Quoted from imagamejunky:

SWEET!
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

I’m usually not one for wild shooter rods, but that Stern one is awesome. Well done!

#4555 1 year ago

Anyone have the Stern side rail armor installed? I can’t seem to find any pics here or on Google

#4575 1 year ago
Quoted from gambit3113:

Still not out yet.

Quoted from blowback1976:

Still waiting, they don't seem to be out yet. Just images of what they look like.

Gotcha, thanks guys. I was on the Stern Shop before and they look like they’re available for purchase so it through me off. Probably a take your money now and ship it to you in 3 months situation.

#4675 1 year ago

Let’s put it this way, I ordered the Mezel arcade sign and the Stern shooter on the 4th of July and I don’t even own the game yet. I don’t want to get screwed with discontinued mods like I have in the past. Those are two of the best I’ve seen in some time (UV light kit too).

#4682 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Yeah I’m not a mod person either, but these have been great. The shooter rod is a good shape (hate heads and sharp objects), uV is obviously awesome), and the arcade sign seems very well built.
No rush for me, but the reviews are greatly appreciated.

Couldn’t agree more on the “shape” of the rod. Can’t stand the heads and ones that want to murder your hand. This one is just right. Shape, theme, integration. Love it.

#4683 1 year ago

Anyone have an installed pic of the Mezel arcade sign from the players point of view? I don’t think I’ve seen that yet.

#4694 1 year ago
Quoted from gambit3113:

Note that the Mezel sign mounts on the opposite side of the PF as the Lermods sign does. Lermods’ appears to mount on top of the ramp guard on the top left. Mezel’s has a 3D printed bracket that allows it to sit down into the dead space of the left ramp loop.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

That is such a perfect spot for it. Obstructs nothing like everyone said. Should have been there from the factory. Thanks for the pics!

#4702 1 year ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

Does anybody have the speaker lights kit that looks like Christmas lights around the panel? And if so can someone post a video of it?

Yes, I would love to see a video of this too.

#4704 1 year ago

That is perfect. You are the man, thank you!

Quoted from tk375:

I Bullshit is way too short in my opinion but it's cool. I would love to hear "Should I stay or should I go" by Clash.

I second that. That song was a huge part of season 1 and was also referenced in season 2. It’s the defining song of the show behind the iconic theme IMO.

#4848 1 year ago
Quoted from BillyPilgrim:

I picked one up a few weeks ago from Cointaker.

Same. They were in stock there as of July 5th.

#4853 1 year ago

Game’s not even that old yet and the projection stickers need replacing? The goodie bag won’t be enough for the long haul, I hope Stern sells them or another solution arises.

#4857 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

1200 plays on mine and they show no signs of physical wear.

That makes me feel better, thanks.

#4918 1 year ago
Quoted from tk375:

Not sure if there are videos of the Stranger Things Shooter rod but I just installed mine and cannot be happier. I love the interaction with the Upside Down.
Hope you guys enjoy!

That looks so sweet. Thanks for sharing!

#4965 1 year ago

That translite is dope. Total upgrade over stock.

#4974 1 year ago
Quoted from imagamejunky:

Just my opinions...
I wouldn't do that deal. You've probably got over 6k in your pro, right? That's 11k for a game that'll be worth 8k as soon as you open it.
Sell yours for 5ish and add 3 to buy a used LE or a NIB Premium.

Quoted from PinMonk:

FOR SURE. NIB experience ain't worth $3k. Sell yours for $5400, add $2.7-3k, get a nice HUO LE and pocket $2k or more for your next pin.
I'd also take any mods on your Pro that would work on the LE off. They're not going to change the value of the Pro that much and will still be useful to you on the LE since you like them.

What these guys said.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

All the kids on bikes looking off into the sunset. No mind flayer until you hit the upside down, then the topper gets blast with UV and reveals the mind flayer along with changing all the other artwork.
Also have it integrated with other light shows in the game too.

All the YES

Quoted from tk375:

Well, Stranger Things will have a 5th season after all.
"Stranger Things is not going anywhere anytime soon—other than Russia, of course.
While Matt and Ross Duffer, the creators of the Netflix drama, have previously guessed that they might say goodbye to the hit show after four seasons, they confirmed in a new interview that season four will not be the end for the kids of Hawkins, Indiana.
"Season four won't be the end," Ross Duffer told The Hollywood Reporter. "We know what the end is, and we know when it is. [The pandemic] has given us time to look ahead, figure out what is best for the show. Starting to fill that out gave us a better idea of how long we need to tell that story."
In even more good news, Matt confirmed that all of the season four scripts are ready to go.
"For the first time, we have all the scripts written and we're able to look at it as a whole piece and make adjustments," he said. "

#5204 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballslave:

One mod that's on the game I'm planning to get is this... anyone familiar with it? Does that screen have a moving image on it?[quoted image]

Yes it’s one of the mini arcade keychains that you can actually play Dig Dug on. It’s been modified to loop the attract mode during the Quarter Hunt mode, or you can have it always be on (I think)

Video here:

#5218 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballslave:

I'll find out when the game turns up, and decide if I want to keep it. Lots of other cool mods available for this game also I see... Jim's car looks excellent!

You want cool mods for this game, get the Stern UV kit, the Stern shooter rod, and Mezel Mods spinning arcade sign. Those will knock your socks off.

#5232 1 year ago
Quoted from Trindawg:

So I ordered the shooter lane protector for my machine from mezel mods. Anyone else out there have one installed ? I’m starting to notice the slightest bit of Wear on my shooter lane and don’t want it to get worse.

Have one on my IM. Fits great and I think will hold up over time.

#5235 1 year ago
Quoted from Makarov:

Do you guys recommend any particular brand of ball? I figure I'll order some so I'll be able to replace the balls when they start looking rough
My family is loving this game

People love Ball Baron

#5239 1 year ago
Quoted from C0untDeM0net:

I've been buying from Ball Baron. They have been great. I've never used the Titan pinballs but I highly recommend if you buy from them you get the glow in the dark flipper bat rubbers and slingshot rubbers. They look awesome with the UV Kit.

Yes, the Titan glow in the dark rubbers are an absolute must with this game and the UV kit.

Quoted from Powerhouse47:

Where are the glow in the dark bats? Wonder if Uv kit makes it glow too

Titan Pinball sells them. Not bats, just the rubbers that go around them.

#5255 1 year ago

Does anyone know how long Stern typically keeps a game on the line (outside of Vaults) before retiring it? 3-4 years? If that’s the case, how long does STh have left?

I finally played a pro for the first time the other night and I thoroughly enjoyed it. It confirmed my desire to add a premium to my lineup one day. I feel like Stern ends the production of premiums well before pros so I don’t want to miss out, as used premiums for any Stern title seem to come up for sale less often than pros and LE’s for some reason.

#5257 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

I’d ask a distro but it depends. If a game isn’t selling well I bet they stop sooner. Maybe a year or 2? This game definitely isn’t selling well so I wouldn’t wait years. It will be a year this Christmas time.

Thank you Chuck, that is exactly the kind of info I was looking for. I was planning on making this next summers purchase. Sounds like I have a little time. I’ll ask my distributor as well and get his take.

#5263 1 year ago
Quoted from NeilMcRae:

Gary said at an expo a few years ago that most license deals are for three years but many of them are extendable.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

you will be able to get one for sure.

I appreciate the feedback, thank you!

I played this game again a couple days ago and there was a constant line to get to it. Only pin I had to wait for. Other pins were getting played but not at the frequency of STh. Other pins were Munsters, Ghostbusters, Spider-Man, Aerosmith (not working), Star Wars (Stern), KISS, Simpson’s Pinball Party, Theater of Magic, Medieval Madness, Monster Bash, Monopoly, Pirates of the Caribbean (Stern), Family Guy.

Could just be the fact that it was the newest game there and played like a new game, but I really enjoyed my time with it again. Can’t wait to add it to the lineup.

#5316 1 year ago
Quoted from Powerhouse47:

What flipper rubbers you have from stream? Look neon?

I believe they’re glow in the dark (GITD) from Titan. The UV light really sets them off.

#5339 1 year ago
Quoted from imagamejunky:

Any of you guys buy the mezel mods spinning arcade sign and install it on a premium/le?
I don't like how it's blocking the view of the TK ball lock. If any of you have installed it and you feel like it's not blocking the TK ball lock would you please post a picture or a comment?
I'd like to be able to install that sign on the right hand side of the machine preferably.
Thanks

You can only install it on the left unless you design a custom bracket for it elsewhere. Looks great on the left IMO, and it’s tight but doesn’t appear to block the view of the TK lock. See post below for images:

#5351 1 year ago
Quoted from Wallofnoise:

Just saw Zombie Yeti’s Stern Army Hopper Art and that got me thinking how awesome it would be if Stranger Things (Premium) gets a Zombie Yeti art pass in conjunction with season 4 of the show. Similar to the Star Wars Comic Art pin. Great opportunity for Stern to capitalize on the renewed fan interest.
[quoted image]

Would be cool for sure, but I would be surprised if it happens. The game is not selling well, unfortunately.

#5354 1 year ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

That's everybody else's loss...it's an amazing game. And I think the art is already terrific. (Although it would have been great if they used that picture of the four kids on the bike on the road in front of the mind flayer!)

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Yeah that’s a great image. I hope they do that for the topper.

Agreed on both points. I really hope they replicate that image for the topper too.

#5377 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

Gonna stream .98 and Cleland tonight. Probably around 8 eastern. delt31 come check it out. I’ll have the sound cranked.
View will look like this. My first dabble into green screens. [quoted image]

Just watched the first ten minutes, will finish the rest when I have more time. First off, that camera angle rocks, especially for this game due to the projector. I’ve never had a chance to play a premium/LE in person so seeing how the projector mapping works during gameplay through all different modes is cool as shit. Little things like the stand up targets, spinner and even the ramps do not show well on top down views. This changes that. Also, I rarely get to see what’s actually playing on the projector when it’s in the the traditional top down perspective.

Secondly, the upside down effect looks even better with those GITD bands from this angle.

And thirdly Cleland rocks.

Definitely making this my next NIB purchase and will likely do it in the winter/spring as I’m nervous it won’t have as long a run as other titles. Especially with TMNT and now AIQ killing it. Sterns gonna be on to the next one.

#5436 1 year ago
Quoted from imagamejunky:

Where can we get the dig dug mod?
Can it be moved without fabbing a new bracket?

If you get it, post pics where you decided to mount it. I'm assuming it would be on the right side and out of the way, since you have the Mezel arcade sign on the left already.

#5437 1 year ago
Quoted from dashv:

Topper is coming. It features demo dogs.
Not sure how interactive they will be. But I got this info straight from Stern two weeks ago.

Damn, was hoping for something like this with an interactive Mind Flayer.

From where? I haven't seen it actually offered anywhere.

Stern Shop has had it up for a while now, but I haven’t pull the trigger... yet.

https://shop.sternpinball.com/collections/accessories/products/stranger-things-side-armor

Looking forward to seeing what they look like installed.

#5519 1 year ago

Ahh gotcha, didn’t realize that. Why even have it up then or allow you to add to your cart? What a joke!

#5568 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballslave:

Not sure why the artist put 'PALACE' above 'ARCADE' though...

A lot of the promotional material out there has it this way, I guess it’s more relatable than the plain arcade sign seen in the show.

#5574 1 year ago
Quoted from pinballslave:

Thanks, I missed that when watching the show... So 'promotional items people' decided to combine the two signs to make something that wasn't in the series as a sales technique... I'm in the category of not being impressed with that myself, preferring something that reflects more accurately what was depicted... I guess I'm in a minority on that one if the marketing people got it right

Not to dominate the thread with this, but the palace arcade moniker isn’t something people just came up with. It’s on the workers shirt in the episode too, and this is the same logo that’s used on most items. Matter of fact I own this shirt myself.

#5613 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

The art wasn’t what people wanted. The layout wasn’t what people wanted. The code was basic basic day 1 like guardians, so not very appealing. Then covid hit before anyone could play the newest code.
Just like GOT, it’s gonna be a game that is super solid, but largely people won’t care about it.

Think you nailed it.

#5683 1 year ago

All these new posts I missed in the last couple days and I was convinced there was either new code released or a topper confirmation.

Damn.

#5701 1 year ago

They just picked up filming again last week after the delay of COVID, so they’re way behind. I don’t think they’re committing to a release date beyond 2021 yet, and even that is a stretch. Man, these kids are going to look even older than they should be (once again). That’s the problem when the seasons don’t skip years. How old were they supposed to be again in S3, 14?

#5703 1 year ago
Quoted from C0untDeM0net:

At this point they are going to have to revisit the kids in College a few years later lol. None of them look like kids anymore.

Haha exactly!

[quoted image]

You have an LE? Those legs do look great.

Can you possibly take a pic of that shooter plate in good lighting with the game off? Curious to see how well it matches the artwork in front of the game. Do you have the matching one on the lock bar too?

If you put the Dig Dug sensor in front of GI lighting it should remain on all the time, in theory.

Everyday I come here hoping to hear news on the topper.

And every day I’m disappointed.

#6219 1 year ago
Quoted from dashv:

Spent all day in my arcade working on ST.
Installed a shaker, UV kit, and Art blades.
Unfortunately damaged one of the art blades in an obvious spot. I’m hoping I can figure out how to touch up the part I damaged (guess I need to learn how to airbrush and color match. Unless there is an easier way.)
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
But every thing else went well.
Played a couple of games using glow balls. I love them with the UV and they work just fine with the TK multiball lock. (I still haven’t fixed my tk mech so the mech itself only works 1 out of 20 times).
I really want to recommend glow balls, but I just can’t. They break down way too quickly and they dirty up the projector surfaces. But they look so cool when the uv is on!
All in all, today is the first time I’ve thoroughly enjoyed playing this table and I’m glad.
Now to add some mods, fix what’s broken and convince the family to give it a fair shake.
Last thing. I want to move the out lane posts but I don’t want to damage the clear. What kind of washers should I get?

Have glo balls on my GB but they’re not in play. Sounds like they would look awesome with the UV lights, as you said. However, curious what you mean by “they break down way too quickly and dirty up they projector surfaces”? Do the balls actually break? Also how does it dirty up the projector surfaces any more than a steel ball would?

#6221 1 year ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

They attract dirt like crazy.

Guess that’s the nature of the material then. Good to know. Crossing that off my list.

#6346 1 year ago
Quoted from TheCnyPinGuy:

So.. I was playing my Stranger Things Pro today
And thought of an interesting concept
What if in the upside down in certain modes the flippers were reversed
Anyone else think that could be cool ??
Still updates coming

That’s a feature in Ghostbusters, first time it happened it freaked me out. Super hard to play like that, so either hit both flippers at the same time or cross your hands so your brain can operate like normal. It is a pretty neat concept, and Stern has already done it once so it’s possible they add it again.

#6423 1 year ago
Quoted from KJS:

Thanks for the kind words on the translite mod. It came out really well.
I'm actually just about to do my pf swap with a tweaked up pf and reclear. Going to mirror polish all metal, move further with planned mods. I'll update pics when done.
Some more pics.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]
[quoted image]

Wow your game looks great, and way different than stock. Most people don’t have the balls to replace all the graphics, especially on a new game, kudos to you for taking the plunge. I like it’s simple, yet intimidating appearance.

Quoted from Mudflaps:

Retro Refurbs in the UK

Wait, really? So I’ve been putting off this purchase for a bit as I want to make a big order with them and I am not ready for that just yet. This translite was one of the pieces I was going to order, however the art on yours is organized differently than the pic they have up on their site, which is a direct rip from the poster/marketing Netflix did for season 3. Did you request this change from Retro Refurbs, or do they make an alternate version of that one? Or did they just ship that to you without explaining why it differs from the picture on their site?

https://www.retrorefurbs.com/shop/stranger-things-season-3-alternate-pinball-translite/

edit: just realized you were answering his question and you’re not the OP. I don’t think that one is from Retro Refurbs.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I doubt that’s the official price. Just a place holder. I say expect $1,000 for toppers until they’re not.
No word on when we will see it or when it will be available.

If it moves, yes. If it’s a plastic light show, no, it’ll be $650.

https://cointaker.com/products/avengers-infinity-quest-topper

#6846 1 year ago
Quoted from finnflash:

And still a ridiculous price

Quoted from chuckwurt:

$100 is a ridiculous price for a topper. Haha

Totally agree. As a result the classifieds section has seen a large influx of toppers, from Stern to 3rd Party, with insane asking prices.

#6882 1 year ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

I hate to say this, but I think at this point we may never see a topper. With LZ's topper being announced concurrently with the game and not even a rumor of an STh topper release, I think Stern has basically abandoned anything else going forward with this game. I know chuckwurt doesn't care, but I was kind of psyched for a topper.

They did the same thing with Avengers IQ too. Seems to be their new marketing strategy, to make an “accessories” trailer soon after the game is announced.

The thing that doesn’t make sense is that every Stern release since they moved to Spike has had a topper made for it, even the titles that bombed like BKSOR (great topper btw), so it would be odd to never have one for STh. Plus the fact that they keep making light show updates for it with the last few code updates. It took a long time for the Star Wars topper to be announced/released, so I haven’t given up hope yet.

#6884 1 year ago
Quoted from beelzeboob:

But SW sold much better than STh, I think. I'm thinking it may be a decision based on numbers of units sold, and the possibility of not selling enough toppers to the people that actually have STh.

Agree with you, but then explain Black Knight? Sales couldn’t have been better than Stranger Things. I’m not saying it will definitely happen, but I have some hope. I wonder though if this topper was being designed as a motorized one, with a higher price, and then I could see the concern. But they sold out of the BK toppers right? I mean few things are hotter right now than toppers. It almost seems like they could make up whatever price they want and sell out. Almost.

#6887 1 year ago
Quoted from C0untDeM0net:

Munsters too. One of the better toppers and that machine never even got a good code update. I can tell you there are more stranger things machines around at bars than munsters.

Agreed.

Quoted from PinPickle:

I went with the art blades as well. My pin has been sitting in the basement in its original box for the last week. It's wrapped in Christmas paper for the family and I have UV kit, art blades, and a few other tasteful mods to add. It's killing me not opening it.

Man, can I be in the family too? Thats awesome, you’ll soon enjoy it!

#6946 1 year ago
Quoted from Mudflaps:

- Added logic for the lockdown bar button...

Oh!

Quoted from Mudflaps:

...to restart the music playlist during
DJ Mixer.

Oh...

Still, that’s a pretty kickass update. Funny how we were just talking about the shaker not doing much and now it’s fixed.

#12256 8 months ago
Quoted from KingVidiot:

Someone asked me yesterday what my grail pin is, and it’s this game.
For me, the combination of layout, projector, uv kit, central bash toy with mouth skill shot, easy to shoot modes, music and theme, and general challenge all just click perfectly. Locking all 3 balls on the wall (super consistently now with the free ramp cover replacement I got from Stern) is the most satisfying ball lock mechanism in all of pinball.
I’ve done some mods myself, like drawing all new UV ink art on the art blades, flippers, and few other accessories. Super hard to get proper pictures of.
Also added a mirror above the pops, because I just love watching pops go off, haha. It’s one of the many simple joys in pinball.[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Ok, that is sick. How did you do it? Go over the original Stern art with UV paint? Was it a paint pen or something else? Is the color “clear” when there is no black light shining on it or?

#12257 8 months ago
Quoted from spidey:

It's funny how many people have the accessories and don't yet have the game, while others have the game and waiting (impatiently) for the accessories. I ordered the topper and UV kit in May. Someday...

That’s me. I ordered every Stern accessory for this game as they came out, but I don’t own the game yet.

And now I can’t buy the premium NIB so I have the joy of finding a used one for a reasonable price. Figured Stern would make them for at least two years but it seems that Stern only makes premiums for one year. I know this game didn’t sell well initially so that probably had something to do with it.

#12261 8 months ago
Quoted from KingVidiot:

Thanks! It was a uv paint pen and a uv flashlight, because it’s impossible to see without uv light. The effect is seamless with the original table art.
I’m debating doing more uv art on some of the plastics, the main projector screen, and the inside/underside of the glass too, but it does show up a little on glass. I think if I’m strategic about placement, it could be really cool.

Awesome, thanks for sharing! Glass would be cool but maybe in the corners, like some of those older games that had decals on the glass. Did you freehand the flippers, or are those decals that you went over in UV?

Today I received insert ladders for stranger things from pinmonk and they are very nice indeed.
Had a full set for gb which were excellent, only 3 needed on ST but got rid of those awful white inserts and now looks like fire for burn it back
Also thanks to Chris B for the standard premium apron which I drilled and transferred the uv kit from the pro apron I received to it, and again to Chris B for sending me 2 replacement apron window plastics as I managed to scrape the back of one when drilling the holes, I should have removed them first, so thanks Chris for not making my mistake permanent !
As I have a pro it doesn’t have the apron plastic lights so thanks to Phil for getting these for me which I also fitted today and wired up to the white GI.
Along with swopping the red flasher domes to purple, again supplied by Phil.
Also changed the awful green start button to red which looks like purple when lit lol love it.
Also glad I went with the purple rubbers over the awful uv ones and they look stunning when they turn pink with the UV, pity my phone doesn’t capture the lights very well and looks spectacular in person.
Just the magnetic Apron to fit which arrives this week, die shooter rod, clear drops and get the powder coating done once my side armour arrives and job done

Very nice!

How does your start button light purple if it’s red? Do you have the stock green Start insert installed under the red start button cover? Or are you using a purple LED?

Are those Titan rubbers? I think they have more than one purple, which one is UV reactive?

Hi,
It’s a complete new Stern Red start button.
But I only swopped the button and holder and left the original bulb and bulb holder attached to the machine and just twisted in to place.
It’s red when unlit but looks more pinky / purple when lit, strange I know but it is stranger things lol
The rubbers are the same as on a post on here - perfect play purple, so they are purple during normal play but go pink when uv on or flashing, it’s very nice and they play really well too

Awesome, thanks for sharing! That is strange about the start button, but good to know, ha! I don’t have the game yet, but do have the Titan Glow in the Dark rubber ring kit, and I like yours a lot as an alternative, plus they match the colors of the game.

Quoted from DustinP:

It was so poorly protected in the box by Stern that I don’t think it was anyone’s fault but Sterns. It had the two grey foam pads on bottom (that slid in the center during transit) and a handful of bubble wrap on top. That’s it.

Wow, sorry to see that. You are definitely missing at least 3x additional gray cushion pieces which may have saved it. Two on either side and one large one in the front. See pic attached of my STh topper, still in the box.

This is totally on Stern. I would raise hell.
