It would be my grail pin.
Any pin I have would be on the block if I need the space or the $$$$ for it.
I would be a basket case worrying it would not come out to my expectations.
It would have to be original and not too similar to any other machine. It would also need to be respectful; Geddy, Alex, Neil’s family and the Rush family would need to be proud of it.
It would need subways and magnets and toys that are not cheap. It would need Drop Targets (probably in-line) and Spinners.
It would need to be fast, but not always or just fast.
It would need to be playable and liked by non-Rush fans (maybe I will take this one back). Of course the manufacturer would want this.
It would need to have more than just 10-15 songs; it would need to go deep with songs at certain modes and the farther you progress the deeper it would go. Maybe even work it’s way backwards in time like R40 (with some popular stuff intertwined)
It would need to pay tribute.
Besides the music I would want some of their story and humor to be tied in. It shouldn’t be all music, there should be some self deprecating humor and tie in to the cult fan base.
Ton’s of material could be used; I Love You Man, Frank Constanza, All the material from the shows (in fact their tour production team would need to work on it), South Park, etc etc etc .
My only caveat here; We have to mourn first....I know there is no machine coming out. But it there was I would not run out and buy it right now. That just doesn’t feel right.
When the time is right the machine should come out....and many will buy it.
