Game of Thrones Premium Pinball Machine

Today Stern Pinball released the much awaited artwork for the Premium edition of Game of Thrones pinball machine that will be for sale from Pinball Heaven in the UK with immediate effect.

After a somewhat lukewarm reception to the artwork for the Game of Thrones Pro and Limited Edition versions many customers were putting their hopes on a different artwork package for the premium edition of this much awaited pinball machine and it looks like Stern Pinball have got it right this time.

With a cool mini playfield with moving dragon and designed by legendary designer Steve Richie then it looks like it could be a hit for Stern Pinball.

We will have this game in stock in December 2015 ready for Christmas delivery and we will be showing the PRO version in Manchester, Event City on 10-11 October 2015.

Enter a whole new realm with Game of Thrones Premium and Limited Edition Pinball models. Vastly different from the Pro model, both Premium and Limited Editions feature a massive and challenging Castle upper playfield with a second set of full size flippers, shots and an animated Dragon. Both models feature dazzling, full-playfield, color-changing LED’s throughout the game. An Elevator serving two “floors” brings the ball up to the Castle where the players battle against Houses and Dragons. The second Elevator floor delivers the ball to the Iron Throne, where victories great and small can be celebrated. Amazing light shows and effects are a visual celebration of players’ victories.

Medieval Madness pinball machine lands in UK!

We finally got our hands on the first production Medieval Madness remake pinball machine today, its been 2 years in the making so we were naturally excited to see this game after all this time!  Was it worth the wait?  Sure was!

We were hoping to have the full container of MMr’s (Medieval Madness Remakes) by now but unfortunately the full container of our Limited Edition Pinball Machines is not ready to ship so for now we had to fly a Medieval Madness Pinball Machine over from the USA, hot off the production run!

So enough of looking at the box, lets get it open!

Its looking like a day I remember back in 1997 when the first Medieval Madness Pinball Machines from Williams came over.

b_MMR1

So time to get it into position and set this beauty up!

A quick check nothing has come loose during its long journey from Chicago, the home of Pinball for decades.  Yep, good to go, side down the glass, put the balls in and boom!  Its time to smack those trolls!

This is such a great pinball machine and what a credit to Planetary Pinball & Chicago Gaming.  The quality is fantastic and it plays exactly like the original Medieval Madness despite many technology changes, the only noticeable difference to the player is the colour display replacing the traditional orange dot matrix display.  Chicago Gaming have a massive software update for the display which will fully colourise it with resolution change also, due to the flexibility of a standard LCD display vs a traditional 32 x 128 array of orange dots!

This pinball machine will be on our stand at Play Expo, Manchester, 10-11 October 2015 along with many other pinball machines for sale from the UK’s number 1 pinball specialist – Pinball Heaven.  We are the sole distributor for Medieval Madness and other subsequent “remake” games from Planetary Pinball.  I can’t wait to see more classic Williams Pinball Machines rolling off the production like – such classics as Attack From Mars, Monster Bash, is a new Addams Family too much to hope for I wonder?

Have a look at the product page for all the pictures.

Stern LORD OF THE RINGS pinball machine balrog wiring harnesses

Today we are busy making looms to replace the frequently broken BALROG wiring harness.  Easy to install part and available for sale on our UK website now.

If you have problems with intermittent operation of your BALROG switch/lamp then this is probably the problem, due to the 1/4 turn motion back and forth, the wires just break in half, this in itself can cause switch problems if the voltage from the flash lamp touches the switch matrix wires.

FIX IT NOW BEFORE ITS TOO LATE!

Circus Voltaire and Addams Family pinball repair visit

Pinball machines are big lumps, lets face it!  We offer an in home repair service as well as full workshop facilities for more complex problems at our Preston workshop.

This photo was taken when repairing an Addams Family pinball and Circus Voltaire pinball, the Circus was doing all sorts of strange things, so weird its hard to describe, you would think it was blown logic on the switch matrix but actually, a lose ASIC chip was the culprit.

We added a LED kit to Circus Voltaire to go with the Addams Family which already had a full LED KIT.

We offer full workshop facilities in Preston (we can get your machine collected) plus onsite servicing anywhere in the North of England.  Regularly as far down as Birmingham and sometimes as far as Bristol, Worcester, Bath and even the Channel Islands!
