I happen to already own that Jet Jaguar figure, good to see it fits.

#1152 6 months ago

This is what I’m using to mount all the figures, and they are holding well so far.

Quoted from Concretehardt:

Sounds like this is the way it will be as the brain doesn’t heal from radiation treatment, could alway be worse I guess.
I want to mention to all of you LE guys, be very careful lifting your playfields. With the art blades on this game the playfield seem to fit very tight! You can easily damage your art blades when lifting your playfield. I highly recommend using some type of protection like what is pictured below to protect your blades.[quoted image]

I’ve been in and out of this game all day long and have been super anxious about messing up the art blades. This is exactly what I need. Where did you get those?

#1154 6 months ago
Quoted from gambit3113:

Well. Look there. This is the Bandai one that is readily available at Target right now. He’s in the back of the store with the Funko Pops, on the back wall of the electronics section. He fits like a glove.

That works well with the game since when you're chaining that loop, you're spinning him around.

I've got my Monsterarts 1954 Godzilla on order, as well 2019 Monsterarts Rodan, Mothra, and Ghidorah to sit on top of the backbox (all the flyers sit high). Alas, no notice of shipment on LE yet

#1157 6 months ago

Got the news my LE shipped. Pretty exciting to say the least. My first nib since Maiden and I thought I was done and on my way out of the hobby. My health returning made me really miss the hobby and even some of you.

#1158 6 months ago

Any LE owners having stuck ball issues like pictured here? Have had to remove the glass 3 or 4 times now to free it.

No issues for me in about 30 games.

Quoted from PinFever:

Anyone else in Florida Waiting on their LE ?
So far a bunch of Florida ones out of the Box having issues. I was told better for the later LE's but i didnt see many Defects on first run Of LE's and here out of the last few posted we have issues...oh boy.
The NIB lottery is very worrisome at this level of $$$$$$$

Still waiting for mine. Wasn't aware of issues, aside from seeing some showing up with a foreign plug. Shall see...

This happened on a Premium at expo. I was waiting to play it and freed the ball for them. Keys in the door.

Can you provide more info as to what event is triggering it to land there? Is it random?

Quoted from eyeamred2u:

Multiball. And ball collision knocks one up there each time it has happened. Wish the mech Godzilla arm could articulate.

#1166 6 months ago

Played a bunch of games today…does this game have an extra ball to earn? Haven’t seen one yet…first pin I have that doesn’t have one. Love it though, easily my favorite stern.

#1167 6 months ago

Somebody posted one getting a Pro panel by mistake/
Another a Building not working after one go /
Another with Torn Artwork on the art blades.
/ But to be expected with as many they pump out .

Congrats all you LE buyers whom got them fast without issue .
Stern may have a Good boy over bad boy list of who gets em first or just another lottery .
1000 is allot though for getting em all out in one go.

Wonder if swinks or another 3D modder here could create something to help keep the ball out of that area.

I've had this happen on my LE once but it landed on top of his right arm between the arm and the side. I slapped the side of the cabinet and it dropped loose for me.

#1170 6 months ago

I haven’t had any ball hang up or weird airball things so far at all. I haven’t even heard a ball hit the glass during any game so far, and we’ve been playing the hell out of it since Wednesday night.

By the way LE #98 Is in the house safe and sound, it has played absolutely perfectly! The only thing I have done is hooked a Polk PSW 10 sub to it. I had to sell a machine to come up with the money to buy this, but it was worth every penny!

I have a feeling this game will topple MM as king of the hill.
I’m addicted to this pin.
I have a basement full of the top pins, no interest right now…
Godzilla is at my shop on location,
And I can’t wait to get back to work on Monday to play…

MM is a good game don't get me wrong, but it should never be rated no where as number one IMHO, I guess the old dinosaurs that always wanted to protect their valuable investment back in days just kept pumping the ratings. Had one it was fun for a while but it was time for someone to enjoy it....

#1182 6 months ago

It is an amazing game. Great theme. I I always cheer for Godzilla. When he comes we know there is going to be some serious ass kicking. Now we have a pinball game that does it too!

I cant wait to get my premium. All giddy for it

I'm waiting for a first batch Premium too. I know exactly what you mean.

#1187 6 months ago

This just in.......EM guy buys NIB Stern pin!!
First one and it's a LE.
Should arrive in a week or so and I'm so glad to hear everyone's positive reviews!
Anyone thinking chrome door? I already bought one. I think it needs and deserves it.
Have y'all been posting ratings?
I'm anxious to see where it debuts.....

#1188 6 months ago

Alright here’s my go at adding in the Neca Godzilla king of the monsters movie poster figure. Will monitor and see if a dab of glue is needed on the heat beam inside his mouth or if it stays put. Used the 3M double sided tape. Pretty straightforward. Tail has a ton of articulation to make it fit.

Going to try some different color flasher bulbs like a blue or purple to set off the colors differently. Pretty happy with result.

(Had to mention this in our club thread too)

At Pinball Expo today: Awesome humor Jeramy Packer! “Regarding my inspiration for Godzilla artwork: One day I was having lunch, eating some watermelon…but then I had even more inspiration eating a seedless watermelon…” Crackup funny! That is too good!!
(Of course Godzilla does not look like a watermelon, except they both are green.) ZY having some fun with a few criticizing that Godzilla looks like a watermelon. Lol

If people are honest with themselves and I know the old nostalgia factor is tough for some people to be able to admit, Godzilla will be number one without question, imo. MM was in its day a quarter of a century ago, but time for a new king and Godzilla lives up to that billing!

Can anyone seriously play MM then play Godzilla and then say MM is better? This game blows it away. This is next level pinball design. Like beautiful mind crazy. So good it united the most chaotic website - pinside!

Has anyone heard ANY pinsider say this game isn’t good? It’s crazy. Everyone agrees it’s great. The king is dead.

Yes I’ve earned an extra ball several times. I didn’t see an EB insert. Maybe I missed it.

Quoted from kermit24:

Any idea what you did to earn it….I feel like I’ve had some decent games, like half a billion and never seen.

The more I play the more I say it is absolutely the most fun game I’ve played. I can’t imagine it not becoming #1

I’m not sure what I did. I’m asking the nerds.

Edit: 10 Jet Fighters = extra ball on default settings. Unknown if there are other ways to earn one.

#1197 6 months ago

This is easily the most fun pin I’ve ever played. The flow is incredible. Elwin is on another level. It’s Iron Maiden meets Jurassic Park. Blew it up and can’t wait to play again

Don’t get me wrong, I absolutely love Godzilla so far…but MM is also incredible. I have no nostalgic attachment to it, didn’t get into pinball until more recently. The theme, rules and flow of MM are top notch…I’ve played a lot of pins and MM deserves it spot to me. It’s easy enough to understand for a casual player to walk up and have fun, but deep enough for hard core enthusiast to enjoy mastering. That’s not taking anything away from Godzilla…I thinks it’s a bit to soon to officially crown it, but definitely think it’s possible for it to be eventually viewed as the pinnacle of pinball.

#1199 6 months ago

Decided to go in on a pro. Played an LE today. For me the up-charge for a premium just not worth it. The pro was a blast and my daughters loved it.

The premium is cool and all, it’s just it didn’t add any play value for me. The flow on the pro just felt much better. The price increase on premiums really was the main deciding factor for me. $2300 is a lot more.

I was not thrilled with GZ but after playing it and seeing it in person I love it. Will go great next to my AIQ pro and eventually my JP3 premium when it ever ships.

I have a Godzilla toy ready to go. If anyone is looking for a pro lmk. Have a great distributor. Just message me.
