Quoted from oneballjab:

Good question! Also do any of you know how the payment is done, is it a deposit and then remaining balance when your machine is ready to ship or 100% money up front?

My TNA was a $1000 deposit, balance due when they were to begin production.

Thanks!
Did they want the balance when they began production of your specific machine or just when then began producing games in general?
I have to move my Hobbit on before I can buy.

I believe they need full payment when yours hits the line...not before.

Phew! That’s ok then.
Man I hope it’s a theme I like.

#455 7 months ago

I’m not even remotely in the market for ever buying a NIB game.. but Big Trouble in Little China or Beetlejuice both have the potential for all time theme integration if someone actually made them.

Of the theme's mentioned here, Scooby Doo would still be of most interest. I just think it translates well for pinball rules; clues, cases, characters, Scooby Snacks, etc. My next choice would be a generic Universal Monsters. I'm thinking similar to Monster Bash, but dropping the "music" theme. Collect your monsters and scare villagers. Beetlejuice could be okay, though it's a bit like Back To The Future, in that the actual plot of the movie is a bit weird. What is your actual goal in that game? I think you've be better just using the world of Beetlejuice and creating your own storyline. It sounds like whatever it is, we'll know soon.

#457 7 months ago

So has Scooby Doo been debunked? Cardy said it was when he replied to my comment on YouTube.

#458 7 months ago

Besides hoping for a WOOLY that'll never happen, I think Nightmare Before Christmas would be a great family friendly Spooky theme

Hell yeah it would. Wish June would just get here.

#460 7 months ago

I’m hoping it’s Friday the 13th or even Night of the Living Dead. Beetlejuice is a great theme, but I don’t think it quite makes the cut as a Spooky theme. With that being said, whatever it is will definitely sell out.

#461 7 months ago

Big Trouble is my No 1 Dream theme, custom Kurt Russell callouts!? That would be a blast.

Still hoping this happens.

#462 7 months ago

Got my Fang Club membership just in case the next game is a must own. Seems like a win either way. Ive spent 45 dollars on worse things.

I'd buy both.

#464 7 months ago

Me too.

#465 7 months ago

I have a feeling whatever theme it is the “Big 2” will need to make room .Spooky Pinball is a incredible story with a team that’s incredibly focused .I’ve only had the pleasure of flipping TNA and RZ but anyone can see the progress they’ve made each step .They’re not expanding because they “think” they need to they are because they “know”.

#466 7 months ago

One would think the next Spooky game has something to do with Lugosi due to the Fang Club stuff?

#467 7 months ago

If you saw Charlie's hat on a Facebook post it said Night Of the Living Dead on it.

#468 7 months ago

Big Trouble in Little China or Beetlejuice, I’m in!

So, it seems like the three most likely themes for the next Spooky are Scooby Doo, Evil Dead: Army of Darkness and Friday the 13th. If they end up making Army of Darkness I will fully s#it all of my pants. That’s my number one dream theme. If you’ve not seen this movie, drop everything. It’s perfect, hilarious and an incredible theme for pinball.

I would also lose my shit. Evil Dead in general is good, but Army of Darkness specifically is just so magical with its humour. Would be great in pinball form.

An Army if Darkness pin would be very cool. I only have 4 backlit poster frames in my game room so I ocassionally rotate what posters go in them. This one however never gets rotated out because its just too awesome. Took me a long time to find an authentic double sided version.

#472 7 months ago

I would really enjoy just a generic Evil Dead that encompasses 2 and 3 (since 1 is basically redone in 2). So many callouts.

#473 7 months ago

Beetlejuice / Big Trouble in Little China, I would buy both

#474 7 months ago

Either this next release or the one after is Beetlejuice.

Not a rumor. Not a guess.

Facts.

Just look at Christopher Franchi's artwork from a few years ago... Beautiful!

Quoted from PaulCoff:

You could be onto something. Didn't Charlie comment in an earlier podcast that it was a theme that had been beloved for generations, or something like that? I really like the Dracula theme, but it's been used a few times already in pinball.

Quoted from docquest:

I still have the original mini poster that the theater was handing out with tickets when I went to see the premier of AoD! It's also framed in my gameroom. I have an original full size Evil Dead 2 theatrical poster, too. I got that one off of a dealer in the mid-90s.

This means nothing. Franchi does art as a sort of "if you build it, they will come". He wasn't paid to do that backglass, he did it in hopes someone would make a beetlejuice pinball (same thing with his 1984 wonder woman backglass). Now he HAS hinted that he's been doing art jobs for both kaminkow and CGC, but he hasn't said what themes those were.

#477 7 months ago
Quoted from Beechwood:

Christopher Franchi's artwork

Insight into that artwork from an interview he did with slap save podcast.

That artwork is from when Franchi was contracted by a “ boutique” company to create the art and pitch the IP to stern, where it was apparently received with an overwhelming ”meh” from all teams and subsequently turned down by Gomez.

The Ip had already been fully cleared through Warner brothers, but he commented on the situation saying:

“ because I own the artwork but I don’t own the properties, they are basically going to go nowhere.”

Though he did post this afterwards.. which leaves some room for hope.

Quoted from toyotaboy:

It appears he was contracted to make that artwork, which would usually indicate he was paid to make it… though I’m sure there could be some sort of wretched contract deal where you only get paid if the idea sells. But, coming from my 20 years experience as a freelance illustrator/ designer, that’s highly unlikely.

“Slap Save Pinball Podcast 24, he had more recently been contracted by a “boutique” company to design artwork for both a Beetlejuice and Superman ’78 pinball machine, with view to them being presented to Stern as part of a proposal for new games. However, the proposals didn’t hit the mark with Stern’s production teams, so unfortunately according to Franchi, they “… will not end up on pinball machines ever, probably!”

I was not saying "Beetlejuice is happening" because he made artwork for it. It is just convenient he has already made some.

Kanada was wrong on Scooby Doo.

I am not wrong on this.

Either way, it will be fun to see it play out in the months to come!

#480 7 months ago

Thinking outside the box theme wise, I think theses two would make for fun machines.

How are you so certain that Spooky will make Beetlejuice? I’d definitely be pumped for it.

Would also love a Hammer horror Dracula pin.
Starring Christopher Lee.

Evil Dead would be great. The cabin, the living forest, dancing dead girlfriend, grandma in the cellar, finding the lost pages of the Necronomicon, broken bridge as a ramp, Evil Ash, a severed hand, dancing furniture, the chainsaw, and Brice Campbell doing call outs.

Army of darkness ? Well, ok

Remember seeing army of the dead at the theater. In Stanton ca. The theater is there but my friends comics store - altered images and also golfland (great pins). Both gone. But the memory remains in a boomstick.

I will pay whatever they want for Evil Dead / Army of Darkness. I will send Spooky a blank check and/or my first born.

And me.

#492 7 months ago

Well shit..I'm already out priced...I don't have any kids.

#493 7 months ago

I bet they announce right after Sterns announcement, which should happen soon.

#494 7 months ago

I still hope it's not Evil Dead or Beetlejuice yet. I need some time to figure out what game I need to move.

#495 7 months ago
Quoted from Zablon:

Just send an iou for the first born. That’s what I’m doing to get an evil dead pin

I will do the same. Not sure how I will get your first born to send to them, but I can figure out the blank check part at least!

I also will have to move a pin or 2 of Evil Dead/Army of Darkness is announced!

#497 7 months ago

Me thinking you are all NUTS! Blank checks first born isn't the price of these games outrageous enough without giving the manufacturer confidence you like it without the lube .

Charlie from Spooky Pinball. Thought that would been obvious since we are in a Spooky Pinball thread.
