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

They sent out an email on the topic to detail it.

In short, these are going to be made the right way and will be bent and shipped bent. They will be made out of a slightly ticker wood so more robust at the cut/bend and better than originals for that point alone.

They will make ONLY the # ordered.

They need at least 40? commitments in order to make these and will not do any over run. In other words, this is a 1 and done forever sort of thing. So even if you dont have a Joust but plan on getting on down the road, then now is the time to order.

They are looking for pre-order commitments now to get official #s but they will happen pretty quickly/ bump to the front once they get to 40+ orders

Get on it and spread the word please!

#2 5 months ago

What's the commitment number up to at this point?

The cost is 1200 for those not clicking through to CPR's site.

John

no idea and guessing they will tell us when it gets close to 40 (if they need a few more) or surpassed 40 (so we can all rejoice)

Email just went out on Sat? Hoping people commit soon as this is a top 3 that I would like to restore.

#5 5 months ago

I am in , and would love to see this made. What are the chances the plastics could be done again as well?.

#6 5 months ago

Nice! This will mean we will get some restored Jousts floating around soon. Always good news.

#7 5 months ago

I'm in for two of these. This is pretty cool.

Thanks Hilton , message sent.

#10 5 months ago

Bump and tell your friends!

#11 5 months ago

I'd be interested if I could find a game.

#12 5 months ago

never seen this game for sale locally

#13 5 months ago

how can we find out how many are on the preorder list? has to be getting close to 40. I'd think anyone who owns this should be interested in buying one if they know about it.

#14 5 months ago
Quoted from KoolFingers:

This is honestly one of those times where you may have to buy the pf before the game so you have it when the game comes along. I do that for lots of titles.

#15 5 months ago
Quoted from PopBumperPete:

Like most titles down here, look beyond the local online cliques for your benchmark and you will.

I know of two individual machines that have changed hands in the last 24 months whose previous and new owners maintain no local forum presence.

No doubt there are more that fit into this category.

#16 5 months ago

bump

Get in now before you can no longer get in...

#17 5 months ago

I love that they are making these! More Joust playfields means more chances to buy a restored one down the road.

#18 5 months ago

Bump for a great game.

#19 5 months ago

Great game bump.

#20 5 months ago

I believe they are nearly sold out. Can't wait to get mine.

kevin and I spoke the other day about the up-coming on demand playfield plastics and did mention that he was floored at the response of people re-confirming their positions on the list

I'm currently working to get the 4 brackets underneath the playfield reproduced (the ones that hold the 2 halves of the playfield to 170°
these will be installed by CPR after the playfields are screened

after that, I believe my next task will be to construct the cardboard packaging triangles so that the pre-bent playfields can be shipped without any worry or concern

#25 4 months ago

Thx for your efforts!

#26 4 months ago

Is wonder if any anyone will repro the marquee plastics on the sides? Seems like most are faded.

Quoted from Whysnow:

I've reached out to james loflin on these a number of times but apparently the original molds were never located for either the thinner targets (as found in the 3-bank drops) or the tombstone, roll over topped ones that feature an inverted "T" base

planetary pinball sells replacement stickers for the face of the targets, however since they are sold in sets of 4, you would need to purchase 4 sets for a complete set of stickers (4 for the tombstone roll over targets and 12 for the four 3-bank drop targets

If you signed up to commit for this CPR Joust pf, then check your email. Things just got interesting and quite the deal for those that are going the CPR route.

#31 82 days ago

Like someone else mentioned, I would just love to find one of these games!

#32 82 days ago

Not trying to start shit here, but as an interested party as I own the game what's going on at CPR ???

Mirco just posted this today on Facebook

Hi All!

I have just finished Joust playfields. They are available for shipping right now.

The playfields are already bowed and fixed with two steel brackets for transport.

Due to our process with the use of several Robots we have only one perfect quality level. So everybody will recieve the same playfield.

We use a Robot to apply a custom made clearcoat which is very shiny and smooth. Same clearcoat is used for our JJP and American Pinball playfields.

All playfields are completely drilled and dimpled and will be shipped in a 3 layer special made cardboard box which lasts more than 220 pounds. I use Fedex priority which is insured and usually takes 2-3 business days worldwide.

They are 1099$ shipped to the USA.

Additional Pictures can be found on my Facebook page.

Regards,
Mirco

P.S.: Next playfields will be Fish Tales, Black Hole and Haunte Hause.

All playfields I made are available and are in stock.

In short, if you are interested in a Joust pf then email CPR right now.

They sent an email to everyone on the committed list with details of what the are offering and to me the choice is clear, esp if you want plastics and aprons for your joust.

#34 81 days ago

I appreciate the PMs and for people setting me straight on the information by far and away it's clear that the choice would be a CPR playfield for this purchase. A lot of time and investment for the past four years for Kevin and the CPR boys.

awesome and looking forward to it!

It would probably be quicker to just build one from scratch with the CPR playfield.

Such a simple game with so few parts.

Why would you get on the CPR list when Mirco has them already made? Because CPR is threatening to not give people who buy Mirco the plastics and Apron. Maybe CPR should not have sat on this title for years on end?

Quoted from Squeakman:

many reasons to support the company that took the time to draw the art in the good old US with pinheads at the helm.

They clearly did not "sit on this" as it took many years to gauge the interest and even find at least 50 people willing to commit in advance. once they got enough commitments, then they pushed forward.

#1 reason to support them is I committed to them years ago by putting my name on the pre-order/ interested list.
#2 reason is that they have better wood quality (my opinion and experience when comparing the 2 companies)
#3 reason is that i can get plastics and aprons if i order through them. This is honestly huge and anyone sinking this kind of money into a resotration is going to want to do it up right. I think under the circumstances it only make sense for them to work it this way.
#4 is that I do not support the idea of purposefully duplicating a limited title like this and Mirco made a conscious decision to do so for poor reasons. I will not reward that and in fact I will avoid buying pfs from him unless no other option.

#40 70 days ago

I have to jump in here and put something right.

I have decided to run joust at tpf this year when several people where asking me if I cannot do it as CPR still has it in the maybe we could run it some time or maybe we do never do it zone.

As soon as they heard that I do it the title moved up in the line of next playfields. At that time i have already pushed the art into preparation. So to say I tried to kill their business is nonescence. To be honest - I don't care what titles they do and do not try to hurt them. If I would try to do that I would sell the joust for example at 800$ or less. But i don't do that. So please don't accuse me here for something without knowing the right facts.

Regards,
Mirco
