Quoted from TheLaw:

I agree the LE buyers should get the topper too.
I also think the LEs should cost $600 more though.

lol. You and Gary.....best buddies.

I see thousands of dollars going in mods everyday, I can't blame Stern for trying to get a piece of that pie.
Plus they made it cool and innovative, I think it's smart.

Quoted from cooked71:

That sucks.

You've got a good point there WD. The whole thing is muddied because Stern knowingly release games where code is unfinished on launch. We all buy the games with an unspoken understanding that the code is unfinished and will improve over time. There is never anything concrete from Stern saying that a game is unfinished, finished or anything in between. We just trust them.
Throw in this new "Cash for Code" topper crap and the line between what's finished and what's not is blurred even more. Do we have to assume all released games from now on are more or less feature complete and any further code will be tied to a topper or enhanced light kit?

Still impressed by the add on ST light kit to see the hidden art. Seems like that’s where they dipped their toe in the water to see if a system like this would work.

Well we both agree that people will pay a lot more for pointless LEs that keep funding the company; more power to them all.

I'd consider paying $600 for a Wheel of Fortune topper if it meant it came with actual finished code

Quoted from yaksplat:

I hate the Pro/premium/special/LE business model and this just makes it even worse.
Just sell the whole damn game.
I hope someone reverse engineers what the topper unlocks and then releases it.

Bingo... we have a winner... could not have said it any better.

George talks about the stranger things UV kit as well in the interview. It took a bit of engineering to figure out how to make the UV work as intended with the existing playfield paints and clear coats. That development plus the actual parts themselves cost money, so instead of increasing the price on every strange things game they decided to sell it as an add on kit. They did eat the cost to add the UV to every playfield so that everyone would have the option to add the kit if they wanted to.

Quoted from DakotaMike:

Masks are taken down in people's cars between stores, or for any number of reasons. Are you suggesting someone put on their mask for a shopping trip, and never remove it, even while driving

That's EXACTLY what should be done, but whatever you think is for the best.

Thats totally okay. What ppl react to is that it was not announced at release, i guess.

It isn't that great/hard of a question. If you have enough disposable income and like toppers then buy it.

I love it, it looks great.
The goat mode is mehhhhhh.
Not a game changer but a fun little add on mode.

It’s a typical frenzy mode. Every hit switch scores a certain amount. Instead of being time limited it’s “flip” limited. So drop catches and flipper passes are not smart during that mode lol..

Every switch makes a goat sound.

Nobody can tell you if it’s worth it or not. That’s subjective and personal... for me it was a must have for my LE. Hopefully I can recover some $$ when I sell my Tilt topper.
