I specifically asked Gary Stern about doing a Kiss pinball machine when I met him last year at the Southern Pinball Festival.. we talked about it for several minutes, and Gary himself said he WOULD LOVE to do a Kiss pinball machine! He went on to say that he met with Gene Simmons several years ago to talk about the prospect, but that Gene wanted a licensing price that was far above and beyond what could be profitable for stern, even with the potentially higher #'s of pins they could sell with that title. He went on to say that unfortunately Gene is the one that has prevented another Kiss machine from being produced. Gary said that the Kiss licensing fee that Gene wants is far above and beyond what is spent on Disney titles (tron) or movie themes (Ironman, SPiderman, Avatar, etc.).
That being said, I would love to get a Kickstarter program going to help either Stern or JJP cover the licensing fee, just like how the Pinball Arcade was able to raise over $55K to bring TZ to several electronic platforms. Of course Stern or JJP would have to be the one to start the Kickstarter, so it's probably not going to happen..
