Any chance of the smaller Banzai Run backglass that houses the score displays?

Kevin are these new releases your old art files that produced your original runs? Or are they now printed from your scans of NOS examples?

#214 1 year ago
Quoted from KevinCPR:

It's always in-house vector-redrawn artwork. That applies to everything that was spot-color (blackline with multiple solid color fills). We never just printed scans. Ever.
In the case of the "oil painting" or "watercolor" original artwork - like on some of the backglasses - then yes, we are going back to our original NOS RGB scans and rebuilding new 2018 files, so we avoid the CMYK conversions and lab linescreening that had to be done to make silkscreen film sets for our past repro runs. Which due to technical reasons, had to be half the resolution of NOS, at best. Now those glasses, from this point forward, will be as detailed and sharp (and color-correct) as we can possibly do. Almost indistinguishable from an original NOS.

Thanks for clarifying Kevin. So as an example, the Medusa backglass that is now listed will be a very accurate copy of an NOS original both in terms of resolution/detail and the colors?

Quoted from KevinCPR:

Yes. You got it. The best that a repro of a Medusa glass is ever going to get. (Without going back in time and doing it using the exact original methods, and from original negatives).

I'll check and find out what's up with the Medusa Plastics for you guys.

Great, thanks Mike. Do you have an ETA for the release of the Diner playfields?

Quoted from CPR:

Diner playfields are ready to ship, we are just trying to get some of the Harlems out first to make room. Kevin said today he would do some photos and start send people their invoices right away.

Beauty! I've been on the Diner list for years, really looking forward to that one.

Quoted from bluespin:

Shay Arcade Group has the license, and this title, Black Hole and Haunted House have been in the works for probably a year. I’ve emailed him twice and left a voice message. He never replied. I’ve had the same feedback from others. He makes excellent products and communicates well for orders of in stock products, but for everything else he’s a poor communicator.

Unfortunately, this is all entirely very accurate. Fathom has suffered the same fate. Shay hasn't produced a new title in quite sometime. Ron Webb is in a similar position.
