    Which are better or are they the same?

    #2 9 years ago

    Talkin about the complete kits. Sorry

    #3 9 years ago

    I never try from Marcos but i have tried plenty from cointaker and
    they are the best

    #4 9 years ago

    I never tried Marco for LEDs either. But have been pretty impressed with cointaker LEDs. Remember pinsider's get a 10% discount just put in PINSIDE in the coupon code box. Unless Marco is a lot cheaper I would advise you to go with cointaker.

    #5 9 years ago

    Their the same price but I was ordering from Marco right now. Just noticed there out of stock on Marco anyway so Cointaker it is!

    #10 9 years ago

    Where did you get all the extra figures on the playfield? I'm especially interested in the POTD figures...

    #13 9 years ago

    I have orderd from all three, plus another I will never use again, and they all have their pluses. It depends on what kind of LED you want and where you are putting them. The only problem I have had with any are the crazy 555 LEDs from Marco that are 8 (I think) LEDs in one. They will not fit in a bulb board but work well in like a pop bumper or a wide insert opening. Other than that they have all been good.

    Why do those girls have that concerned look on their faces?!?
    Is he packin' "BD style" or what?

    Maybe "Goodbye Horses" is playing in the background..?

    If that's the case, this won't end well... Buffalo Bill is not to be trifled with.

    One more thing... Is this the Sauron that you have on your LOTR pin?

    "Si!"

    Now they just need to bust out the Mouth of Sauron figure and this thing will be golden.

    Marco sells cointaker leds...so they are the same ones but if you buy them from marco you won't be able to get the Pinside discount at Cointaker.com

    I think the Pinballlife ones are different. They look different and they offer a ghostbuster version, which CT doesn't have yet.

    Quoted from GoneFishinLvMsg:

    I believe you are right, if I can remember Pinballlife carries "A-Blaze" and CoinTaker is different. Correct me if I am wrong but I believe the two carry different types and brands.

    #23 9 years ago

    Can you explain the ghostbuster version. I mean is it lighter, brighter, flashes faster? I cant find a youtube video on it.

    #24 9 years ago

    the bulbs do not ghost. ghosting is when they glow a bit when to bulbs are off. i have ordered from pinlife and ct. cointakers bulbs are simply brighter. however if you are on a budget the ablaze bulbs from pinlife are still better than regular bulbs. sometimes you can get great deals on colored bulbs. if you are lookin jus for an upgrade and money is tight pinlife if you are not concerned about money or jus want spectacular bulbs cointakers the way to go.

    #25 9 years ago

    if you are not concerned about money or jus want spectacular bulbs cointakers the way to go.

    You said it bro !!!! I've Led'd 30 or More Pin's , Color match the insert with the Super, Cotton swab it clean and Lite it up.. Coming Soon ,, CoinTaker's Full List of Ghost Proof led's.. I talked to Terry @ PinballLife,, he said he actually tore apart a Ghost-proof Led of his, He said there are 7 component's in that 1 led.. Terry know's Chris @ CT and Respect's him Alot,, CT has and is Still Improv-n the Led and coming up with New Item's All the time.. Salute !!!

    I installed the super LED package in my AFM and Cointaker is the best. I'll get more kits from them in the future. Super nice people to deal with.
