Just wanted to start a necessary thread for relevant Godzilla gripes. Also will be nice so that gripes don't have to be posted in the other threads, and Stern can visit this thread to adjust accordingly in the future. I will start:

1. Does Godzilla move?
2. No representation of best version of Godzilla aka Godzilla 1998/No Matthew Broadrick on pin anywhere.
3. Godzilla not anatomically correct. Should have proper genitals if not wearing clothes or should be clothed.

Please feel free to add.

Point #2 is going to get a fanboy nuke dropped on you.

Never had to make a sequel because the movie was so perfect.

Got to admire your belief on this. This is going to go over like KG in Boston.

Don't know who KG is but I hope he is OK.

I am disappointed at the price. The game looks very good.

Not a huge fan of Godzilla but the layout, toys, and new pinball tech mechs look amazing. I am not disappointed in a pinball fan view.

Yep- enough of an increase to finally stop me from buying NIB. Game looks fun though.

Stern needs to also implement a mechanism where you put a quarter in the coin door, and if you opt to return it, you can either get your quarter back or opt to get a reasonable amount of animal crackers instead. This kind of stuff should be standard in new pins.

It’s in the Director’s Cut.

I am disappointed that Stern is still using all these seasoned/stiff dealers and distributors, that try to rip you off on such a sought after game.
Why not drop them altogether and make an exclusive deal with someone fresh and innovative like Captain's Auction?

Is "Heroes" covered by the Wallflowers even featured in the pin?

Anyone think distros selling over MSRP should not be allowed by Stern?

I'm disappointed they didn't go full-blown 80's neon since they were already 90% of the way there.

How much extra for a shooter housing with no logo?

#18 2 days ago

Matthew Broadrick??

#19 2 days ago

I'm disappointed in the game due to pricing. 11k for an Le Is nuts.
No way if own this game at those prices...

I am disappointed there is no articulated 7 inch tall Godzilla figure who walks across the playfield and breathes fire at the player through a hatch in the playfield glass.

Besides that I have to admit the game looks pretty cool. But this is a haters thread so i have to tell the whole truth!!

If you think Godzilla 1998 made was the best version of Godzilla then you know nothing about Godzilla. The good news, you can get a Sega Godzilla, it's as good as the movie was

Pretty sure the OP is just being sarcastic. No one with a brain that actually functions correctly would ever say the 1998 Godzilla movie was the best.

I love zombie yeti but I don’t like the art on this one, or the forced QR crap, or price increase. Feel free to downvote me lol.

Only 4 Pinside Godzilla threads = major letdown.

I was rooting for 5.

#30 2 days ago

I think it’s gonna be a great shooter, that’s what KE brings to the table every time. I was expecting the art to be a little more retro than bright and cartooney like it is. The price increase is BS. I’d rather get a premium game from Spooky at just a little more than a Stern pro that is all stripped down. No plans to own this but will definitely enjoy flipping it on location.

Sega's Godzilla has more reptile than whatever lizard stern's T-Rex was in JP

Holy crap, I read almost every post before realizing this thread was taking the piss.

I can't afford one.

It’ll be a fun flip but thought same on art.
Stern is successful at grabbing popular licenses and flipping them into their own cartoon style interpretations.

god help those who didn't even get it by point #3, which was hilarious:

"3. Godzilla not anatomically correct. Should have proper genitals if not wearing clothes or should be clothed."

a 3.00 godzilla toy for 10 k and 1000 le price raise i expected more but stern is all about the money.

#37 2 days ago

No black and white edition

#38 2 days ago

Godzilla appears 9 times on each version including all graphics. Are they afraid we won’t know what the game is? Whatever happened with guerrilla marketing where you don’t put the name anywhere? I say best design practice would be to leave name off the cabinet entirely. It could appear once on the backglass and once on the playfield for total of 2 times.

Price of premium is too damn high! Prices jumped $1k and suddenly the paradigm shifts. Some people are delaying or eliminating nib purchases due to sticker shock. Pro’s at $7k pfffftt.

#39 2 days ago

years ago we had good relations with dealers and were cut bargains and what not .
Then Stern clamped down on distros and all Distros were made to sell same price .
Now it seems all that is gone too and distros charge what ever they wish .
Probably why so many start up Pinball sales companies as it is the only way to get machines anymore at cost .
Some crap that is

Quoted from insight75:

The godzilla toy on the Premium and LE (can't tell if it's just a plastic standup on Pro or not) looks awful. No wonder it's hidden in the back even though he's the titular character.

Also the art on the Pro is superior - I love the 'Godzilla' font with the japanese characters underneath, wish that was across all trims. Wish I could do a premium playfield with pro art.

#41 2 days ago

The playfield art is great, maybe as good as DP playfield, but with a lot more of it. Cabinet art and translite art on all versions are about equal and that is just ok. Color intensity is a bit weird. Overall artwwise, I put Godzilla last on a list of all ZY’s titles, but way beyond many others.

This might sound weird but if I had the premium sitting in front of me, I’d probably find an alternate translite and replace it. I don’t even know what would look fitting, but something better.

He said "titular" huh huh huh

We need more to opt out otherwise this will just keep going up. I'm in Canada so there is ~30%+ on top of this just in currency conversion along with shipping and 13% sales tax. Sales will eventually scale back but the question is, what will it take to reduce these prices?

#44 2 days ago

I wish they would spell Godzilla backwards on the pinball. ALLIZDOG. That way you get a challenging brain teaser/mini game to figure out what the game means, which I think would add significant value. Just think about how cool it would be to have to decode a game before you knew what you were playing! Then when you finally do the work to solve the puzzle, the game will be that much more rewarding.

Why doesn't Godzilla have a surfboard? He comes from the water.

#46 2 days ago

There's just no pleasing some people. If it had Mathew Broderick you would have complained that it didn't show his genitals.

This is likely true. Please take note Stern.

I’m disappointed that the shooter knob isn’t Godzilla’s claw or a bust of Godzilla’s head. I feel like either of those would have had a nice feel while going for a skill shot.

Agreed. Would also like the shooter knob to be a realistic Godzilla tit that you grab at the start of each new ball.

With Stern redoing all the old DE / Sega themes, the letdown for me is this is Godzilla and not Robocop.
