I don't understand what people are complaining about......
50 or 100 bucks more for a damn nice playfield that is probably already worth double if not triple the original value.
You know what guys, I am buying this playfield from Brian.
I am a FirePower fan and going to build a nice brand new machine around it that will make the whole thing factory new, just like I did with my GTB Black Hole.

Check it out and soon I will post the video here of my upcoming FirePower project:

Thanks you guys, and Brian of course, for letting me have this extreme unique item!!

Closed the deal with Brian last week.
I can not tell you how excited I am to get the playfield here and build the entire machine around it.
The cabinet will be reproduced, the artwork stenciled and an entire set of NEW boards will be inserted also.
Back in 2007 I redesigned the MPU, Driver, Sound/Speech & power supply boards for this game.
It was a run of 6 proto type sets, they all worked great and sold out within 2 weeks.
Meanwhile I improved the designs with better available and cheaper parts.
Also a NVRAM memory chip will be integrated to kick the batteries of these MPU boards.
Just too many times while repairing these boards I ran into that nasty corrosion.
The MPU and driver boards will connect through a regular 40 pin IDE connector;
No more mechanical connections, stress and terrible oxidation on these boards.
It is going to be awesome, a factory new FirePower in 2014/2015.
Only thing I really need is a NEW plastics set from CPR.
They are sold out but I know someone out there is sitting on a set and not using it.
If you have a set, PM me.

I got the playfield.
I redesigned the power supply; sound speech board, MPU & driver board.
All started from scratch, brand new parts and new additions to the designs.
I might post pictures soon.
As soon as I have all the electronics completed I will start building the new cabinet.
Meanwhile I am collecting all new and NOS hardware and parts to make this one factory rolled out new.

I am waiting for my playfield rotisserie table.
Been collecting plastics, hardware, wire and all loose stuff to get going.
Meanwhile also updated the PCB designs for power supply, driver and main board.
The sound speech board has been revamped too.
Thinking about going with red color circuit boards, FIRE all the way.
I also integrated a NVRAM chip for the memory backup; no more batteries on this board set either!
Yes, I owe you pictures and they are coming.
Everything factory new and 2015 upgraded....... gonna be a hell of a machine.
Will post asap.
