Godzilla theme works pretty well for pinball. Jurassic Park dinos were done recently so maybe Keith will design a King Kong pin to complete the trilogy. Jaws would be icing on the cake.

Quoted from screaminr:

Godzilla pro , it's one of the most barren underneath Playfields I've ever seen .
[quoted image]

I'm not going to judge this game based off of that fact alone (though I agree) since Iron Maiden is probably my favorite Stern game and that pro model also has very little going on under the hood.

I was making an observation , not a judgement .
The pro is definitely going to be the most reliable and play the fastest , could be the most fun of the two

Quoted from PinMonk:

I'm not arguing that. Just saying that most Stern Pros look pretty barren underneath lately. At least it's not barren on top, too (LZ, cough).

Cough all you want. LZ pro is super fun to shoot. The Prem/LE even more so!

LZ has insane flow dude. Jamming a playfield full does not means it’s good.

Surely you jest. You know it's coming at some point...When is it coming? If you have to ask then no one knows probably.

Don't put words in my mouth. I made no comment at all about how LZ plays.

The original statement was Stern Pros were barren underneath. I simply replied that if they were complaining about that, LZ Pro is barren on top, too.

Here's my original reply, in case you forgot the context:

Quoted from PinMonk:

Not a peep about how it plays, right? Just stating the obvious for someone complaining about how barren Pros are becoming UNDER the playfield.

Led Zeppelin IS in desperate need of a mankini, though...you CAN quote me on that.

Who wore it better?
Even the BBB tube dancer knew wearing the shoulder straps on the hips and going topless was the correct way.

Yes, even aliens have more sense than demigods, apparently.

#22415 35 days ago

Love both GNR LE and Zeppelin LE.
Guess which one gets played the most…… Zeppelin. I think I agree with most everybody here in this board the pro is a turd there’s nothing on it but that extra ramp shot and that spinner magic magnet toy is really good which makes for some extra modes and achievement goals in the code, and it’s got fantastic code !

Ha, how can you rave about the prem/le LZ and say the pro is a turd? It's the same code. Yes, it's missing 2 MBs tied to the EM spinner, but all the other rules are there. Same songs, Tours, Tour MBs, Zep MB, World Tour, Top of the Charts, Celebration Day wizard mode. Band Boost, Super Band Boost, Icarus X. It's all there.

I do like the prem/le more than the pro. But for me the pro is still a solid 6 or 7.

Is that a Data East GNR topper?

#22418 35 days ago

GNR is pretty but if I were to choose which to play, Zep gets the nod.

Looks like a poster behind it, no topper.

Agreed. I love my High Speed. I don't think people should have to pay an extra 5k to listen to Zeppelin while they play though.

I like the game, only played a couple of games but it was decent.

If you are a big Zep fan, even the pro would be A-ok!

Quoted from crujones4life:

Not that I care...but that Godzilla pro does look surprisingly barren UNDERNEATH.

In my eyes - easier to work on when there are issues

I’m already choosing a game to sell to make room. 40+ year super fan and I couldn’t be happier. I get they are not everyone’s cup of tea and not the theme everyone might have wanted but for us hard core Rush fans, this is the best news possible. I’m actually glad not everyone wants one as that should make getting a Prem/LE that much easier!

Not a fan here, however Im sure Borg will make Rush pinball something special.

The more barren underneath the better IMO

What does this new EHOH 40th Ann addition do to the values of the limited and signature editions

#22439 34 days ago

I'm so tired of Limited Edition shit.

#22440 34 days ago

Kind of a weird strategy from Stern, selling 50 signature editions as super limited for an absurd price, and then a bit later selling another 199 of an even better version....that probably will piss off the buyers of the signature edition.
On the other hand, as long as you bought it because you're a fan, and you like the pin, than it shouldn't really matter.
Now for the turds that just buy pins to resell them for more money, guess the price just went down, so that would make it more in reach for someone searching for one.

When is the next stern game to be announced?

#22444 34 days ago

It needs to be BTTF, Goonies, or Van Hagar. NOT interested in Rush, Bush, or some other mediocre theme.

#22445 34 days ago

Or atleast Van Halen with BOTH Dave and Sammy eras. They should make it like Alien where you can switch between movies.

IMO, hurts SLE value, helps LE values.

#22447 34 days ago

How come no one had “Elvira 40th Anniversary Limited Edition” on their Next Stern Pin bingo card?

#22448 34 days ago

That Elvira custom shooter knob looks like it's going to rake some hands on a quick full-release.

Weird strategy? I think it’s a smart business move in my opinion. Demand is through the roof for this title and parts are in short demand with prices sky high for parts, so why not make a special limited run knowing you will sell them the minute you announce them?

Besides who gives a a damn about those buying up LEs to hold them for a profit, sucks to be them I guess, besides credit where credit is due, at least they didn’t do a JJP YBR and charge more for less.

#22450 34 days ago

Played a Godzilla pro last night. Pretty cool game, but I think the prem with the collapsing building and bridge would be the way to go.

Art direction is just WTF. Pics on the internet do not do it justice, GZ literally looks like a big watermelon man in real life.
