    He alludes to it around 3:03 and then is quite a bit more direct at 4:06 on the nose.

    I think he was joking.

    I certainly hope so.

    This is the same way Joe announced the Beatles game. You have to look at Gary's smirk at the end.

    You may want a bit more "speculation" in the title and a lot less "certainty".

    Not a theme I particularly care about, but my wife would probably make me buy it.

    My thoughts exactly. Just like Jody wearing a Jaws hat during the Heavy Metal gameplay stream.

    I knew a fake brake was coming to slow down the competition roll!

    #12 2 days ago

    Nope not. Pinball needs more current adult themes. Not going back years to kid movie themes.

    #13 2 days ago

    I'd be super interested in a Harry Potter game since I really loved those books as a kid. My wife would probably make me get an LE regardless of how good or bad it was.

    #14 2 days ago

    Harry Potter got my youngest son reading for fun and he still does!

    #15 2 days ago

    Hmm. I definitely didn't see this coming. If it is real, it could be cool. It would also likely be expensive.

    #16 2 days ago

    Kapow just means plus +$5000? Right?
    If this is truly the case its a shame.
    Would much rather had this been a JJP title.

    #17 2 days ago

    I hope this is real, because i have no more money and i could do with a theme that i couldn't care less about...

    #18 2 days ago

    Harry Potter doesn’t scream high action fun. And that’s how I like my Sterns.

    Agreed that this title belongs squarely in the JJP camp. But kinda excited to see the backlash if true!

    #19 2 days ago

    So he says it in the context of Batman 66 or Beatles, so is he alluding to limited number reskin of an old playfield design with modifications sold at a premium price?

    Apologies if that is what a 'Kapow game' is. I could easily convince my wife to get a Harry Potter Pro to expand past our 3 machine limit, but if its gonna be like 66 or Beatles there's no chance.

    Probably original like Elvira. Still not convinced this is actually happening.

    Lottsa dudes blaming the wife for this purchase, seems suspect!

    Quoted from Roostking:

    The nostalgia I have from getting that first book at 8 years old would definitely fuel me purchasing it, and my wife would most certainly encourage getting a Harry Potter game since she's in love with the movies.

    Which game will be next, Harry Potter or Led Zeppelin?

    #24 1 day ago

    Led Zeppelin is actually happening, so that

    I thought Bond was going to be the next Kapow.

    Now that the shine is off of JK Rowling’s apple maybe she feels a little different about the evils of pinball, lol.

    I hope it’s true so the recent titles released I’m actually interested in begin to hit the marketplace.

    I’m ready and hopefully they announce soon, if not might need to buy GNR.

    Nothing leaked from SR on last nights virtual expo show with him?

    I’d wager around the first two weeks of November based on Sterns historic release dates

    #32 1 day ago

    I'd love a Harry Potter Pin, but honestly I think this is about the worst timing for a launch they could have. Aren't they pretty backed up on the line already? I'd wait until I was caught up before releasing something like this... and wait until their customer refilled their war chests.

    My money is on James Bond from Kapow.

    Now I know how you older gentlemen feel when stern makes another rock pin. I would have to buy this just for the theme alone. I'm really enjoying that stern is making themes more relevant to me (tmnt, avengers, Jurassic Park, Harry Potter if it happens)

    Interesting, had not heard about Bond film.

    It's Kapow Killer Klowns From Outer Space... perfect time for Halloween!

    Quoted from chad:

    Pretty sure he mentioned Bond way back when during one of the podcasts for Beatles.

    I believe it was mentioned as a dream theme. I’m just speculating and it seems like an expensive license to be done properly covering all eras of Bond and Kapow is the person to do such a thing.

    Additionally wasn’t Kapow involved in doing the Bond slot machine?

    #39 1 day ago

    I’d rather have no game be made than to watch Stern mutilate the Harry Potter license.

    What is happening here? It makes me so sad.

    Only jjp would do HP justice. A jjp HP would be an instant buy. Wish jjp would also get Star Wars too.

    What?
    SW's is an amazing game. What a shame so many of u need plastic toys and over done lighting to make a game seem great. I agree with HP and JJP cause, wee u know?

    Agree 100%, Stern did a nice job on SW and theme integration is spot on.

    If JJP couldn’t get music and video content for Pirates they likely wouldn’t be able to for SW either.
    Star Wars without these would be an epic fail regardless of what else they put in it.

    I actually really like Star Wars and still consider getting one. My problem with it was it’s basically just relying on the video and sound. There’s no reason magnets shouldn’t have been used like the force. The story is all over the place, and the only toy in the game(hyper loop) is so inconsistent. I like the game, but it was a huge disappointment. The new comic art certainly helped it, but at the asking price, it feels like you’re paying more for movie assets rather than a pinball experience.

    If stern was able to get the assets, jjp could too. The difference is sterns bom hindered the rest of the game on the play field. A jjp SW would look and feel completely different.

    Harry Kapow? Never heard of it... But it sounds like a good rogue cop movie.

    #48 1 day ago

    Please no harry potter. Stranger things by bad enuff

    #49 1 day ago

    Talk about Stern butchering Harry Pooter? Well most def if its another reskin.

    How would JJP do it with no assets like POTC? I don't think so.

    The GNR experience with Slash and ALL of the band assets is never happening again.

    I may disagree here, I’m sure a large part of the budget was chewed up with licensing, same can be said for Beatles. They claim most expensive license ever.
    If JJP were to do a Star Wars , Potc, Hobbit or insert any other mega franchise and go all out on video, music, actors, toys and bells and whistles the games would be even more expensive than current JJP games.
