    If this is true, pinball keeps finding more and more ways to help keep my money in my pocket.

    Thanks guys!

    Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

    "TEASER: The license is an 80s movie many people have been craving!"

    Oh snap!

    Quoted from TheCapn:

    dont get your hopes up.

    Really? If this doesn't happen, I don't know how I could go on.

    Quoted from TecumsehPlissken:

    1980's movie with lots of Smoke ....... Spark it up man

    Nothing to do with the 80s, man. Try 1978.

    70s were a way better decade anyway, don't know why they want to waste time with any of this 80s crap.

    #72 10 months ago

    I keep trying to think of something that was actually cool from the 80s , and it always comes back to Sledge Hammer.

    Quoted from iceman44:

    Here’s a clap

    Have you seen a doctor about that?

    #91 10 months ago

    Let the guy who takes his car to an auto shop where one of the mechanics got acquitted of armed robbery on a technicality and never paid back a cent of it be the first one to throw stones.

    #127 10 months ago

    I'd expect we'll be seeing that Toho Godzilla pinball machine first.

    #129 10 months ago

    It's pretty obvious that theme from the 80s with sparks and smoke that everybody has been asking for is Bon Jovi.

    Quoted from Rarehero:

    No one should be buying these games blind PERIOD, from any company. This practice has led to business decisions that aren't good for the customer. Incomplete games & untested games.

    So, did you ever get your TBL or your money back?

    #136 10 months ago
    Quoted from iceman44:

    If pigs had wings they could fly.........

    And people that live in glass houses should probably not throw stones.

    #141 10 months ago
    Quoted from Captain-Flint:

    I am excited about it just being an 80s movie theme

    Yes, the thought of that makes me want to jump up and down.

    #148 10 months ago
    Quoted from benheck:

    Then - thanks to their 80's adventures - they learn what it really means to socialize.

    Yeah, they can go back and watch the parents of the 80s go out and socialize while their kids sit home like zombies and play Nintendo all day and night. So much has changed since then...

    If they were going to make a new BTTF, they would probably want to use a more interesting decade like they did with Dazed and Confused.

    #155 10 months ago
    Quoted from Spencer:

    Now this is interesting!

    Sure. You've got people saying don't do business with this company because of one employee, but do they do background checks on all the employees where they grocery shop, buy gasoline, get their car fixed, get their hair cuts, etc?

    Time travel movie from the 80s?

    Sure enough!

    Quoted from TheLaw:

    Biggest Lie of the 80s putting Carpenter's name on that thing.

    Yep. This one was better anyway.

    Quoted from PanzerFreak:

    Yup, looks like no BTTF pinball by Deeproot or any manufacturer based on the comment below.

    That's great news!

    It's one thing to recycle themes from the past, but themes of games that have already been done in the past seems especially lame.

    Quoted from yancy:

    Worldwide total franchise box office gross:
    BTTF: $961,613,516
    Star Wars: $9,299,479,675 (10 times as much)

    BTTF: 3 films over a 5-year span, newest one 28 years old.
    Star Wars: 10 films (11 if you count Clone Wars) over a 41-year span, newest one 6 months old, with more on the way.

    How about the Fast and Furious franchise?


    8 films over a 16 year span with more planned on the way.

    All released in the 21st century

    Numerous licensed arcade and sit down driving games

    And the biggest number of all-

    ZERO... pinball machines.

    #230 9 months ago
    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    I'm sort of amazed there isn't one.. the arcade got a game.

    It is either because the pinball manufacturers are so out of tune with the 21st century, which has become pretty obvious lately, or there hasn't been enough demand for it on pinside is all I can think of.

    #255 9 months ago
    Quoted from benheck:

    Teenage boys don't buy 6k toys.

    Sure. Instead we have games themed for children now.

    Or grownups that wish they were still children.

    #258 9 months ago
    Quoted from ectobar:

    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.

    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.

    #261 9 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.

    Quoted from frolic:

    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.

    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.

    #273 8 months ago
    Quoted from DS_Nadine:

    You're wrong of course.

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

    #275 8 months ago
    Quoted from DS_Nadine:

    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.

    #277 8 months ago
    Quoted from robotron911:

    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.


    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.
