I'm please to announce that I've entered into a distribution agreement with Pinball.Center and now have immediate stock of their Frosted Clear drop targets for modern Sterns, retro Williams, and old school Data East machines.

Use these drop targets anywhere you want to backlight them with LEDs as seen here on Pinside with 3D printed varieties. Unlike the 3D printed varieties; these are injection molded out of Polycarbonate (Lexan) in Germany for maximum resilience until man can mass produce Transparent Aluminum.

From now until Oct 1st; I'm having a sale on these targets while supplies last. For now Frosted "Clear" Polycarbonate Drop targets in three styles (as a market test):
Modern Stern $5.57 (sale) Stern
Legacy Williams $4.80 (sale) Williams
Data East $4.80 (sale) Data East

How sexy would lit Bally targets be in a game like Xenon where the lights are controlled !

Question. The data easy ones look like they would be the same as earily Gottlieb. I have drop target assembly out of a system 1 torch in my custom game. And these would hold up much better.
Can anyone confirm or deny if DE will fit Gottlieb sys 1.

The slots on the DE targets look lower to me. Using this as a reference:
http://stevekulpa.net/pinball/g1dt-09.jpg from http://stevekulpa.net/pinball/gott1-dt.htm shows some differences around the slot and spring hook areas.

I've uploaded measurements I took from a single sample here and on the product webpage if you want to measure your drops for compatibility.

Almost positive DE targets DON'T match the Gottlieb mold. They might match Game Plan though.

Yup. Won’t fit. Hanks for the measurements. Just verified. Bummer.

Yes to Bally versions, been wanting this for Centaur...

Here's an example of the DE targets lit:

zitt keep me in mind if they ever make the system 1 drops. I need something strong but it’s a bit late to change drop target assembly’s. Plus they are hard to find at a decent price.

Rats, no CC targets.

#Cactus canyon?
The Williams targets won't work.?

Chicago Coin?

Not sure myself what he's asking. epthegeek please be more specific. Even a part number would help.
Pinball.Center offers a lot more part numbers. I only ordered these three styles as a market test.

The cactus canyon targets that are held up by a pulsed coil. They’re slightly different. But they were designed to be lit. Was always a bummer that they didn’t figure out a material that wouldn’t snap in time for production.

A lighted target would look great on term 2. You will sell tons of these! Nice work and fair price.

That sounds like a highly specialized single use (game specific) product.
Was it used by any other game? Not according to marco pinball.
If not; I don't see there being a snowballs chance given the relatively low numbers of Cactus canyon machines built (903) vs left vs modded.

Can you provide me with a specific part number?
I can always ask Pinball.Center if he can run them. (I'm guessing; he doesn't have a mold for it - if true; it's going to be unlikely)

The gottlieb part number for a target with a star is A-13179. I would need blank. I don't see a part in my book for a blank. I may be switching banks on account of clear targets you can get. Leaning toward wiliams system 3-7 since I never seem them break.
