Dredd should be a cheap licence but would make an awesome R rated pin, come on Spooky!

Would anyone here like to see this cult classic given the spooky treatment?

Folks, while its fun to throw out absurd titles, Remember, they still have to sell pins..
Road Warrior would a good fit for Spooky, given the darkness they gave RZ.

Agree 100%, let’s stop with the absurd titles now people.
You’re right this would be a good fit for Spooky, Fingers crossed!

Boobs in the first second? Gobble, gobble?
Is this a Horror B-Movie or a Porno?

#153 2 years ago

WOW! They made three of these.
Any pin made on this property would have to include all three movies.
Might be expensive to license the Turkey Trilogy, but I’d be worth it Haha

Quoted from Calfdemon:

I am actually loving this thread!! Doing searches of these movies revealed that the Toad Warrior movie you posted is actually movie #3 in the Frogtown trilogy which I did not know was a trilogy!! I posted Hell comes to Frogtown not knowing. Now I have to find Return to Frogtown and finally watch Toad Warrior which has Jill Kelly in it (not that I know who THAT is.. ).

This thread has me laughing everyday.
I don’t know what’s more awesome the fact that they made a Frogtown trilogy or that they made 5 Leprechauns!
For me it’s a toss up between Leprechaun in space and Leprechaun in the hood for best title.

Quoted from captainadam_21:

They actually only made 2. There is no thankskilling 2. And 1 is much better than the 3rd.

Strange but true, I wonder why they skipped over the second?
There’s a poster for it and everything.
It was set in space could have been crazy awesome!
“In space no one can hear you baste”
I mean come on, best movie tag line ever!

I’d be straight in on Tucker & Dale, the Mrs and me both love that movie.
So many great themes out there for Spooky.
These are just a few that are on our own personal wish list:
1. Little Shop Of Horrors
2. Beetlejuice
3. The Lost Boys
4. Monster Squad
5. Fright Night
6. Evil Dead
7. Big Trouble In Little China
8. Who Framed Roger Rabbit

#242 1 year ago
Quoted from LTG:

Vampires by John Carpenter. Now we're talking freaking cool !
LTG : )

I think this would be very cool, I’ve always loved the movie.
Not Carpenters best, but still great! Consider the competition, The Thing, Big Trouble in Little China, Escape From New York, Assault on Precinct 13, Halloween.
JC deserves a Pin, Let’s start a petition!

Happy to say that I have just joined the Spooky Fang Club. I’m super excited for their next release.
I think there’s so many great themes for them out there, tons of untapped cult movies and TV shows, I can’t wait to see what it is!
Since Rick & Morty I think the only way is up for them, I haven’t played an R&M yet and it isn’t a theme for me but the game looks great, shots, callouts, light show, theme integration look amazing.
In my opinion the only thing it seems to be lacking is that one big interactive toy.
Imagine If they were to do Little Shop Of Horrors with an animated ball eating Audrey 2 plant, Evil Dead with a rotating chainsaw conveyer belt lock. or Beetlejuice with a 3 ball grave ball lock...Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice! Beetlejuice!
Whatever it is, even if it’s something B movieish like The Blob or Attack Of The 50 Foot Woman, I’m positive it’s going to be a winner. Look how popular Sterns Elvira HOH has been.
Come on Charlie and team, I’m behind you all the way! and if I like the theme I’m in on an early pre order.
Peace and love to all my fanger brothers and sisters out there!

#282 1 year ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

No way Spooky is doing Scooby-Doo. Back when we were guessing Rick and Morty the internal name was Scott Danesi Haunted House Party, or SDHHP. This turned into the rumor of Scooby-Doo Haunted House Party... which is where I think this is coming from...

I hope you’re right, I think Scooby would be fun but my Great Dane who was called Scooby died 18 months ago and it’d be too upsetting for us to buy a Scooby Doo pin
I’m crossing my fingers for Little Shop Of Horrors or Beetlejuice

#354 1 year ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

When is it supposed to be announced?


#368 1 year ago
Quoted from BallyKISS1978:

That’s a killer looking cabinet. I joined fang club to get early access to order if it’s SD.

I joined the fang club a week ago hoping the new pin was gonna be Little Shop Of Horrors, Beetlejuice or Evil Dead.
If it is Scooby Doo I’m on the fence, it’s not a dream theme for me, but I think Spooky could hit a home run with it and it could be a load of fun.
Does anyone know how it works in the fang club, I know you get early pre order opportunity, but are you still blind buying or do you get to see the game mechanics, flow, art etc?

#374 1 year ago
Quoted from Zablon:

When they did r&m there was video of the game only a day or so prior to preorders opening up...it really was a blink and miss it deal. Hoping they do it a bit differently this go around.

Thanks Zablon.
If that’s how it’s done then I‘d better be on red alert! No more blinking for me Haha

#379 1 year ago
Quoted from fnord:

I certainly hope it's as great of a success for them as R&M.

Same here.
Even if the next theme is something I’m likely to pass on, I wish them every success. I will continue to support them in the hopes that one day they will land on one of my dream themes.

#425 1 year ago

Kaneda says not Scooby Doo now, he said he’s hearing it’s a horror theme.
I like his podcast but personally I think this time he hasn’t got a Scooby Doo (Clue) what it is, he’s just grabbing at straws!
Fingers crossed for Little Shop Of Horrors, Evil Dead or Beetlejuice.

#439 1 year ago
Quoted from hank527:

It’s Big Trouble in Little China. Mark my words
And Ben Heck’s game is Beetlejuice.

Ouch! If this is true it’s gonna be an expensive couple of years for me.
Both must own dream themes in my household.

#442 1 year ago
Quoted from Kkoss24:

How does spooky roll out theyre titles ? Meaning if your in the fang club do you know the title and have a couple pictures of the new pin when your in the 2 week window to pre order ?

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?

#446 1 year ago

Thanks for the answer, I can swing $1000 - $1500 if it’s a must have theme for me.

#452 1 year ago
Quoted from bob_e:

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

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.

#454 1 year ago
Quoted from dnapac:

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.

#480 1 year ago

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

Didn't anyone else catch the real clues?
It's Beetlejuice, like I have been saying for a year.

What were the real clues? God I hope you’re right!
I’m crossing everything hoping this next release is beetlejuice and not the Ben Heck CGC one that’s coming after.
If it’s Beetlejuice next I’m in straight away without question.

#643 1 year ago
Quoted from Beechwood:

Did they say more better, 3 times?

Nice catch! Nice catch! Nice catch!

#683 1 year ago

Either one of these and June is gonna be an expensive month for me.

Quoted from fnord:

Halloween w/ Ken Taylor art would be sick[quoted image]

Wow that is gorgeous artwork.
I’d prefer Beetlejuice, Evil Dead/AOD, Little Shop Of Horrors, something with a horror/comedy vibe but Halloween could be cool.

#737 1 year ago

Third conjuring coming out at the beginning of June and the game is due to be announced in June? Doubtful but you never know!

Getting excited now, I want me some Egg Shens 6 demon bag, 6 ball Multiball.

Hit the two ball captive ball stack “Wolfman’s got nards” Haha
I’d love a Monster squad pin.

#813 1 year ago

I know all the goodies were Lugosi Dracula stuff but I’m not reading too much into that.
Here’s my list of top hopefuls
1. Beetlejuice
2. Big Trouble In Little China
3. Little Shop Of Horrors
4. Evil Dead/AOD/Ash vs Evil Dead
5. Monster Squad
6. The Lost Boys
7. Tucker & Dale vs Evil
8. Cabin In The Woods
9. The Blues Brothers
10. Who Framed Roger Rabbit
11. Fright Night
12. An American Werewolf In London
13. The Thing
14. Halloween
15. Zombieland
16. Slither

I’m sure it’ll end up being something none of us expected and it’ll be fangtastic!

#815 1 year ago

How does it work with Spooky’s theme announcement. Do they announce the theme a couple of weeks before order banks open and drop a little video teaser?
I’m trying to figure out how much time I’ll have to contact a distributor and put my name down if it’s a dream theme.

#817 1 year ago
Quoted from Oaken:

For R&M I think whisper was around Dec 1st, trailer announcement was around Dec 6th and sales officially opened on Dec 16 or thereabouts.

That’s great! Thanks for the reply.
Just crossing my fingers now for a winning theme.

#826 1 year ago
Quoted from Pin_Fandango:

I dont know any of those shows...

I’m glad I’m not the only one, I thought I was just old and out of touch Haha

#877 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

I'd take a Spooky Goonies over a Beetlejuice any day.
[quoted image]
[quoted image]

Me too, Goonies is my number one dream theme but I thought Deeproot had the license?

#879 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

No idea if they still have it. If we're lucky there was a time limit and they lost it.

I bloody hope so, Spooky or JJP are the only two that I think would even attempt to do it justice.

#901 1 year ago
Quoted from benheck:

Ah so the game is "stacked" huh? I can see why he'd give that as a clue

You’ve let the cat out of the bag now Ben!

Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

Goonies confirmed!

Haha belly laughs over here. I want Chunk and the gang to have their own pinball. Fingers crossed one day...”Goonies Never Say Die”

#1003 1 year ago
Quoted from NC_Pin:

Goonies has broad appeal. It is like “Princess Bride” almost every kid has seen by the time they are 13.

I think lots of people have a connection to Goonies from their childhood. Growing up I watched that film loads and I still watch it once a year now. It’s a No1 dream theme for me and I think a lot of people.
Different people make different connections to different things growing up. Lots of people love Back to the future, for me it’s just Meh! I never was really into it growing up and would gravitate towards Goonies, Bit Trouble In Little China, Beetlejuice, Monster Squad, Little Shop Of Horrors, Who Framed Roger Rabbit, Batman, Dick Tracy.
Goonies to me seems like a no brainier, it’s the perfect theme for pinball, pirates, booby traps, hilarious call outs, great 80’s soundtrack. I LIVE IN HOPE!

#1006 1 year ago
Quoted from guitarded:

Goonies made an impact? On whom?
I can't imagine anyone (but Deeproot?) thinking that was a viable Pinball Theme. I don't know that it would outsell Food Truck.

On whom? You’re joking right?
How about half of the 80’s!
That movie is beloved by practically everyone I know and grew up with.
It’s a cult classic!

#1009 1 year ago
Quoted from guitarded:

I was in the age group you talk about when that movie was released. Shit, I sat through it in a theatre for a friend's 14th BDay party, maybe?
I don't know a single person who has ever mentioned it again, since.
Hell. Adventures in Babysitting gets mentioned and not the Goonies.
I just don't see it as a viable option at all.

I was born in 81 so I was only 4 when it came out, too young to watch it at the cinema but wore the VHS tape out growing up. My Mrs and friends most of them born in 80/81 same thing!
Maybe the sweet spot is born in the 80’s, if you were born in the 70’s and a teenager at the time of its release maybe you’d outgrown it already at that point.

#1036 1 year ago
Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

I’ve kind of been hoping that Stern would do The Simpsons: treehouse of horror as a TSPP vault. But I would pumped if Spooky did it instead, PERFECT PERFECT THEME.

[quoted image]

This is a great shout!
Great theme for Spooky and a definite home run. Possibilities are endless as far as Toys, Callouts, clips, light show go.
I’d be in on one for sure.

#1047 1 year ago

Let’s bury this one and talk pinball chaps.
What theme do you want the most?
And what toy/mech would you like to see in it?
Open to all, I’m interested to hear everyone’s ideas and possibly steal them if I ever win the Lotto and start up my own boutique company like Spooky Haha

#1122 1 year ago

If it’s Goonies, Beetlejuice, Big Trouble In Little China or Evil Dead, 1000 isn’t going to be nowhere near enough.
I think the demand would be high enough to sell 3x that.
I know Kaneda says 1000 but it’s just based on rumour not fact. Fact is they could have sold 3 or 4x the 750 RM they made.
I’m hopeful that with their new factory and line, they’ll be upping the production on this next game to at least 1500, twice that of RM.

#1136 1 year ago
Quoted from Capn12:

People want Beetlejuice, but people don't want Stern Beetlejuice, so there is that...

You beat me too it. It’s a dream theme for me but a guaranteed missed opportunity in sterns hands.
It’s the perfect theme for Spooky who would give it the love and magic it deserves.

#1157 1 year ago
Quoted from awassig:

OMG Kill me now!!!! Spooky starts doing stuff like this it will be a major disappointment. Stay with the Horror and spooky themes.

Agreed, Scooby Doo is one thing but Duck Tales? No thanks!

#1166 1 year ago

Spooky definitely smashed it with R&M, if outside the box, young themes are the secret formula, how about these?

Quoted from TreyBo69:Idk if it's been said, but Little Shop of Horrors would be fun. Feed balls to a singing and dancing plant monster. Maybe have it rotate to show multiple states as Audrey gets bigger over time.
They are/were remaking the movie before covid.

Music great, call outs hilarious.
Such a great fit for Spooky. Instant buy for me.

#1218 1 year ago

I just had a thought, sure I’m not the first to mention it.
Spooky pinball founder and owner = Charlie Emery, nickname for Charlie = Chuck.
Anyone thinking what I’m thinking?

#1235 1 year ago

It’s easy to say 750 is the magic number when you was one of the 750. I wonder how many of you would be singing that same tune if you’d missed out.
Fingers crossed I’ll be saying 1000 is the magic number to some poor Pinsider who missed out in a couple of weeks when I’ve got an order in for my dream theme Haha

#1240 1 year ago
Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Spooky made it easy enough that even I got one. It was and is my only NIB pinball purchase.

Good to know. I’ll make sure I’m not late to the party. I’d hate to miss out if it is one of my dream themes.

#1294 1 year ago
Quoted from dnapac:

Didn’t Kaneda also say it was Scooby Doo? Also, would he really betray Charlie/Spooky and make the announcement...when it should be Spooky’s thunder?

Exactly, I think he says things to get ratings he’s gotta get people to tune in some how. Also he might have some well placed sources but I think some of them treat him like a bit of a mushroom, they feed him crap and keep him in the dark. I’m not dissing him I like his show and the way he tells it like it is I’m just saying don’t believe everything he feeds us.
I was hoping for something more Horror/Comedy over straight up Horror but Halloween could be great and I’m sure they’ll smash it, not sure if I’ll be going in on it though. More likely I’ll save my money and wait for Spooky to do Beetlejuice, Evil Dead or something of that Ilk.
Nevertheless if it is then good luck Spooky and all the best hope you sell out day 1 again.

Quoted from thirdedition:

She’s not the only one. Little Shop, Bugsy Malone and Blues Brothers are the only three musicals that would be instant buys for us.
Honestly I know Rocky Horror is universally loved but neither of us can stand it.

#1427 1 year 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.
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)

Well you know what they say about opinions Ben, they’re like A-holes, everyone’s got one!
I tell you this though, It would sell a crap load more than Duck Tales would.

Quoted from benheck:

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!

Quoted from PinMonk:The rheumatoid arthritis dictated the title. It just wasn't talked about a lot back then. She suffered in silence.

I heard her real name was She-Man but unfortunately we weren’t as enlightened in the 80’s so she changed her name to She-Ra and did the old tuck and tape!

#1826 1 year ago
Quoted from benheck:

I will say, 100%, no mis-direction that it IS NOT SCOOBY-DOO
Would make a great pin theme though!

So no Beetlejuice, No Scooby Doo. Gotcha!
My monies on Little Shop Of Horrors or Tucker & Dale vs Evil, both great themes for spooky, comedy horror is the way to go.

#1905 1 year ago
Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

‘Return of the living dead’ would be incredible. Awesome sound track, great cast w/ great callouts, just enough camp to keep it fun and creepy enough for true horror fans. That’s a winner in my book. That and ‘Army of Darkness’ of coarse! ‘Night of the demons’ would be perfect too. But it’s a lesser known classic unfortunately.
[quoted image]

Have to have Trash getting her kit off in the graveyard mode, each shot and she loses another item of clothing! Shwing!!!

I’d love to see something like the Elvis upper playfield, but as a train station
Shoot a turnstile spinner to go up the ramp to the station, use an upper flipper to shoot into a train door opening and closing. Load up the gang and it dispenses balls, maybe like the Ghostbusters ramp that dips under the playfield.
A train map could show the progress with branching difficulty paths.

Pop bumpers could be sculpted like 3 glass bottles “Warriors come out to play” Haha
Also gotta have the Coney Island Ferris wheel in there too.

#2089 1 year ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Crazy part is, if Stern hasn't thought of it already and Spooky really isn't doing SD next, reskinning Elvira as Scooby Doo is an easy fit and would sell way better than Elvira. The work is already mostly done. Nordman's design is solid and sir_tankalot delivered a great game, as usual. Throw on 3 art packages, reskin the code and viola! new, very in-demand game.
Could be one of Stern's top sellers.

I can see stern doing exactly this but with Harry Potter, the license would be an expensive one to acquire so would be a cost save to re-skin Elvira. The haunted house is perfect for Hogwarts, dead head crypt = Chamber of Secrets. Give it the old KA-POW re-do like Dark Knight/BM66.
It would be a massive hit for them.

#2160 1 year ago
Quoted from mrclean:

It's "E3" which includes Evil Dead, Evil Dead II, & Army of Darkness... & Since the new film is out soon it's likely to be called:

It would be a nightmare. The dagger and the book even require a special license from Rob Talpert.
Easiest one to do would be 2, but... Eh. You're limited to just a house and the woods and nobody even gets assaulted by a tree in that one.
AoD is my vote. Best one liners, many locations (helps rules) and the most visually interesting. Also skeletons.
Obviously ED is not their next title but you've certainly gotten their attention.

Ben Heck just blew away all our hopes and dreams with a Boomstick! RIP Evil Dead.

For me personally maybe Archer or Simpson’s Treehouse of Horrors, I think someone mentioned that on here already and I thought it would be a great idea, perfect for Spooky.

Such a perfect fit for Spooky, instant buy for my household.
Soundtrack brilliant, callouts from Audrey 2 and the Dentist would be hilarious, toys & art possibilities endless...No brainer!
I could see it having a ball eating plant centrepiece, open mouth with teeth drop targets for Dentist mode, and Mushnik’s flower shop up in the corner, green powder coated rails to make them look like plant tentacles.
It would be one sexy “green mean mother from outta space” Haha

#2655 1 year ago

Thinking outside the box here a little but
Charlie mentioned Svengoolie the 1970’s horror movie host when talking about the Bela Lugosi stand up in the spooky fang club give away pack.
Stern just had a big hit with Elvira the 1980’s horror movie host.
How about 2018 horror movie host Joe Bob Briggs and the last drive-In?
Stacked and loaded, well it would be loaded with horror movies.
1. Phantasm
2. Hellraiser

#2826 1 year ago
Quoted from TreyBo69:

Also while we’re just listing themes for the boredom of it
I recently binged the Harley Quinn cartoon and the whole time watching it I though it would be a great theme. Very funny adult show, good art direction, exceptional voice cast, could translate well to a game, lots of obscure DC jokes for comic book nerds, and checks a lot of boxes in representation that pins don’t normal do (female leads, its super feminist, and has had GLAAD nominations).
Make the pin or don’t, but if you have HBO Max I highly suggest giving the show a go.
Maybe I just want to hear Ron Funches do call outs for a game.

I’m on it!
Been meaning to give it a watch, Batman the original animated series is one of my all time favourites.

#2983 1 year ago
Quoted from mpdpvdpin:

Do you guys have boomers hornyposting in
Essex? Stateside hornyposts typically will involve saying something quasi embarrassing, unnecessarily horny and often displays some kind of odd sexual immaturity. For example, if you had included saying something like “This movie is chock full of yummy boobies, juggies are for daddy as well as baby” then...I would totally screenshot it. Otherwise it’s just a theme suggestion. Give it a shot!

Ok here goes...
For everyone who appreciates the student body, this movie is a monkey spanking good time!
Watch as the psycho killer stalks and impales sexy cheerleaders with his 10 inches of steel.
All he wants is head...doesn’t matter if it’s decapitated.
Packed with juggies for hours of tuggies, get ready to sling some yogurt!

What’s the verdict?
I had to dial up the horny to 100 but wasn’t bad for a first attempt I thought Haha

#3685 1 year ago
Quoted from proco:

Well ok, here you go.
Notes and observations:
- I only put the upper playfield in the cut out area where I can see it, but to make sense it should go all the way to the right side and top right corner.
- On every major shot, there seeesm to be a small round insert, some arrow and then this weird cross insert.
- There seems to be an above-surface opto on the right behind the drop target.
- The only thing that makes sense for me on the center shot is a ramp, because otherwise the ball would have nowhere to go.
- The lights in front of the center drop target bank looks like a face ( o_o )
The placement of most posts and metal guides is just speculation because there aren't any visible holes. Also I didn't bother with applying the correct textures to all the components.
[quoted image]

HOLY CRAP! I think it is actually A Nightmare On Elm Street.
I’m thinking the five long inserts could correspond to the first 5 A Nightmare On Elm Street Movies part 1 to 5.
They are the only ones named ANOES after that it’s Freddy’s Dead the final Nightmare, Wes Craven’s A New Nightmare, Freddy Vs Jason and the 2010 remake.
Looks like you work your way up through the movies part 1 to 5.

#3732 1 year ago
Quoted from BallyKISS1978:Not a chance. Your premise can work with any movie that has sequels. Be prepared to be disappointed. The teaser art work is clearly NOT a Nightmare On Elm Street.

I’m not even a big ANOES fan, certainly not a dream theme for me but I think it could be kinda cool.

Totally Epic! The atmosphere and sense of paranoia and isolation in that movie are incredible.
Could you imagine the Petrie dish scene playing out on a pinball playfield? Hitting different shots as Mac buries the hot needle into blood samples until you get to Palmer and the blood jumps up and screeches and Palmer starts to shake whilst the others all crap their shorts in terror.
It would be the most tense, scary wtf mode in all of pinball...ever!
