I own 5!

Here is where I am right now, some of these are untouchable, some of them we'll see:

Flash Gordon - I am a gaint Flash Gordon fan, and I love this game, never leaving.
STTNG - I am a giant STTNG fan, and I love this game, never leaving.
SWDE - This was my high school pinball, it is my favorite, never leaving.
BM66 - I like this game and theme a lot, and my family likes more than the others by far, but it could go one day.
Hobbit - I literally just ordered this, we'll see what happens.

I like having the diversity of 90s Williams, Data East, modern Stern, JJp, and classic Bally.

Nice list!

#414 2 years ago

For me it would be

Metallica Pro
Game of Thrones Pro
Monster Bash
Theater of Magic
Lord of the Rings

Honestly I haven't played enough games on many machines to even answer this question, but this is where I'm at right now.

#415 2 years ago

Nice versions.

Roadshow
Judge Dredd
White Water
AC/DC
Tales From the Crypt

Maybe Alien in for Walking Dead. I really liked the artwork and graphics and just the theme in general. Expand the list out to 10 I would include TZ, AF, Walking Dead, Shadow.

#423 2 years ago

Seems like a lot of people’s lists are the 5 most recent pins made last year. Personally there are a lot of classics I like and have not bought into the new flashy machines are the best machines ever made. Just my 2 cents...

MM
TZ
WOZ
RS
TS

#424 2 years ago

Theater of Magic
Ghostbusters pro
Metallica pro
Total Nuclear Annihilation
Star Trek LE

Quoted from rai:

Woz RR
TWD pro
Tspp
Met pro
AcDc premium

Since this time I’ve added DI LE and AFM LE. These demand to be on my list. I don’t say that because they are my newest pins, but honestly believe they are two of the best pins ever made.

I’m going to have to force them in not easy but have to cut Tspp and acdc

I honestly have a hard time picking between my 4 Borg pins Tron/IM/Met and TWD pro. I feel like just one should be on the list but can’t decide and really can include two.

So my revised list

AFM LE
Woz RR
DI LE
Met pro
TWD pro

(Think SM or AcDc premium should be up there but think TWD pro is better with the revised speech/music mod).

#428 2 years ago

Twilight Zone
The Shadow
White Water
Attack From Mars
Eight Ball Deluxe 84

*subject to change

#429 2 years ago

The Hobbit
TRON LE
MMr
MBr

For sure, the fifth I have a lot to consider:

JJP pirates
Star Wars Premium
IM
AC/DC
Metallica
Dialed In

#430 2 years ago
#431 2 years ago

I would try to go with machines that played very differently from different eras.

System 11: Pinbot
90s DMD: Star Trek TNG
90s DMD: Attack From Mars (Remake)
Modern Stern with Video: Deadpool
Modern Other Manufacturer: The Hobbit

I believe these would all play very differently and be a whole lot of fun!

#432 2 years ago

Afm
Bsd
Twd
Bk2k
Cftbl

#433 2 years ago

Would have to go with:

TNA
El Dorado
Iron Maiden Premium/LE
Game of Thrones pro
Wizard of Oz

#434 2 years ago

Now what I have -

SM
SW
GOTG
IMDN
MET

Could easily add Centaur or EBD and MM or AFM in there somewhere with no disappointments.

Added 21 months ago:

Here are the 5 machines I own and my motives to buy / keep them:

Black Hole - bought it in the 80s, this is my "classic"
Attack from Mars - our guests darling
Hobbit LE - my favorite, unreached immersive experience
AC/DC premium vault - good mood party flipper, great lightshow
Alien LE - challenging high tech rarity

#448 2 years ago

Gun to my head?
-Creature From The Black Lagoon
-Paragon
-METLE
