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 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
Cuts out the BUZlL shitZ
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!
Crazy glue their knickers they will sit through it
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 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!
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!
Can one of you fine artistic photo shop guys put the stern side armor accessory on the pro so we can see what it will look like
Thanks in advance freddy
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.
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!
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 !!!!
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.
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 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!
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.
