Bummer, did you call them?

I got her in place now and played one game.

All the art on this game is so nice!
Looks awesome in the lineup.

Probably won’t touch it again until Sunday! Gonna be super busy on Friday and Saturday.

I hope everyone gets their game soon!!!

Very nice! I forgot how great the side art is on this game! I have played it on location at a league and at the Disney arcades back when it came out tons of times but it was always wedged between games. I’m glad I picked out a spot in my lineup I will be able to see one side!

#6755 1 year ago

Have not heard from my distributor yet…. Hoping it happens next week on my days off. My luck it will happen when I’m pulling 12’s…

#6756 1 year ago

I got mine delivered Tuesday. It helps that I have a warehouse with a shipping dock.

#6757 1 year ago

Officially getting mine tomorrow! Can't wait!

#6758 1 year ago
Quoted from bigguybbr:

Are you by any chance running the latest release of the Cleland code? I was thinking about putting IC on mine, leaving updates off so I could still get achievements and have the sound track I like, but would just miss out on home team.

Yes, I'm running Cleland v1.09. It works great, just doesn't have the Home Team stuff for Insider Connected but it isn't that huge of a pain to scan in on the first game.

My game is an old one, so no worries about node board software issues. If I just got a newly-produced one, I might wait for Cleland v1.11 (hoping there will be one) just to make sure that there's no compatibility issues caused by using older code. There was a line in the release notes for v1.10 about new node board firmware, but no big warning about backwards compatibility, so who knows.

Any orders ship out from cointaker yet?

#6761 1 year ago
Quoted from Fsdre:

I still haven't heard form cointaker on my order. I'm not local so they will be shipping to my home in Tennessee. I haven't contacted them because I will be in Florida for fall break anyway and I figure like clockwork they will probably call to deliver when I'm down in Florida lol.

I'll just have to see if they can deliver the week of the 17th and hopefully the shipments will be ready by then!

#6762 1 year ago

Just picked up a premium today and joined the club. Played a few games and loving the shots and layout. The machine has 1.09 code in it and was wondering if the update to 1.11 has anything other than IC. Starting the slog to read all the 136 pages in the thread aswell

#6763 1 year ago

September 22nd build date. Finally it's here!

Quoted from PinballHaven:

Congrats! Seems you choose a distributor higher in the pecking order.

...or closer to the factory so shorter transportion! (Illinois)

#6765 1 year ago

Joined the club with a premium. Bought it 2 months ago. Adding some mod’s tonight.

I just got back into the club with the latest run. I used to have the cleland code years ago on my other one. Quick question, it looks like he updated it so I can get the latest cleland code and still have achievements?

#6767 1 year ago

I’m surprised the new run they didn’t put a protector in here. I thought they started to on the later runs

I got mine off route and it was still in good shape. That said I still put a Cliffy on it as soon as I got it.

Looks like I got lucky….
I just picked mine up! [quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Niiiice! now get that shaker motor in there!

#6770 1 year ago

New pro here as of today. Ball get stuck behind the drop target sometimes.
Ball search won’t even drop the target for me.
Coil beneath has one small spring on the left side but not the right. Is that correct?
Or is it something else? Thanks guys.
Cg

#6771 1 year ago

So for these new production games I assume I need to get Cliffy’s 2nd generation kit with the two chute studs?

That is surprising! Might want to ask your distributor if it was supposed to be on there and if they will send you one.

Common issue.. Dissapointing to hear they are still shipping with this issue. Yes, a single spring is normal. What is happening is your magnet is not close enough to pull the metal tab that releases the drop target. There are lots of fixes out there.. Here's one that simply adds a rubber ring to fix it:

Here's one that I did that involves adding washers to the bracket as outlined in this post:

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/guardians-of-the-galaxy-owners-thread/page/42#post-4411734

Finally, here's a third option which involves just bending the bracket with your hand which moves the magnet closer. This seemed to work for a period for me but would always revert back after some time which is why I inevitably went with the washer solution:

The pros have never come with the protector. The premium and le's did. Buy the stern one and put it on asap. The ball ejects will start cutting into the clear pretty quickly.

Do Pro’s only come with the playfield support pegs and not the normal slide rails like on the premium?

Yes, unfortunately

#6779 1 year ago

Such a goofy way to save 20 bucks. Guess I’ll order a set of “real” rails from pinballlife too

Quoted from MaxIsDead:

I installed a set of rails on a pro. It’s pretty easy. The only two suggestions I have is to:
1) use a wide-mouth clamp to press the T-Nuts into the playfield, rather than a hammer. Hammer will work, it just seems too aggressive to hit your playfield with a hammer
2) use some blue tape on the drill bit you have to use below the playfield for the wood screws. This will mark the depth of the hole you are drilling, and prevent you from going all the way through the wood.

Yep. I agree, cheap b@s#ards!

I ordered the protector for the scoop and the support
brackets... also a set for my Metallica pro too!

oh, also better back box speakers and a shaker motor. I love you Stern...

#6782 1 year ago

I think that fixed it. Crazy fix! Thanks!
Do I have to worry about heat on that rubber ring?
I guess it’s not on a lot.
I assume it gets hot though.
Thanks again

I ordered playfield rails too guys.. pros. Lol

Hoping we start to see some GOTG tracking numbers go out today!!

#6784 1 year ago

Mine is shipping today, waiting on tracking from Melissa

#6785 1 year ago

Received notification my game is at Nitro pinball ready to ship this week.

#6786 1 year ago

I am still waiting to hear from cointaker, has anybody heard from cointaker yet?

#6787 1 year ago

Received my tracking from Cointaker a bit ago.

I have seen this issue on my LE a few times. Stern even sent me a new mech that seemed to get the metal closer to the magnet, but it does still happen. Next time I it starts happening I am going to do this rubber ring trick. I must have missed this one and looks like an easy fix. Have many of you used this rubber ring on coil trick and found success?

Ok thanks. I may call them I hope they didn't ship mine, I’m out of town. I thought they were supposed to call before shipping them out to schedule a preferable delivery window.

I am still waiting on tracking info from cointaker, hopefully tomorrow.

It is. I unplugged the 2 closest wire harnesses and carefully stretched out the ring and got the top mostly over the coil. The hen the screw driver was used to tuck the underside into the space.
Honestly, so far I haven’t had anymore balls trapped

FedEx called! Delivery scheduled for Thursday!

#6796 1 year ago

Never got any tracking info but got a call from Dayton Freight in Warren Michigan that they are delivering tomorrow. They said they call an hour before delivery. Ready to finally be in the club!

#6797 1 year ago

I got some of my mods today from Mezel mods.

I only had time to install the plastics, the infinity stone and the roots that go over the flasher. The plastics set is super nice looking.

Loving this pin!

#6798 1 year ago
Quoted from bobukcat:

I have it too and definitely recommend it as I had the same wear starting on the left side of the scoop by the time they released the protector.

Do you have a pic of this installed? Did you have to make any mods to it so that it would fit? Was it hard to install?

#6799 1 year ago

I am all wet behind the chops for this game. 48 hrs will tell the tale

#6800 1 year ago

For those of you getting your new games, before you hit start for the first time, don't forget to turn down your trough eject power! 165 max should be good.

Enjoy!
