Is it really confirmed yet? Ive been waiting for the announcement. Im either getting a stranger things premium or a star wars comic premium. So itching to see this

#11 1 year ago

Im not a fan of lower playfields and it would be hard to match what the virtual pin version does there. Id rather have more up top and use effects to create the upside down. Id actually like an upper playfield of the livingroom where you light xmas lights to say things. I could kind of be like sword of fury upper playfield. Im guessing itll have a central bash toy of a demigorgon as well.

#19 1 year ago

Im not a huge fan of magnets but would probably fit in this one

#25 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinistarrett:

It should have a Billy mode where you have to “collect” Hawkins Housewives to complete the mode.[quoted image]

Dont think stern will let you “collect” women but i hear you. A cool billy mode is needed. Maybe billy multiball.

#29 1 year ago

They licensed the music and everything fir star wars right? Maybe they will here as well. Though with STrsnger things its a lot of different owners for the music. May be harder.

#90 1 year ago

i loved season 3. was a slow burn but was great. Hoping the pin has aspects of it all.

#111 1 year ago
Quoted from Guinnesstime:

Uh, can we NOT give Ghostbusters to Stern again, please?[quoted image]

I actually really like the recent stern one. I dont own it so dont have the frustrations with code delay. But love playing it on location.

1 week later
#190 1 year ago

How far behind are premiums usually?

#212 1 year ago

I bet it looks great but many will still complain. Ive been waiting to purchase my next pin and am excited to see Stranger Things. Heres hoping it looks great

#234 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

Do you guys ever walk through a store and see something that catches your eye-only because you think it might make a cool pinball mod? Walking through Target the other night I spotted some cool die cast Stranger Things toys: 'Billy's Z28 Camaro' and 'Sheriff Hopper's Chevy Blazer'...[quoted image][quoted image]

Mods are already staring us in the face for this one!

#245 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Supposedly closer to MM and AFM than shadow.
I just hope it has at least three flippers. I’ve never had a third flipper game. Wouldn’t mind this being my first one. Haha

Ha i was hoping for same thing. And a magnet somewhere!

#623 1 year ago

if this game is anything like MM im super pumped. The projection stuff sounds pretty awesome. I want a premium, just dunno if I can wait!

#624 1 year ago
Quoted from robotron:

so what is stranger things abreviation gonna be?
st =star trek
sttng= star trek next gen

I called Eggo a while back. Im sticking to it

#626 1 year ago

if you dont collect eggos in this game im really annoyed!

#637 1 year ago
Quoted from donkadelic:

Honestly I really want this to be good. Attack From Mars is my favorite pin.
But if it is good, it'll be in spite of Stern, not because of them.
Spooky/JJP ask what features they can add. Stern ask what features can we take away.
It's really getting old.

People love to bash stern so much. I think their recent pins have mostly been great. JP, deadpool, batman, etc. i tend to prefer recent sterns over JJP games. Just my preference i know.

#649 1 year ago
Quoted from CyberNinja24:

Agree with everything you just said but you forgot the best one.....
Up The Irons!!

Ive heard its great but havent been able to play it yet. I also love Star Wars(i know not everyone does), Ghostbusters, GoG, star trek..... So I dont really get the hate. I know many dont like them charging more for game features in premium, but they bring the cost of ownership down for the masses with the Pro. So Im on board. Plus sometimes you arent really missing much with the Pro. I really want to get a black knight Pro sometime soon.....After stranger things

edit: forgot walking dead which is awesome....

#694 1 year ago

im hoping of a layout similar to star trek. bask demigorgon in middle with a third flipper on right. that would be cool for me. then again I love Star trek.

#785 1 year ago

Wonder if best to play in dark with the projection. I tend to play with the lights on

#823 1 year ago

every game doesnt need to be the best ever. And Im getting tired of this "rivalry" that seems to be developing with RaM vs Stranger Things(EGGO, sticking to it). I want both RaM and EGGO to be awesome! Im not hoping either fails. Im hoping to buy EGGO and Im not a massive RaM fan(ive seen all the episodes and like it). I just hope both are awesome and get to play both some day. The more companies making good Pins will grow the hobby. I do like that two companies are making games with very current themes. Im 38 and I like a lot of the old games, but Id prefer more new themes. hoping these all turn out great!

#827 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Yep. I hope they are both awesome. Two themes I'm actually excited about. Honestly, I was excited for JP2, but the art kind of put me off...but with everyone saying how good it is, I can't wait to flip it sometime. But I was also really excited about BK3....and well...

I havent played bk3 but all the videos ive seen makes me want one. The theme, music. Just cant speak for the gameplay. I know its hard, but im ok with that

#872 1 year ago

im really hoping I dont have to wait long for a premium.... Does stern always pump out PROs first?

#878 1 year ago
Quoted from cooked71:

So true. The 3 premiums I've bought - TWD, ACDC and DP - have all turned out to be "keepers" and I'm putting that down to not buying on hype, but buying after playing and after code is baked. They've also all been bulletproof out of the box.

I have one real pin so far and its a deadpool premium. Money isnt the issue. My impatience is!

#880 1 year ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

Yes that sucks having to wait but there's really nothing you can do about it. If this is kind of a dream theme I definitely recommend that you wait and get the xtra features. You will be glad that you did.

It is a top theme. Im just really itching to get my next pin as ive convinced my wife! Looking forward to reveal

#959 1 year ago

I really am interested in the premium here. But i play pinball in a fully lit room. I need the light or else I cant see the playfield....

#1012 1 year ago

while this looks great. Im now even more worried Id have to play this in the dark since I play with lights on. Maybe I just need to add pinstadiums to my deadpool to compensate....

#1029 1 year ago
Quoted from manadams:

They were playing it in the dark and some scenes looked washed out.

yea i was thinking the same thing. Wonder how the pro will handle this.. Cant wait for full reveal

#1074 1 year ago
Quoted from Gov:

EGGO or riot!

Been saying this since the beginning! Eggo!

#1260 1 year ago

Ive been waiting fir this reveal to decide on my next pin. Waiting for official stuff monday, but so far im torn. Im glad folks are saying production could last 2 years. Bc im just torn between 3 pins now. This(but worried about my bright room), star wars comic premium, and houdini.

Maybe I just go star wars now and get Stranger things later if i love it. Though theres something fun about getting the game early and learning it alongside everyone else....decisions.....

#1407 1 year ago

wonder if tomorrow is just the official release of this same video, or if more info.....want to see Pro.

#1514 1 year ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Yes. It’s really a non issue for home buyers or almost any location.
People just bored and looking for something to bitch about a usual.

I only have a deadpool premium so far, but i cant play it in dark. Looks cooler, but i cant see the ball well.

#1567 1 year ago

Around what time do we expect a full reveal tomorrow?

#1832 1 year ago

That DnD dice mod is awesome....

#1923 1 year ago

I like the jack danger streams. His videos really helped me get into pinball a few years ago.love his tutorials as well. Looking forward to the stream

#2118 1 year ago

light show looks great. LCD screen seems to be higher quality on this machine than previous sterns. Hearing jackpot constantly in that one mode is annoying, but seems really fun for early code. I may have to get in later in production with mature code. I think I would prefer a pro personally. Cant wait to try on location somewhere.

#2140 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballaddicted:

I do not agree and this is definitely not bad practice. I like when the games come out with early code. Watching the game progress is awesome. Lonnie will do a good job on this game.

deadpool was fun to own and watch progress. Game went from OK to incredible with updates....Will give this game a chance to grow. I agree it can be fun to be along for the ride.

#3005 1 year ago
Quoted from Rum-Z:

Yes. Billy, Escape from the Russians at the carnival/fair, Infiltrate the underground base, Destroy the portal/opening between dimensions. So many lost opportunities that could have been killer modes. Oh well.

I wouldn’t have minded the whole playfield being the mall from season 3. Sam goody loop shot and something with movie theatre.
