    Here are the first pics of the new Transformers Pinball from Stern. No pricing has been released yet. I believe this is a pic of the production model. You can definitely see the Autobots vs. Decepticons elements alluded to in the Transformers teaser video. It has a center Optimus Prime toy shot (like we speculated) surrounded by five other lit shots. The center playfield features six Autobots and six Decepticons for (presumably) modes depending on your side. The cabinet art is refreshingly Shia Lebeouf free — choosing instead to feature only Optimus and Megatron on the backglass with the sideart showing (insert echo shout) Transformers… in… space (Autobots shown on the right but the Decepticons are on the left side)!

    Playfield elements include a Megatron vehicle form with rapid fire multiball and illuminated eyes, Optimus Prime elevating ramp, Bumblebee captive ball target, Decepticon laser-cut steel ramp, Ironhide character ramp, Devastator pop bumpers, All Spark Cube eject hole, Autobot/Decepticon spinning target, Cybertron zenith orbit shot, and “roll out!” ramps. The LE edition seems to have some differences which include a Megatron robot form, Starscream figure, shaker motor, illuminated bottom arch, transparent windows in ball guides, LED general illumination, and will be limited to 500 editions.

    There also appears to be four, count ‘em four, versions of this game. There’s the Pro edition and Limited Edition, but there will also be a Autobot (crimson) and Decepticon (violet) Limited Collector’s Edition for each. These Collector’s Editions will feature full cabinet trim in the versions color, unique backglass (of either Autobot or Decepticon), playfield-mounted Optimus/Megatron plate, Gomez signature under hard coat, unique designer edition “Vector Sigma Data Track” QR codes and will be limited to 99 game each. Here is the breakdown sheet of options.

    Cool, they still build real pinball machines? The latest I have seen must be from 1992.

    Yup. Stern is the last manufacturer of pinball machines, and they practically make them all in my backyard, hah.

    Hopefully I'll see this somewhere out in the "wild". I won't cross my fingers that the gameworks or D&B out here will install one, though.

    The Gameworks in Schaumburg will definitely have a pro model on test sometime next month. D&B doesn't get pinballs anymore :(  I'll be getting an Autobot LE.

    Thank goodness that Gameworks is the closest place to me, then, hah!

    The last time I played a pinball game at gameworks, the sidelanes were so worn that the ball literally got stuck. I think it was a Simpsons table? I couldn't even shake the ball loose after I'd registered the tilt sensor, I'd shaken it so much. A new table would certainly be welcome!
