Today is the day where Stern All-Access Insiders can begin ordering Limited Edition models for Foo Fighters, the latest design from Stern Pinball and the second game by Jack Danger of Dead Flip Pinball Streaming. To entice buyers beyond the theme, they’ve rolled out the official product page for it on their site, which includes model photos as well as this new game trailer:
The game pits the Foo Fighter band against evil attacking aliens, alluding to the origination of the term that came out of WW2 and unexplained UFO sightings. There are three models as usual (Pro, Premium, LE), with Pros starting at $6999 MSRP. Here’s a link to the game’s Features Matrix [PDF]
Here’s a description of the what’s going on with the theme from the official page:
Stern’s Foo Fighters machines bring the Foo Fighters concert experience home as players are immersed in an epic pinball adventure featuring 15 iconic songs spanning the band’s expansive catalog, including All My Life, Best of You, Breakout, Everlong, Holding Poison, I’ll Stick Around, Learn to Fly, Monkey Wrench, My Hero, Run, Something from Nothing, The Pretender, This is a Call, Times Like These, and Walk.
More than two years in the making and with creative input from the band’s own Dave Grohl, Nate Mendel, Pat Smear, Chris Shiflett, Rami Jaffee, and the late, great Taylor Hawkins, Stern’s Foo Fighters is a top-shelf pinball machine—and so much more. An entire new universe has been developed with jaw-dropping hand-drawn artwork and custom animations including “Foo Fighters Saturday Morning Action Time!”—a fictional TV series chronicling the band’s quest to save rock and roll… AND THE WORLD! Join Foo Fighters on this rescue mission to thwart the evil, mysterious alien Overlord and his army of bots. Search the Area 51 upper playfield to break into and unleash pinball chaos. Jump in the van for a righteous tour of duty to save humanity from extinction and let rock rule!
What are your thoughts – looking to get one for your location or man cave?
Looks good but is not something I consider for the basement.
I’m currently still waiting how the software of 007 developes and how much the Bond on a stick toy actually will do then and if it really justifies a $2700 difference in MSRP.
