It’s the first episode of 2014 & it’s the first time in a long time that two new pinball titles have been announced in the one month! But will STERN’s 50th Anniversary Ford Mustang appeal to pinball fans or will STERN have to rely upon Mustang fans? In this instalment of The Pinheadz PODcast we track down a Mustang collecting pinball enthusiast for the answer.

The other big news in Pinball comes from the Netherlands with the announcement that 16 years after the release of The Big Lebowski film, the pinball machine is about to be built.

As well as visiting ‘Australian Pinball Restorations’ in Melbourne where the son of Australia’s first pinball operator, is resurrecting the very games he thought he may never see again.

And we’ll also cross to Geoff Fraser in the Victorian seaside town of Inverloch for a genuine rarity on this side of the world…a home use only pin from 1989. LINK: frastrac.com.au

PPP001: Welcome to the first episode of the Pinheadz Pinball PODcast!

Rod, Gaz & Pinball Stevie reflect on where their love of pinball started in Australia, before declaring 2013 – YEAR OF THE PINBALL PODCAST! The team then look at the impact social media has on marketing pinball in 2013/14, before debating “WHAT WAS THE BIGGEST THING IN PINBALL FOR 2013″. And the nominees are…

  • METALLICA LE selling out in hours
  • WIZARD OF OZ begins shipping
  • The emergence of an Australian pinball manufacturer with the THUNDERBIRDS LICENCE
  • Planetary Pinball putting MEDIEVIL MADNESS back into production

Finally a look forward to next year & next episode leaves us wondering could 2014 be bigger than 2013…NO WAY! Or could it?
