Chicago Gaming Company announces new Pulp Fiction pinball machine developed with the involvement of Quentin Tarantino.
Of all the movie-inspired pinball machines out there, Pulp Fiction is perhaps one of the best-suited. Chicago Gaming Company has announced a new Pulp Fiction pinball machine that looks as though it would be perfectly at home at Jack Rabbit Slims.
The new Pulp Fiction pinball machine was developed at the request of Quentin Tarantino, who wanted a retro-style pinball machine for his home. The director was involved throughout the development of the machine, so you can be sure it’s full of all the easter eggs and tidbits one would expect. Check out a few pictures below of the Pulp Fiction pinball machine below, including a surprisingly delicious-looking Big Kahuna burger.
“Legendary pinball designer Mark Ritchie masterfully crafted a playfield which on its surface appears comparable to games from this era but outside of initial perception features more mechanisms and greater depth than most games produced today,” reads the official description of the machine. “David Thiel forcefully pulls the player into this world utilizing over 250 iconic lines from Pulp Fiction’s legendary cast, five licensed songs from the original movie soundtrack, and a number of original compositions. Josh Sharpe developed an approachable rule set that is both intuitive and deep enough to engage even the most skilled player. Scott Pikulski’s vintage inspired art package is both stunning and perfectly cohesive.“
There are several editions of the Pulp Fiction pinball machine to choose from, including the Bad Mother Flipper Limited Edition, which is limited to just 1000 machines. It includes a Jack Rabbit Slim’s topper, vintage speaker grill, interior mirror blades, shaker motor assembly, cast metal serialized medallion, Pulp Fiction promotional banner, and a certificate of authenticity signed by Mark Ritchie. It also offers an extended warranty, covering 12 months for mechanicals and 24 months for electronics.
The regular edition of the Pulp Fiction pinball machine will run you $7,999, with the limited edition going for $9,499. No word on when the machine will be released, as the trailer only mentions that it will be coming soon.
