    Quoted from Extraballz:

    I hope the Spooky/ Ben Heck/ CGC collaboration has a Spooky playfield. Or at least that CGC gets the special sauce recipe from Spooky.

    Seems like the new standard in pinball playfields that RaM demonstrates, could simply be a product steming from one of the most experienced companies out there for playfield quality... "Churchill Cabinet Company" ... associated with CGC, and Spooky. ? ...... Seems like the "playfield sauce" could be flowing in the other direction?

    Franchi is aparently preparing a heap of "concept" Jaws translites and bringing them to TPF, talked about in the recent SAPS episode....

    Some of the themes being speculated about don't seem all that conducive to lots of "mech" with ball/player interaction. RHPS is a totally lame theme to me, and what are the mechs? . Jaws could certainly have boats and sharks and stuff that could change and interact with the ball.

    What are the big themes that play into alot of playfield mechanical interaction?

    Well, I just blew my pinball wad on ACNC and R&M...I’m so impressed. I can’t wait for what’s to come. I’m ready to sell some good pins.

    BTTF: Hover board. Delorean. Train. F'ing time travel..

    Army of Darkness: Chainsaw. Boomstick. Medieval car/windmill battlewagon.

    Jaws would be sweet. I'd take a properly done Alien too

    #554 4 months ago

    Seems to be three there that can kinda fit into the brief:

    BTTF
    Jaws
    Alien(s)

    ....
    ....
    ????

    If BTTF what will be the situation with likeness of MJF? . Theme has great potential for an interactive and theme integrated playfield layout and features. Jaws too; sinking ships, emerging sharks, put the bomb barrel in the sharks mouth etc.

    If Alien they would surely go with the most iconic movie, the Sequel, and as yet unused title... AlienS (for a New version). Would/could they go still with an Alien eating the ball? .... what could be better original toy/playfield ideas for Alien?

    Some other suggestions could be great titles for pinball: Gremlins or He-Man ... but are they Big Popular licences with relatively broad appeal or recognition?. Gremlins perhaps more than He-Man and Masters of the Universe.

    Are these more recognised than something like Inspector Gadget? . The problem with Inspector Gadget is every man and his dog is going to *Expect there to be a car that transforms between sportscar/police car/submarine/plane AND have a Gadget doll on the playfield out of which a spinning "Gadget Copter" emerges!

    IG is a kids theme though like Scooby Doo ... not a pinball theme that is really going to sell because of theme....

    Masters of the Universe could be a fantastic looking game if it is done well. Would need Casle of Greyskull on the playfield (to enter and interact with), plenty of Good callouts, and She-Ra featuring alongside, as essentials. Could have truly fantastic art!

    You can make pins happen by typing a theme enough times on Pinside. Iron Maiden being a prime example.

    If BTTF or Jaws haven't happened by now they're not going to.

    So you're saying Scooby Doo and/or Beetlejuice have a chance....

    I would expect TPF 18 days is when this teaser could be announced, in addition to other news / reveals from various other vendors.

    #565 4 months ago

    12 pages in 7 days? Thankfully I just skipped from 1 to 12 and missed nothing but the memes... Quick scroll through the thread pictures... Got it. The usual suspects. (And no, I am not suggesting that kick-ass movie for a theme.) Still waiting on a Better Off Dead machine...

    I doubt we will hear anything on this at TPF. Maybe the next remake, CC. We'll probably be lucky to hear anything by Chicago Expo.

    That would be awesome...."I want my $2..." on the first coin drop!!

    I'm really curious why more pinball doesn't have interactive stuff as Ben mentioned... Example of this and something simple to achieve is Disney World has an attraction called "It's Tough to Be a Bug!" inside the tree of life at Animal Kingdom from the movie a Bug's Life... During the attraction "Hornets sting the audience (which triggers hidden pokers as well as leg ticklers in the back of the seats)"

    How amazing would stuff like that be to implement into pinball, hide them in the legs, the sides of the cabinets / near the flipper buttons. Does any game do that ?! Where it's not just mechanically interacting with the ball / playfield toys, but actually the player ?!

    Yes I own a whirlwind and it blows wind at your face which is what I'm saying an amazing novelty that works incredibly with the theme,... why don't we have more games incorporate physical interaction with the player ?!

    While that's true, Shakers are in MANY games... what's a unique interactive feature specific to the theme that interacts with the player ?

    #574 4 months ago

    So you're hoping for something more like this?

    It’s not BTTF as stern are doing that.

    How long before they run out of outdated data east has been themes to rehash? I'm kinda looking forward to them redoing some of those stellar sega titles.

    I would love for someone to take on a WW2 Naval war theme. Possibly pick an epic battle like Samar or Surigao straight.

    I realize this would be niche but maybe with someone like Sterns vault/contract pins... I would love to imagine an Iron Maiden rethemed as something like this.

    O-din you shut your dirty mouth

    BTTF deserves a game that isn’t a complete turd, although I’m not sure if I’m all that happy hearing Stern are doing it.

    Make mine MMFR - Shiny and Chrome Edition.

    I would jump into this hobby with both feet if it was done right. Use images from the game or movie or the comics that came out recently. Gritty comic book mad max art would be awesome. Alice cooper style but Mad Max.

    Maybe in the 90's.....now? No. The delorean will be a non descript vehicle, and Marty will be voiced by Eric Stoltz.

    BTTF is as popular as ever. The DeLorean is so iconic especially in relation to BTTF I don’t think pulling a JP Jeep move would work.

    Donate a small % of the sale proceedings or line up some charity events (launch parties) in relation to MJF Foundation and I bet he would be on board, worked for VP Cabs.

    What I meant was a good machine would have been more practical in the 90's. Now, I think by the time they paid for the license you'd end up with a whitewood and some hot wheels glued around it. (although you might be right)

    Probably why it’s going to be a KaPow release if it does get done. Regardless it will likely be a disappointment but one can hope.

    Might as well get Roiland to do the voice of Marty Lol ... maybe he'd pose for the backglass too?

    Agree the theme is a waste of effort without MJF and the deolorian. Might as well be family ties ....
