    yep, while not " proper" I don't mind sitting on a barstool to play once in awhile. I was lucky to find a TAF, TZ, and SM ( comic) barstool. Seen others occasionally on eBay, but for the life of me, can't find a FG, TSPP ( or any Simpsons for that matter), and shockingly....NO TRON!!!

    Surely, they exist somewhere...any ideas?....thanks....mark

    Well I must admit I am surprised too but I couldn't find anything either. Depending on how subtle you go (I assume there are copyright concerns), can you use a custom stool design place like this (first one I found, not recommending):

    For TSPP maybe go with just outline of Bart's head or something along those lines...

    Thanks for the lead...I'll give them a try....mark

    I like sitting on bar stool to play vids and drink beer of all things. I find that if I'm sitting while playing pinball I am giving up the bulk of my nudging skills, which are limited at best. Would still like to get a couple bar stools to have around my machine for those 2 player games.

    I agree. Playing classic arcades sitting is fine, but I couldn't imagine sitting and playing pinball

    You missed my second line....admitting " I'm lazy" on occasion.. ..I play standing 90% of the time, and always when I'm "serious" about trying to work on my game. But yes, I like to occasionally sit on the barstool ( mainly after a long workday) and play a bit. It's actually harder ( I think) to play sitting on a stool ( can't really see everything, no nudging, etc.)...definitely not as satisfying, but doesn't completely suck.....

    I'm not only pretty lazy but my knees can't handle long periods of standing still. I'm going to get a squishy matt pretty soon but I've tried the bar stool route. I couldn't handle playing so far away with my knees in front of me, nor spread-fk'n-eagle trying to get closer! Bar stools just wont work for me

    Thanks Labnip!!!...actually found an IM last week, and don't even own the pin ( yikes, hope I don't have a problem ). Been desperate for a Simpsons, FG , and TRON....you would think with all the merch tied to these themes they would exist, but apparently not......

    Almost bought his BBB ( even though I don't have that machine either)...really nice guy, and quality product.....I've begged him for the titles I need, but guess it's a licensing thing.....
