Getting a GB Premium and want to get a cover for it. eBay has a listing for a standard size cover and another listing for a New Stern size cover which costs more. Is there really a difference in size between the two?
If eBay is not the way to go please let me know where I should be looking. Thank you!

Stern use to sell these directly. As I recall they were pretty expensive. My memory say $500 or so.

Stern still sells their covers, we just bought one a couple months ago.

*edit* yup that one ^

Dang, the ones on eBay are under $100

Always happens, post 2 questions and only the second one gets answered.

Yes, apparently the Stern ones are slightly bigger, according to the guy who used to run pinball armor.
Awesome product. A-1 quality. Too expensive for more people unfortunately.

I have the pinball armor cover sold by Stern. I love it. Completely protects the machine.

Can you post a link to the ebay one? That seems super cheap.

Pretty sure a dust cover like that is different than the "armor" covers others are talking about. Yeah a dust cover will be much cheaper.

oh ya that is just a cover. The one Stern sells is actually padded armor that envelops the entire machine for transport. Very heavy duty.

The Stern one seems to be more for storage.
So for this dust cover, is the standard size smaller than the New Stern size or is it just a ploy to get more money?

Thanks for the Stern link. I am moving across the country and wanted some better protection for my games. I have a LUCI and did not want anything to happen to the cabinet. I hope these work well.

Just get a dust cover. Dust and UV protection is plenty.

The only drawback is pins are art and always nice to look at and you lose that when they're covered.

For mine I cover the lower cabinets only so I can still appreciate the uppers.

Hi all,
I'd like a fitted protected cover for pinball moving. Are the Stern Pinball (padded) Armor kits still available anywhere to buy...or can anyone suggest a current alternative?
