Question: Does the snake come with the fangs from factory, or is it a mod?

#256 6 years ago

The first ones released from factory came with the fangs.

Quoted from RobT:

I wonder what % of those still have their fangs?

#258 6 years ago

the green plastics + green lights are very good

i have done the other way, matching the purple of the plastics & the playfield, its very nice too, but pictures didnt gave justice at all, seems more blue than purple (same for the coffin, its green and it seems ceylan)

bah...

I still have the factory fangs on my early Pro.

Quoted from yuriijos:

. I love the band and artwork but mechanical and depth issues really ruin it for me.

I've never had ANY issue with my drop targets, breaking or sticking, and if you have "depth issues" with MET, the only games you should ever own are TSPP and LOTR.

I have depth issues with Metallica too.... I don't know if I should go for sparky off the bat and get CIU lit then do MOP mb followed by another CIU...Or should I get the snake super skill shot and get MOP mb then sparky mb to get S&D rolling quick.... Or should I go for a piston super skill shot and get the 2X pf going right away....Or maybe keep it standard and do the S&D super skill shot and work on those.....Or should I start bashing on the coffin and get an ultimate stack of endless multiballs but miss out on a CIU mode or not....And should I start fade to black when I have FUEL going or should I be risky and go for enter sandman w fuel..... Or should I try and get S&D going then start CIU for whom the bell tolls..... Or should I go for pick targets in my multiballs and focus on lighting blackened?

...yes I have depth issues

Mine is an early run and I'm still sporting both fangs.

#264 6 years ago

Location machines I've seen with drop target issues for sure. Not on mine at home though.

My pro came with fangs and one tooth broke off the first night of playing. I replaced the snake head with Imdarras one with red led eyes, and put mezels fangs with it. Havent had any issues at all since.

I found the broken tooth in the coin box, somehow it rattled down and fell in there.

Been playing my METLE for over a year now & the only problem is that the rest of the collection has been fairly neglected! Never thought I'd buy a NIB...but I'm sure glad I did with this game - ALL TIME GREAT!

#267 6 years ago

Took off the glass and gave my met a good wipe down with N1 today. Replaced the sling spot lamp bulbs with what i hear stern is putting in the new met pro led machines, a warm white double led from CT. I do like it. Been experimenting with differnt GI leds specifically for in the spots. These seem to work really well.

Next sale from CT. Im prob gonna order some both in 555 and 44/47 base and swap out the GI esp in places where u can see the bulb. (Slings, etc). Ive used warm white frosted leds under the plastics in the back corners and thos seem to work pretty good (no hot spots).

I'm thinking of grabbing a METPremium. Would be my first NIB. I've played it a couple of times and really like it, like the music, art etc. Last time I played it i really 'paid attention' since it was on my radar to buy. It was a little floaty...I could chalk it up to it being a pin out on location and not setup right but I wanted to get the take of owners here.

One of the reasons I am shying away from TWD is because its too gruesome for my young kids...Wondering, with a MET dialed down to 'family setting' (or whatever it has) is it appropriate for kids? Thanks guys

#269 5 years ago

1 simple word to answer the original question....................YEP!

If you turn off the adult setting, most of the cursing is beeped in the callouts. Nothing is censored in the song lyrics though. So The f bomb isnt bleeped in the lyrics of the song fuel, etc. My kids (3.5 and 12) play and i dont have any problems with it. I keep the adult language turned off for them.

The older one is mature enough to not repeat stuff she may hear. And the running joke i have with her is the the sparky magnet might pull her braces and stick her face to the glass... Haha.

The younger one just flips for 2 minutes and walks away,

Yes, I am happy, since I have changed the songs.....(sorry for the poor quality cell phone video.)

#273 5 years ago

Mine is a full pimped pro that is played tons and I've had ZERO issues, love it!!!

#274 5 years ago

Got mine last week, first NIB.

Love it so far but am just starting to learn the different modes/rules.

I was playing last night and it occurred to me that it's 'pretty much' hit one of the 4 main items repeatedly and get multiball. Besides lady liberty, are there other 'missions/modes' I should be watching for or is it basically do what you can to start up multiball with each ball?

Either way it's fun and since I'm a very crappy player I assume I'm missing some of the depth.

The good news is that there is a lot more! Collecting items for Crank it Up, getting shots fully lit to make that easier which leads to Seek and Destroy, and a couple I haven't figured out yet.

Love mine. Sold my 1st one a couple of years ago and just got another about a month ago. This time it is staying.

#279 12 months ago

Mine is definitely more interesting now. Die hard Metallica fans should look away...

Don't worry, there is some Disturbed, Volbeat, Poison, etc on there, but when I found out that the Humpty Dance was the right length to fit, I couldn't help myself.
