I thought the same thing, but they did not mention magnets anywhere in the description of the game.

#3952 1 year ago
Quoted from bigdaddy07:

It looks like a magnet.

Looks like magnet to me. When activated the ball stops short of the standup target and then see the temptress hovering on the plastic above and stopping the ball with her spell.

Ooooooo nice ! I like her stopping my balls

There appears to be 2 magnets in the game. One for the orb and one for the newton ball.

#3955 1 year ago

They actually removed the subway to the lower scoop? Sigh

#3956 1 year ago

It looks like it’s got optos instead of switches on the ramps that’s unusual for stern

those arent magnets, they are just the new style of newton ball stern is using.

#3958 1 year ago

After seeing the pictures leaked on here I wasn't that impressed however after seeing the high resolution pics I think LE owners will be very happy. Should look even better in person with the mirrored backglass and foil decals.

yeah i posted that it didnt have a subway and scoop way earlier in the thread, keith mentioned it on the coast 2 coast podcast right when the pro was revealed. I dont remember who but someone kept insisting it would have a subway even after after the podcast came out, saying it was going to have all the same stuff archer had, ill have to go back through the bajillion posts to remind myself who was wrong lol. LE looks badass congrats to those guys, now bring on the premium cause i want to buy one!

No, it looks like a fixed ball that acts like a target switch itself. It's an orb... get it

It's not just a magnet because the ball is there in that same position in all the photos.

#3961 1 year ago
Quoted from TheWizard00:

Aslong as the Prem has the same physical playfield/features as the LE, Stern are going to be selling this title by the boat load, I am genuinely blown away by how good this looks, Sterns best looking release in a long time, bravo Keith and team you smashed this one out the park!

#3962 1 year ago

So that "orb" ball hits into the target behind it? Or is the target just for aesthetics?

The light above the orb is also RGB.

#3963 1 year ago

So, is the Sphinx’s face a return flap for the Anubis lock? Then drops into the backside of the upper captive ball? The captive ball mech pivots forward? To lock the ball? Looks like it has 2 pop up posts in the back? One under the return on each ramp

OK this makes sense now. If they were magnets, there wouldn't be balls on them in the photos. So these are just fixed balls that act as switches. Curious what holds them in place?

#3965 1 year ago

I don't know guys but that gold armor mock up is waaaay better than the red and completely removes the whole Christmas vibe.

there is a rod going through the middle of the ball, that rod pokes into a hole on the playfields and is bolted underneath the playfield.

It will look awesome especially with the foil decals (they look phenomenal on IMVE & BM66SLE) if not just go down from your LE to Prem, aslong as the Prem has the same playfield features as the LE you wont be missing out, hell even the Pro on this release is knocking peoples socks off.

Just tuned in to see the pics. I think the LE is killer looking myself, not sure why people arent liking it. I think its beautiful!

Easy, give up your order and buy a premium.

#3975 1 year ago

Is getting better with each HD pic !!
Bullet holes in the front near shooter is sweet.

#3976 1 year ago

I'd be COMPLETELY happy with a Pro vs. an LE on this one.

What happened to the 3D stuff we were told about? Layers of 2D art screwed on top of each other are "technically" 3D, but we're grasping at straws here.

I mean, let's create art and put 4 screws into it, then some plastic to block it, then call it a feature?

Then most games since the 80s have had "3D" plastics

I dunno man, I would probably go Prem all day everyday, that lock mech looks pretty damn sweet plus any kind of diverter on a ramp is usually a neat trick especially if it completely changes up the ramp shot - its 2 shots for the price of 1 ramp. Shame there doesn't seem to be a vari target like there was on Archer or the lower scoop but I am nit picking as the whole package on this game looks great!

Saying all that though I don't think anyone going Pro on this release would be disappointed though the Pro itself is a more than competent package!

#3980 1 year ago

This game looks amazing but this “reveal” is a complete dumpster fire!

So stern has yet to formally release any images of LE or PREM but clearly there are leaks all over the place from within since many of you have some or all of the photos. This can not possibly be how Stern wanted these images to hit the market. They have lost total control of the collateral and the timing and the nature of the reveal...how does this even happen? They did so well keeping this thing secret and it’s got amazing press thus far but this turn of events is laughable!

That said I think the thing looks amazing and can’t wait to play it!!! I just feel bad for Stern that this shit show is unfolding. Why haven’t they killed it by expediting their intended reveal? Unbelievable.

Quoted from Rob_G:

Maybe it's intentionally not a spitfire because that would probably require extra licensing costs from whoever owns the rights to the plane.

I have a feeling that’s one of the few things on earth nobody owns the rights to.

Wow man, your standards for “dumpster fire” are pretty low!

Have you checked out the Alien thread lately?

Nothing wrong with this “reveal.” Will be completely forgotten tomorrow.

#3983 1 year ago

LE backglass is SO MUCH better. The art on both is solid, but the cyborg Eddie looks silly no matter who draws it or in whatever context he appears. Way better Eddie representation on the LE.

The premium may knock it out of the park and really hit the sweet spot of features and art, but I have a feeling the lifting ramp might get in the way of the flow of the game, like bicycle girl. I know it's different, but still, is it worth like a 2K difference?

Lol yes the alien thread and the whole debacle with heighway closing is a whole new level of dumpster fire but in a much sadder way. I just can’t imagine any serious product release for any major company getting so screwed up and undermined by consumers. I am thrilled to see the images! Again don’t get me wrong this thing is a slam dunk but man the reveal could have been so much cleaner and frankly commensurate with the level of quality and excitement of the product itself.

Out of curiosity who picks the art themes on Stern machines?

Dude - you are way off on that critique. The launcher there is a flat plastic with a ball deflector on it. The 3D stuff you are talking about is on the backboard... and it's there and MOVES.

While a lot of Sterns reveals could be described as dumpster fires I don't think this is one of them, Stern are not allowed to release these images publically before the licence holder, Sterns hands are tied you do what your licence holder says.

So what better way to get them out in the public domain while keeping your own hands clean, than pass them onto distributors, who will pass them on to customers, who will likely leak them publically and blow the hype train into overdrive, I actually think this was a pretty clever reveal from Stern for once!

Then again it could be a complete fluke and accident after all

Quoted from Guinnesstime:

No idea but the ramp on pro isn't exactly a flow monster. You hit it up there and it can dribble to one side or the other...sometimes not very fast so it really isn't in the middle of a chain of shots or anything.
Raising ramp cool. Ball lock/diverter (?) thing looks cool. Orb is juts a ball sitting there...OK; If it was magnetized that could be cool. Throw in $50 worth of dolls and it's not for me but I'm not a prem+ buyer to begin with.

Quoted from J85M:

They are all dumpster fire on Pinside because Pinside talks itself into a frenzy every time and it's impossible to live up to it.

Like in TWD you can probably deactivate the ramp, to each their own I love the ramp on the TWD gives me two shots for the price of one, but like TWD the Pro with this release looks just as solid as the Prem/LE, its more a choice of flavours than loosing out as each tier looks like a blast!

I can’t tell what’s going on in the right upper loop where the vari target to scoop shot was in Archer. But that must be gone too, right?

I’m sure this will be super fun but the fanatical anti subway bias at Stern is a bummer. It leads to so many “balls bouncing back at you from where you shot it” situations where it seems like a subway should naturally be.

#3992 1 year ago

If this thing is still in my basement 2 years from now I’m gonna fully brass the ramps, habitrails, and all the surrounding armor and it’s totally gonna rule.

#3993 1 year ago

So where does the ball go when you shoot it under the ramp??

#3994 1 year ago

Very curious how the ramp/diverter and newton ball stuff works on the back left half of the playfield

#3995 1 year ago
Quoted from twinmice:

Into a scoop located below the centre jump/lift ramp.

Quoted from Medisinyl:

My Photoshop skills aren't as good as GBs (using GIMP actually), but I wanted to see what Gold looked like. I think I dig it.

You did that in Gimp? Impressed.

#3997 1 year ago

Thanks, but where does it emerge from?

#3998 1 year ago
Quoted from J85M:

Yeah, but where does it exit is the question I think?

#3999 1 year ago

If it's a scoop probably right back out the way it came? Holds a ball in there in MB or something maybe?

#4000 1 year ago

Maybe, I would assume it must as I don't see anywhere else it would come out.
