Quoted from Ccondo:

If sticking with 80s bands, I’d love to see a Bon Jovi machine.

Now you are getting close. Start a topic ' Bon Jovi pinball speculation' so Stern can see it and the rumours start

#1453 1 year ago

Josie and the Pussycats

#1454 1 year ago

The Bee Gees

#1455 1 year ago

The secret bit is who is doing the code??!!!

No one has said that other than it would be Keith's ideas?

I'll be the first to say Lyman team leader.
And will release v1.0 when it ships.

If you think Lyman was only working on Bat66 updates for the last year you're nuts and Lyman loves rock 'n' roll

Oh shit !!! If this is right here comes another LE for me

#1463 1 year ago

How about a Sammy Hagar/Heavy Metal pin. You could use the Heave Metal artwork and throw some Hagar stuff in there too. Maybe 3 lock box miltiball, have a red Trans Am on the pf or have the ball climb a scaffold. The finale would have to be Heavy Metal Multi ball.

#1464 1 year ago

Maybe it’s been confirmed before but, Is Iron Maiden going to be a stand alone new design or will it share a theme like FG and Shrek?

#1465 1 year ago
Quoted from vicjw66:

Don’t see any reason why it would be shared. The only reason Shrek was made is because FG wasn’t selling and they had a ton of extra parts so they decided to make Shrek. Then FG started to sell. At least that’s the rumor.

Well it just seems that maybe Iron Maiden wouldn’t have a big enough fan base to be stand-alone. I guess we will find out.

What other recent pin has 4 flippers ?

Geez mate, calm down! Fact checking you and you get all snarky. If you keep wheeling out false facts, I'm going to call you on it.

#1472 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

Slayer? I didn’t say an existing title.

#1473 1 year ago

I hope it doesn’t have any upper or lower play fields. Stern always makes it feel like an add on to justify the Premium and LE prices.

False facts? Do you visit the Stern factory as much as I do? No... better get them facts straight hey!

I take a dump once a day. Doesn't make me an expert on toilets either.

Fun fact. Your last visit to the Stern factory. May 2017. You told people in the Deadpool thread that you were at the factory yesterday. Posting pictures of the production line showing Aerosmith getting built from your photos in May. Not a very credible source when you keep spreading false information.

#1476 1 year ago

No... it's going to be 'Fat Guys in the Woods'.

Archer.

#1478 1 year ago

Adhthe large
Man you know nothing and how often i visit the factory.
Best to keep your opinions to yourself and not be so nasty. Maybe its because you wont get out of your country down under to actually come visit here in the States.
Sorry if you seem upset but yes im involved and visit more than you realise.

#1479 1 year ago

So, these are all maybe's.

Iron Maiden with Archer layout.

Zombieyeti art package.

Keith Elwin's first game.

Lyman leading the software team.

666 LE's.

#1480 1 year ago

Not sure if Iron Maiden will be for me or not, I know like one song-"Run for the Hills". I also was not keen on Metallica when it got announced but the layout sold me and I actually remember all of the Metallica songs growing up. Now Metallica is in my top five machines for my collection. This game will have to have a solid layout and polished code for me to even consider, definitely would be a pro model as well if I did like it. Hope it sells well and is a good title for Stern.

#1481 1 year ago

I like to think I know quite a bit about music. The only maiden song I know well is flight of Icarus.
And as the previous post stated am also familiar with run for the hills. What other songs are likely to be included?

#1482 1 year ago

This one

#1483 1 year ago

It will be very interesting to see how close it comes to Archer. We will play the "what got cut?" game...

Check your ratings: Metallica pro Number 29; the premium is even worse rated bei you. probably you have to update

#1485 1 year ago

Hell!...I think I'm becoming an Iron Maiden Fan!

#1486 1 year ago

Where is the guy who owes me a shirt when I said this game would be made about 4 or 5 years ago, can’t find the thread, just curious

#1487 1 year ago

So to make sure I understand the Archer game we saw last year, that's being used in a new Stern pin? Is it the Iron Maiden or something else, or do we not know yet??

#1488 1 year ago
Quoted from flipper73:

I did my ratings years ago, they are way off! I have been lazy when it comes to updating my ratings. I think everyone's opinions change over the years, time to update.

My current top 5:

X-Men LE
Star Wars LE
Ghostbusters LE
Metallica Pro
Spiderman

#1489 1 year ago

So Iron Maiden up next then what.... Did Deadpool get put on the back burner because of Trudeau? What ever happened to Jurassic World-tons of potential? Not sure I am keen on an overpriced Munster's or Beatles from Kapow. Will we see Elvira in 2018? Deep thoughts

#1490 1 year ago

Oh the Irony ... No Pun intended I just noticed taht in 2016 Keith Showed Archer off at Expo and was wearing a Iron Maiden Tee Shirt. No wonder he got the call to turn Archer into this Pin. I'm not a IM fan but very excited to condsider a but if the Art-Layout and Code rock.

Dang, how Ironic, pun is intended, that when Keith showed Archer at Expo in 2016 and he was wearing a Iron Maiden T-shirt

I know I’m going to be hated on for this opinion, but here goes. Lol

In the United States, I cant speak for Europe, Iron Maiden is a Merch band ala KISS. Known more for the image of their mascot Eddie than any song they ever wrote. The difference is, and it’s hard to believe, Maiden had LESS success on the US charts than KISS. I get it, Eddie is a cool visual, and Metal !!!! Hell, I’ll buy one! But Iron Maiden probably wouldn’t sell anywhere near a Met or AcDc. Ok, let the hate begin. Lol

Also, I will note, on my visits to Europe, Germany in particular where they had very impresssive and expensive record shops, Maiden was held in much higher esteem musically.

#1493 1 year ago

I thought Leave it to Beaver was next

#1494 1 year ago

Was thinking why would Stern do two music pins so close together for release-AC/DC Luci Vault and Iron Maiden. Even with a month or so apart you would think they overlap a little. What if Iron Maiden is Stern's code word for King Kong or Jurassic World or something else? Stern is great at throwing curve balls. Same goes for Deadpool with the recent release of GOTG, I can see Deadpool in late 2018. Usually Music pin, Super Hero Pin, Movie Pin, rinse and repeat.

I think there is going to be some disappointed folks - I predict next game not Iron Maiden or even a music pin. I’m going to go out on a limb and say next music pin we see from Stern is not Iron Maiden either.

#1496 1 year ago

It's Iron Maiden.

Stern and other companies CLAIM to not listen to Pinside, but that's to keep you guys from realizing you can basically WILL game into existence.

good. hoping its a newer music themed pin so people under 35 will actually play it on location. AS, elvis, rolling stones and stern kiss all do/did bad on location due to old music theme. ac dc and MET never earned "huge" for any of our locations either. although they did better than the other groups. game play and rules are fantastic on most of the above (elvis is one of my fav pins ever), but casual, beginner, and not "pro" , tournament or league players are drawn to a game due to theme and theme alone. Those people drop the most coin on location. best recent STERN earners are ghostbusters (timeless theme all ages know it and still relevant), Star wars (same), Gotg (new theme, young people flock to it, even double flipper flappers). GOT (current, popular), TWD (Current, popular).
any new pin can have short earning power because its NEW, but ones that continue to earn have to be current relevance.

Nimblepin told me years ago he was willing Iron Maiden into existence. I chuckled but now if it comes into fruition I will be eating my hat.

Quoted from mnpinball:

Maiden is next. Worst kept secret in pinball.

Worse than all those people passing around the ghost busters pics in "secret"?

#1500 1 year ago

If Iron Maiden has the same layout as Archer it will be awesome as that layout is totally unique with so many cool shots.

If it's that layout and confirmed Lyman doing the code, dang, it might have to be LE!

Needs mirrored backglass as well.
