Parker Bros Master Merlin used in the TV show Joss Whedon's Firefly:

Parker Bros' Master Merlin can be seen in these images from the 20th Century Fox TV show Firefly (created by Joss Whedon).
The show aired briefly in 2002, but has such a strong following that Universal gave Whedon the green light to make a movie
to conclude the series (which will be named after the ship: Serenity). The game has been painted and has a wire attached to it,
and is used as prop controller for the bottom hatch and wench of the Firefly-clash ship 'Serenity'. Kaylee (Jewel Staite) uses it to
lower Jayne (Adam Baldwin) onto a moving train in the episode The Train Job. (Didn't notice this prop in Serenity...)
