    Pinside... Zombie Yeti has done it again. I smell another home run for Stern Pinball. Just posted by the legend, the master, Zombie Yeti himself. PLAY TIME IS OVER - Hello Kitty Pinball! This is the Pro model and the LE has blood that shoots out at the player. Think GWAR meets pinball. From my sources it's a re-theme of Walking Dead. My source has never been wrong. ever.

    If you have been watching the streams with Jack Danger or listening to Coast to Coast pinball you knew this was coming, but it's finally here.

    I'm confused about the image they're trying to go for. Why is there blood on the banner when the machine is advertised to be based on a really cute kids show?

    #8 3 years ago

    Fun? I have a whole lot of other names for April Fools' day.

    #9 3 years ago

    Just be sure not to make a comment about it on Stern's Facebook page or they'll delete it...

    #10 3 years ago

    I like it better than the GB translite on the LE I ordered.

    #11 3 years ago

    Dear lord...

    Facebook:

    "I kinda hate that this is a joke. That any theme that isn't obliviously made for male players is funny. I'm not a Hello Kitty fan but I know there are many people who do love it. Hey if it had original artwork it could be really eye catching. Same with My Little Pony that actually had a large male audience as well. Well here's hoping the next game will actually reach both genders."

    #12 3 years ago

    Still better than Alien....

    #13 3 years ago

    The fact that My Little Pony is even being considered is creepy as F@$%. Sure little girls like it, but there is a whole other section of dudes that are into it as well....and I dont care what anyone says they are Creepy.

    I know, right?
    When I read that on Facebook I could not roll my eyes hard enough.
    Some people can manage to suck the fun out of anything.

    #15 3 years ago
    Quoted from puck:

    From my sources it's a re-theme of Walking Dead.

    the real joke is that it is true, but your got this one fact wrong. It is really a retheme of Whoaaaa Nellie.

    #16 3 years ago

    So did Sanrio approve the use of their character in a violent portrayal like that, or is Stern being a bunch of hypocrites?

    Damn it, now I am going to have to cancel my Ghostbusters LE and order this.

    #20 3 years ago

    Those my little pony dudes are called "Bronys"... It is are real thing and not just on 4/1...
    very disturbing.

    #21 3 years ago

    Yeah if anyone listens to Howard Stern they sent a guy to "Bronycon" and apparently a large portion of "Bronys" get off on My Little Pony. For that reason alone I have banned my daughter from having anything to do with that show. I don't need some creepy dude having something in common with my daughter.

    Anyways, I gotta go pick up my pony suit from the dry cleaner.

    #24 3 years ago

    In the Social Caste system I always thought pinball players and Bronies were about at the same level?

    Looks like I have offended a Brony...I would appreciate every "Brony" to please downvote my posts, that way I know whom to avoid in public.

    The down votes are for ignorance mainly and the need to generalize. Sure, it is a weird fandom, but it is harmless overall.

    Pinball nerds: "These other nerds are nerds!"

    The nerds have won. Nerd culture is everywhere. Soon, we'll have to have a Revenge of the Jocks movie.

    Grown men who are turned on by a little girls cartoon about horses do not seem harmless to me. I am not saying that every person who likes the show is a perv but enough seem to be for me to want to stay away.

    Quoted from jamieflowers:

    I may be wrong - and I think we all know there's got to be some people who who can tell us the real deal - but I believe these grown men are turned on by My Little Pony the same way we are about pinball. Most of us aren't having sex with our pinball machines.

    Seriously, it's just another weirdo nerdy subculture.

    #34 3 years ago
    Quoted from jamieflowers:

    I am not saying that every person who likes the show is a perv but enough seem to be for me to want to stay away.

    So have you gone undercover to find out their sexual desires, or just watch Brony porn? How do you know what turns them on?

    #35 3 years ago

    I barely know of anyone in the brony fandom that is turned on by the characters in MLP (typically those people would be classified as "Furries" but that is another whole discussion in itself). So yes CrazyLevi, it is just another weirdo nerdy subculture fandom that isn't worth anyone getting so agitated over.

    Pinball on.

    #36 3 years ago

    My knowledge starts and ends with two articles that I have read and several interviews I have heard...I am sticking by my statement. It is Creepy. And if anyone disagrees ask their wives/girlfriends/sisters how they feel about dudes that are into My Little Pony (and I know someone will say that their girlfriend/wife whatever loves it too, but most people should be creeped out) And with that I think this will be my last post about My Little Pony.

    We can agree with "Pinball On "

    #38 3 years ago

    Ok No more Broneys! At least until stern releases the pro and LE versions of the My Little Pony table! lol

    #39 3 years ago

    Agree to disagree? Fine by me.

    As for the original topic....Happy April Fool's Day?

    #40 3 years ago
    Quoted from azpinguy:

    Will the Pro be Bronys and the LE Furries, or the other way around? Sorry...couldn't resist...

    Anyway, I can actually think of at least three people who aren't even into pinball that might strongly consider getting a Yeti-style Sanrio machine were one to be made.

    Hmm... now that I'm thinking about it, I can't decide if that's cool or just plain sad

    How much research is appropriate for Bronys? I should have guessed guys that are into little girl toys/shows are sensitive...

    This was the 3rd or 4th link result returned by Google:

    "But, overwhelmingly, Bronies are harmless. Friendly, even, and certainly welcoming."

    #45 3 years ago

    I'm more dismayed by judgmental, prejudiced blowhards casting aspersions on things they know nothing about, other than how to jump to conclusions and assume the worst, than by good-natured adult male oddballs finding a "little girls' show" to be as charming as it obviously is to anyone who ever bothered to watch it.

    I have watched many episodes with my daughter, and they are sweet, often clever, and usually have a quite touching moral about how we should all treat each other.

    And John de Lancie (Q on STTNG) plays a (now reformed) villain called Discord, to great effect. His comments during the Brony documentary (was on Netflix, now on Amazon Prime) are great.

    Not letting one's kid watch this show just because some dudes like it enough to make a humorous big deal about liking it is shameful. Prejudice bad.

    Knee-jerk disgust-happy fear mongers ought to watch it themselves, maybe they'd learn something from the life lessons proffered.

    Personally I'd ban my kids from having anything to do with Howard Stern.

    Anyways, there's a fairly sizable group of people called "Furries" that get off to animals. Gonna ban your kids from having anything to do with animals? Or heck, there's people in the world called "Pedophiles" who get off to kids. Gonna ban your kids from having anything to do with kids? The logic behind this seems flawed. There are people like this everywhere in the world, regardless of whatever their "item" of choice is, so no reason to judge the item because of it.

    #48 3 years ago

    To everyone and no one in particular... remember what this thread was about? An April fools day joke.
    So please keep the discussion civil. Thanks.

    Bronies are the hardcore My Little Pony followers. Cloppers are the ones who turn My Little Pony into something sexual. Bronies disapprove of Cloppers. I listen to too much Howard Stern.
