      Just curious what you would consider the best of the current production Stern machines.
      The ones you can still buy NIB.

      If you could buy 1 Stern NIB today, which one would you buy?

      If you contact this guy, he might have some other titles new in box still. http://www.tiltamusements.com/

      I would choose TF LE from the poll.

      He's got an Iron Man or 2 hiding somewhere...

      Given that choice I have a problem with the ac/dc LE or the OG tron.. I think ac/dc le would win the coin toss there, but I haven't played it to be sure.

      I really liked Tron and TF LE from that list. Slight nod to TF LE but when the FO mod for Tron is available I could see it sneaking past.

      Genuinely speaking I would pass on a nib stern unless it has been stored for a few years. They are too hit or miss with their software and the last batch of games hasn't really done much for me.

      For what they are asking for an le I would rather get woz and I don't care for its theme.

      Would like to mention that these are for sale new on amazon.com with no tax in most states an free shipping (at least for Prime members). Iron Man is the lowest at $4k. I think it is configured HUO though if that is important.

      None of the above.

      that IS important because those are the costco iron men on amazon. They made a bunch of home use machines that didn't have all the same functions as the good ones.

      TFLE All the way.

      Best Buy has the homeuse only Iron Man for $3,799.99
      It has not coin door, not sure of any other differences.
      Not sure why, but I would not buy a pin with out a coin door.

      Someone is working on a mod to add interactive fiber optic wire just like the LEs. I believe they're including the additional multiball mode too

      IMO....
      Ironman is pure crap.
      I might even rank it under Avatar which is horrible.
      Rolling Stones brought me back to crappy DE games of the past, that stupid Mick cut out is ghastly.
      I bet if you owned a Tron you would like it.
      Transformers is great fun.
      Haven't played AC yet

      Lost Ark Arcade in a Tourney that RawleyD brought down ,, Was Cooler !!

      So, you don't like IM

      I used to feel the same but then I played it more and more and realized it is one addictive, one more go, rocking pin, despite the cheap plastics. My favourite Stern at the moment.

      Naw, it just seems boring to me. It just seemed like I need to hit whiplash X many times to light whiplash, then hit whiplash some more....or whoever the characters are. Don't like the looks at all compared to some of the others. Well it obviously looks better than Rolling Stones but that isn't hard...talk about cheap plastics!

      I know what you're saying though...Transformers wasn't doing it for me till I made myself play a ton of it and now I like it quite a bit.

      TF LE is getting low at Stern.. They are down to about 45 total pinballs some still needing to be built.

      So if you guys are serous about wanting one hit me up!

      Definitely need to add Iron Man to the list.

      Ok.

      Very Funny.

      Who was the ONE vote for Avatar?

      LoL!

      On that list TF LE if I had to...otherwise none of the above....

      I don't think the SM Trent had was a NIB, I had called a while back before I got mine from Doc and it wasn't NIB unless he found another one....

      I'd take Tron, but I hate them all. The only reason I'd choose Tron is because it has Daft Punk music.

      WOOOOOOOOO DAFT PUNK FTW!

      +1...
      It's amazing how fast these shot up in price over three months time.
      Even though I am not a big fan of AC/DC, I must say the BIB:LE is looking pretty sweet.
      I'd probably go "Premium" on one if I HAD to choose right now at this moment.
      Avengers over anything else though...
