Ah Alien, The Hope Diamond of Pinball.

#1502 1 year ago

This game could be THE game for this holiday season. I’m sick of all the Stern and JJP who’s dick is longer talk.

#1503 1 year ago

2 models

1 now and a higher priced model in 6+ months.

$7,777 before shipping

Now sit back and let’s see if this correct here shortly.

#1504 1 year ago

While we’re waiting for the stream, can someone explain why Alien doesn’t have flashers?

Much of the gameplay that I have watched is quite lacking in the dynamic lighting. Admittedly I am a flasher snob. I felt the same about TNA, despite the clever rgb coding.

#1505 1 year ago

My first podcast....is this the site? and will it populate on the top as episode 21????

https://superawesomepinballshow.libsyn.com/

#1506 1 year ago

There will be 2 models....

One ready to ship in January.

The "LE" supposed to be done in 6 to 8 months.....

******UUUGHHH - I hate waiting for the LE model, lol*******

#1507 1 year ago
Quoted from Dr-pin:

Seems strange having a company from sweden, making their pinballmachine in the us and thus making it unobtainable in sweden.

It’s actually a British company, with Swedish and Norwegian directors. The plot thickens...

#1508 1 year ago

CGC makes sense - lots of talk earlier this year they were making Alien.

#1509 1 year ago

If CGC makes it I may reconsider and move my EHOH deposit over. I am new to pinball since last year and an Alien pin definitely has my attention.

#1510 1 year ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

CGC makes sense - lots of talk earlier this year they were making Alien.

To be fair a lot of that was debunked / refuted by some pretty key people who stated CGC has their own stuff in the pipeline, possibly including a non-remake game of their own creation as well as the next remake so they had no interest in taking on production of this game. I guess we'll know pretty soon one way or the other!

Edit oops I thought you meant the podcast

Your collection kicks ass.....19 and counting....a nice round number like 20 sounds better...lol

#1515 1 year ago

Ep 21 is up!!!!!

#1516 1 year ago
Quoted from Yipykya:

Oh my! I don't believe it. A number of these pins are actually ready to ship. I won't say how I've come to believe this because I don't want to get anyone in trouble, and I don't want to jinx it.
So now that I'm firmly and safely tucked into my flame suit I'll say this: you'll know if I'm right in less than 24 hours. So just wait a bit before you roast and skewer me.
I know that sounds impossible, unimaginable, unfathomable, crazy, but... I have quietly gathered my ducks and formed them in a neat row pending tomorrow's announcement (being the optimistic sucker that I am).
As for the rest of you, as Ash once said: I can't lie to you about your chances, but... you have my sympathies.

Edit: I received news this morning that conflicts with what I was told yesterday. Nothing to be alarmed about but maybe these aren't ready to ship as quickly as I was lead to believe. I don't know what to believe at this point but hopefully we'll know in a few hours.

The joy I'm filled with in knowing Alien is about to be offered with support has overcome any angst about delivery swiftness.

Unrelated Question: If one were to build up a stash of proprietary spare parts for this specific pin in anticipation of a breakdown or in case they became difficult to find for repairs in the far off future, what would you be squirreling away now?

#1518 1 year ago

It's a better game without the PF LCD, straight from the horse's mouth.

Also physical hypersleep lock - wow...

#1519 1 year ago

Nice , Nice. Looks nice for a standard. Hope we hear about what the LE will have. Might be making my deposit now for this . So only 2 models??

#1520 1 year ago

Deposit paid!

#1521 1 year ago

I'm in!

Although I admittedly made a hypocrite out of myself for doing so, as I am one of those who preach "cash on the glass" when buying a NIB game, but with this title I have a feeling I won't have much difficulty finding someone to take my spot if I get cold feet for some reason.

#1522 1 year ago

Listening to the podcast now. Love these guys and they have great contact, but 2 hours and 40 minutes for todays podcast is really long. I am never going to get any work done today. Wish they broke it up into 3 podcasts.

#1523 1 year ago

If you want to go right to Alien stuff, go to 1 hour 30 minute mark.

#1524 1 year ago

The LCD Screen is there...Woohoo.

#1525 1 year ago

What’s the difference between the LE and the Standard for this release??

#1526 1 year ago
Quoted from McDoom:

Million Dollar Question. THE SE is loaded.

#1527 1 year ago
Quoted from Nysbadmk8:

Please tell me where, cause I cant find anything. Regular classic remakes still bring 8-8500.

Yes you're correct on the $8-8500 evaluation, not 12k as stated before. Before the remake, MM prices were pushing $15-20k.

#1528 1 year ago

The cabinet isn't lit and the sirens are missing ,I think you will see that on the LE version.

#1529 1 year ago

Did they say where these games are being manufactured?

#1530 1 year ago

Bloody hell classic example of why I don’t listen to American podcasts lol. I really can’t get on board with such over-dramatics and stupid sound effects. It’s like listening to Dingo and the Baby. Thanks to the person who identified the time stamp for the alien bits.

#1531 1 year ago

Does anyone know if I put the deposit down on the standard through coin taker would it be able to rollover to the LE when the details are released?

#1532 1 year ago

Yes. Per Melissa, that can happen.

#1533 1 year ago

but who is making the game?? We all are aware by now lots of people can design a game but there are only a few company's
who can actually build a game ! Who is building this beast??

#1534 1 year ago

Who is the manufacturer? PB or CGC?

#1535 1 year ago

Impressive price point for an epic game! The cabinet isn't really in the same league as the original imo, so it may play a bit differently in terms of the feel/mass of the machine. No playfield LCD but a pretty large backbox screen. Looks good! So a couple of thousand more for an LE, perhaps, pretty impressive! LE: add illuminated side blades and back art, beacons, shaker, anti-glare glass...$10k? Maybe, with any luck, they will bring back the playfield LCD.

The apron is centered properly!

#1538 1 year ago

Looks great, Im glad others will enjoy this amazing game now. To the masses!

Who will be distributor besides cointaker?

#1539 1 year ago

Website online https://www.pinballbrothers.com/alien/

$7777 for standard $9999 for LE

Several European distributors but no U.K. one which may be a problem come January 1st if there’s no Brexit trade deal agreed.

#1541 1 year ago

Glad to be wrong on the office pool!

#1542 1 year ago

Huh, I had kind of written this game off; didn't really love it the one and only time I played it, but now I'm curious to give it another shot. Might sell my POTC if they don't get that game updated soon.

#1543 1 year ago

ordered....shaker motor connector....first mod will be shaker and beacons

#1544 1 year ago
Quoted from dts:

The apron is centered properly!

The apron on the original was " centered" properly, just cheap plastic.

Look at TronLE, TZ, and a multitude of other games.

Orientation is to the playfield flipper geometry, not the cabinet...otherwise you start covering up things

It is nice to see metal on this one..

#1545 1 year ago

In for the win. Turns out there Is some good to come of 2020!

#1546 1 year ago

Paid

#1547 1 year ago

Im in ,but I will wait for LE, maybe itll have built in undercab lighting, and other cool toys
Its pretty good at this price!

#1548 1 year ago

I'm in for the LE....

That will be good for the fall of 2021 - something to look forward to.

I concur. Good idea, Fall.

#1550 1 year ago

I confirm with Melissa that my deposit down for the standard can be converted to the LE once the details are released. This is an epic game and I can’t wait to hear what the details are for the LE.
