Quoted from insight75:

I feel like a lot of folks here prefer the sub inside the cab but I really really prefer an external sub. I feel like the sub in the cab makes stuff inside rattle too much.

I’m going with an RSL speedwoofer. Check it out ….top notch.

Got to play a pro this past weekend at Helicon in Oakdale, PA. Awesome machine, will definitely put in on my short list of future machines to try and buy in future.

Embarrassingly, I currently have a JLAudio F113 in my pinball external sub lineup. I was going to sell it, but it will probably eventually get added as a 2nd sub in my den.

#1405 3 months ago

Nothing embarrassing about that, I currently use an 18" sub, have also been using an SVS PB-16 Ultra to much amusement. Can't play a game without a sub now!

That is awesome - an SVS SB-16 Ultra is what replaced my F113 while it was being reconditioned. But the SVS remained after I got the JL back. They are both incredible!

Anyway - sorry for the slight derail. Looking forward to getting my GZLE, but I don’t think my distrib has received his allocation yet so it won’t be this week for sure.

We are happy to announce and release our Godzilla (Pro version) Train Bridge mod. We went with this design because we feel that it matches better with the in game video and era of Godzilla films.This mod is resin based printed in multiple pieces to attain high details. The model is hand painted and weathered for the utmost realistic look. The bride will also come with a red led to under light it and will tie into the red G.I.

We intend to also make this version for PREMIUM/LE owners in the future !!!

We are happy to announce our "Tesla Strike" Mod....this Mod is currently under development and in testing. The plan is to light the tops of all 3 towers and have them flash off the Tesla spinner. This is not the final version but we are getting close so stay turned.

This mod will fit all three versions of the game

Thanks again!

Cant wait for that call.....

Awesome can't wait for my 1st run premium. This is the 1st stern I have ever ordered on release day and couldn't be more excited. I haven't even played it and already know it will be my most favorite game I have ever owned and I have owned some amazing games. Just hoping I get it before Christmas. As this will make everything seem special this holiday season.

Hungry for some Godzilla Pinball gameplay?

Put up a decent game, showed off the different modes and multiballs, and enjoyed the unique flow of this instant-classic by Stern Pinball

Liken the bridge mod!

Played a pro today at Level 1 in Gilbert Arizona. I have to say I was proven wrong. I loved it. It was a blast to play. The playfield didn’t look as bare in person. I was going to pass on Godzilla for a while and maybe get one down the road used.

Right now I can’t justify a premium at $2200 more. But I am getting a chance to play an LE, so will see if the premiums offerings are worth the upcharge.

My daughter got over 100 million three times on her first try playing it today. Beat me 8/10 times also. She loved it also. Liked the magnet way better than my initial first impressions.

Like someone mentioned in the owners thread, the playfield was definitely a touch too dark. Not horrible, but definitely less bright than AIQ, but kinda on par with JP.

Right ramp was a little tough to hit with the third flipper when compared to AIQ. Thought I would hate the single pop on the front right and that definitely added some challenge and fun to the game.

I was against the QR code reader and stern insider for new pins from day 1. But now I have to say it was pretty damn cool. Going to open an account for my daughter also.

The artwork looked much better in person. I prefer the pro art woo it of the bunch. BOC Godzilla song was awesome during Godzilla multiball. If the price was still $5999 it would be a steal, but even at $6600 still a great price.

I love my AIQ pro still, and I think I may move my new Guardians pro with cleland sound mod to get Godzilla. I still am getting JP premium and have Halloween CE coming early next year.

How did you like the lighted flipper bats?

Or maybe that is just trough lighting?

#1419 3 months ago

just had a great idea for flipper bat toppers: godzilla tails...shame i don't have a 3d printer

Le on the way !

Awesome brother! Enjoy and let me know how you like it

#1422 3 months ago

Let's see those LE's saw one on Facebook that got delivered today. I'm sure it even looks better in person. I can't wait to get my LE.

#1423 3 months ago

LE will be delivered tomorrow!

Shouldn't this bad boy get consolidated with the main thread?

Quoted from attyrhodes:

Shouldn't this bad boy get consolidated with the main thread?

is there a thread with more replies than this one?

#1426 3 months ago

Excited to try out the premium/LE for the extra mechanisms. If the extra mechs impress and seem easy to maintain, I may be trading out my TZ for a Zilla Premium.

Can't wait to see where they take the code from here, its already really solid, but I'm hoping for more depth and nuance with the cities.

#1427 3 months ago

Got out to play this on location earlier this week and it far exceeded my expectations. It was a Pro, and it still has a ton to shoot for and is incredibly engaging; having not played the Premium at all, I'd be perfectly satisfied with a Pro at home. Callouts and directions are already in a really good spot, objectives are clear(ish) and there was a good mix of challenges in the modes. My small gripe would be that it's a bit on the dark side, lighting-wise. Ready to go back and drop some more coins soon!

I found it a couple weeks ago myself...

Just got word my LE is on it's way, hoping to having in the house next week. Don't have my number yet though.

#1430 3 months ago

Picked up LE today! Thanks to Melissa at Cointaker .

#1431 3 months ago

That one has less responses (only 19 pages to this one's 29)...you'd think it would fold into this one, not the other way around

#1432 3 months ago

I post here till I'm an owner...just got news, truck left Stern today heading to Houston!!! Woop Woop!!

#1433 3 months ago

If you’re getting your machine. Let the people who are still waiting. What number you are? It would be nice.

#1434 3 months ago

If you live in the Denver area, the 1Up in Greenwood Village just put an LE out on the floor. Having played both the Pro and LE now, I can say they're both fun and shoot well, but the LE/Premium absolutely kills it.

Power watching the new netflix Godzilla series . 2 down and loving it ...
Anyone else catch this series yet ?
I like the new spin .

#1436 3 months ago
Quoted from pickleric:

If pros are not ready to ship add 2-4 weeks to LE and Prem guesstimates.
Realistically probably Late Oct for LEs.
Late Nov. Early Dec for Premiums
Hoping sooner, let's see how this post ages.

Stern informed my distributer this week that premiums won't be until late November.

#1437 3 months ago

Searching toys for my premium i found, "The Final battle" LOL!

Looks great! How about a pic from a bit further back? Please and thank you.

Im really struggling between Pro/Premium on this one! Im honestly leaning towards saving $2200 and upgrading the two figures.

Thanks again.

#1449 3 months ago

I went pro because I was putting the game on location, I didn’t want to wait till December to get it, I didn’t want to wait for the building to collapse to play multiball every single time and…I wanted to fill it with my own toys (that look better) haha

Your GoZLE looks amazing !
Can I ask how you have a IMDN LE with a Premium speaker panel ?
The 2 KME specials do look amazing side by side.
