Aside from Deadpool, this would be the only new pin I'd be interested in. With Disney owning the property now I would be doubtful it sees the light of day.

Well, I'm not one to gloat, but looks like iceman44 owes me a nice big bottle of Woodford Reserve.

How are we gonna get this done? NYC liquor prices being what they are it's probably gonna be around 70 bucks.

Ice is an honorable man! (I hope)

iceman44 will pay up, he probably just stayed up til midnight waiting for a production announcement and is still sleeping it off.

You should drink it together.

And don't splash it on Tim.

So Disney said no? Someone to call Disney’s CEO to check?
Huge amount of dollars to make.

I read somewhere that the redesign of Alien and replacement of parts with Bally/Williams brand was a slam dunk. All other matters like licensing were being handled by lawyers as a mere formality. It was alleged that the game was almost ready to ship. All they needed was to find a factory that would lease them space for free. What happened?

Also heard that anyone caught not believing this rumor started by Iceman and perpetuated by Kaneda as gospel would be publicly shamed. Turns out to be 100 percent bullshit from the beginning while maybe 0 percent of the real effort required to make this happen has occurred to date. The only part of the rumor cycle we did not hear were people claiming to have seen it and who could confirm it played great. At least nobody sent in preorder dollars this go round.

One man’s pipe dream is what I called it, only to receive a downvote from Ice for it. Where’s Ice and his apology to the community? Where is CrazyLevi’s booze?

edit - just remembered Vid is missing too. Starting to think Vid may have been part of an Alien encounter gone bad. If Vid is piloting an ufo, what are the chance he stopped to give Ice a lift?

I’m too far away to get a drink but I’m gonna get a beer to think of this over.

Yes i'm paying up with Levi and his bourbon of choice! He deserves it, did a great job with NYC pin champ

Don't fret boys, Alien IS coming SOON

So I may get my booze and drink it too?!

I do hope you guys get what you want. Which is alien. For some reason.

I remain skeptical.

Send me your paypal or venmo and I'll shoot you $100. Throw in a couple of NY pizza slices to go with it.

#661 48 days ago
Quoted from CrazyLevi:

Woodford Reserve.

Nice. I'm not going to pretend I have a vast amount of opinions in this area, but I do really like Woodford Reserve.

#662 48 days ago

Woodford is a pretty decent bourbon, but is it really seventy bucks a bottle in NYC?!? It’s less than half that at the state run ABC stores in Virginia.

Booze is horribly expensive here.

There's a reason I buy a year's worth of stuff at the huge booze outlet next to Pintastic every July.

#664 48 days ago

Happy to report that while he is many things, a Welch, and sober, are not among them.

Thanks for the booze cash Ice!

And thus concludes our business.

Though I fear the business of Shit-talking is just beginning!!!

damn - and round 1 goes to the non believers.

Ice - anything to change at this point or are you sticking with the story?

Gotta respect ice puts his money where his mouth is.

I was just going to say the same. Guy is stand up - respect that.

#668 48 days ago
Quoted from f3honda4me:

So do I!!!!!

Trust me this was not an easy bet, as ice reached out privately beforehand to tell me to shut up and spoke with serious conviction. But I’d talked so much Shit I was backed into a corner.

I’ll say this much, I 100 percent believe that HE 100 percent believes this is happening.

I still don’t see it though.

#669 48 days ago

I have very little in the way of inside knowledge here. But I don’t think it’s that weird or outlandish. A ton of time and money was spent to develop this game. Why wouldn’t they want to try and recoup it?

It’s not a vaporware game, it’s real. Real rules, real shots, real multimedia, real license. People seem to like it!

I honestly have no clue what will happen. All I can say is I have a decent sense for what would be involved. It’s not a pipe dream at the very least.

I feel like I laid out a pretty convincing case back on page 1 why it doesn’t make any sense for anybody interested in making a profit. Impossible no, unlikely and untenable yes.

#671 47 days ago

Remember these are the same people who kept pouring money into a very deep pit for years. It’s not like this would be a change of pace.

I talked to Ice as well and I agree - this guy 100% believes it's coming out. He talks as if he's actually seen it.

I will say that i do believe alien code is being updated as we speak. Heard from a few folks about that possibility. Who knows....I will say alien is my fav game...but you all know this already

That's pricey! It's ~$45 at Hong Kong Airport Duty Free shop.

In Missouri you can catch woodford reserve on sale for $59 for the 1.75 bottle. Also I can find Blanton at the grocery store for $55...timing is everything.

#675 47 days ago
Quoted from TreyBo69:

Yeah but if they wanna go after a cashcow game like IJ they need to accommodate a widebody someday
But I say this without having seen the CGC facilities. Some manufactures lines seem more easily accommodating than others.

I doubt they could make enough money after the huge licensing fee a Disney would charge to remake IJ. It was Lucasfilms back when IJ was made. Disney is a different animal and getting all the actors permission along with the necessary music is a long shot at best.

Unlikely Disney would need to get the actor's permission, except MAYBE Harrison Ford. Talent deals prior to the 21st century were a lot different and often included likeness for promotion, merchandising, etc.

I would still wager IJ is never remade.

#678 47 days ago

I'm a buyer of Alien. Bring it on!

#679 47 days ago

So who is up for another bet with ice? 1 bottle/75 day non delivery.

This thread is still going?? Wow. I keep going back to Whole Foods to find that pudgy guy wearing the Weyland Yutani Shirt, but he disappeared. Just like this thread should ...

I think I would be in as well. None of the other speculated future remakes (CCR, BBBR, TOMR, TOTANR, etc) interest me at all.

Ok well when or if they do announce anything, can someone just PM me. I have other more important threads to read and keep up with . We only live once, I dont want to waste my time here.
Thanks

Sounds like you need a drink! Look up Levi, I hear he just came into a little something in that regard.

If Alien is going to be made by Chicago Gaming would it be next or after Cactus Canyon?

#690 12 days ago

Hoping it’s sooner rather than later. Looks like iceman44’s predictions (statements about TBL and Alien) are happening - better late than never!

LOL. Yep, surprised TBL made it out first to be honest.

Alien and much more are coming!

It would be never.

LTG : )

#693 12 days ago

If Alien never sees the light of day (I still have hope that it will), then I’d love a Masters Of The Universe CGC made pin. That would be glorious. Anyway, back to the topic. Alien is too big of a license to be ignored or at least resuscitated.

#694 12 days ago

I haven't heard an official peep out of any such 'deal' yet. It's possible I've been out of the loop since my life has been a complete fucking shambles for a number of months, but that's my unpaid Alien design work we're talking about here.

#695 12 days ago

Did I miss something? I saw TBL was going to sell 40 more units but was Alien officially announced to be remade?

#696 12 days ago

Really doubt this will happen, but the way crazy things keep happening in this hobby, you just never do know!!

#697 12 days ago

Weren’t / aren’t alien specific parts showing up on Pinball Life? I think I remember reading that somewhere.

If so, would make sense.

#698 12 days ago

So, does this mean there will finally be a Queen pin???

Anyone?

Yes most of them are gone. I think CGC making Cabbage Patch Kids next. Or maybe sour patch kids. Garbage pal kids? Some sort of kids.
