This $13,000 John Wick Pinball Table Comes With A Piece Of His Suit


Just when you’d thought you’d seen the last of John Wick, the world’s deadliest assassin is preparing to return in a brand-new pinball game. Yeah, we’re thinking he’s back. Developed and produced by Stern Pinball, this new table will include film-inspired mechanical features and artwork, as well as a “dynamic” AI combat system to replicate Wick’s talent for mowing down disposable henchmen.

Stern says that players will follow John Wick as he fights to escape his past, and the table incorporates models and artwork inspired by iconic locations like the New York Continental Hotel and the Red Circle Club. The AI combat system controls the enemy lights on the playfield, allowing for enemy icons to respond to player behavior and illuminate dynamically around the playfield to provide a more challenging experience. All lights are controlled by player actions, timers, and random number generations, so this software is designed to keep players on their toes as enemies “move tactically” to counter your pinball wizardry.

Another neat touch is that every three enemies you eliminate will result in footage of Wick in action being broadcast on a video player. Ian McShane–who played the Continental Hotel manager Winston in the films–will also provide custom narration and the table has an original score composed by Charlie Benante of Anthrax and Pantera fame.

This table even has some screen lineage to the John Wick films, as pieces of Wick’s iconic suits that were used in the production of the movies are included as a franchise artifact in the limited-edition versions. Finally, the table has some very nice art by acclaimed artist Randy Martinez, who produced original neo-noir-style paintings for this release.

Naturally, these tables won’t be cheap and several versions will be available with bonus extras. The Pro Edition starts at $6,999, the Premium table costs $9,699, and the previously mentioned limited-edition table is an eyewatering $12,999, and only 1,000 of them will be produced. This particular version also has integrated lighting systems that are synchronized to custom light shows specifically designed for every song, and several other premium materials in its design.

While John Wick’s story seemingly came to an end in the fourth film, the world around him is still being fleshed out. Lionsgate has another spin-off TV series in development and the John Wick-related movie Ballerina starring Ana de Armas was recently delayed to June 6, 2025, so that more action could be added. Keanu Reeves will make a cameo in that film alongside McShane, and beyond that, John Wick director Chad Stahelski has a few ideas for John Wick 5, if it ever happens.
