Stern announced today that it will be releasing Guardians of the Galaxy pinball machine.  The game is modeled after the movies bearing the same name.  Stern released photos and a short video of its three models LE, Prem, and Pro.  The game seems like it is packed with features such as magnets, spinners, kick backs, and the head of Groot which eats and spits out your balls.  Christopher Franchi who created artwork for Batman 66 designed the artwork on the play field and cabinet.  The game layout was designed by John Borg who also created classics such as Metallica, Iron Man, and Guns N Roses. Nice to see Stern putting some toys and mods back on the play field after Star Wars seemed baron.  Looking forward to playing this game when it is on location.
