America's Last Pinball Machine Maker Bringing Iron Man Home

Chicago-based Stern—last of the great American pinball makers—is releasing a new "home" edition of its Iron Man cabinet. It leaves out coin slot and some of the fancier geegaws, but it's a lot better than previous home cabinets.

Priced at $3,800, the Stern Iron Man cabinet is designed for hard core pinball fans who want a nice machine at home, but don't need all the additional features of a "Pro" cabinet, like playfield magnets or coin mechanisms.

Since you can buy an arcade "Pro" model of the same machine for $4,217.63 on Amazon—down from an MSRP of $6k—I suspect the "Home" cabinets from Stern will be sold at a more reasonable discount, as well.
