    Surely this would be the best theme for a new pin..Think of all the great toys, the stages.etc etc...Kenny's chicken, Babu, the constanza's...soo....many....things...

    You're about 15 years too late on that one, and my god, how freaking annoying would that pin be to listen to in your home....

    Never liked that show....

    No Soup For You!

    ...Hello, Newman.

    Man-del-baum!

    Art Vandelay, architect.

    .... Yeah. I LIKE Seinfeld, but an awful pin theme.

    Because it would be a pin about nothing.

    #9 8 years ago

    One multiball could shoot out tiny balls and it could be called Georges "it was shrinkage" mutiball!

    #10 8 years ago

    Even Steven!

    I can't believe this yogurt's fat-free!

    Bovary?... Regina!!!

    #11 8 years ago

    SERENITY NOW!- love the show, but that would be a bad theme. "A show about nothing". Stern should charge full price for a NIB with only a single pinball inside.

    #12 8 years ago

    But im not the assman
    Not that theres anything wrong with that
    I am master of my domain
    The jerkstore called
    The're real, and the're spectacular!
    A festivus for the rest of us
    Correct me if im wrong, but i believe thats a nipple
    she had man hands
    one in a million shot doc, one in a million
    yadda yadda yadda
    these pretzels are making me thirsty
    and you want to be my latex salesman

    GIDDY UP!

    #13 8 years ago

    A great theme if you're into a boring neurotic game about absolutely nothing.

    I'm still waiting for the "Maury" pinball game featuring:

    Who's yo' daddy mystery mode.
    Flyin' Chairs multiball
    Bitchslap frenzy

    And it all leads up to... Wait for it...

    Can you believe I'm Porkin' Connie Chung wizard mode!

    It'll make thousands, monthly at every 7-11 and trailer park laundromat. Guaranteed!!!

    Pigman

    Jerry Seinfeld-The Devil

    New Yorker comic of the pig at the complaint desk that no one gets. Kramer's caption suggestion: "My wife's a slut."

    You are so good looking!

    What's Seinfeld?

    #17 8 years ago

    I got an idea for a pinball about nothing
    What's the pinball about?
    Nothing
    I think you may have something there

    The instruction card says MOOPS!

    I'm sorry jerry, you can't have your pinball back. You mistreat it, then expect me to tune it up to factory condition

    Never thought about it, but would give a NIB serious consideration! LOL

    "These pretzels are making me thirsty!"

    #20 8 years ago

    I love Seinfeld, and I actually just went to see him perform last week. He's hilarious, but I've gotta say, this would be a terrible pin theme!

    #21 8 years ago

    Hated Seinfeld. Would be about as good a pinball theme as anything on the Oxygen channel.

    #22 8 years ago

    A freaking awesome idea!!! This machine would be an instant classic and timeless (just like the show).. It would be a good candidate for an LCD...

    I would also love to play a Blackadder pinball..

    Quoted from Jimmydred:

    Never liked that show....

    +1 The opening monologue was the worst. Not even remotely funny.

    #24 8 years ago
    Quoted from LesManley:

    +1 The opening monologue was the worst. Not even remotely funny.

    That's because he's not a very good stand up comedian. The show is great (past seasons 1&2) but his comedy isn't interesting. So glad when they stopped the monologue bit; pointless.

    #25 8 years ago

    never going to put a dent in getting new people into pins with age old TV shows.

    How aboot a 74 year old movie?

    #27 8 years ago

    Man hands multiball?

    #28 8 years ago

    Cause it would sell like spoiled milk

    #29 8 years ago

    It moved.

    Master Of Your Domain Multiball?

    Actually it's Steinfeld. Original poster forgot to use spell check.

    #32 8 years ago

    THESE PINBALLS ARE MAKING ME THIRSTY.

    #34 8 years ago

    It's always amusing how some people feel compelled to tell you they didn't like a given show.

    Like we care about the fact that they have no sense of humor, for instance. Or an unsophisticated one, anyway.

    Seinfeld would be a great pin, theme-wise, to anyone who loved the show. Obviously.

    Pins need more humor. Witness MM.

    Whether any given theme winds up being a great game has less to do with the theme, and everything to do with everything else!

    Just saw this on CL. It looks like a totally bogus ad, posted without real contact info out of state. Copied from the ad:

    sfbay.craigslist.org link

    "Whats the deal with Pinball Machines?" That's right everyone, join Jerry and the gang in fast and laughter filled pinball gameplay as you try to achieve "Nothing" This game is loaded with tons of classic character call outs, phrases and punch lines from the long running hit comedy series "Seinfeld." 

    The game features six major modes of play:

    "Yadda yadda yadda"

    "Not that there's anything wrong with that."

    "Bubble Boy"

    "Shrinkage"

    "Soup Nazi. No soup for you!"

    "Serentiy Now!"

    as well as a final Wizard mod, "I'm the Wiz!"

    FOUR DIFFERENT MULTIBALLS:

    "Newman!"

    "Jerkstore"

    "Festivus""

    "Sponge worthy"

    This game is so much fun to play and as many times as Ive played it I rarely here the same sound bites repeated. I believe this machine is somewhat rare as Ive never seen another one like it. My ex-husband brought it home and he was an employee of NBC.

    $2400 or best offer. Please email if interested.

    You are....... NOT the father!

    LOL - I just signed on to pinside to see if this was a real machine - had never heard of it. It came up on the Orlando Craigslist also. It looks like he is in Denver. Anyone near there should try to check it out

    april fools!

    #39 5 years ago

    Start airing your grievances.

    #40 5 years ago

    this game is not a lie,,if YOU believe its so

    #41 5 years ago

    Jimmy doesn't have any grievances, cause Jimmy likes to play a lot of pinball.

    #42 5 years ago

    Figured probably April Fools but so many scams on Craigslist - wanted someone to call him and say that they want to see the machine to see what he says. Festivus for the rest of us!!!

    Maybe the guy has a Frogger that has never been unplugged so George's high score doesn't get erased
