Super Stoked about this title. What are some things you guys want to be added to the current code?

Call outs from the band would be exciting..... And some of this discussed already in other thread(s).

Dead post is about as cool as it gets, but this theme is going to be NUTS ! So excited.

There’s a rush to become an Owners Club thread OP because it goes on forever and gives certain folks some sense of unearned entitlement. It’s one step above saying “first” in a YT comment section…. but not a big step.

I didn't even know that... I don't post too much here and never have started a thread (that I remember) in over 10 years. that was the rush for me, lol.

I recreated the UFO guy and gave away my 3D file for free if anyone wants it.

Be on lookout for these toys coming soon from some modders. Hopefully they don't charge stupidly or I might step in and undercut them. If anyone can measure the length/width of the ufo and post or PM that would be great so everyone knows the proper size.

You’re the man! I can’t stand those “modders” that sell 3D printed items for ridiculous prices.

Ok if this is the real club (pinside been going clubbing like 50 cent) I'm in for a pro! Will be my first pro, just my luck they changed the build order from first to last now go figure!

You will be so excited with it. !

#31 11 months ago

If anyone has access to a FF (any model), if you are willing to ping me and take a quick measurement so I can work up a shooter lane protector, I would greatly appreciate it. I think I see a hole drilled in the shooter lane, but the pics I have access to are fuzzy.

#32 11 months ago

I’m super excited about this pin. Have an LE on order and just sold another musical pin (the only one in my collection) to buy this one. Looks really well done and fun.
Headed to the Texas Pinball Expo next weekend and really looking forward to playing FF and The Bog Lebowski, both in my basement soon!

#33 11 months ago

Deposit for a pro and so stoked. Been a fan of the band since day one and love the layout and art. One of my other pins is a Jurassic home edition so I already dig jacks layout style. Really can’t wait to unbox it. Being told by my distro end of this month or early April. Pinwoofer kit arriving tomorrow.

Hi all I don't' have a foo fighters (yet? hopefully
but I designed some flipper protectors for the pro and premium model designed to look kind of like the LE's but yet with the texture and color of the normal rails. I've attached some pictures of it as well as a silver version that I did for 007 that shows how the silver looks

https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1463-arcade-cabinetscom/08017-stern-pinball-flipper-button-wear-protectors-2-for-rush
I also have some magnetic hinge cover art, they are magnet backed with a hole in the middle just pop them on they "auto center"

https://pinside.com/pinball/market/shops/1463-arcade-cabinetscom/07958-2-x-magnetic-foo-fighters-hinges-logo

thanks for your time and enjoy your what looks to be an amazing game in so many ways!

thank you! does anyone know when these games will actually be available? has anyone got theirs yet? this looks like such a fun game.

#38 11 months ago

This is a banger! Definitely can get fast paced but the pro is fun for what you get. I can see pinheads putting up some bigger numbers.
