Update - not sure how many pretend orders we need to get the attention of a pin company for this project, but I am rolling for 300. Seemed dudish and is also a perfect bowling score.

Obviously this could be the greatest pin theme ever. No one is really talking about doing it, but we can dream right? I am going to count how many people say they would purchase a TBL.

No thought right now as to the company - Stern, JJP, Skit B, whoever. Just imagine that one showed up with a plan, resources, and talent - are you in on a pre-pay/pre-order deal?

Terms will be $6500 for a blown out, upscale, beautiful, well done TBL. $1500 up front and $5,000 upon completion. It could be cheaper, who knows, maybe more - but work with these numbers for now.

I am putting myself down for 3 to get this started! I will update the title every few days with a total.

You never know, a big number on this thread could get someone's attention! Here are the people that are in and their numbers:

Im still waiting for Young Frankenstein.

#3 6 years ago

I can only coordinate one fake project at a time, sorry sb80.

#4 6 years ago

It would really tie my collection together. Of course I'd be in Man.

#5 6 years ago

Dude. That is awesome. That makes 4.

#6 6 years ago

Not sure if I want the "Mark It Zero" LE or a "Shut the F*ck Up, Donny" LE...but I'm in.

I wish I had the time/ability to design it myself...it would be in my gameroom already.

#7 6 years ago

Here are the terms:

$6,500 for the pin and they are all premium level, no stripped down versions.

$1,500 up front.

Balance ($5,000) due before delivery.

#8 6 years ago

We are already at 5!

#9 6 years ago

Would the Autobahn LE only be available in Europe?

#10 6 years ago

I might not make it at those terms. If Skit-B could do it for about a grand or so less I'd have to make it work. As is, I'd have to try. Who am I kidding? I'd actually get a credit card for just it.

Yeah. I'd be in.

Young Frankenstein, "Nice Knockers" mode would be funny.

#11 6 years ago

This is league play jarjarisgod, are you in or not?

#12 6 years ago
Quoted from RTR:

This is league play jarjarisgod, are you in or not?

As long as no firearms are pulled... I'm in!

#13 6 years ago

Yeah. I'd in.

It could be cheaper, who knows. But I want a high quality TBL in my pinball fantasy...

#14 6 years ago

Jarjarisgod - yours is lucky number 7!!

Dang, I wanted that one.

#15 6 years ago

Nihilist LE or Urban Achiever LE? Tough decision.

#16 6 years ago
Quoted from RTR:

Jarjarisgod - yours is lucky number 7!!

$10K by Christmas!

#17 6 years ago
Quoted from jayhawkai:

Nihilist LE or Urban Achiever LE? Tough decision.

Can I put you down for both or just one?

Urban Achiever would be the 'pro' model. We aren't doing any of those...

A nice animated ferret topper?

#18 6 years ago
Quoted from RTR:

A nice animated ferret topper?

Any kind of marmot will do.

#19 6 years ago

I am the walrus

#20 6 years ago

The Jesus LE w/ purple powder coat

#22 6 years ago

Wish I was closer! GLWTS!

(sorry, had to do it)

#23 6 years ago

I will take one-will you take my $8000 and hold it-but make sure to make broken promises

#24 6 years ago

I am in for one

#25 6 years ago

I have a list now at the top, if your name isn't on it, you haven't called for one. 1-10 are now gone!

#26 6 years ago
Quoted from herbertbsharp:

The Jesus LE w/ purple powder coat

Does that mean you are in on the pre-order?

#27 6 years ago

I'd buy one, but has to be R rated and has to do the movie justice, I do not want one just because its TBL, it has to be great, probably would lean towards Skit-B if anyone.

#28 6 years ago
Quoted from pinmister:

I will take one-will you take my $8000 and hold it-but make sure to make broken promises

Yes!!! I promise to make and break promises! Whatever makes you happy. Or unhappy. I am confused now.

Please stay on topic.

#29 6 years ago

I'll take #11 of this mythical pin.

#30 6 years ago

I'd be a definite maybe.

#31 6 years ago
Quoted from rai:

I'd buy one, but has to be R rated and has to do the movie justice, I do not want just any pin just because its TBL, has to be great, probably would lean towards Skit-B if anyone.

I will not let anyone tackle this project unless they abide. I am putting you down for #12.

#32 6 years ago
Quoted from rai:

I'd buy one, but has to be R rated and has to do the movie justice

It must be Jackie Treehorn approved. Accept no substitutes!

#33 6 years ago
Quoted from Honch:

I'd be a definite maybe.

Honch you have lucky 13. I know when maybe really means yes. Plus you can fake sell your spot later if you like. Trust me.

#34 6 years ago
Quoted from herbertbsharp:

The Jesus LE w/ purple powder coat

Herb you're genius! only the jesus purple man!! I'd be down for one!

#35 6 years ago

all you guys need is like the perfect rug to bring this thing together....

#36 6 years ago
Quoted from jarjarisgod:

It must be Jackie Treehorn approved. Accept no substitutes!

Logjammin' LE!!!!!

#37 6 years ago

#38 6 years ago

Skit-B 3rd pin would ok with me, I could use a breather after 2012-13 buying spree.

#39 6 years ago
Quoted from Rarehero:

Logjammin' LE!!!!!

Don't forget the Gutterballs LE!

#40 6 years ago
Quoted from RTR:

Honch you have lucky 13. I know when maybe really means yes. Plus you can fake sell your spot later if you like. Trust me.

You talked me into it, especially since it's #13.

Quoted from rai:

I'd buy one, but has to be R rated and has to do the movie justice, I do not want one just because its TBL, it has to be great, probably would lean towards Skit-B if anyone.

I feel the exact same way.

#41 6 years ago

Now that I learned it's a movie, I will make an effort to try and see it this year and get back to you. I am sure there is more than enough time.

#42 6 years ago

One of the ball drain quotes has to be...

Walter - "This is what happens when you f*** a stranger in the ass!"

#43 6 years ago

I was thinking a while back that this would be a great re-theme for the Flinstones. At the very least, TBL should have a similar bowling alley shot!

#44 6 years ago

Find a stranger in the Alps? Yes.

#45 6 years ago
Quoted from RustyLizard:

Now that I learned it's a movie, I will make an effort to try and see it this year and get back to you. I am sure there is more than enough time.

It's a great movie, but I didn't appreciate it fully until I watched for a second time a few years later.

#47 6 years ago

Tilt warning:

Smokey, this is not nam. This is pinball. There are rules.

#48 6 years ago

Was there any doubt that I would buy one? I'm adhering to a pretty strict, uh, drug regimen to keep my mind limber until it arrives at my door. Needless to say I would be in without hesitation.

#49 6 years ago

Count me in for an LE.

#50 6 years ago

Tilt warning is: careful man, there's a beverage here!
