Transformers (Premium/LE) (Stern, 2011)

Added: April 18th, 2015 Ended: April 29th, 2015
Condition: HUO - Documented (Home Used Only)

Item description

Stern Transformers LE #230 (Combo). Bought from Trent NIB, original owner, HUO (except for being at PATZ). November 2011 manufacture date.

Notables:

- Shaker
- Flipper Fidelity complete speaker upgrade
- Cliffy shooter lane kickout protectors
- Freshly cleaned playfield
- New white rubber
- New balls

It has about a half-dozen LED flashers in the game and a couple of orange LED's by Bumblebee. Flashers add a little pop to the game, but I don't think it's overly done.

Gate on Ironhide playfield has been removed. Removed gate comes with game.

Game has an unfinished Megatron mod (see pics). It's currently static and does not move. Has the LED from the stock Megatron in the figure and it lights the eyes. I have the original Megatron figure and parts should the buyer not like the mod and wants to revert to the original.

The bad:

Decal wrinkling. The pictures show it pretty good. The worst one being the front-right leg as the decals have gotten brittle and cracked. The others are less severe. The game does come with replacement decals from Stern, however, they were not packed right and had a dent when rolled up. One does have a small tear, and they may be brittle like the ones on the cabinet due to age. They may be usable, but I can't guarantee it.

Overall:

Game plays great. Has the Optimus Prime fix so he triggers easier. Occasionally the Megatron trough gets backed-up (which I believe there is a fix for), but it's never been a big enough issue for me to look into. Just selling to shore up my finances; I will miss the game. If you can get get past the decal wrinkling, it's a really nice example of a TFLE.

Asking $4750

Located in SW Michigan/Michiana (Jones, MI 49061).

More/specific pictures available upon request. Any questions, please ask.

Would rather have a local sale, but I'm not opposed to shipping as long as buyer takes care of logistics.

Thanks,

Chris

Thank you.

I truly enjoy this game and get sucked into it. It will kick your butt and have you come back for more (kind of like IM, but on a different level).

I never got it hooked up to a sub, but I bet it's awesome. The Flipper Fidelity speaker setup does a pretty good job; I bought that before I knew about hooking Pins up to subs.

How do you add a sub woofer?

I've never done it personally, but a buddy just runs speaker wire from the sub in the cabinet to a powered subwoofer usually placed under the game. Mind you, the key word is "powered" subwoofer.

Others with more experience might be able to offer more information.

Thanks, I will look in to this more. I still like my TF Decipticons.

Nope, you nailed it! Although I do recommend soldering the wire connections instead of aligator clips. Powered subs (many pinheads love the Polk 10" powered sub) add a great fun factor to games. I actually just picked up a TFLE yesterday and need to do this!

GLWS! Fun game.

What is the Optimus Prime fix?

Highly underrated game.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

Highly underrated game.

Underneath the playfield, the switch that registers the hits on Optimus Prime; you can add washers between the switch and the playfield where it's mounted. It requires a less forceful hit to trigger a hit on Optimus Prime. Made a huge difference in the game experience to me and players.
