Quoted from xeneize:

I WANT to like the Catwoman translite, but what is up with the cat statue just sort of floating on her arm... that looks REALLY lazy to me...
[quoted image]

Well, they originally had it down by her legs, but the jokes just wrote themselves...

Quoted from Spyderturbo007:

That's definitely a nice lineup you have there. I just can't get into Dialed In, so that would be on my chopping block. Other than that, I can definitely see your dilemma.

Yeah, Stern Pirates and Dialed In look like the weak ones in that lineup. But definitely Stern Pirates first.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

No way, Dialed In is one of the best games in that lineup and one of the best games in pinball. I would sell TNA, IM, and then Tron first (in that order lol). I love Batman 66 and briefly considered selling my Dialed In LE for one. Then I played Dialed In again and said no way, just too much fun and one of the most loaded games in pinball.

Dialed In is loaded, but boring, similar to, but different than Hobbit. TONS of mechanical action that surprisingly adds up to a yawn after playing it a while.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Boring to you, your opinion, many others enjoy it (same with Hobbit). Sold my TZ for a Dialed In LE and haven't looked back. Game pays homage to several of Pat Lawlors previous games along with a bunch of new features.

Of course it's an opinion. I can understand the homage/lack of new ideas angle, but the game is dull over time FOR ME. Which is why it was one of the two I said should be sold from that collection. You had the opposite opinion.

Welcome to pinside.

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

"I talked to John Borg while we took a dump at TPF bathroom and he told me his next game will be his best game ever."
People were absolutely over expecting.
The main problem/ difference between Munsters and Batman 66 is, that with Batman there is no Pro.

And with Munsters there is no Super LE. The Premium is the Pro on Batman because they shifted everything up to gouge the customers.

Quoted from luvthatapex2:

Or they had extra costs to pay Kamikow for the license and his part in securing it... why so negative?

Because we actually bought an SLE and the "extras" were pathetic and the support post-sale was worse than any Stern we've had. They didn't even make enough extra SLE cabinet decals for warranty support. We were sent one with the shooter plate mounted badly that delaminated the front decal on the coin door area and the replacement we were sent didn't even match. AT ALL. If you've seen an SLE in person you know how awesome the cabinet looks with the foil look and the high gloss. In fact when we got it, I asked to buy a spare decal set since we were putting it on route and I wanted protection against un-repairable damage to the cabinet. They told us to wait 6 months. The spares never showed up, and since we couldn't buy them when the machine was made, we were sent a completely unusable decal to fix a factory assembly defect. Completely unacceptable support for a $15,000 item that was essentially the same as a $8000 LE except for the cabinet.

Quoted from kermit24:

Why put a $15,000 (1 of 80) game on location?

So people can play it? There were not many SLEs available for the public to see/play. We had a good location for it where people don't abuse the pins. It all worked out. But never again on the SLE con. Stern ruined that one themselves with a terrible effort on making it special and bad support.

But you can still sign up to have batman call or text you:

Quoted from kermit24:

Well, since the premium plays the same I would operate that one, but to each their own. I thought Sunshine in NYC was the only location to have an SLE. Where is yours at?

Oh, it's long gone. We had it out for about a year waiting for code that didn't come until 6 months after we sold it. It was at Shameless O'leery's in Redding, CA. Lineup there is currently jjPotC LE, Maiden Prem, AfMrLE. AfMLE replaced Batman SLE and earned WAY better.

Quoted from docquest:

For those modders who want a catwoman hallmark ornament the ornament factory is doing a 33% off sale with code "SUMMER33". It says they have limited quantity of catwoman left. The discount gets the pre-shipping price down to about $24 which is less than what you usually see them for on ebay.
Heres a detailed post on how to light up the diamond her hand.

I don't know how it will work out yet, but I'm trying to do a 3D version of the cat statues on pedestals to replace the flat plastics, much like the 3D Anubis from Iron Maiden.
