I liked it!

Hmmmm....I like it...just not sure the bulbs line up right. Is it as noticeable in person?

Thanks for posting the pics and video Tim! Looks really good in the game!

Alternative translites are never going to match up with the original bulb layout. However, it generally isn't a problem with the translites made by Retro Refurbs because the material used has a way of evenly distributing the light. This can be made even better by using frosted LED's.

You could also use Comet 3smd strip Matrix lights to reposition the lighting as needed. I have done this previously with the Aurich translite for The Shadow.

Once I replenish my pinball money I hope to get your translite for my JP. I got sidetracked on a Getaway. My son loves our JP. He is only 4 and just getting in to pinball but loves dinosaurs.

Still got a few of these left and the website posted above where you can buy them are now running a discount coupon for Pinside members, just use 5PINSIDE at the checkout.

Also, I am now working on an alternative artwork cabinet decal set to go with this translite. I think the standard black cabinet with the JP logo could do with a big improvement.

Did these just go up in price? I'd swear they were $78 last time I looked, now they're over $91. I wouldn't expect the USD:GBP to change THAT much in a few weeks...

Not as far as I know. $78 would be £62 british pounds, they've never been that low. Perhaps you looked at them in a different currency?

Still cheaper than other retailers and then with the Pinside coupon they should be $86 USD.

any other titles in mind ? Bram Stokers Dracula...

Yeah I could have fat fingered something or maybe my vpn was showing me in Kazakhstan or something so the currency was jacked up and I didn't notice.
Not complaining about the price just confirming that I'm loosing my mind.

I would be in on a BSD translite

#64 2 years ago

I've started making a BSD translite, but I'm not totally happy with it. Maybe I can get that finished soon though.

I just got another comment on how ugly the Dracula translite is, so for now I'm running a Frankula.

Just having some fun.
I have a friend that always comments on how ugly Dracula is, so I added Franken Berry when she went to use the bathroom.
We had a good laugh when she noticed the switch.

"Blocked" means: somehow, someday PPS was involved. Same story.
