Is this another one of the stern home pins?

#102 65 days ago
Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

That tiny little Elvira on the playfield is a joke. Sexiest character in the history of pinball needs a massive presence on the playfield.
Take that anyway you want.

Johnny Depp even got a bigger face on Pirates by JJP.

#103 65 days ago
Quoted from rubberducks:

Not sure if being ironic or not ... it looks ... EMPTY.

Was it my sarcastic tone or the eye roll at the end that hid my meaning? If I'm being misread I will need to know so I am even more_ sarcastic about the next completely empty game.

Emote wasn't showing up.

I agree, but one often sees dozens of similar posts on these threads that are not tongue in cheek at all ... hence my being unsure.

It's difficult to imagine how empty the Pro's going to be.

Ain't going to be a pro

#106 65 days ago

Looks like a good 5k pro level game. The problem is that it's likely to be more like 7.5k and up.

#107 65 days ago

Wouldn't it be something if Stern priced it at $4,995.00 an blew the competition out of the water?

They'd sell several thousand of them.

No Pro on this title.

This is the only complaint that will really hold up/ you can't neglect (since we've not seen what the toys/ the house does, if the game has lots of subways, will be free, what the code is etc. - so impressions still might wildly change).

Elvira is about... Elvira. And her... "Assets".
So where is she?

I get the "movie" theme the game has but she could at least be lieing on the couch, "moderating" things.
That would fit the theme.

She will on the LCD - hopefully in clips spanning her long career - both movies and her Horror Shows - cracking jokes and guiding you through the game play!

Hopefully Elvira 3 has tons of clips - just like Batman 66!

#111 65 days ago

The old lady cleavage you guys long for is on the backbox. It's like, 10% tittie, just for you!

Shots look very tight, like some on GB. If Lyman makes stand-ups important, like war machine on IM, it will help with the frequent missed shots. Looks like it could be fun, but It appears to lack in originality. At least they put some models on the PF so it doesn't look as bare as BKSOR. If it has a real subway (we know it doesn't) it would be pretty decent for a non-Elwin Stern....

No doubt, but I like some art on the playfield nontheless.

With all the inserts or the playfield there is no room for a large pic of anything on the other hand nice pair on the back glass

Yeah - No Pro model would be, or is a dirty shame.

No way this is true. No damn way!

Not true, dealers don’t even have info till tomorrow. No one will buy at that price.

#118 65 days ago

Looks exactly like AFM except house instead of spaceship.

#119 65 days ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

They couldn't do a pro model of it. theirs not even enough there now for premium model. What would be pro, take out the ramps and the one drop target?

#120 65 days ago

They had so many better options for a new pinball machine. Plus, if the the LE's seriously selling for $12,500...well, that's just pathetic.

#121 65 days ago

I'm thinking the orbits look like they drop down?

Metal tongues on each side.
Perhaps not as bad as I was first thinking?

#122 64 days ago

Am I mistaken, or does the playfield have no pop bumpers?

#123 64 days ago

Couldn't help myself... lol

#124 64 days ago

Count me double-d disappointed in Elvira artwork - it should have been ultra risqué and then put 2 pairs of blackout glasses in goody bag, for anyone offended.

Also over 2-flipper fan layouts, music themes, superheroes and pinball machines costing over $10k.

Same ole Stern. Pass.

Same old nonsense remark. I'll pass.

#126 64 days ago
Quoted from Vongoosewink:

More than enough room in back right area I'm sure they are there.

#127 64 days ago
Quoted from Pinchild:

Thats what im thinking as well. Are real pics coming this week?

#128 64 days ago
Quoted from Skyemont:

I believe so.

I'm wondering if my orbit theory is solid?
Ramps look more than high enough.
So up middle ramp and out left/right just above orbit.

Definitely more than meets the eye. No Transformers pun intended.

If there is a ton of modes I might be down

My 13 year just pointed out "Dad Hobbit is open huge in the middle of playfield and you really enjoy that machine "

Yep he's correct

#129 64 days ago
Quoted from Vongoosewink:

If you look to the right of the right gargoyle by the house you will see a large standup target that is for the pops as I think it may be the only way it could be hit

#130 64 days ago

Gary insists on the standard pops and the Italian bottom on every game. I think a "no pops" game could be a nice change of pace. Would also give designers 3 coils to work with in other areas/features.

I'm guessing 8k premiums, 10k le's and 13k super le's or close

I've never heard this. What's an "Italian bottom?"

#134 64 days ago
Quoted from ataritoday:

What needs to be in the machine ?

Large skeleton covered ramp!!

#135 64 days ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

Stupid term for a standard bottom sling/outlane configuration

#136 64 days ago
Quoted from TheLaw:

Oh, other than Orbiter 1, I can't think of a pinball machine without this.

#137 64 days ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

There are lots of exceptions out there especially in EMs, Gottlieb and Bally SS games, even JJPOTC is different.

#138 64 days ago

Is there some confirmation this will be a Super LE tiered release? I don't see a KaPow logo on the leaked photos.

#139 64 days ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

I've never heard this. What's an "Italian bottom?"

I searched images for it on DuckDuckGo, Safe Surf off, and got images that I think don't relate to pinball

Seriously though: TheLaw answered it well.

#140 64 days ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

I've never heard this. What's an "Italian bottom?"

Italian bottom is the standard inlane/outlane with 2 flipper at the bottom in the standard configuration (as we know it today). Nordman deviated with WOF and I really enjoyed it, but you don't see anyone taking chances like that any longer. Mr. Stern doesn't want "different" in his games.

#141 64 days ago
Quoted from javagrind888:

Space Station is the last example I can think of.

#142 64 days ago
Quoted from Multiball33:

If this is true, Stern just passed JJP price points.

#143 64 days ago
Quoted from Swainer80:

Space Station is the last example I can think of.

Wheel Of Fortune is the most recent game to deviate from it.

Quoted from jawjaw:

Yup, typical 7 shot fan layout that's been done over and over......, invent something new.

#146 64 days ago
Quoted from Dayhuff:

I usually respect and value your opinion on all things pinball. But I like the haunted mansion and deadhead family crypt and gargoyle leapers and other elements on this playfield, and to keep them all but shuffle their locations around just to avoid ending up with a fan layout could ruin the game's flow (or worse). And we don't even know yet if there are special functions (lift ramps or subways) incorporated in this layout. And the location of the VUK makes me think maybe we will see something new.

And if this game's fan layout ends up being as loved as AFM's fan layout I'd sure be okay with that.

#147 64 days ago

I'm betting this game has a lot of surprises we can't see with a still image, Lyman on code, and a huge beautiful sculpt. That being said, I still hate seeing a huge empty space in the middle of a playfield. Needs MM style trolls to pop up or something to fill the space.

#148 64 days ago
Quoted from treborlicec:

I assume you mean the most recent Stern game that deviates from it because JJPOTC would be the most recent game in general.

#149 64 days ago
Quoted from bobukcat:

Oh yeah. I forgot about that. A subtle deviation, but a good one. If I ever do a custom game, it'll have something unique down there.

Sofia Loren has an Italian Bottom.
