Already have the next two Titles figured out. By the time they got around to
it, movie will be out on DVD thus be history and pointless to do.

Personally, I'd hate the theme but gotta admit (sic) SpoogeBob is still
a popular theme. (And I believe well known outside the USA.)

GTA trillogy.

yes that would mean that one more would have to be made, thus the pin
would fit into the hype of the new game. I still see san andreas adds
and posters everywhere.

Harry potter and another IJ pin are also good ideas to tie in with the
new movie releases...star wars is over and done.

But i'm sure that they're not on the wonderful Stern picked over
license list.

GTA would be great, and with so many stories, and themes to choose from
from the game it would be stupid to not do it.

This is the single-worst idea for a pin I have ever heard. Though I
guess since Satan did get his own machine already in Gorgar it might be
fair play.

Stern would be very wise to make a super hero type pin, as has been
mentioned COUNTLESS times before. PLEASE STERN! I want to see X-Men,
which could be released with the 3rd movie next year. Or Spiderman,
which could also be released with the next movie.

If the Fantastic Four movie is any good, and inspires sequels, I'd
*die* for a FF pin! "Clobberin' Time" mode, "Human Torch" loops,
"Invisible Girl" mode where you have to shoot all the balls into hidden
areas, Mr. Fantastic "stretching" across the screen, WHATEVER I'd just
love to see it done.

I'm suggesting nothing new here, just agreeing with the rest of you
that a good superhero theme would do very well...

I would think that these would be cool:

AC/DC (highway to hell loop, TNT bumpers, back in black alley, plus
other assorted stuff with money talks, thunderstruck, hells bells).
Would have the possibility of being one of the coolest pins ever if
done right.

Harry Potter would be a great pin for Stern to do- so much could be done on
the playfield and with the art, characters, etc. Much like LOTR. I was
originally opposed to a HP pin, but really like the films since my kids have
been into them- good stuff Maynard...

Spiderman you could pull from all 3 movies.

Well speaking as someone who will some day be a parent, GTA is so far
the one and only video game that is on my banned from the kiddies list.
If you feel daring enough drive down fullerton to Pulaski and turn
south until you hit North Ave. All your questions about the
lacklusterness of GTA will be answered. When you live in that life for
16 years there's no entertainment value.

I think a Muscle Car theme would be cool ! No license required and it'll
sell to all the car guys :-)

Collect money so you can bid in auction mode. Race mode trying to win a
pink slip. Car show mode . . . etc.

With hot muscle cars all over the cabinet and backglass it would be visually
appealing . . .

My idea ;-)

Dunno- I think Stern were hoping to empty the pockets of guys like "the car
guys", or older crowd, with "Elvis"- the whole "nostalgia" thing. But it
didn't happen. Same with Corvette years ago. Oh, and Viper Night Drivin'!

But again, my argument is, "how many 'car themed' pins have done well in
past years?" Look at the failure/lukewarm list:

- Viper Night Drivin'
- Mario Andretti
- Indianapolis 500
- Nitro Groundshaker
- Twin Win
- Corvette
- Checkpoint
- Victory

High Speed and Getaway are of course exceptions I think- both did well. I
wouldn't grace the others in the list above with listing HS and HS2 among
them. Some of the above are a bit more lukewarm that others, but with that
kind of track record, I don't see *another* car-themed pin doing well at
all. I wouldn't make one. Stern's hoping to ride the wave of popularity
with Nascar (recognized theme) but that's about it. Hopefully it will keep
them in business for another few months.

But if we're looking for name recognition just to put 2 quarters in a pin,
let's make a "Milk" pinball- everyone recognizes milk! Just a plain flat
black backglass with the white words "Got Milk?" The thing would probably
top production and sales records for all time! ;) 

Just my jilted opinions! :)

Hey Ray!
It's gonna be a long time. We are just now getting remakes of
"The Honeymooners" and "Kojak" with Black stars. We have a lot of
years of
remakes to convert all the old shows to Black casts. Then we have to

How widely known is he outside US? After all, according to BusinessWeek
interviewing Gary Stern, "about 35% of Stern's sales now come from
overseas -- primarily in Western Europe but also in growing markets such as
Russia and China". The interview can be read in

My vote goes for a "Magic: The Gathering" pinball machine. It's a great
theme, and it's got good teenage through adult appeal.

Heck, the game writes itself - knock down targets to gain mana, complete
goals to cast spells, the game rules change based on spells cast, etc.
You could also have modes based on the Magic color wheel - as a black
mage, you could trade balls for abilities - as a blue mage, you can
easily get additional balls - as a red mage, no 'tricks' just
straightforward pinball with big scores, etc. There's also a TON of
ready-to-go artwork with that license..

Ah, If I had artistic chops I'd go for it myself..

Oh wait, this isn't the "What else do you collect" thread.. :)

Spongebob Squarepants seems like a logical choice, it is goofy fun
which probably would appeal to kids and adults. The license is probably
expensive, but it can't be that bad since SEGA has a redemption game
which seems to be doing well. The following was from a recent Replay
magazine:


SEGA'S SPONGEBOB STILL GOING STRONG
Sega Amusements last month released the fifth production run of their
SpongeBob Square Pants ticket redemption game with a sixth run likely.
This latest production run of SpongeBob was already sold out at press
time so any additional orders won't be shipped until early June.
"SpongeBob remains one of the hottest licenses available today," said
factory sales manager Ron Malinowski. "Our designers did a great job
developing game play elements that complement the license."

Definitely no more cramped than any Lawlor game with the typical
"left-side-midway-up-outcropping" of stuff- ie: Addams Family, Monopoly,
Whirlwind, TZ, RCT, etc...

Fun-playing game. You get a lot of stuff "crammed" in the game for the
money- that's my sales pitch to customers on this game when they come in the
showroom- a lot of pin for the money. FIVE flippers, TWO playfield levels,
lots of ramps, lots of multiball/modes, great colors and artwork-
attractive. You can't go wrong.

The game seems a bit easier to play and keep going (longer games times) than
some other more challenging games- veteran players may find it a bit on the
easy side. But that kind of thing appeals to novice and casual buyers-
they're more drawn to a game that isn't a drain-monster- it comes across as
more player-friendly.

Its no wonder they did 4 runs of them- we've never been able to keep them in
stock.

If we're talking about themes with worldwide appeal, then my New Jersey
roots have to show. How about a Bruce Springsteen and the E Street Band
machine? It could have:

a Tunnel of Love
a River
a tour mode
band member modes
ticket booth
Scalper mode
a jukebox
a Ghost (of Tom Joad)
not to mention all the song based items

this list could go on and on......and my wife wouldn't have a say on
whether or not I could buy this one!!!

Agreed. I've never sat in on a meeting when themes and names are
discussed,
but I'm sure company politics can come into play. Look at Capcom, Cloud
9
became breakshot and flipper football was produced instead of big bang
bar.
Not all companies use their people wisely. LTG :) 

well, they were smart enough to not make a game that was over budget on
bom and that didn't earn on test. heck, capcom made less than 5k games
total in their existance, who can say if they had any wise people to
use in the first place?
