Really enjoying Deadpool Pro so far, but think it's a really poorly lit game. I swapped out all the GI bulbs and added some spotlights. The difference is night and day. Highly recommended. First pic is the before shot. Last pic is the after. And the others show side by side.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Any of your bulbs that don’t play nice with spike? I thought there was some issues with putting aftermarket LEDs in spike games from time to time depending on the bulbs.

I know of an issue with a particular socket on Ghostbusters that doesn't like to have an Opmax bulb in it. But it's only one particular socket (in one of the slings)...and only Opmax.

Haven't heard of issues with standard bulbs. Stern is using nearly identical bulbs. For years they've been using 2SMD clear natural white (ie: cool white) in all games, though for Deadpool they used a combination of clear natural white, frosted natural white, and clear red. I swapped out everything with 2SMD Frosted Sunlight.

Because of Spike, we've also had to rectify all of our Matrix stuff...so for now, do mention if you're using any of that in Spike games so we can make sure you're getting the newest (rectified) stock.

Quoted from Midway-Man:

Thats interesting i played a Pro on location and was wondering where those frosted GI bulbs came from. I thought the operator might have put them in because of the poor lightning. So you are saying they came like this from factory? Can you take a picture. Im curious what manufacturer they are using.

The first time I've seen Stern use any frosted bulbs was in the backpanel of Iron Maiden. The second time I've seen Stern use any frosted bulbs is in the slingshots and backpanel of Deadpool. Came that way from the factory.

"Stern 6.3V" is etched into the base of the bulb, but it's so faint that I can't get a good picture.

I'm into lighting the orbits and the center spinner for the team-up, then starting a mode. If you have those three, Sabretooth will be dead in two or three shots, and you'll have ~100m if you make the finishing shot.

I had one game around 800m, but it was a fluke. I'm usually around 100-200m, and getting over 300m is a pretty good game.

Quoted from trk12fire:

So people are just getting Deadpool machines in and playing them. I have pinball machines in a theater and debating on a Deadpool vs Iron Maiden. Obviously Deadpool's theme fits the theater better. However, I know Iron Maiden is a great game. So can Deadpool compete with Iron Maiden? Which should I buy? How good is Deadpool?

Iron Maiden IMO is one of the best games of all time (yes, I know it's early to say that). A majority of people I talked to loved it within their first few games.

Deadpool seems generally liked, but not loved. I think it's fun. Fantastic sound and art. Easy to understand gameplay.

Earnings wise: it took about 4 months for my Iron Maiden to go from a top earning game down to an average earning game. I'd consider that "fine", but nothing to brag about. I have some games that have gone years earning well above average. Deadpool has only been out for 11 days, but it had a slightly stronger start than Iron Maiden. My guess is that it will take longer than 4 months to flatten out, because it's a stronger theme.

TL;DR If you're buying for the game, get Iron Maiden. If you are buying to earn money, get Deadpool.

I've only ever seen a Pro in person. They used a lot of red lighting in the GI along the sides. Do the Premium and LE have the same GI lighting as the Pro, or do they have additional bulbs so they can switch the GI color at certain times (like some past games have done: Metallica, TWD, and others)?

Have the add-a-ball rules changed in multiballs? Seems like I had a time or two where my first mystery didn't award it...or maybe it's only available now in certain multiballs?
