Is someone planning on doing F14 Repro playfields anytime soon? I've seen rumors, but an exhaustive Google search comes up empty.

#2 5 years ago

Mostly rumors, people keep begging CPR, maybe Planetary but I have heard nothing confirmed.

#3 5 years ago

I'm pretty sure I saw that PPS said they should be coming out in February, but hopefully he'll chime in and confirm.

#4 5 years ago

Seems like a no brainer with how many were produced.

#6 5 years ago

Awesome news!

Quoted from PPS:

F-14 playfields are in the queue, so hopefully that will provide a solution as well.

Quoted from PPS:

F-14 is ideally Feb, 2014, possibly later with any delays.

#7 5 years ago

This is awesome news! So this February by PPS tentatively? Thanks for the info!

I have a f14 playfield I picked up from a guy , looks like it was barely played and just sat in storage, so a little grungy. Have removed the mylar without pulling any paint. Shoot me a message if interested in photos.

Has anyone heard anything yet ?

#14 5 years ago

Anyone from Planetary have any timeline ?

#15 5 years ago

Rick from planetary is pretty accessible, both here on pinside and on the phone. Why not just call him or message him directly and ask?

Then you can post the answer for us.

#16 5 years ago

I emailed him a couple of weeks back asking about timing. I got the following reply...

"Probably april ... it's another supplier, so I tell people what they tell me
and then I push them, but april is probably the month now."

#17 5 years ago

I hope this pans out soon! I've got a F-14 begging for a new playfield!

#18 5 years ago

Great news that PPS is planning on reproduction playfields. My recent purchase could definitely use a new PF.

Anybody heard anything more on this? Trying to decide if I should start replacing inserts or wait a bit longer .

#21 5 years ago

I checked in with Rick around a week ago, but he's stopped giving estimates on availability as folks get fed up if the dates are missed. He said that the supplier has every incentive to get them done sooner rather than later. Apparently the playfields are cut/routed, the inserts are made and the artwork is ready. So I'm just going to sit and wait, my F14 is on hold until then.....

Enough of this! I have now decided to proceed with my original playfield. Wish me good luck.

Yes they are being made. Seen them firsthand. Patience is a virtue

You've seen bigfoot too?

#26 5 years ago

Been an imminent project for a long time. I went with the playfield protector for the time being (still to be reassembled). If/when they do come out I'll have to consider getting one. But if the protector works well, the new pf may be wall art for awhile since the pf swap is a whole different level of work.

#27 5 years ago

Wouldn't they wait until 2017 and then release a 30th Anniversary PF?

That would just be wrong.

They will now! Thanks dude... Lol, Im kidding... that is an unconsidered possibility, but I think that is too "deep". In this day and age of cash, cash, cash (lol, what "age" wasn't like that other than "Stone"), I think they will be selling and shipping at the first possible moment.

LOL. If they were smart they'd put out a repro now, and in 3 years release a 30th anniversary edition. Then all the suckers that buy one now will want the 30th version as well. Suckers like me.

#31 5 years ago

After doing a playfield swap on my Firepower, and enjoying the much improved look and feel, I'm actually considering buying an F-14 playfield where I wasn't before. It plays decent now and with the LEDs on, it looks good, but the inserts have the expected wear and faded blue inserts. Hmmmmmm.

#32 5 years ago

Sometimes i feel like this is never going to actually come out !

#33 5 years ago

The more people that take the time to make a request, instead of moaning on here, the closer you will get.

I would really like to understand how they come up with timing on repros of stuff....I see many things on there and was wondering why they did this, or that game when there is sooo many more popular ones...

I have, And have been told for months to just be patient. All good thing comes to those who wait i guess.

I wish rick would have just given the rights to CPR

I think all the pf makers are loaded up with WOZ, MMRE and Hobbit pf's, so f14 took the back burner.

and how would that help ... CPR has got a long queue of projects well into next year ...

rick

Can't be any longer than your list of projects.

#41 5 years ago

Hehehe. We are not trying to be offensive, we just LOVE F-14 and are dieing for a new Playfield!

Any update on antipated release for this, Rick?

#42 5 years ago

Yeah don't let the haters bring you down Rick! Can't wait for the f-14 field.

#43 5 years ago

Thanks for all you do Rick for pinball. I'm sure when they are done they will be awesome.

#44 5 years ago
Quoted from PPS:

good response.

Just man up and tell us the project isn't happening until 2016

What the hell?
Is it coming out or not?

#49 4 years ago

i'll just be happy when the Blue and red arrow inserts are available to buy. Restored plenty of F14's with cracked fins on those inserts. but the blue ones are impossible to find and the red ones I had to import from Aussie.

This. My playfield needs only minor touchup, but I can't start restoring it because I need those arrows. I don't want a repop playfield, just want to restore my original.
