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 still curious as to what's going to be the upgrades for the LV. When are those features supposed to be announced ?

#205 9 months ago
Quoted from Buthamburg:

Here we show over tightened lane guide cutting through. You can clearly see the ridge that the metal left in the clear coat. On the sides of the ridge you cannot see any pooling. We tested this before, in a long term test, no difference, no pooling. You can see with what force we tightened the guide,
the metal post totally bent under the force and even snapped.

Are the SE & LV playfields identical ? Will playfields be available for purchase separately as a part, if so what will the cost be ?

#208 9 months ago
Quoted from Buthamburg:

Here we show the final sanding process for the finish clear coat. Old school style, gentle touch.
Although we spend a lot of time for the finish clear coat, don’t expect a 100 % perfect mirror finishing like you would get from, example, Kruzmann. It is not possible time wise in production process. But the finishing is still very decent and the playfields hold up well, as in our normal, silkscreened repro playfields.

Looks really good pretty damn mirror like glass finish to me! Just curious what type of bonnet & wax do you guys use or recommend for your playfields ?

#225 9 months ago
Quoted from Red_Devils:

Don't know if I can wait that long

While good things are worth waiting for....and I have no problem in doing so, I’d just love to know what’s the anticipated upgrades for the LV. When the other companies release different models simultaneously they divulge to you what separates them so you can make the best decision that suits your needs, all we got was a $2,200 price increase & left to guess what the upgrades will be.

I’m also baffled as to why if they claimed SE games would ship in January why they don’t have at least a teaser video short clip of the game play.

#233 9 months ago

Thought it was interesting of those that voted on the pole as of now 70% are in on Alien SE / LV.

The SE / LV is dead even at 35% each (43 votes) & that’s without any info on the LV upgrades.

My questions are did Pinball Brothers state the amount of LV’s being made, & how many are being allocated to what countries ?! Is it going to presumably be a global total of 426? You have one US distributor which is CoinTaker, wondering how many LV’s they will be allocated.

Also curious to know how much the pole voting will change once they finally introduce the included upgrades / options for the LV.

#239 9 months ago

I agree and certainly an exciting time for pinball, I would love to finally see what's included in the LV's though.

#249 9 months ago
Quoted from Red_Devils:

Have just confirmed that Pinball Brothers are supposed to be making an announcement tomorrow and they do have some machines ready to go on the boat and they are air freighting a couple to Cointaker, so hopefully there will be news tomorrow

Hopefully part of the news is that they will divulge LV information.

#253 9 months ago
Quoted from BeeGeeMtl:

If this is true, I find it even MORE odd that they haven't released 1 video of gameplay. I mean....seriously?!? You expect folks to put $10k into a machine that went tits up a few years ago....and you don't demonstrate it once? Even after announcing it almost a month ago?

Quoted from Manny65:

Ohhhh I like the physical ball lock - this is going to be sooo cool

Wait doesn’t this contradict what they said... they said they built / shipped games already some shipped via air & now posted “we have a problem, need to work it out before we ship games” ?!

#266 9 months ago

You have the following games likely on the horizon to compete with Pinball Brothers Alien remake, I'd just like to know even if they won't release it until October what's included in the Alien LV.

JJP Toy Story
Stern Godzilla ?
Stern / Kapow Back To The Future ?
Stern JAWS ?
Spooky / Ben Heck / CGC new title / Evil Dead ?
American Pinball next title ?
Deep Root Goonies ?
CGC next remake Cactus Canyon ?
CGC new game ?

#291 9 months ago

You guys sure do LOVE the upcoming Pinball Brothers Alien...

#294 9 months ago
Quoted from EightBallTexas:

Nice I see my name around the 9PM mark.....I am famous chappie101 lol.

Since we don't have any other photos / videos yet... figured I'd make some more art...

I also see a piece of JAWS artwork in the upper right hand of one of those pics, how great would JAWS & ALIEN pins look together ?

Quoted from Llabnip1972:

We're gonna need a bigger boat
[quoted image][quoted image]

Great prop! But to really make it a bit more authentic think you should bend the license plate a bit & add some patina ...that looks way too clean to be taken out of a sharks belly! I for one “want to believe” Alien & Jaws will eventually both make their way into my collection and reside next to each other in prefect razor sharp teeth harmony. Both Alien & Jaws have the greatest use of the quote using BITCH....

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

Was at Pinfest this weekend talked to Melissa from CoinTaker in the flesh regarding Alien LV. She claims the details / announcement will be made prior to the end of the year of officially what will be included. I'm really looking forward to adding this game to my collection. I hope that they include some nice goodies with the LV (It's assumed that beacons are coming *likely confirmed* for sure). I commend you guys as the first testers people to receive the standard edition Alien games for keeping your cool on the brand new revision of this game as they work out some kinks. From the surface it looks like Pinball Brothers are committed to standing by their products / customer support to make sure things are rectified. I'm not expecting the LV's to be perfect, but hopefully they address majority of the known initial issues prior to those shipping, as badly as I want it now, I'd rather wait for them to work things out.

I'm going with 2-4 Months Until Alien LV features reveal. October - December 2021. With LV games shipping Q1 of 2022.

#1844 78 days ago
Quoted from EightBallTexas:

I am going with Nov 20th...lol.

Are you randomly guessing ? Or was the date confirmed from Pinball Brothers ? Or perhaps that's when Alien Xmas came out last year...

It will only work if you have this USB Stick...

10-DAYS Until LV Announcement !!! So pumped for this game!!!

Quoted from pinballinreno:

I paid my dollar for an LV space lol.
I hope i dont get f#ckrd on this.
So far i have lost out on ultaman and Godzilla...
Its still unclear if this game is worth the price increase.
Lotta stuff to work out.
Godzilla looks awesome.

Likewise! I was on the email list well before cointaker implemented that dollar thing on their website with a few emails to prove that, I hope Melissa / Cointaker honor that. I was even asked for a specific requested LV number of my choice at the time. The MSRP price is already released $10.695 for Limited Version (LV) – tba Sept 24, 2021 from Pinball Brothers for the LV, just like you and everyone else just awaiting on the features.

#2649 39 days ago
Quoted from pcprogrammer:

Anyone think they'll add that playfield screen back on the LV?

It would be cool, it wouldn’t surprise me If they add some or most of these features into the LV:

-Lockdown bar as additional screen / viewing area. (Assuming they don’t place the other screen into the playfield)
-Larger backbox LCD monitor
-Black / Shinny Alien Wet look to match the queen powder coated trim
-Upgraded HD / Invisaglass
-Beacon “topper” lights
-Numbered Plaque
-Customs Shooter Rod
-Mirrored upgraded art / Backglass / blades
-Extra game mode

#2788 34 days ago

The LV features reveal in 2 days can't wait!

#2807 33 days ago
Quoted from djsoup:

Same. Black mirror woulda been awesome.

As I stated previously in this thread I can totally see the LV reveal getting some type of drippy Black shinny looking Armor to match that of the queen.

“Some day somebody's gonna make you want to turn around and say goodbye
Until then, baby, are you going to let 'em hold you down and make you cry?
Don't you know? Don't you know, things can change
Things'll go your way
If you Hold On for one more day
Can you Hold On for one more day?
Things'll go your way
Hold On for one more day”... for the Alien LV reveal tomorrow!

#2842 33 days ago
Quoted from Munsters:

It’s 22:00 now, so over 2 hours it’s friday, so maybe we get lucky and they reveal it

Maybe, but I'll say likely in 12-18hrs it will be revealed tomorrow afternoon / early evening unless it automatically updates on the website at midnight.

#2845 33 days ago
Quoted from Munsters:

Well, i’m waiting…[quoted image]

I'm not chill... too excited... running around ....

#2851 32 days ago
Quoted from delt31:

I’m pumped to see the LV!
Didn’t realize that powder came from PB. Talk about a sweet surprise.
For me I hope they have the lit side blades and beacons working. That would be great. Larger back box sure or pf screen but both would be fine without. Of course I’m on the LV list and high up at that. Can’t wait to see the new features

Ditto !! Although I hope they don't release the Alien XV, They also left a blank spot next to it... SV, LV, XV & __? I know they've stated the LV is the highest tier... I hope so as whatever it is I'm in for the creme de la creme Alien.

#2859 32 days ago
Quoted from RussG:

Is everyone even those that put in a $1 intent bound by the increased price ?
That sucks if so.

I don't think CoinTaker is honoring that original pricing for the LV prior to it being announced, I was on an "E-mail list" before the $1.00 list was implemented, Would love to see Melissa / CoinTaker chime in on this. I just want to secure one either way.

#2861 32 days ago
Quoted from Utesichiban:

So how many LV's did Pinball Bros say would be made? I got on the $1.00 list several months back but can't remember how many would be made now.
What time is their reveal tomorrow? Hoping they put an upgraded apron on this thing and a really cool topper in addition to the standard LE/LV enhanced features.

I don't think they mentioned any time frame, I think they will just update their site / social media and pinside / this thread you will know... although it seems like the waits is 39 light years away from Earth....

The Limited Versions It's 500 from what I read but should be 426... for you know LV-426 would make the most sense.

#3033 31 days ago

I'm ALIE-IN!! On the LV! placed my pre-order with CoinTaker...

I absolutely LOVE the new artwork on the LV done by pinsider Aurich , it's beautiful and can't wait to see better high res pics.

In photoshop real quick a tried making the armor darker / black makes a huge difference and makes the art POP / look that much better. The armor should be black especially because it has a "custom cut xeno" head where the flipper buttons are. I also brightened the "backbox" art area & Inner Side Blades to make them look "Lit". I also swapped out the beacon render for the original beacon lights. I really hope they don't make an Alien [XV] and that the Alien LV is the top tier.. It is what it is, but I'm ALIE-IN on the LV!!

Once they start going, I’m wondering how long it will take them to satisfy the orders for the LV. They bumped it up to 1000, what’s Pinball Brothers production capacity ? Spooky can make a comparable roughly 1250 machines in 18 months with about 70 games per month. Are they first starting the “LV” builds / shipment in Q1 2022 or will any of them ship in Q4 2021 ?

#3466 7 days ago
Quoted from DreamTR:

I run numerous Sterns, JJP, Spooky, and even Dutch machines along with all the other stuff I have.
The arcade I own is the largest in the South. Probably 3rd or 4th largest in the country and we put these through the ringer in tournaments as well.

Is it Game Terminal ? If not whats the name of your spot ?

#3468 7 days ago
Quoted from Zablon:

I've still had LESS problems with Alien than I had with R&M.

This doesn't bode well for me since I have a Halloween on order, and it's my first Spooky.

#3487 7 days ago
Quoted from DreamTR:

but this romanticizing of boutique stuff needs to stop.

Quoted from cpr9999:

you had to be romanticizing a bit here
