Quoted from Mando:

In regards to the diverter, the issue is it really can only be different when lock is lit. Reason being the through the building shot changes to a up kicker to the top of the building, unless that has a way to spit the ball back out?
It a shame and I hope I am wrong because I dont really see the point of diverting the balls only in that moment.

Always been my biggest gripe about the Pro/premium tiers - all the rules must be dumbed down to the pro level to keep the game consistent. Means any different mechs in the premium are always underutilized just because of this arbitrary restriction.

Quoted from bocce:

looks like it does. Check the clip. It feeds onto the ramp.

Interesting I see how it does it by moving the building ...slows game play a bit but I'm good with it !

My Tom Whalen Mondo print arrived. Absolutely stunning print to see in person
Been watching some of the Toho films as well.

I'm super excited for this game and have to give a special shout out to Scott Larson @loserkid for hooking me up with an LE!

The details on the PF art are fantastic. ZY is great.

Looks like this will be my first NIB purchase. Premium, supposedly shipping early 2022. Price is hard to swallow on one level, but I am selling a few classics to cover it so more like just trading up. Most of my games were purchased as projects at very reasonable prices too, so that helps. I get why people are complaining about the increase, but used games go for good money too, so it's all relative. 3 older classics for 1 amazing looking NIB seems just fine with me.

Well said. We are in a period where prices are increasing rapidly for both new and used. It's not so much a matter of how much it cost today but what you can sell it for tomorrow and how much enjoyment you receive while you own it . I see this market going way up as a new generation discovers pinball.

I’ve got my order in for a Premium. Expected arrival Feb/March 2022.

At least I’ll have plenty of time to work on my home brew topper…I’ve purchased a Showa Era 12inch Godzilla and thinking a bridge scene similar to the one at the end of the trailer.

Does Godzilla have a co-op mode ?

#864 4 months ago
Quoted from addams40:

It wasn’t mentioned on the stream. It seems like Dwight is the only one putting in co-op. I’m not sure why it’s not a standard. My son and I love it on Tmnt and Mando

That doesn't make sense of Godzilla as you're playing as Godzilla (see Stern stream...).
But I guess he could be multiple personality disorderzilla!!!!!!

#869 4 months ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

No, just Tmnt and Mando for stern unless something has changed or I missed the announcement. As a family, we play coop a lot. Alice cooper was the first pin we owned with it and it’s a game we really enjoyed to play together. My daughter wants it back. I know American pinball just added it to their three titles. It can’t be that difficult to have as a standard on all stern pins.

Is just sharing progression and points. Mando you are the Mandalorian. You can’t choose a character like Tmnt. It would of been cool to choose between characters but it’s still fun to play coop regardless

Your logic doesn’t make sense for Mando. There’s only one Mando, and you can play coop.

Also it doesn’t really need to make sense. You’re already pretending to be a mythological creature, destroying things inside a pinball machine… sooo…..

I've been looking at the artwork and for me it's a 10/10 home run art package. I am not married to any particular Godzilla art style or color scheme so I am just looking at it as to the actual drawings/composition/art/color... and to me it's one of the best looking games IMO.

Like you, I think it looks great. I’m an artist and can say Mr. Yeti really did a nice job orchestrating all of this harmoniously throughout the playfield.

Wow! I checked it out and it's killer!
I'm a huge lino block print fan.
He is amazing
Thx for the heads up. Spending more money now

I agree - really looking forward to this game

You’re also playing as Godzilla yet he is on the play field as a plastic/figure. How does that work? It’s a game, they can put in Coop if they want.

I think the art is great too .... Not a huge fan of how he depicted Zilla but he really does a great job of the art being relevant to the playfield layout .

As a JJP lover I can see this as a direct shot back at JJP call you and raise you 10k, Nice to see Stern loading games up, pushed me over the edge to by a LE. First Elvira, now this. JJP left a gap with the crappy playfields and CS so Stern is taking guys like me away from JJP.

Agreed. Not sure how anyone could buy a JJP with their lack of quality control on playfields. JJP has to do something to earn back the trust of buyers if they ever want to compete with the big dogs again…

Hey I just spotted the Twins in the LT outlane!

Haha nice catch! I was wondering if they would be in the game.

When will the very first LE and Pros get shipped?

I don’t care atm bc I have problems coughing out the last few k for my le...

Should be a few pros landing later this week.

Apparently they do boob jobs in Japan too!

It’s gone up for sure but that’s not a stock MET. It’s like trying to sell a stock Tron for 9k… because.

#888 4 months ago

That's good to know. I own a Metallica pro and had no idea the price of them had gone up. I'm not selling it anyway, it's probably my favorite for now.

Yes, except you aren't operating in the land of REALITY if you're looking for a stock Tron, because no such thing exists, or is for sale. There *might* still be some MET out there that are...but I don't, and haven't, seen one for sale in a very long time. So....I'm trying to operate based on the REALITY of what I see for sale.

Well Crap.

Just called Game Exchange to ask roughly when I could expect delivery for my Premium..... He said, "Probably March".

Wow. Was not expecting that. Guess I can practice patience.

When did you get your order in?

#893 4 months ago

Last Wednesday.

He said the LE's sold out in 90 sec and the Premiums were within 2 weeks for the first run.

Yea... I didn't even have a shot at an LE (ordered through Game Exchange as well). I did however secure a Premium within about 30 minutes of the reveal. I was admittedly not that interesting in the theme of Godzilla, but I don't think I've seen a better layout in pinball (for my money) + the artwork from ZombieYeti -- I couldn't resist. I'm hoping to have mine in November, but haven't called yet to find out for sure.

That was EXACTLY how I felt. I heard it was Godzilla and I just was not excited. Then I watched the gameplay and was pretty impressed, and decided that I had to try it. Turns out the delay cost me! LOL.

You never know... maybe people will drop out.

Hype hype hyped!!! Gaddamn it looks so fun.

#897 4 months ago

Definitely hyped for my premium. Been a massive Godzilla fan since I was a little guy, that couple with being an Elwin table and how good it all looks... this wait is gonna kill me!

#898 4 months ago

The HYPE is real!!

#899 4 months ago

Looks great to me, likely an easier shooter than JP. I think the tail whip is one of the harder shots.

#900 4 months ago

Anyone know a distributor with a 1st run premium. I ordered day 1 at 1pm and still 2nd run. Damn this game is legit
