I was lucky enough growing up to be close to an arcade. You know, those places you went to play video games before consoles were in every home? While I was never very good at pinball, I do remember them being simple enough. Get the ball locked, release for multiball and go nuts. Things have certainly changed.
Stern Pinball is currently finishing work on a custom made Metallica pinball machine. When I say “a” machine, I should really say a series of machines. There will be three total. The pro, which is your entry level model, the premium which comes with a few extra bells and whistles and finally the limited edition, Master of Puppets model. Each series comes with it’s own identifying backglass, courtesy of artist Donny Gillies, so you can distinguish yours from all the rest. Other markers inslude signatures on the Puppets machine and alternative trim.
If you want one of your own you’re going to need to head over to the Stern Pinball store and fill out a form. As you probably guessed they don’t advertise pricing on the page. If you buy one let us know where you live, we promise not to break in while you’re away.
