    Quoted from NoQuarters:

    That would be interesting - perhaps all revamped from when Nordman was working on it.
    Sure hope there is normal Pro, Premium and LE configurations.
    Put me in for a Pro if so !

    I hope that its mainly Nordman's vision and design. I think you need that continuity for it to be a true trilogy.

    #752 49 days ago

    I'm sure it will good with either or , or combo of those two designers influence. Anxious to see it finally make it to production. October should be good !

    #753 49 days ago

    There is no pro its Premium, LE and SLE. You buy they SLE directly from elvira

    #754 49 days ago
    Quoted from Robertstone0407:

    You buy they SLE directly from elvira

    for stupid money....

    #755 49 days ago

    If no Pro model I am not as likely to be a buyer - then I may indeed just pass. If there is a Pro, then it's a high probability of a definite buy for me.

    Guess we will see when it reaches production. Casandra Petersen does her own licensing so I don't think this title needs an alternate price structure. This game has no real reason it can't be a cornerstone with regular Pro, Premium and LE models with Casandra cutting her own deal with Stern for license. Stern will sell many more units with regular model pricing structure for this game.

    #756 49 days ago

    Elvira has grown on me. I look forward to the release news. I would still just like a scared stiff, though. I'm sure it's gonna rock let's see this thing.

    #757 47 days ago

    I hope that Stern doesn't change the design or vision from what Dennis Nordman intended since his departure from the company. Based on comments Dennis has made previously, he really seems confident of his work with his final Elvira design. His confidence inspires my own, so fingers crossed this makes for the ultimate Elvira trilogy machine!

    I have my stupid idea of what I'd like to see in this game. All over the country there have been countless local horror hosts with all their personalities. Rather than make this about just Elvira, if there was someway to include a tribute to the entire crowd. IOW maybe few cameos from the others even if it's just a callout.

    #759 46 days ago

    I think a reveal around Halloween. So the machines will be here end november/ new year.

    #760 46 days ago

    October can't come soon enough. Hard to believe it's been two years since the game was announced at TPF.

    And 6 years since Dennis Nordman first mentioned this game.

    How does that woman look so good at her age. Damn, she looks 40 in that pic. Surly it isn't recent.

    We saw her last year at a con and didn't realize she's 67. She still looks amazing.

    #763 45 days ago

    67 wow.

    Good for her she sure is aging well. We should all be so lucky.

    Quoted from BagAJellyDonuts:

    I agree...that is a stupid idea. Elvira by herself can carry a pin's theme with no problem.

    Quoted from littlecammi:

    I think if she had guest appearances by the Cryptkeeper, Jason, Freddy, Michael Meyers, and Pinhead would fun in the game.

    i was watching svengoolie last night. it would be pretty cool to host such a show, it occured to me.

    Absolutely not!!! Its an Elvira pin and I doubt any of us who are interested in this game would want it watered down even a little bit.

    #770 41 days ago

    Man I cant wait for some solid info about this pin! Or even some unsubstantiated rumors!
    Lets see some grainy leaked pics! Its supposedly completed for a while someone has to have seen it.

    Eddy has to be working on something. Elvira 3 makes as much sense as any of the other rumors. Hope he is, that could turn out very cool.

    Quoted from Billy16:

    Let's hope not. The original layout was supposed to been done by Dennis Nordman before he left for Deeproot. I am hoping no tweaking was needed to get the game into production. If that is the case, then Eddy should be on his own game, which should be after Elvira.

    I love Elvira and the theme, but after the Black Knight flop, I am beginning to think this theme will flop as well.

    As long as you want a rehashed fan layout it should be awesome.

    Quoted from zr11990:

    Why would you say that? Nordman has done come pretty unusual layouts over the years.

    Quoted from bobukcat:

    Because Stern only allows fan layouts. What pins has DN put out while working for Stern that have shown real creativity?

    #780 40 days ago
    Quoted from zr11990:

    Because Stern only allows fan layouts.

    The laws of physics demand a fan layout with two standard flippers, but Stern has some interesting 3+ flipper layouts. Maiden & JP2 come to mind.

    Quoted from zr11990:

    I thought POTC was pretty cool. His only other Sterns are WOF and Whoa Nellie, which are definitely not cookie-cutter.

    Name 2 Dennis Nordman games that are basically the same layout. And.....go!

    Elvira and the Party Monsters and Indianapolis 500.

    The games he made before Stern are great. The ones he made for Stern are, I’m my opinion, shit and I owned a POTC. I couldn’t get rid of it fast enough

    stern probably cut out a between the proto and finished design. Could have been really good.

    I dont think BK was a flop.

    #786 40 days ago

    From my experience the decision to make the upper playfield a premium feature is a disaster. Brick city posts also play into this. Not a game that brings in route money or home buyers.

    #787 40 days ago

    BTW I know Casandra personally I had her do several appearances for me in the past... if you ever want your backglass signed here is where you go

    There is a tradeshow in LA called Monsterpalooza its every April I think and another in October. She's always there... I've been several times and seen people walking around with Elvira translites.

    They have one coming up in September it doesn't say she's going to be there but she always ends up with a table. http://www.monsterpalooza.com/fall/

    Ya me either. The hardcore fans don’t like the pro without a upper pf, but the game is fun and brutal.

    There are 15 LEs for sale on this site alone...........It was a sales flop for sure.

    Quoted from Who-Dey:

    Why would Black Knight have anything to do with Elvira? Im confused....

    He's talking out of his ass again. He loves popping around Pinside letting everyone know the Black Knight was a flop based on some secret info or convulsed conclusions he's reached.

    Quoted from thedarkknight77:

    Black Knight was not a flop. It may not be a huge seller because of the theme but its definitely not a bad game or a flop. You seem awfully negative toward Stern for a guy that owns so many Stern games. Even if it was a flop who gives a shit? That has nothing to do with Elvira at all.

    This right here.

    OK, getting closer to October and hopefully the countdown to this release!
    Allegedly, Illinois paparazzi were able to get photos of Elvira herself hard at work in the Stern factory assembling the bony beast ramps...

    Also thank you Robert for your amazing Scared Stiff page.
    So awesome.

    http://www.robertwinter.com/pinball/ss/

    I love the detail and all the cool easter egg info.

    I really hope the Stern team can bring cool and fun hidden treasures to Elvira 3.

    Maybe I was not looking properly...... but anyone know the names of all the dancing Boogymen ?
    They were named after designers, team members ?
