I know it would never happen but I would buy this in a heartbeat. With Brian Allen on the artwork. Now that would be sick.

But what is Munchkin code name for????

#10654 35 days ago
Quoted from SLCpunk2113:

But what is Munchkin code name for????

Maybe Batman 66? Idk what code name that had. My train of thought being JJP WoZ was the first LCD game, Batman 66 is Sterns first LCD game, and munchkin could be a wink at WoZ.

Quoted from John_I:

Yeah I finally watched Goonies last weekend for the first time. I was excited at first to see that it was a Spielberg movie and had some names I recognized in it. I mostly agree on your take. It is a real good kids movie unlike the crap they produce these days. For me though, without the nostalgia it was really, really hard to watch until the end. Without seeing it earlier in life, not sure you can say how well it has aged. Even still there seems to be a small, but loud group who really want this theme. I could see it working out for a boutique company that would be happy with 1000 sales.

I watched the Goonies when I was around five years old and love it to this day. We moved from the country to the coast at the time and it sent my imagination wild as a kid. Exploring the bays and inlets in my dad's little boat reminded me of the adventure in the movie and I was always imagining finding pirate's treasure on a secluded beach or sandbar. I also loved the movie for the edgy jokes. It wasn't just a soppy 80s kids movie and the actors were all engaging and memorable. "oh wow, a police chase! Awwww shiiii......"

Bring on the pinball with mechanical toys and One Eyed Willy's pirate ship.

U should make a new thread with all Stern the code names.

#10660 35 days ago

So that means we need to figure out what “Munchkin” is. Godzilla?

#10661 35 days ago

I hope so. Godzilla is dream theme status for me.

Could be on to something there.

"Munchkin is a dedicated deck card game by Steve Jackson Games, written by Steve Jackson and illustrated by John Kovalic. It is a humorous take on role-playing games, based on the concept of munchkins (immature role-players, playing only to "win" by having the most powerful character possible)......Players primarily progress by killing monsters, and level up every time they kill a monster.

Luckily James Brown was supporting so the day wasn't a complete loss!

Led Zepplin by Stern is rumored by Ritchie. No surprise there. I am betting the big surprise might be the artist .... Christopher Franchi. No proof and pure speculation but I thought it was interesting that a copy of Led Zepplin by Led Zepplin an official Illustrative Art Book was in Franchi’s media collection. Was looking at his Pinball Swami poster work and stumbled upon a recent posted pic of his dog Barlow. Definitely would be very useful if you were doing the art for a new Stern pin . Pure speculation but would be awesome if true!

I was under the impression Stern was done with Franchi because he doesnt know how to keep his mouth shut.

It’s a Dunkin‘ Donuts pinball... they will use the likeness of Todd Tuckey from TNT Amusements.

The slogan will be “Time to make the Pinballs”

#10680 32 days ago

how about some 'project' pinballs that were scrapped that never made it to production. iam thinking Stern is waiting for the hype to settle with the JJp GnR before they push out their next title.

#10681 32 days ago
Quoted from gregh43:

I feel like it would be strange for them to push out the next game right now when they're so backlogged on their 2 newest games. I understand that they run more than just the newest games at any given time but even releasing Avengers when they did got in the way of selling TMNTs. Yeah, they can sell either of those for the next few years but that initial hype has got to do some serious heavy lifting on total sales. I feel like their best bet would be to satisfy the bulk of the demand for TMNT and AIQ before moving onto the next one. But, of course, Stern would know exactly what initial sales vs. long-term sales would be and will act accordingly.

When it comes down to it, this current manufacturing bottleneck could really set them up in the long-term on the design/development side of things. Perhaps with a number of different games nearing completion and ready for the factory ahead of the typical schedule or at the same time.

Though I'm pretty sure the design of Elvira was sitting more-or-less complete for a while before they released it and that didn't seem to help with the code development side of things.

#10682 31 days ago

Throwing this out there, not sure if it was mentioned before. Animaniacs. Hulu is releasing a new Animaniacs series and would actually be an awesome theme.

The next Godzilla movie is Godzilla vs Kong. Now THAT would be an awesome pin. My game room is filling quickly but I’d make room for that one. I hope Stern does it.

#10686 30 days ago

I’d prefer classic Toho Godzilla on its own but I suppose I could get behind a Godzilla vs Kong movie pin if it’s done right...and the film isn’t a pile of shite haha

I agree. I enjoyed the last Godzilla, which was King of the Monsters. Not exactly an Oscar contender, but I liked it. Godzilla vs Kong could be awesome. And for a pin there are SO many possibilities.

The new Godzilla Movies are at least that true to the original that, on a pinball table, it propably would make little difference.

(I loved Shin Godzilla.)

#10689 30 days ago

Please please please don't let it be any more Marvel or DC titles.

I would like a Pee Wee Herman machine!

I like Godzilla, but have have never found any of the movies to be worth watching. Beginning to think Godzilla went to acting school with Adam Sandler.

Games based on single characters wil never work.
So jaws and godzilla soon gets boring.
If they can have the movie licenses with the actors it can work.
BTTF will do the trick, all the movies in one pin full with shots and toys.

#10694 29 days ago
Quoted from pinballwil:

Because of what?

I srsly got to dislike playing „scenes“ of a movie.
Better have a goal. „Defeat Godzilla“ is just that. (And I guess you get Mothra and Company as well.)

I like Black Knight.

#10695 29 days ago

That’s absurd, there are 17 monsters in the Godzilla franchise. So 17 modes to defeat each titan, team ups ala Deadpool with Rodan, Angurius and Godzilla JR with a “destroy all monsters” wizard mode finale would make an EPIC pinball experience. Make the modes non linear and stackable with multiballs...Jesus...how could that EVER be boring?

Believe it or not, Stern did have a Muppets license secured at one point and decided not to make the game when the Muppet Show reboot a few years ago was a flop.

Muppets information coming from someone whose handle includes "kermit" is 100% true in my book.
