No final price listed, hopefully not over MSRP.

JJ doesn't pull that shit. Great distributor.

I misread the listing, price is listed at $9200!

Agreed in with him !

How many Stern LE’s have been over 700? Just Star Wars and Star Trek? Both have never held up very well in terms of resale value - I mean in comparison other games. They’re always available if you want one.

I personally don’t care and this is a unique market situation…..especially for us down here. I put my name down mostly because I want a new game. If you want a new Stern game from our distributor at the moment, of any title in any flavor, you have to wait until early 2022 for availability. At least buying an LE you get it in 2-3 months.

What price did they have the LEs listed at?

$9199. I luckily got one of their avail LE's

STLE cost $7700 do you see them selling for less? I’ve sold two with mods for $8200

Quoted from rai:

Up until recently they’ve absolutely underperformed compared to most games and are available fairly regularly on the “open” market ie. You don’t have to know someone to get one.

Personally I don’t understand it as I think it’s one of Sterns best, no question. But there’s a lot available, and I get the feeling noobs don’t appreciate it for some reason.

Same with Star Wars, though recently to a lesser extent - theme is more mainstream and it has an lcd.

Quoted from mrm_4:

As soon as Kathleen Kennedy is out of the picture Star Wars is going to be amazing again.

As soon as Kathy Kennedy is gone, we will all be excited again about the future of Star Wars. The only reason Mando did better and has begun to restore excitement in the SW universe, is because that egotist K.K. had almost nothing to do with it. Fabero hid from KK the ending with Luke in it till it was too late for Kathy to sabotage a great ending for season 2. John single handedly has returned interest in SW, where Kathleen pretty much destroyed it. Get rid of her and her ilk, Disney asap.

If Walt were around, Kathleen Kennedy would have been fired long time ago. What a mess of a person.

SWLE does not offer much extra value over a premium and there were 800 made. I'd go pro if I ever bought that game again.

Im really interested to find out if OS and hardware has levelled up.

I believe newer spike main boards now have a faster cpu.

I agree with the above statement, but these two need to get back together and then we’d really have some compelling story boards similar to “A New Hope” and “Empire Strikes Back.”

LOL, don't they? They put the GnR's up $1000AUD inbetween shipments over here. And the build issues ive seen on the GNR's has been pretty bad too - I think all the who-Har about how great JJ are is beginning to look very overrated

#1165 7 months ago

will the art hit or miss??

He’s talking about JJ the person/distributor who owns Game Exchange not Jersey Jack.

JJ doesn’t own it yet. Not till he knocks off his old man.

No matter, this comment about JJP is right on the money...overrated and not worth the very high prices they are charging. Build issues galore with GNR and many of the machines they build (JJP was smart to have no mechs in GNR or it would be even worse, although no mechs for the consumer is not so good). One thing we can be hopefully happy over, is the build quality of Mando should be a great deal better. At least I’m hoping so.

Im in Canada and im seeing the miscommunication from here

#1171 7 months ago

Yes...in America, one letter makes a HUGE difference. JJ is a great guy who runs Game Exchange and sets up Pinside meet and greets at shows across the country. JJP is the pinball company who, if you're to be believed, jacks up prices on Australian shipments. They don't call him Jersey Jack for nothin'!

Really? I mean, really? Not seeing it based on track record or incentive. Hell, Stern just sold out of possible wooden boxes full of nothing for the LE’s. No reveal. No one knows nuthin.

That being said, yes, I’m hopeful.
Those excited for this title need a winner.

#1173 7 months ago

Always the Pro. Deposit is in. I have spoken......

Quoted from mrm_4:

I honestly think that Star Wars will go the same route that X-Men did with eventually having an alternate timeline, after the originals x-men first class changed the timeline. Star Wars has a type of “time travel” now that was introduced in Rebels with the “World between Worlds” and because the 7-9 episodes ended as such a shit show Dave Filoni can easily retcon the sequel trilogy by using the connection of Ashoka in The Mandalorian series since she’s the one who used it with Ezra. As soon as Kathleen Kennedy is out of the picture Star Wars is going to be amazing again.

Farveau alone did wonders for Marvel kicking it off with Iron Man (technically the Hulk, but that movie was ok). He's already begun with Star Wars. We need a Happy Hogan movie now. Everyone loves Happy.

How do you know you were "lucky" to get one when we have not seen a single picture yet?

Is it purely based on theme?

Based on Brian Eddy as the designer?

Based on FOMO?

Serious question... What is the benefit of pre ordering a pro? Is there a price break? I know there used to be price breaks for bulk buys and such if you ordered early...

You ensure you get a first run pro and don’t have to wait until 2022?

Quoted from Oaken:

Makes sense. Is the first pro run smaller? Then you have to wait for LE's and prem's to be done? Pros don't run side by side with the other models?

Because I want one now (I might die soon) and the Pro is always best. Every time.....

Ok....this is the perfect playfield art for the next Stern pin...” Family Vacation”

#1183 7 months ago

I would typically buy a Pro, but I am hesitating and waiting for the reveal. Brian Eddy is what is selling it for me. IF, there is an upper playfield (based solely on the speculation of a Shadow like upper PF) and that is missing on the Pro, I'll go for a Premium.
But for me, it has to be an upper PF with a full sized ball. If it is a PF like Munsters with a mini ball, no thanks.

Since TMNT I believe they have been making very small runs of Pros for demo and bars (some make it to consumers). If you miss the first decent run of Pros you can be waiting a long time, same for Premiums.

Brian Eddy is a design master, I highly doubt he will choose to incorporate a mini pf or ball, ever. Imo mini playfields are a waste of space and waste a big chunck of the BoM.

Good point. Brian Eddy would never, ever use a mini playfield in one of his designs.

Yeah I mean he has never, ever, not even once, done an upper playfield.

#1194 7 months ago

Jeez we gotta wait till Tuesday to get photos of this thing.!?

I just put a deposit on the mini upper playfield only.

Ramps that go up and behind the playfield maybe in games he's been affiliated with. (Black Rose)

Quoted from mbrave77:

You mean the Grogu upper playfield

#1198 7 months ago

I hope the upper playfield isnt grogu, maybe its the razor crest or slave 1 . I dunno. cant wait to see it

#1199 7 months ago

I'm wondering about the layout....So we know the game has a drop ramp like Stranger Things, I bet the Razor Crest is on the side and the ramp drops to let you go to the upper pf? Rumors has it the mini pf spins, I think what they meant was it rotates not spin. Maybe a few degrees like The Shadow diverters but still seems like a lot of engineering for what exactly? To shoot down different paths?

#1200 7 months ago

If stern does a game without pop bumpers i might have to buy in on this thing.
