    So any that should have been manufactured but never was and could have been big at the time, but now it's to late to see them as popularity has waned.

    A few that I thought of. Get the kids interested when they are young.

    YuGiOh

    Pokémon

    Any others?

    Ya'll know damn well it's not "too late" for most of these.

    #21 11 months ago

    I’m wondering when talk for a Deadpool pin will start. Imagine the call outs!

    #22 11 months ago

    The Munsters

    #23 11 months ago

    I would have liked something from the Mad Max / Road Warrior Theme.

    Quoted from kst8cat:

    The Fifth Element

    #26 11 months ago

    So I think a lot of older themes would still work quite nicely. For example, I think Harry Potter or The Goonies would still probably sell quite well. There are however a few themes that I think would have sold well in the past, but now wouldn't have as much appeal. One that comes to mind would be the Da Vinci Code. Ten years ago, it was one of the top licenses and would have been a good seller. Now, meh. Some others include M*A*S*H, Zombieland, and Hunger Games. Though, I'd still be interested in Zombieland. That has always been my pick for the best zombie licence. Much better humor to work with then The Walking Dead. I think "the rules" would work well for a non-linear set of goals. Complete X orbits to complete Rule #1: Cardio. I think there were ten rules used in the movie, but there are actually 32 rules on the list. Plus, you've got Woody Allan, the carnival, kills of the week, Twinkies, and Bill Murray. Maybe a personal pick, but I'd take Zombieland off my "too late" list.

    Rambo
    Predator
    Robocop (1&2)
    Blade Runner
    Airwolf
    Star Wars
    Blue Thunder with Roy Scheider (No one would buy it...except me....Love that movie)

    The Fifth Element

    Horrible movie for Bruce Willis why not everybody's favorite "DIEHARD" !

    #30 11 months ago

    Harry Potter -saga. Despite any talks, its too late for that pin IMO

    #31 11 months ago
    Quoted from Frippertron:

    The Legend of Zelda

    One of the best Zelda games ever just came out not too long ago, so I would say although it's unlikely a Zelda pin would ever be made, it's not "too late" to make one. (As you can tell by my avatar, I am a bit biased in this opinion though )

    Men in black
    The Beatles

    How about Hudson Hawk or Death Becomes Her?

    Quoted from Nepi23:

    Harry Potter -saga. Despite any talks, its too late for that pin IMO

    I think Harry Potter would have done better seven or eight years ago, but it's timeless IMO. There will always be new kids discovering the books and movies. My girls are six and they are just starting to read the books. Plus you have the whole Wizarding World at Universal Studios. I still think Harry Potter would be one of the hottest themes.

    It's never too late to go back. And the 80s are the gift that keeps on giving. All of the above but I wish they'd made...

    But the biggest travesty of all is that Chicago's second most famous export, didn't get a pinball game....

    Bill & Ted's is on my short list of themes I'd like to do after Rick & Morty and Spaceballs are done, especially if they actually do a new movie.

    #48 11 months ago

    Action:

    Gladiator, The Matrix

    Comedy Show

    Hogan's Heros (nice to see a WWII based pin again with great sound and slapstick comedy)

    Horror:

    Halloween and/or Friday the 13th, (the originals from the 80's not the re-fakes) also Jaws (part I).

    Music:

    Lately we have been music band to death but Rocky Horror Picture Show would have been nice too.
