say that picture and completely missed the topper
I am in 100% for something as cool as the bk topper - if it's going to be along the lines of the IMDN topper, I will pass

It looks like it probably does something . Maybe the logo folds down and a trex comes out ? Just looks to be a little thick to not do something . Could be completely off though .

don't think so, looks like just lighting effects

I hope it moves of some sort....appears to be a dinosaur on either side of the JP Logo....

That'll be a really nice 2021 Christmas present to myself the way the Stern accessory line is moving.

#9 1 year ago

Think the Led fire affect in the JP Logo. Dino heads move.

#10 1 year ago

Why is it Stern struggles so much with having a topper available at the same time that the game launches? Most of them are not very complicated from an engineering or design perspective. They know months in advance when a game is schedule to hit the production line.

In the grand scheme of things, the topper will be available to most people when they eventually buy the game but the half-year delay is still bizarre (and LE's deserve to have the topper preinstalled out of the box). I understand that the actual game takes priority, but how many resources does it really take up and how much of a distraction is it to the game designer/project manager. It just seems like leaving money on the table where the most ardent fans buy a third party topper or forget about/never hear about the topper during the new game honeymoon phase.

I'm not mad or anything. It's simply perplexing.

Agreed.

It looks ok, but that bk topper is Bad Ass.....

#13 1 year ago

Maybe the 2 Dinosaurs attack each other?

#14 1 year ago

I wonder if the T Rex skelton part is in a big hunk of amber looking stuff ?

LTG : )

Topper should have been the JP gate parks that mechanically open and close. Flat plastic logo with red leds behind it is an easy pass!

Stern have made some killer toppers like BM66, Munsters and BK3 but the majority are a couple layers of flat plastics with leds and they suck!

Is it an official topper from STern?
I also have a topper with my game. Just plexi. Did not install it because of my ceiling.

I feel its a similar thing as people who make posts about selling stuff without posting pictures. Because they're too lazy and hope that it'll sell without having to do much work.

Looks like a Raptor on the left and a T-Tex on the right looking down.

a luxury accessory for a luxury item. just in time for the recession!

If it costs anything more than $800 I am definitely out!

Lucky for you it’s only $799, shall I put you down for one?

#24 1 year ago

Probably $450

Idk. It looks less ambitious. More like the Iron Maiden topper. I wouldn’t be surprised if Keith said he doesn’t care as much about the topper on his game, considering how much of his effort is spent on the layout and rules. Steve Ritchie’s and John Borg’s most recent toppers on BK and Munsters were great though.

Keith can’t be the best at everything

#26 1 year ago

Damn, so votes says it sucks.

#27 1 year ago

If it doesn’t move, then the new tilt topper design one will be staying around.

#28 1 year ago

Looks very unlikely that there’s a moving element to that topper. Just looks to be flat plastics mounted

Doesn’t it appear to be sculpted dinosaurs on either side of the logo?

This is all the topper needed to be.

they look pretty flat to me. I say it's probably similar to the Beatles.

When are they going to learn you don't need a logo on the topper when the logo is already on the backglass?

TWD topper had no logo - one of the best they ever made
also GB, Munsters, BM66. SW

It has been revealed that the logo drops down and the two dinosaurs on either side approach each other and attack...

I love it, probably going to cost $450. I am also confused why stern can’t make a topper on launch date! Even if this is a Luxury item, in today’s world Toppers go hand-in-hand with the pinball machine just like artwork, lights and sound

So flat plastic logo piece folds down. And two flat plastic Dinos on some sort of sliding rail, slide towards each other.

WOW!
