I’m down for an LE, can’t wait... sadly the shipping to Australia brings an extra month of waiting.

Our distributer here received 70 LE’s.

Thanks for pulling yourself away from that beautiful machine so you can share your pics. Much appreciated.

Quoted from Bronty:

Interestingly it looks like my play field was originally intended for a LE? It’s got a sticker saying it’s 28/1000.
Also, thoughts on serial numbers? I think the first digit must mean it’s an SE no? Meaning I got SE #2 off the line, I think. (Considering they’ve only made 150 SEs so far, there’s no way 2001 machines came before it).
[quoted image][quoted image]

I don't think 28/1000 equates to being an LE (pretty sure their are 1250 LE's) . The playfields are probably produced in batch's of 1000. Playfields I'm sure are identical between all models..

Pin stadiums are brilliant and add extra tricks that diy can’t offer, but they are definitely over priced. I have made a full RGB set, magnet equiped, wifi adapter and colour changing app for about $35 Australian dollars. Look brilliant.

Quoted from Pale_Purple:

Just curious what reprocessing means here, did you remix or master the files or were they being too compressed?

I would have thought it was simply a bump in the files amplitude

Quoted from Pablouk:

Oohh the numbers are getting high (1190) the UK models cant be that far away?
Is there any CGC employees that can comment on the UK delivery timings?

I don’t think they’re being built sequentially. -1190 and 360(odd) unboxed within a few days?

I’m in Oz and still yet to hear anything solid. I believe 60 are coming here. Cant wait!!

Quoted from ercvacation:

Anyone have any clue how many more Le's they have to make? Sick of waiting!

60 still are needed for Australia.

Quoted from Bublehead:

For those who may have been AWOL from this thread, let me fill you in...
I ordered a MBrLE on October 19, 2018, while at Expo, 3 minutes after my distributor opened up taking orders.
6 months roll by...
Bublehead is reduced to a quivering pile of batha poo-doo as he waits, somewhat impatiently, for delivery of his non-number matched LE.
To cope with his Macrophobic induced anxiety, he starts writing a comedic daily adventure of his waiting exploits...
This is what you have stumbled upon. This is the meat-stuff of a man, a simple, average pin-head, forced to wait on the Christmas gift he purchased for himself in 2018 and has yet to receive. It is pointless to complain on here, it falls on deaf ears. So I figure, lets fill the void with silliness and humor, because if I didn’t, I fear I would be reduced to sitting in a corner, thumb and blankie in mouth and hand, crying softly into the flanel.
This is just how I cope...

Count yourself lucky you’re not waiting an extra month for shipping to Australia. Like many others here, i put my deposit down day 1 also.

For those in the US still waiting on their LE's, take it with a grain of salt but I would be expecting them in the next few weeks. Us Australians have been advised that ours will ship in approx 2 weeks. Sadly international 220-240v are at the end of the production queue so I can only assume the remaining 110v will be done shortly before or after this. Given a month of shipping on top, it's been a hell of a wait, but seemingly not much longer.

#4957 5 months ago

What a disappointing event. Really sorry

How does this shit happen, what a hit it must have taken.

Hope you receive a replacement asap.

Quoted from psexton:

Newbie question here. How do you install the tilt bob in this game? The rod is not threaded like a jersey jack game and I do not see any part in my coin box that would keep the tilt bob from sliding down the rod.

Mine didn't come with a tilt bob or clip to secure it. Spoke to CGC and one is on the way... (apparently).

#5840 58 days ago

That is so freakin awesome seeing your little man help you unbox your MB. My young boy has played my MBRLE a few times but he's yet to fully appreciate all the goodness. Enjoy mate, that's super awesome!!!!!!!!!!!!! Super envious of your setup, looks f'n amazing!!!

#5851 57 days ago
Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Installed PDI glass , man what a difference.. the colors pop more and it really does feel like there isn't a piece of glass in between.

I did the same. The difference between standard and anti reflective glass is massive.

#5857 55 days ago
Quoted from JOESCHALL:

Question on this PDI glass--can it be cleaned just with Windex? I ask because I'm considering some for my MBR. I'll be routing my machine (don't shoot me!) and they'll be cleaning the glass occasionally, so I just want to be sure it doesn't require the special cleaner sold by PDI.

I think they recommend Isopropyl.

Honestly for LE and premium prices HD glass should just be included.. but just my two cents.

Totally agree!!

Anyone had a problem with switch 84: Frank table up? Frank is refusing to lie down. I’ve tested the switch in diagnostics and it’s fine as is the switch next to it (83 or 85?). The frank motor seems to rotate smoothly.

#5934 38 days ago
Quoted from CUJO:

Will updating the FW to 1.03 wipe out the Grand Champion and other hi scores?

Just updated the firmware and no it doesn’t wipe the high scores.

Some nice extra features with better volume control, allowing lower volumes.

Further control over the shaker motor and so far I’m yet to get a SDTM from the scoop.

Easy update and definitely worth it.

#5935 38 days ago

I had a problem with switch 84 (Franks table) which was refusing to lay down. Turns out the physical switch boat position was impeding the motor spinning around, gave the switch body a push away from the motor and it now works perfectly.

#5973 33 days ago
Quoted from SkaterVet:

Installed the new software update.
The knocker is much better. It’s still not the same as a real knocker, but for me it is close enough.
I’m very happy with the ability to increase the shaker length and strength. I simply went with longer and left the strength alone. It is a huge improvement over the original settings.
After the update, I did need to reinstall my custom logo and reduce my flipper strength again, but those appear to be the only settings that did not carry forward.
Thanks for the update CGC.

Change to “Shaky”, much better

#5991 31 days ago
Quoted from gmagno:

I have the card ready to perform the update. Any insight on the random loss of high scores? There must be a logical reason. Waiting on feedback before potentially wiping my scores.

Can’t help you on the “potential” side, but at worst you lose them, but gain a better pin.

Quoted from CHIEF1893:

Fellow Pinsiders,
Proud owner of MBrLE #106. Phenomenal game love it to death.
Only small issue is the speakers are creating a buzzing sound from middle of playfield area, well i believe thats where its coming from. Definitely not the speaker itself. And if course the dracula feet issue small things that can be adjusted.[quoted image]

I've noticed the same recently, let me know if you find a solution

Has someone got a close up pic of the playfield showing a decent reflection on the clear coat? This is my first NIB so I have no reference point other than 30 year old B/W and a couple of restored games. But the playfield shows a very obvious texture to it which seems to transfer into the clearcoat. Almost like the wood texture (planking?) below. I have a, unpopulated CPR WW playfield and it's super smooth, whereas the MB isn't.

Running you finger left to right, you can feel texture, not so when running top to bottom.

I've added some pics, the close up showing the smooth inserts shows a good comparison. This “texture” is pretty consistent over the entire playfield.

Quoted from Lounge:

Wow.... have you contacted CGC?

Should I?

#6123 18 hours ago

As mentioned I haven’t thought anything of it until today when I took a close look some CPR and Mirco playfields

#6124 18 hours ago

Can’t really see the clearcoat reflection from that angle lounge

#6137 7 hours ago
Quoted from whthrs166:

That is what is referred to as a “Ribbed Playfield” that sucks my friend.

And that’s a manufacturing issue and should be fixed? Just wondering where I stand.

#6140 4 hours ago

ltg any thoughts?

Ticket submitted to CGC and email sent to local distributer. Discovered a local buyer of a MB remake had a similar issue, CGC replaced it with an entire populated playfield. Hoping for a similar solution.

#6145 4 hours ago
Quoted from LTG:

Your ticket wasn't alerted to anybody. I alerted it to Edwin. He's at CGC, he'll see it goes to who it needs to.
LTG : )

Thanks mate.
