Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Right...but Space Mountain sucked when I was 8 because Walt was no longer in charge.
It sucks even worse now! Some idiot added speakers!
And the churros seemed stale at the cart outside.

Yes, but during Halloween, Space Mountain turn into “Ghost Galaxy” and it becomes one of the best rides ever. FACT.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

I've heard some very positive things from a non pinball family member on the art.
That was unusual, and a nice surprise.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

No, it's not released, and I haven't seen it.
But family works at Disney/Marvel in the area, where it crossed.

Pics/details or it didn’t happen, please.

Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

If I did, it would cost my niece her job.....

Just ask your niece if she sees a picture of a
“less-angry Rosie O’Donnell” (no names needed) on the playfield art package.
Just a yes or no.

Quoted from Parzival:

New pinball machine announcements are fun! I am trying to get in on a LE, but tough to find.
Cheers all, and hopefully the game is great!

Hold up...is there some sort of soft number the distributors have gotten regarding their allocation of LEs from Stern (is it the same number from their previous LE purchases?)? What’s the total of LEs being produced and how many are leaving the USA (usually half,right?). How do folks know they are getting an LE when the number hasn’t even been announced or is this all speculation?

#1044 8 months ago
Quoted from mbrave77:

Ive been told by my distributor im not getting an LE based on their allocation numbers. So I guess they have been told. And I got on the list in mid April so I guess they arent getting as many as they were hoping for. Now Im trying to find one elsewhere but will probably have to settle for a premium which is fine.

Got it. I’m guessing stern will keep the number of LEs to somewhere between 600 to 800 and if there is still “blood in the water” Stern will make another limited run that is green or boba fett themed. Similar to AC/DC LE and Luci, Batman and Catwoman, or Spider-Man and black/comic so those will still be able to get something limited/different later.

Quoted from jimwe5t:

As soon as Kathy Kennedy is gone, we will all be excited again about the future of Star Wars. The only reason Mando did better and has begun to restore excitement in the SW universe, is because that egotist K.K. had almost nothing to do with it. Fabero hid from KK the ending with Luke in it till it was too late for Kathy to sabotage a great ending for season 2. John single handedly has returned interest in SW, where Kathleen pretty much destroyed it. Get rid of her and her ilk, Disney asap.
If Walt were around, Kathleen Kennedy would have been fired long time ago. What a mess of a person.

I agree with the above statement, but these two need to get back together and then we’d really have some compelling story boards similar to “A New Hope” and “Empire Strikes Back.”

Does anyone see a pop bumper?

#1392 8 months ago

This ramp looks awesome to hit and probably has the magnetic hold of some sort? 622652BF-16DC-40D4-B0AE-ACE2040D0AF2 (resized).jpeg

#1410 8 months ago

I’m happy Stern decided not to put a picture of Kaneda on the coin door for this release.

Quoted from jellikit:

Did you make this connection from memory? If so, impressive and scary.

Old Chicago is a classic. The whole posture and stoic profile evokes confidence in any player that steps up to the machine. The Mandalorian LE has a bit of the “Chicago Art Deco Silver” feel to it on the backglass.
I’m sure it will impress in person. 63B8FBB7-16A7-44F5-9B34-670899632889 (resized).jpeg38EE4895-B03F-4914-A433-99335FA8D1B6 (resized).jpeg

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

This looks like a winner all around. As a guy who owns his own Stormtrooper suit, I'm very excited to play it myself

What costs more, Mando pinball or a Stormtrooper suit?

Has anyone seen a pop bumper on the Mando playfield?

Quoted from Rarehero:

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

Transporter is a favorite of mine.

#2994 8 months ago

Wasn’t there a situation at the last minute with Stern and GOTpro. People/Stern Staff looked at the game and said, “Wheres the Iron Throne,” and then right before production Stern threw in a stationary throne for the pro? Maybe Stern threw in a stationary baby Yoda for the Mandalorian pro or something?

#3020 8 months ago
Quoted from flynnibus:

Ok, but that also requires ignoring Brian E's quoted statements where he says entirely the opposite.. where the doll was the FIRST thing he placed.

Where is this quoted?

#3033 8 months ago
Quoted from Ranhorton:

After listening to the Brian/Dwight interview, the “impossible play” sounds so damn fun when you get a few buddies over that have dollar bills to lose ItsOnlyPinball - Brilliant!
And the co-op is PERFECT for me and my sons to play together. So much depth on so many levels built into this game.
Something for everyone.

So True!

Quoted from chuckwurt:

Built in wifi has not been released yet.

I’m ok with that for Mandalorian.

#3371 8 months ago

**Serious Question**
I spotted this object on the playfield.
Are they Electrobinoculars or macrobinoculars from the Star Wats Universe or something else?

Dwight mentions in the podcast about being apart of the “Church of Star Wars.” What’s that about?

#3376 8 months ago
Quoted from tilt-master:

Bounty tracking FOB

Totally. That’s it. I was confused with the pucks.

#3476 8 months ago

THIS..when I’m having to due future repairs and need to remove the rotating, mini, playfield, helmet.


#3688 8 months ago

I’m looking forward to seeing this rule set called “scope” by Dwight.
Quick question....will it be a Pro, LE, or Prem or is it still unbeknownst?

#3751 8 months ago

I just saw Grogu move!!!

Quoted from Fytr:

To be honest, if the all the video assets were animations done in this style, that would be the one thing that might push me over to the buy category on this game. Doubtful.

I swear there was never an end credit painting I didn’t like and I looked forward to viewing them after ever episode.

Quoted from RobT:

Brian Eddy will be helping out on code, just like he did on STh. This is a good thing.

Yes and no... Brian doesn’t know c++ as well as Dwight, but can interpret the data.

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

Ha Mando pinball for sure.

IDK, I just saw this and it had a price tag on it. Pretty close to a Mando pro.

Quoted from Chetrico:

OK, on a serious note. How do I hide my LE from my wife? I figured out the "don't have it delivered while she's home" thing, but not how to camouflage it once it's in place.

If you get caught just say...

Quoted from njenabnit:

I've never purchased a new Stern before. I'm in Oklahoma. What's the best route for me to get my hands on one of these?

This guy right here. He has always done his best for me and he tells it like it is. He also goes to pinball shows and exhibits games. Get on his mailing list or call. Great reference in the pinball industry.

Quoted from NeilMcRae:

Getting ready!
I'd like to ask you all to sit back and enjoy a Mirdoroo Grogu (Midori and Lemonade!)- this game is going to be great. I have a good feeling about it; and so does my drink.

Right there with you on the other side of the pond brother.

Regarding this Grogu movement.
In Class of 1812 pinball, wasn’t the hand originally stationary and then later or in the proto type there was movement? I sense there are similarities. BE8644EB-4DDF-43DC-9557-8B1AC1942DA8 (resized).jpeg

Quoted from dri:

Apologize the humble self promotion but there's a 10 hour Mando LE stream starting in 30 minutes at https://twitch.tv/dri374
It starts with game coming out of the box and doing some basic mods. Game play should be around three hours in if everything goes according to plan. Set the high score competition with some friends starts around six hours in and will run until the stream ends.

Can we find this on YouTube after twitch…

I can’t get away to watch but I’m interested in checking in out later. Thx

Quoted from Ranhorton:

Anyone else feel there should be some
Sort of action/scoring happening when you sneak into the upper playfield area (Mando Pro) via the left ramp (or via the left orbit).
Sometimes my ball goes up the left ramp but doesn’t make it all the way and it rolls into the “open” diverter area and into the mini playfield and despite hitting targets in the mini field nothing happens.

Totally…it feels like “secret passage” from BSD.
