Quoted from digitaldocc:

I was watching the Hasbro animatronic one cycle through its built in animations and saw it had a dedicated force pose with his hand. How awesome would that be to trigger that animation when the magnet activates.
Anyone have any connections with hasbro?

Yea seems like every action is activated by touching it's head. If you could rework the wiring for whatever switch that is, I imagine someone could figure out a way to integrate it into the game. Something along the lines of sensing when an insert light turns on or some other state that changes that could then trigger the switch to make him move.

#2652 5 months ago

What add-on accessory will Stern sell to unlock a DLC mode? Will it be a UV light kit for night time battle scenes? Spinning robot bounty hunter topper? Bounty puck topper that projects onto the wall/ceiling for a "special mission"?

Hold on tight. I have spoken.

#2653 5 months ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

The possibility of this has me really excited. Would want speech from him and everything. Kind of like taunting from black knight. I want this to be the topper! What else would go well? No need for grogu as hes huge in the game. Maybe it could be the hockey puck contract with a hologram that would display your mission?

Needs a self destruct mode also where it splits in half and ducks low hiding underneath something .Is this asking too much ?lmao

Quoted from Akitostarwind:

Switch out the Yoda with the target one. It moves the head, ears, walks, moves arm. https://www.target.com/p/star-wars-the-child-feature-plush/-/A-80380386#lnk=sametab

That one screams Topper.

#2655 5 months ago

Well, I'm going to be very happy with the Mando Premium just the way it is. One day in, still excited!

Good friend looking into connecting it with the magnet itself so when it triggers it would also trigger the Grogo.

Without a single flip? Okay...

Which is crazier under the same circumstances. Not buying or buying?

Quoted from luckycreature:

Will they be available from stern when available?

Yes.

#2659 5 months ago

Just speculating about Encounters. What if they were not limited to JUST upper playfield shots? It would be cool if you had to hit all targets, then drain to the main pf for a few shots, then back to the upper to finish, or something like that. I'm thinking along the lines of Stranger Things Demogorgan modes. Yes, they are focused on the center toy, but some of the modes incorporate other shots in between. Five Demogorgan modes, and they all feel different, even though they are all based around a single shot. So hopefully all three Encounters will have a feel of their own, and maybe even incorporate different shots. That could add a lot of depth and mitigate the concerns that it's just a few stand-up targets on that upper. Just thinking out loud...

#2660 5 months ago
Quoted from metallik:

Flippers don't determine the price. Buyers do.

Eh, both can. Prices are driven by supply and demand. If scalpers are able to hoard enough units to choke supply, then they can impact prices even if demand doesn't change. Not sure that's really happening in this case, but flippers/scalpers absolutely can impact prices in some situations.

Also use that for things other than encounters. Like you have to hit the ball up there and hit the roving target for a super jackpot , like Kahn MB in shadow.

Quoted from Mr68:

Both I see no reason to preorder a Pro or Premium for personal use til I can play one.

Under different circumstances, I can see ops preordering to get the game on location before their peers.

LEs are a different beast, people are getting weird and paying 5K extra for bling, not my thing at all.

As long as you get an LE of a game no one cares about its cool. . Played a pro for a couple weeks, decided I liked the bones, went LE.

#2664 5 months ago
Quoted from GoodOmens:

Ok I screen grabbed this from the pro trailer. That is def not there on the pro version.
I also checked the Premium/LE video and I didn't see that as well. So maybe that was an early prototype they photo'd? Could have been a late feature pull then.
[quoted image][quoted image]

Yea sounds about right the prototype was probably supposed to move his hand but they decided to cost cut the $5 servo motor and plastic gears and wire harness, & of course not spend money on another photograph or photoshop(;

Lately I feel like the Stern LE pricing goes.

Announcement - Flippers and Scalpers.

Gameplay Stream - Prices return to somewhat normal.

LE's are delivered - Code isn't there quite yet so they go for at or below MSRP.

A few months to a year after release - Code is finished prices go back up.

Generally this had been the trend, obviously different games don't completely adhere to this but generally speaking, this is the way.

Just bought one to take apart and try to mod it in the game. Add a few relay boards so when the magnet energizes baby Yoda would go into force pose with his hand over the ball. And we could take it one step further and add a magnet in his hand to force pull it up then drop the ball. Other features could be when the spinner moves baby Yodas eyes would open and close. However, depends on what is inside the Hasbro baby Yoda. Other mods we plan to make is a Dark Saber ramp mod that would light up when the ball passes over it. Lots of modding potential with this game!

Dont say that out loud .Lmao

#2674 5 months ago

Not for me thank you, as the endless milking of Star Wars, in all forms possible, continues.....I originally was and still am a huge fan of the early movies. The game and playfield lay-out look good and so it will bring many happy family moments to does who are in. Still hoping for a really new original creative theme not based on a licensed rock group, movie or cartoon show. Probably I don't understand the pinball business model too well.

#2675 5 months ago
Quoted from zh2oson:

That's the LE. They are limited for a reason - to drive up demand. This is the result when demand is high and nobody needs a stupid LE Buy a premium instead or even *gasp* a lowly pro. Not only are they cheaper but not limited.

Are there 3 ramps on pro?

Trying to see where all the shots are, think I read there are 7 main shots.

Given how long it took for a SW topper to come out, it very well could have been a Disney decision. The Mouse giveth, the Mouse taketh away.

Correct on all counts. 7 main shots not counting the far right and left standups.

Two ramps are obviously visible, I think I see the third deep up the middle, where does that feed?

#2688 5 months ago
Quoted from jimwe5t:

Smog on your Hobbit is really a stationary figure too, but yet you like it.

I don’t think “stationary” means what you think it does. Smaug is an animated character. He turns, his mouth can open to various programmable degrees & is synched to his speech, and his eyes & mouth can light up with various effects. There’s nothing stationary about it.

#2689 5 months ago

So it really isn’t a ramp if it feeds the orbit I guess, does it change elevation? I saw the ramp flap figured maybe it was diverted somewhere.

#2690 5 months ago
Quoted from Psw757:

Through that razor crest target and around the back of Grogu. It exits out the front of the left orbit. If you zoom in on that area you can see where the ramp ends.

Think WH20.

Quoted from Psw757:

It elevates. It has to. To allow for full orbit shots.

#2692 5 months ago
Quoted from chuckwurt:

It elevates. It has to. To allow for full orbit shots.

Didn’t think about that, I thought I saw a full orbit shot in one of the videos. If it didn’t elevate and change path a bit why have the flap.

The ambush shot on the right appears to be a fast horseshoe type shot, am I seeing this correctly as well?

The pro does look pretty good in my opinion.

#2693 5 months ago

#2695 5 months ago

It loops back into the left orbit coming back toward the player.

#2696 5 months ago
Quoted from Psw757:

It’s not like the SW horseshoe. It’s a 3/4 horseshoe that throws the ball down the right orbit.

#2699 5 months ago

still confused about that ship hanging target. I've watched every video and they haven't showed it actually block the shot... I think its just like a switch that registers the shot and slightly shakes the ship, it doesn't have a blocked/unblocked state....

The way it’s hung it looks like it should do more but I don’t see any wires, might just swing like a pendulum.
