    Well there must be some great possible themes out there

    better ones still possible with LCD tech...

    Titles I'd love to see:

    Who's line is it anyway-
    "Where the shots are made up and the points don't matter"
    ~This game would reward by ball time in play (not trapped), and the points would be random till the end, the LCD would generate new 'rules' each ball in play and call outs would be 'appropriate for the game'
    Table would be divided into sections with common "Who's Line" games-
    When you light all of the ramps the game starts four ball 'Hoe Down' -
    High score table would be based on time per ball average and longest ball time.
    This game would work well in P3 type machine...

    Labyrinth- just a really cool theme- save the day OR side with the Goblin King- (alternate endings)
    Two Highscore tables, one for each ending reached.

    LEGO- mentioned this one elsewhere but LEGO where the 'theme' could change and the call-outs and points for bashes, pops and rollovers updated via USB... the possibles would me limitless... (or at least fun to build).

    Anything else dreamers?

    The happy ending pinball with a chick in the cabinet!

    #3 4 years ago

    Did you find a female pinhead's thread for this on purpose?

    J/K- nope I need rules and what 'multiball' (ahem) would look like... and how to get on the 'high score' table... (ahem ahem...) *snicker*

    Wait -I have a chick... (actually my chick, and my picture of the naked chick!)

    Just for you- IMG_3393.JPG

    Moneybin toy + jump ramp, making the shot collects jackpots and starts modes
    Character figures (a la Family Guy)
    A great art package

    #5 4 years ago

    I would like to see a pin based on the TV show "Community" featuring Troy and Abed's Dreamatorium.

    When you drain cousin Donald cusses in duck voice...
    "H,D,L" mulitball
    the beagle brothers are in the outlanes?

    #7 4 years ago

    - Futurama
    - Hitchiker's Guide to the Galaxy
    - Some type of synesthesia-esque pin scored by Radiohead

    I know, I'm really dreaming.

    The epic tales of Ron Jeremy

    #17 4 years ago

    I think the original Willy Wonka could probably be made into an interesting pin and some awesome colors too!

    You'd have to buy the shooter rod from the XXX shop

    #22 4 years ago

    Muppets, Space Balls, Firefly, Hitch hikers guide (1 of in works) , Ghostbusters (Flash Gordon LE).

    I would like all these titles to go mainstream.
    I really like the themes and off beat humor in all of them.

    #23 4 years ago

    1.) NHL 2.) Castelvania 3.) Ninga Gaiden 4.) Monsters of Rock, pinball the bands from the tour back in the day.

    #24 4 years ago

    Music pin. Pink Floyd, With Surround Sound, Bose Speakers(or similar), with 2 speakers placed behind the player. Laser topper.

    #25 4 years ago

    Id be in preorder on a Game of Thrones

    #26 4 years ago

    Bubba Ho-Tep

    #27 4 years ago

    Williams "Wizard Blocks" Would have been cool Pinball2000.

    #28 4 years ago

    Any SURFING theme.

    #29 4 years ago

    Night of The Living Dead

    #30 4 years ago


    The callouts would be amazing! Idiocracy would be one of the funniest pins ever made.

    Go away bating.jpeg

    If you have not seen this movie, you must.

    Best movie I ever paid $1 for.

    #31 4 years ago

    Scooby Doo for me as well.

    #32 4 years ago

    Muppets, Nightmare Before Christmas, Phantasm, Disneyland. Those are all my dream titles.


    #33 4 years ago

    Anything music or super hero related is a no go for this guy! Maybe Rat Fink, Knight Rider, or some other 80's tv theme. Who else would love to see a talking K.I.T.T toy?

    #34 4 years ago

    Band themed - Slayer
    Sci Fi - Blade Runner
    Action/Adv - Die Hard
    Comedy - Monty Python
    Horror - Creepshow

    My holy grail is a tie between The Running man and Total Recall, recall, recall, recall, I know it was planned but never happened DE I think but I would like it now by Stern.

    #35 4 years ago

    Pink Floyd's "The Wall"

    But I love my man...

    actually looking at the list of themes only ...

    3-5 depending on count are sexual themes... interesting...

    I love the Spy vs Spy vs Spy - then again I would, she always wins...

    Three ball multiball with two captured color coded balls and the reg- steel ball... whatever spy drains last gets to 'win' that 'round' and a clip plays on the LCD.

    #43 4 years ago

    On a whim, a few years ago I "created" a rough playfield, backglass sketch and exhaustive ruleset for a pin based on Terry Pratchett's Discworld series. It would be a natural for the European market.

    #44 4 years ago

    A horror themed one would be cool. Maybe a Freddy, Jason and Michael Myers type thing....with specialty balls that look like severed human heads..haha

    #45 4 years ago

    Very very cool!

    (both above)

    #46 4 years ago

    In any old book series (Hardy Boys or whatever) they usually named the next upcoming title at the end of the latest book to keep your interest up. Of course every series comes to an end sometime (when sales fall off) which results in the last book in the series naming a future book that never gets written or published. In the publishing world these are called phantom titles.

    When WMS made RFM and SWE in 1999 the next two Pinball 2000 games were scheduled to be Wizard Blocks designed by Pat Lawlor and Playboy designed by George Gomez. Gomex moved over to Stern and designed Playboy as a standard DMD pin which came out in 2001. Playboy would have been much better in the Pinball 2000 format, where the color screen projected onto the upper playfield could display countless Playmates (shoot ramps or targets to make them remove an article of clothing, etcetera).
