Does your wife want to come over for an unboxing?

Just saw the voice actor for TMNT cartoons and many others.

This guy is amazing!

Don’t worry beelzeboob , the Pinside humour feature has been broken for a while now.

Watched the 1990 movie tonight with the family. All a master plan to convince them we need this game! Looks amazing

I'm suprised Ninja Turtles hasn't been added to the pinside database yet.

Quoted from gblack:

Go here:
https://pinside.com/pinball/machine

Search for "teenage" or "turtles" etc. All you'll find is the Data East one.

This omission also affects people's ability to add "for sale" ads to the marketplace. If you look at the dealer ads with NIB TMNT pins for sale, they're all linked to the wrong one, the Data East one, because the Stern one isn't in the database.

Good plan actually. When’s the next move?

Quoted from RetroGamerJP:

I'm in for a premium but going to change the T-Molding to green. To me I think it looks far better than the red.
[quoted image]

Looks awesome. Any chance you can mock up what a premium would look like with the green armor

#2517 4 years ago
Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

Singing the song a few times a day. Gets in you head and my 4 year old has started singing it now. Also trying the newer cartoons even though I’d rather go with the original. Definitely getting some good play time in with the games on our arcade too. Attacking from all angles!

#2518 4 years ago

Soooo anyone hearing about pros being available this week? No confirmation on my end. Was hoping to get one this week but might be next

I’ve only heard mid June.

#2520 4 years ago

Just remembered Metallica had a big mono target for fuel. Why the hatred now? Don’t recall much complaining back then.

#2521 4 years ago
Quoted from cooked71:

Just remembered Metallica had a big mom no target for fuel. Why the hatred now? Don’t recall much complaining back then.

Welcome to 2020 where people complain about the cost of toppers when it was the same or worse years earlier.

The game is finished. People need to accept or not not. I think it turned out to be a great game I can’t wait to play it.

#2522 4 years ago
Quoted from cooked71:

It didn’t originally until Stern changed after it was finished.
Edit: I remember people being upset about the spinner I think but the Pro was also a lot less than a Pro now.

Ah, spinnergate.....fond memories of when Pro’s were $4500 and we still complained.

Right, I still try to wrap my head around all the $4500 pins that are now $5000 used a couple years later because of the increase.

#2532 4 years ago

Just put an order for the pro. Was initially going to get AFMr, but family approves of this theme. Maybe one day I’ll be able to get a second.

Was told they may start boxing them as soon as this Friday.

#2533 4 years ago

Don’t know if Xaqery has mentioned this, but in the versus would be really cool to be able to steal multiballs or put bad toppings on other turtles pizzas or steal toppings.

Ah, the jjPotC plunder paradigm...that would be very entertaining based on my experience with it on jjPotC.

Anyone else heard updates on shipping i was last told late June.

Nothing. Same as I was told.

Mid to late June for me as well. Was hoping to see some movement on the 16th, but am trying not to think about it so I'm not disappointed!

#2539 4 years ago

Yesterday I was told stern boxing coming this Friday and probably shipping out Monday. Distributor said they just talked to them that day.

#2540 4 years ago

Does anybody know the build schedule? Pros, Premiums and LEs?

#2541 4 years ago
Quoted from TaTa:

They're finishing up a JP run, then first TMNT Pros start boxing Friday. LEs beginning of July. Premium end of July, Pros again in August.

EDIT 6/10: New JPs have been shipping this week, so the schedule seems to be on track.

#2542 4 years ago

I've been very impressed with what I have seen on TMNT and I think it will be my first Stern. It is a family friendly theme that my wife approves of and the ruleset looks like it will work great in a home environment. I was initially thinking Pro, but after re-watching the streams I am starting to learn toward the Premium. The one thing I don't really care for on the Premium is the purple cabinet artwork. For those in on a Premium, what made you decide on that over the Pro or LE?

#2543 4 years ago

I like the translite on the premium better and I think the purple will look much better in person. I also think the balls coming out of the van will be a cool effect when starting a multi ball plus the diverter is a cool idea.

It's mostly just a cost proposition:

Do you think the diverter is worth $2k then Premium if the answer is no stop and buy a Pro.
Do you think LE perks (sound, armor, LE#, etc) are worth $2k then LE.

#2545 4 years ago

I just put a deposit on a Pro and was told 3-4 weeks

I went in on a premium because of the diverter, turtle van lock and 8 ball multi ball. Premium/LE are supposed to be the “full game as the designer envisioned”, also, I regret not going for a premium on Ghostbusters and don’t want to do that again.

I prefer to do my own powder coating, side blades and all of that. The only thing an LE would add that I would want is the shaker and HD glass.

Why live with a decision you regret? Just sell your GB Pro and buy a HUO GB Prem or LE. The cost gap will likely be even less than when they were new. The Premium version of GB is way bettter than the Pro, IMO. Make the change and leave the regret behind.

The pro was my first NIB and machine. I love it, don’t get me wrong, but if I could do over. I’m happy enough with it for now, maybe one day I’ll venture to do that swap. Not to mention I’ve decked the thing out, including your color inserts before the code overhaul.

Bah. Just strip out the upgrades you love and move them right over to the Premium. No time like the present to be happier.

(And thank you for your support. )

#2550 4 years ago

If you are thinking of doing the premium on TMNT, you might as well splurge on the LE at that point. Otherwise, just get the pro. There simply isn’t enough of a difference between the pro and premium.
