    I saw those, pricey but nice.

    Wish they had a comet playfield as I need one.

    I guess I should feel lucky getting my slightly used Phoenix playfield for a whole $20 including shipping. I am still being lazy not putting it in even though the one in there now is a POS and worn to heck and back.

    I looked all over for you maldoror but nobody anywhere has a comet playfield. I only found a couple of the machines for sale even.

    I have a line on a Funhouse, but I don't know how the playfield is right now or if it's the Diamond Plate version. If the playfield is beat, I'd like to replace it when I get the machine, but that's going to nearly double the cost of the machine if I do so.

    If you ever do come across a comet playfield BD pls keep me in mind. I have one with a horribly worn playfield but I love the table.

    I saw this ad when searching for comet. Alot of cheap machines including that one for sale if you live near or want to travel to Lexington Kentucky. Even a PinBot for a great price. It would be a six hour drive each way for me. I'm almost tempted though to get that PinBot. I have no idea what a Comet #2 is.

    Looks like Woflman Jr. or something...

    I am sure he would budge a little on the prices, but Ky is a bit far for me. =) I work Colorado, New Mexico, Utah, Wyoming and sometimes Az for pins since they are not too bad of drives.

    I didn't expect you'd make the trip maldoror .. but with the machines listed and the prices I wanted to pass it along to anyone who might be looking for that last minute present for themselves.

    Oh man had me going for a second. Can't find a local machine myself. May have to buy a playfield for the wall if they have a batch. Should need it sooner or later.

    Umm, no they don't. They have been out of these for a while and the endless loop of "another run is coming" has been heard for years.

    It's all a matter of personal preference - I don't like the wood grain of IPB nor the lines around inserts from CPR. Mirco usually has some dust. So I get additional clear on all my pfs

    Does anyone have any FACTS on if IPB will be making more? DoigPiranha seems to have posted the "closest to source" comment. Anyone have any additional facts to support/contradict?

    I have called numerous times in the last few years. Once they even told me that they were finishing the test print. Nothing ever materialized. Probably won't ever happen.

    Agreed. I've spoken to Kim there a few times and I've heard "almost done" and "running them in the next few months" and everything else for a long long time.

    Maybe they will shock us and suddenly drop a thousand of them on the market that they have been secretly building up, but I'm not holding my breath.

    A pleasant surprise would be nice though.

    I heard that Paramount no longer had the license so any repro now is unlikely as it would require a whole new licensing deal with all parties - this may be incorrect information but is what I was told a few months back.

    That would actually be good news. This would allow Rick at PPS to possibly get the license and actually get something made. Anything coming from IPB is a crapshoot.

    Facts, TAF repro playfields are NOT happening.

    Over 26 months and counting where I have had numerous conversations with IPB both in person, on email, and over the phone and the template reply is that the are coming soon/next month/ off to the silscreener/ make up any BS you want...

    Plain and simple they are never happening. The best thing that could happen for TAF owners is if IPB gets their legal troubles taken care of and is forced to sell the ability to remake pfs to someone that can get teh job done right.

    Even IF IPB managed to someday remake them, trust me that the quality would likely not be worth buying. Have you seen the most recent pfs they have made??? not worth the price and the colors are wrong and the registration is off (which is odd since the last ones were direct print I think).

    I only did two playfields for this guy and neither were straight clears.
    IJ rework

    BSD rework(had to have an insert decal made after he botched the mylar pull)

    http://christopherhutchins.com/gallery/album278

    Both tough jobs that took a lot of time and effort when I had much better things to do.

    I would never deal with him again as a result of these comments..No good deed..........

    You know this is really interesting - I did not set out to bash your work - as a matter of fact I hold it to be the best there is. I just couldn't afford to pay those prices for all my playfields. My local guy can't do what you do as the master - I just accept the quality I get for the price. As a matter of fact - I chose you over everyone else, because I knew the great job you do. I still have the BSD and brag about it all the time - it is the only work of yours I could afford to keep since I could never swing sending a full game.

    Sorry if it came off the wrong way - it was not my intention - I still will say you are the best in the business. Surprised to see this turn this way.

    I have a used one that has been professionally touched up and clearcoated by NEO. I will likely sell it because I no longer have time to restore the game. This playfield is absolutely gorgeous. If interested, send me a private email and I will shoot you photos this weekend.

    on the IPB playfield, is it normal for the left outlane switch cut outs not to be centered?
    also, on PF's like this, are the mounting holes already drilled for the underside components?

    It's normal for even the factory original B/W playfields to not be centered sometimes.
