In for the LE, my first NIB, and excited as all get out.
I've seen several people say they've ordered a shaker motor for their SW, but do we have any confirmation it's supported? I mean, it's not coming standard on any model, which is a departure from previous LEs.
I get that Spike supports it, but that doesn't mean code will be written for it.
Considering the LE is largely sold out at most distributors, it seems unlikely they'll bother jazzing it up much. I mean, I'm in for an LE, so please Stern jazz away, but it doesn't make a lot of business sense.
I could potentially see them doing something that impacts both the Premium and LE, since premiums will be available new for years.
Just got the call. My LE is on the truck...half way across the country. But at least it's on its way.
Anybody know anything about Road Runner Transportation Systems? They're the carrier for my LE, but I've never worked with them before.
Quoted from beelzeboob:
I don't know you, but I hate you.
Actually, I was supposed to get it Tuesday, but I'm away. So the 28th is delivery day for me.
Well, after a couple days of shipping screw ups, looks like you'll get yours first after all. They're currently predicting then 29th.
Okay, it's sitting in my garage. Trying to find some guys to help me get it inside and up the stairs.
Well, rented an escalara and got the LE into the house. Already late for work, so I'll tackle the stairs tonight.
LE 440 is finally setup. Got a couple games in tonight, but I need to get up super early in the morning (stupid job), so tomorrow will be the late night of leveling, updating software, checking out everything in the menus, and playing the crap out of it.
And yes, it's currently in our bedroom, but only because it's permanent home is under construction.
Been a crazy weekend, but I finally got the machine leveled up, everything tested, and a few games in (let the kids play a few games, too).
This thing is fast, and I'm not the greatest player. My ball-fu needs to improve dramatically. It's a sad commentary when my 4 year old knocked off my high score.
It's fun and immersive. The inner loop is a serious SDTM shot. I hit the hyperspace hurry up once and that was an extremely satisfying shot.
When our remodel is done, and I have an honest to god rec room, I'll have room for 3-4 games and I'm certain SWLE will be a long term member of that line up, if only because it will take me years to see the Death Star blow up outside of the service menu.
Yeah. I’m seeing the ball pop out more often than not now. Very frustrating, since I’m not the greatest player and don’t hit the shot as often as I’d like.
I’ve seen a couple comments about a service bulletin, but I can’t seem to find it. Come someone point me in the right direction?
Quoted from OnTheSnap:
About to buy our very first pin - sw premium. We don’t have any pin history and will likely be a one pin collection. Our family has a 5 and 9 year old. I think they will like it, and I’m certainly excited about it.
My 5 & 7 yo girls love it, and they’re not into pinball or Star Wars (and they’re only just starting to get into video games).
