Hello,

I recently unboxed a Godzilla LE for Thanksgiving. Kids, Grandkids and I had a blast. This is a very cool game. I rated it a 10 but my vote does not count because I have not rated the 6 games Pinside requires.

A few issues with this machine: 1. the ball gets past the robot godzilla when "auto shooting" during a "muligan ball" (extra ball given out due to a very low score) and it gets stuck behind its arm. The fix is very simple, as I could place a transparent cover or barrier to prevent the ball from being "home run" from the shooter. But it surprises me that this is happening. 2. The ball gets stuck behind the robot godzilla and gets hung up by one of the two screws. 3. At the very beginning, the ball was hanging up behind the building, but it has not happened recently. 4. The bridge very seldom collapses when a ball is going thru it. I think second to the building, this is one of the coolest features of the game, but I have only seen it happen once. What triggers this? and how often is it supposed to happen?

Thanks in advance.

The bridge will collapse totally when you hear him say the bridge is out this happens when you did 100% damage to it, then when you shoot the ramp to the bridge the ball will then drop off the bridge in it's collapsed position onto the playfield.

Behind the magna grab magnet is a switch and a captive ball. When you hit the magnet the ball in the back hits the switch and I believe this is what is increasing damage to the bridge.

Head over to the Godzilla group, lots of this already discussed and solutions presented.

Mulligan ball? I was having this, but it was corrected due to my right outlane and inlane switches were reversed. I simply checked this against my manual and went into switch test to confirm.

Building hangups could be due to machine not level, incorrect pitch, soft ball speed, etc.

Cmon over to the group, do some reading, say hello.

Hi all,

Just got my LE and love it. One question...I'm noticing that on the Godzilla multiball, the balls are spilled onto the playfield from the building in a single file line STDM drain every time. The ball saver kicks them back on, but it seems like they should scatter? Anyone else experiencing this?

Congrats on your LE.

Mine did the same thing until I leveled it left/right. Now all of them are released to my left flipper.
