    Pics? A fourth JPop game has been announced?

    #3 7 years ago

    Post some pics please and then we can discus it.

    It was posted in another thread that this is a foam core mockup meant to entice KISS into giving JPop the license to produce them. I'm not really sure why he would be doing that...

    #6 7 years ago

    *pure speculation on me

    I'm guessing he made this game to show off publicly as RAZA and MG are secret builds.

    From the pictures it has his LCD, lighting trellis and art while it seems lacking new toys.

    I'm not a kiss fan but the game does look visually pleasing.

    I wonder how far out MG and RAZA are?

    #7 7 years ago

    He said its a project he was going to do later with a friend who won't be with us for long. They did it at Christmas time so the friend was able to participate in it. He has it here to show his cabinet, LCD screen and some lighting features. Very impressive looking.

    I wish I knew.

    #10 7 years ago

    Wow looks cool! I am guessing the playfield isn't finished yet (ramps ect)


    #11 7 years ago

    Oh yeah, how great does that look! RAZA artwork much better though……..

    #12 7 years ago

    Looks great! love the artwork

    #13 7 years ago

    Not a Kiss fan at all, but this does look impressive. Playfield layout and the placing of the monitor makes me wonder wether there is room for any ramps at all. I also don't see any song or mode reeferences, which gives me the impression that this is sort of an early 80s styled layout. Since it's just a mockup (an impressive looking mockup) I guess a lot may change. If John gets a green light on the license he may sell more than he can manufacture.

    #14 7 years ago

    That actually looks kind of bad-ass. Although with how the playfield is currently designed, I wonder how much actual "game" will be there. Still, very nice artwork.. I'm liking it.

    #15 7 years ago

    Yes there are ramps....he is working on them at his booth today. He has a load of RAZA artwork at his booth also......unfreakinbelievable art!

    #16 7 years ago

    I can't believe JPOP didn't put in a giant Gene Simmons tongue mech that pops up from under the playfield & locks (licks) the ball (ala the Trap Door in TOM).

    I'm not a Kiss fan or in on any JPOP pre-orders, but I must admit that the artwork & lighting on the mockup looks pretty damn awesome.

    #17 7 years ago

    Can't stand kiss but this looks really good!

    #18 7 years ago

    it appears to me that the art reflects the current line up since spaceman does not look like Ace on the Backglass.


    #19 7 years ago

    The cat sure looks like Peter Criss, could just be prototype art.

    Magic Girl art looks real good also .

    #22 7 years ago

    It is JPOP so I am sure it will be acceptable as he is one of the best designers of all time in my book.

    #23 7 years ago

    Sorry no pics . He has stuff there and I believe he will be showing some of it , As far as playfield art he only showed me the lower part . Looks great ! If you look in the last picture that Concretehadt posted of the KISS game you can see some sideboob in black and white in the background , that is Magic girl art.

    #25 7 years ago

    Is he doing a seminar at the show today?

    #26 7 years ago

    Wow, what an appealing looking prototype! Even if the game turned out to be simple 80s style pinball, I'd still put my hand up for this machine.


    #27 7 years ago

    Looks fantastic!

    He is going to be working on the game the during the show .

    #29 7 years ago

    man, if only I could hit the lotto so I could continue to own every JPOP machine

    will work for JPOP games

    #30 7 years ago

    Lower playfield looks a bit busy. The rest of the art package looks great though!

    #31 7 years ago

    Hard to see in those pics but it looks like that is also the new cab design…….

    No mdf panels or cheap wood filler, 100% maple and "patented" no less…...

    sweet looking game, not a huge kiss fan but I would own one as it looks great and love the screen placement - screen would work awesome for the concert clips etc.

    #35 7 years ago

    Is he really going to get me for another deposit when I'm still waiting for RAZA...YES, It looks awesome! Still would like to see some game flow, design and rules for one of his new games.

    #36 7 years ago

    Quick video from today.

    #37 7 years ago

    The cabinet art looks really good!

    The backglass doesn't look too bad... though it could be improved IMO.

    The colors are good.

    Paul Stanley's legs are kind of in a weird position (he's standing funny)... the perspective looks a bit off (we can see the top of his boots even though we're looking up at him)... Ace Frehley's jaw looks disjointed.

    Overall the silhouette shapes (positive vs. negative space) could be improved (there are plenty of tangents)

    That said, I like the dynamic angles and the colors.

    #38 7 years ago

    Did Jpop show the new play field art for Raza or just back box above?

    #39 7 years ago

    I did not see it... I spoke with him a bit about Magic Girl, which he said the prototypes are under way. He is on the panel I am moderating tomorrow, and has been very kind in chatting about the business, so I will make a point to ask on RAZA Sunday.

    #40 7 years ago

    He just posted the play field art on the blog which looks great, can you ask him when he thinks MG and RAZA will be ready for production. Thanks for all the videos btw C2C!

    #41 7 years ago

    Peter Criss & Ace Frehley are NOT on the games graphics so I am not interested.

    #42 7 years ago

    I asked directly about MG and he told me he wanted to finish prototypes, bring to shows and produce.... Sounded like as soon as possible, but he was the first to admit these games are a huge undertaking as far as building/production. I want to be a little more clear as to what was on and what was off the record before I say anymore.

    #43 7 years ago

    JPOP is my favorite designer and his artistic talents and vision are unmatched IMO. Pity the only game of his I will probably ever own is WCS. Too rich for me, but I envy those who are in on his new games. They should be nothing short of stunning.

    #45 7 years ago

    I really like the art and layout of JPOP B/W games but every one of them falls extremely short on rules and longevity. to those in on his pins, I REALLY hope he has someone doing the rules correctly. because of that he is my LEAST favorite designer.
    Kiss LOOKS amazing, but for all we know rules won't be any deeper than the 1979 Kiss.

    #46 7 years ago

    Thinking Jpop should focus on Magic Girl and RAZA right now; considering AMH was started before both of them and is already done

    #47 7 years ago

    Kick ass!

    #48 7 years ago

    these pictures do not do this machine justice. Visually this clearly stood out and just popped.

    They could have a small tribute to them but as there not in the band anymore I'm not surprised I to would love the originals on the pin.
