Lots of interest still in AC/DC premiums, Stern ran very few Luci's, Ive been told ~200~ which is truly unknown to most of us but seems fairly accurate.

Did Stern produce too few of these? Do we want another run?

I have a feeling they will run them again. They will be an easy sell for Distributors. Look what I saw in a Stern office window.....

Hopefully that would be cool. Nice find

Better NSFW that pic. Someone here's going to blow a gasket with her bent over the box like that.

(Also... OMG, decal fade! Get her away from the window!)

#4 4 years ago

forget the decal, who's the hottie in the window reflection?

Smassa is awesome!

You are fun.

Nice! Some pinball parts in a pinball office, who knows what it could mean!

#9 4 years ago

Probably

#10 4 years ago

Of course, they are going to rerun everything...Trons, LOTR, ACDC, SM, Avatar, WoF, you name it. If someone wants it, then it will be done!

I voted "No because I'm a douchebag" lol

But if they remake then I hope parts are a-plenty and they make some cool toppers and toys.

#14 4 years ago

They should remake it just for the awesome poll choices in this thread

#15 4 years ago

They could sell 300 easy if they did another run.

#16 4 years ago

They're working on it right after my Tron ships.

I have been told 100 more, so 300 ? Lets call it 250 just to be safe .

#18 4 years ago

No.

#19 4 years ago

License is expired. Too expensive to justify a small run.

#20 4 years ago

No. Based on the wording of 3 of the 4 choices where's the "Yes, I'm upset at seeing HUO ACDC Premiums maintain their value and have no interest in buying one"...lol.

#22 4 years ago

I'll put $50.00 on "not going to happen."

What's your time frame? Because you are wrong.

#24 4 years ago

It's not limited, so you can bet they'll run it again! Why not?

Believe it or not, I have the power to make Stern do another run of AC/DC. All I have to do is pickup an AC/DC from the Marketplace for $8k. The very next day, Stern will announce the release of a special AC/DC premium that shoots fireworks out the side. Guaranteed.

There is a Big Bang Bar for sale in my area and have thought about possibly buying it...but I'm like you...if I were to buy it, someone would do a remake of it almost immediately!

Relax, it's just NOS sideart laying around...

OK, you win a crisp $50 bill if you are right, if I win I get to nut punch you. Deal? You aren't afraid of a guy who carries a purse are you?

#30 4 years ago

Just to put into perspective.

Say they run another 400 and distributor cost is $6000 (ball parking).....thats 2.4 million in gross revenue......something they can crank out in what, 2-3 weeks?

#31 4 years ago

Nooooooooo!!! Don't say anything don't even breathe a word of placing a bet. The thread is sure to be locked!!!

We'll see. Stern is not going to pay AC/DC $500,000 to run a couple hundred games. The wouldn't even pay $100,000 option to extend the license for 12 months last December. Now that it has expired, the price has gone up. I admit nothing is impossible, but Stern has plenty of sales and plans going forward, no need to shell out more money. They still have the Metallica License for 5 more months and they refuse to make any more premiums, that are still in demand. Business is good.

You keep ignoring the licensing factor. Licensing for small runs is cost prohibitive. Music licenses are more expensive than other licenses. Also, making a small run of parts is expensive. It's not "easy" to re-run a game. If it was so simple to run a batch of a few hundred...don't you think we'd have seen more Trons? LOTRs? TSPP? Pretty much anything? How about Metallica Premium - and that's UNDER license!

AC/DC is done, people.

I don't think they can get MET premium play fields made in time with all the other pf's they have being made/ on order. Just a hunch on that... I have no inside info, Im ASSuming.

Since when do you need a license to make a pinball?

I just theorized on that....or is it hypothesized?

Oh!!!! They also knew they would be moving to the new facility and thought they wouldn't be able to make the 100K worth it at that point in time......but now they are up and running full steam! Boom!

Understood Ice, it wouldn't be cheap, that is why it would take a few years. Metallica premiums are coming.....

Isn't this true regardless of what premium title they pump off the line?

It's not like they can't sell the machines they are currently making... Plus they have a backlog of MMr machines to build and then the AFMr machines, etc. Oh yeah, then the LOTR VE machines....

If stern was struggling to stay busy, maybe they do this, but that doesn't even seem remotely like an issue...

#41 4 years ago

Isn't Stern working on a soon to be released AC/DC VE with all comic book art?

#42 4 years ago

Actually I think they're working on a new version: ACDC Rosie!

It'll have an inflatable "Rosie" that comes out during "Whole lotta multiball!"

Or maybe my boys heard wrong.

How we feeling today about more Luci's? Ive searched through all the couch cushions for extra coins to get my payment ready!

#46 4 years ago

Dont really care... I bought mine when they where Available.

If it's true I'm in!! I found some coins in my car cup holder and some in a junk drawer. I need a several more "coin" spots to get my preorder going

#48 4 years ago

I heard Luci has "got some 'splainin to do" after being depicted on the last batch of ACDC's.

Planning on WoZ later this year, an AC/DC re-run would probably screw up those plans and I'd get that instead.

It's a good thing they're not being re-run so I don't have to make that choice! I'll pick up my shiny new AC/DC with my LOTR VE!
