Game is fun and very fast.
Has some pretty glaring flaws.
Slingshots both activate, shitty during multiball.
Metal target is one target and not the traditional 5.
Ball launch has already sent the ball into the top plastic covering the lane.

Seems to score uber low.

Captive ball makes this a great game for my wife and I (2 player steals).
Factory settings are certainly getting my wife more multiballs.

Art is great.
Not getting the ball time yet for songs.
Takin a ride
Veteran of 1k wars
World of fantasy
So far.....

It is cool having a rare game.
It sucks that I have a smaller support pool.
I have to see if any of my issues have came up in the Star Wars homepin threads.
My machine is not the same and is built much more robustly. But it has the same layout. My playfield issue should be very similar.

Otherwise
Love having a NiB. Wife loves putting in her initials so often.
Game scores really low HS 7 M
Music. Still no Sebastian Bach Heavy Metal.....

Not near as finicky on start up as Aerosmith.
Still not switch on and go like Elvis and earlier.
Already want a color dmd (like that would ever happen)

Special # magazine will be coming in the mail direct from Incendium.
I already have a spare copy to include to read.
I have found that Hamilton has my closest shop to have it encapsulated and graded.
Otherwise,

My wife seems to think a multicade would fit that space quite well.
Should be cheaper fully working than a project pin.
I have 1500 set aside for one.
Just can't find one that she likes the cab art.

I ordered a shaker.
P1 parts was a little weird.
I guess he had not realized there was a Heavy Metal (other than HMM)...
At least one that took a spike shaker

Further stumped him on weather it requires a capacitor kit for the shaker.
I can honestly see it needing one with the overall lack of stuff inside compared to my Aerosmith.
One of the club guys installed pin stadiums and had no extra plugs for 'easy' install.

Machine is currently at P1AG getting warranty repair.
I am not 100% sure that the playfield opto is my issue. The last thing I want is to get the part and still have the issue.
It would end up at the same place anyway.
If you are there, maybe Jerry will let you have a look.
I told him to set it up by his desk to experience dj mixer mode.

There you go. You want to play Heavy Metal, it is 'currently' in the showroom.
I keep the Taarna side to the wall at home.
The magazine that is suppose to come with it has become quite an issue between Incendium and Heavy Metal.magazine.
Will probably never happen.
Glad I got one with the regular cover.

No problem Luch, you and Josh can play my games anytime.

Must admit, even though it was a lot of fun, I did find it a bit empty, but still a whole lot more fun then a Led Zep.....
...and better music also.

I thought it would be nice to let Jerry have it out on the floor until I came in to get it.
It's still available, just cheaper from game room guys.
Swapping it out for some service on Aero pro tomorrow.

It was on in the showroom when I showed up.
The boys at the shop really liked playing it.
Loose wire at the connector causing intermittent contact.
Under Warranty, they fix.
