Stern Pinball announce Guardians of the Galaxy machine!

Stern Pinball today announced their latest game – Guardians of the Galaxy pinball machine, which is available in Pro/Premium/Limited Edition versions.

The Guardians of the Galaxy are a fictional intergalactic superhero team based on the successful American comic book series published by Marvel Comics.

The game will immerse players in a dynamic, challenging, and galactic pinball environment where Star-Lord, Rocket, Gamora, Drax the Destroyer, and Groot battle Ronan to stop him from using the Infinity Stone to destroy the galaxy.
“Guardians of the Galaxy is one of Marvel’s most exciting and successful franchises worldwide. We feel that this theme connects perfectly with pinball in creating a high energy pinball experience,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc. “Stern Pinball and Marvel Studios share a love for these memorable characters and have a long, successful history of collaboration.”

Stern’s Guardians of the Galaxy Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models are packed with features that provide an irresistible gameplay experience. Each game features a sculpted and interactive ball-eating Groot. In addition, a custom sculpted Rocket figure will keep players on their toes as it blasts the ball back at rocket speed. Color-changing inserts highlight the mysterious and interactive Orb, which opens to reveal the powerful Infinity Stone. The Limited Edition and Premium models also feature extra magnets, custom artwork, RGB lighting, and sculpted Groot arms that sprawl across the playfield.


In addition to the immersive theme and exciting gameplay experience, Stern Pinball’s SPIKE-2 electronic platform enables high-definition graphics and innovative animations on the LCD screen.

Retro pinball machine hire in Newcastle event

Pinball Machine Hire for Retro Event in Newcastle.

When throwing a 1950’s American style party you really need some vintage pinball machines oh, and some larger than life popcorn displays!

As part of our pinball machine hire we were asked if we could supply some vintage pinball machines for a 1950’s themed party, normally we only supply our vintage pinball machines for TV or promotional use as older pinball machines aren’t quite as hardy as modern games but as we had a couple of solid games which we have used for pinball shows without any problems so we agreed and this was the result… a night of fun for the lucky guests.


We used our vintage 1958 Roto Pool, 1976 Target Alpha (a really good game) and a 1960 Captain Kidd which was the last game by Gottlieb pinball machine to have wooden rails.  The Roto Pool was recently the star of a ITV show with David Dickinson.

This is the biggest popcorn we’ve ever seen!



At Pinball Heaven we love retro pinball machines (well Gottlieb ones), something about the artwork just oozes nostalgia.

We offer pinball machine hire in Lancashire, Manchester, Cheshire, Leeds, Cumbria, Yorkshire and the Midlands, occasionally we go further past Birmingham but please get in touch to discuss your pinball hire requirements.
