Hi all. Close to pulling the trigger on a new Pro VE. Talking with the three local pinball stores around me now. Am I doing something wrong or is there no actual page with proper pictures on Stern’s web page? I see Pro, Pro LED (which I assume was the pre-artwork change 2014 era model since it still has the face & drummer), Premium, and LE.

I contacted Stern and they said they have Pro models in stock, so I would assume that the LED VE is the only actual Pro model they are making right now.

Just seems odd that I’m not finding the VE pictures on their site under one of the models.

This is the new playfield art:

And this is the new speaker grill in the Pro VE:

It is the newer metal backbox. But my cab was the older style that was similar to the old style cabs. The corners are constructed the same as my Tron. Obviously mine has a Color DMD and a Luci translite.

The cab art I think is the same as the original. If you want any particular shots, let me know.

Got my Pro VE delivered Friday night. Set it up by 8 pm and modded til 11 pm....then played until 5 am!

Had stuff ordered so it was ready to go:
- shaker motor
- external sub
- pinbits thunderbolts
- coin taker red/yellow LED flipper buttons
- red plastic protectors

Very happy with the mods. The flipper buttons are a perfect accent to the colors, and I can’t even imagine the machine without the shaker and thunderbolts.

Quality wise, everything was pretty top notch. Play field is glass smooth with no wood grain. It is dimpling a lot, but this is my first modern pinball and from what I’m reading, it’s normal and nothing to worry about. I did find one connector underneath that wasn’t fully clipped in.

FYI build date on this was June 2018. Pretty fresh.

Other than that, I had balls keep getting stuck on the little metal spring thing they added up in the bell lane to prevent drains down the middle. Basically at least one per game, and you had to shake it pretty violently to unstick it, causing a tilt. So, with a couple pairs of needle nose pliers, I re-did the angle of the bend in that thing, and since then have only had one get stuck, in probably 50 games.
