Lead Designer, George Gomez, Stern’s Chief Creative Officer and EVP discusses his inspiration for this new era of 007 pinball on the 007.com website.

"Bond has a history with pinball – there were games in the ‘80s and ‘90s based on Moonraker and GoldenEye. But I wanted to celebrate the original genre-defining films: the movies that built the legend. This is my James Bond. My aunt took me and a buddy to see Goldfinger in 1965 when I was 10: big theatre, marquee lights, red velvet seats. She dropped us off with popcorn and candy money and told us that she had seen it and we would love it. We called her from a pay phone in the lobby after the first showing and told her we’d like to stay to see it again. We did. Cool aunt – I’ve dedicated the game to her in the credit roll."
