    This is the golden age of pinball. From dead rock stars to movies some of you probably still have on Beta and VHS anything seems possible.

    As the aging modern pinball collector watches his hairline recede and his waistline grow large he can fill his house with these memorials to a simpler time before marriage, kids, never ending work weeks, and the high stress of internet forums for the meager price of six to eight thousand dollars a pop.

    Yes, this is truly the golden age of pinball. I think we've pretty much covered the 80s lately so I'd like to see more suggestions from some of the other great decades.

    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    The 80s always rule.

    Oh yeah?


    #10 3 years ago
    Quoted from Captain_Kirk:

    Plenty still from the 80's to go:
    Top Gun
    Friday the 13th
    Last Starfighter
    Motley Crue
    Van Halen
    Bon Jovi
    Milli Vanilli

    Why don't you go start an 80s only thread. I'm sure you will get a lot of participation.

    Quoted from burningman:

    +1 for apocalypse now...

    As soon as it's announced I can see the marketplace flooded with used Ghostbusters pins.

    #20 3 years ago
    Quoted from xsvtoys:

    When I think of the 70s it seems most have already been done. Star Wars, Rocky, Dirty Harry.
    But another good one might be

    They haven't even scratched the surface of the 70s yet! One of the most iconic decades as far as music, TV, and motion picture ever! Not to mention the culture.

    #22 3 years ago

    The Untouchables, yes! And let's not forget this gem.


    #24 3 years ago
    Quoted from arcademojo:

    Just as long as it's not this one.

    No, not that one. This would be more like it.


    #35 3 years ago

    Build it and they will come.


    #38 3 years ago


    #45 3 years ago

    So far every suggestion here is better than most of the ones they have already done recently. To me. Except for the 80s ones.

    Keep em coming!

    #51 3 years ago
    Quoted from ltd73:

    Jaws. Jaws. Jaws. Jaws. Jaws. Jaws. Jaws. Jaws.
    Has to have every Robert Shaw quote in the movie.

    We've already got Robert Shaw in Battle of the Bulge so maybe we should go for the trifecta-


    #60 3 years ago
    Quoted from Pinup:

    Pulp Fiction - 20+ years counts as retro

    90s were better than the 80s anyway. Keep em comin!

    #65 3 years ago
    Quoted from Humph:

    most anything on METV

    METV is alright by me. So is Westworld.


    #66 3 years ago

    And The Omega Man


    #69 3 years ago
    Quoted from TheLaw:

    very pissed the whole HBO Westworld series is in limbo...or nightmare; was looking forward to it.

    I watched the original about a month ago. They don't make them like that anymore.

    #70 3 years ago
    Quoted from Shiny_balls:

    How about " Dr. Strangelove or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb " ?

    See, this is why pinball needs to break out of the 80s.

    #71 3 years ago

    And how is it they haven't done Rollerball?


    I suppose they could retheme LOTR.


    #73 3 years ago

    And an awesome movie.

    #75 3 years ago

    You guys are great!

    #76 3 years ago

    If only somebody would have the balls to make this one.


    #82 3 years ago

    And who wouldn't buy a Johnny Sokko pin?


    #83 3 years ago
    Quoted from sadler28:

    Cannonball run. 1st official race was early 70s. Could incorporate the movie too even though it's early 80s

    I think it would be better to go with the original- The Gumball Rally. Then we could move on to Death Race 2000.


    #88 3 years ago
    Quoted from Esoteric_rt:


    Back to the Future

    Married With Children (as if, but would be funny to play)

    Yeah, lets stick with the 80s. NOT!!

    #89 3 years ago

    I edited the thread title to make it clear. Carry on...

    #91 3 years ago
    Quoted from Humph:

    Grew up on METV shows, so it ain't all bad.

    Forgot to include token Wonder Woman pic.

    Saturday night on METV is hard to beat.

    Wonder Woman
    Star Trek
    Lost in Space
    Voyage to the Bottom of the Sea

    Why go out?

    #94 3 years ago
    Quoted from Humph:

    You watch that lineup on Sat. nites too, eh?
    Yeah, pretty fun stuff & the Sven schtick is good for a laugh or two - I like the historical background on the old horror movies.

    We don't watch it all, but it's nice to have on when we are playing and decide to take a break.

    We had a ritual on Sunday night as we would get some games in but call it quits in time for Man From UNCLE at 10:00. I didn't see much of that when I was a kid but now I see it is one of the most well done shows ever. Then they moved it to 2 AM. Sometimes I still catch a little of it.

    #97 3 years ago
    Quoted from Humph:

    That MFU time change pissed off my wife as it was one of her faves, now on too late to watch.
    Guess I'll need to get a digital recorder.

    Nimblepin says he gets it on both the east coast and west coast feeds with his U-verse so he can watch it early. Doesn't do me much good with my DirecTV though. But yeah it was a pisser when we sat down to watch it and The Odd Couple came on. Not that I don't like The Odd Couple, but it's no Man From UNCLE.

    #102 3 years ago
    Quoted from Shiny_balls:

    I'm watching "The Eighties" on CNN tonight......good show.
    Sorry Odin

    Probably easier on your stomach than watching "Monsters Inside Me".

    Quoted from Hougie:

    Never mind. I was drunk posting. Carry on!

    I'll be right with you as soon as I can.

    #105 3 years ago

    Lidsville? Ha!

    #109 3 years ago

    I'd buy this one in a heartbeat. You can't put a price on cool.


    #111 3 years ago

    50 egg multiball!

    Huggy Bear for the win!

    #127 3 years ago

    We are not numbers

    #128 3 years ago

    I made this post on the Aerosmith thread and then it went dead. Did I do something wrong?

    Quoted from o-din:

    Toys in the Attic
    Rats in the Cellar

    Uncle Salty

    Quoted from pinmister:

    The 1980's was a special era

    I made money, got laid, and the country was run by an actor. Big deal! It wasn't all that special. Only to you young wippersnappers that missed the real fun in the 70s and 60s.

    #141 3 years ago

    How bout a movie from the 90s about the 70s. It was pretty much spot on. McConaughey was a lot cooler in this flick than he is in those Lincoln ads he does now.


    #144 3 years ago
    Quoted from Humph:

    Now that's perfect ... Dazed & Confused ... Class of '76 & fits my high school to a tee ...
    All right, all right, all right .....

    If you were in high school in the mid 70s then you get it. Dog Town and Z Boys...

    #147 3 years ago
    Quoted from Humph:

    McConaughey now advertises Lincolns while rolling boogers ...

    Those ads are creepy.

    #148 3 years ago
    Quoted from Nevus:

    A modern skateboarding theme seems good with the obvious ramps and such.

    Urethane multiball!


    #149 3 years ago


    #153 3 years ago
    Quoted from Humph:

    I get 1 month younger everytime I read a post in this thread.

    By nightfall, I'll be back in high school again.

    That's the point! We deserve it just as much as those 80s children.

    #155 3 years ago

    Yeah, how did you miss that one Race?

    #156 3 years ago

    I used to run home from kindergarden to watch this.


    #194 3 years ago

    I'd go ape if they ever used this as a pinball theme.




    #197 3 years ago

    It was for both of them.


    #210 3 years ago



    #212 3 years ago

    Dr. Smith FTW!

    #233 3 years ago
    Quoted from str8cash:

    Classic 80s cartoons.
    #1 being Scooby Doo.

    Scooby Doo is OK here because it was from the 60s. So try to keep this thread from going off topic please!

    #236 3 years ago
    Quoted from str8cash:

    I'm a kid of late 70s/early 80s cartoons and didn't even realize scooby doo was 60s.

    I watched the first one and everyone after that. I've always liked cartoons, but the golden age of Saturday morning was definitely the late 60s until the Kroft brothers took over with all their shows. But in the 60s there was Scooby, Spiderman, Fantastic Four, Hot Wheels, and many more.

    #238 3 years ago

    Having a kid in the 2000s I watched a lot of Spongebob and Grimm Adventures of Billy and Mandy among others. We had all those old skool cartoons you mentioned when I was a kid too, And some not so politically correct ones that no way would they show them now.

    #241 3 years ago
    Quoted from markmon:

    I hate all old movies as much as I hate all old games. Super out on all these themes. There's no such thing as a classic.

    I totally understand that. But since pinball has stopped dead in it's tracks theme wise for over 20 years now we have to take what we can get. The old man rock themes they chose do nothing for, and the movies they are chosing really suck. So if it's got to be old it might as well be cool. That's the purpose of this thread.

    #251 3 years ago
    Quoted from allknowing2012:

    Seriously would you purchase a pinball from 90% of the suggested themes here?

    I wouldn't purchase any of the licensed themes they are doing now. So what's the difference?

    #259 3 years ago
    Quoted from markmon:

    I hate all old movies as much as I hate all old games. Super out on all these themes. There's no such thing as a classic. Anything more than about 15 years old looks super cheesy and all effects look silly.

    Says the guy with an Attack From Mars avatar. An over 20 year old game.

    What is that smell anyway?


    #262 3 years ago
    Quoted from benheck:

    1980's: Nothing better than Ghostbusters can be done

    What's that tell you? And the pinball machine isn't that good either.

    Lets stick with some of the better decades, OK?
