Cops and robbers was my first ever machine around 15 years back. Good machine to be fair I can't really fault it.

Beer guide also a good machine, at 100 fully working you can't go wrong. Video here showing showing the game play of the one in Reelfruits https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=HlcCwj7C0yw

Theres a maygay money money money on ebay at the moment for 65. Can't believe it hasn't been sold yet :O I already own one and find it a entertaining machine. Somehow for reasons I'll never understand people seem to buy DOND's instead on ebay over a proper Classic at a fraction of the price :-\ strange world lol

Wow looks like I'll have to start hoarding a few mpu4 boards as spares for my machines. theres a mpu4 board on eBay at 82 so far! Weren't expecting them to start fetching m1 prices, just yet! I got a mod 2 board and game card the other week for 50 delivered from a contact.

It is a shame how expensive this hoobie is starting to get lately. I'm lucky enough to have started collecting around 7 years ago, the most expensive (classic) machine I bought was around 150. Most were around the 100 mark. No way I can afford todays prices on some machines like only fools and horses 300-400, cops n robbers 350+ crazy fruits over 500! Basically now became machines I'll never be able to own. Will be interesting to see what the roller coaster fetches on eBay. Owned one around 12 years ago and paid 90 for it.

Yeah the remake was released in around 2000 I believe. Not quite as good as the original but I enjoyed it still.

A original rear opener roller coaster has just appeared on eBay here http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/JPM-Roller-Coaster-Fruit-Machine-/252137093052?hash=item3ab48ab7bc:g:mhEAAOSw~bFWKTVQ being sold by a license holder too so shouldn't be removed.

Scorp 2 and barcrest machines in my expirence are by far the most reliable. As long as you change the battery every few years you shouldn't really have any issues, touch wood!

The worse has to be m1 teach for me so I'd try and avoid if possible. Spare boards are near impossible to find these days and will set you back 80+ If you're lucky enough to find one.

I'd recommend a mpu4 machine. Pretty reliable and parts are available easily enough should you require a new mpu in future. They tend to sell for around 45 inc delivery at the moment.

Welcome! :) always good to see someone else who has good taste in machines

There's a (remake) roller coaster on ebay at the moment if your quick http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/Classic-Roller-Coaster-Fruit-Machine-Coin-Operated-10p-Per-Play-5-Jackpot-/291596293682?hash=item43e47e5632:g:ToQAAOSw14xWKPrc

As to what machines to buy it comes down to what you played the most back in the day. Being 90s machines there weren't really any bad games like with today's machines. All the ones you listed are really good games. I did own a blue sompsons a long time ago, personally found it a bit boring after awhile though so would avoid it for a home machine. The orginal m1 simpsons on the other hand is amazing. 

A few of my favs for fun home use machines are

Collouses
Crazy fruits
Eastenders
Corronation St
Andy Capp
