Quoted from Astropin:

They wouldn't....for sure. Even the ultimate wizard mode is essentially unachievable on this one. But for heart pounding game play nothing tops it.

Pure truth here.....I am now to my " curse profusely , turn it off, and scowl at it" phase....leaving it dark while my others are on, just to teach it a lesson ( think it's schooling me, actually)..

does anyone know where the forum link is for Met Vs IM?

#2254 3 years ago

Finally grand championed my IMVE. The rush this pin provides is like no other. Time to try and beat Jericho now for some 200 million plus scores .

Hate to burst your bubble but I've beat Jericho a number of times and I've yet to see a 200 million score. (My best was 180 something).

Welcome to the club!!! That is such a nice sight to see. I just love the thrill of a brand new game.

STERN seriously needs a better stamp for there boxes....and a person without parkison for writing #serial....just my thoughts.

#2259 3 years ago
Quoted from Astropin:

Production numbers are still pretty low on this one with only two very small runs of VE's.

Any guesses on the size of the VE runs? I remember hearing the first run was around 500 or so, I heard no rumors on the size of run two.

#2260 3 years ago
Quoted from Astropin:

I've been holding out hope for a minor Code update. Give a real skill shot, reduce the number of drones needed for DoDMB to half of current requirement (at least a setting to do that if you want), maybe something with extra ball, maybe a minor polish here or there.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

On TNT's website, in the Iron Man VE description he wrote that it was a run of 200.

I don't know how official that is, just passing along the info.

Ah, that would make sense. I figured the second run was smaller than the first. I see some second run VE are still available with distros, so demand for IM may finally have been met (for the time being anyway).

#2264 3 years ago

Ok so I ordered the shooter lane and ball eject protectors. Also got the full plastic protector set from pinbits. Any other damage protection that I need to order? Other mods will come later, mostly concerned with making sure stuff doesn't break or gets damaged.

Ordered a ColorDMD because I love it on my Theatre and TSPP.

May want to order a cup for yourself. IM has been known to kick players down there during gameplay.

Best Father's Day present ever!!! Your family is a keeper!!!! Enjoy your brutal game.....mark

#2267 3 years ago

Automated & Cointaker has some left (according to their websites)...as to how many, I have no idea.

I love having this game in my collection. All my friends who play it, love to hate it. They hate how it kicks their ass, but they love coming back for more. I'm the same way with it too.

The one thing I can't stress enough, is putting the traditional service rails on the game. I had to adjust a flipper the other day and it made life so much easier.

#2268 3 years ago

I'm calling out Grinder on this one. You need one of these Iron Man paintings for above your couch and a different one for above your bed. A true Iron Man fan would have at least one of these pieces of art. Maybe one near your pin. See how that flies with your wife. It's a lot less expensive than the $2k+ life size Iron Man figures ...

#2269 3 years ago

Dude. That is awesome. I want to order the one on the top right! "Iron Man Mask"

#2270 3 years ago

I might get the "Iron Sights" when I finish my game room remodel ... to put near my pin.

#2271 3 years ago

Challenge accepted!! No clue where I'll put it but I want one. I'm leaning towards:

They have a small and large size in that one ...

Quoted from KingBW:

So they come framed and ready to hang. Nice. When I get home, I'll need to do some measuring. I'm def getting one.

#2274 3 years ago

I'm wondering on how thin they are. If they are thin enough for light to pass through from the back, I might get the Iron Sights one and connect a light from a pin flasher to a light behind his chest on the wall. Now come on ... wouldn't THAT be cool! Or ... maybe do that to those wall art night light hand thing that you (Grinder) already have - modify it. I could pre-wire that before I put up the drywall. Now we're talking.

Now you're talking like a true mod addict! I love it

Just wait, I have a mod of a mod on the way maybe this weekend, and a different new mod concept coming in a couple of weeks that I got good feedback from for the idea ... if I can make it work. I will post those mods here. Nothing too spectacular or expensive, but something different. Stay tuned ...

Ordered my Iron Man Geek Painting! Free shipping too. Thanks man

Automated does, Cointaker doesn't

Did you get it with the frame? Photo please after it goes up.

#2280 3 years ago

I think they all are framed or on canvas. Yes Grinder, give us some pics once you received them. I would order them right now but Canada Post should be on strike tomorrow....

#2281 3 years ago

No problem. Cool! When you get it, let me know if light can shine through from the back so that I can make my decision. What's funny is this guy might get a increase in orders all of a sudden and not know the REAL reason why.

#2282 3 years ago
Quoted from pinnyheadhead:

Yes I think they are all framed like Matt said. I don't have a huge game room. So I'm limited on wall space so I didn't opt for the larger set but regardless, I think even the regular size is going to look very cool. Of course I'll post pictures when I put it up.

Ok I sure will. I'm excited to see it in person. Thanks again for the lead.

#2283 3 years ago

I just got Jericho twice on the same live continuous active ball. One of those times I looked up and saw a $3,000,000 award when it stopped all the fanfare. What qualifies that do or die thing you guys have mentioned? I thought it was somehow after Jericho.

#2284 3 years ago

F'ing Iron Man, you F'ing suck you F'ing F'er. Show me all the lights and F'ing drain. Arrrrrghhhhh. F!

Do or die is qualified for if you complete all marks in one ball. Then a 35 million counter starts, you panic and then drain cursing loudly like Dave just did

IM is paying out in cash awards of 3 million dollars now?! Sweet!

Quoted from Grinder901:

No, Marks have nothing to do with Do or Die. You have to start all 5 modes on the same ball to light Do or Die. The Marks are for Jericho.

No, Marks have nothing to do with Do or Die. You have to start all 5 modes on the same ball to light Do or Die. The Marks are for Jericho.

Oh I see. I guess I correlate the Marks with the modes. Starting them not completing them is the difference. Start Bogey, boom there's a Mark. Start Whiplash, boom theres another Mark. Spell Iron Man, another Mark. Obtain enough and Do or Die is ready, the large White Arc begins to go apeshit, right?

#2288 3 years ago
Quoted from Grinder901:

There is no other game that gives so much satisfaction or so much anger so quickly. Iron Man just pisses me off when I'm one shot away from collecting Do or Die (hurryup) running into Jericho, and a flail at the middle shot bounces down the drain. Add double scoring running, and it's just... Grrrrrr

Spell Iron Man, another Mark. Obtain enough and Do or Die is ready, the large White Arc begins to go apeshit, right?

The marks are up the middle and qualify Jericho at the center shot. The 5 at the top of those (IM, WM, IM, WL, D) qualify the center shot for the Do Or Die hurryup as long as it is (a) all on one ball, or (b) you earn a super in it, in which case it flashes and remains flashing ball to ball.

Getting all the marks and all 5 at the top of the arrow lets you play the DoD hurryup, and the collect shot of that starts Jericho. Doing that with double scoring (collecting Iron Man the second time) doubles the DoD hurryup collect (huge points) and that doubling will continue into the start of Jeicho.

And finally DoD Multiball. You have to kill a unicorn and smear its blood on the flipper buttons (you will never do it, so don't worry about it).

I just added a beautiful IMVE to my collection this week! It's such a fun machine and I love the simple rules and fast gameplay. I had to put it next to TSPP since the machines play so differently.

#2292 3 years ago

Is there a good tutorial on how to make EL wire whips?

#2293 3 years ago

What a game! Just got this machine on Monday and I'm loving it. I grand mastered it tonight with 105million and it was the most satisfying of any game I've ever put intials up on.

Happened to me last night. Just when you think you have the game mastered, it'll remind who the bitch is.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

QFT!

The best is when you have a GREAT ball 1, think you have that grand champion score easily made...then it smacks you upside the head with the fastest drains you ever did see the rest of the game. Like it's saying, "Ha ha ha...you think you're good? Well, you're WRONG."

I LOVE THIS GAME!

#2298 3 years ago

After 6 months I finally managed to beat Jericho today. Ball one was awful, ball 2 did all the work. What an adrenaline rush, no other game I have or played gives me that adrenaline. Put up a score over 131 Million. Im not going to talk about ball 3 or the next game I played, but the mocking that Iron Man and War Machine do on the trans when I walk away from the game (I know it happens), is finally over, at least for a little while.

#2299 3 years ago

Speaking of taunts, "Well...that went well" never fails to simultaneously infuriate and somehow make me laugh.
