Holy shit, 8G for an LE, Stern has lost his friggen mind Shocked

Pricing and Availability:
Avengers Pro: $5699 MSRP
Avengers LE: $8099 MSRP
HULK LE: $8099 MSRP
Avengers Premium: Pricing available in 2013

MELROSE PARK, IL – November 29, 2012 – Stern Pinball Inc., the world’s leading maker of real pinball games, announced today the release of The Avengers pinball machine. The newest member of the Stern collection memorializes The Avengers, a franchise that has remained a staple in pop culture since it first appeared as a comic book series in 1963. The Avengers will join Stern’s revolutionary line-up of comic inspired machines including X-Men, spiderman, Iron Man and Batman.

For almost 50 years The Avengers have delighted fans through comic books, television series and movies. Stern is thrilled to bring the franchise to pinball and provide fans with a new medium through which to enjoy The Avengers. The machine features a dynamic setting that incorporates six iconic Avenger heroes: Iron Man, Thor, Hulk, Captain America, Black Widow and Hawkeye. Players help The Avengers assemble to defeat the notorious villain Loki. The Avengers pinball features an animated twisting and pounding custom molded HULK, drop targets and a spinning cube bonus, in addition to plenty of multiball action.

“Throughout the years The Avengers have cultivated a loyal and energetic fan base,” said Gary Stern, founder, CEO and Chairman of Stern Pinball. “Stern is pleased to have the opportunity to give these fans an Avengers pinball game to enjoy for years to come.”

The Avengers game continues both the Stern Pinball and the Stern family tradition of producing quality pinball machines for young and old. The company traces its lineage to Philadelphia in the 1930s when Sam Stern entered the business of operating pinball games. Stern passed his lifelong enthusiasm for the game and the business of pinball to his son Gary Stern who founded Stern Pinball. Today pinball remains one of America’s favorite pastimes.

Yeah that is insane. I'd personally sign up for JJP and The Hobbit if I had $8k burning a hole in my pocket (HD Screen + RGB LEDs... oh and headphone jack!... no brainer!!!). Stern will need to look at the price point once JJP starts turning out pins. The foundation has been laid... first game is about to be shipped... finally some competition!

JJP needs to get their shit together before they can claim to be a real contender. First of all, that dipshit they have writing code is not friggin done yet??? Are you kidding me, sub contract that shit to a 24/7 India team, give them the routine flows and let them code it. Having to rely on one guy to complete the code is a big mistake IMO and shows the lack of vision this company has at the moment. I agree competition is needed, and JJP has shown some innovation, but they need to tighten things up and let some people go that are dragging them down. Hey Now, Rant mode off Smile

I think Stern saw that people were willing to drop $8000.00 on JJ and they still do not even have a game done yet.
So if people are willing to shell out $8000.00 and wait.........or shell out $8000.00 and get a game right away.
If it wasnt for JJ and his extreme price,.....maybe Stern would not be so high

In any case it sucks prices have to be so ridiculous... in the end competition is a good thing which hopefully will drive down prices (if JJP delivers of course). Unfortunately people are willing to pay the huge price tag so maybe what will actually happen is prices wont go up.

The Avengers looks pretty cool. Playfield doesn't look like a typical Gomez design. The spinning cube will add an interesting element to gameplay. Let's hope STERN has a good one here!

Looks like the Avenger Pro may be the one to get. I read on Pinside that they may be shipping Avengers before Christmas with completed code? Is this even possible? If Stern pulls this off, 1000+ WOZ LE early adopters will be crying the blues Sad

Looks pretty badass. Too bad there is no more arcades in town. But I wish stern would buy the rights and reproduce some of the classic machines or make a twlight zone 2 or something.

I like the new ones but I have ahard time playing them because the playfield graphics are too busy. If the games tell me to try to shoot for something special, I find I have to stop and look around and read what all the targets say...just be nice if there was only a blinking light to tell me what to aim at. But my reasons are selfish. If they started making the old machines, hopefully it would bring the prices down to non-doctor/ lawyer affordable prices.
