Did anyone notice the machine on the show the Boy’s season two first episode?

#2352 1 year ago

Buffy the Vampire Slayer has two recurring pins, Jacks to Open and Meteor, which are often used in this spot in the Bronze, but also are moved around whenever they need to film an arcade scene somewhere. Both of them get smashed during the show, Meteor in Season 2 episode 12 (though it appears fixed after this) and Jacks to Open in Season 6 episode 11. Other pins appear in the show, but these two are in more episodes than some recurring characters!

North Dallas Forty....is Nolte looking at the women or the pins???

Looks like El Toro (1972) and Monte Carlo/Odds & Evens (1973).

Yes, pointed it out 13 days ago. Some sort of rethemed Williams EM single player.

Is that FlipACard?
Pretty sure about FunFest, Gulfstream, Big Brave
and then Bali-Hi

#2360 1 year ago

Also see post#799
for another scene shot slightly clearer screen grab of the same arcade scene with fewer bystanders.
Can not make out the very far left pin as you only see the side art of the head.
Probably a WMS or GTB from the Graphics.

You were close but not quite.

The far left Head appears to belong to GTB Paul Bunyan

Yep I agree - 1973.

Quoted from DanQverymuch:

High Roller Casino.

This sighting was not in the Key Posts list before. Was that due to lack of pic, or lack of game name? We must have sufficient info at this point.

Editors, are we not going to add this one for some reason?

#2368 1 year ago
Quoted from DanQverymuch:

Distracted by the boobies and forgot to add it. It's there now.

Prior mentions were likely not added due to lack of pictures. No pictures, no index entry.

This isn't my thread (I just did the work to add all the entries and make the index) so I can't say concretely, but I think the picture rule should be limited to just pictures because they are stored here. Links to videos often break later when they're taken down or moved whereever they're linked to. If only pictures are allowed, there will never be broken links to videos and if you want to look up a video there will be a picture and enough information to look it up on google as needed. So, I need to ask the OP about this change that I think makes sense.

The Boys, Amazon Prime. Season 2, Episode 2. This is a reskinned pinball in the Apartment of Eagle, one of the Supers, about him with him on the backglass. EM, though this is set in present day ...

The buildings on the front of the cabinet remind me a little of the AFM backglass buildings.

Late 60's Williams would be my guess. I had several 67-69 with the style cab/head/door.

Season 4 episode 11 “Father Christmas”

#2376 1 year ago

scene from the stand. evidently stephen king is a pinball fan.

[quoted image]</blockquote

In this same miniseries, there is an EM as well in the scene where Lloyd & Poke shoot those shopkeepers. Can't remember the name tho...

I think you need to add posts #2358 and #2364 to the Bad News Bear key posts list
as they have different view perspectives with more games shown and also posts surrounding
those posts have actual pin ID info. Whereas post #799 has no pin ID info.

#2378 1 year ago

OK no picture but I can tell you where and thought it odd that they had a pinball there.

Diners Drive-Ins and Dives (Triple D)

Season 18 Titled: Tennessee Traditions

The place was the third one I think and had a Mexico pin.

One entry in the index, usually the first mention with a picture. If we're changing the rules to the best mention (clearest picture, most detail), then that needs to be agreed upon. Multiple entries for the same movie/tv/video/whatever will get too confusing and make the index too large over time. I know there are likely still some dupes I didn't catch in the index, but they're accidental and will be removed if I run across them.

After discussion with the OP, from here forward, only picture posts local to pinside (uploaded with the post) will be added to the index so we don't end up with broken links in the thread when outside links are changed/removed.

Quoted from PinMonk:

What was the name/theme of this episode so I can look up the episode number...

So turns out the episode of american pickers that had the Sun Valley was called Moonshine and Motors.

Georgia Wonderland has a Big Show and a Big Brave

In the movie Eaten Alive (Tobe Hooper) at 1:04:06 appears to be a Williams pin , but I don't know name.

Archer for the win!
Few games here. I only care about Firepower.

About 10:00 minutes into Drive In Massacre (1976) , we see Gottliebs' Batter up along with another Gottlieb game I do not know.

Saw that. I can hardly believe Archer is back. About the only good thing about 2020 so far.

Not just a Galaxy, but one with a moded cabinet and back glass. It's been in some T.V shows (see posts 216 and check here as well: https://pinside.com/pinball/forum/topic/pinball-in-the-movies-1#post-1768769 )

I’ve been meaning to post some close ups of the infamous Galaxy for you guys. It was brought to my place by a film crew a few years ago. I guess they didn’t specify “working”’ pinball machine at the prop house because I had to take some time to get it working for them. Enjoy.

A friend sent a GIF from a movie and asked me to identify the game. It was a Whodunnit. Not going to post the GIF, since it is very NSFW.

It's fuzzy but that appears to be a pin in the new Springsteen video.
