Quoted from DanQverymuch:

Even at the current prices, pins are the best deal in the large toy department.
Try selling a boat you bought new for anything near what you paid!

Bought when though. 2020-earlier or late 2020-onwards.

Lots of folks will not dig resale value once inflation dies down.

That looks more like ZY to me.

Is the new Ghostbusters streaming ? Or is in theaters only?

Only theaters.

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:Rumored for months now, Kapow/Stern gave Elwin design of BTTF for 2022. The newest rumor is Kapow has Beetlejuice license. Joe at Kapow signaled they intend to use Team Elwin AMAP (as much as possible). Therefore it is possible to connect the dots and expect an Elwin Beetlejuice for 2023. That leaves Keith’s 2024 slot open for ……. Harry Potter. Joe will try to make Harry Potter happen in the near term.
So that’s a pretty good lineup for Keith: BTTF, Beetlejuice and Harry Potter. I’ve started saving $25 a day x 365 days for my Kapow/Elwin pinball funds. I am only saving up for the premium models.

Would make little sense to put their star designer on their boutique premium only line unless he was also simultaneously designing a core game.

Stern had this a few years ago and none of the designers wanted to make it.

Agreed. I think it could be a really great game.

#23312 58 days ago

I'd rather have a DREAM THEATER pinball than RUSH but thats just me...

#23313 58 days ago

I know everyone is tired of the Marvel titles, but I love pretty much all of them. I've heard rumors the Marvel pin Kaneda is talking about is Spider-Man. I'm not going to lie, I don't feel like that's the way to go. The 07 Spider-Man was pretty good and I think there are other good Marvel properties out there they could work with. I personally would love to see Daredevil, but that will never happen.

It's been almost 15 years...I think another good Spider-Man pin would be welcomed at this point by fans of Spidey.

How do you know that KME wants to do any of the 3 titles you mentioned ? Sounds like a pipe dream to me.

Is KME and JK really gonna team up ?

Yes KME is at the top of his game now, I would like to think that he has the opportunity to work with titles that he wants to do, not has to do.

To pull off a true masterpiece your heart has got to be in it. There may be other designers with a greater desire to make said titles happen.

#23322 57 days ago

I thought the BTTF & Elwin rumour had been debunked?

Would be a dream combination but most of Keith’s designs have most of the BOM on the playfield, BTTF needs full assets.

Guess they could cover the extra cost of assets with the Premium, LE and SLE model, hell throw in 88 CE’s with stainless steel trim for $30k and they would sell through instantly!

#23323 57 days ago

I may be in the minority but I would be disappointed if Elwin is chosen for BTTF. For some reason his tables have not resonated with me yet. Hoping it is not Elwin-if it is 15k and a Kapow Elwin combo I may have to pass.

#23324 57 days ago

Apparently BTTF is a dream theme for Elwin. I don't care who makes it or what it costs but it looks like (current rumor) Elwin and Kapow are teaming up. I agree usually Elwins BOM is all playfield and little to no assets. Probably why it is a rumored Kaminkow joint venture.

#23325 57 days ago

BTTF would be a dream theme for any company and any designer. I believe designers get a certain cut or percentage of every game sold. BTTF is going to do well just on theme alone. I think Elwin has potential, had a thought that he needs to switch things up and try a two flipper game without all the loopty loops. Steve Ritchie has shown a well designed table with good flow is magical.

Something fun for the RUSH fans…

But Keith has said multiple times he prefers 3 or more flippers, if he can keep making awesome layouts using 3 or more flippers I can’t see him going back to 2.

There’s plenty of designers at Stern who churn out 2 flipper games over and over, so hopefully Keith keeps these interesting layouts coming, although I agree it would be nice to see him try something different from it’s the repeatable loops, the building in Godzilla changing up the path shots is brilliant!

#23328 57 days ago

Rush speculation:

Teased week of 12/13
Revealed week of 12/20
Streaming at CES week of 1/6

Since it's a Borg, I predict a Geddy Bash toy, three mono-targets, and seven magnets

#23329 57 days ago

Saw the first Rush mod listed for sale on Facebook on the weekend. If the mods are starting, game can’t be too far behind.

#23330 57 days ago

I’m not the biggest Rush fan but I do like prog rock. If the layout is good I might have to bite.

I heard 21/12 (12/12/21) - could be wrong

Exciting none the less!

They could do it any day at 9:12PM to hit the 21:12.

They may not care, but if something lines up, I could see them having a little fun.

#23337 57 days ago

Imagine Lyman still could be contracted on Rush. At least i am hoping.

#23338 57 days ago

Rocket City Pinball, only on FB for now

Anytime in December would make it '21-12, to my thinking.

Looks more appropriate for Hot wheels. Looks like tires and out of place with the bright Start.

I do! Nittos wrapping some carbon fiber Nutek 755's! Not quite as cool as that tire with a star setup though!

Isn’t that too soon since Godzilla ?

Not complaining just seems quick between releases

#23345 56 days ago

Come on, Borg! ACDC is epic because of the bell bash toy. Rush pin needs a Gong to hit after the ball is launched from a ramp!

And it was a month or more before the games started shipping. So there no point in announcing if it isn't already on the line in some fashion. It only gives those certain people something else to bitch about.
