Back to the Future Pinball Machine by Data East
Back to the Future Pinball Machine by Data East was released in 1990. It was released a month after the third movie‘s release in theaters. The game features four songs from the three films. The Power of Love and Back in Time (by Huey Lewis and the News), Doubleback (by ZZ Top) and Alan Silvestri‘s orchestral theme. Michael J. Fox refused to permit his image to be used to adorn the back glass of the game,so the replacement image of his character Marty McFly wearing sunglasses on the game’s backglass and playfield was portrayed by Brad Faris, son of Data East pinball artwork designer Paul Faris. Joe Kaminkow, one of the pinball game designers, also appeared as Fox’s character on the advertising flyer and Gary Stern, former president of Data East Pinball and current CEO of Stern Pinball, was in Christopher Lloyd‘s role as Doc Brown in the flyer as well.
