    I’m callin’ it:

    Cactus Canyon for the imminent 2021 remake release.

    Queen for the original CGC machine.

    Queen would be a day one minute order. Do they even have the license?

    Thought Stern had the Queen licence?

    I do not think anyone has the Queen licence. Just a rumour.

    Cactus canyon .... 20??

    Original a quick 5 years after that .

    Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

    Absolutely agreed that Queen would be an immediate must-order. All I know is that the original design CGC machine is “going to be epic”, and a tech acquaintance insists it’s 90%+ going to be Queen. I’m out here on the prediction limb because this “source” is a no-BS guy and I’ve wanted a Queen machine for 30+ years.

    If my “guy” is wrong, then I hope Stern will make a Queen pin soon.

    Fair enough. Here’s hoping my “guy” is correct, though. Queen would be a chart-topping theme.

    The wait is really getting crazy. I'm amazed they are mostly missing one of the best times ever to be selling new pinball machines. Sure, they made more MMr last year but obviously WAY underestimated the demand. I really hope the wait isn't much longer but definitely not holding my breath.

    Well, Pinball Brothers had/have Queen license.

    Would be nice if CGC beat them to it!

    #267 2 days ago

    I would love a Queen pin although my hope would be JJP would make the game and not Stern

    Sorry all - yawn - I like Queen but another music pin from a band that hits a certain age group who has money.

    If anything is getting played in the pinball world it is the pinpoint targeting of a demographic that has money to spend on bands from yester-year.

    I hate to say it the only company who likely can afford the license would be Stern and they can find a way to ruin a theme faster than anyone. I don't see any of the Stern titles lately being bolt to the floor stuff. I see huge hype of a pin like Led Zeppelin as an example of how to be super in demand and then just fall into normal everyday stuff. All the music pins have some limitations (limited appeal, limited license, etc.) and when compared to JJP GNR on what they can do (like GNR or not) it is hard to say anyone can get the kind of cooperation from a band like they did. Do you really think someone can afford Queen's license to do it right?

    I think the best plan for CCG is to stick to solid remakes and maybe an original title with an experienced designer. Sure Queen the theme would be good but come on they will limit songs and honestly I am not looking for a jukebox pinball like they say Led Zeppelin is supposedly (not played it - not a huge fan of the band so won't own it, I think it is ugly too).

    Everyone has a dream theme and a company who should manufacture it. I don't think you would want CCG have their first original pinball a licensed music theme.

    #271 2 days ago

    Well, Heighway could afford and did have the licence and got as far as this......

    #272 2 days ago

    The last thing I would want is for CGC to try to do a Stern-style music-themed pin - regardless of what band they choose. No thank you.

    Even remaking Popeye would be better than this...(though maybe only a little).

    No more ancient rock bands. The hobby needs to attract new people or this whole experiment ends. We only get there with either licensed themes on games and movies. It's not easy to find timeless pop culture. But no one wants a Buddy Holly pinball machine for some reason...it's like all the people who grew up on it are gone.

    And the Bible. DR has that cornered.

    Dang,
    That looks like a fun game.

    Quoted from Flip-Pin-Out:

    Man I hope your guy is right. If done right Queen would blow away GNR and Led Zeppelin. Queen has to be one of the greatest bands ever and I am a huge LZ fan.

    Freddie’s voice is hard to beat and the music is a heart pumping masterpiece. We Will Rock You alone would make a killer multiball. Have Bohemian Rhapsody start a mode and when the hard part kicks in have a 6 multiball start at that moment.

    Fat Bottom Girls, Some Body To Love, Under Pressure, Killer Queen, Crazy Little Thing Called Love, and so many more. Definitely would be an LE purchase for me.

    Boy I hope this is true and happens. Queen would be the one all be all Rock pin if done right.

    Quoted from fnosm:

    Sure was a great licence they had - LIVE QUEEN.

    I see they had power chords in that game, just like GnR!

    Queen is still relevant today and the movie Bohemian Rhapsody was a huge hit. My kids are aged 13 to 26 and they all love Queen. GnR is ancient as you say and that sold very very well. And ancient guys like me born in the 70’s who have the money and point in life to buy pins. Queen would be a massive hit and I know would sell amazingly.

    CGC will pretty much be printing money. Queen is still mainstream. Hell, a cruise line used a Queen song for its commercial. You are wrong about ancient rock bands. Led Zeppelin is selling well and there is a demand there. Rock n Roll music and playing pinball is a match made in heaven.

    Those who grew up listening to Queen and playing pinball will definitely have interest. Even casual fans of Queen will also. I don’t know many people who change the channel when a Queen song comes on the radio. And make a Queen a pin, day one the second preorder goes live for me. Wont even have to ask the wife.

    She would just look at me and say “DUH! Hell yes I want it.”

    Dude, Queen is great. No argument there. I like the music. Wouldn't say a fan, but you're right about the tune coming on and having a smile on my face.

    My point's more about continuing the art of pinball. You grew up pinball. I did too, albeit on DMD early 90s stuff (born in 80). But we both grew up having a pin burned into our brains. How do you get that same experience for kids? Addams Family was a killer pin and family focused so it brought in the kids. Now it's bringing in adults, with money like you say.

    Hell, Queen could be timeless. Who knows. Beethoven's timeless. I'm reminded of that Futurama where Fry is listening to Sir Mix a Lot and Bender says, "ah listening to classical I see."

    It would make absolute good business sense for CGC to make a rock pin. They sell extremely well. GnRs, IMDN ACDC Met to name a few.

    I hope CGC do have the Queen licence, they would sell bucket loads of games.

    If done right it will most likely sell very very well. GGC could have one of the most successful rock pins on their hands in my opinion. If they have the gameplay and flow of a classic pin with a killer light show and cabinet art, and music, count me in.

    Take the light show of GnR and the flow and play of Led Zeppelin combined with a Queen song set, will be something to behold and have. Need to stop and not get any hopes up. Hopefully we here something this year.

    This is interesting. Spotted this on a recent YouTube video from Roger Taylor (Queen's drummer).

    That’s awesome he has some pins!! Definitely a plus for us. Hopefully he would love to see a Queen pin but not with Adam Lambert.

    Queen is not relevant today. 2,000 people may buy em, but ya’ll are old. But you can change and get with it!

    Lonely Island, Tenacious D, Rammstein, and others are relevant today.

    #290 2 days ago

    If there is a use for a cluster of pop blumpers in 2021-its is to start a super-pop mode playing spotifys #1 song for Lonely Island...

    Combine that with some red light insert, GI wizardry-ya got something

    #291 2 days ago

    I bet someone can get Marilyn Manson license on firesale these days.

    Also. Yes...yes...I am sure a Queen themed pin would sell like bisquits. But..what modes? Diana Running from the press?

    #292 2 days ago

    Modes...where Stern’s going, they don’t need modes...

    Or...two lane entrance to boring three cluster pops with keith elwin up posts. After a number of activations. Posts activate, pops deactivate to
    “The bad touch” by bloodhound gang... not some skank ass old tune ya listen too before the party starts.

    Yes Rammstein, with fire torches, smoke and steam jets coming out of the back box, a new mech idea - a treadmill lane that throws the ball back at you (sorta like spinners). Maybe it has a target at the end of it, or maybe it's an orbit.

    That being said...we are old too...All of those bands are old...just not as old as Queen lol.

    Rammstein would be legit though lol.

    Throw some coolio ganstas paradise in there for the extra balls, keep the smoke coming from the backbox, but kill 85 percent of all lighting. Haha

    Someone, somewhere is reading this on a manufacturer team thinking “what are we doing!?!” Get it done fellas.

    Please. Queen is more well known and more popular than all of those you listed. Guarantee more than 2000 people would buy it. Your young and you have time to grow up and appreciate things that are good and timeless. Queen is mainstream, Rammstein is not.

    #297 2 days ago

    The problem I see with Queen is that it would be so popular that CGC would have a 5 year long wait list for it. CGC hasn't exactly shown the ability to manufacture games at high rates. MBr took quite a long time to get into buyers hands once they started producing. Its almost as if they only build pins when the other side of the business is slow.

    Agreed. They have a company that is capable of building high quality pins and games that are in demand but seam to not care if they are producing. Pinball sales have hit a recent high and they are missing out.

    It’s like CGC treats there pinball division like the red headed step child. Gives it some attention but not much.

    I do think it is strange that they have not continued to produce games while developing their next title. There is still an underserved market for MMr (and probably AFMr also). I don't know what the holdup is for their next title, but it seems like they could be producing MMr units in the meantime.
