    Quoted from Kharris:

    I think something with a Greek mythology theme would be great. So much potential imo.

    WOOLY

    Quoted from Sinestro:

    More information has come to light.

    See above.

    Oh is that it? And I thought you were just slow... since others concluded that a year ago.

    Quoted from Sinestro:

    We're all trying to read the tea leaves here, bub.

    That's quite a double standard. When it's you putting your foot in your mouth, it's just an innocent mistake. But with others, you love to come down like you're some kind of authority, with a condescending tone no less.

    It reminds me of another pinsider who was a bumbling buffoon, "Captain_Kirk". You might want to research that fellow below. He eventually so disgraced himself with so many pinsiders, he permanently left 2 years ago with his tail between his legs. Then he came back as a different user, but old habits die hard so most recognized him easily.

    Gladiators would be cool

    #104 7 months ago

    Yep

    Greek
    Gladiators
    Western

    What about some more board games. Fireball Island, Risk, Clue, Battleship?

    Board game or Christopher Reeve movie based?

    #107 7 months ago

    I would be down for a Greek mythology pin, unlicensed would be fine but if it had to be licensed then the obvious choice for the coolest callout ever!

    Western would be sweet. The huge success of red dead 2 shows there is public interest. Could be a good earner on route

    #109 7 months ago

    My money is safe!!

    #110 7 months ago

    Western sounds good.

    How about a Jonah Hex in Comic form. Art would be good, couple with a good layout.

    #111 7 months ago

    Back to the Future trilogy has western...just sayin

    #112 7 months ago

    Everyone talking about all of these band pins but I can't believe nobody has mentioned an Ozzy Pin I mean how awesome could they make that one

    Nothing to get past, just highlighting for some of the new comers your true character, pun intended.

    I'd like a western themed pin.

    For europe please re-theme it slightly and make it an italian western pin!

    Now I can't stop thinking about a "Wild Wild West" pin,...

    I bet that thing could bomb so hard it'll take the entire pinball industry down with it.

    Quoted from NoQuarters:

    Or maybe a Captain And Tennille pin - Muskrat Love Multiball.
    All kinds of Music pins that could be made.... CAT license would probably be cheap too !

    Straight Outta Compton music pin

    I wear my Genesis shirt at tournaments. I don’t think anyone but me wants that music pin

    Genesis deserves every cent they have taken from me.

    .. as an operator, music themes have been a real dud....

    that is because all of the music pins are based on music that is 30- 40 years old.

    look, the current TOP 40 pop music chart is as follows:

    female/dance/pop/electronic female single artist (edm) (14 songs)
    rap/hip hop/R&B= 10 songs
    electronic duo, etc/edm- 11 songs
    bubble gum pop music- 5 songs

    thats it, no ROCK. Rock is not popular and has not been for quite some time.
    the only people that argue that old rock band games are good for pinball are older white males that want them for their house, NOT TO OPERATE.
    It's an aging group and its fading out.
    can any operator on here honestly say people on location react well to them and they earn high? be honest.
    unless its a full blown classic rock location with all older rock clientele.
    In a lineup of games like DP, SW, GB, POTC, GOTG does any rock pin out earn any or all of those?

    get with the times, put someone who is currently BIG and has been selling solid and remained popular for 5 plus years and people will drop money in them on location. Try something urban or EDM based.

    Well these 'old' Rock Bands have a place in the home owners market, wich is about 50% of total sales.

    But I still think a chart music pin would be awesome, but maybe you have to built this machine different.
    Problem is, "new" get's "old" quick, and not everything in the US charts is even known outside the US.
    So not one artist but a mix of the whole charts, with kinda 'generic' playfield art. Then you could push out a new edition of the game every year, including changed music and changed music videos for on screen display.

    Thinking that further, make that DLC! With Stern going online it is certainly a possibility.
    Or (propably best) make it an upgrade pack, not only with new code but with a new overpriced Translite (maybe magnetic Decals) to show people that it's a "new machine". So like "Just Dance 2019".

    Top 40 pop chart.
    Check a rolling stone or some other medium that plays music featuring instruments. I doubt the country top 40 has any rock or pop in it.
    Besides, Pop music is fleeting and gets out of date quickly. I doubt there are many people clamoring for new kids on the block, spice girls or backstreet boys. I know so many people listened to that crap when I was a teenager and none of them would dare listen to them now. That doesnt mean I wouldn't enjoy a Micheal Jackson pin though. (jokes aside)

    #136 7 months ago

    Michael Jackson pin would kill....

    #137 7 months ago

    The Top Gun sequel is coming out in the next year or two. Maybe Stern could do what Williams could not and get the best license ever?

    #138 7 months ago
    Quoted from skink91:

    Music pins have pushed beyond market saturation. The people that buy pins are tired of them, even when they are bands they enjoy. Then consider just how many of these people that buy/play pins, even those that enjoy Bon Jovi, would want to play pinball to it with the smiling faces of Jon Bon Jovi and Richie Sambora looking up at them..
    Ridiculous? You have got to be kidding me.

    Yes music pins have pushed beyond market saturation; however, no theme has had more machines made than the "spooky humor" theme but the reaction to Munsters has been very positive and pinheads cannot wait for Elvira's 68-year-old cleavage to be featured on her third pin... If the games are good they will sell, that's all there is to it.

    It won't be 68-year-old cleavage on the pin. I can guarantee that.

    Music games that did well to very well on the route I help with:
    AC/DC LTBR
    Metallica Premium (the Pro was a route dud, so we upgraded, and it was worth it)
    KISS Premium
    Iron Maiden Pro

    Music games that sucked balls on that same route:
    Aerosmith Premium

    #141 7 months ago

    Time for

    Pink Floyd, This one can go the full gamut easy ! Pro, Prem, LE !

    Black Sabbath

    Slayer

    Megadeth

    last 3 @ 500 unit instant sell out on each title

    Viable ?

    I think yes, only if dedicated team

    Agree with this 100%. While I personally love a music pin for my home, I HATE them for my location. Right out of the box they are at the bottom of the earnings list. The only way I see a music pin being a hit is if they drop Michael Jackson.

    Hope the next few announcements are sexy titles for operators!
    Jaws
    Superman
    Thor
    Bird Box....( totally kidding )

    Something that everyone knows and will be drawn to.

    #143 7 months ago

    I've been watching the releases of MB RM and Munsters, yet reserving my money for Elvira 3. I'm hopeful it will be a full release with 3 types of machines. Resale and demand on her first 2 pins has been strong. Up here in Canada when an EATPM goes up for sale it sells extremely fast. I don't think I've seen a Scared Stiff for sale up here in over 3 years. I know a number of people that have them, but they just won't sell. Last rumours I heard slated E3 for a Halloween 2019 release.

    Stern also has a habit of releasing superhero pins. Lots of talk about a Superman, but I also see they are resurrecting Hellboy in theatres this April. Not sure that's likely though considering DP was a 3Q 2018 release.

    Pretty sure the super hero market is saturated as well as music pins.

    #145 7 months ago

    The super hero market has not fared all that well in pinball recently I m o.

    But, I don’t really like Deadpool, and I fully enjoy the game. Exceptions make the world go around.

    I do like avengers pin, no one else is with me in the conversation, usually.

    I really do not like the Munsters tv show, but I am still excited to check that thing out.

    They seem to be on a nice roll. Good for them and in turn us.

    #146 7 months ago

    Curious why there isn’t a jukebox theme? Choose the style or generation of music at ball select then the game goes through that music . Just a thought .

    #147 7 months ago

    I believe the next games will be
    Steve Ritchie's unlicensed theme March/April
    Brian Eddy's game July/August
    Elvira 3 October/November
