I'm sure it will be fast and fun to play...but the cab artwork is a huge letdown IMO. But I'm betting once you are playing it, you won't give a crap lol
But I also agree it feels empty...and I hated that about Star Wars too. Definitely not an instant buy for me...I'd have to play it first to even consider buying, especially at these prices...

Looks empty and relatively life-less. Seems like they spent so much money on the license that there was nothing left for the actual innovation in the game. Glad JJP was lucky enough to get GnR to give it the proper respect it deserves. I wanted to love this pin, and was hoping for something at least as good as Stern JP given the big license. Guess at some point I'll play it and have a better opinion, but really bummed by what I'm seeing. I would be embarrassed to put this next to my GnR. It could go next to my Metallica, but that's kind of sad to say since Metallica is a lot older and shouldn't look like the same level of quality at the prices being charged today.

Pro fo sho. The naked winged guy is all over the playfield, toys, plastics. Do you really need him on the LE backglass as well?!?!

Hype is over. Not impressed. Terrible art man dang.

Quoted from TKDalumni:

Anyone else they think the side lights look like Pingraffix Power Blades? If not, certainly that can be replicated pretty easily...

No it can not. Its integrated with songs just like GnR that everyone loves

Quoted from TKDalumni:

It kind of looks like the blades have a removable panel to access the bulbs I would assume. I think I saw a seam and some screws in the video.

#807 1 year ago

The artwork I did in high school on my 3 ring binder looked better then the L.E.
The Premium NAILED it!

#808 1 year ago

For the shots I kind of get an Avengers IQ premium meets ACDC vibe.

#809 1 year ago

They should have put the angel guy on there more. And made it oranger.

Why do I get the feeling the majority of people with negative comments really do not listen to Zeppelin and are throwing darts in the dark.

#812 1 year ago

I find it odd that we don’t see much (or any?) of the double neck guitar.

I'm a huge Led Zeppelin fan. I love the Pro art. What about my comment makes you think I do not listen to Led Zeppelin?

#814 1 year ago

Wow!! What shit... enjoy LE owners!!

#815 1 year ago

Well I did say, LZ Album art through the early times wasn't great.
To put it on the Pin was a mistake.

Art Deco Mothership with the symbols would have been killer for the LE!

True. The "winged guy" WAS Led Zeppelin back in the day, had a decal of Icarus on the rear window of my '69 Road Runner. As far as the art goes, LZ III is an iconic album cover and very polarizing and argued over back then as well. I think the market for alt translates for the Prem is going to be brisk. Personally I love the LE art, but hey blue is my favorite color. Peace

#817 1 year ago

Gosh.. this so far is a BIG disappointment.. I wasnt expecting the detail of GNR.. bug dang blimps/naked wingman EVERYWHERE.. strange colors..
And just really looks CHEAP.. all the time they put into getting and making this game and feels like I just picked up a candy wrapper, but there no candy bar inside..
ST LE, MET PRO, LOTR, even AC/DC so MUCH MORE THEME integrated and complete.. Sparky bash toy 10 x better than disappearing spinner clunker

#819 1 year ago

just catching up here.

wow - the LE is absolutely hideous. I always thought there wasn't enough naked angel dude on my pinball machines. Thanks Stern for fixing that.

Prem art I actually like the blimp but the same throughout? lazy

Pro is the best but that really does remind me of bugs. Not saying much. Art is an absolute mess.

Layout looks whatever - prem/LE doesn't appear to be worth it with pro being my choice without actually seeing the game.

No stairway btw? wow.

#820 1 year ago

Pass for me. Hope it works out for buyers.

#821 1 year ago

Problem with all those high res photos from the last page is that you can zoom in on them. First pic from the Prem. Second from the Pro. Minor stuff, but still crazy that they can't 100% fix the issues... and these are the PF's chosen for marketing.

#822 1 year ago

How in the Actual F is the LE not the Stairway to Heaven Model? And how is that song not the wizard mode, or in the freaking game. Thanks Stern for saving me 7600 in January. I bought TMNT Premium and AIQ Premium, I was excited about LZ....too ugly and a big miss based on this reveal. YMMV. Ill put a few bucks in it at the local barcade after covid

#823 1 year ago

This game is going to be great for someone....but that person is not me.

#824 1 year ago
Quoted from Percula:

The armor color is not the best choice .

I've already messaged Robert stone about any ideas he's had on changing color. He might be pretty busy with changing the le colors

#825 1 year ago

I can see why it took the 3 years and went over budget. Very impressive Stern.

#826 1 year ago

Note to self: Don't go on Pinside if you want to remain excited about a new game you're getting.

#827 1 year ago

Mentioned above as I was posting but that’s not good.

#828 1 year ago

I just changed my LE order to a premium. Just couldn’t handle the color of the trim and the overall art package on LE.

Sure you could have the trim powder coated in a different color but that still doesn’t change the whole overall art package. It’s really kind of bland and basic for an LE.

good try stern.

I LOOK for reasons to get excited about new things to waste money on. I love LZ even though it's a little before my time. I don't care at all if it's JJP or Stern if a machine is cool. Having said that, I can't justify even considering buying this. Maybe I can talk myself into a Premium at some point if the code turns out to be amazing? Maybe? I feel bad for the folks that have waited forever for this theme. Sucks when you finally get a pin with a dream theme and it turns out meh.

#831 1 year ago

Excited for the pin with implenting a lot of innovation in this game. Super flowy gameplay, lighting system synched with the game, rule set. Very excited despite art not being the best.

#832 1 year ago

Pro or bust for me depending on how the rules are. I think it has the strongest art package, and I'm just not seeing the value in the higher models with the pop up spinner lock/extra multiball. I think all models should be fun to shoot but it's going to come down to rule-set for me. It's about what I expected from a Steve Ritchie game. Solid and fun to shoot, yet unspectacular in artwork and innovation.

I have learned from previous reveals to take it with a grain of salt, I love it and it looks awesome. I have different taste than most and it's all good. Cheers

So you changed your order to the blandest cabinet/translite package ever made? Weird.

#835 1 year ago

I like games where I like the pro the best... much cheaper that way.

#836 1 year ago

before you start hearing the same, it's not the ol pinside is negative about ever new games coming out. Avengers - positive. TMNT - huge pop. JP - positive (art aside). List goes on.

This game is just disappointing (from a introduction standpoint). Even die hard LZ can't be happy with this. I wish my eyes could unsee that LE btw. Damn. Look forward to seeing it play but layout looks, well, blah. Not the worst but I'm spoiled by Keith and others at this point. Can't believe no Stairway. It has to be in there for a wizard mode.....

Topper looks cool - can only imagine how much the will charge.

back to work!

#837 1 year ago

Oh, the humanity, and all the pinsiders screaming around here!

#838 1 year ago

I really like the art on the Pro. Reminds me of the psychedelic album art of my youth. Extremely 70's.

Like someone else said, looks like the shots are ACDC meets AIQ. And, for me, it all comes down to the shots.

I have lots to play at home already, so I'm not in a rush...but I think I see a Pro in my future

Anybody heard of a JD stream coming? Apologies if I missed it.

#839 1 year ago

Is there a magnet in the middle of the pops?

#840 1 year ago

I like how everyone waits in anticipation for a new pin release, and then just vomit all the same complaints as the last 10 releases.

It's a new pin for fuck sake! Try and have fun once in awhile!

#841 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinballer67:

I think he said the reveal stream will be on Facebook, not Twitch. Edit: Verified, per Jack Danger's Facebook post below:

New pinball machine day!!
Just wanna get ahead of this and let you know we’re going to stream this new pin on Facebook. (Announcement date/time coming soon from stern) This will not be streamed on Twitch.
Now, Facebook is notorious for shutting a stream down LIVE when they hear copyrighted content. (And I’m kinda feeling this is gonna happen since the reveal vid just now has been muted by FB) We will then shuffle over to YouTube if need be and cross our fingers.
Then after that we’ll try insta live.
Then periscope.
Then I’ll mail individual screenshots to you.
That or I can just make the audio sound quality poor enough to not trigger the bots, and deal with the massive troll influx saying the game sounds terrible on stream.

#842 1 year ago
Quoted from crujones4life:

Song Progression
Your progress through songs is something unique and something never done in a music game. Each song is divided into “sections” (verse, chorus, solo, bridge, etc.) and each of those sections have their own rules to show which shots are available. If you “finish” a song, it will automatically transition to the next song.
This sounds pretty cool.

Sounds exactly like GnR and not unique at all. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯

I'm with you. The LE artwork might not be as bad as GOT but that color combo is awful. I like the PRO much better.

Yikes.

#844 1 year ago

I’m still trying to understand how now stairway to heaven anywhere?

Imagine GNR with no welcome to the jungle, that’s right you just can’t.

I f’ing hoping stairway or a snippet of stairway is in there somewhere.

#845 1 year ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Can't help wishing this layout was on GnR, for the best of both worlds.
Happy with a pro, as looks like it will play fast, and be pure adrenalin.

And the art package is far better than the LE

18
#846 1 year ago

Well, it’s the typical Ritchie reveal. Looks bare, art is horrible Photoshop drag & drop. Been there, done that, so not shocked. Elvis, 24, AC/DC (remember the FACE?), ST, GOT, SW....c’mon, that’s just how he rolls.

If I ever play it, I’ll prob think it’s super fun...maybe even great.

Who knows!

Enjoy Zep fans, hype-addict NIBNEWBS, & FOMO guinea pigs!!!

But I AM happy with it. YOU aren't. And people were ripping on all those other games you listed as well. Sorry you can't see the other side of it. And btw...Stranger Things is STILL awesome.

#848 1 year ago

All im seeing is a fast looking game with 10 killer songs plus probably 3 wizard mode songs, no filler tracks like all the other music pins. I cant wait for my Pro to show up!

#849 1 year ago

Man this thing is Fugly. All 3. But yeah the LE artwork and trim is the worst. It's so bad they must have intentionally sat around figuring out ways to make it ugly.

#850 1 year ago

Soooo....I hope ya’ll can get your deposits back
