A recent video posted to Stern Pinball’s Facebook page showed the exact moment that actor Adam West got to see the company’s Batman ’66 pinball (which West is featured in) for the first time. After a long flight, the well-known actor was too excited to go to his room and went straight to the Stern Pinball/KaPow booth at Pinball Expo to see the machine for himself. (The picture at top shows West with famed game designer Joe Kaminkow.) Stern says West was “blown away” by the game and wants one for his house. Click on the image above to see the video!
