I posted this about a month ago in the Next Stern Pin....

IF and when a STRANGER THINGS Pinball comes out :

Should have :
-Iconic creepy score plays at power up / ball launch
-Demogorgon mech opening ball swallowing / spitting out feature.
-LED blinking Christmas lights that WILL communicates with you
-Lower Playfield which represents the "Upside Down" (or entire Playfield becomes grayscale, perhaps flippers are reversed )
-Magnetic levitating ball / save feature that Eleven saves you with her powers
-Waffle / Eggo pop bumpers
-The Clash - Should I stay or should I go needs to play at some point as a music clip
-Spinner which rotates / activates the kids bike tires
-Dustin And Suzie Sing 'The NeverEnding Story' when having a long balltime / wizard mode
-Need to collect items like Steve's Spiked bat to battle
-Scoops Ahoy flavor mode call outs with Erica serving as she puts the ERICA in AMERICA
-Save / Find Barb mode
-Final Battle Mode with The Mind Flayer
-Star Court Mall escalator ramp for the ball to slide down
-Murray Bauman hidden hide out spot on the playfield
-Chief HOPPER call outs
-Billy mode heavily featuring the shaker as he's a pretty intense character
-Gather Friends Lucas, Dustin, Will, Mike, increase multipliers
-Hurry up mode Close the gate
-Joyce Byers cracking her axe as the playfield rumbles from the shaker
-Initials / name "Mad Max" score should be the highest score from factory
-Dr Martin Brenner gather test subject modes
-Bob Newby aka Sean Astin Ball Save
-Chief Hopper SHOOT Again!
*Beat MAD MAX Dig Dug score or mini Hawkins Arcade mode on LCD screen
*Other 80's references throughout the playfield
*Walkie Talkie communication / call outs

When Stern introduces the world net play functionality the Game locations should be one will be located in the US somewhere (not in Hawkins anymore) the other somewhere in Russia.

Hopper is NOT Dead he's playing Galaga in Russia.

I figured it's going to look kinda like this

Quoted from Rondogg:

what is "another" interactive upside down ramp? Was there a first?

I'm guessing its a similar technique that they used in Ghost Busters vision ?

Quoted from Rockytop:

Am I the only own waiting on a spicy chicken sandwich because Stern's stopped making them to focus on buying all the pizza in Benton?

Speaking of food and getting back on Stranger Things track....apparently yet another familiar Brian Eddy Easter egg finds it's way into this game....

#429 1 year ago

No one really talking much about the Hologram feature that it will supposedly have...I'm thinking Sega's Time Traveler Hologram game from 1991... It's going to be sick to have holograms on the playfield... did Stern miss the boat by not implementing that on Star Wars with R2D2 / Princess Leia?

I'm guessing it will be demogorgans ? You need to hit them or go past them as the playfield LED lighting / holograms of floating stuff... If that's the case it would be amazing.

Quoted from Whysnow:

can't say I blame you [quoted image]

It's a monogamous pinball collection

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I’d like new blood for the art. DD is fine, but not my top choice.

Piranha DD this would be the backglass... competition for Casandra / Elvira.

Quoted from HookedonPinonics:

Everyone is waiting in anticipation for this pin and I am sitting here wondering how the phone call is going with Ryanbrooks and his Distributor regarding his delayed MMr.....

618-625-8313 is his number.... oh wait that's Murray Bauman's. .... go ahead call... he knows why MMr is late... leave him a message!

Quoted from Medisinyl:

Built this one for halloween. My fiancee and I dressed up as Scoops Ahoy Steve and Robin.

MMMMM 2 scoops of Robin please!

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I was thinking the same thing. Good call.

I was thinking they can implement the "Mist" BSD Ball slowing it down with the LED lighting to represent the upside down , in addition to the upside down ramp.

Quoted from Kiwipinhead:

Why couldnt Lyman team up with Brian. Stern could have had the next AFM ,MM.

Because Stern is saving that combo for "Jaws"

frankmac left his Next Stern Pin thread to come into this Stranger Things thread, which means this is the ultimate Stranger Things thread... Let's just hope we have the same reaction as Dustin and company when the reveal takes place.

Quoted from JohnnyPinball007:

And no playfield pics yet.


#885 1 year ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Wonder if this is the type of projector?
Struggling to visualise how this would work though
amazon.com link »

I’m thinking it will look like the Walt Disney World castle projection for the shows and or Universal studios projection on the Harry Potter castle.

#899 1 year ago
Quoted from pinmister:

I keep peeping in on this thread to see if we have any pics yet? This anticipation is killing me.[quoted image]

While I enjoy the Stranger things Barb pool scene, as well as the billy pool scene... I'm partial to the Fast Times at Ridgemont High scene with Phoebe Cates.

No need for Novus on the playfield... Steve Harrington said ; "do four puffs of the Farrah Fawcett spray"

Quoted from Tsskinne:

Hasn't he already had multiple wrong predictions this week?

yes, but mainly the travesty was him using the shake weight gif

#934 1 year ago
Quoted from Bud:

If this has been asked already, for give me, I didn’t read every post.
Why are people using “ST” for stranger things when “ST” is used for Star Trek?

STP but that reminds me of Sublime as in Secret Tweaker Pad

or NTP as in Netflix Stranger Things

Quoted from T3quila:

What's the expected lifetime of such one and the lifetime of the bulb or light source? Honest question, have no idea...

I'd guess 2,500 - 8,000 hrs if it's not LED although Most LED bulbs 50-100k hrs

#947 1 year ago

I'm guessing it's going to look like this Projection mapping which is explained in detail on Adam Savage’s Tested YouTube:

Just think white drop targets / other white plastics where they can change whatever is on the playfield / interact with the game / ball / modes etc.

Magenta powder coating you can see from another dimension

Quoted from pinmister:

Clear coat on LE is looking Shiiiiiiiiiiiny[quoted image]

It's gotta hold up, you certainly don't want insert wear especially on this game.

Quoted from TheFamilyArcade:

Any on location in NYC right now?

I would imagine Sunshine Laundry in BK will get one
