We don't know at what angle the picture was taken, but I also thought they may have flipped the image, which is why I posted that turned image a few pages back. However, for the shadows, I believe it is a drawing and the shadows are angled to the drawing itself. Not an actual sculpt - at least the grey and red/yellow area. Purple may indeed be something else like a rail.

#1452 6 months ago
Quoted from Pin_Fandango:

the shadows do not make sense so that is not the natural orientation of the actual drawing, it might have been auto rotated by the gyroscope in the phone and then rotated again by editing.

The phone was rotated at 36 degrees clockwise when it was taken.

haha... I agree (?)

#1454 6 months ago

Even with that knowledge (you can get that from the jpg code??) you still need to know at what angle it was comparatively to the machine. It really doesn't help give us any more info.

I like this game though.

I still stand by my first 2 guesses: He-Man or Evil Dead/Army of Darkness. Probably completely wrong.

#1455 6 months ago
Quoted from benheck:

I will say this, it's not God damn f'ing Beetlejuice.
This isn't a misdirection. IT IS NOT BEETLEJUICE.

Ah HA!

Betelgeuse confirmed!

#1456 6 months ago

My sources tell me its Kosmic Khaos. Art is updated "dune" area of the planet.

Could it be Henry the Reds cloak?
AOD here we come! “Groovy”

I think David Van Es is supposed to be designing the next game

Not sure who is on code

#1460 6 months ago

Isn’t he an animator?

Can you imagine Bruce Campbell doing callouts? Pure gold.

Ha! I thought of this too. I seriously checked the banners and outfits in AoD after that photo dropped.

#1463 6 months ago

Actually..Hold my beer. Someone already mentioned this (and I've been looking)...but..give me a few.

So...I dunno, but upon close examination...I think we might have a winner. Those aren't stones, and that isn't purple. It's tire tread, and that purple area is the outside of the next row of tread discoloration/shadowed.

When will the next machine be announced? Are they waiting to send out the very last R&M first?

I hope you are right, and that it’s the entire Trilogy and not just Army of Darkness.

All this talk of castles made me think about Princess Bride. While that is not the next Spooky title, I’ll bet we’ve named the theme in this thread.

Spooky should give people what they most want - Beetlejuice or Scooby Doo. How about some more hints Ben?

Army of Darkness would be a killer pin.

Double barrel ball launcher. A spiked pit lower PF (or basement if doing trilogy) Lock balls on the 3 books in the graveyard. Topper of the steam punk Oldsmobile with the spinning blades.

Have a gag where the mech hand "crushes" the ball for the lock. Skeletons everywhere! A working windmill!

Ben sez not BJ, so I can relax, and my wallet can rest easy.

It seems like a no brainer, and so much you could do...just depends on how much money you want to throw at it.

#1472 6 months ago
Quoted from gonzo73:

A sculpt like Alice Cooper Castle, of the China town Underworld?

Okay so I build and design attractions for living. I'm just saying Alice Cooper the castles got painted this awful purple, and I'm seeing the same thing here. Don't like the color purple for a castle but whatever anyway if that is indeed a castle then what could the game be?

Universal Studios Monsters - Army of Darkness

I'm trying to pick a title that CHARLIE would DREAM OF DOING. If he's a horror nut like me then growing up he would have loved watching Universal Studios Monsters, Godzilla, all these things you grew up on. Something with a castle... a CULT CLASSIC Army of Darkness or Universal Studios Horror Monsters.

I'd buy either one in a second, but again I really think Spooky should have done another line of 'CULT CLASSICS' like Airplane, Ferris Day Off, Fast Times, Blues Brothers, etc. We'll see what happens.

In the end its about taking the company to the next level, and although I love Horror I don't think this line is what gets you to the next level. Friday the 13th has such a big cult following and has had video games made from the property. I think that would be bigger but i'm excited to see something HORROR! I should say Horror Comedy if its Army of Darkness.

On Ranker 'Army of Darkness' is rated as the second best CULT CLASSIC of all time behind Anchor Man. https://www.ranker.com/list/cult-movies-and-films/reference

It looks like tire tread but it is not an exact match, close, but different enough, and also similar enough. Also can be a boot.

Quoted from benheck:

benheck didn't you have this theme in the works a while ago? Or at least Evil Dead?

I couldn't give my money fast enough if the pin was anything around Evil Dead / Army of Darkness, or even Ash vs The Evil Dead show. All were fantastic, iconic, full of horror and great humor. Fantastic call outs and visuals. Honestly, the perfect pin for my tastes.

#1475 6 months ago

Will Bruce come out of retirement long enough to do callouts? Hopefully.

Yeah, as much as I love ACNC and have no desire to get rid of it (or Scared Stiff), they would be gone shortly after I locked in a spot for ED/AoD. There is no way I would miss out on owning that theme and it would be another one bolted to the floor.

#1477 6 months ago
Quoted from Zablon:

I know he's said he wouldn't play Ash anymore, but he's also recently voiced the character in mortal kombat video game, did he not? So I'd say the outlook is decent enough.

EDIT -- I think the MK11 thing was disproven a year ago, so it may be more difficult than I thought?

#1478 6 months ago

If Ben is talking about how cool an AoD would be, we know Spooky's next game is not going to be AoD.

Yes he has done animations for spooky but I think it was mentioned on a podcast he was designing the next game

#1480 6 months ago

I still say it seems odd they would go through the trouble to license the fang swag and license something completely different for a machine....

just sayin...

Quoted from gonzo73:

Believe it or not there is hardly a drop of blood shown in Halloween 1.
Mostly suspence.
It's not till part 2 in 1982, that things get red.
And Myer's only kills 5 that we know of in the film.
His Sister, tow truck driver, and Laurie's 3 friends.
Oh, and maybe a cat or raccoon.

I feel like a Halloween pin is gonna cover more than just part 1. And Myers is psychotic, he even kills a dog and eats its remains in part2, for fun - there will be blood.
If it is unique enough, It would be on my buy list. If not, It would probably fall to the "whim/trade" list. And it is my #1 favorite horror flick.

I WANT ONE!

#1484 6 months ago

Looking at that teaser pic....maybe they picked up on my idea to create a pin based on the legend of King Arthur. A world-famous unlicensed theme. Possibly focusing on the adventures of Merlin. Halloween would be my top choice, but no one has the balls to make it. Too dark, too brutal, too bloody.

So we're back to Monty Python and the Holy Grail?

#1488 6 months ago

What if Ben is authorized to troll the truth and is actually revealing the features of the AOD / Evil Dead game . yeah , i want Evil Dead most of all

#1489 6 months ago
Quoted from benheck:

Kind of like Munsters I wish somebody would just freaking make Beetlejuice already so it can not sell many copies and people will finally stop asking for it (kind of like Munsters)

....or it sells crazy like GB and these comments won't age well.

#1490 6 months ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

....or it sells crazy like GB and these comments won't age well.

Well since no one is making Beetlejuice, I think they will age fine.

#1491 6 months ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

....or it sells crazy like GB and these comments won't age well.

Yeah, I'm of the opinion that sales on Beetlejuice would be nothing like the Munsters....was anyone actually ASKING for Munsters? I have no idea why they would, other than thinking they could grasp at something Addams Family-esque...who knows.

But I think BJ would sell just fine.

#1492 6 months ago

It wasn't the theme that killed munsters..it was the gameplay.

#1493 6 months ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

....or it sells crazy like GB and these comments won't age well.

It’s probably somewhere in between.

Beetlejuice wasn’t Ghostbusters big, but it was a hit that spawned toys, a cartoon series, a recent musical, etc. Like saying the name three times is just as ingrained into pop culture subconscious as “don’t cross stream”

Munsters never escaped its era of a 60s show of a non-traditional family being just as relatable as any other family. (Thanks for solving racism Munsters!)

#1494 6 months ago
Quoted from Zablon:

I am not sure why people are missing this. The game sold so well initially that they pushed it from 500 to 600 LE's after it was announced. The biggest complaints has always around the code, the lack of theme integration, and such.

There's another Knights of the Round table-based movie coming out soon, but I seriously doubt it's involved.

Wouldn't be surprised if it was his pin that's after this next one. The one he's working on with CGC/Spooky.

I've been saying this forever. A KING ARTHUR pin, done right, would be awesome. Even if Deeproot wasn't a giant dumpster fire, I wouldn't want the Merlin's Arcade they're talking about because it seems too childish. I'd like to see an Arthurian pin that is at least somewhat true to the original stories, not some goofy Disney-esque thing.

#1498 6 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

The Green Knight. A remake of the Sean Connery movie, Sword of the Valiant.

For some reason the pic reminds me of The Flinstones?! Can’t say why though
