Has anyone heard why there is a delay from stern on producing the Metallica pro? I have contacted the dealer and I have also tried contacting stern and nobody has the definitive answer at this time. I am now hearing it will be toward the end of the month which will be over a month since I ordered mine.

Been waiting on my GOT for 2 months...looks like they're rolling on it though. I know they had some issue with their parts suppliers...don't know if it was defined to a certain(t) machine or all of them.

I ordered my Met Pro in November. It just left the factory yesterday. Hope you gets yours soon the wait was KILLING me hah.

#4 3 years ago

I ordered my GOT and had in a week. I ordered an Ironman and waited 2 months, then gave up on it. Waiting now for Spidey!

One whole month of waiting? Ouch.

Let us know if there is anything we can do to make your wait more comfortable.

#8 3 years ago

Paid for my GOT in November. It arrived at the distro this morning. I'll be getting my game Friday. Woo hoo!

My guess is the cabinet company couldn't keep up with sterns orders and that had a ripple effect.

They said a possible playfield issue.

What are you going to do for the other 23 hrs and 56 mins in the day?

#15 3 years ago

There was a hell of a deal here on the forums of a fellow selling a NIB with shaker motor from the 2013 run for like 4350.00. That was a great one to jump on with the wooden head too.

Don't know about that one specifically, but supposedly that move to the new building has really messed up their timelines and overall organization. Growing pains, I guess, but at least they're growing.

I was going to get a pro and was told last month that mid February was when they would be available. Things have changed since and can't pull the trigger. Just be patient. They are coming but might be the last run. Hopefully, Stern will keep making them for a while longer but sounds like it's near the end.

#19 3 years ago

The people waiting on GOT, is that the premium?

#20 3 years ago

Just picked up GOT pro yesterday, was told MET and Kiss will be shipping soon and WD pro will be March

From what I understand this will be the last of the Metallica run. The license was supposed to run out but got extended for one more run.

I just ordered one last month and I am feeling just as impatient. Just excited, as we really don't have anything to bitch about. I am glad I ordered one before they are no longer in production. What did you hear was wrong with the playfields?

#26 3 years ago

Stern waits are in weeks. JJP's in years. Any questions

I didn't really get much in details but I guess a run on October of last year the playfields were junk and after about 200 plays they were already showing wear especially around sparky and the scoop. Mind you that's just speculations. I did see on Stern's Facebook that they are producing them right now so that's a good sign.

That better not be accurate because the distro I bought my TWD from said 2-3 weeks tops. That was 8 days ago. I guess I'll just have to wait if this ends up being true

This is Stern. "The last run" means that this is the last run before the next run. The run of Metallica before this was the last run. The stopping early was the last run. At some point there actually will be a last run... Unless they do another.

And it's all good. If they are still selling well, they will still make them.

Just got the call, my twd is shipping from stern Monday morning. Woohoo it's been a long wait, but atleast it'll arrive with proper code.

Whats in Feb. I was told ST pro at the end of the month . Can anyone back this up.

#44 3 years ago

I would love to know if spidey is going to get made anytime soon or not!

#45 3 years ago

I doubt they even sold many Spider Vaults.

Sounds like they are going to announce Ghostbusters this month, and production starts in April.
