Quoted from Pinchild:

I want Back to the Future!
Origanal Dataeast one stank

BTTF for sure. With some cool clips and callouts from the movie. And a toy that can vanish, like: "erased from existense".

DE machine sucks, I owned one, restored it to better than new but got rid of it because it lacks of almost everything. Didn't miss it since. Came accross it at a customers place last year.

Quoted from jorro:

Or this
Beavis and butthead pinball adventure

Uh huh huh huh, she said: Liquor.

I'd love a B&B themed pin, it would be so much fun. It will need some great collection of callouts though because it'll bore fast I guess.

Guys, open a different thread on the warped playfield, bad customer satisfaction, Tommy, or whatever. But keep on-topic here.

What will be the next Stern pinball??

@moderator: please moderate this thread.

Quoted from Dallas_Pin:

Elvira ...[quoted image]

Although I think this will make a nice pin I surely hope pick some new themes in the future. Many people were saying Jaws to be the next pin and I think that can be a great pin as well. From Elvira we got the party monsters and scared stiff. Both pins which are highly rated by most people (personally I couldn't care less for both) and for black knight: been there, done that, got the T-shirt.
When you look at the Munsters: no one saw that coming and I think it's a great machine. Same for Deadpool and Guardians.

Only retheme I want to see is a nice reboot of BTTF. That DE thing is a turd unfortunately and with modern techniques you can.... well, let me put it this way:
"wireramps, wireramps? Where were going we don't need'.......... wireramps!"

Quoted from NintenBear:

My local distributor also said JW. Hoping for a TMNT or even Stranger Things down the road.

I would like a "stranger things" very much. Needs to be 80's neon/arcade cheesy though.

Did some digging around. Judge for yourself but I guess it's a decoy.

Well, i guess we'll know in a few hours.

Quoted from stretch2:

This is like watching paint dry ...

#4321 6 months ago

So many posts on forehand and now it's quiet? What do you guys think of the Jurassic Park release?

To me it looks nice and I am anxious to play it to find out if it's a pin I should consider buying. I'm no fan of JP whatsoever and the DE pin has little value to me, it's nice to play on location and it stands out from the most others you can find there but nothing more.
Future will tell I guess.

For me being an 80's guy:

Miami Vice

And Stranger Things of course.

#5034 3 months ago

Said it before and I will say it again.

1. Stranger Things
2. Back to the future
3. Miami Vice

An 80's theme, somewhat cheesy but fast. With lots of modern toys.

#5143 3 months ago
Quoted from PW79:

If Stern made a Miami Vice pin...
I'd make a topper out of a bag of powdered sugar
2.2lbs wizard mode
Uzi hurry up
Spell Ferrari to start multiball
Crocodile bash toy under the boat

Izzy hurry up. MANG!!

And a Noogy multiball, a Calderone's return lane. Trudy's bootie call.........

Quoted from mrclean:

IF and when a STRANGER THINGS Pinball comes out :
Should have :
-Iconic creepy score plays at power up / ball launch
-Demogorgon mech opening ball swallowing / spitting out feature.
-LED blinking Christmas lights that WILL communicates with you
-Lower Playfield which represents the "Upside Down" (or entire Playfield becomes grayscale, perhaps flippers are reversed )
-Magnetic levitating ball / save feature that Eleven saves you with her powers
-Waffle / Eggo pop bumpers
-The Clash - Should I stay or should I go needs to play at some point as a music clip
-Spinner which rotates / activates the kids bike tires
-Dustin And Suzie Sing 'The NeverEnding Story' when having a long balltime / wizard mode
-Need to collect items like Steve's Spiked bat to battle
-Scoops Ahoy flavor mode call outs with Erica serving as she puts the ERICA in AMERICA
-Save / Find Barb mode
-Final Battle Mode with The Mind Flayer
-Star Court Mall escalator ramp for the ball to slide down
-Murray Bauman hidden hide out spot on the playfield
-Chief HOPPER call outs
-Billy mode heavily featuring the shaker as he's a pretty intense character
-Gather Friends Lucas, Dustin, Will, Mike, increase multipliers
-Hurry up mode Close the gate
-Joyce Byers cracking her axe as the playfield rumbles from the shaker
-Initials / name "Mad Max" score should be the highest score from factory
-Dr Martin Brenner gather test subject modes
-Bob Newby aka Sean Astin Ball Save
-Chief Hopper SHOOT Again!

O boy. I think I would buy it unseen.
Also a lot of clips of the series, a dig dug arcade mode

And a Halloween shaped midnight madness mode.

Quoted from Jimmyhonda:

A Red Hot Chili Peppers pin would be great! Funk and rock and roll. California drop targets with ramps that look like waves. Could be great! They are in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, so they obviously have a enormous following.

Not another band related pin. Please....

Quoted from SadSack:

It's gotten really crazy on this board. I vacationed from it for about 6 months and within a week being back, I was called and "old-school piece of shit" and an idiot for disagreeing with the herd. Perhaps my vacation wasn't long enough. I want to be on the board and meet some great people, but this board has some of the worst gamma weasels of any on the internet.. and that's saying something.
Back on topic, doesn't stranger things have some weird underworld that could be represented by a specific area or lower playfield?

It always baffles me that people can get so annoyed with each other. Come on people, we're all here for the same reason.

Quoted from frankmac:

They could do a Twilight Zone style back glass on Stranger things.

Surely would make a nice bridge between my wpc collection including TZ and my newer Stern's.

#5476 83 days ago

C'mon Stern, ideas and artwork are handed to you on a silver platter...

Well, Trudeau will be released next week, so it could happen.

Bad sense of humor man.

Quoted from Mr_Outlane:

Aliens is one of my dream themes for sure!

Played it at the Dutch Pinball Open last week and I must say that the machine made an impression. Good sounds, nice flow and solid animations. You can tell that great care has been put in this pin.

However.... It kept breaking down. At several moments in the game the ball was shot in the scoop resulting in the fact that several ball searches could not find the ball and the machine had to be rebooted. Personally the game has that wow factor but that wow was soon gone because the playfield is too dark and the game doesn't cut it. My two friends kept getting back for more and played it for a couple of games. They weren't blown away either.

BTTF... please.

#6307 36 days ago
Quoted from Wakky:

Gary has made it very clear its not happening and has been done. Ask him yourself but I warn you to be prepared for the consequences!

That's too bad. A BTTF themed modern pin would kick ass in my opinion. BTTF is such an iconic movie which everyone knows something about, anyone has seen it. So, for us nerds it would be a great pin for home use and for the more normal people it would do great on location as it is recognisable.

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

I was only off by 12 days! Next Stern Pin due to be revealed in Early May. Math below.
Predicted Reveal date: 5/6/2020
According to Special when lit, the goal is 4 cornerstone games per year. This year we had Munsters, Black Knight, Jurassic Park, and Stranger Things. A cornerstone game follows the pro/premium/LE model. On top of that, if you are only measuring time between cornerstone games launched in the past 3 years (after switching over to LCD), you come up with 139 days between releases. 139 days after the Stranger Things reveal is May 10, 2020. I am going to official predict a IGN article on the 6th of May followed by a full stream on Friday the 8th of May.
Aerosmith 1/4/2017 (128 days after BM66)
Star Wars 5/31/2017 (147 days after Aerosmith)
Guardians of the Galaxy 11/2/2017 (156 days after Star Wars)
Iron Maiden 3/25/2018 (144 days after Guardians of the Galaxy)
Dead Pool 8/3/2018 (131 days after Iron Maiden)
Munsters 1/12/2019 (203 days after Deadpool)
Black Knight SOR 3/25/2019 (72 days after Munsters)
Jurassic Park 7/26/2019 (122 days after BK SOR)
Stranger Things: 12/23/2019 (150 days after Jurassic Park)
Next Stern Pin due 10 May with predicted reveal 6 May and Stream 8 May.
No idea what the game is or who is on code.

You're forgetting Beatles from 2019 as well. We were treated with 5! new games this year from Stern alone. Way to go Stern!
