    Here is an idea. So many bands deserve a pinball machine. So maybe someone should make a 'generic' band machine and then license it for different bands. Same play field layout. But different artwork and music to fit said band. Of course they would have to license with each band but would lower production costs by making the same machine with different band themes. I for one would put out a bunch of $$$ for a RUSH pinball.

    Not much. If you did it on the production line. Same blank play field just different art and ROMS for sound and display. I guess to me it would depend on how good the lay out is on the original play field. It if was a good game it would work, if it is a poor playing game then not so much. As long as the game plays well it would not be a 'half assed aapproach'. But I agree that is a big if, see the Stern NFL games. Specifically if they did a 'generic' machine and had RUSH artwork and RUSH music, I would not care if the same layout also did Johnny Cash, etc.

    Maybe you are right, just a thought. I hate Bally Kiss and I love classic Bally's, so not sure that is a good example. Game just plays horrible. Not a big fan of AC/DC or Metallica (the pinball machines- like the bands). For sure I would love a specific pinball for the band I love but there is really no chance that a RUSH pinball would appeal to the masses. I dont think it would be that big a deal to change the artwork or sound Roms but the licensing might be an issue.

    Where is my RUSH pin. I cant as a rule afford NIB pins. But someone makes a RUSH pin, I am all in. RUSH come on someone make it happen.

    For LZ fans. Check out the CPR project. Worth a look. I still want a RUSH pin, quiet a few requests in this post but, well not sure it will happen. But if it does I am in for one, I will scrape up the scratch.
