This -> is the 80's Stern logo...
Anyone else notice the Casio calculator watch the guy drilling random holes in the PF was wearing?
Not only the Casio Watch but the Namco/Bandi shirt.... lol
Quoted from DBLM:
I hope Thanos is in the game. Really liking what little pieces of the playfield we are seeing so far. It seems to capture the feel of the movie, which is summed up in one word: FUN! If the game delivers, I am definitely a buyer. Thanos purple armor, here I come!
He is, You can see his hand on his chair in one of the quick changing frames....
Quoted from Tsskinne:
Stern is smart if they can get these shipping this month and making this a holiday gift idea for a lot of collectors, still would have been smart to show something at expo I think, but oh well see what happens.
I was told when I ordered my LE the Pro’s are currently on the production line and will be shipping as soon as 2 weeks. Premiums will be end of Nov or first week of Dec and LE’s end of Dec...
Quoted from Shapeshifter:
Not a fan of the gold trim on the LE but it does have a mirrored backglass and they do look 100x better than translites.
That's the main reason why I ordered the LE, I will probably be replacing the ugly gold with a different color. I will wait until I get it in hand to see what it looks like in person.
I was told you cannot purchase that mirrored trans either. If you need to replace it at some point you have to prove you own an LE and send in your old LE backglass and if it's broken you have to send in the pieces....
Hopefully I will get mine soon as I ordered really early and requested a low number as well...
Quoted from Shapeshifter:
All those 'Stern are listening posts' and it turns out the laser armor is an expensive add on to an already expensive LE...
And are they listening to the lack of songs or is it more the case that initial pre-order sales are pretty poor?
I am guessing based on anecdotal info here and the high prices in Canada, Australia, Europe that games are not shifting like they used to.
This is the factor that has probably led to some songs being added to the game.
Yep. Voice your concern on the Facebook post. It does appear they are listening... hopefullymif enough people respond they will make a change...
Quoted from pinstadium:
I wanted to announce that for the GOTG owners to be that we have just officially announced the official plug and play Pin Stadium kit with the optional GI module and UV+Glow flasher feature. This playfield is going to be very UV reactive and its going to really ignite and come alive. For those of you who are interested in ordering or if you have any questions please email me at email@example.com Several have already placed their orders so just posting this up here to let others know that they are now available.
Gameplay videos and along with before and afters with the Pin Stadium installed on the GOTG will be posted up very shortly!
Ordered mine, If you are in the fence I would get your order in now! These are AWESOME and Scott is incredible to work with!
Quoted from j_m_:
not wanting to be a "debbie downer" (I do like the playfield layout so far), but is it just me, or does the topper scream unimaginative and cash grab? (especially if stern attempts to charge $350-400 for it
it looks like starlord's eyes will do the obligatory [light up]
I don't mind it but not diggin how it says "Guardians"... As others have stated the title is everywhere already...
Hopefully someone will make a better version
Yeah, Thanks for the unboxing, setup and play waspinat0r!
Really enjoyed watching it this afternoon.
Quoted from libtech:
Its obvious they just released it early to cash in on the holiday rush.
I don't think Stern released to cash in on the buzz of the holiday rush but it is definitely possible Stern released to make their Q4/2017 projections. Especially if Batman and Star Wars under performed. Who knows, I haven't gotten my LE yet but I am looking forward to getting early/this year even with unfinished code for now.
I have faith they will release updates and all will be good...
Wasp, You mentioned on your twitch cast one of the voices sounded like Bender from Futurerama?
John DiMaggio is that voice and he has worked on voices on the Guardians of the Galaxy Cartoon...
btw - the cartoon voices kinda suck too.... Took awhile to get used to them after seeing the movies.
Comparing a SWLE to a GOTG pro I would think is a bit of a disadvantage. With LE’s shipping next week I would be curious to see people’s opinions.
Can’t wait to get mine on Tuesday!
Quoted from cscmtp:
Can someone talk me out of buying a GOTC Prem? My entire family loves the movie/theme, and I like what I've read on here so far. But the code doesn't sound acceptable, and I hate to reinforce Stern's behavior of shipping out barely beta code...yet it would be an awesome surprise for Christmas. Someone talk some sense into me Also, could someone PM me their best price if you called a few distributors? Thanks!!
Just do it, This is destined to be a great game even if it has been shipped with barebones code. Seems they are releasing code updates weekly now...
I ordered my LE from Cointaker and Melissa has been wonderful from the start! 2nd NIB from them. I bug that poor woman almost daily for updates and she had been nothing but helpful......
Quoted from Blacksun:
Supposedly picking my LE tomorrow barring any last minutes changes again. Planning on doing a live stream unboxing... Will update when confirmed...
I was told premiums are slated to ship end of Dec early Jan...
Uggg pushed until Friday now.............................................
Quoted from Darscot:
I wonder how badly it under performed? I just can't see Stern changing their mind on the license if it was selling as expected. It is really great for the pin but there is no excuse for the way they launched it. Hopefully they make changes in licensing and marketing going forward.
I don't think it is under performing. It may be that Stern has had this planned all along and are saying they are listening to the community...
You just can't license songs, write updated code/modes in 2-3 weeks... This is all part of a greater plan imo.
Quoted from cooked71:
I get a page not available message now. Been taken taken down.
Edit: maybe this will work -
