Quoted from chad:

Stern sticking to the plan of April release.

Even though it might not be related, Iron Maiden is starting their Legacy of the beast tour in the end of May, so would also fit nice with the a timeframe for delivering pinball machines.

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

You may think what you want but it's still a normal cornerstone title. (Wich is basically a "new" game you can order from your favorite pinball retailer.)
It's definately not a usual Stern game but then again, it was the 30th anniversary and with JJP expanding to the higher price market, why shouldn't Stern? Batman Premium is still available, not limited, made inside Stern so what exactly is 'boutique' here?
Non-Cornerstone are Vaults and Titles you don't buy via Stern itself and/ or usual retailers like Pabst Blue Ribbon, Supreme, even Spiderman Home in a way.

So now you're redefining Whoa Nellie as NOT a boutique (when it is/was), because you could buy it from Stern and usual retailers? They probably still have some in the warehouse.

I define Boutique as a smaller run, original title.

Quoted from vireland:

I hear you and hope you're right because I WANT this pin. But with Stern's recent track record of the last few years, I will worry about ALL of it until it's out the doors and into real-life. I will believe nothing Stern says, prints, or promises about future code or upcoming features. I will live in the here and now. The only safe place for a Stern buyer these days.

At this point you'd be nuts to buy a machine from any seller before you've seen it, played it, and are happy with what you'll actually be getting. Not that that was ever logical behavior, but there's no excuse for it in 2018.

Quoted from Wakky:

De ninguna manera estúpido no rentable tema de pinball ... especula todo lo que quieras todo este empuje y publicación no lo hará realidad. Stern es mucho más inteligente que eso

I do not speculate, it is my wish. If it were to become a reality, you would give me an apology. Let's wait until the end of the year ....

http://www.sternpinball.com/games/whoa-nellie/whoa

Whoa Nellie was released in 2011 when there was no 'boutique' (no Spooky, no Zidware..) in terms of pinball.
So altough it -from todays standpoint- seems 'boutique' it then just was 'kinda odd' and produced, marketed and sold the usual way. (And would it have taken off there would be thousands of this game around.)

And we were talking about 'cornerstone titles' wich as well is a term/ part of a mixed business modell Stern didn't have in 2011.

So the assumption that Whoa Nellie is a boutique game is basically the same as:
"Is a horse in hindsight just an oldtimer (car)?"

come on garry, just anounce the jurassic world pin allready!

The rumor I have heard is that there will be no Elvira 3 from Stern

#1923 1 year ago

Does this mean Deeproot are doing it?

#1924 1 year ago
Quoted from Shapeshifter:

Sure seems like it with Nordman jumping Stern's ship to Deeproot. That'll be interesting.

#1925 1 year ago

Deeproot does Elvira
Sounds like a weird p.rn flick

Japanese, for sure.

#1927 1 year ago

I heard it was going to be Hello Kitty

#1928 1 year ago

Luci then ?... Maybe TPF will hold some clues.

#1929 1 year ago
Quoted from karl:

Stern will be doing Iron Maiden, Deadpool and Munsters. Throw a Vault Edition in the mix and that's 2018. Elvira 3 is off the radar now.

If Munsters is correct - I'm in.

#1931 1 year ago

Stern...

They still haven’t finished my Aerosmith

They somehow made a Star Wars pin I don’t want

They coded the beautiful GOTG so poorly I won’t buy it

They lost rights to Pulp Fiction (rumored)

They lost the rights to Elvira (rumored)

They are making the most white trash dirtbag rock band pin ever (Iron Maiden)

If Munesters is true I bet it’s kapow collab. They like to make expensive old shit.

Why am I even here?

Oh yeah, to see when they update Aerosmith & to follow the CGC unboxing threads/updates.

#1932 1 year ago

I thought Beatles was the next rumored Kapow?

#1933 1 year ago
Quoted from NoQuarters:

If Munsters is correct - I'm in.

Same here, i want The Munsters and Jurassic Park!

Stern seminar at TPF starting now. https://www.twitch.tv/texas_pinball_seminar

#1938 1 year ago

The dumbest Stern-est seminar setup. All the other ones had the stage and an inset with the other screen. Gomez is talking and pointing at a screen non-stop that's nowhere on the screen. Dumb, but very Stern. All the other manufacturers could manage to do this presentation stage right, but not Stern. Sigh.

#1939 1 year ago

Watch Stern presentation on Sterns Facebook page if you want to see the slides.

https://m.facebook.com/sternpinball/

Thanks. I have that open now, but it's stupid they couldn't manage to inset that like all the manufacturers have.

Some highlights of his speech:
Nice that Brian Eddy is coming on at Stern.

Iron Maiden reveal "maybe in April" and "April, I think."

Elvira 3 will happen, but they need a software engineer to work on it.

They plan on doing another Super LE.

Gomez made a wink-wink reference to a Lord of the Rings vault edition in the process of answering a question about putting LCDs in vaults.

Stern will get more technical information out to end users on Spike 2 node boards to enable better diagnosis and repair in the field.

After talking about how robust and balanced Spike/2 is (SAM and WPC-95 had "growing pains" too!), Gomez immediately segues into saying how fragile Spike/2 power budgets are and that users have damaged theirs by modding them. The irony of this immediate juxtaposition in his talk is apparently lost on him.

Batgirl is coming to Batman'66 code.

#1941 1 year ago

How do people find out far in advance what the next title is? It seems you guys are right about 99% of the time.

People talk. Alcohol makes them talk more.

Mmm, software delays

“Titanium Man” didn’t sound like Lyman was on code though

#1945 1 year ago

Elvira 3 will happen. Gomez mentioned they are waiting for a Software Engineer to get freed up.

Ok Stern - Then please get one freed up ! Elvira 3 needs to get happening .....

Quoted from NoQuarters:

It doesn't sound like this year to me, and Gomez was doing significant verbal acrobatics to come up with the words he used, so it sounds like there are problems. My opinion.

#1950 1 year ago
