Led Zeppelin Pinball Machine Launched

Led Zeppelin Pinball Machine Launched this week by Stern Pinball.

Following hot on the heels of our October “Led Zeppelin Pinball Machine: Pinball Rumour Mill” blog post, Stern Pinball has now announced the release of its new Led Zeppelin pinball machine.

Formed in London in 1968, Led Zeppelin consisted of vocalist Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist and keyboardist John Paul Jones, and drummer John Bonham. Together they became one of the best-selling bands with estimated record sales of 300 million units worldwide. In 1995 Led Zeppelin was inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame for their innovative and influential impact on the entire music industry.

Ten Iconic Led Zep Songs

In this high energy rock and roll pinball concert experience, pinball and music are fused together. Players are transported back to Led Zeppelin’s early days and tour the world from 1968-1980. As if players were members of the band playing its music, their play updates game features at the start of each verse and chorus of ten iconic Led Zeppelin songs: Good Times Bad Times, Whole Lotta Love, The Song Remains the Same, Rock and Roll, Trampled Under Foot, Ramble On, Kashmir, Immigrant Song, Black Dog, Communication Breakdown.

There is no speech from the band in the game. Instead, American comedian, actor, writer and musician Brendon Small provides the voice calls. However, the unmistakable faces of all four band members: frontman Robert Plant, guitarist Jimmy Page, bassist John Paul Jones and drummer John Bonham are emblazoned on the playfield.

Game Trailer

The Pro, Premium and global release of just 500 Limited Edition Led Zeppelin pinball machines all feature a custom-moulded Hindenburg Zeppelin toy, based on the iconic imagery from the Led Zeppelin I album. When lit, the Zeppelin toy scores speed locks on the player’s musical journey to Zeppelin multiball.  A custom Swan Song Records Icarus sculpted leaper toy takes flight when smashed by the chaotic pinball. A 3-bank of drop targets, 3 custom steel ramps, and 3 flippers keep the pinball action rolling.

There are 4 Spell out rules for racking up scores and opening opportunities of game advancement: L-E-D, Z-E-P, R-O-C-K and R-O-L-L. This consists of 4 R-O-C-K Stand-Up Targets light Zeppelin Speed Locks, 3 L-E-D Stand-Up Targets and 3 bank Z-E-P drop targets which add action and rebound shots to help complete L-E-D & Z-E-P. Drop Targets can be swept with the upper right flipper.

To give the game the perfect immersive Led Zep atmosphere, players can select the song choice at the start of every ball, plus all models feature an all-new software controlled 10 band graphic equalizer, so you can tune the sound to your particular liking!

Bringing Pinball & Music Together

“There is nothing more energizing and fun than bringing pinball and music together,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc.  “Partnering with Led Zeppelin, we created a one-of-a-kind pinball experience.  It’s our dream goal to create a pinball machine with this iconic rock band.”

The pinball machine boasts its own highly individual Led Zeppelin styled cabinet art, provided by Stephen Jensen. The Pro Edition takes its artwork for the Led Zeppelin III album, while the Premium model turns to the band’s first release, simply called Led Zeppelin for its cabinet, backbox and translite art. The top-of-the-range Limited Edition model uses the Icarus character, drawn by Joe Petagno, which never appeared on a Led Zeppelin album cover, but forms the legendary logo of the band’s record label, Swan Song Records.

deeproot RAZA Pinball Machine

deeproot’s Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland or RAZA Pinball Machine has finally been launched. Available in both Arcade Edition and XTRA Edition, which is limited to a production run of just 300 machines, this original themed pinball machine is bursting with originality and innovation.

deeproot pinball exists to elevate pinball ownership through exciting narrative-driven pinball experiences featuring immersive, interactive worlds under glass, by building value into every part of their business and innovative product lines. And it has to be said that in RAZA, deeproot appears to have achieved just that.

Designed by John Popadiuk, who worked on titles such as World Cup Soccer, Tales of the Arabian Nights and Theatre of Magic for Midway back in the 1990s, along with Cirqus Voltaire and Star Wars for Williams Electronics, Retro Atomic Zombie Adventureland is packed full of immersive features which engage the player at every turn.

RAZA Pinball Machine Original Theme

The original theme of the RAZA pinball machine centres around an alien invasion led by Ned, the evil alien Invader. Angela, the heroic rebel princess, destroys a gravity drive which sends the alien flying saucers crashing into Adventureland, an amusement park built on an old graveyard and disused nuclear power plant. The crash releases xenon gas which brings the dead to life and Ned leads a zombie army to take over the world. You meanwhile roam around Adventureworld having fun, making life difficult for Ned and helping Angela deal with the Zombies.

Gameplay & Features

According to Popaduik’s interview with This week in Pinball, “The game has stuff in each section of the game. Working around we have a double level “spook house” kickback on the left….something new, a rotating duck gallery target bank, double spinners, the “dizzy” which is like a floating TOTAN lamp, big zombie roller coaster ramps, an underground “xenon gas” tube area for ball locks, motor cycle jump device, new magna diverters and magna save and of course the classic swinging target from the 1960s you can bash, rollover buttons and the “atomic shop” to start modes and multi balls. Lots of other small items. The Ferris wheel is there too and shuttles the ball forward to the left “atomic” lane.

The idea behind all this is to give the player of any skill level something to flip, interact with, and feel accomplished. The ball is really wild and activates all this stuff, just like being in an amusement park. The play is fast, big loops, nice ramps and super up/down playfield action. Kinda’ a mix of 90s design with some 1970s mixed in. Instead of giving the player just 1 or 2 new features, we have a lot more to learn about and keep you excited. and with the great rules designed in the games has some really deep paths and ultimate direction.

With all this the art package was created to make it feel like an outer space amusement park. So, lots of stuff buried in the design, art, type and style for people to discover…”

deeproot RAZA Pinball Machine

Featuring attractive original cabinet art, panoramic wrap backlit header art, Pinbar ultra-widescreen HD LCD colour multi-touchscreen display and quality stereo sound, deeproot’s new RAZA pinball machine is an exciting proposition for all pinball aficionados and orders for RAZA are now being taken.

Queen Pinball Machine – Pinball Rumour Mill

Is a Queen Pinball Machine on its way for 2021?

Rumours have been circulating about the possibility of a Queen pinball machine since a Stern Galaxy pin was spotted in a bar scene in the award winning Queen movie Bohemian Rhapsody. But was this a tenuous link, or a teasingly clever piece of product placement?

Heighway Pinball

In March 2017 at the Texas Pinball Festival, Heighway Pinball announced that their next two pinball machines, Queen and Playboy, would be licensed and designed by Barry Oursler. Oursler has an impressive CV of pinball design, spending the first 26 years of his career as a Game Designer with Williams/Bally/Midway. However, on 26th April 2018, Heighway Pinball closed the doors on its factory, laid off its employees, and was liquidated soon after. So, the Queen project ever came to fruition. Oursler is now the Game Designer at Deeproot Tech, based in San Antonio in Texas.

Pinball Brothers or Stern?

With the demise of Heighway Pinball, four of the Directors formed Pinball Brothers and it was rumoured the Queen pinball machine licence may have gone with them. If it did, then a Pinball Brothers Queen pinball should most definitely be on the cards.

If it didn’t, then on the basis that Bravado, Universal Music Group’s industry-leading merchandise and brand management company, who handles Queen’s merchandising – and this is the same Bravado who agreed the merchandising deal for The Beatles pinball machine – might well have set up a deal to licence the Queen pinball machine to Stern Pinball.

Mercury, May, Deacon & Taylor

Whether it be Pinball rothers or Stern, a pinball machine featuring Mercury, May, Deacon and Taylor could only turn out to be very special indeed. The flamboyance of Freddie coupled with Queen’s iconic imagery would make for sensational playfields, cabinets and backglass – and the soundtrack would have to rank amongst the best ever to come out of a pinball cabinet. We Are The Champions for a bonus play would be an absolute must, and how about Under Pressure for hurry ups and Another One Bites The Dust for the end of the game?

Queen Pinball – Here is Here First!

While we have no solid news about a Queen pinball machine at the moment, we promise to bring you the very latest news as soon as we have it. So the new Queen Pinball Machine – hear it here first!

Harry Potter Pinball Machine: Pinball Rumour Mill

A Stern Harry Potter Pinball Machine within the next couple of months?

Joe Kaminkow, who was part of the design team for Stern’s The Beatles pinball machine, has recently dropped a number of hints that Stern may at long last have a Harry Potter pinball machine on the way.

At the 2020 Virtual Pinball Expo, Kaminkow was reunited in an online seminar with the team that put together The Beatles pinball machine, when he dropped a couple of unsubtle Harry Potter clues that could be a hint as to the shape of things to come.

In the broadcast, Kaminkow introduces the idea of a Harry Potter pinball machine and then after Gary Stern has joined the seminar opens up further stating, “Gary and I have agreed we will not announce our Harry Potter game today, but maybe you never know… We will see you in the future and in the meantime go to Zynga.com and play Harry Potter Match that just came out a few weeks ago; ok.”

It must be pointed out at this point that Kaminkow is currently the Chief Game Designer at Zynga… However, it must further be pointed out that this is also how Kaminkow first announced Stern’s The Beatles!

Hanging at Hogwarts

This latest hint toward a Hogwarts styled game follows years of speculation, fuelled a couple of years ago when Keith Elwin shared his visit with George Gomez and Jody Dankberg to Universal Studios on social media, with the comment “Hanging at Hogwarts!”

Harry Potter Next?

So, with Stern due another major release within the next couple of months, could Harry Potter be Stern Pinball’s next title? And if so, what is it going to look like?

With eight films in the series there many features which could be included in a Harry Potter pinball machine and perhaps just too many for one pinball machine. But a raised Quidditch pitch playfield, perhaps featuring a captive golden ball to represent the golden snitch – and moving ramps, as used in Stern’s X-Men Limited Edition to act as Hogwarts moving staircases must surely be givens. Playfield projectors could provide the Dementors – and how about some skill shots to help cast a few bonus spells?

Hear it Here First!

Whatever features are included in a Harry Potter pinball machine, it is sure to be a huge hit, with huge demand to match. So, make sure to keep an eye out on the Pinball Heaven blog for future updates. Here it here first!

Led Zeppelin Pinball Machine: Pinball Rumour Mill

There has been speculation about a Led Zeppelin pinball machine since before the start of the Millennium, however since the early part of this year rumours have started to increase. So, is a Led Zeppelin pinball machine soon to be on the way and if so, what will it look like and who will be producing it?

Homebrew Led Zep Pinball

There currently appears to be a groundswell of support for a Led Zeppelin themed game, with an impressive homebrew Led Zeppelin pinball machine, based on Bally’s 1976 Freedom, appearing on the scene just 12 months ago.

Custom Made Led Zeppelin Backglass

As a development from Freedom, the pin featured a brand new skill shot and 360 degree pop bumper, custom made Led Zeppelin backglass and the playfield and cabinet decorated with the Led Zeppelin symbols created by the band in 1971, each of which represents a particular band member:

  • Jimmy Page’s Zoso symbol is taken from a sigil, or ritualistic sign for Saturn
  • John Paul Jones’ symbol is a non-interlaced triquetra overlaying a circle, taken from page 33 of Rudolf Koch’s 1930 book “The Book of Signs”, where it is annotated as a sign to exorcise evil spirits
  • John Bonham’s symbol comprising three intersecting circles, is from page 32 of the same book, denoting an early sign for the holy trinity
  • Robert Plant’s feather symbol is most likely a simple merging of two symbols from the Feather Symbol of Truth illustration on page 105 of James Churchward’s 1933 book “The Sacred Symbols of Mu”

So, as well as featuring images of the band, any new pinball machine would have to prominently feature the four mystical Led Zeppelin symbols.

Led Zeppelin Pinball Machine

Stairway to Heaven Bonus Play

And what self-respecting Led Zep pin would miss out on a Stairway to Heaven raised ramp, skill shots into the two front doors of the Physical Graffiti terraced houses and a Presence obelisk planted in the dead centre of the playfield just for the pure mystical hell of it? Surely these must be Led Zep pinball givens.

Led Zep Licencing

Reaching a licence agreement with a brand such as Led Zeppelin may not be a simple task. However, with the release of the first ever Beatles machine last year, it may well be that Stern Pinball are in prime position to perform an encore with Led Zeppelin. And furthermore, given that the Beatles was a modern take on Stern Electronics’ 1980 Seawitch, it could be that Led Zeppelin would also a modern take on another old classic, such as Quicksilver, which immediately followed Seawitch in 1980.

Led Zeppelin Pinball Machine – You Heard it Here First!

So a Stern remake of Quicksilver featuring Jimmy Page, John Paul Jones, John Bonham and Robert Plant, a Stairway to Heaven ramp, Physical Graffiti skill shots, the mighty Presence obelisk, plus a liberal smattering of Led Zep mystical symbols and produced by Stern as a modern take on Quicksilver; all of a sudden our new Led Zeppelin pinball machine is starting to come together…

And with Stern’s excellent video projector technology beaming concert highlights directly onto the playfield, complemented by an uprated, multi-speaker sound system, a Stern Led Zeppelin pinball machine is really starting to sound like a whole lotta love.

Now where’s my Brandy & Coke?

The Best Selling Pinball Machine of All Time

Released in March 1992, the Addams Family pinball machine is the best selling pinball machine of all time. Designed by Pat Lawlor and Larry DeMar and manufactured by Midway under the Bally name, the Addams Family pinball machine is based on the 1991 film of the same name and features custom speech by the stars of the film, Raul Julia and Anjelica Huston.

Addams Family Pinball Machine Premium Restoration Introduction

Addams Family Gameplay

The machine’s game card describes the game objective as being to “Explore the strange world of the Addams Family.” With that in mind there is no single player goal, though there are two central objectives:

Tour the Mansion: The Addams Family mansion is located in the centre of the playfield and has 12 rooms, each of which offers a different award. Rooms are awarded to the player from the electric chair shot in the centre of the player field. When a room is given to the player the electric chair light goes out until the player conducts a Bear Kick, however some other switches will relight it, but only temporarily. Best practice is for the player to activate multiple mansion rooms in order to gain the best scores. Once every award is collected, a wizard mode called Tour the Mansion becomes available.

 
Vault Multiball: In the top-right section of the playfield is a blue bookcase, representing the bookcase that Gomez shows Uncle Fester in the movie, hiding the entrance to the family vault. Hits to the bookcase award letters in the word GREED. Once the word is completed, the bookcase turns to expose the vault entrance. A shot to the vault locks the ball for future multiball play, or starts multiball if two balls have been previously locked. The bookcase opens for certain other modes of play as well. If a ball enters the vault while the bookcase is still closed, it immediately opens and the player is credited with locking the ball.

With additional gameplay features including Graveyard At Max, The Mamushka, Hit Cousin It, Quick Multiball, Fester’s Tunnel Hunt, Séance, Thing Multiball, Lite Extra Ball and Raise The Dead, it is little wonder the Addams Family pinball machine has long been credited with starting a the boom in pinball popularity.
