I would buy pretty much all of the above mentioned themes.
Other main stream horror/sci-fi titles I think could be cool:
Swamp Thing
Toxic Avenger
The Thing
Dawn of the dead
Shaun of the dead
The fifth element
Blade Runner
War of the worlds
They live

Pretty much anything horror, sci-fi or monster related.
Whatever it is, I’m in.
Let me know when to send a deposit.

Quoted from Zitt:

benheck 's Bible Adventures

As crazy friggin wired as that sounds, I’ll be buying one if they make it.

Quoted from Dr-pin:

If they get evil dead and campbell to do call outs. It would be so bloody awesome, also lots of great things in the movies usable in a pinball machine.

If it is Evil Dead I’m in 100%.
My wife would probably divorce me if I didn’t buy it.

All BS aside though, I’m pretty much down for whatever they have coming up. We have 3 Spooky at the moment and looking forward to adding a 4th.
Would still like to get a TNA if the right one presents itself as well.

I’m really looking forward to Spooky announcing whatever it is they are working on next.
With production of Rick and Morty nearing the finish line, should get interesting soon.

#156 7 months ago

I suspect it’s not going to be a re-release of TNA, at least not just yet.
On the last Spooky pinball podcast Bug and Charlie made the comment that they think people will be really surprised at what they are going to have to offer. Part of the conversation was about listening to customer feedback and improvements, but made me think maybe they have a really good theme/license or perhaps just a really good design in the pipeline.

I’m looking forward to whatever it is.
Assuming it’s going to be announced in the coming months when RNM if finishing up, it will probably be my only other NIB purchase this year as I blew my wad on GNR.

Just signed up for my 2021 Fang Club membership.

#273 6 months ago

Can someone post a link to the podcast?

#286 6 months ago

Whatever it is I would think we are going to hear something definitive sometime fairly soon.
Rick and Morty is nearing the end of production as people in the 700s are getting their build sheets.
I would think they would make an announcement before all the Rick and Morty are finished so they can go right into production of whatever’s next.

#329 6 months ago

As much as I really love all this speculation, I’m not 100% sold on any of them.
Don’t get me wrong, a lot of them sound awesome. They kept Rick and Morty a secret pretty well. I suspect this will be one of those “O my” moments when it’s finally announced.

#348 6 months ago
Quoted from onemilemore:

If it's legit either one of those my wife is gonna shit a brick with excitement. She was already hyped for SD - not sure she'd be able to believe Buffy.

Lol, I just showed that post to my wife.
She immediately said “TV series Buffy?, or Movie Buffy? It had better be TV Buffy”.
I personally do not think it’s Buffy, but that’s a really interesting concept.

Quoted from finnflash:

Man, you guys can take anything and turn it into Evil Dead.

To be fair, that’s kind of how it works in Evil Dead.

Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

Details! Does it have flippers?

Heard a rumor it has 4 legs.

#1697 4 months ago
Quoted from Beechwood:

Best selling Pin of all time... took place in a house!

Dirty pool, old man!

#1713 4 months ago
Quoted from punkin:

That's Attack From Mars, when you lock a ball behind the gate.

It’s a quote from Gomez Addams in the movie during the fencing scene.
It is in Addams when you sneak a ball bast the bookcase, similar to the “you cheat Dr. Jones” call out in Indiana Jones when you put a ball in the Idol lock without hitting the drop targets first.
The quote originates from Addams.

#1764 4 months ago

What if the next game is Ben Heck the pinball machine.
I’ll bet the call outs would be amazing.

#1768 4 months ago
Quoted from kermit24:

It would also try to convince everyone Bible Adventures and Duck Tales would be amazing.

It would probably also have a Deeproot bash toy.

#1774 4 months ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Ooohhh. Zipper flippers! YESSSSSS.

Thats a feature I would love to see brought back in some form.

Quoted from LTG:

She'd need more than one beer for a bigger perspective.
LTG : )

That’s why I always use airline bottles in my comparisons.

#2777 4 months ago
Quoted from benheck:

I still think somebody should make a Duck Tales pinball.

If someone was to go that route, why not just do Disney Afternoon?

#2951 4 months ago
Quoted from johnnyutah:

[quoted image][quoted image]

I’m guessing that’s not it, but in the same breath I would say that a Megadeath pin will probably come to fruition at some point in time.
If and when it does, it will join my music lineup.

Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

Is Alice Cooper worth picking up? I don’t like buying a game without playing it first. My wife loves AC and monster movies. I wish they would announce already what the next pin is. Hate to miss out on an AC if it’s worth it.

I really like it.
Hard as hell, but really great and very satisfying when you get a good game in.
If pinball was billiards, then ACNC would be snooker.
It’s really about control and trying to be precise with your shots.
Pisses you off sometimes, but can also be very rewarding.
If you want to come over sometime and check it out, let me know.

#3672 3 months ago

Anyone else thinking horseshoe around the drop target bank in the center?

#3841 3 months ago

I’m sitting at the airport in Barcelona waiting for my flight back home to Arizona.
I’m probably going to pay for internet access on the plane just so I can follow this if the release is actually today.

#3843 3 months ago
Quoted from manadams:

I'm working all night and sleeping through mid-day, they'll probably announce the game right after I hit the sack and it will be all sold out by the time I get up...doh!!!!

I don’t think it will go up for sale right when they an ounce it.
The announcement should be more of a reveal.
At least that’s how they did it last time, and the games went on sale at a future date.

#3949 3 months ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Disagree on this one. If you look at the "More Better video" you can clearly see ACNC on the line.
It is my understanding that they sold out of ALMOST all of these in the original run. They promised a max of 500 I think. They had a few spare parts left around and did a line of another 50 or so with what they had on hand to keep the line moving while they put together, tweak, and prepare to reveal their latest pin.
With that said, I am not an official source on any of this and am not affiliated with Spooky in any way (although I am an official member of their Fang club!).

That is not what they posted.
Spooky specifically said they have a handful of Alice Coopers that were allocated to a distributor that we’re never realized.
Yes they are new builds, in fact they even said that in their post that they are “on the line”.

Any speculation about these being made out of spare parts snd being machines outside the allocated production numbers is pure speculation.
I do not believe that to be true.

Quoted from jandrea95:

I have a gnat attention span, still hyped .
I’m looking forward to an August 13th release

To be fair, being that it’s Friday the 13th it’s quite possibly befitting.

#4244 3 months ago
Quoted from mrclean:

Although... In theory Charlie had on a Freddy fedora, a Jason hockey jersey, and luke well luke just had a T-Shirt on with Evil Dead 2... But what do you do for HALLOWEEN... you dress up which is what Charlie did.

Charlie almost always wears a fedora.

#4283 3 months ago

I feel like if some of you guys were in charge of a murder investigation a bunch on innocent people would be in jail.

#4288 3 months ago
Quoted from EalaDubhSidhe:

I'm hoping they've done something a bit more involving with the cellar holes on the left than just being three identical shots on one side. Some manner of power-based shot or secondary shooter where you have to get the ball into the right hole.

I was thinking it might be something more like the Pit Creature mode on Alice Cooper (which is awesome).
You basically shoot for the lighted shots to find out where he is bidding.
Either way, cant wait to see the release.

#4291 3 months ago
Quoted from Zablon:

So..here's a question that's been rattling around in my head since the person posted pics of what they thought the PF looked like.
Other than Funhouse (which is only a skill shot) are there others that have shooters on the left? Also, why isn't actual shooters on the left a thing? Right hand biased designers??

DE GNR has a shooter lane on both sides.
The left side is only for Slash’s Snake Pit though.

#4304 3 months ago

I’m going to try plunging my skills shots with my left hand for a bit and see how it goes.
I think I’ll call it “the stranger plunge”.

Wonder if it has any effect if I sit on my hand first until it falls asleep first?

#4493 3 months ago
Quoted from PaulCoff:

Spectrum…such a beautiful machine and an interesting concept. Kinda like Mastermind meets pinball in the future.
[quoted image][quoted image]
[quoted image]

Spectrum really doesn’t have a shooter lane. Ball ejects from the middle.

#4525 3 months ago
Quoted from curban:

Yeah, I liked the movie but am really surprised by the fandom asking for it to be a pin. I put it at about the same level of appeal as romancing the stone, Allan quartermain and the lost city of gold, and the golden child…and ain’t nobody asking for them to be pins!

Hey now….
The Golden Child is fucking hilarious.

#4574 3 months ago

Perfect theme for Spooky, congrats.

Haven’t told the wife yet, but I already know she is going to want one.

#5100 3 months ago
Quoted from Bryan_Kelly:

And why the fuck should I care what Cary and Kenada think.
Why the fuck should anyone care what Cary and Kenada think.
Why the fuck should we care what ANY podcaster thinks.
Have they played the game? Yeah, I didn't think so.
I have and dare I say, this is Spooky's best layout so far!
And there were two others playing with me and Chuck, and they thought the same thing.
Maybe I should start a podcast.

Key post right there.

#7046 3 months ago
Quoted from Mrawesome44:

95% of the pinball market didn't even know what Rick and Morty was until it was announced and look at how well that did. Ultraman is huge in the anime and the Japanese culture. Ultraman literally started the Super Sentai(Power Rangers) franchise. Spooky could sell thousands of games just in the Japanese market alone.

#7093 3 months ago
Quoted from Saltimbanco:

Why did Spooky pick Ultraman thou? I believe it to be somewhat better known in Canada, probably even more so on the Quebec side. But in the US?

It’s more of a personal thing for Charlie & family.
Making a theme that’s near and dear to their hearts.
I think it’s pretty cool what they are doing.

#7625 3 months ago

Got me a Halloween CE!!!!!!!

This will be our 5th Spooky pin.

#7814 3 months ago

I just doubled down and put a deposit on an Ultraman CE as well as a Halloween CE.
Fuck it, you only live once.

Wife is either going to slap me upside the head or want to blow me.
Crossing my fingers for the latter.

#8119 3 months ago

Told the wife we bought both, lol.

Quoted from dr_nybble:

He's got 44 machines, I think she's used to it by now.
And 0 "owned in the past", a man after my own heart.

Yep, key part of her first text is “our order”.
