Here are the top 10 machines on my list, I love EM's but don't currently own one. I was playing pinnies during the cross over to SS and remember them appearing in the parlours and find them similar to EM playfields and rule sets but reliable once I put Pascal boards in them. I have run out of room so it looks like I will need to swap out from here if I find a machine I want more than the ones I have.


Close encounters
Countdown
Jetspin
Spirit of 76
Strikes & Spares - Currently Own
Charlies Angels - Currently Own
Golden Arrow
Centigrade 37
Sinbad - Currently Own
Cleopatra - Currently Own

Cheers: Brettski... :)

I don't own any of these so it is just a 'maybe, one day' list for me.

Firepower - rewrote the rules of pinball play. Multiball, the outlane kicker and moving F-I-R-E with the flipper button, all in one game
ProFootball - even at 10c a game at the local arcade, I probably spent enough to buy a house
Kiss - the best balance of features I think I have ever seen, drop targets, bounce targets, the K-I-S-S matrix in the middle
Close Encounters - The first time I saw a roto target
Spiderman (1980) - How did they fit so much variety in one playfield
Target Alpha / Solar City- the drop target lovers dream machine
Meteor - The drop targets reset, then they dropped down again, magic
Hercules - The sheer novelty of playing something that big
Black Knight - If only I was coordinated enough to use the second set of flipper buttons for the magnetic capture thingy
Anything by Ed Krynski - so much imagination

Great thread

Took me 10-15 years to track down Fathom -Then I found 4 !
Mermaid will be VERY expensive.
Fireball took me 15 years - VERY hard to source now.
Atlantis - I'd love one as well. Almost had 2 our of a spotter in Europe for peanuts !
