    I just wish SS was deeper. I'd get one if that was the case. Best call outs ever IMO.

    #202 7 years ago

    I guess I should have said that when I'm scared stiff, I just don't find it deep enough.

    #203 7 years ago
    Quoted from BC_Gambit:

    I am not making a pronouncement on the maturity of the owners, it is just clear we have a different outlook on life. To me, it is not a classy pin. To each, his or her own.

    I think your taking this hobby waaaayyyy to serious. Classy pins? Really? Never really considered that while playing them before. I'm just looking for something fun, loaded with features, and themes I find appealing. And yes, I consider boobs, legs, hot chicks a plus. I pity you guys that feel you have to grow up and fit in with the stereotypical older generation. F-that...I'll never have a old man mindset. I'm 40 and my 10 year kid considers me the coolest guy he knows (yes I act silly still) and I plan to stay that way. Life is to short so lighten up a bit and have some fun.

    I get it, you don't like it. It's okay, you don't have to.

    Quoted from BC_Gambit:

    I guess it must take a bigger man to slavishy bow down to cheap boob and dick jokes, than it does to question why I would want that taking up space in my house.

    Way to serious, chief. Remember, it is only a game.

    Fair enough, I can accept this.

    It is pretty clear that when it comes to some aspects of pin culture, I just don't get it.

    I don't want to dog on the CPR guys, but the concept art for the lost vegas project was more trashy than classy. It is possible to do sexy in a classy way (Centaur might be one of the top examples of this looking at the women on the playfield).

    On the opposite end of the spectrum you have Big Dick. Its sex, but it ain't sexy.

    For what its worth, I am looking forward to playing both Elvira tables on my xbox whenever that update comes out. I just wouldn't spend the $5K+ to put both Elvira tables in my house.

    Hmm.... weirdly enough if the question was: Would you pay $5 for a new digital Elvira pin designed by Greg and Dennis... I would glady have said yes. Would I spend $5-10K for one for my house.... I can't see it.

    #206 7 years ago

    Hey when's the last time anyone's watched Elvira's 1988 movie? I think I saw it in '89 on VHS. I heard it's on DVD now, but does it still hold up? All I remember is her rival in the movie (She was kind of a Flo-ish looking chick? Not Flo from Progressive, but Flo from 'Alice' fame?) having large knockers that turned out to be tissues.

    #207 7 years ago

    I understand where you're coming from, but generally speaking, pinball is not really highbrow. That being said, some of the artwork in pinball (IMHO) could grace the walls of a Victorian mansion and not look out of place. That is, if it were on canvas and tastefully framed and matted.

    Quoted from BC_Gambit:

    On the opposite end of the spectrum you have Big Dick. Its sex, but it ain't sexy.

    On this point, we agree. It's shock, just for the sake of it with no real theme.

    #208 7 years ago

    Honch, I think I just found that image online with Google. I don't know if it's an actual poster...I'll check...

    #209 7 years ago

    Excellent! Thanks, That would definitely be one for the game room.

    #210 7 years ago

    Yeah,,,I was gonna put a Deadly Spawn monster in there someplace...

    Oh man..... you just dated yourself there! Sad thing is, I'm in the same club.

    I want one of those too!!

    #213 7 years ago

    I have another of the original Scared Stiff posters I bought from Ebay. We'll talk...

    #214 7 years ago

    The size of the poster is 36x24 !

    Have you seen her latest movie Elvira's haunted Hills ? 2002. Just re-released on DVD again in 2011. Also her Movie Macabre TV show started back up in 2010 in syndication with new episodes.

    That is such a great picture and explains my previous post for the idea. Maybe I can get the credit or name on the new machine somewhere.

    #217 7 years ago

    Would love one! SS is one of my favorites.

    #218 7 years ago

    I like Scared Stiff more than MM...sorry!

    yes to elvira. oh, how about a mystery science theatre 3000 pin?

    Quoted from mrgone:

    MST3K... not really commercially viable but having custom voices to heckle the player at every turn would be awesome. Basically what they do with movies... only making fun of every borked shot, flail fest and drain.

    Heck, even having somebody sit there and chimp flip could garner some choice responses

    Hmm....

    #222 7 years ago

    So many better pins could be made...........

    I am in, especially with zombies

    #226 7 years ago

    music and voices from Rob Zombie would be a must also...

    I second that, but I doubt we are the majority

    Third! I'm sure Charlie from Spooky would chime in on this...

    #229 7 years ago

    I'd be seriously interested, thanks for asking! Please make it happen.

    Follows a brief, skippable, personal story with the elvira theme to prove it can't get 'old':
    I only found out about the Elvira character this week, thanks to Pinball Arcade videogame developers.
    I promptly got my hands on the 2 movies and liked them a lot even though I don't like horror, halloween or 'cheap' comedy. Because of that, and not only thanks to the Cleavage, I got quite fond of Elvira as a character and was also amused and surprised to see how there are *good* videogames about her, other than pinball machines.

    I would for sure get the 3rd Elvira pinball game as my first machine (!.. youngster) if it included, in any way, a reference to what I consider one of the highest quality moments in movie history:

    Elvira 3: Deeper, Harder, Faster.

    #232 7 years ago

    Whoever posted that Ernest clip is a genius. Haha!

    I'd love to see another Elvira machine. Hell, an Ernest themed game would be campy and fun too.

    #233 7 years ago
    Quoted from Launchpad:

    Whoever posted that Ernest clip is a genius. Haha!

    AN EVIL GENIUS!!!

    #234 7 years ago
    Quoted from mnpinball:

    Have you seen her latest movie Elvira's haunted Hills ?

    I have and I much prefer "Mistress of the Dark". Actually, I don't even think it's close.

    #235 7 years ago

    That Elvira's animation would make an interesting video mode... try to stay focused then !
    Elvira rules. Forever!

    #236 7 years ago

    Out of date? Any guy under the age of 35 would take one look at her, and would most likely be in heat! I would take out a loan for that machine! Very cool! I want one!!!!!!!!!!!!

    #237 7 years ago
    Quoted from DennisNordman:

    Ah, I should have mentioned this. We are talking full blown modern game. Elvira is one character in this adventure game. Could be zombies, could be UFOs, could be monsters...

    In.

    Love my SS BTW Dennis--just fun to play: Stiff-O-Meter is an enjoyable challenge; Spider Wheel is so neat: got Spider Multiball the other day for the first time...WOW!

    #238 7 years ago
    Quoted from NM:

    got Spider Multiball the other day for the first time...WOW!

    Curious, how long did it take you to get Spider Multiball? I'm sort of putting that up there in the realm of "I hope I can get it once someday but, I'm not holding my breath".

    #239 7 years ago
    Quoted from NM:

    Pretty impressive, Neil. I've had my "Stiff" for three years now (maybe I should see a DR.) and still can't do it. it's the first game I have ever owned, where I couldn't finish every mode.

    Was just thinking this same thing. Would work great with an lcd backglass.

    #241 7 years ago
    Quoted from NY2Colorado:

    I was thinking about this the other day. As much as I want to see a modern version of an Elvira pin, I think I'd still prefer some classic artwork by Greg Freres, on a traditional BG. I think a color DMD or a small LCD would be preferable. As far as the rest of the pin goes, state of the art, all the way.

    Let's see...got the game in July of '11 IIRC.

    Thanks Dale; guess even a sub-par player like me gets lucky every now & then (IIRC, the path to get there was to focus on Extra Balls, right ramps/more spins, and spins as your skill shot).

    #243 7 years ago

    I have no idea how I managed to completely miss this thread up until now. Dennis is probably my favorite designer of all time, so this is very exciting news indeed. The only problem I have with an Elvira theme is the potentially racy artwork. For example, as much as I love Greg's gorgeous artwork on "Whoa Nellie!", my wife would not be happy if I brought something like that into the house. This is one of the things that appealed to me about BHZA. I love zombies, and JPop is doing a family friendly take on the theme. I'm not suggesting that Dennis and Greg should do a family friendly game. I'm merely pointing out that their new pin may, unfortunately, not be marketed towards someone like me.

    #244 7 years ago

    Yes Please!!! Another Elvira game will sell! NIB all the way for me. I'd put a deposit down today if I could.

    #245 7 years ago

    I would put a deposit down on this way before I'd put a deposit down on the hobbit.

    #246 7 years ago
    Quoted from gweempose:

    I'm surprised how often I've heard guys say this. Honestly, I've had kids(under 12) play my SS and I don't think they have ever picked up on any of the innuendo's of the game. Not to mention, my Wife enjoys the artwork almost as much as I do.

    #247 7 years ago

    Wanna open the kids eyes and ears...watch 2 Broke Girls!

    #248 7 years ago
    Quoted from Honch:

    Ted, do you know where I can get a poster like that?

    You can get a print from the artist here http://www.byronwinton.com/spotlight.php?type=shop&id=198

    #249 7 years ago

    Wow. Uhm, Cassandra is/was a lot better looking without the Elvira make/get up. Heresy?

    Totally agree.
