Quoted from Swoods5688:

Anyone seeing premiums delivered yet?

My is scheduled for the week of 14th.

#1602 6 months ago
Quoted from Pinball-NJA:

I believe some are designed so you can’t post pass…

Post passes are impossible on my The Walking Dead (Pro) as well.

#1603 6 months ago
Quoted from fxdwg:

mine are that way too. im guessing its due to the fact they dont powder coat at the ends where the clasps connect. it would get beat to crap anyway. (or would make it harder to lock it down due to thickness/space.

Yeah, that's what my distro said too. Probably going to mask off the lockbar and spray the rusty parts with gray Rustoleum. The thought of those rusty bits going into the pristine lockbar slots (Hey now) of my new game makes me cringe.

#1604 6 months ago

I would jsut use the sliver Rustoleum hammer paint

#1605 6 months ago
Quoted from doghouse:

Picked up LE #781 after work yesterday. Got home and set it up, and though I've only played about a half dozen games on it, I'm loving it!
A couple small tweaks-- the right-hand scoop connector was totally disconnected and needed to be plugged in. The left side wire form needed to move left, as the ball got stuck on the sling plastic.
The one very weird and disturbing thing is rust on both interior brackets of the powder-coated lockbar. Anyone else have this?[quoted image][quoted image]

Almost all my LEs have this straight outta the box.

Quoted from SimpleSkin:

Just wondering if anyone here has ordered a premium from Cointaker and if so have they heard anything from them yet. I ordered from them and I'm hoping to hear something soon.

Don't worry about Cointaker. Melissa and Chris are great to work with and will ship your premium as soon as they get it. I'm on my 4th game with them and wouldn't buy from anyone else. I am receiving my LE today and couldn't be any happier.

#1608 6 months ago

This pic needs to go into the Pinside Hall Of Fame!

Quoted from Chetrico:

Anyone else using their knee to charge the heat ray? Or their belly? Or what ever else is available?

chin

#1612 6 months ago

This is why I play in my boxers, with the right motivation you throw down the dirk diggler heat ray move.

Quoted from Hayfarmer:

#467 in and looking good!!

those lights are awesome. Where did you get those and the city skyline?

#1616 6 months ago

SpeakerLightKits.com

#1617 6 months ago

But not sure if they are available yet

#1618 6 months ago
Quoted from Hayfarmer:

#467 in and looking good!!

Does Doug have the flame lights available now? I want them as well, as I love his other ones, but didn't see them on his website yet.

#1619 6 months ago
Quoted from Mando:

Contact stern , I assume its a decal that got nicked? They can send you a new one with proof of the damage even if you dont replace it good to have on hand.

Thanks for the advice. Not pretty close up, but on the side I don't look at and it is very near bottom. I will send a pic to Stern. I think the shipper need to be more careful. Game plays great straight out of box no issues.

Heat it with a hair blower ( not to hot just to soften the decal to lay it flat, a little marker touch up and it will never be noticed. In addition contact Stern first you might just get a new side decal sent anyway.

Would be nice if Stern could wrap the cabs in shipping plastic before boxing them. Even add $50 or whatever to the machine price, I'd pay that cost without hesitation.

#1622 6 months ago

My insider scanner stopper working. It just makes a low beeping noise and doesn’t register the qr code. It had been working just fine for several days. The diagnostics say I’m connected to internet so not sure what the issue is. Anyone else have issues with insider not registering?

Quoted from Rockytop:

I can't get my game to read my QR code. I have the game registered, it's connected to WIFI. I have my Stern insider code pulled up on my phone, but the game won't read it. It beeps twice and that's it.

This is exactly what’s happening to me…maybe the service is down?

#1623 6 months ago

it just started working again. I feel like it could have been an issue of the stern side.

Wow really lucky. I can’t wait. Mine comes tomorrow. Probably won’t sleep much tonight.

#1626 6 months ago
Quoted from Hayfarmer:

Yea, I don't think they're there yet. I keep looking for my Black Knight Sword of Rage -- because it's pretty much a requirement for that table.

#1627 6 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Wow, really weird there's not a slim post where those two lane guides don't quite come together.

Could you put a blue nub of death there?

#1628 6 months ago
Quoted from pickleric:

Could you put a blue nub of death there?

I'm not sure how it could be attached securely. It seems MADE for a slim post. I'm not sure why they'd leave it like that. Out of sight, out of mind, perhaps?

#1629 6 months ago

wooo! #839 nice and safe. No room for a good while during remodeling, so will be sitting at work for a year or so. There was a vinyl figure that I loved how close its design matched the artwork, unfortunately was about an inch too tall. Did get it scanned so I can scale it down to print and seems to be a perfect fit. Just need to get my buddy to paint it (I suck at brush work).

I am working on a Xilien ship mod though, and now that I can mess with lighting size fitting, should have something up in a day or two. ATM, just sucks I have to wait till after hours or weekend to play...people in their offices would not be too happy.

That print looks awesome.

#1631 6 months ago
Quoted from pickleric:

I’ve ordered one to try there. If the pinch doesn’t hold it I’ll put a post behind it or something.

#1632 6 months ago
Quoted from crwjumper:

Maybe something the modding community could 3D print that snaps into place between the 2 lane guides?

Definitely an issue on their side - the issues actually started last night. Glad it's back.

#1634 6 months ago

I remember reading all of the posts about how good the cabinet looks man I just wasn't sure but this thing looks amazing in person I don't know if it's the phone cameras not being able to capture it or what? Don't tell anyone, still trying to finish the work day but this makes it really distracting!

Quoted from Pinball-NJA:

I usually shoot the Tesla to lob over,
But yah I can’t post pass on this or AIQ

I have trouble post passing on Avengers, but it's mainly because there isn't enough power to get it to spring over.

On this machine however, the issue is that the call immediately pops up rather than bouncing off the star post and transferring to the other flipper.

#1636 6 months ago

I just played the Godzilla pro if anybody is on the fence between the pro or the premium, either one is fantastic!

It reminds me of Deadpool gameplay. On that game between a pro and premium, you can't go wrong.

#1637 6 months ago

The pro is a great game. I think premium/LE is the biggest difference ever. The game play is still roughly the same, just more cool toys.

Had this happen to me this morning after working fine last night as well

Dude. That looks sick! I've gotta have that!

For sure I have had two games come with a minor ding, but when its an LE you want it pristine ! Maybe that blue stuff they use on the rails all over.

#1641 6 months ago

I just got off the phone with Automated. The premium Godzilla machines will be shipping out next week.

Very nice looking…..can I have it?

#1644 6 months ago

When is mecha-Godzilla supposed to magnet grab the ball?

Haven't seen it once in the couple of hours I've played. I've started the MG multiball numerous times, bit no magnet action.

#1645 6 months ago

Just got it set up and playing. Played maybe 6 quick games, still don't know what I'm doing. I like the way the center building works and the kind of easy multiball. Funny callouts "Good golly miss molly jackpot" and such.

Just curious how much do you guys bump the back legs on the pin? I didn't get to measure the level but just a rough estimate if you guys turn the rear legs (extended) like an inch or half an inch or what?

I do have the balls go STM in the building multiball, maybe need to put a clear dot on the lower plastic or something to change the path.

Just had a few games, not sure how I feel about the game play since I'm just feeling my way around, but the actual cabinet, back glass, the PF art and armor are all fantastic. This is the most expensive pin I have bought but at least the LE feels special (love the invisible glass).

I really love the real back glass but did Stern need to adhere the certificate on that way? I needed to get Goo Gone to get the adhesive off.

I forgot to take a picture but my pin was made on 10-28-21 (iirc)

Got tracking on my Premium today. Looks like middle of next week delivery if there are no snafoos

#1647 6 months ago

I have not tried the Stern app (connect), what do I nee to do to get started?

#1648 6 months ago
Quoted from Tiltbob:

Heh, thanks. Since its a scan from an official source, I'll make them occasionally for anyone interested and not make them in large qty. Gotta see how well my buddy can paint it. Asked him to have it match the color scheme of ZY godzilla

#1649 6 months ago
Quoted from SimpleSkin:

I ordered mine from Cointaker and I got it on Tuesday! It wasn’t delivered though I picked it up locally from their warehouse that’s very close to Stern.

#1650 6 months ago

FedEx called today, originally scheduled delivery of my premium for tomorrow, then called back and had to change it to Monday because they told me they didn't have a lift gate. I told them that's fine I have forks, only to be told that they already moved it to Monday....blah....

I guess I can wait a couple more days.
