The Beatles pin will be upon us soon enough. This is a Ka-Pow / Stern Pinball title set to release this December 2018 for Holiday sales. This pin will be the follow up pin to Batman 66 also brought to us by the great Ka-Pow / Stern Pinball. The Beatles is arguably by far the most groundbreaking, influential musical group ever. Hit after hit this band has pumped out some great music. This pin is also alleged it will have a very rare super LE version similar to batman 66 as well. This very rare Beatles Super LE is alleged to only have 30 made. Beatles fans from around the world will make this a very hard version of the game to acquire. On a Happy note there will be more LE's and plenty of Premiums to go around. This title is a tough one to gauge. Most people I have spoken to tell me this pin is a must have for their collection. Undoubtedly this pin has a huge library of songs to choose from. Here is a list of songs from the band.

You lost me at "The".

#3 3 months ago

Shame there is no pro for this title.

Would have been cool if the whole game was in black and white.

Joe did say this game has a 'classic' feel so guessing it is going to have many retro features.

I did wonder if the licence was for one of the movies -

Help?

Hard Day's Night?

#4 3 months ago

This title can go either way for me. It has been rumored it will be more of a nostalgic throwback game. I hope they have a mix of old and new. It's great to have a classic feel but I really need some modern innovation in my pins. Especially the ones that cost north of 8K.

I like the Beatles but I'm not keen on a Beatles pinball.
Bad Religion or a Vandals pin, well that's another story. I would buy one of them.

On the stream/podcast a month or so ago they made a point to say it wasn't going to be crazy expensive like BM66.

Will we see a premium in the sub 7k range? This would be really good if so.

I thought Joe also said their would be only one model?

#11 3 months ago

I'm not sure your rumors are up to date.

I heard classic style game, 1 model only, premiumish pricing, limited production number, once they are gone they are gone.

#12 3 months ago
Quoted from Trekkie1978:

You are correct sir, but it's also on one of the Beatles Anthology albums. Personally I would include any of the songs on the Anthology in a listing though, except for 'Free as a Bird' and 'Real Love' since they were released as singles as well.

"allegedly" Yes classic style single level pin. However there is to be different trim levels as most distributors are already preparing for this. To the best of my knowledge there is a super le and the other versions are just different trim packages. Perhaps not better or worse then one another however just different art styles. Again things change all the time for a multitude of reasons. Time will tell. This thread is merely here to post thoughts and ideas on this title.

#14 89 days ago

Whats less than zero interest?

Maybe it's cause I'm a youngin (33) in regards to the majority of the community but probably the lamest theme I can think of.

Have no desire for Munsters either but it has a lot of fun and interesting ideas to pull from for toys and modes.

At least they crushed it with Imdn and DP

None of their solo songs will make it into the game.

Just look at The Beatles Rock Band. At the time of the release, it was asked if any of the members solo work would be included or added in to the game, they couldn't due to licensing. This is a product that sold millions of copies, to where the pinball machine will be no more than a few thousand units.

#16 89 days ago
Quoted from jgentry:

I'm not sure your rumors are up to date.

Oh come on. COME ON! There's no way, OP is just starting wild rumors (then putting "speculation" at the title's end as a CYA).

I mean, he did formally announce MBr to the world a full calendar year before the manufacturer was even able to announce it... and the mods had to change it to "speculation". Then OP did announce that MBr would be 2 great games in one... and then "speculation" was added. Who would think that this Super LE story is not up to date and/or incorrect?

ASOA You don't have to take every thought in your head and go full Town Crier on Pinside. I don't know if it gives you the false sense of being important by starting all these threads, or if it makes you feel like you're "part of it all" but you looked like a damn fool and ate a ton of crow with the "MBr - 2 great games in 1" thread. And by just trying to CYA with "rumor" and "speculation" at the end of each thread, you're using the same weaselly method TV pundits overuse the word "allegedly" to spew whatever lies they're dying to repeat. Either report actual news, or sit back like all of us and wait until things are in stone. If I were CGC, I'd be pissed at that "2 games in 1" thread, and wouldn't give a damn about how many LE's you're ordering, or how many times you mentioned you're ordering said LE's. Anyone can come up with ideas, report them as fact, and then put "speculation" at the end. Just because you do it weekly doesn't raise your importance here, and if anything, by reading some of the other threads, you've probably cost yourself a few customers.

You have serious problems. All you do is follow anything I do On pinside and downvote.

Monster Bash announcement last year I believe you downvoted that one as well. Turns out it was right. as far as the 2 games in 1. I guess that did not pan out. Perhaps it was something they were attempting to do and decided to scrap the idea. As soon as it was stated different the name of the thread changed. I don't post what is in my head. Trust me you do not want to know what I'm thinking about you right now. Lets all be positive. This thread was supposed to benefit the community. If you cant contribute then why are you here? For some reason whatever I post bothers you. Look at every thread I made and most posts you downvote everything. You must have allot of free time on your hands. Please do not highjack this thread Its not fair to the others in the community.

#18 89 days ago

I think it’s based on the movie, so a lot of the art will be 60’s hippyish...I think it’ll look amazing, but unfortunately I’m not a Beatles fan

#19 89 days ago

If this is s December release what will be the new game at expo in October?

#20 89 days ago
Quoted from luvthatapex2:

Munsters.

Yeah - I am just pointing out that it was also recorded when he was a Beatle, years before his solo album, and Paul and John rejected it. That is the version on the Beatles Anthology. So it was on a Beatles Album, which is why someone would have it on a list of Beatles songs.

#23 89 days ago

So, 30 SLE?

Changing to 80 if there is demand?

Quoted from ASOA:

53 people downvoted you, because you weren't in a place to report it, it wasn't confirmed by CGC, and you reported it as fact. And a broken clock shouldn't take credit for occasionally being correct.

Quoted from ASOA:

As soon as it was stated different the name of the thread changed.

So now we agree it was bogus thread to begin with.

Quoted from ASOA:

This thread was supposed to benefit the community.

These threads rarely, if ever do so and that's what you fail to realize. But you always try to spin it like this to look like the guy who isn't spamming the forum with pointless threads. Oh, and you forgot your textbook "WAY TO GO (Insert company name)! "

Quoted from ASOA:

You must have allot of free time on your hands.

In one year, you've created more posts than I've ever had. Pot meet kettle.

But rant over. Let's allow the "speculation" to continue and spiral out of control until we have to revise the titles and rumors that were reported like fact. That should benefit the community!

I’m right there with you in both age and your thinking on the rumored next machines from Stern.

I’d love to see a Sons of Anarchy machine. It was an awesome TV show and could hopefully bring a good motorcycle game to the market.

LOL I just received the same vulgar and childish pm from him. I don't think this is how Jonathan Demare / Amusement Services of America should be treating people but at least I got a laugh this morning.

Why would distributors be preparing for multiple trim levels already? DP just started shipping and Munsters is next. Beatles could get pushed back or delayed for months so I just don't see why any distro would even be thinking about it at all. While possible I also don't think its likely that The Beatles drops this year at all. That would put DP, Munsters, and TB very close together.

For me I'm slightly intrigued. I like the theme and would be ok with a classic style game. It will just depend on how good the game is though and what the price is. People already jumping in might want to pull back on that a little.

Beatles is first quarter 2019 , so that could be any of those 3 months. Munsters would be maybe Expo ( personally I think thats too quick) . Most likely November, you want as many sales on Dead Pool.

Not sure why. The Munsters is allegedly a Stern only title dropping in October. The Beatles is Ka-Pow / Stern. Perhaps Ka-Pow was hoping to get some of that Holiday sales. Just an idea. Who knows? Very possible it does get pushed to January. However that is a bad move if you are only making money on The Beatles pinball. Usually people are broke after the Holidays. Guaranteed that would slow sales of any pin that would come out so early first quarter.
