Quoted from Kkoss24:

If you don’t mind Jack if you were pressed to pick pro or prem $ not being a issue what would it be ?

Tough call. I don’t have the time on the Prem that I do on the pro. I reaaaally enjoyed the pro tho!

Ive been back n forth just from viewing what’s been out .My issue is with both kids getting they’re braces Im left having to sell if I purchase this year lmao .I was hoping they would be done with Family Guy to make things easy but got a “hell no” when I asked lmao.Thanks Jack I guess it’s not like the worlds ending anytime soon .Man this hobby is insane but where there’s a will there’s a way .This is the way .

#4703 6 months ago

I think the audio/visual was really nice. Great sounds. Also an interesting layout. Looking forward to my pro for location. Should be here soon.

Based simply on two streams, I'm not seeing enough of an upgrade to justify the additional $1700 jump from Pro to Premium. I'm a little bummed that Grogu wasn't utilized more on the playfield, but the random magnet certainly isn't moving me towards Premium. Overall I found myself locked in watching this Pro stream and I'm excited to play

#4706 6 months ago

Watching the stream at any point did the two green targets on the right get activated or are they not coded yet? Game looks great, MUCH better stream this time! Only very minor objection is the stop play of the foundry. Wish it didn't stall play so much or just awarded random.

Well I'm not worried about every LE and Premium not finding a good home. But Stern will be quite happy with the Pro bring as popular, if not more. And if you 'reaaally' enjoyed the Pro, then you have spoken!

Yeah i’m new but learning .I’m going to try not to visualize what I want in a pin before it’s revealed from now on .These people put a lot of work into these and nobody knows anything about what guided them one way or another on decisions ,only they know .Honestly ,when out on locations flipping I do not believe Ive ever played a game only once . Yes I like some better than others and yes code depth is a factor but the best thing is they’re all different .Sometimes I want to play a long deep game and others I just want a basic game to not have to think so much and just have fun .Bottom line pinheads are finally “spoiled “ with choices .Let’s keep that in mind

#4709 6 months ago

No i have not played Thunderbirds yet .

#4710 6 months ago

I'm wondering if grogu really does move, but they have it turned off for these. So that way when you play at home on location you get that WOW moment like when you first saw star wars. Maybe wishful thinking, but would be cool if it were a surprise

#4711 6 months ago

Pro is the way

The Pinside obsession with the doll moving has me a bit concerned.

Considering we're all playing with arcades and pinballs, I'd say it's a healthy obsession!

#4714 6 months ago

I’m pretty sure I saw Grogu doing the Macarena in one of the modes.

Both streams we have now are presented very differently. I don't really see the pro mini pf area as being better at all. The moving mini pf is quite unique and very interesting. Im sure it will be quite fun to play and different. The small area on the normal pf on the pro gives more of a wasted area feeling to me.

#4718 6 months ago

Loved the stream. Couldn't help but notice a 5s or so load time each time entering the foundry. Think this could be improved in code?

#4719 6 months ago

Just watch 10 minutes to confirm my choice, Pro will be fine. Great assets, ambiance will be huge.

By the way i find the multiball a little bit easy or simple to lit ? Backhand razor crest lane and go.

Can't wait anymore to have mine, hope the production is fine right now

GO !

I hope you can make it harder in the settings

It would be cool if the static Mando on the screen got upgrades as the game continues and you spend at the foundry.

Same for

Also hope so, would like this set to hard from the outset.

#4723 6 months ago

Does the game seem too shallow? Looked like JD could've easily gotten to This is the Way. Only 5 main missions and as was pointed out, easy to light Razer Crest multiballs. Outlanes at mid position, maybe open them up.

Code seemed pretty complete on top of that. Not sure if there's room for a lot more?

#4725 6 months ago

If it’s like SW and GOT, it won’t be deep on the surface. The depth comes from all the different ways to attack the game.

I thought the same thing currently it seems you can just shoot the center. Live catch and do it again for multi ball, hopefully that gets changed.

But when will they ship?

Said in the stream that the first game ready to be shipped had been signed yesterday by Stern folks..so, just about now?

Would be a great menu option

Xaqery ?

#4730 6 months ago

Awarded random? Horrible idea. But having it adjustable I’m fine with. As long as it’s not default.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Not such a horrible idea if it speeds up gameplay. But that’s why it’s good as a menu option - you won’t have to select it if you don’t want.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Yeah, I like the idea of building my character. If they can start incorporating some rpg video game type and you can build your stats that would be awesome. It would be even cooler if they make a pin that i can Save my profile and grow my characters abilities and stats as I play it more and more.

#4733 6 months ago

I keep flip-flopping on which model I may like.

After watching the Pro stream, I think I may like the action of the rotating pf on Premium/LE more than Pro? I can already tell I will love the gameplay with the awesome video and music assets. The Pro looks fun, but not sure I like the plastic ramps obstructing view and the mini-pf does not seem to have a strategy? Not many themes left that I feel I am interested in and Star Wars is one of the best-if not the best theme in all of pinball-so there is that.

Thanks again Jack for streaming, it looks like a great game and I love the overall package.

Brown is the way?

I like the weapons buying to begin with, but I could see it becoming repetitive or worse, that one or two weapons are unbalanced “weapons of choice” that you always pick. Random selection would force you to try all weapons eventually and add an element of surprise, especially if you’ve owned the game for a while.

#4736 6 months ago

But what about not having enough beskar, or not wanting to even buy something?

#4737 6 months ago

[quoted image]

I think either the orange, the brown and the grey is the way. The game looks great fun at it's core, so whatever game you end up picking won't be a bad choice, IMO..

Owning any flavor of the new Mandalorian pinball? No issue there!

#4738 6 months ago

Love , Love , Love the video animations that sync with modes. Very well done and I am lovin it!

Star Wars>crack

Just a tip maybe relevant maybe not, in case you did not know. Check with your insurance there's sometimes a one-time orthodontist benefit of $2000. I believe it is a health insurance benefit not dental insurance if yours is separate, but check them both as it's been years since i used mine. Good luck!

#4740 6 months ago

There did seem to be a very long (in pinball terms) load time for the shop when you hit it.

#4741 6 months ago

I’m ok with this is the way being somewhat obtainable . Not sure it’s as easy as we think , Jack is a very good player and had the tilt pretty loose!

He had it disabled lol. Agreed he’s Not your average player so I have no concerns with easy.

He did show the tilt off a few times

Lol. Yes he had to stick his hand in the machine to activate it. All good I want to see game play doesn’t need to be a rules test.

It'd be great if the scoop just shoots the ball out like TNA (like, IMMEDIATELY) , yelling at you "Come back when you have the money, hobo!!!" XD

My wife used something like that .She’s got the big bill lmao don’t want to get into that i know women have a tougher time with teeth later in life .It’s draining me I’ll be shaken by the ankles for some time but we’ll get through it .Cash is King ,Orthos are no exception

#4747 6 months ago

man the pro stream was awesome!!!! The polish now on the game is so fantastic - I'm super excited!

#4748 6 months ago

I have to admit...that pro upper pf looks a little more fun to me with the nudging and only one flipper. The tilting is a cool trick, but honestly seemed like it might be more frustrating than fun. Biggest thing I would miss on the prem/LE would be that scoop ramp, but that shot without the ramp looks so fun I might not miss it. Can't wait to play!

Could be alot later then you would think. Stay tuned.
