We're back!

After a disaster in our datacenter took down our server, we are now running Pinside on a brand new server. However, things may not work as expected as we are still polishing the playfield and adjusting some switches! We might be switching to maintenance mode a few times. Please see this forum topic for more info.

Anybody with a newer run of SE,LE or the very new CE what are your playfields looking like?

I have an LE with a mid October production date. No sign of clear coat pooling or anything coming up. I have an insane amount of dimpling though and some wear on the left lane ball drop before I put the cliffy down. Some quirky wonkavator issues but all in all no other issues.

Quoted from Dr-pin:

Looks stunning.
Is there much stuff to remove to install a protector?
Where do you Buy the protector, if you Dont mind me asking?

Why? Horrible decision. See above

I played an Iron Maiden last week. Good game with fun shots, but the surface looked lika a golf Ball.

I have yet to see any location pin that doesn't have massive dimpling.

Just to add here I've kept the playfield clean and waxed and have changed the balls a few times already.

My SE has a Oct.30 date and I haven’t seen any dimpling or any playfield problems.

That's what I did to my Wonka SE as well and I felt like it looked great up until the day it left after 5000 plays.
Pins on location get a different kind of beating, and not enough love.

I clean mine a couple times per week.

5000 plays.....WOW!

Quoted from KirboTurbo:

5000 plays.....WOW!

It is a testament to several things:

- How engaging the game is, keeping us coming back over and over
- How difficult the game is, with shorter ball times
- How badly we play

However I will say playing Wonka definitely made both of us better players at all pinball. We are eagerly awaiting our CE.

Seriously though the playfield looked great, see pics:

You certainly get your money’s worth out of a game bravo to that. Curious not intended to bash a title but have you ever bought a title that you or your wife didn’t click with and flipped it fast or do you stay the coarse? I’ve had a few like Munsters and BKLE that I almost felt violated on the buying decision lol.

Sure, we got a JP Pro in August and it left last weekend along with Wonka. It didn't resonate with her, and while I liked it, after ~900 plays I got to a state where I just wasn't turning it on enough. All we wanted to play was Wonka, so it funded the upgrade to CE.

It went to a great guy who is enjoying it.

We don't really play Star Wars any more either, but I have a soft spot for that one. It was my first pin, the one that got me interested in pinball, and the wife is a HUGE fan of the IP. That said even she suggests we sell it from time to time. For now it stays, it's just in a different room.

#670 1 year ago

Lol. Meaning I felt robbed making such a horrible buying decision. My fault assuming the game would be more fun after only trying it a few times expecting it will somehow get better.

#672 1 year ago

Its 1:20 AM -- I am bored.....Wonder if the freight company will contact me on the game - Like to have it set up over the thankgiving holiday and enjoy it till I have to break it down and get the mods put on and the door and other parts over to Matt to be powder coated

Happy Thanksgiving week to everyone

I got to get my #1 MMr as well this week. Kind of on the bubble on this one - I think I will sell my other MMr that one I just have one of these on the floor or should I just keep the #1 MMr boxed up - its got the prototype topper as well that came with the JDRF Auction that I won.

I dont like keeping games boxed up - but should hold some value if I do - Maybe - But I just trying to make room for games and to have two of these - I rather have the #1 on the floor to play but ...its #1...So what do you all think?

#675 1 year ago

Keep and play one of the mmr and sell the other.. no need to have 2 unless its kept somewhere else

If you open it, a new standard applies. PinballStar will try selling you two CE’s of every title. You‘ll have to start calling Joe twice a day. You may qualify for quantity discount from Back Alley powder coating services.

How does the light under the cabinet look?

#700 1 year ago

#024 came yesterday. It is gorgeous! The colors are amazing. The sparkle on the playfield is really cool, as is the powder coat. Thanks to Pinballer22 who helped with set up and putting a playfield protector on. Game plays great with no problems at all. Thanks to Joe PinballSTAR for getting the game to me before Thanksgiving. Looking forward to a long weekend of Wonka.
