Cyber-horses in space, male-strippers playing holo-pool or maybe a wizard and a massive dragonfly guiding a spaceship through the constellations, what's your fave?

I played a really nice Defender at york or Allentown one year that was restored by burningman. Very nice machine but like to play FirePower2

I've only been able to play these games at a yearly big show, none of them have ever been at my regular locations, so I'm not too familiar with them, but I'd say Defender. The integration of the video game's rules with protecting the humanoids from the landers and the smart bomb button is very cool.

It would've been cool to see more video game pins from Williams at the time, like this and Joust. A while back I thought up a Sinistar pinball that would have a big sculpt of Sinistar himself up at the top of the playfield, kind of like Grand Lizard.

Love Laser Cue. Sold it not too long ago and miss it, but I just picked up an Alien Poker, so it's all good.

I've owned two and played them all plenty, even the rare ones. Star Light by a mile for me. I used to like Cosmic Gunfight until Lyman accidentally ruined it for me by telling me the scoring strategy, right orbit all day.

I own a Firepower II so I'm biased.
I like Laser Cue a lot and would buy it if it came up.
Cosmic Gunfight is fun too.

I need to track the other ones down in Ann Arbor sometime.

These are all great games . I have played them all a decent amount . I voted for Firepower II because of my personal history with that game .

Thanks everyone for keeping this thread alive. Hard to get opinions on these, not many people have played them.

FP2 is typically pretty cheap and pretty easy to find.
I think it would be a great addition to a mid to large lineup.
Also it is a great first pin.

Honestly, I'm destined to have a small lineup so mine is on the block pretty soon but it is one of those pins that I'll pick up as a project whenever I see one.

It’s not a system 7 but I regret selling Blackout
