Can anyone list all of the Bally/Williams widebody machines from 1990-1998? I was wondering if there are more or less than 10 in exhistence.

#2 13 years ago

Let me know if I've missed any...

Twilight Zone, Indiana Jones, Creature From The Black Lagoon, Star Trek TNG,
Judge Dredd, Popeye Saves the Earth, Roadshow.

That's all I can think of...

#3 13 years ago

The number is right, just that Creature is not a widebody, but Demolition Man is

#4 13 years ago

Thanks a lot! Forgot about Demolition man.

Space Invaders (1979)

Williams had a the 7 superpins as mentioned, however Atari, Bally and Gottlieb all had massive amounts in the early 80's. Most were large voids of nothingness, but that was the trend "lets make massive machines with virtually nothing to do".

I had a Circus. The cab was massive, second to only Hercules, however that plays with a cue ball, so I consider Circus to be the largest "pinball" machine. I kept thinking "imagine what Lawlor coul do with a WPC this size...."

#15 10 years ago

I want a Gnr now! Thanks for the info.

PARAGON

Roller Disco, Genie, Volcano

#19 10 years ago

Black Hole

I'm jealous of your Paragon, Hyperion. Wish mine looked half as nice.

#20 10 years ago

Can't believe no one mentioned Williams 1979 Laser Ball,kidding it falls into the void of nothingness

however Atari, Bally and Gottlieb all had massive amounts in the early 80's. Most were large voids of nothingness, but that was the trend "lets make massive machines with virtually nothing to do".

I do love Steve Ritchie's Atari 77'Airborne Avenger though. SEGA also made Cha-Cha-Cha let us remember. Even classic Stern's like Flight 2000, Cheetah, Freefall, etc are widebody.

I learned from ipdb.org that Hankin made around 350 sweet looking Widebodies of Empire Strikes Back. Now I just need to find one.

Batman forever is widebody.

Holy hell! That is some serious awesomesauce right there. I had no idea this machine even existed.

#23 10 years ago

Yea, I've never seen that Empire in real life, but they may want to knock that number down to 349 in existence at maximum now.

Good call. I'm sure it's way less than that sadly. Other random games by Hankin include Orbit 1 (which looks a lot like Stern Orbitor 1 only less cool) and Howzat! which is a wide body cricket themed game, so take it off the list of themes we wished existed. They also made a game called shark which is a wide body.

SHAQ ATTACK

#27 10 years ago

Shaq Ataq is a gottlieb and is not widebody. But you were right about 7 williams widebodies, the 7th is Popeye Saves the Earth. I've never never played it and now want to check it out!

#28 10 years ago

Most, if not all the Gottlieb system 80's and 80a's were widebodies.

I own one of Gottlieb's Widebody pins.. Mars God of War....

Very underrated pinball!!!
( I know that maany people want to ban me from Pinside for a statement like this)!!

#30 2 years ago

Took me a long time to get all 7 in a row in order of release. Had to sell them to fund a house build, slowly rebuilding the collection as all 7 are great games, yes, even Popeye if you give it a chance!

Star Race and Circus are the only system80 extra-widebodies from Gottlieb in 1980.

Maverick I believe started as a widebody.
Wonder if any regular games became widebodies ( probably not)

Obviously not a 90s Bally or Williams, but Haunted House is a widebody. Beautiful machine (a biased owner opinion!).

Definitely seems like TZ could have started out as a standard width game...

Was actually playing TZ tonight and thought it was the only game I can think of that justified the wide body space fully. Can't imagine much of that game would have worked on a standard body.

#38 5 months ago

Fun fact. World Cup Soccer 94 was originally designed as a wide body.

#39 5 months ago

Embryon is a great early one.

Steve Ritchie’s Stellar Wars is a BIG WIDE lot of nothing.

Certainly not with how it ended up, no
