Who cares, I am looking for a Metallica if anyone wants to unload?

Quoted from Roostking:

Given Sterns recent duds, what makes you think tmnt is going to break the mold? What makes people think they are going to break the bank and release something amazeballs?

they did so recently with JP2

They can do it again..... or they can fail like we’ve seen before. I hope they deliver

NIB LE 199 aint going anywhere. Great taste though. Also my only pin lol.

Yes JP2 is a good pin, but sheesh, they have had issues otherwise, either content or quality..

#7205 7 months ago
Quoted from TreyBo69:

The only stinker is Munsters, and its problem is more the lack of content in the code which can be justified as Munsters was never going to be a big seller and the code team was never going to get a substantial amount of resources.

500 LEs sold out in 24hrs, Stern then made another 100 LEs.. Seemed like it was on its way to be a big seller. What killed the sales was the code team stating the code was almost done 2 days later.

TMNT it's coming.[quoted image]

What written proof do you have? I’ve only seen it for Beetlejuice.

#7207 7 months ago
Quoted from vireland:

Unless they're doing a Krull/Black Hole/Haunted House lower playfield with a real sized pinball, don't bother. The physics of a pea-shooter pinball are just wrong.

I don't understand why stern couldn't use a heavier 5/8" diameter ball to get the feel closer to how a 1-1/16" ball moves

#7208 7 months ago

There are so many good themes to choose from but it appears Stern insist on going with some ropey titles. I’m no expert, but Is this because they are relatively easy to license in order to maximise profit? Is this a road to false economy if the Pin flops and doesn’t sell?
IMO recent Stern safe pins were Elvira + BKSOR.
I know people love these themes but they wouldn’t be my 1st choice, not Entirely sure how well the sales have gone on both.

#7209 7 months ago
Quoted from Sako-TRG:

Not sure how well the sales have gone on Elvira3 and BKSOR.

Having no pro version hurt sales volume of Elvira's House of Horrors, but the game is very good and on its way to terrific as Lyman progresses with the code (version 0.92 released yesterday with more to come).

yeah Elvira is probably going to end up totally loved Walking Dead, except much rarer due to the models available. I'm still rooting for BK:SOR to become a sleeper hit like Tron or Iron Man, as the code gets better

#7211 7 months ago

BKSOR - Topper looks fantastic, best I’ve seen. The playfield and cab artwork are great but having watched numerous vids of the gameplay....it looks way too challenging for my expertise. A tough looking game.

#7212 7 months ago

Cuphead, Dragon Ball, West World, John Wick would be great!

#7213 7 months ago

We need John Wick!!!

All LE's sell out that fast, it's not a big deal. I suspect they increased the LE's because more distributors wanted the color version than the B&W version.

We don't

We're only following this thread so we can complain about the leak, then the low res early release pics, then the delay in official announcement, delayed stream, delayed code updates & an admittance of whatever the next QC issue is.

I cannot wait to be the first to complain.

Cannot

Wait

All I know is if they release some of these titles it will break my bank this year:

JAWS
Goonies
Princess Bride
Labyrinth 1986
Beetlejuice
Back To The Future Remake
Led Zeppelin
Tom Petty & The Heartbreakers
Grateful Dead
Bob Marley & The Wailers
Tron Vault / Remake
Walt Disney World "Theme Parks" themed pin

I'm curious if TMNT is Keith's 3rd game. If so, the probability of a well-designed game is far more likely than not.

TMNT is not Elwin. John Borg design, Zombie Yeti art package. MGC show games available to play. Code? Anyone know?

It's supposed to be Borg. Seems.a bit soon for KME to push out his 3rd.
That being said, tmnt, Zombie Yeti AND kme would be hella hard to resist. Borgs games tend to start to melt together for me.

I would love to see a pin with Keanu Reeves in it. Not just because of his movie status but because in real life he is a heck of a nice guy. The amount of work he does for charity etc is truly awesome. He’s also into motorcycles so he’s a cool dude. You never know, maybe he’d be up for involvement in a new Pin

#7231 7 months ago

Darn, I'm excited to know what Keith's what was working on.

I'm not trying to be an arsehole , if I didn't say it a lot of people would have , at least this way it is coming from a friendly place .

You may be on to something here. Since this thread is mostly people asking for the same titles with no new info, how about we have a little fun?
What is the one theme you don't want to see?
Kardashians definitely qualified. Oprah the pin would be a close second.

The View would be the worst pin ever.

I won with the most downvotes by suggesting Schindler's List:The Pin a few years ago. I'm pretty sure that would be a LOT worse than The View.

Sophie's Choice would be pretty bad, too. The wizard mode would be a killer.

On the flipside - a cartoony Borat pin would be hilarious.
