I keyposted that Fugitive one, but maybe we shouldn't be posting more pics to this thread until Robin gets the site back on a stable server that can handle old bandwidth levels so we can keep this interim site running okay. Pictures take a lot more bandwidth than text.

The pin looks to be the WMS woodrail "21" in the Fugitive episode.

1988 TV movie "In the Line of Duty: The FBI Murders" with David Soul, Michael Gross and Ronnie Cox, I still remember watching it on TV back then because it had a small sub-plot where these two murderers tried out being pinball machine operators but it doesn't work out cuz the games were all flaky. Soul kicks over an Eight Ball Deluxe and destroys it when he gets fed up, and a little later he sticks a gun in the face of the guy who sold them the business (who has more pins laying around in his front yard) and says "We're not interested in your pinball machines anymore." I loved that line. Pretty good movie too from what I remember, Soul is a real mean and creepy SOB in it. Found it on youtube, pinball stuff starts at 10:00 mark to about 13:30. Look for the higher rez version. He kicks a Rolling Stones pin too, Mick wouldn't like that!

From an episode of Dukes of Hazzard, this one is a combination of the backglass from "Sheriff" and the cabinet of "Jungle". Plus, there's Daisy Duke in a French maid outfit.

New movie Nobody a pin is actually part of the movie not just In it. I couldn’t put my finger on that it was off the top of my head. Hutch keeps his stash of goodies inside the pin and the camera angle is from inside the cab looking towards coin door as he grabs it. I thought I knew what it was from cabinet but the the backglass didn’t match for me initiallly. Now I’m searching pins and I’m dumb

Snagged some pics. It was being burnt, so this is the best BG shot

The video "Grampa Metal" by the band Posehn has a Deadpool in the background.

I think we decided that it's a re-themed Stellar Wars.

I see a Mars God of War, Flash Gordon, probably the same Eight Ball Deluxe and Rolling Stones as earlier, and a couple others I can't identify in op's front yard. How that EBD backglass didn't break when the machine was kicked over is a mystery.

Damn, thx!!! I spent a while this morning searching '79-'83 friggin pins trying to figure it out. Glad i'm not crazy.

Was that in this thread already? did I miss it?

I did see a quick shot of the playfield in the movie also, but i'm not a pin aficionado like some of you rain men

Have a look back on Page 51. Someone noticed it when the trailer was released.

Hmm, looks like they dumped the Meteor from their previously used trio...

Playfield glass doesn't break either, hopefully that EBD survived beyond the movie. They used the typical lazy Hollywood technique where the guy shoots the ball into play and you can hear it rolling around but it's obvious the damn thing is still in attract mode.

Anybody recognize the orange-ish game behind the EBD in the pic? Looks like a Gottlieb?

Quoted from Mr_Tantrum:

Saul Goodman meets John Wick. Oh man, I'm in!

I watched last night like I mentioned. ITS EXACTLY Saul Goodman meets John Wick!! LOL, I said that to my wife. Hilarious.
The movie doesn't try too hard. Its exactly as advertised, had a blast watching.

For those wondering, the movie is "Nobody" starring Bob Odenkirk (Saul Goodman), and it features a pin in it. I plan on watching it this weekend.

Isn't that inside the Boar's Nest on 'Dukes of Hazzard'? Pretty sure there were quite a few episodes featuring scenes in that dive, with that pin in the background.

Sure. It was a hang. But I still need a season/episode to add that particular picture to the index.

Watched it last night, and enjoyed it. Not to give things away, but basic story is a guy has a hidden past and when he's pushed he returns to his old life and goes scorched earth (similar to John Wick, but completely different context). If you like "good guys" taking out bad guys and having fun doing so, this movie is for you.

Also, has some actors I enjoyed seeing: Christopher Lloyd plays the main character's dad, and Michael Ironside (unrecognizable from his Top Gun, Total Recall, and Starship Troopers appearances) is the main character's father-in-law.

Finally, after watching I know where to store all of my gold bars - in my pin's coin box.

It was a predictable popcorn flick and fairly enjoyable.

I hope they don't try and make a franchise out of it.

One and done is just fine.

If it makes money they'll try and franchise it.........but then they'll kill it in the second movie "because" they try and franchise it. It'll be incoherent crap with a story that doesn't actually go anywhere or end and then it will flop and then they'll be all puzzled as to why it flopped given the success of the first one........because stupid money hungry execs vs just focusing on making a solid stand alone movie.

Netflix Show "Trinkets", Season 1, Episode 2 about 11:08 in, "ThunderEgg" made up pin with Dinosaur skulls on the side. BTW, in geology, a real Thunderegg is like a geode. My wife was watching this and so I got her spotting the pinballs now

Not quite a movie, but an Australian government educational video just released on sexual consent. Starring Supersonic. And milkshakes!
It’s been been judged so bizarre and boneheaded it’s already been pulled.

That's not ill-conceived at *all*.
