Quoted from CrazyLevi:

That's horrible. Reads like a sick donkey bleating.
Elvira3 or E3 for you brevity types.
is much more pleasing to the eye.

HoH?

yikes. someone’s getting fired

#1104 60 days ago

I stand corrected, the are playfield pics.

#1105 60 days ago

Needs more inserts

#1106 60 days ago

No pops.

#1107 60 days ago

But there are gargoyles in inflattable swan and duck (?) tubes.

#1108 60 days ago

So far I am not impressed but im going to reserve judgment until they release a gameplay video

#1109 60 days ago

I knew it was missing something...

Quoted from luckymoey:

Lol. I can live without pops in that case.

#1111 60 days ago

Wide open pf. Very AFM.

#1112 60 days ago

Those don't look like Nordman ramps to me, which is very disappointing. I'm trying to let the playfield art slide right now because they always look so much better in person.

#1113 60 days ago

It looks like the crate on the left ramp side has a lid that lifts up the lock balls. The gargoyles look like they’ll behave like the boogeymen

#1114 60 days ago

Neither the theme or price are for me but it’s an interesting layout. It looks like it will have endless flow. Wide open playfield with all long shots. No idea if it will work and be fun but at least it’s new. It might be too repetitive, catch and shoot, catch and shoot... Without pops and so wide open there doesn’t seem like a lot to create chaos.

#1115 60 days ago

Really vanilla layout. But we all know what Lyman can do with any layout. Hopefully they’re not going for the current shallow code trend. Unfortunately that would also be true to the Elvira Trilogy.

#1116 60 days ago

I think the pops are behind the right ramp.

#1117 60 days ago

That's it? Not a typical Dennis n layout and cool ramps? . I'm sure it will shoot well and be fun (,especially with Lyman on code) but i dont see much there especially for the price point and how long its taken. Also im sure there's some neat toys /tricks we can't see but first glance is not super impressive.

#1118 60 days ago

Not impressed with the art or the way the game pops out to me. I am still excited to see the official reveal expla all the bells and whistles.

#1119 60 days ago

Well. I may be alone, but I fucking love it and can't wait to get it!

#1120 60 days ago

Surprised the playfield and art work are not more creative. Assumed Nordman and Freres had been working on the design for years. Seems like Stern is going to lean heavily on the animations, call-outs and rules.

#1122 60 days ago
Quoted from Micky:

[quoted image]

LOL... Play-field shots look exactly like MM

#1123 60 days ago

It appears that there are targets behind the crypt an the balls feeds the VUK that shoots the ball across to hit the targets and open the crate on the left ramp

#1124 60 days ago
Quoted from Micky:

[quoted image]

Boring fan layout. If I'm paying 8 grand I'd rather a SS. I'd rather a RZ plus a an EATPM.

#1125 60 days ago
Quoted from RobertWinter:

Not much room up there.

#1126 60 days ago
Quoted from TheGunnett:

Yeh, that left area above the drops also looks like it could do something to interrupt the plastic return. Doubt that Vuk on the right could shoot all the way over to hit this targets, but maybe. Here’s hoping the Playfield can stand up to it.

#1127 60 days ago

The side art appears to feature film titles and includes this guy! I’m guessing the display will feature clips from these movies. Very cool.

Quoted from SKWilson:

This is a guaranteed buy for Elvira fans regardless. I’m not really so am just looking at it as another new release. I think they’ll still sell heaps.

Also, if that’s the LE with the red trim, that’s also really vanilla compared to B66LE. Just looks like a normal Stern LE, but we are hearing B66Le pricing. And 400 LE’s not 240 like B66? So more units, less bling but the same price as B66le. That might be a tough sell.

#1129 60 days ago

Even though people are thinking there will be no pro model this layout looks exactly like what a Stern Pro usually looks like. There has to be more on the other models or this just looks like a typical Stern ho hum layout.

#1130 60 days ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Not much room up there.

At first was thinking the pops would be there too but really just looks like enough room for a couple lanes maybe?

For years this was going to be an instabuy for me.... Not sure after seeing the playfield … If no pro I'll probably be out...

#1131 60 days ago

Any high res playfield pics out there?

#1132 60 days ago

Hard Times

#1133 60 days ago

Think I'm still looking for a very clean SS

#1134 60 days ago
Quoted from TheGunnett:

I think you meant like the frogs/leapers from SS.

Quoted from Squeakman:

That’s clearly the LE playfield. We’ll have to wait a couple days for the details and better pics. I don’t like the cabinet art on the Premium (my wife said it reminds her of Cirqus Voltaire).

On the playfield my first reaction is the ramps are disappointing. Nothing iconic like the water slide or honey beast ramp. And the mansion better do some cool stuff if we are indeed looking at BM66 price points. The Batman turntable is a formidable multistage mechanism. Unclear if the mansion is more than a fancy sculpt. And it does look a little too wide open.

I’m expecting the code will be deep (because Lyman). But my biggest concern is whether these games will ship with the playfield clear problem fixed. I hear that Stern considers minor playfield pooling is acceptable and that is unacceptable to me. I still expect LE slots will sell quickly so I’m going to have make a tough call next week - is there enough here and is the playfield crapshoot worth the risk? I’d love to have the entire trilogy but a defective playfield would bother and upset me tremendously.

#1136 60 days ago

I think the LE pf looks pretty barren to be honest. Looks like a standard fan layout and more what I would expect in the PRO model.

Funniest thing out of all this is the Spooky Haunted House Party name for Danesi #2. Make you wonder which cam first?

#1137 60 days ago
Quoted from splitskull:

That’s what I was thinking too.

#1138 60 days ago

Fan. I’m out.

#1139 60 days ago

what crate!? i don’t see one anywhere. i do see the drop target to the left of the staircase ramp but no crate behind left ramp. also i see a kick out on the left of the game behind the three targets. possible lock kick out/subway? maybe the deadhead opens and balls go through there to kick out? remember this is a photo someone took with there phone and put on pinside. not official press release photos and no official details

MJR

#1140 60 days ago

Since all images of Elvira are cartoon, I am thinking the display is going to be cartoon based as well. Such a small representation of Elvira on the playfield as well, it's a bit disappointing.

The crate is in the middle of the left ramp. You can see a cutout for where the lid will probably open.

#1142 60 days ago

Oh boy that looks ummmm, ooooohhh, yeah......well I'm OUT!

Super LE $50K by Christmas!

#1143 60 days ago

Elvira fan

Sorta looks like a home version of MMr

Time will tell.

Weird eject on the right?

also if you look really closely you can see a top gate diverter and the plastic and metal skirt of a pop bumpers behind right ramp

#1145 60 days ago

I am disappointed by the layout for now, toys could change that.

#1146 60 days ago

Another boring, uninspired fan layout with a flashy title. I really, really wanted this one, but I just can't do another fan layout like this.

And for that reason, I'm out!

#1147 60 days ago

No more yellow apron cards

Awesome, I'm in

#1148 60 days ago

right VUK looks like it shoots across the playfield into the trunk

MJR[quoted image]

We can see the end of two pops, the one that you show, and an orange one, on the other side of the ramp. There must be a third behind the crypt.

Been there, done that, got the T-shirt.
