    My new JJ POTC - I got a steal of a deal on it and this thing is loaded with features. My mom usually goes to bed around 9PM so I typically bring dates over to see my themed corner at night. Not trying to brag or anything but once they see it, let's just say this captain typically gets asked below deck.

    CC Astronaut. Yea, I know, but it was the first and besides I like it.
    And my Firepower with the prototype Firepower Hardtop on it.

    #53 1 year ago

    Every machine the day I brought it home. No machine after owning if for a few months.

    #54 1 year ago

    I thought it would have been my CFTBL. Now, maybe BM66 & definitely WOZ.

    #55 1 year ago

    WOZ ! Bolted at least until I get the Wizard Mode, and since I'm a billion light years from getting there, it's bolted for life !

    #56 1 year ago

    This thread will not update for me past post #44, what the heck?

    IF there can only be one it would be Gilligan's Island.

    #59 1 year ago

    I used to think my all original IJ was bolted to the floor but a guy came with an angle grinder made of cash last week and took it away.

    F14 tomcat was my first love as a teenager, was my first ever restoration and will never leave. I’ve told the kids to bury me in it!

    Is this is a joke?

    #63 1 year ago

    Absolutely not.

    #64 1 year ago

    My BSD Has been bolted. My 1st pin actually, It is not CQ, although very very nice. TFTC very very nice, double bolted (cause of the wife)
    All the rest never stayed.... CQ SS gone...CQ TZ gone..CQ TAF gone. Non CQ's but very very nice..all moved on. for different reasons.

    I fully expect MBR LE to be bolted

    #65 1 year ago

    Wow a lot of BSD. Haven't ever played it.

    #66 1 year ago
    Quoted from pcprogrammer:

    If you get everything going (at the same time) just frickin crazy *That* will want you to keep it. IMO

    #67 1 year ago

    TZ and AFM. First two games I bought years ago and they still remain outstanding games. They’re the ones that got me hooked

    #68 1 year ago

    The pins I’ve put over 80 hours into restoring are the ones I’d designate as BTTF, just because it makes me sick to think of working for less than $10 an hour. There’s no reason to bolt a game to the floor if it’s newer than 2010 or so. You can always get another one. Heck, I love GOTG, but I sold it just to try another newer Stern down the road.

    #69 1 year ago

    TS & BSD...probably have to say Congo too. I actually really enjoy all 11 I have right now.

    #70 1 year ago

    GBLE, my only LE, NIB, and Ive crawled all over the insides by now.
    and
    WNBJM, I could play endlessly. Always Fun, Never frustrates, A Childs Smile of Memories, always
    hits me when I play.....Cant release those good feelings. Bolted down!

    #71 1 year ago

    Keeping the whole present collection. I put lots of time and work in them. They all play and look great. MBr SE will also never leave when it gets here.

    #72 1 year ago

    I own 36 machines and I think about 30 of them are bolted.

    Would still like to add Four Square, Blackout, EBD and a few others.

    #73 1 year ago

    My Iron Man for sure.
    And my BSD. But if i have to choose, it's IM. Will never ever sell it.

    #74 1 year ago

    Gophers. MET. DI and tna. And imdn...and...

    #75 1 year ago

    Theatre of Magic, and Fishtales. Demo man is in the rotational spot. No room for more.

    #77 1 year ago

    None of them, some day they will all be gone.

    #79 1 year ago

    I own 61 machines most of them are bolted to the floor the only ones that are not bolted are wild life, gay 90's, Harley Davidson Sega, and gottlieb James Bond.

    #80 1 year ago

    BK for sure

    #81 1 year ago

    None of them. Although DI might be an exception with the new code.

    #82 1 year ago
    Quoted from jgentry:

    None of them, some day they will all be gone.

    Yep. Every game has its price.

    #84 1 year ago

    None of my games are really bolted to the floor but several are located up a flight of steep stairs and around several tight turns -- moving them tends to make me think twice about selling.

    I think Nine Ball would be the last to go.

    IMG_7937 (resized).JPG

    #85 1 year ago

    The hardest ones for me to let go of would be all the pins I got. That's why they're here. It would take another one I want really bad and there's not many.

    #86 1 year ago

    Every game right before I decided to sell it.

    #87 1 year ago

    My Mustang Promium .....gee I wonder why.

    #88 1 year ago

    Kiss

    #89 1 year ago

    AFM LE. Playing the original in a bowling alley 23 years ago is what brought me to this hobby.

    #90 1 year ago

    Centaur, Paragon (first pin), HS2

    #91 1 year ago

    As soon as I beat reactor 9 TNA is gone.. which means it is likely never leaving. Can't see Joker Poker or Amazing Spider-Man leaving either.

    #92 1 year ago

    When I tire of the hobby, they all go.....

    Until then, mine all stay, and I'm sure there will be more....

    #93 1 year ago
    Quoted from ZEN:

    Tron and Robo-War.

    Quoted from pcprogrammer:

    I really want a Tron. Hope they do a vault someday, that has the potential to become a keeper for me.

    Tron is pretty cool and I would want it for the theme more than the gameplay, but I really want a Robowar. That is one fantastic pin.

    #94 1 year ago

    Grand Prix was my first, and all (well almost) Gottlieb AAB Wedge Heads that I haven't dups of.
    And for sure, not any of the true 2 Player Gottlieb AABs..
    Oh, and the non-wedge head Flipper..

    You designate them back to the future??

    #96 1 year ago

    Bsd for me too.

    #98 1 year ago

    My TSPP doesn't leave the house until I do.

    #99 1 year ago

    It will be fun to revisit this thread a year from now and see how many ‘never leave’ games are no longer in people’s collections..

    Shhhh! We don't need anyone else to know how good Robowar is! At least not until after I find one.
