      Lets tally up any interest in this as the soon to be Stern title.

      As much as I love The Walking Dead, I think Resident Evil would be a much better license for a pin.

      If it has to be zombies, why not make it more current? World War Z is coming up with Brad Pitt, and the ladies love him, so they will love the pinball.. right?!?

      I like the idea of an original zombie themed pin. Don't get me wrong, I like the Walking Dead, just don't see it as a great theme, the show is a bit too serious to be a theme for a machine that should make you laugh and feel good.

      I can see it now. Woo SHOOT MY ZOMBIE FRIENDS MODE!! I'd love that. ALL MY FAMILY IS DEAD Multiball, hell yes... Smell the Rotting Flesh bonus multiplier... My Kid Is Missing In The Forest Full Of Zombies Hurry-up. Wait, no, all that sounds like it would suck.

      Zombieland, Shaun of the Dead, Rob Zombie, Resident Evil, all those make a little more sense thematically.

      Enthusiasm is split between TWD and other zombie titles. How about the Romero or 2004 remake of Dawn of the Dead?

      we've just been watching this show and it's pretty awesome. If the machine is done right i'd be interested, but if it's boring typical layouts we've seen a million times, with same old everything..then no.

      Hm - Walking Dead was excellent stuff and I caught every episode religiously, I just don't think it would translate too well to pinball.

      I would be into it. I thought STTNG was a great game and hated the show with a passion so, since I am into the whole zombie apocolypse I would vote on TWD.

      Zombieland.

      I would be stoked on a Walking Dead pin but if I had a choice I'd easily choose an overall Night/Dawn/Day Romero trilogy themed pin. For me Pinball always seems more ideal for classic property and no so much contemporary licenses, even though manufacturers always want the current popular license.

      Walking Dead would be great; but Return of the Living Dead would be beyond awesome! Braaaaaaiiiiiiinssssss!!!!!!!!!

      Get in line... If it is The Walking Dead, I will quit pinball and GIVE my games to charity! We watch the show, but it seems like it would be a VERY weak title.

      Leave it a generic title, just Zombie Attacks, and they can put corn cobs in their chests.

      Zombie attacks...lol. Good one!

      Return of the living Dead! My all time favorite! Had to get carded in the movie theater in 1984! SERIOUS R rating on that one!

      "Oh no. Trash is taking her clothes off again!"

      Classic.

      Make your own theme pin and call it "Zombie Apocalypse" you cant go wrong. Everyone around the world can figure out that theme.

      black and white walking dead pin based on the comic ala Centaur would be sweet, but I'd pass on one based on the show. Same with Resident Evil - I'd buy one based on the video games in a second, but have zero interest in one based on the awful movies.

      Resident Evil would make a great LCD based game thanks to all the movies. Perhas release it with the next one as that white house battle looks like it will rap up the series nicely and earn it a pin.

      I think Jpop hit the nail on the head with Zombie Adventureland for a non serious take on Zombies, which seems to work. I like the Walking Dead series, but it's a very serious show with pretty much no light moments, and I can't see it translating well to a pin. Humorous Zombieland or Shaun of the Dead might work though.

      I am all for a zombie title just not sure I want it to be walking dead.

      Make it and make it good.. I will buy it.

      I wouldn't want a trans with Brad on it though, that would raise the cheese factor a little.

      I love the walking dead show, but it would seriously make for a bad pinball.

      Now resident evil, or custom zombie themed pin would rock. Good luck to Jpop and his team for BHZA!!!

      Almost all of my coworkers and friends watch the show and discuss on Monday. Then there's THAT guy; all by himself.

      I can't ask 'Who doesn't dig zombies' anymore. It's THAT guy! (Pointing to my right.)

      The Walking Dead is already proven to be a hit, and its still running. Thats fairly current, I would say.

      If anyone has any doubts on how cool the Zombie theme could translate into pin then check out Blindmankinds "Dead Hunters". One of my favorite Future Pin Tables.

      'Walking Dead' premiere gets fall's biggest rating

      http://www.cnn.com/2012/10/15/showbiz/tv/walking-dead-ratings-ew/index.html?hpt=hp_bn9

      (EW) -- The third season premiere of a basic cable zombie drama just delivered a bigger rating in the adult demo than any entertainment series this fall — including all broadcast shows.

      Sunday night's third season premiere of "The Walking Dead" delivered a huge 10.9 million viewers for its first telecast. But what's really impressive is the show's adults 18-49 demo rating of a 5.8.

      That's stunning.
