Quoted from RobT:
I would have refused the delivery.
Agreed I would of shart my pants if my pin showed up in a box that looked like that.
Quoted from Rarehero:
Hah...not really. I saw the LE at the Stern factory so I knew what it would look like. I played the Pro a bunch so I know what it played like. I thought it was fun but wasn't feeling it that much. However after playing the LE with the current code - I really enjoyed it and it can only get better with the Karl Urban update and whatnot.
What really won me over was how each mode has 3 stages and each one is totally different. This gives you massive variety in modes and how to play them....my initial fear of X-Men-esque code...it's just way too boring for example to keep starting Beast over and over within a single game and it being the same exact thing every time. So - you can play all levels of a mode if you want, or you can do the 3-in-a-row thing with different modes...there just seems to be a lot of variety with how you can play. Plus the Vengeance modes are cool, Klingon Multiball is cool - and yes, I think the disco laser show is cool... The color changing LEDs look awesome - and again, I think the FX will just get cooler and cooler as the game gets updated.
At the end of the day, I had my inner dialog battle "Don't buy it, it's too expensive, you don't need another game" vs. "Life is short, you like it, just get it and enjoy it before you die"
Rare you said you played the pro and you weren't really feeling it.. What was it that set the LE apart? The gameplay is nearly identical isn't it? Was it the lighting effects or??
Also how is the build quality on the LE vs the pro
Quoted from JAXPinball:
ST LE #488 was delivered yesterday; ordered early and never wavered... unboxed to find a six inch GASH on the left side of the cab. It's still strapped on the pallet in the middle of the room while we wait for a reply from Stern. I'm told best case it will be weeks before this gets resolved. big expensive paper weight at this point.
We also have a new MET Premium that has a defective Snake jaw that's never worked since it's been unboxed. We're still waiting for a resolution on that for over a month.
The irony of working the wife to get the toys and they're already broken….
I've given up on Santa for 2013.
I assume the box damaged when it came off the truck?
