Lord of the Rings Limited Edition Pinball pictures

December 16, 2009

While looking around the rec.games.pinball forums on Google, I caught a link to a photobucket account of some pictures showing off the new Lord of the Rings Limited Edition pinball machine. It’s been a little strange that we have heard/seen very little of this up until now but I guess that is due to the fact that the game is just started to make into the hands of collectors/distributors. Only 500 of these are being made and while this limited edition is lacking things like a couple of the figurines (since those figure are not made anymore), it still looks really cool. LOTR LE is already quite popular with fans, with many who consider the original to be the finest STERN made pinball ever, that alone is setting the game apart in our poll for the Pinball Game of the Year.

Stern prepping a Lord of the Rings Limited Edition pin?

September 18, 2009

From the looks of it, I would say that this is quite likely. While we all are waiting to see how Big Buck Hunter pinball will turn out, I have heard that they also might be doing lotrpinanother run of Lord of the Rings pinball, with a few special changes from gold trim to being signed by Gary Stern. The details on this can be found on the front page of Pinballsales.com and they are currently taking pre-orders for this game which is supposed to be released sometime next month. You can click on the image to the right to see the page or go to Pinballsales.com. One question I have about this one is – why now? I don’t know of anything happening in the LOTR world that would have prompted this (expect for the very recent announcement about The Hobbit getting the green light) so I am surprised that this didn’t happen sooner. Better late than never, right?
