    Quoted from Grayman_EM:

    Think in Russian. I have seen the movie I think 1983?

    1982 but close enough. And yes, one of the reasons Gant (Eastwood) was chosen to steal the MIG 35 was because he knew Russian well enough to think in Russian even though he did have some deep psychological issues that could compromise the mission.

    How about 'The Tonight Show.'

    You have different modes for each host, along with a guest host mode. Instead of getting to Wizard Mode, you'd get to Karnac Mode. Seems like there would be plenty of material to make the game interesting.

    Stray Cats !

    #157 1 year ago

    Breaking Bad
    Armageddon

    #158 1 year ago
    Quoted from TigerLaw:

    Highlander
    Matrix
    The Fifth Element
    Predator

    I think these titles could be killer and hold their own in today's market.

    Perhaps we call them THE Pinball BIG 4

    All Classics

    Not to late for any of these gems !

    One can only hope.

    #159 1 year ago

    I'm really sad it's too late for these two

    Bally had a go with Black Belt

    Looked to be a fail ? certainly a rare bird.

    Now that I have Maiden, this one moves to the top of my wishlist.
    Firefly. Sure it only had 1 season and 1 movie, but what an awesome show. So many different things could be done with rules and callouts would be humorous and perfect for pinball.
    Doubt it ever happens, but there is a large following of fans still.

    I'm not a fan of the series, but I think a Harry Potter themed game would have killed on route.

    #163 1 year ago

    Mega Man, but like a modern music pin. 8 starting modes, each with a different song/boss/ruleset. Finishing each mode gives you an advantage in one other.

    Not too late I guess, but would have been nice to see Capcom do it themselves. Same applies to Sega and Sonic, ignoring tabletops and Spinball.

    #164 1 year ago

    Megadeth! and it’s never too late.

    #165 1 year ago

    They really ramped it up by mid 2nd season

    #166 1 year ago

    Stargate SG1
    Battlestar Galactica (reboot)
    The Outer Limits
    Samurai Jack
    Futurama

    Tucker's Witch

    (Anyone but me even remember the TV series?)

    #168 1 year ago

    District 9 ????

    #169 1 year ago

    I believe I may have the one that could actually get built - Rod Serling's "THE NIGHT GALLERY"

    » YouTube video

    I said this before too just maybe

    #171 1 year ago

    yes 1000 times! been saying it for years

    #172 1 year ago

    enter the dragon
    kickboxer
    Twilight
    the purge (its not to late, lets do it!!!!)
    Jaws
    any random rock group from the 70's, 80's or 90's

    Eminem
    Kid Rock
    linken park

    RUN DMC
    LL COOL J
    EPMD
    Eric B & Rakim
    Public Enemy
    NWA
    UTFO
    Fat Boys
    Ice T
    (basically any GOOD multi hit old school hip hop group)

    #173 1 year ago

    Reno 911 (the series, not the movie) So many recurring jokes that I think would fit great in a pinball game

    #174 1 year ago

    Matrix
    Monster Jam

    #175 1 year ago
    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    Bill & Ted's is on my short list of themes

    Well, maybe now there's a chance... https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1086064/

    Excellent!!

    Just saw raw thrills will be bringing us a halo arcade machine.
    Maybe it’s not to late for a pinball after all.

    Plasma sword ramp that glows....
    needs to be a good multiplayer game.
    Rocket launcher mech.
    Warthog special edition
    Base the art on zanzibar love that map
    Call outs like runnning riot
    Flood multiball
    This is probably worthy of its own thread. I am sure you guys will have ideas
    Monks singing the theme song...

    Halo 6 is coming. Along with them updating master chief collection

    #177 1 year ago

    Army of Darkness... think of the call outs!!!

    Army of Darkness (resized).jpg

    #178 1 year ago

    Non licensed general theme pins like they made in the 60's and early 70's.

    If we are talking licensed themes - too late - Saturday Night Fever, Bee Gees - way too late. LOL

    Many others and many already mentioned.

    If they would have made Men In Black, that would be one I think would still sell / trade today.

    Back to the Future if it would have been done a little better and with a game corresponding to each movie would make a neat little collection.

    The Lawrence Welk Show pin - this might even be close too being too old, too late now even in Nursing Homes.

    When the game was over it would play the Good Night song they did at the end of the show.

    #180 1 year ago

    Old, but timeless, what about:

    The Little Rascals
    Abbot and Castello
    Laurel and Hardy

    Horror theme :

    Poltergeist
    Phantasm

    Gotta have a bubble machine!

    #182 1 year ago

    Realistically, I wish Williams had released an Escape from LA pinball in 1996 since they had pins for films like Johnny Mnemonic and Congo the previous year.

    #183 1 year ago
    Quoted from PNorth:

    Army of Darkness... think of the call outs!!!

    "Alright you primitive screw-heads ... see this? This, is my BOOM-STICK!"

    The Little Rascals-are we talking about the old gang (silent era, yes there are silent) or the newer one of the 40's. I think they are all dead so no one would mind.

    Laurel and Hardy-they are on a few of the backglasses already.

    Poltergeist- the remake was horrible.

    #186 1 year ago

    How about
    Man from U.N.C.L.E
    Not Hans (resized).jpg

    . . . with the original 'Solo"

    #187 1 year ago

    Based on some of the themes coming out of Stern. It's never too late. Heck, Wizard of Oz was what? 70 years late?

    #188 1 year ago

    Laurel and Hardy had two games with Flicker and Prospector but sadly Abbot and Costello, the Marx Brothers, The Three Stooges don't have any. Such a waste of some iconic characters.

    Quoted from Frippertron:

    The real sad story is how Columbia Pictures made millions on the 3 Stooges and paid them badly. Also read how the murder of the 3 Stooges manager is tied into James Bond's author Albert Broccoli. Yes I am not making this up he was one of three gentlemen who may have murdered their manager.

    #190 1 year ago

    I thought Ian Fleming was the author of the James Bond books.

    #191 1 year ago

    Ted would have made a hilarious pin--imagine "White-Trash Names multiball!"

    #192 1 year ago

    Harvey Birdman, Attorney at Law
    Would be freakin hilarious with callout material from the show. Not sure how licensing would be with so many classic cartoon characters involved.

    Also CC Hollywood.

    Beetlejuice was just MADE for pinball!

    #195 1 year ago

    Wow look at all the Matrix votes! +1 from me
    Blade runner
    Breaking bad

    #196 1 year ago

    A "Tippecanoe And Tyler Too" pin to celebrate the U.S. presidential election campaign of 1840. Nobody really cares that much anymore.

    #197 1 year ago

    Great thread. This has kind of turned into a most wanted though as a lot of these are still viable. Sticking with the "its too late" thing though...

    Braveheart. Movie "was" a HOT license for a good while. It was pre-wacked-out Gibson and the battles and art could have been awesome.

    Cheers. One of my favorite shows growing up. Modes could be all over the place. Call outs a plenty. Pool could be incorporated. Norms tab. Sigh. What might have been.

    V The show. I'm dating myself here. This was MUST watch TV when it was on. Those iconic shuttle toys everywhere and lizard aliens morphing from humans. I would have jumped on that one.

    Battlezone. Based on the vector 3d video game title. Think original Tron with simpler more kitschy early 80's graphics (if thats possible). Shots could be at tanks that light when needed. Video mode could have been incredible.

    #198 1 year ago

    Ferris Buehler
    Karate Kid
    Caddyshack
    Van Halen

    #199 1 year ago

    A pin based off of all the Mad Max movies would have been killer!!

    madmaxz (resized).jpg

    #200 1 year ago

    A lot of Americans might not remember this show but it has a huge cult following in England and around the world and has been on with virtually the same cast for over 30 years now ( with lots of breaks).
