    I've been noticing a raft of crappy bumper caps out in the market, from eBay sellers and also some established parts shops. It's like I have to get the seller to take a pic of the exact caps I am to buy.

    Here's an example of one on eBay. Notice for the screw holes are not properly aligned with the star points? I've also noticed this on Bally Playboy caps as well, an item I am looking to get. The NOS ones all seem to be properly manufactured.

    Quoted from Atari_Daze:

    Just do a search in here for that seller, you will find quite a few complaints.

    *Potential crappy seller name immediately comes to mind*

    (clicks ebay link)

    I did the same thing, saw the seller and said, "yep"

    I made my post without even looking at ebay link. Saw link, and knew it was classicarcades.
    His High Speed Translite was complete crap to, then he was beyond difficult to return it.

    I wonder why Steve at pbresource doesn't have the Playboy caps? He has almost all Bally caps.

    He probably doesn't have a license to use the logo.

    I wish the makers of playfields and hardtops would work with the companies that make backglasses/translates, ramps, decals, plastic sets, etc. so that their products would all come out at the same time, not separate releases over months or years. Why can't the license holders coordinate this? Someone asks for a license to make a playfield/hardtop. License holder reaches out to companies that make backglasses/translates, ramps, decals, plastic sets, etc. to see who wants to make the matching components.

    For example CPR obtained a license to make Bally Playboy playfields, backglass and plastics sets. Why didn't the license holder PPS reach out to pbresource and ask him to make the pop bumper caps?
