Wondering which Stern title (in your opinion) has the biggest difference between the Pro and the Premium/LE?

I will include Spiderman, Elvis, and Lord of the Rings as they has somewhat "limited" editions with extra features.

Also, as a side question, which Stern title in your opinion has the biggest difference between the Premium and the LE?

Couldn't do a poll sorry!

All Stern titles with Pro/Premium/LE Versions:

- Aerosmith
- The Avengers
- Avatar
- Batman 66
- Elvis
- Game of Thrones
- Ghostbusters
- Guardians of the Galaxy
- Iron Maiden: Legacy of the Beast
- The Lord of the Rings
- Metallica
- Mustang
- The Rolling Stones
- Spiderman
- Star Trek
- Star Wars
- Transformers
- TRON: Legacy
- The Walking Dead
- WWE Wrestlemania
- X-Men

AC/DC, Ghostbusters, The Walking Dead

I would vote Ghostbusters, lots of differences with the pro vs premium.

Where's the poll?

I'd say AC/DC, MET, GOT, TWD & GB.

I think GOT has the biggest difference because of the flow change with the upper playfield. It's like playing different games going from the Pro to the Prem/LE. I like all versions of though.

I wonder if that’s why I prefer the pro versions of both these titles

Star Trek felt like a true "Limited Edition" game.

Yeah they don't make baked potatoes like that anymore.

The original AC/DC Pro. They took out the coolest thing in the game with the bell and punished you with Angus' ugly face reminding you that you only have a stupid pro.

I couldn't put all the titles on the poll sorry! There's a poll item limit apparently.

Off the top of my head I'd say Game of Thrones and Ghostbusters.

Ooh and yeah AC/DC. It's adding a whole new lower playfield!

Agree with a lot of the comments and am going to add Star Wars. I just can't see the point in playing the game without the hyperloop. Imagine ripping out the turbo charger from Getaway...you just wouldn't do it.

X-Men LE all the way!

Moving Ramp! Check

Spinning Magnetic Disc! Check

Not one, but TWO Nightcrawler Pop up Mechs (Think Trolls on Medieval Madness)! Check

Specific Mirrored Backglass 250 Mags and 300 Wolvie! Check Check

No Premium! Check Check Check!

I would vote GB for Pro to LE/Prem - magna slings, slimer, subway.

and STLE for the best difference from premium to LE.

AcDc & GoT have got to be the 2 major versions with differences - they've got 2 additional flippers and a playfield which SIGNIFICANTLY change both rules and scoring strategies.

TWD would come next with the addition of the action button, as well as the crossbow mech.

GB with both the layout differences and the magna slings.

AS has the upper playfield

SW has the hyperloop which can bring in an additional MB, along with the mini deathstar ramp.

Xmen has the moving ramp and pop-ups

Star Trek, Kiss, Transformers & Met have different toys/playfield/shot layouts, but don't significantly change the scoring strategies in the game as a whole.

GotG has an additional couple of magnets and spinners

AV has a powerball which slightly changes rules

Tron has drop targets and an additional MB available

LotR, SM, BM66, Mustang, RS & Elvis are cosmetic differences only IIRC

Don't know enough about TAV, WWE or IrMd

Aside from the cosmetic differences on Mustang, Premium/LE has 8 songs instead of 4 on the pro, also road hazard drop targets affect the scoring.

After doing some looking I would agree that Star Trek LE has the biggest difference of a LE over a Premium. They really gave you your money's worth!
