TWIP reporting Beatles may have been moved up in front of Munsters.
Really all boils down to what is ready to roll and $$$$. If I'm not mistaken, Kaminkow when interviewed months ago said his rumored(Beatles) title was pretty much ready fall/4th quarter.
Shit...I hope not!
Already have the Stones and like it but I don’t need 2.
When I listen to the podcast and describe classic, I get the impression that it will be some sort of throwback to that era and not a rehash.
Could it be a pbr or dominos? Giving it that 60-80’s feel
Could it be some sort of stern machine going back earlier than the early 2000’s?
Actually Joe said on the podcast that the pricing isn’t going to be crazy like BM66.
The license may not have been as expensive as many believe, there is a ton of things that have the Beatles License. It was said they worked on getting this license for 10 years but that doesn’t necessarily have a correlation to big money.
Quoted from Yelobird:
You really should do some research on the band your talking about. A simple google search will show there is NO low cost Cheap license for Anything Beatles. Ever. Stern doing this title is a Really large feat but trust that it did come at a Substantial cost to pull off. This will not be a low cost pin and I personally think it will rank up there if not beyond Batman 66. Just a guess of coarse but this is Not a cheap pull license and the podcast with Kapow mentions this many times.
Did you listen to the podcast more than once?
The issue of cost was specifically asked and specifically stated not crazily priced.
Unless your saying he’s full of shit.
Didn’t say it was cheap but they make Beatles everything from magnets, backpacks,lamps, bedding, really everything you can imagine.
Quoted from jgentry:
Well you cant charge 15k for a seawitch tweak and reskin. I'm hearing premium price or close to that which is still crazy money for a throwback design. Hopefully it has some innovative and new stuff to make it worth it.
If it’s a classic design with great art, lcd display, good music integration, shaker etc....I have no issue with it being 7-8k.
Quoted from jgentry:
I love classic designs, I can buy 3-4 great ones for that. It's going to have to come together (see what I did there) as an amazing full package to sell at that price.
Good point, like what you did! Will be interesting to see what they come up with on this one.
I hope it's as good as I'm thinking it will be.
Quoted from mnpinball:
I do like the Seawitch game but kind of hard to see how they pull that off. I'm guessing there will be an LCD display?
Maybe they are only able to use a handful of songs, will be interesting to see how they integrate music into the game unless it will simply be a jukebox and select song at game start and that is it.
But it does have lots of drops, a spinner and a third flipper. Will be interesting to see how they pull this together modernized with music, art and possibly a display.
This could be really cool as long as it priced reasonably. A seawitch for 10k isn't going to work. I did hear it will be limited to one model and a set number of machines and that is it. I'm hoping it falls between pro and premium pricing.
