#2 47 days ago

It's not too late to add a poll.

Black Knight Sword of Rage all day.

Looks great, adds to the theming and doesn't double up on the game title.

#4 47 days ago
Quoted from gunstarhero:

Black Knight Sword of Rage all day.

This no question. Not even close.

#5 47 days ago

BKSOR

#6 47 days ago

I hate toppers and even I dig the black knight one

#7 47 days ago

I think the JP one is the best one the art is just stunning and the lights in the topper are just awesome!

#8 47 days ago

I am just joking the JP one is one of the worst ones honestly either the Mando or the foo or BKSOR they are my favorites I can’t pick between those 3

#9 47 days ago

Mando is way overpriced but I think it really adds to the look of the LE. The projector, mock cockpit, and light show are pretty awesome. BKSOR will win this poll though not even close.

#10 47 days ago

I still like the KISS topper, wish I'd kept the game.

#11 47 days ago

Yea for sure BKSOR will win kind of obvious the Foo one can’t forget ties into the expression lights also

#12 47 days ago

RUSH

*mic drop

#13 47 days ago

Batman66 sle topper is pretty good too

I'd love to see a KISS remake with the LCD screen on Spike 2 or 3, as I'd jump on that, but it probably won't happen.

Tried to do it but dont have the "user level". maybe poll has too many options?

#16 47 days ago

I am a fan of the Munsters topper... The raven pops out and taunts throughout... Very interactive. I do like the Godzilla topper as well and BKSOR is top 5 easy

#17 47 days ago

The Elvira topper is pretty cool.

Quoted from sleepygtr:

Does the raven have large talons?

#19 47 days ago

Rush

#20 47 days ago
Quoted from Strummy:

Does the raven have large talons?

No talons / no feathers just cheap black plastic - I am thinking about giving it a makeover since its is so active... Feathers and talons!

#21 47 days ago

For me it's Rush and GOT...love the dragon's flapping wings and glowing mouth. But I know that's the unpopular opinion. Apparently BKSOR is the best, whether I like it or not.

#22 47 days ago

GoT and BKSOR (orig price). The other toppers with mechanical features get an honorable mention but the price explosion puts them out of the running.

#23 47 days ago

I love the 007 topper, the the Stern TMNT topper... but none of them, are worth the money.

#24 47 days ago

I like Godzilla's topper a lot.

#25 47 days ago

Stern really does have a lot of nice toppers. I wish Godzilla topper was better though.

#26 47 days ago

BKSOR is cool but does not redeem that game.
KISS all day.

#27 47 days ago
Quoted from Haymaker:

I hate toppers ...

#28 47 days ago

BKSOR is tops for me with Kiss, GoT, Rush, Maiden Aces High, Batman 66 LE, Jurassic Park and Mando also high on the list. If it’s one topper, Black Knight for me though

GB. the only topper so coveted it spawned knockoffs.

#30 47 days ago

KISS all day.

KISS is bad ass.

I like GZ - over priced for sure - but its cool

The KISS topper is my second pic. Sure it's not "mechanical" but it's SO perfect for the theme and looks GREAT in action.

The worst toppers are ones that say the name of the game only inches away from the name of the game. KISS KISS is my favorite game! Dumb topper.

I agree that if the logo wasn't on the translite it would be even cooler, BUT those KISS letters are so iconic it gets a pass from me.

Bksor votes but nobody is saying foo fighters? I thought foo fighters was cool, but never have seen bksor in person.

#37 32 days ago

I have to go with GB, SW, LZ and Rush

Mando is the biggest turd of a topper

3 weeks later
#38 8 days ago

BKSOR, Rush, Star Wars, Mando are my top 4.

#39 8 days ago

Foo Fighters is awesome. I’d rank Jaws as the worst.

#40 8 days ago

Mando, BKSOR

#41 4 days ago

That Jaws topper is basically Stern spitting on us, I feel.

#42 4 days ago

The Jaws topper is the best one ever because I just bought one and have to justify my stupid purchase.
