    Wow. If both modes didn't flat out suck, I'd buy them.

    How come the slots machine is only shown in one mode?

    And the set needs Reflector or Armada Lazerbeak underneath a tinted glass dome to make sure that nobody tries any funny business.

    The slot machine's transformation involves pushing the legs in a bit, flipping his arms and head in, and standing him there. That was it.

    There was a fourth one of these - a black one that had a minature die inside him. I had all four back in the 80s, the pinball machine was the best and most functional of the bunch.

    I think these guys were out in the eighties under the "Convertors" brand, along with a mess of other unusual and interesing things.

    Heh, their headquarters must be in Atlantic City, NJ where they prey on unsuspecting senior citizens and Japanese tourists; robbing them of fanny packs and over sized panoramic sunglasses.

    I used to have the pinball bot. Actually, I probably still have it somewhere in one piece. I haven't seen it in a very long time, though.

    I should get those since my town has turned into a wanabe mini-vegas. We have dozens of slots parlors (they can only have a few machines each) and the state legislature passed a table gaming bill so they can have other types of gambling like blackjack and roulette.

    Well, maybe I'll let you buy them from me if I don't like 'em. I won the lot for $1, plus $6 shipping- the same price as a minicon pack. I'll resurrect this thread and do a brief review when I receive them.

    Yeah, I had the pinball one when I was young, but not sure why, as even then I thought it was pretty goofy.
