Highway to Tilt

Thursday April 26, 2012 Written by wilfred

Every legend gets their own pinball machine: The Creature From the Black Lagoon, Rocky, KISS and now... AC/DC.

The injustice of not giving Acka Dacka their own game sooner is being undone by the recent release of three pins in tribute to the band. To mark the milestone, a party will be held in Sydney this Sunday April 29, and an AC/DC pinball championship will travel the country from August through October.

Steve Richie designed the games, which won't mean much to pinball novices, but wizards will know "The Master of Flow" and his killer creations, including Superman, Firepower, Flash, Star Trek: The Next Generation, Spider-Man, and Terminator 2: Judgement Day. From Stern Pinball, the AC/DC pin features 12 classic songs so it will even save you money at the jukebox. Win-win.

There was a feature on classic pins in Smith volume two. It's sold out, but you can pick up a digi copy here.
