    Infinity Gauntlet!!!
    I read through this whole thread certain I would see it and nothing.
    It's the perfect theme for a pinball machine. Each of the stones are a different mode.
    And with the popularity of the movies and the culmination of 10+ years coming together in the next month if someone doesn't release a MCU based pin now or very soon it's a huge missed opportunity.

    Regarding The Legend of Zelda, I'm pretty sure I read somewhere that Gottlieb's Gladiators was originally supposed to be a Zelda pin but they had to re-theme it for some reason.

    I'd love a Heavy Metal pin, based on either the animated movie or the magazine itself.

    I saw the road runner and just started laughing. "I just need two more orbit combos" and post pops up, magnet kicks in and pulls ball right to the outlane.

    Why can't I ever get a super jackpot!!!

    Ok one more try, adding quarters in the acme phone!!

    #158 1 year ago

    How about an original theme?

    a space alien verses a pot smoking, white Russian drinking bowling bum.

    I was thinking today that a Jimmy Buffett machine could be a fun thing. Plenty of song choices and they could put them in every Margaritaville

    #178 1 year ago

    I will never understand why people like Jaws as a theme modes need to be small victories before the big victory at the end. All Jaws has is barrel 1 barrel 2 barrel 3 after that you have to change the storyline keep the boat from overheating mode keep the shark from destroying the boat mode. Could it have cool toy yes could it be a fun game yes but not if you want the game to fallow the story.

    Hmm...I'm surprised that I haven't heard anyone else mention Duck Tales before. Seem like a great theme. Overall, I think the main goal would be to complete shots to fill Uncle Scrooge's money bin. Once it's full, perhaps have a bonus mode where as you make repeated loops or ramps the display shows Scrooge diving into and swimming though his money. The modes could be based on various episodes, where Launchpad McQuack is flying you around the world in search for a treasure. I might use locations like: The Amazon, Bermuda Triangle, Egypt, Himalayas, Transylvania, and Outer Space. Along the way you are of course battling villains. It would also make sense to have the ball lock and corresponding multiball represent Huey, Dewey, and Louie. They are very defined by their shirt colors, so that works well with color changing LEDs. I think it would be a fun game to develop.

    Okay, I'd look into a Gravity Falls pin if it were made.

    Grappling hook toy all the way and a multiball to hit targets to break apart the giant gnome. The modes on this pin could be endless. You'd have enough modes for a game from a single episode, let alone the series.

    There would have to be some reference to the three journals, A water tower toy and many call outs from the show (I can imagine many made by Stan, Soos and Bill Cypher).

    Conan The Barbarian (comic based)

    Has there really not already been a Conan pinball machine?!? That IS a no-brainer, and would be awesome if it were to use Frank Frazetta’s art!

    To the guy who suggested Spinal Tap, it’s been done! I played it at Texas Pinball Festival.
