Quoted from Asylum:

Not so sure about this? I got my AIQ Prem yesterday with a build date of 12/9?

Yup... and I got my Star Wars Comics Premium on Thursday with a build date of Nov 24, 2020.

Quoted from Pdxmonkey:

Magnetic ball lock

If I understood correctly, what's cool is that it can capture the ball and take it away, then when it comes back you are supposed to bash the ball and try to dislodge it. Could be a lot of fun.

The minimalistic, clean art style of the machine fits Led Zeppelin's aesthetic, especially for the era the pin is meant to evoke - a dense, overly stylized design would have been out of place, or at least would have taken the mood of the game into a direction the designers (and possibly the license holders) were obviously not trying to move towards. It has a different artistic tone from most pins, and it's totally fine if you don't like it.

With that said, the most obvious way to show that you don't understand the nature of art is to tell other the way art *must* be. That's not how art works, regardless of medium, and pinball is no exception.

I think it looks like a cool game that oozes Led Zeppeliness and the shots and rules seem great - got an LE coming and I am looking forward to it.

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

Did the stream get killed?

Works fine here

Tim (I think) was just saying that if the stream died for you not to worry... they are recording the whole thing and will upload later.

Well... I think the playfield looks so much richer and fun when combined with the awesome lightshow - all those complementary colors get so saturated and vibrant, everything seems much more detailed than in static pictures. Looks awesome.

Quoted from Psw757:

This is silly to say but the sling shot plastics with no art are even looking good, it’s the lighting and fits the vibe and color package.

It's almost as if these experienced, talented developers knew what they were doing...

I have a GNR LE and I love it - it does things no other game I have played does, such a crazy experience. With that said, GNR is *really* busy on the playfield, and it is never really flowy because there is so much going on. It is also way slower, "heavier" in that way JJP games are. Again, I love it...

This LZ is way faster, much smoother, and in a way more "pure pinball" than the GNR. This seems to apply to their rulesets as well - I guess each style actually fits the respective band really well: 80s glamour vs. 70s intellectualism.

Either way, I am going to love having both in my collection.
