    I'd give anything to see some John Carpenter themed tables centered on some of his older films. My personal favorites would be:

    - The Thing
    - The Fog
    - Escape From New York
    - Big Trouble in Little China

    All have excellent soundtracks/dialogue that would lend themselves well - especially Big Trouble in Little China. Jack Burton's one-liners are just too good!

    Would also love a few Mad Max tables.

    - Mad Max 2 The Road Warrior
    - Mad Max 4 Fury Road

    *edit* can't believe I forgot to include a table based on my all time favorite film - Blade Runner!
    The Thing would be amazing! That music!!

    On the Amiga (And later also on other platforms) you had the Pinball Dreams/Fantasies/Illusions by Digital Illusions. This was a classic series. It would be very cool to have "remakes" of these tables in ZP2:

    For example:

    * Pinball Dreams: Nightmare: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NZKWHNHBgMQ
    * Pinball Fantasies: Stones & Bones: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=FOnEf6UsF_4
    * Pinball Fantasies: Party Land: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=QJLp_Q9-nno
    * Pinball Illusions: Law 'n Justice: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=RcAiigYLisM

    Another Suggestion

    A remake of Devils Crush that I had on Turbo Graphix 16. That was a fun pinball game in the day.

    theme suggestions

    With all the Fox tables recently added, I was wondering if anyone thought of coming up with a Simpsons or Futurama table.

    Likewise, the latest Bethesda tables make me fancy a Dragon Age and Mass Effect table.

    What do you think about it?

    1) Vampire Jury. You're a juror for some trial or other, and you're trying to convince the other jurors (like Twelve Angry Men), but one of them is a vampire, and you don't know who it is. (I like the idea of the allegiances from the Civil War table, but in another setting.)

    2) Time travel, but local. There've been a couple of physical pinball tables involving time travel to different eras, but I'm picturing something more like the movie Primer, in which you're traveling to multiple points within the same week. Maybe each day of the week is a different mode, and you can go back and rerun days that didn't work out for you. Maybe have a multiball mode where each ball is a copy of yourself, and if two balls collide they cancel out?

    3) A make-a-table table. You start with a mostly empty white field, and modes add new features to the playfield. Maybe with some element of player choice - do I want a ramp or a bank of targets there?

    4) I'd like a bank of targets that aren't all reachable at once, and there's something you can do to rotate the lit targets. Maybe a dry-cleaning rack, or a merry-go-round, or something like that.

    5) I'd like a mode that freezes one of the flippers, but raises a center post so that it won't make it more likely for you to drain. (You may have already done this in a table I haven't played?)

    6) A pirate-themed table with a center ship running up the middle of the table, with planks and yardarms and what have you, that rocks back and forth when there's a storm. There are ramps that run across the middle of the table, and when the ship tilts they point at new targets.

    Thanks for reading these! I hope they're at least fun or useful to contemplate.
    Thanks and welcome to the forums! Primer was soooo good - I think I need to watch it again

    Yes, and maybe add a Bistan Table.

    Speaking of comic book universes--The Valiant Universe might be a good pick up (awesome plots in these comics) and since they are still in their infancy as a company, licensing their stuff could be economic. X-O Manowar, Bloodshot, Rai, Archer & Armstrong, Harbinger, Shadowman, Quantum & Woody, Eternal Warrior, Timewalker, Ninjak, and Dr. Mirage--all these titles make great fodder for pinball tables. The Valiant Universe is rich in lore.

    Pulp Fiction.

    So iconic in many ways. That would be an awesome theme for a pinball table.

    Mentioned twice in this thread and elsewhere too, but I think Jurassic Park would fit well in a pinball universe. Could be a Jurassic Park Trilogy/Jurassic World 2-pack.

    Thank you for the Aliens tables!

    When can we expect new tables?

    ON TOPIC: How about a Lovecraft table or pack, with Cthulhu, the old ones, Dagon, Shoggoths (you name it)!?
    New tables are being worked on - we teased this a couple weeks ago and we should have a release date for you all soon
