    Addams Family - motorized bookcase
    Fish Tales - fishing reel rotating ball lock and flapping fish topper.
    AC/DC - interactive bell (it just swings but its satisfying to hit when you hear the sounds and see the animation)
    White Water - Bigfoot diverts ball and head spins.
    Twilight Zone - mini PF with magnet flippers, motorized clock
    Fireball, etc - Zipper flippers
    Bride of Pin*Bot - ball locking rotating face.
    Cue Ball Wizard - motorized working cue stick
    LotR/GOT - sword ball lock
    Water World - tanker ship ball lock
    BSD - mist ball
    TOTAN - Lamp (not motorized but satisfying to spin when you hear the sounds and see the animation)
    Championship Pub - punching bag/boxer

    Mechs don't have to be fancy to be fun, just clever and nicely integrated. But as already mentioned, they take time and money to design and they add to BOM and build time. Only competition will improve things.
