I think they are too busy playing catch up on orders. Heavy Metal is Nov-Dec and it is a small build.
Gives them some time to reflect and hopefully strategize.
I would not expect a new release to ship until X mas.
They can wait until Oct.

Quoted from JY64:

BM66 and the Beatles are Kapow games they seem to be the thing that jacks up the price http://www.kapowpinball.com/games.html

I heard Joe Kaminkow discuss this on a podcast recently. The price differential is all down to the cost of licensings the IP for the games. Beatles for instance is a very expensive license to obtain. He also discussed how insanely difficult it is to even obtain these licenses outside of just the costs (I remember him giving an example that he sent Christmas cards to a lot of key stakeholders at target licenses for years just trying to maintain contact and preserve goodwill).

I'm not sure if either of these were the actual episode, but here are a couple interviews Joe did with the Head2Head pinball podcast.

http://www.head2headpinball.com/2018/11/05/episode-68-joe-kaminkow-on-the-beatles-pinball/

In going down this rabbit hole, I refreshed my memory. I believe the interview was on the Super Awesome pinball show (EP4)

Quoted from DBLM:

With the rumors of something Marvel related my two guesses are something Infinity Gauntlet-related or Thor. If they make an IG pin and have a mechanism where you collect 6 balls representing the gems and lock it into a gauntlet mechanism that would be beyond awesome!
Could Led Zepellin be a code name for Thor? Immigrant Song and everything?

Don’t think that is the case given how long Led Zep has been rumored to be in the works for well over a year now in addition to the podcast last year where Steve R said it’s a grail theme for him and hinted strongly it’s coming.

#8904 45 days ago

Stern has a good relationship with marvel, they could essentially make whatever marvel pin they wanted. However, I doubt they will make a thor pin.

#8905 45 days ago

I can't envision them doing Thor. I mean, it's possible, but to me, even after Thor 3, Thor isn't "loved" in the way that Spider-man or Iron Man or the Hulk are loved. I think it'll be Hulk. I know he hasn't had his own movie recently, but he's got the most cachet (not a misspelling) of all the options. That or they could do Spider-man again I guess. Or comic book Avengers. I'd say I'm 65% sure it'll be Hulk, assuming the rumor is accurate.

#8906 45 days ago

Thor seems like more of a pinball FX kind of table

#8907 45 days ago
Quoted from Psw757:

Goonies is another that is high on my want list

Yep! Goonies and I’m in for my first ever NIB

#8908 45 days ago

I’m a little surprised that they may do another Marvel pin. It’s just a lot of Marvel. Haha. However, I’m sure they all sell well. You just have to wonder if one more Marvel pin will be one too many. There has to be a tipping point at some point.

#8909 45 days ago

They probably mean one of their marvels are getting vaulted lol or already has been (Iron Man)

I would love an Infinity Gauntlet themed game with Thanos as the main man. Love me some Thanos! Not a fan of many of the previous marvel titles except for Spider-man. I had a good time with that pin; "The power of the sun in the palm of my hand!".

#8911 45 days ago

So interestingly the blurb on This Week In Pinball about the next Stern title seems to have been deleted... the part about it being a Marvel theme definitely took a back seat to the reveal that it's potentially an Elwin game which pretty much makes it an instant buy in my mind, no matter the theme. I'm curious why the post was removed. Kaneda's post on FB about the next title being a Queen QS remake has also been deleted

#8912 45 days ago

the only marvel pin i'd be interested is something off the beaten path, maybe like a howard the duck or something. that would rock

#8913 45 days ago
Quoted from Krupps4:

That's exactly how I feel about the whole "old rock band" theme.

Well, except that they reached the one-too-many tipping point on that about 3 machines ago.

#8914 45 days ago

An Elwin Marvel themed game definitely has my attention, I guess we'll have to wait and see!

No arguments from me on that, but I’ve also never been much for rock band based pins.

& Kapow needs to get their piece of the pie also.
I can't imagine BM66 was any more expensive to license than other stern titles

#8917 45 days ago

Someone mentioned that it is time to have Horror games... I agree 100% with the idea of The Exorcist, Friday The 13th, The Omen, Fright Night,etc,... and for sports Pin, I don’t mind a Stallone’s Rocky someday either

I made a post about that a couple months ago. I own a Gottlieb Rocky and keep it mostly for nostalgia reasons, but I'd LOVE to see someone do the Rocky franchise justice in a modern pin. It could be awesome. And given Stallone's inability to let the character go, I would think they'd be able to get him to contribute some call-outs for the game. It would be SO COOL! Unfortunately, if the lack of interest my post got when I put it out is any indication, I doubt this would be a theme any of the manufacturers would think they could sell. Rocky

#8919 45 days ago

Elwin is killing it for Stern.

Makes sense next cornerstone is his.

I guess Led Zep got delayed.

-10
#8920 45 days ago

Sooooo glad they did stth instead of Goonies. That 80s shit doesn't hold up.

I wish jjp had queen and Stern had gnr. Each company will screw each of these licenses up in different ways. In fact, I wish Elwin was at jjp. I'd be broke.

Money safe for a while....

Stephen King Pinballs.. Christine, the Dead Zone.. could be all bunched up into one big game.

Well one of the guys in here who is usually 99.99% correct at what’s coming said a few pages ago that Zep is coming this year but there maybe something else before it.

Does that mean it’s delayed? Who knows could be Queen/quicksilver remake or something else but he did say LZ is a cornerstone.

Quoted from jhoward1082:

Meaning?

Stern will produce a Queen QS and persuaded Kaneda to take his post down for now,

or

Kaneda has realised it won't be a Queen QS and deleted his post?

#8927 45 days ago

I really hope the Queen rumor is partly true!
Yes I want a Queen pinball but no retheme please, a full featured Queen would be off the charts!

#8928 44 days ago

Combining the Marvel with the Queen (Codename) Rumour I‘d say it’s the „A-Force“. (The all female avengers team.)

#8929 44 days ago

ok, i'm predicting it's a captain america game. just a guest. but i would say no on ant man, black panther, captain marvel and thor. maybe a hulk game?

Just to respond/clarify - I'm assuming Kaneda deleted the 'Queen was next' post after he learned it was incorrect, the content on TWIP was deleted for a different reason.

#8933 44 days ago

Thor God of Thunder

Code name Led Zepplin
........by SR.

Na, its really gonna be -Rammstein The Pin -

Bummer if SR's pin is maybe getting bumped.

#8934 44 days ago
Quoted from RA77:

I dunno if it's getting bumped so much as he averages one Stern game every 18 months withOUT a pandemic, and it's only been 16 months since BK3.

#8935 44 days ago

I think they do a vault edition of something to get caught up on production, and then Zeppelin early next year

Quoted from yancy:

Zep was rumored all along for expo 2020 which is Oct so wouldn’t that be spot on for the 18 months? Stern also hasn’t really seemed to have slowed down too much either by the pandemic even though there was a stoppage at the factory

#8940 44 days ago

Thor 3 and Wonder Woman 84 with Franchi art would look incredible (and will probably never happen now)....If there is another Marvel pinball, it would be refreshing to see titles that are outside Stern's norm of the obvious big names.

#8941 44 days ago

Another Marvel comic pin would make sense with rumors that Zombie Yeti’s game being next. He did Deadpool and that was a hit. He mentioned saying that Gomez told him that the license holder really wanted him. How would they know him? If it was Marvel then they would. Im guessing its a super hero battle royale pin with theme of Civil War or Infinity Gauntlet or Secret Wars.

#8943 44 days ago

How about a villain pin? Marvel doesn't have the villains to keep up with Batman but a Venom pin would probably sell well and I believe when the pandemic is over it is supposed to be one of the next Sony Marvel movies. Maybe a sinister six pin, then again that gets pretty close to the Spidey pin anyway.

You had Magneto, Doom or even Galactus, to choose from and you went with Venom? No sir. No. Lol.
Spiderman pin already killed any desire id have had for Venom or Doc Ock unfortunately

#8945 44 days ago

Also, IF in some improbable universe Keith Elwin and Zombie Yeti made another Xmen game (Clairmont style still)...omfg id be in blindly.

#8946 44 days ago

I would love to see Zombie Yeti do a Bill and Ted with Keith Elwin. I know he has done some Bill and Ted art already and the new movie drops this month.

Translation, "the content on TWIP was deleted because it was for a different reason".....an accurate reveal that Stern didn't want up there! What other reason?

All we need now is MNpinball to NOT come in here and deny that it's a Marvel pin, with Elwin and Yeti!

Silence will be affirmation.
