Quoted from megaladon:

Yeah same here but nowadays 10 K for a game is the norm and since I owned it before it’s a great game! Maybe I can ask Melissa back 1499 lol So I can make interest on that money for another year LOL

I think we will be all good when we hear the news.....just want my 3k topper...lol.

#2102 10 months ago
Quoted from EightBallTexas:

Yeah I did the same thing as you....LV 20-ish or so...gonna be a 12 month wait for final product from our deposits date....damn who woulda thought...
Not bailing until the announcement and hope it's more than just cosmetics....

To justify the cost, powder coating, glass, and beacon toppers alonr aren't going to cut it. It also needs the aftermarket upgraded apron that some have been buying and something else. A number and signed whatever isn't going to hack it.

#2103 10 months ago

Looks like I get my Alien delivered Monday! Finally!

We are working on the Apron , waiting on the prototype to arrive to test and then move forward.

Ordered 12/18/21 from cointaker. Paid invoice 5/25. Just got shipping confirmation. Game is being delivered Monday, Aug. 30.

As someone who got taken for a ride by Andrew Heighway (ordered 10/2014), I’m ecstatic that I will be finally receiving an Alien pinball!

Just as i was reading these replies i got my notice for Friday! The Aliens have invaded!! <alien head emoji>

#2112 10 months ago

Mine is coming Monday too! Can't wait.

#2113 10 months ago

I love seeing everyone receiving their machines. I can't wait for mine! Q2 shipments can't come quick enough!

#2114 10 months ago

I guess this is old news on prices.

If you put down a dollar will they honor the price for the LV?

#2116 10 months ago

Considering stern will try and get 10k+ for their LEs (which is an absolute joke), I'm fine with this price. I always thought the 7777 for SV was the steal/buy of the year and happy with mine but it will be on the market as soon as I get the LV. For me, LV has to have the interior lit blades. Comparing the OG to PB, the new one hands down beats the old with all of it's additions EXCEPT the missing interior lit blades. Those need to happen. Screen I can live with or without which is prob the biggest surprise since owning the new PB version is how much I don't miss it. Beacons need to happen too although they will work with the SV (PB confirmed to me yesterday) and assume same with LV so no worries there.

Bring on the LV. New code btw, really fixes the magnet grab by xeno. OG had the same issue as well but this new FW grabs it better than I've seen on either version. No issues to report and I'm loving it. Alien pinball continues to be my fav pinball game out there.

On a side note, don't sleep on Dialed In. Game is legit.

#2117 10 months ago
Quoted from HurryUpPinball:

I have owned my Alien for close to two months and while I really enjoy the game, there are a bunch of games on the horizon so after spending some time with Alien, I have decided to list it for sale. I got mine in June and it plays 100%. I added wide body voodoo glass, Titans, swapped out the gen 2 skinny stand ups for Williams 3d targets, and completed many of the fixes outlined in this thread. It currently has 126 plays. Current code is 2.2. I am looking for a cash only / local deal. I am not looking to ship the pin at this time. If anyone is interested, let me know.

I’m an early order Q2 (Dec 2020) and have been informed mine is among the 44 being built right now that will ship soon.
That works out fine for me as that gives me 4-8 weeks to prepare. Hoping this batch gets the latest tweaks to make the game more reliable.

How did you find out this info about yours being built?

#2120 10 months ago

Just a reminder for folks, the 1$ for LV's is not a down payment of any sort. I'm guessing they won't start taking down payments until after the announcement. The 1$ was an easier way for Melissa to automate the LV interest list which had previously involved the manual process of emailing her. They added the 1$ option so that Melissa wouldn't have to manage the interest list via her email any more.

#2121 10 months ago
Quoted from RussG:

Melissa at Cointaker emailed me within hours of inquiring. This was my first time bugging her
But, I needed to get a rough time frame to make space and prepare.

Have you been invoiced for the full dealio yet?

#2124 10 months ago

Installed new code. Tongue grab is working better but still have issues with the APC not registering. Have to frequently power cycle. It works for a game or two then stops.

Just finished watching Aliens myself. Both are such great movies

#2129 10 months ago

Just put down a deposit for standard Q3 order. Oh boy….hope I made the right call. Super excited about this one. Been wanting to pull the trigger on it for a while.

#2130 10 months ago

Sounds like Monday is going to be a great day for quite a few people, got delivery set up for mine as well

Quoted from RussG:

If you’re asking me, no not yet either.
I sincerely hope I will be asked for the balance on the original price of $7777 and not the new price hike.

I am asking for anyone with a Q2 or Q3 deposit if they have been invoiced? And i am hoping i get in on the 7777 price tag as well.

Nice to get some immediate affirmation after putting a deposit down. Nice video.

#2137 10 months ago

Anyone here had this issue near their slingshots?

Appears to be pooling and i'm concerned...

Pooling? (resized).png
#2138 10 months ago

Yelobird knows how to fix that!

#2139 10 months ago

Ugh. Are these made by Buthamburg? I'd contact them if so.

#2140 10 months ago

Is it really pooling? Kind of looking like reflections from that starpost to me.

I really don't understand why this happens.

I SprayMax 2K my Pinbot playfield and its held up better than all these new Playfields coming out. 2 years and I still have a perfect playfield and I only let it cure more than 2 weeks after spraying. SMH.

#2142 10 months ago

Nope , no truck yet ... maybe if i look out the window every 10 minutes it will arrive faster?

#2143 10 months ago

I have this same thing on my Iron Maiden pro. Minor pooling. First time I've seen this with a Burthamburg playfield. However, it appears to be minor pooling. My iron Maiden never chipped since 2018 probably because the ball never touches the pooled clear coat. But yes, it's fixable. See this thread.

https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/diy-playfield-post-repair-and-chip-proofing-how-to-all-brands

** Keep in mind though, that that electric iron used has no heat control on it and can get too hot! I've seen others just use a small metal measuring cup that they heat up to better control the temp so as not to get too hot. See post 192 in above link.

#2144 10 months ago
Quoted from kciaccio:

I really don't understand why this happens.

I'm pretty sure (at least with Stern) pooling is caused from cranking out pins too fast and not allowing enough time for the clear coat to cure before bolting down posts. Different temps and humidity and CC mixtures allow for varying cure times. Thus the playfield lottery.

Oh shit! That looks just like my Wonka CE that I returned! Yikes! Good luck with figuring it out to both customer and company.

Luckily , i dont have to take the day off to do this. Fearing a delay until monday at this point. That has only happened once in the NIB experience.

I have a tech coming to fix any potential issues and help me move some pins around.
