Hi team. New to this forum and hoping to get some help. When right flipper is triggered or held there is a buzzing sounds coming from it. Any fixes? I tried doing a minor adjustment to EOS switch and it helped a little but still happening. Thinking not specific to Spidey but any help appreciated. Thanks! Mike

Check the coil stop to see if is faulty.

Hi, I'm looking for the playfield plastic scan 13, 18, 20, 22.

Cheers

Hello friendly neighborhood pinsiders! So dealing with an inconsistent Sandman VUK. Sometimes it ejects ball properly into the pops and sometimes it fails to come out on first attempt, other times it is weakly ejected into right ramp. Not a huge deal but just want to get it right. Any experience or tips appreciated!

Yes. In fact, I’m looking up where you live to find the local op in order to poach the deal out from under you. Make your move fast.

I bought one last year in similar condition and PBL had most of the parts I needed. In addition to the broken plastics and ramps you are missing the Doc Ock figure.

Yeah, in this maket almost any DMD era game in working condition is worth at least $3K so if you don't mind the work buy it and have fun fixing it up. I used to be able to buy re-import games in this kind of condition and really enjoyed the whole process but those days are pretty much gone. The Doc Ock figure might be the hardest thing to replace, don't know for sure though.

#2066 32 days ago

I got my Spider-Man! Even in its semi-blown out state I am surprised how well it plays.

For some reason its missing a lot of post rubbers, and even the upper flipper rubber, so the ball will just stop dead, and the plastic guide for a vuk is missing causing the ball to comically launch into the air and his the side of the cab, but still lots of fun.

Ive taken to just playing with the glass off and deflecting the ball with my hand. The ramps are so addicting, they are all I want to shoot regardless of modes.

Even after just a quick naptha wipe down the playfield looks better than I thought. I was going to buy a nos one, but I think this one will clean up nicely. I even found Doc chilling in the bottom of the cabinet.

I am shocked at plastic set prices though, seems much higher than the sets Ive purchased for Williams games. I am guessing the license makes reproductions less likely so we are limited to nos sets?

Never thought a set would be as expensive as a color dmd

Shouldnt complain, in this market I think/hope I made out ok for only 3k

ps Look how toasty my backboard decal is

Yeah, Stern plastic sets are ridiculously priced but at least still available if you want to look at it that way.

#2069 31 days ago

Yeah I managed to get a partial set cheaper, and the Sandman plastic individually to save a few bucks.

Has anyone mentioned if the Vault Edition ramps work in the original? Not a lot of luck searching the thread.

They look similar enough in the manuals, but part numbers are off by 1.

What’s wrong with the ramps? Broken or just fugly?

Yes it’s a great game. Love mine

Mine are shot, chips in all the spots that attach to the playfield, flap on one rivet, corners of entrances missing. Still functional, but I want to polish my game back into a gem.

To that effect I thought I might try my hand at custom plastics, because Toby and Kirsten dont really do it for me.

This was a real quick photo chop job, honest opinions appreciated.

When I acquired Spidey it had the back alley buildings and subway and I just feel the playfield is way too crowded with them in. But very nice stuff. Buildings look great and I thought about selling the set.

Then I decided to make a topper. I’m either going to light up these buildings with GI and tie some controlled lights into the white arrows on the playfield (and paint wood black)…or I’ll just sell this set.

What do you guys think as a topper?

Or does anyone want to buy this set to use in their game? Pm me if so

My opinion - sell them. They don’t work well as a topper. It’s not eye-catching enough.

Other opinions may vary.

Yeah I would sell them. I don’t particularly like them due to size on the PF, “BUT” back alley did a very nice quality job with them and I have friends who really liked them on their SM. Let them go to someone who will enjoy them

I agree! They Are very nice quality.

If anyone here is looking to purchase the set - give me a holla!!!!

Flippers rebuilt, got he webslinger brackets from the vault edition on my Sandman and Doc VUKS so now I can play with the glass on! Cant believe I slept on this game, its incredible.

I have a new playfield, and a box full of ramps ready for when I can find the time.

But what a shame pinbits is no longer in business, there protectors are so cool looking. Dont suppose anyone else is making them?

Why a new PF? The can be a problem Doc Ock magnet area didn’t seem to have any wear?

I’d buy a set. Big improvement imo.

Its probably unnecessary, mine has some ghosting inserts and a couple other things to nitpick, the shooter lane especially. There was a good deal for a NOS one here so I jumped.

I figure I am going to pull it all apart, rehab the cab, run everything through an ultrasonic cleaner and tumbler, give it the full restoration treatment, why not put it all on a new playfield.

Ah giving SM “the full treatment” huh? It will be sweet looking. Hope it goes well

Place the buildings so there is no gap between them, find some Spidey and villain micro figures that are the same scale, have Spidey fighting Doc on top of the subway, add strip lighting from comet to tie into your GI. It will look awesome. Or put everything back under the glass and it will also look awesome. I had mine out for a while and while I agree that it made everything feel cramped I liked how you couldn’t see the ball coming down the wire forms

#2084 16 days ago

Haven’t been in here for awhile so thought I’d include some pics. Added Comet strip lights under the subway and in one of the buildings.
Green Comet bulb in the spotlight on Gobby.
Still searching for Doc and Gobby Funkos for my topper, which is also lit with Comet strip.

So I added Color DMD LED yesterday, and I have to say I’m a little underwhelmed. I also added LED to my T2 and DE Batman yesterday, and the results were game-changing.
I’m wondering if I should’ve gone with the LCD instead?
Mainly I’m disappointed in how muddy the animations are. The still images are fine and certainly what I expected, but with some of the animations…if I hadn’t seen them on the original DMD beforehand, I would never even know what I’m looking at. I understand that there is only so much that can be done with the original dot animations, but I think because they move so fast they don’t seem to translate very well to colorization. I’ve tinkered with the contrast and brightness but that’s really not the issue.
With T2 and Batman, I said “Wow!”, and with Spidey I was like “Ehh…”
If anyone in the Spider-verse has the LCD version I’d greatly appreciate your input. Thanks!

I feel like this has been discussed so many times both here and in the LED vs LCD ColorDMD thread but also understand it's hard to find relevant responses in such large threads. I posted YouTube video comparisons of the LCD in various modes and a couple with the LED. I can only say that if you think either version looks worse than the OG Plasma display you should keep trying different settings as I think either are a huge improvement even on the video sequences. The LED is better for color reproduction, especially deep red, but otherwise I think it comes down to personal preferance. The video sequences in this game must have been so horribly compressed / downconverted though because some still just look like WTF is that even supposed to be?!?!
