THE TOTAL RECALL PINBALL MACHINE THAT ALMOST WAS

Four years ago, Planetary Pinball, a company that owns the rights to manufacture, sell and distribute Bally Williams pinball parts, wrote a since deleted blog post on its website that contained pictures of a treasure trove of original hand-drawn playfield art. One particular item that caught my eye was the art for a never produced Data East Total Recall pinball machine.

The Total Recall art is fantastic. After seeing it, I was motivated to see what I could find out about this never produced game. I managed to find a photo of the playfield. Check this thing out!

A two-headed monster! Too bad they never made the game. In fact, the prototype game seems to have been discarded in the trash and lost forever. The last time that it was seen was at the Chicago Pinball Expo back in 1998.
