    Somehow I doubt it’ll come to fruition. First of all, as a regular reader of and VPforums, I’ve not seen any comment on this item. Second, the amount of labor & parts required to produce a modern pin is staggering; not likely to be produced by a ‘hobbyist,’ at least not in quantities of more than one.

    I’m with Cellocgw – as a one-off, or mod of an existing one, sure. As a new pinball machine you can go buy? No. Wish it were otherwise, to be honest – then I could go buy me a ”

    That being said – take that backglass, make a virtual pinball table for it, and put them together with a monster LCD panel, and voila. But even that’s a heck of a lot of work.

    Frank by Jim Woodring is just about one of my favorite comics series of all time. So strange and truly gnarly.

    If there was a pinball game I bet it would have some pretty convoluted detours for that steel ball.

    Long live Frank by Jim Woodring!
