Quoted from Ericc123:

That being said TMNT LE has arrived and that game is just special

I agree. Got to play both versions today and while I haven't been thrilled with many of the newer Sterns I feel this is thier best in a while and will sell a shit ton. If I was buying one I would personally want the LE. The pro is still nice but just feels like a pro.

Quoted from delt31:

Happy to support you guys during this nonsense. Helicon is no question the best pinball place in Pittsburgh. I would argue the country if not the world.....
Cheers.
And F covid. Happy 4th everyone.

Kind words brother. We strive to be the best and I know there are a ton of other very worthy places for this claim. I just appreciate all the love and joy we provide our patrons.

People tell me they like the pros on most games better. I feel that the LE games are better but who am I to say.

That's why Helicon is hands down the best to go. Nobody else has a selection of LE's like you provide. Glad you guys are in the burgh.

Chrisb doesn't like the LE games. Talk to this guy. Haha

So that explains why there is no JP or Stranger Things LE. I though you were just slacking.

Lol. I don't slack on pins man. We have to put the LE games in your basement for safe keeping.... If your wife gonna be ok with that?

Bump for a couple of great dudes named Chris! Stopped with my daughter on Friday and had a fantastic time as usual!

#1210 3 years ago

The Chris’ are the best. I try to support Helicon any way that I can during the pandemic.

#1211 3 years ago

Hmm.

Wondering if you guys might be getting a certain Stern game in the very near future..??

when is avengers expected to ship? No doubt they'll get it first.

That m'fer was loaded this last Friday. Think it was Friday. Stern was crowing about the first game being packed to ship off, and then showed a line of assembled playfields.

First LE possibly being.....#11?

cjmjmm2006 or chrisb have any details?

I heard that there may have been a delay on the shipping container arrival to Europe. From what I understand, which may be completely inaccurate, Stern builds the overseas games first, ships them, then builds the domestic games and releases them all at the same time to keep everyone happy.

#1215 3 years ago

well I can't wait for you guys to get it. Excited to try out the pro.

#1216 3 years ago

New Avengers game = Perfect excuse to head to Helicon to fill my growlers!

#1217 3 years ago

Yeah def let us know when it arrives. I'll be over!

#1218 3 years ago

Nice. I'll be there tonight.

#1229 3 years ago
Quoted from Ranhorton:Time to fill some growlers and kick some Thanos ass!

Yep - I'm going to stop by today if possible.

#1230 3 years ago

I'll be out today as well. Hope to spot some of y'all in the wild.

I was just there. Played the Pro because the LE wasn't unboxed yet. Amazing shooter! I had two extra balls, got the Soul Gem mini wizard mode, and won a free game on my first game. Not too bad.

Went down to play and there was people setup with a camera live streaming. Was that planned? Bummed I didn't get to play and made a wasted trip. LE wasn't unboxed yet so I'll be going back this weekend.

Damn nerds ruin things, like that. They should do that garbage after hours or something.

#1234 3 years ago

I stopped by as well. The game is very good. At first the pro looked bare especially in the middle but after playing you quickly forget and just fall in love with the shots. I'm actually thinking of getting one now - that's how good it was.

Art btw is nice but the weakest I've seen from zombie. Just very generic. Still good but zombie is special. The art is not special on the pro imo.

#1235 3 years ago

Played a quick game. Was really impressed with how the shots felt. Man that iron man tower shot is great. Well done buy the ladies and gents at stern pinball. Keith continues to pave the path of innovation. Can't wait to set up the LE.

This game was such a blast! Thanks again cjmjmm2006 for having us out to stream on our twitch channel!! <3

Yes - it's a very good game!

Just curious - which bar will the LE be setup in?

#1238 3 years ago

Is there still a 10 person limit in the bar? We haven't been out since the pandemic started and just don't want to drive out and not be able to play?

Did you put a quarter on the glass to reserve your spot in line

Quoted from rosh:

I haven't done that since Mortal Kombat however back then one quarter was all I needed.

#1241 3 years ago

Where else can you have both of these games to yourself each on dollar play? Avengers Le is at helicon.

Great game, but I think Stern definitely made a mistake with all of that yellow.

Agreed. Game shoots like a dream, and yellow is my favorite color, but even I have to admit that is a bit much.

Would you show for an mk tourney?

The cab is what it is but the game is so much fun imo. Well done Stern!!

Yeah, it's amazing. I would say that it's probably at the top of my wish list right now.

An excellent choice!
