Quoted from pinballbrat:

I'm thinking about putting my Metallica Pop Vinyls as toppers on my pin. Possibly something like this?

Funco Pops aren't for everyone, but the cool thing about modding is we each can mod to our own taste.

#17602 63 days ago
Quoted from Pinballerchef:

Agreed. Those are goofy looking. MET needs a badass topper.

There's this one:

It’s fun to look at but it doesn’t kill it for me. I have yet to see a MET topper that just blows me away. There are many nice topper choices out there tho.

It's a blue plasma tube. On all the time with the flickery electric chair vibe

Is spinny-vinny still around? I messaged him about his ramp snake MOD but no reply after a few days.

Hi Guys, Just to let you know, I believe Vinny is getting out of the Met mod business as he is inundated with his principal job. I was in the same boat as you not too long ago until he finally got back to me.

Was wondering if this would happen - Last night the grave marker cracked open on my Metallica Pro, leaving the metal bracket exposed at the end of the inline drops (which I don't think would be good for the ball). Has this happened to others here? Is finding a replacement part my only option here? I've only seen it listed at Marco and they're out of stock. I don't think Crazy Glue will last very long as a fix here. Just seems like a bit of a design flaw to leave the bottom of the cross thin and hollow to accommodate the flasher.

#17615 52 days ago

Mine broke a month ago and I bought the one from Marco.
Problem was the holes didn't line up with my bracket. Mine was 1 of the wooden backbox models so maybe they changed something with the newer ones.

#17616 52 days ago

Mine has been broken for a while as I keep forgetting to order a new one. Have not noticed any extra wear on the balls.

#17617 51 days ago

My cross broke too and I've been thinking about gluing it and then reinforcing it somehow, like maybe filling in the back with jb weld.

#17618 49 days ago

Thanks guys. Hopeful Marco gets some in stock soon. If I get one might tinker with ways to reinforce it so it lasts a bit longer.

#17619 49 days ago
Quoted from embryon:

If it turns out well then yes I'd be in on that. I'll post my final designs when done. Thanks fir your interest btw

Lookin forward to it

#17620 49 days ago

I am 99% sure no one is going to want this but you never know! I have crated my custom met code with electronic music, I call it Electrollica. Here is the track listing, shoot me a pm if you want to give it a go.

Anyone noticed a bug in the Crank it Up modes (and maybe elsewhere?) where you get an extra ball with a scoop shot, the machine acknowledges the extra ball as normal, but the extra ball is not actually awarded after draining? It’s happened to me a couple of times recently. Super annoying.

Do you have max extra balls set? I noticed something similar but I was hitting my max before that

I have seen this, and thought the same. I didn't check, but I know I had several extra balls that game.

#17624 47 days ago

Ahh...mystery solved. Thanks. It always happens in an epic (for me) game, so that makes sense.

LoL... I've experienced the exact same thing to the point where I tried counting. Then I figured to turn off max balls and I've never noticed this again.

Nope, I can never make the damn scoop shot

Not specifically related to Metallica Pin - Anyone have a 7" 45 rpm of Metallica Whiskey in the Jar they want to sell?

I'm rejoining the group, boys! I sold my machine when I was moving (had to sell the whole collection), but am getting the very same one I sold back this Thursday. I can't wait to play again.

#17631 40 days ago

One for the metal headz !

Im a fan and missed this one. I think it was just before James meltdown

Awesome, I did the same thing and I'm picking another up today! It's a Metallica LE, but not the same one I owned originally. Can't wait!

Congrats. I'm excited because I put the total light mod in mine, plus color dmd and other essentials things like snake decals, teeth, and ramp snake decal. It will be nice to have the old girl back.

Never wanted to sell this one. Still some of the best callouts in pinball.

3000 plays strong and I finally had to shut down for the night due to issue. Where is the quality control stern ????

LOL, and not even a stern rubber ring

#17636 30 days ago

Found a MET HUO Premium for $6250 plus tax. Is that a decent price or a bit much?

Yea, these Mets run good....
we have over 4k plays on ours from new, never an issue, except one led died.
Clean n wax every 500, serviced drops at 3k, just put new rubber kit on at 4k

Sounds like a good price to me, assuming it's in good condition. Love my premium.

#17639 30 days ago

That's $6851 CAD after tax..
$5045 USD ...GO get that beauty!! Id say it's a good deal

Oops, I meant $6250 USD.

#17641 30 days ago

haha.. stoner! (Me,not you!) What tax you have to pay? And what about shipping?

#17642 30 days ago
Quoted from Soulstoner:

Sounds like your getting it from a dealer, not a private transaction. You can expect a dealer to charge a bit more since it is their livelihood, but typically if it does not work after you get it home or something breaks soon after they will fix it for you. (ask about their policy)

#17643 30 days ago
Quoted from Soulstoner:

Yes, the plus tax is a concern. Coming from a dealer? FWIW, I bought my Met premium HUO from an individual several years ago for $5700. I felt like it was a very good deal at the time.

Quoted from LOTR_breath:

Yes plus 5% tax and shipping. All together will be about $6700 USD.

Also yes from a dealer.

I’ll probably pass as I’d rather a NIB IMDN or DP Pro at that price I think.

Stern has been building Metallica off/on since 2013 and it is likely their best seller to date and only announced last year they were finishing up. (...until they vault it) A good deal will come along eventually, so don't be afraid to pass on a bad deal.

#17646 26 days ago

I’ve only read about it, but after nearly 3 years (3 days shy) from they day I bought it, I have reached The End of the Line!!!

Full disclosure: Outlanes closed, extra balls at factory (had 2 more after end of the line, seems like a lot), snake set to hold a ball when 2x scoring, 6.5 to 7 degree playfield. Everything else factory.

If you decide to buy it, tell the dealer you want them to provide you with a new magnet board in addition to the one in the machine as a backup just in case you have issues down the road.

new owner! Just got a met pro (non led).

Looks like its pretty much factory.

Apart from the diverter fix are there any must do fixes/updates for a vanilla pro?
Any must have mods?

Check and make sure you have the newest code installed.

Quoted from allsportdvd:

I recently replace the stock square block on my LE for the regular newton ball and assembly from pinball life. Now I regularly get airballs onto the Graveyard predominantly. Has anyone else experienced this upon swapping and if so, what was your solution?

Quoted from Apex:

Check to see if the captive ball is sitting too low. The centerline of the ball in play has to be below the centerline of the captive ball or else every hit to it wants to bounce the ball in play up when it rebounds.

Does anyone have any suggestions on the best way to raise the captive ball? I replaced the block with the captive ball from pinballlife a few months back and have also been getting airballs into the graveyard area. I am thinking of putting washers in somewhere...
