Pretty surprised at all the TOTAN love.. great looking but I owned one for years and never could get into it gameplay wise.

I always liked the tougher shorter games like BSD and Iron Man

If going just for looks and theme then BOP

jeeze, no EM love at all? Not a two inch flipper game to be found. no mention of NORTH STAR or AZTEC or FLIPPER CLOWN or OLD CHICAGO?
 I think this group is biased. DING DONG or DODDLEBUG? GRANADA?
 you are all allowed your own opinions but jeeze louise.
 But then I wouldnt go out of my way for a ADAMS FAMILY which has a cute attract mode but plays dumb as hell. Most overrated of all time for that one IMO.  :-\
 
Current Pins and Stuff: Fire!, Walking Dead "kill them walkers, yeah ", Hurdy Gurdy, Batter Up, Flipper Pool, North Star, Ice Revue, King of Diamonds,  Flipper Clown, Bow & Arrow, Old Chicago, and the one and only, the totally awesome and historic,"CANDY APPLE" RED Astro, which I'll trade for a "Kings & Queens".    
 Bally 873 slot machine
 Rowe "Encore" Jukebox.
Games come thru here all the time!
Past Pins: way too many to list. plus a couple of vids, slots, firearms and assorted other stuff.
 WTB: A decent KINGS & QUEENS with a GOOD playfield.
