I actually just subscribed as I ordered my first Pin after 20 yrs of pinball coma and went for an STLE, having always liked Star Trek and watching through various videos the ball flow outcome from Richie's design. So now I will have to suffer a loooong wait until end of January for delivery.
What I could not find any comments about from current owners is:
- how the shaker spins during what gameplay. Being called Warp Core Resonator Shaker Motor maybe during Warp loops?
- is there any extra protection coating on the playfield being an LE? I saw recently a Metallica PRO in a bar nearby and it's surface was really consumed all over after just a few months, so that scares me.
- Any hi-res pics of the table and playfield showing the new VUK design instead of that horrible early design that pulls the ball in the warp loop. Thank god the changed their mind btw
