Hi Pinside,

I am almost done with my MoonWalking Dead pinball retheme, so I thought I'd share some photos and a gameplay video. Please note that the most recent software has more MJ callouts and a lot less of the generic character callouts that are original to the game. Also, we had a slight recording issue so there is a skip in the video around the 3 minute mark. We were still able to explore some of the other modes and features including LMS and Horde. Enjoy!

Didn't see that coming

Nice job! I like the angle of combining zombies with MJ. And those are some cool custom toys, especially "bloody Michael" and "bottom half of Michael".

Thanks Robin! Making this machine would not have been possible without the Pinside community, so the next time you're in Boston, MA, beers and MoonWalking Dead pinball are on me!

totally awesome. How did you get that 200 million jackpot ? video glitch right when you hit it.

I know, that was a bummer. I have all of my "Walker Kills" on so every completed shot in the game adds a walker kill, which will add another X to the inlane shot multiplier. In addition to having a solid CDC round (bunch of left ramp hits, collecting value at the other shots, then going back to left ramp), I was able to cash in a huge multiplier (12X maybe?) on the final CDC shot, collecting that monster value.

In this country... innocent until proven guilty in a court of law... last time I checked he didnt get convicted except in your court of public opinion. So... if you an't got nothing nice to say... Also; I don't speak ill of the dead.

Yeah it's available to play at "Flat Top Johnnys": www.flattopjohnnys.com Great bar with pool and Mitchs other games in Cambridge, MA. They serve food at this bar too and isn't too far away from Lanes and Games.

"For no mere mortal can resist
The evil of the thriller"

Great idea both funny and still on theme.

" That it's a Thriller, Thriller night"

I was trying to think of a way to say the exact same thing, I don't remember any jail time.

Jimmy Saville (a British TV personality) was never proven guilty in a court of law either. Have a read up on him for a few minutes after you refresh your memory on the equally shocking allegations about MJ.

But its fine with me if you want to stare at a 'real' monster, instead of fake ones. Just very weird tis all.

#25 2 years ago

Meh... not worth the effort.
Not an mj fan... but I do respect his work.
At this point he can do no further harm.

#26 2 years ago

Just in time for Halloween, I will put up a new video of the MoonWalking Dead gameplay with more call outs and music!

Thanks for all the interest!

By your logic, if a peadophile creates respected work, they get a pass?

If you want to adorn your stuff with deplorable child molesting scum, go ahead. Trying to defend the decision to do so shows your true nature.

#28 2 years ago

How can I do this to my machine? I am a huge MJ fan, are you able to sell those things like the transilite and Michael well walker figure??

#29 2 years ago

Love it. Especially like the glove topper. Well done.

#30 2 years ago

Add me to the list of folks who would love to see an updated video.

#31 2 years ago

Apologies for the delay on the video. To make up for that, I'm hosting FREE play pinball at Flat Top Johnny's in Cambridge tomorrow (Sunday Nov 6th @ 4pm) if anybody wants to come check out the MoonWalking Dead in person. I'll have the volume cranked up!

Game Of Thrones premium, MoonWalking Dead, Metallica ft Prince, Doctor Who, & Flat Top's Shootout pinball, all on FREE PLAY

i think that looks fantastic. i love Michael Jackson's music, it will live forever; and although i agree he was a bit of a creepy weirdo, i don't remember seeing anything that was damning or proof of anything other than a sad little child-man who preferred the company of children to adults. sleepovers, yes. payoffs to families to make the allegations go away, yes. proof of perversion, or testimony of abuse, no. a real parent of a real abused kid would never agree to hush money, never in a million years, they'd insist on it being public knowledge. i would, wouldn't you? no matter how big the payoff to shut up and go away. the fact they took the cash, to me, demonstrates that their case was never a solid one. remember, he never had a childhood, he was thrust onto the stage at 5 and never left the limelight, plus his dad beat them all mercilessly.

but let's not derail this thread with MJ fans vs MJ ex-fans who now hate him as an assumed paedophile. i'm sorry for the aside, just felt like sticking up for him is all, and not just because some of his music, like Billie Jean, Man in the Mirror, Don't Stop til you Get Enough .... is sublime, and he was a groundbreaker.... also because he has, and had, no way to defend himself. mud sticks, and the most famous people on the planet are an easy target. comparisons to Jimmy Savile are just not even almost fair.

i love the half-Michael figure and the leaning model, gonna watch the video later when i get some time off.

How have I missed this? Pure genius, needs to be a production run.

Quoted from bkbirge:

The kicker to boot is that it's set up perfectly and the audio syncs up very well. Some TWD's I've played have instant drains right out of the pops exit (right orbit rail), and Woodbury can't be hit. Each time I play this particular game (many times over the course of the past year), neither of those things have been an issue and the game is a flow monster. Took GC the other day and loved every minute of it.IMG_2862 (resized).JPG

Stopped in flat top johnnys while visiting boston for a phillies game and came across this pin by suprises. absolutely awesome machine. well done!

Hope to play this someday. Here’s something for all the haters:

https://www.huffingtonpost.com/charles-thomson/one-of-the-most-shameful_b_610258.html

TL;DR - MJ was the victim of the largest, bullshit witch hunt in modern history. A very well funded, hell bent prosecutor tried EVERYTHING possible - including tearing his house upside down - and still couldn’t nail MJ. NOT guilty, on all counts. And there were a lot of counts. An American tragedy.

Never would have thought of it before seeing this thread....but with all the music/band themed pinball machines, how is it no one has thought of a Michael Jackson themed pinball machine. Geez, if Iron Maiden has one, why not? I mean the guy had a music library that inspires all sorts of ideas.

Ideas like giving Jesus Juice to children and pedophile charges might have something to do with not having his own pinball themed machine. That behavior offends myself and plenty of others. Iron Maiden is a great pinball machine that works really well. MJ is a toxic theme that would have mixed opinions and would never be in my collection.
