Now this is an ideal gift for the Led Zeppelin fan who already has everything. Stern Pinball and Led Zeppelin have revealed a run of three beautiful new machines, all emblazoned with imagery and music from Jimmy Page and company.
The Pro, Premium, and Limited Edition models all feature a custom-molded Hindenburg Zeppelin toy, based on the iconic imagery from the Led Zeppelin I album. When lit, the Zeppelin toy scores speed locks on the player's musical journey to Zeppelin multiball. A custom Swan Song Records trademark Icarus sculpted leaper toy takes flight when smashed by the chaotic pinball. A 3-bank of drop targets, 3 custom steel ramps, and 3 flippers keep the pinball action rolling.
The Premium and Limited Edition models feature an innovative interactive Electric Magic™ toy. This device is a unique motorized toy which rises from below the playfield to create different magical pinball experiences. An optical spinner charges the Electric Magic magnet, capturing and making balls disappear. The Electric Magic device also converts into a physical pinball bash toy capable of locking a ball or launching a ball around the playfield. Trippy, right?
Only 500 Limited Edition games will be made for sale throughout the world, so true collectors take note. This limited version includes an exclusive Icarus themed full color mirrored backglass, exclusive custom themed cabinet artwork, custom high gloss Paradise Shimmer Blue powder-coated armor, a custom autographed bottom arch, exclusive custom art blades, upgraded audio system, anti-reflection pinball glass, a shaker motor, and a sequentially numbered plaque. Whew. Sounds serious.
"There is nothing more energizing and fun than bringing pinball and music together," said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc, in a press statement. "Partnering with Led Zeppelin, we created a one-of-a-kind pinball experience. It's our dream goal to create a pinball machine with this iconic rock band."
