Oh, man. There are usually two groups of items on Fan Made: geeky-embarrassing and geeky-awesome. And my friends, this one-of-a-kind Bill Paxton pinball machine falls squarely into the latter category.

Corona's Coming Attractions steered us towards this pet project of one Benjamin J. Heckendorn, a pinball machine mod that takes its cues from Paxton's whole filmography, with references ranging from True Lies and Titanic to Apollo 13 and Aliens (and I heartily agree with the Corona-made suggestion that Paxton's Hicks Hudson better be the one saying "Game over, man!" when all is said and done).

On his own blog, Heckendorn explained that he's been cracking away at this since 2005 and hopes to have the machine done in time for the 2010 Midwest Gaming Classic in Milwaukee, WI. Check out his site for more photos and videos; we've included one of the latter after the jump.

(...man, he even made room for a Vertical Limit reference!)
