Wow
It doesn’t look like a Stern!

#3 60 days ago

Definitely interesting. With the cutouts on the apron, looks like that is the Premium / LE model...it will be interesting to see how much of the projector, flip down screen and magnet work gets axed for the Pro.

#4 60 days ago

Looks good I gotta see the pro see if it’s worth the extra for premium or not.

#5 60 days ago

Wow. Looks interesting.

#6 60 days ago

Nice I see the palace arcade sign left ramp.

Me like!

#9 60 days ago

I’ll be damned... multiple new ideas with an absolutely killer theme. Well played.

#10 60 days ago

Hopefully the pro is just as good

#11 60 days ago

One thing I'd be concerned about is how it looks in bright lighting. If the images come from a projector, it can't be huge lumens, so full lighting the screens may be next to invisible. The thing looks friggin awesome though.

#12 60 days ago

Wow this is something different! Very cool

#13 60 days ago

I worry for the smaller side displays, taking airballs off the lowered center display "ramp".

Looks awesome, though!

#14 60 days ago

Pro will be missing projector and magnet ball lock at least I believe.

#15 60 days ago

First observation.. that projector screen blocks a lot of the visible play field. That will be missing on the pro? I guess they will still have the motorized ramp that opens for the demigorgon shot, so it must be on the pro too.

That is not a display. An image is projected there from under the apron.

Pro is gonna b very different... very curious to see how they do it.

Pro will have the same mech but art will be on it instead of the white.

Also far left shot of some sort under the left ramp return like on mm. Maybe it does something else also?

#20 59 days ago

Shows intro music is catchy, get you pumped up. Like the image being projected on targets in center of playfield. I do like drop targets better, but this is cool. Man I may need to get this pin while I'm waiting on another pin to be built.

#21 59 days ago

Looks interesting.

#22 59 days ago

Video should be credited to Kaneda. He "leaked" it!

#24 59 days ago

Nah I just think he deserves the credit instead of this random guy who just posted it like he found it himself. The guy who posted it on the stranger things thread did it the right way.... Crediting the source.

Dickywonka is back though!

#25 59 days ago

I like the idea but seems Strange with the lcd above the prjector screen

#26 59 days ago

The pro may be completely different like Game of Thrones or GB. I think the projection is a great innovation that we keep asking for. The fact they mentioned 40 modes for the home environment backs up the thought that the Premium /LE are for collectors and the Pro is for on location!

#27 59 days ago

Whether the projector works well or not, I appreciate Stern’s attempt to create something new!

#28 59 days ago

There is already a well established Stranger Things thread.

Moderators, can we please close this one?

LOL. Have you seen all the rick and Morty threads?

#30 59 days ago

Im not interested at all...next!

This is my thought. Poor quality projected scenes on the playfield while just above is a 1080p lcd animation. Seems....off.

I'm not good enough to look up to the screen during gameplay, so I actually like the idea of having this in my field of view. I believe there was already an attempt called pinball 2000 or something like that before pinball collapsed but I don't know much about this. P3 is doing something similar with the playfield being a screen which I think is really cool if I remember correctly. But I'm new to the hobby so I don't really have a specific affinity to a certain format or nostalgia.

Wow, there are some great ideas here! The projector is fantastic because you can still move the mech and it keeps projecting. Looks like they have used some basic projection mapping (https://www.creativebloq.com/video/projection-mapping-912849)<— those videos show why this is brilliant and should absolutely be incorporated into future machines

I love the wall magnet ball lock too. Great ideas here

#35 59 days ago

Magnet lock reminds me of KISS...projector to ramp is cool, but how many modes are going to require you bashing the bash toy?

#36 59 days ago

I honestly don't like stern that much but I'm really liking what I see so far. Definitely a possibility for my collection!

#37 59 days ago
Quoted from Krupps4:

This and Stern in general does elicit praise from me to often.

I'm chuckling about folks hollering about projector bulb life, give the thing a chance!

Beats the 3 pop bumper, a bash toy and a few ramps formula that has been flogged endlessly to death.

Similar for sure.

Works great on KISS.

#39 59 days ago

You want different. There it is. I love different. Should be great.

I agree that Lonnie could ruin it like Dwight did with Munsters and GB initially.

#40 59 days ago

I'm impressed. I'm one that whines about lack of new innovation and this has it. Not that magnets are new to pinball but the way it uses them for a ball lock is cool. I do wonder about heat though. You get a bad player and the magnet/s stays engaged for a really long time what happens? The projector is a crazy cool idea as well. Love how the target names/appearance change. With any projector you're dealing with a bulb. Wonder what the life expectancy is and potentially even worse is if Stern uses one of those super cheap ultra compact Chinese jobs what the failure rate of the unit itself will be? Let's face it, as of late cheap has become Sterns middle name.

The clear coat looks really nice (glass like) compared to what they used for JP and DP. Let's hope it holds up. Why Stern hasn't revisited the use of a topside T-nut is beyond me. Compared to RaM (game play wise), this looks substantially better. Wonder how many RaM pre-order people will bow out and go for this instead?

#41 59 days ago

Interested to see how the projector is in the light. Hope its nice and bright. I know its always a battle against light. Super cool idea hope it works as well as it does in the video.

#42 59 days ago

Lonnie is what scares me with this one too. I think Tanio would have done well with this game. What he did with Deadpool was awesome!

#43 59 days ago

Looks good in the dark but really curious how the effects perform with room lights on.
Can’t wait to flip it!

No offense, but U must be under 40. Anyone remember the resolution of drive in movies? Not hd that’s for sure. It’s by design to emulate the drive in theaters.

#45 59 days ago

Holy c***, who is this Lonnie guy? New to the Hobby, honest question. Seems like people don't like him. What did he do?

#46 59 days ago

why is anyone concerned about the projector light? you know all those projections people have on their houses on halloween/xmas? Those are all done by 1 white LED bulb. Standard LED like you would put in your GI socket. Why would the projector use anything different?

Looks great. Great ideas done here. But as we all SHOULD know. Never ever buy something until you play it a lot. See if the shots and rules work well. So far, it's got a great look. Great toys, and good theme. Lets see if the package is fun enough after playing to want to buy.

Quoted from CaptainNeo:

You know how they don't work during the day when it's light out? That's my worry.

I have no idea what's going on here, I'm more confused after seeing it
Wonder what the pro will do with no projection, just a big "Hawkins population" sign or something? Def need to see more but newish tech is always a good thing so i'm looking forward to it. For sure looks too clown puked but we shall see.

I'm also happy everyone is rage quitting the game because it says "Netflix" on it! True growth since TWD

He’s been coding machines for decades including many people
Like.

If he has that much experience this should be great! Getting that many modes in which are non repetitive is certainly a difficult task! I don't know why I'm so stoked, I know I won't be buying one until end of next year.

that is true, but they DO work during the day if they are close enough to the object you are projecting on. The reason you can't see them is because of distance. In a pinball machine, you are only projecting 1ft, maybe 2 at the most. You will be able to get an image pretty strong at that limited space and distance. I always test out my projectors before I put them outside and even in the middle of the day, you can see it plain as day on the wall when sitting about 2 to 3 feet away from a white wall. Plus, most of our gamerooms are semi dark. (which is a main reason that we can't see shit with colored GI's), so I think this projector will display nicely.
