I would have liked to see Day Tripper but the 9 they got are pretty good.

Anyone else joining the club!

#9 4 months ago

I love me some Beatles, But I don't think I would enjoy the pin. Plus I am tapped out for a long time! Or so the wife thinks

#10 4 months ago

I'm in...looking forward to it.

What do you all make of Joe K comments about there being a possible wizard mode?

Which podcast was that? The only reference I remember in one of them was to “wizardy things.” Looking forward to seeing the video content.

#14 4 months ago

I was at Stern yesterday. All 3 versions were on the line. The graphics and display are amazing. The game really comes together because of it. Nobody in this club will regret this purchase. It was an expensive investment, but it's the frickin' Beatles. I can't wait.

Did they let you play it?

I think it was the head 2 head with the Gary Stern interview immediately after Joe.

Pretty sure he said its an approachable game with enhanced rules that aren’t as easy as you would think and also believe he said something along the lines that there is even something there for those who like to dig deep and enjoy wizard modes.

I took that to mean there maybe something other than the 5 modes and 2 multi-balls, what else could he mean by saying that?

This set is great for topper.....$200 bucks at amazon.......about 10" tall

That is pretty cool. Wonder if it’s wider than the head of the machine?

My distributor said there is supposed to be a factory topper available for purchase.

#19 4 months ago

I saw statements about a topper in the “near future” in some of the distributor game descriptions too.

#20 4 months ago

I’m hoping we see a video of actual gameplay this week.

Odd that since they are shipping so soon and nothing yet.

#22 4 months ago

Not sure what this is but can you download and share again for us non Facebook people?

#23 4 months ago

No IAAPA pictures or video?

#24 4 months ago

Anyone have any concrete info on shipping yet?

After seeing the videos today I’m really excited to get this!

#26 4 months ago

For those that have played it at IAAPA, are the song lengths adequate and integrated well?

Does code seem complete or are there any areas where polish is needed?

#27 4 months ago

Sound of crickets...............

Am I seeing lit apron?

#28 4 months ago

Who should I send my deposit to ,
I am new and open to buy off anyone really
I want the best one

#29 4 months ago

Definitely get in touch with Tommy at Nitro Pinball (flipperfreak ). He can ship across Canada no problem. He was (or is?) at IAAPA and recently posted a video of the Beatles machines at IAAPA on the Nitro Facebook page.

#30 4 months ago

Watched some of the videos that were posted and don’t recall seeing taxman or help in any of the gameplay.

Anyone know how these are actually integrated?

How is the sound quality of the songs and callouts?

#31 4 months ago

I’m in for a gold model, have been watching some vids and it looks really nice
I like the layout, as it’s vastly different to everything else in my ramp-centric collection
However I’m really hoping the code will be fleshed out
I’m thinking a proper wizard mode is essential (maybe tied in with Taxman, that’d be great)
I understand that a hard days night multiball can only be qualified by completing the 5 main tracks, but surely that couldn’t constitute as the wizard mode
That’d be too easy for seasoned players, I know of people that have played the game at IAAPA and have managed to reach AHDN multiball in just a few plays

I think all nine songs are utilized for something already and taxman is a main gameplay song from what I understand.

A true wizard mode would likely need the addition of a 10th song. Daytripper would be a good time for this!

#33 4 months ago

Is it a 3 ball or 5 ball game?

#34 4 months ago

How do you buy the top model ?
I called a place and they said 20k
Who is the best place to send a deposit for the 1-100 Beatles pin ? Hoping not to pay 20k
Thanks for you help
I will buy in any state and use my Florida address

#35 3 months ago

I'm in... hopefully being delivered next week.

londonpinball I do not believe you will spend $25k - $30k on a Beatles diamond pinball. You have been on Pinside less than a year and have purchased two pins - a Bally Williams and a Stern pro. For the superrich who may actually buy a diamond pin, they would not have settled. That indicates you consider price and value and are quite savvy. That you have multiple posts stating you want to buy the top model, but can’t remember or seem to care it is called diamond edition is puzzling. There are other tells, but for fun’s sake.

For the same money you could get a platinum Beatles AND a LOTR that you have on your wish list. Or set your sights on a gold Beatles, LOTR AND one recent title (Houdini, TWD, BM66, AS, SW, STr, Maiden or DP). Let us know when your game(s) arrive. And we want unboxing pics!!

Anyone get their machine yet?

#38 3 months ago

Mine arrived Wednesday. It’s really fast and the ball times are fairly short. Songs/modes are selectable. Great animations. I love it, it’s a nice change from the other games in my collection.

Yes!

#41 3 months ago

After watching the dead flip stream where he got to the final mode it makes me hope that perhaps in a code update they either add 1 additional main gameplay song just to reduce the frequency of taxman and can’t buy me love. Would love to see Day Tripper in this game?

Another thought would be if you do complete hard days night rather than rinse repeat add some sort of super wizard mode.

Just a wishlist as a pending owner, looks superb otherwise!

The Beatles are arriving Friday! Anyone else get theirs this week?

I wonder what happens when you flip the score? Does it just go back to zeros or is there a 100,000,000 indicator?

That would be quite the feat to do with the glass on!

Here is a relative size pic. I think it would fit. If not, it would not be too wide by very much. One could make a platform to sit on top of the back box.

frequency of taxman

I thought Taxman was going to be the drain song.

There are times where your playing but aren’t in one of the 5 modes or the wizard and mini wizard jackpot mode.

So during main gameplay you randomly get can’t buy me love or taxman. I’m hoping they can get a third song in future update. There is no text or inserts associated with these main game play songs to my knowledge.

Come on Stern make it an even 10 songs, 9 is a odd number and 10 sounds much better!
