Its international RUSH day and just wanted to initiate focused discussion what this pin could be and will be. RUSH was a tremendous musical force through my late teens and twenties. I am hoping that Borg has taken a different approach to music pins. A rock concert approach would be too copy paste from Led Zepplin. We also know that Ed Robertson (Bare Naked Ladies) is a friend of Geddy Lee and I am suspecting a collaboration effort between him, Geddy and Borg similar to JP Guns and Roses. Geddy always goes all in on projects/hobbies. A themed scifi pin focused on a world that has outlawed/lost music (2112 ish) would be very cool. I also suspect that Rush would want Hughe Syme on the art. He has done all of their albums and it would make total sense that he be involved on this project. What do you think of the pending next Stern !??

My hope for the song list….

Tom Sawyer
Limelight
Red Barchetta
YYZ
Subdivisions
New World Man
Distant Early Warning
Working Man
Spirit of the Radio
Freewill
Roll the Bones
Animate
Fly by night
Lavilla Strangiato
2112

If they do a concert vibe I'm out. Can't stand the GnR style. I don't want to see any concert footage at all. Keep it old school. Plenty of great Rush songs that have themes that would work with pinball. I know they are gonna use the popular favorites and thats a shame, the best rush for pinball often gets overlooked.

#6 11 months ago

A concert vibe like GNR would be a disappointment. I would pass if that is the case and order a Godzilla.

I agree. I think themeing after 2112 would be the best approach.

I just hope the opening of Spirit of Radio is what you hear when you hit the start button.

#9 11 months ago

This is the image we saw on the "leaked" picture.

Was definitely expecting a darker look to the graphics - should be interesting to see the final design.

I remember our high school office used to play this often when it was time for home room in the morning. It was awesomeness.

#14 11 months ago

Red barchetta mode with police chase multiball

Bytor/Snowdog battle modes

Search for Xanadu mode with Mad immortal man multiball.

2112 (you could theme a whole game with a dozen modes from this one song) Solar Federation/Priest battle mode.

There are so many songs that could translate to a mode with a logical journey to progress through.

Dryer drop targets. Wall of sound ramps. Spinning drum kit diverters. So many possibilities

I hope they represent Presto and Roll the Bones, too. That era doesn't get enough love.

I expect a beautifully themed Rush pinball jukebox but I hope it ends up being less jukebox and more pinball.

Im looking forward to the reveal, that's for sure.

#15 11 months ago

Natural Science, - please put this song in the game! That is all

#16 11 months ago
Quoted from finman2000:

Yeah that is a better fit!

#17 11 months ago

I hope The Bag is in this game too.

Hahaha.

If you know, you know.

#18 11 months ago

Given Geddy's odd sense of humor, there will probably be a rotisserie chicken toy and a bank of washers and dryers.

#19 11 months ago

YYZ drum solo pop bumper mode?

Great band, one of my favorites, but not so sure it works as a theme. Zeppelin is a great shooting game, but it's terribly-themed.

Arrrrghhhh I thought this was a thread announcing the new Rush pin and I got all excited, dammit you got me

#21 11 months ago

“Why does it happen, because it happens roll the bones”!!

Yes!!! Super excited!

Good list but think my Metallica Premium, that has all rush songs thanks to pinball browser, has an even better song list

Tom Sawyer, Limelight, Red Barchetta, Spirit of Radio, Freewill, Fly By Night, Beneath Between Behind, Farewell to Kings, Xanadu, Bastille Day, Natural Science, The Trees, and Closer to the Heart.

Yes!!! Super excited!

The rap portion of Roll the Bones would be so cool.

Hoping for Jerry Stiller to make an appearance also

I am with you, I hope Presto (truly one of their best and most unique albums) and Bones are not overlooked! The ginormous animatronic rabbits in a hat they used during the tour still stand out as some of the coolest stage props I've ever seen; hopefully some version makes it into the game, it would look great and provide a little flavor of the band's sense of humor (which I certainly hope comes through in the finished product).

#25 11 months ago

How many of you are in for an LE? I'm in and it will be my first. Hard to believe this is actually going to happen.

#26 11 months ago
Quoted from Thermionic:

Omg. Thank you for bringing that memory back to the front of my mind! Yes! That was awesome! I remember the stage crew pushing and pulling the big Ballon rabbits making them bounce around and Alex laughing at them doing it. Great memory from way long ago. Thanks dude.

#27 11 months ago

I am on list for an LE. I just hope I get one. This would be a bolted to the floor game for me.

#28 11 months ago

Got on an LE list 6 months ago - will be my first ever LE.

#29 11 months ago

I would assume that Geddy will be doing call outs. I just cannot imagine that he would not be involved. My hunch is that Eds voice will somehow also be in the game.

BTW -A Presto Rabbit in thep Hat would be an awesome Topper.
