Looks real to me! Thanks for the link - very interesting.
While KISS is no dream theme for me, I think this could be a seller for all those non-pinheads who collect KISS merchandise. Plus, Stern keeping their new machine a bit retro is kinda cool.
Just seen this on IGNs website. Yeah.....it's KISS. Music based pins are Sterns go-to of late.
super quick shots of the playfield in the video. the magnetic ball on the backboard was interesting. did I see that right?
Looks awesome! Stern has been on a roll with great Rock-based pins since AC/DC!
The flying pinball/Paul Stanley has me intigued as well!
Also, interesting that Stern is pre-announcing the Premium model again.
spinner under head
Ball shoots out of mouth
Same artist as original machine (Pretty sure?)
Looks cool. Not a fan of their music though. Hopefully if I get to play one, it will be in a crowded area where you can barely hear.
Looks pretty solid so far! Very cool that they got Kevin O'Connor to do the art again. Nice song list too. I'm neutral on Kiss - but these are all songs you hear by accident and enjoy. I'd play pinball to them!
I like the Paul Stanley "Ball" moving across the back.
Game looks like fun.
LTG : )™
the ball across the backboard is le/premium. How long untill someone gets a gene head and repaints it without makeup and green dollar signs for his eyes?
well, atleast I can keep saving my money looks like it could be a nice machine, just not into the theme in the least bit
Two playfield holes...might we actually see the return of a subway (PLEASE!!!)
Like the unique looking layout of the game.
Guessing this isn't a SR design?
If Kevin was allowed to do the art, hope they gave him a bit of artistic freedome, although the pf sketch looks promising. Set list is expected, nothing really stands out as unique.
Looks interesting, doubt I buy one, but still looks interesting. Looking forward to seeing more pics.
I'm thinking the same. Whether or not we (Pinsiders) are stoked for this title as a majority, I think that the overseas market will snap this up at a fairly quick pace. Not to mention stateside Barcades, KISS fans / followers, and the Pinsiders that appreciate KISS since the 70's.
I wasn't sure I'd be psyched.
But I'm officially psyched!
Loving the hand-drawn art! Can't wait to see the feature list and full art packages for the various models.
I warned my wife I might put off buying anything else in case KISS looked good. Obviously have to play to confirm the purchase...but it's looking good!
