Let me be the first to say,
I buy what "I" like.
As a former magazine subscriber, I am all in.

I just pray that this is not one of Burton & Cybs' scams.

All the pictures I have seen do not show the built playfield clearly. Will it have phone screens?
I am a fan of the 2 different sides and the colour change paint.
Plus, I enjoy playing Star Wars pro.

"Death, death to all who oppose us!"

Before you get excited,its not going to be a cornerstone pin from Stern but a re-theme of star Wars home edition. and MSRP is going to be $8299.

#3 1 year ago

The pics are grainy, but I do see a 2 slot coin door.
I was under the impression home builds have no coin slot at all. Wasted material.

Under the impression it is a rethemed home model

Still buying.
Love the magazine. Really hope people opt out to increase my rarity down the road.
Plan on keeping a long time.
Plus it should be a hell of a lot lighter!

#4 1 year ago

You might want to check out the stern teaser video of Heavy MEtal to see it in action until we have a full gameplay video.

It’s the same playfield as the home game.

#6 1 year ago

Luckily they don't allow club thread until the game is shipping (sometimes maybe I guess) so they can just erase this entire thread and all your dreams and you can move on. Sorry

The pics are out and it was confirmed long ago to be a reskin of Star Wars Home Edition.

If it wasn't for the crazy price I might be interested. Huge fan of the movie and mags so this should have been a grail pin for me but think it is a huge wast of an their license.

#9 1 year ago

The art work is better than expected, but the play field is meh.

#10 1 year ago

Top right figurine looks terrible...

-1
#11 1 year ago

Elvira was expensive, but it came with a lot of bells and whistles. I'm only seeing sparkle powder coating and side art with HM. Otherwise looks like a standard Pro.

Also keep in mind that this is a retheme of SW home edition, which greatly detracts from the coolness of the game, imo.

#13 1 year ago

But considering it's not a cornerstone pin, it could be worse

#14 1 year ago

Would have been nice if it came with some lollypop rails.

#15 1 year ago

Would love to hang the translite in my game room though. Love the theme, not the price or re-skin home playfield.

I do like the sparkley lockdown bar. The theme and the layout... less so.

#18 1 year ago

Can't wait for the alt translights!

#19 1 year ago

I spoke with Heavy Metal on messenger the other day.
Always funny to chat with non pinheads

Oh yes its a full sized machine,
It even has a functioning coin door so you can put it on location to earn.

Buddy, it takes a special type to buy a re themed home unit and then put it out to earn.

May as well flush $ down a toilet.
Parts will be hard enough to find already.

I have a dark corner right over there for it. Maybe since it is lighter and smaller it may make it to the odd show with me.

Backglass is an alternate cover of issue "300"

With the cost of shipping it was more reasonable to buy a 1 year subscription to Canada.

Plan on leaving a copy of 300 in the goodie bag.

Rumour has it the pinball will not release to coincide with issue 300.

Hoping I get a bit if a discount on price as white glove setup is included in the US.

#21 1 year ago

Ordered the # print from Incendium of the backglass art.
Will look great framed up.
Will eat up the wall space until something else comes along.

The "home" edition star wars is a really fun good shooting game. The only complaint usually is the ball lock is more luck than skill since it can bounce out. However many feel it is more fun than the real pro. This is a great game and looks amazing!

Screen shot from there page. Wonder how many they sold?

#24 1 year ago

If you are really curious keep your eye on how long it takes that "limited edition" action figure to sell out on the right. If they can't sell 400 of those, how many 8K pinballs do you think are flying off the shelves?

#25 1 year ago

The Magazine has been hit and miss for me for years.
I renewed for a year.
Lets see what Incendium is going to bring to Heavy Metal.
Has to have that content...

#26 1 year ago
Quoted from northvibe:

Many? I'd be surprised with 1 person feeling that way and its doubtful they ever played a pro.

#27 1 year ago

I had more fun playing SW LE.
Just waiting for an airball for all those mini screens.

It's a homepin re-theme.
Call it what you like.
It is what it is.

As a former and now again subscriber.
The magazine better not be hit and miss anymore.

#28 1 year ago

Art print #15 showed up with a dent in the tube.
Print has horrible wrinkles.
Sent pics to Incendium.
Lets see if they make it right.

#29 1 year ago

When framing costs more than the print. The print better be right.

They sold two

#31 1 year ago

I am #15 on the list (#1 in Canada)
Had to provide proof that the # print was destroyed before being issued a replacement.

#32 1 year ago

I just ordered mine. Anyone else out there?
I actually like the magazine, some great contributions over the years. Who can deny Jodorowski or Moebious? The original movie is epic (highly recommended for any stoner out there). These are enough for me to own it. And I have a SW premium.

#33 1 year ago

How can you tell they sold two??

#34 1 year ago

I am sure they (Incendium) must have bought 5-10

Production is capped at 300.

Incendium had no problem matching the print # to the magazines # included with the machine.
Enjoy the white glove setup that I don't get for the same price.

Game music is not downloadable from the pin like DP.

Primus only sold 100 units.
Time will only tell, ordering is open for a year.

#35 1 year ago

My backglass art print arrived.
Out at framing.
Latest from Incendium is production slated for Oct/Nov

Issue 300 is next.

#36 1 year ago

A little pissed that Avengers IQ seemed to jump the que.
I guess people want pins before the next price increase.
Thank goodness my price is already set and deposit made.

#37 1 year ago

This game never shipped?

#38 1 year ago

Not yet,
Incendium still says Oct, Nov to Canada.
No word from Stern.
Must be too busy to worry about existing deposits.

#39 11 months ago

Start of November.
I checked in with Incendium to inquire if any pins have been shipped.
I was informed that assemblies are finished and heading to the line.
Production (in some form) will begin next week.

Soon enough this thread will relate to a production pinball.

I did not inquire as to how many models have sold currently.

#40 11 months ago

Shipping was to begin this week.
Thursday, my distributor has heard nothing as of yet.
Don't call us we'll call you.

Only have 3 work days left until year end vacation.....

If you have yours, post some pics.

If you are in the EU, I feel for you paying in canadian dollars (0.75).

#41 10 months ago

I heard from Incendium on saturday.
They are claiming that shipping will begin tomorrow Dec 14.
Who knows, maybe I will have it by weeks end.

#42 10 months ago

No pin as of end of business day friday.
Hopefully next week before X-mas.

#43 9 months ago

I had to call my distributor re holiday hours.
My NiB 'may' be on the next truck shipment on tuesday.
Due to lockdown measures in the region, I can go get curbside pickup wednesday.
That's my last chance for HM this year.

Still wondering how many EU buyers may have opted to drop out when the tariff came in.
May be some extra units lying about.

#44 9 months ago

Looking forward to your unboxing. It will be a rare game for sure.

Interesting side note.
The 'special' numbered issue of Heavy Metal magazine is NOT included.

Incendium was concerned that 'collectable' magazines cannot be just rolling around inside the machine.
Incendium claims they will mail out the special issues to owners.
Issue 300 was initially released with 4 variant covers. 2 Taarna, 1 Nelson, 1 blank.
Really hoping for a blank with custom art applied.
I also inquired into paying extra to have my issue encapsulated (bricked, slabbed). It would be a nice option.

Came home all wrapped up in the cold and rain

Drying out, just to be sure.

Your patience was well rewarded. Congrats on the new pin

#49 9 months ago

Congrats on the game, as a Heavy Metal fan, the game looks like a good theme integration.
Ok, questions.
Did Incendium get all 300?
Do you have to buy it from Incendium?
You went through a distributer?
What was your final cost, if you dont mind sharing?
Did any U.S. distributers buy any?
Its funny, the dmd looks so cool, turns out I miss the dots.

Does anyone have the full list of songs in the machine?
I've seen incomplete lists of artists, but nothing definitive.
Artists- song titles
