Quoted from Stones:
Just bought the premium. Got it set up tonight. This game is fakking awesome! The code, light show, the music, disco multiball ....
Best Stern purchase yet!
Niiiice! Mine should be on its way to me!
I personally think Iron Maiden is a much better game than SW, but I know people really like SW for some reason We have a SW at our location and I just can't get into it. Maiden is one of my favorite pins ever.
Mine showed up today. Unfortunately I am really sick so can't really enjoy it yet, but it is here for when I feel better. The cab is beautiful on this version.
Had my first two billion point games tonight. This one was slightly higher that the other one. Two completely different games though. This GC game I was one shot away from completing every mode. The other game was all Mech Suit and Disco Multiballs with 4x playfield multiplier
I played the pro a lot at TPF and I feel the extra ramp adds a ton to the game on the premium. The mirror ball not so much. The drops make it play differently as well. I am very happy with the decision to go with the premium if only for the left orbit shot alone.
If anybody has an extra pro translite for sale at a reasonable price, let me know. I prefer it to the premium translite.
Quoted from mbrave77:
On the bright side the last few days I have finally found the sweet spot for hitting snkkt shots. So Im trying to time my multiballs around them.
I can only seem to hit mine on a flying shot on a ball bouncing to the left flipper. The flipper doesn’t seem strong enough to hit the shot completely from a cradle.
Has anybody done powder coated armor on their premium yet? Trying to figure out what color would look good.
Yeah the stern ones are pretty crappy, but that scoop takes a lot of abuse. Any guard is going to get bent up.
Got art blades from Tilt Graphics installed today. Very easy install and they look really good on this machine IMO. I usually do mirror blades in most of my games, but I thought I would try something different on this one. I like it.
I second the Tilt Graphics art blades. Very high quality.
Is there a point award for the Ninjapocalypse combo? All I ever see is the animation but i can never catch how much it is worth. Really funny animation btw.
Quoted from Blackzarak:
One questions for all the pro and premium owners Im debating getting the premium or pro? Just want to know what's more bang for your buck is it worth getting the premium or just save the money and go with the pro? I personally like the pro art better but not sure how the gameplay between the both is better any help will be appreciated.
Do you like hitting full orbit shots or do you like pop bumpers a lot? I personally would miss the disco loops too much if I didn’t have it.
That said most people that bought a pro will tell you go with that and people that bought the premium will likely say go with that.
Quoted from stevebighead:
Hey Deadpool owners, about to spring for a premium but still considering Iron Maiden. Any of you out there own both that like Deadpool better?
I own both. I love both games equally but they are very different. Iron Maiden is a deeper game and more challenging but I have just as much fun playing Deadpool. If I had to only keep one it would probably be Maiden, but I would miss Deadpool terribly. I don't think you can go wrong with either one.
Quoted from pinhacker71:
Here’s the “ribbing” on mine. Stern seems to think it is acceptable. They have not responded to any emails. Doesn’t affect gameplay but bothers me.
Many Sterns and CPR playfields have been this way for years now. Not all of them mind you, but a lot. Seems to be the luck of the draw anymore.
Quoted from V_piscopo:
From left flipper cradle, what percentage would you throw out that you successfully land the kitana shot? And from right cradle (or fast shot) what percentage would you throw out that you hit a successful dp/col shot? I'm getting a lot of bounce back from do/col shot and a lot of short shots on kitana ramp. I'm at 6.6 and have also tried 6.8. I can usually hit katana ramp on the fly but not from cradle.......but also I suck at pinball.
Key to the Katana ramp is hitting the right side of the entrance. If you hit the middle of or left part of the entrance it will never go up the ramp as it changes the angle as it hits the back part of the curve instead of gliding along it.
Quoted from vireland:
It's MUCH more prevalent on Sterns now. MUCH. And before they used to give you a replacement. Now you get an "as designed" line and no replacement. More Stern cost-cutting, this time on PF wood and prep comes home to roost. At least the craters will eventually make it less the focus of attention...
I guess we have been lucky. We have bought 6 NIB Sterns over the last couple of years and haven't gotten a 'ribbed' playfield. I have known people that have though.
That said, I have 2 CPR playfields that are ribbed.
Welp, I know I am buying extra switches on my next PBL order. Might as well be proactive about it.
Quoted from Eskaybee:
All I gotta say is what a bad ass game! Snikt shot might be my new favorite shot in pinball even though I only have about a 5% success rate hahaha.
Loving the premium features so far, but had to go with the pro translite. [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Nice, I need to get a Pro translite for mine.
Quoted from delt31:
Joining the club Weds. Played this game when it first launched and thought cool unique layout but the code didn't sit well. Fast forward played it recently and loved it. Looks like they brought it all together and even though I wanted to stick with the pro, after playing both recently, I needed that left orbit right flipper butter.
That being said what are the must haves for new owners?
Def getting Shaker and side blades just don't know what kind
I prefer the art on the Tilt Graphics art blades.
Quoted from DeadTed:
I've got my DP for a while now, wanted to show a couple of small mods I did.
Here's a replacement Lil Deadpool I installed, with a smaller and much better sculpted(imo) bobblehead by Hot Toys.
Next I've added Lady Death to the scoop, she was originally meant to be in the game, so I thought it makes sense to incorporate her back in. She's responsible for Hellhouse and Finish moves, so it's pretty fitting for her character imo.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
Where did you find the Lil' Deadpool? I like that one.
Quoted from HighProtein:
Impending doom on my aftermarket plunger, attack of the smack happy customers, some can't be trained the simple etiquette of not smacking a plunger end into pieces eventually...[quoted image][quoted image]
If any of my machines had made $11k I would replace the shooter rod every week if I needed to My Deadpool has made $250 :p
Quoted from vireland:
Slightly, but the main difference is the disco multiball light show that's absent on the Pro that can't be duplicated with existing mods. The mods that are out are a poor approximation of the Prem/LE function, but I don't think they can be improved because they're just triggering off one point to turn the ball on. Disco Loops and Disco Multiball is one of the best things about the Prem/LE. Wacky and fun.
Premium/LE also has red controlled GI.
Quoted from Devinsupertramp:
I just got the Deadpool Premium yesterday, stoked for it! The one issue I have is with the deadpool plastic hammock it comes with, the add on. I want to add it to where it is in the pro version, but the screws it come with don't actually fit into the holes, the holes are to small. I have those two pictures attached. Any tips? I looked up other photos online and it looks like the Pro version uses different screws than the ones it comes with. Any advice would be greatly appreciated.

If you add this it will block the spotlight that is on bedazzler pointing at the disco ball.
Quoted from Chisox:
Just said the same thing after playing 4 or 5 games tonight. I’ve had this game for almost three months and I still smile the whole time I play. It’s not the honeymoon phase anymore where it’s all hyperbole, this game is amazing.
I feel like I have hit the jackpot with my last two NIB games (Iron Maiden Prem and Deadpool Prem). I usually get tired of games relatively quickly, but these two keep bringing me back for more.
Quoted from Shapeshifter:
Are they vinyl? Tempted!
Also wondering with this product - once fitted, are they stuck on the game forever or would they peel off if they got damaged and you needed to replace?
They will peel off if you need them to but will stay in place until then. I have the same ones and I think they look great.
Team ups are key to knocking out the 3 main battles quickly. I make sure I have Dazzler and Wolverine ready before starting a mode. Makes all of them pretty easy and can usually get a disco mode going as well to stack.
The ball will divert into the pops on the premium in any of the battles if a disco mode isn't running I am pretty sure.
I looked at mine closely that is on location and there are zero problems on mine. No chipping, pooling etc.
