    POTC rules, to many, sound bewildering and overly involved. 23 characters! A zillion modes from each movie! I think in large part this is because outside of a couple characters and maybe the first two movies, who even knows, remembers, or cares about POTC movies? They made a lot of money, but I don't get the feeling that POTC 4 has this deeply passionate fanbase who knows all the ins and outs of different scenes or minor characters.

    On the other hand, I think this style rule set would work much better in the context of a beloved, long-running show like Seinfeld. Every episode is a mode, and you have to complete x episodes from each season to get to the mini-wizard. Play as Newman, or the Soup Nazi, or the Low Talker, or Lt. Bookman, each who have different advantages. Every game is a different sequence of modes. Complete all seasons to get to the Master of Your Domain wizard mode. At that point the game takes your picture and digitally puts a puffy shirt on you.

    Michael Richards comedy club rant completely ruined that show for me.

    Don’t know how well Seinfeld would translate to pinball. If done with lots of sound and video clips along with an interesting layout, I think it could work. Definitely need to include a Frogger mini game

    Time to throw in the usual "I'd rather have a George Carlin themed pinball machine".

    I had heard that Seinfeld won't do stand up anymore, due to political correctness. Go figure

    I would love a Seinfeld Pinball I always enjoy watching the show.

    You'll never see that

    I don't understand the obsession with having a "themed" pinball machines anyway. All it seems to do is raise the price of the game to cover the use of a movie, band or celebrity.

    Really? Well that blows my high.

    Because people like & identify with them, which leads to easy sales for the companies. It's silly, but that simple.

    I could get into "Marine Biologist Multiball" where you knock pinballs into the ocean.
