Our production of Avatar pinball will begin in the middle of August,
with export games first and in time to reach our overseas export markets as the
post summer selling season begins. Domestic shipments should start

In Avatar pinball, you as player are the hero Jake Sully. Capture the
pinball in the transporter link, a case that reveals a Jake figurine,
and transform yourself into his Avatar. Then, after a series of
challenges, get past the motorized up/down target bank protecting
Colonel Quaritch and fight the Colonel in his AMP Suit, aiming your
pinball at him. As you overtake the Colonel, his AMP Suit crashes to
the ground and you save the Na'vi people from total destruction. Avatar
pinball also features a twisting ramp, the magnet for random ball play,
and lots of multi-ball action.
Avatar pinball has lots of great sound, including speech and sound
effects from the movie as well as original voice over by actor Stephen
Lang, who plays Colonel Quaritch in the movie.
As we always do, we have been playing Avatar pinball without art, and
tests begin with temporary art, allowing for changes that may still be
necessary for final Licensor approval.
Official pictures will be available early August. Stay tuned for more info.
