Funny topic as I really can only own 5 Pins in my collection

I would say:

- JP Premium
- A13 (I'm an absolute spacenerd)
- BSD (for hard but fun shorter games)
Those 3 i actually own.

I would like to add:
- Shadow
- GOTG

I doubt I will ever have room for 5 but if I did....

POTC JJP
P3
TNA
Banzai Run
A newer stern (TMNT, AIQ) a flavor of the month to trade out periodically type spot.

No updates to lists with GnR?

#655 1 year ago

IJ Williams - great theme integration
MM - plain fun
MB - easily accessible with good mini modes and multiballs
LOTR - good if you feel like a longer, journey game
AFM / Spiderman (need 6 spots, but if limited to 5 it would be one of these two due to similar shot map) - great flow games

How about providing justification for each pin selected?

#670 5 months ago

Fish Tales - two crossover ramps, jackpot requires 2 shots
Cyclone - sentimental favorite
Whitewater - advancing the rafts is so simple, but fun. Insanity falls ramp, one of the best ramps ever.
TAF - love how the magnets mess with your game play, but it is too expensive to own now
STTNG - great flow

#671 5 months ago

TOTAN - nuf said
IJ Pinball Adventire - It’s Indy!
Big Lewboski - it’s the dude… man
Tron - daft punk sopes machine
JJP Pirates - a masterpiece

#672 5 months ago

1. world cup '94, set to a one ball game with the striker extra ball and extra ball round, makes it a challenge to complete. but it's such a good game for pinball newbies. also, it was my first pin and can never leave.

2. spiderman vault. the call outs are cheesy, but the art and dots are better than the original, it's cool to shoot and not so easy to beat.
(2.5) startrek premium, a deeper and better looking spiderman, bar the translight.

3. Indiana Jones, it's like 40yrs since the movie "raiders of the lost ark" first came out.

4. The walking dead pro, if it had dirty donnie art, Metallica wouldn't get a look in, but it doesn't and it only takes #4 from Metallica pro by an onion skin margin.

5. AIQ, it would be this or Jurassic park, but i hate dinosaurs and AIQ is an entire package that is going to take a long time to tire of.

honourable mentions, theatre of magic, still the most beautiful machine ever made. tales of the Arabian nights, second most beautiful machine ever made and data east TMNT, cause it's way more fun than that stinker from stern

#673 5 months ago

Re-Refreshed list

1. Iron Maiden Le
2. Kiss Le
3. Led Zeppelin Le
4. The Mandalorian

5. Open to suggestions

Quoted from MightyGrave:

What i would pick:
- MET Pro
- TWD Pro
- LOTR
- CCC
- MB
What my girlfriend would pick:
- Flintstones
- TAF
- WOZ
- CFTBL
- .......

Today

What i would pick:
- TWD Pro --> Still here and will never leave. Fast, Brutal, Bloodpumping... awesome code.
- GOTG Pro --> Metallica with a more familiar Theme and less woodchopping. A highlight with upgrade Sounds/Music.
- Houdini --> Maybe not 10 game but the code and the atmosphere of this pin is awesome. It's a good shooter and rewards accurate shots with a good feeling.
- GNR LE --> The light show is second to none. The game is other then normal and has a nice and deep code.
- MB or BM66 or TMNT pro --> all are fun and love the themes but still hard to deside which is on the keeper list.

#675 5 months ago

Flintstones? Wondering why?

#680 5 months ago

I think 4 can be whatever, but 1 needs to be R&M.

#681 5 months ago

The new list would be EHoH , AfMr LE , ST LE , Munsters , & TAF . I have 3 of the 5 plus a ST pro . Only missing Elvira .

#682 5 months ago

Choosing 5 pins to capture your attention and reflect your pinball tastes is tuff. Paying $61k for them is a big commitment too.

AFMLE - best Bally/Williams was made even better by CGC. Strobe multiball, mothership video mode, 5-shot combo insert (encouraging combos since 1995), solid dialog and humor, scoring in XX billion point range - $9k.

JJPOTCLE - best adventure game ever - infinite combinations. Eric Menier design rarely found on location - $25k

JJPGNRLE - best pin ever made. Eric Menier design. - $11k

MET prem - best Stern dmd. Great toys - Sparky bash toy, moving hammer, newton ball coffin lock, ball swallowing snake lock and white cross rising from the grave. Dirty Donnie art. Lots of cool game mods available - $8k

JP2 - Keith Elwin design and my fave mega-theme. Community ROM with “real” movie assets create new level of integration - $8k

Two game types I see lacking from my selections are a fast / brutal game and a quirky game that somehow feels different. Adding them to round out the package would increase costs to $73k.

IM - Iron Man is fast and unforgiving - $6k

DP pro - I love the zigzag ramp, snikt multiplier target, Zombie Yeti art. New display graphics were created. Humor. - $6k

#683 5 months ago

Lord of the Rings(got mine last month!)
The Hobbit
Total Nuclear Annihilation(hopefully soon)
Led Zeppelin
Medieval Madness

#684 5 months ago
Quoted from Gorgar666:

Monster Bash, Jurassic Park, Iron Maiden, The Shadow, Bram Stoker’s Dracula.

Dammm... you like hard machines, TS + BSD + MAIDEN...

#685 5 months ago

Maiden - the overall GOAT
Zeppelin - most fun and re-playable GOAT
Cheetah - fastest widebody GOAT
Dialed In - most loaded GOAT that doesn't suck
Star Gazer - prettiest 3X spinner ripping GOAT

#686 5 months ago

Comet ('85 Williams)
Cyclone ('86 Williams)
Monday Night Football ('89 DE)
Star Wars ('92 DE)
Star Trek ('79 Bally)

Currently own the Cyclone, looking for the others.

[quoted image]

If you’re gonna get a Spooky you should make it ACNC. Great game and it goes well with Maiden and GNR.

#694 5 months ago

Depends on budget.

My "top 5/won't leave" is:

Lord of the Rings
Indiana Jones the Pinball Adventure (#TheGoodOne)
Indianapolis 500
Roadshow
Star Trek the Next Generation

Bonus: Strikes n Spares, but it'll be on location. Love the game, just no room at home.

Game of Thrones LE
Spanish Eyes
