Put IMHO after each of these:
Best toy since flipper period is the slingshot
Best old school toy (early SS) was the physical multi-ball lock on FP
Best Star Wars effect (you had to play it back then to get it) was Pinbot Visor
Best match to Theme is Thing Hand or JP TREX
Worst match to Theme was Stern Batman crane (I love it but saw the movie wtf)
Best toy progression and not just a bash toy was the MM Castle from moat to gate to exploding
Best toy progression from upper flipper was Rudy. He is special because you have to hit a shot to get a chance at him.
Best WTF is the Dark Knight crane. I love that toy but saw the movie and don't get it. Had to mention twice.
Best LE feature that people creme over is the TRON lighted ramp.
