What do you reckon the glass box thing up from the pops represents?

Looks great but I've decided to wait to see more :) I'll most likely grab a premium:)

Looked at the photos over and over and I can only assume their will be a KISS band member in there that shakes or does something because there appears to be magnets on the base of the clear square panels.
Another guess is something like a light show that represents fire like they have on their concerts.
Could it be a large Gene Simmons tounge that shakes and moves during some game play.

In the photos it doesn't appear to be connected to the rear clear ramps or the wireforms or the ball VUK.
It has to be a casing for a toy of some sort that is cool to the eye but has magnets to help something shake or move ?

Now I have to wait weeks wondering what the hell it is. Lol

Really looking forward to seeing pictures of the Pro and getting my hands on a few Translites for the collection.
Stern is going great guns of late.

The cage is standing in for Paul

Stern has full color pics on their FB page

I wish the back glass was further away from the Bally game

I don't want one but for me that's the nicest looking Stern I have ever seen...would still love an original Bally Kiss though.  ^^^

Also I prefer the first cabinet black with red trim and flames...just my 10 cents worth..again very nice

I'm with you Peter, I think Premium is the way to go.  Don't get caught up in the hype until the machine is a known quantity i.e. is it going to be a good game to play as well as being 'Kiss' and looking pretty darn good.  Looks like all the backglasses/translites are going to be the same artwork so in the grand scheme of things, there is really very little difference between a premium and LE machine by the looks of it.

There will be plenty of Pro and premium machines around for a long time I reckon to buy a NIB machine.  I am hoping my business does well enough over summer to buy myself a premium.

I wasn't sure what i'd think about a remake of Kiss, but i think it looks SWEET AS!  *%* *%*
I like how they've used the original style bumper caps, same as the original Bally version.

Too bad i can't afford to buy a brand new pin, otherwise i'd consider getting one.

Artwork is amazing. Simple, but amazing. Ace and Peter are on the cabinet and predominantly on the playfield. I can't tell which is the LE or Premium .. Is that a good or bad sign ?

As good if not better than TWD.

Nino the LE has red power coat and Premium and pro has black trim :) I'm sticking with premium as the black will sit nice new to my back in black rock on KISS I love it.
