Whereas we’re nonetheless within the throes of Winter within the Northern hemisphere, Spring is simply across the nook, which signifies that a brand new pinball machine from Stern might be anticipated. Final evening I noticed a point out of their potential Spring 2020 launch on a number of pinball centered Fb pages, which regarded official sufficient, and as we speak Stern confirmed that with slightly tease on Fb.
In searching the same old sources for data, the rumors state that this one is a re-theme of the Star Wars Dwelling Pin. Whereas I’ve little curiosity within the theme (solely time I’d come throughout Heavy Metallic was seeing it within the assortment of flicks at a good friend’s home, however I’ve by no means watched it; there was additionally a Heavy Metallic arcade sport, however I’ve by no means performed it), I actually hope that they aren’t re-using that, as in my humble opinion, Star Wars is one among Stern’s/Steve Ritchie’s worst playfield layouts that’s much more irritating than it’s enjoyable.
Per this picture that has been floating round on the market (I’m unsure who posted it first, nevertheless it does match with the opposite picture, so it most likely got here from a distributor…however disgrace on whoever saved it with this horrible compression 😛 ), this isn’t one among Stern’s major releases although…simply one thing for true Heavy Metallic followers (sort of like Supreme or Primus). Attention-grabbing that as a substitute of developing with a set quantity that they’ll do Made To Order, which feels like a wise technique to go about it.
With this being an LE solely machine, one doesn’t need to despair should you’re hoping for one thing else this Spring. The rumors are stating that Stern’s subsequent extensive launch is Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles by John Borg (unsure which iteration of TMNT will probably be, if that’s true), with it coming alongside April or Could. What do you consider this one from the information proven about it thus far?
