No, many other better pins to choose from to round off your collection. As a simple, yet valuable piece of advice for what to add to your current 2 pin collection:

Buy a 3+ flipper pin.

Quoted from Notpinhead:

We love TSPP, and we was considering it as the next adition to our small collection, BUT we were mesmerized by the light show of GB. We really do not know which one should be our next step.
- add GB to MM&MB: GOOD: NIB experience, 201X model (light-show, shaker...). BAD: too many complaints suggest that fun may not last as we play it more.
- add AFM to MM&MB: GOOD: great game BAD: overlaping with MM
- add TSPP MM&MB: GOOD: different (3+ flipper) BAD: not as great as AFM, no NIB experience, no 201X model.
In all the three cases, we like both the game and the theme.

Have you tried/considered:
Twilight Zone
White Water?

Quoted from Notpinhead:

I do not like TZ. Maybe I am not that good playing pinball.
I really like both Shadow and White Water, but my space for pinball is limited to have all of them.
I never had the opportunity of playing Tron.
BTW, this community is GREAT, thank you for all your replies

If you are not that great playing pinball, you’ll hate Ghostbusters after a while. One of the things (among many) that would prevent me from owning a GB is that the width between the flippers is wider, making the gameplay more difficult.

Quoted from jawjaw:

Tron is a bit overrated imo. It's kind of like GB in that it has a lot of great ingredients and things I like but just doesn't come together somehow. Congo has a very similar layout and I absolutely love that game. Pinball can be weird like that. I usually don't like stop-and-go pins but TZ is my favorite of all time. Not sure really why but just like playing it. Do agree with others that in the end, get the game you want and don't listen to anyone else.

But if he didn’t want to listen to anybody else, why create a topic?

FYI, Congo is excellent and would recommend above Tron. I was going to suggest Congo, but thought it may be too rare/obscure.
