I am so excited about this game. I can't wait!

#8802 10 months ago
Quoted from coasterguy:

Page 165
Just remove the 2 spacers. Then when you tighten the screws leave some space and you would have both
Normal shots made and demo movement still.

I tried. For three hours using every fix in this thread. I think mine was extra relaxed. I’m fine with where I’m at though because making that shot just makes this game so much better. Played 4 games and hit it 3 or 4 times which was more than I had total in a couple months of play.

You should be because it’s a fantastic game.

Quoted from MJK-911:

With now knowing all these issues with this game, would you still purchase one? My Premium arrives next week, praying it’s not more trouble than its worth!!

It’s 100% worth it. It’s pinball, they all need tweaks and fine tuning some more than others. And it seems the more innovative they become the more the glass comes off for attention. There’s a good chance your game will be perfect out of the box, if not this is one of the better club threads on Pinside for help.

#8804 10 months ago
Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

Why was the topper release delayed so much? Poor initial reaction to the game and sales?

They can’t release it or even promotional materials without explicit sign off and consent from Netflix for each thing.

Netflix doesn’t give consent/sign off until their lawyers and several other departments review and sign off.

#8805 10 months ago

$666 and not a penny more.

Edit: I see the logic of having 11 in there somewhere. So, $666.11. The battle for Hawkins summed up in one topper price.

#8806 10 months ago

Topper price guess $499

#8807 10 months ago

I am going $799.99 for the topper!

#8808 10 months ago

Topper: $600.11
I mean, it has to have an eleven in there somewhere right?

#8809 10 months ago

Finally officially joined the club! Pin looks so much better in person.

Damn that took forever. Zeppelin topper came out for preorder soon after game went up for preorder and shipped.

Congrats! I got a pro and still love it. Favorite pin in my collection for the family, at least till Elvira arrives.

Star Wars took like 4 years.

#8813 10 months ago

Finished my pf swap...just a little opto issue to fix. Really happy with it now!

I'd love to be able to buy that translite!

#8816 10 months ago

Dude! That looks incredible all around. Nice work! Some of you guys blow my mind with how you can customize a machine.

#8818 10 months ago

The new phone books are here!

#8819 10 months ago

I would like to amend my guess for the topper price to $99

#8820 10 months ago

Well, I like the topper. Gonna order it depending on the price.

#8821 10 months ago
Quoted from theadicts77:

Better bend over and grab your ankles. No moving parts and all flat plastic...it'll be at least $699.

And I like it, too!

#8822 10 months ago

650

#8823 10 months ago

$1 Bob.

#8824 10 months ago

I will wait until stern confirms price, but Flip n out just told me it’s 649 plus shipping. I’ll count every guess before my video post.

#8825 10 months ago

Grabbing mine. It’s different enough. Looks neat. I mean, I wasn’t expecting BKSOR.

#8826 10 months ago

Topper price guess is $1,099.

#8827 10 months ago

I like it, but not $650 like it

#8828 10 months ago

Here’s are winner if the price holds at $649

#8829 10 months ago

I like it, something different and looks like Demogorgons from the disco pinball dimension!
Reserved one at my distributor, if import taxes are gone price should be around 820 Euro here in Germany.

#8830 10 months ago

I like the topper, at the old topper prices of $399. I also like the Jurassic Park and Avengers toppers, just not at the prices Stern charges now. I also like keeping money in the bank, so it all works out.

#8831 10 months ago

Topper price as is will be $649. After shipments start it will be announced that for $279 you can change out all of the plastic and the LEDs and have it UV-enabled. So really $928.

#8832 10 months ago

Topper is different. Not BKsor caliber....Also waiting for price from my distributor. He Said trying to reach out to Stern for confirmed price. I will probably order it.

#8833 10 months ago

My associate just got a pro and tried adding one of his Pinstadium sets that he already had.
The primary goal is for the UV effect in the Upside Down, but since it's hooked into the GI, it turns off when that mode starts.

Is there a way to get it to turn on during that mode or is the only real option to get the special Things Edition Pinstadium kit or Stern kit?

Thanks!

Just get the Stern Kit. You get new plastics and a new apron.

There is a setting to turn on if you have UV kit, just not sure if that works with pin stadiums.

The UV flashers need to be connected to one of the UV GI bulbs. Just follow the instructions on their site. It applies to regular version pinstadiums. However, the "UV" on the regular pinstadiums don't light up the UV ink on the pf. I tried. You would need to get the special version or just buy the Stern kit.

All that does is completely turn off the white GI

#8838 10 months ago

Not gonna lie. A little disappointed on the topper.

#8839 10 months ago

Topper looks cooler than I was expecting.

#8840 10 months ago

I don't think it matters what they put out as a topper. Every owner's thread is the same. Topper comes out, pinsiders get all up in arms about how disappointed they are and how it's way too expensive for what it is. Always.

Stern puts out standard shaped toppers with blinking lights for most of their games with a few exceptions (EHOH, BKSOR). They are all priced similarly too. It's not like it's a total surprise... And while most owners love their STh (I know I do), let's face it, it's not the most popular offering out there. There's a bunch sitting in distros warehouses. They aren't selling well. At least we have a topper for those who like them!

Stern could put a friggin demodog that comes out of the topper and jumps on the pf glass and folks would still complain.. "whaddya mean it doesn't REALLY attack players?"

Topper fans will buy, as usual. Ppl that wouldn't normally buy a topper won't, as usual.

Personally I like that they went with something we hadn't seen yet - the infinity lighting. It's appropriate for the theme. Seeing into another dimension.

#8841 10 months ago

I will reluctantly be buying it but I'm not happy.

#8842 10 months ago

I ordered the new topper but wish they put figures inside instead of plexi pics. Hope it looks better in person. I don’t know yet.

This should be pinside’s motto.

#8844 10 months ago

The only thing that doesn't make sense is the cartoon Demogorgons. I dont dislike it, it's just not the same type of art as the rest of the machine.

#8845 10 months ago

This topper is way more interesting than both turtles and Led Zeppelin and cheaper than both. I ordered one (i still think its too expensive) but so is everything pinball related.

where do I buy that trans lite?

#8847 10 months ago

I mentioned about UV lighting, do I win anything Chuck??
The demagorgans look like they were made by laseriffic. Not a fan. Too cartoony for a pin with photorealistic artwork. Don’t hate it but not thrilled.

#8848 10 months ago

It has UV lighting in it? I didn’t see any. Plus that wasn’t the contest.

I agree...great concept, but WTF were they thinking with that art style? It took me awhile to figure out what I was even looking at. It doesn't "read well" at all, and looks out of place with the rest of the art. Very strange decision.
