Quoted from girloveswaffles:

Would you believe[quoted image] the one on the right has a trimmed down version of Sterns Indiana Jones Translight? :[quoted image]
.... Or maybe there's a Indy VE coming out?

Heh. I looked through a couple dozen WMS machines, clicking their IPDB entries knowing full well they weren't right. Didn't even think to look at Sterns.

A weird amount of effort to go through on the ad agency's part though.

I'm enjoying all this sleuthing.

In the right hand machine back glass The top left looks like Indiana Jones but the middle right looks like batman66. Also the cabinets of the two on the right are identical and the green button on The right side of the cabinets is like the extra ball button but that isn’t a modern cabinet feature. Definitely slice and dice your way to Frankenstein machines.

Both mentioned separately in post number 74 and post 215.

There is a pinball machine in the new "Ghostbusters - Afterlife" film. I think it was a Fireball Home version, but without being able to stop the film and see, I can't be certain.

Dang yeah. My bad. I only caught a glimpse but it should have searched the laptop thing.

There's a Vintage pinball machine in this kids basement in the HBO/MAX movie 8-Bit Christmas, takes place in 86, obviously . I'm 8 mins into it and I had to add this

#3267 2 years ago

1970 Gottlieb Scuba in the above movie 8-Bit Christmas

I can't save a photo of it, but I was watching CSI Las Vegas, S1 E8 November 24th and there is a Black Knight 2000 around 3.35 minutes in.

Just a tip if you're watching shows on a windows computer you can hold ALT-PrtSc and it will capture the current window. You can then load paint or whatever hit CTRL-V to paste the captured frame and then save to have a perfect copy of the video in that window.

Reindeer Games (2000)
Was watching this gem the other day and thought for sure it was already posted here so didn't bother to pause and get a screenshot. Couldn't find it in the index so here it is, best clip I could find. Big House and Street Fighter II

Well, it looks like a pin will fit in a Ford Maverick.

The movie Role Models

https://www.imdb.com/title/tt0430922/

I'm actually trying to buy one of these and a street fighter 2 right now. It's hard for someone to realize their rusty beat up torn apart toy isn't worth the full price when it needs so much attention.

Quoted from JadedHesher:

So i'm guessing you'd like me to delete my post then.

No, just letting you know why it won't be indexed.

If you click topic index link at the top of any page in this thread, then click to sort by keypost summary, it will show you all the shows already there, in alphabetical order so it's easy to see if the one you found already has been reported. The only thing that's a little off in the index is the movie titles that start with "The" are in the process of being changed to <title, the> format, but I haven't gotten all of them switched to the more standard format.

Not necessarily - next time, just search this thread with the movie name BEFORE you post to see if anyone else logged it already. Saves from a lot of double posting.

Sorry, I didn't know. Saw the movie the other day and I happen to be trying to buy one. saw this thread, etc etc.

Okay, so I used the search function and DID NOT FIND THIS IN THERE ! I Swear lol.

The TV show "Sliders" season 3, episode #26, "The Guardian"

1984 "Jacks to Open" from Gottlieb

When they first walk into the bar, a pretty lady is sitting down and leaning on it, you can see the playfield and a bit of the side decal.

You are right! I have found a couple of pretty beat up machines with unbelievable prices!

O/T Long time since I've seen that movie. Have to see if I can find a Blu Ray Copy (I actually have a very old original Laserdisc copy somewhere).
