Quoted from Pin_Fandango:

honest, I have not seen any toys from any mod company that has the definition or quality that you see in the OEM toys of a Jersey Jack for example.

Like the axle skeleton figure in GR!
What a piece of shit!
Looks breakable !

Quoted from Mando:

Threw caution to the wind and made a impression video . Don’t roast me too hard

I put up with the first four minutes of your video and I do not share your views

#2393 5 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Dude I just bought a TMNT Premium today instead of Mando so for once stop with your lies and nonsense. A game doesn't have to have a JJP logo on it for me to buy (also have a GNR LE on order and can't wait). Why did I go with TMNT Premium over Mando? Layout and toys. I'm not interested in owning a $6k - $9k+ pin with a giant doll of all things that does nothing, hell even the terrible troll doll in Roller Coaster Tycoon does something. The giant target hanging from the razer crest looks odd and ugly, it's almost as large as the ship. Third is the upper mini playfield which is not interesting in my opinion, it will get stale quick with only a bunch of standup targets, and looks very odd being Mando's helmet with a bunch of lights. Mando may turn out to be incredible but right now it's just not hitting with me.
The problem I have with Mando is unlike TMNT, GB, Jurassic Park, and GNR is that it does a poor job of representing the themes world under glass. That giant baby Yoda is ugly and was put there to simply scream "HERE'S BABY YODA". Again there's a huge ugly target hanging from the razer crest versus the ship itself interacting with the ball. The upper mini playfield is for some reason Mando's helmet with a bunch of lights inserts on it? So random and odd.

Blah blah blah ba blah!

Quoted from Bellystyle:Thanks for the info.
So Todd is old and doesn't realize what he's saying at 3 min on his new video?

You are correct sir!

#3294 5 months ago
Quoted from orangestorm87:So any chance of getting an le from a distributor at this point? Friend just saw this and is a huge fan. Or are le's all sold out?
If not any tips on a distributor with some left? Pm if you don't want share publicly.
Otherwise I'm just going to give him a list of distributors to call one by one.

Place a wanted add with what he is willing to pay

All a matter of opinion

Quoted from TigerLaw:

Well, it’s all subjective of course and GOT is certainly a good game... Lyman has coded more of what are generally considered masterpieces than any other coder (likely all other modern coders combined, frankly)...I don’t think anyone can reasonably deny that. Keith would be in second place.

all a matter of opinion!

Quoted from Darscot:

My kids have seen all that stuff but Star Wars they just suffer it as Dad movie, it doesn't resonate with them. We watch Die Hard at Christmas every year but I could never get them to sit through a Star Wars. Marvel, Harry Potter, Disney, even Pokemon but Star Wars, no chance.

Crazy glue their knickers they will sit through it

Time check 5:00 pm eastern ???? For dead flip stream Correct ?

#3928 5 months ago
Quoted from PanzerFreak:

So only partial assets? No show actor voices from any of the episodes? Very disappointed. A pin named Mandalorian but no Mandalorian audio clips from the show.

broken record!

Quoted from iceman44:

I think Dwight’s history is relevant to the Mando discussion? That’s why it keeps coming up

I am happy with My Star Wars TMNT and GB
See no reason not to be happy with my new mando! All coded by Dwight!

Quoted from pinmister:Weird question here....has anyone ever had luck asking Stern to do a special build? I think I like the Premium art the best but thinking I may like the Pro layout. Wondering if I threw Stern several hundred bucks-would they make a special machine with Premium art cabinet and Pro playfield? I know the answer is probably no(especially with 5 month back-log) but it would be cool. Just an afterthought and sometimes money talks.

I like the art on the premium but prefer the Full color Of the pro art package the prem has a little too much brown for me. It’s just a personal opinion. All three art packages are awesome !

Quoted from John1210:don't really see the pro mini pf area as being better at all.

I do ! One less thing to break and trouble shoot!

#4882 4 months ago
Quoted from dinot:

I am with you. I am so used to super-bands that I find playing on regular rubber to be a different experience. I have better ball control with super-bands and I have no issues with dead bounces.
What I don't like about super-bands are actually getting the flipper rubber on. OMG this is a pain(ful). I also use super-bands on most of my rubber rings. I like their translucent looks.
The only place I've stopped using them is on the 5/16 and 3/8 sizes. I just cannot get them onto the posts. I will use the silicone rubber from Pinball Life for those.

Soak in hot/ warm water before installing!

#4929 4 months ago
Quoted from pinchamp:

I did this to my Indy. Just realizing now that the side art colours are actually really similar to Mando Pro. May work for some. I’ll keep my Mando black for sure. I really didn’t like the stainless steel on my Indy though.

Brass that bitch!

Game defiantly needs a shaker! I have spoken!

#6061 3 months ago

Shooter rod assembly if someone wanted to add it to their game.

#6229 3 months ago
Quoted from tdiddy:

trying to figure out a way to reinforce the sakes

If they were pined.
Basically a nail up thru stake.
If you could print them hollow and insert a nail or metal pin Up thru bottom with rubber cement I believe that would keep them from snapping off.

#6234 3 months ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

Imbedding it in block of clear lexan and internally lighting it would be cool. Could even make it look like a static sand storm in the lexan.

Cool idea but doesn’t help strengthen the stakes.

#6235 3 months ago

I helped a buddy set up his LE tonight and wow that backglass Is F’n awesome !

Quoted from rockrand:

I would not be surprised if we see premiums at scalpers prices,like le game are

#6376 3 months ago
Quoted from KozMckPinball:

How does it hold up is there any usage wear? Maybe it could be clear coated?

$15 bucks
Just buy another!

#6393 3 months ago
Quoted from Happy81724:

100 percent. I wish the stern Star Wars we would of enjoyed too. It would be great to have another one as close to as fun as mando. We absolutely love it

I like my mando pro but it ain’t no SW pro!

#6446 3 months ago
Quoted from mphizzle:

This is my first pinball I have ever owned and really enjoy the game! However, I am having an issue with one of the scoring mechs. Anytime I use a flipper scoring occurs and one of the red flashers towards Grogu lights up as well. The flasher is at the top left on the playing field. Not sure if it’s a setting or something I can adjust. Any help on how to fix this would be great. High score pic is an example of some unrealistic scoring.
[quoted image]

With your fist Bang on play field with glass off.
If it adds to score check switch adjustments as one or more may be over adjusted!

#6448 3 months ago
Quoted from GeekedOnPinball:

Had a premium on order but its a few weeks late (like everyone else’s) and ended up taking home a Pro after playing the LE. Just wasn’t sure that upper playfield was worth the extra money. It seemed like the pro would be much more friendly to newer players as I had a hell of a time keeping the ball up there with two flippers but on the pro with the single flipper and nudging it feel more fun, less... frantic. I am really impressed with this pro as it feels more full than other recent pro machines. What a beautiful machine regardless of the version. Very excited to have joined the Mando club. .

I’ve played pro and LE
Both play very similar! I’d give Le the nod on upper playfield . But for the money pro is great bang for the buck. If money is no issue LE all day as that back glass is priceless !!!!

#6470 3 months ago
Quoted from Raiders36:

I like the wire instead of plastic on the LE as well. I assume it is same for premium

A pinside buddy of mine came to play my pro ,
He read all the wire ramps vs. plattic ramps Comments and he commented that plastic ramps were non issue when playing game didn’t even notice them.

Hi guys, just reviewed the Mando LE with 6,5 score out of 10, link to the video

Quoted from dinot:

Here are some initial pics. I'll get more (and better) pics once I move this into my gameroom. Right now it is in my modding staging area (which is outside my gameroom) which is a total mess when I work on machines.
So far I've installed
- powder coated parts
- orange t-moulding
- shooter rod
- Pinsound linelevel output (for connecting to amp and subwoofer)
- upgraded 5 1/4" speakers (Polk DB521)
- amplifier (backbox speakers)
- speaker light kit
- subwoofer (Klipsch 12")
- Lighted buttons
- Most of the rubber with superbands
- Flipper toppers
- Invisiglass (Not on yet, I leave that for last)
I have the Wizard mods sideblades, but those have been stuck in customs in Miami for over 3 weeks, which also means I can't install my pinstadiums yet.

Is that stern shooter rod? Or another vender?

Quoted from dinot:

Got that from hookedonpinball

As did I that’s why I asked.

#6647 3 months ago
Quoted from Saltimbanco:

I was wondering the same thing, how big is it compared to the static Grogu, any pic of both next to eachother?

About same height but static head is smaller

Quoted from Saltimbanco:

I'm definitely following this! Also, an airbrush artist could probably make the plastic animatronic look a bit more realistic, once (if) we get there!

The animatronic looks very realistic. Stern Static one looks more like a toy.

Quoted from ChrisLIX:

Someone knows when Stern will start the next batch of Pro's exactly?

I heard August delivery

#6667 3 months ago
Quoted from Lermods:

Interesting, it’s pretty tame in my game, kind of like a light rumble, which is how I like them. I got mine from cointaker, but I think it’s a stern shaker. Stock settings.

Yours is a pro
He has le
My buddies Le will rattle your teeth
My pro has Pinball life shaker and is a nice rumble!

It sucks that they only had the Premiums on the line for 1 week.

Keeps it interesting!

Mine is holding strong with hot glue. That might not be the best option if it burns out but she's holding.

It’s an LED it will out live you!

Quoted from Hangry:

When I launch the ball, not a full draw back, for a sneaky skill shot as an example, it will launch get to where the right orbit and chute meet and it will rattle around die out and drop down. Does it about 75% of the time. Full power or action button launch it will be flawless. I’ve gotten down and watched it, and don’t see a reason for it. Shooting rod is nice and straight. Idk if it’s putting some English on the ball and making it bounce around or what.
Is anyone else having this issue?

Adjust your shooter rod.
Make sure it hits ball square on center.
Auto plunge is Separate unit

Quoted from Yesh23:

Mando pro question. I just bought the premium/LE wire forms for me pro. I assume this serves no purpose and I remove it off the wire form for the pro
[quoted image]

Might be a great place to add / mount a mod.
