Bill Paxton is the only actor to have been killed by an Alien, a Predator and a Terminator. His short-lived band, Martini Ranch, encapsulated everything that was good about the 80s. If ever anyone deserved memorializing in a custom pinball machine, it’s Bill Paxton. And if there was ever a geek up for the job, it’s Ben Heckendorn.
You may remember Ben’s amazing portable console mods, or his book about console hacking. Now he’s outdone himself again with the magnificent Bill Paxton pinball project. This unique custom job comes with a variety of film-themed play modes from the actor's oeuvre, including Big Love, Apollo 13, Near Dark, True Lies, Aliens, Titanic, and U-571.
You can read all the nitty-gritty details on Ben’s official blog. And yes, it does say, "Game over, man!" when you've squandered your last ball. Excelsior!
