Look at Stern's FB page. Pro models being posted now.

#2 7 years ago

Layout kinda reminds me of Iron Man a bit. Don't like the face in the center.
Is that a cannon on the right sling?

#3 7 years ago

Elvis 2.0?

"price is right" losing sound is playing in my head.

#4 7 years ago

Looks fun, but I don't like the art.

#5 7 years ago

Darn, I was hoping for a flimsy Brian Johnson doll that went back and forth across the middle of the playfield.

#6 7 years ago

Poor artwork! The excitement for me is over on this one.

#7 7 years ago

Here's 12 pics of the game including playfield detail shots: http://pinballhead.com/acdc-pinball-pictureseditions-stern/

#8 7 years ago

Almost the same layout as T2. Interesting.

#9 7 years ago

What's up IM negative 2.0?!? (With a little T2)
Man that PF artwork is "something".... *coughs* Something AWFUL! *coughs*
Enjoy picking up that one for $8K!

I think it is the perfect time for Robin to instate my barfing emoticon...

Seriously. WTF?!?

#10 7 years ago

I like the jukebox cards on the back. The bell and TNT toy are cool. I don't think the cannon looks good at all.

#11 7 years ago

fACe/DC. WTF is with that face in the middle?

+1

Cannon looks very weak......the face in the middle, are you kidding me, that's horrible....yikes!

#13 7 years ago

I can't believe how hideous looking this pin is! The huge face in the playfield while ridiculously lame is obviously a mere placeholder for where the window into the lower playfield will be on the LE's.

Hopefully it plays good, because it is not a looker by any means...

#14 7 years ago

Face is probably Pro edition only. The lexan for the mini playfield will probably replace it in the Premium and LE editions.

#15 7 years ago

Gotta believe JJP is LHAO right now and licking his chops....

#16 7 years ago

Stern must have their calendar set on "April 1st", today...

Seriously though,
I really feel bad for the people who were anticipating this machine and saving their $$$, to be a great tribute/masterpiece to all things 'AC/DC'.

Now that I have seen this, I am very cool with Stern NOT doing an 'Iron Maiden' (<---The BAND) pin!
I don't think I could handle it...

#17 7 years ago

I'm a big AC/DC fan. I'd been saying that if and AC/DC pin was ever made, it would probably be my first NIB pin. Well after seeing the pics, I'm glad I'm signed up for a WOZ. No regrets.

#18 7 years ago

I have added AC/DC pinball to the Pinside database.

To start positive, that bell looks pretty cool, hit it and hear it DONG!

I really hoped to see wire ramps. Ah, too bad!

A cannon, seriously? That's so... Steve Ritchie (in a good way!)

Glad to only see one of those stupid QR codes. No one cares for those things, right?

Cabinet sides ROCK, unfortunately the backglass is not really, uhm, my taste.

Hmm, first reaction is that I'm not thrilled about the use of photos on the playfield. Why oh why is it so hard to hire an artist to do photo-realist art, I wonder. Or is that a limitation of the license?

Compare this to Guns n' Roses hand drawn artwork (Markus Rothkranz if I'm not mistaking), which is so much more pleasing to the eye and so much more creative:

gnr.jpg

I do like the style of drawing on that big head (beats a photoshop job) but agree with others here that it's too friggin' big! Man, it would have been so nice to see the whole playfield drawn instead of photoshopped.

The song selection is top notch, must be fun to play and rock simultaneously!

#19 7 years ago

They couldn't have put better looking ramps on it like they did with TF? bah.

#20 7 years ago

Ramps are........well I don't get it, at least TF has unique and cool ramps....

#21 7 years ago

I agree with....... well everyone. +1's all around.

#22 7 years ago

Nothing says "cheap" like a big, long, straight, plastic ramp....ugh...

I'm sure the Angus face won't be on the LE's because of the lower playfield, but they should have at least sprung for wire-form ramps.

#23 7 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

TF has the same ramps as Sopranos.

AC/DC looks like a rehash of Iron Man/Austin Powers....

#24 7 years ago

epic fail with big head in the middle. deffinately not interested in this one anymore

#25 7 years ago
Quoted from NimblePin:

I think it is the perfect time for Robin to instate my barfing emoticon...

Haha, I might. I just might... But then I would also need an emoticon to clean all the barfin mess up. It could get ugly in this thread.

Feel bad for Stern and Steve Ritchie in particular. Guess many people had high hopes for this one and I must agree that what we're seeing here (in terms of artwork) looks very, very poor.

Let's hope it plays better than it looks!

#26 7 years ago

Stern's on a roll!

Of bringing out cheap POS games, that is...

My god...

I look at the ST:TNG machine I just bought and marvel at the machine. Now, I look back to Stern's machines and think "zizzle on steroids". I'm almost glad it's so cheaply made. I won't be tempted to buy it.

#27 7 years ago

Did Stern really need to fill that LE playfield space with Angus' face? Its too overpowering for the rest of the art, save that minor detail looks to be a fun machine to play.

#28 7 years ago

what a let down !!!!!

#29 7 years ago

I mean't TFM ramps, very cool.....

This turdish looking machine has a lot of the T2 layout in it.....

The only way to salvage this one is to put a naked Salma pop up doll under the play field somewhere!

#30 7 years ago

All hail TFLE, maybe now people will appreciate a beautifully thought out, gorgeous game.

#31 7 years ago

Wowww. The face has to be a joke. Right? Please?

#32 7 years ago

I think you guys are forgetting .. this is the Pro model. Wait for the Premium / LE game (aka. the REAL pinball game)

No doubt. Gomez must have got some stuff past the bean counters.

They should have released pictures of the LE first. I am sure it would have gotten a better reaction.

Does it really matter at this point in time???
It would take a completely different game/PF layout, to sway everyone back!

Gomez must have got some stuff past the bean counters.

I must agree!
He probably depleted some of 2012's budget too!

Now TRS isn't looking too shabby in hindsight.

Kidding right? BBH is a work of art by comparison....TFM looked great IMO (didn't play well IMO), maybe this one looks awful and plays great.....

Or you could pick up a T2 and put the Back in Black playlist on the Dr. Dre Beatbox and spend a whole lot less dough!

#39 7 years ago

Jukebox looks super retro, kids won't know what it is.

jukebox.jpg

#40 7 years ago

I agree it's only the pro but. TF looked great from the get go.

#41 7 years ago

Man I love that Detonator...love that jukebox look in the rear too! Brings back memories. Like others have said though...that photo implant to the Playfield is like....well....hmmm....better not use those words in a public forum...hmmm....well....it STINKS!

Just a (mine) subjective opinion of course

#43 7 years ago

The face...the face....the faaaaaaaace!! Man that could haunt people in there dreams....scary.

Looks like Stern just gave people the "horns"!

#44 7 years ago
Quoted from vid1900:

ukebox looks super retro

The TNT toy and retro juke box look good to me....however, the retro juke box would go with a fifties theme pin...why couldn't they get a little creative with the song display and tie something into the back box for crying out loud....

This is the answer to upgrading quality versus JJP! Wow....The LE better be an ENTIRELY different looking machine with different features....

#45 7 years ago
Quoted from Pinballdad:

Subject away PBD!!!
It is the only way for them (Stern) to learn their lesson and make good on the next one from the input given here!

I bet this thread hits 200 by tomorrow morning!

#46 7 years ago

I think the LE with the face gone and a playfield in its place, and other improvements like drop targets and a nicer cannon, and maybe nicer ramps will be a good game. I like the art except for the face.

#47 7 years ago
Quoted from hawkeye11:

I'm excited. Love T2

#48 7 years ago

WOW - did you cats see the drop targets that are like piano keys?
next to the Axl Rose looking guy - Way to go Stern!

#49 7 years ago
Quoted from Snowdale:

All hail TFLE, maybe now people will appreciate a beautifully thought out, gorgeous game.

Much like Tron, TF is a great looking game except for the playfield. On Tron the playfield is merely okay looking while TF's looks like a bit of a mess in my opinion. The cabinets for both look great though!

#50 7 years ago

Sorry SR,

compared to the artwork of your last game "24" this is now a step in the wrong direction...
