    I do not think that word means what you think it means...

    #3 4 years ago

    I'd like to see them do something with Robin Wright in a more manly role.

    #4 4 years ago

    Why do you think it will get made?

    Yeah.... Why?

    #6 4 years ago

    i don't believe that not even for a second. i do not think that would be a strong pinball title.

    From the company that is rumored to be releasing another GnR rehash?

    #8 4 years ago

    Id be interested but this would be way behind 100 other titles.

    #9 4 years ago

    Now there's a pinball I would be interested in just for the theme......and that hurts me to say.

    #10 4 years ago

    Well, I know what pinball my wife wants next if JJP does do this title.

    #11 4 years ago

    If any company can do justice to this theme, it's jjp. That said, I hope they don't install a huge Andre the Giant bash toy

    The Eels, the wall, the spaniard, the giant, the genius, the fire swamp, torture, the man with 6 fingers, humperdink!

    “You killed my father... prepare to die.”

    #16 4 years ago

    Anybody want a peanut?

    JJP should throw in a plague coat.

    #17 4 years ago

    If this happens it will be the first jjp we buy for sure. It’s My my wife’s favorite movie. I wouldn’t even have a say but of course I’d be cool with it!

    #18 4 years ago

    Holocaust cloak

    #19 4 years ago

    I'm not sure if any of the old ladies around here even remember that movie.

    #20 4 years ago

    "Go away or I'll call the brute squad."

    "I'm on the brute squad."

    "You are the brute squad!"

    Consider me skeptical but interested.

    ROUS of course!

    Yeah. That's what I meant.

    We get Javelinas on the property from time to time and my wife calls them ROUS.

    This is my final dream theme... really hoping that Eric gets it if JJP is doing it.

    I love the movie, but it would not make a good pin. JJP couldn’t even translate the Wonka theme to pinball, they could never pull this off.

    I agree. Great movie but crappy theme for a pin.

    #34 4 years ago

    It’s a book/move with a bunch of memorable one-liners (call-outs), characters (lanes), and settings/themes (Scenarios)... with a pretty darn large group of fans. Sounds like a great candidate for a pin to me.

    Only after you beat my high score would I reveal that I’m not left-handed.

    #36 4 years ago

    I always thought this would be a great jjp title along with never ending story, labyrinth, and goodies. Feels like those family friendly themes that would look great in a jjp lineup. I think it could be cool and my wife definitely would.

    #37 4 years ago

    No brainer take my money now theme.

    #38 4 years ago
    Quoted from o-din:

    What is Stern doing? Ummm remake Star Wars for the 900th time, making another TMNT that no one needs, c'mon.

    I'm pretty sure the new GNR pinball will show videos of the band playing, feature all their best songs with awesome speakers, and much more. The original GNR game doesn't play the songs or videos. If you're a true GNR fan you want the modern version with the songs and awesome speakers. What does that have to do with JJP making or not making Princes Bride?

    I'm voting in my two cents right now... PLEASE DO NOT MAKE THIS PINBALL! PLEASE!

    If you want to do a comedy make Caddyshack, Vacation, Animal House, Blues Brothers, Airplane not Princes Bride.

    Of all the possible titles JJP could make I want to see them tackle MATRIX!

    #39 4 years ago

    The princess bride is perfect fit for JJP. I’m a huge fan and would save up for one if it was done right. I love the movie.

    #40 4 years ago

    I understand some people dont want this theme, but there are many more that do.

    And, yet, you forgot to put the prerequisite Pinside poll. I'd vote yes.

    #42 4 years ago

    If true, this will be the last title from jjp imo.

    #43 4 years ago

    Spaceballs! Anything but GNR.

    People said that about WOZ too.

    The movie still is so popular they did a parody of it in Once upon a Deadpool.

    If you don't think this would be a great theme, you must be a single guy, who is over 60 or under 30, and just generally out of touch. The immense popularity of this movie with women alone would make this a great seller. Every married pinball collector would have the go ahead to buy. Plus many men, myself included, also put this as one of their favorite movies of all time. There is also enough content in the one movie to make two pins. It would be an auto-buy at my house. The theme song was our first dance at my wedding. How is this not a top 5 theme for themes that haven't been done? What is better? Harry Potter? Sure. Superman? Maybe. Jaws? Nah. What else? Nothing.

    #48 4 years ago

    Agreed.

    I understand the movie has a big following with those that grew up with it but it doesn't seem to have built a new audience with a younger generation. Other 80's movies like Back to the Future and Ghostbusters have done this but that's rare.

    Below is a video where college students are asked if they know certain 80's movies. 4/8 knew The Princess Bride by just the title whereas 8/8 knew Back to the Future and Karate Kid. With how much a pinball machine costs to produce, especially at the level JJP does, I think there wouldn't be enough sales to make it a profitable title.

    JJP would probably sell 10x as many Back to the Future trilogy pins as a pin based on Princess Bride.

    Most college kids cant afford a pinball machine.
    This is not the demographic.
