    Anyone hear any rumblings?

    #2 46 days ago

    I know nothing but my predictions are...

    Next up: VE, maybe TronVE

    Fall (3 days after Expo): Elvira

    #3 46 days ago

    I was at Stern this week and saw a lot of Tron parts that had just come in......

    #4 46 days ago

    I love that they did a remake (BK).

    Would love to see something like this again. Like another pinbot.

    #5 46 days ago

    I know people have been rumoring Jurassic World around in the forums which i hope it turns out to be true because it would be an instant buy unless the game sucks.

    Stern rumors- Jurassic World, Jaws, Godzilla, Superman 78’,

    Confirmed- Elvira 3

    #7 46 days ago
    Quoted from Coz:

    Stern rumors- Jurassic World, Jaws, Godzilla, Superman 78’,
    Confirmed- Elvira 3

    I'd be interested in Jurassic World, Jaws, and Godzilla. Superman 78 and Elvira don't excite me at all.

    #8 46 days ago

    There is a Keith Elwin Catwoman rumor. I'd be very surprised if that is next though...

    #9 46 days ago
    Quoted from ercvacation:

    I'd be interested in Jurassic World, Jaws, and Godzilla. Superman 78 and Elvira don't excite me at all.

    From those rumored title i agree Jurassic World and Jaws would both excite me as games i would consider owning if done right. If Superman would get produced it would have to be a really good game to interest me as i like the theme but it's not a dream them of mine. Godzilla doesn't interest me as i already have the Sega version and never was an Elvira fan.

    Quoted from Coz:

    Stern rumors- Jurassic World, Jaws, Godzilla, Superman 78’,
    Confirmed- Elvira 3

    As much as I would like to see it, I think Superman is probably unlikely. Jaws is probably unlikely too; it's technically horror, and it's probably not mainstream enough to be a profitable title. Then again, they just did Munsters, so what do I know.

    I think Jurassic World is probably highly likely, Godzilla is probably a possibility after that.

    #11 46 days ago

    Murphy's Law says the next Stern game will be Elvira 3.

    Why? Because I really want one and my wife doesn't want me to ever buy another pin, so I need as much time as possible to wear my wife down before Elvira 3 is released. Murphy's Law says Elvira 3 will be next (and I will not get the time I need).

    Dude, c'mon....

    #13 46 days ago

    Yeah I'm trying to figure out how one of the most popular movies of all time isn't mainstream.

    And then I realize who cares why would I worry about that it's just a throwaway line in a post.

    but I couldn't help myself. And here we are.

    #15 46 days ago

    I would assume a VE is coming. Tron seems to be a likely candidate.

    Im just glad someone bought my Munsters Pro….

    Quoted from Marcdaddy:

    Is it that bad?

    #19 46 days ago

    Im a STERN kinda guy and I liked for the first couple of day, I even modded it out but it couldn't help with the boredom. After you complete Munster Madness the second time thru on ball 1 there is just nothing to do. I do like the Premium over the pro but the code is just not as deep as I like my games. Its all about WONKA now for me, love the game and cant wait for it to come out.

    #20 46 days ago

    Stern has ruined my life.

    #21 46 days ago

    I have lost interest in a any new Stern since Batman 66.

    #22 46 days ago

    People will be hyped for Elvira 3 after they confirm Lyman is on code.

    Sounds like Jaws isn't happening and I sorta doubt Superman does either (or it'll be comic book version Superman). Getting the license locked down for those old movies is often hard because you have to negotiate with so many different people. Movie studios are much better about having a one-stop shop. Basically a menu of the various options, tiers, and associated prices.

    Jurassic World is an ok theme.

    Godzilla could be great if the toys are there (in my head I picture a big Godzilla toy and a building/electrical tower being knocked over and forming a temporary ramp). I've long maintained that Jaws would be amazing if it had two primary modes, one where you're the human and one where you're the shark. Godzilla would be epic if it had a similar concept where you're trying to defeat Godzilla or trying to wreck buildings.

    Thought the rumor was a Catman art package on BM66 Premium?!

    Try buying Stern some lingerie, or maybe take a break from the norm. Instead of doing the same thing, try something exotic and adventurous. Instead of a movie, go zip-lining! Instead of netflix at home, go to an old theater and watch a classic movie!

    There's plenty of ways to inject some excitement into an old romance. You just need to use your imagination!

    With 3 pop bumpers clustered in the upper right corner, two ramps, a TRex head on a spring, and single standup targets over inserts spelling “Jurassic” and “World”... how could it possibly suck?!?

    Why did you leak that info? I wanted it to be a surprise so I would be excited to get a LE.

    #27 46 days ago
    Quoted from CrazyLevi:

    Yeah I'm trying to figure out how one of the most popular movies of all time isn't mainstream.

    Well-known classic film, certainly. Mainstream theme today, no. Universal tore out their Jaws ride years ago. Heck, I don't think I've watched the film in over 10 years.

    Is a Jaws pin desired by fans of the film? Maybe to some degree. Desired by the general public and in foreign countries? I doubt it. Sharknado or Piranah might be more relevant these days.

    Stern *usually* picks a theme they think will do well on location, has some recent relevance, and could potentially do well overseas.

    I don't see a Jaws hitting all those areas, hence why I think it probably won't be produced.

    [edit]: Wrong theme park

    #28 46 days ago

    Universal Studios.

    Anyway, they yanked Jaws to make way for Harry Potter, a more relevant and financially lucrative theme. Jaws was there forever, though, and synonymous with Universal.

    I’d absolutely buy Jaws. Shit, Funko just released the Jaws bobble heads guys. Jaws, like Willy Wonka or WOZ, transcends time.

    lol, they just put out the fucking Munsters

    Stern totally caters to the baby boomer demographic regardless of a theme making sense on location or abroad. That said, I think they'll do Jurassic World because the last games have been The Beatles, Munsters, and Black Knight, and Elvira is on the horizon. They need something mainstream for location play.

    #30 46 days ago

    I heard Tron as well.....

    #31 45 days ago
    Quoted from TrueJedi:

    Tell me more....

    They didn’t seem pleased that the boxes were all left open and scattered. Receiving must have been counting what came in. I saw lots of ramps with the neon already attached. Bunches of the motorcycles guys. I saw stack after stack of cabinet decals, which were new art and a big pile of translites also new art. It’s coming! I tried to sneak a picture but they said please don’t, so I didn’t.

    So... seeing as you're triumphantly spilling the beans here: were the translites pre or post Ghostbusters sized

    This is great news!

    Of course he could be all wrong about what he thinks he saw. After all, he is a bit Wacky.

    God i cant wait for the tron prices to crash and burn. The tears will be just as sweet as when monster bash remake was revealed

    Great post. Hmm...Tron VE with an LCD or not?

    New art? Interesting. The Tron reboot is a dead license so I wonder why they bothered with that.

    #40 45 days ago

    Black Panther would be nice.

    #41 45 days ago

    Crap. I was expecting to pick up a Wonka, but a Tron VE will pose as some strong competition for my next NIB purchase.

    #42 45 days ago

    List your Tron pro in 3, 2, 1....

    Quoted from Mrawesome44:

    Eh, not so sure. A lot of the value in Tron comes from all the sweet mods + chrome hardware.

    MB was a relative bloodbath, but it's good to know you're stoked that I'm taking a bath on my original that I put a ton of work into!

    You'll also be super excited to know the same thing is going to eventually happen with my TOM...

    However: I also had solid deals on my AFMr, MMr, Iron Man Vault, and AC/DC vault... all of which were brought back down to Earth by the remakes. Please note I did not relish the delicious tears of the owners of the originals in the process of acquiring.

    My point? In the end, things even out and I'll be just fine, but you'll still be that random bitter dude who gets off on the financial losses of fellow humans that share a common passion. Go you?

    #44 45 days ago

    Dont think prices will fall too much, I imagine they will be at least premium priced whats a tron go for now mid 6k?

    What's next after BK3 ?

    Higher prices.

    Part of me really really hopes you're just being a massive prick.

    Part of me knows that I don't usually think of you being a massive prick.

    All of me is extremely conflicted right now. I bought Tron NIB. Sold it. Bought a HUO. Sold it. And I have a feeling I'd very much like to own it a THIRD time, because I'm THAT GUY when it comes to Tron anything. *sigh*

    Quoted from aingide:

    Not really a dead license. Disney has a great TRON ride in Shanghai and plans to put one in at Disney World by 2021 for their 50th anniversary. Future movies are not planned...yet.

    #48 45 days ago

    I don't know if it is next, I don't know if it is coming at all. But, if Keith Elwin isn't working on Ash vs. Evil Dead then something has gone very wrong.

    Yeah, hold that thought until you see what the VE costs. With lit ramps and new art, it ain't gonna be cheap...

    Hoping for some new code that will load into our overpriced originals.

    I've had it twice and Tron's not deep. Not sure an art package could pull me back in.
