All those chrome nuts are bling, baby!
Waiting to see it in person, hard to judge the shiny cabinet finish and colors from pics for sure. A little disappointed in the side-art just in terms of the use of the plane, "oh boy fuselage!" ...said nobody ever. A diving plane lighting up the front end with bullets with a maniacal Eddie would have been way cooler, or even just something like the head side-art with a large Eddie in the cockpit. I guess I'm less fond of a bunch of Eddie's running around when you can put the focus on one really cool one. Not saying the actual drawing isn't amazing, just not that thrilled with the framing I guess.
I have to say I was sort of expecting the sarcophagus ball lock to be a molded piece, but I guess since the top is a functional ball path as well you can't really do much with it. Still looks great. Really hard to see the differences in the backplane plastics and lighting from pictures too. I imagine the 3D effect is much cooler in person.
All in, a really sweet looking game. Excited to see what the Prem is going to look like for sure, though I really love the idea of the LE's mirror backglass.
..oh, and relegating the designer's signature to a sticker on the apron is total bunk, sorry. I love seeing that signature under the clear on the playfield. Totally cheapens it IMHO.
