If you’re a fan of pinball, John Carpenter’s Halloween, and have some cash to spend, you’re about to drop a lot of quarters. That’s because Spooky Pinball has provided us with all the details on their upcoming limited-edition Halloween pinball machine and it’s a beautiful love letter to John Carpenter’s movie.

The first thing you’ll notice is the amazing custom artwork by Jason Edmiston. As you’ll see on the back glass, cabinet side art, and inside the pin, Edmiston has created such memorable work that the pin is worth owning just to have his artwork on display. It’s almost too good to place other pinballs around this machine to block the side art.

While an amazing looking pinball is cool, it all comes down to the features of the game and, thankfully, Spooky Pinball has you covered as the pinball features:

  • Dual Inlane Lifters
  • Triple interactive Michael Hedge Toy
  • Four Custom Stainless Ramps
  • Judith Meyers Tombstone Drop Target Ball Lock
  • Lighted Jack-O-Lantern Drop bank
  • Three upper Playfields (One Playable Smith’s Grove Sanitarium Playfield, One Playable House Playfield, One Passive Playfield.)
  • 360 Degree LED Flashers
  • Sculpted Pumpkin with 360 LED Flasher inside
  • Custom Metal Ball Drop Down Mech
  • Dual Spinner Loop
  • 150 Interactive RGB Lighting.
  • Upper Playfield RGB Strip Lighting

At this point some of you are already thinking how do I buy this machine? The main thing to know is they’re only making 1250 units of the Halloween pinball machine and three versions (Standard, Blood Sucker, and Collector’s Edition) each of which come with certain add ones. Obviously the more you spend the more you get. Also keep in mind it’s not 1250 units of each edition. It is 1250 machines total. So, if they sell all of them as collectors editions, they won’t make any of the other releases. In addition, Spooky Fang Club members get early access to game sales (sign up here). Right now the plan is for the games to go on sale at 9 a.m. central time on Wednesday July 7th.

  • Shoot the right ramp to get to the Smith Grove Sanitarium Playfield. Then shoot the scoop to start Sanitarium Mode. Complete all red lit shots for Michael to escape! Then gather patients for super Jackpot.
  • When Hedge Multiball and Smith Grove Sanitarium have been visited, you can qualify House mode by shooting the center ramp twice. Now get to that uppermost playfield!
