I have been waiting for Arcade1Up to finally release the Marvel Pinball machine, and today, the word dropped – December 15th is the day.

If you are not familiar with Arcade1Up machines, they are arcade and pinball machines that are 3/4th the size of the real deal. For arcade enthusiast, the Arcade1Up machines have been a great way to get into the hobby (and fill the Nerd Room of Doom), at a relatively low price. Many, including your humble writer, have modified their machines to play even more games than ship on the systems.

Now, Arcade1Up is chasing after the pinball market with a series of machines featuring the Zen Pinball game tables.

If you’ve watched me play Zen Pinball on the Major Spoilers Twitch stream, you know two things; 1) I really want to get one of these machines (and then build a full-sized system), and 2) I really need one of these machines to practice on, because I’m not really that good.
