Oh yeah... Pong.... I remember this one.... a friend of mine had it but I just couldn't dig it... I'd rather go to the arcade play some EM's....

Ohhhh...the sexy MCI games! I wish I had snagged a few of those when the Time Travel Warehouse was around.

#5408 4 years ago

I was playing that Desert Fox at a bowling alley when they announced Hank Aaron hit his 715th home run.

I wonder reliable how the under-playfield switches will be over time. Very cool though.

#5418 4 years ago

Congrats...now you own Prometheus...yippee?

So far so good. I've had zero issues with the switches.

Until what? Are we waiting 3 days to see a working pin (video)?

Edit: Searching through the thread of all the random posts, that looks like what we're waiting for...

#5421 4 years ago

Wow! Great detail/s here. Built like a modern tank. This bodes well for the Alien pin.

#5422 4 years ago

Since we're all big Aliens fans I thought I'd pass this along. Mondo is releasing some pretty cool Alien schwag in conjunction with Aliens Day. Apparel, limited edition posters, soundtrack re-pressings on vinyl, etc etc. Someone might want one of those posters for your game room. Check it out

Looking forward to Tuesday!

#5425 4 years ago

To give you all an update - we have submitted a gameplay video to FOX for release on Alien Day.

I must emphasise that timings are tight and that there's every chance it won't be approved in time. But there's also a chance that it will.

If it's not approved for Alien Day then hopefully it will be approved soon after.

We will keep you all updated

#5426 4 years ago

Awesome news Andrew and team. I saw the early footage in Texas and was pumped up by that, so I am drooling for the new footage

Looking forward to this.

Andrew, does the video include a fully populated playfield?

#5428 4 years ago

Thanks for the update Andrew. Now I am buzzing and really need to see the video. Bring it on FOX .... the gauntlet has been thrown !!! Expedite your review and approval process before ALIEN Day 2016.

Awesome updates! Since guys were posting pics of vintage arcades, I had to share these. Can you guess which two new pinballs I'm excited about?

That Aliens arcade game used to be at just about every motel we stayed at as a kid. That and MJ's Moonwalker. Right next to the pool. You could smell the chlorine wafting off the pool while you'd jam quarters into Alien/Moonwalker all morning.

That Aliens was originally a Xenophobe. Sorta makes sense!

I really liked Sunset Riders back in the day...

#5433 4 years ago

Moonwalker, Space Fury, and Super Sprint are the few vids I'm still looking for...loved saving the kids with MJ.

3 more sleeps until Alien Day!

I'll let you know if I ever decide to sell mine.

Off-topic again???? OMG, this thread can't be saved anymore...

#5436 4 years ago

ahhhh super sprint (next passion to pinball ) that sucker soaked up a ton of my quarters !

Xenophobe had awesome art but spelt crawling from screen to screen wasn't much fun.

#5438 4 years ago

Does Alien have a spinner? If not it certainly should.

#5439 4 years ago

Xenophobe was a huge quarter muncher!

Yes. On the Left Orbit "C".

heh.... Not sure about the PF layout here.... too much common ground I guess.... not like Full Throttle which is very innovative!

Final playable pf feel and fun is all that matters. Liking that sharp LH ramp. Looks cool. Has some serious flow around the outer parameters too. Looking at it that is.

What, only one spinner I'm out.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

I'd love 3 myself.

#5445 4 years ago

A nice spinner shot with appropriate sound effects could really add to the sensation of running away...

#5446 4 years ago

The bones are still Nordmans design...it's gotta be good.

Seeing this again reminds me how much fun/ potential that upper right flipper is going to be!!!

For the record that playfield layout is ancient history. All those ramps & return rails have changed.

Well, that answers that....should have paid more attention to the pic.....admit...I'm starting to get really excited to see a flipping version soon....just feels like time for the proto to show up.....
