Rumors About the Upcoming Stern Pinball James Bond Machine

In a recent post on Pinside, an individual stated that a distributor told them that the new Stern Pinball James Bond game will be based upon the Sean Connery era of the movies.

Sean Connery played 007 in the following movies:

Dr. No (1962)

From Russia With Love (1963)

Goldfinger (1964)

Thunderball {1965)

You Only Live Twice (1967)

Diamonds are Forever (1971)

Never Say Never Again (1983)

It is not currently known which of these movies will be featured in the game, has been brought to my attention that an artist submitted an art package to Stern for a pinball machine based solely on the Bond movie Goldfinger back in 2019. Ultimately that package was rejected by either Stern or the licensor, but it lends some credence to the rumor that the game is only based upon one Sean Connery Bond film, Goldfinger. Of course, even if this was the case at one time, that was several years ago and things may have changed.

The post went on to say that Stern is going to raise prices on all three trim levels of the game, Pro, Premium and LE.

Lastly, Stern is supposedly going to officially reveal the game to dealers at 8:00 AM Central next Tuesday, two hours before it is scheduled to list some of the Limited Edition machines for sale to All-Access members on its website.

NIB GnR LEs list at $11,000.

NIB Wonka LEs list at $11,000.

These are published prices by licensed distributors.

Dialed In is a narrow body that was released at a lower price point.

JJP has never been a low cost option.

I'm sorry to say but you're wrong. Those games might be that much now maybe, but when they came out they were much cheaper MSRP. I'm not going to argue with you anymore because you don't seem to understand or accept facts. We live in 2 different realities.


This is why I hate Jersey Jack. They started off as a company to combat these high prices and put more in their machines for lower prices and creating competition to lower prices. Now they are the company to put less in their machines and drive up the prices paving the way for other companies like Stern to also raise their prices freely. People need to smarten up and say stop and stop buying these machines when they raise prices. Raising prices every release is unacceptable. Show your intelligence people and resist.

Yah I don't think so. I'm am going by memory here so I may be incorrect, but I remember Oz going for around 6,500-7000. Considering more recent games like Wonka were going for $7500 new and GnR was going for $6750 new for the standard edition, I can safely assume your $9000 figure is incorrect for a 9 year old game. I also believe Dialed In was sub 9k as well.
