    Will we ever see a Bally "Medusa" pin?

    This would be a table I would love to see them make.
    Looks like a lot of fun and I love the theme.

    Would be a lot of fun to see them make the light up base underneath the flippers on this one too.

    Is this even a remote possibility?

    It's possible but, a while back, I did a poll for early 80's Bally's and Medusa was not one of the front runners when compared to its contemporaries.

    Pair it with Seawitch for a bad girl DLC pack. I would be all over it. But it would be a surprise as these tables just aren't popular enough. Sadly dtown is correct about this. Just too many higher rated tables above a table like Medusa.

    I can't explain that one either. It's must be the exception to the rule.

    Harley was an easy license and they wanted another Stern. That's pretty much all there is to it.

    Yes. 100% Agreed. Been playing the VP version and it was WAY ahead of its time. Love the greek myth theme too!

    Fingers crossed.

    Yeah. A beautiful looking pinball, particularly lit up in a dark room. I sold one on to a friend of mine many years ago. Probably only just makes my Top 5 early-SS Bally games though. Centaur, Fathom and Eight Ball Deluxe all have more to them. Possibly Xenon and Spectrum too.

    Could have been a truly great game if they had used Neptune's Cove as a 2-ball multiball lock though, IMO.

    I have this one on Visual Pinball. It's an overlooked gem for sure!

    Did any other games have illuminated flippers?
    Plays by sense of smell, always has a replay.

    I don't think so.
    That's a nice touch on this pin, that's for sure.
    With all the love that seems to be creeping out for old pins after the success of the EM releases, I'm hoping FS takes a chance and makes this pin for TPA!

    I would love this !

    Medusa is ok, but gets pretty repetitive. Shoot through the orbits to the upper playfield area, get the drops down, rinse and repeat. There's a lot of better early 80s Ballys, in my opinion, that I'd like to see in TPA. Medusa does have a neat art package though.
