Hey all, I just recently picked up parts of a rare machine "Thunder Man". I managed to get a fully populated playfield and the backglass.

As the topic title suggests I have a problem, unfortunately the seller did not take the required care with the backglass when shipping this rare title and as a result of this I now have a cracked backglass... (well at least I think it's a backglass.. Please correct me if I'm wrong, this is my second machine, my first didnt have a backglass)

As far as I can tell the glass is clearly cracked in several locations, there even appears to be a bend in the frame. To me it looks like some of the art has torn slightly, I have not yet attempted to look into it any further until I get some professional opinions, so the photos I have is how it sits right now.

What are my options as I'll never find another one?

Looks like you can order one here. It'll probably take 6 mos but you'll get one.

Thanks for the suggestions guys, I'm from Australia so would probably cost a fortune. Still might be worth the contact though so I'll give it a go.

is it just me or is that reproduction one look off in colour, I feel that the colours on mine are more vibrant. Possibly a scan of a slightly faded backglass.

Yeah the colors won't match. it seems to be common with that supplier. Unfortunately for rare titles it's an option even if it's not perfect. Better than a broken glass.
