Rare Prototype Art for a Never Produced Data East Universal Studios Park Pinball Machine
How awesome is this?! Courtesy of Christopher Franchi and the Super Awesome Pinball Show podcast. I have no way of knowing if this is true, but on my Facebook page someone said that the playfield layout that was going to go into the Universal Studios Park pinball machine eventually went into Data East's 1992 game "Hook."
”BONUS! Here's a rare look at the proposed backglass artwork for a Data East pin based on Universal Studios Park. DE got tangled in an impossible web of licensing and in the end Gary Stern was not feeling the strength of the IP, so it was scraped. Thanks to Joe Kaminkow for sharing this image from his personal collection.”
