I hear you, I tend to like specific designers as well. Lawlor made a few designs for Stern but I don't think any of them were classic. I guess he's making a Jersey Jack table, maybe given a decent budget he can shine again? I love some Addams Family and Funhouse, and see Lawlor as the quintessential pinball gadget guy, but his games aren't my favorite to play. Star Trek is a Steve Ritchie design. I love his games - had a Rollergames, but he is also responsible for TNG/High Speed/Flash/High Speed II/F14/Terminator 2 among others. I'm down with his designs and find them pretty fun even if they can be pretty samey - they're fast and the shots flow well. If I had the cash, I'd love a premium modern Trek table. And Star Trek TNG. And pretty much anything else by Mr. Ritchie. MM guy - yeah, he just sort of disappeared.
