    Some people swap avatars. Others keep the same avatar for all time.

    Some of you have avatars that look like an old gray haired man—-and I find myself thinking that this is who you really are, but I know otherwise.

    I went google searching for some sort of ball since this is a pinball site and found the flaming ball that I use. A couple of times I have thought about looking something different but decided mine is readily identifiable so I keep it.

    Some of you have some strange avatars.
    Why do you have the avatar that you have? Where did you find it? Does it have some special meaning for you? Or is it just an avatar?

    I use the BG images of my games.

    It flew by when I was outside in the yard.

    Mine is from a life long past, it is a long story full of twists and turns, sorrow and happiness.

    I'd explain more but my recollection is like smoke in the wind, the more I grasp at it the more it disappears.

    #5 3 months ago

    I dont drink coffe and like to joke with those that does, no deeper meaning behind it.

    I used my dog Toaster. She was my shadow for 15 years. Gone, but never forgotten.

    Actual photo of me.

    #8 3 months ago

    One of my favorite arcade games from when I was a kid, Williams Moon Patrol.
    I use the same thing on a few different forums.

    #9 3 months ago

    I am not, in fact, a cartoon moose.

    Rocky and Bullwinkle was the first pin I owned and the photo shows the new cabinet art I made for the restoration. It also goes with my screen name.

    #10 3 months ago

    I dig AFM. The pic is my launch button.

    #11 3 months ago

    Mine is a portion of the AFM I built and installed in my gameroom suspended ceiling. You see only a portion of it.

    My pic is just me and my wife. Nothing clever or fancy. I just wanted it to be an accurate representation of me. We love to play pinball together.

    #13 3 months ago

    I cut my hand open and had to have it stiched up a few hours before hosting a panel with Steve Ritchie last year at sfge. Clearly it was from saving a bunch of orphans from an active volcano on a hang hlider .. Or having a dish break while doing dishes ... I can't recall which one.

    #14 3 months ago

    I stacked up my 5 snare drums. There are more hobbies than pinball!

    #15 3 months ago

    It just fits like a glove. No I'm not OJ.

    #16 3 months ago

    My Avatar is my old excavator at 10,000 feet above my community in February (most of my work is done at or above 10,000 feet). Since I am a Rocky Mountain residential site developer, the Avatar is obvious.

    #17 3 months ago

    My now six year old crawling up to hand me a tool while working on a game.

    #18 3 months ago

    My favorite musician, Eric Clapton. At first I used the default picture of a light board and a Pinsider asked if my avatar name meant blue spin like a blue pinwheel. My avatar name refers to my two favorite things, blues music and pinball. Now if I could only find a picture of Eric Clapton playing pinball...

    #19 3 months ago

    Mine is a picture of me my buddy took of me folding up a Taxi in my driveway.

    #20 3 months ago

    Mine is "Roger" the Kangaroo that was known for being ripped. He was featured on a BBC series following an Australian who rescues orphan kangaroos in outback sanctuary near Alice Springs. Roger was one of the Kangaroos on the show. Unfortunately, he recently passed away. An animal lover, I always thought he was cool. I've done other icons but this one is sticking.

    My cat, doing cat like things on a pinball machine.

    My avatar is a professional portrait I had taken a few years ago.

    #23 3 months ago

    Self explanatory. Recreational only and never at the risk of the well being of the user or those around him or her.

    #24 3 months ago

    When I first joined I had Homer Simpson as TSPP was one of the first machines I ever searched for and bought. Then I bought a GOT and thought the scene and picture was good enough for an avatar. Also when people change their avatar, I realize I remember posters more from their avatar than their name. I always look at the name and new avatar wondering if I've read their post before.

    #25 3 months ago

    Mine is from the movie The Dark Crystal.
    It reminds me to always keep my spirit up when I know I'm right and everyone else thinks I'm wrong.

    #26 3 months ago

    My 1956 Dodge Power Wagon and my First Dog, Earl.

    I like trucks and Earl was/will always be a great dog. Miss you buddy.

    Mine is me and my German Shepherd, Bohdi, which I lost 4 years ago. Best dog EVER

    #29 3 months ago

    Mine is the first edition of the WPC Power Fix from back in early 2014.

    -visit http://www.kahr.us to get my daughterboard that helps fix WPC pinball resets or my replacement LED display boards for model H & model S Skee Ball

    Mine is my sweet baby Phoebe. Sadly I had to say goodbye a couple months ago after 18 1/2 years. I miss her so much

    #31 3 months ago

    First game I ever bought and also love tigers.
    Perfect match.

    #32 3 months ago

    mine is the ONLY way to play pinball!

    #33 3 months ago

    Cover to Infinity Gauntlet #1. Pretty famous illustration of Thanos by George Perez.

    #34 3 months ago

    Mine is THE LAW.

    No not the pinside guy, it’s Judge Dredd.

    Judge Dredd was my first pin.

    #35 3 months ago

    Scooby Doo fan here. My avatar is the Spooky Space Kook.

    My avatar used to be a hooded figure from Catacomb, my favorite cabinet art, but I switched to something that better matches my name.

    #36 3 months ago

    Mine is Wayne Campbell because Wayne's World is my favorite film of all time!
    Plus its a dream theme pin for me

    #37 3 months ago

    Mine is from the cover of the first record of my favorite band of all time. It's a pretty niche fanbase, so when somebody also knows/ digs 'em I get the bonus of knowing I'm dealing with somebody I'll probably get along with when conducting official pinball business transactions

    Mines Pleepleus the mascot from the show Drinking Made Easy. Always a good laugh to watch.

    My lovely wife had some glamour shots taken and I wanted to show her off.

    Guess you have to be careful in the sack not to get her too wet.

    I was never a fan of rum, I guess because it mainly meant Bacardi and coke. About 10 years ago I was on a business trip at Trinidad & Tobago where I was introduced to this delicious sipping rum and a whole new world of taste was opened for me. It’s hard to find, but oh so tasty so I keep a pic of the bottle as my avatar

    #43 3 months ago

    I don't technically have silver balls but I've always liked Silverball Mania. Sums up the 80s pinball experience pretty well.

    #45 3 months ago

    I have this pix in my garage/games room..I’ve always been a big fan of ‘the greatest’ inside and outside of the ring..

    #46 3 months ago

    My avatar name came first, I have used it for all things gaming for decades. It is a mix of my real last name with a very large classic monster that breaks a lot of shit. My avatar picture is a homer Simpson/Godzilla hybrid chosen to reflect that TSPP is the first pin I purchased and still currently own and love.

    I loved Mad Magazine when I was a kid and read it all the time. Pinball came along a bit later. I guess my Avatar reminds me of my misspent youth all those years ago.

    #48 3 months ago

    My daughter drew this up for me...represents the ominous shadowy figure which I am...entering the homes of unsuspecting Craigslist sellers...playing your games...then asking to use the restroom
