Just received notification from Automated that my LE is on the way. I am having it shipped to FUN!, my local distributor who will set it up and deliver it to my home. FUN! sold out of their allotment before I could get to them. Stern directed me to Automated who had one left and FUN! was great to help me receive it and get it to my upstairs game room. I should have it some time next week.

Is it possible a game sitting in 100 degrees is making the problem worse !?

All my other pins are perfect in the same conditions, so a defective playfield is going to be defective no matter what the conditions are it seems.

#655 3 years ago

Stern should offer a non-clear coated version. Then we just have to keep it waxed!

Trucking Co. just dropped off my Ghost BustersLE. It's number 175. It will be set up on Sun. the 8th. Oh happy day.

Is it just me but are most of the nib gble buyers very very very excited about receiving there gb,I was dancing around the room when I was told my game shipped and I have ordered a lot of nib games but never have been so very stoked like this,mabey the extra wait time but there is something special about this game

Yup. That and also because I have no pins currently!

Yep, I'm pretty F ing excited to be getting mine early next week!

#191 is here and setup! Playfield is 7/25 and machine date of manufacture is 8/1, playfield looks absolutely beautiful out of the box.

That can add up to a lot of work over time.

Quoted from Mato:

I was told my premium is on the waters and will land in Australia on the 19th woohooo can't wait

Maybe my theory about the boxed pins on the wall during that Gary stern interview being export premiums was right. Can they just build my game.
Im starting to get frustrated. Been told two weeks over three times. I don't think I will ever get a just released NIB again. For my first NIB waiting 5 months is not fun.

#663 3 years ago
Quoted from Beez:

Guessing they are sold out since the link doesn't work ........

They literally get them for a just a couple days and sell out. They will be back in again

Try again... Looks like they're back in stock. I just ordered my kit.

My GBLE # 182 landed today.

What was the deciding factor in not going LE with Metallica, KISS and GoT? KISS, especially, has a gorgeous LE (and one day the software to match, I hope).

That is the perfect line up. All great pins.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

they don't have a choice, its statutory.
Neil.

Yes that is true, but (I got the e-mail too) they clearly state there are rumours of a problem with the playfields. Acceptance is on your own risk regarding the playfileds but they will assist in all ways possible with getting the issue resolved. They will not change playfields for you or anything.

They also offer to cancel the order without cost and even to come to them, open up your game and inspect before accepting it.

In my opinion they were wise to do this, as they do not build these machines themselves and therefore have no infuence on the quality of the product. They have informed us about the issue and will help when there is a problem, but they clearly state beforehand that they cannot do a swap or a playfield swap at no cost. This is their good right and if the buyer chooses to accept that then - again in my opinion - have a good ground to not honor the normal warranty that we in Europe normally enjoy.

That said I did accept the agreement and I got my LE delivered last week. No ghosting anywhere yet and the shaker works overtime when getting to multiball. It is a great game and this time no one can complain that Stern has skimped on toys or features. The game is full of features and full of fun.

#669 3 years ago

I should have two more LE's landing here tomorrow. One to keep, one to sell (for an obscene profit). Delivered a couple already, beautiful game. Blast to play.

#670 3 years ago

Delivery set for tomorrow...finally!

Quoted from vireland:

I mostly purchase Premiums. I think the premiums give the best value vs price. I purchased LE for TWD because it was my first NIB and loved the look of the pin. I purchased and LE for GB because I believe that tis is going to be an extremely popular pin and and I like the unique look of it. If I was a collector when AC/DC or Metallica came out, I might have bought the LE on one or both of these.

Here is a question... If you had this collection and needed to sell one pin to purchase Stern's newest pin, a pin you really want, what pin would it be and why.

Sounds like you need to start a thread for that answer

Lots of variables in that question. For *me* that's easy because zombies do nothing for me - Walking Dead. But assuming I love horror/zombies, it would be a more challenging question. I haven't played the Premium Metallica, but the Pro did nothing at all for me and the music was crappier-sounding than KISS, so that seems likely. BUT if KISS never gets the polish it sorely needs, then that would be on the chopping block. However, if KISS does get the update(s) it needs and the Premium Metallica makes me forget not liking the Pro and its poor sound quality, then I'm down to GoT and Walking Dead, and back to kissing Walking Dead goodbye (assuming I've fixed the factory left orbit issue on the GoT) because I just don't like Zombies and maybe that bias comes through this simulation.

The only thing I really want from an LE is the mirrored backglass, but I was unprepared for how awesome the CABINET on the KISS LE is. I mean the KISS mirrored backglass is great, but that metallic/shiny base they screen the art over really makes the cabinet pop, and made me revise my thinking on the whole LE thing (which I generally view as a waste of money since the signature, numbering, certificates, etc mean nothing to me).

#675 3 years ago

Mine arrives Wednesday.

#676 3 years ago

Mine arrived Fri # 175. I set it up yesterday and everything looks GREAT. A GREAT pinball experience in my opinion

#677 3 years ago

My LE is supposed to ship today, I guess I wait for a call from the shipping company to set up a delivery?

#678 3 years ago
Quoted from Concretehardt:

My distributor sent me the tracking number and suggested that I wait for the shipping company to call, but I called the local terminal.

I'm glad I did. I gave them the tracking number and they made the arrangements to get it to my house on Wednesday. It may have been a day or two later had I not called. No big deal, but I didn't want it sitting around in the terminal any longer than it had to.

#679 3 years ago

Mine will be in house between 12-5 tomorrow. Giddy up.

#680 3 years ago

Wednesday for me but maybe able to pick up at terminal tomorrow night.

Did you check for ghosting inserts?

#683 3 years ago
Quoted from Flato:

this was right out the box. after playing it the entire edge all around the insert is ghosted now. built 8-1 but gotta lift playfield to see the date on that. not gonna worry just gonna keep playing it and if it breaks or cracks i am gonna ask for new playfield.

Seems to me your storage is an arcade as well. Nice to have 2 @rcades

#687 3 years ago

No ghosting yet on #113, but myriad of other issues! I think i have most fixed however.

yeah a garcade. i try to keep it more organized so i can play those extras also.
thanks. wifey wont let any in the bedroom.....yet.

Coming home!

Quoted from TaTa:

Coming home!

I've got my fingers crossed for you!
Still haven't received mine yet and happy to wait as long as it takes in hopes of hearing how stern is going to address the ghosting clearcoat issue. If I'm not satisfied with what I hear I'm afraid I'll have to cancel. I had high hopes that buying my first Stern (and first NIB) was going to be fun, relatively easy experience.
Live and learn.
Luckily it's only pinball.

My GBLE shipment got bumped to next week, the first one that was sent got damaged in shipping. They are sendings me out a new machine

#692 3 years ago

man i wanted #311! I got 113 tho if you want to trade plates

#693 3 years ago

Quick update, mine is set up and rocking!

No ghosting out of the box.

Gorgeous pin.

Only adjustment I made was lowering the left eject power. Sent it down the middle every time.

Flipper gap fine, airballs off of left ramp posts are CRAZY! Need to get a protector.

Finally. Been waiting all day. Glad to hear you are off to a good start, hope it holds!

#695 3 years ago

got mine in the arcade today. i agree with the l/s ramp airballs. btw thanks for the tip to lower left eject power, i was getting sdtm also.

#696 3 years ago

I love my game. It took about 30 days to notice any ghosting. Stern has apparently put me on a "list" of some sorts while they figure out what to do. One thing is for sure, the issues don't change my love for this title. It's truly fantastic. I have confidence Stern will take care of its customers.

What's the manufacture date of game and playfield?

#698 3 years ago

Anyone know if there is a plastic protector being made for the airballs off of those stand up targets?

Quoted from venom112:

Would be nice to see something less hodgepodge than reusing protectors from another game.

Sounds like a great mod opportunity.....make something that fits the theme. Hell, it doesn't even need to be translucent.

Quoted from venom112:

All of my major airballs come off the 2X and 3X targets. A very small plastic piece above those two targets is all that is needed to fix this. I wouldn't be suprised if Stern adds this.
