Quoted from J85M:
After seeing Rush I am once again like I was when Godzilla was revealed really happy I took the plunge on Mando.
I don't know what it is but I cannot get enough of Mando. The layout is so unique and different it has really kept my interest. I thought the Led Zeppelin honeymoon stage lasted long,but now Mando honeymoon seems to never end. Once you get to know the shots, it really is a spectacular shooting game. Godzilla did zero for me(mainly because of theme/layout).
I am a RUSH fan but I am sitting this one out. I don't know what is going on but my passion is lagging lately. I have had little interest because of price increases,etc. I guess I still have not gotten over the fact that pro's are selling for LE prices? I think RUSH looks fun and I look forward to playing it in person to truly judge it. I will say-the reveal did not knock my socks off. It looks like Tron and LOTR had a baby and ripped off Led Zeppelin's expression lighting. The middle ramp with magnet seems like a re-used feature from back in the day(been there done that-snooze fest). Now let's talk about the art-what were they thinking? I love the steam punk-super cool but they ruined it with the cheesy cartoon characters in the center of playfield. To me it is an eye-sore and I am getting tired of Stern's cartoony art ruining an otherwise great machine(think Spiderman vault/Aerosmith art). Just look how tasteful the band member pics are on Led Zeppelin v.s RUSH. RUSH is the best three member band to ever live and Neil is the best drummer to ever live but for some reason I am not feeling this one and do not have any FOMO. Looking forward to playing it, but unfortunately this one is not on my radar yet.
Mando for the win
