Quoted from dirkdiggler:

No screen grabs but there's a pinbot and a few others in the latest Cialis commercial.
Also looks to be a future spa? in Jim and Charles' apartment on season 2 of Brockmire.

Brockmire S02.Ep04 'Retirement Ceremony' 1 minute in. Its a Stern Trident.

911 Lone Star pilot episode. As they are preparing to remodel and reopen a firehouse that has been closed for a few years, Flip Flop was about the only thing left behind. But now it's gotta go. See ya!

This has gotten a lot easier since I figured out just to grab the camera and rewind the dvr whenever I see one.

Quoted from Gemini:

There's a particular second-season episode of Star Trek TOS called "A Piece of the Action" where Kirk and co. are being held captive in the storeroom on a planet run by gangsters and they have a variety of pinball machines in there in various states of disrepair... but I have no idea which pins they are. Most of them seem to be identical save for one. Here's a couple screencaps:

Anyone have any idea which pins these are?

Old post, but I just noticed these and saw that they weren’t ID’d yet:
Majors - 1941 (Chicago Coin 1941) - there are three of these in the room
Twenty Grand (Williams 1952)

I wonder if that SUPER JACKPOT game by the door is real or not.

PS - We actually have two Star Trek keyposts for this same episode/scene. Can we get the extra one removed?

PPS - It’s more work but it would be neat to have some way to tag games as needing an ID. With all this time at home it’s fun to hunt these down.

Left that Star Trek Voyager alone for now. The oldest instance has much better explanation, but a small picture. The one from a couple months ago has much better pictures, but no text/explanation. Which to delete? Ideally, I could merge the posts, but that's not possible. So I have left it alone. Anyone have an opinion about how to proceed in cases like this?

Quoted from PinMonk:

Actually this is for Star Trek (the original series). Posts 209 and 841 are both about the exact same episode/scene (S2E17).

While I'm at it, I notice the Twin Peaks entry has question marks for the season/episode. The shots are from S2E9 (Arbitrary Law) and S2E19 (Variations on Relations). I suspect those games show up in bunch more episodes since that's a frequent location in the show.

You are correct. Police Force has a big blue light bar on top, not a single Mars Light. Plus Police force doesn't have a DMD.

Boondock Saints pinball (lol) on Solar Opposites, Justin Roiland’s (Rick and Morty) new show. I swear this is the second or third machine I’ve seen in the first 5 episodes.

Edit to add the Entourage pin 5 minutes later in the episode.

LOL I like how they blacked out the back glass and the characters faces on the DP. Totally pointless when anyone would recognize DP by just his outfit alone.

Biloxi Blues 1988. Not sure which games these are. Edit: Gottlieb Dancing Dolls and a United Manhattan as pointed out by TopMoose.

They're playing a 1960 Gottlieb Dancing Dolls.
The woodrail in the foreground is a 1948 United Manhattan.

Quoted from girloveswaffles:

Not a real pinball, but:
In an episode of the Simpsons, Marge is having a discussion with Apu, and Homer breaks in with "Marge if I may, Play Devils Advocate?", and then the scene cuts away to Homer playing a Pinball called "Devils Advocate"

Funny that you mentioned that in The Simpsons, just saw same Pinball in a different episode

Started rewatching The Fugitive tonight, handful of games show up in the bus station in the very first episode (S01E01 - Fear in a Desert City). Not a lot of clues besides the sideart and one being a baseball game .. time to start the pot of coffee

Edit - The baseball game looks like Williams Deluxe Official Baseball (quick to find due to that odd slanted head and sideart). Gottlieb Gaucho on the end of the opposite row. Gottlieb Miss Annabelle in the foreground of the second screenshot.

These are great pictures, better than the one already in the index for this episode.

Doh, for some reason my eyes only saw the first Fugitive index post. I guess it's not all for nothing with better screenshots and the visible games ID'd now.

PS - I got on a tangent reading about those photo booths - Photo-Me model 14 circa 1960

I wish there were a way to pick the one with the best pictures for the index and then add credit to that post to the ones that were maybe earlier, but crappier (or less) pictures. But I don't see a way to do that.

German movie DER PAUKER from 1958.
A scene in a german arcade in Munich with some metal-legged, new woodrails.
Interesting sidepoint - the cool guy in the leatherjacket on the 2nd picture is actor Klaus Löwitsch who played later in the Peckinpah-movie "Steiner"

"Five Easy Pieces" (1970) - Got 3 of the 5 pictured:

Far Left: Cover Girl (Gottlieb, 1962)
Middle: Lucky Strike (Williams, 1965; I -think- its ball-in-play score reel is on that backglass, if not then it's the Bowl-A-Strike AAB)
Far Right: North Star (Gottlieb, 1964)

I'll let you all ID the other two...

Middle left looks like a Williams 1975 Little Chief.

Ed: never mind! Little Chief wouldn't come out for another 5 years! Middle left could be a 1964 Williams Soccer. Middle right could be Zig Zag/Wing Ding (also Williams '64)?

#2092 11 months ago

I watched a movie with the Diceman called Brainsmasher a Love Story and in the bar scene there is a DMD game with no backglass. I looked close and it appears for be T2. I guess they didn't want to advertise an Arnold movie so they just took the backglass off. Very strange. They could have easily change it to something less obvious.

Not sure about the Zig Zag, but I think you're right about the Williams Soccer:

A 1950s Chicago Coin Shuffle Bowler in a 1963 "The Fugitive" episode..
The bowler has 6" pins. An early 50s..[quoted image][quoted image]

Here's another screenshot of this one. I love when they get so close you can just read the name right off the glass! Chicago Coin Match Bowler

PS - PinMonk - If you want to update the index post for this one, it's S01E03 (The Other Side of the Mountain). That makes two of the first three episodes with games in them, I wonder if this trend will keep up.

PPS - I saw the note before and agree about not hijacking someone else's key post. The PS above was just referring to the season/episode numbers that were missing in the description of the previous key post.

Just noticed that both shipping wars episodes in the key posts are from the same episode. The same show and episode is key indexed twice. Just an FYI.

It got through because I didn't have the season/episode for the second one so it wasn't obvious it was a double. Fixed.

Yup...that's what happened. I didn't notice either until today when I scrolled through the pics and noticed the exact same machines. Just mentioned for index clarity.
