Just an announcement that the CPR Skateball playfields are now coming out of clearcoat, thus the release begins.

A gallery has been posted here:

http://www.classicplayfields.com/photo194.html

As always, we will be emailing the Preorder group in waves. That means 25-30 emails go out a week, to allow orderly payment and shipping, until every Preorder respondent has been parsed. This will take about 3 weeks.

Then we move onto the Waiting List folks, for any leftovers or extras available at the end. They get about 2 weeks to finish up.

Then if there are any leftovers after all that, they go public for general sales on our web site.

Ha! this is of those that I know I didn't, but kinda wish I did. With ~10 preorders placed this past year I ought to lay off the sauce anyhow....

Hilton,

You didn't have a Preorder in, but you are on the Waiting List from your signup October 19, 2016. We'll see what happens for abandonments this run... most runs the last 2 years have been over 40% no-shows... and the entire Waiting List got served. So history may work in your favor.

I'd almost forgotten that CPR sends a nice confirmation email when you preorder, like this:

Time to dust off the skateboard. Love me some Skateball

#10 2 years ago

With only so many NOS Bally Skateball playfields to go around, I'm sure this will be the next best thing!

Just sent my payment in for this one! Thanks again CPR for keeping the old games alive.

#12 2 years ago

Kevin, thanks for all you guys do. I know I'm on the list and looking forward to getting this, but after looking at the pictures I was a bit concerned about the colors being off from the originals. Is that just the lighting and the photos or is there an actualy difference? I specifically noticed it in the greens and blues. Regardless I'm sure they are a great product and definitely better than whatever is sitting in 99% of the games out there.

Is there anyone doing a CPR Skateball playfield swap and their old playfield is half-way decent? I just picked up a major project of a Skateball and the playfield is pretty blown out. I don't want to stick a ton of money into the game, as I also need to find a backglass and all of the circuit boards (except the power supply). I'm in Wisconsin and will be at the MGC in a few weeks if anyone has a deal to work out.

I did a playfield swap on Skateball about ten years ago, might still have the old playfield in storage somewhere. Not sure of the condition so I will take a look in the next week or so and get back to you.

#18 2 years ago

Should arrive Monday for me.

#19 2 years ago

Still waiting for my email!!

Anybody heard from CPR lately? I got my purchase email on March 1st and paid for the playfields on March 2nd. The playfields show that shipping label was created on 3/13/17, but the playfields have not moved since then. I have contacted CPR a couple of times over the last two weeks and have not received a response. I have probably bought a dozen playfields, three or fore backglasses, and probably 30 plastic sets and have never had a problem.

#25 2 years ago

Yes, Kevin has been out of town. He is still waiting on getting playfields back from the clearcoater but said he expects them back any day now.

#26 2 years ago

hoping they make it doen the waitlist to me

#27 2 years ago

I got my shipping notification today so mine's on its way.

Silver

#33 2 years ago

interested in finding CPR Gold playfield for sale.

#34 2 years ago

I'm looking to buy a decent used Skateball playfield. I have a beater of a game and a completely blown out playfield, so if someone is doing a playfield swap and has a decent playfield they want to sell, PM me.

#35 2 years ago

I'm super happy with my gold PF. The registration and insert alignment are the best I've ever seen, perfect. There are a few tiny flecks above the rollovers that will be mostly invisible during gameplay. The purple looks good, and the details and colors look great! Nice work, guys. My iPhone pic doesn't do justice to this beautiful work of art.

BTW the glitch above the 3 yellow arrows is a bad light reflection, not a defect.

I was on the standby list and got an email about it. I bought a bronze. That's all they had left. I got it a few weeks ago. It's not perfect, but still very nice.
