Bill Paxton Pinball becomes most-delayed Benheck project ever

Having been in some sort of development since spring of 2005, Bill Paxton Pinball has now become the most delayed Ben Heckendorn project ever, finally surpassing the four agonizing years it took to complete Port Washington (which is still too painful for me to watch).

Who knows when, if ever, this all custom pinball machine will ever be finished. The backglass art makes a great wall decoration, but hopefully someday we see it lit up like a Christmas tree.

  1. You should probably make it a goal: Bill Paxton Pinball, lit up like a Christmas tree by Christmas-time (’09). Or enter your own year into that equation, ha.

  2. Well, as long as it may have taken you to make Port Washington…I still consider to be my favorite movie of all time. I definately want a sequel, and Id be willing to pony up some of your requested ONE MILLION DOLLARS to fund it.

  4. That back glass looks great the only issue I have with it is that the cut out on the bottom for the score screen is not the correct dimensions for the standard pinball dot-matrix display. I say go big with this and even include those crude animations and poorly rendered movie clips just like the real machines.

  5. Ash, there will never, ever, EVER be a sequel to Port Washington. Sorry…

    Hossrex, I made my own LED matrix for the display, thus the custom size.

  6. In the words of Darth Vader-”NNNNNNNNOOOOOOOOOOO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!” But yeah, I already knew that…but the dream shall never die!

  7. HOLY SHIT THAT IS THE COOLEST THING I HAVE EVER SEEN

    BEN IF YOU DON’T FINISH THIS I WILL BREAK YOUR LEGS AND FORCE YOU TO MAKE AN N64 PORTABLE

  8. I don’t know. Bill Paxton is pretty cool and all, but BRUCE CAMPBELL pinball would be even awesomer!!!

  9. That is so awesome. A friend of mine once met him and told him his role as Chet in Weird Science was his climax.

  10. Why not do it in Visual Pinball or Future Pinball? (or at least do it before the other goobers make it for you lol)
