Quoted from Magicchiz:
I spoke to Dennis at Expo. He wanted it for TPF 2018. Not gonna happen! He thinks more like 4th qtr 2018. Lyman is scheduled to do the code. and you know where that will lead. Game is done and just waiting on code. 3 new interactive toys he said. I cant wait for It and Alice Cooper from Spooky.
A lot can change from October to March.
Quoted from jfh:
I'm pretty sure that Stern doesn't care. But Stern made and unprecedented statement about letting Lyman work on Batman until it was complete. Walking that back doesn't help them.
Seeing as Lyman always works on the code until he feel it is complete (just on his own time), that statement by Stern is meaningless.
Quoted from jgentry:
Dennis, Greg, and Cassandra announced it at the end of last years TPF talk and even asked someone from stern if it was OK to tell everyone before they did. I forgot who they asked but that seemed pretty much announced to me.
If it's another super LE money grab and it doesn't have Dennis finishing the layout then I'm not really interested. I'll wait like I did on BM66 and see how it shakes out. If it turns out good I can always get a premium a couple of years after the launch. I'm not an Iron Maiden fan at all but it with Keith designing sounds more appealing at the moment.
From what’s been posted here, Dennis fished it some time ago.
Dennis turned in his design for the game. He even attended meetings after he was off the contract.
I'd say it's his baby, minus a few weeks.
Of course they can move forward without him. He even said so in the podcast.
My understanding from everything I've heard is that the layout was done and turned in quite some time ago.
That doesn't mean all the production related work is done (Norman stayed around after his contract was up to help with this), but his layout is.
Quoted from JimB:
They better get the callouts recorded. We might not have any for Aerosmith either the longer they wait. People don't live forever!
I read earlier Casandra told someone she was doing them this summer.
That might have lead to some overly optimistic predictions that Elvira 3 would be out this fall.
Quoted from mnpinball:
Highly doubtful, Tom Kopera The mechanical engineer was in a bad plane crash got severely burned is recuperating and Lyman is still not done with Batman.
I’d say late 2019 if at all.
If at all? It's coming. The work is done...has been for some time. Cassandra has recorded her material.
It's about scheduling and getting Lyman ready, as you mentioned.
Quoted from Bublehead:
Not to troll anyone, but more a joke, Maybe this can get CGC to remake Scared Stiff in order to compete? I’d buy that for a dollar. Heck, might throw $7999 plus shipping in with it if they put an Elvira topper on it boogying like she had a ball joint at the waist. Don’t think Stern would “spring” for that... wait, maybe thats exactly what Stern would do?
Wait for it...
(Put her on a spring?)
CGC would have to not only license the pin from Scientific Games, they also would have to get a license from Cassandra Peterson. Stern most likely has an exclusivity clause with Cassandra for the duration of the license of Elvira 3.
Once that license expires CGC could, in theory, remake Scared Stiff.
Quoted from FalconPunch:
Dennis designed a version of it.
There is absolutely no guarantee that Stern would use that design.
They will be using Dennis's design. That's part of the appeal, along with Lyman's code. That's why I believe this will be a release similar to Batman '66. Premium, LE, SLE.
Quoted from Mudflaps:
I’m not twisting anything. I’m trying to be helpful by correcting false information. An impromptu comment by Dennis and Greg is not an official announcement.
At any rate...[quoted image]
Cassandra announced it again within the last month, and gave out the month of October. This is not off-hand comment from TPF in 2017. By the way, Gomez confirmed it at TPF, 2018.
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.
Quoted from KingHebes:
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.
He's clueless. Released in December? Nope.
Quoted from practicalsteve:
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.
Uh, he wasn't supporting SJW ideology in his post. Go back and read it again.
Quoted from PanzerFreak:
I was considering ordering an LE but then realized this game is $200 more then my Pirates LE which has substantially more in it. Just can't justify the price Stern is asking for the LE. However, a premium may be in my future once I see more gameplay video and ultimately play it.
At least EHOH has Elvira fully involved in the assets, even filming new footage, a first for pinball.
JJP's Pirates doesn't have jack shit for assets.
