Why not a direct link? I'm sure it's allowed.

Found it. However, I wonder why you didn't feature the next picture in the sequence:



Rather an organic mouse for the Amiga, don't you think?

Wasn't sure on the forum policy on this as I'm pretty sure wasn't uploaded there by its original creators

Well, this isn't an Amiga, but a VIC20 I believe. Sorry, but I don't know where else to post it. Maybe it's offtopic but I think that you will like to see this:


From the new movie on Netflix called John Wick chapter 3.

Yes, looks very much like a VIC20. Here's another shot from the same movie. The colors of the case and keyboard on this one looks like it could also be C64, but the badge looks like it says VIC 20. The 2nd image shows the badge area enlarged.
They could have used whatever they could find that looked dated - I mean no normal people really care about details like that and the fact that they don't have a power cable and the power LED is off.

Interesting. I did notice them when I watched the movie, but I sloppily assumed it was C64.

(Might be seen in the earlier movies as well, or I just remember them from the trailer for part 3)

I guess they want to go a bit "steam punk" / retro.

Today's 8-bit guy -video spots Commodore PET in the new Wonder Woman 1984 movie (12:30 into the video below, for some reason EAB forum decides to mangle the actual link I'm posting with correct timestamp given in the URL):

I used to get excited as a kid when I saw that Paul Robinson used an Amiga to run his hotel business in Neighbours. For all I know he still does

His Evil Empire was built on Commodore foundations. Ugh.

In those days you could hack into your school computer and 'upgrade' your exam results. I'd love to see that clip again.

Perhaps already noted, but I've been spotting a computer in the background in many episodes of Miami Vice, that looked like an Amiga 1000, but I wasn't sure, until I saw this (Season 3 Episode 11, 18th minute). Also in the previous episode there was (the same?) A1000 in another office with an external floppy drive on top of the monitor).

Looks like some naughty cop has been editing icons in Workbench rather than investigating cases!

There was also an Operation Wolf coin-op in 1984 although that was the least of that film's problems!

A Commodore 64 made an appearance in WandaVision, when Vision was using one at his office job.

I believe it is episode Ariel..
Anyway, Kaylee and Wash are preparing for their next caper and are pulling circuit boards out of computers to re-use. They are pulling boards out of an Amiga 2000.

And if it isn't Episode Ariel then it is Trash, but pretty sure it is Ariel.
