    Cool

    #3 5 months ago

    Looks great so far...

    #4 5 months ago

    Nice art!

    Congratulations, ForceFlow!

    #5 5 months ago

    These look great. Was really wanting this pin.

    #6 5 months ago

    Wasn’t this supposed to be a rumored stern pin? Is this not stern art?

    #7 5 months ago

    Otisburgh Multiball? I'm in. Best Superman ever, Zod better be part of it.

    #8 5 months ago

    Just for clarification.

    Chris Franchi made these as part of a proposal but there wasn't deemed to be enough enthusiasm for the property to move forward with the title. We would not be releasing the photos otherwise.

    #9 5 months ago

    Note the playfield is just a placeholder and not represented in the drawings.

    #10 5 months ago

    Greatest Superman of all time!! Looks fantastic!

    Well to that I have to say, crappola. Stern needs to do a Superman pin based on the first 2.

    I thought Stern shot down his proposal of Beetlejuice. Wasn't aware Superman was rejected as well. No wonder he seems pissed at Stern.

    Quoted from konghusker:

    These look great. Not to mention that curved wire form loop.

    LOL, that's just a blurred Spider-Man playfield.

    #14 5 months ago

    Damn it, I was actually about to buy a NIB Stern!

    #15 5 months ago

    It looks great but I think Stern was right, it probably would not sell well.

    It's not his job to do unpaid spec work before a licensing deal is done. It's not his job to propose potential games. That's on him. Stern licenses properties, then hires an artist to do the art package.

    That being said, I find it BONKERS that no one at Stern thinks Beetlejuice is worth doing. On theme alone, it would be their next Ghostbusters. Massive massive classic Tim Burton fan base out there...the film has amazing Danny Elfman music and tons of great quotes and weird creatures. Could be a perfect game and a big seller.

    #17 5 months ago

    I would buy it!!! Oh man, I was so excited for this game.........This just ruined my day.

    #18 5 months ago

    Well that just counts as a crappy late April Fool's joke then.....

    Superman fits sterns target audience. I grew up watching this and think it’s a great theme. Much better theme than Munsters, Iron Maiden or even Beatles.

    #20 5 months ago

    So beautiful, was hoping Eddy’s team was making this. I love this theme, Jaws not so much.

    #21 5 months ago

    I guess I need to listen to the slap save podcast now.

    #22 5 months ago

    It will forever be in the fortress of solitude.

    #23 5 months ago
    Quoted from Gritty:

    I guess I need to listen to the slap save podcast now.

    Hell yea you do. Its awesome.

    #24 5 months ago

    I think it's safe to say JAWS is a lock now.

    #25 5 months ago

    That thing Is sexy as hell i would have loved to seen this game produced with that art I would have been interested in this title if it played good.

    #26 5 months ago
    Quoted from Marcdaddy:

    I think it's safe to say JAWS is a lock now.

    I hope so
    Had no interest in any sort of Superman...

    #27 5 months ago
    Quoted from Gritty:

    I guess I need to listen to the slap save podcast now.

    We'd appreciate you giving us a shot. Either way, I'm just thrilled to have Chris on the show with us and honored he allowed us to post these jaw dropping photos.

    It goes without saying I would have owned one... without a doubt.

    Me too. Damn.
    Perfect TILT scene too!!

    [quoted image]

    Ha! Absolutely!

    #30 5 months ago

    This was the only stern title I was looking forward to or even considering. Guess I'm waiting only for toy story and gnr now.

    #31 5 months ago

    Wow...how good is that!

    #32 5 months ago

    Awwwww.

    #33 5 months ago
    Quoted from Coz:

    Dead on.

    Quoted from Marcdaddy:

    I just don't get this. I liked Jaws and all, but it seems a little lack luster to me.

    No matter, no NIB for me anyway.

    #34 5 months ago

    That art looks great and that theme would have been perfect for me. Stern must have some killer themes lined up if they're passing on Beetlejuice and Superman.

    #35 5 months ago

    I think Stern was wise to pass on this to be honest. I have a soft spot for these movies, watched them as a kid (I was born in '77) and Christopher Reeve is still the definitive Superman for me. But ... I don't think they've aged that well for modern audiences. It's a funny match with with what DC is doing now, the scenes are going to look dated a bit corny on an LCD, and don't scream "pinball moments" to me.

    Beetlejuice would be a much better game to hang rule sets and theme on if I was picking 'rejected Franchi games'.

    Ah well, thanks for sharing, still fun.

    #36 5 months ago

    So releases possible
    Catwoman ( b66 retheme )
    Jaws
    Tron
    Elvira 3
    Godzilla...

    Not any time soon if at all

    #38 5 months ago

    Valerie Perrine was hot.

    #39 5 months ago

    I would of bought but not till code done!

    LMAO at complaining about code on a game that will never be made.

    SHowin' those Stern bean counters you mean business!

    #41 5 months ago

    Superman could work. There has been Superman movies/tv shows for decades all the way through just a few years ago. Not as popular as all the Marvel stuff now but plenty of nostalgia there for guys that grew up in the 70's like me. Rather see retro, corny Superman than a lot of other themes people are asking for. Fantastic music, great villains, lots of superpowers, multiple movies so lots of material - plenty to make a fun pin with a little effort.

    #42 5 months ago

    All BS and drama aside...this is awesome, thanks for posting.

    Really?
    Beattlejuice would sell nearly as close as Ghostbusters?

    #44 5 months ago

    Wonder how many licenses Stern get and don't use, because they don't make the final cut?

    #45 5 months ago

    Did Stern ok the release of this art?

    #46 5 months ago

    If I was a Superman 77 fan, I’d just buy a poster and a old lunchbox to display and call it a day.

    #47 5 months ago
    Quoted from vicjw66:

    Just Franchi lighting bridges on fire. The rest of the podcast
    is just him ripping on Pinsiders who questioned him in the Franchi
    thread. He fell out of the tree at TPF and has been hitting every
    branch on the way down. IMO, of course. Rest of the non Franchi podcast is
    awesome tho.

    #48 5 months ago

    Anyone else think this could be a sneaky way of firing up conversation and seeing / gauging reactions.....

    #49 5 months ago

    I'm guessing this one and the Beetlejuice ones were concepts that he was not paid for, since Stern did not use them. He has the right to share them as part of his portfolio like any other concept work...and Stern has the right to no longer use his services.

    Well considering the date uv posted u would also be alone.
