    Here are the first pics and video of three different "Limited Edition" pinballs from Stern. They are making 500 combo editions, 125 Autobot, and 125 Decepticon. I should be getting my Autobot edition #007 next month. I cannot post prices but if interested you can contact my friend Trent from Tilt amusements who is a distributor for Stern.

    STERN Pinball - Transformers LE

    If you look to the left of the left flipper there is a piece of metal laser cut which is Megatron's signature. The Autobot edition will have Prime's signature to the right of the right flipper. The combo edition doesn't have these signature's on there.

    Thanks! Can't wait to get my game!

    Yes. They are used in the game and are interactive. All these toys featured below are only in the "Limited Edition" games except for Prime.


    Starscream is used here and rotates on a disc to try and block a target on the back wall.

    Ironhide is used here to rock back and forth a mini playfield.

    Ramp elevates to bash Optimus Prime. Hit him a bunch of times to start Optimus Prime multiball!

    Megatron figure rises and falls with recoiling action cannon. Balls fire out when you start Megatron Multiball!

    Here are the three different "LE" versions. Decepticon edition wrapped in violet armor with Con only backglass,side cabinet art, and Megatron's signature. Combo edition wrapped in half violet and half crimson armor with combo backglass. Autobot edtition wrapped in crimson with Bot only backglass, side cabinet art, and Prime's signature. All "LE" games come with leds, numbered plaque and low #'s have designer George Gomez's signature on there.

    Whatever happened to the days when pinball machines had their own unique plastic figurines and devices? Nowadays, they are all filled with toys you can buy off the shelf. Whatever happened to the giant mechanical T-rex head that came down and ate my ball when I played Jurassic Park pinball? Whatever happened to that stuff?

    I'm not a big pinball fan, but I'd definitely play these if I saw them.

    Eh, yeah I guess you're right. But it's not likely they are they going to make another machine. I guess I always had a fondess for the gimmicks of pinball machines.

    The music soundtrack in the game is G1 but redone by today's tastes. You can pick your side Bot or Con before you start your game. Gameplay will be different depending on what side you choose.


    Netkid, those were the days when arcades were the place to go. There use to be several big arcades in my area and most of them closed down. Gameworks and Dave & Busters are the big ones now. Dave and Busters doesn't even carry pinball.:(  Our Gameworks is a big supporter of pinball. They have a bi-yearly tournament there, launch parties for the newest pins, and now they're starting a monthly Tuesday night tournament. There's not a lot of time to work on these games and less games are being produced than years ago.
