Digging “Sword of Rage” instead of “3000”. Nothing against orig or 2k, just think sword of rage is fresher.

I can’t imagine being anymore excited for an “unlicensed” theme.

Quoted from AUKraut:

I wonder how many LE pre-orders have been placed by now????

I know of at least one

Quoted from cooked71:

Living up to your user name at least.

Yeah seriously. Looks awesome.

His/her first ever post? Haha hmm

I’m beyond giddy. How could it look any better?

Quoted from bigdaddy07:

Any word on pricing?

I was told same as MUN

Quoted from JodyG:

I heard Stern was really nervous on how this one would sell. I am thinking it is going to sell decently for them, at least to the enthusiast crowd. I'd love to know the breakdown of percentage sales to operators versus home buyers.

I’m an op and home buyer. I’ll likely buy two so I can have one at home. I expect it to earn well enough yet less than other recently licensed themes like GOTG, DP, IMDN.

Man this is gonna look so freaking cool in various collections that have GOT, MM, and original BK’s

#834 82 days ago
Quoted from HighVoltage:

My initial reaction was "outstanding" and started trying to justify an LE. I've never been an LE buyer, but own and like BK and BK2K, so this might be the one to get me there. Would love to hear if anyone else tries to justify it logically. I tried to quantify it like this...
+$100 Mirrored Backglass
+$100 Art blades
+$100 3-channel amp
+$250 HD glass
+$150 Shaker
+$250 Armor
About $950. Anyone else try this approach and come up with different numbers? Then there's intangibles like exclusivity and artwork preference.
I wish I could consider the pro, but it's not BK without upper playfield in my opinion. I wish they differentiated elsewhere. I think a better way would have been have the full RGB lighting only on premium and LE. Still give the pro an upper playfield, but keep it simple: maybe virtual lock instead of mechanical one.
As I'm analyzing the gameplay I'm starting to question some of the choices.
I really think the upper playfield orbit shot should have a spinner, which would be great to rip. Don't like that pro has 2 spinners and Prem/LE only 1.
There doesn't look like there's any flow-shot to the upper flipper. It would be great if you could chain lower shot into upper orbit path then to upper flipper and directly chain into ripping orbit shots and through a spinner. Maybe the upper transition shots are landing to the upper flipper, but doesn't look certain to me.
I think the VUK to upper playfield would be better behind the mace (or what weapon is BK holding?). As it is, both transition shots to upper playfield are more stop/go with either VUK or mace-block, although you can miss the mace. I just think it would be better if the far outer shot would be an uninterrupted flow shot to the upper playfield. The VUK seems like it would make more sense behind the mace as that's already a potential stop/go shot anyway.
Lightning wheel looks really plain and cheap to me: just some solid colors. It makes me feel like I'm looking at a Sega. That could really use some more sophisticated design or graphic.
Basically, first thought was outstanding and take-my-money but beginning to talk myself out of it or at least take a wait-and-see approach instead.
I do like there's only 600 LEs, should help keep the value better.

Mirror backglass and speck armor look way better in person and are hard to quantify. Your math is fine, it comes down to intangibles. I’m stoked to get an LE on such a macho badass theme. To each their own of course!

And FWIW, I believe this will hold value better than recent LE’s due to it being pinhead-centric.

Quoted from JodyG:

I am not a fan of playfield protectors, but I think I would cut a piece of .020" PET-G for the clear top playfield if I bought a premium. It would be somewhat easy to swap that piece out when it eventually gets dirty, as opposed to polishing or replacing the WPT-esque clear playfield.

Same, you might be on to something

Quoted from JodyG:

Nobody really knows what is under the armor... But a 110 lb bean pole twerp isn't exactly menacing. Apologies to any bean pole twerps reading this thread.

Quoted from jgentry:

Not sure about every release but I have seen GBLE, ASLE, IMDNLE, and DPLE and they have actual screened BG and the mirroring effect is very nice in most cases.

It looks downright awesome on GOTGLE in person with the purple glowing orb. On the other hand doesn’t make nearly as big a difference on DPLE. Predicting based on how they look from pics I think BKSORLE will be more like GOTGLE where the mirroring effect adds a lot of wow factor because all the flames and orange.
