I love the Haggis logo!

I will be shocked if their game #2 is a Universal Studios production themed game.
Unless they transition to parody teasing-

Like the fish on the wall with huge teeth in a previous teaser

Maybe its a funny parody.

My dad is addicted to these movies.

Just release a cool jaws-type pin and enable the end users to manipulate the video and audio-assets

#11 5 months ago

Sweet has anyone in the states gotten a Haggis pin yet?

#12 5 months ago

I’d rather it be Sharknado than Jaws.

I haven't played their first game yet. However, if you are saying "Just when you thought it was safe to go back in the water" in your Coming Soon video, it damn well has to be Jaws, or I'll never take you seriously again. If I'm considering a pinball machine, and a company says that to me, I'd put the one I was going to buy on hold to see Jaws from you. I know how people have bantered about this theme over the years, but I still see that as a good theme. A couple of years ago they played Jaws at the Drive-In near me, and we watched it from the back of my truck there.

So whoever put that video together needs to deliver Jaws. They just set my expectation on Jaws. Not Sharknado, not a joke, Jaws. Here's to swimmin' with bow legged women.

Piranha 3DD ?

I thought Stern had / has the JAWS license. I do know that’s a direct quote from the trailers when JAWS came out...Could it be Piranha ?! I want JAWS regardless hope it’s done properly who ever makes it.

#20 5 months ago
Quoted from oldskool1969:

Piranha 3DD ?
[quoted image]

Whoa beat me by 36 seconds but yeah it’s got piranha vibe. I actually love those movies... who knows perhaps Christopher Llyod will get two pins this year Piranha 3DD and Back To The Future!

#21 5 months ago

Maybe , watching very closely while waiting for my CELTS

The Meg would be a cheaper license that Jaws

#23 5 months ago

Always loved this film as a Jaws ripoff, but my bet is on Loch Ness Monster.

Maybe its Jaws 4: the revenge

#25 5 months ago

There’s NO WAY Haggis has the Jaws license. It could be a generic shark theme or one of the B movies others have mentioned in this thread, but Jaws is too big of a license for an upstart like Haggis to get. In order for it to be profitable they’d have to sell thousands of them and Haggis doesn’t have that capability or track record. I think the only manufacturers capable of doing Jaws would be Stern or JJP.

#26 5 months ago

I wouldn't mind Deep Blue Sea either

I don't think it's impossible for Haggis to get the Jaws license and for them to work out a reasonable price for it. Zen Pinball did a Jaws game after all. The issue with the license has always sounded more like you just get the name of the movie and the shark. The music and various actor licenses cost a lot more, if some are even gettable. At least that's the impression I've gotten from smarter people about this particular license.

I'm sorta conflicted because I really want a Jaws machine, but I also know that it won't be the game I've been thinking about for years. Sinking Orca upper-playfield mech, a shark head that pops out and eats the ball, swimmer leg drop targets to eat, the Austin Powers/Walking Dead crossbow mech to harpoon the shark, etc... I've always liked the idea of having two game modes, one where you're trying to stop the shark and another where you're the shark causing chaos.

I'll be happy either way though. Generic shark game could be a great original theme IMHO.

It's not possible for Haggis to get any license. They've sold 18 pinball machines.

Settle down people.

As an aside, isn't it funny the staying power that advertising for bad sequels to memorable movies have had over the decades?

Both "just when you though it was safe" (Jaws 2) and "They're Back" (Poultergeist 2) have survived in the pop culture consciousness for 40 years, while the terrible movies are forgotten.

More than Dutch when they licensed TBL from Universal

Pretty sure they mostly care about the check cashing. There's all sorts of Jaws merchandising crap. It was one of the first major movies to get heavily into licensing random junk.

Dutch had an industry veteran securing the Licensing for them. Licensing games isn't as easy as just snapping your fingers and cutting a check.

You need to convince them you know what you are doing and won't embarrass the brand. Some Australians nobody's ever heard of swinging hammers around...I just don't know man.

So...Haggis could pay Roger Sharpe to help...

It's not a Herculean task to go hire a consultant to get it done. It's just a question of having the capital to pay for it.

Do you think they have the capital to pay for it?

They had the capital to start a whole factory.

I think it would be hard to argue that Jaws wouldn't sell like hotcakes and be a killer ROI. That is assuming they can keep up with the demand, but that's a good problem to have.

You mean like how Heighway got Alien?

Or Dutch got TBL?

Quoted from Cheeks:

The same way everyone else gets a license. Money.

Judging by posts in their facebook / the Haggis thread, this is looking more like a FishTales knock off than Jaws.

Absolutely agree. I don’t think they have Jaws, but to use the tag line is a total troll move to generate clicks and buzz.

Really? You guys can’t be serious. Maybe you forgot the emoji?

#39 5 months ago

If it isn't Jaws but is some other Fishing based game then I'd say it's been pretty good marketing knowing the Jaws hint would get us talking.

How did you arrive at this number 18 CrazyLevi? when I ordered, I was #53
Maybe I am wrong, I have a feeling you are though as there was ALOT of interest in Europe for this title.
Never under estimate an Aussie!
HOMEPIN doesn't count as he is an expat and is a disgrace re pinball machines.

That’s a good point! I’ll start a thread with unfounded rumors combined with famous movie tag lines. That would be so funny! So many thumbs up for me!

“You’ll believe a man can fly” coming soon from Jersey Jack. Ha, fooled ya, it’s Chronicle The Pinball.

Weird.

Fathom 2.0?!?

Mermaid trapped...dive again!

That’s what I thought too. Modern Fathom game

Bringing back the reverse outlanes?

For some reason I’m getting a
Friday the 13th vibe. Woodsy, calm water like a lake.

Welp, that was until I heard the “this ocean is mine quote”

#46 5 months ago

"Back in the water" quote was JAWS 2....they are signifying a remake.

Jaws 2 is bad but it's still the best Jaws sequel by a large margin. It's got some memorable moments.

My favorite one is probably when Jaws eats the helicopter.

I would be really surprised if he would sell 100 Celts game though.
There are so many better options available...

While 18 is low, I wouldn’t be all that surprised either if that’s all.

If a game like RAZA couldn’t sell 150 pieces with all the drama and attention to it, Celts certainly won’t do better and I assume it to have way under 100 orders.

Didn’t they just ship their first game a few days/weeks ago?
Would be pretty soon to release another machine if they would still need to build a lot of Celts?

Not Jaws, more likely Nessie.

#50 5 months ago

Ironically my current project after Mad Max is my retheme of Fish Tales into Jaws! About half done now, can't wait to get it flipping. Been working on it for 12 months, hope to have it done by spring.

I was thinking Lochness as a spinoff of Celts ...but now thinking a Fathom spinoff. I know one of the guys in the Haggis shed is a mad Fathom nut.

Looking forward to see it what ever it is!
