Top 10 Shots episode made a great topic and wish I could have read viewer's suggestions. Had trouble defining what makes a shot a top shot and maybe you can spend more time on that in the future. Finally decided to use my gut rather than a formula to list my 10 favorite shots. This category is more subjective than most because there is no way to prove that what you like is best.
LOTR - agree with this pick - ring ramp
ST - agree with this pick - warp ramp
WH20 - agree with this pick - suicide ramp
TS - agree with this pick but found the upper playfield slightly more amazing than mode lock. Have you played anything as awkward as moving that large paddle back and forth? It blows my mind every time I play the game and once you knock down enough drops - you break through the backside of the wall, down a short chute and onto the main playfield.
FH - start mb and collect jackpot by shooting your ball into Rudy’s mouth and once more to collect super jackpot and hear him SCREEEEEAAAAAMM. Or hit the upper loop shot to earn a trap door jackpot.
TZ - qualify upper playfield, send a ball up and use two magnets to force ball into hole at top of pyramid shaped playfield. Has a great lightshow and sound.
BR - qualify lower playfield, battle vertical playfield and shoot ball out the top to greatest pinball moment ever. BANZAII and eye blinding flashers start two ball multiball and quick chance to earn a 1 million point shot via right ramp within time and in spite of the epilepsy. Both Banzai and subsequent 1 million point shot are primo.
Houdini - trunk shot - duh
EBD - clear 7 drop targets to light 8ball in the corner. Make that and 7 standup targets behind the drops to hear knocker, earn “1” solid lit letter in “DELUXE” on backglass and a feeling you’ve done something 90% of pinball players haven’t is sheer happiness.
TOM - magic trunk. Especially the magnet side that can rip a ball off the playfield and hold it vertical on exterior of trunk as multiball cranks up.
