Impractical Jokers: they crush Sal’s custom machine (they have it painted/powder coated) as a custom one by a monster truck. Wonder if he really is into pinball.

Does a virtual pin count?

Couple movies I've seen recently. Not sure if they've been mentioned already?
The Toy with Richard Pryor and Jackie Gleason. The kid has a Volcano, Haunted House and a Mars God of War in his bedroom
The Rose with Bette Midler. Towards the end of the movie she stops at a honky tonk bar and there's a unidentified pin in the background.

Ok...im going back to watch "the Toy"
Lol. I never noticed. Of course, i probably havent watched it in 30 years.

Same here. It used to air around the holidays when I was a kid. When I saw it on the guide I had to pvr it.

I know that Q is into pinball,
as he helped host the Stern Pro circuit championship
earlier this month in Chicago.
Q is also part of the Pinball Twinz spoof.

Fifteen, wow rare. The game was actually being played, and you could hear the sound FX. IIRC in other episodes, the machine was completely off and they were just pretending to play.

Not a real pinball, but caught this in a recent episode of Big City Greens:

Not sure if YouTube videos count but... this guy's name is Ken Heron & his YouTube channel is mostly on him droning in some very interesting places.

This video is of his house where he has 4 pinball machines.

Watch "What Happened To TNL?" on YouTube

Like him besides pinball.... I fly a drone & have always been interested in old radio stuff... I've been collecting tube radios on & off for many years.

This video shows (at 2:50) his tattoos of some vintage radio art.

Watch "KEN HERON - My Tattoos and Night Droning" on YouTube

The Twilight Zone's (2019; S01E05) young President of the USA has a Stern Meteor!

... oh, and a Whipple?

Just sayin, but a Bally DMD from April '93 might not have been a choice.

Tonight’s episode of Outdoor Man. I’m guessing the graphics are fake, but can anyone tell if the play field is real?

Stellar Wars?

Quoted from TopMoose:

Stellar Wars?

By the looks of it, I believe you are correct. Much of the playfield is redone, but big widebody where layout appears to be exact same (not to mention the theme is there). Just saw that it is a Steve Ritchie game from 1979 - Geez, how long has that dude been around pinball?

Entire episode was around PinBall with Mike being a wizard in a past life, as was Larabee. Larabee wanted a game, but Mike didn't want to give it to him (didn't want to relive the burden of being the greatest and everyone always wanting a game to see if they could beat him). They end up playing, but I'll not spoil things. Funny in that Mike even mentions "EM" and other pinball terms when recalling The Captain & Tennille pin (had to spell MUSKRAT LOVE to earn a free game). Makes you wonder if Tim Allen is really into pinball (or who knows, some writer may have come up with the idea).

Easy for someone who has worked on and played one. i didn't even need the overhead shot to recognize it.

DP got a new pin? Wish we could get audience network up here in Canada. The new man cave looks pretty awesome.

It's funny, 10 years ago I didn't give a stuff about pinball and now I'm spotting them in the background of some of my favourite movies for the first time. They just pop out now.

Can anyone name this? Saw it in the background of a Columbo scene.
