    This was their breakout hit a few years back.

    Probably only Machine Gun Kelly is a better white rapper than Ninja:

    Before anyone asks, Machine Gun Kelly:

    #203 4 years ago
    Quoted from vid1900:

    DIE ANTWOORD for the win.

    Now we're talking. Vi$$er rules! My favorite clip:

    Too bad I have trouble understanding South African's accent - fortunately I get subtitles for the part in Xhosa.

    #204 4 years ago

    Bill and Ted for sure.

    It could have a phone booth you have to shoot that locks balls and then descends into the playfield for multiball. It would also have amazing call outs...

    Edit: In general, more 90's classic films should have pins and would get my $$ for a NIB pin. Diehard would be another one.

    You should give a listen to Action Bronson and Your Old Droog.

    THIS.

    They are both great.

    I was wrong about Metroid and Beavis and Butthead. THIS is the perfect pin theme!

    this has been mentioned a few times and I agree, especially since part 3 is coming:
    http://www.comingsoon.net/movies/features/123940-exclusive-keanu-reeves-talks-bill-ted-3s-time-twists

    The phone booth could basically be the file cabinet mech from xfiles:
    DSC06256[1].JPG

    It would also need to have a ton of subway tunnels underneath the playfield for teleporting to different time zones

    Mandatory: announcer for callouts HAS to be a really good george carlin impressionist

    Quoted from epthegeek:

    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.

    And it would have to have a MEESEEKS MULTI-BALL! CAN DO!

    #212 4 years ago
    Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

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

    I never would expect them to be great sellers. I wouldn't suggest they be made. I'd simply want to see one IF they were made. But two of the three have already been recently made into slot machines. While I know the slots and pins are separate entities, it seems many of the major themes crossover. I.E. Star Trek, Iron Man, Walking Dead, Family Guy, Monopoly, NASCAR (Still have yet to see a Simpsons slot machine)

    Human Centipede!

    #214 4 years ago
    Quoted from Jam_Burglar:

    Human Centipede!

    Now that s funny. I don't know what's worse : the story about creating a human centipede or the actors accepting to play in a movie naked with their face stuck into another one A hole.

    Really a good waste of life

    #215 4 years ago

    Yellow Submarine
    Chaplin JJP - Modern Times
    Inca - for the Machu Picchu bg and terraced toys or Maya/Aztec with rotating calendar on PF
    Good soccer theme- haven't seen a good one since WCS

    #216 4 years ago

    Silence of the lambs would be my choice for a new pin!
    I'd love a Ted Levine multiball..."don't to hurt my dog!"

    #217 4 years ago

    Not everyone's cup of tea, but I think the Saw films would translate really well into a pinball machine! Lots of traps, timed escape modes etc... The Billy puppet on his tricycle with that insane laugh...

    "I want to play a game!"

    #219 4 years ago

    Not that everyone would like, but I'd like to see...
    Call of duty (w.@.w)
    Evil dead
    Trailer park boys
    Beavis n buthead, as someone else mentioned. I know...not for everyone, but lota variety in that line up.

    #220 4 years ago

    Hate to be a copycat but Bill and Ted would be awesome and so would Harry potter. Alice in wonderland, as you know would be my all time favorite.

    #221 4 years ago

    How about a new Terminator pin that doesn't suck? They could use the new movie coming up. No offence intended to those who have either of the Terminator pins. Opinions you know.

    #222 4 years ago
    Quoted from tp:

    Beavis n buthead, as someone else mentioned. I know...not for everyone, but lota variety in that line up.

    I can imagine the call outs "Heh heh! Hey Beavis! I got an Extra Ball! Heh heh!"

    #223 4 years ago

    Escape from New York and Phantasm

    Quoted from zr11990:

    Why not just one based on the original movie?

    #225 4 years ago

    Rush or Iron Maiden would be two great music themes.

    Super Troopers!

    "you forgot to say ramrod!"

    #229 4 years ago

    Electra Woman and Dyna Girl for a superhero theme...just kidding.

    But a Fender Stratocaster themed pin would cost me money because it would link two of my main hobbies: pins and electric guitars. Would have more diverse music than a pin based on just one band, since each mode could feature a song by a different artist who plays a Strat (Sultans of Swing by Mark Knopfler and Dire Straits, Cocaine by Eric Clapton, etc.). Jeff Beck, Jimi Hendrix, Stevie Ray Vaughn, Buddy Guy, Hank B. Marvin...the diverse list of artists that play Stratocasters goes on and on.

    Ok - so for me in order of "must have"

    1. 3-Stooges
    2. The Munsters

    #231 4 years ago

    Goodfellas
    Clockwork Orange
    2001: A Space Odyssey
    The Life Aquatic With Steve Zissou
    Boogie Nights
    Big Lebowski
    Anchorman

    This is a Home Run.Instant classic.

    Ten Commandments. I'm not religious but that would be epic. Lots of cool stuff to duplicate in modes.

    #242 4 years ago
    Quoted from rcbrown316:

    Ten Commandments.

    The export model could be called "Bill of Rights".

    #243 4 years ago

    Think James Bond collection pin.

    First pick one of the actors, who all has 1 mode for each of their movies. Packed with toys and ball interaction.

    Screen like woz full of movie clips. Pin must have tons of movie call outs and music.

    Wide body, but the core playfield will be normal playfield wide. To keep the flow, and the extra room on the sides will be used for original ball savers and ramps and toys.

    Playfield will be fan layout mostly. With mode specific extra shots on top of it.

    It will have an acdc playfield. Which will simulate the rocket vulcano in one of the movies.

    Every Bond girl is hidden as an easter egg. For example if you end a timed mode on 007 seconds.

    1 special golden ball.

    Etc etc etc...

    If i ever have much money, i think i will do this one.

    #245 4 years ago

    This could be a fun theme.
    Endless amounts of call-outs and goals.

    You just fallen

    Truck accident

    The Banana Splits!

    #247 4 years ago

    I would love to see the orginal Die Hard made into a pin....or Blade Runner

    #248 4 years ago

    Ghostbusters, Legend of Zelda, Beetlejuice, Tomb Raider, Gremlins, Goonies. Wouldn't mind a Scooby-Doo.

    1971 film -Willy wonka and the chocolate factory, but doubt it...

    Actually spoke to Jersey jack through email about this. He claims he went to Warner Bros and they basically told him to look shy away from it.
