Quoted from javagrind888:

My fear is that Elvira will be their experiment into adding more movies as DLC on a subscription. It's rife with unreleased content. I'd pay for permanent DLC for the game, but not with any yearly subscription fees.

Speaking of “rife with unreleased content”…a Munsters DLC that included 30 new modes based upon the original episodes would actually make me want that game. The theme, art and layout are awesome - but man it needs some serious code love.

Just joined the club and I'm dialing the pin in now. Question, is the crypt supposed to be partly open like this when the game is off? Or should it be completely closed?

They just screwed the things up when they made them and they're all like that

Is it SUPPOSED to be open? No
Is that what Stern considers normal? Yes
Can it be fixed? Yes, but only with a lot of work and a bit of luck. (I didn’t bother)

It was a certain run and those that followed afterwards, and yes it kinda sucks, and no you won't really notice when playing, and also no it's not worth the huge PITA to fix it

The only way it could properly be fixed is with a new opto board that re-positions the middle position opto.

I'd buy a new board if Stumblor makes a replacement.

I've never even considered trying to fix mine. It honestly doesn't bother me in the slightest. The crypt looks just fine as is. Its just to be expected when you have a game with so much mechanical action in it like Elvira.

Quoted from Halfwasted:

Call for price = 15k plus.

is this the actual price ?

#9862 36 days ago

I cant imagine 15 k would buy it. Be interesting to see how high this sells for

#9863 36 days ago
Quoted from Hayfarmer:

I'm guessing..... 18k

#9864 36 days ago

At least it has an appropriate shooter rod. Maybe they squeeze out another Haunt for it?

#9865 36 days ago

Stern is really ringing the register on this one. That being said, I want the dagger shooter rod.

#9866 36 days ago

I'm guessing 20k.

#9867 36 days ago

How the hell do I buy one of these?

#9868 36 days ago

It will be real interesting, because they based the number of games in the slot between the LE and SE. So will the pricing be above SE?

#9869 36 days ago

Price was 15k apparently and somehow they are sold out.

#9870 36 days ago

Didn't see this one coming. Wonder if they will have one at expo to check out.

If they made that shooter rod as an acessory that anyone could buy, they would sell a ton of them.

#9871 36 days ago

And like that, Stern pisses all over their customers with a piece of cum stained couch!

#9872 36 days ago

Premium still looks better.

#9873 36 days ago

I was quoted over $25,000 on the phone
I’ll keep my LE I just t like the purple lol

#9874 36 days ago

It says it comes with insider connected installed so I was hoping we'd finally see how the new apron art looks. But if you zoom in on the flyer pic it still shows the old apron style.

#9875 36 days ago

as an owner of the game I would like to say. WTF!

#9876 36 days ago

I presume the pics are just mock-ups because there is no QR reader on the right side.

So - do any LE or SLE owners think this new edition devalues their game?

SE owners yes but LE owners are looking good if the asking price is north of 15k.

I’m confused by the WTF with the attached photo. Are you happy or pissed by this news?

#9880 35 days ago

Do you think they will do another run of toppers? On the same note, 25k and no topper…

#9881 35 days ago

honestly, as nice as it looks, i just want that dagger shooter for my premium

#9882 35 days ago

Just saw this on FB - no idea what happened but it was announced with no price and sold out in seconds lol. Whats the point in announcing it

#9883 35 days ago
Quoted from djsolzs:

To give Pinside something to complain about….

There are distributors that have them. Call them. They will tell you $28k

#9885 35 days ago

Cant disagree!!!

#9886 35 days ago

I’m not sure if the new game has a shaker. For the price it should.

#9887 35 days ago

If any distros still have one of these, hit me up.

#9888 35 days ago

Confirmed 25K MSRP, as much as I love this game wife doesn't been pondering selling it for the right price then this news hit lol

Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

With the apparent prices it should include a shaker, topper, and personal meet and greet from Cassandra.

#9890 35 days ago
Quoted from BigT:

Looking back, it makes the Batman66 LE with topper, batwing armor, and shaker at 10K quite a bargain.

Upset.

Wonder if we might get more code. Game is pretty full, but more haunts would be nice.

No more haunts...! Polish what is already in the game. Fix the font issues, make house multiballs more fun and more beast booster.

In the past Stern has saved completed code updates for when a new run of a game was announced to help drive sales. Maybe we'll get something with this along with the Insider Connected update.

Quoted from JakePG:

Insider Connected update for sure. I would not expect on anything else.

How about Stern make the Premium I ordered back in April.

It does look good with the purple armor though.

Quoted from RikeIsland:

The red on the LE/SLE looks better and is more appropriate - ie "blood". I think the purple side rails clash with the red side art. Shooter is nice though.

#9899 35 days ago

I was quoted $28,999 but they are throwing in free shipping...isnt that nice!

#9900 35 days ago

As an LE owner, that was my immediate reaction. But if the LE40 games are really in the $15k-$25k range I don’t see it hurting LE value.

I would like to see what the new hyper-chrome side art looks like, but the changes to the art don’t wow me. I don’t mind the 40th anniversary logo; not sure if it should be on the translite or the backbox sides but not both (and there should be more new art).

Love the new shooter rod, but the new “extras” don’t impress me at all. The autographed book is still readily available so you are paying a lot for an autographed trading card and her signature on the COA. And while my initial impression of the the paranormal purple is favorable, I think the LE red fits the game better.

199 units seems high, but given 50 SLEs sold at 15k+, I still don’t see that devaluing 400 LEs. I think this would be welcome by all current Elvira owners.
