More modern toy versions of the real thing - based on a rotary merchandiser and a crane.

Stunning work, I came across one of these when I visited San Francisco at the Musee Mechanique Museum on Pier 45.

If you ever get the chance to visit this stunning city you have to make a trip to this museum, it is free and a lot of fun. Amazing array of slots, working models etc. I know PennyMachines posted a few links to Youtube Videos of the stuff on display. They appear to have updated their website and have included a lot of stills of the machines now:
