    How well do you know your pinball spinners? Some of these are pretty obvious, others maybe not so much.

    The ones I got without much effort:

    Some Stern DMD game
    Family Guy
    Elvis
    Embryon
    Medusa
    Kiss
    Silverball Mania
    Skateball
    Flash
    Blackwater 100
    Space Shuttle
    BSD in there? Probably not
    Dracula
    Xenon
    Fathom? (yes, verified)
    Robocop
    Centaur

    #3 2 years ago

    I love these type of games. Oh, and LIONMAN!!!!

    Oh, I don't remember a spinner in Centaur. I think you are looking at Space Invaders (similar color scheme)

    I think the one you reference as Embryon is actually Elektra, and the one you reference as Xenon is Embryon.

    I know I see tron , twister, 24, space shuttle, genie, and phantom of the opera these are games I see that have not been mentioned yet

    #6 2 years ago

    Fish Tales
    Mystic
    Firepower?

    #7 2 years ago

    Surfer/Surf Champ

    #8 2 years ago

    space riders, middle earth, superman, genie

    #9 2 years ago

    That's probably not Robocop but La Rettata (or whatever it's called).

    BSD doesn't have a spinner. Is that Stern Dracula or EM Vampire?

    Are those white spinners plastic? Who makes those?

    It's robocop: http://www.ipdb.org/showpic.pl?id=1976&picno=61083

    Stern Dracula.

    Quoted from dmbjunky:

    Gottlieb system 1 games and Atari Superman.

    #11 2 years ago

    Who's that supposed to be on that Superman spinner? It doesn't look like Superman.

    Edit: I just remember Lex Luthor used to dress in a jump suit. Is that him?

    #12 2 years ago

    For a minute there I thought you were a new type of pinball collector.
    "Collector of spinners".

    Here is one people won't see often, if ever.
    Some people don't even know the game has a spinner.
    Yes, this is a real game, and not a prototype, so I am not trying to cheap trick people.

    How well to people REALLY know their spinners?

    Missing one on the top row...IJ, maybe?

    The missing one on the bottom row is Gorgar.

    The missing one on the bottom row is Gorgar.

    IJ or IJ4? I don't think IJ has a spinner.

    And everyone thinks Row 5, column 6 is Fish Tales. While it might be because it does look like the Monster Fish shot. I always thought it was just a silver / prism spinner.

    Row 3 column 2 bugs me because it is familiar.

    I'm displeased that you didn't include any zaccaria spinners in the group.

    #28 2 years ago

    Gotta be either a clown or food themed pin. Punchy The Clown maybe? I see a pie shot on the playfield; can't tell if there's a spinner though. Good one.

    Yep. Thanks all for participating!

    #34 2 years ago

    I was gonna say Tron right away for the first one in my first post and I was sure, but when I went to check it had the face of the lady (sorry never watched the movie) on it so I didn't list it. Are the LE spinners different or something, or is he on the back of the spinner?

    #35 2 years ago

    Now if you could just get these all mounted and working on one playfield...

    #36 2 years ago

    Another mystery spinner, front and back.
    Only a few may know this game.
    When rotated at high speed, it completes the picture just like Sinbad or Genie.
    A few small hints, it was made before most started collecting here, many were born, and the game has two of them in a symmetrical laned playfield.

    Still a major manufacturer, no weird oddball stuff.

    It seems french.

    It's not as fun if you're the only who knows these machines.

    The woman, Quorra, is on the right side of the left ramp. The guy, who cares, is a spinner on the right orbit shot,

    image-9 (resized).jpg

    #44 2 years ago

    for the record. Row 3 number 4 is alien poker. Might be firepower 2 as well but it's alien poker for sure.

    #45 2 years ago

    How bout this one?

    image-8 (resized).jpg

    #46 2 years ago
    Quoted from Taxman:

    The guy, who cares

    It does say his name right under quorra's on the playfield. Zuse.
