Stern Pinball and Toho International, a subsidiary of Japanese entertainment studio Toho, announced a new line of pinball machines based on the Toho film franchise featuring the King of the Monsters, Godzilla. The “Godzilla” pinball machines are available in Pro, Premium and Limited Edition (LE) models.    

In this pinball adventure, players become Godzilla. Evil aliens, Xiliens, use mind control rays to take control of the monsters King Ghidorah, Gigan, Megalon, Ebirah and Titanosaurus. Godzilla and his allies, Mothra, Rodan and Anguirus, battle the Xilien invasion with the goal of conquering Mechagodzilla to become King of the Monsters. 

“Partnering with Toho, we have brought the “Godzilla” universe to pinball,” says Gary Stern, chairman and chief executive officer, Stern Pinball. “Insider Connected enables players, owners and operators to interact with their machines like never before.” 

The game also includes the title song, “Godzilla” by Blue Oyster Cult, hand-drawn artwork by Zombie Yeti, wireform ramps, three spinning targets (Heat Ray, Mechagodzilla and Monster Rampage), three flippers, three “powerline” themed stand-up targets and a UFO pop pumper. The game highlights video and audio from ten Toho Showa Era Godzilla films to create a one-of-a-kind immersive Godzilla pinball experience. 

Only 1,000 LE machines will be available. The LE version includes an exclusive full-color mirrored back glass inspired by Mechagodzilla, custom cabinet artwork, high-gloss metallic silver powder-coated pinball armor, a designer autographed bottom arch, exclusive inside art blades, upgraded audio system, anti-reflection pinball playfield glass, shaker motor, a sequentially numbered plaque and a Certificate of Authenticity.
