The first original pinball game of the year is now available for purchase by commercial and residential customers alike, the previously announced Mustang Pinball machine by Stern. We covered the Pro model but with the announcement of the official game release, Stern has also now unveiled the Premium and Limited Edition models. From the press release:
“Stern Pinball’s Pro model, designed for arcades and other public spaces, features Mustangs from the past five decades. The Boss Premium model focuses on an array of Boss Mustang models while the 50-Years-of-Mustang Limited Edition machine is signed by the game designer and contains exclusive commemorative game features and art from the 1965 original through the all-new 2015 Mustang GT. Each game includes real Mustang sounds and a Sony Music soundtrack of eight generational cruising tunes to give players the visceral experience of driving a Mustang. The Boss Premium and 50-Years-of-Mustang Limited Edition models feature genuine Ford Mustang chrome pony emblems on the speaker display panels, unique art packages, additional drop targets, an interactive turntable feature, a stainless steel crossing ramp and eight color-changing LED shot arrows to lead players on a unique racing experience.
The games incorporate a mix of classic pinball features and cutting-edge technology to let players race with some of the greatest Mustangs of all time and build a dream collection as they progress through the game. The playfield invites players to go drag racing, rallying, drifting and road racing as they string a series of shots together in pursuit of a high score. “
The pricing is: Pro Version: $5,395 (MSRP); Premium Version: $7,495 (MSRP); Limited Edition Version: $8,495 (MSRP). Once again the rumor had been that this would use an LCD ended up wrong. Like Star Trek, the Premium and LE versions use multi-colored LEDs for eight of the targets.
