May as well get this club started! Who is in, and beyond excited for AIQ?!

*moderator edit: owners clubs are not authorized prior to the first game shipping, this is the hype thread.

In and psyched for it! They can lock us but they can't hold us forever (maybe)!!!

I agree. Either the game designer starts the club thread and locks it until release, or we have a raffle for who ever wants to start it, lol. Nerds.

I dont think theres a bad choice at all on this game. Any model is bound to be a blast. Cant wait to see the animations. Personally I hope they stick with the comic style. No movie clips. Just my personal hopes.

Thanks! I'll have a look at Sterns website. I dont have instagram.

#16 2 years ago

Thank goodness! I would have cried myself to sleep tonight if someone hadn’t made the club yet!

See you all in a few months when it finally shows up!

#17 2 years ago

Ordered my AIQ Premium from Flip N Out today!

#18 2 years ago

I'm in on an LE. Only because the wife liked the yellow. Me personally, I'd probably get the premium and choose a powder color of my own. BUT, happy wife, happy life. Right?

#19 2 years ago

Is this an LE, PREM, or PRO owners club? Please be certain. I need to know the distinction between all the other Avengers threads.

#20 2 years ago

I will most likely get a Premium and keep my collection at 4.

All for one, and one for all! Oops, wrong theme motto.

Below the thread title under "Linked Games" it shows all three models linked to this thread. Not enough variation between the models to need multiple club threads. And even if there were, well, let's just say it's a bit cumbersome to have club threads for different models in the JP2 land so one club should be good.

#22 2 years ago

AIQ Premium ordered!

#23 2 years ago

In on an LE! Thank you Mike and Kayla at Automated.

#24 2 years ago

Premium pre-ordered!

Everything on the play-field is directly mentioning what happens in the comics not MCU, I would highly doubt anything related to MCU.

They call everything gems not stones, and they refer to Thanos' Black Order as Warmasters both directly related to comics.

Looking forward to playing this game that features a lot of angry steel!

You know you don't need an IG account right? You can still see the videos without one. The site will try to fight you after a couple clicks, but you can still see the goods. I don't have an account either but still regularly check a couple accounts. On my phone I can click a post or two and it works fine, but a third click will get you a popup. On the computer, if you right click the video and say open in a new tab, you can see the video.

Waiting for an invoice for my Premium, second ever NIB (first was DP pro and it was my first machine). Had to have the premium after seeing that crazy ramp.

Have to wait till December afore they bump the big island.

#29 2 years ago

I'm leaning towards Premium

hey Eagle, happy to see you here in the AIQ-Thread again and hoping for some good inpult like on JP2, im in too
premium of course, that right ramp has to feel like an orgasm when hitting it mmmmhh

i am happy there is just one dangerous target in the upper PF in the middle, there are only hard rubber posts left, not like on punishing TMNT. also not much going on on the lower PF, this means less left to right action, yay! I wonder if the post of the spinning disc can block the middle ramp shot from the upper flipper

#32 2 years ago

Premium looks fantastic but I ordered a pro very excited to play this game.

#33 2 years ago

Ordered le! No confirmation yet.

#34 2 years ago

Will scoop in the future for sure. But first there’s a few older titles I’ve been waiting a long time to purchase. Hoping this new game pushes others to sell.

#35 2 years ago

I didn’t ask. I am in the process of moving - this is sitting in a box for awhile. No rush on my end. As always they made it easy for me. Something to be said about trusting your distributor. I shopped around once for a game Automated didn’t carry and oh my goodness. Some of the people on here who claim to be saints are far from it!

This is the first game that I’ve bought on layout vs. theme. Looks like I’ll have to watch some of these movies now.

#36 2 years ago

AIQ premium ordered! Also in for a topper!!!

#37 2 years ago

Not my first, but i used to think theme was important. It's less than secondary to me.

Gameplay, callouts and music and art are all more important to me nowadays.

Last two machines for me were Walking Dead (hate the show) and Rob Zombie (hate heavy metal and hadn't heard of rob before i bought the machine).

Don't really know who avengers is, but had to have it after seeing all those ramps.

All the ramps and crazy wire forms are what got me also. I do like the Avengers movies, but I'm not a hard-core fanboy. When Stern announced the next pin would be Avengers, I kind of thought " ok, ill pass. Save my money for now." However, once I realized it was Keith on Design, and I saw the playfield, it was a must have. It just looks insane!!

#39 2 years ago

Im in for a premium. put my money down yesterday morning, second in line for a premium. It will be my first NIB. It will go very well next to my Thanos arcade 1UP cabinet. wish i could justify an LE so it will match the yellow of my LE 1UP cab

Should be fun to explore this game with everyone! Lol, it seems like there might be less obvious danger than JP2, but I'm guessing it's got plenty of trouble spots for me to find... frequently.

Looks like the post on the spinner can definitely block the shot through the pops to the left of the middle ramp. Seems like there's a chance it could also slightly be in way of the left edge of the middle ramp from the left flipper also. Looking forward to finding it all out!

Quoted from Jkaping:

Have they listed any info on how tall the topper is?

#42 2 years ago

I love the comic dialog boxes throughout the playfield taken straight from the comics

Avengers Tower,
Monitoring potential threats...
when suddenly...
Warning!
Warning!
Warning!...

WAKANDA! Home of the Black Panther for more than 10,000 years...

...A monument in DEEP SPACE

Did anyone else notice Death up near the Gauntlet ramp. this is definitely based on the comics. Thanos was obsessed with pleasing Lady Death and thats what brought about his quest to find all the infinity gems and kill half of all life in the universe.

#43 2 years ago

I'm officially in on an LE. Game looks packed and has some pretty cool mechs. Adding this to my "Marvel row" - Spiderman, Ironman, & X-Men!
Yellow T- molding already ordered

#44 2 years ago

In on the LE, I'm just too impatient, if they shipped premiums first I'd take that all day, I just hate the wait for the premiums. An impatient fool and his money are soon parted = Me.
That being said I like the yellow, something a little different, I got plenty of greens and reds and blues and purples. Makes it really bright and stands out.

Agree 100% on the yellow. Suits the game theme and makes it pop!

This game will kill tmnt sales.

I've got some yellow T on hand, just need to measure how much. I can't believe it ships with black. Johnson city?! That will be 2 LE models within a stones throw of each other.

#48 2 years ago

Yeah, I don’t get how Stern does all of these LE’s in bright powders and leaves the t-molding in basic black. Stands out like a sore thumb. T-molding is like $20 or less, c’mon. If I was in on an LE that would be my first mod right out of the box.

LE , I’m fond of the theme.
It will be the first pinball in my video game room. It’s Marvel and Batman themed.

Under consideration, however I have more games than I can play and I like them all.

Toss in new offerings from JJP and CGC, no expo to play and see it, equals down the road decision.
