Quoted from iceman44:

Just mix it all up and see what comes out! BS or not, who knows

I think that WOZ has made you more retarded .

Quoted from mrobertso2:

I haven't seen anything about the premium except the original announcement. Honestly I wouldn't be surprised if they scrapped it. 800 LE's slowly selling.... prob won't sell out. Mustang pin already announced. A lot of positive talk on the LE now but too little too late? Weirder things have happened.

Well the Premiums are starting to ship at the end of the week and will be in our hands pretty soon.

I'm waiting to see how they want to handle it.. for now i'm told to keep it strapped on pallet...

Good luck. Thanks for posting the pics. It sucks that you can't play it either. Throwing salt on the wound. I'd imagine they have 3 options: swap with completely new one, send you a new cabinet & pay to have someone swap playfield or just offer you a hefty discount/reimbursement. Not sure what I'd be willing to accept considering how much we paid. I hope they make this right for you quickly.

#358 6 years ago

There's actually a 4th option considered...

Complete refund and send it back?

#360 6 years ago

My opinion is worthless so here is an idea, if you can handle keeping it as is, I would ask Stern for a $1500 voucher good for any NIB purchase from a Stern authorized distributor of your choice with no expiration date.

Shipping that one back to Stern and them shipping you a new one, $600-700, labor to swap your speaker panel into another game, $50, Stern loss on cabinet, $600-800.

Quoted from Mycal:

4th Option: Ship it back and have the cabinet repaired and shipped back was proposed.

LOL they're shipping them already. What's with this MUST SELL INSTANTLY or it's a flop mentality? The game more or less JUST came out. When Stern makes a game, it's usually in production for a couple years. They announced 3 games at 3 price points and are making all 3 & will for some time.

Didn't say it was a "flop" I have a LE due hopefully tomorrow. I hadn't seen or heard of any posts on the premium, no one was talking about it except a few who hated the color.

Exactly.

So funny to hear how STLE is supposedly selling very slowly simply because distributors still have some left. There are 799 of them, and like you said, the pin was basically just released.

How long did it take JJP to sell out on 1000 WOZ LE's? It was well over a year.

Whoa, I wouldn't accept that damage, not on a 9k'eh pin. Hell I didn't even accept damage on a cheap ass Pro. You deserve a perfect pin for that price, especially a nice looking one like STLE.

COME ON QC 9K PIN? Really where did you pull this number from??? Dude get your facts straight before posting.

I think it's $9k because he is in Canada?

The price is actually slightly higher here in Canada, depending on what province you live in. My LE was 9,256 and change in British Columbia. So his "Facts" are some what accurate.

So if any fact finding needs to be straighten it is not from the QG.

#370 6 years ago

The guy with the damage was in Florida. I got mine for just over 7.3k so I doubt he paid 9k in Florida. The damage is not acceptable at any price though. I am just tired of QC jumping in these threads and constantly talking about the price of the LE. He backed out of his LE and is trying to make himself feel good about purchasing his pro.

Maybe in your own head that is what it is? I feel great about my Pro . I just was telling the guy I wouldn't accept that damage and I didn't accept damage on my "cheap ass Pro" which I thought implied don't accept damage at any price. My post was only telling the guy he shouldn't accept that kind of damage on a pin, nothing else. But you can make what you want of it.

Have Seen the exact same on a met pro unboxed a couple of weeks ago. Was rather at the back near the bottom so it was decided to accept as is. It is like the wood is damaged at tha point and they just pit the decal on top of it

I don't think Santa would mind. You got my permission!

#380 6 years ago

I think the shippers opened it and put some time on the game!! It's official the Truckers like STLE! The game is very good enjoyable.

The number 501 was the highest I saw. But I wouldn't read much into any of the numbers you see out there. Who knows what order they will actually produce them in, or how they will be sent out to various distributors and sold.

#382 6 years ago

Where did you get the side mirrors? I need those for sure they look great

My dealer told me when we picked up the STLE Stern was done with STLE for the year, No more LE's and we should be happy we received ours! They said Stern had moved to the new ACDC and a major update was ready for ACDC. I ordered one!

5th Option: Send a local guy in FL to strip the machine and re-decal. Let me know if there's anyone local that's got the skills and wants that job.

However, most bets are on it going back to Chicago.

Yea… maybe they took a joy ride on my STLE; I thought it odd when the driver was pointing out the features of the game to me…

It would make for a good pinball spoof… an eighteen wheel game room.

#393 6 years ago

Okay, send me your info. and I'll pass it along to Stern. Also, let me know your schedule.

Box came pristine. I'm told there have been others with the same gash in the exact same place as mine.

After you take pictures, why not set it up and play it until they send you another?

So far I've logged 6 or 7 games on STLE. It has a lot of nice things going for it, but I'm still enjoying the Tron LE a lot more. Maybe it's just lack of familiarity until I know the STLE shots better. For now though, Tron LE rains supreme in my book. However, today is our christmas office party at our new offices and the unveil of the STLE. I'll see which pin gets more action and what my colleagues think.

Tron / ST combo in a line up = A+!

both are fast fun games and some of sterns best work in the past couple years.

717 in UK. Balls go round with some force. Have turned coil power to soft. So far speechless. Words can't describe how good this game is.

My STLE is sitting near my TRON Pro (with Eli's lit ramp mod). My inner-nerd does not know what to do with itself, save play pinball!
