Quoted from dothedoo:

Sign o’ the times.

Needlessly adding hot neon/led coloring where it's not needed? Too true

As I said, I'm all for them making it and good luck. You come here with an OBVIOUS hot button topic that everyone knows is going to stir up some shit. I half assume CPR did this to drum up a bit of press, if not, I don't see how you wouldn't see it coming.

Quoted from newtoit:

Some rude assholes on this thread "ill go balls deep" how about just shut your mouth. Sick of you sour losers.

Man, sometimes we all have to step back and judge or own negativity from afar. I thought it was blasphemous that someone would like (angrily like might I add) the color this much but hey, I can admit when I'm wrong. I showed the boys this thread and they actually liked it a lot.
So long story long, we're doing the conversions ourself, and the Centaurs are lined up for this one kids!

When I want to know how they do shit in Canadia, I'll sent you a telegraph!

I did a ton of research into the looks of these characters - did you?

Did you ask Paul Faris what colour he thought it was?

honestly, that would be something I would buy and do a swap with.

If Paul was the one that colorized this, then it would be pretty awesome!

Would be great to have the full package (pf, backglass, and plastics) all done as a cohesive set also.

As it sits, this is a cool wall hanger but not something I see being for actual pf use.

Quoted from yancy:

Just assumed it was one of the staff artists.

I don’t see how that assumption would justify your perspective.

#108 4 months ago

I am actually blown away at how awesome it looks in color. I think the green looks great too. Its weird because I love the green on the playfield but not so much on the backglass. If I was restoring a centaur though, I just don't know what way I'd go. I think I'm still leaning toward the black and white original, but I still think the color looks great.

It does not. My perspective is perfectly valid regardless of who colorized it. I don't need to justify it to you or anyone. I only mentioned that I didn't know who it was because Aurich made it sound like I was going after Kevin in particular.

Appreciate the effort, not to my taste.

#111 4 months ago

Did not like at first..but now i think it looks ok.

I showed this to my brother and his immediate reaction was, “You would think that that’s the way the Centaur II would have been made. So after further conversation we’re thinking Centaur in black & white and Centaur II in color - side by side. Boom, perfect solution.

#114 4 months ago

I don't hate it... I kind of actually like the playfield. I just could never bring myself to put it on... With that said I don't own a centaur so I'm not their target market... not a fan of the backglass though.

#115 4 months ago

like the bw playfields on munsters premium that were so dull and sales flat that they went back to color.
theres an ass for every seat. i like that its different. good job.

btw bare playfields never look good imho. would love to see it loaded and in a game.

who will be the first to do the conversion.

Had to check the date that the thread was started. Oh my.

Awesome artist hat.

#119 3 months ago

There's not enough color in it IMO. It's still got too much black & white.

Quoted from Whysnow:

Without disclosing my initial opinions on Centaur-C, I will say I think seeing one, populated and installed in a cab, original or II, would really "Gottlieb Type C Switch"* the case.

*make/break. heh. get it?
(uffda, should prob down-vote myself for that one hey)
