After spending a few years enjoying Bally/Williams DMDs I had the opportunity to pick up a classic Stern. After playing it awhile, I have to say that it is a lot more fun that many DMDs I have played. The simpler ruleset, fast flowing shots, drop target banks and spinners are a blast. Sometimes I just want a quick game (or more likely 10 quick games) to see what kind of score I can put up. I'd love to see other Classic Sterns from people's collections. Here's mine - Cheetah!

Quoted from Dayhuff:

Iron Maiden and Orbitor one.

Two of the rarer ones! I've played Orbitor One (?!?) but never Iron Maiden. Hard to see the playfield from here - what's it like? Sounds like it might be getting a "remake"?

Quoted from SR230CC:

My Galaxy
Fun game

Is that a skillshot in the upper left? Love the way it curls around to the lanes. Never played this one but it does look like a fun one.

Wow - beautiful Seawitch. I'd love to get some more time on this one. Love the interesting layout, theme and art. It seems like newer manufacturers are not as innovative in playfield layouts as some of these classics. Awesome.

Quoted from Dayhuff:

It's a great game and usually kicks my butt pretty bad. Three ball multiball is hard to get and the backglass......, we'll forget about it!

Wow - that looks like it's in great shape. Love the metal ramps and upper playfield. Gotta love those drops, too.

Awesome - another Cheetah! I see you have the blue variant, mine is black. Love the Stargazer. Such great art.

I believe you have us all topped

Really, that is an amazing collection. I've never played a Nine Ball but I've heard it's really innovative and a great game. That is some pinball goodness right there. Congratulations.

I also had to mention something else I noticed in those pics. Doors are overrated. They take up valuable pinball space

That Dragonfist looks like it's in really nice shape. Such a cool and rare machine.

Quoted from terrapinmark:

Currently own: Magic, Nine Ball, Star Gazer, Quicksilver. Have owned (Lectronomo, Lightning, Meteor, Stars, Seawitch, Split Second, and Big Game.

That quicksilver playfield is beautiful. Love the green.

Incredible collection. So jealous...

Quoted from Redketchup:

Had the chance to start collecting classic stern before everybody want one!

That seems to be the key - get on board early! If only my time machine worked...

I put the updated Cheetah roms into my machine this morning. It takes away the ability to keep hitting the left orbit over and over to collect bonus. It's much more balanced now.

Love the displays on this, it looks awesome.

Quoted from tdiddy:

Currently own SG,QS,SW and BG

Love those two side by side the red/green and the blues really go together well. They look to be in excellent shape, that's a great collection.

Quoted from MeNaCeFiRe:

am building a SG and SW from scratch.

How do you go about building one from scratch?

Quoted from SergioJ:

The backglasses, playfields boards and other parts are available. Find the right donor cabinet and head, paint and assemble.

It's amazing that it's come to this. Just shows the increasing popularity of these games and the lack of available stock.
