I am holding on the edge trying to decide between the Pro and Premium, does anyone have any solid info on when we will be seeing the Premium and LE models... artwork, features, and some gameplay?

I think this topic is significant enough to create a thread for those just trying to make a decision without trying to sift through hundreds of posts, I looked and can't seem to find anything.

And yes, my avatar has been the same for 3-4 years, so I couldn't be more excited about this title but I need to see the differences before jumping!! Why not just go for the Premium? Because I'm more about gameplay than fluff and want to make sure it's really the way to go.

ANOTHER ONE!

YEP!!! I don't live on pinside like you.

You shouldn’t have to live on Pinside to see all of the other threads. That’s all I’m saying.

As far as I know, no one has any idea. BUT - I think the premium has a very good shot at being the "definitive" version of the game here, considering that all the things that are in the Premium that aren't in the Pro were a part of Keith's original Archer designs.

So this isn't a case of sticking some extra crap onto a pin to make it premium, in fact it seems as they they removed stuff in order to make the Pro. (The pro is still an amazing incredible machine).

Also the Premium art is supposed to be Egyptian theme, so to me it seems like it will look the best as a whole with the art package. And Powerslave is my favorite album so... pre-ordering the Premium was a no-brainer for me, sight unseen.

I played a pro the other day, really fun game to shoot. On the pro should the shot on the back board hold onto the ball, pass through it or is just stationary? On the game I played it just hit it and fell down. Is that a premium / LE only feature?

It's just a target, no magnets, on all versions.

Damn, the design of it comes across like its meant to hold a ball or let you shoot the ball through it. Bummer. Thank you.

Yea, what a great place to put a drop target or something...

When I was playing the game and that area lit up after hitting it once I thought "ok, next shot it holds the ball (Theater of Magic / LOTR style) or it goes through it". I thought that was the main toy on the pro.

Pretty sure the timeline put out in the release was Pros first, LEs next in May, then Premiums. I don't remember the capacity at the new location (100 games/week maybe?) I would expect the premiums to come out early June. That is just my beer math though.

The beer math would be more impressive at this time (11am).

I was told six weeks on my premium about two weeks ago.

#14 1 year ago

My guess is we see the premium and LE this week. Hopefully as early as tomorrow.

#15 1 year ago

What is the going street price of a premium?

It’s a 3 tiered bullseye shot with
an outer ring an inner ring and a bullseye in the center.
Just got done playing one on location here for an hour and it’s great!

You can always just not click on the topic or drain it. Easy concept for most

#18 1 year ago

Still no word on when the premium pics will drop. $7,300 shipped is the going price on the premium?

Appears so, i called multiple people and it seemed to be the lowest price point i could find, some where higher but a few all said 7300

Dang on the price of 7300. I enjoyed playing Maiden at Mgc and I’m interested in the premium. Having recently picked up a Luci vault for 6800 shipped, I’m not sure if a maiden prem could have as many features as what ac/dc prem has. For not much more coin, a Dialed In (new or huo) is looking like a solid alternative to the continual stern price creep...

#21 1 year ago

Still no artwork or game play reveal on premium or LE? I figured it would be early this week but looks like I was wrong.

Yeah this wait suuuuuucks. Looking forward to a future where I'm not obsessively checking Pinside every hour.

Throw a color DMD in your AC/DC and your at $7225.00

After playing the pro I can’t imagine how they could make this game better. It is awesome just the way it is.

#25 1 year ago

For me, the Premium/LE just sounds too good.

-Lifting jump ramp revealing a scoop
-Motorized sarcophagus ball-lock (looks awesome on Archer)
-Some sort of diverter on the left ramp that leads to sarcophagus ball-lock
-Motorized "guardian" revealing a secret entrance to pharaoh's tomb (similar to the vari-target and scoop on Archer?)
-Hit detecting target for the orb with RGB lighting (would be cool if this was a hit detecting newton ball)
-Eddie figures instead of printed plastics
-Red playfield GI
-An interactive "RGBeacon" (is there something on Archer that is similar to this?)
-Powerslave-type artwork on cabinet

Saving up the extra $1500 for the Premium was a no-brainer for me.

I am curious why just the Red GI and not RWB like other stern Prem/Le models. The modes of this game would lend very well to the RWB. For instance, blue would go very well with the Fear of the Dark mode.

Probably to save costs as the game is already packed.-especially the LE. An extra GI strand and all the blue LED's cost money.

I'd have to go back and look at the Archer vids to know for sure, but I thought there were a couple of flasher domes that had circular LEDs inside that swirled around. Could be branded an RGBeacon.

These the pics of the LE??!?!?! lol

That's a TWD PF so I'm guessing not. If so, I can see a lot of people not happy about the backglass art...

#31 1 year ago

those have been around forever if you search, they are just something someone made up. Notice how it also has a red dmd instead of a lcd?

The bottom right of the backglass is also TWD backglass, under where it says Iron Maiden...not a good photo shop job.

Premium or LE only.....

#36 1 year ago

Just asked Elwin on Facebook. The artworks not even approved yet

Oh crap...on both the LE and the Premium?

#38 1 year ago

Nothing new, appreciate you asking him. They’ve been working on approvals for awhile now.

#39 1 year ago

Hope they reveal this soon... im looking to buy a pin and i think the premium is gonna b one of sterns best just based off the pro. Is it normal for wait this long to reveal the other models?

#40 1 year ago

I keep thinking it has to be more than an artwork holdup after 3 weeks. I wonder if one of the motorized mechanics isn't working as intended.

I actually asked when we would see them as the artwork was approved

He replied ....the artwork was approved ? With a question mark

There is a problem with the 3 way spinning disc.......

...because licensing is always simple and straight forward, and has never reared it’s ugly head previously in this industry?

I don't understand. Where you bluffing or did you hear it was approved? I thought artwork approval was the holdup all along.

For some reason I thought it had been...... that’s why I could not understand why they did not release.

Guess not.

#46 1 year ago

Maybe they couldn't get the ramp to go up and down so it's being re-designed to always stay up for the LE/premium.

#47 1 year ago

Couldn't we get some pics with a disclaimer "Artwork Pending Approval".... Would LOVE to see what I have on preorder...

Doubt it, too much risk. If they show it and people love it, and then later if they have to change it, there will be a @#$& storm. Just look at JJP - if they had not shown the 3 spinning disc in the first place, people wouldn't be bitching about it because they never would have known about it.

1 week later
#50 1 year ago

Any guesses now on when we see the premium? Rumor is not for another two weeks...
