Quoted from TopMoose:

The one in the last photo is a Majors (Chicago Coin, 1941).
ed: It actually looks like there might be two Chicago Coin Majors. The other one seems to be a Twenty Grand (Williams, 1952).

outSTANDing, thank you!

I've linked Twenty Grand to the topic. Interestingly, i can't find Majors in the "Machines" section of the site... It's this machine, yes? https://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=1530

No, it’s the 1941 Majors:

One more correction: I think there are three Majors in that scene - two over by the Twenty Grand and a third across the room, between the door and the slot machines.

#3404 6 months ago

Never enough Majors in Star Trek.

From one of the worst sequels of all time, Caddyshack 2. Looks like Ty has a Fireball, Paragon and a Disco Fever.

High Speed and Space Shuttle seen in the terrific movie "By Dawn's Early Light" about nuclear war with the Soviet Union. Also looks like perhaps an Afterburner upright arcade machine (or something similar) and another unknown pin all the way on the right side (perhaps Jokerz or another System 11??)

The third pin next to the After Burner looks like it's a Flight 2000.

#3408 6 months ago

Okay, so it's defiantly a pin, but not Flight 2000.

Pins in bad movies seem to be finding me lately. FanboyFlicks did a fun review on this one.
This movie goes by many names; Champagne and Bullets, Road to Revenge, and if you watch Red Letter Media, you might know it as Geteven.

Aztec and Sharpshooter

Lol like 20 seconds into this trailer I was already sold and blind bought it for $30. Have only watched the champagne and bullets cut of the movie which was amazing but I hear the get even cut is even more ridiculous.

Huh, I searched the key topics index so only saw the diner scene with Night Rider listed. Oops

On the topic index, did you click "keypost summary" to sort the list alphabetically? That makes it a LOT easier to find what's been posted already.

Not a pinball sighting but on a Ray Donavan episode in season five they spend a good three to four minutes talking pinball.One of the brothers who owns bar is discussing putting in an Addams and a Twilight Zone.

Quoted from dookski:

Saw there was some Star Trek talk- anyone ID'd the machine used for the "Q Continuum Galaxy" machine in Voyager when they visit the continuum? It is a fictional game, but I figured someone knows it from the playfield. The episode is "Death Wish"

They reran Voyager's Death Wish last night. That "Q Continuum Galaxy" game is also a Firepower, just rethemed and with an altered backglass showing only two player's scores. If you freeze the image, you can see the left lock, left orbit, right lock, top 4 lanes, 4 matching bumper positions and, barely through the glare, the two sets of three standup targets below the bumpers. I wonder if it's the same (but unaltered) Firepower they used in the other episode?

#3434 5 months ago

Back to junk up this thread with some more sorta off-topic Silent Hill. This time from PSP Origins. They still haven't got the shapes quite right, but there's an Evel Knievel playfield in a "Route 777" - maybe someone can figure out the others, if they're real.

The most recent episode is titled "Pinball Jack." Not at home to get screen grabs, but despite the name there's not that many pins.

Space Invaders and another I didn't immediately recognize set up in his living room. What appeared to be a Fireball on it's end next to them. Maybe another.

In the basement there's a Humpty Dumpty that they discuss the importance of and buy.

Edit - It's a Williams Black Jack. (Sorry for the Plex controls)
