You guys have a ton of faith for some reason...

#752 73 days ago

Common decency and a love of the game.......

#753 72 days ago

Also because there are plenty of games out there in pinball-dom that have horrible or even stupid themes but play amazing and are legendary, much sought after games.

#754 72 days ago

There are decent fair-minded rational people out there in amongst the haters who just try to crap on every single thing.

Those people make it all worth it.

#755 72 days ago

I am tingling in anticipation

Quoted from TreyBo69:

Maybe you confuse faith with hope

Even though faith because of Thunderbirds isn't high, I have hope this one will be better. How much better, and will that be enough to make a fun game? I hope so....we'll now more in september.

I saw the manual for the game was uploaded

https://www.homepin.com/kits/TAP_MANUAL_WEB.pdf

Interesting they still don't have a better way to update the code on the board (at least you don't have to mail it back and forth now). I'm curious about their opto rollover sensors. I sure hope they're not like Vacation America where clicking a flash light on/off at it can get it to register switch closures....

Hall effect spinners is a neat idea tho. Also there's a bell in the game?

The bell is in the backbox. Do like that addition. At least the parts section of the manual is pretty good. Destroys the disaster of a manual that Toy Story 4 has, so there's that. Still not expecting anything from this pin, but maybe I'll be surprised...

For those wondering; No, there is not a detailed playfield photo/drawing in the manual.

From Homepin 8/25/22

Hope you are well.

We want to give you an update on the Spinal Tap pinball machine with the latest news that the machine will be launched at Pinfest 2022 on 17th September. We will be displaying 2 machines at the show. For more information about the show, please view;

https://pinfest.com.au/pinfest-2022/

On this day, we plan to show photos/videos of the Spinal Tap Pinball machine as well as production schedules, prices and dates.

Information has changed since earlier estimates, however we should have very clear information during the show, including details about final features and the pinball machine Topper.

Thanks and we will stay in touch.

Best Regards,
Valentina Josifovski

I think if you like the movie, you're going like the pin?

Quoted from PinMonk:

Yea between 9000-9500 I believe in euro

#773 17 days ago

just a few random spot welds on that left ramp and you would think to run the wires down the back edge of the side stadium light brackets

Looks ok, just dent look too closely
Way better than TB , hope it plays well for the festival and loo forward to more reviews/ videos.
Pricing is um, yeah . But this is all pinball and toys lately

#779 17 days ago

I can't wait to see videos of this in action, really hope someone can get some decent footage

Tap is one of my favourite comedies ever , so much potential for some incredible modes
Love that they got the cocoon chamber on there.

Let's hope these guys are less annoyed about the leaks than stern , at least they can't blame the death of our queen , most Aussies don't give a crap

No leak…this is the release.

#782 17 days ago

What are the chances…..2 inherently Brittish licenses being “launched” in the same week that Britain is in mourning for their iconic figurehead while the rest of the world watches. Could be seen as unfortunate timing. Could also be seen as perfect timing.

Lol.

The Bond thread has lost the plot. It’s stirred not shaken.

Thanks for posting Nepi23. Enjoy the show!

#790 17 days ago

Looks pretty darn decent! I would love to give it a flip.

#791 17 days ago

Not certain… but looked like it just plays the film on the monitor while you play… no correlation to any modes or callouts.
Could be wrong tho.

#792 17 days ago

That backbox mesh isn’t going anywhere!

Looks like the big screen is just showing straight clips, no game info? I guess that’s clever, but there’s a fine line…

This flyer is so blurry

#796 17 days ago

Homepin doesn't have the cachet or track record to ask almost $10K for their sophomore release. They should be looking at the piles of HW/UM's for sale on Pinside, the countless unsold TS4's and the fact TNA 2.0 isn't sold out of it's small run. It's sort of like people don't want to pay $10K+ for a NIB... especially from a company that has TBAG basically as their entire resume.

#797 17 days ago

I like the cabinet artwork, as for the playfield, I've possibly seen worse recently (looking at you Bond).

That foil-wrapped cuke though.....

#798 17 days ago

Incredible. another case of a manufacturer failing to provide a production quality gameplay video before some guy with a cell phone. can't unsee the rattled half ramp shot at the :27 mark.

#799 17 days ago

After 1 month air balls will totally turn all those guitars into pieces. No way they could withstand a single hit.

#800 17 days ago

That Bond thread went south so quick! Even for this site.

Back to Tap: That stongehenge is life sized!
