    I always liked Barry's designs as I thought they felt different in a good way when compared to the usual pinball offerings. I recently had 3 in my lineup: BSD, DW, & JB, which were my favorites of his. I recently traded JB away, but of course I miss it. Get well Barry, and thanks for all the years of fun you've given us.

    My first machine was Who Dunnit. Wish I had one to this day. One of my all time favorites is Doctor Who, which feel is criminally under rated.

    Without Space Shuttle, pinball might have died forever in the 80s.

    Get well, Barry.

    I love popeye and BSD.
    All the best in a speedy recovery Barry.

    “ I just got home from the hospital. I'll be in quarantine for a couple of weeks but everything is looking better.
    THANK YOU to all my friends for all posts and we'll wishes.
    I am truly humbled by all of the love and support from all of you.
    I love you all!”

    Quoted from Lawtalkinguy:

    Wishing him the best and a speedy recovery. It’s too bad he bought into the COVID-19 denial. Now paying the price. Pleas take this seriously folks.

    How do you know he "bought into the COVID-19 denial?" What a dick post.

    So glad to hear Barry has recovered. Fantastic news!

    Via social media. I’d agree with that assessment, but hopefully we’re all willing to cut Barry some slack. I’m sure actually catching it was a come-to-jesus moment.

    Glad to hear he has recovered. He is a true legend and probably saved pinball with SS.
