  1. Hope all you guys are enjoying your Mando’s. Really enjoying this game.

    Just gauging interest from Mando LE owners that want these backlit side rail kits. Only for LE - it’s the EL light panels that light up the cutouts in your existing Mando LE side rails.


    Just looking to recover costs and help with shipping. They cost $159 usd plus Int’l and domestic shipping. So should land for about +\- $300 Aud. Unfortunately Hooked won’t ship to Australia now unless we use a courier, so combing up to 10 sets is the only cost effective ways.

    Let me know if anyones interested.

    Oh sorry, my apologies 🙂

    It surprised me with that antenna, was just expecting one of those tiny usb integrated ones.


    Havnt had a chance to debug my Wi-Fi issue though. Likely to be a setting it doesn’t like.

    The light on the scanner hasn’t bothered me at all while playing.

    I also saw that there is a method to hook up all insider capable machines to a single scanner. So if anyone had a zilla plus any of the connected capable machines then you can save yourself the cost of additional kits and get achievements on all your machines!


    Yeh….I can’t see myself forking out a small fortune to buy a scanner for all my Spike games. Will just wait to see how good it is before even doing the network diverter trick.

    It looks a little different to that.


    It shows it like this 




    You then get achievements etc. 




    edit: well it’s probably not a range issue. Check out the antennas on the adapter! Might try relocating it outside of its faraday cage!




    I thought he meant installed, like hardware installed. 

    Exciting times! Hopefully they come out with some cool features for it soon.


    Apparently that antenna is only on export games.

    Sorry Mark but have never even heard of Rush but my 2cw its aimed at North America. BTW, Loved playing a Godzilla pro at Pinfest. The LZ got one game from me as did GnR

    This one is absolutely aimed at North America. Like Aerosmith was.

    Looks like a great game though - tbh I’m not a huge fan of ACDC, Metallica or Maiden, and those are probably my favorite 3 pins. 

    Really cant wait to finally play GZ Jeff. Shouldn’t be long now.

    Have you seen the BOM comparison with LZ? It pretty much matches GZ. I'd say they'd cut out some mechs over increasing the retail if they added expression lighting. You can see the LE retails continuing to go up though thanks to the all too many out their who are willing to pay it. It's already pretty much in the I don't have the level of fomo to really give a shit over getting a premium. I can already see just getting a Bond premium later in the year, regardless whether I sell an LE to pay for it. 

    Definitely a tough pill to swallow now.  Seems like an increase on GZ, with expression lighting thrown in as a sweetener. Be interesting to see if next title without expression comes back down - somehow doubt it.

    Agree on the LE VS Premium. Having said that going to be tough paying LE prices for a Premium. If you add expression lighting to a Premium on Rush it will still be $14k!!!!  Was only a couple of releases ago that was LE pricing.

    Awesome   👍

    First Aussie LE spoken for,  you beauty 🙂

    Honestly I don't think that you will be disappointed if you can handle the tunes. 

    Its interesting that some class RUSH as progressive rock or progressive metal, mmm I  don't class them as progressive metal. 

    A great progressive metal band for pinball would be Dream Theater  Could make for a very cool pin !



    Definitely not metal @Ando77 . Prog rock for sure. Of the album’s I’ve listened to so far 2112 and Hemisphere stand out - but their catalogue is huge, so I’m sure there’s heaps more.

    Really talented guys - Neil Peart is phenomenal.

    Hi, what does 'playfield reprinted' actually mean? Is it a new replacement, a restored original or has it got a playfield overlay?

    It’s a German company that sands back the original playfield and re-prints the art, then clear coats. So you end up with the original pf/inserts but with flawless art and beautiful clear. Looks phenomenal.

    www.pinball-classics.de but it’s all in German.

    Sorry but I never opened a link and now I have tried it didn't open.

    No biggie really, all the pics I saw are resto pics otherwise the displays wouldn't have changed colours? Maybe check what is posted above. Not being smart, just honest. But that usually gets me in the shit as well.

    Not to get in a fight, but which display pics are you talking about? There’s one pic in which the displays are powered off, but in the direct light so maybe the “off” colour is throwing you? All the display pics I can see are white.

    And the link works fine for me.

    Anyway, all good. Either way, it’s a gorgeous game. Really hate seeing it go. But that’s what happens when you’ve got 18 amazing games, space for 12 and 4 more coming.🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️🤦‍♂️

    What I mean by different finishes is If I was a buyer what am I buying not what was it?

    I bought a Yellow car but but it used to be white??? Thats about it. Display the item for sale. Not photos of what I won't get? It is a sale after all. Not a resto report. 

    So let me make it simple for you…..the photos actually in this thread are of the actual finished game.

    The photos in the google link are of its restoration.

    to be honest why white displays and photos of different finishes?

    Can you post what is actually for sale? Not being smart but the photo's vary on the way thru???

    And to be more honest I have a beautiful CENTAUR and ponder it's current worth based on a comment when Bill delivered a machine 13 months back??? How the time flies,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,,

    Based on what I see the asking price is very much a great buy.........

    You must have some beauties if this is on the chopping block. The old Bastard / Bitch has the best heart beat after all....


    White displays because it looks amazing.

    Not sure what you mean by different finishes? Some Photos are during restoration and others in my games room. Same game though.
