Quoted from SunnRAT:

Bally Nitro Groundshaker? Not 100% sure though.
Edit: Nope, its not Nitro. Heres another screenshot. [quoted image]

Quoted from TopMoose:

Could it be Aladdin’s Castle?

Possibly Bobby Orr Power Play (Bally, 1978)? I see digital displays.

To the right of that one I'm calling Duotron (Gottlieb, 1974).

Magnatron, the 4 player version

#2503 10 months ago
Quoted from illawarra92:

Magnatron, the 4 player version

It's only showing two (2) lit score reel displays in Game Over mode, Magnotron would have all four lit. Plus from a distance it looks like the bolder lettering for the "DUOTRON" game name on the BG, Mag's lettering is more condensed for space and has nowhere near that much illuminated yellow.

Compare these two vids (beware - first one's loud!!)

Quoted from pindel:

Columbo Bally Monte Carlo
[quoted image][quoted image]

Do you know what episode this was, or even a clue of what it was about? That way I can attach the season and episode number.

Quoted from PinMonk:

"The Conspirators" (S7E05, 5/13/1978). It aired on MeTV recently.

FWIW, besides the Monte Carlo, there's also a 4 Square (Gottlieb, 1971) and a Flying Carpet (Gottlieb, 1972) in the same scene.

There is U.K. show, "The Repair Shop".

The episode called, 'Rocking Horse, Pinball Machine, & Barograph'. Their expert repairs a 1933 Spry Ball, a pure mechanical game. A game made in Coventry England by Midland Components Ltd.

I have been binge watching GRIMM with the bride. Season 3 Ep 1&2
There was a bar that had a pin in it. always in the background, looked like an Atari by the front of the cabinet. Backglass was out of focus.
I will go back and look to confirm.

It was S1:E7 filmed about 4km South of my house in Port Coquitlam, BC Canada . Scene starts at 29:35 and they even give PAPA a plug. Of course the sounds are all wrong....a mix of EM, early Bally SS and System 11

What is the pin behind Whirlwind?

#2527 9 months ago

The Liquidator....again.

The first pic has a STTNG and a EM Kingpin. I can't make out the rest of them.

Same goes for the second pic....I don't recognize it.

Anyone?

All those kick ass pins and they're looking at that shitty counter top game like it's newborn Jesus.

It's called "CASHIER." They got it labeled on the wall.

In The Christmas Chronicles, there are a couple of machines in the background of the thugs' hideout. I don't recommend the movie (it went from sappy Lifetime movie to "am I high?" halfway through).

I can't tell what machines they are though.

There is a Road Kings, and a Black Knight, but I don't know the EM machine.

Quoted from sataneatscheese:

Season 12 episode 8 of South Park prominently depicts a made up pinball machine... one I can't identify. Unfortunately it is used in a rape scene as an allegory of George Lucas Raping his original Star Wars and Indiana Jones movies in the remakes.

Ha! just watched this SP episode and came here... looked to me like a Howard The Duck pin.

Saw a show on Discovery channel called "Small Town Throwdown" and part was on “The Most Boring Town in America" Lubbock Texas at a bar called Flipper's Tavern. LOTS of pinball stuff and games but you will have to watch it to sell all of them. Just a heads up.

This one is really bothering me.

The cabinet looks like a late 70's/early 80s style and the playfield has Williams-style triangle arrow inserts, but I cannot find any such games with werewolf side art or even a monster theme from that era. It looks like there are four targets in the center playfield that spell "WOLF," but if this is a re-theme, I can't find a game that looks like that. It looks like the inlanes and outlanes also spell WOLF.

Could it be a rare Zaccharia, Segasa or other European manufacturer that I'm overlooking?

Yeah, I probably spent an hour trying to track it down and couldn't. Going to be funny if someone pops in here and knows what it is right away.

#2547 9 months ago

It must be a re-theme, I don't think there's any machine with a werewolf on the side

Edit: The rule card says "Revenge of" something, but that could be customized too

I think you're right, but now the question is: what's it a re-theme of?

BTW, shout out to the set designers. A werewolf-themed game is the perfect choice for a character with a deadly alter ego.

Looks like a re-themed Stellar Wars.
