New member of the club, picked up a Robocop. Been pretty fun so far! All I need now are plastics and the red and blue plastics in the top corners of the backbox / translite

I was looking for the serial # of my Robocop and want to make sure I interpreted the right #. Where are they located on these Data East machines. The little gray Data East stickers, correct?

Quoted from locustgrovepin:

Ended up rewiring the harness from the transformer up to the back box. Found where there had been overheating in the past and came across a couple wires in the black conduit that had exposed wires I can't believe the game was even working. Someone had over fused it at some point and there must have been smoke rolling out of this thing.
Replaced that burned up power supply with a new one, and now I'm waiting on the left wire form to get back from powder coating.
I could use some replacement plastics for this game if anyone has some they want to sell.


Seeing as it's a Data East machine are you going to do the flipper mod? I have broken Robocop plastics as a result of the rocket flipper they put on the left side of their machines. Haven't been able to find replacements.

Quoted from locustgrovepin:

Is the mod to decrease flipper strength? I can see where it would be needed.

Yeah. It's a common move by Data East owners. A quick search will yield dozens of threads on it, I'm sure. It's a known thing and huge culprit of every DE machine having broken plastics all over.

Quoted from Gerrard17:

Just got a Robocop that needs to be restored! Can't wait! Got a NOS backglass from Mayfair Amusements now need a scan of the target practice plastic... anyone able to help me out there?

I need them too. There's a big need for them. I need the plastics on the slings and the middle bank.

Anyone know where I can find a flipper mounting base plate for Robocop? One of the "legs" is broken off on the right side and the entire flipper unit sits "lower" to the underside of the playfield, causing the flipper to drag very slightly on the top of the playfield.
