Quoted from nwpinball:

Doctor Who doesn't have a traditional plunger, skill shot is from the right flipper after the ball drops, it's never bothered me at all.

Not only doesn't it have a traditional plunger, but it doesn't have a skill shot either

Quoted from way2wyrd:

you apparently cant or wont read.

You should take your own advice.

And then maybe remove your downvote?

Quoted from Travish:

I remember her speaking in the movies. She should be in there. "Get away from her you bitch" comes to mind.

THIS. I assume the object of the game is to get to and kill the queen. How can you do what without using Ripley's callouts? It would be like being Brad Pitt's brother Doug. Looks like Brad... but... just... not... quite... there.

I'm surprised that there is no 'toy' on the pf of the Weyland Corp/Caterpillar P-5000 Power Loader. Looks like there's room behind the pop bumpers for someone to make an unofficial mod. Something along the lines of the TZ Robby Robot mod would look nice.

Quoted from PACMAN:

I don't want to have to identify as a woman to play pinball.

Maybe this can help you with your issues

Hey guys, I think I may have cracked it of why Sigourney Weaver may not have said Yes to being in Alien Pinball.

While reading the trivia on IMDB for the Alien vs Predator movie (http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0370263/trivia?ref_=tt_trv_trv), I found this:

(Underlined and CAPITALIZED emphasis by me to make my point)

While this film languished in so-called "development hell" for years, 20th-Century Fox considered producing a fifth film in the "Alien" franchise instead. James Cameron, who wrote and directed Aliens (1986), had written a script and even approached Sigourney Weaver to star and Ridley Scott to direct, both of whom expressed interest. When_the_studio_decided_to_use_the_Alien/Predator_crossover_story_instead,_Cameron,_Weaver_and_Scott_all_distanced_themselves_from_the_project,_and_later,_declared_THEY_WOULD_NEVER_WORK_ON_EITHER_FRANCHISE_AGAIN. Several years later, Ridley Scott ended up reworking his pitch into his Alien prequel Prometheus (2012).

Could this be why there's no Ripley in Alien pinball??

Quoted from Yipykya:

That would be fantastic if the zenomorph head is painted to look like the early released picture. In the flyer pics it appears the shiny wet shadowed look is now a dry matt finish missing the color depth gradients on the top of the head. Is it the paint detail differences I'm seeing that Fox changed?

Having just watched Alien vs Predator, even though this game is not based on that movie, if I ever owned this pin, I would mod my Alien head to resemble 'nethead'. http://www.imdb.com/title/tt0370263/trivia?item=tr2657535

Quoted from dmbjunky:

Did they ever bring Aliens to Earth? I don't recall that they did which is kind of odd.

AVPR: Aliens vs Predator - Requiem (2007)

oh and technically also Aliens vs Predator (2004) which was on Antarctica

#8737 4 years ago
Quoted from OLDPINGUY:

No, They never did bring an Alien Queen to earth.

I'm confused. Are you stating that AVP and AVPR are not Alien movies? They're not Alien 5 & 6 so to speak? AVP had an alien queen in Antarctica. AVPR was on Earth but didn't have an alien queen.

Quoted from keithrh76:

I was wondering how hard it would be to build a cabinet for the wall to hang the playfield in, maybe even plug it in while not in use to light it up during fun time.

Are you listening HeighwayPinball? Another option to add to your options list? Build a box that the playfield plugs into and runs some 'attract/lighting code' which is mountable and displayable. Maybe even have different models with options like speakers with an on/off switch?? I'm sure you would sell a lot of these.

1) I have downloaded Zen pinballs version of Alien/s. Lets hope heighway capture the same audio atomosphere OR BETTER as zen does.

2) And noticed ripley quotes and sigourneys likeness is in Zen. How did they get licensing and heighway not?

In case preordering the machine isn't enough for anyone, you can also preorder this for a nice topper:

You might wanna read the comments on that page before ordering that one... Seems a bit lame.
