Watch your wallet, some are quoting 10k.
Better powder coat those leg brackets for that price!

I'm going to put my Iron Maiden next to my Iron Man and see if I can get them to breed.

#1753 1 year ago
Quoted from Aurich:

Just so there's no confusion, ACDC has a bigger speaker sitting in the bottom of the cab, and it sounds fine, but it's nothing special.
TNA has a proper sub woofer, with a tuned ported bass chamber. There's no comparing them. ACDC is incapable out of the box of putting out the bass TNA has.
I can attest to this personally having owned both games now.
Details for the curious: http://www.scottdanesi.com/?p=757

True dat but the point was that Stern is not likely to be “reacting” to TNA, by adding the speaker upgrade on Maiden.
They’ve added this type of upgrade previously.

Quoted from frankmac:

Hope all is well concretehardt !!

OT Concretehardt health update: I wont lie the last 24 hours have been rough! I went back to work part time on Monday and yesterday I had a seizure at work, I spent 7 hours in the emergency room last night having brain scans and blood work. The good news is that the area where my brain tumor was removed looks ok (no bleeding) but the DR thinks that the stress of work is causing my brain to fire faster than what I am able to tolerate and when I push too hard I have a seizure. I am back on my anti seizure meds which is a big setback for me as I hate the way I feel when im on those meds!

Now for the good news.. While I was in the hospital last night I took the opportunity to tell my wife that I just sent a deposit on an $8800 pinball machine (IMND LE). It was the perfect time because I had just had a seizure and she was feeling sorry for me. My plan worked! she was totally supportive of my ridiculously expensive game purchase.

I have made a lot of progress in the last few weeks considering that 5 weeks ago I was telling my wife where I wanted my ashes to be spread and 3 weeks ago I could barely talk.
Yesterday was a big setback in my recovery, but I am very happy to be alive and even with everything I have been thru in the last month I feel very lucky!

The sympathy routine works every time with the Wife. However brother you got to find a better way! Glad you are still with us. I will continue to keep you in our family's thoughts and Prayers. Take it easy. Listen to the doctor. Get better then go back to work. I'm in on an LE as well but I have not told the wife. I think I'm just going to fake back pain or something to get the sympathy approval. Congrats on new game!

What the hell is FeM???? It’s Iron Maiden.... Normally would be IM but we have iron man, so it’s IMDN to differentiate and still is short for iron and maiden.

Fe (Iron Symbol from Periodic Table of the Elements) M(Maiden) is shorter, cooler, and nerdier.

IMLOTB is what it should be.
FeM? umm.... no.
Maiden works for me. That's what fans call the band.

Quoted from Chambahz:

They’ve added this type of upgrade previously.

I mean, who the hell knows, speculating is kinda pointless, but I promise you Stern is definitely paying attention. They've made moves to cockblock other manufacturers behind the scenes, and if they see something is popular they're not dumb, they're gonna try and beat it.

I personally doubt this is a response, it's a band pin and the LE is more expensive than ever, and they're throwing a few bucks at better speakers. Okay, not conspiracy theory fodder really. Lemme know when they add a ported sub to the cabinet and we can talk.

Also, remember it's not just TNA, Alice Cooper uses the sound system too, and no one can't think it's not competition.

As for short names, I think they all suck, I'm not using any of them. Don't be lazy, ffs. If I'm in a hurry I'll just say Maiden.

If you're really milking this, disability discount from Stern?

LMAO I wish Stern offered such a thing! By the time I pay the deductibles on my medical insurance I may be needing to sell a game

Think about it though. FeM is always going to make some think, as in feminine. Also, Fe is not one of the elements or compounds that most ordinary people think about like H2O or CO2 so it would be confusing using FeM.

You just used the lazy abbreviation, TNA.

Maiden i’d just call maiden. It’s 6 letters.

I'm really good at spelling Annihilation right the first time, couldn't say that before!

Of course. That's the ironic second layer. Metal band, metal pin, FeM for the abbreviation. Too good.

If FeM doesn't cut it, I agree that Maiden is the best one.

Shit man you look young...bout my age...wishing you a full recovery!

No concrete proof of this, but I’m highly paranoid about these f’n smartphones glued to our heads all day...I use speakerphone always and try to keep the damn thing away from me as much as possible...and always harping on my wife and daughter to do the same...

FeM is ridiculous and will never happen.

Stop trying to make it happen!!!

I agree IMDN is better.

But FeM is no different to WH20.

Except maybe WH20 sounds good and Fem doesn't.

Not exactly. H2O isn't a chemical element, but a molecule of water. But close!

FeM is just the combination of a chemical element and Maiden. Just as WH20 is a combination of chemical elements and White.

Quoted from Fytr:

This Archer video should answer most of these questions.
» YouTube video

This video is very helpful. You're right. Thanks for embedding it here in a post.

I see some of the functionality of the mechs - more, certainly, than I could see in the stream fragment. At one point I saw a scoop by the right side of the inner loop.

Honestly, the Archer music we hear here would get on my nerves less quickly than the music of Iron Maiden. (No offense, Maiden lovers.)

#1781 1 year ago

#1782 1 year ago

Yeah..IMDN. FeM makes me think of the Fembots on that old episode of the Bionic Woman.

"IRMA" , IRon MAiden (= IRMA) ? ☠️

#1793 1 year ago

This time I think the wheres the code crowd will be silent. Rules are already fleshed out. First release should be complete.

Hold on to your hat when you see someone create a new thread titled “Exciting pinball news about a band who is extremely popular in South America and the lead singer also pilots their plane!”

You know, because otherwise if another thread says Iron Maiden, it’ll get locked

Yes it’s pretty sad that something people always demand is happening.

In other news I just had an amazing breakfast and found $50 on the sidewalk. It was all pretty sad.

It is great that it has happened with this title but I will wait to get excited till it happens on every game for the next year and all past titles are fixed.
