I just stumbled across a video of a taito pinball machine and started looking into what they had produced.
They had several knock-offs including gorgar, firepower, black knight, xenon, and a standard body version of flight 2000 (with a layout similar to centaur).
Has anyone seen Taito pins in the US?
I wasn't able to identify this one--anyone know which one it is?
 Found the one in the video--it's polar explorer: http://www.ipdb.org/machine.cgi?id=4588
