1. More Details on The Beatles

Last week we got some more information and some pictures of the upcoming Beatles pinball machine from Stern/Kapow.
We’ll start with some additional information from Joe Kaminkow regarding the following questions that have been discussed in the community:
Song Length
One question that pinball enthusiasts have asked is – will the machines contain the full songs or portions of the songs?  If portions, how long will the clips be?  TWIP spoke to Joe Kaminkow, who shared that the song length is tailored to mode length so the song lengths will vary depending on what is going on in the game.
Will it have a Coin Door?
Another question people have been asking is: Will it have a working coin door?  Joe Kaminkow told TWIP the following:  Depending on customers requirement some will have coin doors some won’t.  An example, a family entertainment may want a coin door, or a blank for home collectors.  The coin door has a beautiful decal.

Next, Stern issued the following press release:
