Quoted from Hayfarmer:

I wouldn't call lz average , its better than I anticipated. Gnr looks great tho.

I Love Led Zeppelin and the game looks as though it will be fun , but GNR is just over the top .

Quoted from thechakapakuni:

Did you get yours? CE?

Not yet Chaka, thanks for asking brother... my distributor told me in December that it should be here in Canada at the end of February.
I hope that you get your beautiful Guns N’ Roses LE soon Chaka ☝️ ☝️

#2053 8 months ago

Thanks! Sounds like yours is on the way. Post a pic when it arrives. I’m patient (and why I waited) so I’m expecting June. If it comes sooner even better but I have a lot to do around here before then so I’m cool with the wait. Also production issues will hopefully all be resolved by then

That’s truly a good point, I thought about that too with mine

Led Zeppelin LE is an awesome machine!

#2056 8 months ago

Spent the day setting up Led Zepplin and GNR. Both are great games but I can’t stop playing GNR the game is over the top!

This says it all. I do want to play LZ but I know what you mean. GNR keeps you coming back. Like I said back in Oct, game of the year.

#2062 8 months ago

Played GNR le today and Led Zep Pro. GNR was amazing!!! Led Zep not so much! Thinking about buying a GNR for sure.

#2063 8 months ago

I have not been lucky enough to play a GNR sadly. First off I am a huge LZ fan. My wife and I got to play a LZ pro on Thursday. I kept my final opinion till I played one. Was not a fan of the art work but in person I definitely like the playfield much more in person. Only gripe I have are the sling shots. Not at all horrible, but they should have put the hermit or something else there.
I really liked the cabinet art in person on the pro. I definitely prefer it to the premium as of now. Sucks that the art blades and lights are not on the pro. The removable slots on the sides and plain black definitely not all that great looking next to the playfield art.
The music unfortunately was not turned up all that loud at all so can’t really give an opinion on the quality of the tracks. The sound effects when you hit the targets and all really sounded awesome and I loved it. Definitely a surprise for me in person.
Didn’t really get to see the animations while playing and same when my wife was. I was watching her play. I did like the song select screen like a jukebox. The call outs were good but not great. Bland British accent call outs but I watch a lot of BBC so not horrible and I still liked it.
On the pro, the 3rd flipper kinda seems useless to me. Really didn’t add much to the game for me. Sucks the ramp on the premium was removed. Should have been on the pro also.
I had a fair amount of SDTM when launching the ball with the button on the lockdown bar. Had a few also when the ball didn’t have enough power to go up the middle ramp.
It definitely played smooth, not as smooth as butter like EHOH though. The open playfield did not bother me at all like my initial impressions. I loved the flow of the game and the SR openness I worried about was no longer an issue for me, and I have BKSOR premium and I love it.
I didn’t get many long ball playing times unfortunately and that sucks when it’s a buck a game. But first time playing it and I am far from a pro and didn’t have my aim dialed in since I only played it 6 times.
Hitting Icarus was not all that satisfying for me but liked the sound effect when you hit it. Also wish the zeppelin was a physical lock instead of a virtual one, but hitting the ramp to get it was still fun to hit, but not as fun as locking it in the catapult on BKSOR.
At this point I am definitely leaning more to getting LZ, but still not leaning towards NIB and not sure if premium is worth the extra cost since I didn’t get to play one and I prefer the artwork on the pro. And will wait and see what stern does for the EM spinner issue.
I really wanted to love this pin, but at this point I really like it. Not sure if I would have had some buyers remorse TBH if I bought NIB. Possibly some if I am to be honest because I had higher expectations prior to reveal.
I will most likely pick one up used at some point. But for now my deposit for EHOH is going nowhere unless Stern cancels or Godzilla is announced and blows me away.
Just my opinion and for me I give LZ a 7/10 at this point. Not perfect, but pretty good.

Looks like they rotated some games at the Bat. I may have to visit tonight...

Hands down GNR keeps me coming back. It’s my favorite pin right now. Don’t get me wrong Led Zeppelin is good. GNR feels like I’m at a concert part of something special when I play it.
