The Groot Jaw motor, Stern #511-7926-00, is available and in-stock at PBL for $69 (Part # 041-5142-00 ) and appears to be manufactured by MultiProducts.com, which is their Model DCM-1018-24. You can buy direct from MP for about $30+$30 shipping ($60) online.

Best to get it replaced under warranty if at all possible!

Looking at adding a Pro to my collection, and have a question: I've seen two different sound mods, the Cleland and MyPinballs. Thoughts on which is better? I like the game a lot but the default sound package drives me insane so I definitely know I am swapping that out...thanks!

#5403 5 months ago

I've had cleland in both the pro i had and the le we have now. Can't compare it to others, but cleland would be hard to beat .

#5404 5 months ago

I think it depends how you play. I don't spend much time out of modes so cleland's works the best for me. When I had the apple juice version I rarely heard the songs. Try them all and see what works best. I believe there are at least 4 different audio packages available.

#5405 5 months ago

Can someone provide links or info how to access all the available sound mods? (The Cleland sound mod is available by sending a DM to Cleland on Pinside.)

Quoted from Jonathan007:

As far as I know, there are three that circulate around. As of now (per Sterns legal strongarm), there aren't any public links anymore - all of them are available by DMing the creator. Those are:

Cleland
Sinestro
Applejuice

If you're interested in learning the nuances between each version, feel free to search those users names in this thread:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/gotg-sound-replacment-mod

I personally prefer Applejuice's version.

#5407 5 months ago

Apple juice has 2 versions now. One movie mix and one 80s mix.

Are there any dual Guardians and Stranger Things owners here? Debating adding one of them to my collection and would be interested in hearing opinions from those that own both and/or have played them extensively which you prefer and think has the best last ability in the home environment? Any insight is very appreciated.

I own both... stranger things, easily.

And i love the Gotg movies. Stranger things series is just meh for me.

#5410 4 months ago

I own both and personally enjoy both very much. Very different games with some similarities in certain modes due to the programmer. Similar strategies as well as completing modes leads to very large bonuses. That's really where the similarities end tho. I think the tightness of the shots on guardians is a turn off for friends that come over causing it to be ignored more.

Stranger things, after being dialed in, is the house favorite by a mile. It just never gets old for anyone in the family. Totally legit separate strategies you can go for. Go for modes to stack the bonus or fight the demo for supers. Both valid strategies.

I've had an offer on my guardians and considering it but would never for stranger things and it's been here a year and a half verse 7 months for guardians.

Together they make a great package with the cleland audio updates. Rocking 80s tunes that complement each other nicely.

Great feedback. Thank you. Any opinion on Stranger Things vs. Tron in the home environment?

I wish I did Tron I would love to have.

Tron hands down.

#5414 4 months ago

I'm in the minority. I've played all three games, and still like gotg the best, in prem or le trim. And that's before I bought our gotg. Its easy to learn, but ill never beat it. So it keeps us entertained

#5415 4 months ago

I'm looking to pick of a GOTG Pro but it seems everyone is sold out of them. Anyone know when they will be on the line again?

My distributor is expecting a shipment from Stern THIS month. Not sure how many, but some will be shipping soon!

#5417 4 months ago

Anyone have opinions on which art blades look best with Guardians? Stern's, Tilt Graphics, or Pingraffix GOTG mirror blades (I see Pingraffix is doing a 4th of July 25% off sale).

I own GOTG (Pro) and STh (Premium). We are huge fans of both themes. Have had GOTG for over 2 years now and honestly its now the theme that's keeping it here. It's fun to just step up to and bash and enjoy the music and fun after a day or work. Was our first pin so we may never get rid of it. So having only owned STh for a few months I may be biased but I'd say it has more lastibility. Deeper code, more strategy on going for TI or Demo modes etc. So for me its STh...

#5424 4 months ago

Can you pinstadium users share some more in depth photos or videos of them in action on guardians? Also what you have triggering the flasher.

On the fence for this game, would appreciate some honest feedback from users who have already done it.

We have an le, pinstadium not needed , my opinion. Plenty of light in this game. They are a great add on for other pins

I have the Pro and agree, this game is plenty bright with stock GI.

#5429 4 months ago

Here my LE with added spots on the slingshots. That’s more than enough in my opinion

I'm not knocking pinstadium at all, great product. Worked well on deadpool and munsters, very dark games . Gotg has great lighting in my opinion

Also agreed, I have them on WOZ and Pinball Magic, both are games that really need help with GI and the adjustability of them are great but many other games just don't need them IMO.

#5432 4 months ago

Thank you all. I think youve all made the answer clear for this game.

#5433 4 months ago

So which art blades do the iwners here like best for this game? Ster's, Tilt's, Retrofurbs? Interested in opinions.

I think i bought the pingraffix ones. They look good.

#5436 4 months ago

I bought the ones from pinball life (Stern).

Then I seen Pingraffix and wished I had seen them first because I'm sure I would have bought them. https://www.pingraffix.com/product-page/stern-guardians-of-the-galaxy-pinball-inner-art-pinblades

Guys I’m hoping someone can help me out with an issue I’m having with my pro. I can turn it on and play a few minutes but after a few minutes it will quit and reboot to the initializing screen until I turn it off and restart it again. Any ideas?

#5438 4 months ago

Not new here but don't post much at all. Wife just surprised me with a pre order for a NIB PRO edition last night! Glad to join the club! CANNOT WAIT!

When you say the initializing screen can you be more specific, like what exactly is on the screen when this happens? Have you done anything to the game recently?

#5440 4 months ago

It’s just says initializing like when you first turn it on and it’s booting up. It basically restarts. I haven’t done anything to it. It’s actually been in storage for about 8 months

Was it folded up for storage? If so reseat connectors in the backbox, remove and re-insert the SD card and then try burning a new SD card if the problem persists.

A little bird tells me NIB GOTG machines will start leaving the factory sometime next week….

#5446 4 months ago

Now that a new production run is happening what do you guys think the chances are for another code update?

#5447 4 months ago
Quoted from ExSquid:

My guess is that these are 'loosely' related. If 500 new machines exit the shipping dock, that puts a top-line $3Million line item on their FY2021 general ledger. It might be the catalyst to generate a new firmware version *IF* there is a list of issues that has been compiled since 1.06 and which are considered 'core fixes', rather than cosmetics.

Obviously, anyone's guess, but if I were a betting man, (to me) the last firmware release date of Dec-12-2018 seems like a long time ago and perfect for a list of bugs and other enhancements to be compiled, so the compiled list might well be staring someone in software engineering in the face right now!

Yeah I've played a lot on location and It would be cool if they added some more music and other enhancements to it. Either way looking forward to owning this one! That's my line of thinking also, its been quite a while since the last firmware update and I can only imagine the list of bugs if there are any.

#5449 4 months ago

The code is fine, the only reason I could see them doing an update is to add DJ mixer, co-op, a challenge mode or online connectivity.

#5450 4 months ago

Joining the club. Put a deposit down for a pro at Cointaker for the next run. Melissa said should arrive in August. Can’t wait!!
