Quoted from batman66SLE:

As a point of reference, I paid $14,000 for a Batman 66 SLE which I thought was exorbitant 5 years ago. That included personalized shout out from Adam West, “Saul, get the batphone!” which makes me smile every time I hear it. Compare that to the underwhelming features on Elvira 199 for $15k above the Batman SLE? Just buy two large pillows and save yourself some money.

Would have been cool to get Elvira to have a personalized message like Adam did one SLE.

You are smart for spending $15k on a pinball machine.

Today, someone else is dumb for spending $25k on one.

Tomorrow, that person will be smart when a $35k game is released.

Everybody is happy!

Admit it, you only clicked this thread to watch us bitch about the new overpriced game, and throw in your two cents.

Not hating, it’s the same reason I click all the overpriced marketplace and cross my fingers they are linked to a thread. Just a fun observation.

That said, I legit need someone to powder coat those sexy legs for me. Glitter and purple are a win win.

#9954 2 years ago
Quoted from venom112:

They are testing the waters here.

I agree - and if they get away with it without any complaining from buyers, they’ll just keep doing this crap - JP 30th anniversary limited edition, Deadpool 5th anniversary limited edition, etc.

The most maddening part of it all is that they are making the backlog worse by doing this!

#9955 2 years ago

Anyone who buys this really needs their head examined. Seriously it’s a damn game. Glad I will not be inside the pinball bubble when it burst. $28k is plain full retard mode.

#9956 2 years ago

I'm not a fan of the big 40th Anniversary logo on the BG and not sure about the colour(color) of this $30K edition. I would like to see this in person but the original LE/SE with its whole package just seems more Elvira theme appropriate to me. I expect that 199 otherwise will largely disagree.

#9957 2 years ago

I just hope building this boondoggle will unlock the backordered Premiums sooner. My order with my distro needs to get here sooner.

I mean, only making 199 playfields seems dumb when they could make 500.

#9958 2 years ago

JJP got away with the Ruby Red edition of WoZ after Emerald City was supposed to be the WoZ LE.
EHoH LE40 is Stern's Rudy Red. If all 199 sell out maybe Stern will make a Yellow Brick Road equivalent.

I personally like my red powder coated LE just fine (and think it fits the theme better than the purple).
Dennis Nordman is with American now and Lyman Sheats is with CGC. Will LE40 still have their signatures?

Quoted from jfh:

I doubt it. The panel with the signature sticker is where the IC QR reader goes.

Then that's another reason to prefer my red powder coated LE. And frankly, the red side rails look good representing dripping blood, but the dripping purple side rails make no sense to me.

#9961 2 years ago

Personally I prefer the signatures over the IC QR reader. Don’t see a need to be plugged into the world of Stern.

Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

This whole thing got me thinking - what’s the best way to protect those signatures ?

Quoted from Mad_Dog_Coin_Op:

Uggggh, I truly do appreciate what Stern does, but that QR shit is beyond silly. There is absolutely no reason to require that eyesore on the apron, ON ANY GAME. I utterly DETEST many of the business practices of JJP, and hate giving them credit, but what is wrong with doing what they did where all I need to do is buy a 17 dollar wifi dongle, plug it in, and scan the QR code on the game screen?

The scorbit integration on my Dialed in is FANTASTIC. Huge swing and a miss on adding that monstrosity, who the hell wants that on their game?

I feel dirty bitching in the owners thread, but this whole thing is just a cash grab.

#9964 2 years ago

I’m more than thrilled with my premium I got for 7200 way back when the game was released. These prices are insane now

#9965 2 years ago

I was just seeing if there are any Jpop jokes yet?

#9966 2 years ago
Quoted from coasterguy:

So did my autographed LE just increase in value then? I mean.[quoted image]

Why do you have Elvis's signature on your game? Oh wait, that's Elvira....

#9967 2 years ago

They finally made a good shooter rod and it’s on the one version I will never own. Sigh.

#9968 2 years ago
Quoted from beltking:

Yeah also got 28,999 quote. Is that just nuts or reasonable for 199 made and will keep that value or go up? Calling around to other dealers bc some maybe $25k. I was hoping for 19-20 range but that isn't going to happen. Think dealers are making big money on these.

Hoping for the $19-20k range?!?!? What!

#9969 2 years ago
Quoted from UnholySpectacle:

I wasn't a fan of the Creepo the Clown shooter rod at first, but he's starting to grow on me.

#9970 2 years ago
Quoted from UnholySpectacle:

I'm sure there will be 3rd party shooter rods that look even better than Stern's. Modders gonna mod and Stern can't trademark a jeweled dagger. Just gotta make the mod a hair different than Stern's.

Quoted from UnholySpectacle:

There's a printable 3d model of the dagger on the Thingiverse website... someone will mod a shooter

#9972 2 years ago
Quoted from Beowulfz07:

I can’t watch your podcast as all I see is the Elvira machine and I can’t get one, it’s like looking through the window of a restaurant when you’re starving

You're welcome to come over and play it mate. I'll provide pizza and pinball and you can play Elvira until you're sick of it.

#9973 2 years ago

Everybody knows this is just a HUGE cash grab for Stern. Just wait, if this one sells (which sounds like it did) they will make another limited edition LE (lesbian edition) to celebrate Cassandra coming out of the closet and it will sell out too for twice the money.

JJ did it with the WOZ editions, even after telling everyone the emerald city one WAS the special edition. Just saying.

#9974 2 years ago

Holy hell! I go away from Pinside for ONE DAY and *this* happens!

I'm personally glad that EHOH is worthy of another limited run. Too rich for my blood but this version has an interesting look. The one gripe I do have is they changed the color of Elvira's couch on the cabinet sides to purple and any true Elvira fan can tell you it's supposed to be red. I understand why they did it but it's just plain wrong.

I had the opportunity to buy an SLE when they first came out and opted for the LE as I didn't see 5K of added value in the SLE. I certainly don't see 15K+ of added value in the 40LE.

#9975 2 years ago
Quoted from Rdoyle1978:

Take the signature panel out, put it in a plastic bag and install the incredible docquest video mod instead.

Careful, I may take you up on that
You need to see Jagman and get some pics of his machines, he has my fully restored TOM and WH20, plus he has quite a few other nice machines, he’d be great on your podcast too.
I do have a premium on order but god knows if and when it will turn up.
I still wouldn’t swop my Mando for it, just my opinion but having had almost 40 pins in 3 years Mando is the best pin I’ve had / played

#9977 2 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

I don’t understand what does that mean, if they have games available why wouldn’t they give you a quote?

I was told by my distro that he is not allowed to post a price of any kind on the website or in store or he is in violation of some agreement he has with Stern. I believe it. He would only tell me that the price is probably going to be in the range of the Beatles Diamond Edition, which told me $20K+.

#9978 2 years ago

Still no adult mode?

Quoted from Beowulfz07:

I guess we will agree to disagree then, I feel the exact opposite I Much prefer Elvira over Mando!

#9980 2 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

To be fair, I haven’t played Elvira HOH, but I want one, I should have said that at the moment I wouldn’t swop Mando for it, but hopefully I will get one soon and have both, then I can see how I feel about them side by side

I don't see more than 1k of added value. I coud maybe see doing a 25th or 50th anniversary but 40th anniversary?... lol.

This is just a big cash grab by Stern. It wouldn't be quite as bad if not for the fact there are already a line of people, many with cash deposits for premiums, already waiting in libe and being put off until middle of next year.

#9982 2 years ago

So the only space I have where I can put a pinball is in the living room, and unfortunately, it's right next to 2 windows. My wife isn't too keen on the idea of closing those blinds all day, so my compromise is to make sure the machine is covered and protected from the UV when we aren't playing it. Sucks, but it's better than letting the artwork get ruined. At any rate, I'm wondering what you guys do to cover these things. I know I can get an actual pinball machine cover, but I think it would be cooler if I could get an Elvira cover specifically, since I can't have the machine looking all pretty and doing it's thing with the attract mode all the time.

I had the black covers from Marco for my stern’s when they were in sunlight. Not the easiest to remove but they did the job

Yeah I’m ashamed I let it bother me so much. I think what got me the most was how long folks have been waiting on premiums while they make announcements for new stuff.

Everyone deserves to enjoy this incredible game.

#9985 2 years ago

any information on tweaking the gargoyle leapers? the one in the right side of the house doesn't jump as well as the other 3.

thanks in advance

Pull it up and lightly wax it. Does not take much. Do not oil it! If it won't fall freely, may need to bend slightly.

You also can loosen the screw on the the metal piece the gargoyle rod goes through and adjust it side to side slightly I believe. This in addition to waxing the rod will help make those fuckers jump!

#9989 2 years ago

I’m in on the next run of premiums so obviously if they can make 199 LEs this year…they could have made 199 premiums. Now the premiums will get pushed to next year and I’m going nuts if the price gets increased

The game innuendoes were so tame, I didn’t even recognize it as an Elvira game :/

Get ready to wait for 2023. I bet mandos are pushed too

It's incredible because of the programming, artistry, sound and game design. Dennis, Lyman, Greg and Jeremy all did a great job on this game. Oh, and who can forget Elvira of course!

Mine have skewed sideways with ball hits since day one. I have tried everything to tighten them down and adjust them but at best I can typically only ever get 3 of the 4 to register a ball hit for the gargoyle switches and that 3 of 4 seems to change. I don't know why they wouldn't have used a round rod like in SS instead of a flat bar (4 edges) in a two stacked slots. Bizarre.

Cary just showed new Elvira 40th at expo on YouTube. Looks amazing!

Apparently they have no problem continuing to use those inner blades with a bunch of movies which aren’t even in the game

#9997 2 years ago

That things looks amazing. Damn!

#9998 2 years ago

The game is beautiful, would of been nice if the powder coated the coin door.

Just protype that will be different as well as apron.

You know what would have been amazing? Dressing up the playfield with a detailed house mold, the ramps that were pulled, detailed sculpts for the plastic covers, etc.

THAT would have been impressive for the price
