Still no PFs...ouch.

Quoted from centerflank:

Let me know if you see my GoT premium on the line

Maybe my kids can play test it for you...or better yet...sign the playfield. Make it a 1 true collector item for you.

You're welcome.

Nah,I ordered a premium

#155 3 years ago

Anybody hear anything about st pro on the line? I've been waiting on mine since jan.

#156 3 years ago

I got my TWD Premium last week. It was made late Feb. There's hope still. . . .

I did also,seems like the only thing coming out the factory.....

How does your clear coat look on your playfield? I thought it was the nicest of any stern I have ever bought.

Quoted from rottenrobert1313:

My playfield is dated last year. I'll have to check the month and day again to see (can't remember). So I hope I don't have a defective playfield. Anyway to tell if thats the case? Seemed strange that I had to wait 2 months and it was a playfield issue if mines dated last year. Another strange thing is when my game showed up it had alot of thick dust on top of the box...like the game was sitting for a while somewhere. Not really sure.
I know the thing plays great right out of the box besides two minor things...the left sling switch is set to close (rapid fire) and when the ball goes in the scoop during ball save it kicks another ball into play. So the right out lane switch is also set to close. (game thinks ball drained). So other that its great.

Same here... ball goes in the scoop during ball save kicks another ball into play. Haven't had a chance to diagnose yet, will check the right out lane switch. Thanks for the heads up!

I helped a buddy set up his TWD Pro tonight. It was built February 16th, and I too noted the quality of the clear coat.
Out of the NIB games I've seen straight out of the box it had the smoothest looking playfield I'd seen.

#160 3 years ago

I know the UK supplier has been waiting a while with some orders placed before Christmas. I ordered a TWD Premium just over a week ago so it will be interesting to see how long it takes.

It looks really nice. It's dimpling of course, but you have to expect that with those heavy balls flying about!

A GOT Pro I just got has what looks like a super thick clear on it and looks like glass. I have yet to unbox the TWD pro I picked up. Hoping for thick clear on it. The GOT is dimpling like crazy, but it is expected.

#163 3 years ago

You GoT pro guys are so lucky. I have been waiting since November for mine......ready to give up on my order.

Who did you order through? I ordered mine in November too and got it last month.

Yeah Chuck and I had a bit of a wait but nothing this crazy like you through Trent/Tilt.

I guess this does not bode well for my GOT pro being ready for pickup at the Ohio pinball show :-/

#167 3 years ago
Quoted from rottenrobert1313:

By starting a game and hitting pick targets to light special then one hit to sling and drop ball into mystery scoop. Then a ball would kick into play and the special would be on the display.
Looking into it more I went into switch test and found that the scoop was also making the left pop fire. Seemed like the mystery scoop should have a diode and mine did not. So it was back feeding through other switchs causing the odd behavior. Called stern to verify that a diode should be on the scoop switch and sure enough mine was missing. Stern was awesome to deal with. They have great customer service as far as I'm concerned. They were going to send me a diode and I had some on hand so I just put one in and now the game works as it should. No big deal.

My switch has the diode but the white wire is soldered to the wrong leg, it should be on the unbanded side of the diode. Swapped the wire and everything is fine. Thanks for the heads up!

I actually got my pro on March 9th. I hear they are running along with GB

I read that changing your pinballs out can help with the dimpling.

How's that?

No, but it can help prevent wear on the pf.

#172 3 years ago

I read and was told by many that the balls provided by stern are junk.

Easy, order these. Guaranteed not to dimple!

They are but it won't matter with dimpling. All balls will dimple a playfield you change them out to prevent wear.

What's the build date on your game? Just curious.

#176 3 years ago

The balls that come from Stern are in a anti moisture bag and look like shit when first taking them out. I clean them with rubbing achl, and wax them just like the ones I buy from PBL and they look exactly the same and perform the same on location as the standard balls bought from PBL. The 'Stern pinballs are garbage' is a common thought on this site, but is not correct. I bet I could post a pic of each and you wouldn't be able to tell which is which.

I need to see both set of your balls with my own eyes

Iv'e yet to see or hear about any Met Pro's off the line so far this year, but many premiums being made. Anyone got a Pro with this years production date?

#181 3 years ago

I heard that they're running SMVE(which is about done) and GBLE then Met Pro

#182 3 years ago

I have a pro on order and could of picked it up, but passed on it until the next run which is supposed to be at the end of April.

#183 3 years ago

I just checked and my build date was 03/07/16.

It was shipped on the 8th and delivered on the 9th.

Stern's video yesterday showed GB Pro, ST, GoT, TWD, MET, and SMVE all on the line. There were even a few WWEs. Looks like a little bit of everything is going right now alongside a ton of GBs. All GBs were pro, however.

#186 3 years ago

Only saw one Met Premium in that video.

Ah, really? I didn't look close enough I guess. I was obsessed with trying to spot a GB LE on the line. None that I could see.
