I’m a huge fan of the Beatles but come on. This is rubbish. I wouldn’t piss on that thing if it was on fire.

#353 6 months ago

Looks like it only has 5 songs on it as well. I figured that with the more basic layout, it would at least include a larger selection of songs from that era. Makes me wonder if the songs had to be individually licensed above and beyond the theme.

#354 6 months ago

So they are going to sell 100 of these "Diamond" editions for how much?

(edit) I can't read it was 100...

#355 6 months ago

Costco Batman looks better then this...

#356 6 months ago

Kind of looks familiar now that I think about it.

I suppose in trying to keep it positive, it is an improvement over Beat Time. I..... uhhhh.... think.

Stern Star Wars what a letdown of a great license...Beatles "Hold my beer"

I don't think Stern is trying to pull a fast one. I'm sure they'll acknowledge it is a re-skin, similar to Batman 66 and The Dark Knight.

Quoted from TechnicalSteam:

Not a fan of color scheme! YIKES.. Running running far away

It would be a BIG improvement if it was in black and white, like their appearance on the Ed Sullivan show.

Oh for fucks sake Stern!

Quoted from kermit24:

Look again the number is 100 as for the price that is what will decide how offensive the game is. The style fits the Beatles era but if it is NIB prices like Whoa Nellie that's BS I wanted a Whoa Nellie but the price kept me out

#365 6 months ago

Ahhhh that's nice of you stern ,a pinball machine for my mother!
Stern serving pinball to every generation.

Now go make a Jurassic World pin please! My nephew wants one
Me too btw

Seawitch is a great game so not sure why this won't be.

I'll take five of 'em!

I think someone re-used the Austin Powers palate!

#370 6 months ago

New Zizzle price point?

#371 6 months ago

I'm still drawn to 'why use an opto' for the spinner??

#372 6 months ago

Does the game come with a coin door or did they cut that out too??

#373 6 months ago

gross

Speculate no more...

To be clear I up-voted this for posting it, not for what I think of what they are doing here.

No Yoko = no sale.

#376 6 months ago

No one will put any coins in this. Why do they bother with Coin Doors anymore. Who has quarters to spend???

Me too.

#378 6 months ago

#379 6 months ago

Official unboxing instructions from Stern:
Step one: remove pin from cardboard box
Step two: place in trashcan

Often when playing seawitch I wish it had a spinning disk and magnet in the middle. Ahhh the thousands of extra dollars; I get it now!

#382 6 months ago

Are they really not making a basic version of this Beatlewitch?

Wow Stern, just wow. I envisioned a black and white game in the hard days night style for a Pro , in a traditional game style as well, with LE’s being Abbey Road and Sgt Peppers. Way to waste the license...

#383 6 months ago

I'm not a Beatles guy so this was never on my radar. I thought they hit the right demographic with this one going old school. Never can tell with pinside.

#385 6 months ago

Bwhahah wow that is ugly.....I like that they went with a classic layout, but just release Seawitch or Stargazer or Quicksilver then if you're gonna do it

#386 6 months ago

The sad thing is Stern spent $1 million on the license based on the Ka-Pow interview...ugh. That article also said the game would be a corner stone title...No wonder Stern is trying to recoup as much money as they can by having a low BOM cost and a very high asking price. Going to ask a big price then collectors expect big features, not this...

#387 6 months ago

Definitely not a "Cornerstone" title. I wonder if Munsters is still coming this year.

Fantastic sir. Your grand total is $50,000. Cash or card?

You have to record and submit 5 videos first.

I do kind of agree with this. I guess Seawitch matches the "modern" style /speed of play out of the most of them.

Who wants to guess pricing?

I'm thinking in the Batman vein

8000
9500
12500

I'm also thinking most of these end up in Beatles' collectors homes.

#391 6 months ago

what a turd...but still looks better than Avengers lol

#392 6 months ago

According to the YouTube post:

Only 100 Diamond Edition Games
Only 250 Platinum Edition Games
Only 1614 Gold Edition Games
Only 1964 Games in Total

I think the demo for this era are all in Nursing homes that wouldn't allow a noisy pinball.

#394 6 months ago

Anyone else see this?

Only 100 Diamond Edition Games
Only 250 Platinum Edition Games
Only 1614 Gold Edition Games
Only 1964 Games in Total

Update: Sorry, saw this was just posted.

#395 6 months ago

Sure is great to have Kaminkow back!

Quoted from Sinestro:

napkin math says $1,000,000 / 1964 = $509 per machine in licensing costs.

Quoted from bobbyconover:

So Joe brokered the Beatles license rights to Stern? And then we all pay the KaPow tax?

#398 6 months ago

How well did PBR do? How well did Aerosmith do?
Should be a poll real soon. What person in right mind would buy a rethemed Sea Witch?

#399 6 months ago
Quoted from cscmtp:

Man, for me I think Acengers looks better I'd have to go back to Elvis for this bad...but that's another particular pop culture scheme I can't stand as well.

I would if it wasn't priced at 8 grand, and didn't look like this.
