Quoted from KnockerPTSD:

Spooky,
Thank you for making Ultraman.
Please stick to a pattern of niche rather than going all in on horror. I was absolutely out on Halloween no matter how good it looked and I would feel the same about most, if not all, horror flicks. I was elated to see an Ultraman reveal and ordered one myself (my first Spooky game)
I mean no disrespect to the horror fans but I personally HATE the genre.
Give me Invincible (PLEASE!!!), Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy, Farscape, Anime, Kung Fu flicks, etc and I will continue to be excited by each upcoming Spooky release.
Thank you Spooky!!

Why do all of the anti-horror people feel the need to constantly bash the Halloween theme? I have yet to see any of the people in the Halloween threads bashing Ultraman. People have different tastes and there are at least as many people who liked the Halloween theme as R&M or Ultraman. If you don't like horror, there are plenty of other manufacturers making games for you.

Probably one of the parents that protested against Mortal Kombat when it was released.

Because even the old fogies haven't escaped the 'me me me it's all about me' apocalypse.

Speaking of which, have I told you about me lately?

Quoted from kvan99:

Are we going to see the game play footage anytime soon? I'm a genuinely interested buyer, but I need to see how it shoots first

Yeah a lot of people are anxiously awaiting Kvan! Don’t seem very prepared for this launch. A week later and haven’t gotten through the slot numbers for everybody.

Huge success brings its challenges!

Agreed. Time better spent getting their shit together on builds and allotments than game play footage for a pin that is probably sold out.

Besides, gameplay footage gives the naysayers ammunition to pick shit apart. Spooky deserves better.

Because a lot of people are just plain shitty.

Best just to ignore them.

At least they didn’t say “that’s a hard pass for me.”

Im hoping the topper has variable slashing speed!! Slowly but surely builds up, RGBs get redder and redder until, the deed is done...

My distro just confirmed my fang club membership, boy hate to miss the "n" in that.

Wonder how many folks will lose a machine from a distro without having the Fang Club membership.

#9262 3 months ago

I am not a big horror fan, but I hardly think of Halloween (1978) as a hardcore horror flick. I don’t think you need to be a horror buff to enjoy this movie or theme. I think that is what makes this theme so awesome!

PinballSTARs email clearly stated that after ordering, you needed to get the FANG memberships asap. I did, but i also wonder if others didnt. Hope they did.

They'll probably just tell those folks to go purchase a membership so they are good. Doubt anyone will give up a spot over $45 plus it will create extra work for the distro to refund a deposit.

Quoted from skink91:

I really do want to listen to something new that’s great… just firmly not convinced anything new of substance musically has come out in the last couple decades. Please let me know what it might be… I have tried and found it all to be shite.

Congrats, you're an old fogey now.

Just like every generation before you reached old fogey status, and complained about the kids and their music. It's utterly normal to hold up the culture—be it music or movies or anime or whatever else—of your teenage years as the pinnacle. It's what formed your tastes for the most part. There's a reason nostalgia is so powerful of a tool. It sells a lot of pinball machines!

I used to really champion the idea of original themes being something pinball needed. I've basically given up on the idea. It's clear that even the boutique makers like Spooky are better off with licenses. I might not like it, but you can't argue with the results.

I give Spooky a lot of credit for doing Rick and Morty, that wasn't a nostalgia play. And you know what? A lot of people here had never watched it, tried it because of the pin, and had a great time. Because being "new" isn't the same as being "shite".

Just remember, any year or era of music that you love had a ton of garbage come out then too. It's just all been forgotten about, tossed in history's dust bin. Only the stuff with staying power remains.

And in 20 years someone will look back on Demon Slayer the way you look back on Ninja Scroll.

The cycle continues.

It could also be possible he's just asking them to do other stuff as well because there ain't no way in bleeding hell that Stern or JJP would ever make something like Ultraman. The ONLY reason Godzilla will was a feeble attempt to kneecap Spooky.

I still have my first edition. Too bad the movie was garbage.

Agreed, such a letdown after reading the book.

#9270 3 months ago

This is very true considering Halloween is not actually a Horror film at all. It’s a slasher / suspense in the Italian Giallo style ,updated by Carpenter to appeal to US audiences.

I’m sure that’s partly why they have taken so long figuring out the slot positions. Gotta be a shit show when you throw in the ordering snafu and who should go where

Where did I bash at all? I said I personally hate horror movies. Im sure i have a long long list of cheesy movies i like that are not what you would call popular

#9274 3 months ago

Wow, there are some pissier than normal folk here today.
The point was that Spooky made a good call appealing to different tastes.
Sit back down.

True. The first Halloween is really all about the tension and suspense. Barely any deaths or gore. Just a slow buildup to the climax. Michael Myers doesn't even really kill any random innocent bystanders, just people associated with Laurie Strode.

FWIW, I didn't intend to single you out. It's been a bit much here and in the UM thread.

#9278 3 months ago

So I am putting together the Spooky Promotional Plastic Stand up...Seems there is a leftover piece that says Stay Spooky 2021. Does anyone know where this goes? Sorry I am not the best at figuring these things out lol

I think it's just that there are a lot of us horror fans that have been wishing for a true horror game for years. Finally there's a manufacturer that is doing one. I know I can get a little sensitive when I see any discouragement to Spooky for doing this because I want more horror games in the future.

C'mon man all the other manufacturers have been making superhero and kiddie themes for years. Plenty of other options out there!

There are 2 stand-ups. The big one and that small one. There should be a small cross section for that one too.

#9282 3 months ago

Oh okay, guess I am missing the cross section piece.

Possibly fell into the box. Perhaps check the packing materials.

#9284 3 months ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Do we think Spooky will release TNA 2.0 before announcing any other games?

TNA 2.0 seems like a great failsafe to keep the line moving. If there is ever a delay with getting approvals for the next licensed games start on a batch of TNA 2.0.

Yep. Totally acknowledged. Fogey and then some.

FWIW I think the music that came out in my teenage years (mid 80s) was utter horseshit for the most part. I listen to next to little of it today.

Quoted from Aurich:

I agree… but I want to know in the last 2 decades what is of the quality of Pink Floyd, Yes, Grateful Dead, Dire Straits, etc. Two pinsiders actually did respond with some artists that I checked out (thanks actually, because there was some very good stuff in there) but I don’t know… just still not hearing stuff that is blowing my mind.

#9288 3 months ago

I stated before I am not a fan of slasher films and was called a man child for liking and wanting a Scooby Doo pin and really disappointed it was not done and received a lot of heat.

I never bashed Halloween fans. I replied to the gentleman who called me a man child by saying people could think you were a psycho for loving slasher films. I actually think the pin looks great. My wife was really disappointed Scooby didn’t happen, but she really loves the Halloween pin.

She loved it so much she wanted me to order one. She wasn’t sure which model. I showed her pics of CE and BSE and had her watch the reveal trailer again and I also watched it. She and I felt the CE was the way to go. The topper, side armor, speaker grills, and powder coating color we felt went better with the cabinet art.

So put the deposit down at Nitro Pinball. Does Nitro verify with spooky that I have the Fang Club membership? And when do you think i will receive it? Nitro said maybe in 6 months best case scenario.

My wife and I are still nervous about it because no game play videos yet. But we agreed if my wife wants it now we better get it at retail. I don’t think it will be at retail on the secondary market.

I am getting more excited for it. Getting Guardians of the Galaxy pro from Cointaker hopefully this month or next to tied me over. I am still hoping Spooky does Scooby one day, but looking forward to seeing how Halloween flips and I think it will look amazing with my Elvira House of Horrors and Monster Bash Remake SE.

So getting my first Spooky pin.

#9289 3 months ago

Just noticed kciaccio guessed Halloween first page and chad guessed Ultraman shortly after. Insider alert?

#9290 3 months ago

I just wrote Joe at PinballStar a few minutes ago asking if I can switch from Bloodsucker Halloween to CE, and if I can remit the additional funds via PayPal.

Last minute decision. We’ll see if it’s approved. I’m fairly confident it won’t be a problem.

Oh no, someone's already asking where his game is.

#9294 3 months ago

Yep...for you newbies. It's best to just chill and find a hobby and not think about it or worry about it. Occasionally check the threads for who's getting their games and #'s, and just let it go. Don't fret. Just be patient. Don't freak if the date you have in your head isn't met. Especially if things get bad again. You'll get your game...eventually. Those at the back of the line, the hype will be long gone by the time you get yours as everyone will have moved on to the next new and shiny.

Pinball star sent out an email to me confirming my order and to not ask what machine number...ie dont email them with nonsense.....

#9300 3 months ago

Just idle curiosity question:

When the numbers are all finalized, will spooky publish the exact numerical breakdown of the 3 trim levels adding up to 1250 for Halloween?

I’d be interested to see how many got the CE vs. Bloodsucker.

I opted for CE after originally planning to just get the Bloodsucker.
