    After seeing the new avengers with the gravity target stern Is calling a vari target I was thinking where are the super fun real vari targets That lawler uses in games like safe cracker and rbion,I Really wish somebody would include one soon.Mabey I am mistaken but other than spookys last few games Alice Cooper and Morty I Have played them all and don’t see any.Why?

    I always thought the vari target in Ripleys didn't play too well. With the weaker flippers and slower play on EMs, vari targets sorta make sense, but on a modern Stern I'd hit the target, and it wasn't clear why my ball was pushed back or not, how much progress was left, etc.

    Plus, why would you want a mech in your game that just takes all the momentum away from the ball? They're like sand pits for pinball. The gravity target is a good mix on that since once your ball drops you get all the speed back instead of it just being eaten by the target

    Disagree, always loved that on rbion. Have owned 3 rbions and never once felt it was random in why it was pushed back.
