Retro Pinball LLC is a new coin operated pinball manufacturer. The company was formed in March of 2007, and is owned by four partners; Herb Silvers, Gene Goodman, Reinhard Bangerter, and Mike Patz. The idea behind the company is the brain child of Herb, and Reiny.

And thier plan?  To bring classic pinball back to the industry, with all new technology and features that have never been seen in pinball before. In July of 2007 they signed an agreement with Gottlieb Development to remake some of the best Gottlieb titles and they are also planning on designing thier own pinball machines. The first table they are bringing out is Gottlieb’s 1967 King Of Diamonds. 

It’s great to hear of a new pinball manufacturer entering the fray, and I wish them all the best for the future. Who knows, I could be playing one of thier tables at the ATEi if all goes well!

Keep your eyes peeled for thier website that is currently in the works, which will be up and running soon.  Click on the King of Diamonds picture below to enlarge.

    Wow, this is a surprise. Competition is good though, hopefully we’ll see even more of an upswing in pinball now.
