What's this?! A press release from STERN pinball?! [Iron Man]

It seems that STERN Pinball is finally getting into the good habit of promoting their products. Their newest offering, Iron Man, is due out shortly. It' will be released in conjunction with the Iron Man 2 movie. As Bugs Bunny might say, "that's good stragety." From what I've seen so far, it has some flavor from the Spider-Man pinball game, and that's a good thing.

Quick look video:

As you have seen (If you've watched the video), it has a hidden "bash target," the Iron Monger, directly in the middle of the playfield. Toys like this will bring in the novice players, who might choose to hit the Iron Monger repeatedly while they are learning the deeper rules of the game. Hey, it worked with Spider-Man's Sandman targets.

"Open me up... I've got obvious points behind me!"

"Hit me! I dare you!"

From the press release:

Created by the game design team at Stern Pinball, Iron Man™ Pinball is based on the Marvel Studios’ blockbuster film, Iron Man, and the highly anticipated Iron Man 2 movie, opening May 7, 2010. Iron Man™ Pinball is sure to be an especially big hit with fans of the world-renowned Marvel comic book series, animated TV series, and films.

Iron Man™ Pinball features speech, art, and dot matrix display images of all of your favorite characters, including Tony Stark, Iron Man, Whiplash, War Machine, Rhodey, Iron Monger, Pepper Potts, Black Widow, and many more. The pinball machine also contains songs from the Iron Man movie score.

Pinball players will fight against Whiplash and his ball-catching mechanism, which whips the ball around the playfield. Adding to the challenge is the mechanical War Machine, firing the pinball back to the flippers, and Iron Monger, rising from underneath the playfield to do battle. Iron Man™ Pinball also features two elevated ramps and lots of multi-ball action!

Gary Stern says, “We’ve had tremendous success with all of our comic book Super Hero movie themed games, and I expect Iron Man™ to be our best.”

Players are currently working through some of the rule set for the game. Also, The International Flipper Pinball Association (IFPA) has announced that the game will be available for play at the IFPA 7 World Pinball Championships in Cokato, Minnesota (May 21-23, 2010), although it will not be part of tournament play. I can't wait to get my hands on it. I hope STERN Pinball can back up their release of Big Buck Hunter Pro with another high quality pinball game.
