Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

For those announcing or planning to buy an LE instead of standard, was Wonkavator the deciding factor? something else?

I am considering both, and for me personally, the Wonkavator ball lock is the deciding factor. For others I am sure it is that plus the powder coating and art package as the Invisiglass, shaker and external sound control are easily added later.

My pins are all in a row and I can't see the sides of any of them, so I really don't care that much about side art. The backglass is a little boring on the SE with the lack of Gene, but Jjp backglasses are so small because of the big screen, that really doesn't bother me either. I like the look of powder coating, but I can live without it so it is not really a deciding factor for me.

So for me it comes down to the Wonkavator, which while cool, does not really seem like it gets used a lot and I just don't think it is worth the extra $ for me... so I am most likely in for a standard.

Quoted from pinball_keefer:

Yes. I don't understand why you're arguing with me.

I don't want to speak for bigd1979, but I am guessing it is because in the only pic floating around of that area on an SE, it is so dark you can't see the hole in the backboard or the wireform coming out of it. On the LE and CE versions that area of the backboard is yellow and lit up, so you can clearly see it.

That being said...I believe you!

Thank you Joe for posting this side by side pic of the SE and LE!

Makes me realize that while I would prefer to have Gene on there, I am fine with the SE artwork and trim. However, that back corner of the playfield does look pretty dark and lonely on the SE when you see it right next to the LE. I am wondering if it looks any better with the game on?

Can someone going to the show take/post this same pic with both games turned on?

Quoted from Join_The_Cirqus:

These are still prototype games right?

Good point. I wonder how close these are to the final product? I guess there is a chance that the SE could still end up getting some lighting or plastics/art in that back corner.

Quoted from Join_The_Cirqus:

I think the LE is just missing the Blue Wireforms right?

Yup. The LE seems to be missing art below the screen as well?
