Quoted from Rozeks:
Ordered an LE today. To be honest, I’d really prefer the LE with the Pro’s cabinet art/back glass. Love the look of the Premium, but color is one of the reasons we love pinball so much (not to mention that our game room is really colorful), so it’s not a great option. The LE cabinet art is my least favorite of the 3, but I prefer the color playfield and think that without the lower playfield that the game just doesn’t have enough to keep interest over time (so pro wouldn’t be a great option).
Ordered the LE today for the same exact reasons. Sold a machine last month to make space for Munsters and was highly anticipating seeing the playfield. Love it: the shots, the artwork, the wireforms, etc.
Yes, I wish the cabinet was that of the pro – but as much is I went back-and-forth on this, the end result is that it's fine and will simply get shoved into the lineup anyway. It's all about the playfield, which is why I went with the LE (wanted the color and grandpa's laboratory).
I personally think the lower play field looks awesome - with the ramp and the VUK. Plus the artwork. I am just a medium ranked player so give me a good upper or lower playfield and I'm not one to get bored. Still get excited when I get to Stewie's pinball - and no, I don't think this is a re-creation of that. It is new and unique and stands on its own.
My only complaint is that the Herman bash toy looks far too similar in the look and placement as MB and doesn't really resemble Fred Gwynne. Dragula might have been a better choice if they could have made that work. But I like it enough to say let's go.
Overall, I'm super excited and think John Borg did an outstanding job.
