Bally Wizard
Electra
Close Encounters of the 3rd Kind?

#2703 17 days ago

foo, here are your screen shots. I agree with topmoose on Wizard. Looks like another EM next to Wizard to me. The commercial is from 1982, the first one he is playing could be SS...

Oh yeah! Good call on Night Rider.
But I stand by my Starsky and Hutch ID’s.

#2708 16 days ago

I still respectfully disagree. The one on the right looks more like a Bronco to me than a Target Alpha.

Holy Crap! can't believe TRON is just now coming up in this thread.

Me either!!

I was watching it the other night, and I paused it to identify all the pins (we all do that...right?). Then i looked in here to see if they were all listed...and it wasnt on here at all! I couldnt believe it.
The REALLY crazy thing is that if you "google it" there are actually fan pages that list all of the video games in the movies, but there is NO mention of the pinballs!

#2723 14 days ago

This is interesting. Spotted this on a recent YouTube video from Roger Taylor (Queen's drummer).

Flash/Blackout/Firepower/LaserCue/Flash[quoted image][quoted image]

I just got to this point in the series. is the a picture having both Flashes?
Yes I saw them in 2 different camera angles I though they might have moved the game.
Asking why would they have 2 Flashes in 1 bowling alley.
I guess the prop room ran out of different early 80s games, yet they used EM chimes in sound track.

How about WMS Satin Doll

Looking closer, thinking probably not, but does have the WMS EM look to it.

To be honest I have no clue. I noticed the pinball legs in one of the hanger scenes. Didn't even see a pinball in the movie up until that point. These were the best screengrabs I could get after rewinding and checking every hanger scene for a better shot of the pin.

The first screengrab has a better shot of the cab if that helps.

The Black Rose in the opening of the first episode of the 1994 version of The Stand has been mentioned a few times over the years. Didn't see any mention of 4 Queens making an appearance later in the same episode.

Quoted from Daditude:

I'm watching Good Burger and noticed a lot of pinballs. I can see rescue 911and what looks to be a T2, but I can't tell the rest. Does anyone know?
(Some of you guys are GREAT at that)

Quoted from russdx:

Seen a few pins on 'Good Burger' on mini golf scene (kids fav movie) And kids started watching 'Malcolm in the middle' and there is a few pins in a couple episodes when they are at the arcade.

I took a few pics on Good Burger. I can see a rescue 911, Judge Dredd, and a Tommy...there are more, however.

i was watching Major League 2 a couple days ago and i could not identify the machine they showed a few times.It was driving me crazy

There is a Judge Dredd, and a Popeye. There is also a 3rd machine that I'm not sure about, but it might be a Congo.
