    off the wall I guess but maybe crazy fun, "Cheech-n-Chong's Up In Smoke".
    pick up Tommy with his balloon boobies, get deported for a free bus ride to a wedding, steal a T-Bird, escape Sergeant Stadenko (orbit loops hurry?), battle of the bands Alice Bowie "Earache My Eye" multiball or wizard mode, turn the Ajax Lady blue drop target bonuses etc. so many things happen in the movie very quickly, like mini chapters to inspire targets, modes, artwork.. then theres all the potential for hysterical callouts (byebye lardazz). hit targets to make "the love machine" (impala) bounce, curse that damn finklestein s#it kid.. none of it anything "politically correct" at all, but it sure could be an entertaining game.

    a "retro" that might be really cool, old EpicPinball's (PC game) "CyberGirl" table turned real.
    it isnt really complicated, was just fun to play and get her hair/eyes all lit up etc. a machine like that could probably be created to be very good and reasonably priced. someone else thought it worthwhile and converted it to virtual pinball, kinda says something in its favor.

    The Munsters

    #153 4 years ago

    100 percent new - South Park, referencing 15+ years of material, color dmd and no real game objectives. Well other than don't Kill Kenny.

    Original Theme always first and foremost is what I want...

    ... buuuuttttttt ...

    If I had to go licensed nothing better than Donkey Kong Country... and Jersey Jack would have to do it...

    I would gladly pay for an NHL pin.

    Forbidden Planet

    #157 4 years ago
    Quoted from thadawkins:

    My dream would be to see a Willy Wonka and the Chocolate Factory Pinball. Not that new garbage but the Gene Wilder movie. So many good ideas for that one.

    This. Jersey Jack needs to give Wonka the WOZ treatment, IMO.

    To make money, it would have to be Harry Potter. Lego could do really well too. Classic Star Wars lego would be pretty bad ass, but they could also do Lord of the Rings or Castle themes ones.

    If it was just me I'd like to see Twin Peaks or Beastie Boys pins.

    #159 4 years ago

    Can I say TBL? Eek.

    #160 4 years ago

    Xmas pin...everybody loves Xmas

    #161 4 years ago

    Nintendo or and 80's arcade theme

    I would sell my car for the money and take the bus if it looked promising enough

    Metroid!

    It's a classic, popular Nintendo title that is more mature and not so kiddy like SMB. The lead character has the ability to morph into a ball and roll around narrow passageways. Very pinball-esque. Also has dream-like, ethereal worlds, badass weapons, crazy enemies and ingenious level design. Look for yourself (from Metroid Prime 3) and tell me this wouldn't be a popular, fun pinball.

    Hot Wheels !

    #166 4 years ago

    They could make the ramps the same color as that classic Hot Wheels orange!

    #167 4 years ago

    Street Outlaws
    Moonshiners
    Just a couple of fun shows that should have their own pin.

    #168 4 years ago
    Quoted from Circus_Animal:

    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.

    I love it!

    "I see everything twice!" double scoring mode.

    An ever-increasing number of missions (loops?) to start multiball.

    An around-the-world hit all ramps game to increase the value of the Syndicate bonus. Score the Syndicate bonus by dropping all the targets in your base.

    Orr's raft for a second chance ball.

    Catch 22 kickback (you can only leave if you're crazy, and if you want to leave then you can't be crazy, so get back in there).

    Kinda surprised you didn't suggest Red Dwarf, given your avatar.

    A Lego-themed pinball machine would be great. You could have all sorts of structures built out of Lego as targets with the objective being to destroy everything on the playfield. Then after each game is complete you take off the glass and build a whole new playfield with different targets you create in different spots. I can't see how they could go wrong with that. Not happy with the layout of your current games? Well just design a whole new game every time you play it!

    A-Team

    #171 4 years ago
    Quoted from EvanDickson:

    Kinda surprised you didn't suggest Red Dwarf, given your Avatar.

    That would actually be a good use of an LCD screen, have Holly looking down at the game commenting on (bagging out?) your performance. And if you don't score enough points on your first two balls Holly gets replaced by Queeg.

    Just thought of another one... March Madness!
    Choose your team whether favorite or underdog and try to capture the championship
    bracket by bracket. All the greats would of course be included like Duke, NC, Mich St, Ucla, Kentucky, Syracuse and Kansas. However with well over 300 schools from 32 conferences participating EVERY game could be different because no two brackets would be the same!

    This might be the only game I would ever prepay for haha. Great idea. Somehow incorporating it with the real brackets that come out each year would be awesome too. This would need internet connectivity of course, or an update that runs shortly before the tournament.

    #175 4 years ago

    Sponge Bob. Would do well on route to attract new players. Anyone who collects pins and has a wife and kids, like myself, would give this pin a serious look for purchase. Great family pin.

    #176 4 years ago

    I can't afford a NIB pin... But if they made Either Metroid pinball (as stated above) or a new Doctor Who with the latest 4 doctors I'd have to own them somehow.

    #177 4 years ago

    Experts of Dangerous would make for an exciting / must buy theme ...or NOT!

    Rather a NHL pin for the real and only trophy in sports, the Stanely Cup!

    The Crow.

    #182 4 years ago

    A machine base on the Cartoon Network show Rick and Morty.

    #183 4 years ago

    I would love a pin that revisits Cyclone, Hurricane and Comet all combined into one pin.
    I real tribute to these titles all done in a modern way. Backboard spinner and Ferris wheel are a must!

    #184 4 years ago

    If I could have anything I want, whether or not it's possible...

    #1 - Futurama! (Would buy LE NIB)
    #2 - NASCAR (but wait until after Sprint leaves as title sponsor)
    #3 - The Venture Bros.
    #4 - Weird Al Yankovic (based on UHF or music)

    Would be interesting to see:
    - Ferris Bueller's Day Off
    - The Princess Bride
    - The Big Bang Theory

    Quoted from girloveswaffles:

    This 100times dot com. Even though the show is really new, if the creator of the show got in involved and did voice work it would be amazing. So many balls jokes.

    #186 4 years ago

    definitely agree about Futurama, that'd be a fun theme. as for the others I'd rather see Dethklok, Cheech-n-Chong's "Up in Smoke", and just maybe Frank Herbert's DUNE could be interesting.
    Alice in Wonderland might be a forever away, I like the American McGee style Alice artwork and game.
    other old PC game themes maybe fun, "Unreal", "DooM", "Carmageddon" (Death Race 2000-ish).

    #187 4 years ago

    Would love a Great Escape machine. Some type of tunnel with a jump shot over barbed wire. Steve McQueen died way too young.

    #188 4 years ago

    Police Academy!

    ...like "Ball Folders"?

    Yes if you want to put them into bankruptcy. These would make for horrible themes.

    #191 4 years ago

    I think Minecraft pinball would get a lot of kids playing pinball that might not normally consider it. For music theme, I'd love to see a Pink Floyd pinball with "welcome to the machine" as the attract music or Tool pinball machine.

    Too bad Stuart Scott is dead now his voice would have made the game.

    DIE ANTWOORD for the win.

    Quoted from vid1900:

    DIE ANTWOORD for the win.
    » YouTube video

    Dear lord.

    #199 4 years ago

    -

    Die Antwoord is as scary to you, as KISS was to your parents.

    That's what the kids are into. Well, that, and bath salts......
