Quoted from jdpilot:

I’m going to walk this one back after this new pic surfaced. It’s not a mustard brown yellow color like in the initial pics for the LE, but a more gold with ‘The Collector’ style laser etching. I am digging it.

Agree, The etching breaks up the gold and looks really nice. Hoping this is what is on the LE and not the solid ones originally pictured.......

Are these updated LE side rails? Or Stern upgrades? Like the ones they offered over the standard rails on GBLE, ASLE etc..

No idea, I have not seen an official statement or upgraded picture from Stern. Would be odd for them to offer upgraded side rails in gold and not black for Pro/Pre...

They look like upgraded aftermarket ones, but nothing has been announced by Stern. Pinside just assumed they were the "new" LE armour. Also no confirmation about the songs AFAIK. All assumptions at the moment.

Didn’t the news about the songs come from the SDTM guys?

Well, I would be pretty shocked if these aren't an extra $400 like the KISS ones.

I hope not cuz the ones they currently have pictured look like complete ass. And I will not be purchasing for $400 out of principle if they put the ass ones on intentionally.

You have an LE in order? Why not get a premium and use the money you saved on these new rails? Seems like a win win.

I think that's where it came from. Nothing from Stern though.

#710 1 year ago

that powder gold looks like complete ass in general. If they are going to do that, they should have done them in brass so it matches the lettering on the cabinet. Then I could see it. or if they put it on the premium on purpose, just to get people to buy LE over premium.

The upgraded armor is doubtful, The GOTG game "Matrix" would have stated laser cut armor. Safe bet its an optional accessory, just like GB & AS was. Last I checked armor is around $250, your distributor might sweeten the deal if you bought a game from them. (ASLE armor for reference, & upgrade as well)

I don't think they said it in the video I watched it like 5 times lol, but they updated their posting info... pic attached.

Wouldn't that mean they would have to include a LDB as well since the pro and prem are black. Or are you suggesting they are limiting the market for these upgrades to just the LE version?

#713 1 year ago

Now we get to beat them up about which two songs they picked. Joking aside, if it's true they got two songs, I hope one of them isn't Escape(Pina colada song). I like the song in small doses, but it would get old fast. I'd prefer Hooked on a Feeling, and I liked the idea of Cherry Bomb for a mode.

I don't believe so, previously they offered a matching LE color and a base color. I bet we see a upgraded armor LE Gold and Base Black or (wrinkle black finish) Really makes no sense to not offer an upgraded accessory, its more revenue for Stern, I have them on my GB, and plan on the same for GOTG, protects the side graphics/vinyl & IMHO its much better on my GB's vs standard.

photos for reference.

GB had LE green and Prem/Pro Black
AS had LE Purple and Prem/Pro Black

Aren’t the add ons usually shown after the game has been released?

#716 1 year ago

Poop. Y’all are probably right being the upgraded armor. I was hoping with what they did with the SW LE armor that they’d do something awesome with these too Probably waaaay too much to hope for

The new armour picture just came off a DeadFlip social media feed, with no explanation. Stern hasn't said anything about it being the new LE armour.

No not yet but we should know something soon hopefully.

To be honest, nothing surprises me with Stern any more. They have turned the LE model into a waste of money now.

Stern really should put the strengthening on all the cabinets "especially" on the pro as in theory they are for the operators and should withstand alot of moving around

Per Stern FB the laser cut armor will be sold separately, not included on LE.

Yup posted on another similar thread but here's the proof for everyone else.

That sucks, but expected it. Looks like premium with the armour will be the go. I would only miss the screened back glass from the LE. And can wait to play it or until code matures.

As a BM66 owner I’m sure you will agree, Franchi’s art looks phenomenal even on a translite, it was the first thing I noticed when I turned on my BM66LE, the translite just pops and looks amazing.

Are we going down that path again about backglasses ???

Stern has not used the screen backglass since Star Trek 2013.

Walking Dead 2014 Stern introduced the new technology that uses a high definition mirrored decal transfer.

What are the cash/wire street prices?

Pro

Premium

LE

Screened glass/transfer, whatever it's called. I'm just saying that's the only difference I would miss by not buying LE. Not a reference to the printing technology.

Looking up at my BM66LE translite sure makes missing that backglass on GOTGLE a whole lot easier. The LE translite pops better than some back glasses I have on my walls, Franchi could print his artwork on newspaper and it would still look awesome!

I hope it’s not too much off topic here etc, but my STLE is a really nice looking game! It’s the only LE I have purchased nib, because it felt like I was getting a lot of cool stuff for the extra money.

ST is a great game. If I didn’t dislike the theme so much I would so own a ST.

I remember buying my STLE and asking why it cost sooo much at 13k. Now thats the price for a Premium here

Yep, I bought TWDLE after that and that was the end of LE's for me. I would love a STVE based on the OG series. Any news on when we will see some GOTG gameplay? the suspense is killing me.

I imagine it will be at IAAPA on the 14th and FPF on the 17th in Orlando.

#743 1 year ago

I'll be in Orlando during IAAPA again this year. We went last year and it's a pretty amazing expo.

We weren't going to go this year because it didn't really fit the schedule, but I may have to sneak over myself to give Guardians a try.

You definitely got to get over there and play Guardians and give us all a full report about the game Wolf!
