Okay, okay, okay:
NOw I'm into this. I wanna watcha godzilla movie now. which one do I watch??
That robo godzilla toy, and that bridge and the building that the multi-ball comes out of in the middle all looks cool as heck.
Okay after seeing this video I had to go back and watch it again and really pay attention to what the difference between the Pro and Prenium models gonna be... and what the heck, the pro doesn't have that cool robo Godzilla, OR the bridge, - are you kidding me that robo godzilla just a little cardboard standup guy, I'm OUT! But I'm IN for the premium baby! Is there even gonna be a limited edition??
Edit: okay BOTH those Godzilla toys are just little cardboard stand-ups on the PRO, this is seriously the biggest difference between Pro/Premium I have ever seen, they are really making it so you have to get Premium anymore.

I agree the premium has all the toys. However what I thought was interesting about the pro is wire ramps. If you had not seen all the toys on the premium you would have thought, gee this pro looks pretty packed! It's got the criss/cross ramps from fishtales and one has a little twist to it. Also that magnet post thing that has claw artwork around it is not something seen before.
I am a little worried about the depth and flow of the game. When you start cramming in a bunch of toys, then the game may have some initial excitement but then get boring over time. However since Elwin is the designer, I doubt that will be the case.
I will say after seeing both, there is a huge difference that really makes the premium stand out. I think we finally have a strong contender for a turtles trade in 2022.

I noticed the same thing about the wireframe ramps on the pro at first. that's great that they aren't plastic, but I wouldn't be sold on the pro model just because of that. If we trade Turdles out for this game it's got to be the premium baby
Boy, some hiatus This Week In Pinball is having...

ouch on those price tags, that's the most expensive pin yet, but with all those mechs I'm not surprised. Plus with this market they can basically charge whatever they want and all the rich white old men will line up.
I also just saw an announcement that to get the LE, you have to be a Stern Insider Member and they are only selling those direct from Stern. This is kind of a big change to the distributor setup they've been doing all this time. I bet distributors are not happy about this.
If all goes according to plan tho I see it being possible that we could trade turts for a premium pin next year. The first premium pin i've ever gone for.

Well, I finally got to play GODZILLA PINBALL this past weekend at Logan Arcade in Chicago and let me tell you what.
It was just as beautiful looking in person, I was lucky enough to play the PREMIUM VERSION - apparently they had all three versions there for a launch party one week prior and GARY STERN was there to kiss all of the flipper buttons with his slimy old man lips to kick it off.
The first three or four games I played this game were duds, it got some getting used to to figure out that you got to keep smashin that building to get to the point where you are locking the balls, and then once you are, easy peasy to get to MULTI-BALL. Really loved that magnet in the upper corner effect, loved it all really. I only activated MECHA GODZILLA MULTIBALL once, and did have a pretty good game in there (I thought at least). Right now my high score of 106 million is 12th out of 14 scores listed on pinside.
But this game is THE REAL DEAL, truly the best game in modern pinball gang!!!
current high score holder on: FOO FIGHTERS, Mousin' Around, Judge Dredd
