    Quoted from Nicholastree:

    +1 for Bruce Lee. Every generation has people drawn to his charisma. He remains a huge influence 50 years after his tragic death. Don’t know why there isn’t a pinball theme for him yet…
    And there’s definitely enough film footage and callouts from which to make a deep game.
    -dojo battle in the Big Boss
    -all the floor battles in Game of Death (including Kareem)
    -him vs Chuck Norris and vs Bob Wall
    -his teachings in Enter the Dragon
    -final wizard “the Battle with the Guards” from ETD

    Agreed 100%

    Each film could have modes on based on it's sub-boss, boss and other group/gang fights. Add weapon training with bo staff, kali sticks, knives and nunchucks. Advance through a belt ranking system with Insider. Start with white and advance to 3rd degree (or whatever level it is) black belt. Other accomplishments can include beginning as a student/apprentice until you are Grand Master.

    Video mode idea: Nunchuck ping pong. A first-person mode where you must hit incoming ping pong balls. Basically influenced by this amazing video.

    The sound and callouts alone would make this game a hit. Listen to the ETD soundtrack and it's perfect for a pin. The nunchuck "swooshing" sounds would be great for a spinner/reel type of shot, a la Jaws. Maybe have a sculpt of Bruce holding one end of the nunchucks, with the other end as the striking/spinner part. Attach a pin subwoofer and the sounds would be insane. Every punch, kick and scream would be unreal. Even if the modern martial art flick John Wick is released, you still can't go wrong with Bruce. With vintage themes already being used (Godfather, Classic 007, Jaws, Godzilla, JP), this would be a great license to utilize.

    Surprised no one mention Conan the Barbarian. (With Arnold)

    King Conan would make an awesome topper.

    1/13 Hard update for the would absolutely buy in preferred order after continuously mulling this over:
    Motorhead (ADD)
    BTTF (Moved up)
    Gremlins (Moved up)
    Top Gun (ADD)

    Thundercats (or He-Man as a secondary)

    Deep Consideration:

    Goonies (Moved from Deep Consideration)

    Revised again for 5/1 with a couple adds. No one cares but Make these lists happen! Cheers!
