    I’m a mod guy but think that’s way too many. I just kept the left plastic one on mine. But hey, it’s your game. Do what makes you happy.

    #3 76 days ago

    Thats a lot of eddies...

    #4 76 days ago

    I think it needs a mallard duck...

    #5 76 days ago

    Idk, the plastic standups are so cheesy, and these were all used cheap ones off ebay. So I'll play for awhile and maybe thin the herd if needed

    #6 76 days ago

    I think the 3 bigger Eddies fit well but when you start throwing other off scale figures it doesn’t match. JMO, but it’s your game, do with it as you wish.

    Sometimes you got to get a bigger eddie.

    Oooooh that poor game.

    #10 76 days ago

    Haha. Y be ordinary?

    #11 76 days ago

    That’s a lot unless you want to put a pink corvette and a Ken Dollin there to complete the look.

    #12 76 days ago

    I’m actually seeing a few missed opportunities on the pop numbers and slingshots!

    #13 76 days ago

    Hey ,one guy likes it ,maybe. I'm thinkin a lil cluttered, but hate the plastic stock pieces. Now a game like dialed in, way to many toys and gadgets. Jus my op tho

    #14 76 days ago

    I legit thought the topic was “too many edibles”

    #15 76 days ago

    Step away and put down the Eddie! Too much of a good thing.

    #16 76 days ago

    Needs one more...

    Too many. Looks like a dollhouse.

    #18 76 days ago

    The problem is they are smacked in like sitting dolls
    Try cutting the legs off, and mount them firm.

    Here i cut off barbossa to his waist.
    With sitting streched out legs it looked weird

    Throw in a Vic Rattlehead just to see if anyone notices.

    #20 75 days ago

    Promise me that if you sell, Fast Eddie will deliver this pin.

    #21 75 days ago

    Normally try not to comment but since you asked that looks terrible. It's a pinball machine not a doll house.
    Plus you've added many spots where you could get balls stuck.... if you actually play it.

    #22 75 days ago

    Well, the prob is when you get gifts from friends and family. Try to appease them all. Mitch I do play my games and do the work myself too. Do you? Lots of haters haha

    #23 75 days ago

    Of course I fix and play all my own just dont turn them into doll houses.
    I also host league nights and tournaments.

    Any serious tournament player wouldn't even want to play your iron maiden as the risk of ball hang ups is huge.

    If you didnt want comments you shouldnt have opened up a thread asking for opinions.

    Also maybe stop trying to appease everyone and make your own decisions. Just cause someone buys you a useless gift doesn't mean you have to jam them into a pinball machine.

    Put them ontop of the head or maybe build a shelf?

    #24 75 days ago

    I think you've passed maximum Eddie occupancy... maybe rotate them in and out, depending on which relatives/friends are visiting?

    You could put them on top and make a custom topper but I think that’s too many for the play field IMO.

    #26 75 days ago

    U havin a bad day mitch?

    #27 75 days ago

    So in saner times I would have said yeah, way too many Eddies!

    Normally I kind of hate action figures and off-the-shelf toys on games, the hotwheels cars that come from the factory drives me nuts...

    But since my IMDN LE came with cheezy Eddie figures already I kind of did the best I could and went with it.

    But I'm totally done now, I promise!

    ...and yeah, additional ball hangups are an issue. I'm planning on adding some clear lexan strategically to keep the balls from handing up on Trooper Eddie and might just cut The Beast's one foot a little shorter for the same reason.

    #28 75 days ago

    They look cool to me. Do what you want!! You can never have to many!!

    #29 75 days ago

    I've never had a hang up issue and still play game 5 to 10 times daily. Best game I've ever played. Totally agree, the plastics are cheesy!! I have a acdc pro I'm in process of getting rid of plastics, waiting on a few guitars and locomotive.

    #30 75 days ago

    Fytr, I dig yr devil and way you have piece of mind positioned. Gonna go change mine right now!!

    #31 75 days ago

    Horrendous !

    #32 75 days ago

    A grown man playing with dolls. To each their own I guess.

    You’re making the Star Wars owners look somewhat sensible! But seriously, if you like it that’s all that matters.

    That’s a good one considering the whole game is based on a cheesy comic book.

    Cmon. That obviously goes in my metallica

    #39 75 days ago

    Odd tho, that you just happen to have one on hand

    #40 74 days ago

    too many and way too big.

    #41 74 days ago

    I like the eddies, dont want to get to cluttered but you make your game how you want it

    #42 74 days ago

    At some point of course it is too many eddies but that train has left the station. I see a bunch of spots that are bare and begging for an eddy of their own !

    big eddies , small eddies , get out the goop!!!!

    #44 74 days ago

    I think smaller dolls, with bigger heads is what it needs

    #45 74 days ago

    yes it needs a big head eddy as well the whole setup is lacking an eddy bobble head

    #46 74 days ago

    Make sure to put some of the dolls over the speakers...it could only help.

    #47 74 days ago

    I guess you need to replace those figures with ones with better quality, and try to be selective and keep some consistency.... Similar size, similar quality... etc etc, just dont throw figures random and think is going to be ok... honor iron maiden and the machine if you like them/it.
