From Gary ....
Dear Ladies & Gentlemen
In my email two weeks ago I announced that our next pinball title is The Walking Dead. The Walking Dead TV series, about a Zombie apocalypse and based on the comic books of the same name, is soon to start its 5th season worldwide. This show continues to break ratings records for the over 120 countries in which it is televised.
I am more excited about this game than I have been about a pinball machine in years. This game captures the world of The Walking Dead with brilliant art and great playfield mechanical toys.
I love to shoot The Walking Dead playfield. The shots are great, and the ramps are smooth. Included among the mechanical devices and toys are a “Cell Block C” with cell doors that are bashed to open, then a Walker bash head inside, “Well Walker” bash toy, a playfield magnet, 3 bank drop target, a shot lane returning the ball to the shooter, custom molded Walker characters, decaled cabinet and speaker panel, and more. We have designed a new and reliable star rollover switch, always a favorite in past games. And of course all the playfield lighting is LED’s.
The Walking Dead Pro is loaded.
The Walking Dead Limited Edition is even more loaded with features, including a Crossbow ball firing mechanism, fire button in the lockdown bar, “Well Walker” guts, a 2nd playfield magnet at the “Well Walker”, a magnetic ramp ball diverter, “Governor’s Fish Tank” with illuminated head, a single bank drop target, spinning targets, traditional playfield supports and lock down bar, rust powder coated armor etc., unique decal art, and mirrored backglass. The LE has multicolor GI lighting, and certain inserts have tri-color control lamp LED’s.
We have designed a The Walking Dead Pro model with production starting next week and a 600 game The Walking Dead Limited Edition model for production in late October. The Pro distributor price will be the same as price established starting on August 15. We will tell you the LE price as we talk with you. As in the past, a deposit is required from our distributors with their LE orders, and there is an added charge to specify a particular LE number, should that number be available.
I have attached The Walking Dead Pro and LE photos, a Game Features matrix, and today’s Press release.
Did I say that I love this game? I do!

LE model 500-600 units (pending "gauging" demand)

I like it…….except for "dots"

Demand is gonna be through the roof on this one if they keep the pricing somewhat reasonable.

Is there gonna be a premium model?

Yes please, no photoshop copy and paste.....

#6 5 years ago

Nice! wait Greg Freres AND Kevin O'Connor.
Damn, this thing is gonna look great with both those guys working on it!

#7 5 years ago

Lyman makes it a clincher….

Lyman JR?

#9 5 years ago

Lionman Sheats Jr. is so bad ass, when Zombies bite him, they turn back into humans and join the Peace corp.

#10 5 years ago

This appears to be the website of Steven Jensen. http://www.f3studios.com/
Looks like photoshop stuff is likely.

#11 5 years ago

So we better be getting TRON 3. If the game turns out similar to TRON and X-Men I might as well trade out my Star Trek.

Where do they find these no namers..........

#13 5 years ago

Photoshop work if drawn can be beautiful, just don't want to see rough character cutouts and just pasted onto a background...yuck.

However nice hand drawn graveyard, destroyed cities, prison etc can be awesome..

when lord, when's it gonna be my time?

#16 5 years ago

They would be silly not to up the LE count to 800 based on the current hype.

#17 5 years ago

The link for pro is set up on Sterns site in games at the very bottom but still has tilt attached to it. I would say 2-3 weeks and they will release details.

#18 5 years ago

What will the LE cost though? If it's like Star Trek, then no way. It would have to come with an actual "Walker" in the cabinet for me to pay that much.

#19 5 years ago
Quoted from cleland:

Why would they lower the price??? Its either going up or staying the same..................

#20 5 years ago

Great news so far.

#21 5 years ago

LE and premiums should be built with ColorDMD. That would be a hot seller for Stern if they did that.

#22 5 years ago
Quoted from thedarkknight77:

So what was that like $8,200 delivered?

10,000 by christmas!

#24 5 years ago
Quoted from cleland:

You could get it for $7600-7800............So I heard.

#25 5 years ago

I need to see the playfield and artwork before I jump in.

#26 5 years ago

Thanks,
I wish Stern would adopt this model and stick to it...and really this seems too high without a full color lcd in each model.

Pro Model $4500 Delivered
Premium $6500 Delivered
LE $7500 Delivered

Quoted from cleland:

That's why they won't say they are going to make 799 this time because they know they can't get that many at 7800 after STLE.

Cutting out the overseas market for the LE's at that price too I would think.

I'd take a walkers lopped off head inside the cabinet Cleland

#28 5 years ago
Quoted from iceman44:

That would work, can't believe I'm putting this next to WOZLE...talk about yin and yang! Should be a good mixup though.

#29 5 years ago

What if they made enough LEs for everyone who put money down in the first, say 4 weeks after announcement?
No "799", or "x", and then stop after that?

#30 5 years ago

If you just came back to Earth after being on Mars for five years, you could never tell the difference between the early X-Men, Avengers, Metallica, Star Trek and now Walking Dead threads. They all read the same.

Luckily, me and my bank account wised up somewhere in the middle.

Great idea. That's exactly what they should do! Put the brakes on after a month and then its all premium.

#32 5 years ago
Quoted from cleland:

I'd settle for a wall of Zombie Head Tanks toy/target in the game.

#33 5 years ago

AC/DC LED Pro MSRP $5,595
IM Vault MSRP - $5,495

Usually distributors are 10-12% off those prices Delivered.

He did AC/DC premium translite and BIB package, and some other later games. He does very nice work.

#35 5 years ago

Stephen Jensen was on the art team for X-Men, and Steve Martin was on the art team for Star Trek.

I'd never heard of them before, so I just did a quick search on ipdb.org.

Hopefully this Lyman guy can write good code.

Surely the TV rights holders will insist on actual photos of the actors. So photoshop is inevitable.

But some of that Steve Jensen work seems ok.....except for acdc.

#37 5 years ago
Quoted from Chambahz:

Then it wouldn't be very "Limited" would it?

Great idea. Or make LE's only for people who pre order.

I'm sure but then again that's what the translite for, so we can actually change it if we want to

That Steve Martin can do it all. Actor, comedian, banjo player, artist... wow.

Quoted from DeathHimself:

Someone already emailed me to ask if I was doing one.

I hope the stock ones are so great that there's no demand for such a thing personally.

#46 5 years ago

I’m waiting to play it.

He's a wild and crazy guy!

#48 5 years ago
