I think the poll answered your question pretty clearly.

I love the DW Time Expander or any cannon type toy. I haven't had a chance to play the new JP, but if it's like the Data East version, it should be cool. The MM castle was super cool, but wore out for me pretty fast.

Quoted from BoJo:

It's not even Stern's best toy and I think the safe in Soprano's is one of their best.

Yikes...

The Trex is far from Stern's best toy and half the times the ball bricks and rolls back down instead of going in his mouth.

There is no "best ever" but the TREX is one of them. It's awesome.

Not unless the t-rex calls me Bucko. Rudy all day for me.

Quoted from woody76:

not near as cool

If Stern could have designed the Buck as in Big Buck Hunter as a goat to stroll across the playfield and the T Rex leaning over and simulating eating him...

It's not even in the top ten of best toys. Not even Stern's best toy.

MM has the best toy in pinball ever. It has a moat, a draw bridge that lowers and rises, a rising gate, the ball goes into the gate, and the castle shakes and falls apart. Plus it has a wall you shoot the ball into. It's an incredible toy. Not my favourite Williams, but I have to admit the toy is out of this world incredible.

For Stern, the best toy is the ship on POTC. The way it sways is fantastic. Really gives the impression of moving on water. It visually shows damage by rocking, dropping sails, and eventually falling into the playfield. I don't even like the game, but I have to play it when I see it. At least one game, just to enjoy the ship.

Surprised that nobody has mentioned the BM66 crane. Not a fan of the overall theme/game, but the crane! A loader or backhoe would be a great toy: shoot the ball into the bucket and have it driven over to a hole and dropped off. Maybe even control the movement with the flippers

Glad to have found you guys/gals. Lifetime pinball fan but not a collector. Never occurred to me until now to check out a pin forum

Judge Dredd has a crane with a magnet that picks the balls out of the rotating planet ring one at a time and turns and drops them to start multiball.

And yes, this is a very cool feature. I'm not even going to bring it down any by calling it a toy.
