have fun. i buy cheap family guy figures off of eBay for gameroom deco...ha.

you should be looking for figures that measure about 4 inches. attach using game hardware, basic tiny brackets you can get at home depot, some silicone will hold fine and clean up 100% if you ever remove said figure, etc...

like this:



adding toys to pinball machines is just like performing burnouts in police station parking lots...leave no evidence behind!

many toys come out with movies. then they get discounted somewhat, and disappear from inventory. hot wheels and star wars are always on the shelf.
