MELROSE PARK, IL – Stern Pinball, Inc., the world’s only maker of real pinball games, announced upcoming plans for a pinball machine based on the iconic Transformers brand from Hasbro, Inc that will be available later this fall. Collectors, casual players and avid fans can all expect nothing less than an epic Transformers adventure.
Since the birth of the franchise in 1984, the Transformers brand has been celebrated with toys, comic books, animation, summer blockbuster movies and more. Under license from Hasbro, Stern is now proud to be adding pinball machines to the lineup. Players can expect the classic battle between the heroic Optimus Prime and the villainous Megatron as well as other beloved Autobot and Decepticon characters.
“The story behind the Transformers brand makes for a perfect translation into pinball,” said Gary Stern, founder, Chief Executive Officer and chairman of Stern Pinball. “We’re confident that the long anticipated machine will please the eyes, ears and the hands of even the most diehard Transformers fans.”
The Transformers game continues both the Stern Pinball and the Stern family tradition of producing quality pinball machines for young and old. The company traces its lineage to Philadelphia in the 1930s when Sam Stern entered the business of operating pinball games. Stern passed his lifelong enthusiasm for the game and the business of pinball to his son Gary Stern who founded Stern Pinball. Today pinball remains one of America’s favorite pastimes.
