    I’m 50 years old but honestly I’m tired of all the talk of pinball themes from 70’s and 80’s. Sure I’m nostalgic for some things from my youth, but Stern has hit the point of diminishing returns on that whole thing. At this point, I say screw the Goonies, Jaws, old James Bond, etc. Instead, what’s something from this decade you’d like to see?

    Something with this sort of imagery.

    Infinity War or End Game. We need a game where you assemble an Infinity Gauntlet for multi-ball

    Quoted from DBLM:

    Infinity War or End Game. We need a game where you assemble an Infinity Gauntlet for multi-ball

    Says the man with a Thanos profile pic. Lol. I like the idea but I dunno if another super hero game is what we need.

    Personally I’d love a theme that’s been current from 1985 to present. Zelda. The theme could do well being converted into pinball form.

    From the last decade? I really hate to say this but, the video game industry is larger then the movies and music industries combined. So maybe we should look to video games for a great theme. What about something memorable like God of war, final fantasy, minecraft. BUT ultimately, as bad as it sounds, I think Fortnite could do well as a theme. Mass appeal, and you just shoot targets to kill enemies. You don’t need deep rules, there’s a video screen to fill in the blanks. Make it hard, fast, killer and leaving you wanting more.

    I can’t help that it is a great idea.

    Outside of super heroes, I would say John Wick, Fury Road, fast and Furious, and the new Star Wars movies are viable themes. As much as I want Jaws, if you need a new theme, go with the Meg. Over the top and not as bad as you would think.

    JOHN WICK, JOHN WICK, JOHN WICK give me a John Wick Pinball.
    I think John Wick would do well younger people will be attracted by the theme so will more mature pinball players as well as it's a violent action packed film with lots of memorable quotes.

    #7 5 months ago

    Curse of Oak Island, if only for the repetitive callouts.

    #8 5 months ago

    What about a Kitchen Knigtmare pinball imagine Gordan Ramsey cussing at you the whole time you play it would be hilarious.

    Joking aside another newer movie license I think that could work is IT.

    #10 5 months ago

    Other than well done Marvel output, most pop culture trends from the decade (re-boots and avocado toast) already feel stale.

    We have great original art, I’d love a reset to original themes in 2020.

    Could it be....? Could it be...?

    #12 5 months ago

    Not a theme I'd be interested in but a Pokemon pinball machine could be very popular and I think it would fit pinball pretty well.

    I think it'd be cool for a revisit of crazy artsy old themes (new themes but with the older style raw artwork like Sorcerer, Paragon etc. Generic in theme, but really cool art and make more modern playfields / gameplay.

    #13 5 months ago

    Black Panther or The Incredibles.

    #14 5 months ago

    It

    #15 5 months ago

    Firefly

    #17 5 months ago

    James Bond encompassing the Daniel Craig era....but I suppose that doesn’t count since they started in 2006.

    #18 5 months ago

    Assassins creed would be cool.

    #19 5 months ago
    Quoted from J-Freeze:

    Assassins creed would be cool.

    I'd buy that. Would look great next my Deadpool and Hobbit.

    I'm still shocked no one has done a Howard Stern pin. The possibilities are endless with the current cast of characters, let alone the wack packer lineup back to the 1990s.

    You are?

    #25 5 months ago

    He's got a ridiculous-sized audience in the tens of millions, and has for decades. Plus crazy personalities like Eric the Midget, Riley Martin, Hank the Angry Drunken Dwarf, Sour Shoes, Crazy Alice, Gary the Retard, Wendy the Retard, Jeff the Drunk, Baba Booey, Bobo (Steve from Florida), Elegant Elliott Offen, Hanzi...the list goes on and on and on. He's loved by many celebrities so you could probably get callouts from George Takei, Jonah Hill, Seth Rogen, Rob Zombie, Jimmy Kimmel, etc, etc, etc. There's a gold mine of recorded material from the show regulars and the wack pack, plus phony phone calls and music parodies. It could be an amazing pin.

    #26 5 months ago

    Road Warrior Mad Max would be bitching... it has a real pinball feel to it, awesome music.

    I’d buy that game everyday including Sunday.

    I’d also like to see John Wick, Godzilla, Aquaman but please no more marvel movies.

    Quoted from drfrightner:

    I think Fury Road would be better if only one movie could be used, but it'd be better to have all of them covered in one pin.

    #28 5 months ago

    My favorite show of the era: Psych - fake psychic detective.. lots of funny material to pull from. Theme would be easy to integrate w/ today’s lcd displays, and it’d Be family friendly and funny

    #29 5 months ago

    a theme that is also popular outside the USA

    #30 5 months ago

    Greta Van Fleet - a music pin the kids would enjoy and I would too... and then probably at some point switch the songs out for Zepplin and have my Zepplin pin.

    #31 5 months ago

    Gotta agree that Fury Road could be epic if done right, another "modern " theme that I think would be really good would be Pacific Rim, but time has probably passed on it.

    #32 5 months ago

    It seems like the pin community is always talking license. Are original themes dead? Is the thought an original theme won’t sell no matter how good it may be? I think most people agree that at least some of the ‘90s Bally Williams games are amongst the best and most desirable pins.

    #33 5 months ago

    Bob's Burgers

    #34 5 months ago

    I did not read the whole thread so this theme may have been said but my vote is John Wick

    #35 5 months ago

    The saw movies. Jigsaw

    #36 5 months ago

    Lemony Snicket's Unfortunate Events.

    Think of the toys. Including one that just drains the ball.

    #37 5 months ago

    The Last Airbender (Avatar) Animated series.

    I want a Guy Fieri pinball. You could go assemble your ingredients to become the greatest chef in Flavortown. Multiball would suddenly introduce Gordon Ramsey making you feel like a complete POS for missing any shots and draining. Truly a dream theme.
    Two of the most entertaining chefs out there and food.
    Where’s my drooling emote??

    #39 5 months ago

    I’d say go the video game license route with Resident Evil

    #40 5 months ago

    Firefly/Serenity

    #41 5 months ago

    Something in one of the countless other I WANT the "insert title here" pin to be produced, or the what's next from stern speculation topics.

    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    I'd like Pinside to make a "dream themes" sub-forum where all these threads could go and easily be filtered out.

    #43 5 months ago

    Quit beating around the bush! Harry Potter.

    #44 5 months ago

    I would say, all the themes I could ever want have already been made

    #45 5 months ago

    I would love an X-men days of future past pinball with Logan doing his thing. I also would love a “Rocket Man” Elton John pinball.

    #46 5 months ago

    80's Billy Joel.

    #47 5 months ago
    Quoted from midcoastsurf:

    Stranger Things

    Agree wholeheartedly. This seems like a home run theme. It would satisfy those who want a new theme and those who always want something nostalgic since it's a new show but set in the 80's. It appeals to both teenagers and adults. It has action, adventure, fantasy. The more I think about it, this theme was made to be a pinball machine. Plus, it would be the first pin based on a tv show that is an original from a streaming company, which would be a pretty cool first.

    My opinion is that "original" themes are mostly dead. Historically, some "original" themes were attempts to capitalize on licenses or popular themes without paying for the license. So whether it is a license or not, you probably don't want to pick an unpopular theme. So, yes, you could do a Haunted House theme without paying for a specific license, etc. However, I proposed this thread to focus on viable (and more recent) licenses.

    Ready player one.
    And good luck on licensing

    I think John Wick would do well younger people will be attracted by the theme so will more mature pinball players as well as it's a violent action packed film with lots of memorable quotes.

    I like John Wick as an idea. Reeves has had a resurgence because of the series. I've still only seen the 1st one but I think they all were rated pretty well and commercially successful. Could be a good makeup for the good game, but lousy movie JOHNNY MNEMONIC.
