    Anyone wanna guess when I’ll get the Godzilla premium I ordered just 2 weeks ago?

    #2952 3 months ago
    Quoted from Blenderhead:

    Sometime after August.....2026.

    Quoted from Blenderhead:

    Late 2023, early 2024 if you ordered from one of the big guys

    Better question is what will the new price be?

    I got a bad feeling you're going to rub it in got lucky and jump to the front of the line next month!

    #2955 3 months ago

    I was told a couple days ago by a large distro that allocations at least through June were passed down by Stern. I was also told the RUSH run at the end of the month was 99.9% the last RUSH run for this calendar year.

    Quoted from Blenderhead:Anyone wanna guess when I’ll get the Godzilla premium I ordered just 2 weeks ago?

    I ordered one Friday and got it today. MSRP+shipping. Manufactured 5/31. Make some phone calls, put in some leg work. There are dealers that have them now. I see them on pinside. Sometimes in combo deals sometimes at higher MSRP, but just talk to people and see what you can do.

    Not enough information. Really depends on the distributor you ordered from in a lot of cases.

    Quoted from Hogey:

    Not sure if you've received your machine yet or not. I've used Estes a number of times to their terminal, but always went there to pick it up. If it's close to your house I'd suggest doing that.

    I did, thanks. I was contemplating that, but I don’t have a vehicle for it and I really shouldn’t have to. My issue was just a lack of communication on their part. Apparently, I had an appointment set up that they no showed and then the games just showed up after a week with no communication whatsoever. Good thing I was home. I wouldn’t normally care so much but I was leaving town and wanted to make sure they were in the house prior.

    I do not follow. What does 99.9 % mean? Do you mean 99.9% of distributors will have all their Rush allocations filled?

    #2960 3 months ago

    I take it to me and he is just about 100% sure that there will be no more rushes the rest of the year after this run

    Right - "almost absolutely certain" that the end of month RUSH run is the last run for the year.

    I did the same and got my game last Wednesday. Was also built on May 31. Seems to be a few still around. Sounds like Stern made a bunch

    sorry (edit) posted in wrong forum and can't figure out how to delete.

    #2964 3 months ago
    Quoted from amhpensfan:

    the good thing is I paid MSRP and have free shipping..... But I would of gladly paid a little above to end this horrible experience lol. ENJOY!

    Me too. I will never buy another game from the distributor that I used. Very poor customer service and no updates. When I email them, replies will take days. The games I bought from them I am still waiting for and other distributors show that they have them in-stock.

    I got notification that my GZ Premium is arriving Monday. It was supposed to come two weeks ago but was delayed (I was told due to warped playfields)

    Quoted from scootss:

    when did you order?

    #2967 3 months ago
    Quoted from sanctumwear:

    I think Deadpool Prem/LE is faster and better flowing than the Pro. The Disco Loop ramp makes the game way faster than the left orbit dump off to the pops on the Pro.
    I could see the argument that the Pro is more difficult to play without the ramp, but it definitely plays slower.
    The extra drop targets on Prem/LE make the game play harder and unpredictable, the Pro is faster in that portion of the playfield.

    +1

    Looks like Mando is on the line. I hope stern continues the what's on the line Friday on Facebook.

    #2969 3 months ago
    Quoted from ccbiggsoo7:

    who did you cancel with and what games?

    who doesn't matter - canx 1 jp pro and 2 GZ premiums

    GZ premiums? That’s surprising.

    I see Mandos in stock at several distributors now

    Wish they were GZs or DPs

    Just got a payment notice from Flip n Out on my RUSH Premium. Holy fucking shit I'm beyond stoked. To paraphrase "should be this week or next, so pay up". Looks like Stern is on schedule.

    Congrats! My cousin got a Rush premium about six weeks ago. Had a blast playing it, it's a great game! He's a Rush superfan and it's his first pin so he's been beyond stoked!

    #2974 3 months ago

    Just got the call. My GZ premium ships tomorrow. Ordered in mid-December from a small local distributor. Life is good! I'm going to miss following this thread.

    Keep following it! Even if you don't have a pin on order I find that the insight is helpful for future planning. Plus this is usually a pretty decent bunch with useful information.

    It’s been that way on his site for a while. That being said I do think $9899 will be the new norm for premiums in 2023

    elvira premium was always about 1k higher than other premiums before price hike of december, so its just staying on pace if that price is real. I havent seen what the price will be myself, so i dontk now if that "new" price is accurate, but it wouldnt suprise me

    I guess lucky for me I locked in with a distributor months ago at $9k flat... still hoping it ships to me in December.

    that's not how it works unfortunately. If the cost goes up for the distributor for the next run, i would expect them to pass it along.

    Certain distributors will lock you in at a price when you place a deposit. All of them should do this but some don't obviously.

    #2987 3 months ago

    With the big jump in price of a JJP on toy story I imagine the next stern will jump up in price too. I bet a pro will be 8k premium 10k and LE could go to 12-13k

    All the more reason I’m praying I get my GZ premium in July before the new release

    #2988 3 months ago
    Quoted from ovfdfireman:

    I have Godzilla Pro and Deadpool Pro in stock

    I may come back to you thanks! I would love to save the $500 shipping if my distro gets me a July GZ.

    I think you may be right.

    TS4 is likely a sign of things to come with the next cornerstone in August!

    Quoted from shanksfornothin:

    I have quite a few games, and that includes a nice selection of Stern Pro games. It is a very rare game that would get 8k from me. In fact, if I look over everything, the only one that stands out to me is Godzilla being worth it. Deadpool is still my favorite game, but I wouldn't have paid 8k for it.

    I think it is awesome that they get so many orders that they can raise prices that high. They have been working through a massive backlog. But in my opinion, right now, they have 2 current games that are great. 2 current game that are "ok" (I'll play them on location). And 8 current games that are turds that would never be worth 8k as a Pro unless they shipped with 4k in the cashbox.

    Just my opinion on the current prices and what I'd spend on my games.

    Just got word my GZ premium ships from nitro next week! Order date: 2-4-22

    #2991 3 months ago

    GZ Premium arrived yesterday. This was in the batch from around two weeks prior that got delayed slightly.

    People talking about availability of GZ's- for the record, I could have had a Pro months ago at MSRP.. it's the Premium that is tough to get.

    Maybe someone can answer this question- I've had a GZ Premium on order for almost 9 months with a large distributor... should they be able to tell me now whether my game is coming in July? IE, do they have an allocation number of how many they are getting in the next batch and they can look at the wait list and determine that my order is scheduled to be filled?

    I would imagine they could give you a general idea, yes. As a comparison, I ordered a GZ premium late February and was told last week I could expect my pin sometime in July.

    Sweet, all you need to do is hop in that time machine and let yourself from 3 months ago start collecting finders fees. I'd have happily paid you to have pointed me directly to this MSRP NIB game.

    I called my distro on Friday and they said they don’t have info yet for the next run as far as how many they are getting.

    Mine said they'd honor my original price, but they did say I'd have to pay 200.00 more for the new Insider connect.

    Yeah, mine is locked in as I put down $1k already.

    I was the lucky winner of Project Pinball’s Premium raffle. I chose a Godzilla Premium and confirmed everything on 5/17/22. Now I’m really curious when it’ll ship. I’ll keep everyone posted!

    Does cointaker lock you in with a 1k deposit? I’m hoping not to get bundled in with the next price increase

    Quoted from Parkshow30:

    They did with my $1 deposit on GZ premium in November of last year. I would just email them and ask if they still do it for current deposits.
