Holy Crap, why don't we just insert the same thread from every Stern release in the last 5 years and save everyone time on the key boards typing the exact same thing!

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

A JJP standard would be equal to a Stern Premium...

where do you set API ? as for example Houdini, more than loaded for sure

Dear Stern

Please don’t strip the Pro like the Jawas stripped the RazorCrest.

Sincerely,
The entire Galaxy from far, far away

#1006 1 year ago

wrong !!!!!!!!!!!! Standard JJP = Stern Pro

Quoted from Yelobird:

JJP also doesn't make a Pro so.... LE = CE

Standard JJp Gnrs were 6500 = Now Sterns inflated homepin with a coindoor pro price of 6199
JJP le Was 9500 = Stern Premium 7699
JJp CE 12500 = Stern Super LE price of Bm66 (spike 1 system Homepin lol ) 10k or elviras SLE piece of couch $$$$$$$$$$

LOL, it's a Pro...that's the point. Cheaper & has all the goodies taken out.

Buy a Premium if you want the full experience.

A better table is made from Pine, Maple, or Oak? I need to know.

#1009 1 year ago

I look forward to maybe getting one in around 3 years.....Pics should show up by then

#1010 1 year ago
Quoted from Gameroom-Goodies:

The show being lame is your opinion, I think the viewer numbers can prove you wrong, though. and based on my sales this morning, yes, the demand is extreme. I can agree with you on several points, yes the game has not been seen, agreed no one knows who the coder is, but there are people who want the LE no matter what, so wait until Tuesday when prices are inevitably higher?
This machine will sell out in LE even if the PF isn't great, and it WILL resell for well over MSRP on the 2nd hand market, whether we all like it or not.
But if none of that matters to you, pricing on LE shouldn't matter either, just grab a premium for $7,699 or $7,799

If the game blows LEs will not go for a premium in the secondary market. See AIQ and LZ for recent examples. If the game looks awesome? Maybe, though with 750+ I’ll believe it when I see it...

I’ll need to sell more plasma.
Still dizzy from last week so I could get enough cash for a pro.
Gonna pour myself another orange juice I guess.

#1012 1 year ago

Im lovin this title as it's

A) not an old timers license and will still be getting more popular by the year,

B) Not an old man music pin

C) Not a super hero based title

D) Something new from the Star Wars Universe

Now just holding out hope for: layout, art and coding that creates moments! However it's already got a ton going for it just with my A B C and D

If they honestly listened to the gripes about the 2017 game's design, and then set out to address & improve those concerns on Mando, then we may finally get the Star Wars game that this licence & us fans all deserve

Star Wars 2017 is pretty good, but it could have been so much more. I just want to see so much more with Mando. Hey 6th times the charm!

#1019 1 year ago
Quoted from Oneangrymo:

Me LE ordered. !Star Wars pin, with a baby freaking yoda. Cant go wrong!
Only issue no more room in the house, I think I can fit one more in the furnace room next to the water heater hehe.

I think this is quite interesting to me. For me to buy a pin- I'm looking at designer, rules, artwork/music package, feel/flow/playability.. Theme is nice if it is agreeable to me. It could also be a deal breaker for me too; "Care bears" pin, or "Dat wacky Taliban" pin, and I don't care how nice it plays, I'm not buying it.

Here' you've got people signing up, based soley on theme, and exclusivity. What if you get it, and it's a dud? Also: JJP self-limiting themselves "there will be NO more than XXXX": why in the hell would any business do that? Artificial shortage? Higher profit per unit I guess. But, I'd personally go for volume of sales, quality product that is a good value. You can always bank on that (quality and value).. Exclusivity, not so much; Heck - there aren't that many Yugo's left on the road- but I'm sure as heck not gonna buy one as a collector car due to it's rarity! **EDIT: in this case, perhaps not a Yugo- maybe more like a Saturn Sky.. Neat car, but very few made.**

Again- that's me, and that's my dollar votes.. If people have this kinda bread to spend on a collector item, rock on! It has been a great show (I also don't understand the political cancelling of Gina Carano; I actually listened to what she said and did not find it offensive in the slightest- plus she is mega hot) Different strokes I guess.

Gone missing like a few others that normally pipe in around a new pin release.

#1024 1 year ago
Quoted from sharkey1331:

..Here' you've got people signing up, based solely on theme, and exclusivity...

Not really - I am buying it based on the fact that I have purchased all of the new Stern releases over the last couple of years (except for TMNT, and I confess that's just because the theme does nothing for me, and Elvira because I hesitated and failed to get one), and I have loved each and every one of them. They have the designers, the coders, and the artists that have delivered consistently and they have had me covered if/when I needed something.

I am buying based on track record and I don't give a crap about exclusivity.

Well said. There are quite a few of us genuine people in the hobby. We have been buying a new LE game or two every year for 10 years and never been disappointed. Some we like more than others and some are definitely hard to let go of.

WTF?? I read these comments about AIQ and think either people haven’t played it or have no f*cking idea. Probably both.

But there's only two seasons! Maybe it's time someone pops the cherry on New Seasons Pinball DLC.

I'm off that day...pretty excited to see this reveal

Do I win something if I am the 1000th person to ask if we know who the designer is?

#1033 1 year ago

This is the first time I am considering pre-ordering a pin. Not because of the theme (I like the show btw...), but because of Brian Eddy. I LOVE Shadow, MM, AFM and Stranger Things.

#1034 1 year ago
Quoted from rai:

Everything ever made is limited.

This has always been my thing. You can basically say anything’s Rare... depending on how you look at it and what you compare it to. Words like this are often useless...

A Gottlieb Raven is pretty rare there’s prob only 400 of them left...

New pinball machine announcements are fun! I am trying to get in on a LE, but tough to find.

Cheers all, and hopefully the game is great!

Hold up...is there some sort of soft number the distributors have gotten regarding their allocation of LEs from Stern (is it the same number from their previous LE purchases?)? What’s the total of LEs being produced and how many are leaving the USA (usually half,right?). How do folks know they are getting an LE when the number hasn’t even been announced or is this all speculation?

Ive been told by my distributor im not getting an LE based on their allocation numbers. So I guess they have been told. And I got on the list in mid April so I guess they arent getting as many as they were hoping for. Now Im trying to find one elsewhere but will probably have to settle for a premium which is fine.

Speculation. Sorry for the confusion. Some distributors take a waiting list for Stern LEs, but some dont. I'm sure they will be around once the dust settles.

Got it. I’m guessing stern will keep the number of LEs to somewhere between 600 to 800 and if there is still “blood in the water” Stern will make another limited run that is green or boba fett themed. Similar to AC/DC LE and Luci, Batman and Catwoman, or Spider-Man and black/comic so those will still be able to get something limited/different later.

I hope the game sucks and the market is saturated with shitty LEs, with everyone taking a bath.

Stern going new o/s ? or level up on Spike to Spike 3 perhaps dipping toes into Bluetooth and WiFi on Mando ?

#1049 1 year ago
Quoted from MrMikeman:

Yeah well you're missing the point because where YOU are it's cheaper to buy parts. Good for you man!
You forgot BACKGLASS. Translites suck and we are comparing apples to apples.

I didn't forget it - you're just buying into their pitch that their laminated translite is the same thing as a screen printed backglass... and it's not.

Quoted from MrMikeman:

You also forgot side armor and you forgot powdercoat. These are features I enjoy. Powdercoating in my neck of the woods is super expensive.

Again, no I didn't. I did mention powder... but it's usually better to just new hardware then it is to ship it, strip it, and powder. I think you are just aren't familiar with what it actually involves.
