BTTF... please.

He said the same thing about KISS. For many years. Guess what Stern made? An updated KISS machine.

That's too bad. A BTTF themed modern pin would kick ass in my opinion. BTTF is such an iconic movie which everyone knows something about, anyone has seen it. So, for us nerds it would be a great pin for home use and for the more normal people it would do great on location as it is recognisable.

Agree, 100% Killer theme

With the right approach and dedicated team with perfect execution

Easy windfall for whoever gets it

#6309 10 months ago

Better listen to Wakky or face Gary’s wrath. He’s said it over and over, isn’t anyone listening?? There will be consequences!

#6310 10 months ago

Gary talks and sometimes he fibs. I remember when WWE was released and it was on the line. Gary was asked in an interview what his favorite game was and he answered WWE. No way that was true.

When TWD was revealed, Gary was asked about the missing premium model. He said there would not be one and if you want full features, buy a LE. A year later TWD premium was announced. Had it been planned from the beginning?

So Gary can change his mind and there is no harm asking for a BTTF.

If you ever ask Gary whatever his favorite game is, it’s whatever is currently on the line. I’ve spoken to him numerous times over the last 20 years. The answer is always the same no matter how you try to phrase the question...

#6315 10 months ago

Jaws again

#6316 10 months ago
Quoted from J85M:

I think John Wick would work best with a shallower rule set, keep it simple but constant in your face gameplay, no scoops or posts to stop balls.
Ironman on steroids, drop targets mid table to ricochet the ball back at you, magnets to throw it back at you, kick backs to fire your balls back at you.
Have the continental as a physical toy to lock balls, mid playfield drops and magnets would be all the goons and assassins you have to fight and kill, you could collect weapons like in TWD, better weapons give you bigger points or double down shots required to complete modes.
Add some great art and lightshows and it would be an instant buy.
[quoted image][quoted image][quoted image]

Yes!! Yes!! a thousand times yes! John Wick would be a killer theme

Found some a stranger Thjng pics if you havent seen them

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Predicted Reveal date: 12/11/2019
Updating to only include “Cornerstone games” According to Special when lit, the goal is 4 cornerstone games per year. This year we have Munsters, Black Knight, and Jurassic Park. A cornerstone game follows the pro/premium/LE model. On top of that, if you are only measuring time between cornerstone games launched in the past 3 years (after switching over to LCD), you come up with 138 days between launches. That neatly works out to… next week. I am officially predicting a teaser video on Wednesday 11 December followed by a full reveal on Friday the 13th of December… 2 weeks before Christmas. It is theoretically possible to get LEs to owners by Christmas.
Aerosmith 1/4/2017 (128 days after BM66)
Star Wars 5/31/2017 (147 days after Aerosmith)
Guardians of the Galaxy 11/2/2017 (156 days after Star Wars)
Iron Maiden 3/25/2018 (144 days after Guardians of the Galaxy)
Dead Pool 8/3/2018 (131 days after Iron Maiden)
Munsters 1/12/2019 (203 days after Deadpool)
Black Knight SOR 3/25/2019 (72 days after Munsters)
Jurassic Park 7/26/2019 (122 days after BK SOR)
Next pin: 12/11/2019
Fingers crossed for a Bryan Eddy Stranger Things… and fingers crossed for a local MD arcade to pick one up for me to play!

I was only off by 12 days! Next Stern Pin due to be revealed in Early May. Math below.

Predicted Reveal date: 5/6/2020

A cornerstone game follows the pro/premium/LE model. On top of that, if you are only measuring time between cornerstone games launched in the past 3 years (after switching over to LCD), you come up with 139 days between releases. 139 days after the Stranger Things reveal is May 10, 2020. I am going to official predict a IGN article on the 6th of May followed by a full stream on Friday the 8th of May.

Aerosmith 1/4/2017 (128 days after BM66)

Stranger Things: 12/23/2019 (150 days after Jurassic Park)
Next Stern Pin due 10 May with predicted reveal 6 May and Stream 8 May.

No idea what the game is or who is on code.

#6320 10 months ago

Instant buys for me in 2020 is

BTTF
Jaws
Goonies

All of which in 2020 will celebrate big anniversaries.Goonies & BTTF 35th, Jaws 45th. Also despite that Gary claims no to BTTF I think it’s gonna happen by someone maybe not Stern but it’s coming. They re-did virtually all Data East games with the exception of TMNT & BTTF. Robocop & Tales from the Crypt I don’t see it happening. Guns N Rose’s celebrates a 35th anniversary in 2020 but that’s going to JJP.

Honorable band mentions:
Greatful Dead
Pink Floyd

55 year anniversaries.

While not celebrating an anniversary I believe Led Zeppelin is coming soon.

2021 is the year of Disney World theme park. Celebrating their 50th anniversary. I would imagine a new Tron or Tron VE.
Likely one of these Marvel pins will come out :

Dr Strange
Thor
Perhaps one more stab at Indiana Jones and not screw it up this time.

#6321 10 months ago

So would it be Borg on the next one?

#6323 10 months ago

So ninja turtles or LZ? Which is first on the line?

If release is May which seems really far away aka 5 months that’s a big gap!

#6324 10 months ago

I am going to guess The Matrix, since part 4 is coming out next year. I am not a fan of the movies but it’s my random pick or maybe Bill n Teds as also coming out. Just a hunch.

At the rate Stern are pumping them out there’s no way we wait until May for the next reveal/release.

I’d say March at the latest before we see the next Stern - rumoured to be Borg with TMNT.

You're forgetting Beatles from 2019 as well. We were treated with 5! new games this year from Stern alone. Way to go Stern!

Oh no not Borg.

#6328 10 months ago

Turtles? give me a break.....FFS
They’re only good for one thing....flushing down the shitter!
Someone please get a grip and put some adult themed pins together with a bit of substance....You got your reptile type creature thingies with JP2, great, but.....let’s move on.

I’m pretty sure the TMNT rumours came from the same source that first mentioned Stranger Things as well as distributors having them to ship yesterday and those both turned out to be true.

Jeezzz.....I’ve been holding out for a new Stern release - hoping for something cool - Mad Max - something maybe with Keanu Reeves - Tron Vault - BTTF - Retro 007 -
Jaws but talk of Turtles and Pokemon etc.....making me think JJP GnR which if they get the package right will have my cash.

#6331 10 months ago

Zep is a must have for me and many other geezers...

#6332 10 months ago

Trust me turtles fan base goes much much deeper then just kids.

You also probably think stranger things is only for kids as well.

#6333 10 months ago

Happy for you if that’s your themes, both not my bag. Fair enough....it’s not for kids only...and has a following.
I watched all Stranger Things, liked 1st Season only. From what I’ve seen so far of the pin...gameplay looks fine for Pro but Stern could have done better for sure with artwork. I’m not a buyer but feel sorry for those who will be disappointed and were looking forward to having a great all round package, true to the series.

Beatles was a 2018 release, I had mine on Dec 7, 2018.

Quoted from Psw757:

Yes, and they pushed back Munsters because of that.

So 2019 was Munsters, BKSoR, JP2, 3lvira, NST
In addition Star Wars Home wich is based on Spiderman home but still a lot different.
And the SW Reskin.

#6338 10 months ago

My money is Led Zepp for the next machine.

I laughed so hard at this post! Ahahaha

#6341 10 months ago

Instant buys for me:

- Any game that's been done before
- Any game that should have been made in the 90s

#6342 10 months ago

Is there a reason no one has done Superman?

#6343 10 months ago

Atari did a Superman pin.

#6344 10 months ago

Thanks, just checked........yeah, mid 70s
I guess Stern and others have no interest in re making?

#6345 10 months ago
Quoted from Sako-TRG:

Ataris sucked even back in the day. I hated all Atari's pins as a kid. They were too wide and just not fun. They had good licenses with Superman and Roadrunner (cartoon), but just awful designs. I only played Superman, Airborne Avenger, and Hercules. None of them I remember as being fun, and you rarely see them at pinball shows.

I wouldn't be against a Superman pin, but I wouldn't be super-excited about one using clips of any of the movies. Rather it be animated or something to be less dated.

#6346 10 months ago

I really don’t get TMNT either, but I’m probably 10 years too old to have any nostalgia for it.

#6347 10 months ago

Eh..yea...those remake movies weren't good, is it even relevant now? I feel like they missed the timing of it by quite a bit...

Based on the rumors of upcoming games, sounds like I can concentrate on finding some older games for awhile.

#6348 10 months ago

Stranger things is a great theme, but game didn't grab me. I'm totally excited for TMNT though. My money will go to either TMNT or gnr from jjp.

#6349 10 months ago

Do they have the license to do Top Gun? If they can time it with the movie release, it should please us older folks & newbies experiencing it for the first time.

Actually, they should do that will Bill & Ted’s too!
