    One of the little things I love when I wrap up a restoration or obtain a new pin is picking out a good key fob. Here’s what I got! If you made any or have any cool ones post them!

    I like your theming! For my pins I was gifted little keychains with the picture of the game on it! I love them. However my arcade games I keep on a Rebel Alliance key fob. I’ll take pictures tomorrow!

    I just use the actual key fobs for the games. One on a key left in the lock on the game and a second (an alternate fob where possible) on the spare key. I like to have the manual and flyer for each of my games, too.

    Here are a couple of mine. I don’t have the artistic skills to make my own so I order them from Etsy.

    Left to right, top to bottom:

    Bally paragon, Williams pinbot, stern LOTR (the ring), JJP WOZ ECLE, Tetris arcade (it is a Tetris piece), Jurassic park, Jurassic park, champion pub (boxing glove), laser pointer (from a stern meteor. It's how they destroy the meteor in the movie), pinball life extra.

    I also have a diner fob (stock).

    I have a gottlieb haunted house ghost (not pictured). I've had 3 HH machines. I kept the fob everytime. I will have to come back and show a pic...

    My JD isn't here right now (in HEP queue) and R&M isn't built yet (#544), but I have key fobs for both of them too...

    Here's a couple more for you to guess, though I had a handful more at various times that I dont have pictures of, apparently.

    Simple & inexpensive Space Shuttle keychain from eBay. This was my only ring that didn't have bling, so now it will no longer be jealous. :]

    I’m going to be wrapping up my Firepower resto soon and I need something for the keys. I keep looking for a space ship keychain that matches the art work but I’m not having much luck. Might need to make something.

    Quoted from mrm_4:

    Thanks!! Close, it's for High Speed, which had the Lamborghini on it. Getaway switched it up to the Ferrari.

    Mine hardly seems worthy of posting, But I'm on my 3rd Stoli.

    Third picture you included with this post, second key fob from the left:
    Just a wild guess but I'm thinking maybe that one is for Big Guns ?

    Haha, I put my RBF keychain on the plunger -- it's like you're removing the tag prior to launch.

    Had to improvise for Firepower. This is the closest ship I could find.

    I have been collecting pinball promotional plastics for over 20 years and have the largest and most complete collection in the world. I have thousands of key fobs and other promotional plastics. Many rare and one of a kind pieces. If anyone has a large amount of promotional pieces or an old collection they want to sell, please contact me. Here is a rare key fob rarely seen for 8 Ball Champ. I will post others from time to time.
