    What are all the games that almost made it to production, but we’re scrapped at some point?

    Great Toppic!
    But sorry - there would be at least 4 questions that I'd like to ask him... please excuse me.

    1 - Why didn't PENTOGRAM get into production (1979)
    2 - " was COSMIC PRINCESS only produced in Australia (1979)
    3 - is it true what was rumoured back then that the TRIDENT-Man IS Gary Stern?
    4 - If you could own just 1 of all your machines (classic and recent) - which one would it be?

    Where’s my All Access Stern Insider kit for 2022?

    You know, the one I got auto-charged back in February for?

    You know, the one that have emailed you and called three times about?

    Yes ! Great band but you would have to do it right. Better the Rush but not like Led Zeppelin

    Insider connect.

    Are we ever going to able to connect to other players, and play head to head, just like, you know, online games having been doing for years?

    Quoted from Sarge:

    Can you PLEASE put the power switch back where it belongs?

    The switch is built in to the supply. Saves money and passes UL CE certification.

    Why are you not setup to produce a lot more games in a timely manner (even pre covid etc) as the market is constantly waiting and frustrated it seems?

    #71 1 year ago

    Why are any and all accessories non existent to the normal Joe ? Why are accessories soo difficult to be released with a current game. Especially the Expression Lights for Rush, I feel the Premium buyers were baited and switched!!!! Hard to believe Stern can’t produce Amazing toppers in house. Where is the creative talent in this World?

    They can only make games they have parts for. They are nowhere near full capacity. They are probably only making 50-60 games a day when they have capacity for double that.

    #73 1 year ago

    What is your 5 year roadmap for new releases? When will you start making toppers again?

    #74 1 year ago

    Question for Stern or Gary Stern?

    For Gary-Everyone would probably ask-"What is your favorite pinball machine?" I am sure he has an eye roll for every time he hears that question.

    I am fascinated with the history of Stern and his father starting the company and bringing him up under his wing. I would ask-"What is one lesson your father taught you that you still carry forward today?" -tons of respect for Gary and his father

    For Stern in general- When will you please make me my Mission Impossible machine?

    How much are you going to try to charge operators to stay connected with IC?

    #76 1 year ago
    Quoted from LTG:

    White clothing was a sign of affluence. For people of means leaving the city for vacations. Their trips and vacations typically lasted more than a week or two. Often for the whole summer. Which they typically didn't do after Labor Day.
    Not to mention you could be getting the wrath of Amy Vanderbilt for such a faus pax.
    LTG : )

    You'd love The Gilded Age on HBO... and to a lesser extent Downton Abby. Its like watching moss grow on a butler in real time, but it is still somehow fascinating.

    Yes yes yes One of the main selling points as to why I bought a new pin. Please let’s release this code.

    One idea I had was an in house creative topper team. They would sell a ton.

    #79 1 year ago

    Can you please help find me a Beatles Topper and also get moving on the RUSH Topper?

    #80 1 year ago

    Toppers seem to be a top question. I am open to help, Stern, for a Topper Team lead?

    Quoted from TroyS:

    creative topper team. They would sell a ton.

    ...if Disney would approve.

    #82 1 year ago

    I’d like to know if they still have plans to make the Mando topper.

    When the R2 topper was delayed for what seemed like forever they at least continued to pump out updates via the monthly memo that it was coming pending Disney approval.

    Feels like they abandoned it and the fact the there hasn’t been a single Rush accessory isn’t promising.

    But hey they are now selling beer glasses with a pinball embedded in it.

    Are you sorry that you lost Steve Ritchie to a competitor that might now teach them how to create flow on a pinball machine?

    Will you ever make a BTTF remake so crujones4life can have some peace?

    Would love for that to come out.

    Quoted from TroyS:

    I have the same question, been waiting for this one.

    And his answer would be "He already Has" I toured the Stern factory when JP was next to be on the line. It's code name was, (you guessed it) JAWS. Gary is very careful (when you talk with him) about what he says. I a l m o s t got him to reveal the next title the day I met him on the tour. "Gary what's next?" " oh well.... another pinball machine..." Dang it! almost...

    Yeah it’s always good to use the same canned response. They do a good job keeping it under wraps.

    Why do you offer accessories like toppers and armor, if you can't meet the demand?

    #89 1 year ago
    Quoted from fisherdaman:

    Good solid question right there. I would actual like to hear the real honest answer and what business struggles are there. Because it does seem like you could make large orders of those or produce them in house.

    WHY?

    My question for them today is, Godzilla Topper before Christmas?
