Gotta be a Kaneda
Hahha it totally is... he's listing a Fix it Felix arcade as well.
Want. It would be much appreciated if you put out a list of materials to do this, cheers!
Pro has the same light show, the rules are the same, I prefer the art, and I can assure you that even though my Death Star doesn't pop open it's just as much of a bitch to destroy haha. This time around I just didn't think Stern made a compelling reason to spend the extra $1800. I'd love to have the hyper loop but I'm still enjoying the heck out it.
Thanks! I think I'm just gonna stick with the clean black, it makes the video pop nicely. Not gonna jam any more toys on it either. If the topper is cool looking and actually interacts and projects stuff on the play field I may have to consider it though
Yup it's the Mezel one, pricey but very nice with the El lighting.
I agree with the single led bulb in the spots, I am not a huge fan of spots and overly bright PFs in general... even ripped them out of my Metallica all together! The single bulbs kept popping out, and the flasher style bulbs don't have that problem. Once I get my hot glue gun back from my buddy I'll put them back in, I actually preferred the warm myself
Anybody with a pro getting really loud weird audio pops during extra ball or replay on .89? It sounds like my speaker is about to explode haha. Didn't happen on .87 or .84., presume it is the fake knocker sound... but it no longer sounds like a knocker. I'll try turning it off in the settings and see if that fixed it.
Gotta get that double scoring going son! It's there, just need to hit the force targets a whole bunch
Just got notice from Stern my replacement playfield is ready to go, so just boxed up my ghosted one this morning and sent her off to Chicago. Fingers crossed the new one plays as great as the old one!
That looks great. Too bad you can’t see it behind the mini LCD unless you’re 8 feet tall
Another vote for the pro. I definitely pony up for premiums when it feels right. Gameplay is identical, pro even has the awesome RGB GI lighting. I think the hyper loop is really cool, and would love to have it... but it does nothing to affect the gameplay. Other plus to me is the Death Star ramp is easier to backhand and there's less stuff to break on the pro
I slapped on a Mezel Mods MF and picked up a premium translite and couldn't be happier. If you're on the fence I highly recommend you play both though!
FYI Stern offered to replace my ghosted pro PF from the very first run. I’ve had the new one in a couple of weeks and it’s really nice. It’s clear coated on both sides, which I’ve not seen on a Stern PF before.
Played at least a hundred plays and not a sliver. On my old one it started after maybe ten games, so it would appear they have resolved the issue. Still have not made it to Jedi multiball yet but getting close!
Just had my best game ever... first time getting to the Emperor, was on my last ball... totally killed him, sweaty palms and all! I don’t think I’ll ever get tired of playing this one
They all seem to lack any kind of darker shading in the details, and are a brighter grey than the falcon. Was disappointed in mine as well, very plastic-y looking.
Finished transitioning my pro artwork to premium. This little guy is still the most played in my collection!
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:
But now what? Is there more to do or experience? What have I possibly missed, if anything?
Do it with the other three characters... if you used stacking, turn it off... after that, do what I did and sell your pro (after finally beating the jerk), pick up a premium, and never get remotely close to making it back
