Just in time for the 2018 holiday season… Stern Pinball has announced what it describes as a “one-of-a-kind,” limited edition Beatles pinball machine. Only 1964 units will be produced in recognition of the year in which Beatlemania began “when Ed Sullivan introduced America to four young mop-topped musicians from Liverpool, England.”
The game will be available in three models named for the recording industry’s sales award levels. The Diamond Edition, the highest level and most difficult to attain, is limited to a run of just 100. The Platinum Edition is limited to only 250 units. The Gold Edition will have 1614 units. And that, says Stern, will be it.
The machine will feature eight favorite Beatles songs: “A Hard Day’s Night,” “Can’t Buy Me Love,” “Ticket to Ride,” “All My Loving,” “Help,” “Drive My Car,” “It Won’t Be Long” and “I Should Have Known Better.”
From the announcement: The retro-themed playfield features four flippers, eleven drop targets, eight stand-up targets, multiple skill shots, two opto-spinners, a ball-catching magnet and a magnetic spinning record disc in the center of the playfield. Players will enjoy full screen animations as well as simulated reel scoring on the game’s high definition video screen. All models feature unique art packages and custom powder-coated armor. The 100 Diamond Editions are numbered, certified collectible and include a mirrored backglass. The 250 Platinum Editions are numbered and certified collectible.
