Quoted from NimblePin:

My ray of sunshine from this Beatles pin is believing that Stern will eventually do a Seawitch HD/2.0 re-skin for this new 2018 setu

Gary said at Expo that the official title is Seewitch

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

So yes, I'd say it opens the door to either releases or reskinned classics being done, just like Iron Man VE opened the door to the future of modern classics being rerun and/or redone. Oh the possibilities!


Nothing is stopping Stern from releasing Stingray or any of it's games again.

Stern is crazy smart to release as many games as it can, for the highest price it can; while the pinball market is still white-hot.

Remember, it was not that long ago that Beanie Babies were 11% of all of Ebay sales....

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Yup. It's exactly inline with the FLOOD of Beatles merch that came out during that initial wave of Beatlemania.

Beatles fans will buy anything

(yes, it's real, look at the great art on the packaging.)

Quoted from hawkmoon:

OK,backFlipper,when Paul sang about "Martha my love" Who was Martha????

Paul's sheepdog.

Paul always writes about his dogs; Jet was a dog too

Quoted from ZMeny:

My only point was that you talk about Beatles being nothing more than a $4500 pin but you then highly recommend TNA at $6k plus shipping.

I think he's saying that TNA has better music, so that's the difference in value.

Quoted from Pinstein:

I'm assuming the game will have multiball . . .

4 ball multiball

Quoted from CrazyLevi:

That’s not enough. I would prefer a 6-ball multiball.
Also 8 songs isn’t enough. I demand 10!!
Am I missing something????

There's just no pleasing you

Let's cry about no Coin Door !!!

Quoted from tamoore:

Reality: It has a door that you can't put coins in.

They should have made it a glass door, and then you could put a collector's dinner plate on display.

Quoted from jwilson:

There was no drawings to work from, and even if there was, they'd have to digitally re-create them anyway. Don't be obtuse.

There is a guy who builds brand new Fathoms from scratch and sells them for $8000

He just has a local company laser cut and bend the drop mechs for him

He is not a mechanical genius by any stretch of the imagination, so literally, if he can do it, anyone can

Quoted from Aussiepinwiz:

The Beatles changed the world. What did KISS do?

Wrote songs putting their logs in chick's fireplaces; not just holding their hands.

Quoted from jwilson:

Not you too, Vid. This isn't Seawitch, it just looks like it slightly. Different bottom, different loop, different drops, etc. C'mon.

Kinda like Fireball and Fireball Classic; close enough for hand grenades .

Quoted from solarvalue:

Cool, do you have a link?

A link would mean that he would have to pay licensing fees, and income taxes; he does not seem like that kind of guy.

Quoted from pinmister:

The 'Pin' was a huge failure

The Pin was a success.

It was the testbed for all the newer boards that Stern latter made mainstream.

It was also the testbed for a game that a broad could have delivered to her door for $2499 through Amazon.

#342 11 months ago
Quoted from kermit24:

If this initial run of 1K units (half the production) doesn't sell out at distros to customers, they may have trouble getting them to order the next batch next year.

Both this batch and the Jan batch are completely sold out.

If your distributor did not get an order in yet, he is already out of luck.

#344 11 months ago
Quoted from pinmister:

You can say it was a success because they used it as a proto for boards? Ok

Stern needed a test bed for a few things:

1. Would the brand new board sets work in real life conditions?

It would have been a Pinball Holocaust if Stern deployed Spike and they started failing in the field, loosing money for ops who already are on thin margins as it is.

2. Would the 2 year in-home warranty be viable?

Could Sterns existing service network handle the support, or would it end up breaking the bank. Remember, the target audience (single women, apartment dwellers bla bla bla) is not likely to own a soldering station, VOM meter, or be able to read a schematic.

I've been on 2 service runs for these, and both owners were as likely to be able to fix a pin as you would be able to recharge the coolant in your refrigerator.

3. Could a pin be shrunk down to several boxes and be safely delivered by UPS?

A single mom does not have time to wait all day for Roadway to drop a pallet in front of her apartment, nor is she able to carry a normal pin box up the stairs.

Stern had to design packaging that would protect the game from typical UPS drivers, yet fit under the size and weight requirements.

Quoted from pinmister:

I know they did not sell well-thus a failure

You are very short sighted, and obviously know nothing about about Stern sales numbers.

Stern sold EVERY ONE they planned on selling.

And, there are more The Pins coming.....Bahahahahahahahaha

Quoted from kermit24:

How big is this "Jan batch"? If you are telling me that distributors have ordered all 1,964 units I call total BS.

Clear your mind and think.

Only 900 games total are for the entire USA market.

Do you really think that 18 Beatles fans per state will not buy up all those games?

Quoted from Psw757:

Who the hell is Quincy Jones and what the F does he know about rock n roll?

He worked with "pony spotted penis" Michael Jackson.
