I've got an LE on order!
Sorry - I couldn't wait - I've been waiting for 3 years LOL

#3 10 months ago

So, I do think there should be a category for this is my first one, but I plan on collecting all three one day.
Because, I totally do... And I know some of the fears that this release will cause the other two to inflate. But, I think that might be right in the short term, but long term of 5-10 years is I think the prices will settle down somewhat.
I do think their will be a bit of a price adjustment when the bubble bursts. I don't predict the doom and gloom pins will become useless thought that some hold. I think pins will always hold some modicum of value...
And even if they do go up in price. I think somethings are worth paying for.
A the Elvira Triple set would be a nice one to own.

Anyway... I paid my deposit last week. Can't wait to get the new machine. It's going to be sweet!!!!

Hey guys got mine Wednesday. #79. Ignore that other trash thread please. Its about fucking sad what this site has come to, anyhow.

Let me talk about this game. What i love and why i think its gonna be better than Scared stiff and Batman 66.

Layout is great its very much like medieval madness but you got a differnt bash toy and the house is killer guys. Issues though is the left ramp will airball and drain like crazy. Me and a buddy made an air guard but all.means you can make your own. All the shots are great, smooth and the variety of exits is a blast

Code super good humor and i see what their doing and current code is .86 alot of content thete. Guys its lyman. Oh the hand of fate wheel on the screen is a trubute to scared stiff and is funner than i thought. Im on the beta code lyman gave me and it added more and fixed content from the stream including the call outs and more elvira clips. Oh shaker isnt programmed.

The playfield has the art away from.the posts on the whole game so hopefully they got that chipping issue settled.

Now I'm not saying you gotta have them but i put pinatadiums in and i changed alot of the GI to purple. Main reason is the sky behind the house are white and it looked silly and not spooky. I wanted that effect but i understand they did it to have vision.

Im excited for the mods and guys this game is gonna be special. I was an early buyer for Batman 66 and lyman did something special. Im expectig that

Thanks very much for sharing. My wife and I are excited to get ours, we will be waiting for a while as we are in Australia. Look forward to you posting more positivity about the game!

I find the negativity on Pinside extremely disappointing. I refuse to let this negativity spoil my love for the hobby.

#13 10 months ago

Awaiting mine also. Why do people complain about EVERYTHING. All games are good. Some better than others. I’m excited.

Rise above it. Don’t let the negative Hater BS ruin the awesome experience

Lots of hate pumpers out there

#15 10 months ago

Just paid in full for the premium than going to have Steve at pinball refinery bring it to the next level with custom powder coat and lighting effects. No the hard part waiting for premiums to ship.

The game looks great. Can you please elaborate on the comment you made about the shaker? From the sound of it the shaker isn't doing anything at the moment.

Yes it doesnt react in the code

Quoted from Robertstone0407:

That's surprising. Did Stern tell you that? I would think the shaker would be doing something even in the early stages of the code. Maybe it is a setting you over looked?

I ordered the premium too. Who cares in this case, premium, LE, SE. all the same game There is very little that excites me more than getting a new game in the box. It’s so awesome. I can’t stand when people rip games. Let’s be excited!!!

#20 10 months ago

Paid in full also. Sold Simpson’s party. And added some of my cash... had Simpson’s for years. Saw that haunted house...and I had to have it

#21 10 months ago

LE looks really nice from the pictures owners are posting. The powder coat looks great too!

In regards to code depth I've read some people post that theres 26 Haunt modes, other that theres 6 plus a bonus one. Just curious what the story is as I'm interested in a premium but really want the game to have the code depth that Batman 66 has.

#22 10 months ago

It's interesting that one of the first LE's out is #79, funky how the numbering works. Is it even possible for someone to get LE #1, or is that usually reserved for a Stern employee? Anyway I've paid for my LE, should be getting it in a few days and I'll post here when I do. I mentioned that I planned on live streaming it on Twitch on the other thread but it got lost in all the fud there, so figured I'd mention it here as well.

It was the same on batman 66. Light shows and shakers are like the last thing lyman codes. I agree on the premium being the best deal. I personally am Vain and like LE action lol

Well now I feel like a beta tester. Maybe Stern should put us on the payroll. Still waiting for a ship date on my LE.

#25 10 months ago

Damn this game plays pretty fast

Would you like to elaborate a little for us. Lol.
I really just want to hear more about it.

#27 10 months ago

I’m hoping all owners really give an honest opinion? Thinking of buying an LE
But after Munsters I’m hesitating it until I play it !

#29 10 months ago

I received my Elvira Le yesterday. So far I’m having issues with the ball getting stuck in the castle/garage and the door not opening in the crypt. The machine runs unsuccessfully thru a few ball searches and eventually game over. Hopefully an easy fix but disappointed I’ve spent more time removing stuck balls than playing.

On a much better note, I also took deliver of a JP le and it’s awesome.

Wow! You need to change your Pinside name to "new-in-boxman."

#31 10 months ago

Just received word that my LE has shipped. Got #110.

#32 10 months ago

Just got LE #2!

FYI - it costs extra for special #'s but I'm an Elvira fan - she's worth it!

#33 10 months ago

Very anxious to hear the owner reviews. Been on the fence about trying to grab an LE.

#34 10 months ago

Congrats to all the new owners!

So I have to ask... those of you that have the game in your possession, is there *any* blistering around the posts? I believe someone stated there was no artwork around the posts.

Would love some detailed pictures.

#35 10 months ago

34 posts and only two follow the OP’s requests. The other thread is a joke, horrible and not worth reading. I really hope this one stays better. My LE comes next week.

#36 10 months ago

Took a chance without playing the game an picked up an LE , comes within a week
I hope I like the Game !

Ok I'm interested. Just how much extra does Stern get for applying a certain number to a machine?

#38 10 months ago

Code is out

#39 10 months ago

As long as the game is cherry after unboxed I never cared about the number
1-400 says it all

#40 10 months ago
Quoted from Manic:

$250 for numbers below 25
I think it’s $150 for anything else

Thanks never knew that. That's a nice little extra revenue stream

#42 10 months ago

Initial code release 0.83. Did anyone notice it's 6.2 GB in size? That's enormous!

By comparison -
Munsters LE - 1.8 GB.
DP LE - 2.2 GB
B66 LE - 3.8 GB
SW LE - 4.0 GB

There is going to be TONS of content in EHOH!

I’m guessing it’s due to the video clips.

Don’t read much into file size. Pre 1.0 releases of Batman had a couple of GB more than what’s in the code now (mostly unused video footage). I presume Lyman loaded up everything he *might* use and will cut it down later.

Quoted from whitey:

I actually always preferred the later number presuming that they were assembled in order and they didn’t know what they were doing with the first few and by the time they got to the number 400 they were pretty good at assembling that model. I just within the last couple days read a post where apparently Stern has the LE numbers loose in a box and they just grab them as they go in no order whatsoever so that kills that theory lol.

#46 9 months ago

So what one distributor got their allotment? Where are the rest?

#47 9 months ago

Is it fun?

#48 9 months ago

Just got "the call!" Delivery tomorrow! Yea!

Thursday, October 10, 10:40am CT: Machine is here and in the game room ready to be un-boxed. Video to follow (hopefully).

#49 9 months ago

Joining the club! Mine is getting delivered tomorrow
