Quoted from Neal_W:

Which are those?

Not good! In fact, the worst I have seen to date for Stern.

Three machines I have personally see so far. I actually am yet to see a single Beatles with more than 400 plays that does not have this issue appear.

Has Stern acknowledged the issue?

Who did the clear? Looks just like the JJP issue except on the JJp the clear and art is lifting right up once that bubble cracks.

that is what is going on here.

Much worse than what I have seen on other recent games.

Quoted from Psw757:

currently waiting on distributor to get this fixed. This far complete radio silence from Stern.

They have always made it right before so very odd to have this reaction this time around.
Hoping for resolution very soon. It already impacted the decision to not buy a new cat woman and instead grab some other games.

Mistakes and F ups happen. It is how they fix it that matters.

I played a gold model today and was semi-surprised by how much fun this is. As a bonus the pin looks much better in person than it photographs. If this was not such a money grab by Stern (or I was an avid Beatles fan) I'd seriously consider buying one, they did a really nice job with it.

#3756 87 days ago

I hope the price go down alot and that they get thoose mirco"esque playfields sorted.
The game looks stylish and somewhat fun. Would love to get for a diner-style gameroom., way to pricy here in Sweden though, where the gold comes at 11k.

Yeah, I felt the same way. It seemed fun the first handful of times I played it. But then I realized it was boring AF and the code was shallow and sucks. What an effing scam this game was. I remember Kamikow going on some podcast where he said how great it was and how everyone should pounce on this game immediately before they were unobtanium. And how they were going to be a great investment. Of course the podcaster was slobbering his knob. There is very little in this pin and it is a decent buy at $3000. Kaminkow can go take his fake bat mobile and ride all his ill gotten profits from this shit show right up his batcave.

Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

My distributor says call only for price. I wonder if he will even put one in the showroom, he usually does with new titles but with the limited production maybe not. Wrong thread but is Elvis pinball any good?

8 months later....Beatles sales are in the tank. Gameroom Guys has them on sale, can’t get rid of them.

They were in the tank a month after release. The Beatles store sold their last one the same month it was released and has sold zero for 8 months. There are sub $6k deals already on demo models here and there. Feel sorry for the suckers that paid through the nose for Diamond and Platinum models. If Stern gets it at or near pro pricing, they MIGHT be able to make the other 964, otherwise, it's dead.

#3760 86 days ago

I’d pay $6k for a nib it’s a fun game just not worth $7800 imo

It was being played non-stop last night at Logan's when I was there, so I didn't ask about audits but let's say 2000 which I imagine is low.

Yikes! Those rubbers have about had it. We put ~2500 plays on ours at home, and ours were getting pretty bad, but not that bad. I replaced the original rubbers with Titan competition silicone, and it looks and plays well. I bought ~1 extra for each size, and still paid only $25 for white rings. 4 red flipper rubbers were ~$6 at Titan. Installing on Beatles was straightforward since there are no ramps.

2500+ at home, nice job! I was told after the post probably 6000+ plays, but my point wasn't as much about the plays as it was the playfield post area. They do a very good job of maintaining their machines, they show dirty but were still playing good!
