Quoted from vireland:

Just waiting for Iron Maiden...and hoping they got the artist that did their most iconic album covers.

Iron Maiden
Guardians of the Galaxy
Pulp Fiction
Jurassic World
Elvira 3 - but not really a Stern title.

Anyone know if the sound track from the movie will be on GOTG?

It has to be, right?

#923 2 years ago

Well, these are the songs on the album.

Wonder which ones will make the game?

Sweet - Fox on the Run - excellent pinball song but only on trailer.

Fleetwood Mac - The Chain - great pinball song.

ELO - Mr Blue Sky - has to be included.

Will Vol 1 be included?

Title Artist(s) Length
1. "Mr. Blue Sky" Electric Light Orchestra 5:03
2. "Fox on the Run" Sweet 3:25
3. "Lake Shore Drive" Aliotta Haynes Jeremiah 3:49
4. "The Chain" Fleetwood Mac 4:27
5. "Bring It On Home to Me" Sam Cooke 2:43
6. "Southern Nights" Glen Campbell 2:57
7. "My Sweet Lord" George Harrison 4:37
8. "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)" Looking Glass 3:03
9. "Come a Little Bit Closer" Jay and the Americans 2:46
10. "Wham Bam Shang-A-Lang" Silver 3:32
11. "Surrender" Cheap Trick 4:14
12. "Father and Son" Cat Stevens 3:39
13. "Flash Light" Parliament 4:28
14. "Guardians Inferno" The Sneepers featuring David Hasselhoff 3:16

Quoted from J85M:

Since you seem to know what's what who's going code with Borg for GOTG?

And any idea if any of the songs from movies will be in GOTG?

#1021 2 years ago
Quoted from vireland:

Lonnie ranges from weak to *okay* generally, but he has a reputation for just not finishing off games and leaving them with annoying bugs. KISS has a BUNCH of annoying bugs, few of which were actually addressed in the tiny 1.28->1.30 update that took almost 18 months. Avengers, yuck. Transformers, yuck. Mustang, yuck. Star Trek and Iron Man - actually these are probably his most "finished" machines.
So, Lonnie is kind of a crapshoot with strong negative leanings for blah software, and a likelihood not to "finish" the software off by clearing known bugs. Not exactly my first choice for GotG.

Yeah, it is annoying that he hasn't finished KISS and AS has similar issues.

Both are great games but as the home collector market continues to grow, please finish games!

As for GOTG.

Will now wait until code is done....

If Stern continue with stripped down games going forward, more important than ever they they code games to the absolute max.

They have been complacent for far too long.

POTC is just jam packed.

I'm guessing Elvira will be at Expo next October. Something else for spring 2018.

Iron Maiden next!

#1182 2 years ago


But will it feature the Archer layout?

#1217 2 years ago

I think Deadpool, Elvira 3 and Iron Maiden will all happen - just no idea of the order.

#1303 2 years ago

Presuming Elvira 3 is Expo, so when is Iron Maiden? Next or one after?

2 weeks later
#1336 2 years ago
Quoted from Psw757:

I saw that but the thing that has me scratching my head is the rumored Beatles pin which the same people said would be expo maybe sooner.
Assuming Stern has this license, have they ever built two music pins within the same year. Seems odd.

But Beatles is a KAPOW title and that means no pro etc. Supposed to be Expo again just like BM66.

And 80 Beatles SLE at $15000!

Iron Maiden is a regular Stern title.

#1351 2 years ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

It's looking like a 2 game year, with the first game at TPF.
We know one of them is Elvira, from a rare case of pre-announcement from the designers.
We just don't know if it's the Spring game, or the Fall.

It maybe be 2 plus KAPOW Beatles and maybe a Vault.

#1357 2 years ago
Quoted from mufcmufc:

George Gomez said 3 titles this year earlier today I'm expecting Feb 19th IM announcement

Makes sense

Heighway showing Queen at Texas on 18th March and Spooky showing Alice Cooper.

Makes sense for Stern to show Iron Maiden first.

#1388 2 years ago

Well, it looks like Luci vault edition is before Iron Maiden.....


#1411 1 year ago
Quoted from PW79:

Is Elvira the Elwin game?


Iron Maiden.

Quoted from mnpinball:

Maiden is next. Worst kept secret in pinball.

The secret bit is who is doing the code??!!!

No one has said that other than it would be Keith's ideas?

#1477 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

GOT Premium/LE.


#1479 1 year ago

So, these are all maybe's.

Iron Maiden with Archer layout.

Zombieyeti art package.

Keith Elwin's first game.

Lyman leading the software team.

666 LE's.

#1500 1 year ago

If Iron Maiden has the same layout as Archer it will be awesome as that layout is totally unique with so many cool shots.

If it's that layout and confirmed Lyman doing the code, dang, it might have to be LE!

Needs mirrored backglass as well.

#1534 1 year ago

If Iron Maiden is current, according to another thread, take a look at this.


A lot of 80's hits will be featured.

#1538 1 year ago

Looks a cool tour.

The concept for the Legacy Of The Beast World Tour was inspired by Maiden’s mobile game and comic book of the same name and the stage set design will feature a number of different but interlocking “worlds” with a set list covering a large selection of Eighties material with a handful of surprises from later albums to add diversity.

Maiden manager Rod Smallwood explains further,

“As our fans know, we’ve been following a particular touring cycle ever since Bruce and Adrian re-joined Maiden at the start of the millennium, alternating new album tours with “History/Hits” tours. We enjoy working this way for many reasons, not least because it gives the band a chance to play both new material and the older favourites which we know fans like to hear. It keeps things fresh, not just for the fans but for the band too.

“For this History/Hits tour we decided to base the theme around the Legacy Of The Beast name, which suits our purposes perfectly by giving us scope to get creative and have some fun, especially with Eddie! I don’t want to give too much away at the moment but we’re working on a number of different stage sets, all in keeping with the Maiden tradition and we hope to give our fans a fantastic experience when they come to see this very special show.”

#1576 1 year ago
Quoted from Cantaffordgames:

Iron Maiden plays in STADIUMS arcross the world and sells out arenas to this day in the U.S. you are seriously underestimating their popularity.


This is going to be the first LE for a while that will sell out quick, especially if they do 666 or less.

#1581 1 year ago
Quoted from vireland:

Since JJP has had pins installed at GnR shows for Slash, I bet they're already on it and doubt it's 3 years out. We have Toy Story, possibly late this year, then Gene Wilder's Willy Wonka in mid 2019, then what? Muppets were on the original leaked list, but I can't imagine they're still on it. So maybe GnR late 2019? That's not that far off...

And that means a ton of Slash call outs which will be good.

Never liked the Hobbit but it did sound superb.

GnR on a JJP sound system is sure gonna rock!

#1629 1 year ago
Quoted from Midway-Man:

Iron Maiden will be announced in March.

Supposed to be next week.


#1643 1 year ago
Quoted from Sinestro:

Jeez, at this point I just want Stern to release IM so we can start talking about the next game. IM does nothing for me.

Go to the Deadpool thread - it's ready n waiting

I'm beyond that one too. What's next?

Munsters and Beatles.

#2079 1 year ago
Quoted from PinballManiac40:

And.....beyond that?

Jurassic World, Bon Jovi, Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix......

All old rumors!

#2172 1 year ago
Quoted from JimB:

With ABBA doing 2 new songs now (artwork like Aerosmith) they would be a good theme for a Pinball. They are also doing a virtual tour so time is right for someone to take that license.

Would be a buyer ! Would put next to Maiden

Can't see anyone getting the licence though.

#2194 1 year ago

I fancy a Beatles but my worry is that this is the Kapow title and that only means expensive, crazy expensive and ridiculously priced editions

Translation. No pro.

#2224 1 year ago
Quoted from mnpinball:

Munsters = Pro/Prem/LE

Presuming Beatles is SLE, LE and Premium?

#2228 1 year ago

So, Superman 78 back as a strong rumor - think this was talked about a few years ago so thinking this is quite likely in 2019.

But, Beetlejuice? Really???

#2232 1 year ago
Quoted from JimB:

If they do anymore sixties stuff I hope they put in the original Star Trek. Would great to see clips from the show on the new LCD.

Have to agree that the original Star Trek series on LCD would really hit Stern's demographic.

And not too late to get custom call outs from William Shatner.

Nostalgia, Sci-fi, now on Blu-ray, just had 50th anniversary.

#2234 1 year ago
Quoted from JimB:

I'd bet Shatner would do it no problem at all. He's big on promoting stuff already. Sign cards like they did with BM66. LE's would sell out fast.

I think he would do it if asked as well.

If done right, it could be superb.

Talk about a universal theme - Spock transcends generations!

Interesting lay out.

How do you hit the upper left ramp?

Is there a 3rd flipper?

Quoted from DS_Nadine:

Since the dirty laundry is out allready...
May we also get to know why Stern rejected? It looks pretty bad in those photos.

Taking a wild guess that there was a time delay from getting the game to making a claim? ie a warped playfield would be obvious from opening the box?

If it's not Jurassic 'something' it's going to be a major shock.

Quoted from epotech:

Star Wars Home Edition apparently.




#3833 6 months ago
Quoted from Oneangrymo:

what is a Star Wars home edition?

Like this....

ThePin-e1353462784133 (resized).jpg
#3843 6 months ago

If Star Wars pro was a 'box of lights', what will this version be?

An empty box with pictures on it?

#3870 6 months ago
Quoted from TreyBo69:

Star Wars Home would probably just be a rehash of the other home games, but I'd kinda curious what Elwin could cook up for a home edition. Iron Maiden Pro really doesn't have that much in it, so I bet Elwin could probably come up with a few fun shots and complimentary modes on a tiny budget. (Then again, don't put your best new designer on the product that will probably sell half of what a full arcade game could do)

No way in hell will Elwin have anything to do with this!!!!!

#3957 6 months ago
Quoted from Thunderbird:

It will be a brilliant strategy on many levels if it is in fact Star Wars home edition. A $3900 table for newbies would put up a huge challenge to Deeproot and anyone else trying to do pinball would almost call it quits with Stern marketing. A four tier system:
3.9k Home Edition - for newbies to introduce to pinball (we like this, so what else does Stern make?)
5.5k Pro - for Arcades & locations
7.5k Premium - for home owners
9k Limited Edition - for collectors
This would be a killer strategy for Stern to continue its dominance and grow the market. Real top popular IPs sold to people that know nothing about pinball. Not the no name IPs being considered or done by others. Winner strategy if this is the case. Will be good for us pinheads as well. Now if we can get Stern to focus on more and unique mechs...
(Come on Stern haters, give this a down vote, you know you want to...lol)

Except so far the home model just doesn't sell.

$4000 is a crazy amount for a big toy.

$5500 gets a proper arcade pinball machine.

#3988 6 months ago
Quoted from NorCalRealtor:

This SW speculation sound like bull crap to me. It will be a new pin.

Well, Stern gave distributors this info so that would seem unlikely.

Not to say there won't be another announcement with a 'proper' pin soon

#4281 5 months ago
Quoted from Tranquilize:

Personally don't get it. A remake of a pin that was modeled on a film from 1993.... Why?

Because people like dinosaurs?

Not a must have theme for me, but with Keith on the code, will pick one up a year down the road.

And which sounds better Raptor Tri Ball v Kid Multiball

500 LE will sell out quick.

No, it's the early October release....

#4702 3 months ago
Quoted from DavidPinballWizz:

SW is one of their best on software and tactics level. Take it from someone whou bought the game and not at all into star wars
But except for requests and some bill & ted rumours. It seems there is no obvious indications now on the next game(s)?

Led Zeppelin?
James Bond?

These been mentioned a lot.

#4738 3 months ago
Quoted from J85M:

Really I hadn’t heard anyone had gone for BTTF, go on......


#4842 3 months ago
Quoted from konghusker:

Kanedas rumor he heard was karate kid. I'd be ALL in on that one. Hoping that's true. Same with turtles.

Not into Karate Kid or Goonies - both seem real dated now.

I think the next Stern will be the re-skinned Led Zep game.

Beatles wasn't a hit with pinheads but I heard it sold pretty good, so expect same kind of selling model.

#4860 3 months ago
Quoted from Capn12:

Despite really wanting a great 80s theme, it is starting to feel more and more like it will be the Zeppelin reskin(to me). That seems like a fitting release to jam into the end of the year, before the next cornerstone (TMNT). I hope that isn't the case, but with JP and Elvira coming out so recently, it just feels like we won't be getting another net-new pin.

Hit the Xmas nostalgic market hard.

Many different sources suggesting this is next.

And it will be Quicksilver, not Ali.

I think there are plenty of false rumors to catch various podcasters out, and throw people off the scent!

#4864 3 months ago
Quoted from chad:

K man mentioned this , but who knows. How about a remake of Starn Pinball 80s game.

Kaneda mentioned it, as did others.

Seems a solid guess as it fits Stern's strategy of targeting different demographics with different games.

And then Turtles in Jan 2020.

I am guessing but this seems fairly likely...... but Stern can surprise from time to time.

Remember when Mustang and WWE dropped out of the blue?

#4985 3 months ago
Quoted from Sinistarrett:

Where did this Quicksilver/Led Zep mashup rumour originate? Ive only heard about it in this thread. Sounds interesting to me as long as its not Beatles pricing.

It was last year that someone briefly mentioned it - can't remember who.

Since then lots of different people.

Pee Wee could be a great theme, lots to add. Just not sure how many people are fans of that show these days.


That would be very niche in an already niche hobby!!

Arrested but not charged for possession of child pornography.

After the JT scandal, Stern wouldn't go near this as a licence.

Quoted from aeonblack:

I'm definitely thinking the rumors of Led Zep and Stranger Things are viable, but TMNT doesn't seem that likely.
But this is what I really want. Really, just any awesome sci-fi pin would be awesome.

TMNT is a super strong rumor.

And like JP it's a Data East re-boot so much cheaper for Stern to do....

#5891 45 days ago
Quoted from Who-Dey:

I gotta believe that Tron will be made as a vault one day and it definitely should be. Seems like the only vaults so far though are games that they need to get rid of extra parts that they have laying around. How cool would a vault TSPP or a LOTR be? I also think it would be cool to see them make some old classics and price them reasonable. I would buy a NIB METEOR remake right now.

Tron great candidate ... but wonder if it would still have SAM boards?

Started to re-appreciate some of the great SAM games again.

SAM games are bullet proof compared to Spike 1 and 2. Tick tock.


#5922 44 days ago

So, will Stranger Things be focused on all 3 seasons or just be season 1 I wonder?

Presume they will get the music as would be a big miss without.

Any custom voice work?

Going to be great to see what Eddy has designed

#6146 33 days ago
Quoted from J85M:

If games have been on the line since last week maybe we will see the reveal/announcement this week? Stern might try to take some of the wind out of Spookys sails as they did the official rick and Morty reveal and it looks pretty damn good.

I thought they might do this.

However Spooky will probably be sold out before they announce now.

But with Stranger Things on boats as we speak, announcement must be close!
