For those here that have ordered or plan to buy the new Star Trek game in 2013, which model are you getting and why?

(I realize there are many that might want to order one, but won't/can't. I'm interested in that too, but that's probably a different thread).

I am getting the LE because I like the look of that model (blue, mirrored backglass) the best and think it will look less dated over time.

Ordered a Pro because it is going on location. Might upgrade to a Premium later on if it really turns out to be that much better.

#3 5 years ago

Mine arrives on Monday!

#4 5 years ago

Anyone know when the Premiums will be out?

#5 5 years ago

Enterprise Limited Edition because it should be the best of the 3

Man, I couldn't imagine how awesome it would be to have this game on location somewhere to play. Would rock!!!

I ordered one as well and think that Steve will 'nail' it !

Well, I am not an 'operator' in the normal sense. We don't really have a place to play here either, so I am working on making a place using my games. I have a good safe location lined up in a boardgame store here, so lets hope it works out

No, but they are being produced after the LE models which I believe start production in a few weeks. I really hope the LEs are on the line for the Stern tour at Expo.

Exactly. I know I'm going against the grain here with this comment but I despise Actor likenesses on pinball machines. They become dated SO quickly. Who wants Alec Baldwin on their Shadow? Or Joey from Friends on their Lost in Space? The Avengers let me down badly. I was hoping the LE or Premium was going to have Comic art on it. Nope Actors and a green hulk. Who the heck wants a HULK on their avengers machine??? That was a fail. Should have been Captain America all the way. But it came down to the designer's love for Hulk and that stupid toy. Speaking of which, the X-Men toys weren't designed all that great either. A 6K machine with toys that look made for a 3yr old. Ugh. I didn't buy either.

But strangely enough I like Musician's likenesses on their pins. Has to be that way. Just a simple opinion.

So for those reasons - Enterprise LE for me.

Premium will happen 100%. Premium chosen over Pro for full gameplay experience (just my preference). Not LE for me this time around as I have made a life decision to get the full game experience rather than extra potential collectibility. Props to all those getting LEs though. They look awesome.

Yup, you nailed what I meant when I said "less dated" when you said "no actors". That's one of the reasons I consider TNG somewhat dated, despite the fact it's a great pin.

I may even get a Vengence translite to put on the (future) wall near the pun and I would absolutely love a poster of the Uhura/Marcus characters shown on the new Stern photo, but not on the pin.

The fewer actors on the art of a pin, the better. But I expect the licensors want to see exactly the opposite, since they are more interested in promoting te movie short term than the theme long term.

Finally played a Pro tonight; one was installed in Bene this week. I am INCREDIBLY excited to have ordered a Premium. The Pro is already fantastic; software changes will really add shine, and the additional features on the Pro/LE will really be spectacular.

This machine is FAR brighter in real life than the videos indicated - it's easily the brightest pin in arcade. Even brighter than the AC/DC LE next to it. Looks awesome. Even the display surround looks much better in person than I thought it would. And I like the look of the new backbox - it looks neat without the board going across the top.

#15 5 years ago

LE because I want all the stuff. Premium would have been an option if not Fugly.

#16 5 years ago

My first NIB and it will be a LE

#17 5 years ago

Ordered LE.

#18 5 years ago

LE here. Spider-man layout. Steve Ritchie speed and flow.
Can't wait!

#19 5 years ago

STLE ordered, never doubted it. Played the Pro and it is awesome. Can't wait for the LE.

#20 5 years ago

LE here also.

#21 5 years ago

I sold my LE today. Going to Orlando. Enjoy it Geoffrey.

#22 5 years ago

Waiting to see final iteration of software.

#23 5 years ago

My pro arrived yesterday, been playing it a bunch, I would call it a good game.

As compared to what Greg? Just curious...

#27 5 years ago

I was hoping mine would show up today. It has been sitting at the truck lines STL terminal for nearly 36 hours now. :-/ Will have to wait until Monday for it to arrive here in town. I could have been up to STL and back 6 times in that amount of time.

Oh well, I guess I have other things I need to work on this weekend

Ain't that the truth for most of us!

Put my money down on an LE

DITTO!

#31 5 years ago

LE for me. It looks the better one as well.

You were worried there for awhile though.
: )

Glad to see you hung tight Quarter!

#33 5 years ago

Deposit in on an LE. Agree with the "actors" comments made above. I just think the LE looks far better than the other two models and I *really* like the Pro model gameplay videos I've seen thus far, so this was an easier decision for me than even Metallica was. I just hope the LE / Premium models prove to be as cool as I've hyped them up to be in my head.

#35 5 years ago

The pro's lighting is such a jump, I can't imagine the le will be anything short of amazing.

#36 5 years ago

I will be ordering a Premium.

#37 5 years ago

LE for me. Yippee!

#38 5 years ago

Ordered the LE. My second pin and first NIB!

#41 5 years ago

LE has actors on the cabinet front and backbox sides! BWAHAHAHAH!!!

I had an LE pre-ordered but cancelled. I'll wait till I play it. If it blows me away, I'll get a Prem or LE.

#46 5 years ago

I think I'm going with this model as I like it the best out of all of them. It even comes with a Gary Stern look a like card board cut out.
