Look Morty! I'm a pinball machine! Pinball Rick!

Look Morty! I’m A Pinball Machine! I’m Pinball Rick!

At long last Rick and Morty has a pinball machine. Spooky Pinball’s newest creation has certainly caused a stir in the pinball world. So much so, that the machine sold out within a few hours of pre-sales going live. This was a first for Spooky — and likely in pinball history. The pin comes in […]

“Creature from the Black Lagoon”: He Came from the Depths of the Pinball Lagoon!

The Creature from the Black Lagoon is one of Universal’s most enduring monsters. The 1992 pinball machine celebrates his legacy. The 1954 black and white horror film came late compared to Universal’s other notorious monsters such as Dracula and Frankenstein. Yet he quickly became one of the most iconic monsters ever put to film. Collectors […]

Who Won Bleeding Cool’s First-Ever Pinball Mania?!

As all of you know, I’m really into pinball. I play it, I own machines, I accept challenges from people who don’t play it as much as I do — you know, the usual. For the past few months, Jeremy Conrad and I have been going back and forth trash talking about who the better […]

Stern Announces Star Wars Pinball Machine–Siths Protest In Anger

Stern has finally unveiled their newest pinball machine, and I’m actually pretty excited for it. Steve Ritchie’s Star Wars Pinball will be released later this year. Currently there’s only a video showing the machine off on the Star Wars Facebook page, and we have some screencaps from that to give you a good look while […]

Trying out Stern’s High Def Anti-Reflection Glass

According to the Stern website, their anti-reflection glass is supposed to block out any kind of reflection (mostly from the head of the machine) and it blocks 99% of UV rays. I don’t really need help protecting my machines from UV rays since I tend to not put them outside nor do I place them […]

Hold The Door! Game Of Thrones Pinball By Stern

Everyone seems to love HBO’s Game of Thrones, based on the books by George R.R. Martin. So Stern decided to cash in on this popularity and released their GoT pin back in 2015. The playfield was designed by pinball master Steve Ritchie (AC/DC, Spider-Man), and comes in pro, LE, and premium editions. There are differences to […]

It’s Bigger On The Inside: Dr. Who Pinball By Bally

Most of you reading this are aware of Dr. Who. While I’m not a big Dr. Who fan (I’ve seen maybe a handful of episodes), I am a big pinball fan. Bally released this game into the wild in 1992, long after Dr. Who’s initial TV debut, and long before a new generation of Whovians […]

Magneto Wants Your Balls: X-Men Pinball

Comics and pinball have been in bed with each other since the 70’s. The original Superman, Hulk and Spider-Man machines prove that. So it’s no surprise that X-Men would get the pinball treatment. Created by Stern and designed by John Borg in 2012, X-Men offers both a pro and two types of LE: Magneto and […]

Lauren Looks Back At Williams Pinball

In the landscape of pinball, there are dozens of manufacturers. At this point in time we don’t have that many (Stern being top dog currently) but back in pinballs (illegal) heyday we had a good selection of companies. One of which was Williams. In 1943 Harry Williams started Williams Manufacturing. His first seven products were […]

Pinup Girls With Arrows: Lady Robin Hood Pinball

Lady Robin Hood is a beautiful example of an early modern pinball machine. While this machine is a game of skill due to the three sets of flippers, there is still more chance than skill to this game. Gottlieb released Lady Robin Hood in 1948, but at a show in 1949 they presented two other […]

They Came From Mars! Attack From Mars Remake Coming This Year!

This weekend Chicago Gaming will be unveiling the brand new remake of the pinball classic Attack From Mars at the Texas Pinball Festival in Frisco, TX. For years rumors were flying about a remake, and finally those rumors can be put to rest. According to user hassellcastle on Pinside.com… “Game will be available in three […]

Flynn’s Arcade Has Pinball: TRON Pinball

TRON was the first modern machine we ever had in my house. I’ve been lucky enough to play a number of variations of the game, and I honestly think this is one of Stern’s finer machines. Created in 2011, there are 4 editions of the machine as well as a limited edition. Each edition comes […]
