Quoted from j_m_:

how is SST not an abbreviation for starship troopers here on pinside yet? I had to scratch my head for a while before I could figure out which pin northvibe was talking about

Same here, I was almost embarrassed to ask, then my mind finally got it. Didnt help it was early on 1 coffee.
I remember several years ago, i kept seeing WH20, scratching head, what is that? Finally a pinsider told me water, H2o, i felt so dumb.

Probably because Starship is one word, so it's just ST, and that doesn't work either.

freaking weird, ST is starship troopers. But you could say SST like sega Starship troopers...but it could also be stern star trek.....man we have issues on pinside they need to be fixed asap

I'm certainly not going to be able to sleep until this f*cking acronym snafu is worked out. Damn.

Take over the world = Dr. Evil = Austin Powers

Hunting BUGS!

Woohoo!!!

For sure SST! Let's see this!

#3311 1 year ago

Could also be space jam.

The mon-stars were trying to take over the world (clue #2 brain).

But I'm likely wrong and all the clues of world take over and now bugs is starship troopers.

#3312 1 year ago

Space Jam? How many older machines left? I wish they would finish up on those so we can look forward to new titles in the clues.

GOT has been done and it took 2 years. GB is in process of being worked on. I would not expect it before a new Stern code update and then a bug fix release for that new code.

#3316 1 year ago

does anyone have details on how well these fit into the showcase heads?

I prefer LCD colorDMD but dont want to permanently alter the head.

I assume form the announcement that the LED colordmd is plug and play?

I believe it is the same as a Stern LED setup.

The lcd will not fit without permanent modification.

#3319 1 year ago

thanks for confirmation yall.

sounds like this one is LED for me.

#3320 1 year ago

Miss my SST. It’s one of my favorite movies. Marines in space! Ya wanna live forever????

#3321 1 year ago

This announcement makes me sad. I had a nice SST but sold it too cheap about a year ago. Wish I still had it now.

#3322 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

I was thinking this too, but LCD is SO much better than LED that I'm gonna bite the bullet and make the modifications to fit the LCD. It's not like SST is an $8K highly collectible game, but it does have awesome animations that I would prefer to see in the better format.

I think it's a matter of opinion. If one is sticking with the dots, I think the LED's look better, brighter.

I agree that LCD is so much better!

Please document your change over and LMK how hard it was when you do it. It would be great to have a freshly done one to see and hear how it went.

Brighter, definitely. Better? Uh, no.

If you're just wanting dots, and it's not a SAM or SPIKE game with many shades, why is the LED worse?

Dot pitch looks weird. Either too bright or not bright enough. No happy medium.

No DotXL mode.

#3328 1 year ago

Hooray and congrats, Starship Troopers owners! A really interesting game based on a wildly under-rated movie.

Already noted on post 3314 like 13 hours ago.

I remember a thread where someone cut a hole in the wood above the lcd that provided space for an LCD to fit. I'll see if i can find it.

Yeah!! New clue for a new release. (1) Facebook - Microsoft Internet Explorer provided by Sercel, Inc (resized).png

#3332 11 months ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Yeah!! New clue for a new release.

OH Shit I am getting excited "Get out" from Amityville horror, a ghost movie!

#3333 11 months ago

"Get out" is a classic phrase of Arnold's. Since T2 and T3 were already released, that leaves LAH. I watched LAH a few times but I cannot recall him saying it.

#3334 11 months ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

Yeah!! New clue for a new release.

Is that Daisy Ridley? Star Wars Trilogy?

#3335 11 months ago

Allison Williams. Her dad is the one who makes up news stories starring him and got demoted to MSNBC as a result.

Hurricane? Allison Williams=Williams game ? "Get out" of town when a Hurricane is coming?

#3337 11 months ago

So it's a Williams game? That's all I have for now...

"Get Out" isn't a ghost movie - It's an X-Files style story about a guy who follows his girlfriend to the Party Zone for a weekend with her parents but finds himself Lost In Space when dark conspiracy to turn him into a Jack-bot leaves him in a Hurricane of panic and doubt. After finding out WHO Dunnit he has to Fastbreak out of captivity, become a Maverick and fight his way out using Lethal Weapons (3) to claim his Independence Day.

But seriously, best movie of 2017 IMHO.

#3338 11 months ago
Quoted from DCFAN:

Hurricane? Allison Williams=Williams game ? "Get out" of town when a Hurricane is coming?

I was thinking more "A. Williams" as in, it's a williams game. Not sure if the Get Out is significant, but probably so. Good news is, the Williams list is very short now, so not many candidates to guess. Could be Slugfest, too, with Get Out kinda mapping to "Take me out to the ball game".

#3339 11 months ago

In that case I am going with NBA Fastbreak. Get Out is such a great movie, and I don't want to spoil it, but it seems like the closest one related to that movie. Maybe Jack-Bot but I don't think it has as much of a connection.

#3340 11 months ago

Allison Williams > Allison by Elvis Costello > Elvis

#3341 11 months ago

She was in Peter Pan Live! on NBC.

****HOOK CONFIRMED****

#3342 11 months ago

OK I got it. Allison Williams' character in Get Out is named Rose. SO....Black Rose.

#3343 11 months ago

Black Rose was already announced in March.

#3344 11 months ago

LOL, you're right. I missed it because I was browsing titles on their LCD page and they only offer LED for Black Rose. Oh well, back to my Elvis theory.

"Get Out." Famous Arnold quote. Internet Pinball Machine Database Data East 'Last Action Hero' Images - Microso_2018-05-31_17-11-22 (resized).png

Quoted from PinballManiac40:

"Get Out." Famous Arnold quote.

But the Allison Williams aka A Williams is too much of a coincidence. I don't think it's a Data East game.

But, the quote does not always relate to a picture in the hint.

It would not surprise me if it turns out to be hurricane

Wow, good thinking! Hope it's LAH tho

My Hurricane display just started a slight gasing out in lower left corner.
So this would be awesome!
