    I'm curious as to what kind of pinball machines my fellow pinsiders would design and produce given "Free Reign to do what they like. Some of the more recent Stern titles have been either band (Metallica, Ac/Dc), or film titles ( Star Trek, Iron Man, etc). I'm NOT going to jump on the WOZ bandwagon here either, cause going off the response it's garnered in the forum, well, it would be like , BUT if you were responsible for a company making machines for the market, that's, let's face it, is not even close to how it was in the glory days, what would you choose to get MAXIMUM interest??

    I was thinking along the lines of maybe a Monty Python based pinball machine. I can imagine some classic lines from the TV series or the films would fit quite nicely, BUT, i'm of that generation that grew up with that sort of thing. If someone produced a Justin Bieber or a One Direction pinnie i'd be tempted to go on a "Mission" to burn the lot

    Quoted from BigDan:

    I'm not even a fan of this game but I can see the huge potential of this license. Endless game possibilities with popularity that keeps on growing/ breaking sales records in its 18th year. I think a GTA themed machine parked in the lobby of theaters would see a ton of action. More so then just another stale Fast and Furious theme or some specific/ quirky 70's or early 80's theme that would only appeal to a very very small percentage of the public.

    I gotta say that i had completely forgotten about this little ol' thread i'd started way back then and really surprised at just how many posts i had missed. The GTA suggestion is (love it or hate it) probably one of the best to be honest. Put it this way, to have a pinball manufacturing industry survive well into the future it will need to tap into the youth of today, all the old pinnie heads will eventually shuffle off this mortal coil and we aren't getting any bloody younger. It may be that incorporating themes from the most popular home entertainment games will be the way to ensure that pinball machines survive.

    Quoted from trunchbull:

    And then dispensing with the other kids, like building pressure to send Augustus up the pipe or getting Violet to the juicing room before she explodes or whatever.

    OHHHH YEESSSS !!! Loving those ideas, lot's of scope for some really innovative toys/mods etc
