I think this is great news for Pro owners. You'll still be able to add the light show as I hear it's going to be something special. Also, I think it's admirable that Stern isn't holding back the lights on Pros to push Premium sales. A very cool move.

Topper definitely cheaper than I thought it was going to be. Hopefully stern makes a bunch so they don’t sell out immediately for those who are still waiting on purchasing.

#1954 11 months ago

Hell yeah! Love that the lighting can be added to the pro.

#1955 11 months ago
Quoted from TreyBo69:

I wonder if it’ll be a standard option on all game cabinets going forward

Good question- Expression Lighting System could look great on a lot of different games in the future. Can’t wait to see them in action on LZ.

The PinStadium Empire is crumbling lol. Mean old Stern.

Stephen Jensen is the Lead Artist on LZ, with Greg Freres as Art Director.

If you're curious about Mr. Jensen's graphic-arts work, I *believe* this is a gallery of his work.
He's based in IL and, if you look at the image of the would-be fireman's grip about midway down, you can see the same radiating line work that is so evident in the LZ PF.
If I'm wrong, I apologize for the red herring, but it seemed to add up.
His only other pinball Art credit on IPDB is X-Men, with Kevin O'Connor.

If this is true, the PRO's must ship with the channels cut in the interior cabinet sides, a bit like those of STLE. But how do said channels look if they're not covered by the artblades? Sure, the interior sides are painted in the standard satin black, but I would wager those channels are quite visible unless they're plugged.

So $850 is cheap now? It’s a pretty lame effort as usual.

So glad I haven’t been sucked in to this whole topper obsession.

Is there a clip of the topper in action?
Do those searchlights have enough intensity to really dance on my ceiling?
If there were four of them I must justify a $300 sticker.
Sad that they will sell briskly nonetheless.

Same, toppers don't make any sense to me. That's good money that could go to another machine, if I had space.

#1962 11 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

I would just recommend tuning into FB and if it gets shut down bounce over to his YouTube channel. Or sterns.

Unless Stern has some kind of agreement with Facebook i'd be willing to bet they'll shut down the live stream within 3 minutes of game play. i gave up streaming on facebook on any of my music pins because of this. At least on Twitch they let the live stream go and block the VOD.

#1963 11 months ago

When I read “Expressions Lighting” I think of those old whispering Calvin Klein commercials. Must be part of the whole lifestyle brand thing.

Agreed Chuck. I’m very surprised they aren’t doing this on twitch or YouTube from jump.

I honestly was expecting $1500 after seeing it, especially when EHOH topper was $1000 and JP was $699. I thought the LZ license was going to inflate the price north of $1000. Yeah $850 is a lot but cheaper than I was thinking. But I didn’t say $850 is cheap, just cheaper than I was expecting. Don’t put words in my mouth please.

I know that's almost $1K for a topper, come on man!

You can buy a runs good car for $900 how's that for a cargument?

I agree I was prepared for north of 1k.

We are setting the market though by saying we were expecting it to be higher, this shit get seen by those guys and they will push the price elasticity limits.

Personally i would never spend big bucks on any topper. They just seem like a waste of money to me. With that said seeing the video of LZ topper was impressive. I think this is will be a must have for anyone who enjoys toppers on their games.

They are intended for the collector that doesn’t flip their games.

It is what it is but lately I’ve seen some insane resale prices on toppers, 2k for a Kiss topper?

#1972 11 months ago

I dont much care for toppers myself but that one is actually pretty cool and adds something to the game IMO

I’m wondering if the band member symbols are coded in to light individually when you collect them. Not real clear on PF but it is necessary for one of the MB’s.

I am done with toppers. Sold my TWD topper and I am out! Prices got stupid

#1976 11 months ago

How do we watch this stream? It’s on facebook this time? UGH

#1979 11 months ago

Prediction: will be able to connect 4 machines each one acting as a independent instrument.
Player 1 - vocals
Player 2 - Guitar
Player 3 - Bass
Player 4 - Drums

#1980 11 months ago

Integration looks good

#1981 11 months ago
Quoted from Psw757:

Integration looks good

I am digging the animations

#1982 11 months ago

That flow with the light show looks SICK!!! Love the authentic psychedelic vid graphics. The pics did NOT do this pin justice.

#1983 11 months ago

The light show will really be cool in a darkly lit room

#1984 11 months ago
Quoted from pinmister:

Hell yeah, some cool video, animations and vintage tour posters.

Fast fast fast!

#1985 11 months ago

6 multi-ball action looks fun as well

#1986 11 months ago

Mikey wants!

#1987 11 months ago

Looks really fun. Reminds me of ACDC. Steve Ritchie and rock music are made for each other.

Lights look good, flow looks good.

Animations and assets look lame, but won’t affect the fun.

#1988 11 months ago

Loving those opto spinner rips!

#1989 11 months ago

Looks great! So much fun... fast and flowy.

#1990 11 months ago

Super Spinner flipping rips it!

Sacrificed my TWD topper as bait to score a AIQLE. Picking it up tomorrow, can’t wait.

#1992 11 months ago

Timmy!

#1993 11 months ago

I hate the DMCA.

#1994 11 months ago

The sounds of the super spinner are sweet-reminds me a little of tesseract cube and has that synthetic sound that you want to keep going

#1995 11 months ago

Game looks fantastic!! Spinner really rips

#1996 11 months ago

Did the stream get killed?

#1997 11 months ago

I wonder how many LE cancelers are wanting back in. Looks like a great game, can't wait for my pro. Might have to upgrade to premium down the line.
