I’ve had my GB Premium for over a year, and while I do have some gripes (the linear code being numero uno), I still love the game and have no intention of selling it (in fact, I ordered a Laseriffic topper today).
The flipper gap doesn’t bother me one bit. The lane hops were an issue, however, so I bought the extended plastic protectors, and that cured that hiccup. I also shortened the hex spacer on the right ramp for smoother shots, and picked up an airball protector.
My machine plays great. I love the theme, the art, the music, the shots. Hell, I even like the rules... I just wish the modes themselves were more random for the sake of variety.
And Ernie Hudson signed my translite, so that’s fun...
