Hi.

I was told my my supplier when I bought a Metallica Roadcase premium that there would be no problem changing the translite to a monster edition later. I pre-ordered it and at the same time ordered a back-box kit from pinball refinery for the monster version. Now I got the backboard light kit and my supplier tells me that Stern will not supply a monster translite.

Is there a kind soul here who have a premium monster translite they can part with or know where I can get hold of one?

That's a real bummer Karl, the Roadcase cabinet with Premium Monster translite combination is how I would want it too. Why won't Stern just sell it that way? At least now I know not wait until alter to address it if I buy one. Best of luck in tracking one down.

Thank you so much for replying to my desperate request.

EricR, beats me. It is not as if this is a limited edition machine. My seller (who imports a lot of machines from Stern was also very confused and surprised). It's like they don't want to make money on this

Stern Has said for some time they wont sell the Monsters Prem translites.

That's what I was told when I went looking for one. I was lucky enough to find a signed one (like the one pictured above) from a fellow Pinsider.

Looks way better than the Pro translite IMO.

Hope you get one. It was sheer luck that I got mine. A fellow collector ordered a road case premium because that was the one he prefers the look of. A monster premium showed up instead. Stern sent him all new decals and art associated with the road case premium. I would have bitched and got an entirely new game. But, luckily for me, he had no interest in the monster translight and sold it to me.

Rock the roadcase translite, it is probably the rarest!

That's the reason I passed on MET

Put the pro monsters translight in your road case edition. It's the best of all the translights anyway (MOPLE aside).

Yeah, if I did not have MOPLE, I would go road case cab wih Pro translite. I ordered a Pro translite just to hang in a Swap Box, in fact.

Problem is that I already have the backbox light kit made especially for the monster premium and I also think the monster premium translite looks a bit better than the pro so I am hoping I do not have to go down that route.

I like the road case too, but no way I could ever convince my wife on that. Lucky for her I like the normal cab art a lot as well. I just think it's silly to pay for a premium and then get the SAME art, SAME trim, and she wants the SAME TRANSLITE as a pro...at. that point, why am I paying 2k extra for the game?

I'd ask Gio if you could return the Premium kit for a Pro kit and then get the Pro translight. He is pretty darn good with customer service it's worth a shot.

It will be on its way on Monday Karl. Glad I could help.

#16 5 years ago

Huge thanks goes out to "idtattoo" for helping a poor soul out. I will salute you all night, man

Gio really is a great guy but I have already bothered him plenty and I would never dare (or want to) send this back to him. (if you are reading this Giovanni, thank you for being so generous to all my nonsense )
but thanks for the suggestion, dude

If someone would be kind enough to scan their monsters translite I would be able to have repros made.

That would be a good backup plan since the pro translite is good too, but it would be nice for someone to just be able to get the cabinet and translite combination they wanted to begin with, LE aside of course.

I'm glad Karl got the one he wanted anyway.

Finally found one for my Roadcase premium that Gio is building for me as well! They are very hard to come by and not cheap! congrats on finding it as i think it along with the roadcase looks outstanding as well!
