Quoted from vireland:
I had heard that the license was re-upped on this and they'll be running more. Anyone else heard the same?
Not another one of these threads, lol. OK, lets dig in here-
Who did you "hear this from"? A reliable source, a guy at a pinball get-together, or someone who wants to buy an AC/DC and is hoping the prices come down? This topic has been hashed out several times. I did believe they were going to re-run AC/DC last year, but who really knows? Speculation is speculation. Bottom line is, people that want them say it's going to be re-done hoping prices will come down, people that have them defend that it won't to keep prices where they are. A person's speculation should be unbiased and based on reasonable facts IMO.
Stern has not said anything about the AC/DC license being renewed publicly that I am aware of.. they did mention that MET was renewed, however. I did some research on AC/DC a little while ago before I bought one and the general finding was that licensing for AC/DC was tough because of the break up with Brian Johnson and that they possibly did not want to use his likeness moving forward. There were rumors also (and I'm saying rumors, not verified) that AC/DC was unhappy with the initial license they had with Stern and what they were paid (for whatever reason, if true).
So, would you be interested in an AC/DC machine with Axl Rose? Or totally without the graphics of a lead singer?
Ideally, if they did re-do this and wanted to sell a ton, they should get Dirty Donny to do AC/DC art without the band members, imagine how kick-ass that would be?
And besides, I thought that Tron was the next Vault to be made, right? No one really knows! I just hope Stern keeps moving forward with new titles and vaults seem to hold that up.
But here we go, I hear that "insert title here" is going to be remade with no real proof. This also goes for PPS and whether they are remaking AFM, CC, MB, and so on. Its just gotten old.
