Dwight has been great imho. And he has given frwquent updates in most situations. Star wars is incredible and my only complaint is the multiplier. Tmnt is good with my only complaint being how frequent 123 foot is.

I need to play got again. Only had the opp once for a few games and was a pro. Does the upper playfield add a lot?

Changes the game entirely... but the pro is still friggen amazing... watch @chucwurt's video's to get a taste for the game... always plunge short! Or face the wrath!

It is legitimately great!

And in hindsight we’re absolutely blessed that they centered the rules around House battles instead of following the horrible direction the story ended up going in.

Quoted from KnockerPTSD:

Try getting an LE in Canada (of anyrhing)
I was told that if i were to buy every Stern premium and Kapow title for at least one year that then and only then would name even be put on the waiting list. "Legacy" customers have had all the LE's monopolized.
Its a bad set up. My favorite theme in the world could come out and i wouldn't be able to get an LE period.
I walked in to my distributor with 10k cash on hand last week for a deposit on the next LE and was basically laughed at.

Then screw em. If pinball has become only a rich mans game so what? Let’s move on to a newer hobby more evenly keeled.

Your Distro is selling, sight unseen. Sold out. Good for them. You’re missing NOTHING. Its just pinball.

I’m just sad it didn’t have a LCD like BM66 and on. So it had all the Spike problems without the biggest benefit.

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

There's been a lot of crap given to Dwight in this thread but he's probably created the best story based pinball rulesets for Stern in recent years. A majority of Stern's other coders seem focused on points style modes for tournament play with little mode choreography (shots, stages, animations, moments, music etc time to shots). Coding moments is something Dwight is great at, I wish we would see more of that from Stern's other coders. Sure Munsters was a dud code wise but maybe that was the designers vision for a more simple ruleset? Ghostbusters code is amazing (yes it took 3 years to complete lol), Star Trek is great, and most recently TMNT seems incredibly deep and well received.

Ghostbusters is a great game. But how long did it take for that code update? Brutal.
Munsters? Cmon....that was an amazing theme that the code made it into a very below average game IMO.
Star Trek.....great game.
TMNT ....scoring and overall code was so so.
So I’d lean towards he’s hit and miss. Still does great work though.

SW great code

I saw a distributor post this on Twitter. Not sure if this is sourced from Stern or not.

Saw this puzzle at target. Do you think this would be a good art style for the pin?

Never seen the show, so no idea how well this theme will be integrated into pinball gameplay. What I do know, is that Boba Fett was the least interesting thing in the original Star Wars films - he had a crap few minutes of doing nothing, then got eaten.

Still, always fun to see what the creatives at Stern dream up.

He got more screen time now and needs nutrisystem

So am I the only one that's glad this is a Star Wars spin off and not Star Wars?

Looks like the guy that’s doing the art on this. I like it.

Quoted from MrMikeman:

Well then you should know that P1 cannot accept a deposit on a game that isn't released yet. Yes they can put you on a waiting list. They can't collect a dime.
You may want to try again once it's announced for real.

Not entirely correct. I left my deposit on Monday morning and spoke to P1 again today thanks.

#821 1 year ago

Is Stern one with the force? Is the force one with Stern? Let’s hope so…. I blindly want one

He apparently ate his way out of the Sarlacc Pit.

So, if you're taking deposits on something that hasn't been released is that a scam?
On the other hand, if you're paying a deposit on a rumor????

It’s strange that’s for sure!

#825 1 year ago

Really hoping that they got the shows main theme song in the license. As well as any other music from the show. It has a great soundtrack.

I doubt anyone with a deposit down is concerned.

They did.

I know I love the Mandalorian show, but I gotta see the pin in action before I buy. Love Netflix stranger things the show, heard about the stern pin and got real excited but did not like the gameplay of the pin from watching YouTube video to actually playing it. If this game can deliver, and not have issues like Avengers subway mech, cancelled my previous order of a premium and bought a Willy Wonka LE instead due to the issues avengers LE owners were reporting, I will sell my JP for this because I love the star wars theme more than Jurassic Park. And I only have room for 4 pins per my wife.

Saw this on my local Facebook group. Does anyone know anything about this auction?

Nice. This is sounding better with each new nugget regarding assets from the show.
Get it done Stern!

Let's assume we'll see Luke Skywalker somewhere on the playfield or cabinet! Could mean Stern payed for the big license and won't need to cut back! ('cause Mark Hamill wouldn't sign it otherwise)

What rank do you have to be to get access to the preview? Is this admiral level only?

Please, no more Luke Skywalker. That is so 1977

Even thou he was CGI, Luke finally got his hero moment in the Mandalorian - after the hot mess that was The Last Jedi, let him have it!

Mark Hamill did do the voice of the robot bartender in the cantina. Maybe that is why he signed the game?

Might be best if I didn't express my opinion about baby Yoda then. Or whatever they named the latest marketing gimmick.

#841 1 year ago

Based on the distributor feedback of unavailability on the LE and massive lines to acquire one site unseen it would be Crazy for Stern to not view this pre-banter and jack the LE count up to 750 or more. Smart marketing play to test temperatures.

Would still sell out IMO. It was a winner the day Stern signed the licence with Disney..

#844 1 year ago
Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

I've heard some very positive things from a non pinball family member on the art.
That was unusual, and a nice surprise.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

No, it's not released, and I haven't seen it.
But family works at Disney/Marvel in the area, where it crossed.

Pics/details or it didn’t happen, please.

#845 1 year ago

LEs do as LEs do but if this is well received imagine premiums could back up.
Some have just received their JP’s after a long wait.

#846 1 year ago
Quoted from kermit24:

Operators and people who run location tournaments typically.

I OP but am not stern army, the people running the tournaments are usually privates or something .
Curious if you get anymore perks for being a PFC, specialist, sergeant etc.. All I knew if you got swag for tourneys, like translites.... and stuff.

Wasn't the rumor 800 LE models from the beginning?
