Quoted from kermit24:

I highly doubt you will be disappointed with he light shows when you play this game. Dwight makes amazing light shows.

I’m sure the shaker will be nuts too.

Quoted from delt31:

Forget LE - price is not worth it.

...but how are you gonna look at yourself and say “I’m an awesome dude who paid a flipper distro $14k!!” without a mirrored backglass?

#1753 7 months ago

Kudos to the folks who got the details right ahead of time... you know who you are! We appreciate your insights, even with the haters hating y'all

-No music from the show in release trailer but confirmed show music/audio in the game per Star Wars article.
-Assets from season 1 & season 2.
-Carl Weathers custom voice call-outs.
-Beskar trade-in for new armor/weapons/abilities.

However I didn't catch Bill Burr in the art package on any of the 3 versions... can anyone confirm?

#1754 7 months ago

If I could find a good location-I would buy a couple Pro's to put out. It will literally be a cash register for OP's

I was interested in an LE but after watching the reveal trailer I might be more interested in a pro and I’m considering sticking it in my mates bar to help him out and earn some coin as we are reopening indoor facilities soon here in the U.K.

Quoted from chooch:

Definitely not shadow 2.0 like everyone kept saying. I'm sure the game will be fun and they will sell a shit ton but if I was a huge Starwars or Mando fan I would be disappointed. Mini PF doesn't look exciting with 6 stationary targets and baby yoda is a doll with no interaction. My money is safe and I'll enjoy it on location. Now onto Godzilla and Keith.

Well said. Can't wait to play it at Helicon but need hands on. Pro is def looking like the front runner. Yoda does look good - just wish he did something. Upper pf is cool that it's on the pro but stand up targets suck. Good on stern to at least include it though

Can we please stop saying Yoda? His name is Grogu.

Burr is on there. Didn't grab a screenshot before the video was hidden, but right side of the playfield just above the sling.

#1759 7 months ago

For me the Pro would be the only way to go. The mini-pf on Premium/LE looks cringe worthy

At least on the Pro it is somewhat of a pass-thru mini pf

#1760 7 months ago

Looks boring as hell. A tilting mini playfield , a magnet and a doll? That's it? Pfffff

#1761 7 months ago

Regarding drop targets....I am not sure how you can put drop targets on a rotating PF like that. The mech would be too big to fit.

Yes stop calling him Yoda....it's Baby Yoda.

#1763 7 months ago

Is the target below/next to razor crest a swinging target? Looks different.

rarehero has it right. “Pros is for them Hoes”. This is not the way

#1765 7 months ago

Yes, Bill Burr.

Alrighty, but only cuz you love Bill Burr so much.

This should work:

#1768 7 months ago

Static Baby Yoda does seem a bit of a missed opportunity.

#1769 7 months ago

premium got steel wireforms, pro only plastic?

Maybe he is Bill Burr?

#1771 7 months ago

Can't believe I'm saying this but I think Stranger Things Pro looks cooler.

#1774 7 months ago

Best part of this thread is all the Carl Weathers discussions-it put a smile on my face, I wish I could say the same about the game.

#1775 7 months ago

Okay, this looks better than I was fearing/expecting. Fan layout. Art looks good (Prem better than LE, as usual). Pro might be the way to go as well if you don't care about the PF flipping up.

#1776 7 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

“The show really lends itself to some good story-based game mechanics. As Mando grows as a bounty hunter, he acquires more weapons and equipment. In our game, you are Mando. You start the game with a flamethrower that can catch shots on fire. As you play, you will be able to acquire more equipment to help you on your journey. In this pinball adventure, players will be able to use the Razor Crest to enable different multiballs, start different missions, bounty hunts, and ambushes to collect beskar to trade at the Foundry, and start several different encounters in the upper playfield battleground area. Grogu is able to assist you by activating different features and, if you’re a true pinball wizard, you can work your way to the ultimate wizard mode: This is the Way.”

"This is the Way", ahhh the Ultimate Wizard Mode I shall never see...hopefully they trick it out like JP so us mortals can experience it!

Quoted from woody76:

Pro is probably best bang for buck but the large plastic cross ramps are terrible. Put the Premium wireforms on the pro and you got a winner.

THIS!

I actually like the art on the Pro better.

Wow! All the interactive mechs and rotating playfield on the premium look awesome. I missed out on an LE, but now I can bide my time and maybe get a premium down the road if the game plays as good as it looks. So cool to have Brian Eddy back in the mix!!

#1782 7 months ago

I do like the art on the Pro and the Premium is not bad either.

The armor on the LE looks bad ass! Love those side rails! Really digging the art too!

The art blades are really cool as well.

Someone should make the wireforms as mods.
I'd buy 'em!

Sidebar, I wonder if Favreau's gets a cut from the license fee. He seems like a pretty smart cookie!

#1786 7 months ago

so a magnet under Grogu, an extra diverter on one ramp that probably feeds balls into the back of the bigger razor crest (that has a coil in it that probably makes it flip to release balls?) and a mini PF that looks like... crap... I am typically all over premiums but it does not seem 'this is the way' for this game...

LE is easily the best art package for once... congrats Stern!

#1790 7 months ago

So 5 main modes from the show, across two seasons of content, and that's it? Hopefully the encounter modes with multiple levels are great. 4 wizard modes is great to see!

Looks like the Grogu magnet acts as the pops for the C-H-I-L-D rollovers.

How many times do I have to tell you, it’s a pinball machine, not a complete show. LOTR has 7 modes for 9 hours or movie. It’s pinball.

That being said, the mode inserts don’t have text on them. So there might be more modes, but you only have to do 5 from a stockpile of more to get to that mini wiz mode.

The rifle side armor very cool, the "big head" art blades not so much.

Quoted from pinmister:

Not feeling it-dammit
Love the theme and have an LE, but looks like a pass for me
When I heard upper playfield-I cringed a bit
I can't stand gimmicky upper/lower playfields. Then I was all stoked for the Pro-cool color scheme and art-then dammit another useless mini-playfield. If this is the way-you can have it.
[quoted image]

Yep, I have to agree. I just don't like mini playfields, and this one looks to be a major part of the pin. It looks pretty good overall, but that mini pf makes this a non-starter for me. And I can't even escape it by buying the pro. Bummer.

#1796 7 months ago

For insiders it looks like they have two audio panel discussions up as well.

#1797 7 months ago

That wireform to replace the plastic ramp would be pretty easy to make. I may have to look into it.

#1798 7 months ago

It looks like the upper on the Prem/LE does rotate while you flip, like the ship on JJPPOTC, which should make it a little more interesting and challenging. But they really could have done more than a bank of stand-ups.

#1799 7 months ago
Quoted from Happy81724:

I don’t see pop bumpers either.

They are just below Grogu.

#1800 7 months ago

I want an LE. Help.
