Quoted from RTS:
I'm not sure it's easier to repair if it breaks, but the modern LE remake looks better.
For the same money, the LE made the original less desirable to me. Perhaps the purists prefer the original, but side by side, AFMLE green is the best version out there. That topper isn't just a visual upgrade. It adds excitement when you play.
Go to the remake page. The remakes suck. They don’t play the same period. I have owned both. The playfield colors don’t match and they dimple like the moon. The leds are easy change. If you played a “dark” one that is because of the lighting they had in it. I would put mine against any remake junk. Only the topper on the remake LE is cool until you play and sounds like a mechanical nightmare or kitchen appliance. A lot of remake sellers buying originals thus none around. I have had multiple friends. They love the remake until someone shows them the flaws and they play.
