    For me its the theme and how the art works with that. Being said

    #104 7 years ago

    Aesthetic appeal is key to having a pin I want to keep..

    1. TOTAN
    2. MM
    3. CFTBL

    As far as music themed pb.. a tie between AC/DC BIB and GnRs

    TOM really does have elaborate cabinet and pf artwork... I'd like it a lot more if it werent for all the bunnies everywhere?

    #105 7 years ago

    To add to my post...

    MB, CFBL, Phantom of the Opera just to name a few others. Lots of great artwork out there.

    That's an easy to forget title, however, the artwork is great... Good point. You just don't see them enough.

    Quoted from EvanBingham:

    Just wondering what you guys thought were the top machines based on looks alone.

    If I had to pick just one ----- Cirqus Voltaire

    Woz is coming on strong

    #109 7 years ago

    Backglass= Scared Stiff/EATPM Greg Freres is the best at BG artwork.

    Playfield= MB

    Cabinet= CFTBL/MM

    Total packages for anything made after 1988

    1. Scared Stiff

    2. MM

    3. MB


    5. CV/TOM

    #110 7 years ago

    From the DMD era games, this would probably be my number 1 choice... TOM is also very nice though it has to be said... Pinball Magic is stunning too!!

    cftbl has my favorite playfield...cv on the rest

    #112 7 years ago

    You guys need to broaden your horizons.

    1954 Gottlieb Hawaiian Beauty

    A jewel from pinball's unsurpassed era of most beautiful games - 50's woodrails.

    #113 7 years ago

    2 months ago i replied CV.
    Now that i own a Tron i have to say my new oppinion is Cv and Tron. Tron shines like a gem from miles away..

    #114 7 years ago

    Okay.....wow, definitely NOT CV! Garish (as someone mentioned) would be more like it.......just wow.

    Creech is good, I really like the art work on JD, kind of like Tron also.

    #115 7 years ago

    After seeing in person this weekend, WOZ hands down.

    This coming from a former owner of Fathom and several other nice looking pins.

    #116 7 years ago

    Medusa is amazing. The art and lighting coupled with the back glass is extraordinary.


    #117 7 years ago

    woz is that good huh?

    Quoted from EvanBingham:

    woz is that good huh?

    Yes. By far the highest resolution artwork of any pin for both cabinet and playfield and tons of colors. The clear coating on the cabinet is better than most playfields as well. The machine must be viewed in person to see what I mean.

    Before WOZ, my vote would have been for Fathom or TOM.

    #120 7 years ago

    TOTAN and Xenon

    #121 7 years ago

    I also think Tron LE is one of the best looking games as well. Probably the best looking Stern IMHO.

    #122 7 years ago

    Here is a shot of my Fathom before I sold it. Probably the best of the 1980's SS games IMHO.


    #123 7 years ago

    More shots

    #124 7 years ago

    TOM for the 90's. Tron LE for the 2000's. And WOZ for the 30's.

    #125 7 years ago

    Sorcerer has to be one of my favorite artwork packages.

    #126 7 years ago

    c'mon, you all know Baywatch is the best....

    #127 7 years ago

    TRON LE only looks awesome when turned on, I don't think that counts as much as a true art pin like a TOTAN.

    #128 7 years ago

    Have you guys ever seen a Whoa Nellie Big Juicy Melons in person? All I can say is "DAMN!" That thing is beautiful - A work of art!

    If you're going solely on widely manufactured games, then I agree with many already mentioned here:

    AC/DC Premium
    Tron LE

    #129 7 years ago

    I love Nellie too !

    Other games I find beautiful:
    - Barracora (its backglass would be nice close to my spectrum)
    - Taito Mr. Black (Brazilian clone of Defender). Sick but beautiful.
    - Fathom
    - Black Hole
    - Tron
    - Nemo
    - Farfalla
    - Dancing lady (1966...)

    I love BBB but not (only) for its art...

    Avengers HULK LE and WOZ look incredible.
