Secret Agent-Themed Pinball Machines

Stern Pinball Launches Its 'James Bond 007' Pinball Line

— September 23, 2022 — Tech
Stern Pinball has announced the launch of its newest collaborative pinball machine line, which aims to celebrate the iconic 'James Bond film series. The new 'James Bond 007' line will include four machines: a 'Pro Edition,' a 'Premium Edition,' 'Limited Edition (LE),' and a special 'James Bond 007 60th Anniversary Limited Edition.'

The cornerstone machine will feature imagery and visual motifs lifted directly from class James Bond films, including 'Dr. No, From Russia With Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), and Diamonds Are Forever (1971).'

“James Bond is as timeless as pinball. Partnering with EON Productions/Danjaq, MGM Studios and Aston Martin, we created a pinball adventure capturing the suspense, action, and humor from this beloved film series,” said Gary Stern, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball.
