I haven't posted on pinside in years. I was fortunate way back when to get the $6500.00 back I sent Andrew for an Alien pin right before Heighway went under. I counted my blessings, shut my mouth, and stepped away.
But this speculation of the revival of the Alien pin has peaked my interest again in pinball, as for as putting a second pin in the back of my theater room.
I have a lovely TWDLE and haven't seen a theme that has interested me since Alien.
The only other themes that would open my pocketbook would be Resident Evil and maybe Jaws. (edit... and The Fifth Element would be a hoot)
And now I wait. A factory supported Alien pin with all the kinks worked out would be something I wouldn't be able to avoid eagerly owning.
If it's going to happen, I sure hope all of the audio work Mr Theil did is preserved.
