    I read a couple articles that say Rob Zombie is a pinball fan/collector:

    http://www.usatoday.com/life/lifestyle/2005-10-27-at-home-zombie_x.htm
    http://www.girlsandcorpses.com/issue10_sherimoon.html

    I'll bet he could design an amazing, dark horror themed pin. Devil's Rejects!

    Harry Potter
    Lego
    Peanuts (Charlie Brown/Snoopy)
    Dragon Lair

    One of my closest friends bought Rob's CFTBL from Herb at Fabulous Fantasies. Rob signed the play card.

    planet of the apes

    #56 8 years ago

    Village People.....think about all the non "PC" things they could put into it. (:

    #57 8 years ago

    I was going to say Back to the Future... but then I found out there was one... and I've never played it

    #58 8 years ago

    Fallout! Futurama. Any non-licensed themes like Whirlwind, Taxi, Junkyard, Funhouse, White Water, Fish Tales. You know, imaginative, fun stuff!

    #59 8 years ago

    Come on...FORBIDDEN PLANET would make a great pin! Robby the Robot, flying saucer, monster from the id, beautiful girl...outstanding music. If Jersey Jack made this, I'd be first in line!

    #60 8 years ago

    Dick Tracy would be an amazing pin. The comic ran for 46 years, and they've made a pretty sweet movie out of it (they should remake it now IMO). Plenty of mob bosses that could be the various modes. Casino's, prohibition, etc. There would be plenty to enjoy. Music from the movie was solid as well. The colors used in the movie were vivid which could be continued into the pin.

    Quoted from spfxted:

    Come on...FORBIDDEN PLANET would make a great pin!

    Rumours are that some one is making a few with that theme in the UK.

    Fallout, what a great pin that would make

    Anyone ever play the old PC game "Redneck Rampage?"

    A pin with a theme like that would be awesome. Think of the possibilities.... trailer park pop bumpers, a monster truck toy that runs over your ball when you lock it, special modes to collect moon pies and beer, fishin with dynamite video mode, "cuss pack" ROM, music by Lynyrd Skynyrd, etc. I would sell all my pins just to get one NIB.

    Pink Floyd w/ DCS sound

    'Build the wall' would be the running theme

    Toys - Flying Pig, DSOM Pyramid, Money, Time (Pocket Watch), Brick Wall

    #64 8 years ago

    Ghost Train would be a great theme for a non-licenced pin... not sure why no-ones done it yet... or maybe they have??

    Instead of replays it could dispense tabs of acid!

    #66 8 years ago

    +1 to the following themes already mentioned....
    Twin Peaks!!
    Harry Potter
    World of Warcraft
    Evil Dead

    and to add my own.... DUNE!!!! THE SLEEPER HAS AWAKENED!!

    #67 8 years ago

    Exorcist, complete with spinning Linda Blair head.

    Poltergeist, complete with lightable, scrambled tv set.

    #68 8 years ago

    some of these ideas are just great! Heres mine:

    Movie liscenced: Time bandits! would be awesome- have to collect the different points on the map....
    Based on a person: Bettie Page, I would buy that in a hot second!
    Band: Ramones! I saw one online that a guy made himself and it was awesome.
    T.V.: Strangers with candy or maybe Mad Men (but that may just be me wanting an excuse to stare at Christina hendricks...)

    #69 8 years ago

    Scott Pilgram Vs the World
    Death Race
    Carmageddon
    I know Fifth Element is already mentioned, but I would sell my left kidney on the black market for that pin.
    Sucker Punch could be a pretty cool pin

    #70 8 years ago

    Lego
    Pink Floyd
    Radiohead (for RascalH)
    Grand Theft Auto (Vice City or San Andreas)
    High Speed 3
    Taxi 2
    Major League Baseball with ALL 32 teams availalable for special backglass
    Black Keys
    White Stripes

    #71 8 years ago

    oh lego would be so cool if it was basically all lego blocks!

    #72 8 years ago

    You know I was gonna say LEGO, but thought, naw I am probalby the only one that would like one.

    #73 8 years ago

    I still say a submarine themed pin would be awesome! Here is my short list.

    Clue
    Harry Potter
    Nightmare Before Christmas
    Aliens
    13 Ghost

    All widebodys of course

    #74 8 years ago
    Quoted from Blackbeard:

    Exorcist, complete with spinning Linda Blair head.

    Poltergeist, complete with lightable, scrambled tv set.

    Those would be awesome!

    Quoted from PinWiz17:

    Clue
    Harry Potter
    Nightmare Before Christmas
    Aliens

    I would buys these as well! Good choices!

    #75 8 years ago

    to be honest, I would love a jim carrey pin (hey, ben heck loves paxton).
    I'd also love a tommy boy theme (I made this crappy start a while back, wish I knew how to use future pinball more):

    #76 8 years ago

    Men in Black (aliens, tommy lee jones is a badass, third movie is coming out soon)
    Wild Wild West (steampunk)
    Charlie and the Chocolate Factory/Willy Wonka
    Speed Racer (is there one already?)
    Ren&Stimpy

    #77 8 years ago
    Quoted from PinWiz17:

    A Clue based pin is what i want to see also I would like in a wide body

    CLUE is my favorite Movie EVER! I burnt thru several VHS as a kid.

    "I butle sir"

    #78 8 years ago

    Halo
    Gear of War
    Call of Duty
    Pink Floyd

    #79 8 years ago

    Resident Evil. Could feed action, sci-fi, horror appetites!

    #80 8 years ago

    Zombieland.

    #81 8 years ago

    Ichi the Killer! (or a general Japanese comic book horror theme aka The Ring, Audition, Ichi etc...)

    A nice mix of comedy, horror and style...

    Ichi_clips.JPG

    #82 8 years ago

    Motley Crue
    American Psycho
    +1 for Blade Runner
    +1 for Bettie Page
    A new 007 machine, celebrating the whole series and all the various Bonds

    #83 8 years ago

    Scarface? All the hip hoppers would snatch them up. "say hello to my little friend!"

    #84 8 years ago

    Avatar the Last Air Bender
    Nightmare before Christmas
    True Blood
    Halo
    Summer Olympics
    Harry Potter
    Assassins Creed
    Stephen King
    The Civil War

    I back that up I would love a Scarface pin.

    Godfather also would be up there for me also.....

    Quoted from kwiKimart:

    Radiohead (for RascalH)

    Good looking out.

    Not sure if anyone's played Super Monkey Ball on Wii. You're a monkey in a ball rolling around collecting bananas... sorta like a Marble Madness deal. It would be an easy pin theme to go with I think.

    #87 8 years ago

    I am thinking.....

    Ultraman....he'd have to defeat 8 monsters and gain his growing super powers...corny art but tastefully done....fun!

    Ice hockey/NHL...I know it's been done with the bobby Orr EM and Ice Fever but those pins are old...we need a new one with new toys and scoring DMD highlights....a red light topper for goals...fastest game on earth! Shaker motor for checks...and penalties (points taken away?) yippee

    Clerks....it would be respectfully done in black and white....maybe a mini video cam follows the action on the table and you can see stuff happen twice(like an instant replay). Lots of hi jinks going on on the PF...randal making wise cracks in the audio. A lot could be done here!!

    #88 8 years ago

    Ill have to go with "Saw" imagine all the gimmicks and toys!!!!
    And off course The Big Lebowski.

    #89 8 years ago
    Quoted from TheDude:

    That would be awesome.

    Maybe Dexter... one of my favorite shows.

    #90 8 years ago

    Sophie's choice, or the wire.
    EDIT - HEDWIG AND THE ANGRY INCH

    #91 8 years ago

    Iron Maiden

    #92 8 years ago

    Oh yeah and Futurama, comic/space/humor theme... HOW could this go wrong?

    #93 8 years ago
    Quoted from TheDude:

    Futurama would get my money. Clone Wars (cartoon series) is another theme I'd love to see.
