of it as a Spiderman Luci

Would be cool, but would cost them to do. I'd imagine any VE are going to be ready to make games from existing code, parts, etc. No redesigns. Even paying a license fee would be less of a headache than a redesign.

I believe you are kidding, but to humor you it just sounds like a lot of work to only sell 500 to 1000 machines for around $5000. You would have to change the animations, the art, the plastics, and the audio. The only thing that would remain the same is the structural elements. Even the Doc Ock figure is movie specific as it in the image of the actor.

#223 4 years ago

He's not kidding. That's the real word.

As for LOTR, once Stern dashed any hopes of upgraded sound I lost interest.

At the prices people want for their LOTR these days I would gladly buy a new one with no wear and tear for the same price or slightly more than a 12 year old worn out one. Same old sound or not, doesn't matter. People want 6k+ up here for a 2003 LOTR

After WWE, I expect anything now.

Yep. Makes sense for them to do a VE of it. If the MSRP is 6k, dealer price is 5k5 shipped. They'll make a healthy profit off that.

So... what ended up being the point of this nonsense?

#229 4 years ago

Well, the coded message was just decoded to read, "Don't blame us when the Game of Thrones playfield art sucks big hairy donkey balls."

So...pretty relevant, I'd say.

#230 4 years ago

Well, I decoded the message as "Don't blame us when the Game of Thrones playfield art sucks Hodor's big hairy balls."

It was 'big shiny donkey balls', when I translated it.

When Jersey Jack got Stern to run the Lotr LE in 2009, they took a while to sell all of them. I can't picture Stern converting the Whitestar system to Spike if they can . (?)
