Kaneda just announced Hot Wheels as the next AP pin. Makes sense with the tease with the keys. He also said they are working on a second unlicensed pin.

It may turn out to be a cool pin but there is a lot of competition coming with some great themes. I think it may be a tough sell.

Quoted from Trekkie1978:

I’ll believe it when I see it.
How many times has he said stuff that was just flat out wrong?

That’s certainly possible...

Quoted from Tuna_Delight:


That’s a bold move. Naming the name not once but thrice!

Quoted from LTG:

Not on their list. Redemption game ?
LTG : )

Hi Lloyd. When you refer to their list are you referring to the trademarks for Sherlock, Poker Run, Robin Hood and Valkyrie? I heard they abandoned those marks, but don’t actually know if that’s true.

Quoted from LTG:

The list of four they posted. No idea if they trademarked them or not. Also I don't know if you can abandon them either. I thought you were stuck with that until it expires ?
LTG : )

There’s a filing process for trademarks. You can abandon the mark before it is actually issued. In other words, there is a difference between just filing for the mark and actually seeing the filing through to get the mark issued to you.

I keep waiting for COZ to chime in. He’s the AP insider correspondent

Going retro....?

That Hot Wheels game actually looks pretty sweet. I will be taking a closer look!

Quoted from TheLaw:

It really isn't, Budget Seawitch.
Now Mexico 86 aint bad

Yeah. I just read that when I looked it up.

#191 5 months ago
Quoted from tp:

Hope my opinion is wrong and we all end up loving it if it comes to market.

I hope everyone ends up loving it. I just think there is a big difference between a fun and innovative pin that people want to play and a fun and innovative pin that people want to buy.

I wasn’t thinking they would do a Cumberbatch version. I kind of assumed it would be a generic Sherlock Holmes.

#294 5 months ago

Despite the sales numbers for Hot Wheels, I think consideration needs to be given how sales of a toy that costs a couple of dollars translates into sales of a machine that costs $7,000. Every parent tosses a Hot Wheel in the cart because the cost is so nominal.

#333 5 months ago

I said something similar earlier in the thread but I just don’t see how Hot Wheels can compete with Stranger Things, TMNT, Rick and Morty, etc. They are all going to come out around the same time. Even if Hot Wheels is a high quality game, it’s really about allocation of dollars and I don’t see dollars allocated to Hot Wheels given the competition.

Quoted from arcademojo:

Was this posted yet? It's a mock up not real but doesn't look bad.[quoted image]

Where is the mock up from? I know it says Franchi, but did he post it somewhere? Sorry if I’m behind.

I read through this thread and others and see so many complaints about AP pins. However, I have to ask how many of those people have actually played or even seen one? For example, I live in Minneapolis which has a very active pinball scene. Numerous locations with many many pins to play. I think there is one Octoberfest in Minnesota on route - not in Minneapolis. I played Houdini and thought it was great! I just wonder if more people had access to them if opinions would change?

#812 82 days ago

I’ll have to check out other pictures as they become available, but it looks really really nice. Much better than expected, but I do wish they would have done away with the odd shaped head. However, AP may see that as a “signature look”.

Quoted from JodyG:

Jesus...getting to be almost like an ambulance chaser.

I actually appreciate Zach’s work ethic. There is a reason that everyone knows about him on these forums and it’s not just the fact that he posts.

Zach - Keep hustling my friend. You are earning whatever you are being given. That’s a good thing.

Quoted from Athlete:

Do you mind listing the new pins you’ve heard of that are getting ready to come out? Thanks

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, Guns N Roses and, at the time I made that post, Stranger Things. The rationale being all three of those are probably more desirable themes than Hot Wheels.

#1113 81 days ago
Quoted from Hazoff:

Man I love pinball but what lame themes. I mean if u love it then Im happy for ya but imagine a world where it was Road Warrior, Blade runner, a new Robocop pin and maybe a Terminator based on the first film. Motorhead instead of GnR. I'm just venting via personal taste.

I’m not saying I love those themes. I’m just saying people will probably deem them to be more desirable than Hot Wheels. In other words, if you were forced to buy one, would you choose Hot Wheels or one of the other three?
