    A Christmas Story. Skill shot to turn on the Leg Lamp. Drop target are the Bumpis' dogs. On the ball drain you hear "you shot your eye out" or "Soap poisonin!". Black Bart target. Bonus round for the "Major Award". Escape from Scott Farkus mode. So much potential.

    Creepshow.

    Has anyone said. . .Lego? Imagine how cool it would be to be able to build little things around the playfield. That Lego movie was pretty good, but a general Lego theme would be amazing and look pretty cool!

    You could even have translucent Legos on the backglass.

    Based off the book not the video game.

    1. Futurama with a ship (that rotates ala AF vault, that also has a gateway ramp for the loading/locking, and the rear of the ship's jet has blue leds that have to be lit by a spinner) and bender toy with a mouth that bashes like Elvira SS (dear God I could make this game with rules and flow that would take on MM).
    2. Animaniacs with a water tower for a lock (it tips over for the multiball)
    3. Monty Python's Holy Grail (huge rabbit lock, armless and footless knight AND a Knights of the round table multiball need i say more!)
    4. Three stooges. The pop caps have to be teal.
    5 Journey to Imagination the original Epcot ride with figment, Dreamfinder and his machine for locks. Limitless ideas for modes its all your imagination!

    Gameroom junkies asked people what would be in a christmas themed pinball machine and half the ideas weren't bad (42 minutes in):

    1. Lego - I agree ability to easily mod your own playfield no two games would ever be the same.
    2. Toy Story - AWESOME theme. Pizza Planet, The Claw, Sid's Room, The Toy Box, Al's Toy Barn etc.
    3. NHL Stanly Cup - Penalty Box, Play-offs MB, Slapshots, Shutouts, Hatricks, etc
    4. World of Warcraft
    5. Peanuts
    6. Call of Duty

    #108 4 years ago

    I was thinking this would be excellent especially with JJP full LCD treatment

    A modern NHL pinball machine would be great! Play-offs and winning the Stanley Cup would be so cool. Wizard mode: Achieving Gretzky Status?

    Super Troopers!

    super_trooper_car_ramrod.jpg 21 KB

    Oh yes! A Super Troopers pin could be great fun! Well... Once the boys get all that maple syrup in them, and they get all antsy-in-the-pantsy!

    Hell, Farva could probably support his own pin! "DO YOU NEED MY ASSISTANCE?"

    Quoted from toyotaboy:

    The movie or the cartoon?

    Ha! I would incorporate all 10 of the movies or how ever many there were. Haha!

    #116 4 years ago

    Everything I thought about was picked already ... so taking a new direction.

    -Motorboat Multiball
    -Money Shot Jack Pot
    -Something with Isla Fisher and Midnight Multiball ...

    They made 7 but it felt like 10. If you DID do it, it would have to have a bunch of sounds by michael winslow

    Funny story, I believe he lives in the area here. A friend of mine knows him and we could totally get him on board.

    Dragon's Lair is an awesome idea. I'd love to see the Bluth animations used to make a great JJP game... old and yet new at the same time.

    On a serious note: DARKMAN How could this pin not be on fire if it were spookys next project? It fits their theme and I imagine this license would be affordable.

    I know it's not the fanciest but a modern MLB based pinball game would be right up my alley and also feels like a no brainer. Wide appeal, MLB rules would likely lend itself well to pinball.

    Maybe 15 years ago, but I remember hearing the other day that baseball viewership continues to decline every year, while football continues to go up.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    This is true to an extent, NFL is the most popular sport nationally in the USA now and might even be a better choice for a pinball. MLB #s in comparison to NFL nationally have gone down over the past 15 years but the NFL schedule lends itself to national numbers with a weekly guaranteed time slot and only 16 games giving a regular season game a sense of importance, whereas a Saturday afternoon FOX MLB game is just 1 of 162 and it's not "must watch TV". MLB however dominates locally in primetime in the largest markets in the country for 5 nights a week. I also love baseball and want a pinball machine, hahaha

    Betty Page , You can have a Betty Bash toy and Pin up shots all over the place. Real eye candy.

    #136 4 years ago

    Catch-22. Ideally it should have a Glorious Loyalty Oath Crusade mode where you have to hit the loyalty oath target before you can make each shot.

    #137 4 years ago

    Bettie Page would be a great theme.

    Much better than fake-titted Playboy.

    Ooh. I just thought of another. Max Headroom! With the grittier look and feel of the UK pilot episode, not so much the cheesier american take on it.

    Phineas and Ferb would make a great theme.

    #142 4 years ago

    I REALLY want to watch that, but I feel weird watching a kids cartoon in my 40's

    Or Super Mario 66. go Pens! I hope we get an NHL pin done right one day.

    Iron Maiden would be the only one that would make me sell TAF & TZ to fund a LE. Although just thinking about that makes my stomach turn,so I kinda hope it never happens.
