Stern fights JJPOTC with GOTG
Stern fights CGC MBR with Elvira
Smart moves let's see who wins?

Quoted from ASOA:

And they crush all competition with Iron Maiden!!

#1203 10 months ago

Maiden in 2018 or 2019. http//www.blabbermouth.net/news/iron-maiden-announces-2018-legacy-of-the-beast-european-tour/ I know someone on here owes me a shirt when game gets made eventually.

#1204 10 months ago

So far 3 of these have emerged. Not all by Stern.

How about an XMen VE with movie art and callouts, with spinning Magneto disc?

No iceman ramp. No nightcrawler popups.

Sign me up.

With even nice LEs going for $5k or less now, I can't believe the market would support an XMVE.

#1207 9 months ago

How about STVE with the OG cast based on the films or the TV show, that gets my top pick followed closely by an Elvis VE based on the early Vegas era.

» YouTube video

Or maybe do a light retheme on the TWD VE coming and make it a zombie Elvis pin.

#1209 9 months ago

From what I hear STVE is for sure. On the other hand Iron Maiden will never see the light of day.

#1210 9 months ago
Quoted from John_I:

Man I hope its with OG cast, I like the layout and really enjoyed my time with STLE and while the new films aren't bad they just don't compare. I would like the 6 OG films or a dedicated Wrath of Khan VE damn thats a grail for sure. wishful thinking I know.

Would be terrible if it wasn't. Iron Maiden needs to see the light of day.

Sorry. Blame JT not me. If it does see the light of day it won't be the one he designed. Maybe Spooky or JJP will do one some day?

#1214 9 months ago

so what are the currnet rumors for next titles?

Pulp Fiction (Mark Ritchie title but delayed or cancelled due to licensing issues?)
Iron Maiden (John T title canceled? or switched to someone else so delayed?)
Elvira 3 (boutique title to be displayed at TPF?)
Tron or TWD vault? (maybe to fill space as needed on the line)
Stranger Things?
Led Zep?

#1215 9 months ago

Does anyone think that vault editions of DMD games are going to sell well enough at current prices to compete against LCD games? I'm thinking that most potential vault titles aren't going to do well unless they are priced at Pro or below levels.

I'd rather buy a vault Tron then any of the three LCD games they have now. And who's to say they won't do a re-do on a game.

#1217 9 months ago

I think Deadpool, Elvira 3 and Iron Maiden will all happen - just no idea of the order.

#1218 9 months ago

I want Iron Maiden and whatever Elwin is making.........

#1219 9 months ago

There will have to be a new abbreviated name for Iron Maiden. . Being Iron Man uses IM.

IMD. IRMD.

Not yet a fan of the LCD. I prefer the original (non-movie ripped) dots or JJPs implementation of it. Also not a fan of the "lil translite" look.

BUT the big thing for me is they can improve upon previous titles with some LED upgrades, toy upgrades and they're not on the SPIKE system (big plus).

Sorry but what means « boutique title »? Thanks

#1224 9 months ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

Smaller makers, not the big stuff like JJp & Stern. Or wherver Spooky fits into the picture.
Heighway, Dutch pinball etc

#1225 9 months ago

Mark Ritchie back at I had not heard.

#1226 9 months ago
Quoted from colonel_caverne:

I think that is what they were calling the stuff like WhoaNellie and PBR can crusher.

Stern has said at least 3 BIG games a year, likely a vault, and likely a boutique game.

Quoted from John_I:

I would rather a Motörhead pin and so would Lemmy but know it would never happen so Maiden will do.

#1228 9 months ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Yes and throw a vault in there as well, maybe a run of Walking Dead's with comic art?

Stern will do well with these titles, hopefully they can play catch up and avoid future growing pains, fingers crossed. 2017 felt like they rushed product out prematurely to follow deadlines.

#1229 9 months ago

My district pretty sure it was jaws and he heard it on pinside so it must be true

You mean AMH, TBL, Alien, Houdini...are boutique games?

Or more jetson, dominos, whoa Nellie..?

I did not understand if a game is called a boutique game coz produced by a « minor » manufacturer or it is a « lower developed » game?

Well I don't fully understand it either. Houdini & TBL are for sure boutiques. Alien I would consider one.
I don;t think Spooky is in that group but I have no idea honestly.

Stern didn't "make" Whoa Nellie or PBR, they might have produced/built it but they didn't design it.

I always thought of boutique as low run "specialty" games, which is why Stern can have a "boutique" release within their main lines that sell a lot more.

Could be. This term might have evolved as it was sort of a blanket statement for new companies.
Alien, TBL, Full Throttle, PBR, Jetsons, Domonioes, Whoa Nellie are all sure as hell low runs. But you can;t count BM66 can you that is based/desinged by Stern?

That was done with Kapow, and was supposedly a boutique game. It definitely had a low run.

Right but it's a Stern game; that;s what's confusing to me. Maybe it just means low run. So WWELE is a boutique game?

Haha. I don't think Stern intended WWE to be a small run, but that turd can't float. I wonder how many LEs are still in a warehouse somewhere...

#1237 9 months ago

Exactly! But now is motive a part of the definition of the term? That's when it gets wacky.

Is it not feasible they just remove or move some JT signature stuff, for example the Trudea gap, and remove his name from the design and just slap Stern Team on it?

Gonna go out on a limb and guess that even though he was most likely acting as an employee, if they use his work with minor changes, they might be opening themselves up for future litigation about profit sharing depending on what his employment contract said (if he had one). Of course, complete speculation, but if I were Stern (or any other business), his design would go in the incinerator and start fresh even if he had zero rights of any future claims. Not to mention the fact that the licensee (Iron Maiden or their agents) would have a cow if it were ever traced back to JT with minor changes. Wouldn't exactly be a shining star for their image/license.

Great post, but so depressing(Not really but) Why did JT leave, or ditch the design or whatever??

It was definitely not a planned departure. He was arrested for possessing child porn. His next court date is in Jan 11, 2018.

I just hope Elvira 3 won’t be like dominos or jetsons kind of games, called boutique games. They feels low developed or basic Games.

Batman'66 was technically boutique with Kapow, and extremely delayed software aside, wasn't dominoes or jetsons level basic BoM. I think that team knows they have a lot to live up to to exceed the design of Scared Stiff and are probably working hard to do that.

That's a very high bar. Good luck to everyone involved.

Bingo. All of the above plus the fact that Stern is not hurting for good selling titles means this game will never, ever see the light of day. Sad, but true. This game was never destined to be a big seller to begin with.

What does being a scumbag have to do with a pinball machine?

I watch scumbags on tv every Sunday and root for some of them.
