    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.

    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 finally heard from Stern.
    No shaker support.
    None really planned.

    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.
