The Amazing Bill Paxton Pinball Machine

The incredibly talented (and patient) Ben Heckendorn, hacker and modder extraordinaire, has revealed his latest and greatest creation, a built-from-scratch pinball table based on the works and quotes of actor Bill Paxton.

Heckendorn crafted almost everything you see here from raw materials combined with blood, sweat and tears, including the LED display, the body, the art overlays, the backglass—hell, he even programmed the damn thing. Bill Paxton Pinball pulls soundbites from Paxton's storied career, ranging from Titanic to True Lies to other films and TV shows not directed by James Cameron.

My favorite gag? The Big Love-inspired multiball ball locks. Oh, and the constant Hamm's beer references.
