    Logan's Run

    Sanctuary, Carousel, the Circuit, Sandmen, Runners, Box, monorails, time crystals, destroying the computer, etc.

    Quoted from TractorDoc:

    Strange Brew would be a Beauty, Eh?
    [quoted image]

    They could produce it in 3B to compete with Oktoberfest.

    I hope we don’t start down the N road... unless it is Hogans Hero’s, which has been historicaly given a pass due to comedy. Doing Nazis respectfully is a super controversial issue, even Sound of Music would have Nazi problems... War Movies are historic, pinbal is usually more light hearted, but you put war in a future setting with aliens and bugs... and war looks great! And Inglorious Basterds was the weirdest fictional war movie I have ever seen... but I digress...

    But Das Boot would make a good pinball... but maybe thats just my old submariner life showing a little. If not already listed-
    Run silent, Run Deep
    Crimson Tide
    Hunt for Red October
    K-19

    There can only be one... Highlander

    Stephen King's It. You can choose to play as a kid and run from Pennywise or you can play as Pennywise and try to kill as many snot nosed brats as possible!

    Quoted from Hammer1021:

    Championship pub: Rocky addition. Just imagine the call outs.

    I believe what you are requesting is a Rocky V pin.

    "In the ring...in the ring... Tommy Gunn only fights in the ring"

    "My ring's outside"

    This could be pretty fun to make....Hell track would be awesome under the glass.

    This would be a creepy fun game, it screams make me and it already has silver balls in it.

    I still say Warriors would be a fantastic movie to produce a pin out of. Think about it, it would incorporate elements from most pin themes that came before it. Roller skates, baseball, amusement park, the ocean, the call out warriors come out and playeeyay.

    #112 5 months ago

    I’ve always liked the idea of a Gremlins themed pin....
    But what about a pin like The Shawshank Redemption? Build up to a final escape from prison?
    Or Pet Sematary for a horror theme? Definite cool toy ideas!

    You could have the dj chick narrating your progress through the pin. Yeah, lots of possibilities given the variety of scenes in the movie.

    Hitchcock. If not Vertigo, maybe To Catch a Thief

    True Grit pinball would be amazing

    Quoted from TwoHeartedMale:

    For John Wayne, I'd take The Cowboys over True Grit. Could have a LotR type system since there are so many boys on the quest.

    #117 4 months ago

    Dreamscape would be another cool pin. I'm actually surprised it hasn't been remade. With today's visual FX it could be really mindblowing.

    Yeah but like pretty much all remakes it will lose its character. I say leave it alone like they should have left Robocop and Total Recall and countless others.

    #119 4 months ago

    Rocky 1 through 4.

    It really depends on the producer/director/writer. Updating something doesn't have to make it worse. I think the Westworld HBO series is miles beyond what the original movie (and its sequel, Futureworld) were able to do. Revisiting a popular show and updating it well can be done.

    I don't watch westworld but I agree that it can and has happened, especially when they re did old time films from the 40's 50's in the 70's 80's where u now have color and better sound and FX all that jazz. The issue for me lies within the acting/actors and ruining what I regard as better overall FX with CGI crap. Not that CGI can't be great but take The Thing, new version sucks as do most horror/fantasy/Sci Fi films I can't think of one re make that even comes close to the OG, ofcourse as with pinball its all personal taste.

    Either one is shut up and take my money!

    #126 4 months ago

    Yep and u can add a proper Stern Alien, Predator, Robocop, Total Recall, Running man, Blade Runner and Slayer.

    #127 4 months ago

    Blade Runner for sure

    #128 4 months ago

    The Labyrinth, Hellrasier, Dukes of Hazzard, The Last Starfighter which someone is making one, The ATeam, Night Gallery, ok need to think about movies now sorry, but yes on Predator

    #129 4 months ago

    Id like to hear this in a game, with the same Movie for a Game!

    Nothing like battling the Romans!

    #130 4 months ago

    I like the Hitchcock idea- but maybe ‘The Magic of Alfred Hitchcock’ or ‘Alfred Hitchcock Presents’ - big silhouette on the back glass. Famous B&W stills from Psycho- The Birds, etc. and each mode is a different famous scene from one of his iconic films.

    Also- in the horror vein- we need a new Nightmare on Elm Street pin. Also a Friday the 13th and a Halloween pin. Also- a Universal classic monsters pin- not cartoony. Black and White. I’d be all over that

    #131 4 months ago

    IMO Top Gun would make for an amazing theme. There could be a handful of good modes and some really cool toys, for ex, a jump ramp through a jet, or the the multiball start, something like T3 where the ball is shot out at you but from a jet, or like the rocket ship in A13, buy when it kicks out it has a similar speed to the lock kickout of indy 500

    Mad Max

    Yeah, I came in to say mad max series. I think that would make a fantastic pin. The movies are all really different so the modes can be really creative. The sounds are great as well. The sound of the blower when max turns it on in road warrior is awesome, even if it doesnt exist (supercharger that switches on and off that is).

    Quoted from Tomass:

    Why has no one made Princess Bride? So much you could do with that. I could hear vincini callouts "THE CLIFFS OF INSANITY!".

    "Inconceivable!"

    I'd be down for this...

    Two classics that would be smash hits - assuming the play action was good. Little Shop of Horrors or Rocky Horror Picture Show (a little ‘gay’, but cult classic and great tunes)
    I loved Forbidden Planet as a kid, but do not think it would make a particularly good pin.

    #137 4 months ago

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Quoted from Vegas9:

    The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

    Yeah this would be great, I'd like to be able to choose from the 3 main characters at the beginning of game. Angel Eyes would probably be my go to. The best Western theme out there for a pin by far.
