What’s it gonna look like?
Stern is no stranger to Iron Maiden pinball machines, having produced one in 1981.
However, that had nothing to do with the iconic rock band, which had only been recording for a year at the time.
Since then, only a few fans made their own Iron Maiden custom pins and artwork, like this flyer art by Pinside forum member MacLean.
User-created art like this just shows how popular Iron Maiden is. Pinball purists have been crying out for this machine for decades.
And, a few years ago, some talented types at Pinball Bulbs converted a Rolling Stones machine into a custom Iron Maiden pin.
With playfield art and toys based on the band, it also features lots of cool sound effects and, of course, some of the biggest hits from Maiden’s back catalogue.
What’s it gonna sound like?
The short answer at this stage is that we don’t know. But the track in the video is Wasted Years, from the 1986 album Somewhere In Time.
We’re expecting the absolute cream of Maiden releases from across a career spanning 40 years. So although we don’t actually know which tracks to expect, we know it’s gonna be Maiden, and that means it’s gonna rock.
And of course these machines will feature Stern’s impressive built-in sound systems, which really bring the tracks to life.
So it’s taken 37 Wasted Years for them to clinch the rights and release this officially-licenced machine. It’ll be crammed full of unique features and exciting gameplay, like Stern’s other rock band-themed machines, and of course some of Iron Maiden’s biggest tracks will be reproduced in glorious stereo sound.
We’ll update this page with info and images as we get them, and we’ll be listing them for you to buy in our Brand New Pinballs department.
Numbers will be limited, so you’ll need to Be Quick Or Be Dead.
