Quoted from RA77:

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

Yea right....

#802 1 year ago

I question if this will be announced in time for Halloween.
JP2 just hit the line and I doubt Stern wants to slow down those sales.

#803 1 year ago

Thanks! Yeah, Dennis was fun to speak with. I was going to go for Part 2, but all my questions would be about E3 and Deeproot and he probably can't say anything for publication.

#804 1 year ago

spfxted, since you started the #SS club and robertwinter and you are so connected to the Elvira projects ... I'm wondering if you both can arrange something special for all of us (well, the interested people) "Elvira pinball fans".

Some kind of exclusive event with the Elvira club, Stern, Dennis, Greg, Cassandra, etc that can happen around the release...

I'm sure the design team (and Stern) would be happy to have a bunch of fans like us during the launch to help spread the excitement. I'll help you organize if you think it's possible. Can't hurt to reach out to Greg or Dennis...

Elvira will also be at the Chiller Theatre Convention Oct 25-26 in Jersey!

That's great news, Ted!! I've been waiting for her to come back into the area. I hear she doesn't dress as Elvira for East coast shows anymore. Is that true?

Yes I have heard the same, that she doesn't go in character. If you poke around for pictures of events they seem to corroborate that story.

Sales are already slowing.

It will be earlier.
It’s also not a ‘real’ Stern game but a Kapow game. These are no Stern cornerstone games.

I will speak to her at the show and hopefully get some info.
Not sure about the costume thing. The last time she was in costume, but I also heard she wants to stop that....

Quoted from pascal-pinball:

Are you certain this is the case? I'm thinking that since the game was designed by Dennis Nordman & the art is by Greg Freres it would be a Whizbang Pinball production manufactured through Stern much like WNBJM. Case in point - (from Pinball News) Following up on the successful collaboration that brought Whoa Nellie Big Juicy Melons to the market, the new project will present a modern pinball game created in the fun, campy style for which the Whizbang team is known. (from Stern - April 2016) “We are thrilled to be doing a brand new game with Dennis and Greg. The Whizbang team brings a unique energy and feel to their games that resonates with pinball players around the world,” said Gary Stern, CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.

If not this, then they maybe they have sold their rights to produce the game directly to Stern? I just don't think Kapow plays a role in this title, but I don't know for certain nor do I have any insider information.

#811 1 year ago

I am really, really hoping there will be a pro priced model. Not tying to spend batman money.

Dang out of all those hundreds of great pictures of you with all the celebrities this one makes me the most envious.

#813 1 year ago
Quoted from Multiballmaniac1:

This game earns like a mother fucka, also casuals and hardcore players dig it so I doubt sales suck. To me it is a cornerstone title.

#814 1 year ago
Quoted from Chalkey:

If there is a pro (i'm hearing there will be) then i'm truly considering one. I'm gradually putting newer games out and doing my best to keep my area kinda fresh.

#815 1 year ago
Quoted from HighProtein:

If there is a pro (i'm hearing there will be) then i'm truly considering one. I'm gradually putting newer games out and doing my best to keep my area kinda fresh.

Where are you hearing that? Dennis Nordman has said he designed only one model for it. Lyman Sheets has said his next game will not be a cornerstone release (Pro, Premium, LE), and he's highly rumored to be coding it. Very plausible, since he hasn't done a game since Batman '66.

Everything points to this be a special release, perhaps in the same mold as Batman '66 with Premium, LE, and SLE.

#816 1 year ago

Sorry whizbang, no kapow.
But not a stern cornerstone game

#817 1 year ago

I sure hope the game isn’t a myth. I missed out on a Scared Stiff recently and have since been holding off on a new game in hopes that Elvira 3 comes out.

#818 1 year ago

Perhaps the design of this game and layout is not conducive to the standard Pro and Premium game types. Maybe they've decided it will be one version, or two with an LE that has non gameplay changing enhancements. Who knows, it's all speculation at this point. One thing is certain if the design that Dennis did for Stern remains unchanged or at best, worthy enhancements made, we should be happy. Dennis designs great fun games and I can't wait to see what he's designed for Deeproot Pinball.

#819 1 year ago

Casandra Petersen cuts her own licensing deals on all her stuff. Shouldn't be a middle man in the equation.

Think there is hope for a cornerstone game. Guess we will see when it's released. It's been on the back burner a long time. The game could have been revamped. Nordman at Deeproot could be one of the reasons this has been delayed so long. It could have been redesigned. It's been a year since it was supposed to be released. Speculation.

You mean something like this?
Schermafbeelding 2019-09-12 om 15.57.48 (resized).png
In the recent Pinball Magazine & Pinball News podcast it was already hinted that the Stern party was moved from Saturday to Friday to accommodate a special guest. Now that it's on Elvira's website, I guess the cat is out of the bag.

#821 1 year ago

October 18th can’t come soon enough!

#822 1 year ago

Oh yeah this looks promising!!

#823 1 year ago

She no longer makes convention/signing appearances in costume.

Not a myth. It's real!

#824 1 year ago

I talked to my distributor the other day and he mentioned that he hears elvira 3 will be sterns next major release. I mentioned i heard it might be a release like the beatles and he made it sound like it will be their next major typical 3 tiered title released in either dec or jan. But again he doesn't know for sure. Let the rumor mill rollll i know im hoping it is a major release.

Outdoing SS is a tall order

I dont think he.means that sales are slowing due to the Elvira theme, i think he probably means sales are.slowimg because of all the pooling and chipping playfields and i believe that he is right. Elvira 3 will earn great on route i think but there are tons of people that wont buy a NIB game until they get this playfield thing fixed.

#827 1 year ago

One playfield design. Another Lyman coded masterpiece. It’s had two years to cook so hopefully it’s done and ready to rock.

Similar model/tier to Bat66.
Super LE available through Elvira only.

#828 1 year ago

I'm hoping the call outs will be fun with an "adult" option. After all, it's Elvira!

#829 1 year ago

Has Stern’s “full moon” on facebook something to do with the Elvira 3 release?

NOPE

Kinda makes you wonder. With all of the sexual innuendo's with Elvira and her two previous titles to which do not offend me (I love boobies )
...what social justice warriors will be offended by this new game in 2019 and try to speak out for change and Elvira to wear a Burka LOL .
Christopher Franchi got grief over comic book artwork created for a Pinball Show and most recently American Pinball had
to change the backglass on Oktoberfest because of a monkey with a hand up a girls skirt (a cartoon, fictitious none the less).

Just my .02
Such a bummer so many people are so easily offend these days

Big difference as this is a brand and character created by her, not some guys idea of "humor" at the expensive of a women. She talks empowerment and I have seen her post about female social issues. This is a great example of when context is key. She has an incredibly large female fan base as well. I doubt you will hear as much about people being offended.

Your SJW comment says loads about you though.

My very secret sources tell me that it will be very politically incorrect.

Politically incorrect callouts include:
America deserved 9-11
I'll respect the troops when they show up at my house to suck my dick
and
40% of police officers have been reported for beating their spouses

Finally someone is willing to stand up to those politically correct types

#840 1 year ago

A very close source told me that this game is officially being revealed on Monday. *fingers crossed* It sounds awesome!

#841 1 year ago

Too bad about the pricing structure - if it is priced like Batman66 levels then I am out on Elvira.

If it had a Pro priced model I'd be in for sure. Too bad, I was looking forward to this for a long time.
