RUMOR: Aimtron Corporation is Looking for a Buyer for American Pinball

Earlier today right at the tail end of a great episode of the Pinball Party Podcast, the show's guest host dropped a breaking news bomb. According to Cale Hernandez, he received a text during the recording of the show that Aimtron, the parent company of American Pinball is "looking for a buyer" for the pinball division.


Whoa, if true that's quite a scoop. Cale is well plugged in within the pinball hobby through his position at the Electric Bat Arcade in Tempe, Arizona and the vast number of people that he knows so if he says something, I usually believe him.


Kudos to Jason, the podcast's main host, for the great episode.

Maybe Turner Pinball will buy them or how about Pinball Adventures? It could be American Pinball Adventures!

All kidding aside, I really hope this isn’t the end of American Pinball.

Love me my AP machines, they were all built really well and I only had minimal routine issues that were easy to fix. And I like weird wacky themes just as something different and adventurous. Diversity is good for the pinball ecosystem!


But unfair though it may be, if you don't have the capital to invest and chase down IP licenses its gonna be a marginal existence. AP dipped their toe in IP licensing with Hot Wheels, and it's a great game, but I'm not sure it moved blockbuster numbers.


People also forget about the influence that resale value has on the decision to buy NIB. I'm in a way smaller pinball market in general (Canada) but my experience is…

Haha. I wrote it on my phone. It autocorrected Aimtron to Aunt Ron and I hit public before I noticed.
