Well now it's official Alien is being remade and deposits are in. What are you thoughts and what will you miss from the original? I'm super excited about this as it's my grail pin. Just wish they would hurry and let us know what will be included in the LV edition.

#2 1 year ago

I am here ready to see what the LE will have. It's only 2k more so cant be earth shattering.

1) Bigger BB screen?
2) Powder coating ?
3) Shaker?
4) Signed by ?????
5) Numbered Plaque?
6) TOPPER- I wish...lol

Maybe a extra toy inside is what they said...wonder what that could be?

It will be a fun ride.

#3 1 year ago

When was the LV supposed to become available for deposits?

#4 1 year ago

I have so much alien stuff from over the years, I have lots of things I could make a topper out of so I have some ideas, but honestly, I think it should be a moving alien head or queen head moving back and forth and opening mouth, with flashers on it, and smoke along with the beacons (which I hope are still available).

#5 1 year ago
Quoted from Freakyguy666:

They didn't say, only that they think LE's will be in 6 months or so depending on how fast production goes.

#6 1 year ago

Yeah Pinball Brothers are getting us confused they call it the LV (Limited Version) but we all know it as LE (Limited Edition) It is strange how they call the Standard SE (Standard Edition) and then change for the LE sorry I mean LV

Anyway who wants to see a poll, what ideas you got?

#7 1 year ago

I’ll be back in about a year to this thread... 1st they have to build my Pinball, then I’ll pay, then they’ll send it to Nitro (West of Canada), then they will it ship to my place in Ontario... so I hope I’ll see you again fellas

The whole LV thing is...a play on the theme. LV as in LV-246.

Didn't think of that good catch

#10 1 year ago

So when will you all get your standard edition Alien? I heard delivered in January, is that true?

#11 1 year ago

I was told I have the 7 spot... I will keep you posted

Make 2 or 3.....I will help and be your first buyer. We can get some switches, servos , leds are the easy part.

Love it.

#15 1 year ago

Nice. I hope you enjoy yours. I picked up an original over the summer and it is a delightful game. If the brothers can pull this off it's going to be a game changer for the hobby.

That could be fun. I did a LE JP thread for the 500 to all join . It was good for sone time. I think we got two half who checked in with numbers. Then added prem as well . Still going strong

#18 1 year ago

Good evening. Owner clubs require a game to have shipped. We hope to see one of these shipping soon, at which time an owners club may be formed.

This is a hype thread, since it is created prior to shipping the first game. Thanks.

If you’re in Ontario, Quebec or further East we’ll ship direct from PA. Western provinces will be shipped direct from Vancouver.

west of Canada?

Nitro Pinball it’s in Abbotsford, BC.... so where is B.C. then?

#24 1 year ago

Nice!!!! 2021 will bring two 70’s movies / Pins that use a famous Bitch quote...

“Get away from her you BITCH!” - Alien
“Smile you son of a BITCH!” - Jaws

I'm in on the standard, if it turns out alright I'll move it and then get the LE. good luck to all of us, will be quite the ride.

#28 1 year ago

What's the price on the standard ?

#29 1 year ago

I missed the podcast. Did they put any pics up and as mentioned above, price?

#32 1 year ago
Quoted from tp:

$7777 +$418 shipping

I was just stating what I thought would be a cool topper. I am not sure I have anything or the skills to make something like that.

If I make my own, it will most likely be stationary and maybe some flashers integrated with the lights.

Who knows though, when I get digging into it, maybe I can come up with something, or at least a prototype someone else could build.

I'm doing the same haha

Quoted from Ty-Arnold:

So when will you all get your standard edition Alien? I heard delivered in January, is that true?

I think January deliveries in the US for the first pre-order batch is a pipe dream. I've waited years for this and can easily wait some more.

#38 1 year ago

We shall see if and when they ship I'll be waiting impatiently

#39 1 year ago

If they ship the first week of January it’s possible they arrive in the US mid to late in the month. Still possible for end of month delivery.

#40 1 year ago

I'm buying the LE/LV version. I'm good with waiting till August. I will have GNR LE to pass the time.

#41 1 year ago

I got my deposit in within 5 minutes of Cointaker going live. Melissa told me I was #7. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for January but I can wait....

I understand the want for the LE but it's hard to make an informed decision without knowing what is included in it. If it's just powdercoat, a numbered plaque and HD glass I may stay with the SE, buuut if they include the larger 27" monitor on the backbox that would be a different story

#43 1 year ago

Llabnip1972 are you not on the LE/LV train, or are you staying with the standard version?

It's only 2k more...what the heck, who cares , Bite the bullet. It's your dream Pin. We all know it's going to be great. The $7777 was brilliant.

Give me a Signature from SW and that's enough...Over and out.

My plan is to park the remake right next my original. Once I'm sure that I'm satisfied with the remake I will probably move the original out. My experience playing the original has me stoked for the new shot features in the remake. The magnet to feed the upper right flipper is going to be a game changer. I'm also glad for the physical ball lock on the hyper sleep ramp. That ramp feels so awesome to hit that to have it just dribble through is a little lame. I'm just a sucker for physical locks. It's one of the reasons I got rid of my standard Wonka. They also added the back entrance to the airlock scoop(mode hole). They mentioned that the scoop could yell which entrance was used so I assume it will be coded at some point to a new rule. I know it will suck to lose the pf screen but I would trade that for the new shot features anyday. I'm not completely sure if or how much my original is going to drip in the market but who cares. I'm here to play with the best toys , not make money

Nice collection my friend, but can you wait a year for the Alien LV?

Maybe get the SE play the crap out of it then sell it to fund the LV, just a thought I'm considering as I've waited so long for this to be remade
