    Saw an youtube video of a 2013 BTTF slot machine.
    Sure a lot is possible for using assets of the movies. Even with images of M J Fox on it.
    So it would seem strange that a pinball could not be licensed.

    It should have great artwork, great toys but most important, a lof of movie scenes.
    Software that changes you in the 3 different movies/time zones (like skateboard chase being a double mode, one for the 50s, one for the future).
    Customs callouts by Doc.

    Mad Max please...based on first movie only.
    I've been thinking of doing a home brew from Corvette for this with a working blower for multiball.

    Quoted from Bublehead:

    My research shows only one provable common connection between pinheads and that is an affinity for mind altering experiences or substances, whether that be lights, motion, sound, music, adrenaline, weed, beer, hard liquor, wine, meth, or crack... which I think half of Pinside is on half the time.

    So pinball is a gateway drug and Pinside is full of degenerates. You sir, are correct and have won the internets.

    Yes:

    However, slot machines are expensive, and they bring in a TON of money so licensing is never an issue for gambling. Just about any movie you can think of, there's probably a slot machine (complete with the soundtrack and every actor's likeness)

    Teenage boys don't buy 6k toys.

    Sure. Instead we have games themed for children now.

    Or grownups that wish they were still children.

    Quoted from Pwaka1986:

    They did make a Transformers pin.... The people who like those movies are the same fans as the Fast and Furious movies. They'd probably do ok. Not my cup of tea, but it would sell...

    I can't possibly dissagre with this more.

    The Transformers movies are all complete garbage. The Fast and the Furious movies are all pretty cheesy, but they are almost all great popcorn flicks.

    Quoted from Jakusu:

    Mad Max please...based on first movie only.

    First movie is great, but not very pin-worthy as far as visuals go. It's more of a dystopian drama. I'll take the Road Warrior or (even better) Fury Road when it comes to pinball. The extended chase scenes in those films are basically multiball with cars.

    Quoted from ectobar:

    Transformers are cartoons and toys for children going back to the 80s. And movies that were meant to capitalize on those that played with those toys and watched those cartoons. Pretty bad computerized effects for sure.

    F+F represents the modern street racing culture. And is still very relevant to the 21st century. The later movies have become a little over the top, but can still be very entertaining to those that like action and real special effects.

    honestly, I like both franchise's original movie. it's the over the top sequels that ruined them for me.

    So it's your view that the first movie aboot transforming robots coming to earth and destroying everything was not "over the top?"

    #261 5 months ago

    I sat in a dentist's chair and watched most of that first Transformers movie or would have never been enthused enough to watch it on my own.

    Personally, having my teeth drilled was more enjoyable than watching that long, drawn out turd.

    True they buy 40k civics.

    Quoted from ralphcousman:

    True they buy 40k civics.

    Well their parents buy them.

    F&F is a demographic mistake for pinball just like WWE. Plus Mustang was considered a failure so nobody is going to give it a chance anyway.

    I'm so glad in the 1980s people weren't consumed with remaking 1950s movies and we got a fun original movie called... Back to the Future.

    #267 4 months ago

    Won’t happen anytime soon both Director and creators of BTTF Robert Zemeckis and Bob Gale have gone on record many times and said that another film would be over there dead bodies.

    As they have creative control they won’t allow Universal to do a reboot/remake, until there dead and even then they will try to stop it with their estates.

    I know what you're saying but remakes are a cyclic thing and will always be. Nostalgia and trends works the same. There are PLENTY of 50's remakes and inspiration for 80's movies. The Thing, The Fly and The Blob are only a few.

    Why? Because kids that grew up in the 50s and 60's to become filmmakers watched them and were inspired to do their own thing with them as adults in the 80's.Same thing is happening right before your eyes now. Kids that grew up in the 80's and 90's are making movies and TV heavily influenced by their childhood era movies. Stranger Things is perhaps the best current example.

    EDIT: With that said, I hope they never ever touch BTTF, even after Zemeckis is gone.

    Also same with cars , the age class with the buying power dictates prices and styles.

    60~year olds love cars from their highschool and college days, muscle cars big v8s etc , but 30 year olds would probably have a Supra , NSX, RX7 95-97, 300zx. So when the 30 years olds get older they will restore japenese cars rather than those American muscle cars because those are the cars that were popular when they were in their formative years.

    Enjoy the time you live in , help others enjoy pinball

    I'm glad the 80s are long gone, period. 50s I don't even remember because I wasn't alive.

    Living in the past gets stale real fast I'd imagine. Unless of course, that's all you've got.

    You're wrong of course.

    Living in the past romantasizing about things that have actually been totally different gives us things like pink neon and modern 80's "Synthwave" Music.

    Music that reminds us of the 80's while I honestly have no clue why.

    No, I don't live in some fantasy world while the real world passes me by. Otherwise I'd be just another antique. Lame.

    Actually you do exactly that, posting on pinside while actual important things happen around you.

    At work mostly when there are no customers. And if I didn't have a job, then again, I might turn into some kind of antique.

    But where I do work, I get to deal with all different people, many who are living in the now and I soak it all up.

    You imply that it is a binary decision.... either live in the past or live in the present. Life isn't quite so black and white.

    True.

    When old people come in, I respect them and do pay attention to them and listen intently about how it was when the Japs bombed Pearl Harbor, or what it was like to have had one of the first Ford Model As off the line. I'm always looking for a good history lesson.

    I'll even listen to the dude with a mullet and a Bon Jovi shirt on, but not for long.

    I can't remember where this comes from.... "Remember your past, but don't let it haunt your future". I think its a pretty good way to live.
