Quoted from Jackontherocks:

Con Air during the bar scene when he is dancing with his wife, maybe Time Zone or something turned off in background

Caught that while watching this weekend. Time Zone confirmed.

Sweet group of Ballys there!

Take a look at each frame and see how each machine somewhat connects with the person it shares a scene with. I havent seen the movie in awhile so not sure if they did something like that.

New American Pickers last night, Hollywood Hot Rods (S22 / Episode 8), picking a guy in Ohio with a lot of arcade / pinball / amusement park stuff.

Way too many pins (all in pieces / disassembled), I started to do screen grabs but it was a lot. Mostly cabinet sides, or quick shorts of glass / playfields in the background.

Mike ended up buying a 1960 Gottlieb Wagon Train, drawn by the western / cowboys & indians theme

I saw that episode. He thought it was from the 40s but it was from 1960. He paid $550. I looked it up on Pinside and a fully refurbished Wagon Train was listed for $1200. If Mike gets it restored I don’t think there would be much left on the bone for him to make a profit.

#2756 3 years ago

I looked right past the pins, and to Tron and Star Wars arcades.

#2757 3 years ago
Quoted from PinMonk:

Is this a movie or tv series?

Sorry for the ridiculously late reply (life right), but this is movie that I guess recently became a "cult classic" or whatever since no one watched it the first time.

I found it funny the kid in the film was rich enough to have his own mini-arcade/game room. I think there's a Star Wars arcade machine in this scene too.

#2758 3 years ago

Here's an oldie, from the 1950 noire "Quicksand". It's a pretty good flick where Mickey Rooney is an auto mechanic who soon resorts to being a low-down criminal. While he's burglarizing the arcade the cops see him and shoot the place up but they miss this pin. Can anybody id the game?

My wife just called to let me know Season 3, Episode 15 of ER has a Bad Cats in it! I'll get a screen shot tonight.

#2761 2 years ago

The latest episode of FBI: Most Wanted had an old Baseball EM, a Jackbot (with the name taped over), and (I think) a WWE with an altered backglass.

Attached. There were a few other glimpses but this was the best shot. Amusing thing was it was making EM noises.

Did anyone determine if/that Nic/Willy is playing a rethemed Devils Dare.

I'd put money on it.

Negative. There's a baseball game (which you mentioned) and a Dialed In! by JJP, along with an AFM. They're renamed and obscured, of course, but that's *definitely* what they are. You probably saw the "Jack" in JJP and thought it was Jack*Bot, but it wasn't.

#2771 2 years ago

I called it.

The displays are a giveaway along with the location of the visible standups.

Yes, you are correct. I only got to see it as it went by. Going back to their site I was able to pause it on the scene and get this capture.

They certainly went out of their way to disguise the machines (cabinets and all). They even made the Dialed In look like it had a DMD.

The backbox images they used made it look like a modified JackBot and a renamed WWE, but you are right - they are actually AFM and Dialed In. At least that's what the playfields appear to be.

Skeeball machines in the background?

Also can anyone tell what is back to back with Gorgar?

While I can't be certain due to limited exposed artwork and such, if I had to guess it would be KISS.

Looks like a Darling/Jubilee to me, note the cabinet artwork

That's exactly what made me think it was KISS. You could certainly be right. I'm just guessin'.

More like he's taking a loss, I wouldn't restore that for anything less than 1500, and that's just the mechanicals.

Season 3, Episode 10 on the Fugitive, I first saw an early 1950s (I think Chicago Coin)
Shuffle Bowler. Then a bit later, from a distance, I saw a pin with animation. I should have
had an idea what it was, but didn't. Then later in the episode, a close up.
If you happen to like this drama serious, this was a good episode. It was part 2 of episode
9..
