This pin is not for me, but the art package is tremendous. Just classic retro, awesomely-busy-in-the best-way-possible hand drawn pinball art.
Im seriously stunned and surprised by this. The art, translite, old style pop bumper caps, playfield art just look incredible.
Those do look like the same bumper caps used on the original machine. Complete with Ace and Peter.
Not a fan of KISS, but love the hand-drawn art! And the homage to the original KISS pin. Bravo
Do we know who designed this one? I'm guessing Borg since it uses the "Pat Bottom" and his designs seem to take a lot of influence from Lawlor.
Who knows if it will be fun to play but from the looks of it they definitely got this one right!
I like that the pops will actually affect gameplay. A nice change from having them just for the sake of having them.
I really didn't care for this theme and all the speculation that it would be KISS kinda bummed me out but Damn this looks nice! Hopefully the code and gameplay can live up to the art!
So how many of you guys that swore off pre-ordering will be... pre-ordering?
Don't be shy, raise your hand.

I actually prefer the black trim/cabinet art of the Pro/Premium.
May need to rethink my buying strategy...
So is Gene's tongue a ramp or not? It doesn't look like it from the pics. So the head is just a static toy?
When did the band members become professional wrestlers? Some wishful thinking there on how they are drawn on the playfield.
So does KISS own the copyright on the art from the old Bally pin? I could see them leaving it up the owner to replace the bumper caps, but they're also using the spinner AND the same images on the inserts behind the spinner.
KISS feature matrix. Looks like you miss out on some of the cooler features with the Pro (floating ball, balls being spit out). But holy s*** this game looks like a BLAST!
Pro is missing alot of the features which I figured but its missing most of the cool things . Ill stick with my met pro as its probably the best pro
The cabinet looks insane...but I'm not sure insane in a good way?
The playfield however, wow. Even if you're not a fan of KISS, it's hard not to say that it looks incredible. Looks like a fun shooting game, nice and straight forward. I say this title sells very well.
It's just a shame they botched TWD, but even with great code that game plays ''off'' with its randomness. It will be interesting to see how this one plays out, especially with the code. Will it get the Metallica treatment? Time will tell.
Thumbs up for Stern on this one, looks great!
