Metallica and Stern Pinball have announced a trio of real pinball machines inspired by the metal band will be out in May.
The tables feature numerous elements from Metallica’s album covers, such as the snake from The Black Album and the tombstones from Master Of Puppets, as well as such songs as “One,” “Creeping Death,” “Seek & Destroy,” “Enter Sandman,” and “Fade To Black.”
Each version of the table will feature different imagery on the cabinet but similar layouts for the playing field. They’ll also have unique mechanics. The Pro model,for instance, will have illuminated grave markers, while the Premium and Master Of Puppets Limited Edition version will have motorized and illuminated grave markers (a complete chart of the differences is on Metallica’s website here).
The pro version of the table will retail for $4995.00, the Premium version will be $6995.00, while the limited edition will be $7595.00.
All three tables can be preordered—for a 50% deposit—through Metallica’s website.
