If you don't remember the 70s then you were on drugs.
If you remember playing pinball in the 70s you were having a good time.

Definitely lots of retro Bally.
Can't wait to see the total package.

Well this has my wallet wriggling. I wake up and login in to the computer and the first email is a link to the announcement with an image from the debut album - and it is Peter Criss. Playfield artwork is hand drawn by my favorite artist - Kevin O'Connor. Setlist is all the classic line up's work except Lick It Up. They sound re recorded by the cover band, so if I can replace it with the harder original version AND the hand drawn art has the original 4 - then I'll order an LE today.

If it plays lie TWD LE - Then I'll be VERY happy.. Let's see if Stern have listened to the fans, or the band..

Some of the artwork is borrowed from the original machine. Pop Bumpers are the classic style. Some sort of "floating ball" or an opportunistic shot of a flyball ?

It all looks promising doesn't it.  Hopefully game play is up there as well.  Every chance this will be a Stern top seller for sure, should be in the top 3 you'd think.

Well congrats to the KISS fans out there.  The signs are very promising and the hand drawn art is a GREAT sign.

So this presents an interesting dilemma for the die hard KISS fans who are also pin heads.

I know a lot of the KISS memorabilia is left NIB.  So does this mean that you buy 2 LE's.  One to play and one to leave NIB?   #@# ()

That's what I will be doing. Just got off the phone with another diehard, and it looks like there are at least 4 LE's that will be ordered off the pack of the photos. The art package needs more scrutiny, but it is plain to see they are avoiding the cover band line up with several references to the Bally 78 machines.

The hand drawn art is most likely to do with the original line up and the fact it worked so well with Metallica.
