Quoted from Frippertron:

Love that left ramp through the pops! That thing is gonna cause fits of rage, in a good way.

Yes!!! Funny that you say that cause the artwork in the pops is the piece of mind artwork!!! Eddy in a straight jacket!! Pretty fitting lol. Sooooo freakin excited

Quoted from Sinestro:

If that's the case, then all Stern titles should get a price drop. I don't see that happening.

It'll be interesting to see where the LE is priced in Europe. Based on US pricing (i.e. price inflation), with no changes to current pricing regime, it might be as much as €1500 more than a PotC LE ... which would be bananas.

The Coast2Coast podcast is mandatory listening... KME explains the game IN GREAT DETAIL... including the rules and potentials. We know more about this game in the first hour than most we know in a month.

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Stern did the pinball world a favor by not revealing this at TPF. It would have pretty much destroyed the entire pinball industry besides Stern.

Easy there Levi.... It's still Iron Maiden....It's still has a limited fan base compared to other licenses. I'm not saying its not a killer game design. I can just imagine if something like this would have been applied to GOTG or Star Wars, then yes other companies would have shit their pants. Stern will steal some sales for sure, but man, they would have swept the industry with another license...

So they wouldn't have destroyed TPF and completely stolen the show with this?

#906 1 year ago

Iron Maiden's Fans are extremely dedicated. This is a CASH COW.

Keith said in the podcast with Nate that Gomez wanted him to come out and do GoTG but he coudlnt get there in time so he got Iron Maiden with Zombie Yeti on art.

Quoted from spinal:

My first impression is that someone put some heart into this machine - farkin nailed the art package! (thank you)

Yep my favorite piece of PF art ever, the whole thing is just fantastic (I almost typed fabulous) I'm gonna wait and play see what the Pre looks like but the rules seem soild and the its striking. Damn it I almost typed fabulous again..........


Stern haters can suck it.

Le comes with Eddie shooter knob and shaker!

#912 1 year ago

Operator bars on the Pro as well. Definitely made huge improvements for a Pro.

#913 1 year ago
Quoted from Whysnow:

if this delivers at 1.0 code it will be awesome!

Elwin said the game should ship with complete 1.0 code, if not then 0.98 code, as he said that they are really far along on the rules.

#914 1 year ago
Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

Iron Maiden's Fans are extremely dedicated. This is a CASH COW.

The sweet spot is a good license with a great game.

Can you imagine if Ghostbusters hadn't been a terrible game? I mean, by all accounts it sold very well, but that was ALL theme. The game blows. If it had been a good game?

You get a license like Maiden AND it's a great game?

Watch out. It's not just Maiden fans who are going to buy this. See = Metallica.

#915 1 year ago

LE's limited to 500 games. Not 666.

Theme and band blow, but I love the art and play field lay out....very innovative by Stern.....I'll probably wait a pick up a premium

#918 1 year ago

Wow. This game (most importantly) looks like fun and they 100% nailed Iron Maiden with the artwork. Kudos to Stern! I thought they were heading the el cheapo route with pinball like the Pittsburgh Pirates. I stand corrected ... especially if they pack some mind blowing features in the Premium and LEs! .

Not a full size image...yet.

Layout looks good. Maybe it will come with some ear plugs.

I thank the pinball gods for that chain of events

#923 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

It still could be with some good code. I dig the layout. However, as it sits, you are 100% right.

#924 1 year ago

profesional great looking art, beautiful playfield full of features with actual flow, that list of songs (for those that like the band) ... I don't know what to say, damn.
I might start saving for this baby...

#925 1 year ago
Quoted from lodgingdolphin:

How do you know? is the feature matrix out? oops damn this thread is moving fast.. never mind just saw matrix above.

#926 1 year ago
Quoted from gliebig:

At first glance, I thought it was another Metallica tweak/repackage like GotG. I looked closer and realized how wrong I was. Why in the heck would you want earplugs??? IM is a great band! Their hits are among the most friendly to those that dislike metal. Unless you cannot stand overall metal sound, give them another shot!

#927 1 year ago

So which acronym is going to take root, IMLOB or my favorite SPIMLOB?

#928 1 year ago

Stern upping their LE game.

It might be in monetary terms but I know which I would rather play!

#930 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

So they wouldn't have destroyed TPF and completely stolen the show with this?

Yes it would have. All I am saying is if this would have been a generally more broad license with bigger fan base then yes, it would have swept the industry. Stern has definitely stolen sales from everyone with this release. Another license could have swept even more .

#931 1 year ago

I'm pretty impressed with all the sound system upgrades along with the audio out...

#932 1 year ago

What's the story with the "industry first" hit-detecting newton ball - how is it different than a regular old captive ball?

#933 1 year ago

Looks like Stern is actually trying to create value for their LE's....good to see

#934 1 year ago

Some of the LE features... Battlefield themed hand drawn mirrored backglass, HD brushed foil battlefield cabinet art (I just jizzed myself), shaker, invisa glass, art blades, JBL sound system with EQ, eddie shooter rod... holy shit the LE is loaded!

Quoted from RGR:

So this wont out sell ACDC or MET???

No it won't. Not enough Iron Maiden / Pinball Fans out there for that. The music is very unique. ACDC will be Stern top seller for quite some time until it gets shelved to 2nd place.

#936 1 year ago

That's the best looking game to come out of Stern in years, huge applause. The design and layout of that playfield scratches me right where I itch.

#937 1 year ago

Not a Maiden fan but I may be buying this one.

It’s IMDN. It’s been IMDN for a long time.

If your theory is correct, doesn't it make sense to give crappier games the "home run license," whatever you think that may be? Those people will buy the game anyway (see Ghostbusters) which is my point. Everybody is gonna buy this because a) they must have the license, or b) they want to buy the best game. Like I said before, that's the perfect storm.

I kinda feel like the time for arguing about licenses is over - it's irrelevant. Time to bask in the awesomeness of this reveal.

I am super happy they brought back the support rails for the PRO!

Ok how much $$$$????

The band's discography has grown to thirty-eight albums, including sixteen studio albums, twelve live albums, four EPs, and seven compilations.
the band have sold over 100 million copies of their albums worldwide.
"Top 20 Metal Bands". The band also won the Ivor Novello Award for international achievement in 2002 and were inducted into the Hollywood RockWalk whilst touring in the US in 2005.
Oh and they have been going since 1975.... Nah cant have that many fans...

Is the art better on this pin? Hell yeah
Is the playfield better? Hell yeah....

#944 1 year ago

Congrats to the Iron Maiden pinheads - they seem to have done the theme right!

Well I understand the whole metal angle and not a popular view, but I wish it had plastic ramps. Looks like fresh blood in the game though...finally.

#947 1 year ago

Wonder if this will get the world under glass approval from K.

#948 1 year ago

audio line out & playfield support bracket even on the pro

I wish I could buy this. I listened to a few iron maiden's songs yesterday. Really not my cup of tea and with that said... Not buying. Ghostbusters has a much broader audience than Iron Maiden but they screwed the pooch.

Still can't compete with ACDC. Name me 10 iron maiden songs that have played on a top 40 main stream radio station (Not the Rock Station).

Will did game sale, absolutely. Will it surpass ACDC, no way in hell.
