    Not good from a Sales point of view for Zen.
    Depends really, going with artists with global fanbases I think mitigates some of the risk, even more so if Sony is willing to help out with licsencing. Obviously there will always be personal preference with invidual groups, but they could do a couple of tables featuring different genres if this sort of thing would even Be possible. Daft Punk has been around along time now, lots of people love them around the world, so I dont think it would be that big of a risk.

    Maybe Ms.Bomb can comment on how difficult it would be. In terms of stating personal preference it would not be any different then putting stuff like Marvel, or Star Wars up there. They do it because the properties have enough appeal overall.

    1. I see allot of people requesting Tron, but personally I would actually rather see a Daft Punk themed music table. There are already tables out there(like the ACDC table) that allow you to choose a song at the beginning, and that Song changes the rules of the table. I say Daft Punk because im a huge fan, and Sony is feeling pretty generous in the indie direction as of late so Im sure they could help you guys out with licensing issues. Could be awesome playing a table featuring Robot Rock, Around the world, or maybe a few tracks from Random Access Memories.

    As always though I also look forward to seeing your original tables, and you guys have put out some awesome work.

    Hello all,

    Im new to the forums from a posting standpoint, but been lurking around for a long while. There is already a pretty large number of great suggestions so I can only really inject a couple that I would like to see.

    You could also look into doing something like this for a Heavy Metal themed table.

    2. Im a pretty big fan of Sword, and sorcery stuff, and would love to see a Barbarian themed table. I would be even more thrilled if yiu could snag Conan the Barbarian and do some awesome stuff for a table with that theme. Lots of great stuff out there for inspiration in a table of this type but that Zen flair would really make it pop imo.

    3. My last suggestion would DC Universe tables, we have a ton of Marvel stuff so it may be awhile if ever I understand, but there are so many cool tables you could do for DC. You could do stuff like Kingdom Come, The Dark Knight Returns, Blackest Night, Crisis on Infinite earths etc. Obviously you could do single characters like Superman, Batman, Wonder Woman, Flash, or you could do Vertigo stuff like V for Vendetta, Watchmen, or Sandman.


    As always though I also look forward to seeing your original tables, and you guys have put out some awesome work.

    School House Rock for the win! I'm 31 and still watches it with my children.

    I would looove to see a Game of Thrones table, the amount of cool stuff that could be implemented on that table would be sick.

    Another idea would be tables themed after each console's exclusive games such as a fable or gears of war table for xbox, an uncharted or god of war or littlebig planet table for ps3, a donkeykong/mario table for wii and so on.

    Your own mix of previous tables such as a marvel super table with Zen's own ideas etc

    About time someone mentioned the Muppets. That would be a table with a lot of possibilities, nearly endless material there really.

    Disney Pack:
    Mickey Mouse
    Scrooge Mcduck
    Hercules
    Muppets

    Game Pack:
    Mass Effect
    Assassin's Creed
    Resident Evil
    Duke Nukem

    Other Pack:
    South Park
    Muppets
    TMNT
    Matrix

    And out of those Star Wars tables I really wish one uses a common cantina theme. None of the "EPIC WAR DUM DUM DU DU DU DUU..." but something a random smuggler or bounty hunter would play in some Jabba-ridden galactic club.

    Oh, and Muppets.

    I would pay 20 or more for a Family Guy table.

    My personal suggestions

    I wouldn't mind seeing a simpsons table, family guy or even duck dynasty. I'm sure at least 2 of those wouldn't mind having those tables made.

    Scott Pilgrim Pinball Table would be awesome!

    But I have some own ideas as favorites nonetheless

    Split Personality
    "what? where am I? how did i get here?"
    Investigate and fathom your other personalities. The lanes are your friend, though they interconnect here and there anew. Become friend with them and get them to rest in peace for fully enjoying your life!

    Medical Assist
    "the blue pill or the red pill?"
    get your proper medicine in your hospital and try to stay alive! avoid nurses and get to the doctor for multiball!

    Twitter
    "That's not funny!"
    try to build up your social status by combining the lanes to get combo points! And watch your battery! Keep it alive with multiball points!

    and finally

    INTERNET
    "hey that's a funny meme!"
    browse through the internet to discover awesome meme's. Explore websites and avoid tracking cookies. Get a browser scanner for invoking multiball for much deeper experience of the world wide web! And at the end.... discover the conspiracy and spread the news!

    That would be awesome! However, what Power Ranger franchise would we go with? Would it be the original Mighty Morphin, or Ninjas, Samurai, Mega Force, etc? Zord transformations would be sick!
