Was curious if the re-run of the Iron Maiden Pro's in July will be identical to the originals released about 3 years ago?

Curious too on what those cost 4 years ago as well and I believe these re-runs will be $5999? or $6199 list price?

Will Stern' make these identical to the same BOM as the originals or can we expect some "cost cutting" techniques based on what Stern has been doing over the past few years?

Or maybe they have added some new and different features to this upcoming run?

No reason to think this is anything other than more of the same?

They will be the same features, but the price will be the current price of games, not the original price of 3 years ago. I love my Iron Maiden Pro, but honestly feature wise there isn't much you could cost cut out of the Pro version that wasn't already removed from the Prem/LE. Maybe standups instead of drops for the lock targets? Not that I want to give them any ideas.

Nitro has 2 in stock for pre-order at $5999: https://nitropinball.com/collections/pinball-machines/products/iron-maiden-legacy-of-the-beast-pro

So even their pre-orders are almost sold out.

Anyone hear anything about ship dates yet? I had heard July, but no specifics. Wondering if the production run has started yet?

I’m curious about this as well. I also have one on order, but figured I’d wait until at least July to check with the distributor. Anyone hear anything yet?

When I placed my order I was told between July and August. Big range.

Interesting. I originally had heard June then it was July. This is the first I am hearing August. Hopefully a few will start showing up for some members and we can confirm that they are actually in production.

What about the Premiums, any news on them?

I don’t think it’s a coincidence that pinballs.com doesn’t have maiden on their site for pre order. Mike told me a few months ago that he didn’t think it was happening.

#11 3 months ago

Someone just posted this on the Up the Irons thread...

Just heard from distrib that IM production was delayed a bit so probably on the line in August

#12 3 months ago

contacted my distributor end of June to get ETA and he said end of July

Sweet! Thanks for the update!

#14 3 months ago

I found a few distros taking pre-orders for Premiums; can I safely assume these are actually getting ran and safe to put a deposit down? Just shot a message to Mike as well at pinballs as he typically has things in stock others can’t get, and that it’s not up on his site, has me a bit worried. Will see what he says.

#15 3 months ago

Reached out to distributor today and was told early August now.

Confirmed they will be running Premiums as well.

#17 3 months ago

Yep, Probably won't be in distribution, until second week of August. Pro and Premium.

I have a premium on order as well

Anyone receive any sort of update on this run?

#20 83 days ago

Distros should have units by the
15th of this month.

#21 79 days ago

Is that confirmed?

#22 78 days ago

I reached out to Zach at flip n out on august 6th to ask for an update, and he said still no word. He said he was told an update to delayed games would come that day. I didn’t hear anything back, so I don’t know if he ever received that update.

#23 78 days ago

I’m told IMDN has been delayed a bit and may end up arriving at distro around Godzilla announcement time. Mind you this is one dealer’s inventory, but they’re a big one.

That sucks,I have a premium that was to be built in this run. I wonder how many they made?Someone else was sure they were on the line. So either they made a small run of pro and premium,or they made none? Wish we knew!

I almost wonder if they didn’t make any yet. I was tossing between putting in a pre-order or waiting for Godzilla and had some back and forth with distributor on best plan of action, like how many he’d get in, when I’d need to get a pre-order in by, etc. It went from “if you want one get the pre-order in pronto” to “as it turns out, you have plenty of time and should be fine. The IMDN machines will be delayed so the rumored Godzilla will probably be out around the same time” with the span of a few days, so a new delay that distros (at least mine) just found out about.

Distributor said prem pushed back til end sept.

Any word on the pros? It’s looks like some may have been produced based on the latest post in the up the irons thread.

Was told pros coming first by end of mo.
Premiums pushed back a bit for parts.

#29 75 days ago

Distributor I have a pro on order from talked to stern yesterday. He said while they didn't rule out sometime this month, they didn't confirm it either.

#30 75 days ago

are there any distributors taking orders on IM?

#32 75 days ago

Keith has to feel good knowing 3 years later, folks are still ordering his first game.

well, it's a good game

#34 75 days ago

Also talk about impulse purchases....I emailed Nitro about their IM availability and they had 1 more for the next run. Deposit down for my first NIB. Hoping for end of August, but we shall see.

#35 74 days ago

I had an Iron Maiden premium ordered as a show game for pickup at SFGE next weekend and just got confirmation that it won’t be built in time. Estimated delay is 3 - 4 weeks so hoping by end of September.

#36 74 days ago

Just put a deposit down yesterday on a Premium. Looking forward to being back in the club!

#37 74 days ago

Sad to confirm, I was just told September as well now for Premium. Given this is 3rd slippage, I don’t have any confidence in this new date. Also was told that build could be reduced as well.

If you guys are disappointed, just imagine how pissed Stern is that the money printing machine is out of ink.

#39 73 days ago

Saw this today.
Even baby yoda wants more maiden!

Still loving my IMDN - for a game that looks sort of underwhelming standing over it - once you hit start it's a homerun - game play, lights, music, call outs A+ all around!!!!!

Now October....and then it will be postponed again until 2022. Wanna bet?

#42 59 days ago

All post-September games will be impacted by the new QR scanner. They'll have to update the build, and code for it. Could be the cause of continued delays.

Presumably KME's team is in crunch time getting their new game ready for September launch, might not have resources to go back and and update Maiden right now.

#43 59 days ago

The new video just posted confirms the launch 7 games AIW, DP, JP, LZ, Mando, and TMNT with the 7th mentioned as "New title coming soon", so there's still a chance. heh.

#44 59 days ago

One thing for sure, no matter when Stern makes these Maidens, they will cost more than what you thought you were paying......

Has anybody heard anything recently? Is it looking like prems will be this month or for sure pushed back to October or later? I've had mine on pre-order since before July and just want it to get to me already.

I’ve had one in order since January-ish…can’t even recall the original date.

I did get an update though: sounds like next week if all goes as planned, which mean stern needs to come through to my distro. I hadn’t heard October but with a new title looming, I’ll remain cautious until delivered fingers crossed

Just picked up my NIB IM PRO yesterday at Little Shop Of Games.
Haven't unboxed it yet.
Should be showing up soon to more dealers if not already.

#49 40 days ago

My pro is scheduled to arrive tomorrow! Unfortunately I’ll be leaving town shortly after and won’t have an opportunity to unbox until late next week.
