    Don’t know if everyone has seen this. It sounds like a few folks are disappointed the layout is so similar to Metallica but still looks pretty cool in my opinion. As always it will be interesting to see how it plays.

    I have always wondered how much Stern Pinball has to pay for the licensing rights for some of these popular properties.

    I hate, what I call “look at me , look at me” YT videos…. but this was a good video on Guardians
    dudes are pin “buyer elitists” but like I said they make some good points about the machine
    I just wish it was JJ that got the contract… would be an even better game
    I will for sure want to find and play it tho….

    Jersey Jack does a good job on their tables. It would be great if they did enough business to put out more than one table a year.

    Speaking of I had not seen this either.

    im not a Stern fan sad to say(i respect them for building pinballs for sure)

    Not a stern fan only due to the 80’s-90’s when Stern was putting out tables compared to Williams and Bally tables of the same time stern just felt cheap and lacked playability compared to Williams and Bally. Sega is another example

    I do like Jersey Jacks machines and honestly some(very few) of the newer Sterns are ok like Star Trek and even AC/DC are great pins but i think they pump them out so fast that they lack any real depth or creativity but thats just me.

    I play all pins and always will!

    I do enjoy some 90’s stern tables too! trust me im not a Williams/Bally snob…..well maybe i am

    Didn’t Gary Stern oversee the Data East and Sega pinball divisions before he bought them out?

    There is Nothing wrong with being a Williams or Bally snob.  The problem with Stern is they tend to be cookie cutter layouts, with a rotation of music and movie themed pins.  I own 2 Sterns because they cost less than the other guys (at least the pros do), that said the quality is just not the same quality or game depth as a JJP.  I had the green light from my wife to buy Stern’s Star Wars, money in hand went to try it out, and walked away disappointed :cry:

    I wasted my youth playing arcade games and ignored the pins at the arcades.  Man i wish i could go back and play more of the early 90’s stuff, hence why I enjoy virtual pinball for recreating those tables.  Even back to the 70’s and 80’s every pin theme was different and original, just not what it was.

    But hey don’t get me wrong the newer manufacturers are thinking outside the cookie cutter
