Still waiting on a more accurate ship date for our GB LE. Shooting for beginning of May but TBD at AYCE Gogi in Van Nuys, CA. Will run from 6:00pm-CL (well be playing pinball all night!!) It will be cosponsored by Ballast Point or New Belgium Beer with drink specials. GB LE will remain on location after the launch.

I'll be holding one of those "unofficial" launch parties since we'll be playing on an LE at a later date. For those that can attend an official party, definitely go. Stern launch parties are a blast.

We received the two translites in the tube like you did...but did you also get a second box with all the flyers and plastics, etc.? Last time we did, plus a trophy, but not this time.

I was at the rink yesterday and was told I had 2 packages. Wasn't sure what that was about until it hit me later (I also had a hockey game) that it was likely to be from Stern since that's the Address of the launch party. This is my first NIB and launch party, so was pretty excited to see what arrived. I'm sure the participants will also be excited to see what will be available.

#27 3 years ago

Trophies are on their way still don worry

Can't wait! Thanks for putting this together!

Yes, we got a 2nd box this time.

Has anyone received an LE yet? Talking to my local op, he's got an LE on order and doesn't want to schedule a party until he actually has it on hand.

As far as we know, no LEs have even been assembled yet. Also, the launch parties can't be held on an LE, I have asked about that.

#33 3 years ago

Was anyone contacted by local GB groups? I got an email from the location owner where I have my machines and will be hosting my launch party. He was contacted by the leader of the Tucson GB chapter(?) of the AZ Ghostbusters. They were looking for info about attending. I guess they are a charity awareness group and GB costumes is how they do it.

The bad news is that I still don't have shipping info from my distributor who has tried to get the info from Stern several times. Thursday might have to be rescheduled...
