Stern Pinball is ready to reveal the new line of pinball machines celebrating the Sean Connery era of the James Bond films. The collection features the original 007 actor, Sean Connery, in four different versions of the game, each with its own bells, whistles, and surprises. Stern’s James Bond 007 Pinball includes music and recreations of iconic moments from the films that helped make Bond a household name: Dr. No, From Russia With Love (1963), Goldfinger (1964), Thunderball (1965), You Only Live Twice (1967), and Diamonds Are Forever (1971). Stern Pinball will also release a remarkable James Bond 007 60th Anniversary Limited Edition pinball machine featuring all six James Bond actors.

In Stern’s James Bond 007 Pinball, players are immersed in the espionage world in this action-packed pinball experience, tackling assignments, teaming up with key allies, and stopping SPECTRE’s criminal schemes.

Stern’s official description states, “players will gather gadgets from Q Branch as pinballs get ejected through the roof of a custom sculpted Aston Martin DB5. Break through the Osato Chemicals drop targets to battle SPECTRE at the Bird One rocket base. And hold your breath on the gravity-defying, magnetic jetpack as it transports pinballs across the playfield.”
