This game has the potential to be a big hit. Art, toys and layout look great.
This game will play way differently than Metallica due to the rocket kicker, under playfield magnets, and drop target shot. Not to mention a totally different rule-set.
The playfield is only 20.25" wide. There are only so many possible shot locations. Especially in a fan layout that everyone loves. This game will be fun and you won't feel like you are playing Metallica.
The bigger selling feature for me is the two additional magnets on the premium/LE. You won't be able to see the spinners because of Groot's arms anyway!
Do you really think Stern said "oh crap, nobody is pre-ordering this game" and then all of a sudden went out and secured the rights to two songs in less than a week? I think it takes longer than that. I would think this has been in the works for awhile.
Baby Groot's hair on the shooter knob looks wrong to me. It's way to wirery. Looks like he has a squid-head. Shouldn't he be sporting this hair style?
I'm watching the twitch feed and that "ooka chaka, ooka chaka" intro to that song already makes me want to take a sledge hammer to this thing.
It's great that they have a few songs that everyone wanted but this song will get old incredibly fast.
Now I see why some people say music written specifically for pinball is better.
