The latest from Stern Pinball -CES/Las Vegas

The Munsters!!! LOVE IT! Addams Family was patiently waiting for its counterpart for many years. :)


Although all the new ones are fun and entertaining to play, I was getting sick of the classic heavy metal bands and superhero releases as of late.


Hope they stick to more of these 60's/70's televisions themes like Batman 66' .

    I wish they would make their own IP. Still make a great table with an ordinary theme, so maybe we could buy a new machine at a cheaper price without the licensing that we all pay for.

    They really have gone all-in with targeting the late 50 and older white Male crowd with their machines for quite a long time. I suppose that is the demographic that played the most pinball in their youth and is still interested, judging from who I see at the NW pinball show every year.

    You are absolutely right! Its a late-baby boomer, to early Generation X target market.


    Growing up in the 70's, all we really had was pinball. It was Hip and groovy times! :)

    (Thank God for TV syndication in the 70's and 80's as well)


    To add, I agree its more focus on the male scene today, but it was VERY 50/50 back in pinball's heydays!

    They are the only ones who can afford the rising pinball prices. That's why.

    Great... another AC/DC. Super open and boring play field if you get the pro, thus making the only good game the premium or LE. I really feel bad for the people trying to keep pinball alive and buying the machines to route, when they're forced to buy the $8000 game.
