Well a pinside moderator posted last night that it would have brand new innovation and everyone should have their money ready. Then deleted his post. I guess that means it’s true.

#202 47 days ago

Fingers crossed it works well this time.

#203 47 days ago

Bring back the vari-target you cowards

Darn magnets - screwing up the world.

#205 47 days ago

A double spinner

#206 47 days ago

magnets people!

seriously though, keith is just such a good designer that this game has my attention. It's not a terrible theme by any means just doesn't excite me. With Keith AND Zombie though - damn that's a great combo. If the actual pinball looks great, the theme is good enough to get me there.

Quoted from pinballaddicted:

I hope not. I love the fact that our pinball machines are not connected to the internet like everything else in the house.

What exactly would be the point of online pinball? I can't think of anything.

Quoted from SunnRAT:

I know a few ladies who dig stuff like Road Warrior, Sabbath, horror movies and speed metal

Well then I'm buying a ticket and coming to Arizona my friend.

#212 47 days ago

That will brighten up a room

#213 47 days ago

There is enough stainless in that thing to make it weight the same as a JJP widebody.

#214 47 days ago

It looks like Elwin really knows how to mix it up in the 3 flipper design, ramps, and mechanisms.

#215 47 days ago
Quoted from SunnRAT:

Absolutely correct. The replies are no surprise either. The narrow idea that it's only macho dudes who want good themes and no kiddie crap.
I know a few ladies who dig stuff like Road Warrior, Sabbath, horror movies and speed metal, despite some who think it's "real men" crap. Whatever that means.

Both my wife and I are fans of all that, she's specifically is more into thrash, doom/drone, black, and death metal than speed metal, if one wants to make a distinction between thrash and speed. But we also like Toy Story. Buzz Lightyear is a real alpha spaceman. His Robert Z'Dar/Bruce Campbell jaw/chin is the epitome of masculinity after all.

#216 47 days ago

yeah, layout looks great but a big no for me on the theme. looks 10x better than the first Avengers.

#217 47 days ago

I'm getting Hulk Hogan flashbacks with all the red and yellow and I don't know much of anything about the theme. Game looks lots of fun from the video though, and I can't imagine it not living up to the hype because Elwin is our lord and savior.

#218 47 days ago

First time for a while that Pro owners aren't going to be able to convince themselves they aren't missing anything!

They’re always missing something.

but this one seems like it actually matters vs TMNT, etc.

That alien flip ramp on the right is awesome.

#221 47 days ago

I don't care for the theme at all, but damn...Keith can make about anything look like a purchase to ponder.

#222 47 days ago
Quoted from delt31:

It’s always going to matter to some and not to others. Elwins pros are always fun. There’s a lot to the premium for the ones that wanted it to stand out too.

I’ve never bought a game before playing it, but Keiths games might make me change that tune. Haha

same, not feeling the theme but that design is sick

#227 47 days ago

Is that spinning post target from TOTAN?

#228 47 days ago

Well I’m not selling my IMDN for a LE but I’m going after a Prem. What’s the order they come out are prems last?

#229 47 days ago
Quoted from Kkoss24:

Yes. Normally pros ship first with LE shortly after, then premium.

#230 47 days ago

Alrighty then... I guess this post has to move on. So what will be KME’s next game?

Gojira!!

#233 47 days ago

To me the theme is uninteresting, but I like what Keith has put in the game, especially the LE/Premium!

#234 47 days ago

The greatest pinball player of all time is building up an impressive game design resume

Stern must be patting themselves on the back for signing Keith up!

#235 47 days ago

Looks like a great layout, great artwork. Look forward to see someone shooting it.

My kids love the avengers movies (age 11), so I showed them the clip real quick...

They said it looked ok.... I asked why just ok.... basically they want a bash toy. Go figure.
Also wondering if this is one of those cases where if they saw the actors from the movie if they would relate to it more.

I wouldn't change a thing by the way, just interesting to see from a kids point of view.

Meh. Most bash toys are not very good.

and they should be

Quoted from Shapeshifter:

I used to think the same thing. But I went Pro with BKSOR and after playing Pro and Premium, and honestly, with no history of the previous games, I'm happy. Same with GoT. I played the Pro and enjoyed it, bought the Premium, and was disappointed and later sold it.

You just never know. That said, missing that Captain Marvel ramp is going to suck. However, missing the gauntlet.....not so much. Seriously, the Pro gauntlet plastic looks 10 times better. Come on modders....to the rescue!

There is a bash toy... it just happens to be the exact size and shape as a pinball. Thor captive ball bash toy!!

You sir, are a wise-acre.

#241 44 days ago

Not to rehash previous posts... but I am going to rehash previous posts.

There is a lot of love for early SS games these days. An original layout with a more simplistic (but technically challenging) ruleset would be really cool to see from KME. If it was designed with tournament play in mind from the start, I feel like a lot of us would be really into that.

Of course there’s the whole less expensive cost of the BOM for a design like this (no need for design of mechanical marvels, etc.) that Uncle Gary would like as well.

#242 44 days ago

I’ve said it before, but I’d love to see what Keith could do if he was tasked with a home pin. He has had some unique mechanical designs and non-coil-powered toys, like the bullseye jump ramp target, the spinning truck, the Captain Marvel ramp, the direction and velocity detecting spinning plate, and his those ramp turnarounds instead of VUKs.

That said, Keith is the new golden goose. Let him do what he wants

I do agree with this sentiment, but what are those things? Enquiring minds want to know!
