If there is a Wonder Woman pinball machine I am so in for my first NIB. It is crushing at the box office domestically and internationally, so would be a smart choice. (mind you, that's what I said about Jurassic World, and that has yet to result in a pin)

Never Weird Al. While he has been given so many graces from record companies for his parodies, they don't get much commercialization outside of the normal streams since the licensing would be a mess.

Thus making Wierd Al the perfect homebrew pinball machine project choice...

Was really hoping for GotG or Jurassic World at this point.

Quoted from Herm:

Guardians of the galaxy would be cool but the music licensing might be expensive.

The songs are all from the 1970s or so. The licensing is probably not too crippling. Those that are still alive, and the estates of the others, probably don't demand the same coin as a contemporary pop star. And you could probably get away with skipping some, like Bowie and Jackson 5

I'm continually shocked pinball manufacturers aren't working with videogame licenses.
Pokémon, Metroid, Resident Evil, Half Life, Halo, Mario Bros, Sonic The Hedgehog, etc etc etc.
So many great titles that are known for big action, have a huge built-in fanbase, and so many assets to work with creatively.

From the 80s you had stabs at it with Q*Bert, Baby Pac, Mr. and Mrs Pacman, Joust. 90s Gottlieb gave us SFII and 2 Mario games. (Rollercoaster Tycoon counts, I guess)
But here we are with pins based off 50-60 year old TV shows and bands doing their long retirements. I love the new titles, but the people that grew up on home video games are now the ones with the careers and midlife crises!

I've seen a lot of griping in forums where people are like "NEW RESIDENT EVIL GAME???" and it's a thread lamenting that the new machine is a Biohazard pachinko from Japan. The pachinko/pachislo industry has done a decent job in tapping the video game world. I think other popular ones were Metal Gear, Castlevania, and Silent Hill.

world of warcraft

oh yes, WoW or StarCraft would both be amazing pinball themes

a DKC pin would be a barrel of fun.

They're going to copy the Data East dinosaur head that eats the ball but will innovate with a playfield toy that poops it out the other end.

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Jurrassic XXX wourd be "meh".

Stern hasn't made a pornographic pin since Playboy in 2002 so I doubt they'd re-enter that market with sexy dinosaurs.

Quoted from ahdelarge:

So....the dealer livestream is happening now. How long til someone from that stream spills the beans on the title and it appears on Pinside?

OK, someone make it happen

Quoted from Raegor:

I'd love Grease, been saying that forever.

I re-watched it recently and couldn't get over how poorly it aged. It's pretty rapey. I love musicals but the sun is setting on that one.
On that note, they could totally get away with a Hamilton themed pin.

Quoted from Billy16:

SW home edition would be a major bummer...

alas, prep the bums for bumming.

Quoted from frankmac:

SW mini pin.
WTF Who buys these

Mini pins have their own thread this-a-way, but I digress... https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/mini-pins-whos-got-em-nudge-it-bell-ringer-bullseye-etc-etc

Quoted from jeffspinballpalace:

and in Pinball it applies to shots that are repeatable. When hit enough, a high score will result or a match win. I hate all casual references to or uses of the term.

If you'll all permit the quick tangent, when I joined the local league they asked how they can get more women to attend. My first response was to stop saying stuff like "raping the spinner" and "raping the backbox for parts".

If they do Jurassic World I hope they do a giant sculpt like Godzilla

#4117 6 months ago

It did! It's only correlation but I haven't heard local people say that in 2 years, and as well the number of women competing is way up.

#4120 6 months ago

so are those 3 tie fighte drops guaring the left Death Star ramp?

Quoted from j_m_:

hamilton the musical, or a pin based on mark (or dorothy) hamil[l]?

was think the Broadway musical Hamilton. As it sits, Tommy is the only pin based on a stage musical.
(Phantom Of The Opera isn't related to the stage production iirc)

Nice call to those who predicted this release--you were right!

There were two Dune movies.

I remember actually enjoying the TV series... probably doesn't hold up though

that could make up for the fact we never got a Matrix pinball.

Pokémon would be a great theme, and a safe way to diversify offerings away from Stern's focus on 40-something guys. Of course they would have to offer a version of the code for redemption arcades...

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Serious question, when was the last time a commercial machine was launched based off of Japanese Intellectual property. I know Capcom made games in the 90s alongside Sega, but I can't think of any Japanes IP past Godzilla, and that machine was licensed off of the American "film".

Great question. Besides Godzilla, you have to go back to Street Fighter II to find a game based off a Japanese IP.
Before that, Super Mario Bros & Mushroom World.

Absolutely bonkers to think that no one has done a proper VIDEO GAME-based release, let alone a game based off any number of the amazing IP that came out of Japan (Metroid, Pokémon, etc)

To go older, the only Japanese IPs I can think that were made into pinball machines are Mr. & Ms. Pac-Man, Baby Pacman, and Space Invaders

I agree and hope Stern or Spooky release it. It better not be another stripped down the pinball company machine release like the Jetsons ![quoted image][quoted image]

DUDE, OMG! lol

not shocked to hear there are plenty of Woah Nellie's unsold.
Bit more surprised about Spiderman Vault Premium still kicking around.

If Marco just acquired this stock, I sure hope they didn't pay full price for the Transformers and WWE LEs.
But also it just looks better for them to have a wider stock? Maybe they some around so s flashier inventory for the pinball newcomers with money to burn.

Quoted from chuckwurt:

I think OPs are just buying them. Maybe only stern army locations. Most of them buy every new stern.

Locations like that, how long do you figure it would be for any random new Stern to make back it's cost?
