    Just saw this come across my FB feed.

    That's just a hombrew pin project (Rolling Stones conversion). What's the connection to Stern?

    Quoted from PinBalt:

    What's the connection to Stern?

    Well, the original Rolling Stones WAS a Stern. So sort of related.
    (More likely winslow is referencing the constant rumors that Iron Maiden is actually coming as a Stern game.)

    I did this "homebrew" design for my screen saver over a year ago, just wishing & hoping Stern would finally pull the trigger & announce it! Hopefully, just a matter of time.

    Markmon did that one.

    All the purple GI is a dead giveaway that it is Markmon's retheme.

    Iron Maiden has been my favorite band for over 30 years. But, I beg, please don't let it be Stern. I would love Jersey Jack to be the one to make the machine. I just feel JJ puts more effort and thought into their games. Stern, anymore, just seems to regurgitate the same machines with new artwork. No real innovation in their machines. I would hate to see a great themed machine wasted on the Stern business model of crank out a new machine quick just to get it out there before someone else gets the rights to do it.

    Not only to mention but also something to stress - we expect great sound and music in our Iron Maiden pin. As good as Rob Zombie, The Hobbit or Alien (gold standard for best sound category)!

    Think this pin and s still getting made?

    Not a chance ..
    Been to the factory recently and the answer is no .. not a big enough demographic im told for sales return ....

    #12 32 days ago

    Gary has been checking with the european market what rock bands are popular. He was given the answer metallica, acdc, kiss and iron maiden amongst others.

    High chance judging by what bands currently have been getting a pin

    Good. Sell the license to Jersey Jack.

    Hmmm difficult personal decision. I would love jjp doing IM as long as it is not woz or hobbit layout/feel and i believe they would make it a beautiful game with respect to the band, theme and music, but i dont want that insane price tag that comes along with jjp games... i have just as much fun with stern games.

    Well, many others say Stern having been working on this title for over a year....

    sorry, can't see a iron maiden pin ever being made, unless its by a smaller company like spooky. we'll see a led zeppelin or a pink Floyd or some other band with many "hits" long before we'll see this band. they just don't have the iconic status.

    -3
    #17 31 days ago

    I am pretty sure stern is working on this.. only issue being if it was JT doing this. But stern screws up most marketing opportunities, so why start being political correct now and ditch the whole game because of JT, instead of removing his name from it?

    #18 31 days ago

    How purple.

    They're really big in South 'Merica, so let's get that out before you here it 1000 times
    Seesm totally niche to me, as no one I know has ever listened to IM. Of course 99% of pinsiders do so there is that.

    Quoted from Edenecho:

    so why start being political correct now and ditch the whole game because of JT, instead of removing his name from it?

    Best possible outcome...I'd rather have another Borg copy/paste job than a JT layout GB, Mustang, WWE...no thanks.

    #19 31 days ago

    Well yeah sure, id take a borg rehash as long as it is im, instead of never being made. But i personally really dig trudeaus bold designs. Some hit n miss, but at least he dares to try out new stuff, an ability lacking among many designers. Too bad he is most probably f****d in his head....:/

    I appreciate them for sure; trying something diff'rent I completely agree with. I just haven't liked any in decades.

    #21 31 days ago

    At least in europe(and south america according to several of their tour documentaries) iron maiden are huge. So its hard to imagine it wont sell... also compared to metallica and acdc, im has a lot more of the visual trademarks when it comes to eddie and the artwork. Hnnnnng. Get it made!

    It's a really really strong rumor from people who know these things

    But, not sure what influence the JT situation has had on it so things might have changed.

    #25 31 days ago

    I hope it is, I need to save money!

    #26 31 days ago

    So am i the only one who clicked on this topic hoping to see something about the 1982 Stern Iron Maiden?

    (I assume there is already some owners/enthusiasts thread for that title elsewhere on pinside. - Yes, the next thing i did was this, thanks: https://pinside.com/pinball/archive/iron-maiden/forum)

    While IM has some great album art and yes there is a fan base...it’s still VERY niche in musical taste. So yeah the return is not there for Stern....just like Slayer and any number of bands. Would be an excellent pin for a boutique company such as Spooky looking to sell a few hundred to a thousand pins of a given title. Stern looks to sell thousands of every title.......

    While both Slayer and Iron maiden are bad ass bands, Slayer could only dream of having the same amount of success as IM. Iron Maiden LEs would possibly sell out faster than METLE

    Agreed. Iron Maiden has a huge following. Their last tour grossed over $91 million and had 93+% sold out shows.
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/The_Book_of_Souls_World_Tour#Box_office_score_data

    The only thing that drags these numbers down were a couple of shows in southern US. Country music areas like Oklahoma City. Other than those, most of the shows are sold out.

    You sound foolish as you know nothing about Stern or Maiden. Tell me about WWE again???

    #35 27 days ago

    Iron Maiden and Alice Cooper themes make good themes, but I'd really enjoy spending time on an Ozzie/Black Sabbath pin. Any chance Stern might morph Iron Maiden into an Iron Maiden vs Black Sabbath metal battle? Maybe allow fans to pick eighteen songs from each group, to get the best, not the cheapest songs.

    #36 27 days ago

    I played Markmon’s Iron Maiden shortly after he finished it. Very fun game. Very different feel to it than the original rolling stones. Very impressive work IMHO!

    #37 27 days ago

    I know about three or more people who will buy iron maiden pinball. But they will just buy.

    It might not seem like much desire, but I know three you probably know three and so on and so on.

    They are in a class thier own. Iron maiden needs to be as good or better than Metallica. In my opinion.

    Also, I would make multiple iron maiden pins, like one for the first five albums, or so.

    Powerslave pinball.

    I would buy it if it was epic. As it should be...

    #39 23 days ago

    Anyone know if Iron Maiden is next game or the one after that?

    This game has the potential to be epic

    Just hope Stern up their game for this title.

    You don't think Iron Maiden is coming??

    #44 23 days ago

    Oh, it's coming. But not next. They are pretty much running out of classic rock bands that anybody still cares about. So this one for sure.

    I think they're already out aren't they? I mean no one cares aboot Aerosmith anymore

    When they get to Styx and Journey, half the Stern Army will be turning in their badges.

    Uff STYX. Hey at least Journey had a good videa game

    #48 23 days ago

    After Maiden, it will probably be Judas Priest's turn as they work their way down the classic metal ladder.

    #49 23 days ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    After Maiden, it will probably be Judas Priest's turn as they work their way down the classic metal ladder.

    Just the thought of it.....redeeeeeemeeerrr!
    Argh..... that would be amazing

    Priest songs would be perfect fit for pinball modes

    Quoted from o-din:

    Hey at least I know some of their songs. How will that sit with the huge homophob population here?
