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.
