Quoted from TigerLaw:

I really can’t believe I missed those plastics that were for sale. I knew I needed them then and just didn’t check the thread at that time. Ah well, if anyone hears of more being ran somewhere or if someone doesn’t need the one I’m in desperate need of and wants to sell it please let me know. Thanks.

Those plastics sold pretty fast. All 4 set were gone in a hour.

Sort of reminds me of the Black Knight. Just paint a little black Emu feather on top of his head and you are good to go!

That face is hilarious.

I'm looking for a left sling if anyone has one. Can be old and yellow. Thanks.

I have the same issue with my playfield... in the same area.
I'm hoping to find a good quality scan so that I can recreate the art.
Might try a combination of airbrush work and maybe making a few rub-on transfers for the detail work (especially the black layer).

#110 3 months ago

You could paint his whole body black like a ninja lol

#111 3 months ago

I already have a handle on the original art. Going to prob have lots of the play field when im done.

I am thinking more in the scratch and sniff direction. We can have is smell like sweaty dojo when you get slingshot action.

If you hold off and wait till I finish the vector drawings I can cut and send you a stencil kit for the fix.

Awesome, thank you!

Even the vector art would suffice if it's broken up in layers by color. I could use it to order some rub-on transfer decals for the harder parts.
You can see the process I went through on this thread. First with stencils... and later with the rub-on stuff.

Kind of diggin' the Fu-Man-Chu version!

#118 3 months ago

I was able to use my Dragonfist in the league yesterday. Thank you to those of you who sent me suggestions on how to stop the ball hang up without the plastic, they worked.

If anyone notices a set of plastics come up for sale please send me a pm in case I don’t check this thread. Thank you.

#119 3 months ago

Our Dragonfist is playing really great now thanks to the suggestions on the plastic issue. We would still enjoy discovering some replacement plastics. Does any one have any plans to make any any time soon??

#120 3 months ago

Has anyone here swapped out their red drop targets for new white ones?

I'm trying to find 2-3 original red ones. If anyone has an incomplete set of reds and is willing to sell the used ones, please send me a PM

Thanks!

Also shy 3 reds for the front set. I’ll be putting new whites on the front bank until some day some reds show up.

Could use some blues for viper too

#122 3 months ago

I think your best bet is to use a dye to make the white ones red.

Quoted from Tsskinne:

That might work. I have dyed some of white acorn nuts dark green with some of that RIT dye.
It was easy to do.

You would to have some scrap plastic and a stop watch and practice to get the right shade of red. The coloring will sneak up on you; At first you will be thinking “is this ever going to work” and 5 seconds later it worked and now it is too dark.

Good idea.

I have not played my Dragonfist for awhile as I have been busy with other pins and life in general. I bought a set of those plastics that were offered several weeks ago. I have them installed but I have fully protected them from play field hazards, yet. I got lucky. From here forward I will not play until I get my new plastics protected with some polycarbonate underlay.

Here is the part everybody is dying for. I just found out how they get broken. I got lucky. This will not happen again. I should have the fix in 1-2 days and I will post the protector that I make.

A piece of .030" polycarbonate, cut to pattern, will stop this problem of the broken plastic.

IMG_0974 (resized).JPGIMG_0975 (resized).JPGIMG_0981 (resized).JPG

One last thing to do is remove a rebound pin, install a spacer, and screw the tail end down with a small wood screw. So I drilled and countersunk a hole for a #4 screw.

IMG_0985 (resized).JPG

I added a little extra material on the inboard side that should take any impact of ball hits. This plastic is never going to break.

I ripped 66 spins this morning. Previously, my best was 58 spins. It is hard to think in terms of a spinner rotating that many times.

I know this will not grant me full membership into the club, but thought maybe I could gain Pledge status?

I will probably enjoy gazing at it for awhile. . . but Ive already talked with another Pinsider needs it more than I do.

Should see if Mirco will remake them like he did quicksilver for everyone.

That play field is in very good condition.

Agreed. Would love to replace mine with something like that. Easy to restore that playfield.

You know how when you see something that looks sort of out of the ordinary and after you see it you cannot un-see it. I just made an observation on Dragonfist that fits the "cannot un-see " catagory.

This pic is of the middle set of drop targets. Notice how the "X" insert lines up with the red special insert and the orange Extra ball insert. And the "X" is sort of facing the player.

IMG_1694 (resized).JPG

Next up is the left hand set of drop targets. With this you can see that, due to space contraints, the "X" insert not inline with the special and extra ball inserts. And the "X" insert has a point of view that is looking directly at the player.

IMG_1695 (resized).JPG

And lastly, here are the first set of drops on the upper right hand side of the play field. Like the left hand set off drop targets, the "X" insert is offset from the special and extra ball inserts. Now, here comes the part you will not be able to un-see. Look at the "X" insert. It is lined up to face the drop targets, which is completely opposite of the "X" insert on the left hand side.

IMG_1698 (resized).JPG

I "borrowed" Tractordoc's Dragonfist play field pic so you can see all "x" inserts in relationship to each other. To my line of thinking, the "X"s should be facing the player just as the bonus numbers are facing the player. This is no big deal and it knowing it will not make you play better or worse. But here forthwith, you will never be able to look at a Dragonfist and un-see these "X"s. To me, that upper right hand "X" just does not look right.

Some of you might recall that I worked with CPR to get Dragonfist plastics produced. Well they just released them last night. Here's the page: https://classicplayfields.com/shop/pinball-plastics/dragonfist/

Enjoy!

Great news!
Now we just need to convince Kevin to make backglasses and playfields too

It's great to see a rare pin like this getting some support. I know plastics are relatively easy compared to the other items CPR makes, but I never imagined that I would ever be able to get repro parts for some of my more rare titles like this one, Quicksilver or even Defender. The economics of it just didn't add up. I guess new processes changed the game a bit and made low run production feasible.

i know stu is working on the backglass artwork. he said he would do the playfield artwork if someone would step-up and send him a nice playfield to work from. problem is, everybody "wants" but not many are being pro-active these days and searching out source materials for the stuff they want made............

Nice. I'd also offer mine up, but I'm only willing to take the top side stuff off. Pretty nice original. I can get pics this weekend.
