Quoted from choseh:
"It's gonna be a most excellent game"
Stranger Things would be most excellent for me.
I hope the Stranger Things rumor turns out to be untrue, I was hoping Spooky or DP would pick that one up......shit!
It's either that or "Stranger Things", I think they picked up the S-Things license just to piss me off, I had mentioned anyone would do that license justice except them....but if Brian Eddy's is on it then the joke is on them.
PS: Judging by Dirty Donny's S-Things poster that he posted, I have to say he got the art wrong though.
Quoted from J85M:
I agree as much as his art worked so well for Met and Aerosmith, it doesn’t go quite as well with Stranger Things unfortunately Franchi would have been my choice for stranger things but he’s left Stern now.
Yes, I agree, if they had just used the material from the press junker it would have been stellar...Donny however went for a generic 80's thing, with the Camaro and a weird looking Demogorgon as the centerpiece, but I'm still hoping this was just him using his rejected ideas for a teaser.
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!
Lol, awesome list....but remember Stern is building this
Quoted from Diospinball:
I think the only way I'd buy a NIB band pin from stern would be if they made a Judas Priest pin. I'd go super LE all over a Dio pin. But, that will never, ever happen. Even though really Dio's and Priests album sales are around the same. I think Priest because they are still active has a little bit better brand right now.
But, I'd move Heaven And Hell just to get the SLE for a dio... For a Priest. It be a Prem or LE... Whichever has the better art package.
But, I just don't see that happening... Not a shame... I got Iron Maiden and that was amazing. One day I wouldn't mind an AC DC Luci though. And I think the Aerosmith pin is really dang good. Love that ball lock and it has some of the coolest animations in all pinball.
I'd buy my next Stern music pin if they make "The Clash" so we both have about a 1% chance of buying a Stern music pin.
