Hey, even a broken clock finds a squirrel every now and then!

Not broken, and not into bestiality.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

Oops, I keep thinking the Stern Indiana Jones was Eddy cause it so bad.

Oh, you meant Stern IJ. Who cares who designed that!

#17903 1 year ago
Quoted from Pinkitten:

It would be a shadow of that game.

When people say it is going to be more like shadow, all that was meant by Kman and what he should have said is it wasn’t a fan layout and will have an upper playfield. Other than that the description fits every game with an upper playfield. What nobody has mentioned yet is what I hope will happen is for the game to have ramps with player controlled diverters, like in Shadow. Now that would be cool. Eddy please bring back diverters and give us a ship-shaped upper playfield, the force magnet and baby Yoda and I will be an overjoyed premium customer.

#17904 1 year ago
Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

Well...why don’t you save yourself $4k and just buy a Shadow then? I hope for something new and interesting at every release. A reskin is boring and lazy.

For sure, I get that perspective. But for me, it's well worth the 4k for a brand new beautiful (hopefully) machine with a 1 year warranty, a theme my family loves, LEDs...

I was just making a bad pun. But PinMonk said it would be a re-skin, not simply share features with The Shadow. If it is a re-skin (it won’t be), I’m down for it. The Shadow is a killer pin. I still can’t spend this kind of bread on Mando, because I have never seen the show. If it had been Days Of Our Lives, or As The World Turns, now I’m ready with the LE pre-payment.

Well, Mandalorian is kind of like As The World Turns, but in space. Drama, solution, someone's pregnant, new drama, different planet, repeat. So, maybe up your alley?

Quoted from PinMonk:

Play better. Shadow is a masterpiece.

However, i really like the creativity of the shadow layout. Sincerely.
I agree with you regarding the scoop i can’t manage to shoot consistently, i need to play better.
Just would like the left ramp slightly upper and another upper playfield, it is fine but get boring to me in the long run.

Who started this Brian Eddy Indiana Jones stuff? He worked on code for Williams IJ - nothing to do with layout.

yes to this. I plan on waiting for secondary Mando market but if it’s Shadowlike and has creative diverter use, ...my plans are out the window

1 year warranty? From who?
Never mind, saw the distro post. Who’s your distro? That’s good support.

#17922 1 year ago

There’s no denying the similarities between AFM and Stranger Things, but the differences are what make STH more fun to play for me. The motorized bank of stationary targets is replaced by the 4 drops. Shooting up the middle no longer destroys the enemy; now you get to do battle and shoot the enemy in the face. The square MARTIAN targets are replaced by narrower DEMODOG targets that make better use of the available space. The saucer on the far left adds a new primary shot, and that feeds the inner orbit with a little tweaking. And finally, STH has the cross-playfield skill shot. You can argue that this isn’t great for multiball, but it adds some chaos to the game and I like it.

Add in the UV kit, the LCD, the darker theme and the music and it’s a very different game than AFM.

We warrantee everything we sell, new or restored for a full year. Always have. For 79 years. It's just good business.

#17924 1 year ago
Quoted from Cdonnerusmc:

Just found out its Our distributor being disgusting! They are choosing to sell the Limited Editions at $12,900.00. Smh.

I know that a local operator was offered an LE spot for $13k by his long-time distributor that mostly only deals with commercial buyers.

For good or bad we sell all new pins at MSRP.

Let that bitch sit there and rot

#17927 1 year ago

I sell leather belts on bullhidebelts.com and offer a ten year warranty on a $50 belt. People ask why only ten when some do 100 year! Stern sells $8000 machines and basically a year warranty if lucky. I get machines break but need longer warranty period.

#17928 1 year ago
Quoted from zr11990:

Let that bitch sit there and rot

It'll sell. People can make the choice to buy that or get one for 15K from a flipper. If I was Stern and had a finger on the pulse of the never ending posts proclaiming to buy LEs sight unseen based on theme, I would have priced them at 12.5K+ from the start. You wanna play the LE collecting game, well this is what it has become.

#17929 1 year ago

I'm not saying it is right or wrong, but when a distributor is only given one or two LE's and sells them for MSRP only to see his customer turn around and sell it for 10x the profit he made, they are eventually going to want a bigger piece. Now going to your loyal customers and doing some kind of half assed bid/auction is bad for business. Do it the less conspicuous way, give it to your brother and have him list it for 13k.

#17930 1 year ago

If the Mandalorin pin is really as good as all the hype...I will most likely buy one.

Wouldn't mind an LE but I'll buy a premium model and I'll enjoy it just like I enjoy the Dead Pool premium pin and GNR LE (instead of CE) that I own.

And, I'll have absolutely NO regrets of NOT having to spend more money for the "same" exact game... minus some minor extras but mostly bling! Especially if people are having to pay through the nose because of supply and demand.

It'll be interesting to see how much money over MSRP will be thrown away just to get the Manadolrian LE.

Ok this shit has gone on for too long. What is the next one.

#17933 1 year ago

People can pay $15k to a flipper if they want. But that’s just impatience. There will not be very many LEs of any game selling for more an $9k in 2 years time. In fact, probably $8k. Especially Stern’s. We’ll see.

#17934 1 year ago

How do you figure that? Sterns have been holding or increasing in value really well these days. (Exception being Munsters for obvious reasons)

The layout has a passing resemblance to AfM but it doesn't play like it at all. You could easily have both in the same collection and not feel an overlap.

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

“These days”. A stay at home pandemic. That’s why. In non-pandemic times I’ve seen LEs go up, go down and go nowhere. Most NIB games eventually sell for 10-15% less than purchase price. And the longer the game has been out, the more it inevitably becomes available. That’s just what I’ve seen. Maybe I’m looking in the wrong places.

By all means, use your own experience and judgement.

Quoted from zr11990:

The worst part is that it won't. Someone will be looking for a Mando and panic when they can't find one and that's when it will sell. Oh, and btw, it will be $15000 by then, probably.

I’m not picking on you, but this comment and many others in this thread make it sound like all Pinsiders ever buy are premiums and LEs. I take the exact opposite stance: I’m a Pro buyer, until I see something that persuades me to upgrade, like way better cabinet/translite art, or a major feature that has a lot of value (like 2 more flippers and an upper playfield). But normally, I’m stubbornly pro-Pro. I do know that Stern would struggle if everyone was like me, so I’m not out to stop the LE hype train. Just making observations.

#17940 1 year ago
Quoted from RobF:

That would be Next Level Pinball?

I can't imagine Jordan would do that. Never has in the past

#17941 1 year ago

Looking forward to the trailer video on Tuesday. Even then it's still hard to know the fun factor until at least a live game play stream.

#17942 1 year ago

No worries. I just like to have all the stuff in the game. I would buy the right pro... not against it at all. In fact would love to save the money too!

I debated on DP pro or premium because, although I didn’t hate the premium artwork, I really preferred the artwork on the pro. But, I went with the premium because even though theres not a huge difference in the gameplay I did not want to miss out on the extras. It did suck to spend an extra $1500 (I think that’s what it was) for it but I was happy with my decision and the premium artwork is really cool... it really grew on me after I bought it.

If Munsters was better coded I would own the pro. Because even though the difference between pro and premium is substantially more (compared to DP) I don’t really care for the lower mini playfield.

It’s good we have options!

Mando Cabinet hmmmm.

#17946 1 year ago

This is the way... Seems to be rotating, drop down upper playfield. Presumably Grogu aka baby yoda has a magnetic hand to pickup pinballs within that upper plastic ramp area ?!, possibly might move his head, does he blink ? modders will have that happen. Back glass meh, rest of the game is pretty packed , lots of wire forms, as stated in the other thread haven't seen a Stern game this packed since Ghostbusters / Simpsons Pinball Party
