Stern Pinball issued a press release yesterday stating that the Black Spiderman pinball machine (that we first reported about in October) is now available in limited quantities. When they say limited, they really mean it – only 500 of these are being made. It’s the same game as other Spiderman pins – just with a different set of artwork related to the black suit Spidey seen in Spiderman 3. If you’re interested in reading the press release, hit the post break.

STERN PRESENTS BLACK SUITED SPIDER-MAN™ LIMITED EDITION PINBALL MACHINE
December 11, 2007-Spider-Man is back and this time in black! Stern Pinball, Inc. is making 500 limited edition BLACK SUITED SPIDER-MAN™ pinball machines that will never be built again. The Black Spider-Man is featured in Columbia Pictures’ SPIDER-MAN 3 as Peter Parker’s darker, more dangerous persona.
This collector piece has many exciting features, including: 1. a mirrored backglass, something that hasn’t been done in the pinball industry in about fifteen years; 2. chrome trim that includes side armor in the shape of a web; 3. new cabinet and backbox art that features Black Suited Spider-Man; 4. a shaker motor that makes game play even more exciting; and 5. a plaque on the backbox and a Certificate of Authenticity signed by Gary Stern.
Gary Stern says, “This game is stunning. And it must be the first pinball in a decade, more, with actual silk-screened backglass with real mirroring.”
Designed by Steve Ritchie, Lyman Sheats, and the engineering staff at Stern Pinball, BLACK SUITED SPIDER-MAN™ pinball machine includes iconic characters and content from the trilogy.
In the BLACK SUITED SPIDER-MAN™ pinball machine, you are Spider-Man. Your goal is to defeat the major villains from all three movies: Green Goblin from SPIDER-MAN, Doc Ock from SPIDER-MAN 2, and Sandman and Venom from SPIDER-MAN 3. There are detailed, vibrant toys of each of the four villains on the playfield with an associated shot. Defeat all four villains and experience Battle Royale!
