I was surprised by those naked scoops. Haven't all recent Sterns shipped with "Cliffy's"?

I'm extremely impressed with everything I've seen so far, and can't wait to see some actual gameplay! I do hope, though, that "just replace it with a dead-end stand-up target" doesn't become the designers' go-to. Dead-end shots are no fun, and this Pro has not one, but two features replaced with them.

The more I look at the models, the more I'm digging the simpler cabinet artwork of the Premium. I think I like its translite the best as well. And is this just a weird image artifact, or am I seeing too many strings on Geddy's bass on the Pro? Pretty sure I haven't started drinking yet, so that can't be it.

Quoted from AUKraut:

A friend of mine RebelGuitars posted a pic on FB with a mirrored TMNT and the new RUSH Layout.....
[quoted image]

Right, but I didn't include TMNT because it doesn't have the trademark X-Men/TRON pop bumper garden shoot through on the left or right. The pop bumpers are completely moved to the top of the PF.

#1903 4 months ago
Quoted from nicoy3k:

I wonder if it means this will play as fast/mean as TMNT

I hope it's a little easier. I love TMNT (and iirc you do too) but when you're a little off you're waaaaay off. Hoping Rush is a bit more forgiving since there are some long jams.

Looks like a 6 string bass to me only issue is it’s missing some of the tuning knobs on bottom of head stock.

Here is Geddy talking about his bass

"I have some 6-string basses at home," Geddy said, adding (transcribed by UG): "In fact, I have far too many six string basses. ... "My '62 Fender Jazz Bass is my favorite to play right now. I have just fallen in love with these basses from 1962.

Oh Snap - too many string (6, should be 4), and too few tuning pegs (3, and their should be 4). Maybe this loose art work is meant to be this way, who knows.

Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

I do love the spooky model. Halloween is my first title and the CE is what I opted for. A lot there for the price.

BallyKISS1978

Be Careful what you ask for !!!

I'll also going to guess you don't have your Halloween-CE in hand yet ?!?

spooky's Customer Service USED to be AWESOME (AMH and RZSSI)!!

I haven't gotten ANY support on the couple of very minor issues we've had with ACNC and almost no support for the multitude of serious issues on RnM ???

Why is Geddy playing a six string guitar?

They shoot these promos using sample/proto games....I have to imagine the shipped game will have protectors. I'll be shocked if they ship bare.

I thought it was Giddy

#1914 4 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

I was thinking of the times Borg has reused this basic layout (regular or mirrored) and came up with:
(left/right version is where the pop bumpers are, and designates regular or mirrored layout)
2008 Indiana Jones (Stern) - Left version (2 flipper)
2010 TRON - Right version (3 flipper)
2011 Xmen - Left Version (3 flipper)
2015 KISS - Left version (2 flipper)
2017 Aerosmith - Left Version (2 flipper - main PF)
2022 Rush - Left Version (3 flipper)
So I think TRON is the only one where he put the shot through the pop bumpers on the right. Is there any I missed?

You could probably lump in the first SW, JP, MSF, and HD. TWD may be just different enough not to include but not too far off either.

#1915 4 months ago
Quoted from TinyBlackDog:

Any thoughts why 1978 plays such a prominent role in the artwork? It is on the time machine and the right RUSH standups. Hemispheres was released in 1978 and it looks like Cygnus X-1 (which spanned A Farewell to Kings and Hemispheres) are two of the mini-wizard modes, with 2112 possibly being the main wizard mode. Any other ideas?
Probably just a random date, but interesting to speculate...

It's the year my wife was born, helps with the forgiveness after ordering

Middle name Up

His name is actually Gary...but his mom pronounced it "Geddy" with her Polish accent, so all the local kids thought his name as "Geddy" & it stuck.

Me:[quoted image]

i was outlining to my wife the small steps that have lead to me getting into Rush, culminating in getting the Rush pinball

my wife has outlined how that will be a pivotal step culminating in our divorce.

oh well, any good dating sites out there for men of our ilk?

Quoted from cooked71:

100% agree Our_Man_in_Oz . Will be really interesting to see how much interest in the game down here.

Been delivering GNR everywhere and i ask people what they want in Australia next and answer is always Godzilla and Toy Story. I mention Rush and always same blank stare.

Quoted from cdnpinbacon:

It was just discovered that Geddy Lee is playing a 6-string bass instead 4 on the Pro.. so not only is the backglass cool but on the sideart it has now been deemed an 'error' and the value has gone up already by $2,000.

yeah they had some OK ideas with the Rush playfield, but they need to make it, like, DOUBLE WIDE. Then it'd be twice as fun

Quoted from Nightmare:

What song is missing that you wish were in the game? I would have liked to have Time Stand Still. Especially with the clock in the game already.

Wishful thinking (and not technically a Rush song), but it sure would be nice to hear the chorus to "Take Off" when my game ends

FUN FACT: Geddy & Rick Moranis went to grade school together in Toronto

I personally have never heard of them before seeing this pin.

Quoted from SLAMT1LT:

Never heard of Rush in my 51 years on the planet

Quoted from noob-a-tron:

Not much radio play for Rush in other countries I guess?

Makes me think of Manowar. Was never popular here in the US but they sell out soccer stadiums in other countries.

And this will be the only thing I see on the art anytime I approach the game. I can’t un-see it!!

#1933 4 months ago
Quoted from onemilemore:

Ha this is wild. Upper half layout is pretty similar but there are some significant diffferences between TMNT and Rush:
- Diverter is standard on Rush (Prem/LE only on TMNT)
- Up the middle has the Time Machine on Rush
- Lower half has thru pops, drops, and standups instead of two mono-targets.

It's not 100% identical, but 90% is pretty damn close. To Borg's friends, it's his "signature style". To his enemies, he "mailed it in".

#1934 4 months ago

Gene and Paul have many times talked about their friendship with Rush - even mentioned in their books a few times, including Neil's books.

There was a photo of Paul and Geddy and Alex on an airport tarmac a few years ago - they were passing through and caught up briefly.

Wasn’t sure I wanted this title when it was rumored, but once it was revealed, glad I bought the LE.

I’ll be happy to sell this “Geddy Lee 6 string bass” as a topper for the pro. Bargain at $4200.
I’ll even remove 3 of the tuning pegs for you if you’d like. C3062861-C10C-464C-936C-F3A43B678CF7 (resized).jpeg

I just listened to the two Stern Insider podcasts which were great! Highly recommend.

The design team said it was a “forgiving” playing game. So there is some hope it won’t be as punishing as some of John’s other games. Time will tell.

#1940 4 months ago

The owl has to be the best art I've seen at the bottom of any playfield. BTW "hoser" is not a derogatory name. ( for our Aussie friends)

Are people moving the outlane posts tighter when a game is too hard? Any game can have its difficulty tweaked pretty easily. I've been bitching about Godzilla being such a brutal drainer...I need to take my own advice and tighten up those outlanes lol

#1946 4 months ago

I'm hoping you land a Rush LE Gryszzz

Then, maybe I can invite myself over to play a few games.....LOL

Here's to wishing you luck neighbor....

#1947 4 months ago

Not in on the Rush - sorry just dont like the theme. Same issue with IM... Two great pins (assuming Rush plays as good as it looks). But does make me excited about Venom and Bond.

#1948 4 months ago

I wonder if Jamel_AKA_Jamal grabbed himself a pin yet? apparently Rush is his favorite band now. Good stuff!

#1949 4 months ago

Really on the fence over getting a pro or premium. I strangely much prefer the art on the premium, but I can't decide if that and a few gameplay enhancements are worth the extra 2k. At the end of the day, it's the same game.

#1950 4 months ago

Rush is not for everyone. Which is probably why I couldn't get enough as a teen. If you don't appreciate the technical side of music or listen to lyrics you won't get it. The premium art captures the 80s for me.
