I’ll forward to Hooked

#4652 62 days ago

Update from Hooked re: pop caps - They have to recast so its in the works. I sent the original sample out so now its a waiting game. More than likely Feb.

#4653 61 days ago

Is Stern making another run of IM VE?

Quoted from newpinbin:

Our local distributor has said Stern will be running another batch next year but it isn't confirmed when yet.

Quoted from newpinbin:

Yes. My dist. said it is a run of 75 and currently listed as Nov '21 build. I have one on order and hope to see it first week of Dec. Not sure if the build dates/prod numbers are US specific.

Did not realize they were making more of these after their early 2020 VE run of them.

Im shopping an Iron Man and the grommets at the end of the ramp are shot. Does anyone know the part number on Pinball Life? I think these are it, just need someone to confirm.
Thanks

Those are the ones mate! Just looked in my manual for you to confirm it 100%

If still able, I'll jump on the list as well. The game is bolted to the floor and never leaving. Might as well add a very nice mod that it doesn't already have.

Could someone explain what task is needed to light the extra ball?

Completing the iron man targets twice, I think an eb is sometimes awarded as a random special from the shield bonus as well

Another question for the club:
I found this plastic in the cab, any idea where it goes?

Does anyone know when Stern is running more IM?

They are doing a tiny run of them this month.

The current run is sold out in Australia. We will have to wait and see if they run another batch next year.

#4671 50 days ago

Has to be one of sterns best sellers and longest running games at this point.

Impressive considering everyone shit on it at release and myself and others where called idiots for buying it

One of the best games in my collection. Never bought one until the 2020 run. Glad I did.

I am lucky enough to have paid a deposit months ago for a game in this run, and at the time was told December delivery. Glad to know they're due on the line later this month.

#4675 50 days ago

My IM was made in 2011. Ten years later, Stern still making it with some software and cabinet upgrades. This is awesome. I believe there are a lot of IM fans in world. Plus IM kick started the Marvel universe. Disney found a new formula to print out money. These are amazing achievements. Thank you Tony Stark.

#4676 50 days ago

sorry , my bad
I knew it was something I had worked on, it is from LOTR shooterlane

I think it was poo-pooed because it has a wide open playfield, and a return to lightweight ramps, one of which is just a repurposed ramp from Austin Powers

#4678 50 days ago

Will there be a code update since new machines are being produced?

It was also shit on because it was one of the first games to use pegs as opposed to traditional service rails.
The game is incredibly good. Add the color dmd and it’s one of the best.

I bought mine nib in 2010. It had pegs. You had to create lighted figures. I also added service rails among much more. Longest in my collection.

#4681 50 days ago

Also, in that 11 years, has never broken.

mine is an early production model
Whiplash did not come with his whips

#4683 50 days ago

Why did Stern release the amount of machines made for every run with IM?

#4684 50 days ago

All the flash lamps on my original release Ironman have stopped working
the fuse is still good
any suggestions?

#4685 50 days ago

If they don’t work in test mode, most likely transistors.Run them in test mode, first.

thanks, but I have now fixed the problem

I had installed LEDs in some of the flasher positions, I removed them and the remaining incandescent lamps worked fine

maybe a LED bulb had shorted?

considering that last code touches on this pin were made by Lyman
on his free time home
now he's gone from STERN
well...

my original run Ironman is for sale

Quoted from Micky:

Its crazy that I got mine a few months back and these were sitting at Stern waiting for buyers. Now there seems to be a lot more interest but its likely all games not just this one.

#4690 35 days ago

Hey Everyone, Good news is that I'm in the club! Yay! Bad news is that I quickly realized that this was the fastest playing Iron Man ever. Turns out someone put in stronger flipper coils. Boooooo. More work for me.

The Whiplash plastic is cracked because of this. Is there anyone that makes just this specific plastic replacement?

Thanks!

#4691 35 days ago

Also interested in Hooked pop bumper caps!

I have been looking for that plastic for years. Never seen one available. Luckily, I saw mine break and got the piece before it was gone. Super glue time, still holding.

#4694 34 days ago

The original 2010 run. I figured I would save some cash over the current prices on the VE.

The longest lasting in my collection. Bought nib in 2010. It has never broken.

Anyone who makes plastic protectors stateside should be able to cut you a new plastic.

#4700 33 days ago

The one I have been searching for is the plastic below whiplash, has a rubber on it. I even had on protectors, broken at the screw. It’s got a rubber and goes above his 2 targets.
