Stern Pinball Announces Ghostbusters Pinball

Last time we talked about (GBI Blog Post, February 5, 2016) Stern’s Ghostbusters pinball we tilted the table along with just about everyone else. Earlier today Stern Pinball, Inc. posted the following press release:

Stern Pinball, Inc., the world’s oldest and largest producer of arcade-quality pinball machines, proudly announced today the availability of its much anticipated Ghostbusters pinball machine inspired by the original Columbia Pictures blockbuster “Ghostbusters” film. The Ghostbusters pinball machine will be available in Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models. The game will immerse players in the amazing and fun challenge of catching mischievous ghosts in an adventure-filled pinball environment capturing the world of Ghostbusters.

The Ghostbusters pinball experience highlights the humor of the film as the player progresses through the game. The game also includes custom speech by original “Ghostbusters” cast member, Ernie Hudson, who guides the player into becoming the newest member of the Ghostbusters team!

Ghostbusters pinball is designed to be easy to play but difficult to master. It features a moving interactive Slimer toy target and a fresh distinctive layout that integrates traditional pinball devices with unique multifunction two-way ramps featuring a magnetic diverter and scoring switches. In addition, the game features a modern take on a ball transfer target, combative open field drop targets, a ball eject target, a captive ball target and custom molded toys.

The Premium and Limited Edition models also feature an interactive ghost hologram target with animations, “para-normal” magnetic action slingshots, distinctive ramp architecture and additional custom molded toys.

All models feature beautiful and unique hand drawn art by renowned illustrator Jeremy Packer a.k.a. Zombie Yeti.

We were contacted by Stern Pinball in regards to the images. Whomever originally put them on-line wasn’t authorized. As such they and Sony have asked sites like ours to remove them. We’ve asked when the companies are ready to provide official details to keep us updated. As we can continue to support this upcoming Ghostbusters game/collectible.

Pinball collector and ghosthead below_radar_00 on Ghostbusters Fans posted what was leaked (sometimes hard to tell these days) photos of the upcoming Ghostbusters pinball table game from Stern Pinball.

The graphics had shown concept, a 3D rendering, and the inside of a real machine.

Concepts

By the concept art their may be two versions, a limited edition and a pro model. Their could also be a premium version if Stern Pinball releases one.


3D/Real Life

Photos also included a 3D rendering of the inside along with a realistic photo showing the inside of a Stern Pinball game. Which may or may not be for Ghostbusters.

During a discussion in this thread at Ghostbusters Fans below_radar_00 estimated prices. While he does give a price for a premium edition we’re choosing not to include it at this time.

  1. Pro models, usually for operators: $5,500 USD.
  2. LE models, for home market: $6,800 USD.

When we know more about pricing, progress, and release dates we can write more about Stern Pinball’s Ghostbusters table game.
