Mustang. I'm not a Ford guy, but the pin is awesome.

I'll second (or fourth or fifth) Congo. Also, Hollywood Heat, although an "80s cheese" theme like that could have been really great if executed a bit better (i.e. poor backglass...).

Quoted from Pinballgeek:

Quoted from oldskool1969:

Better add Dr Who to the list also.

Y'all be trippin. Awesome theme. Awesome game.

Last Action Hero:
I've heard most ppl disrespect the movie
and the Ahnold bighead translite scares them silly
vs
lots of modes to shoot for with good flow
and a challenging crane to load up
and various multiballs

Quoted from branlon8:

Can someone pleeease define "crappy theme" ?
Ok, I kind of get it if it was based on a movie or tv show which flopped, but tv shows like Baywatch were anything but a flop I think.
Or is crappy theme 100% opinion only ?
Giving a few reasons why somebody considers a theme crappy would be helpful.

I suppose a crappy theme is opinion only. For example oldskool1969 has said above Star Trek and Iron Man are crappy themes, where others love them.

I would define a crappy theme as follows: A critically unsuccessful, obscure or unpopular tv show or movie. In the realm of unlicensed themes, I would define it as a particularly obscure, unpopular or unusual theme.

Bad Girls for me is like the worst theme but the game is sweet. I'm thinking about getting one and just mildly re-theming it to a pool table based theme.

Thanks. I'll check out both Rollergames and Bad Girls. Cheers

Quoted from PinSinner:

I have played both and enjoyed them. I know you're not a scifi fan, but I quite like the theme of those two.

Exactly great to play but the theme sucks for me.

Well it is a fun game if you don't aim for points though because shooting the sonic boom ramps to gain the most points can be a chore. However, that can be said about most pins
