I see it and agree. I am guessing this is another inside joke with the designers (i.e. bash Gary mode in LOTR)

Wait what? Haha

In attract mode, hit both flippers. then 6L R 9L R 6L R 9L R. You should hear the Balrog roar.

Then get bash Balrog from the mystery award on ball 3 or 3 vuk shots.

Enjoy bash Gary now!

If consolation Balrog is turned off, you won't see it.

If you start FOTR before you get it, you won't see it.

Ok. Now this had to have been made public from someone on the inside, right? I can't see someone just stumbling onto this. Or maybe they looked at the code and figured it out?

#355 4 years ago

I couldn't name more than 5 Kiss songs. But wow, this machine looks amazing. If I had more room, I'd be a day 1 buyer on it.

#356 4 years ago

I want to see the playfield artwork.
looks like it might even be better than metallica....

Gene retired from KISS years ago. Gary has secretly been the Demon for years.....

#358 4 years ago
Quoted from vid1900:

I just don't believe you.
I have traveled the world and people from 8 to 80 all know KISS, English speaking or not.

To be fair it's heavily skewed toward the 80 side of that spectrum...

#359 4 years ago

I think the Gene head would have been more effective if the tounge with a magnetic tip would come out and snatch a ball and bring it into his mouth as a ball lock.

That would be a crowd drawing effect but what do I know?

#360 4 years ago

Kind of wondering how the "mist ball" will work on the backboard. Don't see the logic it. "Look at the cool ball going across the backboard"

It's part of a larger sequence involving a floating stage with a Paul Stanley toy.

What?!!!!!

#365 4 years ago

From the article:

"Paul Stanley has a unique feature as well, Dankberg explains. "At a KISS concert, [Paul Stanley] likes to fly out into the crowd and he plays on a little stage ... We re-created that with the ball, the ball will float the back panel on a magnet, land on the stage, then the toy Paul Stanley is going to rock out to Love Guns."

#367 4 years ago

It's going to carry the ball to a mini-playfield.

#368 4 years ago

Does anyone have any guesses on what the small coil in the clear box does?

I think that sounds really cool.

#370 4 years ago

We just unboxed our Metallica about a month ago now... kiss premium is coming in

It doesn't appear to be in any of the CAD drawings, which I find strange.

Quoted from cleland:

I just turned 42 in Feb and I can't tell you one Kiss song ever....somehow I've managed to avoid them my whole life. I'm happy to sit this one out and happy for those that have some kind of bond to a band of men in drag and finally get their "holy grail" pin. I'll wait for the next title

What the heck goes on in LA that Kiss costumes would be considered drag? Mebbe I don't have as firm a grip on the definition of that word as say, the person throwing it around?

Quoted from cleland:

Really?!? I just made a statement of who I am and what I know(or don't know) of KISS.

Yes, this does sound like a statement of "who you are". It does make you sound not particularly tolerant FWIW. Who knows, maybe you are genuinely REALLY excited that all those pinheads pining for a Liberace pin are apparently that much closer to getting their wish (not drag either, but certainly flamboyant)? Sarcasm does not always translate well on the internet.

#374 4 years ago

I assume it will be running the new spike system? Does spike work with pin browser?

#375 4 years ago

looks like I am gunna have to get ANOTHER external subwoofer ..... (FYI - I added one to a combo between my METLE and BIBLE and good lordy does that make a difference

company over (no pinball players - just want-to-have-funners) and they thought that room I have those 2 in was more than a pinball experience! a hit to say the least... yep - add a external sub to any heavy-hard rockin or shootem up action pin and it nudges it close to over the top!

#376 4 years ago

very excited to see this one!

OMG, I've never seen that clip before - hilarious!

Hilarious!

You guys haven't seen Role Models????

Netflix (or whatever "legal" means you have) that sh!t!

No.
Not yet anyway.

Quoted from Duff:

The objection is they cant finish one game, why try three different versions.

That makes no sense at all.

Of course this will be the LE/Pre feature right? I want to see the art package as well before I make the decision on machine model. I assume it will have to be a LE/Pre to get all the features.

I've heard June/July delivery for this title.

Looks like I have to get serious about unloading a few things to make room. I need a bigger house.

Super Pumped! Sent my deposit this morning! YA!

Quoted from woody24:

So how do people know what Stern is going to release. It seems that months before Stern announces a new game, the majority of people are already "guessing" what Stern is making.
In the latest Stern guessing thread, I thought the first comment about them making a KISS game was absurd. Why make a machine for them? But then more and more people seemed confident about it. Again, I thought they would be crazy to make one with a KISS theme. Because if they want to bring in a new younger crowed into pinball, KISS wouldn't be the way to do it.
Would have much liked to have seen a newer, current band like Foo Fighters, who are still making new music. And with all the references to airplanes in their songs, I'd also love to see some airplane toys in the game too.

Listen to the right people.

Odd, they just changed some colors on the cab, le gets button protectors and powder coating...

#390 4 years ago

Lol, wife wants...

#392 4 years ago

Very strange to see the same translite in all of them. Looks good though.

#393 4 years ago

I'm guessing that's all placeholder stuff.

#394 4 years ago

I didn't see the pro getting less songs then the prem or le. So that's nice.

Yes the levitating ball and a more complex Gene experience only come on the Pro and LE models..

Here is the reference sheet..

We knew KISS was coming because we knew that Stern got the license. There was discussion about how Stern got the license instead of JPop.

This is similar to how we knew that Star Trek was coming before it was released, because we found evidence that Stern had obtained that license as well.
