I see someone on Pinside made a handle for Avengers IQ and put on Thingiverse so that it can be printed out.


Can anyone here print one out? Is it expensive to do that?

Already put a few games on it this morning, somehow Keith, Ray and team keep making this game better!

Loving the added depth to the captain marvel ramp and the new light shows are fantastic, also having the little Stern pinball Marvel Studios intro rip-off is a nice little touch.

I assume no one has heard anything about the subway replacement parts or disc levelling kits or any other bits that stern are replacing overseas? Has anyone contacted them directly? I haven’t heard anything from Phil on it since before Christmas when he last chased them. Would be nice to play this game as it was intended, as opposed to missing a major feature of the prem/LE pretty much out of the box.

I know @philpalmer and Electrocoin are chasing for various parts but stern is under alot of pressure with supply chain and having fewer people in the factory.

Has your original mech completely failed?

Had promised myself I wasn't going to play AIQ again until I'd received my Pinmonk flipper cooling kit.
Just as well it turned up this morning - perfect timing to put in a session with the new code😁

Yes, in terms of several of the bolt welds snapped off so the subway is shot. I’m playing with the subway turned off in the settings, but as with many things pinball, it’s a bit shoddy service from stern. They are getting kits sent out stateside so you’d think we’d be in a queue, and I think I first reported it around October ish?

Will be interested in hearing your thoughts on the new code Wayne.

That’s a ****ter, have you got the disc off then? Couldn’t you drop the mech out minus the plastic subway and use pass through until the new mech shows up?

That should allow you to still have the ball sink into the disc and roll straight to the VUK.

You can turn the trough off and it works just like the pro!

As Neil said, ive just turned the subway off in the menu and the disc stays down. So basically ive got a pro with a captain marvel ramp.
Are you guys all using the subway then? No breakages? I thought everyone had turned them off to avoid the issues!

Remove the stepping mech from the plastic subway and set the game to walk through, that way you can still have the disc raise and the balls own momentum will roll it down to the VUK, can’t see why that wouldn’t work as long as the software is expecting the ball at the VUK.

Only managed a couple of games before I got ****ed off with the fact I had moved it to make room for BM66 and it wasn't level (couldn't be ****d to get everything moved around to be able to get under the machine😡). The fact that I had just polished it and put new balls in meant it played like a real bastard!

Graphics explain much better what happens when you lose a gem.
Marvel spin sound effect and graphic became annoying very quickly.
Got the Marvel binary award, but it was in mb so no real idea what it was worth.
Hard mode in Soul Gem is REALLY hard, but MUCH more valuable

More investigation needed.

Could someone please take a few snaps of their AIQ slingshots . Took mine off the other week and can’t remember the right order to put them back with the hardware

When locking balls in the portal, I'm sure they used to stay there until you started a mode. Since the 1.00 code, I lock the ball into the portal and then it gives it back to me straight away, so I get into multi ball. Then when I start a mode, assuming I've lost the second ball (which I pretty much always have) then it gives me two balls in the mode. Is this an intentional change, or just another symptom of the portal issues?

Hmm that isn’t right.

Yeah like Neil says above that’s not right mines on the latest code and portal locks are held in the subway until mode start.
