Pinball Wizards: Meet the team behind Iron Maiden’s new Legacy Of The Beast table

Iron Maiden have released a video showing how their new Legacy Of The Beast pinball table was created.

The latest in Stern’s long line of machines was unveiled in March this year, where it was revealed that pro, premium and limited edition models would be available featuring 12 tracks, with artwork by Maiden fan Jeremy Packer, aka Zombie Yeti.

The Legacy Of The Beast table has been designed by seven-time world pinball champion Keith Elwin, who says: “I started playing in tournaments when I was 20 years old and I’ve been doing tournaments ever since.

“I had the opportunity to make the Iron Maiden table, and I said, ‘Yeah.’"

He’s joined on the project by software engineer Tim Sexton, lead engineer Harrison Drake and lead programmer Rick Naegele.

Speaking previously about the collaboration, Chairman and CEO of Stern Pinball, Inc, Gary Stern said: “Iron Maiden is one of the most iconic bands of all time and we’re excited to have Eddie join the ranks of Stern Pinball’s rock and roll lineup.”

Iron Maiden are currently on the road on The Legacy Of The Beast European tour. Find a full list of the band’s upcoming live shows below.
