no thanks,my opinion below,I state nothing as fact.

personally pinball games are decades & decades outdatted. this might have been cool had it come out in the late 1970's. but in the year 2011 it's just outdatted & obsolete.

I could only imagine the price tags on these per pinball game unit. might as well buy a small used car instead of one of these pinball game things.

Yeah, exactly. Opinion. Obviously there's still enough of a market for pinball machines for them to be created.

So outdated? Obviously not if the market is there.

Frnakly i'd spend a year walking to and from walk for a pinball game. Love a good game of pinball.

Awesome, but it seems a tad cheap in that all the physical TFs (I counted 4) in the game are toys from the last 2 years; that Starscream is still on a peg at my TRU last I checked. Actually quite an ingenious use for toys that weren't selling, and at least they're all Bayniverse toys with little-to-no transformation for the pre-K set. Can you imagine the outrage if we saw chopped up bits of Human Alliance Mudflap, RTS Windcharger or Wreck-Gar, or that cancelled Jetpower Optimus inside this thing? *SMASH*

I think we can all sort of partly agree with Tidalwavex that this SHOULD HAVE been done long ago, like back when they could've drawn from the '86 Movie. I can just hear Springer declaring, "I've got better things to do tonight than die!" when a ball is saved or just before an extra ball is launched, possibly with a skill shot requiring you to peg Devastator in a varying weak spot. And anyone who beat the Death Star twice in a row in that early '90s Star Wars pinball game can imagine how tackling Unicron might have gone:
"Great shot kid, that was one in a million!"/"You've got the touch..."

I don't care if I can own one, I just want to find one and play it. I love pinball. There are two pinball games in the laundry room at my apt, High Rollers and a Jets(NFL) game. The Jets game is fun, but I would love to waste my time playing Transformers pinball while waiting for the clothes to dry.

Pinball is far from outdated. I don't get where that idea comes from. Because there is no TV screen and rocking graphics? Dude, it's an actual tangible game of skill. There is no save point and the ball is gonna roll differently every time. Timing your shot and rolling it off the flippers at just the right spot to shoot the ball where you want it takes patience and skill, not just rote playing to get to the next level.

I used to love playing the Addams Family pinball at this pizza place I used to go to. Far better use of a couple of quarters than playing a short game of Bad Dudes.
Not that I don't enjoy a good game of say Aliens at Chuck E. Cheese, but pinball is just good clean fun.

I am buying one of the Decepticon (Violet) LE Pinball machines. I got in on the pre-order for them a couple months ago. I am both a Pinball and Transformer collector. I have 6 Pinball machines right now & a couple hundred transformers. Pinball is more relevant now than in the last 15 years. A bunch of collectors in my area put on a annual Pinball & Arcade show each year which brings in thousands of people for a weekend of fun. We all bring in our machines to be played by the public. Last summer we packed the house with just about 400 arcade and pinball machines! If you live in the Seattle area, drop me a line and I can tell you all the locations where you can go to play a Transformers pinball machine!
