There have been some nifty LEGO pinball games over the years, but this has got to be one of the best. Vladimir van Hoek has covered just about everything I can think of in both pinball and LotR; all of those bumpers and flipper things, plus the major scenes and characters from the trilogy. And oh yeah, it works!
For the final round of Star Wars Moc Olympics on the German LUG Imperium der Steine builder modestolus decided to take the task "One Movie One MOC" and interpret the film Rogue One as a pinball game. The results are pretty epic, with a fitting homage to an awesome movie in one playable MOC. Check out the video to see it in action. Now it needs lights and sound, just sayin'.
This latest MOC by 6kyubi6 is a total flashback. Being a kid of the 80's I "invested" plenty of quarters in arcades. I especially like the use of the foil handles as air hockey paddles. And those stickers? Totally legit. They're the printing bleed on an official sticker sheet, the overprinting around stickers cut to shape, genius. The only thing that's missing is a classic Star Wars vector game, my all-time favorite.
Growing up in the 70's meant I saw plenty of these at the bowling alley (literally, there was a bowling alley right around the corner from my house). And while I did sink plenty of quarters into the Playboy pinball machine (what can I say, I'm all boy) my favorite machines didn't crop up until the 90's. I shudder to think how much money we dropped into those Star Wars and Addams Family machines. Thanks for the nostalgia Ethan!
I dropped many a quarter into various pinball machines in my past, but the machines that took the most of my hard earned coins were always the Star Wars themed machines. So this MOC by 6kyubi6 makes me very happy. And this doesn't just look awesome, it's totally playable and has lights!. Check out the video after the jump.
