Just got my payment request and sent over payment to them today. Getting excited! So glad I waited and didn't use that decal overlay yet.

E-mail stated the first batch is in clear coat right now and estimate shipping is towards the end of July, depending on the clear coat.

Awesome!

Silly question

Has the drop target slot and the 2 kickout saucer holes been done, the last photo shows they have not been cut out.

#106 1 year ago

Hi.

Yes, the drop target, kickout holes and ballthrough hole has been milled.
We do that after printing, for those holes und cut out disturb while printing.

Page 1 first post of the thread you just posted in he answers both questions. I believe they just started shipping.

#122 1 year ago

Hello to all

Yes, we are busy shipping out the Alien Poker playfields.
We have sent out emails to all the folks on the AP list. If you did not receive an email,
then my mail might have landed in your spam folder.

Our preceedur is very easy.
Pre-order. You send an email to my mail address, peter....buthamburg.... with your postal address.
You can also use the email link on our homepages.
I then put you on my pre-order list.
Once the playfield is ready for clearcoating, I send out an email with the request to pay for the playfield via PayPal.
Payment received will activate a Parts Order in your name. Once your Playfield is ready for shipping, you will receive an email from DHL
with your tracking Nr.
If you have question about the status, you are welcome to send me an email with your questions.

We do not rush our work, we are an old school manufacturing company since 2,5 decades and in second gerneration, Family bussiness.
Our playfields are genuine Silkscreen printed, we are not fond of digital printing, we dont want pixel mixed colors, we like the genuine old full and bright colors.
Each color gets printed seperatly, the colors are prerfectly matched. Our Playfields are genuine Hand Craft. If we find an issue,
we repair the issue, even it if means to sand off all and start from the begining again, That is the reason why we have had long delays
in the passed. Now that we are manufacturing all steps of the playfield ourselves, things are speeding up very nicley. We can work in our own pase
to get you a great Playfield. Buthamburg wants you to be happy with your Playfield.

Have a nice day
Regards from Hamburg

We are letting the clear coat rest a coupel of days before we start packing and sending out, some are good and some need a few days,
thats why we decided to wait until Wednesday or Thursday.

Have a nice evening

#126 1 year ago

My Alien Poker playfield just arrived this afternoon. It is BEAUTIFUL! Excellent work guys! And awesome packing job as well!

Is there a standard wait time before most people swap in their new play fields, to give the clear more time to set up/cure? I don't want to get to impatient now....

#127 1 year ago

Pictures or it never happened.

#128 1 year ago

Here here on the pics ! Waiting on mine and very excited about it .

#129 1 year ago

It's going to be a huge transformation. Even though it's already 100% working, this one's been waiting a while for a nice update. Within the last year I've picked up the new backglass and plastics. Now I've just got to get some stencils and this can all get started.

What? The playfield is white?? Mine has always been Marlboro yellow! Excited to get mine soon!

#131 1 year ago

Hello to all

Here you can see how we neatly polish the inserts and give the Playfield a fine finish.
After this step the Playfield Boards will go to the paint devision. They will then be primered.
After the primer is applied (This step we do not show) the playfields will rest for 14 days.

Recieved mine today and it looks great.....cant wait to get this back in the game!

#133 1 year ago

I have a NOS beautiful playfield in mine and the colors aren’t nearly as vibrant as your repros. Grays are much darker and whites are an off white color on mine. Your playfields look absolutely beautiful.

#134 1 year ago

Ya the differences are huge.

Is shipping extra? What are typical shipping rates within the US for playfields?

#147 9 months ago

I believe $30-$40 to ship within the US.

Looking over the playfield... I wish Buthamburg could have changed the order of silkscreens.
I would love to see what the playfield would have looked like if the aquamarine blue went on first before
the florescent green. Their are two planets that the details are lost. The blue is too strong of a color
for the green. Maybe Buthamburg could make the green decals for the two planets... Just a thought.
Great playfield overall.

#149 8 months ago

My swap is nearly done. Overall the dimpling on the backside was spot on. There were a few missing topside or some that didn't line up that I didn't use. The clearcoat is great, very happy overall.

My awesome wife surprised me with one of these for my birthday the other day!

It was ordered from PPS, and it was given to me in their original shipping package. I got through all the layers and my heart sank when I realized they accidentally sent me a BOP playfield instead. They were awesome and had a new PF shipped out the day I contacted them about it. Kudos to PPS for a quick resolution. I got the correct AP pf today and it looks great!

I look forward to installing it.

Now that I've got plastics, BG and pf, I'm going to have to seriously consider cabinet restoration.

I'm inclined to think they did the layering correctly per the originals. I can't even see any green coming through the largest planet on my original pf, so I guess it got covered on that one, too.
