Led Zepplin Pinball Machine?

Recommended Posts

Hi all,

I’m a UK based Twitch streamer (Pinball Club - if that tickles your fancy, please give us a follow). I stream new games as they get released into the U.K., such as the upcoming Guns N Roses machine. The latest rumour is a Led Zepplin pinball machine by Stern. (link here,  not my website - https://www.pinball.co.uk/blog/led-zeppelin-pinball-machine-pinball-rumour-mill/)

With prices starting at £7k for most pro level machines and going up to £13k for LE level ones, probably not something for all fans. Would this be something that fans would go for too?? If it gets released, I’d love to share my streams with you all to get a fans perspective. 
 

Band based pinball machines aren’t rare, in fact ACDC and Iron Maiden are my favourite. I never really loved the bands before, but since getting them, am a huge fan of both 

Do you think it would go down well with fans or be mainly for pinball collectors such as me? Would the band translate well to pinball?

Look forward to your thoughts.

A million points for keeping the ball alive for the duration of a 1975 rendition of Dazed and Confused!

34:01??? 
 

I mean, no, probably not going g to be done by me. Some have 8 minute song “wizard modes” - that might be a record though.

I do love pinball machines as icons of American culture and a proper Led Zeppelin machine would undoubtedly be well received. The unlicensed machine in that link is certainly impressive and I'd love to have it, though I it can't possibly command anywhere near $8K-$13K in my opinion. I'm sure you are familiar with Stern's machine for The Rolling Stones. There's one in Tokyo I played quite a bit for quite awhile. I gave some consideration to buying one but have held off thus far. If they did a Led Zeppelin machine of the same caliber I'd be sorely tempted to buy one. It would be great if they could incorporate some stage fog effects and Jimmy as the wizard. For example if you hit the Jimmy Page figurine 10 times on one play the machine would do a unique light display with accompanying audio to compliment it.

The one that would command that sort of price would be made by a commercial pinball company, that one in the article was a “homebrew” one. 
 

The closest I can really demonstrate is the Iron Maiden machine which was done by Stern. They are the ones that apparently have the licence.

OMG...this along with Martina Navratilova stopping about with her bootleg LZ scarf at Earl's Court to Jimmy's initial plaque at Philips' Harbor...we are doomed. :watchingyou:

Haha I wasn't criticizing Dazed; just linking the game to an element of Zeppelin. I love Dazed; the longer the better!

How 'bout this? Tune the bumpers and bells so if you hit them in the proper sequence, you can play Bonzo's Montreux. 😃

I did prefer the renditions of How Many More Times though...
