+1 vote for JJP Star Wars

I also like Aliens, or Braveheart for SkitB

#104 7 years ago

I was thinking all week what a great pin "Nightmare Before Christmas" would make...Great call OP. I also would love a Harry Potter or Big Lebowski pin...Muppets Meh

#105 7 years ago

Archer would be awesome, but family friendly it is not...so pretty much zero chance.

#106 7 years ago

Willy wonka and the chocolate factory. The artwork and sounds would be amazing

#107 7 years ago

Battleship or WarGames.

#108 7 years ago

I would like to see a really good
Dark Knight theme.
Ghostbusters.
Nightmare before Christmas would be a big one and make a great theme. Very universal, and a lot to work with.
Toy story

#109 7 years ago

Nightmare before Christmas please

If stern refuses to do Iron Maiden, maybe Jack should!

Yeah, up the irons!

#111 7 years ago

Star Wars could be the best pinball theme ever!!

#112 7 years ago
Quoted from Thunderpants:

Something manly please

Manly like a superhero-theme or fantasy-movie-theme?

Not directy linked to this post, but i find it extremely amusing when grown men regard a fantasy-movie-theme with dwarfs & dragons, a hasbro-child-toy-theme or even a superhero-comicbook-theme as more "manly" than a true classic like Wizard of Oz loved by children and adults alike.

I actually enjoy watching The Wizard of Oz once in a while but i'd be kinda embarassed buying a superhero comic book or a Transformers toy for myself.

BIG BANG.........THEORY! Not BBB.

Naah neither does it for me. well a superman would work i guess.

I just think both WOZ and Hobbit are boring themes, only slightly better than an tupperware pin.
give me Zombies, electric guitars, Racing cars, women in bikini's, beer, humour, or space themed pins.

Im really sorry if someone felt i stepped on their favorite pinball theme or movie. i'm really excited about what JJP is adding to the hobby.
and for the record: im not homophobic. A Village People themed pin would be awesome

#116 7 years ago

Anything sci fi. A new doctor who or Maybe war of the worlds, combining the old and new movies would make it cool.

#117 7 years ago

Conan the Barbarian!

Actually, the first LCD backbox pinball machine, New Canasta (2009) plays YMCA as it's theme song.

#122 7 years ago

Someone posted this picture maybe a year ago. I think a themed pin of all horror movies with the main characters. Oh and I asking too much, sorry thought it was 2013 going into 2014 and anything can be done with technology today. Happy Helloween!

Quoted from PanzerFreak:

Based off of JJP's relationship with Warner Bro's (WOZ and TH Trilogy) I'm hoping for Harry Potter to be their 3rd pin. I know there were some rumors in the past about JK Rowling not liking pinball but I think after her, or whoever controls licensing, see's what JJP did with WOZ and the reactions people had playing the game at the 75th anniversary premiere that it wouldn't take much convincing to allow them to make a Harry Potter pinball machine.

You are correct! You nailed it on the head...the next title WILL be Harry Potter. JK Rowling likes pinball. She just doesn't like Gary or his company's product. She was impressed with WOZ and the paperwork has already been signed. It's a done deal.

#124 7 years ago
Quoted from mcluvin:

Walking dead would be great and really just don't see the show getting cancelled anytime soon. It could stay relevant for a few years to come.

Up until Sunday night I would have agreed. After Sunday... ouch. Worst season opener ever. So many things wrong with it. It's raining walkers? Really? Can I shake your hand Mr. Dixon? Ouch. If this season goes in the direction they started, the show will fall. Yes, it is my favorite show on TV right now, but if it stinks that bad, they will lose me.

So my theme perfection would be the Haunted House ride from Disney. Just because it goes back so far in my memory. But none of these matter. I'm sure JJP already has a pretty good idea what their next few games will be. Just no need to say it yet.

Yeah, I have to admit, raining walkers was a bit trite. OK a lot trite. I did like the storyline with Rick and the crazy woman, however. If the next episode is a "plague" episode, that will be quite cool too! There's hope for it yet, as long as they do return of the govna' properly and don't blow that.

#128 7 years ago

Hire Pat Lawlor and get something really original out there... Pinball 2000 crossed with something out of that guy's head! He indicated he had some ideas... let him do it!

Do it JJ!!!

Be seated.

Men, all this stuff you hear about America not wanting to fight, wanting to stay out of the war, is a lot of bullshit. Americans love to fight. All real Americans love the sting and clash of battle. When you were kids, you all admired the champion marble shooter, the fastest runner, the big-league ball players and the toughest boxers. Americans love a winner and will not tolerate a loser. Americans play to win all the time. That's why Americans have never lost and will never lose a war. The very thought of losing is hateful to Americans. Battle is the most significant competitions in which a man can indulge. It brings out all that is best and it removes all that is base.

You are not all going to die. Only two percent of you right here today would be killed in a major battle. Every man is scared in his first action. If he says he's not, he's a goddamn liar. But the real hero is the man who fights even though he's scared. Some men will get over their fright in a minute under fire, some take an hour, and for some it takes days. But the real man never lets his fear of death overpower his honor, his sense of duty to his country, and his innate manhood.

All through your army career you men have bitched about what you call 'this chicken-shit drilling.' That is all for a purpose—to ensure instant obedience to orders and to create constant alertness. This must be bred into every soldier. I don't give a f&ck for a man who is not always on his toes. But the drilling has made veterans of all you men. You are ready! A man has to be alert all the time if he expects to keep on breathing. If not, some German son-of-a-bitch will sneak up behind him and beat him to death with a sock full of shit. There are four hundred neatly marked graves in Sicily, all because one man went to sleep on the job—but they are German graves, because we caught the bastard asleep before his officer did.

An army is a team. It lives, eats, sleeps, and fights as a team. This individual hero stuff is bullshit. The bilious bastards who write that stuff for the Saturday Evening Post don't know any more about real battle than they do about fucking. And we have the best team—we have the finest food and equipment, the best spirit and the best men in the world. Why, by God, I actually pity these poor bastards we're going up against.

All the real heroes are not storybook combat fighters. Every single man in the army plays a vital role. So don't ever let up. Don't ever think that your job is unimportant. What if every truck driver decided that he didn't like the whine of the shells and turned yellow and jumped headlong into a ditch? That cowardly bastard could say to himself, 'Hell, they won't miss me, just one man in thousands.' What if every man said that? Where in the hell would we be then? No, thank God, Americans don't say that. Every man does his job. Every man is important. The ordnance men are needed to supply the guns, the quartermaster is needed to bring up the food and clothes for us because where we are going there isn't a hell of a lot to steal. Every last damn man in the mess hall, even the one who boils the water to keep us from getting the GI shits, has a job to do.

Each man must think not only of himself, but think of his buddy fighting alongside him. We don't want yellow cowards in the army. They should be killed off like flies. If not, they will go back home after the war, goddamn cowards, and breed more cowards. The brave men will breed more brave men. Kill off the goddamn cowards and we'll have a nation of brave men.

One of the bravest men I saw in the African campaign was on a telegraph pole in the midst of furious fire while we were moving toward Tunis. I stopped and asked him what the hell he was doing up there. He answered, 'Fixing the wire, sir.' 'Isn't it a little unhealthy up there right now?' I asked. 'Yes sir, but this goddamn wire has got to be fixed.' I asked, 'Don't those planes strafing the road bother you?' And he answered, 'No sir, but you sure as hell do.' Now, there was a real soldier. A real man. A man who devoted all he had to his duty, no matter how great the odds, no matter how seemingly insignificant his duty appeared at the time.

And you should have seen the trucks on the road to Gabès. Those drivers were magnificent. All day and all night they crawled along those son-of-a-bitch roads, never stopping, never deviating from their course with shells bursting all around them. Many of the men drove over 40 consecutive hours. We got through on good old American guts. These were not combat men. But they were soldiers with a job to do. They were part of a team. Without them the fight would have been lost.

Sure, we all want to go home. We want to get this war over with. But you can't win a war lying down. The quickest way to get it over with is to get the bastards who started it. We want to get the hell over there and clean the goddamn thing up, and then get at those purple-pissing Japs. The quicker they are whipped, the quicker we go home. The shortest way home is through Berlin and Tokyo. So keep moving. And when we get to Berlin, I am personally going to shoot that paper-hanging son-of-a-bitch Hitler.

When a man is lying in a shell hole, if he just stays there all day, a Boche will get him eventually. The hell with that. My men don't dig foxholes. Foxholes only slow up an offensive. Keep moving. We'll win this war, but we'll win it only by fighting and showing the Germans that we've got more guts than they have or ever will have. We're not just going to shoot the bastards, we're going to rip out their living goddamned guts and use them to grease the treads of our tanks. We're going to murder those lousy Hun c&cksuckers by the bushel-f$cking-basket.

Some of you men are wondering whether or not you'll chicken out under fire. Don't worry about it. I can assure you that you'll all do your duty. War is a bloody business, a killing business. The Nazis are the enemy. Wade into them, spill their blood or they will spill yours. Shoot them in the guts. Rip open their belly. When shells are hitting all around you and you wipe the dirt from your face and you realize that it's not dirt, it's the blood and gut of what was once your best friend, you'll know what to do.

I don't want any messages saying 'I'm holding my position.' We're not holding a goddamned thing. We're advancing constantly and we're not interested in holding anything except the enemy's balls. We're going to hold him by his balls and we're going to kick him in the ass; twist his balls and kick the living shit out of him all the time. Our plan of operation is to advance and keep on advancing. We're going to go through the enemy like shit through a tinhorn.

There will be some complaints that we're pushing our people too hard. I don't give a damn about such complaints. I believe that an ounce of sweat will save a gallon of blood. The harder we push, the more Germans we kill. The more Germans we kill, the fewer of our men will be killed. Pushing harder means fewer casualties. I want you all to remember that. My men don't surrender. I don't want to hear of any soldier under my command being captured unless he is hit. Even if you are hit, you can still fight. That's not just bullshit either. I want men like the lieutenant in Libya who, with a Luger against his chest, swept aside the gun with his hand, jerked his helmet off with the other and busted the hell out of the Boche with the helmet. Then he picked up the gun and he killed another German. All this time the man had a bullet through his lung. That's a man for you!

Don't forget, you don't know I'm here at all. No word of that fact is to be mentioned in any letters. The world is not supposed to know what the hell they did with me. I'm not supposed to be commanding this army. I'm not even supposed to be in England. Let the first bastards to find out be the goddamned Germans. Some day, I want them to rise up on their piss-soaked hind legs and howl 'Ach! It's the goddamned Third Army and that son-of-a-bitch Patton again!'

Then there's one thing you men will be able to say when this war is over and you get back home. Thirty years from now when you're sitting by your fireside with your grandson on your knee and he asks, 'What did you do in the great World War Two?' You won't have to cough and say, 'Well, your granddaddy shoveled shit in Louisiana.' No sir, you can look him straight in the eye and say 'Son, your granddaddy rode with the great Third Army and a son-of-a-goddamned-bitch named George Patton!

All right, you sons of bitches. You know how I feel. I'll be proud to lead you wonderful guys in battle any time, anywhere. That's all.

If that happened at every machine startup I'd kill myself. Come to think of it, that might make some people happy.

Quoted from PennSkier:

Already? Where'd you see it?

Actually, it's impossible to guess at JJP's game to follow The Hobbit, because it is so far off that the movie it will be based on isn't in even the earliest production stages yet.

Tasty!
Empire Strikes Back 1980
Star Wars Trilogy1997
Star Wars Episode I 1999
Star Wars 1992
Episode VII 2017

You forgot the 1987 Sonic Star Wars pin

Long ago I stated that this was my hope for WOZ. That it would convince JK Rowling to let JJP make a Harry Potter pin.

If this is true, then goodbye WOZ LE for me!

#145 7 years ago

With all of this movie theme non-sense... a perfect theme for a so-so movie with major FX would have been:

Battleship

That just screams a classic pinball game... you could have the sinking toy... alien invasion... a really cool LCD in the playfield could be put the use with radar, etc. LOTS and LOTS of things to be done with that theme.

I would love to see a Creepshow pin, but more realistically I think Star Wars makes the most business sense. Now that Lucas will no longer be the license holder, I think a pin without Jar Jar would be possible.

A The 7th Voyage of Sinbad pin would also be pretty sweet!

Jules Vernes maybe?
