Quoted from iceman44:

Branch out a little bit for F sake
Isn’t the idea to sell pins? Whatever
It will probably be JJPs first music pin. More their style
I guess I’ll lobby Deeproot too

It probably is a good thing that it is JJP style since they are the only one building innovative pinball machines these days. Someone should mention it to Eric, based on what he has done with POTC, I would want him on the design!

#1552 1 year ago

ACNC using P3-Roc now instead of Pinheck boards. Maybe P3-Roc for Spooky games from here on out?

#1553 1 year ago

I ordered it Tim, you can be more pumped!

#1554 1 year ago

That was a smart move.

Anyone streaming game play on it?

#1556 1 year ago

Beyond huge to get Bowen on the team.

Code was my big question mark for Spooky games and really they just couldn't have done a better hire.

Amazed one of the other companies didn't grab him but it's a win for Spooky!

Seeing this game makes me want a He-Man pin.

#1558 1 year ago

Looks AWESOME !

Congratulations team Spooky

#1559 1 year ago

What did he say new price was?

#1561 1 year ago
Quoted from focusmediagroup:

$6450

Highly doubt that Spooky can afford to pay as much as others might.

But I suspect that no-one else would be able to offer him as much freedom and potential to impact the end product.

Bowen's been around a while, probably doesn't have much to prove, and will likely keep other sources of income, so I can see why Spooky would be a good fit for him.

But who knows. They're a growing company. Maybe he got offered share options.

#1563 1 year ago
Quoted from MRudowsky:

Literally the first post in the thread. 500 @ $6250. There’s also a PinballStar ad directly below this post confirming $6250.

WTF??? Did Pinball Star just up there price to $6450??? I could have sworn it was $6250 yesterday. See ad below.

#1564 1 year ago

Oh wtf. Price up another 200?

Looks really cool but I’m still feeling it in the wallet all the money I’m gonna lose on Rz resale. Hopefully build quality is much better from rz and amh.

I’ll probably still get one at some point though

Official pricing was just released so people have updated the price....its that simple.

#1566 1 year ago

This is clearly a HUGE jump forward for Spooky. Really great to see this kind of progress!

#1567 1 year ago

They changed the electronics to p-roc which costs more but offers more.

#1568 1 year ago

Complaining about $200 On a $6k machine is hilarious!

#1569 1 year ago

Complaining about not being able to get re-sale value. Buy the machine to enjoy, don't buy as an investment.

#1570 1 year ago
Quoted from BladeFury:

They should have made it $6495....

#1571 1 year ago

Well played Spooky. Looks like my #169 TNA will have a friend later this year. Artwork and lighting looks sick, Bowen on the rules... feel good story of the year! Can’t wait to see gameplay videos.

I'm already the 5th owner of my RZ. That includes trips from corner to corner of the US, then a slow boat to Europe.

Not only does it still look absolutely pristine, but it's much more solidly built than recent Sterns (not that that is hard).

Could you be more specific about build quality? If you mean stuff like the plastic apron .. yeah. I hope that changes.

Regarding value. RZs haven't gone down more than should be expected from the price Spooky sold them at. People just had unrealistic expectations when those who didn't want to wait bought ones which were early off the production line for ~$8k. The same phenomenon will likely happen with Alice - some early ones will be sold at silly mark ups, before the used price settles below the original NIB price. This is hardly unique to Spooky. You should expect to lose money on the sale of any game you bought NIB.

#1573 1 year ago

Looks a like a big winner to me...I will seriously consider buying one.

Might just be my first Spooky machine!

I could hug you but maybe I'll just dump a ton of tokens in it.

And nobody taken close up pics can post on here

#1576 1 year ago

I thought previous spookly releases before tna had a disconnect between the cabinet art to the playfield art. I cant say the same with this release, the molded elements combined powder coated wireramps etc....this thing is a stunner and one thung above all...it doesnt look like a cookie cutter design

#1577 1 year ago

Ok, nice castle, what else does it have?

#1578 1 year ago
Quoted from kvan99:

I like the end of the right wireform. As that been used on another game before?

#1579 1 year ago

Does it have pops?

#1580 1 year ago

Great sculpts! Really nailed the world under glass.

Not sure about the Bowen hire. What’s his philosophy on code? Is it stack on top of stack on top of multiplier on top of stack math monkey tournament stuff? This game looks to be more mode/story driven... which I really like.

SDTM Exclusive First Look: Alice Cooper’s Nightmare Castle

#1584 1 year ago

Gotta love how loud the TNA is right next to it.

#1585 1 year ago

Need to see some multiball action !

#1586 1 year ago

Did anyone get the song list during the reveal?

And where is the Frankenstein toy? I think I’m going blind.

Ya definitely need to go back and grab that songlist. A feature matrix/playfield diagram would be good.

Is he what seems to be hiding behind the castle in the back left?

#1589 1 year ago
Quoted from snakesnsparklers:

Bowen Kerins is a Spooky pinball employee as of today! Directing code, rules, etc.

Congrats to both Spooky and Bowen!

PF art looks real generic. If the backglass didn't say Alice Cooper, there is no way I could tell this was an Alice Cooper pin (not true for AS/MET/KISS/GNR/etc.). Almost like they were hedging to see if the AC license would fly? No sexy nurse? Who knows. Did they mention what songs are being licensed? Is Alice doing any callouts?

Was really looking forward to this one, but the first impression is kind of "meh" in terms if paying tribute to Alice. I saw him recently with Deep Purple and the stage design/show was awesome. I expected that awesomeness to be reflected in the pin...

Good eyes, Charlie said that the toy would feed balls to two ramps, must be the left and upper playfield ramp.

#1593 1 year ago

Homerun for Spooky today!!! The TNA tutorial was amazing!!

What other pinball playfield does it look like? Because I can't think of one. Alice Cooper himself is on the backglass, and both sides of the cabinet, no one is ever going to be confused about it.

I didn't say it looked like any other pinball. Did I? My comment was directed at the PF, not the cabinet...might want to reread what I said.

TNA was the game of the year for 2017 and this is the front runner at the moment for 2018. Spooky is on a roll for sure.

#1598 1 year ago

Besides the big skull on the PF with the VERY iconic Alice Cooper makeup around it’s eye sockets?
Yeah, you’re totally right.
This is a The Crow Pin for sure! lol

#1599 1 year ago

That looks awesome. Killer looks all around. The rules sound really cool, love the fact that u need to work your way through mansion. Can’t wait to hear it and play it! Great job spooky.

#1600 1 year ago
