But it could be hard to say, depends on how well MB sells... if it sells well, and they get enough capital, they can either take on bigger BOM projects, or expand their capabilities and up their production rates. TZ once was the standard we all wanted in our pins... toys, modes, and deeper rules. Nowadays it getting harder to gauge the market because it is full of all kinds of players, operators, and collectors, from all eras, early EM, Early SS, ‘90’s BW, current lot. One thing is most likely, it will be a BW, more than likely from the 90’s, and will get a facelift on dots, gi, and a topper, but Captain Obvious could have told you that.
If I had my wish fulfilled, by any manufacturer, it would be to do a modern update to Bally’s Fireball... use the theme, keep the table layout and disk, update the ball locks with maybe a scoop on the left and some other god themed toy lock on the right. Keep the kicker, use a standard inlane flipper arrangement with center up post instead of zipper flippers. Add an up/down ramp at the skill shot exit that lets ball roll under when the ball exits the skill shot, or can be lowered to allow a shot from left flipper to make the ramp and go above the upper arch to the left side of the playfield then downfield to a diverter that sends ball to left or right inlane. Expand the ruleset, add a bunch of modes and dmd dots or lcd display and an RGB “melt your eyes” light show. Yeah... this.
