Twilight Zone
vs
Junk Yard

Twilight Zone takes Junk Yard to another dimension.. Never to be seen again.

Your winner, The Twilight Zone.

The Shadow
vs
Cyclone

What Evil Lurks in the heart of the circus?

The Shadow Wins.

Creature from the Black Lagoon
vs
Doctor Who

The Creature, just like bigfoot and the Loch Ness Monster, is a time traveller as well, the Dr. doesn't stand a chance.

Winner: cftbl

The Getaway: High Speed II
vs
Centaur

The Centaur takes the car by surprise, and pushes it off a cliff.

Winner: Centaur

Scared Stiff
vs
Jackbot

The bot is adolescent after all, and gets distracted by the clevage, and gets eaten by a bony beast.

Fish Tales
vs
High Speed

He WHAT? he got away. But many more fish got away.
Winner: Fish Tales

The Lord of the Rings
vs
Terminator 2: Judgment Day

The Terminator melts in the mountains of Mt. Doom. He got the ring, but at what cost?
Winner: LotR

No Good Gofers
vs
Star Wars (DE)

In all seriousness.. Why the hell isn't there a good Star Wars game? really. The gofers hide the death star. 'keep that fully operational battle station under wraps'

Winner: Gofers!

Attack from Mars
vs
No Fear: Dangerous Sports

The tractor beam lifts the talking skull, into the saucer. Then the saucer is destroyed! Germany is victorious!

Winner: Attack from Mars

Judge Dredd

Transformers

Transformers isn't immune to the law. Optimus Prime is under arrest!

Winner: Judge Dredd

Red & Ted's Road Show

I've never played a Monster Bash that wasn't in serious need of going under construction.

winner: Road Show

Black Knight
vs
Dr. Dude

The black knight has an affliction that only more cowbell can cure! No cowballs in pinball.

Winner: Dr. Dude

Theatre of Magic
vs
Ripley's Believe It or Not

Magic will never beat a roller skating penguin, how amazing, another letter in my name.

Winner: RBIoN

TRON
vs
Big Bang Bar

Nice futuristic theme here, nude aliens or Tron....

Funhouse
vs
Firepower

Here in space, nothing can stop us, except for maybe a possessed puppet. 'I thought we were pals'. Uh oh.

Winner: Funhouse

Jurassic Park
vs
Pinbot

The dinos try to catch the bot, but he flys to another planet and escapes.

Winner: Pinbot

Medieval Madness
vs
The Who's Tommy Pinball

Tommy was busy being fiddled around a bit, the duke of bourbon has won!

Winner: MM

Guns N' Roses
vs
Indianapolis 500

Many Axl's are needed to make a race car. By default:

Winner: I500

The Simpsons Pinball Party
vs
Stargate

Kang and Kodos are much stronger than the Stargate.

Winner: TSPP

The Machine: Bride of Pinbot
vs
Banzai Run

I just gotta hand it to that upper playfield, it's really cool, and regardless if the bride has a better ruleset, Banzai gets it.

spiderman didn't make the 64 pin tourney? And STTNG? Where did this list come from? Those are top 10 to 15 machines, regardless of whose list you are using.

I think we should be in the final four by now.

I feel the same way about TFTC, as there are a few there that TFTC is better than.

I think they were against big pins early on. Bad draw for them.

EDIT: Just looked and they are still there. Scroll down to the bottom of the page to see all the matchups.

Dang it, I don't know how this didn't make the copy/paste job. It looks like I'll allow votes on these for the day and open up the new round this afternoon. Sorry for the confusion.
