Alrighty then, let’s get to it!

4F290EE3-338F-4776-A9A0-C8EE055101F1 (resized).png

Edit: Rumor I am hearing now is that Stern will actually reveal IMDN this Tuesday.


From TWIP this morning..
“*Ok, these are RUMORS so take them with a grain of salt, but here is what we’re hearing through the grapevine:
The reveal will happen TOMORROW (Tuesday) at around 10:00 AM (not sure which time zone, guessing Central)
The reveal will be coming from Rolling Stone
The goal is for Dead Flip to stream the machine TOMORROW (Tuesday) afternoon, subject to last second licensor approval
If these are true, we could be watching this machine in action, like, tomorrow!! Stay tuned…”

#29 1 year ago

I anxious to see this game, but what I really want to know is who is doing the code for IMDN?

#92 1 year ago
Quoted from thunderking50:

Like i said before Lyman or i am out ! Well at least untill a few years if the code is ever done,finished and awesome

This has been my feeling, but if they unveiled “Titanium Man” with 1.0 code (Keiths code well implemented) I would consider breaking my Lyman rule.

#207 1 year ago

Damn is that Keith kicking ass on BM66 right now

#223 1 year ago

Dude just ask if he had more "Boner"

#227 1 year ago

2 more games and then a "special announcement"

#242 1 year ago
Quoted from chad:

Me too not working

I had to reload it 3 times on my iPad until it finally started working.

#291 1 year ago

Sorry for this thread guys.. we just found out what we already knew

#519 1 year ago
Quoted from spinal:

Jack Danger immediately after the video was shown:
"This is freaking amazing!"
Is it just me or does anyone else feel uncomfortable watching a room filled with people feigning excitement over something they all knew a year ago in order to make a stream to viewers who all knew this a year ago?
And all to a video showing the text "Iron Maiden" followed by the text "Stern Pinball"? Have I slipped into some alternate dimension?

It’s not just you! I swear I was waiting for Rod Serling to step out of the shadows...

#541 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

Hey buddy leave deadflip alone. Maybe Danger is his middle name


#543 1 year ago

Hmm interesting! This is from another thread on IMDN

Quoted from PinB:

Keith Elwin is the designer & ruleset creator. Implementing his ruleset will be Rick Naegele as lead programmer.
This was all according to Gomez who announced this during his TPF presentation when he showed a pic of the next game’s design team.

#600 1 year ago

Well it sounds like the rumor is for an actual reveal on Tuesday... Stern just says coming soon on Facebook.
Bring on the low res grainy pictures!

#607 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

I think TronVE would do very well.

Tron VE with new art, LCD and lighted ramps... We need to will this game into existence!

#612 1 year ago

From TWIP this morning:

“What We’re Hearing about the pinball machine:

that Iron Maiden will be the next title released
that Keith Elwin is the designer
that Zombie Yeti is the artist
that it should ship with v1.0 code (!)
that Lyman Sheets is on code…and that Keith Elwin is on code?
Explanation: we first heard that Lyman was on code, but we also saw this post by Elwin on Tilt Forums which indicates Elwin himself is doing the rules. Perhaps it is something where they’re working together on rules?
that it may have four flippers
that it may be based on the layout from Archer, a home-brew machine designed previously by Keith Elwin

Are all these rumors correct? No, probably not. Hearing now that it may not be Lyman on code at all – that Elwin did the rules and someone else is implementing and programming those rules. We should find out soon. Speaking of that…


Ok, these are RUMORS so take them with a grain of salt, but here is what we’re hearing through the grapevine:

The reveal will happen TOMORROW (Tuesday) at around 10:00 AM (not sure which time zone, guessing Central)
The reveal will be coming from Rolling Stone
The goal is for Dead Flip to stream the machine TOMORROW (Tuesday) afternoon, subject to last second licensor approval
If these are true, we could be watching this machine in action, like, tomorrow!! Stay tuned…”


#616 1 year ago
Quoted from pin2d:

A little clarification - I posted that snippet a few weeks ago, and we're now hearing that it may not be Lyman on code at all – that Elwin did the rules and someone else is implementing and programming those rules. We'll see soon

I just updated the post, thanks for the morning TWIP update!

#626 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

Information, game matrix and Pro should be debut tomorrow on Tuesday and Jack Danger at Stern pinball live.
I'm hearing the LE version is going to be the most packed with goodness in quite awhile.

Another rumor I just heard is that a majority of the IMDN LE will be going over sea's.

#632 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

Imagine if the LE only has the special Riggs art

I might buy 2 LE's

#693 1 year ago

Deposit placed on an IMDN LE and I am as nervous as I have ever been for a game reveal. This game could be incredible, please Stern don’t blow this one!

#713 1 year ago

Somebody get Mr. Danger a throat lozenge.

#718 1 year ago

So it sounds like we will definitely see IMDN pro tomorrow, I am hoping we also get to see pics of the LE along with feature matrix.

#808 1 year ago

I just peed a little.. this game looks awesome!

#819 1 year ago
Quoted from zucot:

Song list
Aces High
2 Minutes to Midnight
The Trooper
Wasted Years
Can I Play With Madness
Number of the Beast
Run to the Hills
Hallowed Be Thy Name
Flight of Icarus
Rime of the Ancient Mariner
Fear of the Dark

Ok I just fully pissed my pants! I am 1000% in on this game!.. LE for me (dream theme!)

#824 1 year ago

with 500 LE's and a large portion of them going over sea's I bet the LE's sell out today!.. Cant wait to see the LE Cab art and mirrored backglass!!

oh yea and THANK YOU STERN!

#922 1 year ago
Quoted from InfiniteLives:

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.

I thank the pinball gods for that chain of events

#925 1 year ago
Quoted from lodgingdolphin:

Le comes with Eddie shooter knob and shaker!

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

#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!

#955 1 year ago

Matrix says "color accentuating LED's" do we know if the game will have any RGB LED's?

#979 1 year ago
Quoted from fantarama:

you must be rrreally good at seeing dicks in abstracts forms... I can't find it. could you hightlight 'em?

Ok gotta admit that’s funny chit!

#1273 1 year ago

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

#1301 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

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

Oh man please tell me this isn’t so

#1305 1 year ago
Quoted from arcademojo:

Posted on there Facebook page. There will be no other airing of this one. Sounds like they wern't allowed to. Caught about 10 minutes of it and very impressed.

I don’t suppose anyone was able to capture any of the stream, not sure if it’s even possible?

#1353 1 year ago
Quoted from Sparky:

Here is one minute of the stream posted on Instagram by mannys_arcade.

Awesome.. Thanks!

#1358 1 year ago

So when Stern says Battlefield mirrored Backglass I’m guessing it will be
The Trooper?

#1502 1 year ago
Quoted from flamehead:

I guess the question I have is for all of the Iron Maiden Naysayers... How fast did the Metallica LE sell out?

Similar amount of time.. most distros were sold out of METLE on day of release. The only distro I saw with IMDN LE had raised the price today to $9299.00 and that did not include shipping.

#1505 1 year ago
Quoted from frankmac:

How many maiden LE will be made?

IMDN LE Rumor is:
250 going over seas
200 staying in the US
50 going to the band

#1514 1 year ago

Ok this Iron Maiden craziness on Pinside has officially gone too far!!

#1564 1 year ago
Quoted from BoJo:

$8700-8800 delivered (comes with a tube of K-Y jelly)

Wait!, what? I didn’t get a tube of KY with my LE.. this is bullshit, I calling my distro!

#1570 1 year ago
Quoted from arcademojo:

So you're saying there still is one left!

Yep here you go, make sure to get a shipping quote on the LE before you order

#1590 1 year ago
Quoted from bigd1979:

Matrix says all models have the sane sound upgrades i believe...

From what I have been told the LE only has upgraded JBL speakers and EQ.

#1728 1 year ago
Quoted from JY64:

Distributors have dropped the price of DI $500 that is not a good sign

DILE is $8500 shipped now??

#1748 1 year ago
Quoted from frankmac:

I read earlier today it was sold out.

The only Distros I have seen with any LE’s left have jacked the price up by $500+ dollars.

#1754 1 year ago
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!

Quoted from vireland:

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

#1813 1 year ago

My money is on IMDN

#1816 1 year ago
Quoted from MinusWorlds:

As it should be. How you’re feeling okay dude

Yea I’m hanging in there, I go back to see my neurosurgeon next week. I am hoping they back down my anti siezure meds as they make me feel like a zombie. I have a couple mods to install on my BM66 but I just don’t have the energy to do it, maybe tomorrow.

#1823 1 year ago

I was thinking about this poll, I had originally voted for The Trooper, but Killers would of also been amazing.. sounds like we are getting The Trooper?

506AEE4F-5540-49CA-B761-F02E23E33490 (resized).png

#1827 1 year ago
Quoted from Chambahz:

No way will Stern use the Pro translite for the LE package.

I agree, I assume the Le will have slightly modified (brushed alum) Trooper cab decals and the mirrored glass will be The Trooper “Battlefield” art. I don’t know of any other Battlefield art for Maiden besides the Trooper (which is extremely bad ass)

#1831 1 year ago
Quoted from bigduke6:

I kind of hoping this isn't the way they go but,

I hope that’s not it.. it’s not technically a “Battlefield” Stern please don’t over think this and don’t even think about giving us a LOTB backglass and cab art package!.. bring on The Trooper LE!

#1833 1 year ago
Quoted from Asael:

I Hope it‘s something like this:

Ok that is very cool! Where did you find that? I have not seen it before.

#1838 1 year ago
Quoted from BoJo:

Regardless no matter what they choose there will be plenty of people complaining cause they don't like it.

Quoted from Azmodeus:

One of my brain surgeries.
Again , reach out anytime, my friend.

Mike I know how that feels
I will shoot you a PM today

#1882 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

I love everything about this game except the music. On a serious note, I am wondering if it would be possible for Stern to secure the Archer license and do a "Archer Pinball" with what was supposed to be Archer from the start. Stern could use same design and layout like they did for Shrek and Family Guy. I would have pulled the trigger on an Archer, but I am on the fence with IMDN. I honestly think I would have to put in some System of Down or something via pinball browser just to tolerate the music.

I guess I feel dumb asking this but who the heck is Archer? Seems like I’m the only one who doesn’t know.. Is Archer a TV show in Europe or something?

#1889 1 year ago

Beautiful playfields!!

#1900 1 year ago
Quoted from Eskaybee:

For those that aren’t fans of the music but want to own or like this pin. Have a listen to Powerslave album from start to finish. Don’t do any of that BS download a couple random songs and listen to 10 second spurts. Maiden was around in the time where albums actually meant something to listen to from start to finish. And If that does nothing for you, then there’s no hope, spend your time and money elsewhere

Agreed, Maiden songs tell a story.

#1921 1 year ago
Quoted from BooDog:

This forum is reminding me of when the WWE Wrestlemania pinball was released. A majority of the thread was about how they hated the license without giving the pinball a chance. Wrestlemania deserved the hatred. Play it before you hate it.

Man I have never felt so lucky to be a Maiden fan! This game looks awesome!! and it’s a band I love to boot

#1931 1 year ago

Ok Stern What else havnt you shown us yet??

(Box) Up the Irons!

#1999 1 year ago
Quoted from frankmac:

Does this qualify as a battlefield ?

Oh Damn that's cool! where did you find that? That would make sense for the LE BG... I really like it!!

#2025 1 year ago
Quoted from rotordave:

I thought about this - I got an idea that would give Stern a pass.
They could say:
“Stern Pinball has partnered with The Pinball Outreach Project in their quest to provide pinball machines to needy children. We will be donating the proceeds of Iron Maiden LE #666 to this worthy cause. As such, we will be increasing the production run to 666 games to make this happen.
Iron Maiden LE #666 will be sold by public tender process, starting 1 May 2018 and ending on 5 May. The highest bidder will own this great piece of Iron Maiden memorabilia and he supporting our favourite charity.
Stern Pinball supports The Pinball Outreach Project and looks forward to partnering again with them in the future”
Wow. That sounds pretty good if I do say so myself.
Accent the positive
Eliminate the negative
Boom - 165 more pins at say 7500 wholesale = $1,235,000 smackers for Gary. Win.

Love the idea of Stern donating a pin to needy children but the rest would just be a cash grab! LE’s are supposed to be limited and 500 barley qualifys.

#2030 1 year ago
Quoted from PW79:

Didn’t they double the Batman LE’s after they sold out?
I know it happened to a game. Not sure which one tho

I think originally there was gunna be 30 SLE BM66 anniversary games
but Stern added 50 anniversary of BM66 - 80 SLE games is still very limited run!

#2038 1 year ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Leaving $$$ on the table is what makes it "limited" and allows them to sell them for more $$$ and bigger profits in the future. The worst thing they could do is continue to try and squeeze every dime out of every product while destroying the future secondary market in the process.
When you keep raising prices you better do something to make it more desirable.
No they got it right this time.


#2092 1 year ago
Quoted from PW79:

I fired up Iron Maiden on Spotify today in hopes to find a new appreciation for this mullet music
Still sucks (IMO, no offense, Geneva convention, etc)
Those of you claiming to be fans... do you like the actual music or do you just like the "heavy metal" image/stereotype?
I'm likely to buy one if coded well & the Premium is loaded with ill shit + Egypt art, which rumors support.
But dang, are you Maiden fans really fans?

I don't like broccoli, I tried it again last night and its horrible! Question for you guys who claim to like broccoli, are you pretending to like it to make your wife happy by eating what she cooks? or are you just a poser pretending to eat things that are good for you? I guess what I am trying to say is that if I don't like broccoli its bad!... and you shouldn't like it either!

#2146 1 year ago

Looks like more IMDN game play video was just posted..

#2184 1 year ago
Quoted from jkdblaze:

I actually feel kinda bad for you guys who hate Maiden's music. Looking at that playlist of 12 songs that I have loved for so many years, and the thought of playing a pin designed around it is incredible to me. I will probably have tears of joy streaming down my face playing this game!

Does the Prem/LE have any RGB led’s?

RGB LED’s is very good news!

#2752 1 year ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

Aerosmith works but Iron Maiden let you down? Kiss? Come on man.

Exactly what I was thinking

#2826 1 year ago

Ok I just listened to K-Man’s podcast and the rumor from him and a few others on Pinside is that the artwork on the LE is shown on Sterns flyer (bottom Pic) I’m am skeptical as the feature matrix doesn’t say “Battle themed art” It says “Battlefield themed art on Backglass and cab”. I am not sure if the Stern flyer below (bottom pic) qualifies as battlefield themed? The top pic seems more like a battlefield theme to me.

Here is the bottom of the banner, possibly premium on left and le on right? I’d like that pic posted above the best also.

Edit: Never mind this just the right side of the Pro Translite from what I can tell.

Quoted from pauloz:

Am I the only one who doesn’t care about what artwork is going to be on the LE? Totally don’t give a rats, I just want it in the games room.

I believe the LE will look amazing! Remember the band is keeping 50 LE’s and who knows more about kick ass Maiden art than IMDN. No way they are going to put out a weak art package on the flagship model, especially considering that it had to be approved by the band and they are gunna be sitting on 50 games!

#2889 1 year ago
Quoted from Jason_Jehosaphat:

Tomorrow marks three weeks since the Pro reveal. Stern seems to like Tuesday for significant developments/announcements for IMDN. Is tomorrow going to be the day? Premium/LE, come on down?

Come on Stern let’s see it!

Quoted from John1210:

I learned my lesson on the whole pro prem thing back with metallica. Had a pro played it to death and had a blast. Got a prem and pretty much thought... so what... the pro is just as fun ive wasted my money here.
That said some games do warrant the upgrade. This isnt one of them imo.The subway and sarcofigus toy are going to be super cool but not 2k cool. The pro here will suffice and then some.

Don’t you want to at least see the premium before declaring it officially not worth the extra cash?

For anyone in my area Level Up has IMDN and a few other “Tables”

Stern is toying with my emotions

#3480 1 year ago

IMDN has some much incredible art to choose from and the band had to approve it, I just can’t imagine it being MEH on the LE.

#3491 1 year ago

I still don’t get it, the cab art is listed as “Battlefield art” but it has an airplane on it? And why would they choose an obscure (to me) album cover like a matter of life and death for their flagship game?

#3622 1 year ago
Quoted from kpg:

That was the lamest shit I have ever seen.
Glad they aren't doing this with the LE, I wouldn't have bought one then.
Has a used BM66 SLE sold here on Pinside yet? I am curious to see just how well that $15K price tag holds up..

Last one I saw sell went for around $16,000

#3720 1 year ago

LE looks bad ass! I am in.. now bring on some high res pics please.

#3779 1 year ago
Quoted from jar155:

Here's the front.

Looks fantastic IMHO Backglass and front of cab look awesome, need to see high res pic of the side art!

#4134 1 year ago
Quoted from Diospinball:

I think the pro translite and cab art are better than the LE... Just my opinion... I totally would get a pro, but it's missing actual game features, which is why I am getting a premium.

Have you seen the Pro Translite in person and the High res pics of the LE Translite? I have seen both and the LE blows the pro out of the water (it’s not close)

#4138 1 year ago

Crazy I have never seen so many haters of a game as I have with IMDN.. see the last rating on this link:
Fun fact he rated nearly every game he owns a perfect 10

How bad would a pinball machine truly have to be to deserve to be rated a freaking 1 on a scale of 1 to 10?

Pinball is supposed to be fun!

#4199 1 year ago
Quoted from Manic:

Much better. It loses the Xmas vibe nicely but man... who knew mixing light green, yellow and orange could make you feel so queasy inside? Maybe that was the intent

I have to say the shade of red they used looks damn cool in the high res pics that I got a glimpse of.

#4213 1 year ago
Quoted from yuriijos:

So where are the premium pictures? I think the LE looks ok but not what I was imagining at all.

It seems that the Premium may be taking que’s from the LOTB art so I have a feeling the premium won’t be powerslave themed but instead Legacy of the beast/Kingdom of the sands.

Quoted from frankmac:

The pics you see on this thread are the same as the pics that are emailed.
You are not missing anything..

That’s what I thought until I saw the high res pics, you can’t even see that Eddie is flying the plane in the low res also the colors are “over saturated” on the low res pics.. you will see.

Ps. I was asked not to share the high res pics so if you have an LE coming just ask your distro for them.

#4237 1 year ago
Quoted from MikeS:

I wonder if Iron Maiden will be selling their allotment of
close to 50 LEs direct through their website next week? Really why else would they be so close guarded with the LE pics and have the right to show them first unless they were planning on offering them for sale to their fans?

With something like 14 million fans on there site, I would think 50 machines would go pretty quick!

#4263 1 year ago
Quoted from NightMutilator:

People are forgetting that this is not based on the traditional Iron Maiden art/albums otherwise the "legacy of the beast" branding wouldn't have been included. I too wish it was based on the "scarier/darker" art of traditional eddie... but alas it is not. It also explains why the models look the way they do in the animations. I just wish they woulda spent a little more time on the "somewhere in time" sculpt, as it's pretty obvious that wasn't made for this game alone. It looks like an action figure with articulated arms and legs and not a true sculpt like on Walking Dead. I'm already looking for an alternative toy to replace it with, and that's kinda a bummer considering the price of the upgrade to LE to get true sculpts...

The upside is that we got IMDN classic songs and not a bunch of their new stuff which I don’t care for as much. The LE is going to look incredible! That art on the foil decals is gunna look amazing IMhO

#4282 1 year ago

I really like the shade of red they chose for the armor, also the front of Cab and backglass look fantastic as well! ZY if you are reading this beautiful job as usual, we are lucky to have you cranking out kick ass art at Stern!

#4293 1 year ago
Quoted from Blacksun:

I seriously think my 12 year old could have drawn that plane side art. Hopefully the foil will save it but for me personally it is a let down from what could have been.
I serious don't know how Iron Maiden approved this if they were so involved. /weaksauce

I seriously think that you are wrong, If there is a 12 year old who is a better artist than ZY I would love to see their work!

Quoted from colonel_caverne:

In the same time, I don’t care of what Maiden fans can think about what i’m doing with MY game. And if they care about is they are stupid.

But it does seem like you care what they think

I don’t give a rip what you do with YOUR game, if you want to load it up with Zamfir music go ahead (the guy is a legend on the pan flute) just remember your in a thread full of Maiden fans who are trying to Up the Irons and some times we get snarky when people piss in our punch bowl but we are all pinheads here so we have more in common than we have differences.

is it a pinball thread or iron maiden thread? if it was a maiden music thread i would be there
no need also to make a mockery of my comment, c'est petit...
to think about other people's matters is typically French and I admit that I did not think of it here.
I do not piss on fans of iron maiden fans but those who would make value judgments on the others' matters. am i clear this time?

Ok I stopped reading this at “c’est petit”

To the Pro owners out there can you tell me if IMDN has the juke box option to play music when the game is in attract mode?

Quoted from xian222:

Anyone had a negative experience buying a machine from CoinTaker? I paid the balance in full for a Pro the first week of April. My issue is not that I don't have my Pro yet but that I seem to be getting the run around on when approximately I will get it. Getting a queazy feeling at this point with what I'm being told. Thanks.

Melissa will take care of you! Cointaker = good people!

Quoted from cscmtp:

For anyone that is getting a Prem quote less than $7300 shipped will you PM me with info (if it’s 7100-7200 range like some of hinted on this thread I’d like to know, if it’s within $50 or less no need to)

For me saving $100 is not worth it! Find a good Distro who takes care of you with everything from warranty issues to allocations of hot games and stick with them.

#4604 1 year ago
Quoted from MikeS:

What current Pro model has more? Don't forget that this game has a full size LCD screen. It's similar to Met Pro in features but has 2 extra flippers, 2 spinners, extra jump ramp and triple target, RGB led inserts, better sound quality and light fading due to Spike. Sure Met has a couple of scoops and a bash toy but I think overall Maiden Pro offers more. Both games have metal ramps and a captive ball which is nice. Plus it's got nearly finished code out of the gate which is awesome!
I'm sure the LE/Premium extra features will be cool but I expect that Stern will get far more Pro orders than Premium following the reveal and gameplay.

One other feature that IMDN has that some “loaded” games don’t is that it’s fun as hell to play! More playfield accoutrements doesn’t always equal more fun (see TNA)

And you never explained what is in your armpit if its not hair. Don't leave me hanging!

I believe he said it’s a combination of hair, deodorant and a rash. Diospinball with your permission I would like to take that picture and open a new thread with a poll to vote on what’s going on under your arm.

#4824 1 year ago
Quoted from Vino:

Could be wrong (hard to see on phone) but other than GI and bling, the mechs themselves in so far do not seem to indicate a large drop off in game play in relation to pro.

Some of the differences in Hobys post...

Quoted from hoby1:

Ok.... so what I can see extra from pro to LE and prem. playfield is..
Metal apron
color changing GI
Newton ball
lift ramp with underworld
lifting sarcophagus
ramp diverter
Two Eddie figures.
color changing beacon
Anything else Im missing here ?

Thanks and awesome stream as usual!

Ps. I would love to hear how the LE art looks in person

#4947 1 year ago
Quoted from NightMutilator:

I totally felt Ghostbusters LE and The Walking Dead LE were amazing and I owned both (still own GBLE). The sculpts in Walking Dead were top notch, and the gameplay features in Ghostbusters were outstanding, along with the art packages. The Walking Dead LE was additionally amazing due to the cabinet art not having a bunch of actors sprawled all over it...

Really I thought the cab art on TWDLE was MEH, the Backglass was cool but having owned the LE I would be completely happy with the Premium on TWD.

#5000 1 year ago

5000 posts and we still have not seen the Premium and only renderings of the LE.. cmon Stern don’t cliff hang us

Quoted from dts:

So this guy bashes on Stern and IMDN, giving it a 1/10 as a joke, and now gets an NIB for $5k from a nondisclosed source... I think the BS meter just blew up.

Quoted from Skyemont:

First of all it was a joke again. Second I like what I see in IM. I do own a Spiderman Black which last time I checked was a Stern. So calm down.

So you rated IMDN a 1 out of 10 and when called on it you do two things, Immediately claim it was a joke and then switch your rating page to private. The really amazing part of the story is that even though the game is crap (1 out of 10 according to you) and you have relentlessly bashed it and Stern on the JJP threads you now magically have a connection to buy IMDN a 10%+ discount under everyone else
I assume you will make your ratings page public again now that we have all had a belly laugh at the hilarious joke you made rating IMDN a 1, as you have no doubt corrected that now.

Quoted from wontwa:

People flipping out over the shooter rod - you realize these are made on an assembly line, the video is mid-assembly, and for all we know the last step on the line is swapping it out? They aren't going to list this as a feature on the matrix, show it in promo photos, then not deliver.

Not sure who is “flipping out”? I just asked a question.

#5219 1 year ago
Quoted from wontwa:

Just seen it come a couple times in the thread, which was surprising. Going to Stern with it seemed a bit much. But whatever, I get the excitement regarding the whole thing.

Just asking a question.. I just spent $8800 on a toy and don’t want any surprises when I open the box. Just like Stern expects my check to cash, I expect what’s on the feature matrix to be on the game.

I didn’t even notice it until someone pointed it out. Ya the decal should fill the space better but it’s not anything to get worked up over.

Does the LE have the upgraded cabinet brackets? (Williams style) I thought I had read that Star Wars LE came with the better brackets in the front if the cab?
