A new pinball machine inspired by both the 300th issue of Heavy Metal and the 1981 animated movie of the same name is coming. The machine features music from Sebastian Bach (Skid Row), Brendon Small (Galaktikon, Dethklok), Blue Öyster Cult, Cheap Trick, and more.
The Heavy Metal pinball machine commemorates the 300th issue of Heavy Metal, which has been running since 1977 and inspired the 1981 animated movie of the same name. An exclusive variant cover edition of issue 300 will be included with every machine.
The original art created for the Heavy Metal pinball machine art pays tribute to characters and worlds from the magazine's storied history. New additions from its upcoming publications join this shared universe for the first time. Gameplay revolves around the warrior heroine, Taarna and the undead tailgunner, Nelson. Both, will speak for the first time ever, supporting the in-game narrative.
The machine will ship around the holiday season this year, and will run you $8,000. Pre-order one here.
