Deadpool Topper?

Last week Pinball Paparazzi shared this image on Facebook with the caption “Deadpool proto topper spotted.”  Check out the image here:

That image was pulled from the image below, which was shared by George Gomez on Facebook:

We don’t know yet if that is the actual topper – we will find out soon(ish)!


Jack Danger Talks about Being Stern’s Global Ambassador

Jack Danger interviewed with The Nerd Element about how he became a Pinball Global Ambassador – check out the interview here!


Homepin Drama Continues

Homepin shipped out their first batch of Thunderbirds last week…to Canada.  This made many of the early Australian backers and pre-orderers of Thunderbirds upset, as they have been paid in full for nearly five years in some cases and still do not have a machine.  Mike spoke out on Pinside about these complaints in his own “Mike way”, pouring gasoline on the fire.  We hope these first supporters of Homepin will soon get their machines.


UK Pinfest

A dedicated pinball event will be held the UK for the first time in three years!  It will be held in Daventry, a central location for the whole of the UK, on August 25th and 26th.

Looking forward to a great event!
