    This is confirmation I have from a friend who is a pinball Distributor.

    That there is going to be a Transformers Pinball Machine coming out from Stern.

    Stern Pinball is one of the only companies left making Pinball machines. Word from my friend is it will feature all three live action movies.

    Here is their site : STERN Pinball

    I would expect a official announcement this weekend or sometime soon.

    It has a planned release of September 2011.

    a pinball machine with a large picture of skids and mudflap is probably going to sell like hot cakes.. if the hot cakes were dipped in a dirty litter box and regurgitated by a cat.

    Glancing at the title I was hoping that it would be a downloadable table for Pinball FX on the 360. I guess I'll just have to be happy with the Marvel ones.

    Collecticon.org has a pic of the protoplayfield. This game will be out after the current release, Tron.:wink:  I will probably have some video when it goes out on test.

    LOL I had the original PB machine from G1. I may have to pick this up for sheer nostalgia.

    Yeah we've known about this for some time. Now the question is can I fit it in with my other 5 pinball machines or will I have to sell one to make room

    When I saw pinball machine in the title, I was expecting a . . . 'real', full size pinball game. Ah well.



    For the worse.

    What games you have? I have 10 that you can see in my collection pics.
    I've known for quite a while too. I didn't want to say anything because I know everyone in the pinball industry and play in pinball tournaments. World Pinball Player Rankings I'm ranked 22nd in the world right now.



    Stern makes 3 different versions right now.

    A Costco or "Light Version" Doesn't have all the toys that a regular version has.

    Regular production which you'll see everywhere on the street.

    A "Limited edition" which will cost probably upwards of $5k and have more toys on there and special features.

    I was JUST talking about this this week, and everyone agreed Stern was probably going to be the one to do it. I hope they do a good job.

    Wish there were more places that put in full-sized pinball machine. I've asked about them for our movie theatre, but the opinion is you need someone around all the time who can fix them, and we don't. :(

    The TF1 pinball machine from Target was $20

    Thought this might be another "kiddy" one, guess not.

    Yeah, movie theaters or mall arcades would be a great place to have these, except I see more and more arcades closing..folks game at home now.
