    Say some upstart pinball company with no prior experience manufacturing pinball machines came on this forum and said they would be making a new pinball machine themed after some old movie, band, TV show, or even maybe some now defunct amusement park or restaurant. But they would need a substantial deposit to ensure you would get one. Paid in full would get you to the top of the list of buyers.

    So the question is what dream theme would get you to throw all caution to the wind and send off your pre-order money to somebody you don't really know because it is something you would have to have, and there is no way you would be able to live a normal life without it?

    Quoted from Wolfmarsh:

    For $250k I will orchestrate the build of a bespoke pin.

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    How about a Pinside Theme with all the big names as bash toys on the playfield.

    I'd be down for that.

    Quoted from InfiniteLives:

    carnivores vs vegans

    Kinda liking this one. But if it was a movie, I think we all know who would win.

    Quoted from PopBumperPete:

    unless i can play a game in a showroom and take one home with me that day, not interested

    Where's the fun in that?!

    Quoted from PopBumperPete:

    ALL the preorder companies have poor comunication skills

    I don't know man. I pre-ordered some furniture from Lazy boy and although what showed up looked like crap, the communication has been great!

    And as far as the remaining five large I just sent to Spooky for TNA that should arrive next week, has been great so far.

    #57 2 years ago

    This just goes to show, contrary to what others have stated, the pre-order model is not dead.

    In fact, it is still alive and kicking!

    #59 2 years ago

    We're going to see them next month.

    Quoted from Reznnate:

    So many bad ideas in a single thread. lol

    Isn't that the nature of this website? Then remember how many have gone on to become reality.

    Quoted from NimblePin:

    People’s Court mini wizard mode!

    Still trying to find that video again. Must have been taken down because of a Wapner infringement.

    #90 2 years ago

    I would think one of the established pinball companies must have that on the short list of big money makers for the not too distant future.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    Stern was 2 months too late on that one!

    2 months, 2 years, 2 decades or even more. That never stopped them before.

    #98 2 years ago
    Quoted from vid1900:

    I used to laugh when they were trying to push us to route Gilligan's Islands after 26 years

    It was a novelty when GI came out and we had one on location. It wasn't really taken that seriously as there were so many current themed games coming out at around the same time.

    We had no idea that 25 years later the whole industry would become a novelty for the most part.

    #104 2 years ago

    Indeed.

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    Being a car guy, Id pay a few bucks if a company could come up with a Christine Pin. I do like chrome and tailfins. . .

    I'd probably be willing to pay a little extra for a Super LE if it was themed after a Cadillac and not a Plymouth.

    Quoted from pinsanity:

    In all fairness though, you were prewarned in both cases and opted to ignore the information provided.

    More like manipulated.

    If only there was another pinball forum that nurtured accurate information and warnings, then it would be a lot easier to sort out what is real and what is a scam.

    #120 2 years ago

    As much as I'd like to see another Phantasm or even a Vanishing Point, they have already destroyed enough classic Challengers and Cudas for my liking.
    (original Vanishing Point used a Camaro as a stunt double)

    #140 2 years ago

    Looks like one of my dream themes is already a reality!

    Quoted from fosaisu:

    That art package leaves something to be desired. But you could always buy it and reskin it.

    I don't know man. $4500 would buy a lot of Jack.

    Quoted from JoinTheCirqus:

    Haven’t we had enough disasters lately?

    I was just thinking how cool would it be to have Earthquake in Sensurround with an all star cast. Then I realized we already got that covered.

    Quoted from fosaisu:

    I admire your Stars media console. My old rack is sagging and I'm in the market for a replacement, that could be just the thing

    Thanks! And sure, why not? With all the other useless crap people put on top of their pinball machines, it might as well actually be functional and serve two functions at once.

    Quoted from SirScott:

    Cagney and Lacey.

    How bout Judging Amy instead?

    Judging Amy, I'd say she's gained quite a few pounds since her Dirty Harry days.

    If I had a dream theme, it would probably not be music I used to listen to or a movie or TV show I saw a long time ago.

    Quoted from screaminr:

    VIC boys would like to see The Cramps.

    I saw the Cramps several times back in the day.

    Highlight of the day was when Lux Interior reached out and patted me on the top of the head because he saw I was having such a good time.

    RIP Lux. If there's a rock and roll heaven, you are one of the most entertaining there.
