#1 game of all time! Huge Stern hit.

#2 1 year ago

Just ordered an LE lucky. Who else is ordering theirs today? Looks sweet. I don't mind the up-charge since they look like the spent it on tech. The building collapsing is cool.

#3 1 year ago

Secured my LE yesterday at msrp!! So stoked

Congrats.

#5 1 year ago

In before the lock!

#6 1 year ago

Could you imagine the money that rolls in today alone. I own a successful business but this is next level. Distributors saying is crazier then Mando launch. Congrats to Elwin and Stern for what looks like another win!

#7 1 year ago

I’m going to watch the stream and hopefully decide but it looks like a great pin.

#8 1 year ago

Ordered a Premium as soon as it went up on my distributor's site!
Super pumped to get my second pin, and for it to be based on one of my all time favourite franchises!

#9 1 year ago

Secured an LE yesterday.

#10 1 year ago

Who needs a new truck anyway? Reserved a LE today! Godzilla franchise is one of my all time favorites.

#11 1 year ago

Ordered LE .

#12 1 year ago

Ordered a Premium this morning! Congrats to the LE victors!

#13 1 year ago

Ordered my first LE, this just looked so much better than I expected.

does your distributor have any left

#15 1 year ago

What street pricing are people seeing for LE? I found two available for $13500 but not fancy on taking that price - at all.

#16 1 year ago
Quoted from VirtualMayhem:

I'm in Sweden so that wouldn't help you much buddy

#17 1 year ago

I called in a Premium order, for "Whenever", based on the shortage expected everywhere on Sterns....

Quoted from chickenscratch:

Not seeing under $13k...there's one distro in Chicago saying they'll do 12, but they don't know how many slots they'll have. I locked in my Premium for now.

#19 1 year ago

In on an LE. Cant wait to see it next to Ultraman.

Quoted from Muymanwell:

I finally found a few under $12k, one actually at msrp

any left? i still haven't found any non-gougers w/ stock

#22 1 year ago

I’m also trying for an LE if anyone has a connection.

#23 1 year ago

Looking to order a LE and a JP premium at same time if anyone knows any distributors with any LE’s left

#24 1 year ago

This is crazy. These are selling out faster than concert tickets in the 80’s. $10.5k is no joke. Don’t get me wrong, I’m willing to pay it…I’ve been fortunate with my two jobs and I thought I was in the minority to be able to have this kind of money AND be willing to part with it for a pinball machine. I see now I’m wrong because there seems to be many more out there than I could have imaged. I wish I could get one. I refuse to get gouged at $13k. I’ll still try to get one but $10k is the upper limit for me.

#25 1 year ago

Got my LE

Yes I know of one left at MSRP but three others are interested and I told the first one and giving him some time. Then I’ll let the rest know in order, so dm me if you want the info.

#27 1 year ago

I bought an LE. $11300 plus $425 shipping

#28 1 year ago

In on a Premium but can't stand the dick chest translite so will be looking to purchase a pro translite in the future.

Thanks. I did grab that last one. Crazy, never thought I’d have a hard time finding one at these prices plus 1000 made.

Tomorrow is my Birthday so I guess that’s my present.

So you felt compelled to start 2 owners threads today and just change the title?

Well… HAPPY BIRTHDAY from me to you, but you’re paying for your present

Thanks again.

I have 2 dealers who I buy from. I’m not a power buyer but have bought like 9-10 nib pins over the past decade from these two dealers, like 4-5 each. So I figured should be ok to get an LE. Well struck out on Mando but didn’t really feel like that was my pin so didn’t try other dealers. But I told both to put me on the LE list for Godzilla. But both told me today I didn’t make the cut.

I kind of prefer Spooky where you can order first come first served.

I think **** this is just my thoughts *** that dealers are holding back and selling for higher price. Maybe not to me because I’m a buyer who wants a no markup. Maybe they know me and figure let’s not and I can sell to xyz buyer for an extra $$$.

#35 1 year ago

Ordered my premium and will get it when I get it . No rush - let them work out the mechanical and electrical bugs before they ship me my machine .

#36 1 year ago

Ordered a Premium. Can't wait to unbox this beast. Artwork is amazing. I am in comic book heaven right now.

#37 1 year ago

What makes this an "official" thread?

No problem my man, happy to help.

I was shocked, and stoked, to find a distro I’ve never dealt with offering MSRP. Let’s keep this one close to the chest as they may come in handy down the road on future LEs

The first person with enough ego to call it official

#40 1 year ago

R my eyes deceiving me or are there 3 spinners on the pro? Now I'm getting excited.

#41 1 year ago

I had to pay a premium but I finally got in on an LE today! I wish I knew I could have watched the Stern webpage at launch and bought one for MSRP without being on a distributor's list.

#42 1 year ago

i cast no vote . i am not in,and the game looks fun as heck , but
How many of the 31 getting LE are just flipping it?
interested in the statistic mostly.

Yeah, learning experience for me today. New to the hobby and dont have any relationships with distributors so attempted the Stern early access approach. Its decently doable, but I should have prepared more and at the very least called my bank(s) to allow the transactions to go through. I had issues finding my wallet at drop, then tried a couple of cards that were all declined due to fraud alerts. For future drops, should be able to hit MSRP if I take the proper procedures to not screw myself over. Did end up landing with a local dealer a bit later at a markup, but since they're new with their partnership with Stern, kinda dont mind paying that much of a hike in price to support a local business.

Can we just get this changed over to the official owner’s thread and settle on one thread to rule them all?

Yes. And the next Stern thread shouldn't be about Godzilla anymore.

How bout the thread authors battle it out to decide who gets the honor?

Yeah I had them named different but Pinside changed it and said can't name it owners club until Stern ships them so they changed to preorder club.
