Greetings Pinball Fans!
Jersey Jack Pinball, Inc. is proud to release the black and white drawing for the left cabinet design artwork. While you are only seeing a black and white image on the cabinet, the final artwork will be shown in full, bright colors. Famed Artist Jerry VanderStelt who has been commissioned to create the seven unique works of art for the cabinet will begin to draw each by hand on canvas. It is expected that it will take several weeks for him to complete each canvas.
Jerry wanted to tell the story beginning with the left side of the cabinet at the flipper button, in bright and cheery, Munchkin land. As your eye moves along the image from the front of the cabinet to the back, you are further into the story and on the Yellow Brick Road moving up the back box, a much darker aspect of the story emerges. The story continued onto the other side of the cabinet backbox and right cabinet side. Next week JJP will be revealing the right side of the cabinet where this story of The Wizard of Oz will come full circle.
JJP has also released a small portion of the lower left playfield. In this we see a bumper that is positioned after the player's ball would drain. The player gets a chance to hit targets, complete modes and work to even get their ball to pop back up onto the main playfield. This is just a small taste of what the Design Team has done in creating this game. The thought of doing things that have never been done as well as some features and aspects of pinball that have not been done in a very long time is what motivated the Design Team to create the Wizard of Oz Pinball Machine.
Next week more playfield detail will be revealed and as we go along you will truly understand how unique and different this game will be as well as staying true to the spirit of Pinball which is a full featured mechanical action fun game experience.
