    I heard at the York show it was Pink Floyd! First I've heard that rumor. I would actually consider a Karate Kid just because I'm a big fan of the movie. I'm not sure how well it translates to a pinball machine. I'd rather have a Back to the Future or Transformers 1984. My daughter and wife both said we would be buying a Stranger Things pin if they made one. I don't see that being the dream theme that was talked about.

    Back to the Future would be more relevant and popular then Elvira or TMNT. Theres a video on YouTube asking college kids if they know certain 80's movies. Only Back to the Future and Karate Kid scored 100%. I doubt many college aged students know about Elvira and it's probably only a bit better for TMNT.
