Now This is What Real The Walking Dead Pinball Looks Like


Zen Studios did a phenomenal job adapting Telltale’s The Walking Dead adventure series into a virtual pinball table, but nothing beats the real thing. And by real thing I mean this bad boy: A real-life The Walking Dead arcade pinball machine!

Made by Stern Pinball, The Walking Dead pinball machine pulls its design inspiration from AMC’s hit TV series. From the press release:

The drama tells the story of the months and years after a zombie apocalypse. Stern’s The Walking Dead pinball features everything fans would want in a flesh-eating pinball world. Players fight to survive the zombie apocalypse alongside series icon, Sheriff Rick Grimes, by battling zombies and completing various game missions. The game includes multiple zombie toys for adrenalin-filled zombie battles at familiar locations from the show such as the Prison and Cell Block C. A brilliant high-definition zombie-filled art package heightens the player’s excitement.

Stern’s take on The Walking Dead pinball is available in two models: A Pro Model starting at $5,995, and a Limited Edition for $8,595. For the increased price, the Limited Edition features mirrored back glass with alternate artwork as well as “unique special effects such as a fish tank with illuminated sculpted zombie heads and a motorized crossbow assembly that allows players to launch the ball anywhere in the game.”
