Snowing and...the phone just rang canceling delivery . Plus no openings until Monday. Love Estes trucking. Grrrr.
Thursday I call and say package shown in route. Estes, we can't schedule until its actually here. Friday package lands and I call at 6am. Sorry todays trucks get loaded with scheduled deliveries only. Can you schedule me? Estes, sure for Wednesday since we are not doing deliver Monday Xmas eve. US mail came Monday and the best part is Estes actually has Holiday Music and a commercial playing and a commercial while on hold about how crucial they were to Holiday deliveries.
Today its the weather and I get it but to say they already booked all the slots until Monday. Doh. They suck!!
Venting over. Hope everyone had a great Xmas : )

Arg... Let me see if I can push from my end

#203 6 years ago

They let you pick up from them. I have done it before.

#204 6 years ago

David, I wish I had a truck and a good back and I would be helping you get the game today. Unfortunately I have neither

When my Hulk came from Estes on Friday, it had many gashes and a couple holes in the box. It was by far the worst condition I have had for any of my three NIB purchases. When I saw the box set down on my driveway I was not confident it was going to be undamaged. I cut open the box in front of the delivery guy to make sure everything was ok. Fortunately, none of the objects that poked through the box had hurt the game any but one came really close and had hit the inner edge of the underside of the cabinet without damaging it. I got real lucky.
With that condition of box, the lack of delivery availability, and delays for many other pinsiders, I am not impressed at all with Estes.

They do, and another Pinsider emailed me right away offering with a truck. But of course I work tomorrow and Friday so its just not feasible.
Luckily the family is all off from now until Monday so I have someone to sign. Just can't go grab her.

JJ thanks for the push ; )

Estes screwed Mine up. Somethings up with them.

When you say screwed up, what exactly does that mean, damage to the game?

#215 6 years ago

A little bit. Totally cosmetic.totally fixable....but definitely damaged and a kick in the nuts for my first NIB...and it was a surprise present, so my wife was really stressed, wanting me to get the game for my b-day when I got home from work but not sure what to do about the damage when it as delivered.

She said the guys that delivered it were absolutely brain dead.

#216 6 years ago

Just got a voice mail, mines shipping today, tracking # to folow later tonight i hope...

gonna be either Fed EX frieght or ABF...

FX did a great job last time with BIB, on time, and no damage to the box...

Contact your Distributor.. I hope the damage was notated on the Bill of lading before it was signed.

No worries JJ. You guys were FANTASTIC on the phone with both me and my wife last Friday. Thanks for the PM today too.

The fact that you were able to help my wife get AV to me by last Friday was amazing...especially since you couldn't email her, call her etc.! Crazy!

The only bad part of this...besides the damage to the game game...is that your customer service and attention to detail can get undermined by the shipping company messing up the game in the move.

However, I would recomend to Stern that find a way to cardboard every edge out of the factory. My game suffered ONLY because it was exposed in the area that got rubbed up against. Even with a thin piece of cardboard there I do not think the decal would have been rubbed off the game in that area.

I think the whole Pinside community is on the edge of their seats waiting for Gerry's assessment of the game.

#222 6 years ago

But which code will he be reviewing? Out of the box...or the update? Or will Gerry's game have the 2.0 SUPER-PAK...with real voice overs by RDjr and Sam Jackson to satisfy Gerry?

Ha not being allowed to email or call her was SO hard! Every step of the way I kept trying to then remembering I couldn't. Glad to hear she pulled the surprise off

#224 6 years ago

Waiting for some buddies to show up and help me get it in the man cave. But, damn its pretty!! The green is sweet looking!

We had company over for a late Xmas celebration so only got a handful of games on my Hulk LE last night. First impressions were "Wow, this thing is cool looking!". Apart from some visibility issues that are already mentioned in this and other thread, I liked the game... a lot. Should probably mention that all games played were on the new code. So, no idea how it played with the prior version..

Sound is not bad at all. Was concerned the voices would be bunk, but the script is well written and funny and the voices are good. The worst voice (least like the movie character voice) is the Fury voice and its not bad. The music and effects are really good. Most of our guests commented on how cool the sound effects and music were. It also got played almost as much as ACDC, which is a first as ACDC always gets played a ton by guests...

The light show is very impressive and while I have seen just a few modes, the GI is similar to Xmen and ACDC in that it changes colors with modes. It's got more flashers than any game I've seen, or at least it seems that way. It's impressive to see the game in action IMO. You can't miss it and in a room with multiple pins, it stands out when its being played or just sitting there. It has a dark look to it since all the GI is colored.

The DMD is way cool and love the green. Wasn't expecting much out of the animation. But, I thought the dots were impressive for the few modes I got into last night. Would take them any day over the movie clip animation I've seen in other games. They're well integrated and there is quite a few of them. Glare is an issue. It really affects the upper portion of the playfield. I've tried to avoid using Invisiglass or PDI glass because I know I'll end up buying it for every game. But, I'm ordering some today for this game. It's needed...

The shots are tight and very rewarding. Had no issues hitting the Widow ramp. Out of 8-10 shots only had a couple come out. The spinner takes speed off. But, it wasn't an issue on my machine unless the shot was not clean and even then it made it more often than not. The game played fast and it's a flow game with several cool combo opportunities. Seemed like I could hit shots pretty quickly compared to X men which take some "learning" to get a feel for.

Hulk Multiball is awesome. Never counted if the game released all 6 balls on the new code. But, damn! It's a rush as is now and probably the best multiball in my lineup. It's fast and a cool rush. Forget trying to control anything until you get down a few balls, It's a flail away fest with all the balls initially. I forgot how much fun that was. Made me miss STNG. The hulk show is cool and the bridge throw is impressive. The ball does just fly off the widow ramp during Hulk multiball. It was hard to watch the flight path with all the balls in play but got a few looks as balls drained. The balls were typically hitting the flap that is in front of hulk as they came off the ramp or the area just in front of the flap. Gonna lay down a little contact paper around the drop targets and Hulk eject saucer. Those seem like the most likely wear spots.

Visibility is an issue and a few tweaks need to be made. Loki target blocks views, and the drop targets are hard to see. Wasn't as bothered by the Loki lanes or top lanes. They're blocked, but you can see enough of the light and reflection to know whats lit IMO. It's less than ideal though and could see where some people would not like it. Guess I've gotten used to seeing reflection since I've played so much ACDC and the cannon blocks the lane completely... Drop targets and Fury target are pretty much out of sight to the point where you need to alter your position to get a good look at them. Used the lights in front of the drops to aim more than the targets themselves. Fury is completely blocked. Loki needs to be moved as Gambit suggested or taken out more like LOTR since you can see the lock.

Had no issues with Hulk ball traps at all. Not sure if its the code change since I never played the early code. But, Hulk reacted almost instantly anytime the ball was near him and never had him catch or trap the ball for what seemed like a flaw. the longest the ball was near him was a half a second, if that. When the ball was behind the drop targets, it takes a second for the ball to roll down to the opening. But, it's not catching or getting stuck for me. It seemed to react as intended and I was pleasantly surprised to not have any ball traps around Hulk as I was expecting some and hoping to not be too bummed about it. Did get one ball stuck at the widow ramp where the bridge separates on a slightly off shot that lost speed through the ramp. Took a slight nudge to get the ball moving but wasn't much of an issue IMO.

All in all, my first impression was very positive. Way too soon to say much more than that as I had nowhere near enough time with code or playing he game. But, I'm happy with my purchase and think this is one of GG better games in quite a while.

Good news for sure....

My opinions to follow soon i hope....

Hope my experience is a solid as yours seems to be...

thanks for the input...

For those that want a 20 minute fix to the Loki Lock Light plastic blocking the Fury target issue, and can do a little wire splicing, go look at my Avengers Fixes thread. I relocated Loki up where the Helicarrier plastic was/is, and it not only makes the Fury shot totally visible, it also declutters the PF as a whole and puts that lock plastic where it should be - right over the shot to make for the lock.

Sorry... I don't really know which was it up any more.. I even thought and looked before but I'm so confused in life right now! Need to quit doing 14 hour days and sleep. New GF isnt helping the sleep factor either!

I recommend that you keep close track of the location, and as soon as it arrives at your terminal you should call them to schedule delivery. That will be your best chance to get it shipped at the earliest possible time. They can only schedule the delivery if it has arrived at the terminal.
