Quoted from PBINTHESOUTH:

Who is Tim Sexton?

Stern Programmer, high level player, and all around good guy.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I’m talking about LEs that distros get. They all get specific allotments.

I would hope they go out of their way to deliver on LEs but not everyone is ordering an LE .

If I had a pro or premium on order I wouldnt hold my breath.

#303 11 months ago

Whether it’s delayed or not, everyone I’ve ever heard of that has ordered a Stern game, they’ve received it. Except delays until they are allowed to produce at full capacity again.

Im not saying they dont deliver eventually but at the moment you have people who ordered games months ago still waiting.

The last run of Elviras left lots people who had one "on order with their dealer" hanging.

Went from you'll have your game in Oct to now maybe March.

It’s almost like if you don’t order a game during its first run when it is the primary thing on the line you have to wait until space on the line opens up...

#306 11 months ago

Merry Blurry Pictures Eve!! Have you all been good boys and girls???

#307 11 months ago

Order a game when it’s in stock. No waiting.

#308 11 months ago

I just can’t imagine putting a ton of money down on something and not know anything about it other than it’s going to be a Led Zeppelin pin.

Well thats what I do... unfortunately that means Ill have to wait and see if they can produce enough LZ to go around.

I kinda doubt it based on the last year or so.

No way in hell I am pre-paying or any of that bullshit.

Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

That’s just the game If you want an LE. You have plenty of time to order after reveal if you’re getting a pro or pre and still be on the first run.

#311 11 months ago

Complaining about sterns ability to pump out games is absolutely laughable. You’re new here so I understand that you don’t understand but you’re out of your depth.

You’ll have YEARS to buy a LZ NIB.

#313 11 months ago

Once you get passed the highly manufactured LE fear of missing out, it’s just another release.

LEs will be available, just not right now. Stern LEs are just to unpredictable for me to put down cash unseen. I’m usually looking 2-3 releases back and have been quite happy with availability of models to choose from.

Where's that confounded Multiball?

This is what I heard

I just keep envisioning pushing the start button and the intro to Achilles last stand hits

Really, 3 flippers, no upper PF, likely Steve’s opus as rumor is he is retiring. Game will be awesome.

I know that’s for the LE, but I still could not buy anything without seeing it regardless especially for something that will cost thousands of dollars nearing $10k and end up for sale “Like new with only 20 plays.”

How many had to google opus? I did lol

#320 11 months ago

A friend styled me out with an LE - a whole box of them! (Her kid didn’t like the flavor, but hey it’s practically NIB.)

Maybe I can convince them to do the same thing with a LZLE?

Can’t believe nothing has leaked over the weekend, something always leaks out.

No Pics, no idea on artist, no rumors on game features.

Keeping it pretty tight lipped.

#322 11 months ago

Surely psychedelic crop circles make the art

Yep. Need Franchi back. He was always nice and leaky.

Led Zep with Dirty Donny art?

Stern should just drip drip drip all weekend long to keep pumping the hype, nothing major but some sort of small details.

Keep the teasing going since everyone is foaming at the mouth.

Quoted from pinster68:

Trent emailed me at 10am today that he’s sold out. Cointaker Melissa emailed me earlier the same...

How can they take orders without the game being officially launched? I reached out to my distro last week and was told to wait until official release? This is the same distro who got me a GnR CE, so I have faith.

#327 11 months ago

You can get on an interested list until official announcement.

It was announced on Friday and dealers started taking deposits right after.

I heard it's a bit of a dud. I have little to no faith in Ritchie making a solid game. Which sucks, since I'm a big fan of the band.

A dud in what way?

TBD, I guess. I think the person's point was boring/unimaginative.

If you're hearing feedback then give some more detail ... layout, art, etc.

so its going to be a home edition?

#340 11 months ago

Why the F would I make this up? I don't want this game to suck. Ignore me if you think it's BS. We'll see on Tuesday.

The same reason Rick and Morty sold out without actual gameplay; all about the money.

So far we’ve “heard “ that “it sucks”. “ it’s a dud”. “ it’s a repackaged black knight “. “ it’s Steve’s best game to date “. “It’s essentially Quicksilver”. “ it’s not happening “. any others I forgot ?

I think you covered it pretty well, all said with nothing to back it up.

Ya. It won't compare to gnr is a popular comment. I could care less about gnr!

#345 11 months ago

Do you guys think this outsells GnR just due to the fact that Stern will out-Produce JJP?

I will probably buy one because music themes do well for us but to add to the common stern quotes:

"box of lights" "if only JJP would have made it" "why not another band" "its going to offer a comic book edition" "the playfield will just dimple when i look at it"

#348 11 months ago

It would have to be reaalllllly bad at this point for me to not buy it . I’ve already made a spot for it. A buddy of mine got me pumped about the potential of this game when it was just a rumor. I’ve probably pissed him off as I’ve been texting him non stop about ideas that should be in the game. Which is surprising because he’s an even bigger fan than I am.
Ever since it was announced , there’s just been this weird voice in my head saying “ so you better lay your money downnnnnnnnnnnnnnn”

#349 11 months ago
Quoted from Tomass:

Do you guys think this outsells GnR just due to the fact that Stern will out-Produce JJP?

Not necessarily. Stern releases 4+ games per year. JJP typically does one. If JJP only makes GNR until expo 2021 they will have a lot out there.

#350 11 months ago

Rumor is Mothership is used for the songs. I heard it plays fun as hell and has three flippers without an upper pf and lots of ramps.

Heard they gave him a little extra budget as they want to sell it for years to come. We shall see.
