Quoted from Pinzzz:

I’ll take the bottom half and turn it upside down in my future machine....
Cutting a $300.00 Iron Maiden Cyborg figure in half....is not in my wheelhouse!

They don’t even sell for that new in box.

Replaced the Piece of Mind Eddie with the Todd McFarlane version.

Quoted from Coindork:

Got rid of the plastic shrinky dink Somewhere in Time / Stranger in a Strange Land Eddie tonight and replace it with this.
#Eddielives

You should mount the legs on the underside for your own amusement for when you need to lift the pf!

#804 1 year ago

LOL, that’s pretty funny. I may do that. Kind of reminds me of the Addams Family and how they wound have animal heads on the walls and on the other side of the wall was the rest of the animal.

Quoted from Coindork:

Looks good, I have the NECA version I will swap with the plastic one. Also have the Killers figure I was going to swap with the other plastic. Have an extra Killers figure if someone wants to buy it. 9EB61091-B9E3-4669-9106-D3F6E82C1D7C (resized).jpeg

Quoted from iceman44:

Duggie, is that diagram for real! Lol

Yeah...straight from the LE manual. If you look closely you might notice they only have 7 spacers (14) listed in the diagram instead of the 8 that it should be, but to make up for it they have 3 speakers (13) listed instead of the 2 that are actually in the game.

do these come with cabinet protectors or do I need to purchase a set?

Come with, installed and ready.

Does anybody have the details on the LE powder coat color/formula?

#811 1 year ago
Quoted from Cserold:

Ditto on that question. I’m going to want to get the coindoor done to match.

#812 1 year ago
Quoted from mollyspub:

They do come with but I usually like to swap over to the metal protectors, the plastic ones don’t space the legs out quite as far and I have noticed that sometimes the leg will still contact the cabinet and can damage the decals. I always make sure that I can run a piece of paper between the cabinet and the leg all the way around so that I am sure no part of the leg is contacting the cabinet.

About the author: I have severe OCD and there is nothing I can do about it.

Who is going to be the first manufacturer to put pinstadium like lights on a game?

Love the mirrors and this game def needs more light as it's dark in the middle but I wouldn't be able to deal with those zebra stripes on the ramps....

Yessss !!! Thanks for the pics

It really looks awesome and with the gameplay this is going to be a keeper till i die for a Maiden fan like me

This is an Iron Maiden thread. Not AC/DC

#823 1 year ago

After running through all the songs many times and not being familiar with maiden before this pin, I decided to keep all but one song (Run to the hills). To determine what to replace it with, I went through a lot of their songs and found this one - Wrathchild. Really liked that one. Therefore I injected it into the new code (PRO). If anyone wants it to use on their machine, I've posted it here. I used loseless audio (FLAC) so it sounds really good.

Congrats! That's a hell of a first NIB game.

guys with shakers - do you feel the jackpot vibration is too much? The shaker is perfect otherwise but when I get a jackpot (shooting down a plan in MB) the machine shakes pretty well. Anyway to tone that down?

Go for smaller jackpots.

Can I Play With Madness is on my chopping block, with Wasted Years not far behind. I'm thinking about swapping in Losfer Words and From Here to Eternity.

Powerslave is my favorite album of theirs and I'm pretty happy half of it is already in the game.

Getting the official headphone adapter in tomorrow along with a few parts to try my hand at building a line-out adapter.

#828 1 year ago

.97 is soooo good. Finally made it to NOTB today, failed, but made it there.

thanks but just confirming it's supposed to shake that hard....

#830 1 year ago

I replaced all the cool white Stern LEDs in the GI on my Pro with Comet warm white 2835 frosted LEDs today and it is a huge improvement! It really makes the artwork pop and warms it up vs. the cool LEDs which wash out the artwork. I'll try to get some pics although it can be hard to photograph.

#831 1 year ago

I was thinking about one of these as a toper. Maybe it is a bit big.

That plane is going to crash if the props don't start spinning asap. Reminds me of floating planes I've seen somewhere else only very recently. Where could that have been.

Do you know how many it took?

#835 1 year ago
Quoted from TaylorVA:

Approximately 28. All bayonette style. They were all easy to change from the bottom side except for the back left corner. Those you have to remove some plastics and possibly the ramp depending on how agile your fingers are. It's worth it though!

#836 1 year ago

I'm an idiot. Never did a code update on a stern before. No instructions on their site.
I downloaded to my thumb drive.
What next?
I don't even see where to insert it in the backbox.

20180513_210716 (resized).jpg

#837 1 year ago

Inside the back box to the top right there is a white sticker with black text on how to update. They have line by line instructions - pretty good on what to do.

Quoted from delt31:

They are not as bad as it looks via the pic. I don’t even pay attention to them when playing.

#839 1 year ago

Well hell. Maybe I downloaded wrong. It just boots up normally.
I hit save as from sterns site.

Yes but you need to find the file you saved then extract the file from the zip and put it on the root of your flash drive. Make sure the machine is off cold, plug in the usb and then power on. Should prompt to update.

#841 1 year ago

Ha. Got it. My 7yr old nephew makes fun of my lack of computer skills.
Thanks for helping this dumbass out.

Ok. Apparently I don't got it. I extracted the file. Now it shows this. Tried to install and the game still boots normally

The side art on the LE blows away the pro, and the pro side art is great. Love those fighters. Nice pics!

Really... From here to eternity... Iron Maiden's love song... Yuck... And while I'm not hte biggest Wasted Years fan... I love Adrian Smith's playing, and he did a great job on that track... And while it might be a bit wimpy of a song... It's a quality song, and I think was one of the reasons he decided to leave Maiden. I think he felt burnt out and wanted to see what else there was in life.
But, can I play with madnes... Come on man! That song is epic. True I wish they would have done the Evil That Men Do... Maiden seem to not like the song as of late, but its my all time favorite Maiden song. I think 7th son of a 7th son is their best album... But, you like what you like... But, if you do Losfer words... Then the selction really will be powerslave heavy. It's already skewed in that direction to begin with.

#844 1 year ago

Not a Maiden fan but I’ll admit my ears are adjusting to them the more I YouTube songs & watch gameplay footage! gryszzz is a fellow Hoosier permitted to come play your badass machine at some point?

I got a feeling that Gryszzz would be fun to play pinball with. Got another feeling that he makes a mean cocktail.

Too bad he doesn't have a Mustang anymore though.

#847 1 year ago

Evil that men do is the big one that's missing to me. Maybe they thought it was a bit repetitive with the chorus.

#848 1 year ago


Haha. Everyone's invited over to play it. Come on down.

#849 1 year ago

Tuna I anguished over that sale. Can't say I miss it though. I mean, I have a SFII, so there's that.

#850 1 year ago

Does anybody remember that guy that made those clear cabinet protectors? Not for the legs, the ones that go over the cab art...like aunt Hilda's sofas and shit. Think I wanna slap some on with a 2 yr old wreaking havoc all over my house.
I did a forum search but all that pops up are the leg cab protectors.
