Nominations for the best pinball ?Set?

That is, more than one game with the same (Licensed) theme

Eg Elvira and the Party Monsters / Scared Stiff
Star Trek (Bally 1979) / Star Trek (Data East 1991) / Star Trek, the Next Generation (Williams 1993)



I will post the poll in a few days

Hard to say what is the best one, there are quite a few.
Do both games have to be good or are you going on the best theme itself?
'Cause some games in a theme suck but the follow ups are great or vice versa.

Simpsons
Playboy
Attack/Revenge from Mars
Comet, Cyclone, Hurricane
Star Trek
Star Wars
Jurassic Park
Paragon/Lost World
Harley Davidson
Elvira

Probably heaps more.

I forgive you Pete. Put them side by side, and you wont see a cooler pair of classic pinballs. They just compliment each other.

Got me confused,

Is this thread for the best set of boobs on a pin?

If not, why not?

If they are pinball related, why not start your own poll 'Hottest babe on a pinball machine'?

For me, that is why I start these polls
I hope that other members might nominate a game that I have not heard of

Hopefully, it gets people thinking about pinball machines other than the Bally/Williams DMD?s

What a dope for forgetting these.....

Walked into my gamesroom about 2 minutes ago and looked up and Bally Captain Fantastic and Wizard are sitting there side by side.

I know that these 2 won't get voted in on the poll but WOW what a pair both spinning off the rock opera Tommy from 1975

AWESOME Dave Christensen art, just screams 1970s :cool:
