I have other games I can play...it gets here when it gets here.

Quoted from LadySlingshot:

Are you getting an GB LE? Anyone else feel Stern may have announced GB before they wanted to with all the leaks? Maybe not. One thing is for sure, with the movie in theater in 2 weeks, they definitely want to be shipping by then. Have to imagine Stern will want some nice LE's at the film events coming up.

I don't think Sony would want the machine at those events. I don't think they want everyone reminded about the vastly superior movies. Everything I have read about this new one, makes it appear to be a train wreck.

When I saw Ghostbusters (1984) in the theater 2 weeks ago, after the movie, they had a short preview for the new one. They actually showed the end scene where all 4 women cross the streams (the shot didn't have any visual effects in it). All I could think is "Really?? Really??? This is the best they can do is just ripoff the original at every turn?"

Quoted from WackyBrakke:

My distributor told me he's only getting half his order out of the initial batch and I'm in the second half :-/ Oh well, hopefully it's only a couple more weeks

I'm afraid to ask who your distributor is and how big the batch is.

Quoted from Arcade:

The sound is amazing on this pin.
The Game Exchange did a live stream at one of the shows and had the sound coming through the headphone jack on the Spike board.
No show noise and just crystal clear sound.
It was really impressive.

There's a definite sound improvement on the SPIKE system.

Quoted from Indypin:

Hey Indy, who did you order your pin from? I ordered mine from Trent and was told mine is at least (2) weeks away. Just curious since we both live in Indiana.

What number on the list are you? I can't imagine Stern has shipped all the LEs yet.

Quoted from Banker:

Mine arrived yesterday . Mirror blades tomorrow. One of the best Sterns I own (34).

Did you look at the Zombie Yeti blades he designed for the machine?

I'm not one for art or mirror blades, but all I can say is WOW, the ones he drew look amazing.

Spoke to my distributor, said Stern is slow in getting out the domestic LEs.

Quoted from Ed209:

Have tickets for Thursday. Crossing fingers it's good.

The non-paid reviews I've seen said it's complete garbage. Give us your review on Thursday.

Quoted from vireland:

I wish they'd add one more level of LED dimming to the inserts on these spike LED machines. Even at the lowest setting, it's still too bright in a dim room IMO. That blue flasher below the spinner on Star Trek is a KILLER on the eyes.

Star Trek is a SAM game.

I can't believe the delay Stern is having on getting these out.

#429 3 years ago
Quoted from Flato:

Yup delay is nuts never thought I would have to wait in till august and premium better keep there fingers crossed for september.

If the delay is due to them fixing a defect, then I have no problem waiting.

#439 3 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Option A - Get pin NOW and bitch about insert ghosting and who knows what the F else
Option B - Let Stern reject shit play fields, fix the problems, have it delayed a bit, and we get our pristine ANAL perfect pins, yeah?
Which one?
I'm guessing wait and stfu?

I plan on owning this game for a very long time...what's a few week wait?

#490 3 years ago

I'm guessing August for mine...As long as it's perfect, I do not care about the wait.

#493 3 years ago
Quoted from kpg:

I waited to buy my MET premium 2 years after the first one rolled off the line, and it had so many problems out of the box it was down for a month after I unboxed it. Trust me, you are just as likely to get a beater one day into production as you are a couple years into production. It's just the roll of the dice with NIB pinball machines.

Was yours built on a Monday?

Quoted from parabol420:

Very frustrating, it seems like every other distributor out there is getting theirs, but Cointaker doesn't seem to have any information whatsoever. Then I see threads where other distros are telling people that premiums are out in August, and we haven't heard anything regarding our LEs. I'm starting to get fed up. Anyone else feeling this way or am I just overreacting a bit?

Overreacting...first world problems....there isn't any other country I'd rather be in.

Quoted from vireland:

Definitely not finished this week. Stern is supposedly out of GB LE parts (I'm assuming the troublesome playfields), and they're not ramping back up on LEs until beginning of Aug...allegedly. This basically puts GB Premiums to the end of August. Ugh.

Ugh...I hope my LE gets here before the new movie is out on video.

#549 3 years ago

Almost seems like they are sending one out at a time.

#556 3 years ago

I was told "eventually."

Honestly, I have no idea how everyone waited for WOZ and Hobbit.

I thought Stern had a code problem, not a game problem.

#569 3 years ago
Quoted from CaptainNeo:

why would you buy a house with no room for pins? We have been looking around for a house for 4 years. the gameroom is the number 1 priority. If it can't fit 40+ games and able to get them in the room, it's a no go. Hence why we are still here.

I couldn't agree more. I've been looking for the past 2 years and haven't found anything that I like and has a basement (for the game room).

Quoted from Gexchange:

so far Ive shipped 10/30 of mine. So they are coming! I'm hearing next week they expect to build a bunch

The wait is a pain, but knowing I'll be getting an LE in perfect condition will definitely be worth the wait.

Mine arrives Wednesday.

#713 3 years ago

#236 has landed


#733 3 years ago

Just a week ago, it seemed like Stern was shipping 1 LE per day.

Now it seems like they are up around 2-3 a day.

#738 3 years ago

I'm opening up mine later today.

Is there a fix for the bent metal ball guide already installed at the factory?

#744 3 years ago

Couple friends just left from helping me unbox and set up the game. One of my friends took pictures and video...will probably be up tomorrow.

All I can say is that this is definitely a difficult pin to play. Like Iron Man, this will make you a better pinball player.

My machine:

Special thanks to Pinball Supernova for making a video if it.

How long did it take for it to arrive?

I'm received my new rail yesterday.

My new rail arrives tomorrow.
