Quoted from Charlemagne1987:

Rumors say JJP has The Muppets license

I was just speculating but if BoF had the Labyrinth license years ago, they might actually have Muppets

Maybe Jersey have Mario

There are real rumors that JJP has Muppets though, industry rumors. Interesting detail though, BoF was onsite at Henson studios a few months ago so there is a "chance" the have a relationship and have Muppets. But think about this for a second, I'm not sure rolling two Henson pins back to back really seems like an ideal business strategy. It could be? Or it could be better to diversify more, build your brand not tied to any specific IP. David said months ago that people were going to be blown away at their next game.

My gut and the wind tells me that BoF doesn't likely have Muppets or if they do (somehow), it wouldn't be pin number 2. There were also rumors they might have the Gremlins license and its worth noting that Gremlins 3 has been green lit. Original cast still alive returning and Chris Columbus penning the script. That is slated for a release I think in 2026. So keep that in mind too, though I can't recall where that rumor emerged from. It was late last year.

All in all though, I just got delivery on my Labyrinth on friday. The game is built.like.a.tank. and it feels and flips like a 90s Williams/Bally game but with all the modern sheen and uplift modern technology and industry provides. The code and geometry is crafted by industry vets and the game feels like it attracts casual walk ups but is just difficult enough to never leave a collection. My Labyrinth is built and feels far superior than all three of my Sterns and I mean that respectfully to Stern. Its really just an excuse to shout out to the BoF team for their attention to detail and its very apparent they are passionate about pinball and building a successful platform.

Whatever BoF releases next, regardless of theme is going to be amazing.. I'm sure of it. They've got one game under their belt so they still have to work to do. But if they crush their second pin the same way they have Labyrinth we'll have ourselves a new industry darling as a manufacturer.
