    Quoted from Looprunner:

    Is the Nightmare Before Christmas game a real Multimorphic thing or just a demo game?

    Quoted from Looprunner:

    Ah, I saw the P-ROC machine after it and assumed they were both the same. It's nice!

    The development thread is here:

    Quoted from flynnibus:

    someone needs to find the mysterious stern PF printing/clearing operation while on the tour...

    I did. I was told they make the play fields in house then send them out for art and clear coat then brought back to the factory for install.

    Quoted from flynnibus:

    So no one had interesting sightings from their stern tour?

    black knight topper. pretty cool actually. the head moves around and cool flames .nothimg more intresting

    oh also saw playfield preview section the rack and back boards labeled "Jaws" was told in meant jurassic park???? But labeled Jaws J.A.W.S. take that for it worth

    the wall of microwaves cracks me up everytime[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

    It always amazes me that they have that huge of an amp draw in one place and got service there. That wall of microwaves has to be drawing 180-240amps if all of them are running. That's a LOT, and doesn't even cover the fridges...

    How does this expo compare to TPF? Similar size?

    #610 34 days ago
    Quoted from Pinless:

    How does this expo compare to TPF? Similar size?

    For number of games? Maybe half.

    #611 34 days ago
    Quoted from Leeb18509:

    For number of games? Maybe half.

    Wow, I assumed the Chicago expo would be the largest given the proximity to the manufacturers.

    #612 34 days ago

    Everything is bigger in Texas!

    #613 34 days ago

    Hi guys! Glad to be here at expo, if anybody wants to grab a beer tomorrow (Friday) and chat about the future of pinball I'd love to. I'm not new to pinball by any means but I recently found myself in the pinball industry career-wise and I love to hear input and ideas from fellow pinheads.

    #614 34 days ago

    Streaming.....anyone?

    #615 34 days ago

    Not even the Stern factory tour is streamed this year?

    JARED?!

    #616 34 days ago

    We can have a beer at the meet and high five night!!

    Tons of JP premiums on the line for whoever asked.

    Quoted from DS_Nadine:

    Oh, well we at least have this bit of prohibited filming:

    That’s an awesome topper. Finally one that isn’t just flat or redundantly says the name of the machine. Never understood toppers but these new ones from stern and CGC are making me change my mind!

    #622 34 days ago
    Quoted from DS_Nadine:

    Oh, well we at least have this bit of prohibited filming:

    Very cool looking!

    That almost makes me want a Black Knight SoR.

    Quoted from hawkfanz:

    I have some nitpicks after my initial excitement (why 2 castles, wich btw. consist mostly of the gate; the helmet looks plasticy and the shoulders are flat plastics and not molded) but alltogether it's still way impressive and a lot of work synching all his movements to every line of speech.

    I really want a BKSoR and even more so now,... just some more essential things to pay for then pinball right now sadly. XD

    Quoted from Tuna_Delight:

    Very cool looking!
    That almost makes me want a Black Knight SoR.

    I'm all for these great interactive toppers, but its getting to the point where you have to ask why put all this amazing interactivity, movement, voice etc into a topper and not on the playfield?

    #625 34 days ago
    Quoted from DS_Nadine:

    Oh, well we at least have this bit of prohibited filming:

    What I don’t understand is why stern can’t do toppers like this all the time AND release them with the game. I feel like this and Star Wars both would have sold well at release and now have lost steam and they will never release them. Lots of lost dollars.....

    #626 34 days ago
    Quoted from WackyBrakke:

    Well with Star Wars I think it really was a licensing issue and now with some rekindled interrest, due to the reskin, it may regain financial viability.
    With Black Knight... well it is a lot of work to synch the topper to the speech, ESPECIALLY when the code is still changing?

    Plus this is a side business with way more custom parts that have to be build in small charges, so it's kinda hard/ expensive to get them manufactured quickly?

    In addition it makes sense to set manufacturing run numbers according to sales of the main game.

    Many variables in that.

    Stern gives code names for their games. Guardians of the Galaxy was Furry Hats; Jurassic Park was JAWS.

    Need a better all-encompassing view of the homebrew section, but here's part of it!

    Where do you get one of those Wonder Woman backglass’ and plastic sets?

    #633 34 days ago

    Is anyone coming back through Ohio on their way home from Expo and wanting to make some cash to haul some games back?

    #634 34 days ago
    Quoted from homebrood:

    Decided to go Friday and stay Friday night. I live pretty close but got a room anyway. I like having a quit place to take breaks and not have to worry about driving home late, if I indulge in a couple or three beers. There are still rooms at the discount rate! I was surprised they are still available. The block was sold out before a couple times I think, but they must have opened up new block recently. See ya'll there!

    and what was the discount rate?

    Did anything of note get said at the 6:30PM American Pinball presentation? I haven't seen a thread on it and no stream I could find...

    #642 34 days ago

    I came here to read about new MM version/topper but don’t see anything!

    #644 34 days ago

    Never mind (duplicate response)

    Quoted from vireland:

    no, not really. Mostly covered Oktoberfest Art and software updates/changes in the production model. At the end discussed moving into their larger factory. No announcements of next pin. Will be releasing some code updates (both Oktoberfest and Houdini) soon.

    Thanks for bringing awareness to this via your question! Been a ghosttown for info.

    Thank you so much for the info! Hoped to see a reveal, and checked madly at 7:30EST on their Facebook page, twitter, and feeds for Expo, Pinball life, etc on Twitch, and nada. Glad I didn't miss a big announcement, but hope a video shows up later!

    Thanks again!

    Celts by Haggis Pinball. Love it already.
    Wasn't aware there's an Aussie pinball manufacturer. Artwork looks fun, any further insights?
