Quoted from Rarehero:

Can anyone think of a game that has a large plastic crossover? I’m drawing a blank.

Road Kings and Full Throttle (kind of)

Quoted from nicoy3k:

Am I the only one who doesn’t give a crap about this? The most expensive stern (Elvira) has plastic ramps. Just about every recent pro has had wire forms. From a cost standpoint I find it hard to believe there is actually a real difference. I thought we were passed believing wire forms were somehow more “premium”... but I guess not. I’m sure there will be a mod for this lol

Left ramp on Elvira is metal with a plastic return. Centre ramp into the house is metal? Not sure on that one

#2803 6 months ago

I just heard that Stern is running the LE's first this time. Have they ever run LE's before Pro's?

#2804 6 months ago

Avengers IQ LE's were run first .

#2805 6 months ago

Looks like you can short plung into Mandos head on the pro.

And seems the center ramp to left orbit has a ball stop coil at the end of the plastic for the mission break.

I'm in on a pro.

struggling between really wanting this game and thinking it’s a turd. I love the look of the game (minus yoda doll) and the layout feels unique and packed... but when I dissect it every shot is basic and the upper pf might have the fewest “shots” of any upper of I’ve ever seen, It feels like it’s missing that one super satisfying unique shot and is relying on a potentially bad mini pf too much.... seems like code and presentation is going to make or break this game

I think you're wrong on the shots, but we need to see some gameplay.

It certainly isn‘t a turd. It looks absolutely fun to shoot. Only the theme integration is partially questionable.

(Let‘s ballface Mando, yeah! )

Pros start on Monday

Not true. Pros will be done first this month. Then LEs early June. Then Prems late June.

#2811 6 months ago

I’m glad people are excited about this title. This pretty much sums up my attitude on the whole Star Wars franchise at this point...

#2813 6 months ago
Quoted from Yoko2una:

I was selling my ACDC Luci around a month ago and was contacted by Brooke of the Pinball Company. Many back and forths to set up shipping and whatnot. I then looked them up and I think on their website they had used ACDC Pros for $10K and non-Luci Prem's for $13K.
When I saw that I immediately stopped replying. I get retailers need to make a profit but a used ACDC Pro for $10K is absurb and they can F right off with that. I didn't want my Luci going to those types of people.
Not surprised they're jacking up LE prices. They seem like the people who would do it most. People should stop buying from them.

You can buy a South Park from them for $8K.

They will stay on the phone with you though, for as long as it takes for you to accept your buyers remorse and just get the f—k on with your life.

I saw this too in an e-mail from a distributor but all others I have talked to said Pros are first as usual.

Stern army webinar with Gary Stern said May pros, June for LEs and then Prems.

This was the same webinar that was shown to the distros. My guess is some we’re not paying attention.

#2816 6 months ago

Looks fast and flowy. Nice.

#2817 6 months ago

Jack danger will be doing a live stream of Mandalorian at 6:00 this Friday on twitch

#2818 6 months ago

This Friday the 14th?

Quoted from swinks:

I made these shooter knobs available if you want to customise your game a little - available in professionally solid filled nylon or metal

I wonder if that polished nickel steel woudl match the LE armour color?

#2820 6 months ago

What a sleazy world the LE collecting game is.

Upper playfields that don't have at least a loop, a ball lock, or something that reveals another shot seem worthless in my opinion (at least at these crazy prices). Hitting 6 standup targets from 3" away is going to get old really fast. Also, what the heck does the upper playfield represent? Mando doesn't have lights on the top of his helmet or down the center of it. Just odd and feels like a waste of an area / mech.

#2823 6 months ago

I was told July/August for my premium and Im at the top of the list for premiums Im told. Maybe distributor just wanted to be conservative. But I do need to sell a game to make room so hope I can get advanced notice of when its ready.

Believe it or not, some in that world just love the package, believe Eddy has delivered a ton of fun, and can’t wait to enjoy it.

AcDc mini PF was way better and with short flippers loops and stand up shots, I can't see how much fun this can be but only wait and see how it plays.

Agree, having that loop and being able to hit either mini orbit is fun (just wish it was coded more into the game).

I hope there is a nice surprise in there and that baby yoda really moves a bit and tracks the ball.

In all likelyhood, I think Stern is probably going to sell an accessory that makes baby Yoda slightly interactive in the next 3 months or so and spring it on us like they did with the Stranger things UV lighting kit.

#2828 6 months ago
Quoted from digitaldocc:

I found the hasbro teardown video for those who are curious to see how the animatronic toy ticks. If you skip to timecode 11:00 you can see the head sensor. If you tap his head 3 times it activates the force pose.

Anyone know if it's possible to somehow trigger the force pose on the hasbro toy with the child magnet on the pin?

Could be attached to a switch !

Late June for Prems per stern. That can easy be early August based on prior schedules.

Y’know what would be super swell? If we could stop asking what lights have to do with Mando’s helmet.

#2831 6 months ago

Whomever gets these games first, go immediately into the feature adjustments and look for anything related to the Grogu figure. Could be an indication of a feature add on like the UV kit.

#2832 6 months ago

Does anyone know a distributor who has LEs available? My distributor, who I got on the list with in April, has gone silent and isn't returning my emails and messages. Not sure what's going on. Not interested in those who are flipping the game for 14k-16k.

Nope, but I also didn't "struggle with thinking it's a turd." Sorry if I hurt your fee-fees.

Eh if I thought that way about a game that I haven't played yet, I would definitely pause.

sounds like I hit a nerve, keep dishing out the advice though

#2842 6 months ago

Brian Eddy called Gorgu "a "fun integration" and he's a grown man like most of us here. I doubt Mr. Eddy thinks a static doll is fun. Or if he does, that's ok too. Seems to me, Gorgu is more than what it looks like at first glance. Next Friday we will know I guess during the gameplay reveal.

#2843 6 months ago

I wonder if that uplift target under the Razor Crest is there to prevent SDTM drains for balls coming back down that lane. Looks like there may be a horizontal post that keeps the target from swinging toward the player, thus acting like a one-way gate.

Idk, I love Swords of Fury and this (especially the pro) reminds me of that

just like when turtles code spoiled the topper release heh

#2847 6 months ago

People cannot complain if Stern jack their prices up on the next release, with the insanity of FOMO driving $16000 price.

750 is not really limited, but who cares when you have money to burn obviously

#2848 6 months ago

its pretty limited as so many of us missed out....depends on the theme and the demand really

LE’s are sold out. And to play devils advocate, no one is paying “MSRP” from a distro. By the time you get done paying taxes, shipping, and markup most (not all, like your brothers co-workers aunts pinochle partner) people are out of pocket 12k on an LE to begin with. Everyone looks at $9,199 and thinks, oh that person is marking it up 40-50% immediately.... which just is not the case (in most cases)

#2850 6 months ago

Has anyone posted a shot map? Which shot goes to Grogu?
