Picked up my TWD LE today and I got LE # 39. What # TWD LE did you get? Post your numbers here


#19 6 years ago
Quoted from DylanFan71:

#43 for me to match STLE.
Congrats on the game Ryan!

That's awesome! How did you swing that? Did you pay for the number or just get lucky?

#25 6 years ago

I don't know what people are talking about, I've been playing my LE all night and LOVE it! When you load the crossbow you aim for different animals then if you make the shot to the corresponding animal it shows you kill it and it's dead body. Awesome! Thanks underlord for doing such a good sales job on your buddy at Stern that they actually made it

#30 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

When I got the go ahead a year ago I almost fainted! Gary was against it but everyone else loved the idea! Cooler heads prevailed.
Now if I could just get Gary and David together on Jaws...

How about convincing Gary to do an Evil Dead pin? He wants to do more adult themes right? Ah forget it I'm just going to start a thread entitled "let's tell underlord what title to sell to Stern next" and let the masses convince you

#32 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

Bruce Campbell? Hell yeah! I'd buy that for a dollar!

image-622.jpg 25 KB

I bet he'd be willing to do custom call outs too. He's cool like that.

#33 6 years ago

So for # 39 # 43 and # 64. Everyone who has received one so far has a pretty low number. I wonder if # 1 - 250 stayed in North America and the higher numbers went over seas?

#35 6 years ago
Quoted from tadowhere:

#48 was the one in France

Ah, thanks. Well that kills that theory.

#38 6 years ago
Quoted from Zdoor:

Most of ours shipped out today. Looking forward to seeing customer pics.

Refinery editions are the best! I can't wait to see what they come up with for the apron on the LE

#41 6 years ago

Well worth the wait, especially if you're a horror buff. So judging by your screen name, you'll love it.

#48 6 years ago

221, ok so now the later # are running off the line. How do you like it?

#53 6 years ago
Quoted from PinB:

I could have sworn that the LE was 600 units - did they change it?

I'm pretty sure it is 600 LE's being made.

#59 6 years ago

So # 365 & # 197 accounted for

#60 6 years ago
Quoted from zucot:

14 here in the San Francisco Bay Area, getting delivered tomorrow!

#14, nice, I'm jealous!

#64 6 years ago
Quoted from frolic:

I have a MET premium, that gives a good idea of where the light show will go. Right now you can tell it is very basic.

Does Metallica only have two GI colours too?

#66 6 years ago
Quoted from wellarmed:

I am getting #222 end of december .
Have to pay $100 plus for that number .

Wow, if you were paying for a # why not #1 or # 2?

#67 6 years ago

And you are now twins with Pinballer22

#70 6 years ago
Quoted from Pinballer22:

pissed find out all inserts are led boards....way too many white inserts!!
pissed as well to find out it is a translite not a real backglass....thought the le was suppose to be a backglass???

What!? I haven't checked yet but I thought it was an actual backglass too. I will check when I get home, that would piss me off too.

#71 6 years ago

According to the features matrix it is a "Mirrored Backglass" and the Pro is a translite. I am working now but will check mine when I get home. Mine was mirrored though and felt like a backglass.

#74 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Why do you think it's a translite? According to the feature matrix, the LE comes with an "Exclusive Limited Edition The Walking Dead mirrored backglass". If this is not the case, they are going to have some pretty pissed off customers.

Yeah, that was part of the LE price tag

#87 6 years ago

I thought a real backglass was screened onto the glass, not just a translite?

#89 6 years ago

Oh I will be, there's no doubt abut that!

#95 6 years ago
Quoted from spidey:

ยป YouTube video
Now I'm going to take a close look at my STLE backglass.

go check now, I must know how long we haven't known?

#98 6 years ago
Quoted from Purpledrilmonkey:

No, it has 3: Blue Red White.

This has been the case since the first LE/Premiums to my knowledge. Use color gels to change the insert colors. Works quite well actually, and is way cheaper than LEDs in my experience.

Where do you buy these insert gels??

#126 6 years ago
Quoted from leaffan67:

#30 in the Mancade!

Nice! I thought I had the lowest number from starburst but looks like you beat me, enjoy

#127 6 years ago
Quoted from frolic:

The mod that is needed is:
-Light up bicycle girl when the ramp lifts up.
and also
-Flash when hit.
I'm going to guess a PIG could do this, but I wonder if there would be a cheaper and easier way to do it.

Yeah I agree. My ramp lifted and I expected a light to shine on bicycle girl, and nothing. It was so dark I didn't even know what I was hitting. That was actually the most disappointing thing to me, except for maybe my crossbow coil being broken right out of the box.

#130 6 years ago
Quoted from Zdoor:

We are working on a lighting mod for the Bicycle Girl area. Should have it done soon.

Yes, thank you Gio! It will be a must buy for the LE

#133 6 years ago

You da man Gio!

#135 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Can't wait to see what you guys come up with, Gio.

Yes their stuff is the best. Now that I've had an interactive apron and a over the top back box kit I can't live without them now, I will be getting both. Hopefully Gio is hard at work designing an over the top back box kit specifically designed for TWD LE with flashers placed in certain areas, yah!

#137 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Got a call from my distributor today. My game shipped. Will have tracking info tomorrow.

What # did you get?

#139 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

I honestly have no idea. Guess I'll be surprised.

Must be like Christmas for you? I'm really enjoying mine. I'm glad I chose TWD as my first LE

#141 6 years ago
Quoted from perryd:

what is taking you guys so long to post video??

I'm lazy. I don't know what everybody else's excuses are, but I'm lazy to be honest.

#143 6 years ago
Quoted from BenetBoy78:

I am told I will be No. 234. 1,2,3,4...What are we fighting for? I don't give a damn! I'm going to Vietnam!! 5,6,7,8........


#147 6 years ago
Quoted from Pinballer22:

It is almost like a trans stuck to the can peal it up but you can tell there is something causing it to stick. Definitely not what I would consider a real backglas

20141106_123010.jpg 63 KB

20141106_123053.jpg 71 KB

Ok someone in another thread peeled back that white layer on their MET LE and it turns out it was just a diffuser and the image was screen printed on the glass. If you peel back that white layer on TWD LE can you see the image printed directly on the glass or is it stuck to the white like a translite?

#152 6 years ago
Quoted from Pinballer22:

I think it is different....last couple to hopefully help clear it up. Don't want to peel any further in fear of damage and it would be outside the trim.

20141107_091418.jpg 79 KB

20141107_091426.jpg 81 KB

Ah thanks, well that settles it then. False advertising at it's best.

#156 6 years ago

Wow, that was detailed, thanks for the explanation. Do you work in the industry?

#159 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Ultimately, all that matters is if it looks good or not. I just don't think Stern should be using the word "backglass" in their marketing materials to differentiate the LE from the pro. It's misleading.

Yes, very misleading.

#167 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Just got off the phone with the shipping company. Mine will be here on Monday.


#169 6 years ago

looks like they are starting to roll into the States now

#175 6 years ago

Nice, enjoy! Let us know what Gary says about the backglass/translite as well.

#190 6 years ago

I called Stern today about their fake backglass and they told me "it's a our new process, it's been used in slot machines and in casinos for years with good results so this is what we will be using from now on". They basically told me they won't do anything about the misrepresentation and if I don't like it, too bad.

#194 6 years ago

Nice, that's the highest number I've seen. Looks like the higher numbers are more rare in North America.

#205 6 years ago
Quoted from cantbfrank:

Got yesterday. Loving it! Not sure why there been a lot on pinside bashing it.

Because it's Pinside

#208 6 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

x 100
And the "unique gameplay" is what I'm looking forward to. I think Borg has a huge winner here.

Couldn't agree more, game rocks. Another great Borg game with Lyman at the helm for code, yeah!

#210 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

Mine is stuck in Ohio! You guys are killing me!! First thing I'm gonna do is repaint the well Walker.

How the heck did it get stuck?

#212 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

Dunno. Been sitting there since 1:29 am yesterday.

Yeah that would be driving me nuts too

#215 6 years ago
Quoted from MrDo:

I haven't had a problem getting up either ramp from the crossbow... Other than my aiming, of course.
(On IndyPin's #85)

Yeah, my problem is aiming too. My son made it up the right ramp no problem. Does anyone know how to activate the crossbow? I've only got it a few times but don't know how I started the mode?

#218 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

( well, the vast majority anyways!).

#221 6 years ago
Quoted from Aurich:

"what's the difference?". If if looks good, then who cares how they did it?

These were Sterns exact words when I asked them about the translite instead of backglass, almost word for word

#222 6 years ago
Quoted from Indypin:

Got 85, but the best part is it's birthday is on Halloween!

I have to check the date on mine. It would be super cool if it was born on Halloween

#223 6 years ago

Are the LE's being delivered in the States yet? Anyone have any other numbers to report? I don't think I've seen a number lower then 30 yet in North America.

#229 6 years ago
Quoted from Hwawonyu:

Your collection says it already arrived : )

Are you still in for one? I know you were on the fence.

#239 6 years ago
Quoted from Xerico:

#72 in Rockwall, TX
TWD LE #72

image.jpg 129 KB

Whoa there's a big hole in the bottom of the box. Is the pin OK?

#243 6 years ago
Quoted from n0s4atu:

Ok, since I'm not allowed to even power it up yet (wife wants 1st game).
Everything on this game looks great, minus of course my personal preference about the armor (I get what Stern was going for there), but the one glaring thing that stands out as I've been standing there staring at it (since I can't play it yet), is that the apron looks like cheap junk. I've heard people complain about the plastic apron and I didn't have any experience with one before. but it looks out of place and considering the cost this is probably my only real complaint. Everything else is subjective, but find me one person who actually likes the apron and I'll be astounded.
Add a Pinball Refinery apron to the list of mods that I must have. Pretty sure when all is said and done this ends up close to 10k.

I hate the plastic apron, especially on an LE, what the heck? I'm going to pick up a metal one from Pinball Refinery for sure!

#245 6 years ago
Quoted from CptAwesomest:

#325 Arrived today!

20141110_160656.jpg 177 KB

Nice topper.

#251 6 years ago
Quoted from tatman9999:

Is the apron going to fit with the cross bow

Pinball Refinery is working on one that will.

#254 6 years ago
Quoted from tonylo909:

Mine is supposed to show up tomorrow morning between 8 and 9 am. I have my choice of #171 and #177. Getting a Star Trek Pro at the same time.

Which one will you choose?

#257 6 years ago
Quoted from tonylo909:

My daughter says get the #171 and I will respect her wishes, unless the box is damaged, then all bets are off!!!

I think your daughter is right. 171 has a better ring to it.

#268 6 years ago
Quoted from Banker:

#260 just arrived!

I bet BR is going to enjoy playing that so much he'll go out and get his own

#271 6 years ago
Quoted from Twilliams:

#74 checking in at Charlotte, NC. Fun as heck pin.

Nice! You have a crazy LE line up!

#278 6 years ago

Brock at Pinball customs also sells PDI glass.

#283 6 years ago

So far most of the ones that landed in the States are high numbers and the lower numbers seemed to be in Canada.

#284 6 years ago

I did check the born date on mine and it is Oct. 29th. Would have been cool to be born on Halloween like some others were.

#289 6 years ago

Do you guys have the new shakers that ground through J16 in the back box SAM board?

#299 6 years ago
Quoted from n0s4atu:

I was going through all the settings and the factory setting for shaker is high, you can adjust it down. Now I just have to get mine and install it.
I may have asked this before, so forgive me if I'm asking again, but how do you trigger the crossbow? I had one game where I got it twice, but was basically flailing about and none before or since then.

I think you get it by completing the drop targets, but I could be wrong.

#316 6 years ago

Ok I'm having an issue with my LE. The ball will just not go up the bicycle girl ramp from the crossbow. Can anyone else make it up the BG ramp from the crossbow shot? Seems like there is not enough power in the crossbow to make the shot.

#320 6 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Does that shot light up as a crossbow shot?

Yes, it lights up and is a crossbow shot. But the crossbow is too weak to make the shot.

#321 6 years ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

Yeah, if the ramp is up due to BG mode then no problem hitting her with the crossbow shot but it wont make it up the ramp. It could be due to the plastic piece but I've never tried without that on.

It's not due to the plastic piece, I don't think so anyway. Mine hits the ramp square, goes half way up then comes down

#322 6 years ago

I can see that crossbow shot eventually breaking/cracking the ramp too because it hits it dead on, smack, and the ramp is so steep.

#325 6 years ago

Ok so it's not just me. It's a lit shot you can't shoot. Lame.

#332 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Okay, I just tested it thoroughly. There is no way in hell the ball is making it up that left ramp from the crossbow. It simply doesn't have enough velocity. On my game, the ball lands before the ramp, bounces off the playfield, goes partially up the ramp, and then comes right back down. I am able to make the right ramp no problem.

In my opinion, the game needs to be re-coded so that the ramp is always automatically raised during the crossbow shot, and BG becomes the target you are aiming for. This is not an ideal solution, but I don't see how this problem can be fixed any other way. If you put a stronger coil in, I'd worry that plastics are going to start breaking all over the place.

That's a great idea. Having the BG ramp lift when the crossbow is activated Please listen Stern!

#333 6 years ago
Quoted from frolic:

Pretty sure I hit it on the LE video I made in another thread when I was demonstrating the crossbow.

You're right you did make that shot in the below video. I think that was a one in a million shot but if you can consistently make it please let us know how?

#335 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

Very interesting. He made it on the back swing. I hadn't actually tried that. Perhaps it is easier that way? Heading back to my machine.

I tried the back swing with no success. The shot is just impossible to make work.

#360 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

I just examined my crossbow closely. The only thing I can think of that might be causing the weak shots is the way in which the ball lays against the plunger. The plunger is making contact with the ball well above center (see photos). This may be inhibiting the full transfer of power. If this is indeed the cause of the problem, I'm not sure the best way to go about fixing it.

Crossbow #1.JPG 182 KB

Crossbow #2.JPG 170 KB

Do you mind taking a Picture of the back of the coil on the crossbow? I think mine is missing parts.

#362 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

No problem. I just need to figure out where I put my damn camera ...

just above the flippers facing the apron. The crossbow is all exposed on that side.

#363 6 years ago

I'm definitely missing the plastic sleeve between the coil and the metal washer.

#365 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

I just had my camera 30 minutes ago when I took those photos of mine. Now I can't find it anywhere. Incredibly frustrating!

LOL, happens to me ALL the time.

#367 6 years ago
Quoted from gweempose:

I'm going to start another thread specifically about the crossbow.

Good idea. Please don't forget my pic though.

#379 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

Snow thrower behind that annoying box. Sorry, I'll take a better pic of the snow thrower later.
Now to open her up, and give feedback on QC issues.
( hopefully none).

Did you get # 24?

#381 6 years ago

You fought hard for this theme. What do you think of the results?

#389 6 years ago

Well if your son gets in there's no better way to celebrate then to crack that TWDLE box open

#395 6 years ago
Quoted from robbo105:

#486, born on Nov 11th.
Up the left ramp, flies right into the glass.

My left ramp was giving me problems at first but after I blitz waxed my playfield and ramps, haven't had an air ball since.

#399 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

I got mine setup. Minor leveling, I got lucky out of the box.
My son got 162 million first game , got crossbow mode, made lh ramp no issues.
Added shaker and got other mods coming for it. Lit Woodbury and lit wellwalker light kits.
Topper soon, yada yada. :p
Game is fast and sweet! Very pleased. Next big update coming down the pipe will put this title over the top!

the real question is how did your sons interview go? Did he make it in?

#403 6 years ago

Wow sounds like a mess of an interview on the militaries part

#415 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

You guys have a link to this awesome backglass mod?

Here is a link to the mod:

I didn't know Mezel made one. What does it look like?

#418 6 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

Sorry, it's pinball refinery. Actually pretty cool. Light choices available. It's in their store . Won't let me post a link on my iphone.

Ok nevermind the link. I already bought the Pinball Refinery BG light kit before Nodleyiab's was posted. So I am also buying Nodleyiab's kit because IMO it looks a bit better and I will find another place to put the Refinery one.

#420 6 years ago
Quoted from blueman01:

Number 65 is alive. Just unboxed yesterday. Was worried when the balls started jamming in the ball trough on the second game - but it turned out to just be a loose t-nut floating around in the trough. It's all good. What a blast this game is!! Looking forward to a fix for the left ramp though. I'm amazed that the ball can make it around with the jump it has to take as it transitions from the moving ramp to the stationary section.

You got the # right after Frolic's. The exact same thing happened to me with the t-nut stuck in the through after the first game. Except I wasn't as smart as you and I called Stern and they told me to take the apron off and take a look

#428 6 years ago

Has anyone made any adjustments to the Woodbury shot? I get a lot of bounce outs from that shot, like 80% bounce outs. Is there a tweak for this?

#431 6 years ago

When I shoot the Woodbury shot it goes half way in, hits something, then rolls back out.

#442 6 years ago

I got my Laseriffic mods in today and installed them. And for anyone wondering the Woodbury mod fits the LE just fine






#445 6 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

Sweet mods QG, really like both of those!

Thanks man!

#447 6 years ago
Quoted from skywalker:

The Woodbury sign looks great,
Just thinking here, could a light be fitted behind the sign, when Woodbury insert flashes so does sign

Ha I was thinking the same thing. When I was installing the "survivors inside" mod I had the Woodbury sign sitting on the colour changing LED for the "fire" button and the sign looked amazing changing all those colours. The LED light evenly disperses throughout the sign, looked really good.

#448 6 years ago

Ninja Scroll, nice Hazoff! A classic and one of my favourites.

#461 6 years ago
Quoted from Hwawonyu:

Whoa, you went all the way in and got an LE. What do you think of it?

#484 6 years ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

I disabled the pop furthest to the right of the cab and its a non issue now, still would love a mod that allowed fast orbit shots back to the flippers.

Markmon is good at figuring stuff like that out.

#489 5 years ago
Quoted from underlord:

Game really is fun. Next update should make title stand out. More of a refinement update and rules polish. Lyman says other than that game is good. He also is going to deepen rules for advanced players and add huge wizard modes.

Did Lyman say there would be any more crossbow action in the new update?

#498 5 years ago

Nice. I have to go through this tread from top to bottom and make a list of all the LE numbers that have reported in. I bet there are a lot

#504 5 years ago
Quoted from Gibo:

The Aussie LE's have arrived #26 for me

Nice #, how are you liking it?

#506 5 years ago

Wow I can't believe you Aussies are just getting your LE's now
I will warn you guys though, don't play it until there is a left ramp fix. You will destroy your playfield.
