For all of us getting the Venom by Stern, I welcome you to the symbiote’s club

I’ll be posting official lore and pics in here once we confirm all included characters.

What is the Venom pin by Stern?

Stern Pinball, Inc. and Marvel are collaborating to debut an all-new line of pinball games featuring one of Marvel’s most enigmatic, complex, and iconic characters, Venom – who’s ready to wreak havoc. Venom pinball games are available in Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition (LE) models.

Venom, an alien symbiote that bonds with various hosts, including former Spider-Man antagonist Eddie Brock, first appeared in The Amazing Spider-Man comic book series in the ’80s. The symbiote gives its host superhuman strength and agility, providing creative and versatile powers out of its material. With its unique and visually striking appearance, Venom quickly became one of Marvel’s most recognizable and popular characters. Venom has been an inspiration for numerous products including: action figures, apparel, collectibles, and now pinball – cementing its continual influence on popular culture in game rooms and entertainment locations worldwide.

Stern’s Venom pinball games will immerse players into the mayhem of this antihero’s Marvel Universe, featuring more than 20 characters including: Eddie Brock, Flash Thompson, Gwen Stacy, Peter Parker, Black Suit Spider-Man, Miles Morales, Riot, Agony, Lasher, Phage, Doppelganger, Venomized Hulk, Venomized Wolverine and Venomized Captain America. Venom’s arch enemy Carnage is collecting Codices to awaken Knull, the God of the symbiotes. Venom must stop Carnage by battling through his army of symbiotes and the Infected to prevent him from taking over the world.

Playing as Venom, gamers will select a host to bond with at the start of each game, altering the entire gaming experience both physically and digitally. Vertical pinball lock symbiote containment vessels located on both sides of the playfield lock and quickly release balls for constant frenetic action as players explore shots through the mechanically changing Agro-Lab and Life Foundation pathways. Players will bash an interactive, custom sculpted Carnage captive ball back into Ravencroft Institute for the Criminally Insane. Additionally, a surprise Doppelganger attack can swing into action at a moment’s notice, unveiling three uplift targets wreaking chaos.

Canvassing the Venom pinball game experience is a collection of hand-drawn comic book style artwork by renowned artist, Jeremy Packer (AKA Zombie Yeti). Depending on which host you choose, players will hear a variety of different styles of music throughout gameplay, including over a dozen music tracks from GRAMMY Award-winning musician Mark Tremonti.

Venom pinball games include Stern’s award-winning Insider Connected™ system, which enables players to interact with the game and a global network of players in a variety of ways. Through Insider Connected, players will be able to save their game progress through connectivity persistence, allowing anyone to become a (anti)hero as you advance through the game to reach the final wizard mode at the end, no matter how many tries it might take.

In addition, Insider Connected allows players to track progress, earn new game-specific achievements, engage with the player community, and participate in promotions and Challenge Quests. Insider Connected also provides an operator-focused toolset to drive location play through Location Leaderboards, build player loyalty, analyze performance, make adjustments remotely, and maintain the games. Registration for Insider Connected is available at insider.sternpinball.com.

Limited to 1,000 games globally, the highly collectible Limited Edition model includes a Venom vs. Carnage inspired full-color mirrored backglass, full color high definition reflective foil decal cabinet artwork, custom high gloss Venom-inspired “goo” powder-coated pinball armor, a custom designer-autographed bottom arch, inside art blades, upgraded audio system, anti-reflection pinball playfield glass, shaker motor, a sequentially numbered plaque, and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Stern President & CEO Seth Davis.

“Collaborating with Marvel has given us an opportunity to create this truly unique, engaging and dynamic pinball experience inspired by Venom,” said Seth Davis, President & CEO, Stern Pinball. “The artwork and animations pop.

*reserved for Venom lore*

Who is Venom?

Venom first debuted in issue "300" of the Amazing Spider-Man series. Below is a brief history of the two foes/partners.

The relationship between Venom and Spider-Man in Marvel Comics has been complex and dynamic, with a storyline that has evolved over the years.

1. The Origin: Venom's story begins when the symbiote, originally discovered by Spider-Man during the "Secret Wars" event, bonds with Peter Parker. At first, Peter enjoys the enhanced abilities granted by the symbiote but eventually realizes its corrupting influence and rejects it.

2. Eddie Brock: After Peter rejects the symbiote, it finds a new host in Eddie Brock, a disgraced journalist seeking revenge on Spider-Man. The symbiote's intense hatred for Spider-Man aligns with Eddie's own animosity towards Peter, leading to the creation of Venom.

3. The Lethal Protector: Venom emerges as a powerful and relentless adversary for Spider-Man. He becomes known for his brutal tactics, desire to expose Spider-Man's identity, and the constant threat he poses to both Peter Parker and his loved ones.

4. Anti-Heroic Phase: Over time, Venom's character evolves. He transitions from a pure villain to an anti-hero, often finding himself in morally ambiguous situations. Eddie Brock's desire to protect innocents and his complex relationship with the symbiote influence Venom's actions.

5. Team-ups and Conflicts: While Venom continues to clash with Spider-Man, they occasionally find themselves on the same side, teaming up to face greater threats. Their interactions have been marked by a mix of cooperation, conflict, and mutual understanding.

6. Legacy and New Hosts: Beyond Eddie Brock, the Venom symbiote has bonded with other hosts over the years, including characters like Mac Gargan (Scorpion), Flash Thompson, and even Peter Parker himself in certain storylines. Each host brings their own unique dynamic to the Venom and Spider-Man relationship.

The story between Venom and Spider-Man encompasses themes of duality, personal struggle, and the fine line between hero and villain. It explores the dark mirror image aspect of Venom as a twisted reflection of Spider-Man's powers and responsibilities.

Who is Venom's main enemy?

One of the main antagonists for Venom has always been Carnage who has his own offspring and apparently will have Carnage “drones” as enemies according to lead coder, Dwight Sullivan.

Carnage, also known as Cletus Kasady, is an extremely dangerous and psychopathic serial killer who becomes the host of the Carnage symbiote.

As the offspring of the Venom symbiote, Carnage possesses similar powers but with even greater levels of aggression and chaos. Carnage has a deep hatred for both Venom and Spider-Man and has engaged in numerous violent clashes with them over the years.

Carnage's unpredictable nature and brutal tendencies make him a formidable adversary for Venom, often pushing Venom to his limits both physically and mentally. The ongoing conflict between Venom and Carnage has been a central element of their respective storylines and has provided intense and dramatic confrontations throughout the Marvel Comics continuity.

Who are the other Carnage looking symbiotes I see on this pin?

There are five Life Foundation symbiotes who were “forced to be born” from the Venom symbiote. They are essentially his “children” and look to be part of Stern’s new pin (rightfully so since they show up in the 2018 Sony Venom film with Riot being the main antagonist).

Here is a breakdown of each of their individual powers. Think of them like Symbiote Power Rangers.

Remember, each were born after Venom was forced to create spawn after the Life Foundation captured Eddie Brock/Venom. They wanted these symbiotes to be their protectors as the Life Foundation tried to create their own version of paradise.

Riot:

Superhuman Strength: Riot grants its host immense physical strength, allowing them to overpower regular humans and engage in formidable combat.
Shape-Shifting: Riot can reshape its host's body into various weapons, such as bladed limbs or hammers, for offensive purposes.
Enhanced Durability: Riot enhances the host's durability, making them highly resistant to physical damage.
Regenerative Healing: The symbiote enables its host to heal rapidly from injuries, recovering at an accelerated rate.

Agony:

Biomolecular Constructs: Agony has the unique ability to form flexible and lethal weapons, such as whips or tendrils, out of its host's symbiote-covered body.
Enhanced Strength: Agony enhances the host's strength, making them more powerful in combat.
Acidic Touch: Agony can secrete a corrosive acid, allowing its host to melt through various materials or harm enemies.
Sensory Manipulation: Agony can alter the host's sensory perception, potentially causing hallucinations or disorienting opponents.

Phage:

Organic Tentacles: Phage grants its host the ability to create multiple elongated tentacles from its symbiote, which can be used for offensive purposes or to traverse across surfaces.
Enhanced Strength and Agility: Phage enhances the host's physical attributes, providing increased strength and agility.
Acidic Projectiles: Phage can generate and launch acidic projectiles from its symbiote-covered fingertips, capable of melting through objects or attacking foes.
Limited Camouflage: Phage can partially blend in with its surroundings, making it more difficult to spot its host.

Lasher:

Symbiote Constructs: Lasher enables its host to generate and manipulate long tendrils or constructs made of the symbiote substance, which can be used as versatile weapons or for grasping objects.
Enhanced Strength and Reflexes: Lasher enhances the host's physical capabilities, granting increased strength, speed, and agility.
Protective Shielding: Lasher can form a defensive barrier around its host, offering enhanced protection against attacks.
Genetic Memory Sensing: Lasher possesses the ability to sense and access the genetic memories of others, potentially providing valuable information.

Scream:

Sonic Scream: Scream possesses a unique sonic-based power, allowing its host to emit extremely powerful sonic screams capable of shattering objects, disorienting enemies, or causing widespread destruction.
Enhanced Strength and Speed: Scream enhances the host's physical attributes, including strength, speed, and reflexes.
Limited Camouflage: Scream can partially camouflage its host, blending them into the environment to some extent.
Wall-Crawling: Scream grants its host the ability to cling to and crawl on walls and other surfaces.

Who is the final boss, Knull?

Understanding Venom means you should also understand the overarching lord of the symbiotes, Knull.

Plain and simple, Knull is insanely badass.

He is an ancient and immensely powerful being who represents the embodiment of darkness and the primordial void that predates the universe. Knull is often depicted as the original and first symbiote, the alien species to which Venom and other notable characters like Carnage belong.

According to Marvel lore, Knull existed before the creation of the universe and controlled a living abyss known as the Void. He forged the All-Black, the first symbiote, from the darkness, giving him control over the living abyss and the ability to create more symbiotes.

Knull possesses god-like abilities, including superhuman strength, speed, durability, and shape-shifting. He can manipulate and control the symbiotes and even create weapons and constructs from the darkness.

Knull's power is further enhanced by his connection to the Symbiote Hive, a collective consciousness of all symbiotes, allowing him to command and communicate with symbiotes across the universe. He can corrupt and dominate other symbiotes, including those bonded to other beings. Knull also wields a massive symbiote-dragon called Grendel, which serves as his mount and weapon.

The reason for Knull's incredible power lies in his origins as a primordial being associated with darkness and the Void. As the first symbiote and the ruler of the Symbiote Hive, he has accumulated immense power and influence over time, making him one of the most formidable and dangerous adversaries in the Marvel Universe.

Below are images of Knull as the King in Black and then in his original symbiote armor.

#7 11 months ago

Not going to lie ,kinda intimidated by these rules .Seems a lot to learn but we’ll have nothing but time with Venom .I believe it will end up being our longest tenured pin in the end .We have been waiting for this day with saved progress I’m really glad it was this theme as it fits perfect .

#9 11 months ago
Quoted from dri:

Congrats! Looks like we have a few LE owners in there already including myself (paid in full).

Can we really have an owners thread, if no one actually owns it yet? To me dealers don’t count until someone has it in their possession. Just saying

#14 11 months ago

I'm in for an LE..

#15 11 months ago

In for an LE, signed the contract in blood, got a tattoo on my forehead that says "Venom 4ver" and paid in full *with a wire*. No CCs that could offer recourse to cancel the transaction. It's all about commitment. I also paid for everyone's breakfast this morning, and left a big juicy tip!

I think we can make an exception as the OP is clearly the most qualified person on the planet to own this one.

Premium here, would have liked an LE but at 15.5k GBP and the wife wanting a Foo Fighters, 2 premiums instead of 1 LE didn’t seem a bad compromise with the better half.

You have a significant other that asks for specific pinball machines - no LE can ever compete with that.

#21 11 months ago

I’m in on an LE. Here’s hoping it’s great! Probably my last sight unseen pinball purchase.

#22 11 months ago

First NIB for me. Pretty much a dream theme so figured this was the one to bite the bullet on. Been saving up since I started hearing the rumors. Was planning to go with Premium, but the LE just looks so much better that I decided I had to upgrade. It’s just money and you only live once, right?!

LE ordered for me in the uk. Really looking forward to this one

Epic owners post

I am in for a premium. Huge venom fan but the lack of unique translite plus small mouth venom threw me off. Art wise bigger fan of the pro but goin all in for the mechs.

Fun challenge is I for at least 20+ venom figures so will need to figure out who is first round of topper.

#29 11 months ago

Paid for LE day one

#30 11 months ago
Quoted from Charliew65:

Congratulations on your dream theme Op!! Most impressive owner’s club opening ever!

Agreed, I’m just hoping this club doesn’t get infiltrated by all the trolls in the hype thread.
Oh, and I was a day 1 LE buyer, big fan of Venom, and all comic based pins in general, I have 9 of them now since I have Venom and comic art Stern Spider-Man both on the way.

IMG_8013 (resized).jpegIMG_8013 (resized).jpeg
#31 11 months ago

I moved this over to the club section. I’m paid in full for a LE. Not sure when I’ll get it though. My distributor thinks late September.

#32 11 months ago
Quoted from Danzig:

I’m just hoping this club doesn’t get infiltrated by all the trolls in the hype thread.

With club thread rules they would be booted.

#33 11 months ago

FYI, a CAX organizer told me there will be about a dozen Venom's at next week's show. Proto pros and premiums. Likely the games from SD comic con. About 40 new Stern games there total, along with new JJP and AP games from local distributors. Book your flight and hotel room soon. Weather forecast is amazing.

#34 11 months ago
Quoted from friscopinball:

Just about a month away!

I would take any promises with a grain of salt. I'm happy if I get mine this side of NYE.

#35 11 months ago

Operator down for a pro and premium...........great job on setting up the owners thread here. Regarding the 'first machine': that was on loan from Stern for the weekend and had to be returned after the event I heard. Was very surprised we didn't get a factory friday video last week with Venom you know they're on there somewhere-

Was surprised to see an owners club since no one has them yet, but I'll post here in case it sticks.

I'm in on an LE, my trade-ins are already in my distro's hands so I'm just anxuously awaiting for the phone call to schedule delivery!

Shouldn't the owners' thread title be "We are Venom"? lol

Given the number of machines that have been played in person we are allowing the club thread to be open now. The hype thread is still very much alive for people that are not interested in owning this game but want to opine on things.

^thanks!

Played it (at SFGE), and ordered a Premium.

I thought the same but I’m guessing friscopinball is trying to keep it in line with the games tagline. We are Venom would certainly be more symbiotic of the theme

Probably my favorite art section on the playfield. Really well done center drain section.

Quoted from Danzig:

Agreed, I’m just hoping this club doesn’t get infiltrated by all the trolls in the hype thread.
Oh, and I was a day 1 LE buyer, big fan of Venom, and all comic based pins in general, I have 9 of them now since I have Venom and comic art Stern Spider-Man both on the way.

Nice! I didn’t know you were into comic pins, me too!

The "Shoot Again" insert being placed precisely where it is disturbs me slightly. I personally would not have put it right there. Might just be how my mind works though...

...a great overall art package nonetheless. I can see this ranking #1 in the overall Marvel pinball lineup quite easily, and overall, time will tell. I own AIQ LE and would swap for this LE in a heart beat (market values aside, just pinball vibes).

That’s an awesome image with Carnage in the background.

Yea, too bad about the shoot again insert, I really prefer how it was done on Godzilla with it being the eyes of Mothra, looks more organic.

Still this art package is one of my favorite and probably looks even better in person.

I like the shoot again insert position better here than how it is on FF where I can’t see it unless I peak over the apron

In on an LE as well from day 1. Not a huge venom
Fan but looks fun as hell to play!
