So guys I need your advice to add a new game to my collection. And now the problems with space and money begin to start.
At the moment this is my collection:

Ghostbusters LE
Batman 66
Turtles Pro
Dialed In (std)
Monster Bash
Rick & Morty

So I can add one more game and narrowed it down to

AIQ Premium and The big lebowski

Played both games and here is my pro/con

+ Nice Flow and cool ramps
+ Deep enough code
+ great Art
+ Pice
- feels like every stern game (more or less)
- could have more assets (Sound / Callouts)

+ immersive and well implemented theme
+ flow
+ great Sound
+ Toys und Upper playfield
- Price (4k more then AIQ)
- rules not this deep

So really hard to choose. AIQ is cheaper, but TBL gives you this mood. So both are top notch. Not sure which game fits better.
I'm not a fan of IronMaiden and JP2 - so AIQ is the best Elwin-game for me. The TBL is more unique but pricy...

Not shure if I should get rid of MonsterBash or Dialed In to get AIQ + TBL.

Let me know what you think about these games and what you would do if you were me...

It's about what ever you like and not what someone else thinks you should like.

Honestly, if it were me, I'd sell half of those games, (atleast keep R&M, TWD, and maybe BM66 & MB) take that cash and buy some kick ass solid state pins, a nice EM or two, and maybe 1 or 2 machines from the 90s and enjoy the variety.

Sell one and get both - probably sell one of the Sterns for the AIQ. TBL is supposedly going to have some code updates, so I suspect the it will be getting deeper with subsequent updates.
Nice collection!
