Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Looks like a Game of Thrones flipped on it's axis... especially the lower playfield. I heard a rumor that GOT was originally going to be BK3K back in the day. I really like the game of thrones layout. This looks awesome!

I agree on the GoT comparison. Plus, finally some decent art from Richie. This game looks a lot better.

The Coast to Coast episode 250 podcast with Steve Richie covers the topper, starting around 5:45. Richie said that it's going to be the best topper ever, with articulated robotic movement. He said it'll be a Black Knight head that can turn left, right, and up and down in order to laugh and shake its head NO to taunt the player a little bit. It sounds like it'll be something even better than the AFMr topper.

Hmm, maybe the balls are being made softer so as not to dimple the playfields anymore.

Premium, not LE

They said LE a few minutes ago in the stream. Edit: Beat me to it.

That Bernie character on the display is so cool! I like those two skeletons on his shoulder pumping the bellows as he shoots his flamethrower.

Quoted from thirdedition:

The monsters to me scream D&D and World of Warcraft. I'm not picking up on the horror of scifi vibe that you are getting.

The modes and theme, minus Sandworm, remind me a little of the Lord of the Rings movies and quest to get to that volcano.

Quoted from Hazoff:

Like this, The pro isn't missing out big time. I don't like upper pf's never have and most likely never will. I do however love spinners so take away the upper PF and add a spinner? I'm buying a pro.

Definitely! I'm probably going to buy a Pro as well.

Quoted from Graysonsdad:

Do you like to drink wine in the bathtub? Do you cut the eyes out of pictures of your ex? Do you like to cut yourself while watching Twilight?
That kind of music.

I agree. I almost went blind watching the last Superbowl halftime performance. Back to Black Knight, I imagine that the amazing mod makers in our community are going to have some cool stuff to fix up that barren Pro model. I'm counting on them.

Quoted from Asael:

I am still on the fence to buy a premium, but STERN is way too quiet about this game. There is still no information about in what direction this game will go. Will we see more modes, more monsters in it or is what it has now, all we will get and they just do a few bugfixes and this is the game? Everything I saw so far from this game is good but I just don't think it has enough content. In my opinion games like Iron Maiden are perfect with the content they have. Shortgoal gameplay and long goals to keep it interesting. If I count the modes and MBs in other STERN games like Iron Maiden or SW and than look what BK has so far. I can't pull the trigger and buy it now. I know that some STERN games took along time until the code was in a good shape but most times they talked in interviews or through insiders about the features that would come. So normaly I was relative early sure about buying a game. Is it just my feeling or is the hype about this game already over before it realy started? With Iron Maiden, Keith was everywhere: tilforum, streams, podcasts, interviews.....talking about the features what we will see in future updates and I knew excactly what game I will get when I ordered it. What is the direction they are trying to go with this game, will it be shallow but addictive like in the 80' just with LCD and LEDs. Or will it also have modern rules and enough content like other games now have?

I’m hoping this is another Iron Man type of game. Not particularly deep, but fast and furious for those quick games and wanting to hit the start button over and over.

Given the opportunities for mods, I'm surprised that I haven't read about some ideas so far. Surely, the modsters have been in their secret lairs for weeks now.

Quoted from HOOKED:

We have flipper toppers in the pipeline already cast metal ornamental finishes that we are known for.
Pops we have two designs unsure which to go with.
What do you think? Maybe a nod to the old school or dress up the treasure room under world?
Army of the dead now that would be a great space filler if done right.
Our Pro showed up early and the Le should be here early June.
Super fast pro just needs window dressing to complement game play.
Wonder how many pros have sold?

I'm still waiting for my Pro to arrive, so I figure there must have been a lot of people with orders in front of mine. I keep reading about how naked the upper playfield is on the Pro, so maybe there's room for something up there, maybe a medieval structure or something, providing that it doesn't block view of the ball movement too much.
