    I've been on a lot of threads and spoken to many others who would love to see a Back to the Future pin get made.
    I thought I would start this thread to see just how many of us there are out there and to discuss any interesting ideas you may have had about the possibilities of this game. I decided to make this a Stern thread because I can actually afford their games and they put out enough titles annually that it wouldnt be a decade away. If there really is enough BTTF love maybe someone in power will take note eventually. I would jump on a good BTTF game.

    I would be in i love the theme just needs to be a good playing machine as well.

    #3 1 year ago

    "I'm just here to trash Stern games" ... that made me LOL. I had to catch up last night in the other 'Next Stern Pin' post ... one dude is off the charts wacky on Stern. Anyway, 100% agree on a well-designed BTTF!

    #4 1 year ago

    I’d be pretty interested. Really great theme, lots of ideas there.

    #5 1 year ago

    Only if Lyman is on the code. Would rather have JJP make it. Either way I think a new BTTF pin would sell far better then Munsters, Elvira 3, and Jaws.

    #6 1 year ago

    BTTF is definitely a take my money pin for me.
    I'm over here still hoping that Beetlejuice isn't dead forever

    Why? JJP would kill the speed and flow and it would become a loaded mess.

    You mean two standard / orbits and little else on the playfield? That's your speed and flow from Stern. Flow is overrated at today's NIB prices in my opinion. Then if it isn't from Lyman expect basic rules based only off the first movie. Only JJP would load up the game up and do the theme justice.

    I guess a fan layout would be better?

    #10 1 year ago

    Would any one of you love to see stern stop doing irrelevant themes?

    #11 1 year ago

    I used my time machine to create a skewed timeline to jump into an alternate universe where Stern already created a bttf machine and it's great!

    speaking of which, anyone see the new movie documenting john delorean's life?

    #12 1 year ago

    Great theme. I would never instant buy anything based on theme, but I'd like to see the theme revisited by someone. I enjoy games by all of the major manufacturers.

    Yes I do. Its called a fan layout for a reason, people are fans of it. I know u are on ur knees in front of Jack but that doesn't mean I have to be or everything they make is great, so far with the exception of DI which is fun to shoot with a shit theme the games are stop and go loaded trash. Put that in ur pipe and suckle. Oh yeah.

    Quoted from Tranquilize:

    Yep.

    #14 1 year ago

    To be fair to Stern. Maiden and Deadpool (and Beatles technically) both came out last year and neither have a fan layout. Also, fan layouts can still be great as long as there are some interesting innovations going on and a solid rule set. Most of the top rated pins are fans.
    I just dont want it to have an upper or lower playfield. Not something I usually enjoy.

    I would rather see a Spaceballs ,Blues Brothers, or Jonny Quest pin. BTTF might come in a strong 4th place behind those.

    #18 1 year ago

    I’d buy one.

    #19 1 year ago

    Yes easily would sell one of my current pins for room to get a BTTF, LE please, topper better be good.

    Stern already surely knows plenty of Pinsiders want this game.

    So does deep root.

    So does JJP.

    So does everybody.

    Another desperate poll ain't gonna tip the scales I'm afraid.

    I voted yes ONLY because there was no option for "Please SOMEONE make it but not Stern."

    Assuming licensing can be clean, i.e. all video and audio secured, music secured, DeLorean imagery secured, etc - this would be so much better executed in the hands of JJP. I like Stern a lot but they just do not have the business model in place to do justice to such a treasured franchise....anyone who disagrees can take a look at Star Wars for evidence of that.

    Many people like to see a new one made, but not by Stern. Certainly would be nice to see that option in the poll.

    Now you've gone full troll mode lol. Not surprised. Have fun with your two standard ramps, two orbits and bash toy for $6k - $9k!

    Now if thats not the Troll calling the Kettle Black. Come on u don't come into a thread unless its to lick Jacks balls and kick Gary right in them. The comments are rife with douchebaggery here I'm afraid. "I hope its made but not by Stern" the stupid side of pinside is strong with this thread. I like the theme and hope its gets made for everyone else whos a fan but time to leave.

    I've been critical of JJP many times. Big difference is JJP delivered, actually over delivered, on Hobbit code in a reasonable amount of time while Ghostbusters owners continue to wait nearly 2 1/2 years for code to be completed.

    I keep hearing about this deeproot..what is that? Is that a pinball company? What do they make??

    #29 1 year ago

    A Back to the Future pin was already done by Data East in 1990. Why repeat and make a second pin. There are so many other themes/titles that could be make that have not been made yet.

    Or Batman '66 for the opposite arguement. I've explained why I chose to make this a Stern thread. Cleary you chose option 4.

    #32 1 year ago

    Star Trek, Star Wars, High Speed, Elvira, Black Knight...plenty of successful repeats. The Data East game sucks. This franchise deserves better.

    Gary has stated he has no interest in revisiting this theme. His answer is 'Been there done that ' .
    Time to move on he says .

    Cheers

    #34 1 year ago

    I'd be in on a LE without question. I have the Data East BTTF pin and it leaves a lot to be desired, and I'd love for something to make up for that.

    Or spend 10k+ on a machine that requires monthly repairs? (I'm mostly teasing but cost is a very real factor to me)

    #37 1 year ago

    If I got to choose it would be made at Stern with Ritchie, Sheets, and Franchi.

    I would be in no matter who made it though. Unless it’s a no name company that may or may not send me a game.

    #38 1 year ago

    If Stern wants another game that could sell on the level of Ghostbusters or Star Wars it's Back to the Future, if done properly meaning it needs to cover the entire trilogy. There's a ton of cool possibilities for an LE model.

    Imagine an LE with armour made out of the same grade of stainless steel used in the Delorean with laser etching on the outside + interior side cabinet lighting (like Star Trek LE) to create a time circuits / travel effect? Yeah, that would be amazing and would sell out very fast.

    Well, then imagine the code taking nearly 3 years to be completed...Hmmmm lol.

    For me
    Borg/Elwin/Eddy
    Sheats (obviosly)
    Zombie Yeti/Franchi

    A Brian Eddy, Lyman F. Sheats, Chris Franchi BTTF would be just about the best thing ever.

    Gary didnt make bttf either so what's your cough cough point? My point was he clearly has no problem revisiting themes as a company.

    #42 1 year ago

    BTTF by Stern?

    meh

    You forgot the "I'm just here for the insulting homosexual accusations" option.

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    Is Ghostbusters code completed in that alternate timeline?

    #46 1 year ago

    Licensing for Pinball is lame. Company X getting great license Y doesn’t mean much anymore. The license contract needs to include all the assets and the company needs to implement/execute them in the pin successfully. Lots more variables to worry about, especially with an LCD.

    #47 1 year ago
    Quoted from IonRay:

    No, in every timeline Dwight says "good enough"

    Lol. Dr. Strange said he jumped forward in time to view 14 million alternate futures. Only in 1 did Ghostbusters receive its update.

    #49 1 year ago
    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    No, in every timeline Dwight says "good enough"

    No code have fixed that game; a total throw-away design.

    #50 1 year ago

    They also made 3 Star Wars games so yeah lets try BTTF again and get it done right. Please.
