    Quoted from MustangPaul:

    Looks like there's a Black Market for pinball parts now. Who would have thunk.

    Are we going to have to start buying them with bitcoins??

    That's what I kind of thought but I don't know of any other parts.

    Bally, Williams stuff gone from their website again.

    Welcome back $550 decal sets!

    #356 4 months ago

    Retro Refurbs have an excellent product. Surely the license holders can come to reasonable terms to keep these on the market and affordable. It is to their benefit to make these products generally available, they sell more, and it closes the current huge gaping hole in affordable availability in the market, which just provide incentive for folks to try to sell unlicensed versions.

    Meet the demand with an excellent, affordable product. Seems like they are doing so with the new hardtop playfield overlays, why not with retro refurb's side art, etc.?

    #357 4 months ago

    Seems like 500% profit is more of a motivating factor.

    Too bad, RR also covered a lot of lower demand titles that I have a hard time believing the license holders will ever get around to making.

    #358 4 months ago

    Damn. I will be needing a couple of sets of can decals in the next few weeks that are now no longer available.
    Such a shame and inconvenience for all pinball fans.

    #359 4 months ago

    Seems like if you direct emailed Pete maybe you could work something out, I dunno? Or maybe it’s a lost cause.. too bad

    #360 4 months ago

    Well if I can't buy from RR.....I'll find another alternative elsewhere. It may not be available right now....but something will pop up, I can wait.

    Why would I grab my ankles and fork over $500 for decals? LOL....a cabinet isn't that important to me.

    Decals costing over $300 will make it not worth it for all but the most valuable titles....doesnt make sense to spend $550 for stickers on a game worth 3k

    If even the license holders had the products we all need... in STOCK with FAIR prices, btw...

    NOW I get why people horde parts.
    Too many things no longer made, out of stock, lost the licence, dispute with the owner, a few exist but way overpriced..........
    Seems like you gotta get parts when they are available, not necessarily when you need them.

    Parts were not available in years past. This has changed greatly in the last few years. I am fortunate to be working with some of the manufacturers of new replacement parts and I can say things are much better today than in the past. There are quite a few pieces in the works for B/W. Most parts are done on a need basis. If enough people ask about a product it gets sent to the top of the list.Having people make items without approval and quality control is a double-edged sword. Products of lesser quality become readily available and quality products end up never being produced. Be careful what you wish for.

    My Swords Of Fury is coming along nicely with the new decals from RR. 90% cabinet prep / 10% decal application

    Except in this case we already had quality parts available. Just needed the blessing of the IP holders. Besides, the market can decide if it wants to pay substantially more for a "higher quality" product or not, can't it?

    Quoted from Fytr:

    Not every thing was "Quality". I used some of their decals. They scanned existing art and digitally printed it. They expanded the art to cover the cabinet edges. The art was not correct in some games. Party Zone alone cannot be digitally reproduced due to the neons on the art. The set I received was also disproportionate and off-color. Digital reproductions are getting much better but using the original B/W files is a must IMHO. Not scans." A copy of a copy is just a copy"

    What did the licensed Party Zone decals look like? Oh yeah, they'll never be made...

    You nailed it. Too much bullshit

    Quoted from Ericpinballfan:

    Humm, and cheaper shipping and not overpriced.

    I bought decals from Bay Area for my HSII and they are horrible quality. I have bought 3 sets from Retro and they are all amazing quality. I should have demanded my money back from BAA but to much time has passed. Lesson learned. But for others buyers beware when buying cab decals from BAA. Just my 2 cents.

    #375 4 months ago

    Bay Area has had 3 different versions of HS2 decals from different suppliers and different art - PPS has just recently run silkscreened Getaway with the correct florescent colors and this is what BAA and PPS have now. There have in the past been IPB HS2, and PPS Digitally Printed HS2 and now Original WMS Film HS2 which is what is now available.

    I would buy more reproduction parts from you if your website stated who made them and any notes on color differences, etc.

    Quoted from Mancave:

    Is it any wonder pin heads are looking for a cheaper option? IMHO this is ridiculous pricing, more sought after game the bigger the butt hurt also it seems.

    Right. For only $923 USD I can buy these. No money grab there.

    Yeah i did notice that one on his site, but it is only for that machine, the rest are more than within reason. I sure can't explain the huge mark up for BBB though Even considering the very small amount of these machines around that's a "tad" excessive
