They could have tested one in my house if this is true...
I could have had a number of my fellow league members over on short notice

Quoted from Knapp_Arcade:

It looks like American Pinball's next game, Legends of Valhalla will be out at several locations for testing this weekend...

I'll probably have to put these kits together myself if they're going to get listed.

Thanks! brenna98 ordered and watching for the kit!

Well it's out! I'm underwhelmed by the 3D-printed and sketchily painted figures shown on the deluxe. If Stern put these on a playfield there'd be a riot. Should've had Lior do the sculpts.

Anyone spot differences between this version and what we've seen? The hammer is new?

To me, the art is still 'advanced amateur' and I'm not convinced. For an unlicensed theme, the art is what lets you knock it out of the park. Quite a custom soundtrack available for it though!

Look forward to hearing about how it plays....ultimately comes down to that for me.

#904 46 days ago

Seen the Deluxe version $8400 - How about the Classic version and pricing ????

Quoted from NoQuarters:

Well it says for the classic -- 'announced later'

#906 46 days ago

Could be as much as another 6 months before a Classic according to one distro ...

#907 46 days ago
Quoted from dr_nybble:

Well it says for the classic -- 'announced later'

They had to save something for them to talk about at Expo!

I can't wait to give it a spin. All three of their other games have had their own charm to them.

Any details you can provide of any code updates or additional LCD work we can expect to be different from the prototypes?

Looks great!

#911 46 days ago

Nice to see LOV announced. Congratulations to Riot Pinball and AP.

I will wait to see how long it takes for the Classic production to be announced and the pricing to be revealed.

Sounds like it might be a fairly long wait though ...

#912 46 days ago

Order in game looks great. A nice direction for AP.

#913 46 days ago

Order in with PinballStar, this pin looks Dope

#914 46 days ago

Looks to be good value versus the $8900 Stern Premium. If you can do without the bling and wait for the Classic, even better.

Doesn't look to be any gameplay differences between Deluxe and Classic?

#915 46 days ago

Lets see off the top of my head:
9 months of code updates based on AP group testing and IFPA member feedback. Rules are similar to the prototype games but enhanced with some animations, callouts, and lightshows.
New code framework and OS.
Message system clearly describing shots for each mode/battle/etc.
All new artwork by Scott Gullicks for the display/characters/modes/battles, etc. Display refinements.
500 new callouts by 9 voice talents including the reprise of Odin by Jeff Teolis
Changes to the playfield including additional magnet, skulpts, lighting additions, optos, different sound system, wireforms, a bunch of things.

No waiting. Go play it today at one of the 11 arcades that have games or will get them early next week (west coast/midwest).

#916 46 days ago

I’m interested if the classic is around 7k

I thought AP was changing their head design? They also desperately need a new logo

#917 46 days ago

Looking forward to playing LOV at pinball expo. Love 3 flipper layouts

#918 46 days ago

Any pricing out yet on standards?

#919 46 days ago

Just curious, not complaining.
Side blades for this game yet?

#920 46 days ago

Btw. I love the backbox design, it will look nice next to my hotwheels and houdini

#921 46 days ago

Game looks cool. I hope it sells well for American. I understand parts shortages and whatnot. But they really needed to announce this before Godzilla.

Awesome! Fingers crossed we can get one to Pincinnati so everyone can see the prototype and the final version.

I don't know, that thing that passes for Thanos's glove on AIQ is pretty damned sad and that's just the first one I can think of. I bet these looks better in person than you're seeing in the pictures.

Quoted from bobukcat:

Seems like a good strategy but I would be anyone $100 game four is NOT Sherlock Holmes, I have no insider knowledge but I'm still that confident.

You're right that glove is awful!

#927 46 days ago

Maybe a classic in the future. I love AP machines, disappointing they went the deluxe/classic route. I don't see the value at $8400+shipping especially with those 3D printed figurines.

#928 46 days ago

A few hundred dollars less than Zilla…. Going to be a hard sell

#929 46 days ago
Quoted from Yesh23:

A few hundred dollars less than Zilla…. Going to be a hard sell

Maybe not. Limited to 300 vs. 1,000 Godzilla LEs now going for $12K+. I bet these don’t last long. We’ll see though.

#930 46 days ago
Quoted from Yesh23:

A full blown le built like a tank & only 300…it’ll sell out

#931 46 days ago
Quoted from RandomGuyOffCL:

A full blown le built like a tank & only 300…it’ll sell out

Oh yeah, and 300 at $8,400 as an LE with a mirrored backglass, powder coated armour, shaker motor, and Invisi type glass. Compare that to a an unlimited Godzilla premium at $8900 without any of those additional items that are found only on their $10,500 LE's...

You can always add a shaker motor $100, inviglass $250, powder coat $300 but can you add a big 5 story mech in the middle of the playfield????

Quoted from Yesh23:

It’s the same argument everyone has on a stern Le and prem as the difference is similar for those as well. hd glass, art blades, powder coat, shaker, mirrored glass etc for 1300-1500 more. It’s just taken directly out of the stern playbook so it will be preference for that stuff. It’s an old argument. It comes down to how many people love the theme to want the Le or just want it done from the factory to make it easy.

About as easily as you can add the shit build splitting cab missing screw soupy play field big brother spy equipment within

A receipt typically means sale. Good luck

#937 46 days ago

Hope they sell out, may have to check it out.
Looking forward to seeing an updated video of the game.

Was the Thor hammer up-post replaced with a magnet in the production version?

It’s still in the picture so my guess it’s still there.

#940 46 days ago

Per pinball profile interview yes. There is a magnet instead of an up post.

#941 46 days ago

This will sit nicely next to your GOT.

#942 46 days ago

Also looks like it is player-controlled via third flipper button, per release on AP website.

#947 46 days ago

Damn it....I am in... FOMO....HAHA.

I am into supporting other vendors for 2022.

Alien and LOV will ne a nice start in the new house, if it will ever get finished...crazy times.

Is this the dedicated thread for LOV?

Cant wait to watch you stream it from the left back wall of the basement.

#949 46 days ago

The list of arcades is in the thisweekinpinball article. Thanks

Correct. Magnet is replaced the up post. We felt it was more fun to stop the ball when the hammer crashed down and you could shake the ball releasing to a lane. Its used several times during the game

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Per pinball profile interview yes. There is a magnet instead of an up post.

Quoted from Vino:

Just curious what distributors are offering these for sale?
