You tell me...are there really only two examples of this game and both are unaccounted for?
What a cool game, too bad they didn't make a regular size version.

Thats what I'd like to know, I've been looking for this game for years. That picture of the backglass you posted is mine off the database. I now have it hanging on the wall next to my Hercules which is the place holder for the Bigfoot game. Pretty sure if you do some searching in the Gameroom Magazine archives you will find the story in the July 2003 edition.

I thought I had a better picture of this with the backglass next to the Hercules..., but I cant seem to find it in my files so this is it I guess....LOL.
I bought this glass from Mayfair in 2000 I think it was.

Just brought this home today. Purchased it off a Bally sound engineer who was hired from 1979 to 1981. He spent most of his time working on Bally Frontier, and was given this as wall art to bring home. Backglass is made of plexi-glass.

Elusive bigfoot even in the pinball world!Being from southern oregon 30 miles away from where one of the bigfoot tv episodes was filmed I can say this would be a killer pinball theme for my area!Even if the original is never found I could see a new version maybe done in fishtails type fashion with a motorized bigfoot topper!

Yes as far as I know they were all made out of plexi.

Some video as well.

From the TV show US against the World from 1977 on NBC.

Brief gameplay footage of the machine starts at the 1:00 mark with Gabe Kaplan playing.
