Quoted from flashburn:

So it records the high score per song played, but the songs aren't modes... that's kind of weird.
Love the gong sound when you hit the center target.

The modes are songs... the song selection at the start is your soundtrack... not your mode. So both songs.. but not same thing.

Watched the stream.

Firstly, congrats to Keith Elwin. It must be a dream to see your creation come to life in front of your eyes and see the world get excited about it.

Playfield layout looks awesome. Cool to see Zach Sharpe smash multiple inner loops in a row.

Agree with Aurich - LCD display looks a little disjointed. Not really a fan of those video game graphics assets. But it is what it is - the action is on the playfield.

And what’s with the sideways Maiden logo on the translite? Looks whack. Make it straight.

Also very good to see maybe a new direction at Stern - something people haven’t mentioned as yet (which is surprising..)

They have adopted more the JJP LE recipe with this release. LE only has minor differences over the pro - no major gameplay differences. This must save them big bucks in having to develop 2x games for each title. Very sensible business decision.

And from my buyers point of view, I hope they continue this way. Pro is what I want to buy. I’m not interested in paying $9000 USD (or $15,000 NZD!!) for ANY pinball machine. That’s why JJP gets none of my money. Doesn’t matter how good/bad they are ... the games are too friggen expensive.

Oh ... the abbreviation for Iron Maiden should be I\m/. That is all.

Quoted from venom112:

So is it me or is MSRP a few hundred higher.

Pro MSRP seems a couple hundy lower?

Anyway, if this is what it takes to have the bubble burst and make people that look at this PF and say "no toys!" I'll gladly take a loss.

#1254 1 year ago

Well it's been quite a day. Congrats all around to everyone. But now it's time to ask the most important question. What is going to be the NEXT Stern title?

Quoted from venom112:

the same was said about TNA and not having even a ramp, and in its defense was argued that it has lot of mechs and the rgb ilumination.
this Iron Maiden game have metal ramps with wireforms, 4 flippers, 3 pops, 2 spinners, rgb ilumination, drop targets, ... I'm missing something?

#1257 1 year ago

Refreshing how there are no band members featured on the machine. If the LCD is the worst aspect of the machine I can live with that.

There are more then just cosmetic differences and Keith talks about them on his interview however I'm not sure if they would be considered major or not. He mentioned the left ramp has a diverter, the center ramp lifts up for a scoop shot, newton ball replaces target by pops, probably a few other things I am missing.

Quoted from jar155:

The music is just aggressively terrible. It's like Rush got drunk and decided to cover some metal. I don't know how people listen to this stuff on purpose.
But hey, the game looks like a clear cut winner in all other aspects. Can't wait to flip around on it.

If you ever saw Iron Maiden in concert you wouldn’t say that trust me, because they are F’ing awesome! I mean i guess if you don’t like Rock N Roll maybe you wouldn’t like them but anyone who likes rock music would love these guys in concert. Nothing but hardcore rockers at a Maiden concert, no snowflakes anywhere in sight!

#1259 1 year ago
Quoted from NeilMcRae:

Absolutely fantastic looking game; just a shame about the terrible music (not trolling mods!), but thankfully pinballbrowswer will help me turn it into Iron Disco, or Disco Maiden!
Neil.

That’s almost treasonous coming from you!!!

Considering the extras you get with the LE, I think it's totally worth it. Compared to the meager offerings with SWLE......

#1261 1 year ago

The female Jackpot voice sounds same as the GoT voice actress.

Liked the artwork, layout and flow, but the music - not a chance for me at home.

The schleps playing in the twitch made the gameplay look a bit too easy and not overly drainy. I wonder how it will be for regular human players.

I'm glad Stern finally ditched the pegs. The absolute worst idea they ever had.

Yeah I get it props to stern for getting more bang for the buck on LE’s. I was just a little surprised to see another price increase so soon. I guess if there is a market for it at those prices cool.

#1264 1 year ago

Looks like vinyl Eddie and cassette Eddie from my high school and college days should expect some company.

#1265 1 year ago

The layout and gameplay look pretty solid! The more I look at the artwork I like it more. If I were to buy one I think I’d have to swap out the songs to another band I just can’t get into Iron Maiden.

Yeah, too bad I can't find one to put a deposit down. If anyone has a source please PM me, all of my usual sources are already sold out.

Edit: Deposit sent, thanks for the PM's! This will be my first LE since Metallica.

There are quite a few mechanical differences on the Premium/LE model on Iron Maiden. It definitely isn't the JJP model.

#1268 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

A few little things here and there.

But not a whole different upper Playfield (GOT) or a under Playfield (AC/DC) etc etc needing a whole different design and major software differences.

You’re getting 95% of the gameplay with the pro. Same as Metallica.

Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:

Right...like I would be first in line for a classic sick-wid-it records pin while 99.9% of pinsters would be vommiting on each other...

In for the Charlie Hustle LE.

Quoted from Aurich:

Here is your Charlie Hustle LE

#1271 1 year ago

I’m surprised that no one has mentioned that Steve Ritchie is the male voice doing call outs. The Shao Kahn voice fits the theme.

#1272 1 year ago
Quoted from Pickle:

Here is your Charlie Hustle LE

Pinball with custom callouts by E-40 would be the most amazing thing ever. I realize most people on Pinside won't really understand that, but if you know E-40 you know he would spit the best pinball callouts in history. He'd invent 7 new phrases to mean jackpot on the spot.

But I get it, lots of people wouldn't feel the theme, they'd complain about the music. And that's fine, that's the problem with music pins. I'd be super stoked, non fans would be like, eh ... pass?

But even though I was already getting a little tired of some songs after the stream, I think Iron Maiden is pretty fitting pinball music, I can roll with it. If you're not a fan, just look at that playfield, and would it really bug you that much? This game's layout is special imo.

Dang it got tied up and missed the live stream, does anyone have a link to watch it?

#1274 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

It definitely isn't the JJP model.

Thankfully so, the pro is still the cheapest price going and with all the features on this pin its impressive. I don't really care about the mechanical differences in this case so like SW I'm fine with the Pro version and I like that, my wallet likes that.

Looks like you can't watch a past stream until it's specifically uploaded? Bet it's up soon.

We'll see how it shakes out, but it's still a far cry from the JJP model.

And if you want 99% of the Premium, I'd have to give that hat to GOTG Pro. The only physical differences that affect the ball are 1 magnet instead of 3, and spinners. I don't think there's a been a Pro with so little physical differences that affect the ball.

#1277 1 year ago
Quoted from Aurich:

I think its safe to say only you would feel the theme in that case Aurich.

Yeah, not much difference in Star Wars, but that's part of the problem with it. The Premium feels like a Pro, and the Pro feels like the Home version.

Still fun to play, but I wouldn't feel I'd be getting my money's worth at any level.

I'm pretty curious to see the Prem, and if I think it plays better I'd consider it, but honestly the Pro looks amazing from a playfield perspective.

I'm already anticipating the "Pro is faster" arguments

It really dont have any more than say a met pro? Yes it has 4 flippers but not much more really? The b.o.m is around the same as most pros but they raised the price a few hundred again.

#1281 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

So by that you mean its actually a good theme? I couldn't resist.

You sir, win an internet.

Nah, I was responding RandomGuyOffCL's post, sick-wid-it is E-40's label, all his albums are on it, as well other members of The Click, he was asking for an E-40 pin, and I was agreeing. So two of us!

But I freely admit Iron Maiden will sell much better. I bet you could sell a Beastie Boys pin to this crowd though. People would be calling for Sabotage Multiball.

I don’t think it is. Didn’t sound like him.

The msrp on sw pro was 6199 and this is 5999 right? How’d the price go up?

#1286 1 year ago
Quoted from tilted81:

I think Stern lowered the MSRP (which is meaningless) but raised the wholesale price to distros.

#1287 1 year ago

Gotcha. Well, that stinks.

#1288 1 year ago

I think I’m a Pro guy.

In fact, Lmk if anyone wants to trade GOT LE for GOT Pro + cash OR SW LE for SW Pro + cash OR X-men LE for X-men Pro + cash.

#1289 1 year ago

Looks like Stern stepped up their game big time and still offer the best bang for the buck in town by far

#1290 1 year ago
Quoted from Aurich:

I bet you could sell a Beastie Boys pin to this crowd though. People would be calling for Sabotage Multiball.

I would consider a Kool Keith pin maybe a Brotha Lynch Hung, Beastie boys where they play instruments I could listen to but not a pin, what do I care I've got an Iron Maiden pin coming.

#1291 1 year ago

Pin feels right......... made me completely forget that Saturday night borring announcement.

Artwork is awesone, to be honest with you I never thought we would see pictures that soon and even less that we would see actual gameplay that same day.......... great job stern

The songs list is dead on...... video animations are super cool and are based on the song selected at the plunge....plus each ball you get to chose a different song. When you go on a mode the song related to the mode switch a la Metallica.....which I always loved.

Callouts voices are creepy and very satifying....... nice touch and fit Perfectly.

The 4 flippers to « climb up » on the playfield and access different shots is refreshing.

Very dear and dream theme to me and was very apprehensive these last few days.

Code is basic, more animations and variety will be implement and deeper modes will eventually arrive in time. But so far nothing but great news to me.

I have to be honnest I have been pushing for that theme for many years and today was The Day Stern did not drop the ball.

Sure buy for me can't wait to see the LE and I NEVER said that before but for that theme, with what we saw so far I really don't mind to pay hundreds of dollars more to get the LE. I usualy go for a Pro, if I really wanna threat myself and get the additionnal toys I might go premium. But in that case even if premium and LE have the same toys I would go LE just for the art I like more. Never say never.

My opinion

How is the music integrated in this pin?

#1296 1 year ago

More like ACDC I according to Elwin's C2C interview.

That didn’t appear to be the case on the stream.

#1298 1 year ago

Is there an archive for the stream? When I go to https://www.twitch.tv/dead_flip, it's just a black screen.

Sorry, I'm not a Twitchey

No archive. I think stern asked him not to archive it.

#1300 1 year ago

I was lucky enough to catch ten minutes worth in my lunch break. I keep refreshing the dead flip page waiting for it to appear in their Twitch archive. Sounds like maybe it won’t (?)
