The next STERN pinball machine is TRON!

There is a new update over at PinGame Journal about the next Stern machine, which is TRON.  It looks pretty cool - three flippers, plenty of ramps.  It's from the same team that made Iron Man and Avatar.  Plus it's got the Daft Punk music from the soundtrack.  I look forward to seeing this thing on location!  I have yet to play their new Rolling Stones game yet.  Anyone played that yet?


  1. I had the good fortune of being able to play pretty-much all the new Stern games (including the Rolling Stones pin) at the Michigan Pinball Expo a couple weeks back. The RS game was a hoot. I've never been a huge Stones fan, so I wasn't enamored, but it did have this figure of Mick Jagger which swooshes back and forth across mid-playfield. It was sort of fun because, while I THINK he only functions as an obstacle and doesn't deal out any points (I'm still a noob, so don't quote me on Mick's functionality or lack thereof) it was still great fun to whack the bjesus out of him with a well-placed silver-ball to the shins. Hope you get a chance to play it!

    P.S. Just got Drop Target #2 today. I devoured it within the first half-hour of opening the envelope. Jon's Airbender mock-ups were NUTZ!!! ...and Alec, I'm really enjoying your "Zeros to Heroes" comic. Always can't wait for the next DT installment. Keep it up guys.

  2. Sounds fun, Ryan! I'll have to keep an eye out for it. Hopefully I can play it soon. Glad to hear you enjoyed issue #2! Jon and I are already scheming on issue #3, which should be out by the end of the summer. All details will be posted on this blog!
