Is Turner Pinball Bringing Out the Pinbar?

This week Turner Pinball has been showing off teaser images of its upcoming debut pinball machine Ninja Eclipse in advance to bringing two pre-production machines and opening up orders at this week's Pinball Expo.

In its most recent teaser photo, Turner censored the front third of the Ninja Eclipse machine with the following message:



The portion of the machine that is covered includes the game's lockbar. This has led to some speculation about what Turner is going to reveal at Expo. Some believe that Turner may show off its version of the defunct Deeproot Pinball's "Pinbar."

For those of you who aren't familiar with the Pinbar, it essentially is a touchscreen embedded into the game's lockbar that both conveys information about the game during play and allows owners to access the service menu.

Turner Pinball's presentation, titled "Turner Pinball - Innovating Outside (& Inside) the Box" is scheduled for Friday, October 20th at 2:00 PM at Expo. I'm very curious to see what they have up their sleeve.

I can't believe they wanna stick with that idea...don't they remember how many design complications it added to the cabinet?

That would be pretty RAD.
