Quoted from Aurich:

Frankly the climate when Alien was announced in pinball was pretty different. It felt like if you didn't throw your card into the ring people were going to commit all their pinball funds to other pre-orders.

If announcing Alien prevented one person from putting down money on Predator or a JFlop game, then it was worth it.

Quoted from Colsond3:

I want this pin to be done already so I can rip some games on one. Without me going back through all 50 pages on this thread, anybody have any pics of the BG, cab and PF artwork they can post / repost?

No, but I trust the guy doing the art.

Bump for kaneda. He has spoken and demands updates!

#2241 3 years ago
Quoted from Jeekayjay:

So why bump then? Lol

It's so kaneda sees new activity and thinks there's an update.

Quoted from TigerLaw:

I agree. I'll check with the other mods and see if we have a volunteer to build the initial post with the current news (that takes some time...).

Here's the quick & dirty version:

Quoted from nephasth:

Really Pinstein? Linking GOT to this thread...

I hope they can release the backglass art for Alien soon just so we can link the correct game to this thread.

#2358 3 years ago
Quoted from MikeHogue:

Even if Aurich somehow manages to miss on the artwork, I'm still buying this game!
I expect the entire package is going to be killer!

Like he forgets that the theme is Alien[s] and puts the the Nebuchadnezzar there instead? Or focuses on Jones, hero of Alien? Doubtful.

I hear you just call a number on the back of the DVD and get full approval.

Quoted from colonel_caverne:

Do you think that is The end for original theme? Only licence will come for The future, whatever The manufacturer?

May depend on how Lawlor's JJP pin #3 does.

Good news, bad news, irrelevant news or no news - we can find a way to bitch and moan about it all.

"Home Improvement" struggled for years and years to get the personality rights to Wilson, but to no avail.

Quoted from Oldgoat:

Somewhat off topic, OK maybe a lot; however, when I was a young kid one of my friends got a spot on a TV ad for a local gas station. This was back in the 60's when businesses gave away stuff. It was the summer and they were giving away a free beach ball with a fill-up. I'll never forget going over to his house and seeing probably 100 inflated beach balls and 50 cases of non inflated balls in the garage. At first, I thought that was really neat...but then I started wondering why they didn't deflate some of them so they could get their cars into the garage and besides why do you need 1000 beach balls. So, yeah, keep your t-shirts and coffee mugs, I want $ and a cut of the action

His name was Tom Brady, and he's been deflating those balls ever since.

Are all the alians movies good?

Quoted from dannunz:

I just watched Alians 1 last night for the first time in 15 years.

Quoted from dannunz:

Look at the attention to detail Aurich put into the ACDC alternate translight. That is what I am hoping for Alians.

Quoted from dannunz:

What new innovations will Alians have? Thoughts

That'd be awesome, but somehow I doubt Fox legal would be trilled ...

Good point. Could be a good opportunity for an easter egg.

Quoted from Edenecho:

Will there be some mold around the stick to make it look more like the real alien inner mouth?

That's just Heighway keeping the Pinside mod creators in business.

#8379 2 years ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

I'm not sure what this has to do with you having concerns about Aliens, some of which are definitely legitimate.
If true, this is an absolutely bizarre thing to do in the first place, and even more bizarre to brag about. Apart from anything else, you'll end up getting yourself barred from events.

He's obsessed with Aurich and wants everyone to know. I was sick of it months ago. Reported for broken record.

Quoted from HoakyPoaky:

I've heard the same thing from many people. Wasn't there an issue with PDI glass production/availability recently? Thought I read that somewhere.

PDI is just the U.S. retailer. It's made by Roman in Germany, and this is his pinside profile:

https://pinside.com/pinball/community/pinsiders/magicjumpi

If there are production issues, he's the one to ask about it as he's the one actually making the glass.

That didn't last long 3 whole posts. Like I said our moderators are getting really good.

That has more to do with all of his posts getting deleted.

Quoted from HeighwayPinball:

We would LOVE to do that but unfortunately it will never happen with us. It's too far off the path that the licensor would want to go.
The best bet would be for a customer to commission a one-off cabinet themselves

That would a good mod project for this guy, as I doubt he's actually going to build complete Cthulhu pins:

3D is DEAD.
Most of the new 4k TV's being made today don't even offer the option.

True, which is why I bought a 2016 OLED with both 3D and 4K HDR
