Pinball for Home Rec Room

Tuesday, February 5th, 2013

Stern logoYou’d think that a professional pinball machine would be out of the budget for home entertainment. The founder of Stern Pinball, who claims sixty five years of experience in the industry, says that is no longer true – their new unit is within reach of many consumer’s budgets. Plus there are themes such as AC/DC, X-Men, Avengers, and Avatar that have approached instant classic status.The same actuators, flippers and electronics used in their commercial business- but the coin collection system has been left out. The machine disassembles easily so it can be carried into a home basement rec room and set up.

Stern is the only manufacturer of arcade quality pinball machines in the world, located near Chicago.

This is Stern’s first venture into consumer pinball machines. They are the only company in the world currently manufacturing pinball machines and now they’re bringing them into people’s homes. Stern wants to begin training a new generation of pinball enthusiasts by making the games more available to them.

These products are half the price of the least expensive commercial version but with commercial grade bumpers and flippers so that it doesn’t feel like a toy or cheap pinball machine. There are two consumer versions available now, Transformers and Avengers branded machines. They include multiball and many other “pro” features for half the price.
