The Heavy Metal pinball machine commemorates the 300th issue of Heavy Metal, which has been running since 1977 and inspired the 1981 animated movie of the same name. An exclusive variant cover edition of issue 300 will be included with every machine. Heavy Metal is working with Incendium as a premier licensing partner to align with premium brands and their products.

Llexi Leon, CEO of Incendium, said: “Sci-fi, fantasy, horror, and metal collide in this first-ever pinball machine. This is our most ambitious Heavy Metal product yet. We couldn’t be more proud of the result and we’re hugely grateful for the support from Stern Pinball and Heavy Metal in bringing this amazing machine into existence.

Matthew Medney, CEO of Heavy Metal, said: “Gamifying the Heavy Metal ethos into this timeless machine is a testament to Incendium’s understanding of Heavy Metal’s vision. I couldn’t be more excited about this product, and all of the other speciality items we have on our upcoming slate.”

Gameplay revolves around the warrior heroine, Taarna and the undead tailgunner, Nelson. Both will speak for the first time ever, supporting the in-game narrative.

The pinball machine soundtrack will feature original recordings from Sebastian Bach, and Brendon Small, in addition to iconic tracks from the Heavy Metal movie original soundtrack including Blue Oyster Cult, Cheap Trick and more.

This limited edition pinball machine is built to order and is only available this year, 2020.
