What is STERN doing about it?

#353 3 years ago
Quoted from Pinhead1982:

What is STERN doing about it?

Is that a newly unboxed premium?

#354 3 years ago

I believe the Premium playfield dates that went over seas started in June. That said, I'm not sure if these Premiums that are being received and unboxed overseas right now will be an accurate indicator of any changes that were made regarding the playfields. The domestic (US) Premiums would be a better indicator in my opinion.

#355 3 years ago

I'm one of the lucky ones with a game without issues.
I modded it good yesterday. Flipper bats, some signs, pink led strip on backboard (a must), PEK mirror, Purple led strip in drain, green light buttons.
I regret buying the topper. It's the cheapest thing I saw in a long time.

Now waiting for tilt graphics mirror blades with design in it. They look amazing!

Premiums being unboxed now are definitely older playfields subject to whatever issues they come with. All the guys who have been waiting in the US are probably in a better position as they will be getting updated playfields.
That being said, I'm doing whatever I can to stop the airballs. I know this is not pretty but it works. I butchered up one of my Arwen ramps, lol.

Blue frosted spot lights just behind ghost plastics. Hard to picture how deep it gives the art work. Try it

I spoke to my distributor yesterday. My GB prem & another GB Prem are being shipped today or tomorrow (together as a group ship) and are scheduled to arrive maybe tues or wed of next week. I asked "if" anything was new or any changes to be expected on these premium's playfields... crickets.

Totally agree, Stern should be ashamed of that topper. Congrats on getting game!

Thanks for the info.
My Premium is shipping to me tomorrow. Looking forward to an unboxing early to mid next week.

Well I got my GBLE #5 in today -- No problems so far and now got to get the mods on and topper and I will post pics when it is all done -- Got the GB Mirror Blades and Topper and some of the Mods -- Any thing new out there on the Mods or up and coming?

ANY RECOMMENDATION ON THE MODS, I got a few on order and in route

Played it only a couple times -- Love the game -- But want to wait till I get it really all mod up and then play it

That's the Stern G spot, right there.

Should my Slimer be hitting the centre captive ball guide on the way past? It's dragging on the top and registering a hit. Usually I can fix these things but I can't find a way to raise him up a couple of mm.

Theres a set screw about 1/4 inch from the top.
After loosening, you can raise the arm, and tighten.

Shooter washers can be stacked.

You can also rempve the 3 washers and lower the plate.

Make sure there is no hanging wire on slimers but.

Last effort is shimming the mech with washers below the playfield...pretty easy.

All depends on the mech mounting and wire length you get.

#373 3 years ago

Thanks guys! Tried that set screw and it wouldn't budge. Have to hit the gym!

#374 3 years ago

It will move....just tight, maybe even some loctite on it.

All I did was bend the arm with my hands ever so slightly to raise Slimer up. Took a whole 2 mins to do it. No need to mess with the screws or use some sort of tie wrap. People seem to make things harder when all is needed is a little arm muscle.

had the same problem (or actually still have), I got send out a new slimer, just did not receive it yet, temporary solved it with a ty-rap between the mechanism on the top (underneath the plate with the 2 nuts)

I have the topper. I like it. No regrets.

can you confirm when the lights go off during gameplay? Multiball?

Need my Premium first.

They go off during "We Got One", and the attract mode. I'm sure that are other modes, more experienced players can probably chime in here.

I also have a topper. I've had it for 3 months. Now I just need a Ghostbusters Premium!

ok when you say you dont regret it, I thought you've actually played games with it. So far I am only aware of those two modes too which kind of sucks if it's only those times.

I physically own the topper. I have inspected it.

I have seen multiple videos with the topper in place and running.

With those two things, I am confident I have no regrets buying it.

#383 3 years ago

An Aussie distro unboxed a premium for a customer and the playfield was signed by JT

So either it's an old LE playfield or just a mistake. Go figure

#384 3 years ago

Number 429 is in the back of my truck on its way home right now!! Going to inbox it tonight with my son he's always played pinball here and there but Ghostbusters LE is the only pin he's ever really expressed interest in watching me to buy

It's our first NIB

#385 3 years ago

So I got it open and set up haven't placed any balls in it until it's all protected but after the third or fourth time turning it on I get this in the display
Thoughts?

Sucks Brother. You need a new node board. Quite common.
You won't be playing for a couple days, I'm afraid. Contact your supplier -or maybe Stern, asap.

#387 3 years ago

Well I wasn't going to play it until I get all the protectors but that still sucks

#388 3 years ago

Bad node boards. Seems common.

#389 3 years ago

I emailed stern and I'll call automated in the am

#391 3 years ago

Should be....Reach out to Patrick Powers by name.

#394 3 years ago

Chas will send you out a new one.

Maybe a stupid question but are ALL Sterns LE games signed by the designer?

#396 3 years ago

LE's are all signed, and apparently, some Premiums are showing up signed as well.

... that's where the rest of the crappy LE playfields went

#398 3 years ago

I spoke with Chas and pat today and both were very helpful. I should have my new board by the weekend.

New? A replacement is not necessarily a new board.

Well it's new to him isn't it.
