    Quoted from big-c66:

    That’s not true distributors were completely sold out for the last run. I called everyone and finally found 1 distributor that had a spot. 7 months later I got mine on the last run n bam Stern stop production n screwed a lot of people out of there’s n said they would finish in 20022 and didn’t do it sorry as crap as far I’m concerned.

    It's easy to sell out a run of a few hundred just there to use up remaining parts. That's why there were no more. It was a disappointing seller by the numbers and TERRIBLE on route for us and others. Fastest in to out of the route of any pin, ever. Which was a shame because I was super-high on the theme.

    No it wasn’t definitely a disappointment as far as sales go. Distributors had people wanting them left n right even after the last run that they didn’t finish to fulfill all the orders people had waited a year for n hung them out to dry but it’s the same thing Stern is doing now nothing with change oh well be good PinMonk n love my mods I got off u for my Munster premium n tmnt.

    Would be funny if the factory Friday vid was all fuzzed out to hide the Bonds on the line lol.

    I'm still bummed about Munsters - with all of the episodes to work with, they could have coded 30+ modes with interactive video clips.

    just imagine if they really did make LZ for 4 weeks straight. poor distributors would be having to give them away.

    It's actually a really good pin. It took a little time to realize, but great shooter.

    #3766 1 year ago

    Fingers crossed for GOTG this week

    #3767 1 year ago

    yes, its gotta be guardians this week starting and finishing up next week!!!

    #3768 1 year ago

    Not sure if Stern slipped in a run of Godzilla Premiums or not but I just got the notification to pay up and it ships to me tomorrow.

    #3769 1 year ago

    Hoping Rush toppers are quietly being made

    And the expression lighting

    I'm glad I got to experience the expression lighting with the RUSH LE I had. I can't believe people are STILL waiting to purchase it for their non-LE RUSH machines...

    Quoted from hiker2099:

    Very surprised that the aftermarket community did not make an aftermarket version of Stern's Expression Lighting system that is plug and play into the factory wiring harness.

    Every dealer around here has a bunch of LZ just sitting around that they can't get rid of. Pretty much anything that comes in sells out right away or only lasts a couple days or weeks at best for some pro models. But they have had LZ sitting around for months that they just can't seem to move. One dealer right by my work has had the same unit sitting in the show room for over 6 months while every other pin has come and gone through

    Not true, Last run of LZ was in december of last year, and i got a lot of them. I was sold out by the end of february. I have not had another LZ in stock until last week.

    Eh. I have an order in and haven't heard anything. Would be a great surprise though.

    I think the key words are "around here." It's probably a regional thing. I know of dealers sitting on LZs for a long time, too, but in other areas of the country.

    they are unveiling bond today. They'll be showing bond on the line tomorrow, and bond was probably on the line last 2 weeks also

    they may be showing bond but I still think they are starting the process of putting them together this week and then maybe next friday they will show them being on the line

    So will all games manufactured after today carry the new pricing?

    Quoted from mbl1116:

    As long as you take delivery of games not names Bond before new years you should be good at the current pricing.

    Congrats! When did you place your order?

    Quoted from Grimstead:

    Congrats! When did you place your order?

    I placed my order late November of last year. Now if my EHOH would come in that would be great. I placed that order About a year and a half ago.

    #3785 1 year ago

    Who was the distro? Thanks

    Wonder what the price for EHOH is now . . .

    Edit: Sorry missed previous post on pricing. So we have to the end of the year?

    #3788 1 year ago

    Yes, EHOH goes from 9000 to 9700 on 1/1. Hoping I get in on this Nov build as well….

    #3789 1 year ago

    I think that answers the question as to if they'll run GZ prem again before end of year. They can sell them at 9700 all day so why not just wait until Jan to ship em. Maybe they'll focus on pros or games they would have a harder time selling at that price point

    #3790 1 year ago

    Hope not cause I for one will be bailing at that price point. Encouraging to hear some are still shipping now. This game will be made for a long time.

    Yeah... If my order gets pushed to next year, I'm out. They've crossed the line of what I'm willing to pay.

    #3792 1 year ago

    I just asked and was told I’m still in for this year. Hopefully pans out for you as well

    Quoted from seenev:

    #3793 1 year ago

    I'm guessing EHOH will be above Bond pricing. EHOH was always more than a cornerstone premium. Time will tell. I don't know what my limit is, but its damn close to that. I hope it is less... you never know.

    #3794 1 year ago
    Quoted from djsolzs:

    I just asked and was told I’m still in for this year. Hopefully pans out for you as well

    Stern hasn't told anyone they're making more this year, so far right? I haven't seen GZ on any production updates on this thread.

    One guy is getting one..I assume it's from the previous run and that dealer had 1 guy back out.

    Quoted from djsolzs:

    . This game will be made for a long time.

    it'll be made as long as people are paying 9700!

    #3795 1 year ago

    so we getting GOTG this week still!?!?!

    #3796 1 year ago

    Bond may not be on the line for a bit, possibly shaking up this thread's latest production schedule:

    Quoted from SantaEatsCheese:

    Per the email I have from Colorado Game Exchange:
    Estimated Build dates for first batch productions
    Pro (First build likely for commercial locations only Early November - Second build April)
    Premium (December)
    Regular LE (Late November Early December)

    #3797 1 year ago
    Quoted from Sorokyl:

    They can sell them at 9700 all day so why not just wait until Jan to ship em.

    Yep. Those waiting on GZ likely just got the price bump - unless they ship more before January.

    #3798 1 year ago

    Word on the street is turtles was pushed forward again and EHOH is no longer on the production schedule this year.

    #3799 1 year ago
    Quoted from honkbahh:

    Dang, where did you hear that about Elvira? Stern is toying with us on that one.

    #3800 1 year ago

    LZ Premium is an excellent Super Fast, Combo's galore , Never gets old type of game!!! Missing an important song tho!!!!
