    Something like this?[quoted image]

    Yeah sorta. I think that would be too many bands to include most of their best songs but if you only had 2 bands you could still add plenty of each of their greatest hits.

    #52 6 months ago

    Since my pipe dream of buying songs within the pin probably won't happen...here's what I would pick if it has 12 songs.

    Welcome to the Jungle
    Night train
    Out ta get me
    Sweet Child of Mine
    Paradise City
    Mr. Brownstone
    It's So Easy
    My Michelle
    Rocket Queen
    You Could Be Mine
    Get in the Ring
    Coma

    bonus track for wizard mode or something...the end of November Rain

    Im so fakkin in for a JJP GnR pin. I really hope the reveal is in Oct.....cant wait!

    Eric totally killed it with the Pirates layout. Too bad there has been some issues with it...

    I like this list, I'd just replace "get in the ring" with "right next door to hell".

    And pretty dated at this point.
    Rather see a Led Zeppelin pin, there music is timeless and lasting.

    Poorly. That's the point. It wasn't given the proper treatment, just a cheap-feeling, bad art Data East one.

    I'm hoping for a really great Star Wars pin. Or a Rolling Stones pin, which could showcase their greats like Andrew's Blues or Star Star.

    Isn’t Toy Story too similar too Wonka? To me it does and it doesn’t make sense to follow Wonka with Toy story. I’m hoping it’s something no one expects. Not sure if GNR will garner enough interest at the JJP price points.

    I don’t think Wonka and Toy Story are similar other than they are both family friendly themes. Wonka is nostalgic for those parents buying; Toy Story is more relevant to parents who grew up with the original movies and have kids of their own and who not only relate to the movies but the toys themselves. Toy Story offers far more game play options because they can work well even if the story of the game doesn’t follow the storyline of the movies.

    The biggest risk for Toy Story will be lack of IP available to the design team. Woody, Buzz, Jesse, Slinky, Mr. Potato Head, the Aliens and Green Army men are critical. (The idea above of using an LCD as Etch-A-Sketch is perfect).

    Toy Story will be seen as an extension of the movies and if it doesn’t seem integrated because key characters and iconic moments and voices are missing then it will be a miserable flop no matter what incredible things Pat does with the mechanical design. If they can use most/all of the movie assets and have some custom character voices it will probably be JJP’s biggest hit to date. If not, it will be DOA.

    This time Eric needs to stand up and not allow them to take the Guitar out of the game.

    The curse of the Star wars pin, beware.

    I think The Incredibles would make a better pinball experience than Toy Story.

    #65 6 months ago

    If JJP makes a GNR game, my guess is that it will be a boutique style game. If they can say it is co designed by slash, that would generate a lot of hype. Still can’t see it fit in with JJPs family friendly approach.

    #66 6 months ago

    Hopefully Toy Story with custom call outs by Tom Hanks and Tim Arnold.

    Actually John Ratzenbenger would be fine.

    #67 6 months ago

    John Wick ! With the Mustang/Chevelle
    Strobe lights like the night clubs

    #68 6 months ago

    Incredibles...... so much better than Toy Story as it would appeal to kids and adults....without a doubt.

    Why would anyone want call outs by Roseanne Barr's ex-husband?!?

    #70 6 months ago

    My wish would be for another 50s b grade sci fi movie type theme.
    Not to one movie, but use the style and theme to capture it.
    Think attacking of martians, robots, oversized people etc
    Protect the earth!! (Maybe not Australia, kiwi joke)

    Or War of the Worlds.

    My kids would say LEGO or Scooby doo.

    Quoted from vireland:

    The theme doesn't really matter to me long term. A crap theme with a great pin is a great pin, and a crap pin with a great theme is still a crap pin.

    It's a good thing none of the JJP games are crap. Then you can just talk about the theme.

    Quoted from Zavadoza:

    It's a good thing none of the JJP games are crap. Then you can just talk about the theme.

    They're not all great. Hobbit is all flash, very little substance, and Dialed In is still at its core flawed and essentially a boring take on Groundhog Day:The Movie.

    WoZ is certified great, and jjPotC is looking (and playing) like a WoZ-level success. Initial impression of Wonka is that it's Dialed-In rehashed. Right theme this time, but poor implementation and extreme lack of imagination - in a theme ABOUT imagination. I'll reserve final judgement until I've shot it a bunch, though.

    I would have zero interest in a rock band theme like GNR but it may be a good thing if is next because it will give my wallet time to recover from my WONKA CE splurge just like no DI buffered my POTC LE and MBR LE buys. I would still like to get an OKT someday and GNR might give me the time before TS to do that also. Boy, I do have a patient wife but I can't keep pushing it.....

    #82 6 months ago
    Quoted from Hammerhead:

    I just don't get the GnR love, especially since its already been done

    I understand it may not be your thing...everybody likes different music. That's cool.

    It should be pretty easy to get the GnR love though. They were/are one of the biggest bands of all time. Look at the numbers on albums sold. They're videos are iconic. They're reunion and tour the last couple of years has been the #1 grossing tour for most of that period. Not many bands sell out stadiums.

    They have millions and millions of fans. Very few bands reach that iconic level. That's why you have the GnR love.

    For example I talked to a guy that owns about 80 pins that lives near me. He's never on Pinside. He was pumped to hear about the rumor. He said they were his second favorite band of all time and that he would be a CE order day #1. They're my favorite band period, and I'll likely get a CE...I'll get an LE in the least.

    Again, their music may not be your thing, but it shouldn't be difficult to comprehend why others would be excited about it.

    in my opinion, jjp should finally stop building family friendly soft-flushed pins. in all lokations here no one stands at a jjp pin for a long time, in turnaments these are also not taken in purely. stern takes out one mega pin after another, the people love action with appropriate sound and callouts.
    the only pin of jjp that is playable would be DI and here i think the sound and callouts could be better as well. everything is too soft
    I really hope the jjp gets the curve, also you should think about the entry-level prices. There is no chance against the Stern Pros

    Does anyone have any actual evidence that gnr is next? To me, it doesn't match their market approach at all. Plus, I'm hoping they learned that a recycled theme (Pirates) may not sell well. Jumping ship on their current fan base and providing a pin based on a band that is far more love hate than bands like acdc or zeppelin is pretty risky. I hope it's not the case as they are going to find out quick that you gnr guys are far less in number than what their other theme ideas would draw.

    It's coming. It's next. And Eric is supposed to be doing it, which after jjPotC's GOAT-contender status is tremendously exciting.

    GnR's last tour was over 500 million bucks. Half a BILLION dollars. Number one tour that year and I think #2 ever. They're plenty popular, and their next tour starts at the end of this year...right as their classic band-themed pin is coming out. If Jack can stick the landing with the tour start, he'll have 18 months of non-stop marketing for it.

    Doing two saccarine themes in a row (Wonka and Toy Story) would be a bad idea. Plus this will give Pat some time to rethink and inject some of the imagination almost completely missing missing in Wonka into Toy Story's mechs.

    Evidence that it is next? If it is true, we'll see if you're prediction translates into sales. I don't think it will. Sales will be as low as Pirates. And your assessment of Wonka aligns with the early detractors if DI. Same old, same old.

    We ponied up for a DI on day one, so failure on that assessment. Sold it six months after we got it because it wasn't a keeper, but that's another story.

    Pirates sales are fine so far, but artificially low only because as people finally get exposed to it and realize it's a top 3 pin and maybe the GOAT, Jack stops selling them for WonkaVoltaire. Same historical mistake.

    Hit me up in January and we can see where this shakes out. People dogged me for saying an AC/DC Luci vault was coming well in advance of when it did since Stern said it was impossible, and, whoops! they were really working on it as I had heard. GnR is coming, and as long as JJP doesn't Wonka it (which I doubt since Eric is handling the design and his debut effort is stellar), the pin will sell.

    Never said it was impossible. I asked for evidence, and it appears that there is only speculation. As for Pirates, I struggle to see Jack foregoing sales because of a new title. From what I've seen, heard and read, people are not interested in an old, worn-thin license. Stock with distros is revealing. I think the game is good, but I agree with most about the theme. I'd never spend that kind of money for it. GnR might be slightly better, but I'd wager Wonka and toy story will destroy it in sales. DI will probably do better. All of these themes are more neutral. As with all new pins, time will tell.
